More Lolita on GLEE?

So, I was watching Glee tonight and this is what I saw:

Baby_got_back_without_tags2

The girl in pink looks like she's wearing lolita.  The shoes, socks, skirt/dress, gloves and cardigan all look very Lolita but the hair and hat don't.

Here's the video of the song she appears in:



Thoughts on this?

It's pretty cool in a way, it would be interesting to know if she dresses herself or if someone in wardrobe dressed her. A few elements just seem, i don't know ...off? so to speak; like they tried to tone the look down when they should have just gone uber casual or all the way with it. :/ -shrugs-
Anyway it will be interesting to see what happens and if we keep seeing more in future episodes.

One hell of an interesting song choice to say the least. :p

It did feel like someone not really familiar with lolita dressed her, because of some of the things (like the hair and hat) and how my friend also pointed out that her petti is showing a little bit. But I think it'll be interesting to see if she shows up in more episodes wearing lolita again. I think it would be great!

I thought the song was interesting too, lol. It took me a moment to recognize what it was.

I thought she looked cute. I find it interesting that lolita is included in the losers' club.

well if you think about it, lolita is an outrageous fashion and anyone who wears it is usually considered strange/weird, at least in high school. so it makes sense to me that she would be in the club of "cast-offs".

I don't like GLEE and this song personally, but I love her coordinate, and this includes the hat. Sure, it's not 100% Lolita, but there are a lot of coordinates nowdays that are not 100% Lolita (and that's why there are communities like daily à la mode).
What disturbed me the most is the tulle (?) that peeks out of the dress, but maybe it's part of it. I tried to identify the dress, but couldn't. If somebody knows about it, please let me know !
If she appears in other episodes (which is likely to be the case since it looks like she will be the-asian-with-the-cute-and-weird-style-of-the-show), let us know too please ^-^ !

I was wondering if it's this Bodyline print, which would be pretty apt as it features music notes: http://www.bodyline.co.jp/bodyline/showProduct2.asp?id=2975&pageNumber=6&pageStop=stop_1&noSubType=N

lol unrelated but it makes me really mad that they ripped of Jon Coulton like that.
25th-Jan-2013 04:19 pm (UTC)
Yeah, everyone's been really mad about that. At least give credit or ask him if they can use his version.

Here's another outfit shot that I found interesting.

The girl in the green(ish) and black dress?
25th-Jan-2013 01:36 pm (UTC)
I noticed that girl right away since I've got the same print in the same color as hers. It was so cool. (Even cooler as my Lolita wardrobe consists only of two jumper skirts and a skirt, so finding someone wearing the same ones on television is really slim.)

Just about made my night. :)

(I actually really liked the hat. It thought it looked cute!)
25th-Jan-2013 04:20 pm (UTC)
That's great that it was a JSK you had! I thought it was very cute. I'm just not really a fan of hats like that normally.
25th-Jan-2013 01:36 pm (UTC)
She is wearing Bodyline Music note skirt :)
Very cute coord btw
25th-Jan-2013 02:47 pm (UTC)
saw "baby got back", got super excited thinking it was the Sir Mix-A-Lot version, and now i'm super disappointed because what the hell was that? WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT, GLEE? this is why i don't watch this show anymore. but my all-lolita rendition can happen yet!

and that hat is hilarious. it's like she's newsie lolita.
25th-Jan-2013 03:04 pm (UTC)
That was my response to that song, I nearly fell asleep. So effing horrible. :(

25th-Jan-2013 03:04 pm (UTC)
I didn't think the petticoat would bug me as much as it did, but OH MAN watching that video, it stood out like a sore thumb.
25th-Jan-2013 04:23 pm (UTC)
It becomes really obvious the longer the song goes on.
25th-Jan-2013 03:24 pm (UTC)
Oh hey, it's the arrangement they completely ripped off from Jonathan Coulton. Adding a lolita isn't going to make me forgive you, Glee >:T
25th-Jan-2013 09:57 pm (UTC)
<3 thank you for saying this.

