Video: Lolita Problems Part 2 by Deerstalker Pictures 2

Hey guys! Long time no post.
I've been busy lately and I am going to visit my family in Japan in 2 days.

Meanwhile, check out this (relatively recent) Deerstalker's video of Lolita Problems: Part 2!


Andy as Mr. Yan is HILARIOUS. I nearly died when I saw him. Actually he (Andy not Mr Yan) was the one who introduced me to our local community a year ago. Before then I had been a lone lolita for almost a decade.

I have a backlog of meets and photos I was meant to put up and hopefully I have time to post them up before the year ends. If not, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas season and a lovely New Year! I will definitely be posting photos from Japan from my Instagram if you like travel photos.

See you!

Double Video Update with Deerstalker Pictures and Töck & Phantasmafloria!

Hi everyone! I just thought I will update you guys on what I have been doing lately!
I have worked with some of my friends from the community, one being Deerstalkers Pictures (first video) and  Töck & Phantasmafloria (second video).

In the video above, my friends Goldie, Simone, Ann, Maya and I tackle some real issues we face as a Lolita Fashionista. We're mostly joking around - although I know some of you can really relate to some of the problems. Especially the one where people try to snap photos of us without permission! Ann handles it tremendously "AY MATE YOU WANNA GO HUH!?" !!!! Deerstalkers are currently working on part 2 so stay tuned!

In this video, Bing and I unbox our Holy Lantern series from Angelic Pretty! Bing is so funny throughout the whole thing, ESPECIALLY at the end. Bing and I recently became really close, and we keep enabling each other to buy things. It's a bad relationship. Hahaha.

I had a lot of fun filming with friends! If you like these videos make sure to subscribe to their channels Deerstalker Pictures 2 and Töck & Phantasmafloria

Until next time!!

Here is another late post! I promised to post about the SMASH! 2015 Fashion Show that took place last month. Well, the official photos are out, and here is my outfit! (above). I am honoured to represent the Korean Lolita brand, Haenuli. Most of you people interested in Lolita fashion have already heard of this brand, but just in case, their webshop is here and here is their facebook page.

Video: "How to Buy from Angelic Pretty"

The wonderful Goldie and Elliot from Deerstalker Pictures, Maya and myself got together to create this comedic video "How to Buy from Angelic Pretty"which was released yesterday.
*spoilers* I've already posted this on my social media platforms, but basically, I play the role of AP Queen Bee who gets the release straight away, much to the dismay (and murderous intent) of those other salty Lolitas. 
I also play the role of a cute babby ita maid who is sacrificed to the AP gods in hope to obtain the ever elusive releases. I hope you enjoy the video!

Convention: SMASH! 2015 Highlights

SMASH! is a Japanese contemporary culture convention bringing together Cosplayers, Lolitas, Anime fans and Japan enthusiasts alike. I have only been to SMASH once during my high school years, and it was tad smaller back then. I was very surprised at how big the new venue, Rosehill Gardens was, and the many events and stalls that were happening on this busy, busy weekend.

This year I volunteered at the J-Fashion Indie Corner stall at SMASH! 2015. I did this as a favour of my friend Kate, who runs Rouge Aerie Designs. She is currently in America tending to some urgent business so some of us jumped on board to help her out. Kate is a lovely person and she deserves all the help she can get, really. On Day One I wore Misty Sky, and on Day Two I wore my signature CDC!!

This part will focus on the action and the second post will feature everyone's beautiful twin (and individual) outfit shots of the day.

The high tea was held in the Sir Stamford Hotel, a beautiful venue.
The food was lovely!

Lolita Community Meet: Ice Skating and Pancakes!

Two Saturdays ago I organised an meet where we could go ice skating and then have pancakes afterwards! We all had a blast!

There were a few new lolitas at the meet and it was great meeting them and making friends with them. There was some winter festival in the city, so we took photos in the beautiful light display.

Lolita Community Meet: The Tea Cosy High Tea, Game Centre and Ramen!

 On Sunday a few lolitas and I went to the Tea Cosy for a casual, private meet up.
 Jen, Maya and Me (from left to right)
 Maya (In pink AP) hosted this lovely event. The theme was casual, so I went without a petticoat. Other girls went in otome, or lolita style with a light petti. This lovely backdrop (above) is actually an artwork!
The tea sets were gorgeous - We were able to select two beverages each, so I chose a hot cherry ripe tea and a lemongrass and ginger iced tea with apple and mint  (both definitely recommended)
The sandwiches were nice, the pastries were a little bit sugary for me, but the winner in the food category was definitely the scones with pear and vanilla jam. They were amazing!

Catch up with Maya

(Mai in Crystal Dream Carnival JSK and Maya in Dream Marine OP)
Maya and I are planning to co-ord together at the upcoming twin meet next month!
We both love navy so we are going to be decked out in navy and gold!

The Missing Piece (and it's sister The Vogue Cafe) is fast becoming our favourite hang out place.
This coconut banana smoothie was amazing, topped with caramel popcorn, violet crumble chocolate, pearl chocolates and desiccated coconut.

Lolita Community Meet: Hinamatsuri tea party at my house!

This is quite a late post, I do apologise! This is a meet I hosted back in the first of March. My theme was ~elegant, girly and refined~ to celebrate Girl's Day, or Hinamatsuri.

 Here are some of my favourite outfits of the day:

This is Sophie wearing Milky berry from Angelic pretty. This berry print is so lovely!

I love "Anne"s triple fortune bonnet. She always looks super gorgeous!

Lolita Community Meet: Valentine's Day Picnic

On the weekend before Valentines day, several lolitas got together to have a themed picnic. I wore a chocolate themed co-ord, as chocolate is traditionally given from girls to boys on Valentine's day in Japan.
Everyone looked super fab, even under the 30 degree heat!
I bought my huge hello kitty picnic rug.

Travel Diary: Osaka, Japan 2014 Part 02

Shin-imamiya is in the southern part of Osaka, near Tennoji. There are a lot of  family-owned shops and restaurants in the small alleys surrounding Tsutenkaku Tower. This particular place is also English-Speaker friendly (English signs/menus). The sushi was super fresh and delicious!

Travel Diary: Osaka, Japan 2014 Part 01

Late last year I went to visit my grandmother in Japan.
We spent the first couple of nights in Osaka to do some shopping.

Mum and I should win awards for cutest luggage. I should warn you, do not put really heavy items in Chocoholic (on the right) or Swimmer luggage, they simply do not hold the weight. the bottom wheels fall off (this is the third or fourth one I bought, I ALWAYS fall for the cute prints.) Mum's polka dot suitcase (on the left) is from a local mall in our hometown. It is extremely sturdy and practical, as it has four wheels. I ended up buying a similar one on the way home, and I'm happy with it.

Our first meal when we arrived at our hotel. I've missed family mart!
