An older picture of one of my favourite dresses from my favourite indies brand, Haenuli.  This is the Sleeping Beauty print in black.  I wore it in February 2013 for a Valentine’s Day meet up (which I never seem to manage to stay on theme for) along with a necklace that I made after realizing that all my more elegant lolita jewelry was in gold-tone…

Outfit rundown:

Dress: Haenuli
Hair Corsage: Surface Spell
Necklace: Made by me
Purse: Black Peace Now
Everything else: Off-brand

Hey! :D I saw your post about Ikebukuro Animate and the Free! shops - I'm visiting Tokyo later this month, do you know which exit from Ikebukuro station I can use to get to the shops? Thanks! :3
costlypunch asked

Take the exit towards Sunshine City.  Most of the shopping are in that direction.  There’s one “main street” that most people seem to follow to get to Sunshine City from the station.  It’s just off this main street and not hard to find at all.  You’ll find the same/similar merchandise at pretty much any Animate though.  There are equally convenient and impressive locations in Shinjuku and Akihabara.  If you haven’t been to Tokyo before, I’m working on a couple of geek tourist guides for my friends (http://amy-the-yu.livejournal.com/), many of whom are also going within the next month.  The area guide isn’t complete yet, but it should be about done if you check back in a week. =)

Go big or go home, right?  

My outfit for the Enchanted event in London, England.  I decided to go with an outfit inspired by Grimore to pay homage to Hitomi Nomura who was a guest.  It was my first time in Europe and I am absolutely in love with the culture and wonderful people there.  So many lovely people.  I miss you all.

Hardest decision in life.  Which ridiculously cute carry on should I use for my trip?…

A display at the Tokyu Hands in Ikebukuro of different releases of gachapon bottle and cup ladies.  Ironically, none of the gachapons they displayed could be found in their gachapon machines.

None of my hair plans for my Saturday outfit are working right, so I’m making myself a big ass bonnet to cover up my failures.  17in (43cm) in diameter.  BIG.  ASS.  BONNET. >=D

And adorable bottle of Eeveelution…uh…mystery fluid?

I found this in Tokyo, but was afraid to buy it because I couldn’t figure out what it was (it was in the liquids section of a small grocery store).  The katakana in yellow reads “shanmerii”.  It felt like a squeeze bottle inside, like what Kewpie mayo comes in…  Someone please tell me what this is.  What the heck is Sylveon/Nymphia promoting? X_X

I think it’s fake champagne/some kind of fake alcohol aimed at kids! read this

Thanks so much!  A friend also just mentioned me that it’s non-alcoholic champagne for kids, but even she didn’t know why it’s called shanmerii.  I can finally sleep soundly again. ~~~ <3
