Out in the Snow

Yesterday, my friend Harry (of H. Mcdougall Photography )(and facebook) and I ventured out into the snow for a small photoshoot. He had never done a shoot in the snow before, and I'd never done a 'proper' photoshoot before! So, it was a learning experience for us both, and it was a lot of fun!
He is obviously a talented photographer, I can't quite believe it's really me in these pictures :)

Edinburgh Christmas Meetup

First of all, a very happy International Winter Lolita Day to you! I hope you did something suitably elegant, frilly and cute to celebrate :)

Yesterday, the Scottish Lolitas gathered in spite of the terrible weather conditions for a meetup in Edinburgh. A few people couldn't make it, because of the mass cancelation of trains which was very sad, and the group of us that travelled from Glasgow were on (litterally) the only train running in and out of the station!
However, the fear and trepidation, danger of being stuck and travel delays were all worth while!

It seems like not long ago there was a grand total of 5 Lolitas, in Scotland. And we had small meet ups every now and then. Now, there's so many of us!
Our number takes up entire rooms in pretty tea houses! hehehe.
After an absolutely splendid lunch of sandwiches, scones and cupcakes we went to the christmas faire for some fun!
We'd been looking forward to the carousel ride..
My horse was called "Samuel" :p
The next stop was the Ferris Wheel. It was cold up there!
But we did get a beautiful view of the city.

Clare and I overheard someone say "ice maze", and immediately decided we had to go in it! So, we located the forementioned maze and excitedly swarmed into it! All those perspex pannels and mirrored walls made it a very tricky maze to navigate, it was alot of fun.

huh? That didn't come out right, here's a better picture ;)

Out of the Maze part, there was a moving conveyor belt on which you had to sit, and try to get off again at the other side while the belt moved mack and forth at the contoll of the man at the end! It was much more difficult that it sounds and looked!
In fact, there's even a video of it ...

All too soon, it was getting dark, we were getting tired, and it was time to go home.

Thank You all for such an amazing day! I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again next time!
