Best Birthday (So Far)

Hi dolls,

As I had mentioned before, yesterday was a very special day I've been looking forward to with excitement: Not only was it my 21. Birthday, but we had also planned a Lolita meet-up! I was determinated to make it a great day, and so it was (^.^).
We met unusally early in St.Gallen and went shopping first, because the shops would be closing at half past noon. We went to Bambola Schläpfer, a fabric store where they sell the most expensive and most amazig fabrics I've ever seen. Afterwards, we went to the factory store of Bischoff Texil, where they sell beautiful lace trims and fabrics a lot cheaper, since it's partly rejects and rests, but nevertheless worth a visit!
Then, after noon, we went to pick up the rest of the group who didn't want to get up that early respectively weren't interested in going to the stores. We had lunch and took some pictures at the abbey of St.Gallen, before the little light that was left would disappear. In the end, we finally went to the textile museum. The exhibition was breathtaking (and very inspiring).
I was happy everything went (more or less) according to plan, and I think we all enjoyed the day, despite of the very cold, undfriendly weather (at least, it wasn't raining). It was great to see so many beautiful Lolitas, especially some I haven't seen for a while or got to know for the first time. It's always fun how we communicate in a mixture of German, French and English, since we have attendands from every part of Switzerland and even from abroad!

But now, enough of the blabber, here come the pictures! (^.^) As announced, I wore my Sugary Carnival OP for the first time, I was so happy!

And a bonus pic: I was quite happy with my make-up that day, unfortunately I totally forgot to take a picture of it until I was in the train heading home after a long day. So it's probably not the best photo, but just for the record (^.-)

Polymanga 2013

Hello my dear readers,

every year on Easter weekend, the Polymanga takes place, an anime and manga convention. It's very popular in the French-speaking part of Switzerland and France, but almost unknown in the rest of Switzerland, unfortunately. Aya, who had been attending it last year, and I decided to go there Sunday and Monday. The convention was held in Montreux this year. It's a really beautiful city, just on the the lakeside. It's just quite a journey to go there, for me a train ride of 2.5 hours. Nevertheless, it was very fun, being with my dear friend Aya and also meeting a lot of people, some of whom I knew before and also new ones (^.^)

There were a lot of amazing cosplays and other great-looking people, but I actually didn't take many pictures. So instead, I'm just going to show you what I was wearing. I decided to go in Lolita both days.
On Sunday, I wore my new corset:

Besides the usual activites, there were also a lot of shopping stands. Although I didn't have a lot of money to spend, I couldn't resist when I saw these cuties:

The five dolls from Rozen Maiden as keyring pendants! They're so cute (*.*) I love the tiny details, such as the hairstyles!
I hope you had a pleasant Easter weekend too! Did you do something special? I'd love to hear (^.-)
