Dream Lolita Outfit............s...

So La Vida Frills has this contest, I was not sure if I should enter or not because I am only an upcoming Loli, but I sat down at my computer and came up with two outfits that would fit me and I would SOSOSOSOSO wear! Though, lacking in any sort of Lolita clothes and accessories, makes it hard for me not to get attached to the idea of actually owning one of these outfits. But anyway, I want to display them on here before I enter the contest (which will be like three minutes from now.)

Well, through a couple months of research, I have learned that if I do become a half or full Lolita, I would defiantly turn to Sweet and Punk Lolita. At first, I was going to go for a Gothic/Sweet style, but it always seems to come out more Sweet than Gothic. I have found myself in love with that style for its way of emulating who I am and what I love. Here is the dream outfit for Sweet Lolita!

This outfit basically brings my favorite little things from when I was young. I loved Disney movies when I was a kid and still love them to this day. I also find plush totally squee worthy! I love festivals and malls, especially those ones that still have to GOREGIOUS carousels, hence the headpiece. Clovers too are a symbol of another thing I love, the United Kingdoms and Ireland! I would love to go there one day!

`Earrings: Fanplusfriend
`Cat Plush: Emily le Strange
`Bear: Angelic Pretty
`Shoes: Unknown...sorry

The second outfit is a Sweet/Punk Lolita mix. This is a more modern version of me in an outfit. I love media (be it movies, food, brands, art, music, festivals, and so on)! I love it as a hobby and an obsession nowadays. I also have rediscovered my love for Wonka Brand Candies and discovered a love for Hello Kitty. I also have found a soft spot for monsters of all levels of cuteness, found two sushi types that I want to try, as well as rekindling my love for the Renaissance, hence the puffy collared shirt.

I am really excited to see who wins this contest and what they win, La Vida Frills is a very interesting blog to read if your new to Lolita fashion like me. Ado for now!

Sorry it has taken me so long to post!

Ugh, I have been way to busy for my own good. I have been having occasional family arguments, hating my job, and loathing my fellow class mates and their annoying personalities. I think the only thing that is keeping me sane right now is the ability to escape into my room and come home to a cat who seems to be overly excited when I do come home. Today I am home sick, so expect a bunch of entries including my usual art update to follow...now!

So, remember my dear friend Dumpling Wolf? Well, I was working on him last week and I walked away for two minutes and he had broken into two ragged pieces. Rest in Piece Dumpling Wolf Ikibana. Your head shall be mounted on a cylinder and your butt shall become a shrine.
I also got my cups out of the kiln and shined up so here they are as well! 
I also made a little scoop for my kitty's little snack times. 
And JULS JULS JULS JULS!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I love my bead! It is so so so so so so GORGIOUS!
So as a gift upon suggestion, I have made these cabs! And I will send you a couple once I get the chance!
I also have a couple bread shaped ones for you if you want a couple of those too, they are quite thick. 
Well, that is my art update! Ado

Sorry I don't have a lot of time to post today. I am going to be at work and then taking an escape in my room with Disney movies, my shopping goodies, and my kitty-boo. But I wanted to show off my plates!
But first, the plates and the start of my ikibana vase! My plates came out if the kiln as I was starting my ikibana. I don't like my ikibana much but t is only the beginning of it. My design was to make a vase that made it's plants flail out and even show the water in the pool. So it can be decorated. I also added a spout that should have ended up looking like a dragon or a wolf, but it ended up looking like both! I introduce to you DUMPLING WOLF! xD

Annnnnd now my plates! These will be going to show hopefully and have taken up a home in my schools showcase for the time being. Unfortunately for me.

I also found out that I am one of the winners in a contest held by the wonderful Juls from Julsbeads! I bought a focal bead that is so cute and is based on an Indian Blanket. I used to have three indian blankets growing up and would love to have another again. Their not the softest things ever but they sure are COZZZY! I shall show off a picture of it once I get it. Thank you so much Juls-luff!

Well, that's all I have for today. For now, ado!

Lolita and Cosplay Dreams

I would love to slam costumes and outfits like these into my closet! I am that type of girl, you know? I love looking at cosplayers and lolitas. I those are really FULL OF EPIC WIN! So, now, I am thinking that I want to start doing it. I was, and still am, a hoodie and jeans lass who loves cute and sometimes creepy accessories as well as my past Halloween costumes of which I use bits and pieces of when I want to. I love feeling like I am beautiful and that everyone is watching, maybe because in my High School, I don’t get that. I know I am not the prettiest person ever, but I love it when I feel like it. I also love it when I can be with my friends and feel like I belong, which sometimes I don’t. But these are things I can find in these worlds so to speak. I need to be a part of it for real this time. I have been going to conventions for a while now, and have only worn simple things, so my goal is to have SOMETHING to wear there this year. Think of it as a debut, yes?

Any Lolitas and/or Cosplayers who can offer advice would be AMAZING!! I may not start making stuff until the winter but I want to flesh out some details. I am not to savvy on the mangas because I more go to the conventions for the art, skits, and such that make them entertaining.

Possible Character Cosplay’s
`Kunogi Himawari and Pipe Fox from xxxHolic: I don’t know her character very well, but I would like to have at least one manga subject to work with aside from Beast. I don’t know much about the manga, because I am looking her up for costume purposes. I like her character so
I may use it.
`Anna from Van Helsing: I LOVE this movie and I like this character. I would totally attempt a cosplay of her, but I have one question; Would this be okay to wear at conventions? It is from a movie and not from a manga, but I have heard of people doing something similar if my memory is correct. I, again, very much enjoy her character and could fit the look well I think. This movie is one of my favorite flicks ever so I might do it anyway, even if no one will know who she is.
`Belle from Beauty and the Beast: This movie is love, nuff said. Disney works for conventions too, yes?
`Dark Elf/Drow: I’ve seen these around the internet for cosplays. I am familiar with this fantasy race through reading books and seeing other media where they are presented.
`Beast from Kuroshitsuji: I have had experience playing a circus character of my own through roleplay, and I have seen other characters from this anime at conventions. I could very well fit her looks too, though I am short and freckled. Though I would be wearing the outfit with a coat and scarf. I don’t want to be THAT exposed. I don’t know much else about the series, I have only read up on her for costume purposes. I like her concept a lot.

`I will be going for a Sweet/Gothic style before I do any others. I think I have a few favorites that I will be bouncing between because I can not stay in one style when it comes to fashion.

I will also be doing some werewolf and or zombie costumes if I can find an event to wear them too. I also need to find people who I can do these things with...but anyway. This was a completely random entry by yours truely, so for now, ado!

Follow Up!

Oh my, I don't feel good. I am not sure if I am physically ill or if I am just feeling worn and my mind is making me sick. Either way, I haven't been feeling good for a couple of weeks. It is making me sad, I don't like negativity in my life if I do not willingly cause it. On the bright side, I have moneys! You know what that means? SHOPPING! Well, when I get some time off of work at least. I am thinking of going off to Hot Topic, the outdoor market in my town, and my teacher's mom's shop. Asian stuff is win.
Anywho, my plates are glazed, fired and finished, and my tea bowls will soon follow. However, it will take me a few days to get those pictures, since I found out some of my stuff may be going to show.
Work and shopping tomorrow, then I will have lots lots lots to show anyone willing to listen on the weekend! Until then, I bid you ado.

EDIT:: I can not get the pictures on right away, I may try getting them on tomorrow (October 9th), but I do have to work tomorrow as well. Fun fun. ): It is too bad that I like the money so much lol.
