This post has probably been the most work I’ve put into something for no actual good reason other than I wanted to do it and it seemed fun. The idea certainly seemed a lot more fun before I had to trek through all my five hard disks in search of things, and in the mean time I also had the misfortune to discover that I’ve lost another month worth of photos [discovering that I have lost photos, to me, is quite upsetting.] – which happened to me before and really made me sad. But now that I’ve had a few moments to recover, I’m finally ready.
I am here to present to you a more-or-less complete overview of the times Ash and I have dressed up to match together. I say match because there are a few things in there that aren’t ‘perfect’ twinning, but I like them anyway.
It was quite a funny realisation after going through so many old photos that we’ve known each other for such a long time and only started twinning about a year and a bit after we met. We also really don’t always twin or match our outfits and it was quite nice to see what we’ve been wearing and how our styles changed over the years. I think sometime in the future I might do another one of these big posts with a select few
[because otherwise I will die] of my own outfits and style changes over my Lolita ‘era’ that started in 2007. BUT that’s not why you’re here.
You’re here for ASH AND VIEF TWIN-TWINS PHOTO EXTRAVAGANZA 2010-2012 ™ – like I said, there are a LOT of photos. There are so many, I’ve split this post up into pages!
February 2010, our first twin ever! We wore Innocent World’s Lotta print to a meet in Antwerp.
At the end of February, we wore something Ero Lolita for the Emilie Autumn concert also in Antwerp. There’s a long and sad story about those corsets, but I won’t get into it. This was our first properly planned twin, I made the crinolines [and those tulle skirts you can’t see in this photo] and my bloomers and we got those corsets made juuust in time. It will be obvious that we really like red and white pairings, and that we also re-use things, but I don’t think there’s a shame in that, haha.
Paris trip, June-July 2010
The first weekend of July means Japan Expo in Paris! This was our first vacation together.
Wearing Baby’s L’oiseau Bleu in front of the Baby store on the day of arrival.
Our first day at Japan Expo: Metamorphose’s Apple print – we both really love this print and have multiple items of the series, haha.
Day 2 of Japan Expo: our outfits from February with different socks [no tights, because it’s HOT at JE] bows by Baby, cool sunglasses – we also really love those, haha – and no corsets.
At the Angelic Pretty Tea Party, with Maki and Asuka who are twinning Fantasic Dolly. We weren’t twinning but matched anyway and I really really loved this day! I’m wearing AP’s Milky Berry and Ash is wearing AP’s Star Night Theatre.
We made it into KERA magazine! (●♡∀♡) [bottom right, we even got a bonus sunglasses~ picture haha]
At the Lolita Convention with our friend – I looove this photo haha. ♡ We are all so sassy!
The next day at the Convention Lolita with our friend Ada from the UK! We’re twinning Baby’s Mother Goose. Mother Goose is actually one of my dream prints and I look forward to doing a better twin of this in the future.
