52 Weeks of Lolita

13 Nov
I have taken the best prompts from this blog and added a few new ones to create a year’s worth of lolita blog prompts. I call it…52 Weeks of Lolita!

I’m hoping that they will be put to more use in this format. Please feel free to copy and paste to tumblr, LJ, or elsewhere. You can tag your posts with something like #52weeksoflolita so that others can search for them easily. Have fun!
Optional intro: Give a brief bio including your name, general location, preferred sub style(s), amount of time you’ve spent in lolita, and a blurb about your expectations for this meme. (For the sake of simplicity, “lolita” and “lolita fashion” include aristocrat, ouji, and related styles throughout these prompts.)
