Lolita blog carnival: Create your own lolita substyle

Vampire lolita

Vampire lolita is substyle that takes much from gothic lolita, adds a generous dose of romantic goth aesthetic and mixes with classic horror movie glamour.  Wearer wouldn't stand out at the set of Dracula or Interview with the Vampire.

This style uses lot of jewel colours like ruby, emerald and sapphire but also black, wine and navy. The fabrics are luxurious velvets, shining brocades and floaty chiffons. 
Chiffon or lace blouses give just the right romantic addition to this opulent look and add a touch of vampiric sensuality to one's outfit.A slightly more decollete is recommended but not necessary.

When it comes to aaccessoriessomething with a slight macabre touch is really the best option. Vampire bite necklaces, black lace gloves and large veiled hats go with Vampire lolita perfectly. And of course no vampire is completely ready without a proper parasol to ward of that fiendish sunlight.
Shoes should be extremely elegant, somewhat Victorian and preferably heeled. Ankle boots, dainty pumps and full goth boots will definitely work.

As for make up dark lips and pale skin are recommended and dark eye make up encouraged. Inspiration can be taken from such femmes fatales as Morticia Addams, Theda Bara and any of the ladies of Tim Burton. (Well... Maybe not the Red queen...)

One can't really list good brands to buy items for this look but Moi-même-moitié will have nice blouses, most classic brands carry appropirate dresses along with Atelier Pierrot and Lumiebre has good options for the parasol lover.  Accessories can be easily found from the collections of Alchemy Gothic, vintage stores and Etsy.
