The Halloween party by JapanLA and Royal/T was a big success. As we posted before, there was a reporter from LA Times was taking pictures and interviewing people. The article by Tara Godvin, the Los Angeles Times reporter, is featured on She wrote about 25 Lolitas that were at the party. It is a very intersting photo album/article.

By the way, I’m the 25th person on there. LOL.

Halloween Tea Party Report.

On Sunday, 10/26, we went to the Halloween tea party organized by JapanLA and Royal/T. There were a lot of Lolitas with amazing outfits and very cute dolls. Ching and I arrived at 12 pm, and there were only a couple of tables of cute lolis there. It was a little hard to talk to people, cause everyone were spread-out in the cafe. But we managed to take the initiative to talk to others. So we made some new friends there! Slowly, about an hour or so later, more and more people came to the party. Then the party became more fun. There were also a photo session and book signing session. It was pretty interesting after all. ^_^ I was very surprised that there was LA Times reporter there too.

On to more pictures~~

黒色すみれ (Kokusyoku Sumire) and Angelic Pretty in Los Angeles

November 8-9, Cosplay Oneesan is bringing us the opportunity to shop Angelic Pretty and live with 黒色すみれ (Kokusyoku Sumire) in Kyoto Grand Hotel in Los Angeles.

Lolita san in the area should be very excited. Because Angelic Pretty has their online shop for oversea customers, but only selected style. This time hopefully we could get something they don’t sell online and let Angelic Pretty knows they need to put more merchandises on their oversea website.

黒色すみれ (Kokusyoku Sumire) is a very interesting band that formed by Yuka and Sachi. Their music is a mixture of classic, Japanese folk songs and French chanson. This event in November is going to be their very first time in the US.
