Moi-Même-Moitié 2015 Luckypack

Friday, November 6, 2015

Hello everyone! It's been a while since my last post, things have been happening and I've been working really hard! All the hard work has slowly been paying off though :)

So on to the topic: Last October I ordered a Moitié luckypack, I saw the post on Lolita Updates go up that they just put the luckypacks on their website and of course this right when I was cooking! So I made the quick decision to bolt to my PC and let all the food burn. It was definitely worth it in the end, 10/10 would do it again. I got the 50,000 yen EGL pack.

I ordered directly, using Tenso. I got a lot of confirmation e-mails from Moitié so at first I was afraid that something had gone wrong, or that I should write them an e-mail or something, but it turned out a-ok and it was really easy to order! I stupidly chose SAL shipping from Tenso to me, which took about 3 weeks and didn't update so I was afraid that I would never see the package arrive. But it arrived and although the box was a bit beat up, the contents were all safe! So let's see what was inside:

I got 2 JSKs, the left is the Holy Angel Print JSK long version, and the right, and unnamed Jacquard JSK, the black "front" is detachable and so the dress can be worn on it's own like it is, or worn over another dress. I really adore the right JSK, but I won't be keeping the left one as I have nothing to match and I'm afraid of getting stains.

 Next we have an ivory, thick chiffon blouse and a dark grey with black bag. The blouse is very similar to one Alice and the Pirates blouse that I have, but the lace and quality is a lot nicer.

I really love the bag, I can't wait to use it! I was hoping for a nice Moitié bag, so this was a really nice surprise to get! It actually fits stuff too!

There were a lot of accessories in the pack too! I got a black x blue choker with a matching KC, but I really don't have anything in that color combination unfortunately. It also doesn't match the blue in the jacquard JSK, so I'll probably be looking to trade or sell them. In the top middle there's a rose ring in a dark blue that does match the jacquard JSK and so does the headbow in the middle! The bow is absolutely gorgeous and I'll definitely wear it with the dress. I'm really happy with it!

And on the right, is a pair of OTK socks in black, with velvet black ribbons. They're very thick and feel very sturdy. Socks are always good and I pretty much only wear plain ones, so they're perfect!

And of course, there was also some random stuff! Like a Divine Cross printed handkerchief, which I will use to dry my tears when I lose a burando auction. A choker necklace which is really pretty and I will definitely wear, with an almost matching phone charm. Close enough! I guess. Then there's also a keychain which will replace my current super ugly bright red felt Sparkasse keychain, a red lipstick that I don't trust, but according to a friend it's actually supposed to be really nice! And 2 fillings for something like a diary, which I've never seen before and what I absolutely have no use for.

A close up for the choker necklace and the almost matching phone charm.

In the end I was really happy with my pack, I pretty much got en entire wearable outfit (minus shoes and petticoat) and almost everything went really well together. I got items that I wouldn't have bought myself, but that I really like upon seeing them in real life, and once again I'm impressed by the quality of Moitié items. Next year I will definitely get a pack again (or two, or three!).

Remember the Kawaii.i competition I entered in half a year ago? I actually was one of the winners and I received a great prize! This time they have a new competition open and they even have a prize from Angelic Pretty! I would enter again if I didn't won last one because the prizes are so great!

The theme is dolly kawaii, so it's especially perfect for people that wear gothic lolita fashion! Are you going to enter?

Lolita OOTD + Transformation Video - Pirate Princess

Thursday, July 2, 2015

This is kind of a reboot of the outfit that I wore during La Vie en Rose, I really liked it and thought I could make some small changes to it. Unfortunately I don't have any proper pictures of my outfit there, however I have pictures now!

The idea of my look was Lolita Pirate Princess, a badass chick that kidnaps innocent maidens and plunders.. well, everything - while looking pretty awesome. Is it strange that I made a whole story for one outfit?

I made a short transformation video to go with the pictures, it's sped up so much my hands are a blur most of the time. Don't worry, my hands aren't really that blurry. My real eyebrows are terrible though, but that's a topic for another time.

