Chinese Lolita

I been doing research on Lolitas of China and Hong Kong but all I can do is provide you with resources and one day translate the Cantonese into English. I would have to go to Hong Kong and China to do the full blown research. I will be digging up stuff related to Lolitas in Taiwan. So use this post as a resource of information about Chinese Lolitas and anything related to Lolita in the respective countries. BTW it is a WHOLE lot of digging.

One more fun note. According to one of the actress, Charlene Choi, in Jackie Chan's movie Chinese title Rob-B-Hood, 寶貝計劃, actually had one of the characters dress in a black and white lolita outfit. (~_^) The only reason I realized this was that the actress stated in Cantonese that she dressed up in lolita on the Hong Kong version of the DVD special features disc.

*周杰倫公主病《杰威爾官方》Jay Chou "Princess Syndrome" Official MV
(Chinese) After listening to the song and noticing the title, I can see why the women are wearing lolita clothing: Jay Chou, who is a very famous pop singer from Taiwan and was in the Green Hornet movie, said "Princess" in Mandarin a few times during the video.
