Quick Fix 1

20170506_234809

I’ve been quite inspired lately to not only make my own clothes from scratch but to just… update my wardrobe with pieces that I already have but want to change a little bit.

An example is this pink dress here! It’s a nice stretchy dress I bought maybe a year ago for less than $10 from a random store in the mall. I got it because I do like the color even though I was pretty skeptical about the lace part on top. Ever since I bought it I had tried to wear it out but it just seemed too… old and proper. The neckline wasn’t actually that flattering on me so I decided to change it up!

Since spring is here and I wanted more strappy dresses I could pair with a cover-up to make it more elegant. And with summer right around the corner I could just wear it with a belt and sandals to have a casual outfit!

I just seam ripped the lace part off and took the bias from that to make the straps. I cut the neckline a bit more into a V shape and finished it off to match the rest of the dress.

It’s a simple fix, took me about 2 hours while playing D&D with some friends through skype! Now instead of wondering how to wear it, I’ll have an easy time pairing it with jackets to get out of the house~

I’ve been loving pinks again actually! I made a floral skirt which I want to do a proper photoshoot after I get through some exams.

HTC Commercial

Cause.. yea this happened xD

I had an opportunity to be an extra in this commercial, I’m even listed int he part-goers :D Now was it a real party? Eh of course not. But it was something interesting to be a part of and although it took up a huge chunk of my day for some blurry spots and half my face… it was still pretty cool! I met a lot of new people~

+1 to you if you can spot me in a few spots~ Although I think you’re only able to see me in 2… xD

It’s really weird watching the commercial cause I saw it shot out of order haha. So it just seems awkward to me!

Whelp. Other than that I got to talk to a few of the players which was cool. No, I’m not buddy buddy with any of them. Although I kinda wished they didn’t assume I just know who they are >.> Cause I like introductions and no I don’t know who you are unless you introduce yourself xD

Would I do this again? Mmm… maybe. I’m not one for the camera (I say that but I do fashion shows? wat?!) but I would def bring a book and a fully charged tablet next time lol!

Still not sure if I’m making corsets remotely right… but they seem to be doing what corsets seem to be doing right o.o I even hand stitich it to keep it together for the steel boning!! Anyways this is my sister’s prom dress corset~ I used just extra grey lining and extra black fabric which I believe is from the kirito cosplay… and then some extra black lace I use in bow making :D But isn’t the satin fabric so.. wonderful?! Its really burgundy but for some odd reason I took the picture in terrible lighting and it looks orange to me… Also I got fabric that has some sort of tape on it. ugh. But luckily soap and warm water takes it out :D like my butterfly pins? Love them~

Anywaaayss. Since that’s all done with I finally get to work on AX and designing! It’s hard juggling the two >> Working on it though~ And remember guys, always wash your fabrics!

Elementa Fashion Show

And welcome to the sexy legs :DDDD

MY FASHION SHOOWWW!! Well. one of them :D SO glad to have a video of it, kind of sad I messed up… but in my defense I only got to practice it … once. And I was stressing out from quite a bit of things… >> But the girls walked wonderfully and I’m glad :D

Heather edited the video! She’s taking a lovely video editing class so she’s been taking our trips and editing/filming them~ Gee actually filmed this fashion show on his go pro but the good spot was taken by a fancy videographer so the positioning made it so gee couldn’t actually see the screen.. but for not really looking I think it turned out good :D

Anyways.. Happy first of June~ CRUNCH TIME MONTH. Not sure how much updates you’ll get out of me from here to the end of august… busy busy o.o but I’m glad~

Frilly frills of a skirt

Created a ruffly underskirt for a little project I’ve been working on~ I tried it with the outfit I was wearing that day and wala! More girlie version of me XDD I need to really update more but it seems like errands and games are just taking over my life T.T Games mainly. I may have to cut back now >> That or just work twice as hard to justify it! lol!!

So I actually go back to job hunting every now and then when I think “hmm.. money. yea. that sounds good” and as I go through the motions I find myself hating it a little bit more each time. And Yes what I want to do is much harder and in the realm of the unknown but.. eh. you know what. I think I can live with just taking a leap of faith. So that’s what happens each time I go and actively seek a regular 8-5 job employment. By the time I find 3rd pratical job for myself I’ve already lost about 80% of my drive. Something about just employing for the sake of money just hurts a little. but money drives what we do and passion is a luxury. I believe tho. I HAVE FAITH! That my designs will come to life and one day I can be a part of people’s magical days (weddings/events/etcetc)

Oh! like my new cardigan? Bought it mainly for my sister but it’s grown on me >> so I’ve been wearing it xD I thought it was more her style but I guess not, well. luckily for me it’s getting warmer (ha… I say that but it’s been raining randomly)

Anyways. hope you like~ I really want to update more on what I’ve been working on but can’t just yet T.T
