My First Secret~

Well, I suppose this was bound to happen one day. I couldn't sleep last night so I got on Behind the Bows on my phone, and saw this:

I couldn't see the comments on my phone, so I dashed from my bed onto my computer to see what other awful things were being said about me. To sum it up, two people sorta defended me, but at the same time thought my stuff was still pretty ugly. This is basically why I tend to avoid the EGL community - I've been scared to death of something like this happening, and now it finally has. I suppose I'm sorta relieved that it did finally happen, but at the same time I still feel completely crushed.

Doesn't look like I'll be going back to sleep anytime soon...

Picnic Meet-Up~

So not counting Frill, this is my second local Lolita Meet-up! We actually planned this super soon after our first one, so I've been looking forward to this for a while. I recorded a short video on our way to the park: 

^Everything my bf is wearing is Elegy, aside from the socks (Hot Topic?), necklace (Ophanim, via Frill), boots (Demonia).

^Everything I'm wearing is Elegy, besides the shoes (Bodyline) and socks (Sockdreams) of course. Bag is the Special Edition Summer Lucky Pack Tote~

^I'm actually kind of confident in my make-up skills at this point, so here's a bonus make-up shot as well. I actually took these after the picnic, so my blush has sweated off, and things aren't as nice looking as before the meet. (Note to self: invest in lower lashes!) 

We decided to have a picnic at a local park, with everyone bringing a dish (baking not required, but encouraged <3). Of course I reserved the spot for cupcakes almost right away :p They're my favorite thing to bake, and the icing recipe I use is super light/fluffy and I couldn't wait for everyone to try them. Unfortunately, since it was so hot out, the icing did end up sorta melting by the end of the picnic, but they were super delicious in the beginning, haha.

Unfortunately, not everyone showed up who said they were going to (more for us :P), so most of what we had were sweets - but I'm not complaining! Everything was delicious, and special thanks to one thoughtful Lolita who brought along not only plates and napkins, but water as well! If she hadn't attended, we all would've dried out in the sun like all the dead grass that surrounded us x__x.

^Yum! :3

^Twins in their natural setting :P I actually wore my print in Licorice purposely, as I recently made the salopette version for my friend, on the off-chance that she'd wear it. Which she did :P Of course I didn't think of taking photos of us actually together though =__=;

^Lolis on the blanket...

^...and a random puppy appears!

^Our group <3 This meet was a total fail at taking photos. My bf actually took most of these, and this group photo was taken after 3 of the girls left :x 

Overall this was a fun meet, although it was super hot. There was also a terrible cover band playing in the gazebo area, which is where we had originally planned to host this. Apparently there was also supposed to be a swap, buuut most of the people didn't know that (myself included), so only 2 girls brought stuff. I actually ended up buying a pair of red Bodyline shoes~ No, I don't have any red atm, but I'm sure they'll come in handy for future coords <3

Independence Day Shoot & New Designs~

I'm so excited to finally be able to reveal these designs! This photo shoot has sorta been planned for about a month, and I laboriously brought these coords into existence a few weeks ago, over just a few days. This is my second time working with the gorgeous Miki Sarocca, and talented photographer Kendra Paige 

Obviously, these two coords were inspired by two All-American superheroes. These pieces are now available in my shop (and of course, come in a variety of colors)! More shots from this set will be uploaded HERE, as I get ahold of the photos.

Happy Independence Day, everyone~
