I find these days a lot of inspiration comes from stuff my sister likes (even if not in direct relation). She buys Japanese fashion magazines, and it pretty much got me acquainted with Gothic Lolita. I actually find it cute, to be honest. Maybe because the Japanese girls dress more like drab porcelain dolls than any western notion of "goth" (for the most part). I find that fits Charlotte more anyway, considering she's hardly a "dark" character (heck, is anybody?), but closer to an unsettling weird. Like, Charlotte would fit more into Coraline than Nightmare Before Christmas, if you understand what I mean.
