You are so sweet! First of all thank you! I LOVE the idea of more Transformer Lolitas out there. YAY!
The idea for the Transformer Lolita belong to my friend Yvonne. She was Optimus Prime in our original group.
Fanime 2006-2007??? I’m getting old. The original concept involved knee high boots for everyone.. but my legs are too chubby for boots.
We all called them Lolibots (Autobots) and Deceptimaids (Decepticon) So all Autobots were a Lolita theme and Decepticons were maid themed. Yvonne gave me her blessing to design other outfits so I actually DID design a Starscream.
The new version of Megatron was designed by my friend Diana.
I also did designs for Rachet, Prowl, Bulkhead, Soundwave and Shockwave. They are hiding somewhere in my sketchbook… somewhere. If you want to see them give me a holler. I might just scan them and dump them on tumblr for all to see.
By Skyfire did you mean Jetfire? You could go either way with him since he was a Decepticon that became and Autobot. :) Heck even have a bit of both in the design. He’s got the round shoulders so I would definitely go for a poof sleeve. Or make a reversable apron with one side Deceoticon and the other side with an Autobot Logo!!
I would say find a Lolita dress you like and use that as a jumping off point, making sure to incorporate the colors of the Transformer in the design, along with any distinguishing features. Like for Bumblebee I added the horns. For Jazz my friend added racing stripes and the race car number on her dress.
Super Cute right? (I might be bias lol)
I personally love the idea of having cute little mini wings for all the jets. I think the idea of the long sleeve lolita works well with Transformers because of their weird bulky arms. But I made mine for those hot con summers so I wanted short sleeves. I have remade my bumblebee apron 3 times now and gotten 3 different wigs for it.. so most of all have fun! And if you are ever in Georgia let me know, we can have a Transformer Tea Party!!!
AND I WANT TO SEE PICTURES!!! :D
