It's a 'Buffy' reunion on 'Supernatural'

"Supernatural" has had a rabid following on the CW for seven seasons now. Add the equally rabid following of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" into the mix, and there just might be a number of new viewers to Friday night's episode.

"Buffy" actors James Marsters and Charisma Carpenter are playing a married couple in the episode, and fans like Amanda (a.k.a. "Gaelicspirit") who recaps "Supernatural" on Whedonverse.net can't wait to watch.

Lolita fashion finds a niche in the U.S.

Lolita fashion finds a niche in the U.S.

San Francisco will see an exciting new addition to its fashion boutiques this fall with the addition of a line of clothing from Japanese designer h.NAOTO.

NEW PEOPLE, San Francisco's premiere destination for all things Japanese, has just hosted an event to celebrate the debut of the fashion line, which was previously only available for purchase in Japan.

Many of h.NAOTO's designs fall into the category of "gothic lolita," which is a term that may be commonplace in Japan, but is still considered a niche in the United States.

You may not be sure what you are looking at if you spot a woman wearing doll-like clothing, highly detailed accessories such as patterned stockings or ruffled cuffs, small hats, and long curled, flowing hair. Does she carry a small purse with handles? Does her clothing seem as if it's come from another century?

You've seen your first Lolita. FULL POST
