  • Hello
  • Friends and welcome to another video.
  • This week, I'm gonna be getting a Japanese Lolita makeover in Tokyo. That's right.
  • You might just see me in some pink. So last year on our Japan trip
  • I got a Tokyo makeover where we explored some of the current street fashion trends seen in the Harajuku neighborhood
  • which is pretty much the fashion epicenter of the city,
  • with many clothing boutiques, high-end department stores,
  • and street photographers ready to snap shots of any fashionable people walking by.
  • Including this guy, who's rocking it.
  • Now, the Harajuku area is also strongly associated with
  • some of the most well-known and frequently talked about
  • Japanese fashion subcultures, including Lolita.
  • which, to put it shortly, is a very poufy and frilly style inspired by
  • vintage fashions from Victorian England and Rococo France
  • and though it is very different from what I usually wear-
  • insert reference photo of a bat here-
  • I am very interested in trying it out,
  • because besides being a very striking style,
  • it has also become an increasingly worldwide phenomenon,
  • with lolita tea parties and harajuku fashion walks held all around the globe.
  • So this year while we're in Japan,
  • we're gonna be doing a full-on deep dive into Lolita style and its community and to do so
  • we're gonna be joined by our friend and guide of rinrin doll
  • Who is a tokyo-based youtuber as was a working lolita, model and enthusiast. And together?
  • We will hopefully be able to come up with a head-to-toe lolita look.
  • Alright, so let's go and get Lolita-fied.
  • So our first step once we got to Japan was to meet up with rinrin who arrived at our hotel in the full
  • Lolita regalia. Hello everyone. My name is rinrin and I've been doing Lolita modelling for about 10 years now
  • Thank you so much for coming rinrin to our hotel room
  • Thanks for inviting me
  • Oh
  • I made it weird. I made it weird. Sorry and before going shopping for our outfit
  • I wanted to figure out more of what
  • Lolita is all about. Now, Lolita fashion as we know it today has been around since the 90s inspired by a variety of
  • earlier Japanese fashion trends and visual k-rock bands and also notably bears no relationship to the
  • 1950s novel of the same name. As we mentioned before, Lolita draws heavily from
  • Victorian and Rococo aesthetics with the style goal being to blend feminine
  • Sophisticated almost aristocratic looks with whimsical
  • Fantasy elements and a dash of cute. So there's a lot of lace
  • corsets ruffles and too over-the-top
  • accessories with a couple of notable style inspirations being Marie Antoinette and Alice from Alice in Wonderland and
  • Rinrin, one of the biggest defining qualities of the Lolita. Look is the overall shape
  • Basically this sort of cupcake silhouette a lot of fluff on the bottom
  • So petticoats and crinoline are pretty essential
  • cupcake silhouette keep that in mind but contrary to what my first impression of Lolita was pastel colors are actually
  • Not that essential as there are many subgenres of Lolita fashion. That includes some of the same
  • Characteristics but have very different moods
  • So you couldn't go from anything from goth to Punk to the sweet style
  • Which is what I'm wearing or a pop style. There's so many styles
  • So while I was kind of expecting I would end up with something like what rinrin was wearing
  • It turns out that there are a lot of other options so I could wear an all-black outfit and still be in Lolita
  • Yes, that's intriguing now
  • one of the most common questions that people ask about Lolita is why do
  • People dress like this and a lot of Lolita seem to say the same thing and it's quite a simple answer
  • It makes them happy. It's fun for them
  • And they like to express themselves with their fashion rinrin said that when she put on her first Lolita outfit and looked in the mirror
  • I just got this clipped. This is how I would like to see myself
  • It's very nice to love what you're wearing
  • And how you're feeling at the same time and they often mention that part of the appeal is that they're not dressing for other people's
  • Approval it's definitely your clothes for yourself. I don't think it's very like
  • sexy
  • It's not to catch a mate. I
  • Like that. Mm-hmm, you're just having fun wearing what you want to wear. Yeah
  • Now that sounded pretty familiar to me yeah, your Lolita is Tyler's gym shorts
  • Ah, he did not wear them to attract a mate. Oh, you found one despite it
  • Obviously, there's more time and effort that goes into a full Lolita outfit
  • Then Tyler's 20 year old a pair of gym shorts, but I think the idea of dressing in something that makes you feel good
  • Definitely resonates with me reinsert photo of bat here
  • so with those guidelines sort of stylistically and
  • Emotionally set it was about time for us to start building our outfit and our quest started in
  • Harajuku at the La Fleur a department store whose lowest floor be 1.5 is almost entirely dedicated to
  • Subculture brands. You can't go wrong on that floor
  • So I'd like to take you around there and I've selected a couple shops that have a wide variety
  • So now you can try out different styles. Awesome. We had actually arranged to go to LA for a before it opened
  • So we arrived around 8 a.m
  • in the pouring rain
  • Ready to get our shop on our plan was to visit three stores and try on two options at each one and first up was
  • A via Tosh. Okay. So we are here at abia Tosh with na ho who is one of the shop staff?
