A catch up and Insomnia Scotland

Ahhh. I forgot to post about one of my most exciting event this year! -My bad.

Any way back in April, I went to the 1st Insomnia Gaming festival in Scotland. Which was rather exciting. I never done a Gaming festival before and I had been invited by the cosplay team as a Judge for the cosplay masquerade and community guest.  It was such a huge event and took up all the space at the events place at EICC in Edinburgh.
I was in cosplay, There was a fair few others in cosplay also. I was both Sailor Moon and Asuna from Sword Art Online. I also had a personal photographer with me the full weekend and did lots of photo shoots. As well I was playing , trying ans testing out lots of games. I also was on stage with the rest of the cosplay crew and we did a panel on Cosplay . And  I also met some new folks and hung out with fellow cosplayers. I really enjoyed my time at the event and I have a vlog and video on my you tube for you all to check out. As I kinda forgot of all the stuff that went on you can check it out on those!




As well I have been busy with a few other things, Such as modelling wigs from the amazing UK kawaii fashion store Cutesty Kink!   And am still working my way through the shoots and images of such cute and harajuku style like wigs. Which as so worth checking out. Also I have been working on some clothing model work with Cutesy Kink as well. Something I have not done before- As I only did wigs in the past! So it was a learning curve for me.
So I had fun with cute tops and jumpers that look like they have come right off the streets of Harajuku and the other stuff is the Pusheen range of cute and adorable tops! Which every thing is so cute and super soft when worn.



What else is new with me? Well not very much apart form modelling and indulging in Kawaii fashions and make up. School has been pretty demanding and with meetings and appointments so I really not had much time to get anything else sorted. However am in hope to get some more blog posts up for you all really soon and share kawaii stuff with you all . So this is a pretty short and sweet post!

So am gona catch you guys later!
Later Kawaii Crew

It's all about Kawaii Wigs insight/ review - Candy Kei Wigs

Hey every one!
I think some of you might have noticed a lot going on in my little Kawaii world. I have had such an exciting year so far. And I know it's just going to keep on getting better.

As many of you are aware am a keen wig wearer. I love my wigs. Wigs have been my must have things since I came across them and with not being able to dye my hair - I now can have any shade of colour I wish for. I love wearing wigs and they can really bring an outfit together and make  a outfit pop. It has been a long term wish for me to do some kind of related work with them. Which is why, I review a lot of wigs and would hunt about looking for wig online shops.
This year I have been asked work in collaboration with the UK retailer Cutesy Kink who have announced their own line of wigs called '' Candy Kei.''  I was sent a sample wig to try out and was required to send back feed back on my thoughts on the wigs. which I can say my feed was all positive.  The sample wig was great lovely shade, nice shape and no problems at all as well it was priced well too in the online store. I really put it through some testing from being worn out about about to rough handling , styling and brushing. I was really happy with the product.  I have even washed the wigs even though they are brand new but to put them through the test the wig didn't lose any shape or body.  As said really put them through a lot to test them, pulling at them seeing how strong they were and checking how neat the insides were. And with all of that barely any loss of wig fibres! And soon was super excited to know they were going forward to sell the wigs after hearing my feed back. YAY!



Then the most exciting opportunity came about. Which was Me, yes ME to be the new model and face of the wig range. With this being something I have been wanting to do ,since I came across wigs.  I want to share how fashionable and kawaii wigs can really be. In the past I enter contests but I was never one to win with'' likes'' cause at the end of the day I am not as popular as the others who took part, Or it might of meant to travel over seas or the company's was not interested in me cause am not very model like. That aside I was really excited about being asked.



You might go on to then think my reviews on the wigs will be biasses cause am modelling them but  that is not the case , they are good wigs for the money . Cutesy Kink and I have done 3 sets of shoots now and each wig has been amazing to work with, Easy to care for and to wear on set when shooting. The range is growing and its so nice to see a retailer, who cares deeply about J- Fashion to also stock a vast range of wigs that can go hand and hand with the styles and fashions. (Oh an of course every day wear and day to day styles as well! ) I think this is a added bonus as some company's might not share such a passion . It is also a delight to a UK retailer selling wigs that you can trust!
Anyway I really wanted to share my thoughts on the new wigs and share my new project.

Till later's!

A Sunshine Daisy Model


So a wee while back The lovely Lady who runs The Sunshine Daisy on Esty was kind enough to let me model for her Esty shop.
So I got to work picking out a outfit and such and was very excited to have lots of fun on shot with the items.
Unlucky for me and the photographer the camera battery died on us,Leaving us a bit gutted and lack of photos,then Photographer has some Dog issues with the family pet falling ill and extra shift needing done so the finished work took a bit longer.
We have decided to re-shoot and become very creative with out next date to do this also but here are the Photos showing off the Kawaii Products!

Bow and Accessories from The Sunshine Daisy


**All Images belong to The Photographer Shona Gentles Photography and The Sunshine Daisy.**

Hope you all like the images and keep up to date with me on face book

But cause I won it,I need to rethink what I would like for my birthday.

The Queen of the Gothic Realm

Lady Amaranth is a Alternative Gothic Model,She is the most elegant beautiful woman I have ever seen in my whole life,I came across her work through the online shop,The Gothic Shop then on many other pages,
I became a fan on her Facebook and have been amazed by her work,no work is not the work its Art that she has produced and its the most stunning Art ever ! 
>w<
I contacted Lady Amaranth and asked if she would be kind enough to let me feature her and her work in her Blog,I was so excited to get a lovely message back from her saying it was quite all right to do so,Bless her.

