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
