It's such a shame that this community never really took off. Since the Friday of Otakon was Lolita-tastic I thought it'd be fun to record it for this community. Friday was the first day of the convention and I spent it in line for the Dealers' Room to catch some MaruiOne goodies and then the "Ultimate Lolita Fashion Show". I hope everyone enjoys and we get to see some other fun days as well! DSC02247

I am not a morning person. But CARPE BURANDO! She who is slow, gets nothing at MaruiOne.

DSC02224
Ugh, mornings SUCK.

DSC02225DSC02226DSC02228DSC02229DSC02227
All those morning type things...

DSC02230
Yea, I look pretty good. Theme of this outfit: GET OUT OF MY WAY. SHOPPING=SERIOUS BUSINESS

DSC02231
Tea is important. Beyond important. It is essential.

DSC02233
Time check, running a little late! >_<

DSC02235
Double check the list for today. Am I the only person who can't do anything without a list?

DSC02236
Getting ready with Rebecca. We're so pretty...

DSC02238
Oh yea, ready to go!

DSC02240
We stop at Chick-Fil-A for breakfast. Mmmm

DSC02241
B-more! WASSUP!?

DSC02242
Waiting in line so that we can... wait in line. This stank.

DSC02243
Time check! We're sitting in line, totally near the front. Dealers' Room opens at noon! Weee....

DSC02244
It's sad when the only cosplayers I recognize are the really obvious ones. This one was really cute though and they had a lot of details on the back which I thought was a nice touch.

DSC02245
Still in line, but the natives are getting restless. Almost there!

DSC02246
They let us down the stairs and promptly shut the door! ACK! LET ME IN!

DSC02247
SUCCESS! There was much grabbing and shopping. I am very poor now. T_T

DSC02250
I got to take some pictures in the booth though I wish this coordinate could have been on the Street Snap site. :/

DSC02251
I get to eat tian_shi. She's just such a cute cupcake!!

DSC02253
Time check and I'm checking out the program guide while I wait for the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon panel. Oh yea, I'm a dork and do not care.

DSC02254
The panel wasn't actually as fun as I thought it would be. :( Oh well, it was still funny at least.

DSC02257
Hubby was nice enough to bring me lunch while I was in the panel room. Mmm...

DSC02258
Time check and time to change!

DSC02259
Looking sweet! Someone has to prove that black/white is not for noobs!

DSC02261
We watch some Case Closed while we wait for the Lolita panel.

DSC02263
More lines! This one is for the Lolita fashion show. Notice all the frilly?

DSC02267
Hey look! It's ugly_kitties!

DSC02283
Models! I would have taken more individual shots, but models need to learn to pause for the paparazzi.

DSC02287
And Pedobear showed up.... creepy...

DSC02288
I think this is when the inane filler questions started.

DSC02289
Time check and back in the car on the way home. Early night, yey!

DSC02291
We stopped at the Baja for dinner. In all my Lolita glory. I did not care. I was STARVING!

DSC02292
MMMMMMM!!!!!

DSC02295
Hubby and me!

DSC02296
Time check back at home!

DSC02297
Check out my awesome brand swag! Two JSKs, a matching tote, hair ties, and socks. I also got a black half bonnet.

DSC02298
Decided to change back into this morning's pjs while I wait for my turn in the shower. Guests first!

DSC02301
I also did some light reading in the con booklet.

DSC02302DSC02303DSC02304DSC02306
The evening routine. Does anyone else have one of these paraffin wax spas? Amazing stuff. I decided to melt the wax because I just knew my feet were going to need some TLC after this weekend.

DSC02309
Clean me, clean pjs!

DSC02310
This is what I find when I get out of the bathroom. My best friend and my husband! Together! Playing Rock Band! T_T WHYYY? They actually weren't doing too bad.

DSC02311
I decide to pack up my change of clothes for tomorrow.

DSC02312
Late night snack, the Tama-kun Special: turkey meatballs and rice! It's actually the only thing that my hubby knows how to really cook.

DSC02313
I decide to hang out and watch some TV. I have no idea why Squidward is sad. He makes me sad now though. :(

DSC02315
Eventually I pass out in the living room and decide to go to bed. Good night!

Thank you! Chick-fil-A rocks, but I'd still trade one for a Sonic or a Whataburger. T_T

Haha, so funny because I've never tried all three XD! Though all the Sonic commercials on TV drive me crazy, cause I really want to eat there...

I've driven to another state for Sonic. Totally worth it! They show the commercials here too even though there isn't one anywhere near us. Cruel. Especially once you've had the Cherry Limeaide. Mmm...

I'm going to write a memo to myself to search out a Sonic the next time I'm on the mainland :).

They have a handy website that will track one down for you. That's how we found ours. ^_^

It really is a blast every year. The older I get and the more low-key I make it, the more fun it gets.

I hope I start a trend of posting. ^_^

Thank you for posting! You scored some really awesome stuff (red ♥)! And you look adorable in your black x white coordinate!

I'd be totally lost without lists (especially at a con!). And like you, I simply can't start my day without caffeine (though I take mine in Starbucks form). Mmm, I love meatballs and rice...

Thank you!

Yey for lists! And for caffeine! I would like Starbucks more if they treated tea with respect. Sadly, they do not. Though they have some yummy scones and things.

Conventions look like fun but also to tiring.

Yea I was lucky that I could coordinate all one color. Now I feel like I need red shoes though. WAAHH!! :(

They are both fun and tiring, but so worth it!
