Hellocon 2014 - part one

Nädalavahetusel toimus Helsingis Hellocon 2014 - Skandinaavia suurim (ja minu teada ka ainus xD) lolitadele mõeldud üritus. Päev varem tuli Katrina siia ning me üritasime Ashizawa Yukole ning Midorile sobivat kinki leida. See osutus üsnagi raskeks, kuid lõpuks leidsime enam-vähem sobivad esemed. Ööl vastu laupäeva magasime suhteliselt vähe ning sõitsime esimese laevaga Soome. Magamatus, kuumus, meigi tegemine ja laeva kõikumine ei mõjunud mulle just kõige paremini ja mingil hetkel andis mu organism lihtsalt alla. See polnud just kõige toredam sõit. Õnneks hakkas enesetunne Helsingisse jõudes paranema. Käisime ruttu hotellist läbi ning liikusime Gloria suunas. Teel sinna nägime ka teisi lolitasid ning järgnesime neile.

Hellocon 2014 - the biggest and probably the only lolita convention in the Scandinavia was held in Helsinki last week. Katrina came one day before Hellocon to my place and we went looking for presents for Ashizawa Yuko and Midori. It was quite hard, but in the end we did manage to find somthing more or less fitting. I hardly slept on the night before Hellocon and we took the first ship in the morning to Finland. The lack of sleep, heat, doing makeup and the sea waves didn't do any good to me and at one point my body  just couldn't handle it all. Let's just say it wasn't the best ride of my life. Thankfully I started feeling better when we finally arrived in Helsinki. We went to the hotel, left our luggage there and headed to Gloria. On our way there we saw other lolitas and just followed them, since we haven't been to Gloria before.


Cloudberry Lady kleidid // The dresses from Cloudberry Lady

Kui me parajasti jalatseid vahetasime tuli Sandra koos Midoriga trepist alla ja ma hüppasin talle kaela. Me pole üksteist Jaapanist saati enam näinud. Nii tore oli temaga taas juttu ajada ♥ Nägin siis esimest korda Midorit ka lähemalt. Ta oli nii armas ja väike. Ajasime veidi juttu ning nad suundusid edasi backstage ja meie peasaali. Seal toimus Q&A Midoriga, mida viis Sandra läbi. Midori kohta sai nii mõndagi huvitavat teada. Peale seda oli brand vs off-brand hääletus, aga seda ma teatud põhjustel pikemalt kommenteerima ei hakka. Peagi algas moeshow, kus Cloudberry Lady kleit oma originaalsusega kogu tähelepanu endale sai. See oli teistest nii erinev ja ilus.

Sandra and Midori came down the stairs while we were changing shoes and I ran up to Sandra and hugged her. We haven't seen eachother since Japan, so it was really nice to talk to her again ♥ This was also the frist time I saw Midori up close. She was so cute and small. We talked a bit and they headed backstage and we went to the main hall. There was a Q&A session with Midori where Sandra acted as a treanslator. Got to know new stuff about Midori. After that there was brand vs off-brand voting, but I'm not going to talk about that for longer because of certain reasons. Soon after that there was a fashionshow where a dress from Cloudberry Lady really caught ones eye. It was so different from everything else and really pretty.


Järgnes Q&A Ashizawa Yukoga, mida vahendas taas Sandra. Nagu truule Atelier Pierroti fännile kohane istusin Maka ja Katrinaga esireas. Peale seda vaatasime nii sama ringi ja ostsime paar asja. Kui juba lolitariided kohale tuuakse peab ju head juhust kasutama. Mingil hetkel kohtusin taas Sandraga ning me läksime teisele korrusele pildistama. Ajasime veel veidi juttu ning peagi liitusid meiega Katrina ja Maka, kellega me samuti grupipildi tegime. Loodetavasti ilmuvad need varsti ka netti.

After that there was a Q&A with Ashizawa Yuko and Sandra also translated this. As a true Atelier Pierrot fan I sat frontrow with Maka and Katrina. After that we just looked around and bought a few things. One just has to use the chance to buy lolita clothing withouth getting customs invovled etc.  At some point I saw Sandra again and we headed to the second floor to get our photos taken. We chatted for a while and were joined by Katrina and Maka. After a while we got our estonian lolitas picture taken. I hope those will be uploaded soon.

Soome lolitade moeshows osalejad // The lolitas who took part in the fairy forest fashionshow

Pildistamine venis veidi pikaks ning me jõudsime järgmisele moeshowle kahjuks alles poole pealt. Moeshow teemaks oli muinasjutud ja seal osalesid Soome parimad lolitad. Mul jäi suu lahti seda nähes. See oli lihtsalt nii vapustav. Ma pole varem nii head moeshowd näinud. Õnneks lindistas keegi seda, nii et ma saan seda ka siin näidata ja vapustavad kogemust jagada ♥

It took quite a while to get our photo taken so we missed half of the next fashionshow. The theme was fairytales, the show was called  fairy forest fashionshow and the best finnish lolitas took part in it. I was so amazed by the fashionshow. It was just so great. I have never beofore seen a fashionshow that good. Thankfully someone recoreded it, so I can share the fantastic experience here ♥

Hotelli jõudsime tagasi seitsme paiku õhtul ja saime siis esimest korda sel päeval süüa. Olime üle 12 tunni näljas olnud, aga see oli seda väärt. Õhtul oli hotellis mingi pidu ja lärm kostis ka meie ruumi, kuid me olime nii väsinud,et jäime sellele vaatamata koheselt magama. // We went back to the hotel and ate for the first time in the day  around 7 in the evening. We were starving for over 12 hours straight but it was so worth it. There was some kind of a party at the hotel in the evening/night and the noise even reached our room, but since we were so tired it didn't really stop us from falling a sleep really fast.

Nonii, nüüd sai esimene päev vist kirja. Nägin palju oma iidoleid, kuid ei julgenud neile läheneda. Nad olid lihtsalt nii perfektsed ja ilusad. See on uskumatu kui head ikka Soome ja Venemaa lolitad on. // This was my summary for the first day. I saw so many people who have been inspiring me in my lolitalife, but I was too afraid to go up to them and ask for a picture. They were just so perfect and beautiful. It's really unbelivable how good the Finnish and Russian lolitas are.

Mu riietus oleks pidanud veidi teistsugune olema,aga kuna mul oli laeval nii paha olla, siis ma unustasin enamus oma aksessuaaridest ;A;  // The outfit should have been a bit different, but since I felt so sick on the ship I forgot half of the accessories I wanted to use ;A;

    1. Thank you so much! You have no idea how happy your comment made me ♥
      I had the same problem - I was too shy to approach people at Hellocon, but I do hope to be more social next year and actually go up to people and say that I love their outfits ;A; And I hope we will have a chance to talk to each other next year (。’▽’。)♡

  2. Lovely pics! I'm so happy that people from abroad also came to our convention. :3 And I'm happy to hear that so many liked our fairy tale show!

    I started to follow your blog! You're so stylish and it's fun to try to understand the written Estonian. :D (I'm so embarrassed of the crappy Estonian I talked to you at the tea party, sorry XDD).
