Part 1 is a little bit of Thursday and a whole lot of Friday, when we had our annual Teavolve shenanigans. Unfortunately for everyone there was no karaoke this year and thus no horrible embarrassing karaoke VIDEOS. I can only apologize.
We did get to witness a great panel about the individuality of the style in the US, called "Freedom of Fashion: the American Lolita", which shared some really interesting perspectives on why lolita manifests in its (great!) and highly unique way in the US.
Gorgeous sweetsailormars and arktoi don't kick me out of their elegance party even though I am panda-ing. They are both in Millefleurs, a sadly underrepresented brand!
We saw this sign while in pre-reg:
And definitely sympathized!!
Oh I don't have that many lolita pictures from Thursday I guess. On to the REAL excitement!
yuki_dragon kept trying to sell me tickets to the gun show and I politely refused and said I'm a pacifist and they were like, "C'mon please" and I lied and told them I didn't have any money and finally they just GAVE me a ticket. THEY SHOULD HAVE PAID ME.

thislonlyflower and toujourspret are opposite in style but equally cute
Don't talk to me about peace, Xanet! You're a lolita, not a DIRTY HIPPIE
Cute girl whose name I need a reminder of and mr_cutiepants
That is probably why you're number 2 out of 2, Jeremiah :(

Lovely Elizabeth, who doesn't get NEARLY enough credit for running the tea party every year (thank you, darling!!) and Marissa, whose first meetup this was! I hope we made an ok impression. Probably not. D:
Zoh, showing off a BURNIN' HOT Morrigan NYC prototype, and sakurafairy , showing off an ICE COLD Lily of the Valley Designs OP!
Posing with pretty much my favorite person in the world, Miss Claire/ queenofdorks of Cute Plush. If you like things that are AWESOME and ADORABLE (made by someone whom these adjectives also describe!) you should probably hit her up right this very second.
I am amazed and delighted by our color palette. And our assortment of hair accessories! We're bossy in the Kelis sense of the word.
We call her Cotton Candy Koda 'round these here parts but you may know her as a_dropofcolour . The hotness on the right is
noodleynaddles and pony_parade , who ends up showing off her bustle. Don't worry bb I was already looking at it, you don't have to point it out to me. /creepy
Why did I end my creepy tag! I need to be continuously creepy on behalf of Angel and adoooorable circadianpuppet
kisei_prophet makes me want to make so many Of Mice and Men/Looney Tunes references at once why are you doing this to meeeee. cupcakecadaver 's endorsement of Aquafina drove up sales 100fold!!
I found some AP for you since east coast cons don't seem to rep it that much. We do rep DINOS, thanks to legsdiamond , and it makes me proud to be Atlantic
Two really cute girls in matching Meta Swan Lake, and adorable Petrina
Erin punx it up, remains cute while doing so, and bakaneko47 may be wearing cherries but is never the pits. HMM. I think I should have let that one go.
Miakoda, bakaxtenshi , Morgan, and Kara demonstrate the FREEDOM OF FASHION of the American lolita
An, I promise to stop making puns with your name but only because you are so awesome! The story with the picture on the right was that my sister and I were posing for a picture and tihs guy jumped into it. He tried to back out at the last minute but I told him to stay and I think we became one big happy family for those three seconds.
This isn't even the last of the swan lake but I don't get tired of it when cuties like misadesu are wearing it!
I'll post pictures from the Ultimate Lolita Fashion Show and general goings-on soon!
