The first day at WGT

Here comes a decent post about the first day at Wave gotik treffen when the first one was only a short sample. We arrived at Leipzig on Thursday evening by plane which was a good choice because there was a train strike in Germany. We flew via München where we had to wait over four hours for the flight to Leipzig, but the time run quite quickly by eating and drinking beer. I hadn't been in Germany before so everything was new and exciting. Leipzig turned out to be a most idyllic city with beautiful buildings and parks. From the airport we took taxi to the hotel which was situated close to the railway station so the location was excellent. Hotel was a four-star and comfy and clean. 
Like I mentioned, my first day's look was really casual. I put on a skater dress which is one of my favorite dress and I decorated it with a big ankh and a self made veil. I have wanted the veil for years and finally I decided to sew it. It's made of a satin band and tulle and in addition I put there rose trimmings. It stayed well and the wind waved it nicely. I had a shoe problem which I often have when I need to keep shoes on during the long days. In the end I ended up wearing Vagabonds which are comfy to wear. 
On Friday morning after eating the breakfast we put on the clothes and make up and headed to explore the city. We went also to Queen of Darkness city store which is situated in the city center.  I took a bunch of pictures from the store which was filled with lovely garments. There is a few pictures from there:
I walked all the time with my camera and I tried to photograph as much as possible beautiful outfits. The streets were filled with goths and it was so beyond belief  how beautiful and personal garments people were wearing. 
After getting the wristbands we left to Agra where we spent rest of the day by shopping and listening to the great music. I can't remember how much the time was when we ended up the hotel, but I fell asleep quite efficiently. The first day was over quickly, but I was happy how well things turned out.

    Unfortunately I live very far away, and here in Brazil there isn't really "goth festivals" or subculture stuffs like those on Europe. I hope you had fun, the pics are awesome!
