Sakuracon 2015 Haul!

Hello gorgeous!

I promised you I'd talk a bit about what I brought home from Sakuracon, but we'll try to keep it pretty short and sweet. <3 nbsp="" p="">
In particular, I wanted to gush a bit about my Arda Wigs haul, because I'd been holding out for con in order to see things in person and stock up without paying shipping.

They're officially my favorite wig producer, so I look forward to picking up new pieces every year. I'll go more into my reasoning in a sec.

So first, THE PRETTIES:




Detailed from left to right:

Thingy #1: Long bangs for a side-swept look in color Lavender



I'm undecided on whether I'll trim blunt bangs into these and keep long side bangs so I can have a clip-in hime cut, or if I love the side swept enough to use them like that. We'll see. 
But the reasons I love Arda so much, aside from the super versatile and cheap little pieces they sell (like these bangs, which were $12!), is that the fibers are super high quality, easy to brush, and really high temperature heat resistant. Their wigs are really MADE to be restyled!
They even sew most of their full wigs to hide the wefts if you choose to cut in layering or put them in an updo! I was blown away by how easy it was to style a really natural and beautiful updo with my first strawberry red Ferrari. 

Thingy #2: Short bangs in colors Baby Pink and Ice Violet


These come with pre-cut blunt slightly side-swept bangs and hime tips. I like them quite a bit. I think with the longer bangs I'd curl the hime tips to go well with my curly hair. 


Thingy #3 Victoria Wig in color Dusty Rose

This is such an incredible wig. A full, well-curled hime bump, capable of brushing out and heat-styling, for $35. 


It's actually a bit thin, which made it very comfortable, but I wouldn't try to restyle it. 
I might brush it out when the curls start becoming less defined. 
I think it would be really pretty with the curls fluffed up. 


Next up, my other purchases! I was pretty good, aside from the big wig order. 
I purchased some Tsubasa style lace bunny ears for $15,

(Inspo)

A simple hime bag for $35,
(I realized I didn't have a brown purse! So I was on the hunt for one)


And then a series of gifts! <3 p="">
(I'm so spoiled, hahaha)
The hat brooch, bunny ears brooch, matching ribbon bracelets, and printed stockings (seen worn in my Lolita Fashion show outfit), are all from Belladonna.
The eos lip balm and bird shaped candle were hostess gifts from one of the models, thanking me for hosting the show! So sweet! <3 nbsp="" p="">

I also decided to pop by artists alley after one of my friends working art room told me I could find stickers of the Crystal Gems.
I just discovered Steven Universe, and have been OBSESSED.
That show is life. <3 nbsp="" p="">
So I needed all of my moms in sticker form to put on random stuff. 
(The girl at the booth even gave me some angry space doritos! I bought so many stickers she gave me freebies, hahaha)
I got big sizes of my favorites to decorate something major. 
And I found an artist selling Adventure time stickers! 
As well as a darling Rarity keychain, and a mini-print of the Crystal Moms. <3 p="">

I am made of love!

Sakuraco 2015 Outfits!

Hello pretty bunnies!

Sakuracon this year kinda flew by!

I ended up getting roped into coordinating the Lolita fashion show, since my friend Belle Mouse usually takes care of things, and was out of town this year and couldn't pick it up.

That was crazy and scary and chaotic, but I think things went pretty well!

I'm just glad they happened at all.

I was so sure I'd f*ck it up somehow.

Aside from that, I ended up working con for the first time ever as well. So I was working shifts in the Art Room from Thursday to Sunday and doing other con stuff around it. But hey, I got into con for free! (And spent all that money on stuff in the dealer's hall, heheheh)

On top of all that, my boyfriend was moving that weekend! He just got a new place with his other partner, moving from one end of Downtown Seattle to the other, and consolidating their two places into one. So every day after con, I went over to his place and tried to help them scramble to get things packed up and moved. I think I spread myself a little too thin.

But! All things said and done, I survived con, came home with hella swag, and did it all looking goddamned fabulous. So on to the important parts: what I was wearing!

I'm always excited when the weather cools down.
I can't wear black when it's hot!
Or wigs  either. ^^;

Ball-jointed Dolls: From Sueding to Face-Ups



I love my Pullip so much, I'd fill my room with dolls if I could afford it!

Honestly, with all the money and time I spend on clothes, I think I'll be plenty satisfied with one doll to twin with, and I can make her mini versions of some of my favorite designs. 

But I've heard they can get quite addictive, and i know they are a hobby in themselves. XD
I might get hooked!

On that note: 
This time, we have a fantastic guest post from Miss Maria Rainier. She's actually a resident blogger and researcher of an online degree info site , but put together this article for us concerning BJDs and how to customize them. I'm really excited to try some of this out myself!





Ball-Jointed Dolls: From Sueding to Face Ups

Ball-jointed dolls are beloved for their endless possibilities for customizing. From their eyes to their wigs to their makeup to their outfits, the options for customization mean that even the same doll can take on thousands of different forms. While this array of possibilities can be exhilarating for some, it can be quite intimidating for others. Fortunately, there are many tutorials available to help you better understand how to manipulate the array of strings and moving parts and to learn the tricks of customizing for yourself. 

