[-] What it is? [-]

It is a fashion style and subculture which originated in Japan, largely inspired by Victorian children's clothing and the elaborate costumes of the Rococo period. Other influences include the western gothic and punk fashions.
Skirts are typically knee length and are worn with a panier or petticoat to add volume. Typically paired with either a frilly, ruffled, or lace-trimmed Victorian blouse, often with Peter Pan or sailor collars, or a lacey 'cutsew'. Over the knee socks, knee socks or stockings are extremely popular, especially printed with roses or crowns or topped with lace. Footwear is typically cute, child-like shoes such as Mary Janes. Lace-trimmed headdresses, mini-top hats worn to one side, and intricate old-fashioned jewelry are some favored accessories.

[-] Styles [-]

[-] Behavior [-]

[+] There are no “rules” on how to behaving for a Lolita [+]

[+] Generally a good thing to be a polite person, especially if you are going to be out in public all dressed up. People will be taking notice of you in your Lolita clothes, it’s a good policy to just be generally well-mannered [+]

[+] If someone is bothering you about your fashion choices, tell them politely and firmly to leave you alone. If they don't get the message, keep in mind that you have a right to enjoy yourself in public without being harassed, especially if you are minding your own business and not being deliberately offensive to others. You should contact the staff/security/police in the area and remind them of this fact. [+]
