It’s interesting being a lolita and a nerd. A lot of us are nerdy (hence loli_geeks) but not a lot of us share our love of all things dorky in our outfits, so I try and incorporate little nerdy bits here and there. A couple of tips for doing this well:
T-Shirts Most nerds have at least one, if not 300 nerd-centered t-shirts. They’re comfortable and excellent for casual coords, while not fully delving into making nerd-themed lolita.
Sewing Things I think we’ve all heard about Star Wars Lolita at some time or another. Using a nerdy print or making your own is one way to incorporate your nerdiness into lolita. Proceed with caution though, if the print is too crazy it might not work out.
Accessories Coordinating an outfit that’s fairly plain lolita and adding some very nerdy accessories is an excellent way to let your inner nerd out. Nerdy jewelry, purses, socks, that sort of thing, is a great idea.