  • So this shop focuses on corsets?
  • And they would like people to be closer to it and wear it in their everyday fashion
  • Naho also mentioned that in addition to selling corsets. They also specialize in antique style clothing and accessories
  • So what kind of stuff we're gonna be trying on right now?
  • So she says she'd like you to try on a sort of gothic looking style and then a little bit more
  • Light-colored style and the Gothic look was up first
  • And two beside some roughly black items
  • We also needed a corset of course, and once we had selected that it was time to try it all on
  • Would you need help? Um, I'll call okay, if I need it. I'll just you'll hear me yelping. All right, groaning, perhaps
  • Alright, let's do it
  • Unfortunately, we weren't able to do a dramatic curtain reveal of our outfit because I needed some serious hands-on assistance to get
  • Strapped in suck it in do your worst and from the impression I got from my rib cage
  • Oh, yeah, I would say not likes her laces typed. How is it are you? Okay, kiddo?
  • Great, but once I was in I did think the corset tied the whole look together
  • All right. So this is like look number one. I very much enjoy it. I am very tucked in. Yes, I am
  • Cinched now who is not messing around. We're just were in it
  • I also do like this kind of like rump look we've got going on here. It's sort of oh, excuse me
  • It's sort of um rokoko why don't--you're is a bootylicious. Oh, no, it's kind of like poofy licious
  • Yeah, it's not not delicious right in addition to the pouf to boot
  • We also added a bonus choker corset as well as a slightly askew mini flowered hat. Oh wow
  • I sort of feel like a fashionable one. Who's the lady from Sweeney Todd? Mrs. Lovett. I kind of feel like a fashionable mrs
  • Lovett like I could be in cahoots with a murderous barber definitely to round out the look. We added a few pieces of jewelry
  • Including this finger thingy. That is something that like a Marvel villain would wear. Yes. It's kind of like the Infinity single ring
  • It's like the infinity index finger as well as this almost very like ear cuff
  • I'm getting kind of a Lord of the Rings vibe. You just went a little our way
  • Yeah, I think with that they were finally pleased with the amount of things. I was wearing very thick you like it all
  • Sticky and I was also generally pleased I mean I definitely feel a little short of breath, but I also feel good in it
  • So it's hard to say so that was option number one now for our second outfit now help put me in a lighter
  • Corseted look to give us our first taste of some pastel
  • Alright, so this is option number two from a via Tosh now. This isn't necessarily a traditional
  • Lolita silhouette, but it does have some Victorian vibes
  • Especially with the sort of night to gown need duster coat that I could grab and be
  • Outraged with like I almost feel like I need like a Shea's lounge to like faint upon like scandalized
  • How dare you excuse you? So I would say that it was more of a Victorian pajama look one thing
  • I will say is that my cleavage is definitely making an appearance magical appearance
  • I think now ho has created it with her masterful corset skills. Yes
  • She said you you have it already. Oh thanks, it was just hiding somewhere much further down now
  • Most Lolita looks actually have quite high necklines and don't really feature cleavage
  • However, since I usually don't have much I wasn't mad but though I enjoyed this outfit
  • I am a big fan of of like an outer layer. I think that this was more of an alternative
  • Lolita look
  • So I wasn't sure that this was the one for us and though we still had the first outfit as one of our possibilities
  • It was time to continue on to store number two, okay?
