International Lolita Day Dinner and Gathering

I know this community is kind of dead, but I thought I should post about our ILD event in case anyone still checks it or has yet to join the Facebook group.

We have booked a private room at a local restaurant for our International Lolita Day event! For more info check out the events on our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/249963740322/ (If you're not a member yet please read the description for rules on joining!)

New Meetups?

Hey everyone! Do we have any new meetups scheduled? I heard something about another karaoke meetup and one other one planned, but nothing's been posted. If there isn't anything, does anyone want to schedule something?

looking to get rid of some DD kilt rocking horse shoes locally--

hey everyone! okay so I don't usually sell stuff but I've got this pair of Double Decker rocking horse shoes I bought ages ago that I need to part with. here are the specs;
  • black KILT style w/ wooden sole; size 38 (roughly a very, very narrow 7/8 in US Woman's)
  • lightly used (worn maybe a month or two out of a three-year period)
  • slightly scuffed on the front (but easy to miss)

Hey everybody!! I'm going to be attending SakuraCon, but entirely in cosplay each day, so I won't be able to take advantage of your cute meetups (though I wish I could!!). So instead, I was wondering!
There are a lot of teahouses in the Hillsboro/Beaverton area. Would anybody want to meet up after the con sometime? Middle of April or early May?

Tea-Time with Lola and Lolli and Sakura-Con Lolita Events

Looks like Sakura-Con is going to have several lolita events this year! Sounds like there will be three fashion shows, a swap meet, a Lolita 101 panel, a large offsite dinner meet-up, and my friend Holli and I are hosting a lolita tea-party!

The offsite meet-up is being planned by the Washington Lolitas for 7pm Saturday. It looks like they are in the process of setting up this event as the date had to be changed so as not to conflict with another lolita event. Check it out: http://wa-lolis.livejournal.com/161007.html

The tea-party Holli and I will be hosting will take place in the convention center on Friday at 12:00-2:00pm. There have been a lot of questions so I thought I would post something to clarify the details we have so far. Sakura-Con does not allow food items to be distributed other than those they provide so unfortunately we are unable to cater the event. Instead there will be a cafe cart set up inside the tea-room or just outside where people can purchase snacks. You may bring your own items if you have special dietary needs but we are not allowed to provide food or bring items to share. As this limits our ability to have a traditional tea-party, this event will be focused more on coming together to celebrate the fashion and meet fellow lolitas. Bring links to your favorite online lolita resources, personal business cards, and any lolita-related tips that you think might be worth sharing!

Our event will include a variety of lolita-themed games, activities, prizes, and plenty of opportunity to chat with other lolitas. We are still in the process of planning some of the specific activities so if you have ideas that you would like to see at this event we would love to hear your thoughts! We have begun collecting lolita items and accessories made by DIY lolitas to give out as prizes and it looks like there will be some great items! If you would like to donate a prize we will happily include your personal website in a flyer that will go out to all lolitas at the event and if you attend we will give you an opportunity to speak about your donated item if you wish.

We have asked that people come in lolita/kodona style for first dibs on seats as the event space will only hold about 40 people. Obviously this is not ideal given how many lolitas are coming from Washington, Oregon and beyond so if you are interested it may be wise to arrive early.

Please feel free to use this as a place to add your thoughts, suggestions, and to post updates about other lolita events at Sakura-Con as you hear about them! I'm starting to get excited about this year!

Baking in SE Portland

I have a bunch of scented violets in my yard and am thinking of making candied violets to put on cupcakes.  Is anyone else interested in making candied violets or other edible flowers (I might have borage still in bloom)?  Later in the year roses and nasturtiums are good for this kind of project, too.

I've never made candied flowers before, so I don't know if they can be used the same day to decorate cakes or not, but I do know that they can be stored for a very long time once made, and I have a dehydrator that can speed up the drying process.

In general, Fridays and weekends are best for me, so if anyone is interested, let me know dates that work for you.  Feb 26, March 3 & 17th are out for me, but I want to make these before Easter, if possible.
