Shoe-aholic & E.L.F. cosmetics

I think many of you already know the Asian fashion site Yesstyle. I've been looking at there stuff from time to time but never really bought anything... However today, I just browsed through their shoe-collection and I fell TOTALLY in love with almost everything I saw !! Omg why haven't I checked it out earlier??
There are SO many shoes I want - but I'm scarred of buying too much and get an awfully unfair high tax on it D:

Anyway, this is what I've been drooling over *Q*

Me liking angle boots? What do you mean? XD Oh and the last pairs were really funny since I saw the same heartshaped heel when I was in Japan last year. I think they are kinda cute even though they are a bit over the top Barbie-style. But I still think it would be funny to own them... I don't know if I should get them in pink or black yet since the pink ones are REALLY pink... But it would be kinda funny too (*≧▽≦)
They have some really cute summer shoes as well but it might be maybe a bit tooo early since we're getting into winter =.=

Since I don't have any real winter shoes and totally underestimated the sickening cold winter last year, I'm thinking to buy some really warm and comfortable ones... Mmm yeah I want some moonboots~
DC winter boots..! I remember hating moonboots, especially when they were really popular and almost everyone had a pair.. But I actually think the DC ones are cute and they're SUPER comfortable. So I don't have to worry for wet and cold feet I guess (*´ο`*)=3

I also bought some stuff from the UK cosmetic site E.L.F.. I ordered a makeup palette from the US Coastal Scents earlier this year, and it was really nice! It's not that expensive but taxes were added and it was kinda annoying.. My friends then told me about ELF and that the quality should be at least as good as Coastal and it was really cheap.. So I thought I'd try.
I've been lucky with my order I guess - I was a bit skeptical since it wasn't just cheap but REALLY cheap. I mean £3.50 for a mineral blush and £1.50 for nail polish and lipgloss??? But well.. it really works! And I'm really happy with my order!! ヾ(^∇^)

I bought Luscious liquid lipstick
I didn't notice they stated "vanilla Mint" flavor when I bought it, so I got really positively surprised when I got it! I kinda want to eat it since it tastes like my favorite candy ♪(ノ´∀`*)ノ

I bought the pink mineral blush (to the left) at first. It wasn't as pink as I wanted it.. more like rosy, but it lasts all day long compared to a cheap blush I bought from Rimmel that disappears as soon as you touch your cheeks >_>' I tried to order the more purple one, which I'm waiting for, as I hope it will turn out the color I want.
I bought some nail polishes as well but haven't tried them.

But well.. bye bye to savings since christmas presents also weight a lot (  ゚,_ゝ゚)

Winter's creeping up

It's getting colder and darker these days and I feel super lazy.. more than I am usual ヾ(-_-;) School is also kinda stressful at the moment - I'm just looking forward for the Christmas holidays..

Getting ready for the icy winter ^^'

Anyway - This weekend I went to J-popcon. Usually I'm not really into these conventions since I often feel bored and don't know what to do.. And I wasn't interested in cosplay either.. However me and Zuum decided to cosplay from Burst Angel since we liked the character designs and I thought I'd give cosplay another chance ^^' So I found myself working on my cosplay the last two months and actually enjoying it.. And YAY! I'm quite happy with my first cosplay \(^□^*) Pictures will come later...

Surprisingly I kinda liked this year's J-popcon - thanks to all my friends and nice people that were there... And the dealer room had Kpop for the first time - so I was really excited XD *fangirling* However there was this creepy guy cosplaying the cat-guy from Ouran High School Host Club and was creeping up at me all the time Ô___Ô Everytime Kami and/or Rose would look at me - kinda scared/alerted - and when I turned around the guy stood behind me with the cat-handdoll at my shoulder (ι´Д`)ノ *eeew*

Saturday I chose not to cosplay.. But did some makeup instead.

And the outfit I wore with my Usamimi ^3^
But it wasn't that fun not to cosplay since I felt out of place >_>' So I wore my cosplay again sunday - sadly without my partner >.< But we'll do a photoshoot or something I guess since she didn't get to wear her Meg cosplay for that long T.T And sorry to say but.. I'm really getting into cosplay now ToT I wan't to cosplay my favorite character from my favorite game... SOUL CALIBUR!!

I love Talim!! I think I'll cosplay her with the blond/white hair. She looks like a cute little rabbit >w< Me and Zuum are totally in Soul Calibur mode since we tried Soul Calibur IV at J-popcon - so she is going to cosplay Taki <3 I'm really excited about it but I guess it'll be a hell a lot of work >_< So I'll start soon ._. I'm already looking forward for Genki 2011 XD (yes I'm a geek)

Thanks people for a nice convention! I'm already super bored and don't know what to do (although I have a bunch of homework *cries*).. Concentration - where did you go!?

Ok bye for now and thanks for looking!

Yankee-kun to... fake nails!

