Fall movie preview

Fall into early Winter is the absolute best time to be a film fan. This is the time of year when all the the Oscar contender films start being released. So far two films have caught my attention.

Black Swan

The newest film by director Darren Aronofsky (Requiem For A Dream and The Wrestler). The film features some of my favorite actors, Vincent Cassel and Natalie Portman. I'm horrible at describing films, so I'm going to let wikipedia do the talking
"he film stars Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis as ballet dancers in a New York City production of Swan Lake. The production requires a ballerina to play both the innocent White Swan and the sensual Black Swan. Nina (Portman) fits for the White Swan and Lily (Kunis) fits for the Black Swan. When the two compete for the parts, Nina finds a dark side of herself."

Never Let Me Go

Directed by Mark Romanek(who is a well known music video director, directing the Johnny Cash video for "Hurt" and the Nine Inch Nails video "Closer"). Just watching the trailer gives me the feeling that this film is going to DESTROY me. But in a good, I don't usually cry during films. But when a film can cause such an emotional reaction out of me, it sticks. The last film that effected me in such an emotional way was "Grave Of The Fireflies."

What films are you excited to see this coming Fall/Early Winter?

My new skirt from Korean brand Baroque came in the mail this morning. I'm so in love with it!

the matching head bow it came with

a bow in the mint version of the print. This came as to a surprise to me, I wasn't expecting it :D

I also got a few extra little gifts

The postcard that came with my order

Print details

lining and built in petti

I love this skirt so much! I have never had a lolita skirt that fit me so well, and was very flattering. I look forward to future releases from Baroque.

outfit prep for comic con

Since NYCC is just over 2 months away, I have to start planning my outfits for the con. For one day I want to wear something over the top like the outfit above. The other two days are probably going to consist of normal clothes and cosplay.

I'm taking the opportunity to dress as insane as I can. Plus later on that month I'm going to wear the same dress but to a formal event. Which should be a good lolita vs lolita at a formal event entry.

Metamophose lucky pack contents

My lucky pack from Metamorphose came in the mail this morning :D! I ordered one of the dark colored lucky packs, since I can live with getting any of those colors. Mean while if I got pink or white from the light colored ones I would've been upset and sold all of it. I'm very pleased to see that I got a bordeaux colored pack. Now the contents:

NYCC costume plan

So this year a friend and I decided that we wanted to make costumes for this year's New York Comic Con. Initially I was going to go as Log Lady from "Twin Peaks" while my friend goes as Green Man from "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia." Those plans fell out, so we came up with another idea, go as Daft Punk. As of right now, I'm in charge of making a Thomas Bangalter. So this blog will probably see a few posts about how my helmet and the rest of my costume is going.

But for now, these are the materials I'm using as inspiration for my costume.

inspiration from viral videos


We may have gotten off on the wrong foot. I love it when you aren't covered in mud doing the nasty with trees and killing dogs. But to be honest, your first six videos scared the fuck out of me. But I find a good portion of your latest six videos to be inspiring in every aspect of them.
Stills from T

Stills from O

Videos T and O

It's pretty clear that it's Jonna Lee. I can't wait to see how this project fully develops. What are your thoughts on this particular mysterious viral campaign?

oh blog how I have neglected you

Again, I have successfully neglected this little blog of mine. Partially because I took a little break from lolita to focus on other things. So I'm crossing my fingers that I can get this up and running.

There is quite a few things coming my way in terms of lolita. Like lucky packs, custom blouses, and my first piece from Baroque. So all of those will get their own review post.

So stay tuned because I haven't forgotten about this blog.

Three games that stole my heart at E3

For the past two days, I've been glued to the tv and constantly refreshing video game websites. All for news about what my favorite video game companies are coming out with. Here are my top 3 games that were shown off at e3.

this game seems so over the top ala Borderlands, it's hard not to love it.

Kirby's Epic Yarn
Kirby will forever be a childhood favorite of mine. So seeing a new Kirby game always excites me.

Twisted Metal
Another game I have very fond memories of. Glad to see it's back.

As for big company conferences, I think Nintendo came out on top. They pulled out more crowd pleasers and surprises than the other two companies, and I say this as a proud Sony fan girl.

E3:What I'm excited to see.

Next week is one of the(if not the biggest) video game convention/show of the year, E3. Every year my brother and I commit to sitting and watching all the major conferences on G4.

Here are the following games I'm looking forward to seeing next week.

The Another World
Studio Ghibli's collaboration with developers Level 5(Professor Layton developers). I have been seeing coverage for this game for the past two years, and I need it now! So I'm crossing my fingers that this game somehow makes it to E3(or I'll wait for Tokyo Game Show in September)

Marvel vs. Capcom 3
Hulk vs Chris Redfield WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED!?!

LittleBigPlanet 2
One of my favorite games from 2008 is back!


Casltevania:Lords of Shadow

The Last Guardian
The highlight from Sony's conference last year

Final Fantasy Versus 13

For complete E3 coverage, check and refresh one of my favorite video game websites. Throughout E3, make sure to check my twitter for my reactions and commentary on the major press conferences.

So for all of you video game players, what are you looking forward to seeing at E3?

milky hot mess

(uploaded from tumblr. I don't know exactly who scanned it. But if you know please tell me so I can give them credit.)

