Lolita & Japanese Fashion Magazines

  I like Japanese fashion magazines and I really like having Gothic & Lolita Bibles for a few reasons.  I love fashion, I love Lolita, and I really like getting freebies.  I used to have a cute little shop that I would visit so I could buy the latest Cutie magazine and get the free goody that came with it.  I got a free purse, phone charm, mirror, hair tie, kitty bag, and other random fun things.  Now when I want any of the Japanese magazines I have to order them on-line but they cost so much new that I buy them used.  I got together most of them to share with you, take a peek.


This Cutie is a special one to me.  It is an older one from 2001 and it was given to me by a good friend from Japan when I was in community college.  

I really like KERA.  There are always ads for Baby and AP along with other brands.  It is nice to see their layouts and new prints.  They tend to be a bit more on the punk side which is just super fun to me.

Random Things
The egg magazine came from a friend in Japan who knows that I love Japanese fashion.  The Junie was also from the college friend in 2001.  Lastly, the two PHAIDON books that highlight street fashion and Lolita.

If any of you have read Paradise Kiss you will recognized Zipper as the magazine that Miwako's big sisters clothing brand  "Happy Berry" is in.

These are fun to look at, great for inspiration and ideas, and the pride of my collection (other than the old Cutie mag).

American Tokyopop Gothic & Lolita Bibles


  1. Wow, that's a cool collection! I only have the first american Gothic Lolita Bible and... that's all. :'D

  2. Wow, great collection! I think I might start getting some magazines, they seem like great inspiration :)

  3. I want to get some Gothic and Lolits Bibles, but they're so hard to find! TT
    I have quite a few Pinky's, but Pinky was discontined, which made me super sad. Now I want to check out things like Pichi Lemon, Popteen, and Seventeen! :3
    The best freebie I got was a little chocolate deco mirror! :D

  4. Great collection. Love the Gothic and Lolita Bible too. Wish there was a place where I could buy them, rather than order online.