  • So now we are here at Atelier Pierrot
  • Which is actually just like a few sort of steps down from where we just were and we are here with my who is one
  • of the shop staff today know Atelier Pierrot is a select shop that carries gothic and lolita items and when people mention
  • Alice in Wonderland as a style icon
  • I think you really get a sense of that here with like serious cupcake and Mad Hatter vibes. So let's get started
  • Hey, where should we begin? Yeah key guy in my show
  • You know, I thought the I she was my pretty much immediately grabbed the dress
  • She wanted off the opposite rack, which was a long layered dusty lavender gown
  • So it's a little bit summery because if the sleeves are shorter
  • Also feels a sort of breathable material. I like that. So at this one first, okay, perfect
  • So I was quickly whisked away to the dressing room with my stockings following close behind
  • We have tights for you. Oh great. Thank you. Now one thing to note. Is that although I usually do
  • Okay, getting into Japanese sized clothes my feet are a different story
  • so I brought a few of my own shoe options from home and during Rin and my
  • Unanimously chose the six inch platform ones, which is fine, but they do also make me a giant. So just everyone be prepared
  • All right, I can walk I'm good. I'm good
  • Super cute. Yeah, though at least I was a supposedly cute giant. I like this a lot. Actually, it's quite comfortable
  • I like this sort of like easy almost like baby doll silhouette like the stockings a lot - the stockings are super cool
  • They're kind of like Haunted Mansion II next up rinrin outfitted me with some wrist cuffs now, we're matching
  • Why do these make me feel like a cat
  • I guess feel like I've paused now and then I squatted down so they could add a Lacey necklace. This is a thigh workout
  • Oh, yeah and a mask for your head over my head
  • It's just you know, I'm just leaving the masquerade. So it's just sort of askew. I thought this outfit was really cool
  • And I did feel kind of like an elegant
  • basketball player sized porcelain doll come to life
  • which I think is part of how you're supposed to feel with Lolita like a little vintage and a little
  • Fantastical but my and rinrin had further plans for me and quickly handed me their pick for our second option
  • All right, here we go. Once more into the breech which was made up of a black blouse and a blue pinafore over dress
  • Oh, this is cool. I love this one. I feel kind of like a pirate
  • Yeah, like a sort of like Gothic Lolita pirate. Okay. I feel like I could get into that
  • I guess this is more of an Elizabeth Swann than an Alice in Wonderland, but there were definitely some fantasy elements at play our
  • Our oh and you'd like that single index finger ring from Abbey. Atach. I'd be like our
  • Yeah, exactly. Very good. It's all coming together
  • but before I could start plundering my and rinrin moved in with the accessories you got any
  • Booty for me and Aleut any puffed snacks Riven gooey. Goo Sofia an eyepatch. I
  • Thought tonight
  • Is she getting an iPad yeah, I
  • Still can't believe they had an actual eye patch to try on. It's a lolita eyepatch. Oh my god, it's happening
  • But after the elven ears and infinity index fingers, I guess I shouldn't have been all that surprised. Is this a look?
  • Yeah, yeah, is it is it a good look as if you look unfortunately for me
  • I don't think it was the look. Is it gone super? Kawaii to like that? Kawaii?
  • I
  • Preferred no eyepatch. Yeah, I think that's why to call but - the eyepatch though, I really did like this
  • Look, I think this really suits you. Hmm. I like the color on it. Do you guys like this better than the purple dress?
  • I do. So I think that this outfit might have been moving into the front-runner position for us
  • But we still did have one final store left to visit, okay
  • Yeah
  • So we are here at angelic pretty with aya and lime who are two of the shop staff are gonna be helping us out today
  • now
  • angelic pretty is the brand that
  • Rinrin has been working with for a long time and they're well known for these sweet Lolita outfits that they sell and two
  • iya lime and rinrin the store's motto is for the little boys and girls inside of us who dream of being
  • Princesses which I think is a pretty different vibe for me when I was a little girl
  • I wanted to be snow-white who's got the blue and the yellow but now I'm more of a boy I said it
  • Great. Well the store looks awesome. It's very pink. But I'm I'm willing I'm open and ready and willing. So let's do it
  • So we started searching for a couple of sweet Lolita options sort of literally
  • I love the food on this one popcorn cherry soda, and marshmallows I could get down with that
  • All right, so why don't we try on this one?
