"BEAUTY AND MONSTER" GOTHIC LOLITA EVENT

Feb 5, 2004


I have been to 6 or so Gothic Loli events, but this one was the best ever. The crowd really danced a lot, the costumes were boss, people liked having their picture taken, and even the bands were really entertaining. Goth lolis do not, as a rule, like bands. They prefer live entertainment with more theater and costumes, such as fashion shows or short plays. Also, apparently, they hate rehearsing.

First there was the “PETIT PETIT ALICE” fashion show. This is pretty amazing because one college student made all the costumes her damn self.

After that, was PHANTASMAGORIA FAIRY TALES. The funniest thing about this one was, the singer was trying to be goth but looked like fucking Stevie Knicks. I had to resist the urge to request “Tusk.” Their songs were good, but most of the time they deliberately did not sing. One person would read out of a “fairy tale book,” while the other performed really awful charades. If there is one thing worse than a bad band, it is a band that COULD be good and doesn’t want to.

After that was SELIA, who ? besides being one of the most stunning, gorgeous, realistic dragqueens I have seen ? is also a fully licensed and bonded counter-tenor who belts out crazy opera stuff. It is not bombastic like Wagner (or Klaus Nomi for that matter). . . more like opera-lounge, backed by live chamber music. If I was him/her I would take it in a bit more of a chantuse-y direction, all interacting with the audience and ad-libbing and stuff, but she is too classy and aloof for that.

The DJs managed to somehow not suck. I danced so much I had to run to the bathroom 3 times to wipe the sweat off. I was sopping like Jaques Cousteau.

The other weird thing about this event, is . . . well. . . how do I put it. . .I have gone to 6 of these Gothic Lolita events. But I never thought of the Lolis as people. They portray themselves as dolls, so I figured, “OK, fine, guys. You are dolls. Whatevers.” But for some reason in the middle of this live, I started looking around and acutally SEEING them for the first time. I was like. . . “WAIT a minute. . . they are not dolls, they are PEOPLE. Specifically, young female people. I am totally surrounded by young japanese girls, who have that whachamacallit, the thing with the– oh yeah, they have VAGINAS.” So I was super horny for like 3 seconds until the other shoe dropped ; “Whoa, they must have farts, too! And zits and Lolita boogers and Lolita athlete’s foot and weird bloody napkins with wormies in them.” And after that I was not horny anymore but I was still pretty amazed.
