Gothic & Lolita BibleGothic & Lolita BibleGothic & Lolita Bible

Welcome to the world of the Gothic & Lolita Bible... where japanese girls frolic in victorian garb... shop for freakin parasols... and the latest in goth ware.  What the f*ck?  K.  um.   This is rad... but.. are you serious?... Oh wait you are... crap.

I remember the first time I saw Japanese girls dressed as "Lolita's"... I was in Hawaii.. North Shore.... at a rest area... and these two girls.. dressed in matching black frilly dresses... little black lace gloves... little black hats... shoulder length black hair.. with matching black frilly parasols spinning gently in the air....

They just stood blankly... watching me... watching them... I thought it might be an oddity.. ya know.. cuz like they maybe dressed up for their vacation... xcept they thought they were visiting another time... I should have told em there was no Victorian era for Hawaii.

But I didn't.. I thought they looked cute... even though I know they were roasting in that Hawaiian sun.

 

these girls will eat your soul. The Bi-Annual Gothic and Lolita Bible is a guide for how to be... you guessed it.. a Gothic Lolita.

What a Gothic Lolita is... is a victorian styled... Anne Rice lovin... wish you were surrounded by vampires  that might suck your blood and make you immortal... goth.  A goth with a lot of money to spend... cuz this shit aint cheap.

Like many of the Japanese clothing magazines... its mainly a shopping catalog of what's hot in goth clothing...  and where to find it... There are a ton of spreads of the newest designer wear..

 

milky softyikes.  this is just wrongAnd for some reason this vampirific model to the left is in every issue... He... Mana from the band Malice Mizer (which broke up in 2001)... must be the top of what it is to be a Lolita goth... so milky...

But yeah.... some really scary shit is in these books... like little girls that look exactly like that little girl from "Interview with a Vampire"...  (maybe not exactly)... curly haired Shirley Temple-alikes that look like little Madame Alexander dolls... freaky... don't touch.. they will bite.

 

There are also sewing patterns included for DIY goth fashion... how to make cool frilly cut up clothes out of other cool frilly clothes... where to stick the clothes pin to look punk... and how to accessorize darkwave style.

Seriously... I actually dig the DIY clothing better than the store bought stuff shown in the mag... there is some real creativity going into what materials are being used and how... I wish kids here tried as hard as these Japanese Vampire kids.

 

Are we trying too hard?Marilyn Manson's new fashion line available at finer boutiques..And my fave thing in the Gothic & Lolita bible... are the awesome street snaps... just like Fruits... of just normal everyday gothic vampires wandering the streets...  shamefully these are all daytime pictures... don't they know they'll tan??... or burn?...  c'mon... they're spose to be vampires right?   get it together...

I joke... but its cool to see how the real kids wear the gear.  Then there are the even weirder Japanese Vampires... the kind that are deep into cosplay.

 

Morrigan never looked cuter...this really isn't mine.Hello... My name is Morrigan.. the girl from the video game Dark Stalkers... look I can fly... flap flap...

Sure you can... and I'm freakin Captain Harlock....

hey wait...  that sounds cool... I never get to wear my costume anymore.. shit... some girl wants to dress up like a video game vampire bat with magical powers and party... i'm down... what else you got kinky vampire girl.... let's rock...

 

so cute... so deadly.Um.. sorry... So yeah... odd stuff...

I mean is this Anne Rice's vision of what goth should be?... cuz it's some serious freak out shit.  I mean.. c'mon... Vampires.. cool.. Goth kids... cool... Japanese goth kids... cool... Japanese Vampires... cool... Fox spirits... cool...but super freak out Victorian Vampires roaming Shinjuku... um.. not so cool.

to quote strongbad "uhhh.. crap, man"are Japanese Vampires taking over Japan's youth?... Where is the next trend to save us?...   And where is Gojira to stomp some vampire ass... wait... that could be the next Godzilla flick... Godzilla vs. the space vampires... yeah I said space... cuz like just regular Japanese vampires would kinda blow...
