This was the “Hello – A Lolita Meetup”, put together by the Fabulous Olivia. The event was held on a warm California afternoon, at the Old L.A. Zoo, in Griffith Park. I always enjoy shooting the events that Olivia organizes, because I get to see and talk to all my fave Lolitas.
This is Olivia, She’s a talented graphic designer/fashion designer/blogger/Lolita.. etc. You can find her blog here -> (http://lemontree11blog.blogspot.com).
The Lolitas assemble outfits from Japanese brand name Lolita clothing designers (which can be very expensive), or design and make their own outfits, either of these outfits in their completed states are called “coordinates”. The coordinates are usually completed by the accessories, hair, shoes, and purses that compliment the dress, skirt, or print worn. Here are some examples of great Coords.

Another awesome thing about these meetups is the networking you are able to do in regards to scheduling private photo shoots with some of the Lolitas. Here are two Lolie’s that I’m looking forward to shooting. They agreed to help me with my “Suspended Elegance” photo project (http://www.laphotonet.com/p112487440).
See you ladies soon!
Email me here from this site if you are an awesome Loli, and interested in shooting with me.
I had bunches of fun at the Hello – A Lolita Meetup! I enjoyed taking your photos, and talking to all of you, because I admire all the hard work you ladies and gents put into your outfits. Hope to see you next meet!
