Now, onto the pictures!
Group shot by veilchenblau. Pictures are by a mixture of me and her.
We started off at Plaisir du Chocolat, a delicious, if cripplingly expensive tea room that serves what's possibly the best hot chocolate in the world. Sadly yuka02 couldn't attend this part of the meetup, as she was still at school.
When the cakes arrived we kinda forgot to get a picture of them before we'd all tucked in, so here's a picture of our half-eaten tasties. And skyblue_pink and I's tits.
I'm the resident fatty-chan of the Edinburgh lolita group, and here I give a demonstration as to how I got that way :P. Plaisir du Chocolat get a mixture of kudos and hate for not only actually having gluten free cake, but also having gluten free cake that doesn't taste rank...thus, my diet dies a painful death under a tonne of chocolate icing.
Lolis full of cake are happy lolis. In this pic you can see skyblue_pink's pretty cravat she made from ribbon. I'm stealing her idea.
veilchenblau and a_solitary_soul glow like radient loli angels. Or because my photography skills suck. Don't they look cute together? veilchenblaus hair is bright leik xbox power light.
Working out the bill. Maths r rori?!
a_solitary_soul always dresses perfectly. She's one of the best-dressed lolis I know.
skyblue_pink looking cute in shirololi.
After that we headed into town to wander aimlessly around the shops for a while. veilchenblau bought an awesome new hat and some obnoxious fat kid in Harvey Nicks asked us what we were dressed up as. And a tramp shouted stuff at us. And some tourists wanted their pic taken with us. Anyone else find they get far more attention in a group of lolis than on their own? We also met up with yuka02 in Jenners.
This is a cool bowl...thing that was full of dry ice and sitting on one of the perfume counters in Jenners. The hands belong to me and a_solitary_soul.
Matching VM Beth coats.
I was egged on by veilchenblau
to act a little crazy around this sign but I don't know why.
Then skyblue_pink got roped into it.
yuka02 and a_solitary_soul were bemused/unimpressed by our antics.
We went to a posh hat shop in the Grassmarket area and had fun trying on the merchandise. They had minature Russian hats, pirate-style tricornered hats, top hats, a strange cow hat that yuka02 looked really cute it (anyone get a pic?) and all sorts. Here, skyblue_pink and I do some kind of gangsta style loli twin thing. Blingin' it loli style. Kuro, shiro, east side, west side...Morningside? I actually own a trilby but it doesn't get worn with loliwear. And it's not all that fluffy.
Then, we headed to the wonderful Meadowood cafe for dinner and bubble tea. We were joined by veilchenblau and a_solitary_soul's non-loli flatmate, Claire. But she looks good in it, and she will be assimilated, soon. Oh yes.
Overall, the meetup was a resounding success. Hopefully we can have another formal one in a few months!
