Lolita Christmas meetup

I went to the Christmas shopping meetup of my local Lolita community last saturday, and it was fun! I really am unhappy with how I looked, but the important thing was we all had a good time. We met at cosplay n charm, and then went for dim sum, then went to a bakery and the local Korean market! I got some cute things for my roommate as thanks for dropping me off, and broke my low carb diet for the occasion. I'm trying to be good now, though.



I got to see Michelle!! She's been out of the country teaching in Japan, I missed her! She's so cute and her mom made her dress!


Bree also looked super cute!


Jhericca kept things going smoothly and got pics of us, so I snagged some of her too, lol.






I'm totally getting a wig soon because my hair is just not volumous enough for Lolita. I'm only disappointed that I can't wear both a wig and a hat. My head is too big. :( There's a lot I wanna improve on this outfit but it'll come in time. I just won a beautiful silver chiffon JSK (my first one!) and I'm excited to get things together for it by the January New Years meetup!

But for now, I gotta focus. There's a lot still to get done before Christmas and Ikkicon, despite me not having any new costumes to make. There's repairs on Decus for [personal profile] insidious, washing Phinks's wig, making the cover to Leorio's briefcase, and finishing getting the gifts for my family ready for Christmas!

AND I'm in a fandom icon exchange, which I'm almost done with but I wanted to make one extra icon for good measure. Guh if I can just find the time. I still owe Christmas cards to a few people, too. This time of year always kicks my ass into gear being creative but I also overstretch myself. I've got so many ideas and things that built up while I was sewing cosplay all year instead, though.

I've been playing a bit of .hack//Fragment in offline mode while I get the hang of it. My computer severely lags, but I really want to join the few online players that are still around. I got a new controller (it had to be analog to work correctly, the bluetooth one I had to return), and I'm going to save up next month to get a new laptop. It may take me until March to afford it though. Guh.

And once January rolls around I've really got to start working on our A-kon cosplays.

It's 5 though, so I gotta go. I'll update more later!
