I have never been to the Oz Asia Festival before, so when the Adelaide lolita community was invited to put on a parade, I was quite keen to be a part of it. We were supposed to be doing a parade on both the Saturday and Sunday, but I only Attended the Saturday.
I wore my Cotton Candy Shop JSK, as dispite my initial reaction to it when I received it, it has fast become one of my favourite prints. It was a ridiculously hot day so instead of the matching OTK’s, I decided to go with some cute little ankle socks lest I die of heat exhaustion. Of course I brought along my lovely pink parasol, which was originally supposed to just be for show for the sake of the parade, but I actually ended up getting quite a lot of use out of it to keep the sun off.
The Oz Asia festival had set up this lovely Japanese inspired stage which they used to put on shows of different things relating to Japanese culture throughout the day. They had a few different drumming and martial arts presentations before they had our little lolita parade.
Everyone looked so beautiful all dolled up for the parade.
Once it was all done, we wandered around and had a look through all the different places. They had a “Passport” you could get stamped when you went into each different country’s area.
When we went to China, I found this place that sold these weird “J” shaped code things that got filled with ice cream, that happened to be gluten free! I just had to try one. One of my friends mentioned that the end of it looked like a butt hole, so we spent the rest of the day giggling about it.
It was pretty darn tasty though, and being so hot it was nice to have some thing to cool me down.
I really hope we get asked back again next year a I had such a great time!
