March 2012 Newsletter

March 2012 Newsletter
From the Mods:
Hello, All!   I've always felt that March in Utah was a little crazy, with the weather trying to decide if it's going to let us have a spring, skip right to summer or keep us in winter a bit longer. This March seems to be no exception! Hopefully whatever the weather we will be able to bring our little community together and a little loli into each of your lives this month. This is the time to get a little crazy! Try a new style, make a new friend, post in the comm for the first time...Have fun with it! Feel free to post about your endeavors over at our LiveJournal community, too!
Announcements:
--Upcoming Meetup: Nihon Matsuri Saturday, April 28th 12 pm - 3 pm, SLC. Come to the Japan Festival with us!
--Upcoming Meetup: Our Annual Hogle Zoo and Grand America Tea in May! Celebrate u_loli's birthday with animals, tea, and a fun small gift exchange! Zoo admission is $10, Tea charge is $30 (actual price is $20, but as we went over that last time we are charging $30 and refunding any overcharge). Note: Grand America tea does serve non-tea beverages such as hot cocoa, etc. Please respond with dates of availability in May as we want as many people as possible to be there!
--We're thinking of putting in a Community Spotlight segment to help us get to know everyone even if they can't make it to all the meetups. It would include some general bio information, favorite style/brand information, and a picture. We would contact you for the info and ask your permission before spotlighting you. What do you think: yeah or nay?
An Introduction:
As this is my first time writing the newsletter and I've been a bit MIA, I thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Elizabeth, but I'm most often called Xen or Xen-chan (X-P) after my LiveJournal username (xeniph_b). I was introduced to lolita about 3 or so years ago and gradually evolved from a misguided Sweet (you should have seen my first attempts!) to a decent Classic Lolita. Always being interested in meeting fellow Utah Lolitas and finding the local comm rather dead, I arranged one of our first meetups in April of 2010 (I believe, anyone remember exactly when that was?) which helped to plan u_loli's first "official" meetup: our Annual Zoo and Grand America Tea. I've always been very interested in helping promote a sense of community and support for new, evolving and experienced Lolitas in the Utah area. To this end, I have taught Lolita panels at local conventions and do my best to plan meetups as often as my schedule permits. I love to answer questions and make new Lolita friends! In 2011, noticing that the mod for the original Utah community was on hiatus and we were getting an inordinate amount of spam, I started a new community: u_loli_2 and in one of the luckiest decisions in my modship recruited Chris as my co-mod (isn't he a DOLL?!) ;-) Anyway, that's a lot of dry stuff about me, but we'll save the "juicy" stuff for a spotlight, eh?
Hope to see you at an upcoming Meetup!

Aw, I might be in San Francisco on the 28th! I'll be vending at the Utah Ren Faire on weekends in May, so unless the tea falls on a weekday night I probably won't make it. Still, hi again!

Oooh! San Francisco! AP and BTSSB! XP

Honestly, we have a few people who work on weekends so we're going to try to make it on a weekday (should be possible since it's near the end of the school year). And woohoo! Where will you be at the Ren Faire? I'll be there either by myself or with the Order of the Azure Rose. My garb isn't quite ready, but I'll be wearing some not-so-great-fitting old stuff. ;-)

I know, right?! I'm entirely the wrong size for pretty much every item of clothing sold, but maybe I can pick up an accessory or two. New People is a fun destination anyway - and it's across the street from a little mall with a big Sanrio store *and* a taiyaki vendor! I want to go right now. (whine whine)

I'm not entirely sure where I'll be at the Faire. My vending partner is taking care of the logistics and I don't know if she's gotten her vendor's packet yet. I have no idea what I'm going to wear. I have no idea what I'm going to sell. :P Everything is in wads in my closet and on my sewing table but I'll knock together a few Ye Olde Ren Faire skirts and stuff like that.
