Van Elegance Anniversary #4- Melted dolls

First off, the last few days in Vancouver has been the HOTTEST it has ever been. Record making highs for Vancouver.

It was about 35C today. Though the lolita party started at 230, I still had to drop off my term paper at Langara. I woke up early and got ready for the party then left the house on my way to langara. The bus was packed and I had to stand next to a creepy guy that i see from time to time on the 49.

I finally get to school to enjoy a bit of the wonderful A/C before i headed out again to viki's house. The granville street bus was late... very late. again left out there to die in the heat. I arrived at Viki's at 140. I was already shiny and had to re apply makeup and add the finishing touches to my hair. Bevan and Link were already there.

We then went into Bevan's car and headed up to Sutton Hotel for our Tea. We arrived about 30mins late but others other than Joanne were late as well haha. We had a wonderful afternoon tea. A little after we were done our photographers showed up and we took a few photos inside the hotel and outside. Most of the party had to go elsewhere so it was Viki, Helena, Link, Bevan, and myself left and in addition, our photographers Eric, Tony and Oelga.

We then began our journey to Pacific Cetere were Viki had to drop off the yukata for ___? forgot her name at the moment. We wandered through Holt Renfrew, Sophoria? and then headed out to Shangrila. We hanged outside by the bamboo at the Shangrila and took many photos then went to Urbanfare for the A/C

Next on our plans was food. Tony and Oelga left at this point and we headed towards roboson street. We wandered through robson street to finally a korean resturant. I got ot try a nice egg drop noodle in soup. It was soo tasty. After that we headed back to the car and went home.

Looks like every anniversary we always burn off the sugar we ate at high tea with a wonderful marathon. And just like the 2nd anniversary, i broke my shoe again D=..

I was happy that Link and Bevan had loads of fun on thier first lolita tea party. Though, i do think some of the attendees should have made more effort in their outfits. This isnt an ordinary party, it is a formal one. Eroi cosplay fabric grade lolita wasnt quite up to par for VE anniversary high tea.

I had quite a bit of fun looking through the shops. Holt Renfrew had some really pretty fake eyelashes, very intersting to look at and i got to see some pretty spots like the shangrila's bamboo area.

And.. obviously.. IT WAS TOO HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i thought i was going to get a heat stroke in my outfit D=... but it is improper to wear my kind of jumpers without a blouse.. I was dying D=..

Overall though, It was a great day. I had alot of fun =3

I shall post a link to the gallery for the event as soon as all the photos are uploaded ^_^

Yukata @ Nightmarket

Today Viki and I just received our yukata's in the mail. We decided to buy some things for our hair and go to the nightmarket in search for some acessories or something. We walked around downtown for awhile and went to this wonderful shop that had the most beautiful fake flowers. They felt so real. We bought a few and headed back to her house.

We then went along trying to figure out how to tie and obi. It was quite difficult but after awhile we figured it out XD Yay~! [The photo above is before styled hair]

Bevan arrived about 30mins before we were ready and when we were done we took some photos and headed out. We ate an izakaya in richmound~ the food was soo great.

We went to nightmarket and walked around and took some photos. We often got stopped by people to get a photo of us. Afterward, we went out for bbt and then hanged out for awhile and headed home.

Q1 with Link and Bevan

So, after work, I got called out by Lincoln and his friend Bevan. We were going to go to meet up with their other friends and stuff but they all ditched last minute. We ended up going to richmound to play pool. I believe it was my first time playing. LOL Link says I'm pretty good for a first timer though I don't think so LOL.

It was very fun to play although I do prefer to watch others play more. Playing with me the game seems to go on forever. We then went to bubble tea and chatted for a long time. I didnt get home til around 4am in the morning. Its nice to get out again~ I think I'm starting to come out of my shell a bit [the one i made since i got back from japan]

Guu with Momoko

Today after school I hanged out with Momoko! Its been a very long time since we hanged out together. We went walking around downtown and just chatted alot. LOL the funny thing is we got hit on no less than 4 times, HAHA. It reminded me of how it was like in Shibuya. Cept, the boys arent as cute as the ones in japan but i suppose thats a given.

We eventually got hungry and went to Guu on thurlow and robson. Ate a few dishes and finished a pitcher of beer. Its been awhile since I drank. I had alot of fun~ =3

Gyaru Meet Up #2

We haven't hanged out for a long time so its time for some more gyaru fun. Lately I've notice that there are more of us in Vancouver nowadays but kinda spread out. So, heres another meet to bring us all together.

We all arrived roughly on time and we went shopping around metrotown then took some purikura. But unfortunatly Momoko and Yuuko couldnt stay long so by the time viki arrived, it was only shawna, viki and I. We hanged out in Metrotown longer then decided we should change locations.

We went to robson street to look around and maybe spot some cute guys? haha no, we didnt actualy see any but we did see a couple decent fashioned guys in konbinya. That gave me a little hope for van.. just a little.

We eventually ended up at starbucks to sit and chat for awhile. Viki had to go and shawna also had to go soon too. Luckily momoko phoned and said maybe she could meet me in downtown but later she then had to do something and i still didnt wanna go home yet. I haven't been out much lately so i didnt want the fun to end. Thus Shawna and I hanged at Shawna's place. We were both pretty starved but Morito hasnt come home yet. In fact he didnt get off work til around 11ish.

We met up Morito around davie? and got some chinese takeout to eat back at shawna's place. While waiting for my mom to come pick me up, we talked a bit about my trip.

Mom came and I went home tierd but happy. I should really get out more often
