Long time no see,

I've been busy making my outfits for Desucon, which was held this weekend. I had great time! There were lots of other lolitas, everyone was very pretty. Here are my outfits:

My dress for Saturday, pale pink JSK and white blouse, with mint coloured shoes and wig. I wore three petticoats! I was twinning with my Saaga, it was fun - although not actually the easiest thing... It was rainy and gray on the first day and the dark background made it hard to get a picture where one can see something else than a huge shining poof. I'll try to find a better picture when they start appearing in the Internet.

A close-up of my jewellery: a headdress and a brooch. I also wore earrings and for an upcoming meet up I made a small hairbow, another brooch and a ring (the theme is "Extreme Edges"... :D)

Saaga. I'm so happy that I can make her cute clothes!

This is what I wore today. A-kind-of replica of AP's Marionette Girl. This isn't the best dress I've made... I feel like I've wronged the original one. Maybe I'll remake this later on. Today was very bright and sunny and it was hard to keep my eyes open. The dress doesn't look like it, but it's pale blue :p Actual colour can be seen below, on Saaga.

I liked the headdress, though. I often seem to go way over the top with these, don't you think? :D

Saaga, wearing Marionette Girl. The hem is too short for her; luckily the stripe socks trick one's eye enough so it isn't very obvious.

Now Desucon is over and Animecon is in four weeks! I have to start making my dresses for that. Plans, plans...

Saaga Aurora


Remember me talking about surprises? Well, here's one of them! The Midnight Madness got me and this girl just arrived about a week ago. Her name isn't Clara as she's not as childlike as I imagined her to be. I ended up naming her Saaga Aurora. Her eyes are random because the eye group order organizer is super slow: ordering was postponed for over two months just because she was busy with school and went camping and went to holiday (placing the order would have taken 15 minutes...) The clothes aren't hers either. I made her dress to match mine for Desucon, but the pictures were bad so I show you these instead.

Wig styling


I went out for dinner and wanted to wear a wig. I decided to wear one that couldn't immediately be recognised as a wig, so I wore my Choco-Latte without the extensions. I tried two different styles to make it look as non-wiglike as possible using two basic rules: first: tie down, partially or completely, second: use hair accessories.

 First, double plaits and a flower hairband. I wore this to the restaurant. I liked it very much, it's easy and carefree.
 Second, a bun placed near my neck. (Ignore my weird-looking eyes...) I left one lock free (I had to re-curl it though, as it wasn't very pretty) and tied the rest on a bun.
 I added some flowers.
I wanted the result to be a bit ruffled and unruly.

What do you think of these? Would they pass as my real hair?


New layout


I decided to try a new layout. I'm totally lousy with both coding and photoshopping so I mostly use Paint :D Gimp is my enemy number 1 so I only use it when there's no way with Paint and even then I have to swap back to make some simple adjustments I just can't manage with Gimp (it seems that Gimp can't think simple...) This isn't very summery look, but as my choice of photoes is quite limited... And I like pale blue! All in all I'm quite happy with this look ^^

Sneak Peek


The flu finally got me (I've been expecting it since April :D) so I've been at home for the past two days. Yesterday I was just sleeping but today I felt much better and finished my first dress for Desucon.

This is the one I'll wear with my Mint wig. I'll try to get the fabrics for the other one as soon as possible.
