CLOSE-UPS OF JAPANESE KODONA JEWELRY AND CUTE LOLITA ACCESSORIES: CUPCAKE RINGS, VIVIENNE WESTWOOD, BAT PURSES.


Sweet Lolita jewelry, rings. Cute Cupcake accessories, Tarina Tarantino bracelets. Angel wing rings, Vivienne Westwood crown pendant on necklace.

When it comes to Goth and Lolita outfits, the devil’s in the detail. So why do street snap sites limit poses to full-length and close-up-on-face? Not Style Arena, which zoom in close on fingers and feet. Sweet Lolitas are made of angel wing rings and cupcakes and Vivienne Westwood crowns…

Gothic Lolita jewelry, goth lace gloves and coffin ring. Alice in Wonderland white rabbit charm or pendant, blowing horn. Bat shaped purse, Goth Lolita shopping and clothes.

Gothic Lolitas are made of coffin rings over lace gloves, bat purses, and White Rabbit charms…

Skull hat, punk belts. Kodona pants with bow ruffles. Goth designer bracelet with skull heads, crystal eyes.

Kodonas (Victorian boy-style) are after my heart with layered belts, 3/4-length pants topped with bows, black rose and skull hats… and can I please have the skull bracelet with crystal eyes?

An appropriate Italo Disco song from the mid-1980s for you:

Song of the Day #31: JOY – Japanese Girls (1986)

    I watch style-arena's RSS feed. It really is an awesome and inspiring website! And you're right, Japanese street fashion is all in the details. I especially love the the Tenniel-inspired white rabbit charm and the crown-shaped pinky ring your kodona friend is wear in the last photo group. <3

    Oooh, good eye! It goes to show that although some Western Lolitas have reservations about Tarina's “Gothic Lolita” jewelry line, the Japanese have no such qualms.

    Thanks for the link!

      Ooo, beat me to it! If they weren’t so spendy, I would so have all of those cute stretchy bracelets! <3

        I’m impressed by how savvy you all are!

        The word “lucite” always makes me think of those transparent stripper high heels, haha.

    I'm pretty sure that's a Tarina Tarantino piece: Lucite skull bracelet

    A bit out of my price range (particularly for lucite!) although I did recently spring for a gothic-looking Q-pot necklace! XD

    I don't understand how to use Style Arena >< When I do a search for “lolita”, it doesn't show any results. How about a guide for dummies? x_x

    I think the site isn't as user-friendly as it could be… Here's a site map.

    http://www.style-arena.jp/en/sitemap.html

    The Tokyo New Tribe section has a number of Lolita photos. I don't find the Custom Search to be very helpful for finding goth/loli/punk images. The Harajuku sections are most likely to have Lolita snaps, but you'll have to dig through to find them.

    I think the site could make better use of tagging… Anyone else have suggestions?

    Ack, I have to ask. I don't suppose you know which brand makes the winged rings? And the White Rabbit charm?
