Day One Hundred and Thirty - AP, AP and Bodyline! Oh my!

Super shiny celebrities in lolita!

First up lets throw out a shiro loli Lady Gaga in Angelic Pretty
Not a fan of the gloves, she should have left them out and a little more poof wouldn't hurt but overall I do quite likey :)
Manba Gaga! Not with this co-ord though honey... although I'd love to see a proper manba co-ord, that could be pretty interesting!
Apparently it was for sale on the egl_comm_sales... I really do quite want that dress regardless that that's it's been sold and I have no idea what this JSK is called ;___;
Just look at those ruffles!!!!

MORE Angelic Pretty from Katy Perry in 2010
This is SO Katy Perry O______O
If there was a brand for her it would have to be Angelic Pretty, especially during that California Gurls period.I likey :D although I'm a little surprised that she wasn't dresses in a proper colourful dress complete with whimsical print

And now to leave the brand behind, thank you Hayley Williams for doing Bodyline
Not worn in a particular lolitary way but it is a nice JSK no? But lets forget the dress for a moment, why is she blonde? O___o
Surprise, surprise! It's sold out on the Bodyline website. Shame... I do like and can probably afford it ><

So how do you feel about celebrities wearing lolita? Do you think it popularizes lolita fashion?

Day One Hundred and Twenty Nine - Getting Crafty!

Eee I'm so happy xD I feel like I've had a productive day and I actually have work to show for it this time round!


Firstly, I finished my final piece the 'Schizophrenia Dress' 

And there it is again with fairly lights ^^ the ruffles and poofy skirt are inspired by lolita and afterwards I'll probably take it all apart and just keep the skirt (the bottom section with the green print on) but it needs more ruffles adding to the back since there wasn't enough fabric ^^" So that makes it DNA loli because of the helix print eh?


Secondly, I finished my mini me!! She's so cute ^^
I simply LOVE that strawberry print! Gonna make me a Rachel sized version of the skirt, we can be twins xD  bless my friend who kindly volunteered to hem my fabric. It takes a lot to hem 2 meters of fabric by hand! I'll be raging if my uni housemates aren't helpful...


And finally... I actually finished this on Monday night but I made a circle scarf/ snood thingy!

And here it is worn, it's SO warm and snuggly. Your neck would thank you :D

Available for commission in various colours. Drop me a line here > loliko@hellokitty.com if interested!

Day One Hundred and Twenty Five - RAGE (please excuse language)

I've had an awful day, I've been fuming! I really, really hate my tutor for having Thursdays off, this other tutor is an absolute prick! I appreciate constructive criticism but I don't need two weeks of insults. Last week my work was 'boring' and now I'm only ever going to be 'mediocre'! I'll make complaint if I have to, it's unnecessary. The asshole doesn't know who he's fucking with! I'd love to give him a good kick in the balls with my not real rocking horse shoes but that wouldn't have ended well although it would have felt fucking fantastic!!
When I pass this course and lordy lord if I pass with a merit or distinction I will make him want to be swallowed up by the floor. I hope you look forward to my pass man whore, I want you to take back those two insults and I promise to make a public affair out of it! ;D

*End of Rant*

Day One Hundred and Twenty Four - I'm still here!

I always wondered how long I could keep this blog going for but I never thought I'd have fallen this far behind this soon... From now on there will probably be less frequent posts. Rather than one everyday I'm just going to post whenever.
I think I've actually lost my camera case not. I 'misplaced' it a little while ago so I just put my camera in one of my arm warmers but I thought it was about time it got a real case so I made it one xD
I found that I eally, really like making things be it bows or little gadget carriers. I even made a little pin cushion! Might make a pair of mittens too xD
There it is in it's fleecy pink glory! Ain't it cute?

Day One Hundred and Twenty Three - Boorin

Ugh... usually I don't mind life drawing but that life room was bloody boiling and there's 17/18 of us squeezed in there stood around drawing all afternoon! That measured drawing was ridiculously boring and leg numbing ><
I actually wanted to die a little bit! Even when I got home my legs and lower back were aching T__T
 But there is still one good thing, I had post! My lens case finally arrived!!

 Hehe, remember the part in Boorin where Karin picks up the piggy compact mirror? That's what it made em think of when I took it out of it's packaging haha except mine's purple, not pink.
No piggy nose to attack me in mine though haha but isn't it just so cute and compactly snuggly?!
My lenses need transferring over still...

Day One Hundred and Twenty Two - La la la

Funny how you just know when a package is for you eh? I saw the postie out of my window and ran downstairs! I bet I know what this is ;D 
And here it was in it's glory, the Special Someone's top as promised and damn it smells goooood!!!
After I put it on I was certain that it wasn't coming off unless it had to lol
There I was prancing around the house in my bloomers, OTK socks and boyfriend's top xD i am brilliant haha!
it's SO long too! He clearly underestimated how short I am when he hold me it wouldn't be that long. it comes down way past my bum! The bloomers are only peeping out haha!


