National Day Meetup 2016

October 10 is Taiwan's National Day!  Also called Double Ten Day(雙十節) and we had a small get-together at a hotel afternoon tea.  As most of my clothes are packed up, I had a pretty lackluster coordinate that day...
Pink and Navy makeup
 I have some seriously dark undereye circles :(  There has been ongoing construction just behind the apartment where I live, causing a lot of noise and also a disturbance in the air pressure so some mornings I wake up with deafness in one ear. Rather annoying; I cannot wait to move!!!

So I got lost on the way to the location, which was in a confusing mess of buildings!  However, the birdcage afternoon tea sets were very beautiful and made me forget my frustrations.
Double-person set
It is hanging!
 Because we had a Gomaji coupon, it ended up being only NT$699/two people compared to the regular price of NT$12000!
This is a cat (apparently)
I think it looks like a bunny


There were many people ordering this set that day, so they ran out of double-set hanging cages. I got a single-set cage (same price for two people though) which was also nice, but did not float.

It also fit perfectly around Teddy

There were three savory open-faced sandwiches. I only ate the salmon one, though, as the others were chicken and pork, which I don't eat.

The sweets were all very good, EXCEPT THAT ADORABLE CAT/BUNNY!  It was so disappointing. Though I hadn't expected the cat to taste good, as it was essentially just a solid ball of fondant, the base looked like a jelly but tasted overly sweet.  Imagine eating strawberry fruit preserves straight from the jar, but with a denser texture.  Not appetizing at all.
I actually forgot to take photos of a couple things

Though there was technically a time limit for eating, it was not crowded so we stayed for several hours, just chatting!

Outfit Rundown:
Hair corsage; skirt: handmade by me
Flowers, shoes: Taobao shops
Blouse: Miaii Mussa
Petticoat: Classical Puppets (taobao)

I didn't get a photo of the back, but my blouse has bunny ears on the collar!

Tomorrow is another Lolita meetup with the theme of savory foods so I actually went and pulled a dress out of packaging to wear for tomorrow.  I will have to re-pack when I get home ^^;
