Because I wasn't anticipating on actually being able to go, I was left with 20 minutes to get ready- 10 minutes in which I spent in the shower, 5 minutes getting dressed, and 5 minutes packing up. 20 minutes isn't enough for me to choose a dress and coordinate to wear, style my wig, and apply makeup. Not wearing lolita to a lolita based event made me feel kind of uncomfortable.
I stopped by the Angelic Pretty/Harajuku Hearts shop a couple times before lining up. The first time before lunch, but the line was too long and I hadn't had breakfast yet, and it was already past 11. The line wasn't very long by the time I started lining up, but the store is small so it was still a long wait. While waiting, there were people staring, taking photos, cars coming by who slowed down to take pictures, admirers, and haters (haters gonna hate). I suppose it's not often that most people see so much poof and frills gathered in one place.
I made a small purchase for the sake of buying something. Oh, and asked for pictures with Maki and Asuka, designers for Angelic Pretty.
I bumped into Asuka a few minutes later and asked to take her picture, since the lighting inside wasn't the best. Accidentally cut off her feet.
