Good to be Gnome

Hey, Mr. Blog~
I've been a busy mofo! But my good friend Kat is going to keep me on the blogging ball and give me a challenge each Friday to fulfill so that I'm no longer neglecting you. (Joke's on her, It's technically Sunday so I'm already late the first week!)

My challenge this week was to dress up in the new dress I made and show off my crafty prowess. But I didn't have time for that, Mr. Blog! So here is a nice snap shot of the new addition to my gaudy and so bright closet.

Impressed? I am as well! This is probably the best thing I have ever sewn in my entire life. The amount of detail and effort I put into it was almost migraine inducing. But it was so worth it, I love this dress~ Now to actually make it into a workable outfit.

I have a small confession, Mr. Blog. I don't think the full on commitment to Lolita fashion is going to happen in my life. I like too many gaudy and ugly articles of clothing that most in the community find "ita". I just cannot help it. I'm not talking about cat ears and lace monsters. I mean hot pink leopard print and fake leather brand dresses. I'm probably hopeless, but I'll have fun trying things. Hueh hueh hueh.

So what has been eating up all my time recently, you ask? PREPARING FOR NEBRASKON 2014!!! I have three costumes, four if I have time and feel frisky, to complete in the time span of a month. Both of the little ones want to cosplay My Little Pony characters. Lu demands to be Fluffle Puff, technically a fan created pony that has become popular on YouTube, and Ray wants to be Twilight Sparkle. Actually, my two sons wanting to be girl ponies had brought up quite a bit of controversy in my life this post month! But I'm saving that for another "Friday" so I may rant about that in depth.

Behold, below is my progress on Fluffle Puff! You have no idea how many times I've been stabbed with the felting needles already. Grr.


For myself I have decided to finally go for the gusto and cosplay Onion Knight from Final Fantasy Tactics. I've wanted to do this forever but could never work up the guts to dive into it. Wish me luck! And if I have time left, (who am I kidding, we know that's not going to happen), I'll be making a gijinka cosplay of the Pokemon Banette, one of my favourites.

I leave you with some snap shots from my week for entertainment. Toodles~

Outfit yesterday~

Lego Pony Island, ruled by King Batman. He is just and fair, so the ponies say.

It's All Good

Hello hello, Mr. Blog~
I've been receiving many messages for a while now about something I feel a tad conflicted about. I was posted to an ita thread a while back and many people who care for me have stirred up a budding nest of anger about it all. While I have had mixed emotions about the whole spiel I have pretty much told them all to just live and let live.

Personally, I was sad and had that knee jerk reaction that I'm sure many people have when they see pictures making fun of them online. It lasted a good five minutes accompanied by teary eyes and all. But it's okay, really. These things happen. The internet is not a place of rainbows and sunshine and I know this. Everyone has their opinions on others and what people say won't bring me any harm. I love everyone out there that was up in arms but in reality I'm alright with being posted there.

I'm new to all of this. Not so much following Lolita fashion, but participating. And I'm unsure if it is how everyone experienced it but wearing and staring at photos is entirely two different things, in my opinion. I'm going to make mistakes. Couple looking like a hot mess with me being fat and I'm sure there will be many laughs had by all. But I'm working hard at improving and I am taking everything said into consideration. If someone cannot take criticism then how will they get better?

And I have been working hard on the fat part as well. I know I'm so wishy washy with weight loss on here but I've actually lost more that forty pounds since January and I am so happy with myself. I cried when my friend Kat let me try on some clothes and they fit. I was so very happy since I cannot seem to see the change in myself. I always look fat, so that's all I see. And I'm still fat, unfortunately, but I'm working very hard on it. I'm not a Lolita yet, Mr. Blog. 

But someday I would like to be~ <3

So I hope my friends can not be so upset when they see me being made fun of online. I truly don't mind. Harsh criticism is how I'll get better. And I want to very much so! The things take time I suppose. I don't even care if I become a well known Lolita. I'm good with just blending in with the sea of frills.

And my ita-y self in all its glory. Wish me luck with the next try.

Hugh Jackman's Butt

Becuase I got to see the new X-Men movie tonight, I can now die saying I got to see that glorious bum in 3D. Which will probably be as close as I will ever get. Hur hur hur. I never remember to take cute photos of my outfits, I am trying to do better with this. photo 257_zps45ae936e.gif

And a few other photos from my phone that I felt warranted some attention~

Creeper Birthday cake, the sticks were to keep the lid from crushing e3verything but I am super happy they were there too keep Creeper from falling over during transport!

My newest ugly Goodwill find. It was only $1. And it's totally me.

Sneaking photos of Captain while he ain't looking during his workout. Hee hee~ photo 186_zpsbbab85f5.gif

Gotta Catch'em All #001

Hidey ho, Mr. Blog~ 

Just a few photos to show you what I have been up to. First, I have been doing strange things to my kitchen. Since I live on the third floor of an apartment complex I kind of have lawn envy so my kitchen has this "indoor yard" thing going on, complete with cheap yard flamingos and garden gnomes. This is my progress on that idea. 

Secondly, I have set myself a little challenge. I want to try and make a lunch box for each pokemon. We shall see how well I do! I'm going in numerical order from the national PokeDex so my first is one of my favourites, BULBASAUR~~~

And I leave you with a Hello Kitty plush I'm stalking at the grocery. I want to win it but I am horrid at crane games. ;_;