  • Then this guy is wearing a similar one - oh, yeah, you have the same one on popcorn
  • Marshmallow strawberry milk, it's making
  • So they gave me a blouse to put under my pinafore and Descent me to the dressing room farewell
  • But this giant curtain tie and I gotta say it was kind of poetic
  • I went into a giant curtain of pink and I came out as a giant curtain of pink
  • Wow, this is me as always of course rinrin had many accessories for me including some that were food themed
  • As well as surprisingly some shoes it fits my foot is it it's a Christmas miracle
  • Yeah, and we finished off the outfit with a hair ribbon and a purse. How do you feel I feel a little warm but
  • Overall, I feel like I'm in the right zone. Like I feel like I've got the right elements going
  • I've got the blouse. I've got the pinafore. I've got something in my hair the bag cool socks
  • So I feel like I'm like suited up and I once again love my little wrist cuffs
  • In fact, I was very impressed by the wide variety of wrist cuffs that angelic pretty had to offer. Oh
  • Those are awesome pretty awesome. Yeah. Oh don't look at my naked nails
  • I wonder what better nails a nine so with one sweet lolita look test driven
  • We had just enough time to try one more outfit as at that point la foret was starting to open
  • Wow, I like this one you are poufy I like this one a lot. I'm very goofy. Yes. We added two petticoats
  • Don't petty right now. I'm double payment Wow hanky
  • ' now I quite liked the elegant fish pattern on this dress also rinrin and I I think have matching blouses
  • Yes, they did. I mean
  • I then got basically NASCAR pit stopped into my accessories double-fisting
  • Mystic double wristing that sounds better. Yes, which finished off our final outfit option?
  • I was very impressed by just how poofy I was I feel like a
  • Bell and I think that really brought together the classic Lolita
  • Cupcake aesthetic that we had heard so much about I actually like this one on you a lot. Me too
  • I think I actually prefer it to the food one. Even though I am still wanting food
  • But now that we had tried it it was time to evaluate
  • All of our possible options and decide on what we wanted to wear. So let's do that. So
  • We had tried on a lot of different outfits
  • But in the spirit of what we had mentioned before about finding something that I would like to wear that I believe
  • Expresses me through it while still being Lolita we settled on our Gothic pirates look from Atelier Pierrot now
  • Of course, I'm not literally a pirate but I feel like in a fairytale scenario
  • I'm more of a swashbuckler than a princess. So we went with that one with a few small tweaks
  • Alright rinrin found via a new shirt and it has a batwing sleeve
  • I'm gonna be a pirate bat with no eyepatch
  • But a wing I ran a pirate PI bat what we also added a corset from Abiah Taaj. What do you think?
  • I liked a lot. Yeah, I like this one. Can you breathe great. No as well as a few more pieces of jewelry
  • I feel like I'm marrying you now
  • Alright, so after a little bit of shopping, I think we have the final outfit in these two very large almost acts
  • Yours is a mine is more of a sack. I'm so excited. I'm excited too
  • so next up we're gonna be doing a makeup and hair and
  • completing the look
  • So the next day we rounded up our outfit haul and headed over to the shinjuku area to shot degrom
  • Okay
  • So we are here at Shanta Grom which is a hair salon that has a large lolita clientele because of the styles that they do
  • with Linda who is a hair stylist as well as a Lolita herself and de Linda was gonna be
  • Tackling my main and giving it an appropriate do and as for my makeup
  • Rinrin was actually going to be the one to scale the mountain. That is my face
  • What rinrin is today outfitted in a gothic when you call it a Gothic Lolita style pretty goth I think pretty Gothic Lolita style
  • Linda says yes. Linda says yes. God. Yes, just to kind of match my vibe
  • So I popped on my outfit - the corset and stuffed my petticoat itself into a chair. I'm just like kind of like
  • Fluffing out of it
  • I'm kind of like bread and a can right now so I could get my
  • Makeup did no rinrin's vision for the look was something dramatic and purple to complement my dark outfit now
  • I think overall Lolita makeup follows general Japanese makeup trends, but just more exaggerated
  • There are some pretty extreme looks out there
  • But I think the general rule is that you just don't want your face to get lost in your bonnet
  • It's just all about balance
  • So first up rinrin used some purple and gold eyeshadow to give me a bit of a smoky eye
  • Let me see cute, and she was pretty liberal with the dark shadow all around the socket
  • We are going for that funky. I look so the j-league works with it perfectly. Yes, you'll have natural natural bags
  • natural gosh
  • And she also added some red blush like really high up my cheeks to emphasize that pulled an all nighter
  • Vibe after that. We popped on some long fake lashes
  • This is my come hither look and finally added a dark blotted lip with a faint bit of gold at the center
  • Alright, so what do you think? We're done? Oh
  • Wow
  • This I see a lot right here. I love it. Yes. I look so different amazing. It looks great. You did a great job
  • Thank you. Yeah, I love it. Hello. And with our makeup look done. Our next step was the hair style
  • So Linda what's our plan for the hair today?
