Photo(s) of the Day: Heaven and Hell
Posted by focusing the lens at 8:50:00 PM
I should have taken photos of the food I ate yesterday, but it was so quickly consumed that I didn't think of it until later. Instead, you get cupcakes. Delicious, delicious cupcakes.
Yesterday, I went to eat dim sum with two friends of mine that I met through lolita. We didn't dress up (mostly because of the weather and the environment), but we had a lot of fun. We ate dim sum, got gelato-and-bubble-tea (if you live in/near Houston and have never been to Gelato Cup on Bellaire, YOU NEED TO GO), and visited FIT for a bit of shopping and a round of ridiculous purikura. Having so little experience with purikura, and usually having left other people to do the decorating, it was an eventful experience. I screwed up one of the photos for us. Boo.
All in all, a good day!
(In spite of a lack of chicken feet)
Just as a tease (seriously, it's nowhere near done), we discussed plans for a collaborative photo shoot in the near future. We need to check up on the location, and I still have to make up the props (and harass a model into coming along), but the ideas are shaping into action.
As I mentioned in my last post, I have articles planned for addressing clichés and tropes as far as lolita goes. The shoot that we're working on preparing at the moment is going to be Wonderland themed and address some of the common issues people encounter when combining Alice and Lolita. I'm really excited about the shoot, because I plan on combining several mediums into one with it.