I give there the title The Queen of the Gothic Realm she is well known among Gothic Fans and Goth's.
She has a portfolio that has such a vast range of Gothic Fashion to Fantasy images.Every piece of Art she has done is wonderful.I can see why so many new Models wish to be like her.
Lady Amaranth has also been featured in many well known Magazines such as Unscene,Alt Fashion and Fea Magazine.

You maybe wondering why I picked Lady Amaranth,To me she is a inspiration and through her work she has shown that Gothic Fashion has such beauty in each photo.
She can take on any theme and make it work.

Lady Amaranth has attended the WGW (Whitby Goth Weekend) in the past,A small sea side village that holds a Gothic even twice a year.This place is a place where I went for many years on holiday,I hold it dearly in my heart with the sea side and Gothic tales of Ghosts and even the Dracula walk,Its called to many Goths,Fans and know Models over the years.
I'm actually surprised I never met her down there!?
 >__<

Whitby was the place that got me into the Gothic Scene when I was a Teenager.I bought My 1st Spiked Dog Collar there with my Dad (Still have it!) and then many Gothic outfits,So I find that with having this old fondness of Gothic wear and new interest in Lolita it makes it easy for me to mix the two to create lots of ideas for my own outfits.

I also think that Lady Amaranth can even do her own Lolita inspired work with ease,as she suits Lace and Ribbons with her Gothic outfits and her Make up is done so well with such detail and skill.Not only is she a model she is a Web Designer and Writer too.
So here are some Pieces of her Art I wanted to Share with you.

(Please note I do Not own any of these Images these belong to the Photographer/Designer and Lady Amaranth.)

''Gothic Fashion has gone from its post punk roots, through velvet and fishnet and now many people incorporate historical elements into it. 
I find each evolution has something to offer and for myself particularly indulge in the more elegant variations. 
Many of my outfits actually contain Elegant Gothic Lolita pieces, and I will always wonder into stores and sites selling the style as I find the attention to detail and quality tends to be far higher than some of the high street Gothic brands. 
However, I’m not too keen on the more colourful pieces or those that tend a little too far towards a child/doll-like image. While it is visually stunning, and can make for beautiful themed photographs, they wouldn’t me my choice for normal attire. 
Lolita fashions, to me, imbue the wearer with traits that don’t match my artistic expression and is indeed a scene unto itself. 
I have found though, that the cybergoth and UK Goth scene in particular have also adopted some of these “cute” fashion statements. 
Bright pink being favoured, as well as handbags made from toys even while the rest of the outfit may be of a more traditional Goth fare. 
This juxtaposition is perhaps a statement that the wearer is not wanting to be seen bending to the conventions of their scene by adopting this idiosyncrasy.'' 
Lady Amaranth


These pieces of Art are only a taste of what The Queen of the Gothic Realm has done you can find all of her work by her and her Photographers at her Website,Her Facebook and why not send her a Tweet.
My beloved Whitby at Whitby Abbey.

Miss Pixie_Late

You may have come across the Lovely Pixie_Late in my Blog before .
Pixie_Late a well known Lolita Model and spokes Model for Gothic Lolita Wigs.
Some of you know I am a bit of a Fan of her's.I Found her through Facebook and Lolita pages on the web while searching for my own Ideas for outfits,make-up and hair.
What I like about her is that she can create a range of Lolita looks and is always find new and inspiring ideas for her other outfits and is so well presented is like she waved a magical wand on her outfits utterly magic.
No wonder she is so popular!

Pixie_Late has been promoting other things other than Wigs,Roxie Sweet hearts Items and keep it secret have her modeling their products of Hello Kitty Glasses and she is a Hyper Japan fashion consultant & Founder of Frills and Frolics on Face Book.She also Has done a small interview on Mode Lolita.

What I like is the fact Pixie_late is not always Dressed up every single day and do not wear a Wig in every 
photo showing that she is a down to earth and pleasent Lady ans she is such a natural beauty!
I can so see her doing this for many many years to come as she has clearly been blessed with young looks!


When I contacted her to ask for permission to use her Photos she worte the nicest message back to me and she liked what she saw on my Blog 
*^__^*

All Images belong to Pixie_late.


I love the above photo of Pixie_late she looks like a Flower maiden of Spring with Her lovely bunny Rabbit,she loves Rabbits.

''I find modelling and spreading love for Lolita fashion is something I'd like to continue to do even with I other commitments outside of the fashion because it's something I'm passionate about. I think if you put your heart in anything you do, it'll be rewarding to both yourself and your audience so keep doing what you love.''
Such kind and wise words !
I do like seeing her in a new wig and outfit  its a surprise every time and she is just the Cutest thing! 
So I thought I would share some of her Model work.


Flower Girl she is just so cute!



She suits these pastel colours so well



She is a complete Princess in this photo.




Adorable



A hint of Gothic in this photo and I think this wig is so cool.



I adore this outfit and I have the same Wig arrive the other day.


In nature and can so suits being a blonde.


Winter Photos


I love this outfit and think she should do lots more Gothic Outfits soon!

Miss Pixie_late has her own Blog so you can keep up with her here!
