I got this idea from reading Ravensnow’s post who got the idea from Nefferinthia got the questions from Naomi’s How to Become an Angel GeoCities site now that all credit has been given to each question let’s get into it!
１ Please tell us your name, birthday, and where you’re from.
I’m from the mountains, my birthday is February 19th and on the internet I go by Liliana Rowena
２ What is your height, weight, clothes size and shoe size?
My height is 5’4″, I weight 177.1 but am working on getting to a healthy BMI so I can start pointe. I wear anywhere between a 12-16 depending on the brand but all men’s mediums fit me. My shoe size is 7
３ Why did you start wearing Lolita Fashion?
I was looking for a prom dress my junior year of high school and happened upon a simple black a line OP from Mary Magdalene and instantly fell in love. My heart fell at the sizing and the price but over time I found FanPlusFriend and bought the Doctor Who skirt as I loved the show at the time. I saw it and immediately thought that that was something that could be all my own. I come from a split family and my parents were very young so they pushed a lot of their ideals and trauma on me. One family made fun of anything remotely feminine and the other pushed some rather age inappropriate sense of style, but Lolita Fashion was something all of my own. It still is today
４ What’s your favourite genre (style) of Lolita?
That’s so hard! I’m kind of currently in a mini identity crisis so it’s all pretty fluid but I have a weak spot for old school and bittersweet. Classic is quickly growing on me
５ Express in your own words, the ideal of your above answer.
Basically anything that makes my heart jump for joy honestly if I see it and gasp that’s what I look for in a garment
６ Do you have any piercings, and if so how many?
I have only my ears pierced but am honestly considering a belly button piercing in the future.
7 What is your favourite brand?
That’s also really hard! My taste in music is really fluid but if I had to pick a music group I’m really into currently I’d have to say Iris the J-pop group, but if I’m in a different mood I am also a big fan of Panic! at the Disco
８ What is your favourite piece of clothing?
My favorite is still the very first skirt I bought! Fanplusfriend’s Timelord Cyber Gothic Skirt
９ How many Lolita friends do you have?
I have around 10! I’ve been blessed with a lovely small and very accepting comm although we’ve had a boom in new members recently! Just this morning we had a virtual tea party
１０ What is the best thing about being a Lolita?
I get to live out all the princessy dreams I missed as a kid and it always gives me this ideal to strive for
１１ On the contrary, what is the worst?
It’s really expensive! I wish I could just magic myself the perfect wardrobe
１２ What magazine(s) do you read?
Cosmopolitan is one of my guilty pleasures honestly
１３ Headdresses vs Bonnets vs Ribbons (Headbands)?
I just ordered on of the lacy rectangle headdresses in pink and it is one of my new favorite things! But big headbows are also wonderful. I have never really tried a bonnet and I can only imagine the flood of Bo peep comments.
１４ Do you wear bloomers?
Only occasionally, I want to wear them more but the only pair I have no digs in so much it hurts to wear. I need to make some that fit
１５ Do you tie your headress in the front or the back?
I tie it in the back depending on the hairstyle in the front but I largely prefer the back
１６ Do you have a favourite music genre or band?
I love pure pop music! Upbeat and fast although I do really like dark lyrics accompanying it too, so anything I can dance to
１７ What is your phone ringtone?
I have the Tardis sound as my text alert but it’s usually on silent
１８ Do you go to lives/concerts in Lolita?
I don’t really go to concerts so no
１９ For those that go to lives/concerts, do you headbang?
２０ What colours do you like?
So many! My favorite is definitely a light pink! I really like purple, light blue, red, black and white but the color family of beiges is growing on me and is the inspiration of redoing my room
２１ What are your hobbies?
I have so many I think I may be trying to collect them all. I draw, sew, dance, sing, photograph, write and have instagram and youtube. I also enjoy cooking and baking
２２ What is your favourite perfume?
I don’t usually buy perfumes but I really want Bath and Bodyworks Strawberry poundcake lotion because it smells amazing!
２３ Being a Lolita, is there anything you are careful of?
No not really. Although I aspire to be the image of a collected maiden I’m really naturally a chaotic person
２４ Where do you usually hang out?
Anywhere my friends are! I don’t get to go very often but I much enjoy solo trips to local cafes as well
２５ How many times do you wear lolita a week?
When my depression isn’t acting up about 2-3 times a week at least sometimes every day!
２６ Please tell us an embarrassing story you are guilty of from your early days of wearing lolita.

２７ What is your hairstyle and hair colour now?
I have shoulder length straight brown hair with pink ends

No but I desperately want to! I don’t really have a robust wardrobe and a kind of unique taste in dresses I think so finding someone to twin with is kind of hard.

Working on that! I’d say I’m currently doing a lot of ballet and calorie counting but don’t go nuts and don’t hurt your mental health.
