LBC: Lolitas Around The World: Who Inspires You?

I'm back with another Lolita Blog Carnival post. This weeks theme was another fun and personal choice and I was excited to share my story.
At first it was hard to think of a Lolita that inspires me. So I browsed around my inspiration folder and noticed a few Lolita's and Kawaii fashion wearers pop up quite often. These people inspire me through fashion, make-up and photoshoot ideas and poses.

The first Lolita inspiration I came across was Shelby Cloud. I had just started Lolita fashion and stumbled upon her YouTube channel. I loved how she was so experimental. She always looks cute and elegant. Not only did her style attract me to the fashion but also her personality. On her channel she gives tips, tutorials and such and she always comes over as a kind gentle person. Due to work she's not as active anymore but even then she's still my number one. 

Alexa Poletti is not so much a Lolita fashion wearer but I still love her style and it influeneces my outfits too. It was my boyfriend who first found a picture of her a few years ago. And ever since we've been fans. I think what I love most about her most is her wigs and make-up. I love wigs and make-up and because of her I found my own make-up look which I coorporate into my Lolita looks.

This is one of my latest inspirations. None other than shironuri fashion artist Minori. I really love OTT fashions and make-up and she goes even beyond that. Her style is magical and intriging. I would love to try out this style one day. I try to create a sense of magicalnes in my outfits due to her.

 Other than the people mentioned above I still collect a whole lot of inspirations from lots of different people on Tumblr, Facebook etc. What ever I find interesting and pretty would go into my inspiration folder. I love a bit of everything.

Youtube Make Up Video!


 This week there wont be a LBC post but instead I'm posting about something I recently placed on Youtube. As of late I have started learning to use video tools to make videos. I've wanted to make them for quite some time but never found the time or motivation to do it. I'm really glad I've finally started because its alot of fun.
I posted my first video last year. It wasnt much but it was my first stepping stone nevertheless. I love learning things and this is a great oppotunity to learn more about specific media tools. I'm even contemplating in learning how to use Photoshop. I'm in the process of building my new PC and hopefully everything should be up and running this coming month.
If your interested in seeing my video do check in out below. I hope to become more active on my Youtube account posting many things that interest me. Most of it will probably be about Lolita fashion, health and beauty. I just love watching those kind of videos. They really inspire and motivate me.

I hope you like it.

Thanks for reading and take care!

LBC: Your favorite "Two" Pairs of Shoes for Lolita

There are so many fun topics to write about when you're a member of the Lolita Blog Carnival group. This weeks topic is about an item that every girl (be she Lolita or no Lolita) has a lot of. It's shoes. They're very essential. I really do beleive that a great coord is not complete without two things; a wig and the right shoes!

So for this topic I picked out my two favorite pairs. The main reason for me choosing them is their comfort and durability. Which really says alot about the quality.
I just cant stand when I buy a pair of shoes and they break after a few months of use. It really makes me boil over because shoes are so important. Without any (good) shoes we can kiss our lovely feet goodbye. 
We'll get so many foot problems, and may end up not being able to walk proberly later on in life.  
I really love my feet or feet in general. And anything that goes on my feet needs to be comfortable before anything else. Pretty shoes aren't everything (only sometimes) so my favorites arent the most spectactular, but I would love to be burried in them nevertheless.

The white pair were my first Lolita shoes. I bought them from Secret Shop I believe. The other black pair are from Bodyline. 

Curious to know what the other shoe favorites are? Then check out the blogs below!

LBC: Disney Coordinate

This weeks LBC topic is definitely the most fun thus far. As the title already indicates a Disney coordinate. I love Disney so I put together my own coord that resembled one of the characters.
I had many interesting ideas to which character I would have liked to portray but had to consider that I also needed the right clothes to look the part. So one afternoon I dug through my wardrobe and came across some interesting items. I decided to make a coordinate of a character I least expected to make. 

Can you guess?!
Yes I am none other than the beast from Beauty and the Beast. I really wanted to combine my newly won horns with my outfit and the colours of it suited my skirt just perfectly. Together with my vintage chiffon blouse the look was complete. Its a simple look but I love it. 

What do you think? Go or no go?

Outfit Run down:
Head piece: Atelier Dornröschen
Wig: Lockshop
Blouse: Vintage
Skirt: Hand-made
Tights: Off brand
Shoes: Off brand

The look was based on colours from the picture below. There are alot of maroons/crimsons, golds, creams and browns. Lovely colours to work with in my opinion. Also, the beast has blue eyes just like me.

It was a really fun topic to write about and it really motivated me to make more inspired like coordinates in the future.

If your interested in Disney coordinates from other LBC bloggers do see their posts below.

Bonus Picture!

Lolita Blog Carnival: My Dream Lolita Event/Meet-up

Here comes another LBC post for this week. This weeks topic was a dream Lolita event or meet-up. It was a very fun topic to write about seeing that I could unleash  my fantasies to the limit.

I like my events/meets big and detailed. I just love when there are many things to do, to see, to buy, people to meet etc. For instance last year I attended an event, Kawaii Weekend, where I met Misako and RinRin. That really was a dream come true and I cant think of anything right away that can top that. But if I was going to add to that event and make it even more pefect it would look something like this (just letting my imagination loose here).

It would be a weekend event held in October for Halloween. This also reflects on the theme of the event. The event would be held in a luxourious castle hotel. Abundant in lovely gardens filled with autumn trees. Every attendee would receive a room to stay in for the weekend (included in the price of course). I would leave on a Friday to get settled into my room and prepare for the following day. On the Friday everyone would get the chance to walk about the hotel and meet fellow Lolita's. There would be a lovely dinner buffet filled with delicious Japanese delicacies and an evening programe with fun things to do.

The next day everyone would be preparing for the a tea party held by Misako and other Lolita and Kawaii fashion idols. There would be a lovely buffet to eat from. This would be a mix of Japanese kawaii cuisine and French petit fours.
During the tea party people will have the chance to meet and talk to the Japanese idols and receive autographs. Everyone will also receive the opotunity to have a picuture taken of them and the Japanese idols.
There will be a presentation held by the local Lolita community too. They would present their country and how they make it Kawaii.
Then there would be a lovely lottery with lots and lots of wonderful prizes. You could win whole outfits to small accessory items. Plus everyone would also receive a small goodybag filled with little goodies. Then it would be group picture time and we would head outside to have it done by a great photographer.
After this everyone could choose to do what ever they wanted. There would be several workshops people could attend such as origami folding, bento making, jewelry making and photoshoots. In the evening there would be another lovely dinner buffet. This time in oriental style.

The next day would be a huge market with a bring and buy stall and other kawaii stalls selling accessoies, clothing, make-up, beauty products and other cute things.
Shows would be held. Some of which being music and dance shows held by none other than Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and AKB48.
Minori would give a Halloween make up demonstation and a lucky winner could win a photoshoot with her. She would be made up by Minori herself.
There would be several fashion shows by fashion brands like Baby the Stars Shine Bright, Angelic Pretty, Innocent world, Metamorphose and other indie brands.
There would of couse be another chance to win many prices from the lottery and an outfit contest. The winner of the outfit contest could win a two week guided tour in Tokyo, Japan. Kawaii and Lolita fashion idols would be your personal guides though all the different sections of the city.
At the end of the day a group picture would be made which will be sent to you per post and signed by all the Japanese idols. So that you may treasure this memory forever.

This kind of event would probably never be held unless someone expremely rich paid for all of this. But hey one can dream right? I was always taught to dream big. I might not reach that dream but I would be higher up than if I had dreamt small.
