Finally wearing my last (latest?) dream dress, Mary Magdalene’s Antoinette (re-release 2012). Due to post-grad study, this is probably going to be my only significant lolita purchase this year, but I think it was worth it. I had grand plans on (non-destructively) altering it with three big dusty pink shantung silk bows on the back (to make it bigger too), but it seems like I pretty much fit it without that now! I would love to get an ivory steel boned overbust corset to wear under this one day. Gotta bust out my rococo hat with this as well of course!
Sometimes I take photos too! Isn’t she perfect?
Too perfect for words!
omg i want all your flowers :3
A collection of Edwardian photographs, depicting some of the hairstyles of the time, like the Low Pompadour. Hatpin Hairstyle. Side-Swirls. Flapper (The title ‘Flapper’ originally referred to teenage girls
who wore their hair in single plait which often terminated in a wide ribbon bow.) & the pompadour.
Victorian Hairstyles Here [x]
Now more accurately, FLDS styles.
This is my kind of fashion (horror) show.
The Blonds Fall 2013
*This doesn’t even cover 1/4th of what I have saved in general *
*sobbing for life*
I usually save a bunch of refs before making a new character or design or something and since the group I’m doing this for decides to go for gothic lolita and I have a dude I had to google prince lolita fashion and saved a bunch of things then ot side tracked by steam punk and everything is disorganized.
*Falls over and leaves this here*
I just wanted my stuff alltogether so I can look at it without swapping tabs but watch as I use none of this and do something else I’m cry.

I apologize for having been absent from my blog for so long! Without further delay I present my ball gown worn for the 2012 Jane Austen Festival Ball in Bath, England held at the Pump Rooms in the Roman Bath. I was sewing on it up until the last night but I am very pleased with how it turned out!
