I noticed on Angelic Pretty's event calendar it says Angelic Pretty will be at Acen this year. I cant find anything on their blog about it or on acen's website. Anyone know the details? Will there be a tea party or anything like that. I have always been so jealous of other cons because of this. So im just so excited they will be at a con im going to for once.

Sorry for making a new post, but I wasn't sure what else to do because I don't remember who I bought my skirt from. It is the bodyline soft cream skirt in blue. when I came home I could only find one waist tie. Did it only come with one or did I lose one somewhere? wondering if maybe I should contact the hotel see if they found it or something. Thanks. : )


I apologize!!

I'm sorry that the large meet-up was cut short by IRT neither kuroloki nor I knew that ACen staff would kick us out of a new location!! We are looking for ideas for next year a few that have come up are:

Host the meet-up in the original place (con center, escalators) on Sunday
Host the meet-up in the original place on Friday (evening)
Host a Lolita Swap Meet Panel at some point during the convention

Please feel free to make more suggestions or comment on those already brought up! We want to make this as convenient and fun as possible for next year as well as not have problems with IRT :D

Hi there, if you went to the Sew Loli panel on Friday night, please give us your honest criticisms and other comments/questions/concerns you had at the panel but didn't get a chance to express at the panel. Thanks!

It says that it's not supposed to rain until 2, so we're meeting outside! If you want to meet longer and it starts raining, I'm sure it won't be a problem if you just walk into the building.


In case of rain

Just wanted to make a separate post about where we'll be in case of rain, since I only edited the meetup post and some of you may not have noticed. There are supposed to be isolated thunderstorms on Sunday. The chance is low, but I would feel better about meeting indoors to avoid the risk of everyone getting rained on.

So here's what will happen. I will check the weather on Sunday morning to see what the forecast is like, and if there's still any chance of rain, we'll meet at our old spot in the convention center next to the escalators. Again, this is ONLY if there is a chance of rain. Otherwise we'll meet at the previously designated spot the East Outdoor Wall.

This is the forecaster I normally use and will be checking: http://www.weather.com/weather/today/Chicago+O'Hare+International+IL+USIL0028

If it's convenient to you, I encourage you to check the same forecast Sunday morning as well so that you already know where we'll meet. Otherwise, I will probably stand by the East Outdoor Wall to direct you to the indoor location (if it's not me I'll have someone else there). I chose this spot because most of us already know where it is to avoid confusion, and it was my thought that some of you would appreciate the familiarity. I hope it's not too inconvenient for you!

If for any reason we meet outside and we begin to feel rain, just walk inside (the East Outdoor Wall is next to an entrance) and there should be an open space for us to continue in. I don't want to make you walk all that way toward the convention center in the rain. There is a slim chance of this happening since it would mean that the forecast was totally wrong; they're more likely to predict rain and we don't get any.

artemiscangee will be overseeing the meetup and aerie_star will be there for you to report your card collections to. Don't forget to bring blankets or cushions to sit on!


2011 Events of (possible) interest to Lolitas

Apparently there's a lotCollapse )

Click here for the complete schedule (minus meetups and photoshoots).

*The game freezes when Lolitas start meeting backstage for the show. I'm not sure if it resumes after Khaotic Kouture or after h.Naoto though.

**For whatever reason, the meetups schedule has been removed and I don't remember when the BJD meetup is, so you'll have to check the printed schedule if it's in there. But I believe it's in the dome area some time before our swap meet? EDIT: See comments for clarification.

Ok, even though they aren't able to add the meetup to their gatherings schedule, it sounds like we are set for...

Sunday, East Outdoor Wall at 12:30

IN EVENT OF RAIN: Sunday at 12:30 in the Convention Center by the escalators (old spot)

12:30~1pm - Swap meet


1~1:30 - Picnic

Bring your own lunch or a snack to share. Please don't offer food to people who aren't part of the meetup as the Hyatt's policy forbids this. We might also play games during this time, so let me know if you have any suggestions!

Times (except the meetup start time) are approximate.

Bring a blanket, cushion, or chair to sit on since part of the area is cement. I'll also bring some tarp in case it rains before the meetup.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Some of you have asked, "Is there going to be a swap again this year?"

Yes indeed!

Use this thread to post the items you'll be bringing to trade or sell, as well as a list of any items you're looking for!

(More details about the meetup will be posted soon...)


Meetup info

Ok, I'm back with more info! Thanks to everyone who commented on my last post :D

Instead of the other spot I was thinking of, I had this spot recommended to me. It's called "East Outdoor Wall" on the map below. It's bigger, has a little less traffic, and it's right next to the dome area (where the panels and video rooms usually are) so we can just walk inside if it's raining.

Oh my I am hotlinking, oh well. These photos are all courtesy of cactusmomma on the Acen forums who is the one helping me reserve a meetup spot. What do you think?

Would you guys be ok meeting there at 12:30 or 1pm on Sunday, or is that too late? I'm sorry, but there are already meetups scheduled there earlier in the day. If you want to meet earlier, the options are the old spot by the escalators or in the previously-mentioned dome area. It just depends whether location or time is the priority with most people.

As for food, it sounds like theoretically we should be allowed to bring our own as long as we aren't distributing or selling it to others. But really, to me, a hotel doesn't seem like an appropriate venue for a potluck picnic, so I was thinking you just pack or buy your own lunch/snack if you're comfortable with bringing food with you. What are your thoughts on this? I didn't go last year so I'm not sure how much food you guys had.

Thanks for reading!
