I was so excited when I found this community! That is, until I saw the date of the last post. -sigh- I knew it was too good to be true. That's just my luck.

Been a while! [14 Jan 2012|01:27pm]

Wondering if everyone is doing all alright after the first real snow of winter!

School for me starts next week, and I hope to wear lolita to school for most of the time.  If you happen across the CR campus of Kirkwood, you may or may not see me!  Not only am I one of the rare females in the CS classes, I'll be in frilly dresses!

Also hoping to get a meet up set up sometime soon!  Anyone free next Sunday? (22nd)  Coffee?  Gelato?  :)!

Tea Party In Iowa City [19 Aug 2011|09:32pm]

elysiumtan
[ mood | bouncy ]

This is just a feeler post to see if anyone would be interested in attending a tea party in Iowa City.  I went out for lunch today and realized there is a cafe here that offers afternoon tea.  It's 15 dollars per person and comes with fresh scones, two kinds of finger sandwiches, a mini-cake, a truffle and a pot of tea.  The place I'm talking about is called the Leaf Kitchen, which is found by Aero Rental and the Pit Stop.  The atmosphere is pretty cute (I really like it, though my husband remarked that it seemed "scenester-ish").  It's local when it can be, and I believe they offer vegan and gluten free alternatives.


You can find their website here.



I would most likely set this little shindig during the weekend, and its only offered at 1-3 PM.  So if you are interested do tell : )

I wanted to say it was really neato to see that many Lolitas in one place!  I didn't say hello to anyone, sadly.  I was all pimped out in cosplay and was afraid to scare the lolitas away!

I was happy to see sooooo many people come out for the panel (even if half the room was a cheering section for one of the models lol... it's better then it being completely empty!) please let me know what you thought about the panel! It was my first time doing it and I was a bit nervous but I thought it went well, there were LOTS of really good questions!

I am kicking around the idea of doing another panel next year but making it a sewing/crafting panel for lolita. I might even ask KMK, Be My Full Moon and Scoundrelles Keep to be there and answer sewing questions :) and then doing a tutorial for easy accessories to craft. :)

QC Meet-Up Feeler! July 3 [20 Jun 2011|09:02pm]

lehulei
Location: Quad Cities IA/IL.

A few of us were talking about getting together for an afternoon picnic at Vander Veer Botanical Gardens on Sunday, July 3 followed by the Red, White, & Boom! Riverfront Festival (complete with fireworks) in the evening.

Any interest? Any specific times that work better for anyone? I was thinking 2-6 for the first half, then 6-? for the riverfront fest (festival starts at 6, fireworks begin at 9:30).

I've can fit 6 other people in my SUV if we need rides from the train station in Galesburg.

I've never been to the QC fireworks show, so if anyone has and can share experiences, feel free! (Is one side of the river better? What time should we start "reserving" our seats? They shoot them off from the RIA, right?)

Iowa State University [30 May 2011|05:59pm]

Hello! I hope this appropriate, but...

I'm considering transferring to Iowa state university. Does anyone here live in or near Ames, Iowa or go to ISU? Do you enjoy it? What kind of things are there to do in the town? Are there lolitas here and do you meet up often?
(Some non lolita questions) Good fine dining restaurants?  Are they friendly? I'm German American and sometimes have a few quirks of my mother's and I have been made fun of in the past, would this be an issue at ISU? Are they open minded to LGTBQ  students?

Quad Cities Meet-Up Feeler Post [26 Apr 2011|01:39pm]

Hi Ladies!

I was thinking we should get together sometime soon.

What would people be interested in? In general, when's the best days x times for people to get together?

A few random ideas:

Niabi Zoo? They have 1/2 Priced Tuesdays, as well as a variety of special events like "Breakfast with Animals" and "Movies on the Lawn" about once per month. Coal Valley.

QC Botanical Gardens? The Butterfly Exhibit runs June 19*-September 30. There's a Garden Party fundraiser on June 23, as well as a Wonderland Tea on July 31* Rock Island.

Vander Veer Botanical Gardens? Davenport.

Butterworth Center - Also has gardens. It has an annual event called the Blossoms at Butterworth on June 26th which I think could be fun as a loli-meet, but it's my best friend's birthday so I'll have to see if we're celebrating that day or another :) Moline.

Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland is making a 3D appearance at the Imax at the Putnam from April 29-June 16th. Davenport.

Has anyone been to Friedas European Bakery & Tea Room? That's always a possibility, too! Open Tues-Sat until 2:30 p.m. East Moline.

*For Reference, QC Anime-Zing is June 17-19 & Anime Iowa is July 29-31 for those who are planning on attending, I'm not sure what lolita-related activities are planned for those conventions at this point.

Anime Iowa 2011 [08 Apr 2011|10:10am]

ladygigis
[ mood | bouncy ]

So I am not sure who is going to Anime Iowa this year but I thought I would let you all know about the fun Lolita stuff going on! I am pretty sure our panels will be accepted because it's been a few years since we had one. I will update thought if it is not.

Lolita Tea Party
Join us for tea, snacks and games! All are welcome to attend :) - if this is a panel you will need a badge though
-We will be doing a Frilly Pink Elephant exchange! Bring in a tea cup to give to someone else and take a new one home! The only rules are that it has to be in good working order, otherwise if you bring one you will get to take one home! (You can find one at a second hand store/garage sale)

Lolita Photo Shoot
-Saturday 11:30am in the Library - this is open to all as it is not apart of the AI programming

Lovely Lolita Lodestar
This panel will be dedicated to those who want to learn more about Lolita, we will include a wide variety of information for new and veteran Lolitas concluding with a fashion show of different styles (if you are going and would like to participate in the fashion show please let me know!)

**EDIT**

Both panels were accepted! If you plan on going to the tea party and have not let me know on the AI forums then please let me know here, if you have any dietary requirments also let me know so I can have food properly labeled. And if you would like to be in the fashion show then let me know!

Hello [31 Mar 2011|10:29am]

ladygigis
Hi I am GIgi, I live in Cedar Rapids. I have a one year old daughter and I am pretty much a stay at home mom! :) Which means I have plenty of time to bake ;) I have made myself three skirts and I have one blouse... I need a petti though and hopefully this summer will be ordering one from F+F. I love reading, I play WoW and.... I can't think of anything else...?

OH! I put in for a panel at Anime Iowa for beginning Lolitas and for a Tea Party - hopefully both will be accepted and we will have a good turnout! Anyone else going this summer?