Yesterday's outfit..
Curled hair and more natural looking lashes (even though you can't see them unless you're close >.>)
Yesterday I went out on a little "date" with my bf. We wanted to watch the new movie "Legend of the Guardians - The Owls of Ga'Hoole" and only Cinemaxx showed the movie that day so we went to the shopping center Fisketorvet before going to the movies. I bought a cardigan and a sweater/dress (it's actually navy even though it looks black)

I fell in love with both and they're also really warm and comfortable <3
After that we went to a restaurant to eat - and realized I'd dropped my cellphone ∑(O_O;) I was almost certain that I dropped it in the shop where I bought my clothes since it was the only time I took my jacket off.. I remembered hearing a "clock!" but when I looked on the floor there was nothing.. -_-' So annoying - but luckily I got it back today.. My mom wrote an email and told me they had called from the shop and my cell phone was there *phew*
But otherwise I LOVED the movie!!! I didn't really have any expectations even though I hated Happy Feet - but it was SO beautiful, epic and lovely at the same time that I was mesmerized from the beginning ^^' I'll definitely buy it when it comes out on dvd ♡\(・∀・*)

Friday my bf played a concert and I decided that this was the day to try wearing fake nails \(--)/
I got these from my friend Rose.. I found out I love fake nails - but hate the fact that I can't really do.. anything ヽ(o`皿′o)ノ But I'm getting more used to it.. And I wanted to do some big hair so I made a high ponytail, back-combed it and made a big side fringe :3 However I'd forgotten it was "J-dag" and I went out to the concert place alone....... But nothing happened besides lots of stares ζ~(∂_∂)~ζ
There were some REALLY mean and annoying people at the concert place -.- It was a rather small place and 4 bands played in total. It was all some sub-genre of rock but nothing like the music my bf's band was playing - so people were shouting things like "Go home and cry!" or just booo'ing.. Kinda astonishing thus I felt like beating their sorry asses... Fine if you don't like the music - but you don't need to act like a fucking retard... Anygay....

Today I finally finished Jo's top - I'm really pleased with the outcome! But I'm still a n00b since it's my first homemade cosplay >_>' And I have to color the fabric for the pants again in some other way since it turned out rosy-colored after drying.. Not stressful at all since there's less than a week for J-popcon and the pants is the most difficult part (*゜Д゜*) *cries*
I'm watching this J-drama right now "Yankee-kun to Megane-chan" it's really funny! And with one of my fav actors Narimiya Hiroki *fangirling* Based on the manga with some title (I haven't read) and kinda the regular highschool goes Yakuza crazy story with cheesy messages.. But I still enjoy it ヽ(* ̄o ̄*)>

Hope you all had a nice weekend!

Mr. (evil) Bunny~


It's already November I can't believe it..! Time's just passing by like a typhoon D: But I ended my October with a great Halloween party with my class. It was really fun..! One of my friends already made her costume (the Red Queen) for another party and reused it for our halloween, so me and Mew were thinking (or just me actually) "Why not make an Alice-group!?" and then we ran out to buy things for our costumes XD I made my own bunny ears, puff-tail and legwarmers.. I'm actually quite proud haha..! And Mew bought a dress which she demolished and made into an Alice (McGees) dress :D
I used the wig and lenses for my Jo cosplay >w< And did a rather heavy makeup since we wanted to do a more evil-Mcgee like Alice in Wonderland since it was halloween.

At the party there was a girl cosplaying the girl from the Grudge.. And she was really short and looked TOO MUCH like her (and so much into character!! Freaking scary!!) - so even though I haven't watched the movie I was scared as hell TToTT She followed me like a shadow with the scary eyes... *heeeelp*

Otherwise today I only had Japanese class and only 5 students (incl. me) showed up.. But today was CAKEDAY so we ate a lot of muffins and had fun (and difficulties) at translating the week's text.. I felt like dressing up a bit today since class was in the afternoon. Just casual makeup :3
Today I went to Fætter BR after class to look after guns for my Jo cosplay and found some Desert Eagle looking guns! "Perfect!" I thought. They were quite heavy actually for a toy and then I found out they could shoot with plastic balls D: I hope it's ok - it's just a toy anyway.. They were a bit expensive (100 DKR) and I have to get two!! But what the hell I thought and went up the counter to pay... when I noticed I'd forgotten my wallet........ DX Really embarrassing!! 

And I just bought my ticket for Jpopcon - looking forward to finishing my cosplays ^w^ Zuum and I just dyed - or actually painted since it was of synthetic material - our fabrics.. with success! We were so nervous it would fail and leaving us with even more stress and wasted money TToTT But luckily not, so I'll hopefully be finished soon!! I have to sew the top for Kari too - I bought a fluffy kind of fabric so it would look more "modern" and gyaru like - I hope XD

Thanks for looking!! (^ _ ^)/
