|World Fantasy Convention
During the Halloween holiday weekend, I was able to attend the World Fantasy Convention 2010 in Columbus, Ohio. And for two of the days that I was there, I was able to wear Casual Lolita outfits. Many people at the convention commented on how nicely dressed I was. My, my ! What nice complements for the Gothic / Lolita fashion style !
|Additions to my lolita wardrobe
I am starting to add brand name items to my wardrobe. I now have a lolita skirt with a candy and bon-bons print , and two lolita head bows, from In the Starlight. I was able to order and receive them just days before In the Starlight shut down their website. And I now have a pink and black with a flower print JSK from Bodyline of Japan. I bought it from a dealer in the dealer's room at the Otakon anime convention. I can't believe that it fits, but it fits well and looks great ! I attended the Gothic / Lolita fashion show at Otakon, and was impressed with a USA designer called Candy Threads. One of their dresses or skirts might be my next addition.
Myself and two other friends visited the Chicago Botanical Gardens one weekend last September. All three of us were dressed Gothic / Lolita and had no trouble being out in public with the other people attending the Gardens that Sunday. Although we received many odd looks, everyone was pleasant and respectful to us. The many kinds of flowers and shrubs were all very beautiful to look at and smell. I attended a live classical music concert at the Gardens that evening. I sat on the shore of the calm lake at the Gardens, and listened to the music come across the lake to me from the performers on the other side of the lake.So lovely ! What a lovely place, we must return again someday, dressed Gothic / Lolita, of course !
|Hello to all !
Hello to everyone ! My name is Carousel Susan En~Rose, and I have been a Gothic / Lolita for about three years now. I attended Otakon anime convention this last July, and went to the Gothc / Lolita fashion show, dressed as a punk lolita. It was mentioned at the Gothic / Lolita panel that the largest group of lolitas in North America was on LJ, so when I got home, I found this group. I currently have a country lolita and a punk lolita outfit.
