I’m wanting to do a Q&A video with my boyfriend a few days before Halloween. I need some questions. I/he/we will answer anything asked. It can be lolita, normal, etc ^_^ Just put them in the ask.

Girlfriend is making a Q&A video for the lolz. Hit us up on ask for any questions about her, myself, or about us. Anon asks are acceptable too.

Lolita, normal, basically anything and everything is up for grabs XD

One more bump before the week ends. Ask questions and we’ll answer them (we won’t say the usernames of the people asking us if you prefer).

In other news, the Nekocon schedule is up. Not sure how I’m gonna get through this con since the panels don’t seem to pique my interest, but booze usually makes up for it. Not sure what I’m going to do, but going to hit up the lolita panels as usual, along with the fashion show, and a Sunday Lolita Picnic?!? I’m probably going to risk it and and bring some of the bigger ouji coats…

The weather is getting nice and cold outside so I find myself walking more to places such as the supermarket or the gym, so I think I’ll put up some pictures of fall/winter wear after Ash cuts my hair.

The brother is getting some doubts in coming back to the states. If he does indeed stay in Korea, I’m not going to Holiday Matsuri for December’s convention

My first tea party ^_^ Just some pictures & footage.

AWA BSSB Tea Party. I rate it 9 out of 10 macarons. Good food selection, good atmosphere, the featured guests were very generous with their time and went to every table to socialize and to answer any questions you had. They posed for photos and munched on some sweets, some of which was too good that they got some to go! I saw some pretty creative coords as well. The 75 dollar ticket fee might be pricey, but I think it was well worth it in many ways (plus that gift in the end was pretty neat).

Videos and Pictures done by Ash. This was my first brand tea party, and it was okay. I wasn’t that excited since I’m more of an AliPi fan, but Ashy seemed to be more excited than I was. In fact, I felt nervous when the designers slowly came to our table and barely said a lot during the tea party. Ashy, an AP fanatic, had a lot of fun by asking the designers a lot of ouji related questions, such as if there was a lot of men dressed in ouji.A lot of sweets so by the time the tea party was done, I NEEDED some real food.

I’d probably go again to next year’s brand tea party if Ashy wants to come with me.

Along with pumpkin flavored foods, I love peanut butter and chocolate.

I dont even know what Id do if someone gave me a pound of Reese’s

What are the pros and cons to being in a relationship with a lolita?
Anonymous

Same thing with any other relationship I suppose…

…except for more frills, bows, and tea parties. Both shoes and events.

And the sweets. My god, the sweets.

Some Pros:

-A lot of sweets to eat -Fancy dress up time -Meetups and Events -Being with someone similar is fun and comforting. 

Some Cons:

-Gotta buy brand haha. -I have to allocate for extra time to get ready -Being on the lookout constantly for anything that might stain/ruin clothes -Some drama and negativity associated with meetups -Conventions take up SOOO much room in my car haha.

What cosplay characters do you cosplay? What cosplay was the most fun and why? Do you prefer cosplaying with or without a group?
Anonymous

Taro from Okami and her Seven Companions and Len from Vocaloid. I say I had the most fun with Taro because his cosplay was simple and my group all had fun. I stopped with his outfit since I dont get along with the group, mainly being made up of my ex’s friends. Len was pretty fun too, but hot in the getup.

Small groups with people im close with or solo. Less drama.

Do you have a more detailed blog somewhere else, or is this the only place you blog?

I used to blog, but between photo editing, conventions, work, and other events, something eventually had to go.

I usually use tumblr to have mini-blogs or to express more negative/darker thoughts.

Anime USA 2014, Fashion and Culture

9 out of 10. Did I have fun? Hell yes. Would I go back next year? Probably not since it won’t have a lot of stuff that appeals to me (2015’s main focus may stray from fashion). Time for a pros and cons list:

Pros:

-A variety of panels that explores the main focus, fashion and culture, while having anime related panels as well.

-A badass ARCADE room hosted by Bemani Invasion. DDR, Pump it Up, and various rhythm games are ALWAYS an incentive for me to go to that convention. To start out my day right or whenever I was waiting for a panel, I would hit up the dance games in the arcade room. 

-Maid + Host Cafe. I thought this convention offered a good option for maids and hosts for later hours. Not gonna lie, the hosts were very handsome.

