Raicon Spring Edition 2017

March already, which means that I have not posted for a whole month. This and that happened. Some changes at my workplace, which may be considered as 'good' (temporarily moved to accounting section). Also college, which I enjoy. Unfortunatelly it leaves me with less time for writing notes for a blog and other similiar, more creative activities. But justbetween us, I have to tell ya, that I've prepared a note about Valentine lolita meetup before this one, but somehow managed to delete it (kids, don't be like Meshya, don't be so clumsy like me, haha), thus silence. I will rewrite it, so you will eventually get it (meantime you can check the >>>>VLOG<<<< from that event), but today I give ya a short photo relation from Raicon. It's manga & anime convention, that takes place in Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall, two times a year. The one I was part of yesterday, was a Spring edition. It brought together few hundreds people (unfortunately I have no official numbers, will update when they will appear), with passion for japanesse pop culture, who appeared to enjoy every bit of it. Take a look!

 Line to the entrance. Dosn't look that bad, eh? 
Well, let me just tell ya, it was loooooooonnngggg!
After my ticket got checked, I got a flashy, yellow wristband and...went to see what is goin on.
That's how main stage looked like.
One of the halls with shops. Whatever the time- full. 

 Vintage game room
Artists alley. One of the places I always visit several times, because that's where you can find most interesting things IMO. Some people have a tallent, that's what I can tell ya. 

Board games corner at the begining of Raicon...
...and in mid day. Packed!
There were many attractions and interesting things, but what I love the most are people (yes, I know I repeat myself). First- cosplay. 

 Hey, can You spot me on this picture? *hint- I have 'puff''*
And some cute lolitas! 
Heeeey! What's this Usagi doin' here? :P 

Few words to sum it up~~
Conventions are not my thing anymore (which I wrote about before), but I still liked it. Maybe because of melancholy. It's so nice to see so many people, who gathered in one place to just celebrate the passion and love for something. Seeing their creativity and approach on the topic, makes me remember how I was in the past. 
Now, said that, we can all confirm that I just belong to dinosaurs generation, hahaha :D And with this positive accent, I finish this note. Until next time!

Remember 'meet the artist project'? Well, lolitas made their own verion of it and I couldn't resist to join. I used Spanish Lolita Aliance's template.

Lolita meetup at MOCAK- Museum of Contemporary Art

Woohoo, back in Edinburgh, people! It was so hard to leave my doggie (yes, I am sorry but he is and always will be my number one) parents and sis back at Poland but I had to fly back to Scotland- to work and other 'normal life' related 'things'. Not that I don't like it here- just the oposite! But after spending so much time in my hometown, having maybe the best Christmass ever (even if I am not religious), meeting with several friends... pretty sure you get the idea. Anyway, what I have for you today is a photo documentation of my last lolita meetup in Cracow. Along with the team that I've been with in Prague and Kutna Hora, we went to >>>MOCAK<<<. 
This place took my interest earlier but I never had chance to visit it, cuz it's in kinda less popular district. Yet this time, besides usual expositions, there was one that was inspired by Andy Warhol's person, so we all got extra motivated. 

On 8th of January, despite very low temperature (it was minus 9 celcius....even Vistula river froze....)
we met at MOCAK's entrance.
Me (sorry for color difference on this pic, I dunno what I did with original file and I used some strange filter on this one..)
 and Mysza were little bit earlier
Kaha and Keczup joined us few minutes after. It was getting late, so we rushed to buy tickets and quickly jumped onto 'modern art' world.
 'What author wanted to say thru his work' was one of the most frequent questions I had in mind, while exploring wild drawings
 or compositions

 like this one for example.

 Suddenly we found a light room (literally I'd say). Every visitor was making a selfie or pictures in this room, so we couldn't be worse, right?

 Milions of pics been done, even group photo, so we could continue our tour. We saw talking crow with leather jacket,
 black dots on floor
 'stuff' in general.

 Then we realized what time it is and that we have to run to restaurant if we don't want to loose our reservation for table. Luckly, we got there quite fast. 
 Orders started from drinks. Everybody got something warm. Obviously.

 Oh, at the place we also met Menoa, who did not manage to get to MOCAK. Pretty as ever, with sparkling makeup.

 They made us wait for food but it was quite delicious!
 Because earlier I had no chance to take picture of Kaha and Keczup, I did it in restaurant. Lightning wasn't best but it's still better than nothing.
 And one more group picture. 
It was such a great meeting. I enjoyed every bit of it and I will surely go to MOCAK again in summer, maybe the girls will join me again? Let's hope so!

Now, as an extra, a short vlog from the MOCAK:
