SMASH 2014 and Indie Brand Magic Cats Street!

Posted by Caitlin Neryce at 17:36 2 comments
SMASH this year was a lot of fun. I went with two of my friends, and we spent the day talking, buying stuff, and getting pictures with cosplayers. What was even more exciting, was a few days before the event I discovered on Facebook about a new Lolita brand called Magic Cats Street now situated in Sydney Australia that was going to be there. Of course I had to check it out, and even managed to drag my friends to go see it as soon as we got there. The brand was super cute, and everything was reasonably priced and well made. I bought a JSK and a matching bolero, and I love them so much. I'll post the pictures  from the brand down below my SMASH pictures, and I'll take pictures of me wearing my garments when I get dressed up next time.

It was also a pleasant surprise to run into two Lolita's from the Sydney Lolita Fashion community. I had them both of Facebook, and I think I met one of them at the Misako Tea Party (my memory escapes me). I had no idea who they were at first, and was surprised when I went to ask two well dressed girls for a photo and one of them recognised me and even knew my name. Not long after that my friends and I departed for home, and the only seats we found available on the train were next to the same girls. They were really nice and allowed us to sit with them, and we all had pleasant conversation between us. I'm hoping I can make it up to another meet sometime, as I'd like to see these girls again.

It was an amazing, but super tiring day. Due to SMASH being in a new venue this year, it took so much longer to get there. It took three trains to get there initially, and four on the way home. I had to get up at 5:30 in the morning and didn't come home until around 7:30. Although it was super tiring, I would definitely do it again. I also hope they keep holding it at this venue, as even though it's further away I believe I like it a lot better. It's a lot more spacious, and because of that you aren't packed against a lot of people.
