Photos and video from Sakura Matsuri and Dances of Vice:Secret Garden Spring Ball events: NYC, NY

Mary Alice in Lolita Fashion
Sakura Matsuri cherry blossom festival at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens (BBG) Saturday, April 30–Sunday, May 1, 2011

On Saturday there was a Lolita meet up and picnic and I went back again on Sunday, since the weather was so nice.

Due to the unfortunate choice of wording by the BBG, for this event, many of the Lolitas decided to give this Promenade part of the Saturday events a miss.
"BBG Parasol Society Promenade: Tokyo goth gals, Victorian maidens, and boho Bo-Peeps stroll the grounds. Music by happyfunsmile”.
It was totally unrehearsed and random order walk and twirl of the stage and then a promenade through the garden with happyfunsimle leading the way.
Here is a video:  (I'm at the 3:35 point in the video)
And a photo of me durring the promenade
