2013-12 Christmas meetup in Ostrava

On 21th December, right before Christmas, I visited Ostrava lolitas community, with lovely Domi and Silvia, the sweetest lolitas we have around here :3 Again we stayed at the cosy small cake shop we visited in summer.



Domi, Silvia, me, Niki, Reni.
We gave each other small christmas presents!

 

I took my old Panasonic camera with me to take pictures, but being winter and dim lights inside, they turned to be quite grainy. It's frustrating, I have to figure out how to take good photos! Silvia and Domi are such a cute lolitas, though :3



Silvia is wearing BtSSB My Friend Usakumya Judy JSK and Domi is wearing AP Wonder Party skirt together with Anna House blouse (I have the same one :D). I fell in love with Wonder Party in sax.. its such a pleasant dusty blue color!

2013-10 Lolita calendar photoshoot

Czech lolitas had their own calendar for 2014! Ketmara travelled across the Czech republic to take pictures of czech lolitas. When she said she plans to visit our city, we got together to have photos taken too!


I lended my friend Taiseria my Marriage d'Amour JSK for the shoot. It just looks so gorgerous on her and fits her well! I think she looks better in it than I do. Before everyone arrived, we fooled a bit at the statues where we were to meet them!



When everyone arrived, Ketmara asked us where we are going to take the photos. That was a huge surprise! So we scarmbled together to come up with viable locations. We spent most of the day going back and forth in a city and standing by. Stella showed up in a mint macaron skirt :3




Ketmara went one person a time, it was windy and photos turned out to be blurred. I'm not sure why nothing was sharp in the resulting photos we obtained but at least I was able adjust and sharpen them in Photoshop :3


This scene in a park was simply gorgerous, and the wind supplied a perfect poof for once!

 

 
 
People slowly dropped out one by one as they had their photos taken and by late afternoon it was only me, Tairesia and Ketmara. Knowing most czech lolitas wear gothic and classic, I came up with as sweet a coord as I could put together. It was not very suitable into historical city core though, so I was the last one who didn't yet have any photos taken. We came to my home for some photo props and tried to rush a quick picnic style shoot. It was too windy though, the blanket refused to lay still!



So we came in, I took out my pastel dresses (not many, then), and Ketmara took this awesome photo. I really like it, it reminds me of MilkyFawn.. just with less clothes xD I should re-take it someday now when I have so many more pastel dresses and a proper lolita fringe haircut :3




Part of the calendar is available for viewing here. As always, click on the picture to get bigger version! In the end, I didn't buy the calendar, since I don't like the formatting used, or the choice of photos. My photo didn't get in, but my friend's Tairesias did! Noone can take away the fun I had that day though!




I've also found this short mention of the shooting in Brno from Mitsu (in czech only), and report from Stella.

One dress, many ways!

Some people may think that lolita fashion with its many rigid 'rules' makes it boring fashion. I would want to test it, so I took one of my least worn dress, which is my Angelic Pretty's Precocious Lady JSK  and went to see how many ways to combine it I can come up with!


Turns out I have dozens of ways to wear the dress, its amazing! My outfit depends mostly on weather, I want to be both pretty and comfortable :3 I usually end up wearing one of my favorite combinations.. it wouldnt hurt to experiment with my coords some more!



Oh my, I'm so cold I've opted for tights and    Slightly warmer, I've put my bolero away
put together a knitted turtleneck and              and took Innocent World's OTKs.
Bodyline bolero!



The best of spring or autumn weather with      It's summer and getting hot!
Infanta blouse and Innocent World's OTKs.    Since I don't have black blouse, 
                                                                        I went casual.


The hottest of summer. Boater hat instead             Slightly windy, but still sunny.
of bows, no blouse and frilly ankle socks!               Cute cardigans for the win :3



Summer is ending.. I picked a BtSSB           Autumn started. Dear Celine cutsew blouse
cutsew and OTKs this time!                          and white Bodyline shoes to complement 
                                                                      the white collar.



Autumn in progress! Back to turtleneck,       Swapping the turtleneck for blouse for
with Angelic Pretty OTKs and different         instant sweetness when it gets warmer!
bag giving off more classical vibe.


Back in summer! Angelic Pretty                          Pink x navy outfit for autumn.
cutsews are comfortable and cute :3                  No need for prints here.


                                          Last but not the least, a special accessorized
                                          outfit in pink x sax for meetups!


Its not even all the combinations, wheew! Certainly not a boring fashion at all.. or do you think they are alike? Theres certainly an aesthetics I prefer, I do admit that. :3
