im going to be doing lolita for the first time sometime this year. i’m fairly young (13) and i’m trying my hardest to not look ita. my mom agreed to pitch in some cash but i plan on paying for most (money isnt a problem). my question is: is it alright that i just want to wear lolita fashion to a con? i’m not all that dedicated but i really admire the fashion and think it’d be fun to try out!
There is absolutely nothing wrong with wearing Lolita fashion to a con, or if it’s the only time you wear it. So long as the quality of the items themselves are good, and you do your research (which you’ve already stated you’re doing), then most Lolitas would have absolutely no problem with it. Most of the Lolitas I hang out IRL with generally only wear the fashion for cons or for meet ups, with the odd day here and there that they feel like wearing it.
You don’t have to be a lifestyle Lolita to enjoy the fashion. Just have fun with it!
Its clothes, dont let anyone tell you otherwise! Ive been doin lolita since I was your age (OP) and Im 25 now. The best thing I took out of it was to enjoy it on my own terms. Dont worry about what other people think and wear it wherever you want.
If you don't mind me asking, what is your religious preference? Sorry if this is too personal.
I dont mind. Uhh I guess id put myself somewhere between pantheist and pagan. I believe nature is the so called higher being and is defined by separate elements (water, earth, spirit, etc) to which I look to. I would consider myself a non-magic practicing witch.. meaning I like to take advantage of natural herbs and remedies for their benefits as created by nature for solving things tather than having a large magic based practice mine is heavy on herb properties. But Im still learning and gorwing.
for me religion is largely self defined and specific to the individual. And this is how I define myself at this point.
fun fact: once in biology my teacher told us that “if you’re ever crying wipe the tears all over your face and they’ll help clear up your skin” then he explained that because tears are designed to clear dust and dirt from your eyes and will do the same for your skin and clear up acne and i remember thinking “excellent, fandom will make me beautiful”
