Meet-up Photos: Toronto Loliday 2009

A rather belated Loliday meet-up post: we had a small, last-minute get-together in Toronto's Distillery District, where we wandered around, ate pastries, looked at art, and couldn't stop talking. Oh, and we took some pictures!


Please note: I am terrible with names & LJ user names. If I've gotten yours wrong, which I fear that I have, my apologies! Please let me know & I'll fix the post :)

After wandering a bit, we stopped at Balzac's Cafe for some tasty drinks (left to right are: Sarah, cruciger, bliss_symphony, swtgreentea):

mujitsukyo - I wish I'd taken more photos of the cafe, it had a HUGE chandelier and was really quite elegant! Oh well, next time!

Then we found a not-too-crowded area for taking pictures!

Close-up (aren't they all *gorgeous*?)

karen_dp and I twinned in Iron Gate replica dresses I made for us.

I <3 Karen so much! Most photos of us together have me laughing, because we tend to wind up acting like this:

Karen attempted to build a make-shift tripod using a chair and a stack of purses, until some poor fellow took pity on us and grabbed the camera to take a few all-group photos for us:

Wandering around looking at art installations:

This guy wanted us to come lie on what he claimed was "the world's softest bed". Uh, no thanks.

And then we started climbing the artwork:

Getting down was apparently pretty slippery:

Crazy sculptures:

We called this The Circle. Everyone got along so well, we could barely walk ten feet without winding up in a circle, talking. It was sort of hilarious:

Then we went for dinner at a nearby pub. I don't have photos of that, because I was too busy eating! On our way home, a few of us came across a tiny little arcade, and karen_dp had to play a round of pinball:

Thanks for looking! If you're in the Toronto area, the next meet-up is planned for July 4, and it should be a big one - you have to join the gta_lolita community for details, and you *have* to RSVP!