Isn't it cute eh? The little bloomers peeping out from under the top xD the sleeves are REALLY long, when my arms just hang down you can't see my hands! 
(Wow my legs look good...)


Tuesday 27th September 2011 -  La la la
No picture of me prancing around my room I'm afraid ^^"

Days One Hundred and Twenty and One Hundred and Twenty One - Home Sweet Home

Went home for the weekend for the first time since I started college! I've missed people, my room and MY bed SOOOO much!!! There were things that I didn't miss though like the constantly childish bickering between dickheads of sorts (language language) seriously children, grow up!
Bless my momma, she was tempting me to stay home a bit longer and just skip Monday! Why did she never let me do that last year and the year before eh? Clearly she misses me hehe ;D 


Miss you all! *heart*


Remember when I bought this scrummy body butter moisturiser? I keep forgetting to bring it with me ><


Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th September 2011 - Home Sweet Home

Just love, no photo haha xD

The Special Someone is so cute, even when he's had x amount of drinks ^///^

Day One Hundred and Nineteen - ZZZ

Oh my... for some reason I was really tired when I got in... I was only going to take a nap at around 7pm ish but I didn't wake up until after 10pm... ^^"

Understandably no photo ^^"

Day One Hundred and Eighteen - Where the EFF are my bamboo shoots and shrooms?!

Got a lift into college this morning in Sam's Mini, it made me think about 'the good old days' when I was learning to drive in a Mini xD I was a 'BRILLIANT' driver!
On the way home I passed the take away nearby. Walking past I realised it had been a while since I'd had a take away. I wanted some spring rolls the last time I went past but I thought they were expensive but they're cheaper than ours so I got some. Reading the menu as I waited I realised I was only getting two! I felt quite overcharged until they came out and appeared to be absolutely HUGE! It's like getting four little one. Complaint instantly forgotten. All was well until I realised I couldn't actually eat it... it was too big to fit in my mouth so I had to dissect it first. Spring roll #1 dissected and demolished but there was no sign of ANY bamboo shoots OR shrooms! *RAGE!*


Thursday 22nd September 2011 - Where the EFF are my bamboo shoots and shrooms?!

I know I like beansprouts but this is ridiculous!

Day One Hundred and Seventeen - LEMON!

Yeah, I've been really out of date and haven't been updating properly so I don't even know!
Was talked at about a Japanese Artist who did an animation with charcoal and I thought of one who used iron filings. Then I remembered the iron filing incident in year eight which led to eye operation #3 (I think it's 3... if not, 'x'). Remember when you got me in the eye with a golf ball just as I was recovering Lizzy? I do!! xD


Ooo! I had a lemon muffin though! It was an AWESOME lemon muffin indeed! I'd be lying if I said I wasn't being fed ;D 


Wednesday 21st September 2011 - LEMON!

No! Not that type of lemon! That's naughty ;D

Day One Hundred and Sixteen - Well that was a good sleep!

Yeah, told you it'd be a good sleep haha xD
Drew all the key frames for my animation too, it wasn't that smooth though, it could do with one or two filler frames for each life but my light box (window) isn't functioning at the moment, it'll have to wait until tomorrow ^^" I might start the colouring now though so then it looks like I've done more than doodle...
The poor soul goes through so many traumatic lives, I'm sorry ^^"
Today has been a good day for sleep, art, cooking and love it seems! I'm happy :)
I had an interesting conversation regarding art today. The Special Someone said he'd get me the Mona Lisa but I wouldn't have the Mona Lisa in my house, it'd freak me out but it is very skillful and admirable. I asked for Magritte's 'this is not a pipe' instead, I like that. It's just nice and light hearted. I wouldn't have it on display on my wall but I would like it! I'd like something by Vladimir Kush though, I like his work, it's pretty ^^




'This is not a pipe' - Rene Magritte
Arrival of the Flower Ship
Arrival of the Flower Ship - Vladimir Kush


Flown With the Wind
Flown With the Wind - Vladimir Kush 

(Just to throw out a few that I like)

Been working with my butterfly light's on and love songs playing haha, the atmosphere in my room is so romantic right now, can't stop playing Until You Can't Find Me by Raymond Lam, Where Did You Go by GEM and I Can't Not Love You by Gillian Chung and Kenny Kwan. I've found a real love for Gillian's voice it seems ^^

Tuesday 20th September 2011 - Well that was a good sleep!
Here it is! Today's dish of the day is stir fried tofu fish balls with cucumber, shroom and red pepper!

