I began wearing lolita 2 years ago, in June. My first time was quite good. Not the best outfit but I had read a lot about lolita and I knew I didn't look ita. I accompanied my friend to his graduation and everybody was quite nice, complimenting me and taking pictures.
The second time I've worn lolita was for a photoshoot with a photographer friend of mine. In the morning, I put my clothes on, dolled myself up, and then got out of her appartment. I had set only one foot outside her appartment and then... "OH MY GOD COME LOOK AT THIS!!!!!". It was her neighbor who was getting out of his appartment, telling his friends to come look at "this". I turned to him with an interrogative look and he said "Well... this is original". I wasn't sure if it was meant to be nice but I just laughed, said thanks and left.
Outside... oh boy. Outside. It appeared I was in the middle of a festival of some kind and there were people EVERY-FUCKING-WHERE. So I got stared at, a lot! But I didn't mind. There was a nice lady who said I was "SOOOOOOOOO CUUUUUUUUUTTTTTTTEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!" and asked for a picture (I said yes to that nice lady, obviously :3).
And then we got in an area where people can have a carriage ride! So there were horses everywhere, and I LOVE horses, so I went to take pictures with some of them :3 and then we meet this weird, old guy... he was around 60 years old and it appeared he was in charge of the carriage business. He walked off to me and stared at me. I smiled and said "Hi sir, how are you?". And then he answered "Wow, this is special... that costume". I said something among the lines of "Thank you, however this is not a costume, it is a Japanese fashion that kinda promotes modesty and is against hypersexualisation". I insisted that we must cover most of our skin and it is not sexy in any way.
And then. THEN. He looks at me with this blank stare, like his brain just shut off when I began my explanation, and he says :
"So, this is a fashion to make old perverts happy? Hehehehehehe"
DUDE, WTF, DID YOU EVEN LISTENED TO WHAT I JUST SAID??? DDDDDDDD:
Seriously, some people... :|
