Hello again, and happy new year! The fall and early winter is usually an overwhelmingly busy time of year for me, and this year has proved to be no exception. The weather in Alabama has been unseasonably hot even for the area, sitting at 70° F (21° C) on Christmas day causing tornados throughout the state. Tornado weather on Christmas was a first for me. o_o Anyway, let's start diving into the moments that made the last season or so memorable and fun.

I was also super pleased when I realized that Melanie Martinez was actually coming to Birmingham, AL! I've been in love with Melanie's music for a long while and loved her often J fashion inspired wardrobe, so getting to see her in person was amazing. She's about to launch the second leg of the Cry Baby so look on her site to see if she'll be in your area soon.
The Alabama Lolita Coterie had the pleasure of working with Fal-Con to plan a fashion show. I had a great time being able to hang out before the show, and hellomermaid did a great job with organizing the show.
On Halloween day itself, my comm had a meetup in Montevallo for a small artwalk. I still want to do a review of Bodyline l580 at some point especially having worn it now. I don't typically wear gothic, so I'm not 100% on my coordinate above, but I did have fun experimenting outside of sweet lolita.

November is my birthday month, and I have some pretty awesome friends to share great times with. The big event of the month for me was going to CONjuration. I was hesitant for a while to go as I didn't want to add more stress into the holiday season, but I'm so glad that I went. I've had a love for Harry Potter since around the time the Chamber of Secrets first released. The convention was a lot of fun with both panels and events I was interested in along with a solid dealer's room. I represented Slytherin in my group of friends, and I had a great time roaming the con and attending the Yule Ball with them.
My single favorite sight in the dealer's room was the tortoise roaming with a basket on its back to raise money for the Georgia Reptile Society. Who doesn't want to give money to a tortoise with fairy wings? I threw money into his basket than remembered to actually ask what it was going towards.

I saw the Force Awakens at the earlier 3D showing on the opening night. I was excited to get to break out my lightsaber and wear the Irregular Choice heels that I bought at their release. I was afraid that Disney would put another nail into Star Wars's coffin similar to George Lucas in the prequels, but I really and truly loved the movie. I'm already really looking forward episode VIII coming out in 2017.
