Skating + Christmas Meetups

Soo, two weeks ago (has it really been that long?) my lovely local ladies had a surprisingly large meet hosted by Miss Kirsten, with many new faces. It was quite a success, I'd say. We ate at a neat little cafe in the city called Chocolatea, and then moved onto making fools of our frilly selves ice skating. I used to skate all the time as a kid (being that I'd from Detroit), but my goodness, I am really out of practice.

JSK: Surface Spell
Bolero: Offbrand

You can also see that I cut my hair! I did it the night before in one of my fellow loli's apartments. I've had long but thin hair most of my life, and frankly I just got sick of it. I haven't had hair this short since I was in 2nd grade. It's a huge change for me, but I rather like it.

The next week, several of my lolita friends and I decided to crash a NoVA/Northern Virginia meet-up! It was a yummy Christmas-themed tea party. The tea was delicious and the VA lolitas were wonderful as always. We need to come down and visit them more often! Afterwards, we went to a sushi place in DC with a few more friends.

JSK: Angelic Pretty

I hope all my dear readers had a wonderful holiday <3

Art Post: Happy Lolidays!

 This year, the winter holidays have really sprung up on me! I'm hoping to cram in as much holiday nonsense as I can this week- baking, decorating, shopping for gifts. I am terribly behind.
Yesterday, to kick things off, I went to Christmas themed tea party meet up (post to come!), and tomorrow I am going to go set up the loli-tree at my friends' apartment.
I hope you're all enjoying the holiday season, whatever your traditions are. And I hope that those of you in college as well are surviving your finals! I just barely got out of mine alive ;^;
But, anyhow, here is a holiday-themed lolita drawing I did for one of my finals!

In my class, we had a "secret santa" assignment, where you wrote a custom assignment for another classmate. For me, someone wrote "Design a holiday/winter themed EGL outfit and do a lifestyle illustration of it". Perfect!
I'm not terribly used to drawing digitally, but I'm slowly getting the hang of it. Playing around with the pattern and colored lines was super fun. I'd love to do a little series of Imai Kira inspired drawings.
I also have several other sketches and outfit designs that didn't get realized this time.

and some "lifestyle" sketches...

Also, in art-related news- I did the cover for a French magazine, Parceque! :D
