Movie inspiration

Is this
ever coming to Finland? I love the book and really enjoyed the BBC-series and this version. I wasn't terribly fond of Mia Wasikowska in Alice, but I've heard she has improved. And mmm, bonnet lust. I just re-read Wuthering Heights and am definitely feeling Bronte inspired.

"It's a rough journey, and a sad heart to travel it; and we must pass by Gimmerton Kirk to go that journey! We've braved its ghosts often together, and dared each other to stand among the graves and ask them to come. But, Heathcliff, if I dare you now, will you venture? If you do, I'll keep you. I'll not lie there by myself: they may bury me twelve feet deep, and throw the church down over me, but I won't rest till you are with me. I never will!' She paused, and resumed with a strange smile. 'He's considering - he'd rather I'd come to him! Find a way, then! not through that kirkyard. You are slow! Be content, you always followed me!'

And autumn has made me want to rewatch Coraline

Random videos of me

I ran into an old video of me from summer 2009
Lolitas who stare at sheep. (And wish them well and tasty dandelions.)

And here is me dancing or really more just frolicking in Yoyogi park this summer. I miss my love's and my evening/night walks there. It was very romantic. Little bats kept flying over our heads. It was such an artistic atmosphere I just had to dance.

More on the lovely Cloudberry Lady's teaparty later

Honey, they forgot to put tea in here... But I admit this dinosaur has a bigger headdress.
Maybe this is good for my body image issues...

Waffle café

Husband and I tested the waffle café in Tampere. Delicious breakfast. Sadly a little crowded on a Sunday afternoon...

Current obsession- The Addams Family. Learning being ookey, snap, snap.

The plastic family grows

Kittymas came early this year. She was supposed to be a Kittymas present, but my hubby didn't have the heart to keep her wrapped up so long. (Actually alwayt s when the autumn start I get a bit of a craving that it's going to be Kittymas soon. Before the whole commercial it's blasted from everywhere hoopla starts, that ruins it.) So my plastic family from IW is now complete. I think I'm going to name her Antoinette, because I've been reading a book about Marie Antoinette, and oh well...If only I were her size and could borrow her clothes...

The Daily outfit. APs secret garden was my first brand dress. And I still wear it a lot. It was passed along the lolita community a lot before finding a loving home at my place.  Autumn often brings with it a craving for black.

Autumn inspiration faery rings

When I was little I was told when you step in one you can see faeries dancing. Sadly this time the only visible one there was me. Some say they are gateways to their kingdom or where one has appeared. I've seen unusually many this autumn.

ps. Random picture. After Tracon a ladybug appeared in my hat while waiting for food at a Chinese restaurant.

Thing I would like to see (more) as loli prints

-Old star charts. Being a space nerd I'd like something space related that doesn't look like it shoud be hanging over a crib. I could stare at Hubble pictures for hours, but I guess nebulas would just look like random blobs of colour..
-Old maps, with  text "here be dragons"...
-Mushrooms. Cute and delightfully phallic.
-Brian Froud-like faeries, goblins and elves. Rather a bit mischevious than sweet.
-Spooky trees would work well as a gothic print. Or just trees and foliage for a mori-inspired look.
-Penguins or puffins would make an adorable sweet print.
-Witches with brooms and cauldrons, maybe with frogs and lizards...

What would you like to see?

Tracon fashion show

Yesterday I was in a fashion show in tracon. The coordinate wasn't all that original, and hair didn't quite work out the way I wanted to, but I had fun. I love being on stage, but my personal style tends to be a bit too toned down to really work on a runway. I missed my pointeshoes.

Thank you for the picture .
