I just had a Brainwave

Elegant Goth Lolita from Kamikaze GirlsFor so long, I’ve longed to (comically? ironically?) wear a piece of [[Elegant Gothic Lolita]] fashion. Just now, I was looking through the catalogue for Baby, the Stars Shine Bright and I happened across their Knit section. And then I had a Brainwave: why not knit myself something?

I don’t think I have the design understanding yet to come up with something so intricate, but I may be able to figure out something small. The larger items I am leaving up to the rest of the knit blogging world. To whomever designs an Elegant Gothic Lolita-styled garment to knit: I will post a link to you every single day for the next 3+ years, because I will spend at least three years knitting your pattern over and over and over until I have it in every colour of the rainbow. I will wear my Elegant Gothic Lolita knits until they are in tatters, and then I will knit new ones again.

This is no idle promise. You underestimate how much I love how crazy Japan is.

  1. [...] I’m seriously considering the Knit The Classics KAL. They’re reading Lolita right now, and since I’ve been wanting to read it for a long time (that and “Invitation to a Beheading“), I figure knitting it as well would be a really neat idea. Perhaps I can try my hand at doing something vaguely Elegant Goth Lolita, as I previously mentioned in my post about how crazy Japan is. Did Lolita dress like that? I always picture her dressing like that. [...]

  2. [...] Or they dress like Victorian dolls, which I am never one to turn down. There’s a store at the Pacific Mall that sells Elegant Goth Lolita clothing! I nearly died. [...]

  3. I bet you could find a pattern for something on knitty and mod it, changing the colors or some such. . . maybe adding some knit lace? :???:
