3rd jfashion Bring & buy in Vienna

Hello lovelies,

yesterday was the 3rd Japanese fashion bring and buy in Vienna. And once again it was held at Weberknecht but this time we had all of the cellar for ourselves. There was even a "chill out zone" and I think Matthias and I sat there for a few hours.

All in all I sold two of my six items I brought there and bought four new ones.


 That's my new chiffon bonnet from Angelic pretty. I love everything chiffon, so it was perfect. I'd love to own this cutie in white too.

 The skirt is super soft and has a beautiful flower print. I think it's from Axes femme? I am currently wearing it to work and can't check..

 That cute blouse is from a Chinese shop, magic tea time. I love how frilly it is.

My auto focus had problems with the shiny plastic and therefore I couldn't really take a good picture of it. But those are tights/stockings from Grimoire.  I will probably wear them rather for cult party kei than for lolita.

It was super nice meeting all the people in the community again. I wore my swankiss style outfit for the event and it was difficult zipping me up because my boobs are still too big for tiny swankiss dresses? I think they look super squished...


 I would only recommend this dress to anyone who has boobs under 86cm..
Top and dress are from the Swankiss fukubukuro 2016. The shoes are from Jesus Diamante. I bought them 2015 at closet child.

 Selfie with Matthias as we waited for the metro. It was so, so cold that day.



And some more selfies with V. and M. My phone camera is definitely not the best, plus I have the same smile for all of my pictures... XD.


A nice posing picture and a fun picture. Much beauty. such wow.

Afterwards Matthias and I went to grab some sushi and hot soup. It was a delicious end to a good day. I really want to wear jfashion more often and small events like these give me life.

Have a nice week,

Aurîs

Lolita Meet-up in Vienna

Hi lovelies,

last weekend on the 10th of April our Viennese Lolita group had our regular meet-up again. The weather cooled down dramatically a few days before the meet-up and therefore everyone had to wear coats. Bye bye spring coord.

Half of us took of our jackets and coats for this picture. Actually there were about 27 signed up for that even but about 10 didn't show up due to illness or personal reasons. I hope we will have big meet-ups again in summer when the temperatures are better.

For this spring event, as I thought before it cooled down, I wanted to wear my new OP. It was a shame that I had to cover it with my cardigan.
The OP is called Emperor's nightingale and is from the Chinese brand R-series. I remember reading the Chinese fairy tale of the emperor's nightingale when I was little and therefore I was of course super hyped when i saw the name of the OP and the wonderful print.



My coord consisted of:
OP: Emperor's nightingale by R-Seroes
Cardigan: Liz Lisa
Shoes: Bodyline
Headpiece: selfmade
Wig: Lockshop
Stocking: ebay offbrand

Picture by Karin
Picture by Rob Detoyato

Picture by Lisa Zweirlein
My favourite part of the outfit was my bird family on my head.



I only made one (good) selfie in the restaurant we went after the Mozarthaus museum.

The filter is super strong but I love how the lamp looks like part of my headdress.

All the best and have a nice week,

Aurîs

Fashion coords and ootd

Hello lovelies,

for only one or two selfies or pictures from outfits I won't make a seperate blog entry but rather upload it on Instagram, facebook or twitter.
So here will be a list of selfies, fashion coords and outfit of the days, in a chronological order.

11.2.2016
A full innocent world coord, with my tomcat Raha interfearing again. He likes to be on my pictures.
I wore this for a cold day and since then I can't find these shoes anymore. I know they must be somewhere...

12.3

This is a very dark Larme coord. The top is from Swankiss, everything else is offbrand..
The whole outfit felt too simple for me. This was also the first time I wore the top and I am thinking about keeping it (it's still on my sale list) but it is growing on me.

