Smokey Silver Gothic Lolita Makeup Tutorial

I haven't been able to make custom thumbnails because after my laptop was reset I lost my Photoshop T^T  So I just have to pick the least derpy looking screenshot that Youtube offers!

Lolita Fashion Photoshoot and Fashion Show Market

On April 14th we had another market event in combination with a fashion show and photography booths.  What made this different (apart from the combination of events) was that there were sponsors!!

There was an uber-like sponsor that took us from the MRT station to the location free of charge, which was a great relief as many of us had lots of stuff to carry.

I went with a Gothic Lolita theme this time!
Also a bit vampire ^_~

My booth
 This was my first ever attempt at a smokey eye look, and I looked up lots of tutorials before doing it.  I think I did a good job for my first try *pats self on back*

Originally I was splitting a booth, but my partner dropped out so the sales I made pretty much only made me break even when factoring in cost of transportation and the vendors' fee T^T

My photos from the fashion show suck, so have a group photo by the official photographer instead!
Group Photo which I declined to join

 I am happy with this look so here's one more photo taken after I got home.  Skindinavia setting spray keeps everything in place so well!

EDIT: Official Fashion Show Video is UP

 On April 8 we had our chocolate model meetup as well as a ceremony for Laina's baby girl (three-month anniversary).  She had special-ordered cookies that were insanely adorable!!

Absolutely adorable!

Minori Tea Party in Hong Kong 2018

From April 1 through 3 I was in Hong Kong (for the first time!) with Mirage to attend shironuri artist Minori's Lolita tea party!  It was the first time I'd done a shironuri event/makeup.
At the party we made lots of new friends!  And Minori herself was very sweet.

Thanks to Mirage and Lun for some of the photos!

Since then I've practiced some more shironuri looks on my own (pictures on my instagram) and hope to improve quickly~  Though my style leans towards Cyberkei (a la Bazookistan) I still really admire Minori's artistic and detailed makeup style

Official HK Lolita photos are up!

Sakura Blossom Viewing

I can't believe I forgot to post this!  Recently I went with Doro and Kamiko to view sakura blossoms in the mountains.  It was really delightful apart from the other people trying to take photos of us and people touching Kamiko's baby like he was public property.
So this is basically just going to be a photo post!

Twinning Meetup!

My first time twinning (outside of a photoshoot) was so much fun!  We had a meetup where the theme was twins, though only Doro and I managed to coordinate together.  We even tried to have the same hair and makeup as much as possible!
Reflected twins!
 We went to a Hello Kitty restaurant to celebrate March birthday girls Kamiko and Neco!  Doro and I met up early and took so many photos @_@  Everything suddenly becomes more fun when you're twins!

Happy White Day!

We actually didn't realize it was White Day, but we had a small get-together yesterday just for fun!  Of course, most of us are daily lolitas so it ended up being like a casual Lolita meetup anyway ^_^

Necklace: handmade by me
 We went to woosa, a place that specializes in pancakes.  It's not as good as the Japanese style pancakes we had at previous meetups but it was still pretty good.  Just not very filling ^^;

As the title suggests, here are some photos of practicing shironuri makeup styles I've been trying recently.  It is different from normal makeup application O_O

First attempt; no idea what I was doing

Second attempt

Harajuku Market on a Rainy Day

On Feb. 3 we had another Harajuku market, but it was both cold and raining hard that day! So needless to say, sales were abysmal. Though I did make back the vendor fee, I then promptly went with my friends Kamiko and NiYa to the Vivienne Westwood sale and bought two pairs of paw-feet heels.

All the same, it was fun and I've since created a small stand-up display to better display my wares. I twinned with Taiwan Teddy that day and it was nice!
