The creepy and cute ‘Pastel Goth’ work of lOll3

loll3-intro
Every once in a while I come across something new on Pinterest and a whole night is gone in seconds. This happened to me again a few weeks ago, when I came across a board called ‘Pastel Goth’ and clicked on it. ‘Pastel Goth’ tuned out to be a whole movement, and could be summarized as a combination of three things:

  1. old-fashioned, maybe even cliché, gothic (lots of black, occult symbolism, bats, the night and the macabre romantic)
  2. the galaxy trend (galaxy print, stars, rainbows, unicorns and pastel colors)
  3. a tiny touch of kawaii (the Japanese word for cute: think of big eyed creatures and a hint of Lolita style)

Many of the boards I visited featured the work of Italian illustrator lOll3, and I immediately crushed on her creepy cute work. lOll3’s work is sweet and cute, but has a creepy touch by featuring witches, symbolism and a decent amount of goth. Enjoy!

Last but not least for my fellow Tim Burton fans: how awesome is this Beetlejuice series?
