Winter International Lolita Day 2017

Hello! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday! This past weekend was International Lolita Day! I experienced my first ILD earlier this year when I hosted a swap meet for my comm. ILD is held every year, twice a year on the first Saturday of July and December, so people from all over the world can decide when and how to spend the day celebrating.

For this December’s ILD, I hosted a meet-up to Rochester’s Public Market. The Public Market has been renovated a lot recently and it had been a few months since I had last visited. Thus, I was looking forward to going for this event! The vendors sold many cute vintage Christmas accessories, fresh Christmas trees, decorations, winter clothing, and other interesting items!

There was this cute carousel horse there! I wish I could have bought it!

We had a great turn-out! It was awesome seeing some people I haven’t seen since the recent tea party meet-up. My friend wore a sax dress to match with me! I thought everyone looked so adorable! We found a cute spot to take coordinate pictures, as well as the group picture.

After the group photo, we walked through the area once more, with lots of people stopping us to ask us about our outfits. I generally mention our “fashion club” and it was interesting having so many admirers. Before the event, I was a bit nervous because I hadn’t worn something so brightly pastel before. The positive reception really eased my nerves. We stumbled across a vendor who sold these amazingly fluffy earmuffs! Almost everyone bought a pair (or several) and we took a group photo. xD

Bobby and I did some very light shopping for vegetables from some of the farmers. I got some amazing sugar cookies and kettle corn! For accessories, I got a bow made entirely of metal, an interesting ring, and a pin with a sword. And of course, the earmuffs!

For my coordinate, I wore Angelic Pretty’s Harlequinade for the first time. I really love the pastel colorways of it and recently acquired the sax version. I thought it was a great opportunity to wear my new rosette from Ikemen Mode as well as a few other accessories I haven’t gotten to wear yet.

Being able to wear a fashion that fits my quirkiness, while also meeting so many awesome people has made the last few months so amazing. I can’t wait for the next ILD!

RuffleCon 2017 Part 2

Hello! Today is Part 2 of my RuffleCon 2017 series! A week later and I’m still tired from such a great weekend!

On Saturday, I went to the fashion shows of Ikemen Mode and The Bloody Tea Party. It was great seeing such amazing outfits! The witch bonnet is definitely a unique piece!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Ikemen Mode has easily jumped up my personal list of favorite EGL Brands. I was deeply impressed by the outfits I saw in the fashion show. They had a booth in the Marketplace so I made sure to stop buy and got to meet the designer Sheri! Ikemen Mode features Ouji and Aristocrat fashion pieces in a wide arrangement of sizes, highly desired considering that Japanese sizes tend to run smaller than European sizes. Additionally, ouji fashion made by major Japanese brands tend to be catered more towards women so the sizes often also reflect that.

Later in the day, I also ended up going to the Metamorphose temps de fille fashion show! The line was very long!

IMG_8565

I was really amazed by the amount of detail in some of the new dresses!

That night, there was a dance with a DJ! I had a blast and took a lot of photos!

Sunday went by very quickly. I went to a very interesting parlor magic panel in the morning and then spent the rest of the day in the Marketplace for some last minute purchases.

IMG_8703

 

Overall, I got a lot of stuff from the Marketplace and the Consignment shop. It was great seeing the Ikemen Mode booth up close. I didn’t have enough money at the time but I will definitely be buying some of their blouses and accessories in the future! I also got to buy a necklace from Tokimekiteikoku. I’ve loved and admired her jewelry from afar so it was great to get to buy something in person. Other things include a crown from Voodooodolly, a rosette from Miss Danger Shop, and other miscellaneous accessories.

I got the opportunity to wear more circus coordinates throughout the weekend! I tried picking two coordinates that would be easy to use similar accessories for to minimize packing. I like how they turned out~ More pictures will be on my coordinate page!

RuffleCon 2017 Part 1

Hello! This past weekend, I was at RuffleCon!

I’ve decided to break this event up into two separate parts. Part 1 will be on Friday and Part 2 will be on Saturday and Sunday!

RuffleCon is an alternative fashion convention hosted in Stamford, CT. It’s run for a few years but as this is my first year officially in Lolita fashion, this was my first year attending the con. The trip was a joint trip between the Rochester and Buffalo Lolita communities. Lauren, Cristina, and I traveled down to Stamford from Rochester by car. It was around a 7 hour trip! We made a joint hotel stay with some of the people from the Buffalo Lolita comm. Our hotel room was pretty nice and my Weekend Plus ticket came with food at the hotel buffet!

IMG_8498

Lunch!

On Friday morning, we waited in line for registration and consignment intake. They have a consignment room, in which people bring in Lolita items to sell. RuffleCon takes a 20% cut of whatever sells and people can browse a large room filled with clothes!

IMG_8501

IMG_8502

I made a few purchases in the consignment room! I bought a pretty blue headband. I also found Angelic Pretty’s Marionette Girl Skirt in the pink colorway! I have been looking at Marionette Girl sporadically over the last few months so it was exciting to find it here for only $30! Instant buy!

Throughout the day, I went to a few interesting panels. I went to a panel about resin crafting and another one about pattern sewing!

At night, I entered the annual Coordinate Contest. For a few months, I spent a lot of time planning a coordinate to match perfectly with the Alice and the Pirates Jesters of the Moon Hat I purchased earlier this year.

a0b78e63-bfdb-5074-a9c6-ea3822076335

The coordinate went through many changes and iterations, including two main dress changes. Once I got the main part of the coordinate planned out, I made a handmade scepter as well to match the hat! The scepter is made out of wood, ribbon, and glue. I hope to make a tutorial post about how I planned and constructed it soon!

IMG_8477

Ultimately, I didn’t end up placing in the contest but the reception to my coordinate was so overwhelmingly positive! It really made me feel like my hard work paid off in some regard at least ;v;

Accessories : Fanplusfriend (gloves)

 

After a long day of travelling, talking, and photo taking, my friends and I spent some time just hanging out and talking. We wrapped up the night with two more panels, including a hilarious improvised performance competition of reciting “Lolita Secrets,” and turned in for the night! It was definitely hard to want to take off my makeup, I liked it so much!

Halloween Party 2017 / ハロウィーンのパーティー2017

Hi there! Last weekend was so much fun! I got to host a Halloween Party for the Rochester Lolita community! As a potluck, guests brought a food item to share with everyone.

I already bought Angelic Pretty’s Horror Garden JSK months ago in preparation for Halloween. So, I thought about how we could make a couples’ coordinate. Ultimately, I ended up adding a brown blouse and getting matching tights with Bobby! This is the first coordinate I’ve worn the pigtails of my Dream Holic wig. I think our picture came out really well!

Halloween Shopping / ハロウィーンの買い物

Hello!  Starting now, I will begin translating my blog posts into Japanese. I’m planning on going back and translating my old posts from the beginning as well!

こんにちは!今日から、ブログを日本語に翻訳する。そして、最初の投稿からも日本語に翻訳するつもりだよ!

 

This past weekend, I went Halloween shopping with my friend Lauren! We’re hosting a Halloween potluck party for our local Rochester Lolita community!

先週の週末、友達ローレンさんとハロウィーンの買い物した!私達はロチェスターのロリータコミュニティーのためにパーティーをホストする。

In the car! / 車で!

I got a bunch of craft ribbon because I want to teach everyone how to make rosettes with these rosette makers I bought recently. I’m still struggling to make them myself but I’ll get better with practice. Lauren and I spent a lot of time looking for just the right type of material!

ロゼットメーカーでロゼットを作るのが教えたいから、たくさんのリボンを買った。作るのは難しいから、練習して上手になるよ。かんぺきなリボンを探していたので、ローレンさんと長い間をかけたよ!

I finally got to wear a skirt I got recently, Angelic Pretty’s Queen Trump skirt. It has a few damages so I’m hoping to get another pair of it in better condition! It’s definitely a gem of a skirt. I bought a few of the same series rings in a bundle! I have a brooch from SWIMMER and matching pin and bag of Kuro from Sentimental Circus. Overall, I’m very proud of this coordinate! I think it’s solid for small shopping days or dates with Bobby. 🙂

Spooky Saturday Hangout

Happy Monday! This past weekend, I did a little shopping and grabbed sushi with my friend, Cristina! We decided to dress up and it was a great opportunity for me to break in these cool bat shoes I got recently in a trade!

IMG_8078

Spooky!

Cristina & I regularly go and get bubble tea & sushi together but this time we went to a different sushi place because our other friend, Tempest, was having a sale at her shop. Tempest sells lots of cute j-fashion clothing & accessories, as well as her own handmade stuff! I ended up buying quite a few things including new eyelashes, large pom-pom clips (that I think will be great for circus coords), an eyelash holder, bat tights, and one of Tempest’s handmade deco boxes!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

IMG_8122

Tempest took a pic of me & Cristina before we left for food!

Tempest’s shop and the sushi place are located in this indoor shopping plaza. It seems on this exact day, there was a handmade craft fair going on at the same time. We kept getting compliments as we walked through as well as a lot of “nice costumes” ….. xD We stopped at a few various shops including this antique toy shop! I bought matching Care Bear cups for me & Cristina ^^ And then finally sushi!

IMG_8080

 

IMG_8084

I’ve eaten here once before so I order a type of sushi roll with soft shell crab. It’s so good, Cristina kept swapping pieces with me xD

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After sushi, we went to a cupcake shop also located in the plaza! I got a raspberry lemonade cupcake for myself an a caramel apple one for Bobby back home! ^_^

IMG_8091

It was such a fun day! I really enjoyed going to different shops dressed in Lolita. I don’t really shop at major retailers so whenever I go to the mall, I don’t really buy anything outside of Hot Topic. Because of this, wearing Lolita at a mall isn’t really as much fun. It was nice to actually wear Lolita and look for nice interesting things from a variety of unique shops rather than franchises. I hope I can do something like this again soon!

That’s it for this week! Thanks for reading!

 

Angelic Pretty – Cream Cookie Parade Review

Hello hello~ A few months ago, I placed an order with the US branch of Angelic Pretty and finally got around to making a post about it! I ordered pieces from Angelic Pretty’s Cream Cookie Parade line.

The announcement of Cream Cookie Parade hit me hard. Because of my desire to be a circus-themed lolita, I rarely look at prints outside of this theme. In fact, the only dress I own so far that doesn’t fit this aesthetic (diamonds, carousels, cards, stripes, carnivals, tuxedos, etc) is my Angelic Pretty’s Horror Garden JSK.

There’s been a lot of opposing opinions this year about Angelic Pretty’s newer releases. A lot of the criticism has been about the cuts, prints, and designs; some people even going as far to describe them as “boring.” I personally don’t get it! I’m perfectly okay with a design-oriented company trying new things and experimenting with style. Whatever Angelic Pretty made in the past already exists so what’s the point of making new stuff that looks like the old stuff? It reminds me of arguments whenever a band makes a new album. “The old stuff was better! They really sold out!” I never really thought I’d see that in Lolita fashion but I guess you experience new things every day!

I don’t consider myself to be a “Sweet” Lolita and especially not an OTT Sweet Lolita so I’m definitely liking the more mature approach Angelic Pretty has taken with their more recent cuts & prints this year. I have a few others I’ve got my eye on before the end of this year including Milky Pony Carnival, Dreamy Parfait, and Toy Circus (stock photos not yet released).

As mentioned in a previous post, biscuits & cookies are a guilty pleasure theme I have in contrast with Circus. My secondary wishlist items have been SWIMMER’s biscuit bags (two which I’ve acquired along with two FLAPPER biscuit bags) and Angelic Pretty’s Melty Chocolate shoes. So when I saw Cream Cookie Parade, I instantly knew I had to have it.

I ordered on July 21 the same time at the US release of the print. I wanted to get the Ivory OTKs as well but someone beat me to them. On top of that, the US branch did not stock any of the blouses. Since then, they’ve restocked those and I’m hoping to get them sometime before the end of the year! ^_^ In the meantime, I opted for the skirt, head-bow, and biscuit hair-clips. The package was marked shipped on July 24th and arrived July 28th!

Packaging with a cute note!

The bow sort of resembles rabbit ears and matches the print of the skirt. It’s so cute and fluffy to wear!

I love how delicious everything looks in the print. The ice cream, the biscuits, the tea, and cookie sandwiches! I feel like there was a lot of effort made into each food design.

IMG_7098

Even the lacing has cute spoons, forks, and knives in it!

 

Final Thoughts

I love everythinggg about this skirt! Honestly, it’s making me wonder if I should get the JSK or OP in pink as well! >_< I haven’t gotten the opportunity to wear it yet but I’m really looking forward to it!

Thanks for reading!

 

Edit: 11/19/17

I got the opportunity to wear it finally! c:

Tea at the Red Bird

Happy Monday! October means a great month of beautiful fall weather & activities! This past weekend, I experienced my first legit tea party with my Lolita community! We planned & reserved out a tearoom in a nearby town and it was hands down, the best meet I’ve ever gone to thus far.

The name of the cafe is called The Red Bird so of course, what better occasion for wearing red? The event was also a good introduction back into ouji for my other half, Bobby, who first tested the waters during the Swap Meet earlier this year for International Lolita Day! I’m really thankful for his participation. A girl in my comm, Emily, made a headband for one of her dresses and it ended up matching Bobby perfectly! He got to borrow it for the rest of the day!

I experimented a little with makeup! I wanted to go for something circus-inspired to match my dress so I tried out some white under eyeliner with red lipstick to imitate a clown smile!

IMG_7933

The food was so wonderful, lots of delicious sandwiches & baked goods. The trays had grapes, raspberries, and oranges as well for additional sweetness! At this cafe, you can pick your own tea cup and plate so I naturally selected a full pink set.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After the tea & lunch, we decided to take lots of group & coordinate pictures while the lighting was still good. I shockingly got a lot of great coordinate pictures out of it! Usually I mess up a lot of my pictures by laughing or posing awkwardly but I’m extremely proud of how a lot of these came out (thanks to Bobby for his phone & photo skills!)

20170930_150726

20170930_150738

We regularly got stopped by people who were interested in what we were wearing. Lots of photos were taken of us! It was definitely a pleasant contrast to a few weekends ago when I went to the movies & mall with Bobby. I guess because I was wearing lolita alone, it was easier for people to glare and be suspicious. In a group setting, where everyone is clearly having fun, people are laughing, and genuinely enjoying each others’ outfits, I guess for bystanders, the appearance is that we’re a “group” or doing it “for something” is enough to make the reaction more positive and welcoming. I’d like to test out the waters and contrast more public opinions received while in a group setting vs. sole lolita but that’s a different blog post for another day!

20170930_145030_002

My lovely friends!

After photos, we walked down the street to go to a bunch of different stores. We went to multiple antique shops, a comic book shop, and later a gift shop. At the gift shop, I actually managed to find something that I think would be great for my coordinates in the future! It’s a drama mask pin and the design matches the drama mask brass hair barrette I wore during the Swap Meet. I also made a clown friend!

IMG_7935

IMG_7943

 

20170930_154155

Overall, I can’t say enough positive things about this meet. Perfect weather, perfect food, perfect company! Days like that just really solidify why I love this fashion so much. Beyond just beautiful clothes, there’s a strong sense of community, togetherness, and expression. While I’m sure I would be a lone Lolita in the event I did not have an immediate surrounding community that I could help energize, there’s a lot to be said on how satisfying it is to be able to share your passion with other passionate people. I love being able to just sit and talk and express myself. It’s one of the greatest feelings in the world to me and I’m absolutely looking forward to our next big meet!

Circus Haul!

Hello, happy Monday! This week, I will be talking about recent themed purchases!

I am a lolita who deeply loves the circus/carousel/carnival theme and as such, most of my prints & accessories follow those themes! This particular haul post reflects a bundle of items I’ve gotten that I believe properly reflect these themes.

I got one of the last OTKs & dresses on my Wishlist, which was AATP’s Starlit Sky Tent and the Secret Circus Trope OP and Circus Tent Stripe OTKs!

ec05a28b-797d-528e-96ca-a50c9c59eaa3

b99ede70-4c7e-59a5-bb9a-18dd1f55fa9f

I bought them both from the same seller who also included the matching bonnet!

If anyone who reads this decides to get this OP, please know that the lolibrary measurements are not entirely accurate! If you’re tall with wide shoulders like I am the shirring won’t help in the way it’s supposed to! I actually wanted to get new bras so I got some minimizer bras and they helped me fit comfortably into the dress!

I also got a new blouse and vest. The blouse I got is from Excentrique and it’s called the Lace Collar Crown Blouse.

img_7817

Lace details

I really like that the collar resembles a ruff collar! It has a beautiful lace pattern and I really think it will pull a lot of my circus coordinates together.

img_7829

The striped vest is from PEACE NOW. I’m hoping to incorporate it in more gothic circus  coordinates. My biggest concern is that it’s like black & silver stripes rather than black & white but in pictures it doesn’t really seem noticeable! I’m hoping it’ll help balance out between skirts & blouses I have. Whenever I wear blouses & skirts, I always feel like my torso is empty so I believe this’ll help pull it together.

But the two winners of my recent stuff has to be the AATP Enamel Circus Shoes & this cool Jane Marple jacket I bought from Wunderwelt!

img_7815

img_7826

The shoes are SO GOOD I can’t stop wearing them ahhh; I’ve tried them on with so many things I own. The bows in the back are detachable! Funny story, the person I bought the shoes from was someone I had purchased a dress from in the past. At the time, the dress was missing an item (I knew it was missing before buying it) but the seller found it since then and sent it with the shoes! ;w; Another funny story, I actually saw these shoes posted in the Amino by someone and felt so bummed that I wouldn’t be able to get them. Days later they show up in my size! XD

As for the JM jacket, it has a jester feel! The collar is wire so the sections are adjustable! I was really hoping it would match my IW Midnight Merry Go Round print and in real life they’re a perfect blue match 😱One of the buttons came off as part of the listed damaged but that’s such an easy fix, it wasn’t a deterrent to getting it! Soooooooo excited to wear it!

Anyway thanks for reading all of that! I’m looking forward to planning out some new coordinates! (•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑
