Oz Asia Festival 2015

Oz Asia Festival 2015

oz-asia-festival-2015

I have never been to the Oz Asia Festival before, so when the Adelaide lolita community was invited to put on a parade, I was quite keen to be a part of it. We were supposed to be doing a parade on both the Saturday and Sunday, but I only Attended the Saturday.

I wore my Cotton Candy Shop JSK, as dispite my initial reaction to it when I received it, it has fast become one of my favourite prints. It was a ridiculously hot day so instead of the matching OTK’s, I decided to go with some cute little ankle socks lest I die of heat exhaustion. Of course I brought along my lovely pink parasol, which was originally supposed to just be for show for the sake of the parade, but I actually ended up getting quite a lot of use out of it to keep the sun off.

The Oz Asia festival had set up this lovely Japanese inspired stage which they used to put on shows of different things relating to Japanese culture throughout the day. They had a few different drumming and martial arts presentations before they had our little lolita parade.

Everyone looked so beautiful all dolled up for the parade.

Once it was all done, we wandered around and had a look through all the different places. They had a “Passport” you could get stamped when you went into each different country’s area.

When we went to China, I found this place that sold these weird “J” shaped code things that got filled with ice cream, that happened to be gluten free! I just had to try one. One of my friends mentioned that the end of it looked like a butt hole, so we spent the rest of the day giggling about it.

It was pretty darn tasty though, and being so hot it was nice to have some thing to cool me down.

I really hope we get asked back again next year a I had such a great time!

Kawaii International Kawaii Leaders Dolly Competition

Kawaii International Kawaii Leaders Dolly Competition

kawaii-international-dolly-comp

I have decided to take a big step, and have entered this years competition to become the next Kawaii Leader for Kawaii International!

The theme this year was “Kawaii Dolly” and I had so many idea’s for it, I just couldn’t wait to get started! I did the whole photo shoot by myself, from the hair, make up and outfit, even the photography I did using the timer on my phone and a tripod. I am super excited to be involved, and I hope to do well and become one of the finalists 🙂

Since today is the first day of voting, I thought I would share with you all some of my answers for the application, starting with which photo’s I chose to use. It was such a hard choice as I took so many! But in the end I chose this one as my full length photo:

Outfit Break Down

I am a big fan of the colour pink, and I also just love to collect cute things. As you can see from the background, I have a rather large collection of adorable stuffed toys, and when it came to idea’s for this theme, I thought what better than to try to blend in and be one of my toys?

The Lolita cupcake silhouette is perfect for doing just this in my opinion, as the beautiful bell shape made from a dress and a petticoat helps to make me look like an oversized doll that could be standing on a pedestal.

The print I decided to wear is my Cotton Candy Shop JSK from Angelic pretty, as it is covered in cute bears and bunnies, and of course is a lovely shade of pink! Not to mention, it is also one of my favourite prints!

To break up all of the pink, and to help me look more like a toy, I am also wearing my purple bunny jacket from Angelic Pretty. The hood is just so fluffy, and the ears that are attached help to make this look just a little bit more toy-like.

For accessories, I am wearing the JSK’s matching over the knee socks, with some chunky purple high-heeled shoes.

On my head I have several different sized bows, the main head bow being from baby the stars shine bright. Two smaller pink and purple bows help to hold my fringe off my face and is finished with a pink dangling star clip from 6% Doki Doki.

For my make up, I decided to use bold colours that would stand out and be a little over the top. This is because most dolls you see these days have completely overstated make up, which I think has worked fantastically with this look. Eye shadow tones of light pink, purple and dark pink, finished with a heavy liner along with long bold lashes, silver glitter and some face gems. High pink blush and hot pink lipstick finishes off this look.

Over all, I am so pleased with how this outfit turned out! I feel super kawaii and adorable, an as though you could shrink me and put me on the shelf and I would fit in just like magic!

What Does Kawaii Mean to you?

To me, Kawaii is far more than just a word. To me it is everything. A fashion, a way of thinking, a lifestyle, a state of being. It’s a way to express yourself and share who you want to be with the world. It is a form of simple happiness and joy that never runs out, that you can carry around in your heart like your own little brand of unlimited cuteness to share with the world. The day I decided to stop listening to the thoughts of others and to live the kawaii life I chose was one of the happiest days of my life, it was so freeing. Kawaii is my brand of happiness.

How can you spread Kawaii Culture?

I always endeavor to share the kawaii culture in every way I possibly can!

When I am out in the public eye, I have always thought that the best way to lead is by example. That if one person see’s me somewhere, weather it is online or in real life, and that helps them gain the courage to enter a kawaii fashion, or be brave enough to stand up and be who they want to be, then I am doing my job right.

When online, I am forever posting cute snaps of outfits, talking about new releases or where to buy that cute blouse, sharing my experiences of Lolita meets I go to and generally sharing my lifestyle with anyone that is interested. To share a culture, the best way is to keep the lines of communication open so it is easy for other people who might be interested to know what is out there. I do this by posting on every single social networking media I can get my hands on, because the more the Kawaii culture is put out there, the easier it is to find.

I am always very open about my lifestyle and the things I love, and am always happy to talk to anyone who might have questions on how to kawaiify their lifestyle. To share all the knowledge I have and to be fun, open, friendly and welcoming I think is the best way to spread the kawaii culture!

International Lolita Day at Astonish Cafe!

International Lolita Day at Astonish Cafe!

International-lolita-day-at-astonish-cafe-adelaide

This year, our first International Lolita day meet was held at a place called Astonish cafe, in the city. We had all heard they did fantastic deserts, so of course we had to try it.

For my co-ord, I decided it was high time I stopped sulking about the fact that I accidentally bought they JSK of AP’s Cotton Candy Special Set instead of the Salophette, and just wear the damn thing (you can watch my un-boxing video here). It is such a gorgeous print, and was just going to waste sitting in my closet. SInce it is such a busy print, I decided to go with just simple make up, with my purple/brown toned wig.

After all the sulking I did, I was actually really please with how to JSK looked on me. I was secretly a little excited that it was actually pretty cold that day as well, because it meant I got to wear my recently acquired purple bunny jacket, which went so well with the dress.

I was running a little late (as always) as I had to get some cash out on the way, and when I arrived most of the girls were already there. It was such a cute little venue, done up all old worldy with vintage books, fire places and furniture. Was very dark inside though.

When it came time to order, I just couldn’t make up my mind what I wanted. This is apparently something that happens often, so they have a little tray you can order which has little mini samples of all the different soda’s they make. I’m so glad I got it, because not only was it adorable, but they were all so tasty! I also got a Pavlova which also came with home-made lemon sorbet, which was amazing.

It took them a fair while to bring all of our food out, and they forgot a few people which was unfortunate, but that gave us plenty of time for chatting and catching up. There were quite a few girls there that I hadn’t seen at a meet in ages, so it was good to catch up.

Once we were all done, we went outside for our group photo.

Then we all got a little silly taking selfies and more group shots 😛

I got a little creative after we took a dress print photo, and turned the camera around and took a photo upwards. Some of the faces the girls are pulling are just priceless!
