26/06/2013 - Paris!

On Wednesday I went on a day trip to Paris with my dad. C: 

After about 2 hours of sleep, I had to get up at about 4am to catch the Eurostar train at stupid o'clock in the morning. 

Blurry outfit shot taken in the station bathroom haha

Our original purpose of going to Paris was to visit an art exhibition my dad wanted to see, but that wasn't until the afternoon, so we had several hours free beforehand. We spent most of that time walking around and eating wonderful things. I got asked for directions by French people SO many times aha. It was strange, because no one asks me in London. 

There was hot chocolate somewhere under that cream haha

Cheesecake crêpe from Princess Crêpe, an adorable crêperie by lolita brand BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT

I bought a French copy of Attack on Titan/Shingeki no Kyojin 8D 

Yup, that's my name.

 The fountain outside the art gallery had loads of smoke coming out of it. It looked really cool!

I look like a dishevelled ghost/Silent Hill monster aha

I didn't really take pictures in the exhibition, because it was mostly moving things and things that play tricks on your eyes etc. It was very good, but wouldn't photograph well.

On the subject of Paris, I  found out today that I was accepted by a university in Paris to study there for the first semester of my year abroad (September-January)! I really love Paris, so I'm crazy excited~ (((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

Recent photos~

I've been super busy lately and haven't really had time to post properly, but here are some recent outfits and silly photos~ 

Playsuit: Cyberdog
Shoes: New Rock
Garters and bows: hand made
Horns: Kreepsville 666
Necklace: Starlightdecodream

Long tank top (worn as skirt): Romwe
Shoes: New Rock
Choker: Creepyyeha
Necklace: tutuHA
Bag: Lost Mannequin
Top: Punkyfish 
New shoes! I'd been kinda debating buying them every time I passed the shop in Camden selling them, but on the day I bought these I was actually looking for something just like these, and found that they had been reduced to £30! They're so bouncy and fun to walk in~ 

This dress/giant tank top is terrible and I love it. 

Recently I've been doing my make up like this~

Dress and necklace: Glavil by tutuHA
Garter: Creepyyeha
Shoes: New Rock
BJD tights: Lockshop
Jacket: Punk Rave
T-shirt and necklace: Super Lovers
 On this day, Wing and I dressed as boys and took purikura

Later we met up with DeMc and took battle/makankosappo photos in the park, which I'd been wanting to do for ages. It was surprisingly difficult, but a lot of fun!

26/05/2013 - MCM Expo day 3

I arrived really late on the final day of Expo, but still had a lot of fun~ 

My outfit for the day:
I did the whole "pretending to cosplay" thing, like I so often do at Expo haha

It was unexpectedly sunny, so I just sort of grabbed these sunglasses as I rushed out of the door. I actually quite like how they look with the outfit, though.

I hadn't planned to actually go inside the event that day, but DeMc had an extra pass, so I did. It was a LOT less crowded that day, so we were able to get a proper look around. I still didn't really find anything I wanted to buy, but DeMc's friend was running a sort of purikura booth, so he let us use it for free~ :D

I ended up buying a Cookie Monster cupcake, because I am very easily amused.

When we were done looking around, we got some ice cream because the weather was nice. As we were finding somewhere to sit, we ran into Richard, so went to sit outside with him and the group of people he was with. I only knew about half of them before, but everyone was lovely~ 

Eventually, some of us got hungry, so we decided to try riding a cable car to Nando's.
Surprisingly, it only cost about £3 to ride! Well worth the money, because it was a lot quicker than taking the tube, and the view was amazing.
 "Quickly guys, let's take pictures of ourselves before we die"

You can't see particularly well, but in the above photo the cable made a very steep drop. We started planning our deaths, and just as we reached the start of the drop, a cold, emotionless voice suddenly said "goodbye". It was actually like something from a horror movie ahaha. After a too-long pause (that I swear was there just to give the passengers time to freak out), it finished with "thank you for riding" or something.

We made it to the other side without dying, and then we ate delicious chicken. ( ̄∀ ̄)

I leave you with BABYMETAL's new song, because they're fabulous.
They're only 13 and 15 years old, but already so much cooler than I could ever hope to be! (´Д`)

(Also, please check out my sales post if you haven't already! I need to clear some space~)

25/05/2013 - MCM Expo day 2

Ahhh I'm so behind with posting! (゚д゚;) 

On that day I cosplayed Roromiya Karuta from Inu x Boku SS. I'd originally planned to actually make the uniform, but somehow never got around to it, so I borrowed Nao's one. <3

Awkward face shot lol

I arrived pretty early (about 11) and met Corwin, a friend from university. I didn't take many photos because we actually went inside the event on that day, and it was super crowded. 

 DeMc's band played outside~

Once we'd seen everything, Corwin and I hung out in central London until his train back to Birmingham. After that, I headed home to get ready for Japan Underground.

I hadn't planned an outfit and didn't have much time to think of one, so here's what I ended up wearing:

 I tried different eye make up~

There weren't many people there, but it was still a lot of fun~

Here, have a song:

Also, for anyone who missed it, I'm selling some stuff (mostly clothes at the moment) I don't use to clear out some space~ Take a look! C:
