A couple weeks ago, I decided to join The Lolita Blog Carnival, which is basically a bunch of people, who decide a topic, which we're talking about in our blogs. It seemed like a fun idea, and I wanted to perk up my blog a bit, so I decided to join the group (｀・ω・´)”! I think I'm also getting a bit sick, so I haven't had any energy or time to dress up. I'm hoping to take some autumn (and especially Halloween ⊙ω⊙) themed pictures in some time soon. I wish that there's still some beautifully colored leaves in trees when I'm able to take the pictures.
Anyways let's get back to the topic, which is: your favorite print theme in lolita! Actually there's quite many themes I really love, but this is definately the number one theme I love.
I absolutely love everything related to magic and occultism. Maybe it's because I'm a pagan myself. I kind of like to represent the things I believe in with my clothing, jewelry and such and that's why I really like this theme. Halloween or Samhain is also one of my favorite holidays. Not only it's not the most important Sabbath of the year, it's also the time for everything creepy and scary. And don't I just love creepy and scary things. Whether the print is about witches, vampires or ghosts they're instantly on my must have list! Usually the colors of the brand's occult-themed prints are also really nice. Lots of dark and warm colors. Here are few of my favorite prints. Apparently Alice and the Pirates is kind of specified of releasing these kind of prints. That's one of the many reasons why I love this particular brand.
The first dress in the main title is Tarot card print, from Alice and the Pirates. Tarot reading is a very important for me. It's part of practicing my religion and it's also a good way of figurinng out things, that are bothering me and how to evolve my thinkind and the way I act.Last year I was able to get my hands to this dress. There are cards from the major arcana in the print, which are beautifully illustrated. This particular dress is very precious for me.
The Castle of Nightmare print from Alice and the Pirates, is an interesting print, with a lot of details. It's filled with bats, haunting pictures of empty dinner tables and empty rooms. You can almost imagine that there could be a faint shadow of a ghost lurking in the background. I also like the way the print is arranged in the dress. It's like you're part of the nightmare castle and these pictures are hanged on to you. I hope I'll get this piece of art to my closet someday.
One of the latest prints from Alice and the Pirates (AatP again, oh well (;-_-)/) is Merry Making in the Ghost Town! This is also totally in the head of my dream dress-list at the moment. I would like to have this dress in navy, because in my opinion the color is more like purple, which is my favorite color. As the title presents, the main theme of the print is about a ghostly town. The houses of the town look like my dream homes! In my opinion the print looks more of bunch of mansions, than a town. Nevertheless, I think it's a really beautiful print with lovely color combinations.
So that's about it. Let me know how did I do with my first Lolita Blog Carnival-post and what's your favorite theme in lolita in the comments! Have a nice weekend everybody!
