Gal-oween 2011 + Some get!

Last night was awesome. I was invited to attend the Royal T/Gal-oween down in Culver City. Closest event to my house, ever. :party: I had no excuse to miss it.  I was a little intimidated by what to wear.  ;41 In the end, I went with something Gal inspired, instead of trying to come up with a costume or coping out with lolita.  ;163

Stopped in at JapanLA to pick up the last Sentimental Circus case for the iphone 4. Bwuahaha. I have both styles now. ;146 I want that giant Rilakkuma in the window! ;90

Went to Korean BBQ for dinner. Finally got to try the marinated squid. Turns out I only like the tentacles. The fins are too tough for me to enjoy so I made Richard eat them all. ;89 Ended up sticking to bulgolgi and beef brisket. ;39


Obligatory bathroom shot.

Ashley was derping so I covered her face for her sake. ;67 Next to her is Mandie from GeekyGlamorous who looked just fantabulous! Everyone was wearing kigus except for me. I loaned mine out to Chibi for Haloween or something.

Isn’t she amazing!?

The shop girls from ShibuyaLA. They were selling W ;59 C stuff! It was cash only though and all I had was a credit card. ;57 Next time…for sure!! ;164

I didn’t get very many photos. Richard got loads more but I can’t figure out how to get them off his Bionic. ;32 Oh well, they will end up on Facebook.

And today! My Gameboy case for the iphone 4 came today! I thought it was gonna be a jelly case. It was a hard case and only cost me $5.00! ;147 These are the cases I have now.

The gameboy case really brings me back to the long car rides to and from LA as a little girl. ;134 It also makes me a feel a little old. ;161

Made my night

Guess what came in the mail??? :party: All the way from Aussieland!!

The detail on the print is just insane. :korila: At the same time, the dress itself is fairly simple which really helps bring your eye back to the intricacy of the panel print. This dress fits me like a dream and didn’t require alteration at all. Which makes me feel awesome. I don’t enjoy having to alter my dresses so the more I lose weight, the less of a heartbreak it will be when I buy dresses that end up not fitting. :

I tried it on, only to end up going out to dinner in it. Sadly, I was completely wiped out from my extern shift at the hospital. Not only was I falling asleep in the car and at my plate, ;40 but I had completely knocked out after eating and didn’t realize that I had a shift to work that evening at my regular job. I had been over 9000% sure that the shift had been Wednesday, but I got a voicemail asking if I was ok from my poor assistant manager. ;57

 

(Ahyup, Lotta is fully zipped. It fits as an underbust with my tig ol bitties.)

Over the weekend, I decided to do a weird thing. I woke up from a nap and just got ready to go down to L.A. and Round One. Out of the blue. ;18 It was a bit random, even for me. Took Richard to a cool place in the Tokyo Plaza mall called Honda-ya. My lovely wife, Christine, introduced it to me. It was pretty cool, and Richie I think enjoyed it. ;18 The bummer part of it was that I was in such an out of sorts mood that I couldn’t even focus enough to get a UFO prize.

Lucky strike over and over

I’m not dead, yet! This past month has just been really lucky and busy for me. :fyeah: I finally finished paying for Innocent World’s most rare dress; Lotta deer in brown. ;101 It’s simply amazing; but I managed some how to double my amazing GET. I found and purchases an L sized SACRED NIGHT jsk from Lief in black x gold! Even better, is that I got it for less than $200USD from Australia. (I’m still waiting on it though.) ;105 ;86

Two of my ultimate dream dresses have been obtained and though I am currently running the risk of altering Lotta deer (I’d never sell it anyways), I’m not disappointed with my purchases, what so ever. ;43

It’s just amazing in person. ;162 My bust is currently about 5″ too big for it but it fits my waist unaltered which makes me feel really good. I’m hoping I can loose a few more inches in my bust before I resolve to alter it. It’s a priceless piece and I would rather see if I can do something about myself before I do something about the dress. :korila:

The details of this piece are far more amazing, yet simple than any other piece I’ve seen from IW so far. The simplicity makes it really complex.

Print details!

Close up of Lotta-chan and the little details. ;07

For Sacred Night, it’s on a much more gothic scale as opposed to classic. It came out this year in January and I missed out on the pre-orders due to lack of job. Shortly after, Lief went on an unannounced hiatus; who knows when they will return. Even so, their prints are all relatively exclusive as they only make about 200 of each dress. Finding this one, even though it wasn’t my first color choice was like “LOL ALL THE LUCK FOR ONCE.” ;142

The catalog photos of the ivory are amazing. So, just imagine it in black and gold!

Not quite sure how I am going to coord it though. I’ve never been much of a gold person. ;16 If you have any suggestions, please let me know! I’d love to hear them!

And last but certainly not least (for reals. I have more GET on the way for once)

I was able to finally upgrade my phone and early to boot. ;116 I ordered the iPhone 4 and even managed to get it in white. The 4 S is not much different, plus I’m too poor to afford much more than the regular iphone 4. I did order a bunch of cases accessories for it though. ;41

(Can you tell I am Chappeux crazy yet? LOL)

What I really like about the iphone 4, is that the screen is wonderfully clear, the keyboard is responsive and I can text with little to no errors; I can finally use all the apps I’ve been hearing about; and it’s nice to finally have a phone that doesn’t take 5 minutes to load an app. :merr: My old phone was on its last legs and I was concerned it wouldn’t last me until my official upgrade date. This phone actually has switched me from an android user to an iOS user. (But that still doesn’t mean that I like Apple products over all. LOL) ;103

I’m still exploring the phone and learning how to use it since this is my first Apple product. Like earlier, it took a little tech support from my friend to figure out that there’s a mute button on the side and that’s why I couldn’t get my ringtones or anything else to make any noise on the phone. ;67

Have any apps you really like? Leave me a comment! I would love to try it!
