(Short) Introduction

Hi, i'm Jodi. I've been interested in lolita for a couple years, but just recently started dressing :] My interests outside of lolita include sewing, painting and reading. All I have is a tiny self made loli wardrobe right now, but I hope to change that soon. The style I like best is classic, but I also like gothic.  I live in the Rockford area, and would be interested in going to a meet up in the future. I hope I can make some loli friends!

Kollisioncon & ACEN

 I just found out about this new Con from ChiTownDollz called Kollisioncon. Apparently, Reactor is no more, and this is not run by the same people. It's going to be at the Hyatt in Woodfield, which is pretty convenient. 

I just signed up at the forums, and it looks like the "Panel Programming" area is locked, but I didn't see anything on a Lolita panel or any kind of a fashion show on the events and panels page. Would anyone be interested in doing a Lolita panel or fashion show there? I'd be up for co-running a panel and/or modeling in a fashion show.

In other news, ACEN was a blast!! I know many of us are friends on Facebook, but for those of us that aren't, here are the pictures I took (and also those that treesdancealone  took on my camera).

Additionally, I'd like to congratulate all the participants of Khaotic Kouture on what a wonderful job they did this year! Everyone looked so lovely, andtreesdancealone did an amazing job coordinating us!


Polymer Jewelry

You know the cute foods rings, necklaces, hair clips and so on.
I'd really like to learn how to make them for myself. I haven't found a very good tutorial on how to make them though. Or a go list of materials I should get to paint things on them, or gloss them to seal it. If you could point me in the right direction that would be wonderful!

To the lolis in the SW/W burbs of chicago

I was wondering if any of you would want to have a small meetup at the beginning of June. I know there are a bunch of meetups in the works for this summer but sadly I will be in Nashville for that entire time and will miss out on all of them. I was hoping to hang out with some of you that live nearby before I leave. I was thinking June 2nd, 3rd or 4th. I'm getting home on the 1st and taking off again on the 5th.

Some ideas I had for things to do:

My town, Lemont, is a rather small township with a few scenic places for picnics and also a quaint downtown area with antique stores, restaurants and boutiques.

I also live really close to Downer's Grove which has even better shopping and restaurants.

Brookfield Zoo is always fun

There are also several malls within 30 min, including two outdoor malls.
