A good weekend

So here is my write up for the Lolita In Wonderland Event!

It was a very nice venue and the decorations everywhere were really nice, I liked the parasols and the lights, it had a very nice feel to it and the little photoshoot area was cute and pretty alice themed.

There was lots of cute things t o see and buy.







The food and drink was very loli themed and nice, not too over priced either.


There was a lolita panel which was fun to listen to, it was allot of loli basics, some history and a Q & A all girls did a great job and it was interesting to watch and listen to.



There was a cute quirky fashion show too which was awesome to watch and had some cute clothes.



It was a fun day and I enjoyed it allot but I think the next one could be a little more 'lolita' themed. Like a old fashioned lolita fashion show maybe to show off the substyles as yes there were allot of loli's who knew all that already but there was allot of people new to it and would have liked to know more about allt he styles.

I think traders should have been easyer to find, close to the stuff they were selling. I think next time more lolita things would be good and maybe a few more traders, I also think a massive sign outside would help as a fair few people got a little lost.

All in all I give it a 4/5

Pixie's Mini Review!

I thought Lolita in Wonderland went very well considering the time and effort put into it. Well done Alex for hosting this!
There were great late night performances, a insightful lolita panel, two interesting catwalks, a few lolita accessory/ clothes sections, fine art, illustrations and other types of exhibits in this one single event dedicated to celebrating the Lolita culture and fashion.

Drinks and desserts were greatly prepared, staff were friendly and there were quite a turn out from lolitas outside of London!
It would've been lovely to have most of the lolitas stay for the late evening shows because there were a few people that came for the evening events that I know would've loved to see the others that left.

I thought the Photo Booth section was very popular as obviously everyone that dressed up would like to have their pictures taken!
I was hoping to get lots more pictures myself but didn't so I have to rely on other people to take pictures of me XD I will share some of my decent looking pictures and since it's my review thread I'll post more Tania orientated visuals.

First Catwalk:
I'm the middle pink one as 'Bunny Bride'


Second Catwalk:
Me as 'Alice'


One of my wooden dolls exhibit:


Sword Play Performance:


Self Suspension (Alex/Boykitten);


Syban's Performance:


My personal suggestion for the next event would be focusing more on selling and trading lolita/loliable clothes and accessories, which meant less preparation from a single person (Alex) and have everybody chip in as they will be selling their brands (or offbrand) stuff

There was only one big glitch that I noticed which was the raffle draw that never happened.
It was fun and I was knackered by the end of the night/early morning. 
Hope to see more reviews and pictures!
