How to Create a Boy Gothic Lolita Oufit


Gothic lolita is a form of Japanese fashion. It focuses on Victorian fashion and elements of the 19th century. What is the male version of Gothic Lolita? Known as boy loli or Kodona (Japanese "Dandy" or "Prince"), this style is quite rare to see, perhaps because most girls into Gothic Lolita are more interested in wearing dresses, and few men feel comfortable wearing something labeled as "Dandy". More common than not, Kodonas are girls, although one will occasionally see a male Kodona, sometimes in tow with his Lolita (or Lolitas; Princes are much in demand).
