Spooky Kawaii

I really am feeling so un-motivated and un-kawaii this month- am gona blame it on the weather . 

It's my excuse and am sticking with it. I think I need to go paint my nails some super cute colours or something to keep bright happy vibes around me.  Any way with that and being busy with the Marshmallow maids I wanted to share the video and some behind the scenes with you all. As you all know am part of the team of super cute maids- we are based in up here in scotland and am the teams photographer aka Photographer chan! The Maids Attend many events at different conventions and places

So some of the maids gathered and took over the home studio and got creepy cute with our photos! It was a lot of fun and a other reason for the lack of updates I have been editing the photos- which was a lot harder this time round due to my Flash gun giving up on me. I am going to have to get a new one by my next years set of conventions! - gulp, good bye money!-



I also went to a Lolita meet up- Well kinda, some of us in our wee group sorta missed the meet and well we just ended up doing our own wee thing but it was still very enjoyable! I really enjoyed the company I was in. I was not in lolita myself but the weather was so windy am sort of glad I wrapped up and no one could really see my outfit lol!
So am afraid this post is pretty short for this entry I will leave some photo's of the behind the senses with the maids and should get some more interesting posts up in the next week or so!

My Photography Adventure- Starts here!

Hey every cutie, I thought I would share with you about my adventure starting in the world and hobby of Photography .

Photography is some thing I have admired and with growing up as a young teen in the work place of hair and fashion,It was some thing that came part and parcel with the job, If there was a contest or a event some one some where had a camera taking photos of the models, even I was the model at these events or an assistant back stage helping the models. It was a thrill! I loved it so much. For those that all know me well, I had to give it all up thanks to the products I was working with every day.  *sighs*

Any how ,some how I had some connection with Photography even been the model a good few times for friends and other photographers. But now its my turn to be the one to create the photos! Yeah!

So after many a long a talk with the hubby who helped me get a loan for my Camera and equipment to start up. I have one workshop under my belt and a good few more to attend this year. (One this month ! )

Ideally I would love to attend a evening class. But until then am doing a self study course. Am also learning lots thanks to the internet and some trial and error. *huhuh*

As well as that I have been changing the spare room aka the kawaii room into a pop up home studio!
I have been doing some DIY , painting some items in white and making sure all my walls are as plain as can be. The more white the better for lighting !

Its so far been lots of fun redoing it up . I got some new white shelf's up that are white too. They should still look cute but I wanted them in white to blend in with the room and and stay hidden behind my back drop too. I am way to excited to place all my Kawaii trinkets and such up on display! Not only that because this is a spare room it also houses chibi's own dressing up box and dressing up table. Which I have a feeling once I do get my Studio set up she will be wanting her own photo shoots done. (Hehehe.)

I also decided to also re paint a old ikea small table I have had for many years. I sanded it down removed some stickers and wall paint from it and given it 3 licks of paint in white, I thought this would make a good table/raised platform to use against a back drop. Its not perfect but it will do for the mean time. Also it looks super cute in white and with everything turning white the room is looking larger too!

So am thinking on delaying on buying a zoom lens just know as I have my main kit. And start working on getting the pieces to put together for the home studio.

Such as lights, Reflectors back drop maybe even some props. Am awaiting on some super kawaii cushions to use in props and to decorate my room! haha.

So with all of this going on from the end of this month my dairy is full of events to go to ,I hope to get many photos and pictures. Also I will  to get a very important shoot sorted out and  together with the Marshmallow Dreams maids - a pop up maid cafe full of cute maids at a event in Scotland near you! I will be working closely with this group over the next year or so!  I really can not wait !


so am going to leave some photos of my wish list on my blog post here, to keep me inspired to work hard to get my home studio up and running !


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

Stay super Kawaii!

Lets Shoot Gothic Lolita Tartan

At the weekend there I did my shoot,The rain held off and we got a bit of sun and it was not to cold for my outfit so I thought I would share the outcome photos and some of my own ones too.
This is a Gloomy photo my other half took when we left.

I actually got a lot of complements from the public who passed myself and the photographer,who was so nice!

I have heard of many Lolitas get stick for being Lolita in the public eye,which is rather sad but like I said every one was so nice to us.
Here are a few shots we took at home 
I wore my newest dress and two tone wig from the Lock Shop from the Angelic collection.

Outfits and Family

So its only just Monday and with the power of Ebay I have purchased 2 Lolita Skirts
Yay!
One is a Pink and Black Lolita Gothic Style skirt a part of if in the same colours as Tartan,Which I am very excited about because its my all time favourite colours pink and black and Gothic.Also some one has suggested  its fitting with be being a Scottish Girl and that I should be know as the Tartan Lolita >w< 
The other skirt is a lilac and Poodle Dog print one that utterly cute I hope it fits either that I'm going have to cut out eating so much junk!It was a fight to win this one but My last Tarot Reading has paid for this skirt and my hubby (Bless him <3) got the other one for me and each of them for under £20!
Which leaves me only to get some pretty blouses and I can create some Lolita looks which my be interesting as I want to get a white and black one with a high neck and a bit of lace ekk! 
This may prove hard to find here and with a low price!
The other thing I have purchased is a a new wig from Gothic Lolita Wigs! *^__^* yes the one I was on about a few Blogs back well they had a 20% off and I could not say no to that! However I am vowing not to spend any more money know I won that Lilac Skirt >__<''
But will do a Review on the wig once it comes I got a email saying it was dispatched!
(*^__^*)

Mondays are when I take Daughter (whom kept me up most of last night we were both in tears cause we were both so tired) to see My Gran (her Great Gran),
As my Gran has become house bound I see it as my duty to at least visit her each week,She did do a lot for me but its my turn to give back to her with Visit from myself and Chibi Bean and Ill go make her a Cup of Tea and have a bit of cake together its nice,I like spending time with her even though it brakes my heart when I seen her age so much and become house bound.
I gave a lending hand while Chibi Bean played with the Fridge magnets,I did Gran's Dishes and made her dishwasher a bit more user friendly as she had to put the cutlery in a stupid way and left her standing for so long I hate her to have a fall  with bending over so much so I sorted it for her making it a little more easier for her.
I think she still see's me as a Little girl and forgets I am a mother (Bless) I actually wish I could do so much more for her but I do not drive making things take twice as long when I travel via Public Transport or ask others for lifts!  >__<''

So when I get my skirts and outfits made up I will get some pictures up of them,May even ask my Photographer to do a shoot with some Cherry blossoms that would be so cute!

Here is some Pictures I took of a new Kitty Item I found in the supermarket mega block Kitty!
