Browsing through Hulu, the front page hit me with this snippit about "Gothic Lolitas" on a channel called Best of the Rest (the specific show being Dressed for Action, Part 7). It has gems that include our inspiration being trying to imitate anime characters and Power Ranger villains, but has rather surprising twists of awesome like interviewing actual Japanese lolitas about why they wear/like lolita. It heavily spotlights Takuya Angel complete with an interview of the head designer, Takuya Sawada. Basically they mistakenly lump everything in Harajuku into lolita fashion, but it's neat to see the inside of clubs and stores in any case. Also note the hilarity of Japanese lolitas being catty, "I think it's okay to dress up as Goth if the person is handsome or beautiful. But if not, I find it a bit weird." LOL.
