- Angel Maker by inkscribble. I love dress-up games and I love her style, so I hope there will be more such things as her Angel maker in future. :)
- Pesto. An all-time favourite of mine. The only thing that is a little complicated is that I have to walk ten instead of three minutes to get to a supermarket where they sell my favourite kind. Oh, how horrible. (Not.)
- Felideus, who makes great Steampunk inspired art.
- Fresh Henna. I just re-dyed my hair, and I love the scent and the fact that my hair is even shinier than normal when newly red.
- Der Zeuge (the witness) and Endless dream by BillDerRahmen (yes, it’s a lame German pun about frames and a guy named Bill). We went to art school together during the last two years before university, and I must admit even though he’s a little bit head-in-the-clouds and often too edgy to meet my favour, this composition and short film are really good.
- Steampunk Burlesque by Gia LaFae. I was lucky enough to get introduced to her at the Bohème Sauvage, and she’s a great person besides her awesome style in fashion and dance, too!
- Wild rose shower gel. Mine is from Weleda, and just after my last match during the German championship in savate I was SO happy to have it… The feeling to change from fighter to fairy again is awesome.
- Amanda Louise Spayd and her creations which are somewhere between incredibly cute and really spooky. I just can’t decide whether I’d love to have one or be scared if something like that was in my room at night…
- My new hair chopsticks. Actually they’re only normal chopsticks, but I already bought them planning to shorten them and use them as hair sticks. I love these japanese wave patterns! It’s the first time that I used hair sticks, and I think I’ll need more of these… maybe one in shape of a unicorn horn…
- Do nothing for 2 Minutes. Awesome.
The grande finale (with some delay)!
Day 30 – A photo of yourself taken today and 3 good things that’s happened over the last 30 days
It’s not a photo of me, but she somehow really resembles me… leaving out the clothes, that is.
- My presentation for my bronze age practical course went quite well although I was very nervous and thought I wasn’t prepared at all. I feared that I couldn’t fill even fifteen minutes with what I had to tell, but I ended up talking over half an hour. My tutor was also pleased by what I said, so everything went fine.
- Training was challenging but great during the last 30 days, and I finally managed the kote-gaeshi joint lock in jiu-jitsu as well as got a compliment of a senior student in savate for my leg technique. My trainer also told me that he wants me to go to the European championship in September.
- I had wonderful moments with my friends: A great adventure at the weir with Imp and Scoundrel; the exploration of the abandoned side building of our house, again with the Scoundrel and some real treasures; breakfast with Jules while watching a girl’s movie; a fun time with Teli at the hardware and a toy’s store and not only several encounters but also a very nice evening with the Nocker, and the latter also with his friends who I found are surprisingly amiable as long as they don’t talk about politics (and, of course, with Scoundrel again).
Day 29 – A Picture of a Lolita you would love to meet for real
Miss Lumpy. And the picture belongs to her, of course.
Day 28 – A Picture of the perfect Lolita Location
It’s Diagon Alley from the Harry Potter novels and movies. I chose it because of its picturesqueness and the fact that it resembles my beloved town quite well. We’ve actually got a street I refer to als “Diagon Alley” as well as a building everyone talks of as “Hogwarts”.
In my Lolita I don’t need pretty gilded cages in form of macaron-covered french cafés (I don’t object, either, but…), I prefer something crooked, something that grew by itself.
Day 27 – One Song that fits your favorite Lolita Style
William and Davy by Kate Rusby.
It’s English folk (and every other song by Kate Rusby is great, too, by the way!) that fits my sense of a mori girl classic steampunk Lolita best, or at least I couldn’t find something better. Actually it’s one of my favourite songs at the moment, no day goes by without me listening to it. ♥
Finally something crafted again! Small, though, but no less.
1. From Hedgefairy with Love. Well, I had these pretty stickers lying around, and my huge problem with stickers is that if I put them somewhere, they’re gone! So, I made brooches out of them, and those that were too small for the needles got envelopes to stick on. I also planned to put a drop of sealing wax on one of the envelopes, but didn’t make it there in the end.
2. Roses and a Bike Button. The badge is another sticker, and the roses are the same that I used for decorating my hat for the visit at Lilibeth’s (I still don’t have the pictures, sadly, but there is a certain chance I’m going to get some of them at the weekend!).
3. Pretty Papers. My favourites, actually. I often buy scrapbooking paper for no special use, as bookbinding stock for example, but these two motifs were too beautiful to let them rest in one piece among the other papers.
Day 26 –
A Picture of Yourself that you like
Hm, maybe I should try Dandy or boystyle some day…
Day 25 – Your favorite Lolita-themed Artwork
Kira Imai’s musicians. All of her work is awesome and inspiring, but I like them best. Maybe because of the clothes and instruments – I’d love to have both!
All pictures in this post belong to Kira Imai.
Day 24 was by the way “a picture of you from a meet”, but as I don’t go to meet-ups, well… maybe some day. If university lets me.
Day 23 – A Picture of your Handwriting
It’s from my Wellington recipe, by the way.
Day 22 – A Picture of your Room
Some day I’ll show you my whole room, I promise.
