Submitted question:

I just bought JSK I of Merry Making in the Ghost Town in red, and am trying to put together a coord for (or really, accessories)  For now, I was thinking of either doing a bat or skeleton themed coord, to keep things simple for me, as I’m still fairly new to lolita and not the best at putting accessories together. Since this is my dream dress, I really want to have a nice looking coord with it. Here are my two ideas:

Bats:

Ring https://www.etsy.com/listing/200038490/black-glitter-bat-halloween-ring?ref=favs_view_18

Purse https://www.etsy.com/listing/201605325/bat-hand-bag?ref=favs_view_4

Hair accessory https://www.etsy.com/listing/199121842/silverwing-circlet-antique-silver-bat?ref=favs_view_11

Tights https://www.etsy.com/listing/62642232/smallmedium-brand-new-color-dark-grey?ref=shop_home_active_6

 

Skeleton:

Ring https://www.etsy.com/listing/165413856/halloween-ring-cemetery-plot-with?ref=favs_view_17

Tights https://www.etsy.com/listing/202120043/halloween-unique-costume-skull-skeletons?ref=favs_view_15

Of course if neither of these look nice I’m open to other suggestions instead. :)

Thank you!!!

Response from Lolita Tips:

As far as accessories go I really like the bat one. The only thing I would do different (and it isn’t really a change, it’s just adding on) would be to add a full hair accessory that the circlet can be an addition to like a bonnet, half bonnet, floral corsage, veil, something to make it look more Lolita than the circlet alone looks.
The thing I’m not loving about the skeleton one is the tights. I think skeleton tights are fine in some cases, but I feel that in this particular case it would look quite costumey. I do adore the bat tights though.

Challenge~? Challenge~! Gothic lolita coord in sax! Is it possible?

So I was having trouble doing a coord in all sax that was convincing for Gothic Lolita, it always turned out too Classic/Sweet with some dashes of goth thrown in. So I went ahead and added some black in there but used sax as the focus and this is what I got.
I’m going to start with this dress in sax because it’s super elegant and they even give you a picture of it with a black shawl that shows you it will work nicely with black. Then I’ll wear it with this shawl in black, these tights, and this hat in sax. To give the hat a slightly more Gothic touch I’ll add a brooch to it somewhere that mimics the look of the dripping jewels and I would replace the white roses with black ones and possibly add a black veil or some black lace into where the veil in the hat already is. Then I’ll do black lace gloves, a blue ring, and a blue brooch on top of the shawl. Then I’ll go with these boots in sax and add some shoe clips to tie them in a little more.

what are some nice accessories that could go with haenuli's stained glass jsk? specifically, tights/legwear, jewelry, and bags.

I would go for something with a simple elegance overall. Black legwear (maybe black tights with a lace pattern to draw off the beautiful lace on the hem of the dress and architectural design of the print), black socks, a black bag. Then I would really bring out the colors of the print with jewelry in colors to match the stained glass. Necrosarium's Vampire Requiem jewelry in either red or blue would be gorgeous for a more Gothic feel that really takes the religious motifs of the stained glass into account. Or you could do more with jewels and actual stained glass with jewelry like this, this, and this for example.
