The Quest For Ultima Loli
I’ve joined another model search. This time it’s for dolldelight! She’s looking for someone to represent her brand in the Philippines, and I believe I’d do a good job at it! Please vote for me? I need to get into the next round! <3

Doing another round of this at the sort of start of the year.
V is taking 2013 head on and is going to do some great things that matter to her. It’d be great if you could do me a personal solid and give her some votes. She’s a bit behind at the moment but I’m confident she can grab a few more votes to make into the the Top 20. I feel she’s a strong candidate as she not only can wear and model clothes well, but she also knows what hair and wig styles go with what, creating her own signature look. As evidenced above.
Every bit counts and the final tally is this Saturday. It’ll only take a few moments to register a vote. You can check out more of her in the plug list below but first off:

Reblog if you want to share this on your timeline with your own friends. Would appreciate any extra support that comes in from folks from everywhere else. Thanks all.

Dress me up, dress me down.
I’m Vanessa, and I love dressing up. I’m a cosplayer, a lolita, and a frustrated girly-girl.
VanDressed will be my online dumpsite for all things that are related to dressing up, like shopping hauls, fashion (mis)adventures, and even some crafting/propwork. Starting this blog has been in the back of my head for a long time, and it’s finally here! You will find all manner of entries, from wig and makeup trials to OOTDs, costume progress, sewing/crafting projects, features on the people who inspire me and my style, and the occasional underwear-related post. If any of that sounds even remotely interesting to you, then hit that “Follow” button! :)——————————Photo credits (L-R): Jio Verona, Keru Bear, Martin Callanta——————————Facebook || YouTube || LOOKBOOK.nu || Instagram

Hello there! Some of you may have noticed that I&#8217;m not actively posting here anymore. &lt;/3 It&#8217;s because I haven&#8217;t dressed up in loli in a while. It&#8217;s impractical in my line of work, and I don&#8217;t get to go out much anymore. :(
That being said, I still do dress up, just not in lolita. If you&#8217;re still interested in following my fashion and cosplay misadventures, then please follow VanDressed, my new dress-up blog. 
What can you expect from VanDressed? OOTDs, cosplays, makeup and wig styling tutorials, and some crafts posts. I&#8217;ll also be posting WIPs of my propwork, costumes, and clothes. Pretty much everything I do here, except it&#8217;s no longer limited to lolita.
I will still post here on occasion, but I&#8217;ll definitely be spending more time over there. 
Plenty of love and hugs,Vanessa ♥

The last few weeks have been pure insanity.
And I wouldn&#8217;t have it any other way. For now, here&#8217;s a picture of me and my friends goofing off. 
I&#8217;ll be getting around to doing lolita shoots soon, so stay tuned for those! I have to re-shoot my wig styling video because the video file got corrupted during file transfer.&#160;; A&#160;;
I&#8217;m also planning to do a mini-series of blog entries about people who inspire me, fashion-wise! Some of them will not be lolitas, but they&#8217;re still pretty awesome. I&#8217;ll be starting on those soon. :D

1 Wig, 4 Looks, featured on Gothic Lolita Wigs&#8217; blog.
Had fun shooting this set! Twintails wigs can be very versatile, you don&#8217;t have to wear it the exact same way everyone else does. XD

It&#8217;s been a while.
I haven&#8217;t had the chance to wear lolita for a bit, since the weather here&#8217;s crazy. Raining one moment, then ridiculously hot the next. 
I&#8217;ll be downsizing my lolita wardrobe to make way for my renewed love for ball-jointed dolls (BJDs), so watch out for my closet sale post? :D

Keep on smiling. :)
A smile has always been my coping mechanism. Nowadays, when people stare at me/glare at me when I wear lolita in public, I just smile at them. It makes them realize how cranky/mean they look, I think. XD

My First Lolita Meet
Your &#8220;firsts&#8221;can happen at any point in your life. I&#8217;ve been wearing lolita for about 1.5 years now, and this is the first time I have been able to attend our local meet. Pretty late, but better than never? :P I&#8217;d like to thank my waifu, Caz (seated, beside me in front), for organizing this one. I enjoyed talking to the other girls face-to-face, and everyone dressed well. :D
My outfit was inspired by more old-school sweet this time, back when prints weren&#8217;t all the rage. I think it turned out okay, though I&#8217;m sure someone out there will bash me for wearing the infamous maxi-pad headdress and fingerless lace gloves. XD

Back to sweet lolita for me! There&#8217;s no denying that my favorite color is pink. XD Once again, all pieces were bought/received separately, and I was lucky enough to have them all fit together in one coordinate. ♥
