I recently attended a local anime and gaming convention known as PortCon. This Portland, Maine based convention is one of my favorite geek events to visit. I have attended this convention for many years, but there were some exciting new events at this convention that I am very excited to share!
This particular convention was a bit different than in the past. This year was the first time that I have worn lolita fashion each day that I attended the convention! I was very fortunate that the weather was favorable to my multiple layers. We have never had such lovely weather at this time of year!
Dress: Letters To My Dear Lolita by Precious Clove
Main Event: Lolita Tea Party
Thursday is an exclusive event day for attendees. Due to this, it was much easier to pose for photos, meeting new people and take my own photos of the amazing costumes that I saw. It was a lovely opportunity to connect with the attendees at the convention. For my coordinate, I was excited to wear my jumperkskirt piece by Precious Clove. The Classic Sweet style of the dress was elegant enough for the main event but comfortable enough to wear to events prior to the tea party.
The Main Event
The Lolita tea party was phenomenal! The presentation, menu, and atmosphere were absolutely charming and well beyond my expectations. The hosts of the event were very attentive and dressed to impress. Each attendee received a raffle ticket upon arrival for tea party prizes. We each had our own individual porcelain teacup and a selection of coffee, tea or hot chocolate. The menu selection for eatables was very impressive and catered to allergies, such as gluten and dairy. I was thrilled to be able to enjoy the dairy and gluten free a scone, a cucumber sandwich and meringue cookie.
