CUTE GOTHIC LOLITA AND PUNK CHILDREN ON JINGUBASHI BRIDGE IN HARAJUKU.
File this under awwwww. Three little girls – or are they living Gothic Lolita dolls? – hanging out with elder Goth Aristocrats on Jingubashi (Meiji Jingu Shrine) Bridge in Harajuku! Heart the oversized hair bows and black rose eyepatch.
Wednesday Addams and Emily the Strange may be loners, but our Tokyo Goth Loli children are surrounded by equally stylish playmates. The little girl (in the middle) could win anyone over with her smile. Her Wa Lolita dress reminds me of the Lacrima ones I wrote about.
Well aren’t you a cute widdle snotface? I’m amazed by the level of detail in the little punk’s outfit; note the locket choker and Union Jack on his scuffed boots. (Coming up: I’ll do a feature on Japanese punk boys.)
A Japanese Gothic Lolita version of the Addams Family. What do you think – would you dress up your kids to match your aesthetic? You know I’ve already put Basil in a bonnet…
Anything a parent does will traumatize their spawn anyway. If I ever have a (human) son, that will be my justification for styling his hair like Daigoro’s (above). He’s the son of samurai Ogami Itto from the manga/film series Lone Wolf and Cub. I re-watched my favorite of the films (Baby Cart at the River Styx) just yesterday… it’s 1970s camp and yet so very Goth… but I’d better stop rambling before this post reaches the floor!
