notahyena said: You look great in lolita! As a larger person I was wondering what you do about making sure things will fit. Do you make your dresses yourself? Sorry if that's offensive! I am trying to see how I can get into the style.

beckpoppins:

oh no it’s not offensive at all, I’m happy to answer. Making sure things fit, no matter if it’s brand, custom, or offbrand is measuring measuring measuring. I am taller then most at 6 foot, with d-cups and 39 inch waist and its just a matter of measuring before you buy and then deciding if it fits you.

Many people are shocked to find out a lot of the big brands carry dresses that that can fit quite big girls! I only own two brand dresses at the moment but I have my eyes on plenty more! Nearly every brand will have their measurements printed in CM for the bust and waist if not more. I think it’s safe to subtract about 2 inches from those numbers to make sure you have no nasty shocks and surprises when it comes time to try it on.

This JSK is from BTSSB and as you can see here on it’s lolilibrary page it’s max measurements are at 43 inches, more then enough space for me in a sports bra. It’s a little short for me (well, everything is a little short for me) so i pair it with an underskirt which is completely common in lolita fashion.

My other JSK from the same brand is even bigger at a max bust of 47 inches! I could wear a push up if I wanted! It’s still on sale in pink if any lolitas are looking.

Here are some other brand bits on sale now:

btssb babydoll

meta eyelet skirt

IW noble OP

IW cutlery JSK

AP magical etoile JSK

Ok let’s get away from brand, you can find a lot of plus size clothes that can be lolitasized. One of my favorite outfits was made of bits and pieces of nonloli clothes.  I went with a sailor lolita theme and used a skirt that is a true full circle skirt so It would sit in the proper cupcake shape over petticoats. It was also a modest length and not to cartoony so it worked out perfectly  for lolita. I used a modestly cut sleeveless blouse and since sleeveless is a nono I just used a cute bolero it cover up. Even my hat was altered. I pinned a hairbow on a simple cap to make it cuter, as well as picking slightly visible bloomers to up the lolita factor. You can skip a lot of the brand hassle by going this route because there are plenty of clothes out their that can be adjusted.

lolita like things you can buy now:

modcloth sailor dress

modcloth blow blouse

modcloth black bow blouse

simply be rose colored blouse

pin up girl clothing unicorn skirt

pin up girl clothing fairytale skirt

and then there is custom work. This means making your own or having it made. I have made a lot of fancy stuff but no lolita dresses but I have bought custom work from gloomth as well as many etsy shops who are happy to make your dresses to measure! If you are working yourself though I would suggest using patterns made for dirndls, 18th century dresses, as well as alice style costumes to get the right shapes, as well as adding a lot of extra gather to the skirts!

Here are some pattern ideas:

dorothy dress as a jsk pattern

rococo dress as an op base, just shorten the skirt

dirndl as jsk pattern

another dirndl

a alice pattern that could go very ita but if used with care could be cute.

retro dress that could be made into a JSK

I hope this helps!

Final for my Time Arts class. Nothing gets you in touch with your own anger quite like listening to this and thinking about all the times you’ve been objectified and belittled.

Beautiful and perfect.

so my boyfriend and I tried roleplaying the other day and we did the whole “professor and bad student who needs to pass” thing, only he wanted to be the professor, so I had to be the horny and failing student. I’m the valedictorian of my senior class of 400 and I have a horrible phobia of flunking, so when he whispered “you’re failing my class, you naughty girl” in my ear, I started crying and we had to stop
