Daily Outfit: "Spread your wings!"

Good day my lovely readers,

today I have a daily outfit again with a small review:
Last month I bought a cute hoodie with wings on eBay (klick here for the link), shipping from China took about four weeks, which is normal and last thursday it was finally here.

Scarf: S I X
Hoodie: FandyQube (from eBay)
Shirt: Primark
Skirt: Primark
Leggins: Kik
Legwarmers: Offbrand
Shoes: Primark

So, I expected the hoodie to be very thin, but it's so fluffy and warm inside and perfect for colder weather. :) The quality is not the best, but it was cheap and for that price it's definitly good! No loose yarns, so sewing mistakes and it's very comfortable! :) And the wings on the back are really cute - so all in all: I'm very happy with that winged hoodie and I can recommend it.
(I could wear it all time... x''D)

I wish you all a good start into this week!

Yours,
Zhenya

November Lolita Meet up in Bremen

Hello my lovely readers,

first of all I wish you a nice 1st advent! <3

Now the christmas time starts officially and I'm getting into christmas mood slowly. Yesterday I shopped a few christmas present and my boyfriend and I visited our local christmas market. I really like the romantic and cuddly christmas feeling, the fairy lights and the smell from all the sweets you can buy on the christmas market. Do you like the christmas time?

Then to the topic of this entry: Two weeks ago we had a lolita meet up in Bremen. I spend a lot of time thinking about a coord for this meet up and it ended in a Pirate Lolita outfit. I always wanted to try this style, because I really like it, but I never had a fitting headdress. I was so flashed by the idea of wearing pirate that I sewed a tricorn for my outfit. It was my first tricorn, so it's not perfect, but I like how it turned out. :)

- My finished tricorn -
I was so excited wearing Pirate Lolita for the first time, I also bought a pistole to complete the outfit. 

The meet up itself was great! <3 We were 8 lolitas and started the meet up with visiting a café, we ate some yummy cake, drank coffee and talked a lot. After that we went outside and took a lot of pictures. We had a lot of fun and in my opinion it was such a relaxing meet up. This was just like how meet ups should be. Well, it was not a special meet up, I know. Anyway, having a good time is more important than having a big and special meet up. ;)

Here are a few pictures we took:

- Our group: FumikoChan, _-misaki-_, Channa, me, hagelschaden, Berrii, Lolizzy and Hanabi -

- Pictures of my outfit (taken by Hanabi) -
- Sweet Berrii and me -
I felt great wearing Pirate Lolita and I'll definitly wear it again! <3 I'm also looking foward to our christmas meet up in a few weeks.

Everyone, enjoy your sunday and have a relaxing day. :)

Yours,
Zhenya

NiCon 2013: Last convention this year

Hello my lovely readers,

today I'm writing a few words about the NiCon 2013 in Hannover (Germany), which was the last convention this year for me. First of all: it was one of my best conventions this year! I had a lot of bad moments, especially during some bigger conventions. But the NiCon - it's a small convention - showed me that cosplay is also fun and passion. :)

I finally wore my Compa costume - Compa is a character from the cute game Hyperdimension Neptunia - I planned to cosplay her already in early summer this year. But I put the costume often away and stopped working on it. But... for NiCon I finished it - It's not perfect and I have to improve a few parts - but I'm glad I finished it. <3 
I thought Hyperdimension Neptunia is unknown and I never expected someone might know the character I'm cosplaying. Though a lot of people identified me as Compa and praised my costume. That was just... amazing for me! *_* I also felt very good being Compa and walking around in that costume, I think I'll wear it again.

Besides that cosplaying I met many people and cosplay friends. Talked a lot and I also met new people. :) And my sister Hanabi was also there. I'm always happy meeting me sister, because since I've moved away I don't see her often. So it's always great spending time with her. :)
Of course we made a lot of pictures and just had a good time... aaaaand I bought a cute Alpaca! <3 It's light blue with a lilac hat, Hanabi bought an Alpaca in lilac with a light blue hat. Alpacas are sooo cute and fluffy! :)

Here are some pictures from NiCon:
- Pictures of me as Compa (Pictures by Laura von Krone and Hanabi)
- Hanabi in her gorgeous Lolita outfit -
- Hanabi and I with our Alpacas <3 -


My convention time will start again 2014 when the bookfair in Leipzig starts in march. I hope future conventions will be as great as the NiCon was. I'm motivated for new cosplays and I think I'll also wear Lolita again on conventions. :)

I wish you all a nice week!

