Cosplay Lolita Gaara + Temari by CoFFeH Cosplay Lolita Gaara + Temari by CoFFeH
very creative and pretty :3

Taken at AX '08 by Trish (real name: Patricia [me])

Edit: Gaara is :iconxellacard: :3

Double Edit (1.3.10): I was not able to add in "Cosplay" to the title when I first uploaded this so I left it as "Lolita" in hope that the Lolita Community would understand since they know what is and isn't lolita. Please don't give me crap just for that, you should know better and ask if I knew instead of assuming I don't know. I'm sure there are a lot of people who don't know about the Lolita fashion but that doesn't give you the right to be bringing up Rapture on them. So for those who looked and are Lolitas and didn't comment because they would say something bad if they did, thanks. Least you guys are smart. Hope This edit helps others for a better understanding.

I was the gaara in the picture and it was my very first experience making my own lolita fashion. (though I have been involved in the lolita community for years) after years of admiring lolita fashion and edict I decided that I would finally branch out and give it a try.
THIS COSTUME WAS NOT MADE TO DISRESPECT LOLITA CULTURE OR STYLE ,but made out of respect and admiration. I KNOW I BROKE A LOT OF LOLITA "RULES" IN THIS COSTUME but I was trying to modify a costume that already existed and took some libertys.
when I was sewing it (which by the way took me months and hundreds of $$$ to make) I had the punk lolita style in mind which if you notice it dose follow the rules of.
I have been involved in the lolita community for years and have never had the displeasure of meeting some one as rude and catty as you two. everyone else at the convention was very nice and loved them. in fact we also got our pictures taken for a Japanese lolita fashion magazine. this was an attempt to merge my two loves, lolita fashion and cosplay. please don't take it so seriously. it was meant to be a joke costume

thank you so much for taking such a great picture I would have to say it is my favorite by far!

I think they tried their best really. They prolly made those outfits and it takes alot of time, fabric, and money oh and thought to make it work. I give them credit for that :3 What do they need research for? It's pretty cute in my opinion :3 I just wished I was able to take more pictures of them but there was a lot of people taking pictures of them.

You know...theres no reason for you to be mean...if you dont have anything nice to say or have the decency to tell me kindly that their fashion is not lolita then please tell me what kind of fashion it is. As to what I saw it looked lolita. I know what lolita is.

Look I did not make their outfits, so please do not bash about how "unlolita" they are. I post these photos up to hear about peoples opinion on my photo and their knowledge of a perfect shot or how creative a photo can be. So again please, if you dont have anything nice to say don't say anything at all.

Sorry to say, but no, it is NOT lolita. You know what kind of lolita it'd be classified as? Italoli. Literally meaning "painful to look at lolita". If you knew what lolita was, you'd know better.

I know that Lolitas are kind and only would nicely help others how to dress properly. Italoli sounds more like Italian Lolita. As I see, to me you find Lolita lyfestyle to be as "rules" of being lolita. "Lolita is a very hard style to define, but in my opinion what really defines it is it's childlike innocence and old-fashioned elegance. It's distinctive style is most obviously from the Victorian and Rococo eras, but you will see a lot of influence from the Edwardian period and even some 40s and 50s American clothing styles - any time period in which fashion was elegant and beautiful. The bell-shaped skirt provides the typical silhouette, but it is neither what makes something lolita nor is it required of all lolitas. There is no one item of clothing or a color or trim that embodies all that is lolita - it is a unique aesthetic that's hard to perfect. To some there's a lifestyle attached - not only wearing the clothes as often as possible but also taking part in lolita activities and following a certain code of etiquette - but to others it is merely a clothing style. Lolita can be an escape from the mundane, or an attempt to return to a more innocent time in life. It's something a little bit different to everyone, but what lolitas have in common is a shared desire to wear really awesome clothes." [link] and I do agree with that statement. If you are still not pleased with "Lolita" in my photos tittle then what can I call this, really?

Lolitas are nice and kind? Are you kidding me? And yeah bb, I have read lolita handbook. Have you stepped into EGL once and a while?
The lace on both of them look extremely cheap not to mention Temari's petticoat shouldn't be showing through. Gaara should be wearing a proper blouse, because arm fishnet is not loli.

Call it cosplay, what it really is.

Hey, Rain-of-innocence, do you really have nothing better to do than be a such a huge bitch to people? Not only are you proving to the world of how much of a dork you are, but you're doing so in a bitchy fashion.

I've been pretty amused seeing you get so serious about lolita, I bet you were typing that all sweaty and out of breath. Did you wake up in a cold sweat this morning thinking "I'VE GOT TO BE A BITCH TO SOMEONE!"

so fuck off and leave my friend alone. :iconnotimpressedplz:

Ok. I'm not some hardcore lolita person like you. theres no good reason for you to be saying something about their clothes as a rude comment to them. In Amarica, lolita is cosplay to us. Don't be such a Lolita Nazi. We don't really have Lolita activities and such or what so ever as Japan or other countries got. Why do you bother to tell me their clothes suck? really. If I thought something looks "Italoli" or whatever i would click something else and not bother. So you are rude. Please refrain from replying again. I've been trying to be kind about this, but it seems you do not understand. I maybe not understand your perspective of Lolita nor do I want to hear it from a rude person as you. I only care to hear about how my photo looks not what the person wears.
