Of Summer Projects and things to come...

Whew! Long time no post, eh? I'm terribly sorry about that, but I've been swamped with last minute assignments since the end of the semester is swiftly approaching. But there is good news!

Do you all remember that really pretty Moitie dress I bought from a local Lolita? The one that just didn't fit my bust and was a wee bit too short? Yeah, that one...I'm trading it.

A lovely girl from Japan contacted me via Poupee Girl and asked to buy it. I wasn't entirely sure about pricing so she offered a trade. In return for my super rare and possibly coveted Moitie OP, she's going to send me Holy Queen JSK in blue.


I did a fair amount of research on this dress, it's a bit longer than my current one and the bodice is all elasticized so it's pretty much guaranteed to fit. I think I'm getting a great deal. Blue isn't a color I really delve into much concerning Lolita and I'm not even that big a fan of Moitie but! This dress is quite pretty and I'd be an idiot to turn down this deal.

In other news....I bought something really funny and tacky last weekend. Well, the boy did but still...




Its a ridiculously pink bonnet style hat. This thing really isn't my style at all, but as I told the boy "I look at things for what they could be, not what they are." And so this is going to be one of my summer projects. I intend to spray the whole thing black and add some ribbon and lace trim to make it into a really simple Gothic Lolita sun hat. Something I could wear with any coordinate....

Maybe even with my new Holy Queen JSK, no?

Not that you've all gotten a brief update into what's been going on, I'm going to return to my homework. I have two online exams today, so wish me luck!

  1. That hat. I have that hat. I found it in my mother's basement, except that mine is natural straw. I'm currently remaking it to go with my wardrobe (and to fit on my head).

  2. One thing I'd recommend re: the hat is to look into using dye to turn it black. Paint always has the risk of chipping and peeling if the straw shifts. Dye stays forever.

  3. Ah yes, I've been looking into other coloring methods. Thanks for pointing that one out!
