The First Four Years


    In two weeks I will be graduating from Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in Illustration. Four years can really fly by! College has changed a lot of things for me, as it does for many people. Ended relationships, added tattoos, lost about a foot and a half of hair, and met some of the best people in the world.
    Freshman year I joined my local lolita community. I'd dabbled in lolita before that but hadn't really fully embraced The Frill until I found Maryland Grandeur (now Charm City Lolitas). My first meet up was at the Natural History Museum in DC (and to think, I almost didn't go because of the snow). I didn't know anyone, but a group that was carpooling there was kind enough to get in touch with me beforehand. Little did I know I'd end up living with two of them! Everyone was so kind and welcoming and I immediately felt right at home. I remember at the end of the meet Evan saying to me he hoped I wouldn't move away after college, and I was like "But why, you just met me!" and he and Kelley were like "So?". Well, the jokes on them, I moved into their basement.
    I've made so many friends because of my community. I've had so many great experiences. I've lost so much space in my closet. I wouldn't trade you guys for the world.
So here is a photo collection of my first four fabulous years as a lolita.
