Welcome meet for Sydney lolitas!

Last weekend I hosted a meet with the other moderators from the Sydney Lolita community to welcome all of our new members that have joined over the past few months. It was a really cold day for a picnic, but heaps of people still turned up which was awesome and we shivered together like a kawaii huddle of penguins.
I decided to wear one of my new dresses with a lot of new pieces I've recently got! I was too eager to wear them, but they will be in my next haul post though !!
Coodinate rundown:
Dress: Angelic Pretty Little Bear's Cafe OP
Cardigan: Milk donut print cardigan
Socks: Angelic Pretty ballerina socks
Shoes: An*Tai*Na tea parties
Bag: Angelic Pretty Royal Chocolate boston bag
Accessories: Nile perch, Angelic Pretty, Taobao 
We did introductions and got everybody to get to know each other on a first name basis - including names, hobbies, what kind of lolita style we like and what we study or do for jobs. It was so cool to see such a diverse range of people like such a niche fashion !!

We held a few panels regarding different topics to do with lolita which were really helpful. Nicole did a panel on how to deal with wearing lolita in public (which got everybody talking about funny stories!), Victoria did an amazing panel of how and where to buy lolita and included a master list of tips, tricks and stores to check out, as well as a wig and make up panel by Kylie and Cherry which included a make over for one of the girls !! Kate from Rouge Arie Designs couldn't make it on the day but made a hugeeeeee PDF file of lolita sewing basic tips and advice and it's been uploaded to the community page!

I of course forgot the trivia (but still handed out prizes so everybody got cute rilakkuma pens and cookie mirrors), and everybody bought a plate of food or drink to nom on while we all got to know each other. We also did a bit of filming for an upcoming Deerstalker Pictures video which I think is gonna be all kinds of great.

Normal group shot top, and derpy photo bottom of me and my favourite minions hohohohoho~
There are heaps of meets planned that are coming up soon and I'm thinking of doing laser tag. Hopefully that's something awesome to come back and blog about, hahahaha !!

  2. How nice! That's a fun idea if maybe someone would revive our comm from the dead, because I know a few people in my state have joined the army of frills!

  3. Ohmygosh that cardigan! It matches your OP so perfectly, it's hard to believe they are two different brands! Your comm looks like a lot of fun. I might be moving to Australia next year but the other side of the continent to Sydney unfortunately *sadface*

    1. Thank you! It was such a fluke and I'm so happy I bought it because I love donuts and this cardigan was just so perfect.
      Awwwww, that sucks! But there is other Australian communities you can join and they're all so lovely.
