Hey there! This is my first post ever on LJ, so yay for that!I just had this weird idea this morning skimming through other lolita communities. Would any of you ever decorate your BoS (if you keep one) to make it more loli?I don't think I would ever, mostly because I love classic sweet lolita so it would kind of be really strange looking I think. >^< Really doesn't fit with my withcy vibe lolI can imagine a gothic lolita BoS turning out pretty interesting though. So the questions are, would you ever do it? Have you?Do you think a sweet-ish BoS would be odd?I hope this isn't too much of a weird question...Have a lovely day, and blessed be!-Cassandra
I think that it would be fine to decorate your BoS however you see fit :) If it distracts you from its purpose, then probably not, but considering many people just use 3-ring binders (which are not very "witchy" at all!) it doesn't matter if it looks "witchy" or not, just as long as you like it and it works for you :)
I think if you want it to be sweet and frilly, make it so! A BoS is a private thing, IMO. Mine used to be in a fabric bound journal with roses on the cover, and before that it was in a lined notebook. As long as it means something to you, and you're comfortable using it, then go for it!
Since a Book of Shadows is supposed to be a personalized religious journal, decorating it in a way that is meaningful to you would not at all be out of place. I personally would not, because I prefer a more earthy book (leather, handmade, etc), but I don't see why you couldn't! I would actually love to see some Lolita-themed Book covers!
Yeah for sure~ If I end up actually decorating it I'll be sure to post some pictures of the cover if you'd care to see~