1.04.16

A work selfie! I am always so bored at work..meh. But soon I'll change my job, although I still don't know what I want to do.
The cardigan is from Liz lisa and the JSK is from Innocent world. The headbow is from Btssb and the blouse is from Angelic pretty.
And here is the full coord:

4.4.16


This is another, I am bored work selfie. The necklace was a gift from Yvy. I bought the floral dress in Bukarest (a really amazing city.) I like the colours of this picture, it really pops out.
I handstitched the pearls on the top myself.

7.6
I was bored and waited for the massage to begin...
It was a bad massage and in the end I was really happy to have had a voucher. The necklace is Hermione's time-turner. I am a real potterhead, although my house would be a mixture between Hufflepuff and Slytherin, whereas I prefer Hufflepuff.

8.4
Another, I am so bored at work. MEH
I didn't manage to have that colour sheme from my selfie from 4.4. but nevermind.


And that was it,

all the best,

Aurîs

English tea time

Hi lovelies,

last week was not a very good week. I actually wanted to go to Animuc but my friend (and driver) got very sick and we had to cancel everything. I worked so hard on re-doing my cosplay, I was in a fould mood after that. But my friend also had to cancel the convention because of her work, so it did not turn out well for both of us.
Nevertheless, Ion is nearly done and we want to do a photoshooting soon. The only problem is the distance but I am sure we will find time to visit each other in May. Or June. Or on a long weekend.

So on Saturday I was home, cleaning and writing new CVs and in the afternoon Matthias and I went out to Little Britain. It is one of my favourite cafes in Vienna. The food is delicious, the staff is a bit slow but super nice. I was also there for my birthday. And after one month of absence we went there again and the shop owner even recognized me again!

We ate and drank so much, I was rolling out of the cafe afterwards.

 I had a huge caramel hot chocolate (yes, I am still on a diet but once a week I eat what I want..) and to be honest, it was not sweet enough so I put some more sugar in it. I have no problem with eating sugar at all and things can not be sweet enough (although japanese stuff was already hard on the limit) but give me something with only a slight bitterness and I can't eat it. 

And this was my "flammkuchen". Super tasty!

And we ordered the etagere again and stuffed ourselves with warm scones and sandwiches and cake. I can really recommend this dish if you ever plan to go to this place.

My outfit for this day was simple, at least for me, but when we left the cafe to go home, a man with a strong Viennese accent yelled "Die hot a puppn kladl on!" (She is wearing a doll's dress), which I found insanely funny. 

Jsk and Blouse: Innocent world
Petticoat: Classical Puppets
Rest: Taobao or offbrand

All the best and have a nice week,

Aurîs

Ion wip part two

Hello lovelies,

I was sick all weekend and spent my time on my sofa drinking tea, watching series and hand sewing. I finally finished the second season of Sleepy hollow and the character development of Katrina was so weird, that I really disliked the finale, even though I like the time-travel story.

Nevertheless, here is my progress:
 Here is the overtop and the top. The weird stitches on the black fabic is from stitching the pearls and rhinestones.

 Close up from the top. It is still not finished and actually I need to add more rhinestones or rocailles but I ran out of pearls. The shop where I normally buy my stuff is closed until Thursday. Just my luck. But I will check out another shop in Vienna today.

 Front and back of the over-sleeves. The back needs no embellishment I decided (and because I am already super lazy).
 And a close up. I really like how it looks like compared to my first try. I am really ashamed of what I did back then...gluing fake leather was not my best idea.

 Still not finished with this piece either. The left part should look like the right part.

And here is a close up.

All the best,

Aurîs

Ion - Trinity blood

Hello lovelies,

maybe you remember my wip posts from 2013. Well, my friend who cosplayed Radu and I didn't manage to wear these costumes together for three years (since we debuted them on connichi 2013). But this will change!
We are currently re-doing the cosplays and we want to wear them for Animuc next week. I am super excited because I really like the costume except for the details. And I am re-doing the details and I think it looks much better.
I will sick but this is the perfect excuse to lay on the sofa the whole day, cuddle my cats and hand sew all the rhinestones and pearls.
Before starting the cosplay again I counted my orange rhinestones and to my dismay, I didn't have a lot of them left. So I checked for shops in Europe but couldn't find what I wanted. In my distress I checked the shop where I ordered three years ago and they were not only still in business but also still sold the exact same stones I needed. BLESS THEM!
Therefore I ordered three packs of rhinestones on Monday and got them yesterday on Thursday. European sellers might be more expensive but at least I get the ware in under a week.



