what is it ?

Gothic Lolita or "GothLoli" (ゴスロリ, gosurori?, sometimes "Loli-Goth") has two definitions. The term "Gothic and Lolita" is used by the Japanese to describe a sub-culture of teenagers who wear a wide range of fashions. It is used by English language sources mainly to describe a specific subset of Lolita fashion.

Lolita fashion draws much of its inspiration from Rococo, Victorian-style and Edwardian fashion and often aims to imitate the look of Victorian children or porcelain dolls. Gothic Lolita applies the aesthetics of Gothic fashion to the childlike, pretty Lolita fashion. The word Gothloli comes, quite naturally, from a combination of Lolita and Gothic fashion.[1]

Gothic Lolita is the best-known of the various "Lolita" looks. Other categories include "Classic Lolita", which is often more mature-looking and contains more muted colors and floral prints and "Sweet Lolita" which is identified by childish pastel colors and cute prints.

Gothic Lolita style is usually a combination of black and white, often black with white lace and typically decorated with ribbons and lace trims. Skirts are knee length and may have a crinoline or petticoat to add volume. As in mainstream Japanese fashion, over-knee socks or stockings are popular. White or black tights are also common. Boots, rockinghorse shoes, or child-like shoes such as Mary Janes complete the look. Frilly, ruffled or lace-trimmed Victorian blouses are also popular with Gothic Lolitas and designs are usually modest, sometimes with long lace-capped sleeves and/or high-necked blouses.

Some additions may include mini top hats, parasols, and lace headdresses, which resemble wide, elegantly decorated headbands. Other popular Lolita headgear are ribbons, lace or bows, an alice band with a bow or sometimes even a bonnet. Hair is sometimes curled, or a curled wig is worn to complete the porcelain doll look. Blonde and black are the most popular hair colors, though as the fashion continues to develop, other colors (such as brown and red) are increasing in popularity.

Lolita outfits may be accessorized with other props like handbags, small backpacks and purses, sometimes in the shape of bats, coffins, and crucifixes, as well as conspicuous pocket books, pocket watches, and hat boxes. Teddy bears and other stuffed animals are also common, and some brands make special "gothic" teddy bears out of black leather or PVC. Some Lolitas own Super Dollfie or other ball-jointed dolls and carry them when wearing the style, often going so far as to dress them to match.

Lolita is an amazing fashion style. I love it <3
Just coordinate it right =) The first two are really good. I can imagine the black dress on you =3
Don't wear it like Lil Mama does lol. Well, at least wear a proper top and not a sports bra like she did lmao.
Buying lolita is expensive though. Just in case you can't afford it, you can learn how to sew =)

Is it just me or is this group turning into a beauty group? XD Not that I have a problem with that.

It's awsome! But you have to look cute in the first place (look like a doll so cute x3) cuz else u end up like lil mama or worse Nothing personal lil mama,,... can someone pls tell her that style doesnt work for her? omg my eyes >_<
Problem is that nobody weares these kinda styles in the west and they all look at u like wtf are u wearing and they classify it as emo or somthing like that which usually isnt good lol. Even tough u dont care it still sux. Stupid narrow minded people in their nasty styles lol *cough*xP
