Grammar-Lolita

I suppose this is a rather obscure question, but I've been wondering for a while, and now that I am writing a paper that references my involvement in this subculture, I need to know: Do you believe that the term "lolita" needs to be capitalized? I realize that the name "Lolita," as a proper noun, requires capitalization, but what about the word as a term describing this fashion? Should it be capitalized simply because it came from the name, or should it be left lower-case because it is not a proper noun? Please let me know your opinion: since, as lolitas, we are the only experts on lolita fashion, I think that was have the right to determine our grammar.

(As you can see, I'm leaning toward lower-case.)
