Hi, everyone! It has been a long time since I participated in Lolita Blog Carnival. I’ve been really busy with the full-time job I started in September, so I haven’t had much time to blog. Hopefully I’ll find time to blog more in 2017! In any case, this week’s prompt is: Create A Holiday Themed Coord!
For WinterCon, a comic and sci-fi expo in NYC, I decided to wear a holiday-themed coordinate for Sunday at the con. Think: holiday toys and presents for children!
The dress and the headbow are from Alice and the Pirates’ Drosselmeyer’s Wonderbox series. I love the unique colorway and the variety of toys that line the dress’s border. The cuffs and yoke are nice touches too! I felt like a whimsical toymaker princess, to be honest.
Of course, this was a very cold Sunday, and most of the time, I was completely bundled up. And most of the photos reflected this.
Yes, I had a thick scarf on (which was technically a shawl that I used as a scarf), a long winter coat with a faux fur collar, and I had gloves with me (but I didn’t wear the gloves for the photos). As much as I love my Alice and the Pirates book purse, all my stuff didn’t fit into that small purse, so I used the tote bag I got from the Angelic Pretty Mook too. I also realize that I wear these rings with most of my coordinates. (Plus I’m wearing my college ring, which I never take off except for certain cosplays.)

I actually left WinterCon early to explore Manhattan a bit, and Joe of Just Cosplay Photos and I checked out the Rockefeller Center. It was super crowded, but we did manage to get some shots!
I felt like the colors from the tree matched my outfit quite well! (Except all the colors in my outfit were darker.)
After checking out the tree, we looked at some of the window displays for various stores. A random lady complimented my purse and asked me where I got it. I had the chance to explain EGL fashion to her, which was a pleasure!
Last but not least, I adopted this precious bear from WinterCon… I named him Drosselmeyer after my dress! Isn’t he adorable? Drosselmeyer is too precious and he deserves so much love. I will probably make a blog post specifically about Drosselmeyer and me at WinterCon. I am excited to see the photos Brian captured of me and Drosselmeyer!
Thank you so much for reading, and please share your own holiday adventures with me! Photography credits go to Brian Ngai (photos at WinterCon) and Just Cosplay Photos (photos in Manhattan).
