Lolita-fying your BoS?

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 lol

I 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!

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~
