Lifestyle Lolita thread! How can I make my daily life a little more loli? What are some loli elements you have in your life now, and what do you wish to have? Inb4 autists sperg up the thread because we're too loli for them.

I'd really like to lolify my room but I wouldn't even know where to start. I have so much junk and clutter and no where to put it. Maybe when I own my own place someday I'll just deck everything out in frills.

Couldn't you sell the junk? On that note, my room was pretty ugly for a while. I grew out of the style it was in. I just started collecting porcelain/embroidered handkerchiefs/doilies, and decorated my room one shelf at a time. I arranged the porcelain in an aesthetically pleasing manner, using boxes to give some of them height, and covered the boxes with the handkerchiefs/doilies.

I enjoy all of the basic bullshit (reading, cooking, crocheting, flower arranging, etc.) but probably spend too much time on the internet to be a "real" lifestyler. Also, I'm not sure when I'll ever settle down in one place long enough to actually lolify it.

You recalled incorrectly.
The Portuguese first arrived in the mid 16th century and were allowed for quite some time. The idea of Christian hell posed a problem for conversion, but it wasn't the reason they were kicked out. They were tolerated well enough under Nobunaga, but Hideyoshi, who came after, feared that Christianity and the recent converts were working to disrupt the social order.
Since his power/the power of the shogunate to follow was reliant on the status quo, they booted all of the foreigners and outlawed Christianity. Thus, the Dutch became practically the only Westerners allowed to interact with the Japanese for a few centuries, and even they were restricted to a small area.

God bless Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu, saviors of the Japanese from the Christian devil.

Emma, A Victorian Romance has a cute OST, and Kuricoder Pops Orchestra (and Chamber Quartet) makes a lot of cutesy music beyond their Azumanga Daioh OST. Yann Tiersen is kind of overrated, but I still like to think that he makes whimsical music that works well with the lolita aesthetic.

I can't help myself, I'll reply to the bait:

White people were the most backwards ass motherfuckers until approx. the 1800s, which is when Europe's Industrial revolution happened and you see all these ingenious inventions and scientific advancements coming from white folks.

Before that? Europeans were so disgusting and idiotic. When some of the first European explorers came to Japan, the Japanese were absolutely disgusted by them and their refusal to bathe. The Japanese have been bathing daily for centuries, whereas not too long ago Europeans bathed a few times a year and thought bathing was bad for you.

The Moors and Ottomans were waaaay more advanced than Europans throughout most of history, too. Basically one of the best places in Europe to be during the Bubonic Plague was Spain, because it was mainly inhabited by the Moors. The Moorish people actually had real doctors to care for people, doctors that realized that washing their hands was necessary and that praying wasn't doing their patients any good.

That's just the tip of the ice berg. Don't talk out your ass bro. This is coming from a white chick who runs an anti-SJW blog, btw.

"Brute force"? Hahaha. Arabs and Africans were fucking barbarians. The whole reason they could afford to be polygamist is because they would go and raid other town, taking the women as slaves and killing the men. We were much less violent then them in terms of culture, we just have better technology. Instead of running around, hacking people into pieces, we could just pull a trigger and the deed is done. You two are acting as if Europeans were the only ones with desires of conquest. Other races had similar goals, we were just the ones who won and won. Arabs had a shit ton of slaves throughout history, and they took a long ass time to cut it out.

I don't think you understand how population extinction works. It's not that we are overpopulated, but rather that niggers and muds are overpopulated. The population of apefreaka just keeps doubling and doubling. With each nigglet a sheboon shits out, each nigger becomes less and less significant. Niggers are like the pack mules of humanity. Nigger blood is cheap. Niggers can't figure out things like preserving food or resources. Lets see how they handle their population crisis. There are more whites in the world now then there ever have been in history, and we live a long time. Europe is overpopulated as well, and it's citizens are doing exactly as they should.

I feel the same. However it's sad, I never dare to discuss my hobbies with anybody, lolita friends or not, since I'm afraid of just coming across as pretentious or trying to be fancy. I actually genuinely enjoy opera, classical concerts and theater and I love going to museums. It's a bit sad to always go alone though since I never dare to ask anybody to go with me ;_;

Lifestyle lolita is something for an iddle richfag, since it's supposed to mimic the life of Victorian bored rich women.
So either be a spoonsilver with generous parents or the wife of a dotting rich husband.

It used to be all over the GLBs when I was just starting out, and really appealed to most western girls since real lolita clothing was so hard to get without actually flying over to Japan. Back then we had more girls who were "lolita at heart" than girls who actually wore the fashion. Now it's the opposite, with much of the online comm being casuals who wear lolita one day and some other tumblrcore fashion the next.
I honestly kind of miss the close-knit pretentious rori at heart community. It's probably more due to nostalgia than anything, but it really did feel like more of a community back then.

