Now, for me this class is a bit of a way off in the future, but every professor I've had has warned me you can't just walk into Documentary without a subject chosen already. You'll be doomed to fail. Best thing is to start thinking about a subject now.
I know I want to do a documentary on Lolita. It's really the one thing I'm passionate about, but the problem is, I think it's too broad of a subject, and I need to find either find a main subject to focus on, or find main points I want to hit within the fashion. I have a few ideas in mind, but since Lolita fashion is so community based, I'd actually like to see what you guys and gals come up with.
Try to keep in mind I'll be aiming this not so much at Lolitas, but at my professors and classmates who are not familiar with the fashion. So try to think of things that are interesting and understandable to "outsiders" but relevant to us. (Example: The replica debate might be a little boring/too deep for some people just wanting to know why we wear frilly dresses, but mentioning that brand is important in the fashion would be an interesting tidbit.)
