View Full Version : Elegant Gothic Lolita tea party?

Jess the Kitty and I discussed this a little in the "what are you wearing?" thread, but perhaps it may not be a bad idea to set a time and arrange it a little.

Perhaps this way, maybe some of you might be convinced to toss on those EGA/EGL or similarly themed outfits for an hour or two!=) I know that a lot of us have them! (maybe it is just my selfish desire to have an invasion of the lace ruffles...of DOOM)

I figure we don't have to overdo it, but I don't think we need all that much more than a nice blanket and a tea set(I believe someone mentioned being able to bring one...I will have to look again and check!) and whatever other things you think necessary.

Anyway, how does 1:00pm sound?

Count me in...I am doing a Egl cosplay set wiht my little sis (10) who is like truly lolita. I can check if we have a tea set or not.

That sounds great.

(I'm really shy, so I'm glad that you're into this too, Duck. :thumbsup: )

I can probably find a blanket or two to bring.
And some stuffed animals, aha.


I also have oodles of tea, but I don't know how I'd actually get hot water. hee. ^^;


(maybe I should get a 12 pack of Brisk ice tea so we can pretend? or maybe even make sun tea! oh dear. XD)

Yay! I'm really looking forward to this. =)

I can manage to get water to a boil in my rice cooker.=)

You all rock.

I can bring a blanket to sit on(well...not a terribly lolitaesque one, but...it'll do...) and I'll try to obtain some "cute" looking foods.=) I've been making little treat bags for my friends lately, so maybe I'll make some small ones for people who're dressed lolita-esque at the tea party...well, I guess it's more like a tea picnic.=)

Still waiting for confirmation on a tea set...do you have one, Clueless Case? If you did, it would be totally awesome!

I am interested in doing an EGL thing as well. Is that still on for this Saturday? I would love to join you guys! ^_^

I don't think I'll be bringing a costume, so EGL it is~! I have an original Valentine lolita, so don't mind me for being a bit bright and red. =P

duck
04-15-2004, 01:07 PM
Yay! Brightness!=)

Yep, Saturday at 1:00 is the vaguely planned time. I figure that we'll all sorta find each other(It can't be that hard...look for the floofy things!).

My original idea was to do a little bo peep esque outfit, complete with sheep. I've now gone into "forgetitidon'tcare" mode and am sticking with the traditional black.

I would like to take a picture with all the EGL's & J-rock costumes if there's a gathering, so we could do a picture I do sometimes at cons that involve a large group of J-rock cosplayers: Eurobeat & J-rock unite together!! :rockon: That'll be fun! ;)

Cool then! I'll see you guys at the picnic. I'll bring my "special friend" who will be in her EGL finest as well. ^_^

I think, since it looks like I'll be able to go afterall, I wouldn't mind throwing together an EGA outfit (I'm not a convincing loli =_=).

Oi, Cosplaygal, if your special friend is who I think she is, I should bring mine too. ^___^

Heya Claire! If you need help putting together an outfit together, let me help you!!! ^_^

Please bring your "special friend" too! Heeeeeeeeeeeee!!! :bigtu:

Yay! Well, I think we should all be able to find each other pretty easily. I'll try to be there by 12.

Hmmm...well, I'll try to hunt down a tea set...but if I can't find one, at least we have a gathering and Eurobeat King can take some pictures of the swarm of lolitas of DOOM.

Hehe...when Lolitas attack...

I don't know what EGL to wear to the party...frilly super girly red and pink or a more gothic black and blue one.....AHH!!!

It'd be fun to set up some sweetlolita v.s gothic lolita pictures.=)

I wish I coulda taken more pictures of EGL people :lost: but nooo...ran outta film. My friend went insane though when she saw the girl who had the Mana Shop Unbriella...that was hella cool actually...

I think I'll be joinning you guys next year, if there is a next year, for some kinda ELG cosplay. I'm planning out a Hora cosplay (From Schwarz Stein) :rockon:

Jess the Kitty
04-18-2004, 01:09 AM
There will definitely be more loliness next year. *pokepokepokesduck*

There's also an AX 04 loli gathering but I didn't organize that so I'm not sure about the details.


Hopefully the next picnic will have less rain and more tea.

Why wait until next year to get together again??? If there's going to be a GL meet-up at AX, I *might* end up tempted into going, if I can find the details on it, but I want to be able to get together with the rest of you Lolipops other times too! I have been thinking that there should be some sort of on-line community for Lolis in the Southern California area so that we can share info and plan outings and the like, but what do you guys think would be the best method of doing that? A Live Journal? A Yahoo!Group? Other? I would personally definately like to stay in touch, so please give me your input and let me know if you'd like to help set something like that up! ^-^ Hope to see you guys again soon!

Maybe I should start up a website and see who joins?

EGL West Coast Clubbu or something? with a BBS?

Or a livejournal'd be good, too.

A website would be awesome. I always meant to make one, but I have so little time to maintain a page and not enough spare money to buy any sort of domain name, so I never have... I started designing graphics for it once, with plans to have two versions of the same basic site, one themed in black and blue for Gothic Lolitas that you reached through clicking on a picture of Mana dressed as a black angel, and one themed white and pink for Sweet Lolitas that would be reached by clicking on Aya in his white angle costume... The over all theme was going to be Angels as I'm based out of Los Angeles myself... If you wanted to take on a website though, I'd be more than happy to give in-put and help out with event and program planning, etc. And some of my other friends who didn't attend the picnic would too. Just let me know! ^_^

Oh, I meant next year's picnic! But I definitely want to hang out sooner than that.

I would LOVE to get together again, and pick Morgen's brain for all the good shopping places.=) Although, I'm a thrift shopper myself...it would have fun to have a "reconstruction/alteration sewing day".

A LJ community would be the best bet, I think, since I think a lot of us already use it.

Websites tend to fall by the wayside and get forgetten about, but if any one of you want to make a website related to this cause, I have webspace that I can host on with subdomains (like gothypoo.oddhatter.net ...I wish I could use sheepofdoom.com as a subdomain...but alas...)

I'll create both. :D But a livejournal is good for now. I hope you don't mind me being all .. create-y.

My domain is kitty-ears.net, I've got a gig of space and tons of bandwidth so it's no problem.

What I'm wondering is what we'll call ourselves? And the LJ name?

That is a concern, hm... We definately have to make sure it caters to both Sweet and Gothic lolis, but I think we should try to be more creative than just "So Cal Lolis" or something like that... But I am very glad people are interested in getting something started! Ever since I got into this segment of the Gothic style I've been dreaming of shopping trips, sewing circles and tea parties. ^_^ Thank you so much for being so create-y, Jess! <3

PATH might sound kind of religious, but it also reminds me of the Kera article features called "Grand Glass" because it was always followed by the phrase "Lolita Path or Pass for Lolita?" I always liked the title "Grand Glass" though, I was going to steal it for my original website design idea that I told you about before, as it would sort of have an inverted mirror image feel...
