This was sometime in April, 2005!

It was organized by _vasha_ , a...erm, precocious young girl of 14 who looked like she was 18, started a few lolita communites, became the mascot of a local con, and disappeared into thin air.

Also in attendance was Roger, the host of the now sorta famous Tainted Reality j-rock radio show, who organized BLOOD's tour, among other things.

I even found sakurafairy's original post  and the pictures still work! Wow there are some really horrible pictures of me.



Let's start this psychedelic journey.



Hosnap it's Tyler looking so young and ittybitty! She pretends to be embarrassed about this dress nowadays, but when I met her I was unbelievably impressed with what she could do.



Apparently named Frances? I think after this she may have shown up to one meetup. She was VERY quiet.



As you can see, Vasha did not look 14. LOL @ Roger in the background




Dear beautiful Katelyn!




HURRRR. I'm so happy in my Kazuko Ogawa dress. I still love it. Do not care that it's a lace monster.



Yes, we were the first ones to do the gangsta pose.

GOOD TIMES.

It always makes me sad to see people who float in and out of meetups. I always wonder what happened to them, and why they disappear!

I know! Fortunately sometimes they come back. I feel like since meetups on the east coast have been going for almost three years and there are clear friendships, it's hard to just show up and feel comfortable. :/

Yeah, I know. I would hate to think that we ever made any new lolitas feel uncomfortable! It took me a long time to finally summon up the courage to go to my first meetup without knowing anyone.
