02/06/2012 - International Lolita Day and Slimelight

Saturday was International Lolita Day. There was a meet that involved going to some kind of exhibition. I was tired and missed that part, but I still wanted to celebrate the day haha, so I met up with people after. It's been a while since I've worn lolita, and even longer since I've been to a meet, so it was really nice. Here's what I wore:
And I finally wore my headband from Necrosarium:

Dodo had also missed the exhibition, so we met up and bummed around Piccadilly Circus together whilst waiting for the others. 

We noticed a NeoPrint machine (something I haven't used since I was about 7), and decided to use it for laughs.

We pretended to be in the 90's haha. 

We finally met up with the others, and after failing to find somewhere to have cocktails, we settled for a pub instead.

I'd been wanting to go to Slimelight (a goth club) for a while, and as there was some kind of special night happening there apparently, I convinced Memz and DeMc to go with me. Conveniently, I live about 5 minutes away from the club, so after the meet, we headed back to my house for pre-drinks. 

First, though, Memz and I had to change, as we weren't sure whether or not we'd get in with what we were wearing (and clubbing in lolita is not so fun). I was lazy and pretty much repeated what I wore to see SCREW, but I had fun dressing up Memz, who doesn't usually wear anything that isn't related to lolita. 
After (I had too much fun with the sparkle brush, shh)

A lot of Nachtmahr, vodka and mead (I don't know why this was in my house lol) later, we were ready to go!

I'd only been to Slimelight once before, to see Nachtmahr, but we didn't stick around after that, so I'd never properly experienced it before. All I can say is that it's amazing, and now my favourite club. Lots of smoke, cages, and glorious industrial music. And a barbecue! There was also a crucifix:
The lighting makes this picture really scary somehow haha.

I'd heard that it's usually pretty dead in there, but there was some kind of  event going on, so it was really busy, and we met lots of lovely people. I got to practise French and Italian on native speakers, and I actually ran into the only cybergoth I'm following on Tumblr (I seem to be meeting a lot of people from Tumblr lately). Nearer the end of the night, we met some lovely gay guys, at least one of whom was into J-rock, so we hung out with them for the rest of the night, then all went back to mine for pizza at about 5am. They headed off at about 7am, and the rest of us collapsed into our respective beds, sleeping patterns thoroughly destroyed.
