Would you consider the Classical Puppets Spring Garden Victorian OP to be a lolita dress? I'm looking for one special dress for meet-ups and the like and I'm in love with it but I'm not sure if it's acceptable

It’s meant to be more just Victorian than Lolita, but if you wear it with the right petticoat and coord it could work for Lolita.

Submitted question #850: Does Bodyline or Infanta do replicas?

Submitted question:

I am asking because I am confused because I was splurging on bodyline and infanta on qutieland and I noticed Infanta’s strawberry sundae OP(http://www.qutieland.com/product.php?id=1417) and Bodyline’s L515 have the same print. I just made me wonder if Bodyline replicates Infanta or vice versa? Thank you.

Resonse from Lolita Tips:

Neither of them are replicas. The fabric is available to the public. The same case goes for Bodyline L513 and Classical Puppets Rose Bouquet.”

Hi! I was wondering if you could help me figure out some last things about a coord I’ve been putting together and if you can just give me your opinion on it overall. It’s my first coord so I’m not entirely sure what fits together and whatnot-

So far it consists of this OP in red, these tights, and these shoes in black. I don’t know why I didn’t buy the matching headbow right when I bought the dress(I thought I could use something else I guess??), so now I’m kind of stumped as to put on my head, since I don’t really want to interrupt my current order and pay separate shipping for the bow alone. I kind of feel like what I have so far uses too much black, so I was thinking of maybe using a red rose clip, but I also feel like adding the sudden red element would through the rest of the black pieces I’m using off balance. Thanks a lot for your help! 

Response from Lolita Tips:

What you have so far looks great. I wouldn’t worry too much about using too much black because the red, being naturally brighter, stand out a bit more than the red does so I would say the coord looks fairly balanced. That being said it wouldn’t be difficult at all to use both red and black for your headwear. When I saw the coord I first thought of this hat as your headwear. It’s black and red and has pearls that also fit with the dress and the veil adds a softness that I think helps tone down the starkness of the stripes. It’s currently sold out but the shop it’s from takes custom requests so you could ask that another be made. Of course it doesn’t have to be that exact hat but it’s a good example of what you could use. Then you could maybe add a few more accessories. Black lace gloves or wrist cuffs with a red ring and maybe a red and black necklace or choker to fill in that sort of empty space at the neckline, perhaps something like this.

Hi, I just wanted to second your answer about the Classical Puppets bloomers. I love mine, they're well constructed, comfortable, and cute, but the elastic is not forgiving, so definitely go custom sized.

Good to know! Thanks for your input.

Hello! Do you know anything about the fit of Classical Puppets bloomers? It is stated that their waistbands stretch to 100 cm maximum. I was wondering if they would (comfortably) be able to accommodate hips that are about 110 cm, or if I would have to get custom sizing? I've never bought bloomers before, & I'm unsure if there is more room in the hip/rump area than in the waistband, or if they are both 100 cm max. Thank you for your time. Love your blog. <3

I would go ahead and get them custom. I know that with their petticoats they can usually stretch a little farther than the max they give but I imagine bloomers would be different because they’re more enclosed around the legs and butt. It’s a little less convenient to get them custom sized but it’s worth it to be more comfortable.

Would the super fluffy bell shaped petticoat you suggested in the FAQ fit under most skirts? It looks really nice and the price seems great, but I'm ordering a jsk from bodyline to go over it, and I'm wondering whether it could be /too/ full.

I have never had a problem with it not fitting under anything. It’s super fluffy but not obnoxiously fluffy.

I've noticed you've been getting a lot of questions about this lately; I ordered two CP petticoats through qutieland in early November and it only just now says they've been shipped out. Just be patient! :)

Thanks!

To the Classical Puppet's anon: My petticoat was in processing for what felt like forever (it was nearly three months), and then it arrived within two weeks of after that. I wouldn't be too worried, the make time is somewhere around 45-50 days and that does exclude weekends, so it takes some time, and it will take a while for that status to change. Hope that helps!

Thanks!

i hear about CP bell shaped pettis being really good, should I expect that their a-line pettis are just as good?

I used to have their super fluffy A-line as well and it was great. I eventually sold it because I sold the only dress I ever used it for but I got it second hand and it was great and the friend I sold it to loved it as well. It was reeeealy fluffy though, even fluffier than my bell-shaped one so for most use the regular A-line would probably be more reasonable than the super fluffy A-line like I said in the FAQ.

Hello Lady of the Lace! What type of Petticoat should Classical Puppet Alice in Wonderland OP From 'QutieLand' and Classical Puppet Royal Carousel OP have? I can't really tell.

Bell-shaped for both.
