|Goth Loli Girls in Sacramento|
|Every detail, down to the smile, is considered.|
What is Goth Loli? Well, it's a Japanese street fashion -- part street theater and part costume party. "Loli" is short for "Lolita," and Goth or Gothic has the same implications that it does in US fashions. There are a wide range of young women in Japan who identify themselves as Lolitas or "gosururi" in Japanese.
The basic Lolita garb is part-Victorian china doll and part Gothic theater. Most Goth Lolis wear short, full-skirted dresses, thick tights, clunky shoes, and exaggerated hats. But there are many variations on the Lolita style including Sweet Lolita, Wa Lolita (using traditional Japanese clothing), and Oji-sama, a "boy style" worn by both genders.

My Sacramento Goth Lolis were out on a gorgeous Saturday shopping and having coffee together, and for just the briefest of moments I was transported to Harajuku and the fashion feast of Tokyo's streets.
