Nana Kitade's Otakon Fashion Show in Shoujo Beat!

I recently recieved the latest issue of Shoujo Beat magazine. This month's covergirl is Nana Kitade, and one of the headlines reads "Rock the Gothic Lolita look!", so I eagerly flipped through it, wondering what the articles would be inside. The Nana Kitade interview is adorable, and they printed a small feature on her Otakon fashion show. I scanned the whole interview, so that all the girls who attended the fashion show can see if they're pictured or quoted...

On a less pleasant note, towards the back of the issue they featured this highly questionable "Do it Yourself: Sweet Lolita" article. I am really disappointed with it, especially because this issue is probably one of the biggest sources of exposure Lolita Fashion has ever had in America, and I hate to think of the girls who will attempt to emulate this look, thinking it's a good example of the style.
