My Kind of Lolita

And a better lolita lifestyle. *Scoff* Don't even. I'm not calling it "better" as a general term meaning "I am holier than thou", I mean it as in I see it as a better alternative to the typical lolita. I, too, am surprised how often I keep coming back to this style...*sigh*

This other version of what I originally thought of lolita before I was bombarded by the pink and deco and fake-ass poses and whatnot. I was reminded about this after my previous lolita-related entry. As I said,

When I pictured lolita, I always saw it as doll-like, delicate and elegant.
Not childish, which is what I've seen a lot of online and elsewhere. Also, this whole damn entry is just me telling you what I'd wear in the near future, Inshallah. Wanna try it out? Go on...but I'd like to see it done RIGHT, like how egl and ega are "politically correctly" only those when you wear Mana-sama's brand, you know what I mean?


Best example of this style? Mana-sama, of course. Not even his protégé, Kanon Wakeshima, is a good example, because she's more sweet and classic, to me. The style probably has a name, but I love naming things, especially styles, and even more so when I wear/make them up. So I dub it...gothic guignolita. AHAHAHA, that sounds HORRIBLE! But it sounded better in my head, y'know. Whatever. GG. I'll keep that as a dub, for now, not a "final" name. Or guignolita for short...and even poppita.

The first name is a merging of Guignol, which is actually a French puppet, with lolita, of course. However, I also like to use good ol' Guignol's name for puppets in general, as I do the word "popet", which is a chiefly British term for a darling when spelled poppet, but comes from the Middle English term meaning a puppet, small child or, in this case, a doll. I like both dub names, really~ They're just...really weird, I guess.

So. What are poppita and guignolita? Well, they're exactly how I envisioned lolita in the very beginning, as I said before. Decadent...elegant...sophisticated...mature...and NOT CUTE as much as dark and/or eerie/creepy, no matter what color you wore. Overall, though, it can be categorized under or related to gothic and aristocrat, as both styles can be incorporated. The poppita manner is defined by an ethereal elegance in movement and soft words, if ever, and very doll-like overall. Stiff movement is saved for guignolita, where one cannot move well on their own without help from their strings...

Doesn't matter what other theme you in corporate into guignolita and poppita, meaning ero, wa, kodona, ouji, aristocrat, qi, and even punk when done RIGHT, which would make for a more cirque look (as well as ero, in some ways).'d be cirque in place of punk, but they're pretty much the same...when done right.

Makeup is optional for guignolita to have paint-on joints and round, rosy cheeks. Makeup for poppita? Never too much, unless you were part of a cirque~ Accessories? Never too much; a perfect balance. Nothing cute and childish, *ahem*. We're going for the theme and practical, here, practical. Teacups on your head? Well, of course that is an exception, if I'm thinking you want a more dark Alice in Wonderland as well. Teacup rings? No pastel colors. Cake on your head?...That's just silly...So go on, aristocrats! Wear them teacups and cards on yer head! BE A MAD HATTER!

Mannerisms...aside from what I know...poses. *Scoff* Mana-sama poses. What else is there to say? The man's my crown KING Idol when it comes to lolita and aristocrat. So study 'em. I sure am...

I can totally see myself wearing these styles. I'm going to have to clean up this entry, since it's all over the place, but this is great. I'll look at another lolita style the same way again~!! I can't waaaait, Inshallah...!!!
