Difference Between Lolita Cosplay and LOLITA

What is the difference between LOLITA COSPLAY and LOLITA ?

Mostly gaming or anime characters who dress like a real lolita lolita NOT included ( example : Rozen Maiden , etc ) . Only the design of the character costumes are lolita - inspired . Likewise, the cosplay of the character is NOT included in the category of lolita , but cosplay . There is no exception in this regard.

But there is also a manga character who is telling about the life of a lolita in a fashion context , namely Kamikaze Girls ( there is a live adaptation of the action with the title Shimotsuma Monogatari ) . The main character is pure lolita ( even the Japanese lolita brand , Baby the Stars Shine Bright is also covered in the manga ) , and it tells the story of the life of a girl who likes to lolita fashion , not just " similar character costume lolita ".


Cosplay is when we dress into other characters ( fictional ) , while in lolita we do not become anyone . We're just being ourselves in her lolita clothes . Therefore lolita NOT costume , or cosplay , or cosplay original characters. Lolita is a fashion , which means also includes a lifestyle . Not just wearing unique and stylish Japanese event to be a certain character .


  1. I think this is the first top 10 list I’ve ever seen that got it right. Yes, I’ve owned every pedal on the list. And these are not my personal top 10 favorites, but historically it’s hard to argue. Except if these are in order the Whammy should be down towards the bottom. You can’t place it above the Wah. That’s just crazy.frip | kogama 3 | friv 2 | kogama 2
