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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

More Goldilocks than Lolita.

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

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

Some of us will never grow up.

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!
