Gothic Lolita, sometimes shortened to GothLoli (ゴスロリ gosu rori), is a combination of the Gothic and Lolita fashion and fashion in the late 1990s in Harajuku.
Gothic Lolita fashion is characterized by darker make-up and clothing. Red lipstick and smokey or neatly defined eyes, created using black eyeliner, are typical styles,
although as with all Lolita sub-styles the look remains fairly natural. Though Gothic make-up has been associated with a white-powdered face, this is usually considered
poor taste within Lolita fashion circles.
There are two types of Gothic Lolitas: the traditional one that has come to symbolize the style as whole, and the one with visible gothic influences.
The traditional Gothic Lolita wears plain black clothing with white lace. The secondary type is less 'cute', and has more influences from Western Goth fashion.
Motifs such as crosses, bats, coffins are common. The clothing also breaks out from purely black, revealing colors such as wine, royal blue, deep plum, white, silver and
gold (the latter two are usually used to accent prementioned colours).
Elegant Gothic Lolita (EGL) and its masculine equivalent elegant Gothic aristocrat (EGA) are sub-styles of Gothic Lolita and of aristocrat fashion, championed by the Visual Kei rock
musician Mana with his fashion label Moi-même-Moitié, and influenced by steampunk fashion.