  • Is that kind of like what rinrin has with the ribbons yeah. Oh
  • So I'll have my hair be corseted my waist be corseted and my ankles be corset it of course
  • Is it everywhere did now for this look?
  • Linda basically started separating my hair into multiple braids and then lacing those braids together with ribbon
  • So my scalp almost resembled a bodice Oh interesting. So you're like corseting my braids together
  • Yeah, I get it. Now. This is a current hair trend
  • that's popular amongst loli does that Linda does a lot I am terrible at shoelaces and tying my shoes and
  • Anything involving shoelaces. So this is way out of my league now besides corset hair
  • There are a couple of other staple lolita hair looks that you see a lot notably the he may or princess haircut
  • Which is basically like straight across bangs with two longer side locks that frame your face as well as wigs
  • hats and general head pieces
  • But I think in our case we were getting away with just doing a lot of ribbons and aside from those
  • Linda was also curling the bottom part of my hair. That wasn't corseted. I'm being doused in hairspray and I like it
  • Smells like apples and with that my hair was done. Oh wow
  • Oh look at the back of my head. It was ridiculous. I'm very disappointed that I didn't say that in person
  • I don't even understand what's happening there, but Linda's skills are ridiculous
  • How did you?
  • Where does one end and the other begin see I told you I this is way out of my league
  • So with my head fully dressed it was time to put on the rest of my outfit and I'm preparing myself mentally
  • They're preparing the corset. I'm preparing my long
  • You should hold on to something y'all turn around
  • I think I should have realized when Linda was doing my hair that she really wasn't gonna take any prisoners with the corseting
  • Yeah, no, it's great. Like I have a giant fake butt right now. So I think that's like a
  • Late Victorian style. Oh, yeah
  • We'll look it up when we get back to the u.s. From there
  • We added on our jewelry and des stepped into my very high heels to finish off the ensemble
  • You're like an avatar thing
  • Blue oh, wow. I can't see my head
  • But I love the outfit after getting a better view of the whole look
  • I was actually feeling way more Tim Burton than James Cameron right now because you're in like a hair salon
  • It is kind of like time
  • exactly
  • Alright one day you and I are gonna go into the murdering business together
  • Rinrin jumped in to explain exactly what we were proposing and what I will say is that linda seemed kind of down
  • Yeah, yes, yes, I knew there was a reason we got along so having been fully Lolita fied
  • We bid Linda adieu and ventured out into the world or more specifically back to Harajuku
  • All right, so this is my final
  • Lolita look, I think we ended up with a really cool goth
  • Lolita bat pirate look
  • Ren's giving me a thumbs up. I was like, will you validate me?
