April Art Dump

I don't have much to put in the dump this month, and most of what I do have are pencil sketches, but I feel like I've still gotten art stuff done because I've worked hard in art class and stuff.
Here's the only colored piece I finished this month.

 And here's a self portrait! I hate drawing self portraits with a burning passion, but we're in a self portrait unit in art class so I have a bunch of these lying around. This is my favorite because it makes me look prettier than I really am.
And Just for fun, here are some doodles I did for a friend this month.

Now that I look at it, this month's art dump is kind of disappointing.

Cycling with Betsy

I was doing some wardrobe cleaning and I was having a hard time getting rid of this top, so I threw it on Betsy just to say goodbye to it. Also I got a bicycle pin.

Outfit Post: Pastel Explostion

I tried to post every day this week but I forgot to post yesterday so I'm posting twice today to make up for it... sort of. Anyway, I really love this hairstyle and it was surprisingly easy to make. Also, I suck at posing so bad. I always look derpy.

Sugary Pink Shopping

I spent a little bit more than I should have today u__u
but I finally got a new wallet, and it's cute and pink! No more boring black leather for me!!
 Also some adorable notebook paper. Now even my homework can be cute! I can't wait to write cute letters on this new paper too <3
 Lastly I bought this Japanese soda. Mostly because it was "Gettin' Cool!" brand soda, and I find that to be hilarious for some reason. The soda itself was a little too sweet for my taste, but I might wash out the bottle and have it live on my bookshelf from now on.

I found the Instruction booklet for my ancient sewing machine the other day! Now I finally know what year it was made, 1952, that makes it older than my parents.  At the back there's a lot of useful (and lolita friendly) tutorials such as how to sew ruffles, lace and shirring.

 My collection of old sewing papers doesn't end there either. I also have a few vintage needle packets.

they're so pretty u__u

deco hat

I had this straw mini hat that I don't use anymore, so I deco'd it. I don't really know what to wear it with, so right now it's living on my bookshelf.

Also, I'm really confused by blogger's new look. I don't like change!

Outfit post: Flight

This is my first outfit post in a while. I wanted to wear my new handmade JSK today. I went really sweet this time with all the large bows, next time I want to try and wear something more Victorian Maiden inspired with this JSK. I also learned to take jump shots, I will most definitely abuse this power in the future.

Outfit Rundown!

Finally Finished

I have been working on this one dress since like september. I kept getting distracted by smaller projects. but today I finally finished it!

 OK, I really don't know whay blogger rotated my pictures but here's the dress.
 A close up of my favorite part. The bodice was really  hard to do. Not only because of the corset lacing (which was hard ) but also because the shape of the bodice itself was a lot more complicated than the other bodices I've made. The bow on the top of the dress is removeable btw.

 some fabric shots because I really like fabric shots.

I can't wait to co-ordinate this <3

A DSLR adventure with my sewing suplies

my pin cushion.
 My sewing machine. Well.... not the one to do actual sewing in, but I inherited this sewing machine a few years ago, and I've been waiting to take pretty pictures with it.

The box where I keep my lace and ribbons.

The fabric of the project I'm currently working on. I can't wait to take pictures when it's finished.
thanks for reading!

Kattoo and Betsy's first DSLR adventure

My mom let me borrow here DSLR since I lost my camera. Me and Betsy had lots of fun with this new toy!

I'm not a good photographer at all, but taking pictures is really fun so you can probably expect a few more DSLR adventure posts in the future

Dyed Denim

So, inspired by all the cool cats on tumblr, I decided to dye a pair of shorts pastel colors. I should have some awesome outfits planned for this, but this is one of those things I never really envisioned myself finishing, despite the fact that I've had all the materials bought for a while.
It was kind of cold and damp in my house so I took them outside to dry.  Here's a close up of the gradient effect

A little bit of shopping

Did some thrifting today, found this awesome purse, I think it'll work great for mori, dolly kei or OTT classic lolita. And it was only $3 :D
 I've been obsessed by nail polish recently, and I noticed my collection was lacking anything pastel so I realized that had to be fixed.
