Hello, my dear readers ♥
As I said hundred time already, I went to Olomouc an the end of June for a lolita tea party which was at the same time a tiny little exhibition of my lolita-themed illustrations.
It was probably the longest way I had to travell for a lolita meet-up, so long that we had to arrive a day before because it took us six hours to get there...phew ! Together with my boyfriend we spent the night at a really cute old pension in the historical centre of Olomouc. The city center is so beautiful ! I was there once some time ago, but this time I had a chance to see it at night as well and wow ! Totally worth the visit if you live nearby =)
Back to the meet-up. Thanks to my clever idea to arrive a day before we didn´t even have wake up that early, slowly enjoy our breakfast at pension and with no hurry take a walk to the Porcelain Doll shop where Pierrette was already waiting for us. Then we put illustrations in their frames and helped Layla to display her collection of beautiful handmade earrings. Just when we were about to leave for the tea room, we met downstairs almost half of the lolitas who were attending the tea party =)
After that we went to the beautiful tea room we were waiting for the rest, chatting, eating and drinking tea. Then a first group went to the shop (it´s literally few steps from the tea-room) to take a look at the pictures and maybe even to buy something. And there is A LOT to choose from in the shop *o* I totally fell in love with those ouji pants from Madame Muffin, but I didn´t have enought money so I ended up at least with a great mushroom necklace made By Anasis ...you know I have a weeknes for weird things around my neck =D
While we were at the shop I had to say something about my "art" which was probably the hardest part of the day, since I get really nervous while talking in front of others and I´m 100% sure that I talked really weird things and it probably didn´t even make sense >_<
When the second group saw the exhibition and bought some new things as well we headed to a town square to take some photos. We took a lot of them, had fun and people sitting around in restaurants weren´t sure what to think about us =D Then it started to rain so we took cover back in the tea room and stayed there for some more hours in which Pierrette revealed us results of her lolita survey. There were so many interresting facts about Czech lolita community ! For example, - can you believe that 70% of Czech lolitas are making their own clothes o_o ?! That´s so cool! We´re such a creative community ♥
Then the tea party slowly ended. Some girls went for cocktail, but we had a travel to Prague ahead of us, so we passed. I´m so happy that I had a chance to see my friends who I haven´t seen for four or maybe five years T_T ! I hope that in future we will meet sooner than that =)
And I almost forgot to say that appart from looking at pictures in Porcelain Doll shop you could or you still can buy postcards and buttons, Pierrette got printed. They´re really beautiful and I got some for myself as well, but on my way home I gave all the postcards to my mum and grandma so in the end I have just buttons and nothing to show you =D
So that´s probably everything I wanted to tell you and now some photos !!!
all thanks to Pavel Beran who had a great patience with us all day and was shooting one photo after another until everyone was happy =D ...some of photos were also taken by my bf or me ♪
(my phone couldn´t get over the fact that I have silver hair, so it made my face pink like a piggy)
the shelf in the upper left corner is the one of RABBIT HEART- full of flower brooches and antlers ♪
