It's 2017, Lets make it cute!

It's that time again to reflect on the year and put some new plans for the next year. May they be dreams or plans. Maybe an event here and there.

This year has been pretty crazy for me. I have enjoyed it for the most part. I have had some stress's and bumps along the way like every other cutie out there! But I made it . No. WE MADE it! I did not know what 2016 had in mind nor did I make many plans myself .  However I did reach a few personal goals on my part and I also had a fun year of sponsored reviews and events. I also had a great time this year cosplaying. Meeting new folks and having lots of fun. I also for the 1st time in ages had a wonderful birthday. It was one of my highlights. Yup -billy nea mates here ( cause all my mates are no where near me or online.) Any way it still became an day and I felt so blessed to spend it with my own sister who knows me better than I know myself. 

I did some crazy things this year. I shaved off my hair...( ever wonder why I was wearing more wigs of late haha!) I took part in a inflatable 5K fun obstacle course ! I also had an amazing opportunity with Cutesy Kink where I designed my very own wig line! I would love to expand on that one day but who knows what the next few years will hold!?  I did more modelling and photos shoots this year , I hope that this will continue well into 2017. This year I was fully accepted into the awkward mom crew at school (LMAO!) am classed as the Kawaii awkward one .  I now go out on mom dates! ( whats that all about!?) Maybe I will blog post about those dates some time . Its like so strange to me haha.

Back in April, my busiest month  I was a guest at a Gaming convention, Which was the most amazing thing ever. I keep all my memories from it treasured even though I lost my voice  and I was granted to be press at over conventions. I was at so many conventions this year am not quite sure how I managed them! I was also invited to a few events in London but alas being the Kawaii Mom I have my restrictions!

I have also enjoyed the company of my dear friends who have stuck with me this year and loved meeting brand new ones who I also hope will stick around in 2017!




To round up the near end of the year I put my energy in to helping out a local lot , made up of cosplayers and the most friendly bunch of geeks/ nerds/ costumers/ cosplay folks you could ever meet. This lot with the help of the organisers and team from CHAS do a road show collection to raise money before the event they hold where all profits go to CHAS- a children's charity. The group together get out in the public eye and raise as much money as possible and then at the event - which is a sci fi ( but not limited to sci fi ) Convention. I have had the pleasure to join at many of these collection days and its win - win. You cosplay , you enjoy it , you meet folks and hang out with such a fun team and its all for the children who need our support and help.

Over all I think 2016 has been kind to me. I feel very blessed to have had such a well balanced year. I hope that 2017 will bring more new opportunities , new things such as events and much much more!
I also wish each and every one of you a wonderful kawaii happy new year .

Hyper Japan - Part 2


Hello every one and yay, am on part two of my Hyper Japan adventure.
It has been so hard to outline such a huge event and try to put it all into words. Any way this part is all about the music, J- fashion, cosplay and Kawaii things!  Cause you all know, How much I love Kawaii~ Hehe! I might even have a third part to this, I really did take way to many photos~ whoops!
(Image heavy post.)


So the stages were the place to be at Hyper Japan , I really could not say, which was the stage I enjoyed the most cause they were all entertaining in every aspect of Japanese culture. We had Fashion shows, Dances,and lots of super fun.

Glasgow Comic Con Fun


Hey every cutie, How are you all doing?
Last weekend I was through in Glasgow, I decided last month to get a ticket for the Glasgow comic con and check it out. I have not been to this event before. Also I promised to the Marshmallow Dreams Maids who had a stall there to borrow my instant Camera for taking cute photos with the customers and con goers. I did not dress up as I find travel and lugging a kit about with me is bad enough. But I was pretty colourful in my oufit, yuno just keeping it Kawaii. 
Any how everything got off to a good start from meeting cosplayer's at my local station but when I got to station for my second train, it seemed the trains were all messed up- Gahh!! But not only mine but my Lolita friends trains got delayed and cancels too? ehh!?
Lucky for me I got to Glasgow with no further problems and meet up with my friend at the station to then head to the event and meet up with more friends. Because we were running late we seemed to skip having to wait in line and were able to walk in get our events wrist band with out hanging about in a line for ages which was pretty good as the event itself looked pretty busy. 
Within the space of a few minutes I bumped into many folks I already knew with was pretty cool as well as meeting a fellow photographer, the event was spread out over 3 buildings, once we explored them all, found the maids to hand over the camera , we then had a drink and snack and then explored again for a bit. I found most folks were in the main place for buying merch and comics, this was much more a western Comic convention however the cosplays were not limited to that as I spied a few anime cosplayers.

Before I knew it we were heading off for lunch then returned back to the event as we wanted to stay for the cosplay competitions, on our way we spotted a stunning cosplay. Of Maleficent so I asked if was cool to take her photo with the lolita's - she was soo cool , we also encouraged her to join in the cosplay contest. 






 We also meet up with fellow lolitas and undercover Maids  at the event too. It was rather odd seeing them in Yukatas instead of their lolita or maid outfits! hehe

Playing with my ''Camera bag'' selfies.



I got many photos from the event and the cosplay contest /masquerade. So I will share them with this link here. Photo's found here!

Over all I had a great time , I just had great company with me and met so many familair faces it was just so nice. I found it a bit hard to take photos at this event cause one I was using my new lens and second cause I was having to much fun. Because I have a HUGE event later this months, yes Hyper Japan!! I tried to avoid spending lots of money. huhuhuh. But I did by myself a wee something - a Funko Fluttershy and a pink GCC pin. I also took some fun instant photos too. After the event and seeing the all the entered cosplays four of us went out to get some bubble tea, something I have not had before it was so nice, am really happy they showed me and helped me pick my first bubble tea. I think I will be making a point to get one next time am in glasgow again.
After getting our drinks we spilt up and we headed for our train, It was nice to have some company on the train and because saturday was the day that Sailor moon Crystal was released , and both me and Layla being Sailor moon fans, We sat on the train watching it on my Phone haha!! 


Laters, Tartan <3

Marshmallow Dreams Maids Event


Hello every one! My goodness I am afraid I have not been blogging as much. I have been very unwell and super busy at the same time. Wooah! But that aside today I shall be sharing the photos from the Marshmallow Dreams Maids event that was on last Sunday! It was a super early start for me as the event was in Glasgow at the Geek Retreat, meaning I had to get 2 trains. 



I was packed the night before and ready for the event, I was their official Kawaii Photographer for the day.
So, sorry but I was not waiting on the tables or doing any maid work this time! Maybe next time. huhuh?
It was super fun, cute cakes to fun and games , with the most adorable maids ever.
In this post am going to let all my photos from the event do the talking. Heehee.

yummy snacks and pretty cute back packs on the maids too!
