I’ve been wanting to draw a few things about Lolitas lately, as in the Japanese fashion trend, not the novel. It’s a fashion trend I adore, because it’s basically like small pockets of history, walking around, inspired by Rococo and Victorian fashion and design.
I wanted to draw two posters, one showing the different types of Lolitas, and the other showing the proper layering required to achieve the Lolita look. So far, i’ve only done the “type” one, but it’s a good start!
Technically, only 4 “types” are actual types, the others are more like themes. The main 4 types are classic, punk, gothic and sweet.
I never had the courage to dress up as a lolita myself, but I love looking at all the magazines…
I forgot this project happened for a bit there… I was going to upload them all properly, and I think I still will, once I figure out where I put the files.
Anyways, for my final project for my Photography class I recreated scenes from the first Harry Potter novel using pages from the book itself. I scoured some Goodwills to find some battered copies of the book, and using an X-Acto knife, a glue stick, and a very poor method of wet paper folding I made 15 scenes.
The ones here aren’t in any order. There’s Norbert, the Gringotts Vault, Quidditch, and the Sorting Hat here.
I also carved out a hardcover edition and used it as a box to keep the physical prints.
I really want to find those files now, so I can upload my favorite, the Mirror of Erised x3x
My absolute favorite thing about this project (and what I really hoped for when I first started out) is the chance to be personally introduced by extraordinarily talented artists that I probably wouldn’t have found otherwise.
From one of my new favorite illustrators, kiwiwikiwi. I believe this is also my first parcel from Poland!
