Lolita Prints as Song Prompts

[avatar]

Part of my day job is designing textile prints for lolita fashion https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lolita_fashion We're still struggling to get off the ground business-wise, so I have a pretty long backlog of ideas for prints I intend to illustrate when I get the chance. A lot of them have very interesting titles, which could potentially inspire very interesting songs (although some of these are working titles and won't be the final name of the print). I'm just going to go straight down the list and type them in until I hit the character limit.

@yam655 Oh, tag! #lolitaprompt I guess?

[avatar]
@yam655

@complexissimple There's a strong anime influence in some of these. Would it be keeping to the theme if I pulled an idea other anime? (I watch a lot of anime.)

[avatar]

@yam655 If it's inspired by anime and not a lolita print or idea for a lolita print, probably don't use the tag. If it's both then feel free! I think it's probably also fine if it's not necessarily something from my list - you could have your own ideas for prints, or be inspired by existing prints from established lolita brands.

@yam655

@complexissimple That makes sense. I can work with that.

These are gold! Thank you

Good collection of titles. Let's see what comes up.

@fuzzy

"Shank a Bitch" really speaks to me.

[avatar]

This really has nothing to do with songwriting, but it is tangentially relevant to this thread: We just started an Instagram for our lolita (and other Victorian-inspired fashion) prints. It's called @prince_in_progress because right now everything is in the work-in-progress stage.

These titles are awesome! And good inputs for the DALL-E challenge.

I've created a movie trailer for "Killer Donut B Movie". https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/2404#c13338. I used craiyon.com for the images.
