Best of… 2nd Anniversary Edition
As we posted last week, Carousel of Crowns recently celebrated its 2nd Anniversary. Check out some of our highlights and personal favorites below.
Best Fashion Snap
Real Lolita Style
Lydia’s pick for her favorite fashion snap from the past year is Courtney’s Mori-Girl-inspired Lolita outfit at the Angelic Pretty RinRin tea party event in San Francisco in April.
Courtney’s outfit incorporated hand-crafted pom-pom accessories. For detail photos of these accessories and a brief description of Courtney’s outfit, check out Pom-Pom Perfection.
Judging by the feedback and number of visits this post received, looks like a lot of you found the Clair Beauty Wig Review helpful. Thanks for looking past those horrid end-of-day photos!
The Name No One Could Remember
There were quite a few Lolita-related events this past year, but the most memorable also had the most packed schedule. Fantaisies dans le Monde des Reves, co-located with Fanime 2010 in San Jose, California, had a name that was hard to remember and even harder to pronounce. Playfully nicknamed “The Fancy French Name Event,” it ran throughout the long Memorial Day holiday and had special guests from Angelic Pretty, Chantilly, Atelier Pierrot and Kokusyoku Sumire along with local Lolita fashion designers and retailers. Events included a Miss Gothic & Lolita USA competition, a concert by Kokusyosku Sumire, fashion shows, talk shows the designers and the Magical Boutique where attendees browsed and purchased from an incredible selection of Lolita clothing.
Best Craft Post
Hot Glue, Flowers & Lace
We received lots of postive feedback on Lydia’s craft post Straw Bag and Hot Glue in which she added lace and flower embellishments to a simple straw bag. The end result was a versatile purse for spring and summer.
Matsuki & Ashley-Marie‘s outfits from Fantaisies dans le Monde des Reves is one of my favorite fashion snaps from the past year. They’re outfits were perfectly accessorized so I recommend checking out th full post for detail photos.
Cute Little Booties
During the fall and winter of 2010, our favorite trend was the Lolita take on the trendy booties, otherwise known as ankle boots. Check out our mini-post on this trend – Shoe Love.
The Sound of Music
Lydia’s favorite post from the past year was the report on Kokusyoku Sumire’s concert at Fantaisies dans leMonde des Reves. The performance was fantastic and for those of you that weren’t able to make it, or those that attended but want to re-live that day, we have photos and video of portions of the performance for your enjoyment. Check out Kokusyoku Sumire at Fantaisies dans le Monde des Reves.
