Welcome to the EGL & punk section

 1. Explaining lolita


1.1 The basics

EGL stands for Elegant Gothic Lolita. It's a fashion subculture that started in Japan with influences of Victorian and Rococco clothing styles.

While the name of the fashion has nothing to do with the book by Nabokov and isn't spelled with a capital L, it's speculated that it may be the reason why the fashion is called lolita.

It's like the Bratz girls embracing that they're called brats, punkers embracing that they're called punks. Both of them gave it another different meaning.

1.2 The price

Before you go any further, I've got to explain why lolita pieces are priced this way. Pieces are carefully constructed and not produced in huge quantities. A lot of fabric is used (especially good quality fabric for bigger brands) and those are not cheap as well.

This is why it can also take months for your piece to arrive if you're not buying it second hand, or why you might see limited reservation periods.

Because usually, pieces are also made to order. They are also built to last for decades and to be worn multiple times. Also, you can't forget that even the biggest lolita brands are still considered as extremely small ones when comparing it to the brands we regularly see like H&M, Zara, Bershka and many more.

1.3 The search

Since pieces are made to last for decades, are made in limited quantities and expensive, it can take a very long time till you've found you dreamdress or a dress on your wishlist. This is why most lolitas usually dedicate a rather big amount of the time to searching on second hand sites!


 1. Explaining "my" punk

The second style you'll find in my closet is a kind of punk.

I think it is punk? Visual kei & anime art have influenced the punk I wear a lot, which is why you'll usually see me wearing Japanese punk brands as my "main piece".

Currently (2020-2021), e-girls are getting "merged" with the new wave of mall goths too. The people wearing this style also seem to incorporate clothing items of Japanese punk brands! So yeah...

Am not sure how I should describe it, but hopefully my wardrobe & wishlist can give you an image of the punk I wear!


 3. My introduction

I discovered EGL and Japanese Punk around 2010-2011 when I discovered anime!

During those times, it was extremely hard for me to find something that my parents would allow me to buy that was also available in our small country.

But now, after 10 long years and finding new dear friends that reignited my love for the fashion and confidence, I'm able to wear those pretty dresses & studded pants ♥


 4. Personal style

The styles/themes I like to wear are

  • maid
  • old school
  • gothic
  • proto (see cyn)
  • punk
  • nurse

and the colourways I like to wear are

  • black & white
  • black & black
  • wine/bordeaux/deep red & white
  • purple

 5. Where I buy my pieces

Right now, there are 2 marketplaces, 2 shops and 1 service that I've used to get my pieces. These are


Lacemarket


Vinted


WunderWelt


Baby, the Stars Shine Bright | Alice and the Pirates
