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.

Lolita 52 Week Challenge - Week 37

52WeekChallengeWeek Thirty-Seven:  Something that’s not my style, but I love anyways

Pastel wigs.  I absolutely adore them.  To be honest, I almost went on a pastel wig spree shortly before starting to dress Lolita, but then I realized something:  I look horrible in them.  My complexion and eyebrow color just do not suit light colored hair.  I am having this issue with a blonde wig I need to buy for a costume,…

August Favourites

Several of the blogs and vlogs that I follow do a monthly favorites post, and I thought that it may be nice to try it out.  I am going to try to list at least five things for each month, that may or may not be related to Lolita.  So, here is the first edition, for the month of August.

52WeekChallengeWeek Thirty-Six:  Nails to match my favorite look

This might sound like a bit of a cop out, but I never go for elaborate nails.  I keep my fingernails cut short due to all the circus and such that I do, and IF I paint them, it is always just a solid color.  I do like lots of different colors though, so as I do when I accessorize, I will focus on the more subtle colors in a print, or contrasting…

Lolita 52 Week Challenge – Week 35

Week Thirty-Five:  What I Thought When I Got My First Real Piece of Lolita Two things:  “Finally” and “I cannot believe I just spent that much money after I JUST loss my job.”

I am alone.

The world which shook at my feet, and the trees, and the sky, have gone, and I am alone now, alone.

Can’t. See me.

Item Number One:  White Shoes
I forgot exactly where I bought these, but I purchased them online (probably through ebay) just before the 2013 MegaMeet.  I had very few pairs of shoes that would work with Lolita at the time, and nothing in light colors. …
