Lolita in your language!

I realize that this may seem strange, but as I am a lolita and a huge linguistics nerd, please bear with me. > u>;; I'm really curious about what different things that we use in lolita are called in different languages. For instance, what do you call a skirt? A wig? Which words do we all use, and which ones are different? Also, for those whose languages have it, is the word lolita masculine, lolita or neutral? 

Follow the cut for more!






I'd like to know the following words, plus any that you all can think of. C: This is mostly for non-English speakers, but if you speak English and just have another way of calling something, please add it! Even if it's just a funny word you've made up for something. Here are some things I can think of to name right off the bat:





Masculine, Feminine or Neutral?:
Skirt:
Dress:
Jumperskirt:
Shoes: 
Platform Shoes:
Wig:
Hair:
Curls:
Bangs:
Brand Name:

Petticoat:
Necklace:
Bracelet:
Earings:
Make-Up:
False Eyelashes:

Japanese Fashion:

Okay, those are all that I can think of right now, but there could certainly be more added, so throw in ideas! Anything you think is related to lolita can go up. :D
Anything interesting in your language that have to do with lolita are also welcome. 

And don't be shy, I want to see it in any language possible! There are loli's all over, and we should acknowledge that. :D

As a bonus question: How well does lolita fit in with your culture/where you live?
For instance, I live in America, but when I visited Germany, I got the feeling that lolita would be a tiny bit less out of place there. 
Also, is the clothing really different than your culture's traditional clothing?
