Bodyline Wishlist

In my last post about my goals for this year I mentioned how I wanted to get my first Lolita Outfit. I have been browsing sites ever since looking for that perfect first dress and my searches on Bodyline have come up with a huge list of things I would like! Unfortunately I can’t afford to get all of them just yet, hopefully I can be decisive enough to pick soon.Here is my Bodyline wishlist.

All pictures are used from the Bodyline site please click them if you wish to visit the page!

The Ice cream cones are so sweet and summery. And in case you were wondering, Yes that is Venus Angelic modelling for them. Her hair and make up are so adorable!

Image

This skirt makes me hungry just looking at it!

Image

A lovely girly skirt. Bodyline does have good blouses to go with all these skirts, they just aren’t included here for the sake of keeping this post a tolerable length.

Image

Teddy bears are so snuggly looking :3 and I bet this skirt would go with so many things.

Image

This skirts looks really high quality and has cute print. It has a slight sheen which usually looks cheap but I think it makes this skirt look more silky and glowing. Hopefully that’s still how it looks in person!

Image

This looks super soft, and pretty warm. Though I’m not sure when I’d ever need to just warm my shoulders ;P It think it would look great with the pink teddy bear skirt!

Image

These shoes look really dolly like and cute! I also read a review by a cute lolita blogger called Luna Rain saying she found them comfy,Β  (Click her name to have a peek at her blog)which is great because I’m such a wimp with umcomfortable shoes. I think my feet have skin like tissue paper or something >.<

Hopefully I will be updating you all with a review of a lovely outfit in a couple months! Damn indecisiveness >.<

How to look like a Living Doll

I love the living doll look. It’s very cute and princess-like. There are several girls who have gotten quite famous just from looking like a doll, some of them have gone as far as getting surgery to look more doll-like. However, you do not have to get surgery or have a “perfect” face or body to do the look yourself, there are little tips and tricks that you can do to have fun with the look without doing anything potentially dangerous all while making the most of the features you do have. It will take practice to perfect your technique and to learn what works best with your own face.

1) Circle Lenses

Image

Circle lenses make your eyes look much bigger, and therefore more doll-like. It’s probably the fastest and most exaggerated way to make your eyes look bigger (except perhaps editing your photos.) Be careful that you are getting genuine lenses from a reputable brand (such as Geo) and then be sure to follow their guidelines on caring for them and wearing them. If you don’t you could damage your eyes! Which is definitely not worth it.

2) Hair extensions

Image

Lots of the living dolls you do see have very long hair, it’s not necessary but lots of dolls do have longer hair (think Barbie, porcelain dolls etc.) Long hair is definitely not essential, but it will probably be easier to look doll-like with long hair rather than short. An easy way to get long hair is with clip in extensions, which cause less damage than more long term extensions. You can get some long extensions cheaply on eBay if you find the right seller.

3) Make-Up

Image

This is probably responsible for the majority of the look. The general idea is to make you eyes look bigger, the nose smaller, the cheeks rosier and to get pouty but not overly-exaggerated lips. You can get make-up tips from other fashions that use similar make-up but adapt it to look more dolly if you can’t find living doll tutorials. Eg. Try looking up Gyaru make up. False eyelashes are used often, including bottom lashes. Light colour eyeshadow is used to draw attention to the eye and make it look larger, including using a light eye pencil to extend the waterline slightly further down your face. Contouring is used on the nose and other parts of the face. Using pinky colours for blusher and lips is very common, red lips are still used but less so. Eyebrows are kept well-groomed.

4) Photo editing

Image

If you are ok with using this you can forget about make-up, circle lenses, everything. Just take a photo and edit it to the point you look like a doll. I personally don’t like this approach because it means you stop looking like yourself, and at some point it just starts looking scary. Plus you will still not look dolly in real life. If this is the approach you want, try looking into the photo editor XiuXiu Meitu. It’s free, easy to use and works well for getting a doll-like look.

5) Clothing

Image

There are no rules in outfits when getting a dolly look. It depends entirely on what type of doll you wish to look like. In general, try to look well-groomed and neat though. Even if you are wearing tracksuit bottoms and a top, if it looks neat you can still look like a doll. For a porcelain doll look, girly clothes are more popular. Such as florals, lace and bows.

6) The Body

Image

Most famous living dolls are quite skinny, and some have also had surgery to attain their body shapes. It isn’t necessary to have a “perfect” body to get the dolly look. Just make the most of what you have. Wear clothes that flatter your figure, and if you really want to make an impact try wearing a steel-boned corset under your clothing to give you a pulled-in hourglass waist like Barbie.
