Are you a Lolita? Want to learn more about them? Come join us at Lolita Crush, our annual Lolita Tea Party on Saturday morning. The theme this year will celebrate games and fun and all things Loli. We may even have a few surprises in store, but you will certainly find lots of Lolitas, fun crafts, games, and more.
A super fun cosplay Pajama Party. Come as your favorite character or just in your PJs for games, shenanigans and the popular “sleepy time cosplay” contest. We will play fun games, gab a while and have a great time before bed (or maybe the dance, whatever)
