What I wore on Saturday at Katsucon 2014. I wasn’t feeling very well that day, so I wasn’t able to be as social as I’d like to be at the luncheon. Everyone else looked incredible though.
The jsk is Juliette et Justine. The blouse is from Rose Melody on Taobao; it has gold stripes through out the fabric. Necklace is Moss Marchen and the bonnet is made by me. I’ll have to take some better pictures when the weather gets better. The dress is so amazing in person.

The Ancient Town of Fenghuang, China
The town of Fenghuang is located in the Hunan province in China along the banks of the Tuo Jiang River. The town is exceptionally well-preserved and relatively untouched by modern urbanization.
The legacy of the Ming And Qing dynasties are preserved within the town, spanning 300 years of ancient heritage. In the ancient town zone, preservation of over 200 residential buildings, 30 streets, and hundreds of other ancient features and landmarks of the town has continued for hundreds of years.
Because of its unique geographical location, Fenghuang never suffered from the destruction of any natural disaster or suffered invasion from any wars. Even during the war of resistance against Japanese invasion, the isolated town of Fenghuang did not suffer occupation. In 1949, Fenghuang was peacefully liberated.
In the following 50 years, Fenghuang was spared any large-scale construction that occurred in nearby districts. As the people of Fenghuang cherish their valuable heritage, the local government has conducted strict control over all construction, continuing the preservation and the authenticity of the ancient town.
