Crafting Update plus DIY

So before Animazement this year I decided to make more head bands and hair clips. All of the cupcake hair clips and ice cream headband sold out by Saturday afternoon! So I began working on new headbands and hair clips! I found some cute cupcake cups with little strawberries and I used them for these new cupcakes.

Next, I'm working on more styles of ice cream headbands and cupcake hair clips.

Next, I needed a break from crafting after Animazement so I decided to do something different. Dye jeans~ I've seen a lot of cute styles and colors all over tumblr lately and I couldn't help my self. I bought a cheap pair of white jeans and made theses:

Lavender / Pink split

Lastly I don't think I've posted my zune here, but it's some of the best deco art I think I've done. Then my camera, the first thing I've ever decorated~

Can you guess my favorite colors?

Dressing you friends up~

So on the 2nd I hosted a Japanese Fashion Event for my Best friends' cos-play club. It when extremely well, over twenty people came to see us! I spent two weeks researching all the trends and the 'Kawaii' culture that emerged from the 1980's. My two good friend Helen and Helena wanted to get dressed up for the event as well~

Oh how could I say no. For all those who wish to dress up your friends in Lolita, let them ask you. Don't try to force it just kindly ask them if they want to dress up with you and if they say no then live it be! Lolita fashion isn't for everyone and some people would rather admire the clothes than wear them.

Helena and I decided to twin Sweet Ribbon Strawberry so put together two outfits, Here are the outfits and then my make-up for the event~

I have 2 sets of Darkness eyelashes on and my contacts are Bambi Princess Mimi Chocolate Brown.

Any-who~ On to the photos, on the 2nd we went off to the borders ever! Here are the lovely ladies of United Cosplayers Club:

Next, all of us together~

From left to right, Me, Helena, and Helen~
Both Helen and Helena are wearing my newest headband~!

Me and Helen were trying to twin~
We all had a blast! Me and the girls were a little late for the event because we take forever to get ready! I became nervous when I saw how many people showed up to the event and I keep getting tongue tied. I was a bit embarrassed but all of the club members are so nice! They're like family! After the event we all got frozen yogurt and smoothies~

Oh! We also had many cupcakes~

(I was doing a peace sign and the camera covered my index finger~)

After the event Helen and Helena came back to my house and we all hung out until dinner time, we then went off to dinner at my favorite Chinese Buffet.

Possibly the best Chinese buffet in Raleigh!

After dinner we came back to my house and watched some Kamikaze Girls then we all went swimming in my pool! The next day we went to Cary Town Center mall for some fun~ I thought it would be fun for us all to wear Gothic style for a change~

Helena looking cute~

I realized at the last moment that we didn't snap any photos of Helen but she was wearing my hot pink milky way jsk with a black, white, grey, and hot pink plaid top over top tied at the bottom to match the shape of the JSK. She also was wearing my mini fedora hat that sits on the back of you head. Needless to say she looked like a hipster lolita hehe~

I looked a little spacey. But both our outfits looked great! I made the mini tricorn Helena is wearing and the steampunk hair clip I was wearing. I really ought to wear more short sleeve blouses because Helena looked very cute in that outfit~

Overall it was an awesome weekend!
