I was really exiced for the whole week, you know why?
I was going to Summer Darkness this weekend! And I was very lucky, I got a place to stay the whole weekend so I only had to travel to Utrecht once. (Thanks to my friend Ellis and her brother)I live far, far away from Utrecht.. somewhere on the countryside of Holland, normally it takes 1,5 hour to travel to Utrecht only there were proceedings on the railway >.<
This weekend it took more than 2 hours to travel to Utrecht with the train.. ughh it was awful!
I'm complaning too much! Let me tell you a little bit about Summer Darkness:
Summer Darkness is a dark underground interdisciplinary festival, located in the beautiful premises of the gothic city centre of Utrecht. Utrecht is a big university city and its centre is, just like Amsterdam, full of canals and historic premises like The Dom, a large gothic church and tower with a beautiful square. But Utrecht is also home to Rietveld (architect) and Miffy.Apart from the location, Summer Darkness outshines in a mixture of music, fashion, arts, market, and dark underground dancenights. Summer Darkness brings together a varied array of bands and genres today's underground has to offer. New-wave, ambient, electro, pagan, balfolk, neo-folk, EBM, darkwave, synthpop, futurepop, neo-classical, industrial, noise and now also witchhouse: take your pick, it’s all there.
Sounds interesting, don't you think?! Last year I went only on Sunday, I really liked it so I decided to go the whole weekend. It was so nice to see my friends again and to meet new people. I'm going to talk about Saturday now, only I want to tell everything.. that's not possible of course!
It all started at home, packing stuff and dressing up. The first day I wore pirate lolita, when I traveled to Utrecht I wore a toned down outfit:
Blouse: H&M Shirt: H&M
Bat Belt: Handmade
Shoes: New Yorker
I met Ellis at the station, we took the train and after two hours we arrived at Utrecht central station. It was taking ages to arrive in Utrecht and to make it worse one of the trains was leaking. It rained alot these days. Unfortunately... the leak was right above my chair... many, many water fell on my socks and one my skirt O_O It wasn't busy so it was possible to sit on another chair, lucky me! Otherwise I had to sit down on that place for 30 minutes... that could be a disaster for my skirt! In the end nothing bad happend to it...
After the great train and railway adventure we dropped our stuff and went to the local supermarket for some food. ^___^
Then we went to Utrecht central station to meet other lolitas....
After 1,5 hours, some fries, ice cream and talking about frills when left the station xD
First we went to the market on the Dom square, there were many nice shops at the square.
I liked the one with the demon horns and the cyberdog clothes the most~~
I did want to buy demon horns the first day only I couldn't try them on that day because of my enormous hat!
Let's show my pirate lolita outfit:

This morning I wore the same items plus:
Hat: Rosa Nitida
Bracelet: Gift from a friend
We also went to a Steam Punk fashion show, which was so amazing! <3
Not many pictures, I'm sorry!
The others were blurry >.<
Everyone was very hungry after the show, so we decided to go to a restaurant.
We decided to eat Italian food!
We decided to eat Italian food!
That's it for Saturday~~
Thanks everyone for the great day! ^___^