I am super slow but I am in the process of finishing the crown..
This is how the old one looked like:
It's just pieces of gold leather glued to the crown. It looks okay but I can do better...

And this is the new crown:
 It looks so much better, doesn't it??

I handstitched all the pearls and the beads. Even the gold lace has beads even though they are not really visible.

Of course I also get bored...
She reminds me of a Steven Universe cat, even though I didn't see the show?

I am sitting at work now and this is my next step. I will add pearls to the big sone and small rocailles to the three others. Of course the lace also has to be handstitched but hey, nobody is at work and I can sew all I want. Plus I get paid for that, in a way...

All the best and have a nice weekend,

Aurîs

LBM 2016

Hello lovelies,

I missed writing entries because I have been to Leipzig from last Wednesday to Sunday. I arrived home at 4am Monday morning, completely dead and exhausted.

My friend slippeddee had an artist booth at the book fair and Yvy and me helped out. It was really fun and I also met some people I haven't seen in ages. It just felt like unpaid work because I got up early in the morning, we all had seperate hotels, and tried to be at the venue before 10am at least on Thursday and Friday, on Saturday and Sunday I even woke up at 6am to be at the venue before 9am.

I didn't bring any cosplay with me, but instead I wore Lolita or Larme on all the days.  It was super comfy!

Thursday: 

I didn't expect it to be very busy on a Thursday but surprisingly it was.
My outfit:
Jsk: Souffle song
Headdress: selfmade
Shoes: Jesus diamante
Gloves: Souffle song (I think I forgot to wear them for the pictures)
Blouse: thrifted, vintage





After the convention we went to the old city of Leipzig, at least we thought it was the historical site?, and found a really good Vietnamese restaurant to eat. They really had delicious food.


Friday:

Friday was not that busy! Wuhu. My hat was a bit too big for the small booth and I bumped into the table a lot when I tried to get something from underneath it.
My outfit:
OP: Yolanda
Hat: vintage, selfmade
necklace: Dreamy bows
Shoes: DreamV
Tights: madame chocolat




I think I fell into bed that day, completely exhausted already. I only had some salad for dinner but the salad was super good. I really envy Germans their supermarket. Our supermarket are small and don't even have a quarter of the items German supermarket has. Meh.

Saturday:

I got up at 6 and went to the convention earlier than usual because I didn't want to be in a full tram again. Also, Saturday is always the busiest day, so getting in the Tram at 9:00~9:30 would have been a small wonder already. So I took the tram at 8.30 and the tram was not even half full. Awesome.

My outfit:
dress: liz lisa
Shoes & Earrings: Swankiss
Rest: offbrand, Claire's





I really liked my outfit. There was one creepy guy who wanted a picture with me and though I was 16? Well, I'm 27.

 This is how her booth looked like. I can only recommend that Doujinshi to you. It is really good and pornlicious.

Sunday:

There were still a lot of people on Sunday but compared to Saturday it was nothing at all.
My outfit:
jsk: angelic pretty dramatic rose
Peignoir: selfmade
headdress: taobao



There was this cool guy in an old uniform. I just had to take a picture of him:


I even had time to take pictures with other friends!

Selfie with Yvy as Hannibal and Aoka.

 And another selfie with Dee and Yvy.

Thank you everyone who visited me/us at the booth. Thank you for your time and thanks for the fun.

I all hope you had a nice LBM or weekend,

I will update with a new (and old) project, so stay tuned,


Aurîs
