Gothic & Lolita girls in Little Tokyo

Gothic & Lolita is a fashion sub-culture from Japan where girls wear colorful dresses inspired by the era of European aristocrats. It is quite common to spot GosuLoli girls in Harajuku, Tokyo's youth district, but today, American Gothic & Lolita girls came to Kinokuniya bookstore in Weller Court for the launch party of the 2nd edition of the Gothic & Lolita Bible. The magazine is originally published in Japanese, but starting this year, Tokyopop makes a version in English for American fans of the fashion sub-culture. With the growing popularity of Japanese pop culture, a lot of non-Japanese shop at Kinokuniya to buy anime, manga, Japanese fashion magazines, Japanese pop music CDs and DVDs of Japanese films. Here are some pics of the party:
