International Lolita Day – Swap Meet & Picnic

Hello!
This past Sunday I hosted my very first lolita meetup!

To celebrate International Lolita Day, my community had a swap meet & picnic!

I was really nervous because it was my first time ever hosting a meetup and I hadn’t met most of my comm yet. On top of that, the weather forecast predicted thunderstorms for a few days.  I made sure to buy tarps to put up in the picnic shelter, but fortunately despite raining in the morning, it cleared up very quickly and was sunny for the rest of the day! (*´▽`*)



One lolita brought loose tea and it was definitely one of the most refreshing experiences I’ve had in a while. Drinking fresh hot tea on a cool rainy morning was such a pleasant feeling. Another lolita brought these very delicious ice cream cone s’mores!

 

Because lolita has become such a large part of my life, I’ve introduced my boyfriend, Bobby, to ouji fashion. He was thoughtful enough to consider trying it out for the picnic so I made sure we took a picture together even though we didn’t exact match. It’s my dream to color coordinate something wonderful with him!

 

Ultimately I ended up selling 3 blouses & a pair of wristcuffs! I swapped and got a blouse, a cutsew, bloomers, black otks, and a very lovely black Innocent World JSK!

Overall, it was a massive success and I’m very thankful I got to meet my comm on such a lovely day!

 

Coordinate:

OP – Goodbye Alice by Maofish

Brass Barrette – Local Shop

Stockings – Offbrand

Rocking Horse Shoes – Bodyline

See you next week!

Circus Date

Happy Sunday!

This past Saturday, I went on a date with my boyfriend to a travelling circus!

It was amazinggg! At the beginning, all of the performers came out for a nice introduction.

I really wish I had gotten better pictures of the clowns but their performances were really good! They barely communicated with words and relied a lot on their physicality to convey certain jokes.img_5923

The acrobats were easily the most amazing part. At one point, one of the acrobats was hanging by her neck from a hoop strung from the ceiling! The jugglers stood on top of each other and threw pins at each other!

And seriously, another acrobat shot a bow & arrow with her foot and popped a balloon!

But possibly one of the coolest parts of the circus was the motorcyclists who drove around in a metal globe.

I dressed in a lolita coordinate for the occasion. I wore Magial Etolie since it fit well with the circus theme and also matched my camera strap!
