I've been lurking for about a month, but I felt that was creepy so I'm introducing myself.
My name is Kathryne, I am twenty-three and I live in the blank spot between Keene, Nashua and Manchester. No really, that's how my parents picked where they were going to live. But I love living in a small town. My godmother has a tearoom in the next town over, where she does this lovely Victorian high tea. I'd love to do a meetup there but I know nothing about organizing them. Everyone in my area that I've encountered wearing lolita were really very nice and admiring of it, discounting teenage boys who know me and would shout names at me regardless of what I was wearing. But I also know them, and they're just that rude so they're easy to disregard.
People in my town are very mellowed to people dressing out of the norm because my parents were in the SCA, and after you've seen a bunch of knights and ladies having a fighting practice in someone's yard you've pretty much seen everything. And the fact that almost no one decides they want to live in this town forever unless they're an artist, farmer or historian leaves us in a very rich forgiving community.

Though I pretty much never wear it outside of cons or meeting my friends places, because I make it all myself and I only have a few outfits. I sew and design all of my own dresses, designed a line of loli dresses especially for large body types, and recently got my first commission for seamstress work.
My favorite styles are gothic and classic, but I also have a steampunk lolita dress which I made before I'd seen anyone else do it, so I wound up going in a completely different direction than most of the steamlolis I've seen since. Well, I've run on long enough. Thank you for reading.

I remember when I got into steampunk quite a few years ago, I said that I felt there oculd be crossover between it and Lolita.
Such cries of blasphemy were never before heard. And yet now, it is so popular. o__O

I think there is a guide on the Lolita handbook:
Maybe that would help?

I'm Meg from super-northern Massachusetts, by the way. Nice to virtually meet you.

"I live in the blank spot between Keene, Nashua and Manchester."

Lol. I suppose that's a smart way to look at it....

"discounting teenage boys who know me and would shout names at me regardless of what I was wearing"

Ha ha, I get that too. Maybe it's a NH thing? (Oh, dude, I see the Knights practicing in the park sometimes, too.)

Go DIY! Making your own lolita is awesome. I've been trying, but I never finish anything. @_@

Hi! I'm curious where is this tearoom, it sounds nice?
I don't actually live in NH but my brother lives around New Boston and I visit him there(next time will be in the spring) so I wanted to join in case there are any events or meetups I could go to when I'm there.
