Coordinate Catch-up: Outfits from January through March



Convention season is already started here in California, so Lolita has fallen by the wayside already, as it does when cosplay takes over my life. Even so, I did have some occasions to dress up with my friends!

I've been trying to wear Lolita when I play Pathfinder on the weekends, so I've been coming up with cute, comfortable outfits to wear when I game. This was what I wore to play in January.

Later in the month, we had an ice skating meetup with the comm, and I chose to wear boystyle for easy skating. It was really fun (even though I got overconfident and fell once, oops) and I'm glad I went with pants for my outfit.

For "Galentine's Day" I went to a fabric sale with my best friend. We both wore Lolita, and the ladies at the sale loved it! I got some great new materials for Lolita projects, including a beautiful tartan that I can't wait to make into a JSK.

The community Valentine's Day meetup was a week later, and at an art museum. It also happened to be my birthday, so rather than wearing something Valentine's themed, I wore the JSK that I had just gotten as a birthday present to myself!

“Sophia” Blouse BABY THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT
Headdress Alice and the Pirates (+SurfaceSpell roses)
Socks Alice and the Pirates

And last but not least, the only event I went to in March was a tea party in honor of the Korean brand LIEF, which is one of my personal favorites. I coordinated my favorite LIEF JSK again, and it occurred to me that this is probably my most-worn dress! But I think that's okay, because it's my favorite.

Printemps Blouse Juliette et Justine
Beret handmade by me
Socks Angelic Pretty

Things will be pretty busy until July, so I don't expect to be able to wear much Lolita in the next couple of months, but I hope that I will at least have a few opportunities since I love it so much. Coming up next, my Hanadoki Con masquerade experience!
