Dokomi 2012

This weekend the convention Dokomi took place in Düsseldorf!!
I had a ticket for the weekend and went both days in lolita. Oh, it was also the first time, that I visited the Dokomi, so I can't compare it to former ones.
But, I think, it was pretty awesome, even if it was very crowded and warm inside the building. And sometimes we even lost our way, because the con was held in a fair building, which was quite roomy xD

I went there with a friend, who cosplayed Chopper from One Piece, and some.. other guys, I'd more consider as more distant friends, I don't have much to do with them. But otherwise, I'd have been alone at the con, oh no D: I had a great time anyway, even if we spent much time searching for the others, because we split up from time to time (they disappeared -.-)...

Nevertheless, I met many great lolitas, which I know from former meet-ups <3

We spent both days mostly with looking at the different booths for anime and manga merchandise, playing videogames and on Sunday we even watched the cosplay championship. Most performances were awesome, I could never do that, standing on stage in front of so many people and acting ^___^ So they have my full respect!

Sadly, I hardly took photos D: Only two of the main room for the booths,

, one of my friend Ramona, the Chopper cosplayer,  with a Jewelry Bonney, also from One Piece,

and photos of my outfits, sorryyy! On Saturday, I took it, when I came home,

Dress, headbow, socks: Angelic Pretty
Shoes, wig: Bodyline
Small bow: V.aroc.K
Rest: Primark, Bijou Brigitte, Six, H&M, Accessorize

on Sunday before I left the house.

Dress, headbow, wig: Bodyline
Rest: Primark, H&M, Bijou Brigitte, Accessorize

The only thing I bought at the con is a poster. At least I didn't waste too much money on stuff I don't really need :D I hope, I can go to Dokomi 2013 as well and will meet such amazing people as I did this year!

Father's day in Maastricht

As I mentioned in my last post, I want to tell you something about our day in Maastricht.
My parents decided to make a trip there for Father's day last Thursday. And I have to say, Maastricht is a beautiful city! There are old buildings and many, many domes.

On that day, there was also a flea market, where antique furniture, tableware, jewellery,  handbags, etc. were sold. They had lots of pretty stuff and I wanted at least one thing (I'll tell you about that later^^).

After we had some fries, we walked along the shopping passages and went into the first of several churches. And surprise, it wasn't an actual church anymore! Inside were a bookstore and a café, very cool :3

They had delicious cheesecakes there, of course also other ones and sandwiches, but the cheesecakes looked most appetizingly. My mum chose a lime cheesecake and I went for a caramel oreo cheesecake *___* They tasted very sweet and yummy ^____~

We continued our walk and on another place was a funfair and behind that two other domes.

This one wasn't very pretty inside .__. Just grey and it seemed somehow unfinished

This one was better! It was bigger and had an atrium inside
We were really lucky with the weather, the sun was shining all day long and it was fairly warm (nothing to compare to the night before >___<). 


Another church we visited, but this one was really dark and kinda oppressive inside

We walked around until 4 o' clock. Then I was tooooo tired... I looked really wiped out that day, because I slept the night before in my best friends car in front of a club for one hour!! o___o That's why I know, that it was so cold xD 
We went together to the Kabuki RockStyle, a JRock disco, at the "Kultkeller" in Oberhausen. 
He decided to drive by car, but the trains the next morning went on really unfortunate hours. The first one would have gone at 6.30 a.m., but the Kabuki ended at 4.30! Besides he drank some alcohol, so he couldn't drive yet anyway. So we slept in the car.. not very comfortable. I pulled the blanket over my head, because the light from a lantern was sooo bright, but it didn't really help^^
So I slept the least and next morning we drove  home.. I was there at 9.15, decided to join my parents on the trip, took a shower, changed and got ready, so we were on our way at 10.15 again :D 
I wasn't tired anymore by that time, but shortly before Maastricht, I dozed off :D It was quite hard for me at the beginning to walk around, but the sun and the walking itself let me forget about my recurring weariness.
At home I slept from 6.30 p.m. until 6.20 a.m. the next morning xDD

Aah, but before we drove home, I stopped by at the flea market once again to look for something, I could bring home with me. And there it was! Something I want for a reeeeally long time - a dress form! 
It is formed out of baroque metal and we got it for 50€ :3 Now I can display my dresses properly. There are also hooks, so I can hang e.g. necklaces on it and it has an opening at the back, so I can stuff something inside, scarves, for example.

Currently, I've put the black Bodyline dress on the left on it. I'm sooo happy to have one now! ♥

Market in Venlo

Hey guys! ^___^

This morning I went with my parents to the market in Venlo. I definitely have to shop there for fabrics sometime ^__^ They had pretty ones with floral patterns... But I got some tights at the market, mostly plain black ones, because many of my old ones got holes in them and I had to throw them away .__.
I wore just a very simple outfit with the dress from Primark.

Back at home I tried out, if the dress fits a petticoat underneath. And it did! I think, that's great, I can wear inspired and Casual Lolita coords with it this way!

 I've been to the hairdresser on Wednesday, so my bangs are a bit short >__<
My hair is pretty short in the back now, too, I really like it... somehow, I want to be even shorter xD

Aaah, and there's been another purchase in Venlo, at Bijou Brigitte I found a necklace for my Abigala-outfit, that means, if I don't find something even better ^__^'
