13. What's the most outrageous thing you've ever worn? I once went to see a play my friends were putting on but a person who played a judge didn't turn up so they drafted me in by sticking a gown over a puffy skirt and a wig over my long curly hair and it was awful.

14. Are you involved in any other fashion subcultures? Before I found lolita I  dressed cybergoth, (hence my love of industrial music) and I still do sometimes.

I went to a few bjd/lolita meets in Nottingham over the last couple of years but that's fallen apart since I went to uni, my intension is to find some more though!
Do you go to/organise any?

I've only been to 2 so far. I'm quite new to lolita so I'm finding my feet. I went to one in York and another in Manchester and I really enjoyed both. I've made a habit of sourcing out other UK lolitas so I don't feel surrounded by utter strangers if I come across them at meets, mind if i add?