I'm still trying to figure out my set-up for videos in my work room. I got 2 daylight umbrellas, but somehow my room is still a black hole that absorbs light. I might just get some kind of lighter colored curtains on a rail to hang from the ceiling so that I got at least the dark blob that is my closet in the background covered. The struggle of liking dark furniture is real... oh and the struggle of German houses with tiny windows is real too.

By the way, I entered the Kawaii.i contest with this look, so if you like it and would like to support me you can vote for me with these links:

Enough with the chit-chat, on to the pics!

My goal for the make-up was something more androgynous, despite having a girly
touch to it. I don't have any make-up for contouring, so I decided to keep it relatively
simple and focus a bit more on the brows. I went with a peach tone blush, instead
of the normal pink tone I take. The tears are to reflect the tears in the Grimoire
hair clip.

Jacket: Alice and the Pirates
JSK: Alice and the Pirates
Jabot/Scarf: Alice Auaa
Socks: Angelic Pretty

Lolita OOTD - Innocent World x Flowers + Video [non lolita]!

Friday, May 15, 2015

Still no wallpaper unfortunately, but I have another outfit I wore yesterday!
This dress has been hanging in my closet for a while now, I didn't wear it before because it's a wrinklemonster. It's bad. I steamed it twice and it's still wrinkly. But I might just have to get over it, because it does have a lovely silhouette! I also thought that it was a bit boring, so I made a flower brooch and clipped 2 matching flowers to the "drape" of the skirt.

Oh yeah! No heels! The reason why I wore heelless shoes is not because they're super comfy (which they really are!), but because they have flowers on them! I should've taken a close up, because it matched perfectly :)

Lolita OOTD - Library Dress

Sunday, March 22, 2015

Another absence, I'm really not writing here as often as I'd like, but this time I have a good reason!
I moved to a new apartment again and it took a bit to get settled. Half is still in boxes and it all looks
like a mess, but it feels good enough to take time for pictures again!

I hope to have the wallpaper that I ordered up on this wall soon and maybe I can get or make some decorations to pretty it up a little!

So today I filmed another youtube video and decided to dress it up just a little bit, so this is more of a toned down lolita outfit. Of course I just use this as an excuse because I have trouble trying to coordinate this absolutely beautiful dress.

Oh in a little more than a week I'm off to the US again! I'm going to be at Anime Matsuri with Lockshop Wigs and there will be a lot of beautiful wigs for sale there! Please pop by and say hi! We're at booth #730 in the exhibitors hall and there should be a LOT of brand spanking new wigs
that are at the fashion show! So excited, I can't wait :D

Lolita OOTD - Holiday Red

Saturday, December 13, 2014

Oh - instead of winter blues I'm suffering from the holiday red. And no, it's not period related.
Actually, just kidding, I don't really care about holidays at all, but this outfit did kind of turn out festive for being an outfit of mine!

There are a lot of dresses in my closet that I've never worn, partially because I feel like the rest of my closet doesn't suit it, and today I made an outfit with one of those dresses. It feels like it could be a bit more balanced, but I don't have a lot of colors to play with so I did my best :) I kind of want a cute beret to go with this dress!

Okay maybe I've got a bit the winter blues...

And I definitely need more lolita shoes! But it's been quite difficult to find suitable shoes, that are not only pretty, but also nice quality, comfortable and affordable. I had custom orders from Antainna a couple times before, but they always kind of disappoint. Even if you get them to make the shoes in leather, the designs feel kind of off. But we'll see what the future brings, maybe a new shoe brand? ;)

The wig is a sample wig, soon to appear on my wig shop Lockshop Wigs, it's from the Pure line, which is more natural and very suitable for daily wear. When I got it, I first wasn't sure about the style, but there is a very limited amount of cute shorter wigs and most of this length are simple bobs. The waves in this kind of give it a less polished and more playful feel, making it 100% less boring too! I can't wait to stock it :3

Outfit Rundown:
JSK: Angelic Pretty (isn't it gorgeous?! I want it in red too!)
Blouse: HMHM
Cardigan: Chess Story
Jewllery: Tokimeki Gabriel & Offbrand
Wig: Lockshop Wigs (arriving soon!)
