GOTHIC LOLITA VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE.

It’s one thing to read about Gothic Lolita and look at fashion photos – and quite another to see it in action. Thank goodness we have YouTube. A search for “Gothic Lolita” turns up several clips from Japanese, Dutch, Austrian, and German news shows (along with the usual mish-mash of fan slideshows set to incongruous soundtracks). Here are my favorite two videos, which originated from Japanese television. You get to see Goth Lolis posing for street photos, rocking out at Visual Kei concerts, and freaking out over pretty dresses. Best part? When Moi-même-Moitié designer/musician Mana appears (first video at 3:00) and hypnotizes the news crew with his languorous come-hither arm movements. Or something.

Happy Halloween!
