DC Anime Club
Presents Lolita Picnic
DC Anime Club on October 2, 2010 at DC Freer Gallery Garden from 12:30pm-5:00pm will have a Lolita Picnic. For those who are unfamiliar, Lolita is a fashion subculture in Japan that is primarily influenced by Victorian children clothing, as well as costumes from the Rococo period. Lolita has made this into a unique fashion by adding gothic and original design elements to the look. From this, Lolita fashion has evolved into several different sub ...styles and has created a devoted subculture in Japan. The Lolita look consists primarily of a knee-length skirt or dress, headdress, blouse, petticoat, knee-high socks or stockings, and rocking horse or high heel/platform shoes.
Attendees are encouraged to bring food, since there will be a potluck with the photo shoot.
We will meet up at Smithsonian Subway Station (Blue/Orange Line) at 12pm, then proceed to the Mall. Come in your best Lolita outfits.
THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
