Well, Acen 2011 is pretty far away, and most lolitas (at least in the Chicago area) are more concerned with the upcoming Kollisionkon and usual meet ups. I hope that I can go this year, but I mostly cosplay. You ought to join the other lolita communities, if you haven't already:

EGL - the most active
The Chicago area lolita community - we also have a facebook page
A lolita community made specifically for ACen - it's not active much now; just wait until around February and people should be posting more

I'll definitely be there in lolita. I plan on dressing in lolita for two of the days I'm there. If my second Hetalia cosplay doesn't pull together, it'll be three, including Thursday night.
2012 Plans:
Pokemon Gijinka: Glaceon [60% complete: design, dress, and fabric]
White Mage [Original] [15% complete: design, patterns, fabric]

I am wearing Lolita as well. Probably saturday more then likely. I am keeping an eye on the livejournal group though to see if anybody organizes a meet up through there. :D
What if the hokey-pokey is what it is all about?

I might do lolita (though it's a slim chance...) Nothing special though just a simple classic lolita dress!

-gasp- Deleciel, you're going to ACen?! I'm missyasogami on the egl forums. I nearly cried when I got the blouse in the mail. It's beautiful.

I'm putting together my first lolita coord this year. I'm super excited. It's going to be sweet lolita. I can't wait! (also disregard my sn, it's not what you think. haha)

I'll be going all three days in gothic lolita! Trying to test out my sewing skills now that I'm a fashion design major, so I want to show off what I'm capable of!

I'd love a meet-up or a photo session with everyone...That would be lovely! Hell, I'll even bring cupcakes if there's a gathering. *Bribe*

oooh man, that'd be cool, we could have some sort of potluck? I'm going to try to learn making macarons for my birthday. I just learned how to make rainbow jello, too!

A pseudo-pot luck/picnic may be fun (weather permitting!). Stuff like finger sandwiches and what not would be nice depending on how many people would should show up. I'll be bringing a cooler or two to begin with to keep fruit and what not in my room, but we'll also have a fridge so I could prepare sandwiches or other things and then bring a picnic basket if others are willing to participate!

Sorry, I'm a big dork who likes planning things. I just planned my massive 21st birthday party and it went smoothly despite the 100 or so people there. Everyone had a wonderful time and it was fun : ) So I think I'm in a "planning" type of mood!

That sounds absolutely lovely! I'd be in--and I'd bring food! :D

Fantastic! If I can arrange a pot-luck, I'll have a list of who is bringing what (once we have more participants) and I can try to get some blankets and picnic baskets. I thankfully have a car and will be there on Thursday evening so either that night or Friday I can get what I need.


I was thinking Saturday around noon---keeping in mind events that people will want to go to as they are announced. Time is flexible as there's 2 months to go!

Yes it's me and I'm glad that it fits you! I got your letter earlier, did you get mine?

I'm going to try to make it this year.

Just to let you know, there is usually someone who hosts a meet up on Acen Sunday that involves a picnic lunch and swapping/buying clothes from each other. Do you know a girl named Shannon? She's originally from Illinois but moved to Michigan and she hosted the meet up last year. I doubt that anyone has discussed such plans yet, but I'd check Acen_gosurori and Chigothloli on livejournal for Acen meets.

You can try to host a pot luck during the weekend, but it's best to do it as a private RSVP party. Be sure to follow your hotel's rules - room parties can get wild, and you really don't want a bunch of random-hungry congoers barging in for free food (that is, if your room is within the con's vicinity). I know for sure that Acen is still having trouble with serving foods at panels/programs (i.e: maid cafe).

And a heads up, the majority of lolitas attending will be in cosplay for the first two days.

Thank you for the heads up : ) I checked Acen-gosurori and someone mentioned that they will not be able to host the meet-up? I'm not sure if that is Shannon, I don't know her, but I'd be willing to organize something if there would be enough interest.

Your advise about the RSVP definitely makes sense---You'd have to do that with a pot-luck anyway, so like I said if there's enough interest then I can plan something more solid with an RSPV. I've been checking Acen_gosurori every few days or so to see anything so most of the planning would transpire on there. Hopefully it is something we can do!

Also, you're going as Deadmau5? That's completely and entirely awesome!

I've always liked the idea of a sunday lunch/pot luck thing. Being as busy as the weekend can be there are a lot of things to do on Saturday and not so much to do on sundays. I would really like to go to a meet-up myself because I couldn't go to the last few ones. :(

Also, an idea about the food thing. There were other years I saw it was planned to meet somewhere inside the hotel but (weather permitting) they moved outside for a picnic I think?

Sunday would be a good idea since there really is less going on. I think a picnic would be more fun. My hotel is further away from the con hotels so it would be inconvenient to do it in my room. A picnic would be fun because we could have a designated area for photos/food. Mostly, I just like having an excuse to make cupcakes and cucumber sandwiches (my favorite!)

I think sunday is a good/best day. I know I am a loli that cosplays and I know I am not alone. :D And there are some nice areas outside of the hyatt for a picnic!

I will be in loli all weekend, but I definitely understand that many of the lolitas go in cosplay and save their outfits for meet ups and what not. I definitely don't want to take that away from anyone : ) Hell, I'd be in cosplay if I found a character I wanted to cosplay, but unfortunately I have fallen somewhat out of the anime scene : (

Last year, everyone met up inside the convention's foyer (behind the elevators - inspite of being asked to move, we still caused quite a scene). Being outside would be nice, weather and location permitting.

Yeah, but I dunno if I'll feel like wearing lolita in it. Man, that thing looked so ghetto.

Hopefully I can make the new one look more professional.

I like this picnic idea! (゜∀゜)
I'm up for anything! I'd love to meet new lolitas! ^_^
Hopefully someone is up for planning this and getting it all organized! I'm not too good at this sort of stuff while I'm still in school. So I don't have time to do planning, and I'm also in a sport... >_< My time is taken away! Ahhh! D;
But, if this is planned, I'll gladly put my part of the share and bring some yummy treats! ( ^ω^)

It fits me a little big in the waist but the waist ties are awesome, luckily had enough room for my bust,though. I did! Sent your letter today :D

I might bring back an cosplay from last year and kimono but I mainly plan to wear my lolita clothes C :
