We ended up buying some cute pumps at Lacrace Mart and two pairs of sparkly tights at Tutuanna. Finding the right blouses was the most troublesome. We were quite desperate so we just grabbed a black and a wine shirts that were on sale at Axes Femme, or so we thought... When we were about to pay the total wasn't what we expected, there was a misunderstanding and the shirts (although on sale) weren't as cheap as we had thought. We had seen other blouses that would have matched our outfits better and that were about the same price than the ones we were getting, so we asked if we could swapped them. And they let us!
Once we had done all our shopping we went back to our apartment to get ready. We left early since I didn't want to experience what had happened the day before... (read my previous post)
Here's a pic we took on our way to the event:
It took as a while to find the Hilton hotel in Odaiba and some more time to figure out where the entrance was. But then we just followed the frills and ended up in a wide hall where they took our coats, asked for our invitations and guided us towards a huge door that was closed. Little by little more and more lolitas started to arrive and the place got packed with ruffles.
When they opened the doors we could see a big stage, 2 big screens and many tables. The seats weren't numbered so you could sit wherever you felt like, but we felt a little shy since everyone seemed to know each other. Fortunately, I spotted some girls I had met the day before and they invited us to sit with them. Sara even helped us get vegetarian menus even though we hadn't asked for them in advance.
I don't remember very well what we had for dinner, in fact, I DON'T KNOW what we had for dinner... They gave us something that looked like chicken, tasted like chicken but was not chicken... I love AP so I'll trust them that that thing was vegetarian.
While we were eating they showed a video of Angelic Pretty through the years and around the world. After dinner, there was a fashion show showcasing popular prints like Sugary Carnival, Strawberry Millefuille, etc. Oh, the memories!
Then there was the fashion show with all the upcoming prints. Famous models like RinRinDoll, KimuraU and Risa Nakamura were there. They not only walked on the runway but around the tables. I really wanted to touch their dressed when they passed near me!
Here there are some pics of the invitation, event menu and collection lineup, since we weren't allowed to take photos during the fashion show:
After the fashion show we had some time to go around and take photos before the lottery started.
I'll end this post here with some silly selfies and continue next time with a super cute photo dump.
Thanks for reading!
