Anonymous said: Hi, will you help me please? I've recently moved back home where I have no lolita friends and the local lolitas are really mean. I was really happy where I used to live because there was a big and friendly comm and I would regularly attend meets. I'm sad here and want to basically give up lolita because I have no reason to wear it. (plus it's humid year round here). I might want to sell my closet except for a few casual and dream dresses. Lolita makes me happy though. ;-; </3
If Lolita fashion makes you happy, wouldn’t that be your reason to wear it? ; A; You don’t need to have a physical reason to wear Lolita. If it emotionally makes you happy to wear these clothes, then it is your reason to keep doing what you like; the way you dress isn’t for the purpose of other things. If it’s pretty humid where you are from all the time, I suggest just go without a blouse or go for less petticoats. It’s humid, don’t torture yourself sweating through layers of clothing. Wear what makes you feel comfortable! You could also wear a short sleeve bolero if you don’t feel right going without out a blouse, or you try short sleeve chiffon/light cotton blouses. I also suggest one pieces and skirts since for skirts you can pair it with short sleeve blouses or cut sews, and for once pieces you can keep it simple with a petticoat or two so you wouldn’t melt.
I’m also sorry that you don’t feel happy about your local lolitas, do you think you could maybe talk to the moderators that you aren’t feeling comfortable or as welcome to the group? Another place you could turn to is social media. I don’t have a local community from where I’m from, the closest one is 1 hour+ away from me. I made some friends through here and through their mutual friends where we would meet together at cons/bigger events. Even though we might not be able to see each other as often, it’s nice to meet new friends from different places and keep in touch with them too if you aren’t able to visit your local comm that often.
I’m not sure if I’m the best at these things, but if you have anything else I try my hardest to help you out. I hope things work out for you!
