My friend Ruki.
Me with my friend Shambi, who had this wonderful pose idea!
My friend Tairesia, who lives in the same city as me!
My outfit rundown:
Headbow: Bodyline front bow on a band
Dress: Bodyline sailor collar OP + Angelic Pretty detachable sleeves
Overdress: Angelic Pretty's Tea Time a la Carte salopette
OTKs: Angelic Pretty
Originally I had planned completely different outfit because it's middle of the summer, but it turned out to be 10-15 C in weather forecast so the day before the picnic I had to plan something entirely different or freeze! So I sewed buttons to the sleeves of my pink Bodyline dress and attached my AP blouse sleeves to it, and layered a salopette over the dress. Add in a bolero and OTKs, and it was guaranteed I'm not going to be cold :3 I also re-sewed a detachable front bow from the Bodyline dress (those things are obnoxiously huge and flat) to look better and attached it to a headbow, for I am still missing a proper plain pink head-eating bow :)
Some compulsory cell phone selfies!
Then we went to the adjacent park and unpacked the picnic supplies. I baked an american pumpkin pie, and brought tiny PBJ sandwiches and fruit salad. We had a Texas lolita over (Hi, Amy!) for the picnic so I hope it made her happy ^.^ My pumpkin pie actually won the picnic's baking contest, yay!
The park is beside a rock with a castle sitting on top! It's really steep and across the river beside the park, there was another one with a via ferrata, a pre-prepared path for mountain climbers.
We packed during the late afternoon and headed home.. as it took us till midnight to get home by train, we threw a second round with leftover supplies in the train!
