If you're one of the people whose names I've forgotten, please let me know and I"ll edit the post to include you. XD
I made it to the Cheesecake Factory Loli meetup on Friday a bit late, due to there being like sixty car accidents on the way over. -_-;;
Some myspace shots i took in the car. =P
I finally got to meet
in person! She's so cute and awesome. We ended up hanging out quite a bit over the weekend.
A shot of the table(s)
is so cute, i can hardly stand it!

, both looking ridiculously cute
My adorable co-host,
, who really is in charge of making this thing happen. ^_^
I had these absolutely delicious Firecracker Salmon Rolls. Sooooooooo good (and pretty, too. XD)
Adorable girl, I forget your name!
finds burando clearly delicious.
After partaking in many delicious foodstuffs, we went outside to take some "official" pictures...
obligatory shoe shot-though amusingly, this was my first time ever doing one of these at a meetup. I love
We noticed this sign...
...Only AFTER we took this picture.

, I forget!!!
After the meetup, it was time to head back to the hotel for a quick nap and then get ready for the ball!
*squee* He's so cute! He got a pink vest and tie to match my hair (totally his idea! Though it wasn't quite bright enough. XD). <333
Kissies! Forgive the photoshop, I get "artistic" sometimes.
We clean up good!
Baaaaah, con lighting sucks.
I'm not as happy with my skirt as I would have liked. I made it out of taffeta, which was a mistake, in retrospect. I thought the shiny material would make the gathers show up better...which it did...but it also made the wrinkles show up as well. -_-;; If I ever have another occasion to wear this, I'll remake it.
took some "artsy" shots.
I love this corset! Unfortunately I think I should have ordered a smaller size, as I can quite comfotably lace it all the way.
When we got tired of running around being pretty, we headed back to the room to change into something a bit more comfortable.
I always catch </a></b></a>dear_mo making silly faces!
Casual punk pirate lolita?! That's what I'm calling it, anyway.
Boxheads! Random guy and </a></b></a>deafeuphoria
Joe in Security Guy Mode.
And then...it was bedtime.
</a></b></a>nekodan had mentioned earlier int he week that he wanted me to be part o fhis steampunk group, but of course I didn't have time to get an outfit ready, so Saturday morning I raided joe's suitcase and found anyting that might make a steampunk-esque accessory. I think I did a pretty good job.
</a></b></a>dear_mo found an Aquabat!
Here's my improvised steampunk outfit. My blouse and skirt, joe's suspenders, goggles, and strap-thingy. Not so bad, eh? I was a steampunk-lolita. XD There should be more steampunk lolitas.
I'm so sad that this picture is blurry! Grrrr, hotel room lighting.
</a></b></a>carnet_atelier's friend Trey. I think he needs moar race.
Shoeless loli! Me, </a></b></a>cloudsnapper, and </a></b></a>carnet_atelier.
</a></b></a>kiyomi23 always looks so cute! I love her Rose Chocolat boots.
The steampunk group! They gave me that bigass hammer thing to carry around and furs to wear on my shoulders, so I became kind of a berserker-barbarian...but a cute one. XD
Sam (i forget your LJ!) is so sexy. <33
Not my picture (though i forget where i stole it from!) but it's another good group shot.
From left: Sam (lj??), </a></b></a>nekodan, Dustin (lj?), Jeff(???), </a></b></a>morluna, </a></b></a>stupid_drawings, and moi.
Of course, I had to try on the sweet helmet. Dustin said I looked "adorkable". XD
Sunday, as usual, I didn't do much of anything. I ran back to the dealer's room for a while, and then hit the lolita tea later in the afternoon. The tea was ok, though I didn't know very many people there...and there were quite a few WTF outfits, I must say. XD BUt everyone was nice, and I had a pretty good time.
</a></b></a>clearlyperilous is always so cute!!
So is </a></b></a>cloudsnapper!!
I looked so tired and beat on Sunday. THis is me trying on </a></b></a>kiyomi23's Meta jacket.
Tea Party Time!

After some lovely tea and socializing, I had to run and wake up the boy, who was still exhausted from his night shift. Poor thing.
Unfortunately this is the only picture I have of me from Sunday. Omg! Corset!lolita! XD.
So...that was my weekend! I had a great time (though I'm still catching up on sleep). It was nice meeting everyone! Please feel free to add me if I met you this weekend, and I'll do the same for you. ^_^
