I was wondering what everyone thinks of Gothic Lolita fashion?
I know in the western Gothic community some of us really like it (myself included, I wear a good deal of kurololi (black lolita) or gothloli dresses) and know exactly what it is, some like it and aren't too sure what it is, exactly, some are indifferent and some detest it and find it silly in comparison to western Goth, maybe because it's seen as a fashion statement versus a lifestyle (ie, wearing the clothes, listening to the music, reading the literature)although there are certainly "lifestyle Lolitas" and Gothic Lolita lifestyle is much different from sweet, classic, etc).
Just wondering! Personally, I'm fond of old-school goth, romantic goth (what I usually refer to as Gothic Aristocrat), steampunk AND Gothic Lolita.
Oh dear, I hope this most made sense. I might be rambling a bit, I'm up to the eyeballs in poli sci homework.
