Teenage kids having a bit of harmless and playful fun with self expression. It's universal.

I notice the boy behind her has on a pair of red, white and blue deck shoes and a pink shirt - very 1985!

Some of us will never grow up.

And some of you will never be able to replace your bitter judgments with a generous spirit.

Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth

It's a style that expresses attractiveness of an innocent and diabolic girl.

More Goldilocks than Lolita.

The Japanese archipelago is sinking beneath a tsunami of giggling narcissism.

She has good taste. But the handbag should match her outfit. Other than that I give her five stars!

I've seen worse ones! Especially in the US.

How did the photographer manage to take a photo that caused this person look like a two-dimensional cardboard cut out?

I thought it was just me but her head seems to be a) too big for her body and b) somehow disconnected from her body. Apart from that it's nothing different than can be seen in Akiba every day.

I thought the same, I couldn't believe she was real.

How classic and telling is it that the lens make her out to be a typical signboard of culture gone wrong?

These kids sometime makes me think about the future young generation here!

each to their own, just don't talk to me.

I see no contribution to Japanese society from this generation who has nothing better to do. People like this is a liability.

In any case, it's a very beautiful picture...

I love the 2D look!

I give her points for creativity but don't understand why this is called the Lolita look. I've read Lolita, twice, and she dressed nothing like this. This is more of a Little Bo Peep meets Tim Burton look to me.
