Luckily, there have been a good number of Lolita documentaries cropping up on Youtube that give a very good representation of the fashion and the people involved.
Sugar Coated tells the story of a group of LA Lolitas and their ascent into a fashion subculture that makes them feel brave, comfortable, safe, and happy. This one probably have the best segment relating to bro-litas I've ever seen. If you haven't watched it yet, I really suggest you do!
This one is more amateurish and made for a school project, but their intentions are good. This shows the power of Youtube and how easily it is today to get your message out to a lot of different groups of people.
Lolita in Translation came out a few years ago and is pretty well-known by now, but also a good one to view.
There are a lot of other Youtube documentaries up in various languages as well - you're welcome to search them out. I really enjoyed the Quebec Lolita group's segment.
This article from the Portland Press Herald still makes mention of the baby-doll look and calls them costumes (while also making other mistakes about the style) but still manages to represent it in a favorable light.
Huffington Post also did an article about Lolita fashion making it's way to Mexico, and I would love to read or hear more about the Lolita movement in other parts of the world. South America - I'm looking at you now!
