Recent Purchases, Makings, and International Lolita Day ♡

Just a short post…
With things on my mind lately!

This is a hair clip I recently made!
I also made the chain.
I hope to use this technique to make a necklace soon.. but I’m sooooo lazy and impatient. :aseru:

I recently bought these 2 purses below!
I purchased them both on mbok, which is a Japanese auction site.
You can find maaaaaany cute things there for inexpensive!

I’m so happy because the condition is also like new!

Can you tell I have an obsession with book bags?
Hahaha..

A recent selfie from International Lolita Day!
It was June 7th :heart:
I went to the Leprachaun Musuem with a couple of other lolitas and we had a picnic!   :bear:
Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures!   :aseru:

a. recently purchased a lighting set so these are some test pictures from it!
Hahaha,  I think it’s still not bright enough, but I also used it for taking pictures of the purses. I think it’s very good for that!
We will have to buy some flashes.. to make me look better, haha.

Thanks for reading!

    OMG I can’t believe that you made that hair clip alone.. you have amazing gift :bear:
    And that chain is so cute that it shouldn’t even exist :wink:

      Hahaha Thanks so much.
      I learned how to make the chain at home, it’s really easy!
      This is a good video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A32u_jnrpac
      The only problem is you need some tools..

      I’m going to try to make this necklace next – it just requires needles and correct thread. Maybe you could try something like this?

    You have so much more patience than I do, Berry! And artistic sense. I look forward to seeing how the bead necklace turns out~

      I totally don’t have patience…
      I don’t have patience for that chain! Hahaha all I feel like doing is a few chains per day… It will take me a year to finish this necklace at this rate, haha. But thanks a lot for the compliment.

    You look absolutely adorable!!! And those book bags are really lovely too.
    I’d love to see how the necklace turned out. I’m not very good at crafting things so it’s always nice to see someone else make them. :P

      Thanks a lot!
      I’m totally not good at crafting either… I think the key is using a way to hide the “homemade”-ness of it hahaha.

    The hair clip is sooo pretty! This chain is very easy and quick to make if you have pieces of wire with uniform length and he eyelet on one side pre-prepared alreay, do you have those?

    The book bags are totally adorable! How much were they? I always thought they were reaally expensive, is it a lot cheaper second hand? The museum must have been fun, I never got the chance to go before leaving Dublin (I’m now living in Seoul).

      I don’t know how I missed this message D: I hope all is well with you!

      The book bags.. the Innocent World one cost around 10,000 yen so it’s a bit expensive if you consider that it is made from pleather. The Axes Femme book bag was around 2000 yen, but it’s made from real leather! So it’s not so bad at all.

      I’m so jealous that you are living Seoul!

    You got such a great haul ! It’s lovely. I never really give much attention to IW (except for those sailor dresses that are wonderful) but that makes me reconsider. I’m ashamed but I am in love with the nightgown JSK. Must find it somewhere now !

    Also I wish you all the best for the next stage of your interview ! How do you do to manage job and studies and then another job maybe ? It’s very impressive, you are a hard-working person !

      Hahaha, I think I undersold the nightgown JSK. It sold in less than 12 hours. I did not realise it’s true value, apparently! I hope you find it!

      I don’t manage all those things very well. To be honest, I’m constantly in panic mode and don’t go out with friends during this times D: But thanks a lot for the compliment!
