You say ero but all I can see is just gothic lolita in a different way from the more lolita-esque silhouette, like gothic aristocrates are. There is a reason why you hardly see any sweeter attempts at this style.
For me ero never really existed, you can wear it as a flashy version of lolita to a club or whatever, maybe we should name it club lolita then?
If you wear it on the streets it just looks too costumey.
If you want to make it happen try to dig out old bibles, look at the ads from Excentrique, Antique Beast, Atelier Pierrot, Triple Fortune and such and copy that but wouldn´t that be oldschool too?
I think what most people believe that ero is is a corset, cage skirt, fishnets, high heels and platforms. To me it is just simple gothic.
We really should stop labeling and to categorise everything which slightly wanders off the line or at least give me my granny lolita style.
What happened with bittersweet?
