Some sunday sewing and new Boots!!


Today I had to do some sewing, and I finished a offwhite classic Lolita blouse. I also started on a classic Lolita skirt, I will post pictures off it when it is finished.
This is the blouse, it is a pretty simple design, not to much lace and ruffles.
(please ignore the petticoat, it's ugly but very usefull when I sew skirts)

And a close up of some details.

For some reason I have been really cold the past few days, even though it is summer in my country. It isn't very warm outside, but it's ridiculous that I am this cold. I sleep with extra blankets and big fat fuzzy wintersocks :S
Anyway, this is what I wore today. A warm knit top, skirt, thighs and another pair of fuzzy warm winter socks ( I love this type of socks XD)
Hmm I wonder why the color of my sweater changed so much in the picture, it is pretty much the same color as my skirt IRL :\

I got some awesome boots for this winter!! They are perfect for a winter Lolita co├Ârdinate, but also to just wear with a pair of skinny jeans or a legging.
So these are me new babies, adorable aren't they *^___^*

Worn with my skirt

Yes, I am going to have so much fun with these boots, I can't wait for a very cold winter ^^

Bye for now

My Room


I made a video of my room, Some people I know were curious about what my room looked like, so here it is ^^ Enjoy

There are two huge goldfishes in my fish tank, but they were camera shy and were hiding behind the rock :\ .
The music, yeah I listen to 80's and 90's music most of the time when I am in my room, and I have no idea how to get the music out of the video XD

I love the park


A few months ago, I went to a park together with a friend, to take some pictures and have a little picknick. We ended up not making a lot of pictures at all. We did make a tiny photostory though:

"Hmm what to chose? The road into a dark forest, or the grass and flowers in the sun.."

"The road is easier to walk on, but the flowers are prettier. Since I love pretty things, I choose the grass, even though it is hard to move through high grass.."

"Perfect, exactly where I want to be, outside, surrounded by nature.."Photobucket

Summer Darkness and other things


This weekend there was another event in my country, this time in Utrecht. Summer Darkness. It started on Friday and ended on Sunday. I only went there on Sunday to participate in the Lolita fashion show. I could not stay longer either because I was invited to my friends birthday party.
The show was fun, and everybody looked gorgeous! There were so many people watching the show, it was almost scary, but not as scary as an unexpected show I did a few years ago on a very busy festival. That was fun to, but completely unplanned and unprepared. And we had only two models, me and my best friend ^^. So the show this Sunday was a lot easier then that.
Here are some pics of me:
First a mirror shot early in the morning before I left

And one on the catwalk, taken by Lady Ludivine
You can see my hair in this shot. I always said that I wouldn't buy a wig. But I decided a while ago to buy a half wig after all, because I really like curls, but my own hair is impossible to curl, every time I try it, it dies within an hour. This half wig is great, the quality is awesome, and it saves sooo much time O.o .

Birthdays and crafts

As I already said, I had to go to a birthday party after the fashion show. The gift I bought for her was packed in a very boring white box. So I wanted it to look nicer. Then I remembered that I still had a book on ribbon work and a lot of ribbons lying around. I never tried it before, so I gave it a shot.
This is the result after I put it on the gift.

I kinda liked it, for a first try XD

On saturday I had another birthday, and I made some other flowers that I couldn't use on the first gift, so I used them on the gift for my other friend.
This is the result with the left over flowers

It is a lot of fun to do, and I am going to practice it some more when I have more extra time to spare.

Allright, lunchtime now, and then I have to go to my work.
So, Bye for now

Catsle Fest 2010


Sunday August 8,
I went to Castle Fest today. Castle Fest is a Dutch annual fantasy event in the gardens of Castle de Keukenhof. In my opinion, this is one of the best outdoor fantasy festivals in my country. I try to attend it every year, however, the past few years I went there to help out my best friend selling her goods in her booth, but she didn't get a booth this year, so we went there as real visitors. That was a pretty strange but wonderfull experience.
I was there together with my best friend Deborah and with Pim, another friend of us. And when we were at the festival we met this really nice guy who was dressed as a vampire. Pim knew him, and he was there alone, so we asked him to join us for the day, and he did. His name was Cela.

This was our group, except for the girl in the middle, she wanted to be in a picture with us ^^ So from left to right: Deborah, Cela, middle girl, Pim and me.

This is another groupshot taken by Deborah.

Look at the back of Deborah's awesome pirate dress ^^, she looked great today

OH NOES, Cela is trying to suck my blood XD

I spotted the cutest Lolita there:
This little girl was about eleven years old, and already such a fantastic sweet Lolita. I just had to take a picture of her. She was so adorable!!

And last but not least, me together with Deborah promoting Chocolate Milk. We were both very happy with our cans of chocolate XD
(yeah that is what we were screaming XD)

We made it to the Fit's finals!!!!


Yaay, our Fit's dance video made it to the next round. Now we had to make a new video. We did that yesterday in the Mfashion shop. Well, we planned to do it inside the shop, but it was a little to small for all of us, so we took everything outside, and made the video there.
It is already up online, and once again, we need the most views to win. So please watch it ^^ It is very funny!

It was a lot of fun to do again, we made so many bloopers XD. I also really screwed up again, I am not a very talented dancer :P
I hope we win this contest!! But it is already great that we made it to the second round.
All right, It's diner time now.

My grandfathers party


Last night I celebrated my grandfathers 90th birthday. We had a big family party. There were lots of relatives, and I didn't really know any of them XD. Most of them were already rather old to. It was fun though. Most of them seemed to know who I was, they have seen me when I was little, and my grandmother told them about my sewing hobby.The old ladies were very interrested in that ^^.
We had a nice diner in a beautifull restaurant. It was in the middle of a park right next to a big lake. The room where we were sitting had a vieuw on the lake, which was very nice.
One of the gentlemen who were attending told us a story about how he met my grandfather, he wasn't a relative, but grandfather lived and worked with his family during the world war 2 when the Germans came to our country. My grandfather had to hide from the Germans, and this gentlemen's family helped him out. It was a very interresting story, even my mother (it was her fathers birthday) never heard that story in so many details before.

For this party I wanted to wear Lolita, but I didn't want to freak anyone out there, so I decided to go for a more toned down Lolita inspired look.
Here is a picture of my outfit (sorry for anther mirror shot, I was running a little late)
Skirt: Baby the Stars Shine Bright
Blouse: H&M
Shoes: Local shoe store called Shoe outlet (they sell cute but cheap shoes XD)
I did my hair up, but it is not very visible in the pictures. I hope the party photographer (my niece :P) made a few pictures of me with the hair more visible. (I was actually quite proud of it XD)

The party was great, it was fun seeing and meeting all these people.
