Once Upon A Time...
I could not wait to attend this December International Lolita Day meetup! My local lolita community planned an extra special event to celebrate. As this was my first winter meet, there wasn't any way that I would miss this event! For this holiday event, the group activities included:
A visit to a local museum for their 'Festival of Trees' exhibit,
have a delicious meal at a local cafe
and conduct a holiday gift swap!
To prepare for the event, I planned out my lolita coordinate, brushed out my wig, and wrapped my handmade exchange gift. When the date of the event came, I doubled checked the time and location for the event and made my way to the meet! When I arrived, I adjusted some of the final touches of my coordinate, grabbed my camera and swap present, and made my way into the local museum.
No one was there.
Well, there weren't any other Lolitas that I could see. The staff member I spoke to was very kind. He explained he had not seen anyone that was dressed in a similar fashion to me. Perhaps the other members were running late. I quickly checked my phone and discovered that there were some unexpected events that would prevent anyone else from attending the meet. I froze. I was already at the meet-up location and none of the other members would be attending. All I could think was,
"What do I do now?"
