The Secret Life of the Lolita

Ever since Deerstalkerpictures released their first video of their ‘The Secret Life of the Lolita’-series, I have been hooked! The videos are so colourful, the stories are funny (and sometimes pretty accurate) and the Lolitas featured in it all look stunning! If you haven’t seen their videos yet, please take a look! They are quite impressive. :3
In part one of the series, a Lolita is followed in a documentary sort of style. You see how she gets dressed, buys new clothes and stalks the mailman for her package to arrive. After she has finally received it, she rolls around on her bed in her brand. I fell in love with this part and the picture of the Lolita in question that came along with it. I immediately knew it: I wanted to take pictures like this too! So I asked my mom and she was totally up for it, which resulted into a Thursday afternoon of taking pictures. ^^
My idea was to put two mattresses on the floor, put down all of my pastel dresses (so not the black ones) and just lie on top of them in various poses. Our house is perfectly built to take pictures from above, so this came in quite in handy. I didn’t want the pictures to come out exactly the same way as the picture from Deerstalkerpictures (since it would be 1) impossible and 2) not as much fun, so I give it my own twist. We took many, many pictures and I chose my favourites for my blog. I really hope you like them. ♥

My dog Canela kept on jumping around us to see what we were doing.
It was just too cute! x)


Somehow these pictures remind me a bit of Snow White, I don’t really know why… ^^
Please leave a comment if you liked the pictures, it would make me super happy! ♥

  5. Your pictures came out so beautifully! Lolita dresses make such a wonderful backdrop for they're full with bright colors and frilly details. You look as if you are enchanted (like snow white or sleeping beauty) and laid to rest on a bed of leaves that as soon as they fall off the tree they transform into elegant dresses for you to wear when your prince comes to wake you up (I think I just got a cool story idea XD). My favorite pictures are the ones at the top and the 4th from the bottom. I would love to have this many dresses to take these kind of pictures with. Thanks so much for the eye candy (and the unintentional story inspiration)! These pictures are beautiful and you are beautiful too!

  8. This looks too cute!! I'd love to do this too, but sadly I think I do not own enough dresses for that! (7, but 2 of them are black/bittersweet so that would give a weird contrast I think ;_;)

    1. Thank you so much! <3 Hm yeah, it sounds like it would give some difficulty. I also didn't use my three black dresses, since it would be too hard to photograph. But you can totally do this together with a friend and combine dresses! =D

  9. Hi Rosalynn, I am Martina's friend. I love your blog, especially all the traveling & tea party ones. You are so lucky to have lots of events & friends nearby that share your passion for Lolita.
    All your outfits are so pretty, I'm very jealous of your wardrobe!
    I hope to go to Japan in the blossom season of 2016 & want to pick up some Angelic Pretty dresses & accessories while I'm there. Your posts have been very helpful for where to shop!
    Thank you for such a great blog! :-)
