These don't have to go in any particular order, so I'll start with this one... 17. My First Meetup
My First meetup was at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Sakura Matsuri in 2008. I wore a hideous skirt of my own making(it was made out of that once popular gingham and strawberries border print fabric that everyone used to make their first skirts/dresses). The print wasn't bad, it was just that the skirt I made was just mega frumpy and bleh. I was SO nervous, but as soon as I got there, a sweet adorable angel reached out to me and started chatting with me like it was no big deal. That angel was Dalin of Magic ala Mode, and she's been my best friend ever since! My first meetup experience was a good one, and it definitely set the tone for the rest of my lolita life. But thank god I don't have photos of my coord from that day anymore!!
