Well it happened. I am coordinating my first Lolita meet. There is a production of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland ballet at Lincoln Center. And how could we just leave it at suggesting we all get tickets? Why not go for the whole shebang!? Dinner and tea after at Alice’s Tea Cup AND with an Alice inspired coordinate theme. Now your talking. Its a bit pricey for some of the community, as its 2 events in one, but we already managed to pull a good size group together.
I have seen the nightmares others have had coordinating meets so hope I can manage. Its really just making the reservation and colleting funds. Given my years of project management experience feel I am up to the challenge. Fingers crossed for me and counting on a little beginners luck.
But that brings us back to the Alice inspired look… and what the heck am I going to wear???
There have been so many amazing Alice prints over the years but the only one I have is Alice’s Dollhouse from Baby, the Stars Shine Bright. My favorite all time Alice print is by Jane Marple. And sadly, just like with Emily Temple cute, Milk, Katie… there is no way possible it would fit me. Ironically, I just purchase and received a book print fabric that includes many characters and references to Alice. So perhaps if I mix Jane Marple’s Alice print with their British Library print maybe I can make my own one piece?
I might be mad to think I can pull this off. Still need to finish honey-bunny’s look since this will be his first adventure into EGL and I don’t want this to be an Emperor’s New Clothes theme party for him. Counting on that long Labor Day weekend to work to my advantage.