-Good size, weather, and numbers. I have a big bias for small to mid sized cons, and although there weren’t a lot of people this year, it was much more comfortable than AWA or Momocon. Whenever I go to those cons, I get bombarded with tons of visual stimulation everywhere. Too many cosplayers, too many panels, too hot from all the warm bodies adding to the temperature (maybe I’m getting too old haha). With the smaller to mid sized cons, I can direct my attention to individuals more instead of being selective and ignoring a lot of people. The building was nice and cool with a cool breeze the outside weather offered as well… …perfect temperatures for pirate ouji.

The bad:

-If you’re looking for a big con environment, then you may need to think again. It wasn’t crowded like AWA, so if big, big crowds are your thing, you might get disappointed. Expect to see a lot of fashion interested people? This is a big maybe. 

-I thought the organization for the walk-ons during the masquerade needed improvement. It would have been more professional if the walk-ons had some practice before show time. Nevertheless, it was pretty simple to do.

—————

I mainly decided to go to Anime USA because they offered a variety of choices when it came to fashion. VK, rave stuffs, street fashion, and steampunk was some of the offerings. AWA 2014 was like an extension of work in my opinion, for I was constantly on the go and never really had time to relax. I don’t think I even went to a panel haha, but Anime USA was different. Being able to go solo in a place where nobody knows you and being able to do whatever you want is really refreshing to me. Yeah, it’s a bit lonely, but I’m able to relax better and enjoy the con weekend, and boy did I have fun.

Special fashion guest Mika Takeuchi showed off her designs in the fashion show. I gotta say, she had some CUTE designs. Dark, gothic fashion, similar to Frill and Gramm.

The Schwarz Stein concert was small, but there was PLENTY of room. I didn’t watch much, but it was pleasant to see them perform.

Saturday night rave was okay. Plenty of space to dance, not too hot, and the dj was okay. I only stayed for an hour since I kinda got bored with his selection of music.

*Final Thoughts*

I definitely had more fun and was able to relax with this convention than AWA. In fact, call me crazy, but I think this convention was even BETTER than AWA. Maybe it was just the fact that I was busy this year, but it brought back the fun I had expected for. AUSA felt like a good jog while AWA was HIIT. Fashion-wise, I think both offered a good variety of panels, and AUSA had a good proportion of people wearing such fashion, like lolita and VK. AWA had a BUNCH of lolita and I can’t blame them since the fashion guest was Baby. Either way, you can’t go wrong with each con. Will I go next year? That depends on the theme for 2015.

For my next con, I’m going to head towards Virginia for Nekocon.

I dropped my hat when I bowed.

Shiiiiieeeeetttttt haha

SNEAK PEEK of my AWA (Baby the Stars Shine Bright) weekend. Oh, and sandwiches. Cause people loveeeeee mini sandos. Except for cucumber sandwiches.

AWA was sure something. Long story; short version: I had fun, although it felt like I was at work?!?
I’ll update this along with some more pictures throughout the week and next, but I may be busy since I’ll be flying into D.C. for Anime USA.
Here’s ashycatastrophe, sans feet. I kept making fun of her by saying Baby got better dresses XD

Hey hey, quick update.

It’s Day 6 of the photoshoot diet, with tomorrow starting Day 5. Lately I’ve been drinking a lot of water and eat salty foods to prep my body. Now I haven’t done this before and was curious to see if it worked, and so far I’ve been doing well in following the directions. I can’t wait till Day 3 so I can eat a lot of potatoes and sweet potatoes haha. Other than that, I’m probably gonna wear ‘Nilla Chan provided by the girlfriend on Saturday. And probably switch back to ouji later on the evening . And back to punk wear for dancing at the dance.

Friday is gonna be some VK, since I think it’ll be too hot for ouji. For the fashion social later in the evening, new stuff hopefully, if the goods arrive on time….

Jackie Chan Adventures Ep 6

gooood memories with this show

I spoke too soon. A couple days later, I received an email that I got accepted to model for a designer XD

… that means I cant eat all the junk food I want and drink as much as I like, for the following week Ill be driving/flying to D.C. for ANIME USA, depending on what I decide to wear for the convention of course.

Also, another dilemma. When Im looking at clothes online, the shops often have a sale and discount the stock up to 50 or 60percent off after several months. Lower prices if you wait, but at a cost of your desired item selling out…

it is kinda frustrating when I do see something I bought like a week ago, go on sale later haha, but you live and you learn.

Reservation Time: September 12, 2014 17:00 Japan Time

Color(s): Black x Black, Black x Red (Lining)

I just saw this the other day, but not sure about the pricing. Cappy Schwartz was cheaper and had more detail, even the Thaddeus vest that they restocked is cheaper so not really sold on this coat yet…

…unless I find a badass tricorn. Then I’ll probably get it. I got a week to decide before they open up reservations this weekend.