Sueding

Sometimes, those joints can become loose and floppy, meaning that your doll won't pose or stand as it can. An easy fix is to "suede" the joints of your doll to hold the poses in place for dioramas and photos, and to help convey your doll's sense of attitude. There are a couple of ways that you can suede your doll's joints. The first is "hot glue sueding," which uses the friction of a low-temp hot glue to make the joints more firm. 

Hot Glue Sueding Tutorial from Comic Book Artist Boi:




The second method is to place actual pieces of suede or thin leather into the doll's sockets. 

Tutorial from BJD Collectasy:



Wiring

Another easy way to help make your doll more poseable is to wire the joints and the body. This will help it to hold standing poses or to maintain any other poses you like. The method is much easier than sueding your doll, though if your doll suffers from loose joints, you may have to suede it or restring it in order for the wiring to be effective.

The Denver Doll Emporium has many tips on the care of your BJD, including a short section on wiring your doll: Re-Stringing

Re-stringing your doll can be one of the more intimidating mods you can make. You have to take apart your doll and are left with a pile of parts and joints, which may not be readily recognizable when you have to put everything back together again. The correct pathways for the strings can also be a bit confusing, depending on the type of doll you have, as some dolls have hidden cavities in their torsos. This video tutorial can help:



If you are uncertain about how the stringing method relates to your specific model of doll, be sure to search for instructions specific to that model.

Wig Making

One of the most fun aspects of customizing can be making your own wigs. All ball-jointed dolls are bald until you give them hair, and choosing the style and color of your doll's wig will determine much about his or her personality. Is he sweet or punky? Is she a Lolita or a vamp? Your wig can help make these determinations. Though there are many different varieties of wigs on the market, you may have something more specific in mind, or you may have a special character that you want to create. Rather than trying to modify an existing wig, you can make your own from scratch.

There are many materials from which you can make your wig, including fur, mohair, yarn, and synthetic hair, and many materials from which you can make your cap, including cloth, netting, and latex. One of the easiest ways to make your wig is to use cloth and fur hair. Here is an easy-to-follow tutorial:




Face UpsFinally, repainting your doll's face, or creating a custom "face up," can help you create the doll of your dreams with the exact features and personality that you choose. While there are many doll artists who offer custom face ups for a fee, and all companies that sell ball-jointed dolls offer a face up as an optional service (again, for a fee), it is very easy to learn how to do your own face up. Even if you have no artistic talent or have never painted in your life, there are a variety of tools that can make the process easier for you, and practice always makes perfect. Here are a couple of tutorials to get you started:

OOTD: Pink! Pink! Pink!

Hello unicorns!

I have so many old outfits to share. I'm still catching up! ^^;

I felt like wearing fairy kei for once.
I didn't wear so much jewelry this time.
I guess I decided to combine Sweet Lolita style with my romper from Bodyline.



Wig, romper: Bodyline
Blouse: Anna House
Everything else offbrand

I also have an installment of the Lolita 100 to share today.
I haven't done one of these for a while. But I intend to finish all of them someday!

(41) レースはどんな種類が好きですか?(What types of lace do you like?)
The embroidered cotton venice and netting laces! What's better than having ice cream, music notes, and other matching motifs right on your lace! :D I like crochet too, because I can make it myself, and it's great for dyeing.

(42) お人形さんを所有していますか? 持っている方はその子に対する思いを熱くどうぞ!(Do you own a doll? Does it give you fun, childish feelings?)
Yes! I'm becoming a bit of a collector, it seems...
I've got an old porcelain doll from my childhood that I never played with. XD I'm so glad, because now she's in perfect condition!
I also have a poppet someone made me in a craft swap, and if you don't know what they are, check out www.craftster.org, and search Poppet, they're so cute! I plan to make myself another poppet that looks like me, to twin with. :3
I have a Romantic Alice Pullip that I love to bits. Her costume is so perfect, and her makeup is so soft and feminine!
I also collect Novi Star dolls, and I have the two different versions of Una Verse so far. 

(43) ロリィタ時の鞄の中身は?(What is in your lolita bag?)
Candy! :D 
No really, I've got my cell phone, date book, DS or PSP, a notebook and pen for ideas, some makeup, my wallet, portable umbrella, mini emergency kit with things like stain remover and painkillers and band-aids, phone charger, sometimes my knitting, and CANDY!!

(44) 好きな花は何ですか?(What is your favourite flower?)
I love bleeding hearts, foxgloves, and roses! Roses are so utilitarian, there's lots of ways to make them tasty. :D I've had my eye on a recipe for rose syrup for some time now, and I've been known to make candied rose petals, rose jam, and buy rose candies whenever I see them.


