2016

…so. I have reached a new low (or have I?) in not updating in over a year. I have all these half-written drafts that are just… half-written. And nowhere near completion anytime soon. So here’s another of those point-form overall dump-y type of updates. :’D;;

BJD: Work/Event

  • anemone has been rebranded to Ma Petite Cherie!
  • Actually achieved a very significant milestone of producing doll wigs! Only 3 styles in 4 colors and 1 size (21cm) for now but hey, it’s a really big start!
  • First time having a booth in an overseas doll convention (DollPaCa in Bangkok)! We timed it so that we could launch MPC and the wigs together
  • Went out on a leg with T to organize a doll event in Singapore: DOLLelong. It’s currently in the booth application stage. Really hoping it’ll work out!
  • Attended my first Dolpa in March this year! I was a little disappointed but it was a HTDP in Kyoto, so the scale was kinda small. I’m hoping the Tokyo ones would be much better!
  • Skipped the annual doll trip to Hong Kong in July this year due to budget constraints, unfortunately :(!
  • Decided to take on a fandom-related booth at SGDC this year (Touken Ranbu) but 4 costumes proved too much for me to handle after all. In the end, we did a no-show, oops. I learned a lot in terms of Japanese-style outfit sewing when sweatshopping the costumes though! Especially because I stupidly decided to try making them as historically accurate as possible.

Towards the Shining Light

Towards the shining light

Like how Hibiki is looking towards the bright shining future, stay strong and hang in there, Japan. The rest of the world are with you.

On the topic of Japan, I’m sure there are better sources of information for how one can help (list of charities etc) but here’s one:

Donation to the Japanese Red Cross through Google Checkout

There are many other ways to donate right now but personally, I would rather give it right to the source.

Formspring! + OOTD 4 Mar 2011

FrivoInd now has a Formspring!

Well, it’s more like a personal Formspring than one specially for FrivoInd but I’m the only admin here anyway. XD Feel free to ask me anything!

And to make this post slightly more fulfilling content-wise, here’s my not-very-exciting outfit for a casual dinner with some friends last Friday evening:

I love that Alice in Wonderland-themed top!

Lolita Wardrobe 2011

Did this a few days ago for the LiveJournal egl community’s January theme, which was Wardrobe Posts!

Sorry about the weird lighting in some of the pictures; it’s been raining almost non-stop for a few days and my home is really dark.

I’m in the midst of a style shift from classic to gothic and I like wearing ETC for casual/otome-kei wear AND the occasional sweet-till-idk-what-i-was-thinking stuff, so the stuff in my wardrobe end up looking rather ‘mixed’. ^^;; I don’t know how to classify what sort of loli I am because of this (I like a bit of everything!), but I think what matters more is that one wears what they like instead of sticking steadfastly to a certain style just because anyway. (of course, there’s nothing wrong if you are completely happy sticking to just one style!)
