Lolita as a subculture

Why can't we be like this? I'm not saying "hug itas" (ew), but, where's the subculture aspect of lolita?
>The fashion started at underground music shows in tokyo, where people would dress in black, dance, and sing toghether
But our bands are either dead or only do shows in Japan. Plus, nowadays there is more music related to sweet styles than any other style. I don't know about you, but I can't fucking dance to meltia.
>Walking on the street, being with friends and improvising was a big part of lolita
If we walk on the street and happen to take a simple photo to share with friends, god forbid you. You can't get out unless ALL your pinks match, you stupid fuck. Don't even get me started with sitting on the ground. Not even in Japan people go out to hang out at harajuku anymore. Everything has to be a teaparty now. Everythin must be ott with big ass flowercrowns. We just can't go out to eat some ice cream anymore because we might dirt our dress.
>There's nothing left of a "feeling" of being a lolita
The corrupted girl. The creepy doll. The innocent maiden. I really don't know what to feel about this changing. For once, people are not pretending to be something that they aren't. But our clothes have just become clothes. Anyone can dress in them. Anyone can get the attention and become famous, even if they don't feel like their clothes are a second skin to their soul. So there are more and more girls who dress in lolita because it is flashy and girly and not because they feel 100% connected and related and like they can be themselves when wearing it.
Now some questions:
>What would you change about our subculture?
>What kind of events would you like to attend aside of tea parties?
>What's the feeling you get when wearing lolita, if any at all?
>What would you improve in our subculture in general?
>Comparing to the oldschool era, do you like where lolita is, and where do you think we are heading?
