Huge post of 6 weeks and surprisingly little actual lolita.  
This post will not make purists happy. So much that is not proper lolita. I guess I was just not in the mood for it for much of the last couple months. Still, I hope there are some interesting things, if nothing else. -.-;;;

This post includes Acen pictures and a lot of randomness.

So after the crazy madness of the fashion show and carting alllll that clothing back to my room, I was about DONE with the corset, so I changed into belovedly shirred Angelic Pretty to lounge about the rest of the day and get drunk. FREE HAPPY HOUR FOR THE WIN OMG.

I almost didn't have any photos (not that it matters since the outfit doesn't really, well, MATCH), but then I saw Limebarb walking down the hallway on like the 5th floor (the hotel is all open in the middle so we could see them from where we were at the bar on 2nd level) and I about DIED, and luckily they got off on 2, so we (read: I, and the rest were like, where the fuck is she going and followed HAHAHA) sprinted over the elevator to accost fondle FANGIRL over them.

OSCAR AND ROSALIE LOVE. BIRDS IN HAIR LOVE. OMG this must happen soon for me.

My outfit is pretty much the same as above except with the clothing all Angelic Pretty and some AP hairbows added to the MESS OF IMPOSSIBILITY that is my hair, and the crown removed. And amazing people net to me are Lime Barb and company. Oh love.

And I added one of the keychains I got from ruin_hci to my hair, just because. :) A Bloody Mary or 3 may have had something to do with it.

Sunday, May 16

Twinning with the fabulous elerronyar
This flash makes my hair look horrible T___T

Massive meetup of awesome is massive. This wasn't even all the girls, many were still off to the side picnicking. I showed up super duper late when they were already taking this photo and I just kinda jumped in on the side! Haha!

Hilarious picture is hilarious.

Saturday, May 23 night
Let me just excuse this one first - the club had a special night themed "Otaku Night". I tried to pull in as many "otaku" themes as I could - hence the conglomeration of yukata with pink hair and cat ears and as much "kawaii" jewelry as I could. XD
Sorry, I know this isn't lolita either, but I got away with it last year, so I'm gonna include it anyway! XD

Sunday, May 30 - World Steam Expo in Detroit, MI

With performers like Abney Park, The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing, Tartanic, etc etc etc.
My favorite were The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing - they're hilarious!

100530 steam expo 004

100530 steam expo 005

The light really reflects from the cream blouse and bloomers onto the cage with this crappy camera T__T The vinyl actually is the same as on my craptastic "corset spats", so I think the photo throws it off a lot. Oh well.

Again, not strictly lolita, but whatever.

blouse, bloomers: Metamorphose
cage skirt: Kinki Kitty
corset spats: handmade
shoes: Demonia

How did you keep the 3 skirts on??
TheOsakaKoneko: hat masktheosakakoneko on June 3rd, 2010 11:56 pm (UTC)
I put a safety pin on either side of the black skirt and blue skirt to attach them (so 4 altogether) and then put the corset over all of it! It's mostly the corset that does the trick. It adds about an inch or so to the waistline but eh. XD It's worth it for the fabulousness.

My computer just crashed from awesome ♥
Okay, no it hadn't, but it near could have! All of these outfits are just awesome, and I really like all the non-conventional ones, lolita or not they are awesomesauce and make me really happy x) I can't even pic favorite ones, everything *_*!
TheOsakaKoneko: easter basket lolita!theosakakoneko on June 4th, 2010 01:07 am (UTC)

I'm glad it didn't or I wouldn't get a comment!! XD
I love the word "awesomesauce" and I am proud to have been sufficiently awesome to be deemed it! :D:D
Alicielaliciel on June 4th, 2010 01:03 am (UTC)
This is the most interesting d_l post I've seen this week! I love your quirky and unique coordinates, even if they may not be strictly "lolita"! You manage to shake things up with the patterns, the OTT hairstyles, etc., and create a totally original look, and I think it's awesome! <3 Hope to see more great posts in the future!
TheOsakaKoneko: pink pianotheosakakoneko on June 4th, 2010 01:08 am (UTC)
Hahaha Interesting is one word that can often be used for me, though the nuance may change depending on point of view! XD Thanks, I try! :D

Damn that's a lot of outfits! You're just incredible! o-o
Also, I honestly think you rock the wavy/curly hair really well!
How do you make 3 skirts work, anyway? XD
TheOsakaKoneko: pink pianotheosakakoneko on June 4th, 2010 03:48 am (UTC)
<3 Thanks!!!!
I described it above in the first comment, actually, but basically a few safety pins and then anchor it all in with the corset! :D It's pretty awesome really. :D
hairy potterkaede_hyde on June 4th, 2010 03:07 am (UTC)
Absolutely love all of them, especially the masquerade one *W*
TheOsakaKoneko: hat masktheosakakoneko on June 4th, 2010 03:49 am (UTC)
Yay!! Masks always make things better!
Spirit-himeellorgast on June 4th, 2010 03:23 am (UTC)
As usual, I love them all. The one with the long JetJ skirt is probably my favorite.
TheOsakaKoneko: innocent worldtheosakakoneko on June 4th, 2010 03:49 am (UTC)
I'm loving that skirt lately. :) Thank youuuu!! :D

OMGGG can I eat you, your so freaking cuteee! <3 Your outfits are seriously awesome, I love your fashion sense and your handmade outfits are amazing. Hope to see more posts from you in the future~
TheOsakaKonekotheosakakoneko on June 4th, 2010 04:04 am (UTC)
Oh, I post regularly! Just usually in big bunches like this, because I forget... XD
Please don't eat me though. ;) Not if you want me to post again!! I would not be cute with a big bite missing.
Thank you so much!! <3<3
Lump Lingered: aslanmilkteamilk on June 4th, 2010 04:35 am (UTC)
OMG XD I can't decide which ones I love most. Probably the 3 skirts at once coordinates and that maroon Baby dress and all the ones with that diamond skirt.

You are too fabulous!
TheOsakaKoneko: rosestheosakakoneko on June 4th, 2010 05:32 pm (UTC)
Whee!! Yay! I need to do that with some other skirts though, not always these 3 over and over! But mostly it was just because I didn't have time to come up with anything new before Acen! haha

I bought that red dress in the after-winter sale and this was actually the first time I got to actually wear it...awesome. But damned if that wig wasn't HOT AS HELL.

I'm tempted to have you make me a bonnet out of that diamond fabric. Have you done ones without the ruching, with just a flat fabric instead? Like the Chantilly ones? I want to make it myself but I'm so busy I don't know if I'd ever get to it T___T Than again, after your recent post I think you will have enough customers!! :D:D:D

I love the use of stompy boots. We need more alternative footwear with lolita!
Your posts are always worth looking at, it's never repetitive. :D
TheOsakaKoneko: osaka konekotheosakakoneko on June 4th, 2010 05:29 pm (UTC)
I love my stompy shoes, even though they aren't really dainty or elegant. The big boots are essential for concert-going though!! Makes you another 6" taller than even the regular stompies for seeing above anyone in front of you!! :D:D:D I'm so happy I finally have a pair. <3
Thank you!! :D:D
Leighaannonnie_mighty on June 4th, 2010 05:04 am (UTC)
wow! very eclectic! i dont really like the three skirt look because it reminds me of patchwork or something and has a weird silhouette from the side. but i dont think you should apologize for april 17! it is super bad ass!
TheOsakaKoneko: hat masktheosakakoneko on June 4th, 2010 05:28 pm (UTC)
That's cool! I love it from the side, like a big crazy bustle (I like big butts? XDXDXD, but I can totally see why you wouldn't. I love intermerging colors and textures and such, but it's certainly not very normally aesthetically pleasing! XD
Thanks so much for that though! That was probably my least favorite outfit from the whole month, like...I just can't decide if I like it or am completely embarrassed of it! XD I don't hate it, I just don't know...so I'm glad someone likes it! Sometimes it's hard to see things objectively when it's on you. XD

I can send you the pic I took of you in this shot. http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4062/4629799905_f4d162fffd.jpg
I also have the sunday group shot. Can I make a gallery or something on LJ? I could post all my Acen loli pics.

Crap...I don't know who you are!! D: Am I a horrible person now? T___T Help me match the username to the face/person!
But yeah you should definitely make a post with your pictures! I actually didn't take 1 picture the whole weekend..I fail like that! >< Oops...

holy FFFF, you look so beautiful in the fashion show pics. your designs rock! i do love your coords though. you are one of the most creative lolitas!!! <3
TheOsakaKoneko: luciferrottheosakakoneko on June 4th, 2010 05:24 pm (UTC)
:D:D Thanks!!!! I so didn't know what to wear for that...probably should have worn something more lolita, but since I was just going on as designer I figured I could be crazy and it was okay. People asked me what look/fashion I was supposed to be though, and I didn't know what to say... "um....uhh....victorian prostitude??? heheheheh...." haha

Thanks!! :D You are too flattering <3
leine_blackleine_black on June 4th, 2010 06:20 am (UTC)
All your outfits are super crazy and cool! XD
I have to say that since the first outfit until the last one, I notice that you loose some weight @w@

My fav are 19,21 and 22 of may!
TheOsakaKonekotheosakakoneko on June 4th, 2010 05:22 pm (UTC)
No weight lost in this set, actually - actually a couple pounds put back on! - but definitely in the last few months before this set! XD Maybe it's just settling into better areas? Since I just lost it all in the few months before this set.

Thanks! :D
blackswan72blackswan72 on June 4th, 2010 06:36 am (UTC)
Once again your outfits are incredibly amazing! You have a very unique take on lolita! I love it!

TheOsakaKoneko: osaka konekotheosakakoneko on June 4th, 2010 05:17 pm (UTC)
Hahahaha thanks! It always makes me laugh a bit though...my fashion sense is basically just "okay, am I wearing enough layers/shit on my head? Yeah? Yeah? Okay let's add 3 more things for good measure...PERFECT!" hahaha

lustidylliclustidyllic on June 4th, 2010 07:35 am (UTC)
The Assemblage 23 concert and club outfit is too fantastic for words. Asis the last ne with the cage skirt. Actually, a lot of these are. Great post, I wish there was more variety like this all around.

I'd like to add you, I hope you don't mind :)
TheOsakaKoneko: masqueradetheosakakoneko on June 4th, 2010 05:16 pm (UTC)
Yay!!!! :D I love that outfit. Hardest thing I've ever made in my LIFE though. XDXD
I will add you back! :D Anyone with that icon must be cool. XD
~*Claro de Luna*~l_clarodeluna_l on June 4th, 2010 11:48 am (UTC)

And what are you doing??, you look so thin *envy*... awwww, wonderful *0*
TheOsakaKoneko: hat masktheosakakoneko on June 4th, 2010 05:15 pm (UTC)
:D:D Yay!!
I was doing Medifast. I lost like 55 lb in about 6 months. I stopped about 2 months ago, but I'm going to start back again. I put a few back on and I wasn't really at goal when I stopped - just needed a break with Acen and all. But now I'm feeling motivated again so I'm going to lose the last bit! :D It's a good program :) and I really needed it!
irohamomijiirohamomiji on June 4th, 2010 02:32 pm (UTC)
You look gorgeous! You make me want to sew, so bad!
TheOsakaKoneko: novalatheosakakoneko on June 4th, 2010 05:13 pm (UTC)
I need to get my own motivation on that end back as well...so many projects that need doing! >< Please do, and show us over at sew_loli!!! :D
