Hello everybody! :)

My name is Taryn and for this years Anime Mid-Atlantic I am possibly doing a Gothic Lolita panel. I have already talked to the Vice Conchair and he and are working things out. If this happens it will probably be on Friday of the con sometimes during the afternoon.

I just wanted to ask if there are any people attending who have a gothic lolita outfit and if they do, would they like to help. I wanted to have a mini fashion show/display at the very end and just wanted to have as many examples as possible! If you are interested please just post below!

This will include, Elegant Gothic Lolita (Gothic or Sweet), Elegant Gothic Aristocrat, Kimono Lolita, Punk/Industrial Lolita, French Maid Lolita, J-rock cosplay, Paradise Kiss cosplay, Chobits cosplay, etc.

I will update this entry as I find out more. Thanks!

Taryn :heart:

Ahhh! Yeah. Any help is great! I still am waiting to hear from the Vice Conchair about what day and time the panel will be at. So as soon as he gets back to me I will try and PM all of you and let you know the details.

Anyone want to do a photoshoot on this day as well?

How about a photoshoot and a teaparty?

I'm all about the teaparties.

I :heart: Tea.

Oooo! I'd be all about that. I don't know if we can do it in the Panel room but if we wanted to have like a Tea Party in the Lobby or something, that would be cool.

I think a photo shoot would be awesome as well. Probably do it just right after the the Panel on Friday. I still haven't heard about what time it will be at. I'll post it as soon as I find out.

You just said the magic words, that the panel is on Friday. I was so scared it was gonna be on Sat and I would be busy with cosplay stuff, lol.
I'm all for a tea party, just like Riji, I'm all about some tea parties, lol.

As I remember from last year, there are definitely a couple places we could have it. Plus since it's on Friday it's easier to get food there.

I think a panel, followed by a photoshoot, followed by a teaparty would be quite lovely. :)

I agree! I can contact the con staff and ask them if there is anyway we can have a room for a tea party. Maybe we can get some cake with our tea! Oooo lovely! Very excited.

More updates to come!!

P.S. Anyone just reading this thread who is new or who has volunteered to help, please PM me with your name and tell me about your outfit so I can just get a general idea or who is helping. Thanks!

Erotic and Cyber-wa Lolita: (Not common or worn in public in Japan)
http://www.catsmeowcosplay.org/erotic.jpg
http://www.catsmeowcosplay.org/cyberlolita.jpg Actually, not sure what this looks like. Pretty much just very sexy sexy lolita outfits.

Industrial/Punk Lolita:

Other:

http://www.catsmeowcosplay.org/maid.jpg
Just other types of Lolita outfits that are out there.

If you are dressing up from Visual Kei bands then that is most likely Lolita as well. If you are wearing cosplay from Chii or Paradise Kiss, they have Gothic Lolita inspired outfits as well.

Hope this helps out people!

Most of these images you will see again as I will be using them for my Panel. :)

You forget that we're both wearing Mana at the same time, which means that I still won't be where your boobies would be. :thumbsup:
