I Wanna Be On Top ~

I was browsing through my DeviantART messages one day and came across a journal post by zemotion - Chinese photographer Zhang Jingna where there was a link to the episode of Asia's Next Top Model where she was the photographer for one of the challenges

And after that I fell in love and started watching it from the beginning. The funny thing is that I used to watch America's Next Top Model with my cousin years ago and I never liked it. I used to get super bored but right now I am hooked! 
Watching this now really makes me wish I was doing photography of some sort and made me realise how much I miss taking nice photos.
(I've not done a shoot of any sorts since my Alice in Wonderland shoot back in A Level)

Photos from my shoot 'Alice, Alice'

Now back to Asia's Next Top Model, everyone always has a favourite wen it comes to shows like this so who do I want to win?
Well I really like Kate and Stephanie - they are both so adorable!


But as annoying and sometimes unlikable as she can be, I LOVE Helena!

I can sense my flatmate throwing things at me ^^'

What can I say? She  just takes such good photographs! She knows what she's doing (most of the time anyway) and has a lot of variety to work with!

And she has such nice eyes!! Photo from her Facebook portfolio.

January. A New Year, A New You?

Ah it's been so long!
Firstly I'd like to wish everyone a happy new year! I hope you all had a good Christmas too!

I'm sorry to have not posted in so long - I've been so busy with uni (and am sad to say that I feel that all the work I do isn't appreciated at all. ;___;)
I'm not really one for making new years resolutions but this year I do aspire to be more motivated and to be able to do more of the things I enjoy like drawing for myself and sewing. I also bought Twinkie Chan's book before Christmas so I would like to get round to making one of those crochet babies! ^^

So how much I managed to achieve so far? 
Well I was commissioned to make a skirt so I got a bit of practice making a half elasticated skirt. O added interfacing thins time to give the front a better shape.

And in terms of drawing I started a collection of Lolita chibis and finished my sweet lolita

I've also seen a lot of photos lately of people's lolita wardrobes so maybe mine will be coming up next! (If you're interested of course)
