View Full Version : Anime Expo Lolita Contest, anyone?
A friend sent me a link to this contest that is going down at Anime Expo 2003 this summer.... http://www.geocities.com/classy_cosplay/lolita.html
Anyone heard and/or planning on entering? I'm not very cute, but I may try for the gothic lolita :) I'd love to see some competition...
Wow, is this for real? Sounds awesome! I really want to enter. Out of all the categories, I think I'd try for best Victorian Doll. I was sort of iffy on planning to attend AX, but this makes me want to go...

Can someone explain what Lolita really is? It's just j-rocky cosplay but not... no that doesn't make sense... x_x*

FlameSniperRei: to me it's just a way of victorian dress. But to me I like to do the more Cute side of lolita.
Can anyone get the form to show? I don't see it.

Lolita comes from a book called "Lolita." The lolita complex or as the Japanese say "lolicon" is when older males like girls around the ages of 12-13 ~____~
It's also a style of dress where girls try to look like 12-13 year olds. Mana is an elegant gothic lolita, which is a type who dress up in more gothic, yet girlish clothes.
Only the japanese :P
lolita fashion I guess stems from the urge to look more or less like a doll... usually with lace, petticoats, knee length poofy skirts, collars, headpieces, "chinadoll" ivory skin, pink cheeks... gothic lolita is all that, but black :) Chii from Chobits is a good lolita example, while mana (as mentioned) is a good example of EGL or elegant gothic lolita... as I think was more or less said.

I wish I could afford to to to AX, I'd love to enter that contest but being Canadian, going down to AX would costume me an arm and a leg :(

I'm totally entering! ^o^
I don't have any lolita-ish outfits, so I'm think I'm gong to sew something for that category (plus I have lots of pink crinolin kicking around ^_^;)
And I totally understand what you mean Minakolabelle! AX is my yearly huge money spending spree ^^;;
