Coordinates 02 & 03: Houston Tea Festival

Mar 29, 2016

A new festival was announced near where I live, so I decided to check it out. The first Houston Tea Festival was held on February 20-21. The theme was Alice in Wonderland, so coming up with outfits was no problem. The festival itself was very small and like most first year events, there are problems to fix, but overall it was alright.

On the first day, there was a costume contest, so I went over the top with a Mad Hatter coordinate. I managed to get second place in the contest and received a $25 restaurant gift card. Food is the best prize I could ask for.

The only tea I had was a hibiscus black tea topped with fruit. I don't like fruit, but I've been trying to eat more of it.

On the second day, I was part of the fashion show organized by the Houston Lolita Society. To match the festival's theme, the fashion show was also Alice in Wonderland themed. I wasn't planning to walk in the show at first, but the organizer invited me to take part. My outfit was inspired by the King of Hearts. There were some hiccups with the organization of the show. Mostly because things were never finalized and a lot of last minute decisions had to be made, so it wasn't a 100% smooth operation.

Nice cape flipping leads to cape difficulties.

Ultimately, I didn't like how my styling was and I would change several things next time I decide to wear this set. It has been months since I went to a public event, so it was nice catching up with old acquaintances and meeting new people! My life has changed a lot in the last few months, but I may be able to get outside more often now. I wasn't able to get that many pictures, but here are a few.


I still want this print. Maybe. Kind of. 

The next event I plan on attending is the Houston Japan Festival. I'm hoping to get more pictures to make a more interesting event post. If you see me, say hi!
