Kawaii Street: Bittersweet Doll
A Bittersweet doll comes to play:
What I love about this outfit Is its simplicity. It’s a casual fusion of Kawaii and Goth. I don’t have too much to say about the creation of this outfit. Only because it really is so simple to recreate and it’s a cute outfit for an event. This outfit was featured at DC WEB FEST 7 for the Friday events. I decided to go for something simple and elegant to allow kawaii in spaces I knew wouldn’t usually have it. Plus my plus ones and I coordinated the week before. I have to say I really enjoy how I am using pins, and specifically the button pins/clips into my outfit. I kind of modeled today’s styling after clowns, and old marionettes. It might be the beginning of my expression into a living doll. I really admire the lifestyle, and aesthetic the only thing is I can’t do makeup for the life of me. My little attempts of doll-like qualities will have to be seen in other aspects of my outfits.
When it comes down to it, this look focused on taking gothic elements and fusing sweet motifs. I’m wearing a two-toned dress with a black see-through blouse to mimic the JSK styles in gothic lolita. I don’t have a petticoat, but I wear black tights from Target with my Black Dr. Martins Oxfords. What I love about my accessories besides all the donuts is that they mean something special to me. In many ways, the donuts are the most bittersweet aspect of my outfit because it pays homage to a little app called “pokemini” that I used to play religiously. The currency of the game was called donuts, and honestly, three years of investment both emotionally and financially will always have me remember my time there. I miss it, and it is truly bittersweet for me.
On to more features in this outfit, my favorite being my space girl pins from Otocyo. I LOVE science Fiction and its one of the genres I love writing in. To pay homage to my favorite genre, I wore the pin for some courage at DC Web Fest. Makeup wasn’t too dramatic just some dolly eyes and blush. That concludes my bittersweet style!
