Kawaii Halloween ideas and sugestions

Hello My Kawaii Lovers
Halloween is drawing near,I love the fun around Halloween,but its more than just about the trick and treats to me. *nods nods*



Halloween is the time were the links to the living world and the other side are lifted and thinned out.

The idea of us dressing up as zombies ghosts and witches and other scary things was to confuse the departed  and lost souls that walked with the living on Halloween night. That they could not tell who was who, to spook and scare on this long dark creepy night.
Jack 'o lanterns made from Turnips and Pumpkins craved with faces sat out side homes to scare away evil spirits and Candles burned to guide the departed loved ones back to the other side safely.

I love the darkness of Halloween but I also find that us Kawaii Lovers like to make it very Creepy yet very cute.

Dressing up is one way to do it,You have a range of Kawaii Ideas to pick from Hello Kitty outfits to becoming a Princess from Disney though how that may confuse the walking dead beats me 
@.@'



Decorations have changed a lot  you can know get some really creepy real looking ones and then the more light hearted fun and child likes ones.Pumpkin Carving also seems to become a art and contest in some places too!




Some like to go crazy and Dress up and put alot of work into there Halloween outfits,some look so real and some are so scary and others are utterly KAWAII!
Others may theme their day to day outfit a bit more spooky than normal than dress up.
As you all know I'm dressing up as a Fairy and Chibi bean is dressing up as a Witch.
^_^




Here are some cute ideas for you all!
Why not look for cute spooky t-shirts that tend to come out at this time of year.
Look at Halloween themed Jewellery that most small businesses like to bring out at this time of year.
Look at clip in colours for your hair likes of orange green and purple for some fun and check out some nice wigs too.
Dress up your house with cute looking spooky decorations.
Try making your own ones too.
Or why not be a bit more daring and Cosplay from a anime that's related to Halloween.
Your pick how you want to celebrate Halloween but most of all Have lots of fun!
I will post up photos of my outfit and decorations for you soon.
Look out for more of my Halloween Posts!
Stay super Kawaii

Its all about Kawaii!

Hi~Hi Kawaii Lovers,I hope you are all well and keeping super cute!
Myself  I have  been looking for a cute necklace with ''Kawaii '' on it while I have been x-mas shopping,and
I am soo bad for saying Kawaii out loud in places.Unless you know what it means I get lots of Funny looks in shops and the kids sections in too.
So I thought it was only fitting to get a necklace because I love ''Kawaii''.
I spoke to a few companies about a custom necklace but they were all to busy I all most gave up but House of Wonder land came to save me!
I was so happy,though it took a while to get the right fount to work with the word 'Kawaii' so it looked like 'Kawaii' rather than 'KawaII' and then asked if I could have a purple shade and left the rest up to the magical lady at the House of wonderland and OMG!



ITS STUNNING!
I also got the 'Harajuku' necklace a week before,cause I thought well if I dont get a Kawaii one I will have Harajuku,Hanging by my heart.(A place I so want to visit!)
So here is a few Photos ^^

I really have not had as much time to make a outfit go with my newest Gothic Lolita skirt but I found some time today but I have found some things that I would like to get to go with my skirt and I have fallen in love with a dress so I will share them with you!
Red Tartan Dress and in its purple Version,Really love this one dress as well as this cute Skirt all from Phaze clothing.Death Kitty also Do a lot of Tartan skirts too.I have also found a small online shop that has nice size Tartan bows too,So I've gone and got the Bows for my hair and wigs.
So I had a good look out of all my Gothic stuff to go with the skirt and this is what I came up with.
Also you may have noticed that I know have Started to Watermark my own personal Photos,I found out that some folk are taking others photos and then using them for other things and not asking permission.

So here are some photos of my outfit!

Lolita on a Budget (Part 1)

This whole week has been gloomy and rainy,Im quite gutted about it with the April showers and even Hail!
>w< 
What on earth is that all about?
This Blog entry is about getting this Lolita look but at a lower costing price! 
This Entry was sparked by some one saying how expensive Lolita outfits are and its very true and sad news for us having to ship and order over seas as the postage adds even more to the price! *tear*

So how can we get around this.

One idea is get into the Lolita community its rather hard to with being Scottish but if you look on the web for Lolita groups online and forums its a good start and get talking to them,I found a few on Facebook under the groups in a search.They may have some hints and tips for you and your hunt for Lolita goods at a lower cost.
I had to search myself  and on a budget I came across enchanting online shops that ship from Japan but the price was so high!

So I looked at what I was looking at and thought can I make it /some one else or can it be broken down into something more simple?
Then I headed over to a few Lolita models/Idols and looked at the outfits in a new way,What are they doing to create the looks,I noticed a few would have the same dress on or skirt and would team it up with other tops or wear it in a different way by adding a jacket or change the other items colour theme.Looking at the tops and dresses I then  looked online at your normal high street shops and found a simple version which cost a lot less!

So lets this dress here its black and white and classic looking.
This Dress is from here but I don't want to spend about £40 on it so lets make it our own,
A lot of Lolita actually make a lot of there own stuff on a side note.

So here is how I would do,Look at the shapes and the details and then remove them in your mind or you could use Photoshop here (I use GIMP btw).
The Dress could pass as a Skater Dress which seem to be in at the moment in the shops so you can get one rather easy and cheap.
For Example :New Look



And its only £11.99 see here.


Yes I know its not every Lolita like but take that Brown belt off and purchase a high neck Blouse like the one form Kate's Clothing,with the dress on top you will get the Pinny style dress look of a Lolita.

You could use a White or a Black depending on the style you are after.
You can also get very low priced Blouses more a less anywhere or you could try a Vintage shop,charity shop and Gothic shops for a blouse with more detail.


The Bow Can be very simple to make with Ribbon or again you can find oversize bows made at Esty,Esty has a lot of treasures to find.All You have to do is add the bow to the blouse make sure its nice and big.


Lets take a other look at the Lolita Dress,Which has Lace around the Neckline,Hem and Shoulders,Know if your a dab hand with the sewing machine not a problem or if you are like me and can not use on to save my own life then its best asking some one or going to a tailor shop to help.

All you would need to do is get a Lace material  from a fabric shop or a Craft hobby shop they would have such things and attach it to you skater dress.


Then you can team it all up with Bows,Ribbons,Hair Pieces and Jewellery and really make your new outfit your own and best thing is no one will have the same as you because you made yours your self! Its Kind of Easy once you know how.

Stay Kawaii x
