I was curious if anyone else found that their spirituality or religious stance has had an impact on how you "lolita".My closest divine relationship is with Hermes. I think he influences me in that I jump from style to style (anything kuro, no! classic, no! sweet, no!). I keep feeling compelled to light peoples' paths through the darkness of ita-ism (I resist though) and I nearly always make certain to do the exact opposite of what other people are doing or expect. For example, tonight I'm going to a goth club and will debut my predominantly pink ice cream themed coordinate. Understandably, depending on your tradition YMMV a great, great deal.On another note, are there any other Recons here?
I don't feel that being Pagan has particularly influenced my styles, but it has made me more earth-conscious in relationship to my spending, shipping options, etc. Since I import about half of my wardrobe, I can't really count on the ethical qualities of the manufacturing, or whether or not they use fair-trade materials, but when I make things for myself, I keep those things in mind.I'm not a Recon, but I think a lot of reconstructionist faiths are really interesting. I take it you're Hellinistic? I'm sort of a middle-ground Pagan, with borrowed elements from Native American shamanism, Wicca, and Druidism. I've toyed with reconstructionist Druidism, but I find it isn't fluid enough for my needs.
i do think it has influenced me. I won't buy items that have religious wordings on them, and i hesitate greatly over crosses. (I like the look of them, but i don't like to wear the symbol of another's religion)
