Punk Not Dead Lolita

Punk Lolita is a decidedly difficult style to pull off! But I really love it *u*  It's not popular due to how easily it can simply become Punk and lose the elegance of a Lolita aesthetic, but we decide to challenge anyway!

Really, this is the smallest meetup ever, with only two attendants ^^;   However, that did make finding somewhere to eat very easy, and also meant we could chat more!

Sparkle Stitches~ Scallop Hem Tutorial

I did a scallop tutorial a few years ago, but here is a redo anyway! It's a good basic skill to have.

I like the effect of scallops, but they are really rather fiddly and time-consuming. There are also many small mistakes to watch out for! So now I'd like to share the things I've learned over the years.

*Matching fabric at least 10cm wide X hem length
*Matching thread
*Sharp shears

Catlaxy Exhibit

I've finally (mostly) finished moving to a new apartment!  Hooray!  Ahem, anyway, this is not about my move~

Yesterday Doro and I met up at Stayreal Cafe (web) to see a small exhibit for stray cats. To be perfectly blunt, the exhibit was not executed very well, but it was a nice thought and still a lot of fun to take photos with! Plus, the full ticket price (NT$100) was donated so that's good ^_~v

Teddy's teaser photo
The exhibit was located in the basement of Stayreal Cafe, which was opened by a band member of 五月天/Mayday. There are always many tourists there so we had to wait about 40 minutes for a table.
Special edition drinks for the exhibit
Throughout the first floor of the cafe, there were many printouts of stray cats stuck throughout the displays.  Though cheap and pretty dinged up, they were still cute.

Doro and I both ordered the special edition drinks. Doro also ordered the special rice, but since the savory foods contained meat, I ordered a regular dish. The desserts were not so special, so we passed on those.

A Casual Halloween

This year's Halloween was overshadowed by the fact that I was moving into a new place! While that's exciting, it meant I had no time to prepare a costume. On Halloween night, I ended up meeting up with classmates from uni for dinner.  I simply wore a cybergoth outfit as I don't get many chances to wear cyber styles. Plus, this is the one time of the year you can wear anything and not get questioned about it!

I did prepare a costume for my teddy bear though ^u^v  She has more Halloween spirit than I!