Yours,
Zhenya

FBM 2013: Finally wearing Lolita again!

Hello my lovely readers,

today I want to write a few words about the bookfair in Frankfurt, which was around two weeks ago. It was my first time at the FBM and I was a little bit amazed. I have been quite a few times at the bookfair in Leipzig (LBM), but the FBM is bigger and has such great places for taking pictures. Even the LBM has more anime/manga/comic stuff, the FBM has a pretty "cosplay corner" and also booths with anime/manga figures and more. Besides that great location I had a lot of fun and a good time with my friends Fuwari and Romy (and of course the others I spent the weekend with). :)

And of course I finally had a chance to wear lolita again! I decided to go with my beloved Wonder Story apron skirt. <3 It's been a long time since I wore Sweet Lolita, so at first I felt a little strange in it, but this feeling changend quickly and I was very happy wearing it. Unfortunately I haven't seen a lot lolitas. :( 
Anyway, here are a few pictures:

 (Pictures by Tom_Green, Aonir & Romy)

On FBM sunday I was part of a super cute Tamako Market cosplay group. Fot those who don't know what it is: Tamako Market is an anime by KyoAni with a group of sweet girls - check out this for more: Tamako Market. I was so happy beeing part of this group, we took a lot of pretty pictures, had fun and I got filmed for the first time by a videographer! *_* (Check out his YouTube Channel: MexxKite) The video isn't online yet, I'll show you, when it is. But I can show you some pictures of our cosplay group and my cosplay from sunday:


- The girls are: Fuwari as Kanna, Chikara-chan as Tamako, Romy as Midori and me as Shiori (from left to right) - 
(Pictures by Romy, Fuwari and Aryana)

I was so happy that I could be Shiori in this group and I hope to cosplay with this girls again someday. <3
In conclusion: My FBM was awesome! I hope I'll be able to be there next year again.

I wish you all a wonderful evening and a great weekend!

Yours,
Zhenya

Connichi 2013: A convention with ups and downs (Picture heavy!)

Hello my lovely readers,

to my german readers: "I wish you all a very good day of german unity!" :) 
So, I have some muffins in the oven and I thought I could use this time to write an entry about this year's Connichi in Kassel (Germany). Fot those, who don't know, the Connichi is the biggest Anime/Manga and also japanese lifestyle convention in Germany.

I was very excited about it, because I've planned to wear one of my bigger cosplay dreams. But the two weeks before Connichi were suu~uuper stressful. x_X I had to finish two cosplays (one for my boyfriend and one for me) and I had no time for doing sports and so on. I was sewing almost 24 hours a day and had less sleep. I just hoped it will be worth it... but everything turned out differently.
First my cosplay plan for that weekend: Vivi Nefertari (One Piece) on friday, Female Hunter (Ragnarok Online) on saturday and Ingrid (Street Fighter) on sunday. Thankfully we could sleep at the place from a good friend of my boyfriend. She was so nice to us. :)

Friday was a more relaxing day. My Vivi cosplay was a chillin' version with a blue shirt and some shorts, only my wig was heavy and not that easy to wear. My boyfried wore his Ruffy cosplay (he was my cosplay partner the whole weekend x'D). On friday we saw our friends often and had the most fun. In retrospect, Friday was the best Connichi day. 
Here are some impressions:

 (Pictures by VH-Visions)

And then came saturday. I was so happy to finally wear my female Hunter cosplay, because I worked a lot for it. >_< I is bellyfree and I really hate my belly, but I gave my best to make it look... okay. x''D My Hunter and my boyfriends Ranger cosplay, both were hard work. But the weather on saturday was rainy, cold and I wasn't in a good mood. :( So in the end we don't have that much of pictures and our cosplays wasn't perfect. I noticed that I still need to improve some parts. Here are a few pictures:

 (Pictures by AFP, NightmareLuffy & VincetBär)

And then sunday, I wore Ingrid from Street Fighter again. She's still one of my favorite cosplays and very nice to wear. The weather was better again and my mood was also better. But I still felt a little sad, because saturday went so... wrong. Sunday was also the last day of the convention and on saturday and sunday I didn't see my friends that often. :( At least we have some very pretty pictures from sunday:

 (All pictures taken by the wonderful and talented Maria)

