Another Picnic?!

It's summer here in Southern California, and for our Lolita community, that means PICNICS. This one was in honor of a friend of a friend, visiting from the east coast of Canada. We all got together to show him how cool we are over here!

All aboard!

Anime Expo 2012

 Anime Expo! Biggest event of the year for an anime fan in California, and well worth going to.

Tea Party photo with Lolita modal Misako Aoki
I only went for two days (work, c'est la vie) but it was still a great weekend. I wore Lolita one day, to go to the tea party, and cosplay the second day. I didn't take too many pictures because I knew there were lots of other professional photographers that would do a better job, but I couldn't help snapping a few of some great cosplays, and of course, me and my friends.

Sewing Projects Part Two: Corset Adventures

I've always wanted to try making my own corset. I'm not a huge corset person, but I like them, and enjoy wearing them. I figured, I'm a good seamstress, I should be able to do this.

Well, I can. But it wasn't easy! And while I am very pleased with the results, I probably won't be making another one any time soon.

Terrible picture, but it shows the corset well enough.
