Buttcape’s Gothic and Lolita Wardrobe Post 2021

wardrobe post banner

Welcome to my wardrobe post: 2021 edition! This is the most complete wardrobe posts I’ve ever made. Usually, I procrastinate and run out of time before January ends, so I omit a lot of accessories. Well, not this time because my 2021 started out rough. In short, I caught the you-know-what and had two weeks to myself therefore had a lot of time to photograph my pieces. Since my indecisive brain decides to change the format every time I want to post, I have to photograph every piece in a new way every time, so these are all new photos.

Why you should make a wardrobe post

The annual wardrobe post tradition started on the EGL Livejournal community. Traditionally, wardrobe posts should be shared in January of each year. Wardrobe posts are a good way to benchmark your lolita fashion journey. It’s also a way to share how clothing looks outside of stock photos. If you just want to flex, that’s alright, too. Whether you have a big or small wardrobe, it’s a great way to show appreciation for and preserve lolita fashion.

My Wardrobe

My wardrobe mainly consists of ouji and gothic lolita fashion though this year I decided to include some casual pieces from Japanese brands. If I had to describe my closet in one phrase, it would be “a goth weeb with a sweet tooth.” On a day-to-day basis, I wear mix of casual goth and otaku fashion. My closet is not 100% gothic though since I’ve always had a soft spot for the sweet side of kawaii fashion. As you may know, I’m also a food blogger with a penchant for desserts. Lolita fashion is filled with dessert prints, so I do fall into temptation every once in awhile.

Since my last wardrobe post in 2019, I buy more accessories now rather than main pieces. My closet is at maximum capacity, so there isn’t much more room for main pieces. The top four brands of my closet are Alice and the Pirates, Moi meme Moitie, Na+H, Atelier Boz. Between 2018 and 2020, I absorbed part of my partner’s wardrobe which led me to obtain a surge of Angelic Pretty.

Thank you for viewing my wardrobe! This is my most complete wardrobe post thus far resulting in 556 photos in total. I omitted novelty bags, wigs, publications, and offbrand pieces. Also excluded were anime/video game clothing not produced by a J-fashion brand, but perhaps I may do a separate wardrobe post for those.

Lastly, have some graphs because who doesn’t like graphs? I made two of them. First, the top graph is a line graph is the quantity by brand. Since I mostly own things from Japanese brands, I counted by brand name. The “other” category includes misc. Japanese brands, western brands, Chinese brands, and other indie brand pieces. The second graph is a pie chart for pieces by type. I combined all of the accessories into one slice.

In the future, I would love to write about each piece in detail though that’s another totally ambitious long-term project. For the rest of 2021, I hope to knock out some more items on my wishlist. If you have any questions about a certain piece, feel free to drop a comment!

  1. Your wardrobe post is so good I literally swooned, it was so worth the effort! Some of those pictures are even better than brand stock photos, so no doubts in the future, should someone look for some of those pieces, coming across this post will turn out to be incredibly helpful.

    • Thank you! It means a lot that you complimented my photography. I’ve been working on improving it in the last year, so I’m glad it shows. Sometimes I just want to take the brand’s photos myself haha.

  2. Wonderful post! I really liked a lot of your Deorart cutsews – they look very comfy. For 2021, assuming Covid becomes a thing of the past – is there anything you want to change up with your wardrobe and coords?

    • All of those cutsews are what I wear daily haha; they’re very comfy! Going forward, I would like to lean into accessories more! I think I have plenty of main pieces, but my coords end up looking the same after awhile since I don’t have enough different types of accessories.
