I know one of the common topics on here is how your family reacts to your wearing Lolita. Well, my sister and I are into it and we have kind of gotten my cousin interested as well. We went to a convention a while ago my sis and I dressed in Wa-Loli and my cousin in Gothic Loli. There was a photographer there and we got pictures taken. Both my parents thought the outfits are adorable, not too surprising from my mom, but sometimes my dad surprises me with his closed mindedness.

So we were sitting around after Easter dinner and the whole family was over and my dad does something unexpected. He asks my grandparents and my grandmother if they had seen pictures of the three of us when we went on our trip and says, "No? You have to see the picture." I didn't realize what he was talking about until he came back with the photograph of us in Loli and was really uncertain of how my grandparents would react. All three of them adored the pictures. Funny thing is that I wouldn't have been nearly as worried if it was sweet loli, but I'm used to being the weird artist of the family that not everybody gets. It was really neat that they liked the outfits. My grandparents are kind of set in their ways, but I guess a huge bow and ruffly skirts never hurt anybody. lol

It's amazing that I didn't stay a tomboy with the way my grandmother did my hair. She always brushed too hard and recited, "It hurts to be beautiful." Every time I got ready for school at her house, I could count on a giant ponytail on the side of my head with a gigantic single curl and a fresh cut flower in my hair. I'll have to post one of the dresses she got me. TOO MUCH (cheap) RACE! + Peach = Ick
