Gallery Meet

Posted by Caitlin Neryce at 14:16
The other day I caught up with my Lolita community at the Art Gallery of NSW. It has been a very long time since I have made it to a Lolita Meet. I barely know the girls in my community and it had been more than a year since I last made it to a meet. I only managed to make it to a quick lunch time gathering the previous year and I've been to the Misako Tea Party. So therefore I was still quite shy and awkward.

My boyfriend came along to the meet with me which made me feel a lot better. I have to travel quite a way to get to my community and I get lost easily, so going alone was just not an option for me. I'm glad he is more than happy to come along to events like this with me.

We went to an art gallery which was a lot of fun. The art was really nice to look at, and there was a painting by Monet which was by far my favourite. It was my second time going to this gallery and it was so much more fun going with a big group of Lolita's. The exhibition we saw was called the 'The Greats: masterpieces from the National Galleries of Scotland', and all the art was gorgeous.

There were a lot of girls who showed up late, so we ended up spending quite a time in the gallery, allowing everyone to look properly at the art. So I ended up socialising and meeting a lot of interesting people. I gushed over everyone's coordinates, as everyone looked so beautiful.

I met quite a lot of interesting people and I hope I can form friendships form this community. I bonded with a girl over Hello Kitty after I announced her Hello Kitty backpack was super cute, she then continued to show me every Hello Kitty item within. I received many friend requests on Facebook after the meet and I had sent some myself to the girls that I met.

Overall it was an amazing experience and I am hoping to make it to more frequent meets. It was a super exhausting day with the travel and being on my feet all day. We went to the art gallery and then walked out to have lunch. Afterwards many left to go home or went on their own way, so my boyfriend and I decided to hit up Kinokuniya since we were out in Sydney.

I made some friends. I loved their coordinates so I asked for a photo.

I'm still quite new to my comm, so I know how you must've been feeling. I'm glad your comm made you feel welcome and included, that's the most important step in forming some Lolita friendships that will withstand the distance and missed meets. And you all look super adorable, very appropriate for such a classic art gallery. :)
