Jester of all trades, mistress of none. I am a costumer (NOT a cosplayer)...mainly Harley Quinn and Star Wars, I am a MAJOR Chocoholic, and I recently started wearing Lolita. Those are the main three topics you are likely to see here, but I am also a huge bibliophile and geek, so most anything goes.

MLS – Brodach Irish Pub and Restaurant

Well, the meeting at work yesterday went a full two and a half hours (it never should have gone that long), but after the urging of one of my friends, I decided to head up to Milwaukee anyhow.  I arrived just in time for things to wrap up at Brodach, then quickly changed so that I could be in the group photos and not look extremely out of place.

Doctor Who is back on the big screen with the Series 8 Premiere – DEEP BREATH – on 25 August in cinemas throughout the US and Canada. 

Peter Capaldi’s first full episode as the Doctor - Deep Breath - will be screened in cinemas around the world from 23 August 2014.
This year’s screenings follow the success of the global cinema release of Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary episode The Day of the Doctor which was screened in over 1500 cinemas around the world, allowing fans to come together to watch the show like never before.
Steven Moffat comments, “Last November the Doctor didn’t just conquer the world on television, he did it in the cinemas too. And like the show-off he is, he can’t resist another go - one taste of the silver screen is never enough. On August 23rd the new Doctor will begin his new adventures on BBC One and in cinemas all over the world. Movie-land beware - Capaldi is coming to get you!” [x]

Theater locations and ticketing to be announced later this month.

You can find out more information on global cinema screenings at the doctorwho.tv dedicated cinema page as information arrives.

That ALWAYS drove me crazy.  Literature is widely up for personal interpretation, teachers should teach you how to interpret things on a personal level, not to interpret what they tell you to interpret.

Eataly Nutella Bar

If you live in Chicago or New York, you may have heard of Eataly, Italian marketplaces in the heart of these United States cities.

Nearly eight months after the Chicago location opened (December 2nd, 2013), I finally had the opportunity to visit Eataly, and more importantly, the Nutella Bar.

20140719_124921The menu is pretty much what you would expect, various cakes and such, slathered with Nutella.  There is…

Lolita 52 Week Challenge – Week 28

Week Twenty-Eight:  Bloomers or no bloomers? Definitely bloomers.  I know one thing girls usually sacrifice in the warm weather is their bloomers, but a good pair of cotton bloomers is better against your skin than your petticoat.

52WeekChallengeWeek Twenty-Seven:  Purses that I love

This would have been easier a few months ago, but I have acquired a few more purses recently, and I love them all.

20140711_004135This one has been one of my favorites for a few years now.  It is a ball, an actual ball.  Someone bought it for me in England (bonus points), and it has a Harley Quinn feel (double bonus).

Lolita 52 Week Challenge – Week 26

Week Twenty-Six:  How I get out of a wardrobe slump There have been a few times, especially in my first few months of dressing Lolita, where I just had absolutely nothing to wear that I had not worn recently.

An Outfit Recap

There have been a few events in the past couple of months, and I have not posted any updates or outfit posts for any of them.  This goes back to the “life in the way” post.  Oh, one good thing, I have a “job” now.  I was working at Six Flags for a couple months, but that did not really work out, and I was not making any money.  I quit there last week and this week was rehired by the first company…

Lolita 52 Week Challenge – Week 25

Week Twenty-Five:  Best places to wear Lolita This one really comes down to personal preference.  Some girls wear Lolita everyday, so it is hard to say there are places you cannot wear it (aside from common sense places like the Gym and such).

52WeekChallengeWeek Twenty-Four:  What’s in my makeup bag.

I started to write this out with my actual makeup bag, but have a lot of make-up, in a lot of different places, so I am going to assume this one is supposed to be more of a “what’s in my purse/bag” type of thing. 

20140617_183159Here is everything laid out:

Synonyms are weird because if you invite someone to your cottage in the forest that just sounds nice and cozy, but if I invite you to my cabin in the woods you’re going to die.

That is more of a psychological association though, because Cabin in the Woods is a horror movie.
