A manba kind of day  


So I got kind of curious because of a friend who is a total Gal chaser. I'd heard about romanba, which is kind of like manba in frilly dresses that aren't really lolita, but had some shared aspects of it. Buuuuut I kind of wanted to go extreme both ways and created some monster of a style. I don't know if it looks horrendously tacky or fantastic, but I guess you can be the judge :B

So I present to you, lolitanba hahaha





And the more the merrier C:

lol I can't pose

MAKEUP LOL there is a lot of it brb breaking out OTL




This took SO LONG because I fucked up my eyes the first try and had to wipe half my face off D; because of this my foundation also ended up blotchy but you work with what you can ; w ;b

i think if you'd done this a few years ago i wouldn't be as "eugh" about it...only because manba mostly seems passe now, in the same sense that maxi pad headdresses have disappeared from lolita.

maxi pad what

I like the coord but tbh I don't really like those styles mixed together.
That's probably just my personal taste though :)
maiko_star on October 22nd, 2009 07:51 am (UTC)
No I had the same thought, well done in both styles, the make up is great but they really don't go together. XD

Courtneyjanitors on October 22nd, 2009 07:15 am (UTC)
ohhhhh wow!! hahaha!
i'll be honest, i'm really no fan of manba, but.. i kinda like this? because you obviously pulled both of the styles off well!
purinyappykurapurinyappykura on October 22nd, 2009 08:03 am (UTC)
I love manba in a lolwtfisthis kind of way and because it's so out there it's really interesting to me, but I can get how a lot of people would not like it XD
Thanks 8DD
lustidylliclustidyllic on October 22nd, 2009 07:31 am (UTC)
I feel my own bias because I really hate the manba style & make-up, just... nothing about it is aesthetically pleasing to me. Having said that, you clearly did a good job with the make-up & co-ordinated everything together quite nicely.
purinyappykurapurinyappykura on October 22nd, 2009 08:04 am (UTC)
Ahahaha manba makeup is so fucking weird, but its so much fun to see yourself in it at least once, just for fun or whatever haha.

Thanks ~ 8D

Tacky to the MAXXXXX
Catharsissherridea on October 22nd, 2009 07:38 am (UTC)
In an evolution of styles sense, I like it. I can see this possibly being a trend in the future as gal, hime and lolita continue to mix together and interact.

At the same time, it IS still kind of weird to adjust to. I would like to see this same concept with more colors, bigger accessories and platform boots!

Way to be daring. I am highly amused. :)
purinyappykurapurinyappykura on October 22nd, 2009 08:02 am (UTC)
Oooh platforms! I wanted to wear heels for this outfit to get a little more Gal aesthetic but I will try that in the future. I wanted to get some gaudily-coloured fake flowers and put them in the wig but it was like 9PM when I did this so it was too late XD;
And need some beeeaadds or bracelets or something XDb
Katkatabulous on October 22nd, 2009 07:45 am (UTC)
Romanba isn't even a real style >o> It was just an egg magazine spread.
purinyappykurapurinyappykura on October 22nd, 2009 07:59 am (UTC)
Oh, really? XDD Damn hahaha. I'm not an ~expert~ on gal styles, but I thought people like... actually wore it or made it a style at some point? Like it ended up being sort of obscure or something? Idkkkk

i like your coords ^ ^
rozenxmaidenrozenxmaiden on October 22nd, 2009 11:27 am (UTC)
I like gal mixed with lolita, but I think extreme manba make-up looks a bit out of place :P

However, I think your make-up is really awesome, and so is your outfit ^__^ And I totally support you for trying new stuff with lolita, it's fun to do :)

Oh my god such tacky goodness I LOVE IT HAHAHAHA LAST PHOTO IS AWESOME <3

Manba isn't dead, it just isn't popular. There are still some of them around.
Ivanaherfluffyness on October 22nd, 2009 01:37 pm (UTC)
I love it, although I think it's kinda scary xD I think it would make a perfect Halloween costume ^^ btw. you did an awesome job with your make-up, well done ^^
miamia_cupcakes on October 22nd, 2009 01:59 pm (UTC)
i don't really like the mix the two styles are so diffrent you just can't put them together ,However manaba isn't dead .I frequent the gal communities/blogs and there are still many japanese manbas.
Angelenjerumuffin on October 22nd, 2009 03:45 pm (UTC)
I'm not a fan of manba so I think this is BLECH and OH GOD NO, but I like the outfits!
misssaitoumisssaitou on October 22nd, 2009 03:55 pm (UTC)
Well, I'm gonna have to say that you got both styles down. XDD For some odd reason I kind of like Gal/Manba. I wouldn't want to do it myself (or maybe I wouuuld D: ), but I seem to like staring at pictures of them for a long time. I guess they're intriguing to me.
♥♥♥kaninmelodi on October 22nd, 2009 03:55 pm (UTC)
I.... love this. I'm one of those who believe that manba and lolita could never work together, sadly, I still think so, but this is still fucking AWESOME!!! X333
nyappy_jojonyappy_jojo on October 22nd, 2009 04:15 pm (UTC)
I'm not a manba fan but..THIS IS AWESOME <33 and the last pic made me giggle xD I also like the mam skirt a lot
Salsa Carlionsalsa_carlion2 on October 22nd, 2009 05:37 pm (UTC)
Man I haaaaate manba, it just looks like you're blacking up in some horribly racist way. But, everyone likes different things I guess.
