Lolita meet-up and artsy stuff

Hi theree!~~
How are you?


Last Saturday there's been a local Lolita meet-up that I attended. We met up in front of the Volkstheater and took some pictures.

We had to wait ages for everyone to arrive. Of course I was there 10 minutes too early just to be sure. Haha~ However when everyone was there we took some more pictures and asked a passenger to take a group pic of us. After that we had dinner at an Austrian restaurant.

Later there would've been a concert of the band Lolita Komplex but I wasn't able to attend that sadly. But I heard there's gonna be another one in December so it's not that bad.

Since I didn't know what to wear I've sewn a frilly shirt the night before.
Excuse my derpy face. Here's what I wore:

Tophat: customized by me
Black frilly shirt: made by me
Vampire Requiem vest: made by me; fabric from Oo Jia
Shorts: customized by me

I enjoy sewing rori-able stuff for myself! ♪(ノ´∀`*)ノ


On Friday I went to a fabric store and bought lots of unnecessary stuff. As always.. ε-(´・`) フ

A lovely hot pink rep, a tiny white/peachy stripe and an old wooden spool of bordeaux yarn.

A soft, orange-y polka dot cotton, peachy lace trims and pearl buttons.

A light black white stripe, cotton lace trim and polyester lace.

As you can tell I'm slightly obsessed with lace.. (o*・ω・)ノ


I also promised to post more of the stuff I'm working on in school. For now all you get is the finished design. (ノ´∀`*)ノ

Gonna work with apricot-coloured brocade fabric, light rose-patterned organza and soft creamy grosgrain. And of course lots of lace, frills, bows and pearls! (ノ´∀`*)ノ

Next time I'll show you the almost-finished pannier underskirt!

Hope you liked this post!

Hello theree~~ ♪(ノ´∀`*)ノ
How are you?

I'm still busy/lazy/tired all the time. I guess I have something like a harvest depression! Can't stand the weather at the moment. It gets dark too fast for my taste..

However I thought I should share some stuff I made/bought the last few weeks.
Some weeks ago we had a subject called surface processing where we dyed some fabric samples. We used bleach, coffee, tea, beetroot, curry and manganese to dye. I was really surprised how easily you can change a garments/fabric's appearance just by putting it into some kind of brew. I decided to dye a fabric I'll use for my historical Rococo dress with black tea. And I also dyed some lace today!

The past few weeks I've also been wracking my brain about what to do after I finished this school in July. Either I'll find a nice job in the fashion industry or study something. I would also like to study Japanese in university but I'm not quite sure. I've also been toying with the idea of a make-up artist training. So much to think about.. (*´ο`*)=3 However I already bought a cheap eyeshadow palette if I really decide to go that way.

I've been working on the design of the historical dress and we have to hand in the final design on Tuesday. Today I went to a nearby scrapbooking store and bought some nice stuff! I really like that store and I'm gonna get more stuff there in the future.

I also bought a cute little mirror last week!
You can spot me inside. (ノ´∀`*)ノ

Next time I'll try to take some pics of the historical dress project I'm working on in school!
It's gonna be awesome~~
