Pacific Media Expo 2014: Sunday ~ Fashion Show

I had the privilege of modeling in the PMX Fashion Show again this year, this time for Alice and the Pirates. It was basically a dream come true being able to model my very favorite brand, and getting to dress up as a pirate no less!

My wonderful husband got tons of great pictures of everyone on the runway, so it's thanks to him that I can share all of these with you. This is a very picture-heavy post; you have been warned, but I hope you forge ahead anyway!

Pacific Media Expo 2014: Saturday

This last weekend was Pacific Media Expo, the fashion-forward Japanese pop culture convention of Southern California, and it was tons of fun! The ladies in the fashion department outdid themselves again this year with the tea party, and we all spent a lot of time just socializing in the boutique.

October Coordinates

October means Halloween, and Halloween means themed coordinates, right? I had a couple of opportunities to dress up this month, and definitely had fun taking advantage of the ability to do themes and get a little more costume-y than usual.

Read on for three outfits and their breakdowns~

Sewing Project: Melisandre from Game of Thrones

For Halloween this year, I wanted to do something that was fairly mainstream, but still relevant to my interests, and still a legitimate cosplay. So I took the plunge and did my first television cosplay--Melisandre from Game of Thrones!

More pictures and construction notes under the cut.

Bodyline Shoe Haul & Review

Bodyline recently had a sale on shoes, and for a few weeks of the sale they also offered free shipping! I took that opportunity to stock up on some new shoes to replace worn out ones, and also to add some more variety to my wardrobe. I spent just under $100~ for five pairs! Read on for a mini review.

Sewing Project: Halloween Damask Underbust JSK

Hello everyone, I'm finally back and busy after an amazing vacation. I've had the sewing itch for the last few days, so I got started on a few different projects, and finished one today! I fell in love with the fabric when I ordering a for a commission a while ago, and I'm so glad that I got it.

This time, the design was inspired by Innocent World, since I love what they do with overall printed pieces. I'm planning to wear it to Disneyland in a few weeks as part of a Nightmare Before Christmas coordinate, but until then, here are some more pictures and construction notes~

Sewing Project: Cranberry Shantung A-line JSK and matching bonnet

I've had four yards of beautiful dark red poly-blend shantung hanging out in my sewing box for months now, and while I had an idea of what I wanted to do with it before, it wasn't until the long holiday weekend that I actually managed to get off my butt and do something with it!

I ended up making an a-line Classic jumperskirt and a matching bonnet! It was my first time making both of those things, so it was a lot of fun trying some new stuff (especially the bonnet!). I also had a chance to wear all the new things to a meetup this weekend.