  • She says yes
  • and in addition to our corseted pirate base our look also included the
  • All-important petticoat these patterned tights a garter with a bow that fell down a fair few times
  • Some black wrist cuffs one ring and two necklaces which we matched with our sunken eye makeup
  • Look our corseted hair and a pair of gray colored contacts. I actually feel quite good in the outfit
  • the corset is a little tight and the shoes our little
  • Intimidatingly tall but I'm feeling quite at home in the batwings. And I'm also loving these wrist cuffs. I just keep like
  • Squirreling around beyond feeling like this was a very personalized Lolita look that I connected with I definitely had enough
  • Trappings of 19th century pirate to really get me into character
  • Sure, definitely a phrase
  • But though I was feeling the outfit like
  • Emotionally there were some physical elements to contend with look at these tiny steps
  • You're making tough like trying really hard not to tip over a mountain goat
  • And also not to trip over my own feet on the stairs, haha
  • Victory is mine surprisingly though. The corset wasn't really giving me that many problems
  • I'm actually doing quite well in the course and I'm standing up straight. Give me a few more hours
  • We'll see how I feel, but right now I'm feeling pretty good
  • now while we were in Harajuku
  • We wanted to take our own streets nap style photos of us in our Gothic Lolita looks but my shoes once more posed a challenge
  • If I have like one foot up and one foot back, then it kind of evened out, right?
  • Yeah, is it the perfect place for you to take this photo together?
  • slightly on like a slope
  • and once we had those under our belt or should I say on our phones it was time to move on to a
  • Common Lolita activity afternoon tea now as rinrin mentioned in our interview afternoon tea is a pretty typical
  • activity for the Lolita community and it gives everyone a chance to dress up a little bit nicer and
  • to go and have an enjoyable evening or lunch together that said it seems like it's less about the
  • Actual tea, and it's more about showing off your proverbial Sunday best outfit and hanging out
  • It does very much fit the aesthetic. I would like to take a lot of pictures. Yes afternoon tea set
  • So with a team here's the twist. You only talk about the beauty guru community
  • It's not supposed to be that kind of tea it's supposed to be real tea and that's the team oh my god
  • And chick talk has made its way into our video
  • Now rinrin had made us reservations at a place called cue pot cafe in Oda wadda
  • Which is a very charming shop that has a lot of lolita complimentary backgrounds and seating areas. Oh did I mention?
  • this month this place has a
  • Community cat themed there's no actual cats here. We thought his cat cafe for a second, but
  • As the part of the cat tea while we were deciding on what cat themed snacks we should get oh my god luck
  • And so here we were presented with matching cat jewelry to wear during our tea party
  • It's quite the contrast of your other necklace. Yes. Yeah. It's sort of like Emily Dickinson and her cats
  • That's darkness and very quickly our food and drink arrived p.m. Funds off. Yes
  • is tea time all you could ever hope for it is
  • Coffee and buy food, I mean waves and waves of sweet snacks. Oh my Wow, that's a fun day
  • You know homemaker you do this
  • I had a really great time at our small tea party and I think
  • Rinrin was correct in that it just felt like the right place to be while all dressed up
  • There are actually also other girls dressed in Lolita
  • Apparently some combination of
  • afternoon tea
  • Graham worthy treats aesthetic surroundings and cats brings all the lolita's to the yard look for cats
  • But eventually after finishing our tea set posing at the surrounding booths and exploring the other floors of the cafe
  • Look, there's a giant mushroom. Wow, look at that. It was time for us to say farewell to cue pot my soccer changing shoes up
  • Don't tell anyone and I think my shoes coming off kind of marked the beginning of the end of my first Lolita
  • Experience. Okay. So was it a successful Lolita day Reverend?
  • Overall I really dug my time in our Lolita outfit
  • there are a lot of elements to this outfit and keeping track of all of the elements is definitely a task, but I
  • Really enjoy it as a former theater kid myself
  • I had a great time playing what I felt was like a very meticulous and
  • Extravagant round of dress-up and my ribs are hurting a little and my feet are definitely hurting but my wrists are warm and comfortable
  • So as for Lolita style overall, I definitely understand the appeal
  • I mean the outfits and the accessories are awesome
  • But beyond the actual clothing
  • What's interesting to me is how Lolita fashion brings people together?
  • because the emotion and
  • enthusiasm behind the style becomes like a shared passion as rinrin says it's like having friends in different countries you
  • Might have never met before but you have this already strong bond. I love that
  • It's fashion plus community and to be honest. The tea party was pretty tasty
  • So I get why people like that - so when all is said and done I could see myself wearing this look again
  • Especially if rinrin comes to visit us or you know, maybe if I wanted to dress up for a performance of the Pirates of Penzance
  • Let's wrap this up. Thank you guys so much for watching
