Rose Toilette x Rilakkuma

Again with the freakin’ Round One? My wifey, Christine planned a meetup for Round One almost a month in advanced to see Richard and I, and Richard’s schedule was changed without notice. He wasn’t able to go. I still went, but man, she was pretty livid that he didn’t get to go. I was pissed too and even offered to make up his pay out of my own, but he went to work anyways. ;26 I had a great time with Lizzie, Kevin D, Stiffany, Devin, Kara, Kevin, Christine, Ashley and Lisa(?). I didn’t get to hang out with Ashley and Lisa much but they were nice to see and both were are beautiful as could be. I was mad jelly. ;159 ;142

 

Proof that this heavenly girl is human like the rest of us. ;164 ;166

We had the opportunity to run into Eki from Ekiblog.com. Christine was just ecstatic and I’m so happy she was able to meet one of her idols. ;59

Photo of the rilakkuma I tried to win (and did ;86 ) for myself, as well as the Korila I won for Christine. I need to win one for Lizzie one of these days. I don’t want anyone to feel left out and I love Lizzie. She’s so cute and her coords always amaze me.

Not pictured is a stuffed Hello Kitty I helped a little boy and his Grandmother catch.

I gotta break this curse of three toys per visit. I WANT FOUR TOYS, DAMNIT. /greedy ;152 ;152

Rila wants the ice cream from the UFO ice cream catcher. ;115

Bowling! I didn’t get a good picture of Kara but she’s so sweet and cute! Stiffany is holding my win! (I need to win her one too. Omg ;57 )

I’m really starting to love my red Rose Toilette coord. Especially since I found the old waist ties (used to alter a previous colorway of the skirt) and made a sweater brooch/clip from it.

I have enough to make another rose toilette clip in red, and I think I may end up making a few of these to sell since I personally think they really tie together coords that use boleros or parkas. The rilakkuma is from a keychain that fell apart. He’s gonna go on this brooch permanently. (Though I think I may move him to the bigger bow since it seems a bit unbalanced to have him on that tiny bow)

Lomo of my make. Would you believe me if I said I wasn’t wearing circle lenses? Mine expired, and I ordered new ones too late to have them by the meet up. ;27 I felt a bit weird without them but it worked out just fine, I think.

SoCal Lolita Picnic n Swapmeet

This month just has been taking me up and down the walls. I’m exhausted. Taking extra shifts at work, taking care of Ma and going to as many events as possible to explore my area more. (Even though LA/OC isn’t particularly my area. ;140 )

So without much ado here’s a photodump of the meetup. Some photos are taken from FB, some are mine, but two (The obviously pro ones) are courtesy of Laphotonet.com. ;138

Handmade Sugary Carnival Bonnet

With complete and total credit for the tutorial to Serepuff. (Seriously, go check her out), I was able to make a sugary carnival bonnet. It’s not that great considering it’s my first one, but damnit. I’m proud of it. ;101

I made it with my waist-ties and some scrap fabric that I had from altering the length of the dress. (Read the previous post regarding that) ;164

Picture dump time.