Day One Hundred and Fifteen - 非君不嫁

If Britton knew how many times I've changed ideas and re-thumbnailed she would shoot me!
I've abandoned the idea of obsession. The animation as I've said was finished in like five minutes so I thought maybe a mix media piece expressing what's going on in our dear stalker's head (sorry James xD) but apparently it was a bit too graphicy. You know you get paranoid sometimes when you're on public transport etc and you think people are talking about you and sniggering at you? Why not try a sound installation eh? Challenge accepted! In my head I already scrapped that idea, I want to go back to reincarnation and soul transgression, I had so much more fun with that so I'm gonna scrap obsession and go back to that and make another animation and this time it won't take five minutes! 
it's actually a good sign that I swapped ideas, my bus was deathly silent apart from Rihanna being played on some randomer's phone... challenge failed lol.
Storyboard done. Might do a final version in my sketchbook if there's time (c'mon, it takes up space!) Tomorrow's job is to draw ALL (or at least 80%) of the frames by hand. Miyazaki-sama would be so proud haha!
I've decided that I really like 非君不嫁 by Gillian Chung. it's a poetic way of saying you won't 
marry him unless he's the one or more literally, i it's not him I won't marry. I agree! 非君不嫁!



Monday 19th September 2011 - 非君不嫁
D'aww, look at Jack's cute, squishy, glowy soul ^^

Day One Hundred and Fourteen - You jump, I jump

Had a nice sleep in until like 1pm ^^"
I kept waking up last night and kept checking my phone. I finally had a text at about 11am but it was from o2... I also received a 'poke' on facebook, I got excited for a little bit but then it turned into disappointment, it wasn't that Special Someone I've been having a poke war with for all this time...
My mind isn't functioning properly, I can't even think of some work I can invent for myself to do for tomorrow...


Sunday 18th September 2011 - You jump, I jump.
In Men Without Shadows Fong Fong said 'I jump, you jump.'  If you jumped off a building I'd follow you.

If this is what it feels like to miss someone I never want to be missed.



Day One Hundred and Thirteen - Oh dear...

Yeah... Did my photos today which went swimmingly except I changed the story a little because it looked better in my head than it did in real life but I wasn't mean to finish the animation too...
What a load of crap in a bucket ><


Saturday 17th September 2011 - Oh dear...

GEO Lenses - Review!

Ok, so you all know that I got some circle lenses and that they were hard to get in and made me feel like a doll but lets do a proper review ^^"


So what did I actually buy? These are GEO's one tone GEO Brown BC-103 [click here]
They got here in a few days with free shipping, free lens case and a cake phone charm ^^
At first they are quite hard to put in if you've never used contacts before but if you put them in right you should adjust fairly quickly. The first time I put mine n my right eye was quite uncomfortable, turns out I probably put it in the wrong way round ^^" It comes with a handy instruction leaflet which tells you how you can tell! The second time round was ok though and fairly easy. 
Shall we see then?


Before

After

AND with make-up xD 
I rarely wear make up but you know, just for fun ^^

And then with only one lens in to show the difference. (You can see both [here]) You can't see the colour of the lens much because my eyes are quite dark but it does make them look a lot rounder and more doll like!

A VERY good buy!

day One Hundred and Twelve - Oh My Squishy Soul

Oh Friday, you are nice to me! Started at 10am and finished at 4pm today, it made me VERY happy!
Got back, fed myself (eggy rice with fishballs and char siu) and painted a soul on Photoshop


Doesn't it look glowy and squishy? I like it xD

The I got round to painting my soul, can't keep it as line art, line art can never be glowy or squishy but before that I witnessed Jack making a cake and man it was a good cake! I did some tea sampling too, I do rather like earl grey now ^^
Made a start on watching Black Butler too, Sebastian is pretty nice to look at and is simply one hell of a butler! But that scene is a yaoi scene complete with lemons! (He was just having his corset tightened...)
Turns out I shouldn't talk, everything comes out wrong!!

[helping my friend connect his bracelet with the bar from a piercing...]
'Is it in yet?'
'Only you could tell'
*dies*
It'd be terrible if someone else heard it...

Day One Hundred and Eleven - Post Fail

Ugh... I experienced the longest hour of my life... why must we be in until 5pm?!
The life drawing was good though, I wasn't half as uncomfortable as I thought I'd be and no, the model wasn't a guy who is a complete bish although I'd be lying if I said I didn't wish it was ;D
Anyway, ran to the post office when I got back and it closed on me... I was not amused ¬¬"

Day One Hundred and Ten - No Moon?

'Do me a doodle of what you think your soul looks like'
yes, I'm a weird child, I want people to draw their souls (actually, I've just been watching too much Soul Eater as of late but hey!) It was quite entertaining actually xD
Finally got round to eating that moon cake tonight but when I got to the third piece I realised that there was no moon in my cake... my soul has been destroyed...




Wednesday 14th September 2011 - No Moon?
If I have a soul (I'd like to think I do) I think it'd look a lot like this xD
