To my horror I've seen many Lolitas "bash" on newer ones just because they don't know the ways.
I dare not say what happened at a convention, but i saw another lolita get slapped because she miss took Gothic Lolita as Kuro Lolita. And that lolita my dear roses was I. But this incident was a few years back.
Now do you think that we should have appropriate manners and act as we dress?