In conclusion: This Connichi was so full of ups and downs. I learned a lot about cosplay and friendship - and I hope next conventions will be better. One big thing this year was that I met Yaya Han! *_* She is one of my big cosplay idols and I got an photo with her and an autograph. And I saw a lot of friends during that weekend and also met new people. :) Not everything was bad. Maybe the future conventions will be with less bad moments and with more good moments! <3 I was so unhappy with myself as a cosplayer during Connichi, I hope I can change this next year and I hope I'll be happy again with myself in a cosplay.
 (Yaya Han and me)

I wish you all a nice evening! :D

Yours,
Zhenya

Daily Outfit: Back to black

Helly my lovely readers,

Oh my! Yes, I'm still alive and I'm sorry that I haven't written since the beginning of august. But I had soo many things to do and nothing really special happend - well, I visited the Connichi 2013, but I will write an own entry about that convention. ;)

First of all - the reason for my title - I dyed my hair again. This time a color my boyfriend chosed: black with a blue shimmer. Well, "back to black" might be wrong, because the darkest color I once had was a dark brown. I was so afraid. I always have that fear, when I dye my hair, that it might look totally ugly or something. But on the other I never use permant colorations, so the color will be washed out after around 4-8 weeks. ^^'

So have some pictures:
 

 Shirt: H&M
Shorts: The Sting
Tights: Offbrand
Shoes: AnnChristing
Necklace: H&M

When I looked in the mirror for the first time with my new haircolor I was a little bit shocked, because... well... it's really dark. But now, I kinda like it and I think it's really fits these colder days, which are coming now. :)

One very good thing about autumn is that I'm really getting into some kind of "Lolita-Mood" again! I'm excited about coming meet ups and I want to wear my pretty dresses again. I hope I can write about new Lolita meet ups soon. <3

Have a nice day!

Yours,
Zhenya

New Lolita stuff: Wonder Story is here

Hello my lovely readers,

I hope you are all fine. °~° 
I'm sorry for not writing many blog entries during the last time, but I'm still busy with university and also some things in my private life keep me away from my computer.

But today a dream came true! *_* <3 I always wanted Angelic Prettys' Wonder Story print, because I really love all 'Alice in wonderland' related things and Wonder Story is just gorgeous. But when the print was released I had no money to buy it. The print is also very popular and hard to get. And then... one evening I saw someone selling a Wonder Story Set (Apron Skirt + Headbow) on the german lolita site "Dunkelsüß" - There was my chance!!! 
Luckily I was the first in line, I had no money during that time, but she reserved it a few days until I have the money and today the postman brought to me.


Well, now I'm one of the happiest girls in the world! *_*<3 There it is! Beautiful as expected, so cute and in my dream color - light blue:
- The set: Apron skirt & headbow (Sorry for the bad lightning) -

The seller also gave a bracelet and two hairpins as an extra with the package:
- Bracelet and two "AP" hairpins, soo cute -

And here's a picture when I tried it on:
- I apologize for being a barefoot lolita, but it was just a short try on ^^' Anyway, I'm so happy that it fits me! <3 -

I my Wonder Story set from Yuzuki, she's a great seller! After my money was on her bank account she sent it so fast, it only took 24hrs and it was here. :D Yes, it was in the same country, but I also had cases, when sending took a few days in the same country. 

Now, I hope I'll get a chance to wear this as a complete outfit soon. Maybe during the Connichi (a big convention here in Germany) next month. :)

Have a nice day everyone!

Best wishes,
Zhenya

PS: To my german readers - Are you going to visit the Connichi in September? :3

Lolita Meet up in Braunschweig the 3rd round

Hello my lovely readers,

oh my god... my last entry was almost a month ago. >_<'' But today I finally have something Lolita-related again: On saturday I organised the 3rd Lolita meet up in Braunschweig. The weather was nice and sunny (almost a little too hot for wearing lolita), so we made a small picnic. We only had to change the park, because at first I wanted to go the Bürgerpark, but there were so many mosquitos. We decided to go to a park near the main staition, in fact there were less mosquitos. :')

Besides the mosquito attack in the beginning it was a great meet up! <3 I met my beloved friends again (I was so happy they came! *_*) and we had a great time. Everyone brought delicous food and we took some pretty pictures. :)

Here is my outfit: I went in Sailor Lolita to the meet up and decided against a wig (it was just too hot for a wig), but I tried to curl my hair... and... i failed. My hair hates curles, they never stay in it. x''D 

 Hat: Alice and the Pirates
JSK: Metamorphose
Cutsew: Metamorphose
Socks: Offbrand
Shoes: Montreal
Accessories: I am, Bijou Brigitte and offbrand

Here are two pictures of our lovely group:
- (from left to right) kueken-chan, BERRIE, Berrii, Romy, Cyehra, Mini and me (BERRIE and Mini wore more casual and less Lolita outfits) -

And now a few impressions of our picnic:
 - It was enough for everyone and veee~eery yummy! -

I'm very happy that it was such a nice meet up, I hope the next meet up will be that good again. :) If some of you might be interested, all pictures from the meet up can be seen here: --> Klick for pictures!

