AWA picture post!

I come bearing AWA pictures! It was really nice meeting everyone, I wish the weekend could have lasted longer. I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked at the Sunday tea, as I had to leave early, but here's what I have!

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


~~FRIDAY~~
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
</a></b></a>carnet_atelier
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)



</a></b></a>clearlyperilous
and
</a></b></a>emiko




</a></b></a>clearlyperilous
is so cute, i can hardly stand it!


eat the whipped creeeeeeeeeeeeeam, says Shelly (screenname??)



</a></b></a>naiteiru
and
</a></b></a>cloudsnapper
, both looking ridiculously cute


My adorable co-host,
</a></b></a>cloudsnapper
, 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!





</a></b></a>clearlyperilous
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
</a></b></a>emiko
's shoes.


We noticed this sign...


...Only AFTER we took this picture.
Top row, from left:
</a></b></a>cloudsnapper
,
</a></b></a>arktoi
,
</a></b></a>emiko
,
</a></b></a>clearlyperilous

Bottom row, from left:
</a></b></a>carnet_atelier
,
</a></b></a>naiteiru
, 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.





</a></b></a>dear_mo
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.


Aww...


Double aww...


Back view


The hair!


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.

~~SATURDAY~~

</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~~

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!


</a></b></a>mastergode, </a></b></a>missmeganmaude, </a></b></a>naiteiru, and </a></b></a>emiko


I don't know who you are, but you're so cute!


Some of my adorable table-mates. I forget your names, though I know the one in the middle in Mary Magdalene (<3) is </a></b></a>stringy_cow.


</a></b></a>emiko, </a></b></a>clearlyperilous, and </a></b></a>cloudsnapper


</a></b></a>mastergode, </a></b></a>naiteiru, </a></b></a>missmeganmaude, and </a></b></a>emiko

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. ^_^
