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.

Dream of Lolita: Sugary Carnival Review

Dream of Lolita. We have all heard about them by now. They’ve caused huge splashes with their reproduction of popular Angelic Pretty prints, and the extreme popularity of one in particular; Sugary Carnival. A replica that was released around the same time Angelic Pretty decided to re-release the original print. There’s too many mixed opinions on the replication of these dresses and prints; at this point, I’m for it especially for girls who either can’t seem to find a real one, need one for every day (and own a real one) or can’t fit a real one.  To me, it’s a bandaid.

 

Please be warned: this is extremely image heavy.

Get your drank on

Last Friday, I invited my lovely wife, Christine, out for a lunch date at Paris in a Cup (will post photos for this next time). ;23 In turn, she invited me out for drinks since she turned 21 the previous tuesday. (Happy Birthday, my love.) ;42

My girl! This diva thought she could hit an Apple Martini as her first drink.

Straight alcohol on the first drink? Damn, you gots a drive. (She gave it to Kevin. It was too bitter for her) ;67

I ordered a strawberry daiquiri thinking it’d be an easy drink.

Several of these daquiris later…. ;105

We get kicked out and the staff took a souvenir photo for us. ;58 (We didn’t actually get kicked out.)

We did time-warp to Sticky Piccy though.

Pretty sure Kevin thinks I’m out of control at this point. ;79

Lizzie and Little boy Blue gettin’ their pick of purikura. ;59

They didn’t do the $1 karaoke. ;26 I was sad, I wanted to be obnoxious in there with them. ;64

Less than presentable. I hadn’t noticed my necklace or my bow being undone at all.

Damn you alchy! You make sloppy look good. ;60

We ended up at The Balcony to sober me up some more because I had to drive 2 hours back home.

What’d we get? SHAVED ICE (With live DJ toppings)

Actually, it was strawberries and bananas. The way the ice was shaved though, it was just like ice cream!
