Lolita Blog Carnival: Anime Inspired Coordinate

I was really excited about doing the Lolita Blog Carnival theme for the week: an anime themed coordinate! I mentally debated between a number of magical girls such as Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura, the uniform designs of K-ON! and Lucky Star!, or even something Rozen Maiden themed (of course not realizing that Innocent World had already done a collaboration). Finally, I had to settle on my all time favorite anime character: Saber. She was the primary protagonists of Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Zero while also appearing in other Nasuverse works such as Carnival Phantasm and Fate/Hollow Ataraxia. I've always had a thing for chivalry, and I even cosplayed the suit version of Saber at Kamicon 2014.

OP: Atelier Boz
Underskirt: Fanplusfriend
Circle Lenses: PinkyParadise
Shoes: Vivienne Westwood
Beside the obligatory bow in her hair, I really struggled with coming up with accessories. I actually want F Yeah Lolita's 'lolita armor' fake trend prediction to come true in this instance. I also found a lack of silver lolita shoes. Though gold seems to have become rather popular with even Bodyline promising a pair in the near future, I had a hard time finding a pair of nice silver shoes to go with the coordinate, but I did eventually settle on the pictured pair of Vivienne Westwood heels.

Thank you for joining me as I created a coordinate around Saber. Please be sure to check the other Lolita Blog Carnival links below to see more anime inspired lolita fun.

    1. I'd love to just actually own some Vivienne Westwood x Melissa shoes. ^_^

  2. Ahhh, I love this coordinate! =O I'm a bit guilty of totally wanting the Pauldron thing to come true, bwahaha.

    1. Thank you! Ah man, I don't remember the name of the person, but I've seen one steampunk lolita coordinate where the girl incorporated weathered looking armor on one arm to really cool effect. I wonder how gothic lolita combined with more medieval styled armor would look like?
