I seem to be on a bit of a Lolita roll at the moment, what with finding the band "Lareine" (which gives me those wonderful Malice Mizer vibes, what with them being roadies for the band at one point in their career!), wearing my IW Archangel dress and being complimented on it by a girl in Hobby Craft last week, and editing my book cover of Aika. So even though I'm not a member of the Lolita Blog Carnival, I thought I'd still join in on the fun. *laughs* You can see Caramea's lovely entry here - I love her fresh ideas!
1) A new take on the 18th Century, including the French Rococo and the British Georgian era. For example, delicate Marie Antoinette-esque tea sets, or even Antoinette's favourite places in Versailles, Georgian ladies in waiting at the courts, and those gorgeous shoes that feature in the Marie Antoinette film!
2) Wildflowers. Including baby's breath and lupines.

4) A gruesome Medieval print, of either those gory barber-surgeons, or a church/cottage hospital filled with stained glass windows, praying patients, and nuns carrying extravagant bowls of fruit for the malnourished inmates.
5) And I know they've been done to death, but I'd love to see even more vampire prints, especially if they draw inspiration from Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles - I just love Lestat and Claudia!
