Classic Lolita photoshoot


On Monday I met up with GJB Performance Photograpy for a shoot.


We themed this shoot around some of my handmade clothing.

I'm pretty pleased with the results, and very much like the black and white ones :)

Dior - Secret Garden


I found these by accident earlier on today when I was browsing youtube on a background window, sometimes I just let the adverts run. 
I got an advert that was Secret Garden 2 before whatever I was planning to watch, I had another window open and was all like "is that Depeche Mode?" and sure enough when I flipped back to the youtube tab, it was indeed Depeche Mode.
Depeche Mode and the Palace of Versailles? 
Yes please!


They're very beautiful art films in my opinion so I thought I'd share :)

Lolita 52 Challenge - Week 22 - How I accessorize

I seem to have developed a "stuff on my head" fixation lately.

I suppose accessorising is probably my downfall, I'm never really sure what to put where 0.o
Still I am improving so I guess I'll get there eventually.

Quilliam Brother's Tea House

I went out for a late night tea drinking session with friends last night! We found a tea house in Newcastle that is open until 1am!
I had Christmas tea in Junes, 'twas delicious!

In this week's episode of Vegetable Garden adventures!

So for the past few days dead pigeon chicks have been turning up, my grandma just assumed that Lily killed them, then this morning this (alive) bird showed up in the garden.
We think it's a female Grey Cuckoo and thus Lily is innocent!

Scifair!


Helped out on the Forever in Black stall at Scifair today, got exterminated by a Dalek and shot in the back by an Imperial officer!


If you're going troll my blog/friends/etc you should probably know I now have an Empire at my command.



Tea flavoured energy drink BEST INVENTION EVER!



Our stall!



No sir, unfortunately we don't take Galactic Credits here.

Preview from yesterday's shoot


The start of a very busy week of photoshoots!
Coming up I have two shoots for Forever in Black, a classic black dress shoot and possibly a little bit more Lolita if I can find the time :)

Lolita 52 Challenge - Week 21 - Plan for a trip! A week's worth of Lolita outfits I can fit in a small suitcase


Now this is a fun challenge!
I decided to make seven co-ords out of just a few pieces that can be used a few times in different combinations.


If I'm packing light I only take my smaller petti as the large one takes up way too much space!


One way of packing light is to go for more casual Lolita inspired looks.


That's not to say that you can't have a day or two in your finery.

I looked possessed in this, forgive me 0.o

But depending on your location it might not be practical to be all frills all the time!



And depending on where it is you're going on your trip it might not be practical to wear OTT sweet.


If I'm flying I just wear something ultra casual, no petti and no accessories because it's not practical to keep taking things off to go through security.

Baby The Stars Shine Bright Design Team


This morning I watched a pretty cool documentary about Japanese fashion, that included a pretty big piece on Lolita. In that was a bit about the brand Baby The Stars Shine Bright, and their design and make process. It was super interesting and you can watch it here

I decided to give her a bit of a vampire twist though :)

She did after all want to eat Snow White's heart, so I figured it made sense.

Nescafe Azera review

My mug on the left featuring Azera with soya milk and Kev's on the right with regular milk

I am a tea drinker, until a few years back when Starbucks screwed up my order and accidently gave me a coffee instead of my chai latte and I quite liked it. I tried a few instants and realised that nope... I'm a coffee snob, just can't do instant... Yuck!
So when I was sent a sample from BzzAgent I was very interested in Azera's claims to be as good as barista coffee, I was pretty skeptical but actually... It's pretty good stuff!
I will certainly be buying the regular kind again as I was incredibly impressed by it.
I do have a slight complaint about the Cappuccino kind, in order to mix it properly you need a GIANT mug and it doesn't explain this on the packaging, in a regular sized mug it just turns into a weird sludge.
Over all I'm pretty happy though and I think I will be buying it again!

Latest WIP

A tartan blouse/bolero for the autumn :)

Monthly Homework Assignment - Polka Dots!



It's been quite some time since I've done one of these... Time to get back into the swing of things!
Time for a little nail art for this one I think!

Punk on the runway


Thought I'd share this interview I found with Lisa Armstrong on Punk and it's influences on fashion.
Looks like Punk will be very in this summer, I suspect it will continue into the autumn. 

Lolita 52 Challenge - Week 20 - How satisfied I am with my current wardrobe

Part of my wardrobe... Well it's a rail now because my wardrobe collapsed 0.o

I don't think I will ever be totally satisfied with my wardrobe, no matter how big it gets. Currently I'm quite happy with it, I think it needs more blouses though :)
