I only buy via online sites. Fril is the best!

Princess OP from Meta, which was a collab with Maniax. I’ve only ever seen it for sale once, and the listing was years old. Also the Meta One Piece collab OP! That comes up more often, but not nearly enough.

Lots of makeup.

Very brave! I only wore offbrand to one. I don’t think I could risk any brand.

69 What do you think of people that don't wear makeup with lolita fashion?
Sometimes it clashes a bit with how extravagant coords can be, but you do what’s comfortable for you.

Wear Lolita whenever you want, from whenever you can afford it.

72 In what situation do you think you would have to stop wearing Lolita?
If it stopped making me happy.

74 Do you have any thoughts about what a Lolita should be like?
A lolita should be herself, that’s all.

As long as you put effort into your outfit, it doesn’t matter how you identify.

77 Since wearing Lolita has anything about changed from before?
I pay attention to the quality of clothing now, especially lace.

Most of them like it! Once a lady mentioned she wished she had the confidence to wear my coord and it made me feel really good.

Yes, per the last question!

Nothing specifically, but I will only wear accessories that I liked how they came out. So, I suppose all of them.

I admire all my friends for their confidence, grace, and caring personalities.

91 For one day you can go on a date with that special persion. They will also be wearing their favourite clothes. So who is it, what are you wearing and where is the date?

A shop that sells Gyaru and Lolita! Everything is pink.

Only if they want to!

96 This is a Lolita! If you think there's a gesture like that please tell us.
Not a gesture per say, but the silhouette of 2010 sweet and old school. Rocking horse shoes too!

97 Even if it's only one time I wanna wear it! Is there something you want to wear other than Lolita?
If I want to wear it, I’ll wear it!
