Lolita wigs are becoming more and more available, spotted on nearly everyone these days. The typical lolita wig consists of a curly base and is usually supplied with two clip-on falls, like curly ponytails. Mostly you just pop on the wig, clip on the falls, and go! It’s instantly cute and a great way to change up the color and tones of your coordinates. But that’s not the only way to go! They’re so much more versatile than that. The one I’m using here is from Cosplay Wigs USA, in their wavy light brown model. I love mine, it’s such a pretty warm cinnamon with beautifully full curls! You can see me wearing it here.
So here are three really easy ways you can style your lolita wig that will stand out from the crowd!
This one I’ve dubbed the ‘Sailor Moon’ because it reminds me of her signature ‘odango’ style. It looks best if you add on brooches, clips or matching hairbows on elastics. I’ve decided to use a Chocomint star clip, because it reminds me of the fantasy space theme and continues the Sailor Moon look, but anything you think is cute would be a great accent!

The Braided Crown is perfect for more classic, toned-down sweet, or even mori girl styles. The braids are a pretty accent of texture, and this look beautifully sets off faux roses or an elegant bow. Make sure you braid to the very ends, and use clear elastics – I used regular fabric ones so that you can see how the braids are wrapped.
The Hime (for those not in the know, hime is the Japanese word for princess ) Fountain gives the appearance of very full, cascading curls, and looks best accented with a large head-eating bow or tiara comb. This is probably the easiest style here – it’s still clip-and-go, you just move the extensions up a little! ;) I saw Maki wearing this look at the San Francisco Angelic Pretty opening and thought it looked so adorable! I’m wearing this look with my pink and blonde wig at the Tangled meetup!
And just a little extra – did you know it’s Sanrio’s 50th birthday this year?! As a final bang, McDonald’s is giving out digital Sanrio watches. I swung by (mm, caramel mocha!) and got one… but was a little let down by how plain it looked! Even though I got My Melody
… she looked a little sad, not good for a Sanrio character!
The six watches you could get with Happy Meal… I’m dying for the white Sugarbunny! I’m not sure why this picture doesn’t show brown Sugarbunny, I think in some places they have Badtz-Maru instead.
So I sat down with an extra packet of Swarvoski rhinestones and a leftover glitter bow cabochon! I’m so pleased with result:
I think it’s kind of kitschy cute! I can’t wait to wear a My Melody coordinate now! She’s never been my absolute favorite character (a spot reserved for Sugar Minuet & Little Twin Stars) but I can’t say no to anything that comes in pure pink with a tiny little smile!
Just goes to show that you can find cuteness anywhere ♥
