cross ring


i made this ring the other day, out of an old wooden cross pendant and craft wire. i have loads of new photo-shoot ideas, all of which involve a halfway decent camera, which unfortunately, i do not have. this photo was taken with my phone, so excuse the poor picture quality.

cosmic love



i'm an extremely lazy bum. i haven't posted in weeks, and this^^, my friends, is a very sad excuse of a blog post. i apologise, but i've been so preoccupied with doing nothing, that i haven't got around to actually accomplishing ANYTHING productive. i need some "5-hour energy" XD.

chanel cassette clutch

the original.

i had some time yesterday to start a few DIY's. this one in particular was made using a plastic cassette tape case, sharpie, sticker letters, a chain bracelet, and a bit of glue. the original is about 3 times the size, and alot bulkier, so our DIY is mini-size (:

weird fishes



i want to be wearing this...right now.
i've been getting into my "Harry Potter obsessive mode" as of late, because in about 4 BLOODY WEEKS i will be walking through the gates of Universal Studios, which holds the many wonders of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park!!!!!teeheee. i am currently knitting myself a Gryffindor-themed sweater for the occasion, even though i definitely won't be wearing it to Universal Studios because its like Dante's Inferno there in the summers.
and yes, i'm a slytherin.

a ghostly galleon



i love henna. i've been spending the last 2 hours drawing on myself using sharpies. FAKER. but i don't have the right tools to do it legit, so i'm improvising. my "henna" designs don't even SLIGHTLY compare with these, so i am definitely not posting pictures. but you can ooh and aah over these rad hennas. if you are a henna pro, just send me a picture, i would love to see your designs :)

This is great. Just you, me, and this brick wall you built between us.



NEW MAXI DRESS, MON! leaping lizards, i'm excited. you want to know how much it cost??
2
flipping
dollars
I'm not supposed to be within two hundred feet of a school... or a Chuck E. Cheese.

I'm tired of chasing my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're going and hook up with them later.




my new purple leggings are fo shiz. i'm kinda agreeing with that whole "leggings aren't pants" movement, so i'm wearing cutoffs. lately, i've been subconsciously attaching safety pins to all my cutoffs before i go out of the house. this is getting kinda weird. i have safety pins all over my home, and i'll just randomly find them attached to all my clothes.
they have a mind of their own.
On another note, I BLOODY HATE MOSQUITOES! they're everywhere. they're affecting my subconscious mind. i've been having terrifying nightmares about swarms of mosquitoes coming into my house and eating me.
i'm going mad. absolutely mad.

Mad Hatter:"Am i going mad?"
Alice: "Yes, you're mad, bonkers, off your head. But i'll tell you a secret... All the best people are."

hypothetical high five



>new DIY's; rock ring and stud bracelet.

i've had a rockin week so far. I'm really psyched because i'm travelling to Brussels, Belgium with my family on Sunday!! i've already mapped out all the flea markets, thrift stores, malls, antique stores, etc. AND my mom just joined this website called "Couch Surfers", and you can request to stay with a random person in almost any country on Earth for FREE. so of course, my mom has decided that we are going to be shacking up with a random family in Brussels for 5 days. this should be fun.

PETA, come and get me








extremely eventful weekend :)
went to tallinn for a dance competition with anni. we went thrift/antique shopping, and i found my dream bag! its actually an old camera bag, but still, very cool. i've also attached a foxtail onto it, that i got at the same market. feeling extremely cruel, because i'm pretty sure its real fur. and i also picked up some cheeeeeeeaaaaap glasses for my upcoming DIY projects (Lady GAGA-style)
also went to SUSHICAT and had some amazing tuna rolls. i was even nerdy enough to buy a souvenir (cat ears)

popelectric, DIY safety pin dress



ok, so here it is. the beginnings of my safety pin dress. i just wanted to post some spiffy outfit posts to show you how its going. i've stabbed myself so many times in the fingers with safety pins this week. i hope it was worth it. the design of my dress will most likely change within the week, i still have so many safety pins left, and no projects to use them.

mr.tickles.



today,
was magnificent.
i finally finished my studded converses, AND spring finally decided to honour us with its presence. i didn't even have to wear a jacket! i already have a week's worth of spring outfits lined up.
i went to the Moeke2010 (fashion contest). the older designer category was impressive. alot of goth. and screamo runway music.ehhhh.
and,
i took some random lookbook photos in the street(i always hate doing that, because people look at you funny, either because they think you're beautiful and charming, and you're looks have just blown them away, OR they think you are extremely self centered, having your picture taken a bajillion times and posing like an effing retard *model pose*....probably the latter)
ok,
the converses,
were so easy to make. i bought a crappy studded belt, with the easily removable studs, and yes, i put them on my converses, in a delightful checker pattern ;)
mine are the red ones in the above photos. i was inspired to make them when i saw the blue ones on "stockholm street style".

cattwoman





i had a splendid day, my dolls. kiho(the ginger pictured above) and i had a major photoshoot. very interesting. she had this insanely "brilliant" idea to wrap bags around our socks and walk in the snow and mud. and, these photos display the outcome. freezing feet, haha :)
the bottom photo is a look i just put on lookbook. if you could "hype" it, i'll love you forever. the link to my lookbook is in the sidebar (Stalk Me section)---->

i have this obsession with crazy shoes...so yeah, that's why i'm posting pictures of hairy looking things on this girl's feet. pretty wild, mon.
i also love the other shoes. the brown flats, with the fur cuffs. they are so dainty and adorable. i would wear them, definitely. maybe not the hairy ones though. i'll leave that to the more fashionably confident. i would feel like a sasquatch.