And now I wish you all a nice and sunny day and a great week!

Yours,
Zhenya

Daily Outfit: 'Skeleton you are my friend...'

Good morning my lovely readers,

today it's time for a new daily outfit post. This time a more simple and comfortable look including one of my latest obsessions: Skeleton/Ribcage shirts. <3 I don't know, I really like wearing a ribcage as shirt print, I already bought three shirts with it and I like them all. :D

So, here is my outfit today:

Shirt: NewYorker
Shorts: H&M
Tights: Offbrand
Shoes: Primark
Necklace and Hairclip: Claire's

  Here are some details:

 - Necklace -
- Hairclip -

I finally found WOWSABI, a nailpolish by Manhatten from the limited collection YEAH&YANG, which was sold out in my town. I bought it last weekend in my hometown. It's a greenish/mint color and I'm happy that I got it now. I also bought a color called TOKYO TANGERINE, it's a more pinkish/salmon color.

- WOWSABI and TOKYO TANGERINE (in the background) -

And now I wish you all a great start into this week!

Daily Outfit: On this sunny day...

Hello my lovely readers,

it's time for a new daily outfit. :) Today is a warm and sunny day here in Germany - AND I just love it! <3 I'm such a big fan of summer and hot sunny days. I decided to wear some pumps today (normally I wear more sneakers, like Converse All Star) and so... my feet hurt after a short time. >_<'' I need to train my feet walking in high shoes again.

But enough with talking, here is my outfit today:

Scarf: S I X
Shirt: Ann Christin
Top: The Sting
Jeans: H&M
Shoes: bought on a vintage flea market

 
Well, I'm finally able to wear my favorite jeans again! During the last four weeks I lost around 3kg - still you can't see it (;_;). I feel better, but there are still 9kg to go and I hope I'll reach my goal soon.
 
I wish you all a nice and sunny day! :D

Greetings,
Zhenya

Lolita Meet up: "We tried to have a picnic..."

Good evening my lovely readers,

last saturday we had a Lolita meet up in Bremen. We planned a picnic, but the weather went another way... it was to cold for having a picnic outside. So we visited the "Übersee Museum" in Bremen.
It was great, I saw a lot of interesting things (I loved the asia parts with a tea-house and pretty japanese stuff).

Around 4 pm we went to the café as we always do. We drank coffee, tea and hot chocolate and ate cake. :) Unfortunately it wasn't the same café, which we attend normally. It was smaller and not as good as the other café is. But we didn't let this fact rain our parade (this phrase sounds strange... x'D).

After that we had a small photo shoot, it was cold... although we had a lot of fun and some pretty pictures came out.^^
It was very nice meet up and I really like my outfit (I wore my beloved 'Marionette in my closet room' JSK by Alice and the Pirates). I wasn't satisfied with my Lolita outfit during the LBM 2013 and that made me feeling uncomfortable with myself as a Lolita. Now... I'm newly motivated! <3

'Thank you all for that lovely meet up!'

And here are some pictures:
- Our group: Lolizzy, _-misaki-_, chibi_ichigo, Nessera_Noire, Cyehra, Berrii, Dieur_Mind, me, Kueken-chan, Tobio, Hagelschaden & a Friend of Tobio -
- A picture of a cute wolf and the japanese tea-house -
- A close up with Berrii <3 -
And my outfit:
 Headdress: Innocent World and Rose-Hairclips by H&M
Blouse: Bodyline
JSK: Alice and the Pirates
Tights: Offbrand
Shoes: Deichmann
Accessories: Claire's and Offbrand

I also made an unboxing video with my 'Marionette in my closet room' JSK. It's in german, but there's not so much to say... I'm just unboxing and dress and telling about about it.



That's it for today, I wish you all a nice evening. :)

Best wishes,
Zhenya