Stopped watching glee when Quinn and Mercedes left. Really only watched the episode when they came back this season.
25th-Jan-2013 04:24 pm (UTC)
I really miss Mercedes and Quinn too. :(
25th-Jan-2013 04:10 pm (UTC)
I thought the coord was super cute. The hat was an interesting touch!
25th-Jan-2013 04:30 pm (UTC)
it's cute, but it just feels so out of place. probably because she's wearing pink and everyone else is in darker colors.
25th-Jan-2013 09:55 pm (UTC)
Not a huge fan of Glee for a variety of reasons, but I remember in the Halloween episode of Parks and Rec I'm like 80% sure I saw a lolita. I couldn't see much more than her bag and her skirt in the shot, but it's still nice to see it. :)

Any girls here who have done any acting work (extras or not) who've worn lolita for it?
26th-Jan-2013 05:42 am (UTC)
That is really neat! I'll have to look it up online to see.

I want to know as well. We need more good portrayals of us in the media.
26th-Jan-2013 01:59 am (UTC)
I thought it was nice they threw in a random lolita to show how different and unique a lot of people in NY are. I also think that while not 100% lolita, it was still a lot more lolita than the last time they had a "lolita" on glee that everyone on here flailed about. I wouldn't wear that coord, but I personally liked seeing the hat used that way. I kind of feel like as long as you have something on your head, it's fine. The blouse wasn't zomg super lolita either but I definitely think it worked. I mean, we can't expect a mainstream TV show to know everything about the fashion and do it completely right every single time.
26th-Jan-2013 05:43 am (UTC)
These were basically my thoughts about it. :) I just like seeing good portrayals of it showing up in the media.
26th-Jan-2013 03:23 am (UTC)
I really don't like this version of the song, but that's another issue altogether.

Other than that, everything from the shoulders down is great except for the sticking-out petticoat and the gloves in my opinion, but otherwise all I can hear is Carlotta from Phantom screeching: "And I HATE my hat!"
26th-Jan-2013 05:32 am (UTC)
I don't like this version either.

I think everything from the shoulders down is cute too, except that petti! Just pull it up a little bit!
26th-Jan-2013 06:40 am (UTC)
Wow, that's an actual lolita skirt! They really got it right!
(It's a shame Glee ripped off this version of Baby Got Back, though...)
27th-Jan-2013 04:31 am (UTC)
Yep! I hope she shows up in future episodes.
(Yeah, I wish they had at least asked/credited or done their own rendition)
26th-Jan-2013 11:28 am (UTC)
Definitely lolita, and as a sweet cord its pretty cute and looks nice on her :) but since I didn't see Lolita before in Glee -
I cant help but think it was purposely used for this song "big butts" topic... And that makes me kinda mad, that once they show a Lolita - it's in this context of 'big butts'.
Maybe that's all they see in the fashion - flaring big butts on thin looking Asian girls (since they showed it on that actress)
or maybe I'm wrong and we'll see this character in more Loli cloths. I hope I'm wrong...
27th-Jan-2013 04:32 am (UTC)
I hope you're wrong too and that she turns out to be an actual Lolita. I think it would be really neat to have that, especially on a popular show like Glee. So, I'll definitely be on the lookout for her in future episodes.
27th-Jan-2013 08:48 pm (UTC)
I really hope the character wears lolita all the time (it looks like she will be an actual character, since it looks like Kurt's joining that group).
I liked her coord a lot! I don't think her hair was un-lolita or whatever. It's just not OTT, that doesn't make it wrong.

Also, the thing about the song... it's one of those things that used to be standard practice, but it's becoming increasingly hard to get away with because of how well information spreads on the internet. Also, people (not here) who are blaming the actors for that are stupid. Why would you expect the actors to know (and be responsible for) what the network's legal team does?

Also... British accent guy -> Tumblr bait.
28th-Jan-2013 05:04 am (UTC)
I hope she wears it all the time too. I didn't mind her hair that much. I just am not a fan of the hat lol.

People are blaming the actors? Seriously? Wow... They're not the ones who write the script or pick the songs. That's what the writers do, so if anything, blame the writers.
