Hello lolitas!

I'm gonna warn all of you here at egl right now: you're probably going to see a lot of photo posts from our meetup today. We had a bigger turnout than I ever could have imagined: about 30-40 people must have shown up all at once! I have a few pictures here, so allow me to share them with you until everyone else posts their more awesome meetup pics!

After hearing that the picnic was cancelled (was probably for our own good too, with the heat and all!), I got up and met Martha (marthaness) over at Metropark in NJ to head over to the Big Apple! We got to Penn Station and met up with Ericka (t3h_janitor_jim), Regina (tokyosheart), and Brian, Ericka's boyfriend. Whooo black and white lolitas! We didn't even plan it hahaha!

So we strolled on down to Chelsea and met up with Aisha ([Bad username: xchibiusadax"]) by yelling out "LOLITA!" as she walked down the street. Inside, we also met some people dressed in Moitie (hehehe) and then...well...everything sort of exploded...

After 20 more people arrived, we decided to split up and go eat/get something to drink. My part went to a cute organic teahouse:

tea
Martha, Kara (s/n? forgot it again!!) and of course, Carla (ugly_kitties), our beloved and much harassed organizer!

talk
Jennifer, Alyssa (s/n?), Mary (tropigalia), and ?? (AAAHH I forgot your name!) engaged in deep conversation over iced tea.

OK, after that...we walked all around, took over a subway car or too, and arrived in Union Square for our OMGAMAZING photoshoot! We confused so many people...lolita gang, anyone?

pink
The pink sweet lolitas! Though I'm in white, I have a pink umbrella lol. From left to right, me (Angela), Aya (burikkoxp), Ai (ailolita), Carla, Amber (amanikitty), Millie (cupcakecadaver), and Morgan (darcia26).

red
Red lolitas! Mary, Kara, Yanise (bakaneko47), Alyssa, and Claudia (cecily_not_me)

bxw
Black and white group! Notice how I sneaked into this one as well...Martha, Regina, ??, ??, K (how do you spell your name?!), Rei (nerorizim), Ericka and Brian, Aisha, me, Veleesa (harumoni), and Nikki (s/n?).

blue
Kelsey (legsdiamond) is the only blue lolita in the area!

nj
New Jersey peeps, make some noise! I don't know why this turned out like that...

And now, random shots of milling around...

And afterwards, much walking around at St. Mark's and the Village, ending in an Australian ice cream shop. Bwahaha. A small group of us split off and wandered into Jas-mart on St. Marks, where we ran into some cosplayers that we actually knew! Small world, eh?

Girls, I'm so glad I got to meet every one of you! There were so many of us that I didn't get to talk to everyone as much as I'd like, but hopefully more meetups will change that! See you all soon, hopefully! Now, I'm counting on more of you to supply us with more pics!
