I am a college student at Indiana University in Bloomington Indiana, and classes start around August 22nd for me! Oh no!
I really, really want to have a Lolita meet up with some of you before school starts again!
Here is my plan:
When: Sunday, August 12th 2012
Time: 10:30AM - 4:00PM
What: Tea House Lunch
How much: I need a head count to make a reservation to get a price estimate
Where: Fishers, Indiana
If there is any interest at all please post here~!
Also I you have any other idea for what to do in Fishers, let me know!
(I am from Bloomington, Indiana, but I picked Fishers because of the cute Tea House :P)
I would love to talk with you some more if you are interested!
I will be a sophomore at IU this fall.
Yeah college Lolitas!
Anyway, here is my contact info if you would like:
Hope to hear from you!
Sorry if I seem too forward ヽ(；▽；)ノ
at this moment they don't have any suggestions of local hotels near or transportation. but i am wondering if anyone would be interested in rooming together to help spread the cost?
I'll keep sign ups open until HALLOWEEN - OCTOBER 31, at which point I will email all of those who have registered their assigned recipient. After that, you will have until Saturday, Nov 19 to send out your gift. If for some reason you run into a road block (you ordered something and it melted in the post, or you were hospitalized after being attacked by squirrels) *please*, email me (thelonebamf @ gmail.com) and let me know. We'll work something out. I don't want anyone to feel left out or forgotten, but I know that sometimes things happen that are just outside of our control. Just communicate!
After you receive your gift, please take some photos and share them with us here on the community. The hope is that this exchange will generate some activity for all of us here in the community! ^_^ Yaaay!
Okay, enough chit chat- let's get down to business! Here's the form!
Sign up! Do it! Yeah!
I'm interested in starting a lolita related blog, but as I've started to poke around, I see that there are several out there already. I'm a fan of some of them (I particularly like F-Yeah Lolita) just because of their frank nature and they way that they provide information to people who are both new and veterans in the fashion.
So my question to you is- what kind of blogs would you be interested in seeing? What kind of EGL experience would you like to see someone write about? Do you like "challenge" blogs (where someone sets up a task they plan to accomplish in a set period of time and then blogs about their progress)? Do you prefer straight information? Do you like more narrative? What attracts you to someone's blog? Pictures? Funny stories?
A little about me and my strengths/things I could actually write about-
I've been involved in the EGL community for almost 10 years. My friends and I discovered the fashion around 2002 or so, and started looking in to it- making some terrible Ita dresses with enthusiasm as our guide. However, we did successfully host several events at conventions as well as lolita centric photoshoots with the help of a photographer friend of ours. However, I didn't really own any lolita pieces that hadn't been made on my own (and somewhat poorly at that, haha) until very recently.
I am a cook, and I love to bake. My favorite lolita events were always tea parties. I like planning out menus and coming up with cute presentations (when I'm able to). I have a couple of go-to recipes for these sorts of events, but I don't usually have as much time as I'd like to experiment.
I'm a plus size lolita- which presents its own challenges (I tend to seek out replicas and original custom size pieces). Admittedly, I'm looking to adopt some better exercise habits and stuff. ^_^;;
I'M OLD. Haha, it just seems like I'm older than the average loli, even though I have definitely come across a few girls here and there that are older than I am, I'm 28 which definitely puts me in the "vintage" spectrum of things. XD I just need to start to groom my tastes to something a little more classic. But... I love cupcakes and food prints! XD
Anyways- I was just wondering if I could pick your brains. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!
Are you interested in doing a Lolita-themed exchange with other Indiana Lolis?
Should we try to make this a Midwest event, or just keep it to Indiana girls?
If you participated in the exchange, what sort of items would you hope to receive?
What would make you most likely to participate in a gift exchange like this?
If anyone has any comments or suggestions, I would love to hear them. According to my last inquiry about this, it seemed as though we had five or so people interested. I'd love to get that number up, so if there is something I can do to make this exchange more inviting, please let me know!
