Earth is the color of my skin

I have a new outfit photoset for you guys. I went to one of the local anime convention yesterday and unfortunately, I didn't enjoy half of it if it weren't because of my friends being there. The hall was so small and because many cosplayers and com-goers came, it became really hot. This is what I wore which I decided to shoot today instead.

Kisses always follows me around when we shoot. We try to shoo her away but for some reason, her photobombing always come out lovely and funny.

She's copying my pose on the right photo! XD

This look is inspired by the dolly kei style. It looks lolita with the silhouette and the bow though but I'm looking forward to coordinate a cool dolly outfit in the future.

I love this dress from Labyrinth Garden~

Beneath The Encasing Of Ashes

Playing around with my new-found style. It's totally out of a whim, actually, but inspired by many styles I adore like cult-party kei and aomoji kei. I find myself dabbling in the mori kei and dolly kei waters too sometimes.

My recent looks are actually more toned down compared to my frilly lolita days but it's odd that with the rise of cosplay and kpop in the Philippine air, I can say that the attention I am receiving makes me uncomfortable. I don't know if it's just me or people nowadays are more vocal and care less if they are already being rude. If you are from the Philippines, those Vice Ganda jokes could be funny, yes, but not always.. especially if you're pulling it on a total stranger. orz

My dog likes to be photographed. haha!

The weather is getting cooler. yay! It means dressing up time!

I love how make up and this wig can change the shape of my face. XD It looks rounder here.

Pigged out with Joeyn later that night. Here's an  obligatory photo of the yummy burger. Now I'm starving.

Christmas haul

Just want to share with you the things I received this Christmas. Not much, really, but I treasure each and every one of them since they came from people I adore.

If you read my previous post, you must be familiar with these shoes. Joeyn, my bf, got it for me as a present.

The next two items are bought by me as a treat for myself. This kind of bag is popular right now and usually, I don't follow what's popular but when I saw this.. with that scallops, polkadots, and the color combo, it was just love at first sight. <3

The stag necklace reminds me so much of Game of Thrones - the very reason why I bought it. I'm more of a House of Targaryen type though (Hello, GoT fans out there!) but this is lovely. The bird reminds me so much of the mocking jay in Hunger Games. I feel such a geek at this point now, haha. The potion charm with a cross was just too cute I decided to get it too.

Presents I got from my Aunt who just came home from Orange County. I love the artbooks and this book. haha.

Gel Liner and Brow pot by CLIO as a present from my brother. I used it immediately when I got it and I'm happy with the results. I might check out this brand more often..

So that's it. I hope everyone is having a great holiday season right now. Happy Holidays!

During the yuletide comes the wolf-girl

I spent half of my Christmas eve with my boyfriend's family. I loathe the travel so much.. it's too tiring and since we had to pass through a somewhat depressed site on the way, we can't avoid impolite people. orz

His family are not Catholics so they don't really have "Noche Buena". They prefer to keep it humble and spend the season by getting together.

They like pets a lot. They have four dogs and a cat as of the moment-- excluding the several ones I have met that already passed away.

Here is Joeyn wrestling Bench, their Shih Tzu. We missed him!

I wore something cult party kei inspired. I kept the layering minimal for this because as I have said, the travel was hell. I wish I had time to curl my hair though.

Love the stag necklace I just bought the previous day.

Joeyn bought me these shoes as a Christmas present. Love it!

Their dogs are always such sweethearts. They kept on glomping me the whole time. haha!

Yaay! haha.

Their new cat. He doesn't have a name yet. I call him, Jaguar. XD

He is one ball of energy! He kept on running around and pouncing on things like crazy. haha. So cute!

The latter part of the day was spent with my family. We are still having financial issues due to my mom's passing even though it's already been a year so we kept it simple and focused on the exchange of gifts instead. Sucks I don't have any pictures to share-- I forgot, as always. orz

Looking forward for the New Year!

A good friend is cheaper than therapy

Last Saturday, I get to have an alone time together with my girls as our pre-Christmas date at Cubao X. Also, I've been wanting to go back from my visit a week ago because of the flea market they are having. Apparently  I realized they had different sets of sellers every week so I don't get to check again the merchandise I am eye-ing from the last time, boo!

Turns out that it's also their last day that day. I wish they have it all-year round though. I would definitely be a regular if that's the case, haha!

Lots of hand-crafted goods! I love them. <3

I fell in love with those cameo necklaces. I wish I had enough cash that time I would've gotten a pair. I made sure to have a connection with the seller so I can still buy in the future.



I think Kleng is my lookbook buddy now. XD

I still get reactions about me not wearing lolita anymore. I think I'm slowly finding my new style. I would definitely wear lolita every now and then though.. I just can't wear it everyday though because I came to this realization that it's not anymore working with my current lifestyle. I hope my readers would still warmly receive me and my new style. ^w^

We had booze, delicious food and lots of lively chatter that night I definitely want more! I honestly think they will be the last set of girlfriends I will ever have. Must go contact them now for another get-together. Haha!

And by the way, Merry Christmas to everyone! I hope all of you are having a good time this time of the year. Cheers!