(45) 今、一番のお気に入りアクセサリーはどんなもの?(Right now, what is your favourite accessory?)
That's so difficult! But either my flower crowns, or my pink plastic spike bracelets. The spike bracelets are just such a wonderful juxtaposition: candy coloring a punk staple makes them unexpected. 


(46) お気に入り・お勧めの化粧品を教えて下さい。(Please reccommend us some cosmetics.)
Rimmel's Lash Accelerator! I tried it because of a review on another blog that said it really works. It claims to help your lashes grow visibly longer and thicker in 30 days, and I really see the difference! My lashes look so long, like falsies, when I put on this mascara! And it's a really nice quality too, it really doesn't ever clump or flake. However, I don't recommend the volume version, only the lengthening type. For some reason the brush on the volume one just doesn't work well. Also, primer! Use it! Your photos, and just your face, really, will look so much smoother and more doll-like if you use primer under your regular makeup. I really like Too Faced's Primed and Poreless, but I recently discovered Etude House's Baby Choux Color Base in the mint green, and it does miracles for my redness. Lastly, try out different unique colors of blush! I've become addicted. Bright reds, dusty rose, lavender, orange, peach, they're all wonderful, and completely change your look!


(47) パッチリお目目はお人形さんの証! ということでつけまつ毛は使っていますか?(With Eye-tape your eyes look like a Doll's! What eyelashes will you wear?)
I love falsies! Right now, I use mostly cheap daiso lashes everyday, but I have lashes I brought back from Japan for special occasions. Diamond Eye, PlayCute, Eyemazing, and Dolly Wink are all spectacular quality.   

(48) アイメイクの拘りをどうぞ。(Your eyemakeup for these eyelashes?)
I really like color, so I've often been doing just one color over my whole lid, then contouring the eye with eyeliner and black or dark brown shadow. Sometimes I do tare-me with my liner, and other times I flick it up into a punk rock wing. 

(49) 口紅は赤? 青? 黒? ピンク?(Red Lipstick? Blue? Black? Pink?)
ALL THE COLORS. I bought most of Nyx's macaron lippie collection for the colors, and I'm so in love with my two green shades from Atomic Cosmetics. I really want every color imaginable! But daily, I tend toward a pink or red stain, something delicate and subtle. 


(50) マニキュアは何色を使うことが多いですか? (Or which nail polish do you choose normally?)
Cute pastels or bright colors! I vary my nails as much as I can, usually with awesome nail art.   

48 Flabbergasting Steampunk Tutorials


Steampunk Lolita collage from Polyvore

Hello Unicorns!

September is here, and fall will soon be upon us! What better time to stock up on leathers, furs, and browns that will complete your Steampunk wardrobe?

I thought now was the perfect time to round up some tutorials and thrifting guides for new Steampunks. It has been quite in vogue recently, but I've been donning my goggles and bustles since 2008. There's a wonderfully vibrant Steampunk community here in Seattle, and I've never wanted to miss out by being underdressed!

So before we start, I have some tips for thrifting and reusing other pieces in Steampunk outfits. It's not nearly as hard as you'd think, and many of us dress ourselves on a shoe-string budget!

Try these on for size

  • The most popular motifs in Steampunk outfits are gears and clocks, and they aren't terribly expensive or hard to find! Try wearing a pocket watch with a chain tucked into your pocket, or a watch locket, for some old world romance. Nice watches in earth tones, especially when worn all at once, give the impression of a well-informed time traveler!
  • Corsets! Lolita likes to dance with corsets when they want a more dramatic look, but they are always acceptable in a steampunk coordinate. If you have a corset, start trying it on over all your favorite dresses and blouses; you might be surprised at what really works!
  • Classic Lolita and steampunk have a lot of elements in common, with Victorian inspirations and darker, more subtle color palettes. Steal some of your Lolita pieces and try matching them up with normal clothes, or go thrifting for new pieces that can pair with them. Try some pieces in jewel tones, olive greens, tans, browns, and purples. Coordinate like a Victorian lady gearing up for a day of adventure!
  • Steampunk accessories are often quirky and fun. Who says you can't carry a raygun on your garter and still be ladylike? Also, many accessories are notoriously easy to make, so check the tutorials below for inspiration.
  • Find that one accessory you've never been able to coordinate, and try to make it work with a more colorful, hodgepodged coordinate. We tend to try to limit our color palettes in Lolita so everything matches, but often a colorful, mis-matched outfit is perfect for Steampunk.
  • Bustles are fun! If you don't have anything bustled, you can make it so. Take a needle and a thick, string-like thread that won't risk breaking on you. Just do a wide, basting type stitch  up the length of your skirt, from bottom to top. When you're done, tug the string and gather it to your desired height. Whenever you get sick of it, just snip the string and take it back out! 
  • Leather gloves are a highly underrated accessory, and are often easy to find in thrift stores. So are goggles. Keep your eyes open, and you'll eventually happen across beautiful vintage pieces that may well have been from the early 1900s. 
Now on to some tutorials!

To be honest, there were too many good ones for me to just list them here! So I decided to make a Pinterest board instead! :)
