Otakon 2012: Revenge of the Frill

Well, the aftermath of Otakon has simmered down. It wasn't my most eventful year, honestly, I wasn't even committed to going until 3 hours before pre-registration closed. So I didn't have any cosplays lined up or time to buy part of a new outfit, but it was fun weekend nonetheless.
The first day, Friday, I was going to the EGL tea party, which was gothic themed this year. So I opted to wear Alice and The Pirate's Beauty and the Rose Promise, which I hadn't gotten out of the closet since nearly this time last year.


JSK: Beauty and the Rose Promise by Alice and The Pirates
Parasol: Alice and the Pirates
Purse: Putumayo
Boots: Bordello
Tights: Sock Dreams

 The tea party was a nice little lolita event, considering Otakon was definitely lacking in programs for the frillies this year. There was a little gift exchange, and a decent selection of teas and light food. Whenever I go to a formal tea, I am always interested to see what can be made into a tiny sandwich.

Later that night was the fashion show. It was a smaller event this year, and was missing my favorite American designer, Morrigan NYC, sadly. But it definitely was run much more smoothly and was still a good show. I was particularly fond of I Do Declare and Haenuli's designs.



On Saturday, I decided to brighten things up a bit and go for a bittersweet look (quite similar to the one I posted here!)


 JSK: DoL Fantastic Dolly Replica
Cardigan: Sourpuss Clothing
Purse: Cambridge Satchel Co.
Boots: Bodyline
Tights: eBay

 I didn't really go to many panels Saturday, mostly shopped Artist's Alley and hung out with friends. There was so much lovely deco jewelry, it was very difficult to contain myself. Somehow, I managed to not spend all my money in the face of purple accessories.



Sunday was just a short "see everyone and everything one last time", so I abandoned my hair extensions and wore a comfy kodona-ish outfit.

Hat: Hats in the Belfrey
Vest, shirt: TJ Maxx
Bow: Bodyline 
Bloomers: Handmade
Shoes: Bodyline
Purse: Putumayo
Bloomers are the best pants now. I've been wear bloomers with opaque tights are casual wear ever since c:
I've still got so many photos from meetup and such to dump this month! And my roommates and I are currently setting up an Etsy store to sell our handmade jewelry and hats so, expect to be spammed with spookygoods soon, darlings!
