There are so many truly impactful and powerful moments for me in the fashion, one being something that I vaguely mentioned in my previous 365 Lifestyle Lolita Challenge prompt (Day 332) so I'm expanding. I don't want to over kill this topic but I do want to write little snippets about each. They are things I never would have imagined possible or that they would happen to me, I am happy to have experienced or witnessed them though.

Being pulled up on stage during the performance of Brilliant Kingdom. This was impactful because I never saw this coming nor did I anticipate that Princess high that followed. This was so impactful to me because it briefly felt like something I had always tried to attain. Princess feels.
Now many of you may be tired of me at this point but I'm not, this print, as poorly done as it was (I'm currently reworking it), was a dream I have had for ages. I wanted to be an indie brand that could produce prints, of things I would like to wear, and aren't often found in the fashion. I never thought I would ever do it, after making this happen though I'm striving to work harder and to have all of my other weird and unusual prints made for my indie brand. I'm currently working on print number two for future projects so please stay tuned!
I would like to mention 2011/12 for Lolita fashion releases as that was the year that held my attention with releases. Series like Night Fairy Fantasia and Black Cat, Witch, & the Apple Tree were being released that year and things were simply magical.

So this was from my very first modeling gig, way back during the first Rufflecon, and the fact that I was even allowed on stage was staggering to me. I have since modeled for several different brands, both indie and Japanese and I still can't believe it. Another thing that I found out is that there are some things I have modeled that I never dreamt I would be able to touch (like that Meta bridal gown from the final RC) and then there are some that I knew completely fit my style that I had to have (butterflies and also named Spring of Middle Earth? Yes, please!).
These are two that will go together for the fact that I can somehow say I got posted in both the Gothic Lolita Bible and Kera online. I had not expected either and was shocked to see myself in pages that I follow. Pair that with being a model for both Triple Fortune and Metamorphose and I'm even more shocked.
These are just a few of mine, I'm sure you have some of your own that I'd love to hear, but if you would like to hear about more from others check them out in the links below! Be sure to also check out the Lolita Blog Carnival facebook page if you are looking to join in. All you need is to have a blog that is primarily Lolita fashion, have the posts for the LBC written in English (as well as whatever your first language is), and have it be 3 months old with 9 or more posts.
