It has come to my attention that an often-referenced "ita/cosplayer" in anime is more accurate than previously known. I found this pretty cool :)
Kuroneko (Ruri Gokou) from OreImo was mentioned a month or so back as an example of how Lolita is incorrectly portrayed on more recent animes. After some digging on hellolace, however, I found an eerie similarity...
Her outfit, with exceptions around the neckline, matches up pretty well to Victorian Maiden's Cross Shantung Double Skirt and other pieces. (http://hellolace.net/wardrobe/victorian-maiden/type/skirt/item/8/
The show does refer to her more as the cosplayer/"goth loli" girl than treating Lolita like a non-costume fashion, but I was surprised to see that her outfit was more directly inspired by real brand pieces.
