Atlantis Marine Wolrd Meet Up Photos

Thanks to our photographer Mike we got a lot of great pictures of this event in the aquarium and outside at the docks for our photo shoot. So instead of putting up a ton of pictures, since it took me forever with the wizard of oz meet ones, I'm leaving the link to the photographer page here: http://smu.gs/LPFY7G password is lolita. Enjoy!

New discusions

So we had a blast at our Atlantis meetup yesterday! Thanks to all who came.
We came up with the idea of a discussion on
How lolita is your room? weather it be more gothic or sweet I want to see your pictures and such.

I'll post mine soon as well as pictures from the meetup once I get all of them from our photographer

Also another discussion. What should we do for our next meetup?
There are still many things to do but I think it would be fair since our last one was so far out east in suffolk county that the next one be somewhere is nassau county. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas of events coming up.

Hello~Intro Post!

Hello!
I can't tell you all how excited I was when I realized that there was actually an official group of lolitas on long island! I've been into lolita for about 3 years now, but I've only been wearing it for about a year now. I don't wear it often, at least not locally. I started off OTT Sweet but now I like sweet classic and gothic. c:
I'm 14, and my name's Sophia. I know, super young but whatever it's 2009. (I love LSP).
You can call me whatever you like, I don't mind. I'm an open and friendly person so just message me 8D I like making new friends.

I look forward to meeting you all at meetups and such c:

Since It is Wizard of Oz themed we will be on the Wizard of Oz coarse! Also because its the easiest and know a few people including myself stink at any form of golf but just walking around there is so cool and being with friends is always fun.

Anniversary Meetup!

Hello all! 

I just was thinking how nice it would be to see you all again, and was waxing nostalgic about this community. I looked, and it is very nearly this community's 5th birthday! And it's the fourth year anniversary from our first (highly epic!) meetup at Atlantis Marine World. 

I was thinking that we should do something to celebrate! The idea has been knocked around about going back to the aquarium, and I think that's a lovely idea. I'd like to get an idea of how many people would be interested so that I can work on pricing. I'd love to get a group discount. 

Feel free to invite significant others and friends- I won't bite (I can't speak for the rest of us though!) 

I'm thinking Late June to Mid July as far as timing goes. I'm pretty flexible, but I know I can't do it earlier than that. 

Thoughts? Comments? Concerns? Post them here! 


Also, since we have quite a few members, I'd like to update the Loli-tracker. Can you pm me a town, and let me know if it's ok for me to post your location (even a county is better than nothing!) That way it'll be a nice way for us to know where is best to plan events!
Hey guys! I was thinking about putting together a movie or bowling get-together, but I haven't been able to make a decision because I'd need to know when was best for you guys!
So, what days and times would be best for you guys in the month of April? 
Also, would you guys rather see a movie, or go bowling? If more people would like to go see a movie, I'll ask later which movie would be preferred based on which date is picked!

General Discussion/Announcement

Ok so we have at least like 5 new members to the group that I'm sure are eager to attend some meet ups since they have finally found a group of lolis nearby.
The problem is that unfortunately since I am one of the modds for the group and one of the main people who makes events, if not the only person who has made any events recently, I find myself in a dilemma of being able to plan anything further for a while.

It is my senior year and last semester of college. I am a full time theatre major with a very busy and unpredictable schedule
I have classes every day until late, rehearsals for a musical and a play that I have leads in both, a solo vocal recital to practice and plan for, 2 choir concerts, my internship, plus organizing the fashion show for the macabre fare, homework and a job on the weekends it is hard to maintain and then try to plan a meet that I don't know if I will be able to attend.

Also the fact that our other main modd crimsonsparkles is also is her last semester senior year of college and is doing stuff for the Macabre Fare and I-con staffing as well.

So my request for everyone here is STEP UP TO THE PLATE!!! You don't have to be a modd or a person that has been here a long time to be an event coordinator and plan a meet up.  Anyone can do it as long as you do your research on the location and pick a good date that would suit everyone.

The only thing I could possibly do with my current schedule right now is possibly plan one of those photo shoots or a very small tea meet up. But I have no idea what my future schedule is so it could possibly be a last minuet thing with no more then 1-2 weeks advance notice. My Wizard of Oz idea is still a go in my head but the location I want does not open up again until late April. And our big Atlantis meet will happen as well once everyone is out of school for the summer (or forever XD)

Hi peoples~

New member here! I've liked lolita fashion for years now, but I never knew anyone else who was into it (mainly because it's weird to bring it up in conversation...), so it was always this little love inside me that I never thought I could actually pursue. Only recently did I realize that the only thing stopping me was me =/

I mainly like gothic and classic, but my real passion is boystyle. In particular, ouji/kodona; I'm not into the punk look and aristocrat is a little more mature than what I like (aside: I wish brands made more shorts v_v). It's sad how few boystyle items and coords are in the world... my ultimate dream is to be an ouji innovator and become the patron saint of boystyle >:D

It's nice to see that there's an active local community here. I'm 22 and live in Carle Place, go to school at Stony Brook. It looks like there are a bunch of events and meetups around here, so I hope I can attend the next one and meet you all. ^^

Hello. :)

I recently found this group on here and I honestly thought that I was the only person on Long Island who liked the lolita fashion! Needless to say, I am super excited to have found this group. :D

My name is Shannon, and I live in Bethpage. Not sure of any of you a SUPER close by, but even so it's exciting for me to find a long island community! And I'm sorry if this entry is silly. LOL. <3

Winter Lolita Tea Party

This event will be our belated lolita day event and also like a holiday party.

