Hellocon haul and experience

Okay so now more about my personal experience and stuff I got :D First of all I enjoyed myself, there were three of us who went there together and met another local lolita who we've never met before, and hung out with her as well for the whole day. I hope she'll join us on our future meetups as well ^^ 

(PS here is a video where I pretty much say the same things that are in this post)

The light inside was notoriously poor, so here's my outfit of the day. It was windy and we were hungry so it's not the best photo, but the only one I have :D Dress Juliette et Justine, blouse Infanta, head band and wristcuffs hand made, shoes ebay and bag Jawbreaker.

 Bonus photo! I had to brace my hands against my legs to avoid shaky-hands-action as much as possible, and  the chairs didn't move so I put my leg against the rail :D Very glory, such lolita.

As for what I bought, I got two things: a skirt and a necklace. There were lots of things I wanted and some of them I could have actually afforded, but these were the only "must-have" ones so I kept the rest of my money to spent on Lacemarket when I spot my dream dresses :P

The first is a Lady Sloth skirt, I have another one from last year's Hellocon and now I have two. This was 73€ and just long enough so I got it! The print is amazing, I've been looking for this kind of fabric for FOREVER but haven't found one so I just bought the skirt. It fits perfectly and I'm very happy with the decision I made. <3

The smaller thing I got was this necklace: as a gamer I just couldn't say no to it... I was wondering between this and a red one labeled as Demon Blood, but as my dress was blue, I got this one and put it on as it fit the coord. I think it was 7€ or 10€.

Small detour: I got this bolero from a friend (for ~15€) and it's awesome, super soft with looong sleeves. It's from Mystery Garden, an indie brand which is temporarily closed.

And this is what my new things look like when worn. :)

Other than shopping, I had a blast talking to old and new friends and met some fans! I didn't know I actually had those :D The first was this lovely lady at Eat me, Ink me, I was looking through the gorgeous garments and she said hi and that she followed my blog. I was blown away, and didn't knw what to say but it was awesome meeting you! Their prints are beautiful but a bit too short and I said so, and she said that there's gonna be longer ones in the future. I'm very much looking forward to that, I saw some prints that belong in my wardrobe ^^

In total four people came to talk to me and said they follow me, thank you so much! I'll be at Animecon (Kuopio, Finland) both days so if you see me please say hi :D One day I'll be in lolita, the second one in cosplay.

All in all I had a blast, and will probably go again next year (if I have some money to spend). If you want to see more about the event, I have  video in the previous post.

    1. Thank you, I really love both the look and the theme for it! :D

  2. Tuo lady Slothin hame on todella upea! Olen kuolannut sitä itsekin, hyvä löytö :)

    1. Olen etsinyt samantyylistä kauan, joko kankaana tai valmiina hameena joten se lähti mukaan! Etsintä ohi :D
