Ariel

Hello lovelies,

I am proud to share all of my Ariel pictures with you today. Most of the time I hate my cosplay after I am done because I spot too many differences or I didn't sew it nicely enough but strangely for Ariel I don't feel those things. Instead I really like that cosplay. Imagine that.
All the pictures were made in Munich by my dear friend and photographer Souly from Blur of color.
If you want to see how I did the cosplay, here is the blog entry.


 


 



This is my favourite picture!




 








How do you like the pictures?

All the best,

Blue dress

Hello lovelies,

I was at a wedding last weekend and for that occasion I made myself a cute dress. The theme was blue and silver and I really have no blue or silver dress. What a shock. Luckily I found an amazing fabric at my local fabric store.

My pattern looked like this:
The pattern on the left is for the back. 

As for the skirt part I almost never do a paper pattern but draw directly on the fabric, cut, and then hope for the best.


I pinned everything together and checked the fit.
Afterwards I sewed in the lining and checked the fit again. The bottom pictures are already close to what it will look like afterwards. The pins hold the outer fabric and the inner lining in place.


Of course I also had to try it on. Remember the pins? Yes, ouch.

I made the lining too short infront (if you look closely on the first pictures of this batch you'll see the lighter stripe ending at boob height) and therefore added some more lining.

I didn't want to make it visible from the outside and therefore I couldn't sew it the standard way because the double fold whould have been visible. But this method worked pretty well for me, although it doesn't look that nice from the inside. But no one will see the inside.

I used blue thread to sew everything. Again it looks good from the outside.


I forgot to take pictures of the seam which was the step before adding the zip. Oh well, never mind. I sewed in the zip but wasn't able to align both sides evenly. Booh.
But I finished the dress at this part.
Well, almost.
I decided to add a cute bow at the back.

I wore the dress for the wedding and it was a big hit. My make-up reminded me a bit of wonder woman, which was (un)intentional.









All the best,

Auris Lothol

Lolita Teekränzchen June

Hello lovelies,

last Sunday was out monthly lolita teekränzchen again. This time we visited an old and traditional Viennese Cafe called Hummel. I really liked the decor and how it simultaneously looks old-fashioned and modern.

The food was very delicious and the home-made lemonade were good too. I can only recommend the cranberry lemonade and the apple strudel.


I snatched a picture of dear Emily with her food. I really liked her hairstyling.
And here is the rest of the group.
I made the picture when I was going, so there may be some people missing who came later.
I wanted to keep it more casual and picked my bodyline skirt and an infanta blouse.
The shoes are from Rosemarie seoir and I think the flower crown is from primark. But I'm not so sure about that.



Maja is really photogenic. Too bad my other cat isn't.
I used glitter in my make-up and instead of mastix/other glue I used lip gloss. And it worked perfectly fine as well!


 Have a nice week,

all the best,

Auris Lothol
