Embroidery for fun fun fun!!!

I had a great time adding this little flemish inspired piece to a scarf for a custom order. I was so happy she let me do whatever I wanted! I added a little fabric origami butterfly as an accent. And the best part? She loved it too!

I also made this great little monster hair clip for a friend! Those monster teeth are my favorite, and I love the little hearts! They were so much fun!

Renaissance Fair! Fantasy, fairies and friends!

There is nothing like going all dressed up with friends! I made this outfit in a day, it was really fun!
Doo, me and Bae Bae looking fabulous!! We had a great time walking around, although between the hat, wig and headdress, it was difficult for us to stand too closely together! Ha ha ha! 
Bae Bae the pirate, Me as a fairy!

Me as a fairy, Doo as fabulous as usual!

It was so fun to make the wings, they were so soft and fluffy!

I had a great time playing games, like this one! I ride a ziplined horse to attack a dragon! YAAAAH!!!

Or this one, throwing heads! I actually got two out of three, the third one was weighted funny..... Curse you fair games!! 
It was a great time, and I want to do it again!!!

Jellyfish Meetup!

There was a great Year of the Sheep celebration happening at the Japanese gardens, and our little group decided to do a meetup! I was happy (and lucky!) enough to be twinning! Nothing like being super matchy matchy with someone!

I had the Lost at Sea dress, but I really wanted to have a haunted headdress to go with it! So I made a little ship out of paper mache and glue sticks, then I added details with apoxie sculpt! I painted it all pretty and added some ribbons to boot!

I was also lucky enough to find this silver purse at the thrift store for two dollars! I added a million ribbons to it, and here is jellyfish bag!

It was so fun meeting up with everyone and I really want to twin again sometime!

Happy Year of the Sheep! --Yuki the sheep ring

Making a Jedi costume!

I was contacted to make a Jedi costume and I loved making it!! Her design was so cool, and it was great working with her ideas!
I ended up buying a vintage kimono for the top part, and used silk noil that I hand dyed and made into a skirt!

The kimono was so pretty, I scraped the plan of cutting it up, and ended up just adding an elastic piece to the skirt. It clipped int and was totally hidden by the belt! 

I also made a nice leather belt with a little loop for her lightsaber and a bag to fit her iphone and wallet!

I had to try it on (even though I had tailored it to fit her measurements!

Secret Santa! Lolita style!

I managed to finish all my little unicorn accessories, and it was off to the Secret Lolita party! I was super tired since I had to work an early morning shift, but I sat myself with a bottle of sake and enjoyed delicious sushi!

Everyone looked so nice!
 I loved the part where one of my friends wanted to do Loli mustaches! Ha ha ha ha!

I was so excited about my gift, a sheep ring! I decided to name him Yuki! I'm so happy about the fact that it'll be the year of the sheep, he'll be perfect for adventures!

I was kind of sleepy by the time we did individual shots, but I was very happy with my outfit nonetheless!

I'll end with a Lolita star of fun!

Unicorn Purse! Finished and Frilly!

I love unicorns so so much, (as I'm sure I mentioned previously) and had to make myself a purse to go with the rest of my unicorn outfit!

First I went to the local thrift store and found this gem! No stains, brand new, and 100% leather for only two dollars! Yay!
It had his cute little pocket thingy on the front that I had to remove so I could add the unicorn to the front! Bye bye!
I then sketched out a couple of unicorns to see what would look best. This was the winning design!

In order to trace it perfectly, I cut out the head and traced it with paint onto a piece of leather.
After that I added some black highlights and the rose petals!
I found some red ribbon and extra lace, and bam! Purse complete!!

I love it sooooooo much! It took me about two days to figure out which design would work best, but overall, it was a fun project!

Unicorn outfit start!

I have a holiday Lolita meetup, so I wanted to make it totally unicorn themed! I found an ornament on ebay and went on a bidding war for it!
I have big plans for it! I'm totally doing a veil/bow for me to wear!
Since my veil fabric is a sage color (leftover from my Aigitha costume!) I also really wanted to add little wristcuffs to tie the outfit together!
 First I crafted little unicorns, then I decided I want to try enameling them. I had green, but it went decidedly blue! Also, it didn't seems to make a difference from my other oil based paints.....I like the part where the apoxie sulpt looked it it was burned?? And I thought that stuff was invincible!
Anyway, I used this great tutorial for the wrist cuffs here! This is the first one and I love it!

I was also busy making this custom piece from my shop! Feathers and peacocks galore!

And here is another piece where I added a little fabric brooch to this wooly sweater! So cute! I wish I could keep it!

Anyway, more magic to come soon!