Date: Saturday, December 10, 201
Time: 6:30pm until 10:30pm
Where: My House
67 Buckingham Drive
Holbrook NY 11741

I am reserving spots for 5 people (that's how many people my parents approved).

If you guys have any ideas for what we should do let me know.  We will be having tea and desserts dinner will not be served so you might want to eat before you come. I would like it if everyone could bring one food or drink item but let me know what you are bringing so we don't all get the same thing.

The party will be in my basement but don't worry its furnished and very roomy.  I'll be decorating the place up and we have tv, video games, air hockey, and pool down there too.

We can do a poll for a secret Santa or we can do a st. Nicholas shoe basket where we each bring one small candy, toy, or lolita accessory to put in our shoes under the tree.

At my house :)Collapse )

Future Meet Ups for Winter break. Ideas

I've had a few things going back and forth through here and facebook. Lolita day is approaching This year it is Saturday the 3rd. The past 2 years so far we have gone out to tea and then gone to see the nutcracker ballet at a local theatre but a few more ideas have sprung up.
Read more...Collapse )
I know this is bad of me but I made another lolita meetup on facebook and I know some of you don't use facebook at all (which I cant blame you) So I figured id post the details here in case you were interested and I would love it if you could come.

How to better promote the group?

So I've been getting asked a lot of questions on the lolita fashion and the long island community from people in college and some perspective convention owners who would like a lolita fashion show. But the problem is when I give them the name lolita or long island lolita they go home and reasearch it and come back even more puzzled on what this has to do with porn. Which obviously it doesent we have all had that discussion on why the book lolita relates to the egl fasion and blah blah blah... But my problem right now is for our community for li_lolita unless you specifically tell somone to look up L, I, underscore LOLITA they will most likely find numerous articles on this girl named Anne Fisher who the media dubbed the long island lolita because she was a 16 year old Wantagh resident who had an affair with an older man and attempted to murder his wife. She spent about 6 years in prizon and once she got out as an adault became a famous porn star >.<
I've seen so many varous communities have to put in the tilte of their pages "Lolita NOT A PLACE FOR PORN"
So for our community is there any better way to get it out there as not porn? Is there a way to fix any kind of settings so google puts in higher on the priority list? What can we do?

About the Hurricane...

I've already heard a few people died or were injured today and yesterday in other states, so I think we should have a post for when the hurricanes over, we can have anyone who's part of the LJ community check in. I'm not saying  "OMG someone's gonna die! Apocolypse!" but just to make sure no one's hurt or anything.
I also just wanted share one thing I found super awesome/usefull, fill plastic bottles or baggies with water and stick em' in your freezer, so if the power goes out, everything stays cold! Put a few extra in so you can transfer some to the fridge :3 (I'm sorry, I just thought this was genius, so I wanted to share~) Me and my dad finished doing this just a little while ago, which was the finishing touch on our preparations. But I still feel that  "okay gotta be busy... Nothing to be busy with... I'll busy myself by checking every blog I follow before the storm hits :D"
Okay~ Be safe everyone!

Two feeler posts

So two meet ups I had in mind that had to do with stuff going on with me :)

The first one is my birthday is October 4th so I was thinking Thursday October 6th a bunch of us could have a meet up at
The Secret Garden Tea Cafè & Gift Shoppe
225 Main Street, Port Jefferson, NY 11777
(631) 476-8327.
www.thesecretgardentearoom.com/
Tearoom is open 11-5pm and closed Tuesdays
I am off of school, work, and rehearsal so anytime is good for me.
Just let me know what is good for you
I'm hoping enough of you can come I'd like to see you all. I will invite some select few of my non loli friends but I'll dress them up.

The 2nd idea is...
I am doing a play that is a Victorian drama I think you will all like it plus I have the lead :) It is called Qualia origins of the undead. It is playing at the mills pond house in St. James. It is an actual Victorian Mansion not too far from the St. James train station and the Smithhaven mall. The show is every Friday in October except for the first week. There are 2 shows a night. One at 7:15pm and 9:30pm. If we get enough people for one show I can get a group discount.  Tickets should be on sale very soon.  Each ticket comes with the show, an art gallery, and a haunted house.
www.stacarts.org/events/show/98
Let me know what date and time works for you if you can come

Early planning for a Halloween party

Hey there! This is my first time posting anything on LiveJournal, please forgive any little trip-ups.

I feel like we should have a big ol' Halloween party in October. You may be thinking, "Halloween? Why plan for Halloween when it's still August?"
That's because I want a lot of people to come. I believe that if we plan a party way in advance, more people will be able to save the date. But the problem is what date to pick.

What days or dates do you feel are best? I think a Saturday would be great but someone else might think Fridays are good. Give your opinion so we can pick a good day / date that the majority of people can attend!
