This past Saturday was the February Meet-Up for the Milwaukee Lolita Society, and this month, we went for sushi! I had been craving sushi for a few weeks, so I was really looking forward to it.
During the afternoon, I was down in the middle of nowhere in Illinois for a photo shoot. It went from 10-5, and the Meet-Up was at 7pm. The two locations were about 2.5 hours from each other though, so I ended up arriving at the restaurant about 30 minutes late. I had been dressed up as Harley for the shoot, and the make-up I use for Harley is alcohol based, so despite my scrubbing, you can still see a white hue to my face (especially around the eyes). If I had not been wearing a wig, I had tons of white in my hair, so I looked like an old lady.
When I arrived, everyone had just ordered. I had looked at the menu online in advance, so I quickly placed my order when the waiter came by, so my food arrived with all of the rest. There were a lot of new people at this meet-up, because one of our Mods had had a panel about our group at Anime Milwaukee (a convention), the previous weekend. It was also my friends first Lolita Meet-Up. She was supposed to go to some earlier in the month, but they had been cancelled due to weather and availability.
Skirt: Dream of Lolita replica of Alice and the Pirates “Melty Mermaid.”
Blouse: ICK by IndustrialKitty
The flower is from a local girl as well, I received it at the Mega Meet last year.
Everything else is off-brand.
A note on the skirt, this was the second time I attempted to order something from Dream of Lolita, the first item having been cancelled when it took too long. This skirt took a long time too, and I am done trying to buy things from Dream of Lolita. The skirt itself is not bad though. The fabric is pretty thick, though maybe a little rough. And I feel like it is a little small at the hem, but otherwise I really like it. I would like to one day acquire the actual AatP version, but until I have some more freedom with my funds, this will do.
When we were standing around talking afterwards, Janette pulled a box out and was handing out items, I forgot that I was waiting on a blouse from a group order, so I received a new blouse this week too. I was worried about the neckline, but I really like the blouse, and I cannot wait to wear it.
