Elegant Goth and Lolita

"GothLoli" ゴスロリ, gosurori



Info:
Hello PC! This is the new club dedicated to goth and lolita style here! If you dress like, or love to see people dress in this style, this is the place for you! This place is also for you if you haven't completely given up your chilidish ways, like still playing with dolls, and haveing tea parties...Then come here!

At first glance, the gosurori appear like their Western Goth counterparts, wearing dark and gloomy costumes with make-up to match in a fashion that originally derived from Europe in the Middle Ages.

But a closer look at the gosurori reveals they revel in the infantile, frequently carrying stuffed toys and using baby talk, which gives them their tag of Lolita, the word the Japanese have adopted from Vladimir Nabakov's novel of the same name to label anything childlike.

__________________________________________________
About Loli:
Gothic Lolita or "GothLoli" (ゴスロリ, gosurori: Gosurori is a contraction of the English Gothic and Lolita.) is a fashion somewhat rare, but very highly visible, among Japanese teenagers and young women. It emphasizes Victorian-style girl's clothing and often aims to imitate the look of Victorian porcelain dolls. Gothloli's name and origin is a combination of lolita fashion--appearing deliberately cute to the point of looking childish--and certain styles found within gothic fashion. The style started as a youth subculture sometime around 1997/1998 and became a well-established genre available in some Japanese department stores by around 2001. Some observers consider it a reaction to the "Kogal" aesthetic.

Variations of the Gothic Lolita look include "Classic Lolita" (more traditional, light-coloured and "girlish" clothing) and "Elegant Gothic Lolita" (EGL, which focuses upon the pastiche of upper class victorian fashion found in old horror films.). The male analog to this fashion is called "Elegant Gothic Aristocrat" (EGA) which shares EGL's emphasis on the Victorian era, though not on children's clothing. Gothic Lolita is also influenced by the imagery of more feminine Visual Kei (or "visual rock") bands. Visual Kei is a Japanese form of rock music defined by bands featuring performers in elaborate costumes but whose musical style varies.

Mana, the crossdressing former leader and guitarist of the Visual Kei band Malice Mizer, is widely credited for having popularised Gothic Lolita. He coined the terms Elegant Gothic Lolita (EGL) and Elegant Gothic Aristocrat (EGA) to describe the style of his own fashion label, Moi-mme-Moiti, which was founded in 1999 and quickly established itself as one of the most coveted brands of the Gothic Lolita scene.

Hi Bgt! You are the first person to join! This makes me so happy!

I had a teaparty last night! It was so much fun! It has been years since I had one, but I was babysitting a 10 and a 9 year-old, and they were playing with their teddy bears. So I brought a doll with me, and we had a tea party, but since none of us drank tea, we had chocolate milk.

Paired with Tiger-Chan, and it's not gonna change any time soon!
Deceived by my eyes and all I was told I should see
Opinions not mine, the person they taught me to be
One night in the dark, a vision of someone I knew
And in the darkness I saw, a voice say, I'm you.
Inside me a light was turned on Then I was alive

(v chorus v)
If you close your eyes your life, an empty truth revealed
Dreams you never lived, and scars never healed
In the darkness, light will take you to the other side
and find me waiting there you'll see, if you just close your eyes

Hearts uninspired, trapped inside somebody's dream
Too close to the fire, yet cold and numb with the pain
But the fever has broken, and the river has run to the sea
Washed to the ocean, and saved by a voice inside me.
Inside me a light was turned on Then I was alive
(chorus)
Never thought I would be here, so high in the air
This was my unanswered prayer
Defined by another, so much wasted time
Out of the darkness, each breath that I take will be mine
(chorus)
If you just close your eyes...

I didn't make that board, lol. Even though the board is not that good, it seems pretty popular for some reason...

Oh, Ryuki and NiNGi's Worst Nightmare, I added both of you to the member list!
