Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everybody! What did you dress up as?

I wore two costumes myself. One for Mischief night...

A marionette! Creepy, right?!

I used concealer to help blank out my lips, then I used liquid liner to draw the lines and the creepy thin puppet mouth. I also wore a top and bottom set of false eyelashes to really give my eyes a doll like look. The puppeteer's handle is clipped to my hair. I got a lot of compliments on this outfit, and lots of weird catcalls("Hey puppet, I'll never tug on your strings, AWOOOO!!")

And on Halloween itself...

I chose this outfit so it wouldn't be too scary for my 2 year old nephew. Here you can really see my hair straight. It looks so different!! My boyfriend got me this parka for my birthday in October. It's sooooo convenient, and cute too! It has really deep pockets. I adore it!

JSK, purse, jewelry: Angelic Pretty
shoes: Alice and the Pirates
parka: Baby, the Stars Shine Bright
star clip: 6% Doki Doki

Ninja Death

Time to introduce a new post series!

It's happened to all of us. You're watching late night or saturday morning tv, or you pick up one of those dollar DVDs at the supermarket on a whim and you stumble across something amazing... amazingly BAD! And you can't look away. That's what this ongoinging series of posts is about: Celebrating the best of the worst!

One of the most notorious genres for bad movies is kung-fu movies. I have a few favorite bad kung-fu movies, but today I want to share one of my favorites: the Ninja Death trilogy.

(Ninja Death 2 and 3 start with the same intro sequence)

It's a trilogy of bad, adorned with an incredibly pointless storyline, and crowned with atrocious dubbed voice acting. These movies follow the story of Tiger, a chinese boy raised and taught kung-fu by a beggar. Turns out the beggar is actually Tiger's uncle, and Tiger is the son of a japanese princess and a ninja who were killed for defying the Grand Master, a dude in a gold lame jumpsuit. Plot for revenge insues, yadda yadda, et cetera, et cetera. There's a kinda busted looking love interest, a guy with a lovely teased ponytail named Fujiko(?!), the pimpin' villian in a gold lame jumpsuit, and so many bad special effects it'll make your head spin! A good series for parties; have your own Mystery Science Theater 3000 riff-a-thon!

Well, don't just sit there, go ahead, enjoy! Or, curse me for stealing hours from your life with this series. Whichever works for you.

Color Series: Rainbow

In this blog, I'll be doing "Color Series" posts; posts featuring my current favorite items of a certain color. One week might be red, the next week purple. For the first post, let's start with the best color... Rainbow! Okay, so it's not really a color, but it's fitting to start off with all the colors, right?

Well if you couldn't tell, I like rainbows. Big bright obnoxious colors, splattered all over, mmmhmmm gimmie more! I especially adore primary colors. And lately I feel like they're everywhere, tempting me, haunting me to buy them! Well, I caved and bought this beauty:
From Ichiroya.com

A rainbow furisode?! How could I stay away? I bought it from Ichiroya.com, a great vintage kimono website.

Shortly after buying it, I realized there's no way I could make a traditionally acceptable kimono coordinate out of this furisode. Not that it's not possible, but I know me, and I won't be able to stop myself from buying tons of rainbow accessories to go with it.

Like... rainbow false eyelashes, for example:

My heart beats out of my chest just thinking about them! Paired with some obnoxious fake nails...
Bingo! Now the only thing left is what to wear on my feet. What's the most obnoxious shoe in existence? Nope, it's not crocs! It's...
Platform thongs?! Eeeeew! Maybe that's taking it too far. Perhaps I should stop, before this dream-weaving shopping cart goes haywire...

On second thought...

Welcome to my blog! Here you'll see daily outfits, photos from fashion shows I've attended or walked in, lifestyle and food, and anything else I want to share. I started this blog because LiveJournal communities were feeling a little cramped. I wanted to branch out and have a more sharable space to post the variety of things I wanted to share with a wider audience.
