Hi! Sorry I missed my usual Friday's Finds post. I spent most of this weekend studying for my online Algebra class and hanging out at A-Kon here in Dallas. I was there all day Friday and most of Saturday. I was hoping on making myself a lolita outfit, but because of school and work I was unable to. I ended up throwing on my good old Kimono. This is only the second time I wore it and I was really happy to receive endless compliments on it. I even had at least 10 strangers take pictures of me! They all seemed really surprised that the kimono was handcrafted by me. I left feeling MEGA proud of sewing skills!
The hotel had a real oriental feel to it, so I excidedly posed with this 16th century changing/dressing screen? I'm not really sure what they're called. Unfortunately, I had left in such a hurry that I left my camera at home, so all pictures are taken with my iphone unless noted differently.
I ran into the cutest lolita and had to take my picture with her! I wish you could see the tights she was wearing and the all the small details on her dress. I loved all her rings, hair accessories, and even the buttons under her eyes! For Afest I will make sure to make myself a lolita outfit.
I even saw Ryuk! My favorite character from my favorite anime, Death Note.
Oh and I even saw Donna from Casa Noir Photography, she took all my photos from my film noir inspired shoot!
