RESULT
41-60 points means you’re probably a very well-rounded Lolita. You have a fair sized wardrobe that allows a variety of outfits and some style experimentation, you have a few Lolita friends, and you’ve attended your fair share of meetups and even fashion shows. You probably have a few volumes of the Gothic & Lolita Bible hanging around your bookshelf and you’ve definitely taken an interest in Lolita hobbies. Your next step is probably to step out of your comfort bubble, try a new style you’ve always wanted to try, host your own meetups, or perhaps finally apply to be a model for a local Lolita fashion show.

So, I need 14 more points to reach “Experienced Lolita,” so I am going to pick fourteen to be goals:
*You own a parasol
*You’ve bought a lucky pack
*You wear a print you’ve designed yourself
*You have enough Lolita outfits to wear a new one every day for a month
*You own an old school rectangle headdress
*You own a bonnet
*You’ve worn something on your head that was never intended to be worn on a head
*You’ve worn one of the lesser worn Lolita substyles such as Punk, Ero, Wa, or Guro
*You’ve made something from a Lolita sewing pattern book
*You’ve celebrated International Lolita Day
*You’ve twinned with someone
*You’ve traveled multiple hours to attend a meetup
*You’ve been to a Lolita swap meet
*You’ve modeled in a Lolita fashion show
