Throw back ~ WGT 2016

Hello readers!

Another throw back post. Last time I wrote about the WGT exhibition and this time I'll show you the pictures I took at the Victorian Village 2016.
I'm not sure about the outfit I wore back then, but I everyone else looked great in my eyes. The lilac was still blooming and that was great for pictures. Also, the weather was great. Well, after a fairly heavy rain shower though. Since everything was outside, it was good to have no rain. Before that, I of course had to leave the tram in the exact worst moment of the rainy part of the day. After that I felt a little destroyed, so it was good my sister took some pictures before I left.

I'm a little sorry for the weird look of my wig, it was a last minute experiment. And somehow I look not really happy in any of these pictures but that's kind of how my face looks like.

This dress is great I like all the details. Hester also wore an amazing headdress. Well, everything with feathers is at least 70% more amazing than without.

This is not the only picture I took of Susi. But it was the only one in the village that wasn't ruined by the backround somehow. You can't really tell, but the haircolour perfectly matched the colour of the print of this dress.

Since everything black suits this event, Pia wore the most appropriate outfit with the silver print, all the crosses and overall dark appearance.

Not everyone wore black though. The Wave-Gotik-Treffen became more and more colourful over the last years. But that's probably just my opinion. It's because there are so many sub-styles in Gothic nowadays and some of them add a lot of colour to the dark scene.

We spend some nice time in the village sitting together, chatting and looking at well dressed people.
I knew nearly everyone, but I still don't know who  the girl in the AatP dress was. But I loved her outfit and this dress. It's a pity I didn't took some close-ups of the print because it would have been  worth it.

Yvonne was the most colourful of us in this green dress. The golden and black details are such a nice touch. I think gold and green looks great together. When I think about it, gold actually looks great with everything. But that's just my obsession speaking out of me.

Business up front party in the back. Seriously, the bag is hilarious. And it's probably just me, but it gets funnier the longer you look at it. I'm easy to amuse. Caros hair looks always great but here it's especially matching because it suits the look so well.

The Victorian Village was next to the Panometer Leipzig which was actually a gasometer.

And here are the pictures with all the pretty lilac.

Usually I don't like to intense shadows like this. But the effect here is nice. Nature likes Susi I guess because the sun and wind helped to make the pictures nicer. Especially the wind came to the best moments in just the right intensity.

At the beginning I wrote I wasn't sure about my outfit. I liked the colours and the hat is one of my favs. But it looked not that nice when I put it on. I love velvet, flowers and ponies and I think I managed to balanced all the colour nuances out. So in the back view I'm sure it was the hair. Hair is so important for the overall look and here it kind of ruined it for me.

I overdid it with the detail pictures and deleted accidentally the picture with the whole co-ord.

That`s it for today. I feel like I mixed a lot of tenses this time and I wish I would have learned this aspect of the language better, or at least would (have) put some more energy in learning it better. I'll may know better how to language in the future.

That was a call from the past so the next entry will be about something that happened in 2017. It will be the second part to the book fair this year.

 Thank you for reading!

  1. Since this blog is in english, I'll write an english comment ;)
    From time to time I visit your blog and enjoy your photos and reports! Thinking back to the WGT 2016, I'm not that happy with my co-od then (I have done better with that dress), but on the other hand I only decided one day before the Victorian Village to come to Leipzig, so well...:/ Actually I'm pretty out of Lolita these days, but lately got the itch again to finally sew that rokkoko-inspired dress I bought fabric (unsurprisingly the color is - green XD) for two years ago...I hope the kicks last, so I get to finish it to the LBM next year! And of course, I hope to see you there again!

    1. Thank you for your message. I just read it. The truth is I'm also pretty much busy with other things but try still to be at least a little active in my local community. I just love Lolita to much to just stop wearing it. It's so amazing to hear you want to it again too. I'm looking foreward to the LBM and hope we meet there. ^_^

    2. *want to wear it again too.
      There was a word missing.
