Why would some of the people like to wear Lolita outfits when they go out? Some of them may also wear cosplay costumes. This is because of the wide spread of Japanese Culture.
People in Hong Kong and Taiwan are now following the fashion in Japan. The idea of wearing Lolita or Punk outfits and other cosplay costumes inspires people in Hong Kong and Taiwan. The article also implies that the influence of Otaku culture from Japan.
People in Japan love animation characters so they dress like the characters they like. Some of them even lock themselves at home, watching cartoons or comics and leave the real world behind. These people are called Otaku.
It is also because the movie showed few years ago, which is about a girl who likes Lolita and chase for her dream. The movie inspires girls who love Lolita that they are not in the wrong if they wear Lolita outfits.
People wear Lolita outfits because of the influence of Japan culture but some of them do not agree. As Lolita fans wear Lolita outfits when they go out, citizens may think they are different and weired. Some of the people on Internet are against to these Lolita lovers.
However, people who wear Lolita outfits may just want to protect themselves from the real world. They may face many stress and obstacles so they just want to live in their own world.
I think everyone should have their own interest and no one should against them if there is no harm. I think this culture is very creative because every Lolita dress is unique.
