15 years Lolita anniversary

May 04, 2019

Hello lovelies,

at the bring and buy last weekend I realized I have been a lolita for 15 years, for me this means that I have been wearing lolita fashion for half of my life. This is so crazy!

I found animexx, a German anime and manga site back in 2004 because I loved reading manga and watching anime, duh. I registered and immediately found out that I am not the only one in Vienna who loved them.
I was introduced to Lolita from watching various Visual Kei bands, especially the band Lareine. In 2004 I started wearing my first lolita outfit, which was actually the first Communion dress of my sister, at a Visual Kei meet-up and I guess it just went downhill from then on. Just kidding :D.

My style changed a lot since 2004. It started out very sweet, went on to very casual and I think I am on the classic level now, with some OTT influences.

To celebrate this joyous 15 anniversary year I made a lolita through the years collage. Which year do you like best? Or find most ridiculous?

lolita fashion, coordinate, lolita anniversary,

I couldn't find any pictures from 2011, I was concentrating more on cosplay that year.
Looking back, I had so many weird coordinations but they all helped me grow and move on. I am pretty confident with my style, in and out of lolita and those 15 years also helped me shake off a bit of my introvertness and even enjoy talking to my fellow lolitas. It took me about 10 years to really feel good in the Austrian Lolita community, better late than never.

What is your lolita over the years story?

All the best,

Auris Lothol

  1. Fifteen years, wow, that's incredible! And I like how your style has evolved. Especially knowing that 2010 was the OTT Sweet craze, to see that you actually went more casual around that time is quite refreshing. :)

    1. Thank you, it has been a super wild ride.
      I remember how put off I was with the OTT in 2010 and wanted to do a coord that was simple yet cute.
