It has been so long since I've been to a Lolita meetup!!! First of all, here is my outfit:
JSK, bloomers: handmade by me
Petticoat: Classical Puppets
Everything Else: offbrand
This meetup was a crafting meetup at THE WHO cafe. It was really nice because we booked the whole space so where were no outsiders to take secret photos of us! It was very relaxing and we all brought the supplies we had to exchange/buy/sell and make items.

I ended up making several rings, a pin, two clips, and a headdress:
PiGi had brought colored glue sticks so we used a chocolate one. AKI made like 30 rings! I only used it to outline LOVE on a cookie that I made into a clip and as a drizzle on a macaron, but it is SO much more difficult to use than regular hot glue! It is much runnier, so if you use it I would suggest that you have everything you want to drizzle set up already. If you leave the glue gun on, the "sauce" will keep dripping out and we ended up wasting quite a bit!
It also comes out more "gloopy" when you squeeze the trigger, so squeeze very gently!
If you need to change colors I'd definitely suggest putting a clear stick in between to sort of "clean" the glue gun and prevent the colors from mixing.
Here is some of the stuff I brought:
The cafe owners were incredibly nice! The food was very tasty and looked very cute.

The bird is a craft material that PiGi brought!
