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. Cool. Would love to see it worn. :D

    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?
