Hi, my dear readers ♥
I decided to no longer wait for photos from the Christmas meet-up´s photographer, because we will probably see them in spring or never =D And I don´t want to forget what I wanted to write about this event, so here we go - a report from Prague Christmas meet-up in January ! yay ♪
At first I thought this year for me the meet-up won´t be as hectic as the last year - when I was in the middle of moving to Germany. But I was wrong ...
Because of our new car we had to go to Prague in the morning on the day of the meet-up instead of the day before. So I had to wake up really early put on all the make-up, do my hair, dress up pretty and then sit three hours in a car and hope it will all stay the way I made it in the morning >_< oh, and don´t forget that I had to take some outfit photos in the morning as well =D
As the result I arrived at the meet-up two hours late, fortunatelly I didn´t miss anything from the program, BUT unfortunatelly I missed Han who was there just for the beggining and I we wanted to exchange our Christmas gifts there T_T
To my great dissapointment (joke!) I didn´t miss the introducing game >_< In which we had to talk about ourselves in front of everyone - EVERYONE STARRING at me ...and I didn´t have time to buy a glass of wine so I was just trembling and said something absolutely not funny and pheew...I´m happy I´m still alive ! =D (anxiety cat lvl. 9000 don´t forget about it!)
The next part of the program was "a concert" with piano and some singing...but...to tell the truth I didn´t like it at all. Girls who were playing acted like they were making fun of it and it was really uprofessional, more like a school performance...I think it was just unnecessary embarassment for them and second-hand embaressment for us.
Then I finally had my glass of wine (ha ha =D I´m not an alcoholic, I swear!) to calm my nerves and I started to enjoy the company of all the girls I haven´t seen in ages ♥ We exchanged all Christmas gifts and I got so many pretty things - you´ll see them at the end of the post ♪
After few hours was the announcment of winners of the drawing competition - which was a bit...strange. The prices sponsored by Porcelain Doll weren´t labelled which one is for which place =D so the first three with the biggest number of votes just won some random package...that wouldn´t be so weird if there weren´t only 5 participants... >_< I know it´s just for fun, I KNOW, but...! Some of us spent ages working on an entry and in the end it was more like - everyone who drew something gets a candy =D ...it just lost that "competition feeling"
Anyway I´m really happy that I was one of the three winners ! yay *_*
What was next...we probably talked and talked and talked, than there was some random singing and very spontaneous presentation of a new dress from Madame Muffin o_O
The meet-up was over very early, because some girls had to travel home and people wanted to take advantage of being in Prague with so many friends around - so before I left almost everyone I knew dissapeared to change into something more comfortable and went to a birthday party together. I would like to go as well, but we already had a plan with my boyfriend that we will use the oportunity of being in Czech Republic and went to see The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug in original sound with subtitles and NOT in 3D - which is a luxury we can´t afford in Ingolstadt =D (here is it only with German dubbing and in 3D)
About the movie.
The whole meet-up girls were telling me how horrible the movie is, how dissapointed I´m going to be and all this negative stuff. But they couldn´t spoil my expactations - I just LOVE everything about Middle-Earth - it can´t be THAT bad. (ok, I was a bit worried, but just a bit!)
And... I liked it ! There were some moments where I was a bit...how to say it...surprised ! It was probably because the movie was made for 3D, but in some scenes the CGI effects were just funny, like from some old fantasy game...and those weird water-camera shots in the barrels scene...?! o_o
But I really liked how the Mirkwood looked like - those spiders ewww !, the lake town was beautiful and Thranduil, of course, was a very nice part of the movie =3
Weird scenes which I would prefer not to have in the movie was the Tauriel/Kili romance, the moment when she healed him with Athelas exactly like Arwen did in Lotr...-_- ...whyy?? Why are they repeating things from Lotr like if they couldn´t think of anything new?! I also didn´t like the final scene...there was a lot of action, but it was too long (maybe it was because I thought there will be the scene when Bard will shot Smaug as well, but it wasn´t =D) and I really disliked the part with the golden statue ...it was just...why
So as you can see the 30th December was a very busy day for me, but I don´t regret to travel all the way just for this event because it was great ♥ I´m really happy that I met all the girls and I want to thank Ketmara for organizing all of this for Czech lolitas =) !
Now for some photos of my outfit and all those amazing gifts I got *o*
I wore my BTSSB skirt from Paris with just a simple coord, because I had to travel in it. Also my beautiful white princess lolita shoes with pearls (which would be perfect with the print) are dead...they just fell appart when I touched them =D I have too many old things in my wardrobe >_<
floral headband : DIY
cardigan, skirt : BTSSB
RHS shoes : Bodyline
I got so many pretty things ♥ Thank you !!!
I also bought this super-cute hairpin with toadstools from Lyrel and the first Czech lolita calendar ever !
At the end of this long post I want to show you a detailed photo of a picture which Veni drew for the competition and gave it to me in the end *o*
It´s me in my Witchcraft jsk and my "fuck you all" face which I use mostly on my visits in Prague =D ha ha
