The final lolita event for Delta H Con 2018 was the tea party on Sunday afternoon. Held in the Houston Marriott Westchase Hotel, the tea party was titled Sweet Summer Social and it had a cute subtle country theme. Since I’m a proud Texan, I decided to wear a cowboy inspired outfit to match the theme.
At my table, sat a fine group of talents: Tyler/ScarfingScarves of Last Week Lolita News, Nina/Chokelate of Lockshop Wigs, Halley/Miscy of The Black Ribbon, and Callie/Courtney of Ota-Q Apparel. Check out their works and shops when you have a chance!
Actually, I was not at the table for long Mainly, I photographed the attendees in the gorgeous hotel parlor. I also ended up hosting the bean bag toss mini game midway through the party. One attendee betted against my most prized item in my wardrobe, the AatP hat stack. It turns out my competitive nature helped me succeed at defending my honor. It was great meeting both new and familiar faces!
Country is rare theme to see in ouji. In particular, cowboy ouji has only been executed once to my knowledge. My look was based around this Alice and the Pirates hat that I bought solely for the purpose of making a cowboy coordinate. The hat goes well paired with the Miho Matsuda bolo tie I bought in Harajuku earlier in the year. The only thing that could have completed the western theme would be cowboy boots, but I don’t own any since I’m still searching for the perfect pair. This coord? On fire. My body temperature? Also on fire. Texas summers don’t play.

Lastly, here are some goofy offshots Meci captured of the group. Overall, my con experience was very relaxed and chill. . I wonder how they will decide to grow their fashion track for next year. At times, it was a little hectic being photographer, but that was mainly from me bringing the wrong lens. I learned my lesson for next time and that is I should invest in a zoom lens for event photography. Thank you to Delta H Con for having me as a guest!
