It was a momentous day on Saturday, July 19th. Tokyo Rebel and Baby, the Stars Shine Bright opened its doors for business, attracting Lolitas and Japanese fashion lovers (and awe struck passerbys) far and wide (some as far as Canada!).
I managed to take a few girls in line who wanted to dress their best for the special occasion.

|Cherry Blossom and Lychee Panna Cotta, Orange Creamsicle, and Chocolate Mousse|
I chose an Orange Creamsicle, which was a vanilla cake with orange marmalade filling and an orange slice on top! It was quickly devoured and tried not to buy another. Though at $1.50 it is definitely a treat worth indulging.
In addition to cupcakes they had single serving dessert cups and tarts! If you are in the area, it's definitely a place to check out and grab a bite (or 6).

Having been to bigger cons like New York Comic Con and Otakon, it makes me appreciate the quaint smaller cons. With larger events you have to really plan out your day, while smaller events you have the choice of going or not going -- and it's not a great disappointment if you are not able to go you will be able to find something else to do. In addition, I'm able to see the small con grow bigger.
This is why I'm growing to love Connecticon.

I'm sure readers and Lolitas across the East Coast have been overwhelming ecstatic about the news of Tokyo Rebel joining forces with Baby, the Stars Shine Bright and opening a store in New York City on July 19th.
Today the new website announced their location: 158 Allen Street! Located in the Lower East Side, it will fit right in with all the vintage shops and great eateries around the area.
Will you be there?
