Halloween Coord

Hi lovelies!

Today, as you all know, was Halloween! Fortunately we were allowed to wear costumes at work so I was able to wear lolita all day! I must admit I wouldn't wear that wig for 9 hours straight again, but it was fun just for this once.

Here is the very simple coord I wore to work today for Halloween!
The quality isn't great, I took the picture when I came back tonight so it was dark outside. I didn,t get the time to take a picture this morning ;^^

Here a rundown of the coord:
Jsk and headbow - Angelic Pretty's Memorial cake
Wig - Gothic lolita wigs
Coat - Red queen's black legion
Bolero - Offbrand 
Bag - Girldorock
The rest (wristcuffs, jewelry, shoes, etc.) is mostly offbrand.

I know it's not much, but I still hope you liked my post.
Happy Halloween everyone!!!

(I may add a picture that my coworker took a bit earlier when I receive it)

Lolita Meeting St-Dolores 2013 and Update

Hi everyone!

Sorry for the long time without any posts! I was very busy this summer. I moved in a new appartment, then had to finish my cosplays for Otakuthon and for Comic Con. Eveything was 1 month apart so I didn't get time to sit down and write new posts. I did get some ideas though and I attended a meeting this summer too. It's the big meeting we have once a year with every lolitas from the Quebec Province. It,s been maybe 2-3 months since the meeting but I'd still like to share it with you.

So as usual we had a big meeting near St-Dolores day. We were a bit less than last year I think but it was a rainy day so I guess it explains why a bit. I planned to wear my Cherry berry bunny and tried to loose weight to fit in it... but after a while I understood that I would never be able to fit in that particular version of the dress. The place where the waist is supposed to be sits on my rib cage... I cannot loose weight from there XD So I ended up wearing my Polka dot milky-chan applique jsk. It wasn't what I wanted, but I still liked to wear that particular dress again, it brought back memories of my first meeting.

This is the picture I took before heading out for the meeting. I don't usually wear wigs, but this time I really wanted to try it out with a lolita outfit.
I didn't manage to take a fullbody picture since all my stuff was already packed for my move the next day... so no big mirror XD I can still do an outfit rundown since it'll be visible on other pictures:

Jsk, headbow, milky-chan bag, bracelet, ring and parka: Angelic Pretty
Star clip: Chocomint
Wristcuff: Handmade (not by me)
Necklace: Swarovski
Shoes: Antaina

Unfortunately, like I said before it was a rainy day. Of course it will never stop us to have a meeting!
The subway ride was a bit tiring and I was really happy when I arrived at the meeting station. Everyone was so beautiful again this year!

This picture is pretty blurred, but it's me and my friend together at the subway station.

After everyone was there we went to a museum, the Musée du Château Dufresne.We took a big picture before going in though!

Everything was so beautiful inside! We visited the various rooms with a guide who explained the history of the castle. Explaining how gorgeous everything looked wouldn't be as effective as showing some pictures... so here we go!

Ok this one is kinda creepy...

After the museum visit, we went to Birks to drink tea again this year. It was as good as I remembered it from last time. While I must admit that it is expensive for an afternoon tea, I do think it is worth it!

After the tea the group split up and we went to the old port in Montreal to take a few pictures (I don't have most of them yet) and enjoy the free time we had.


With little time left, we finished the day at a bubble tea lounge in Chinatown.

It was a great meet and I look forward to the next one! I cannot attend every meet because of my job schedule, but when I can I'm very happy to go there!

Another thing I did this summer related to lolita is participating in a lolita calendar project! The teaser for my month (March) just came out today and I'm quite happy with the picture. The theme for that month was Easter/Rabbit. You can't see on the teaser picture but I'm wearing the BTSSB bunny earmuffs together with the fancy box jsk. Credit goes to sandra sunshine photographer.

Hope you enjoyed this kind of come back post!