What is this!?!
This print is as if I took everything I jokingly said "Oh yeah I would wear it and rock the shit out of it" and threw it on a dress. Ice cream castles and all. Plus it looks like Meta's Sweet Park.

summer music post

This is the time of year is the Christmas to music lovers. New albums come out, along with summer tours. This is my favorite time of year for a music lover/concert fanatic. Some of my favorite musicians are coming out/came out with music.

M.I.A-album release date: June 29th

single "Born Free"
M.I.A is one of my favs. I've seen her twice in concert, and both times were amazing in their own special ways. Her albums "Arular" and "Kala" are in constant rotation on my itunes.

But her new single "Born Free" is different, which is what Diplo said of her new record in numerous interviews about this album. I'm not a huge fan of this song in particular. I don't think it's as creative as M.I.A can get, c'mon.....taking an entire song by Suicide and just singing over it? Now that's cheat.

I happen to like the song she put out via twitter a few months ago:

If this were an album by someone I never heard of, and just hearing "Born Free", I would shut it off and delete it.

Robyn-album release: June
This woman takes her sweet ass time making albums. It's been 5 years since her self-titled album. She's releasing three mini albums called "Body Talk", each being released when one set of songs is completed. The first of them leaked a few days ago. so me being impatient, I downloaded it as soon as possible. And I love it. Out of the eight songs, there is only one I don't like. Apart from that one song, this album is fantastic.

I can't wait for her to shimmy herself to New York and play a show :D

Other bands I love coming out with new material
LCD Soundsystem

Crystal Castles

Crystal Castles - Empathy from Jef Deng on Vimeo.

Taobaonow review

Wooooooow I didn't realize that I haven't updated in a long time. Between school and work, I haven't had much time to do anything. I just declared my major, art history, so I'll be even more backed up come next semester. I'm crossing my fingers that I get into the museum training course, since that's what I'm planning on transferring out of my school now to do.

Anyway, but custom fitted Kidsyoyo blouse came in from Taobaonow a few days. I couldn't be happier with what I go, and with Taobaonow's service. This review will be for Taobaonow's shopping service, one for the blouse itself will come later when I can take detailed pictures.

10% can't go wrong with that. Certainly better than the price jump that Qcute lists.
Ease of ordering:5/5 Everything is explained on their website. You put your order into an order form on their website, instead of being email based. Which I liked.
Communication:4/5 It takes a few days to get back to you. But when they do, whoever gets back to you answers any of your questions in a very polite manner. I had tons since this is the first time I have used someone other than Qcute or Mashimaro Girl(with whom I'm still waiting on an order I placed in January) to order something.
Custom sizing:5/5 They asked for VERY specific measurements. This is the most specific a shopping service has asked of me when I asked for something custom.
Shipping:4/5 Took a few days slower than EMS normally takes. They give you the option of having your item shipped through airmal or ems, but the price difference isn't much(maybe $4). So you're better off using ems.
Overall:5/5 I'm going to use them as my taobao shopping service from now on.

(80) 学校・職場などにロリィタで行っていますか?(have you gone to School or Work in lolita?)

(81) 普段の服装の系統は?(How do you dress normally?)
I'm all over the place. I had someone once describe my style as David Byrne as a female who is a classy hipster.

We break away from our regularly scheduled programming

To talk about the newly released video by French studio Quantic Dream, Heavy Rain:

This game has been shown around game conventions for the past three or four years, and it finally came out this past Tuesday. It's the most visually stunning game I've ever seen, even for a game with a darker color scheme than most games. Usually when a game is in development for that long, it's a bad sign(::cough:: too human and probably final fantasy 13 ::cough::), but this game is the exception. The game sucks you in, and leaves you wanting to play more of it even when you're not playing it. When I'm done with it I'll post a full review.

Thursday, February 18, 2010


Saturday is going to be a very exciting day for NYC area lolitas! Lolita model Misako Aoki is going to be making an appearence at local J-fashion store, Tokyo Rebel. AND I AM SHITTING BRICKS! HOOOOO FFFFUCK! In order to attend this event, you had to email Tokyo Rebel after 1pm. Now, I have years of experience buying tickets for concerts that sell out instantly. So I was amped to see how fast I could get my email in, and what number I got. I prepared the email around 12:50, and exactly at 1 I pressed send(it also helps that I was in class at the time, and had my blackberry with me). When Tokyo Rebel replied, I was expecting to be number 10 or something. But no, NUMBER 1! Fyeah lolita mission accomplished.

Now, what to wear!

art project/inspiration:rubies and ballet

In Apring I will be taking part in the NYC Lolita Storybook photoshoot. This year's theme is ballets, and my character is Ruby from the abstract ballet "Jewels." For my outfit, I'm taking the abstract thing and running with it. I just need to pick out an appropriate dress for it(since I was itching to buy a red dress anyway might as well.)

I love the way the Kidsyoyo dress looks in sunglight, but I'll probably never wear it again. I already love the BTSSB one. The Anna house ones are ok to me.

For make-up, I'm using Bjork as an inspiration:

Just not as covered.

I want to get a pair of thigh highs and decorate them with jewels. Plus I want to make a neck piece that is COVERED in red shiny things.

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

I don't get it

Really lolita's? We're shitting ourselves now over a print of JEWEL JELLY!?! Really? Have we run out of cutesy things to throw on dresses? I really don't see the appeal of this line. The print is hard to see, the jsk cuts are ugly, and of course jelly. But knowing die hard APers, this'll sell out right away and go for massive amounts of money on the auctions.
