Lolita Outfits of 2012

I don't post to daily_lolita anymore. I should, though, as it's taking part in community activities and contributing to the world of lolita fashion. Because some of these outfits are so old, I decided to do a roundup of the outfits I did manage to photograph.

Reshoot Day, February 2012
I had to retake some footage for the 2011 One Day in Paradise tea party video, so after doing that, I thought I might have some fun outside the shop in Fitzroy, which has now moved location to inside Kanga Kanga in the Melbourne CBD.

One Day in Paradise store opening, Adelaide, October 2012
Thank you to Candice for this lovely photo. This is one of the few I am actually looking remotely relaxed in from this set. It is near impossible to take a decent photo of me under stress as I tend to look like a sleep deprived hag before, during and after events, but Candice captured me nicely.
