Many girls, especially those who have just started in Lolita fashion may often confuse “Cosplay Lolita” with Lolita.The one who recognizes Lolita as cosplay may don’t know Lolita can be worn as a proper costume too.On the other hand,those who put Lolita dresses on as proper costumes may not think “Cosplay Lolita” as Lolita.However I think both of them are Lolita,just two differernt sub-styles of Lolita.
Cosplay Lolita is worn by those who wish to dress in Lolita as more of a costume, usually only at anime or game conventions. This type of Lolita outfit is normally crudely put together. A dress in this style is usually created from a sort of satin, adorned with oodles of scratchy lace, and is not very fitting to the Lolita fashion as a whole. A majority of dresses in this style are either too short and show far too much skin for any proper Lolita or are very reminiscent of a maid or nurse. This could be due to the fact that some associate Lolita with maid or nurse characters in anime.
A proper Lolita outfit represents elegance and modesty. Think of a porcelain doll. The Lolita style is just as delicate. A quality Lolita dress is normally created from a nice cotton fabric with cotton lace, and the Lolita fashion is mainly representative of the Victorian and Rococo eras in elegance and beauty.
There are key differences between the two.But both of them are Lolita.You can choose a Cosplay Lolita dress when you go to a cosplay show,and wear a proper Lolita dress in your daily life.By the way,if you want to buy some Lolita Dresses,there are also many styles for you to choose,such as Sweet Lolita,Gothic Dresses and so on.And it’s better for you to buy them online,because Lolita Dresses online are cheaper than the local shops with good quality.
