Gothic & Lolita in the Wall Street Journal

          On Friday, March 9, 2007, the Wall Street Journal ran an article in their Weekend Journal section entitled "Land of the Rising Karaoke Hot Tub," which talks about various trends in Japan. My father saved the article for me because it contains a few references to gothic & lolita.

          This certainly isn't the best article ever written on the subject, but it also isn't the worst. I think that the picture they've chosen as a representation of gothic & lolita was a very bad choice, and they do seem to lump lolita in with cosplay, but they don't equate the style with anything scandalous--mostly because that might be too much for the general readers of the Wall Street Journal. n_~

          I thought everyone else might enjoy browsing through it, so I've scanned that particular article. n_n The images are fairly large that way they can be read without too much distress, but if you have your screen set to a very large resolution you will probably need to zoom in. (If for any reason you receive an error message, just hit refresh and it should load.)
