Update! And New Project


Update! And New Project

Well, so I got dumped two days ago.... but surprisingly I'm fine. I think maybe because I've already been hurting and crying the past three weeks so I've already accepted it's over? I don't know. The first day was tough when I woke up from his text message. Argh! 
Also, this guy who's been in love with me and has supported me for the past year and a half has been mending my heart. That and lolita has definitely helped a lot. Maybe a video idea?

Anyways, you don't care about my personal life. On to what I wanted to write about!

So, first, here's an update on my embroidery project. Don't worry I won't be posting pics on every step. Just this first design...





Second thing is a new project. It isn't new per se, since I've been thinking about it for several months now. I'm just now actually doing it!

There are two things I'm passionate about in my life. Lolita and activism. I'm going to be combining them together documentary. I'll be explaining more about why I'm making a mini documentary in the video. Let's just say that I'm excited about it and a fun challenge. I'm always looking for input.... ;)





Anyways, that's all for tonight!!

List: Lolita Fashion Idols


List: Lolita Fashion Idols

Okay, I admit, this idea was taken from Xylia Kavya. I hope she won't mind ^^
I'll just be using other people's ideas until I come up with my own blog ideas (: good plan?

So, I've put together a list of my lolita fashion idols. Not all of them dress loli all the time, and this list isn't in any particular order.



First up is Ruth (Peachie). I refer to her as the Bodyline Princess; she makes everything they make look adorable and worth it. She is super sugar-sweet and adorable and decorates everything she says with nice-ness and smilies. She is a lolita vlogger, one of the best IMO, and you can find her on Tumblr and on youtube. 






Next is Danielle (MintKismet). She doesn't wear lolita often, but in and out of it her style is really cute and sophisticated. Her now-fiance lives in Japan, and she is super kind and gave me advice about dealing with long distance relationships. I haven't talked to her much, but I hope we can be friends, she is just so sweet!






My next "Idol" is LovelyLor (Don't know her real name ><). She is full of energy and originality. She's the one who made the first "Shit Lolitas Say" videos!






Kiki is also adorable and petite, but I only like her for her casual lolita. I don't know her well so I can't say nice things about her! I'm sure she's super and nice and sweet but I just don't know a lot about her (:






Next up is Lipa (galaxymilk). She lives just an hour away from me! She's really nice and easy to talk to. We've been trying to meet eachother properly for a while now, I've only seen her IRL once at a Cafe V event but I hadn't heard of her then; I really hope we can be friends :3 She's another non-lolita, but her dreamy kei style is just as cute!! She also used to be a model, if you find her photos of the shoots, they're gorgeous! :0






Shelby is a popular lolita vlogger too. Her coordinates are always perfectly put together and creative and adorable and aargh, it was difficult to pick my favorite two photos for this entry ><. She's nice and polite to boot ^^ one of my favorites in terms of fashion-only.






Here's another fashion-only idol - Lieschenr. I know absolutely nothing about her except that she lives in Russia! She's absolutely divine and gorgeous and hand-makes her own outfits! She's just amazing - o - recently she's gone more gothic, but she's always had this historical lolita-esque grace.







Goodness gracious, I have a lot of these! I swear, only one more! She's a world-wide idol from Japan, and the epitome of lolita IMO. She's super adorable and polite and beautiful. Her coords are perfect in every way. She's a model for KERA, Putumayo, and Baby the Stars Shine Bright. You guessed it - it's Misako Aoki! The hardest to pick pics for D:







As a bonus, Here's today's coord from me~

New Art Project! - Embroidery


New Art Project!


Whilst on the plane to Florida last week, I was suddenly hit with a burst of creativity and started drawing. I came up with the idea to embroider little lolita figures. So I drew about 8 or so of these adorable chickies over my holiday. 

I started on one today finally. So far it's going okay, it's just going to be tough painting the backgrounds of the pieces of clothing/people. I have to somehow match the colors and paint within the stitching without actually painting the stitches D: 

Here's what I've got done so far in almost an hour:




I also got a new Angelic Pretty JSK + headbow in the mail today. Feeling a bit down, I got dressed up for my sewing adventure!