I came from gothic subculture where fashion is often associated with a lifestyle, so i tend to associate also lolita fashion with a lifestyle, depending also of your tastes because every lolita style can have differences in lifestyles, for example a gothic lolita will have a more gothic related lifestyle compared to someone who dress sweet who will have a preference for more cute and sweet things. But issue is i'm into cute and sweet things and also the spooky ones, infact i'm goth and dress in sweet lolita (black prints mostly) rather than gothic.

This. I actually enjoy antiquing(/thrifting), reading classic literature, knitting etc. and the fact that these interests compliment my style is just a bonus. I doubt anyone here is forcing themselves to drink tea just because it's so rori. I like the idea of a 'lolita lifestyle' community because it's a combination of all the things I like and an opportunity to discover even more enjoyable pastimes that match with my other interests and personality. Just look at all the music recommendations in this thread! It's even more fun knowing that these recommendations are coming from cute girls who like the same frilly dresses you do.

I don't think anyone should have to give up other hobbies just to fit in with the ~loli lifestyle~ (unless you really do suck dicks for fun because that ain't kawaii #tw: slut shaming).

People who force themselves into a lifestyle by doing/eating/wearing/living in a way that they don't enjoy probably have minor psychological issues, or are young and have no 'sense of self.'

Found a few whilst searching for something related. Here you go:
>In 'The Art of Beauty', Ovid suggests that young women suffering from breakouts do this:
>"Make haste and bake pale lupins and windy beans. Of these take six pounds each and grind the whole in the mill. Add thereto white lead and the scum of ruddy nitre and Illyrian iris, which must be kneaded by young and sturdy arms. And when they are duly bruised, an ounce should be the proper weight. If you add the glutinous matter wherewith the Halcyon cements its nest, you will have a certain cure for spots and pimples."
>So lead, scum from cave walls (aka nitre), and bird spit.

>Arsenic for bright skin and eyes. This one's been recycled a couple of times. Elizabethan women would put a mixture of arsenic, chalk, and vinegar on their faces to whiten their complexions, and in the Victorian era, arsenic eye drops were extremely popular for making eyes look large and bright. Of course, you couldn't see well after you used them, and they eventually caused blindness and poisoning.

>From the medieval period well into the 19th century, one of the most popular ways to attain perfectly pale skin was to use leeches. The blood loss would blanch women out for optimal whiteness. According to the 1834 Cyclopaedia of Practical Medicine, one could even keep things discreet with "frequent application of a few leeches to the anus."

I think its stupid to call yourself a lifestyle lolita. I don't consider myself a lifestyler, but many of the girls in my comm do because I love antiquing, knitting, sewing, playing piano, listening to classical and "kawaii" music, tea, and wear lolita on a daily basis.

Idk. Am I weird for thinking that? I don't consider myself a lifestyler because I've loved all that stuff before I ever knew that lolita existed. But of course I do have a few style inspirations who I'd consider a lifestyle lolita, though they don't call themselves that. For whatever reason, people who call themselves a lifestyler just put me off. Probably because the majority of them are noobs and weebs, itas and the socially inept. It's just ruined it for me.

Same for me. These are (warning, opinion ahead!) the guidelines I think are necessary to be a lifestyler:

>be a good lolita
learn the basics of what makes the fashion what it is, learn to coord well with all the bells and whistles like makeup and hair, outfits must actually be considered lolita, not just brand items or inspired by.
>do this regularly
self explanatory

When so many girls wear lolita about 4 times a year (and I still consider them lolitas), it kind of makes sense to have a word for the ones who just do it all the time. Be a lolita. All (or almost all) the time. Lifestyler.

I personally call the term you've describled a "daily lolita".

I can see that. I just always figured that, usually, at least to some extent, daily lolitas are inherently into other lolita-ish stuff anyway. Maybe from being constantly immersed into the aesthetic so it carries over into their home decor or other hobbies, or they just liked that stuff enough to begin with that wearing lolita regularly comes more easily to them. Though it would be funny to meet a daily lolita who is just a hardcore chain smoking, swearing ratchet chan who hates sewing, museums and tea, lol.

Let me tell you something, if all of the horrible, disgusting, things white people have done to everyone else on this earth for power didn’t make me hate them, their response to people of color talking about racism fucking would, especially this kind of response. It’s not about you, it was never about you, it was because of you. I only talk about “white people” when I’m talking about the systematic oppression they’ve inflicted on everybody else.

And then, considering the fact that “white” is a construct created by white supremacy to give their kin privilege, money, and power- saying “I hate white people” is so much more about the disgusting system that created it than the actual human beings with white privilege themselves

Bruh, Denmark and Sweden are like immigration ports to Europe. It's not about that. There's racism here too, both Denmark, Finland and Sweden have racist parties with Nazi background in their governments. There's just also a strong opposition movement especially in Sweden.

Also, the fact that the situation in large parts of Europe is so reminiscent to pre-WWII is just all the more reason to oppose racism because even if you think it's some social justice bs we still don't want a goddamn third world war. Astounding that people don't realize this is happening because it's not that long ago.
