Going to the movies!

Yesterday I went to watch Final Destination 5 with my boyfriend at Marshopping,which was the only place close by where it was showing. One would think I'd have a hard time wearing lolita at the mall, but nobody made any rude remarks or anything. In fact, most people were just surprised or enjoying it.



We had dinner at the food court like a couple of teenagers who can't afford restaurants and ran around the mall waiting for MOVIE TIME.
I felt like wearing lolita so I did. At first I thought of wearing black, but then I remembered my super-gay glittery pink manicure, so I actually just matched my clothes to my nails: pink, white and off-white with lots of frills and girly-ness. I really loved this colour-combo even though it was so simple.
I decided to be casual since I was going all "lone lolita" with my boyfriend at the mall. No crazy colourful prints or huge hair with a massive bow mounted on it, instead I picked soft colours and a plain dress.
I'm wearing the Polkadot Ribbon Bolero, white Jewel Blouse with pink jabot, BtSSB's Lace Frill JSK, over the knee BtSSB lace top socks and Heart Bag in white. The headband is from Mary Magdalene, wrist cuffs are from Angelic Pretty and everything else is off-brand.
I didn't do anything to my hair, it's naturally straight like this.
This photo was taken just after my boyfriend walked out of the game store and found out they didn't have Demon Souls which he was planning to buy. "Sadface", he says. I decided to sit outside and wait while fixing my shoes and not watching as my fate was about to be shattered by a video game which would keep my boyfriend busy forever and ever and frustrated by the mystical difficulty level that Demon Souls is rumored to possess. Alas, the game was not available and Diablo 3's beta is yet to come out, so I get to watch silly cartoons with him. Yay!
I found a weird mirror wall and called him over so we could be retards about it together for a while, which we were. Once tired of acting like idiots in front of the weird mirror wall, we proceeded to walk around some more, went in to a toy store which had playing food items made to look like real food items, I was attracted by the miniature fake Nutella jar and there we proceeded to being mesmerized by the ensemble of miniature food thingies, then went on to be flabbergasted by the miniature animals, which I used to argument that cows are adorable and thus boyfriend should feel bad for eating them. My main argument in favor of why cows are cute is their big pink noses which are shiny and cute and pink. And their babies are like little mono-tone fawns.

Boyfriend as he waits in line to get change for the machines located to his left.

After the movie, boyfriend waited in line to get change for the toy machine thingies you see there to his left, they contain magical wonders such as Hello Kitty rings and other awesome prizes that I always desire t possess. Knowing this, boyfriend promptly offered his monetary powers to acquire these sparkly treasures of wonder and plastic.
Alas, the ring turned out to be the green one, which I already had from the last time we went to the movies together and he also made me an offering of plastic kitten shaped jewellery.
While he was waiting in line for coin, I acquired photographic evidence of how, during the film, I successfully accessorized my coordinate further with delicious pop-corn. Or shards of delicious pop-corn, as seen on the picture of my boobs I so carelessly decided to take in public and proceeded to publish on my lolita blog like a class-less lolita-chan. You mad, loli police?
While we waited for our ride back home, we lingered in our sadness or despair, caused by the failure to purchase Demon Souls or gather a Hello Kitty ring I didn't already have among my epic collection of trinkets. Upon closer inspection, we discovered the machine seemed to be full with green rings. THE OUTRAGE was short-lived, as I quickly came up with the solution of offering it to my green-haired best friend, who also happens to be a Hello Kitty enthusiast. Everything went better than expected? Perhaps, but I expect a different ring next time.

I only actually remembered to snap a picture of my outfit without the bolero when I got home, and since the light isn't the best, the photo isn't great either. But you get an idea, it looked cute and the jabot from the blouse really bring the pink and the white together.
Notice the glory of the kitty-castle in my room, with the kitty herself attending to her genitals in the foreground.

28th of August

I am a lazy bum and only decided to update on the last Meet-Up now. This was the "Meet up that wasn't at Rota do Chá" and I arrived two hours late because it was Sunday and I had a busy Saturday night.

I decided to try something new and bring my eye-liner a bit over the usual point at the beginning of the eye. I don't really like it so I won't be doing it again.
There is the usual sticking of sparkly things around my eyes, huge eye-lashes and circle lenses-thing going on, nothing new there.
I replaced the balls on my lower lip piercings for little pearl-like balls, I think they will work better in other colours which I will try next time.
Pink blush overload, on the cheeks and with a somewhat rounded shape, for my lips I only applied some lip balm because they're already kind of full and I don't like to make them look any fuller. I also apply foundation on the sides of my lips to make them seem smaller.

When we all got together we went to take some pictures before the sun was gone, there are tons of pictures, I look like a retard in most.
I wore the mint Milky Berry JSK from Angelic Pretty and matching OTK socks. The miniature hat is also Angelic Pretty, the Cherry Berry Mini Hat. Bloomers are from Baby the Stars Shine Bright and the wrist cuffs are also Angelic Pretty.
The other items are off-brand. The blouse was found at a regular clothing store, the accessories were bought over time, online or in stores, and the shoes are Secret Shop Angelic Pretty replicas. As much as I oppose buying replicas, shoes are my only exception because I can't bring myself to pay over 200€ for a pair of plastic shoes with a bow on them, since shoes are subject to so much more abuse than any other item. It's true that I could buy other shoes instead of opting for replicas, but taking into account the fact that it's hard to find a pair of shoes that will fit this well outside of lolita and I already invest enough in brand items to make buying a couple of replica shoes quite meaningless. Of course this is my opinion, feel free to discuss!
I used a garter belt to keep my socks up and safety pins to keep my bloomers straight and in place.
I felt my head-gear was a little unbalanced so I opted for some hair clips on the other side. The red bows matched the hat's ribbon perfectly and were very useful at keeping it from slowly sliding off my head, since the only thing the hat has to keep it on people's heads is the ribbon.
Children's sections in stores are great for finding cute hair clips, all of the clips you see here are from children's sections.
I have my lobes stretched to 16mm, it is somewhat recent and I'm still trying to decide if I want to keep them at 16mm or go over to 18mm before I start investing in prettier jewellery for them.
The next body modification projects I have are nostril piercings (one on each side), stretching my tongue piercing to about 5mm and my septum piercing to about 5mm. As much as I enjoy piercings with lolita and think my modifications are still okay, I have to agree that a 3mm septum ring might look too aggressive, so when wearing lolita I'll probably use a retainer or a set of two small rings, which I think looks really cute and was what first made me want to stretch my septum in the first place. That and the fact that I might be somewhat addicted to body modification haha





In other lolita-news: I spoiled myself with a bit of a lolita shopping-spree this months and purchased Angelic Pretty's Jewel Blouse (whitexpink short sleeve version), the Strawberry Cherry Satin Ribbon Bolero (red), the Polkadot Ribbon Bolero in white, which I also have in black, aaand the Royal Poodle Skirt in blue WITH the elusive brooch included.
Sure, I am totally broke, but I'm happy and I know I'll wear all of these items since they fit in to my closet. The Strawberry Cherry bolero is an excellent purchase since I have three dresses I can wear it with, the Polakdot Ribbon bolero is versatile and a good way to create different looks for a lot of dresses and skirts. The blouse is a basic piece and my first brand blouse, and the skirt was purchased with the money from a skirt I didn't wear and decided to sell in order to replace it with something I'd wear more often, which I am pretty sure I did.

Thanks for reading!
