Late Night Ramblings…

Currently Listening To: “Lost Boy” -Ruth B

 

Hey. It’s been a bit since I’ve written any kind of proper post. October was hectic and I’ve been busy and in a slump. But I’ve recently been coming out of my blocked and depressive state. I’ve been finishing short stories and abandoned sketches and creating new. I cannot sleep, so I thought I’d sit here and tell you guys about some things that have happened the past month and other things.

 

So, first was that I was in a creative slump and block. I had no ideas for all my current projects. All my stories got put aside and I struggled with doing the things I already had done/things I enjoyed. Even though I love this season, the loss of daylight kills me. I love being outside, but the cold temps and short daylight are shit. On the warmer days I got outside and raked leaves to jump into them. Still haven’t been in the woods lately, even though I think the whole clown thing is settling down. That’s just too much for my little anxious spaz self.

I also finally recieved my big, dream, Goth, boots. Fucking love them. I’ve been wearing them religiously and loving it. They’re super easy to walk in and I’m tall! As long as my little sister doesn’t put on her heels, I’m as tall as her, hehe 😀 I bought them from Drew Disaster and they are perfect. *o*

Speaking of little sister. Guess who got her first job? 😀 Whee! I’m so happy. She started on Halloween, so I went trick-or-treating alone, but I brought her plenty candy back.

I love my costume this year. I was a Forest Fae. I made the bulk of it from a 2xl pair of pants from the thrift store and then random scraps of fabric I had around. And who knew I had boobs? I surely didn’t, but it looks like I have some in the picture. Woop! The power of illusion!

I also adore my make-up, especially the brows. I may need to just do this make-up regularly. I feel so pretty c:

Brows. I have been loving my brows this month. They look pretty cool :3

Especially those bat brows. I wore those so much this past month. They’re super easy and gorgeous.

 

So, earlier in the school year, I finished three clases in one week. That meant I needed to pick a few more (I only have elective credits left to get). I decided to take German. It was the only thing that really piqued my interest. One of my favorite artists (Anna Blue) is German and I’d love to listen to her German versions of her songs instead of the English. I have two friends in Germany, and Germany is on the list of places to visit (after Japan and Ireland :3). It can’t hurt to learn a new language.

This fucking U with two dots over it. Like the explanation they gave for prouncing it…  “Pronounced by rounding lips as if to whistle and without moving lips, say the ee in bee” It does not sound any different than if I were to not purse my lips and say the ee sound. Everything else is pretty easy picking up, but this goddamn U. It’s pissing me off.

Also, in the middle of me working through the class, someone decides to fucking update the program and I lose all progress I made. When I first saw that it showed I had no progress, I started panicking and it was just not a good morning. My mom was contacting people who weren’t very helpful and just insinuated that I hadn’t even started the class, even though I have a notebook filled with the goddamn notes. So I had to go back through and redo the classes to get my progress back, so that no teachers would yell at me for not having any progress. 

Fuck you whoever decided that in the middle of the year was a good time to update the fucking program. You probably fucked up everyone’s fucking progress. I was damn near an anxiety attack. Fuck you. And you know what, the new program fucking sucks. It doesn’t give all the translations and it’s very hard on my eyes and my grasping of the language. The old was perfectly fine the way it was. (needs to take a breather, she cannot properly construct a coherent sentence without the word fuck)

 

Anyone, let’s move onto something happier and less stressful.

I wanna buy this pattern and make a million of these. I don’t need a million, but I want a million anyway.

The girl modeling the hoods even looks like a pixie(I want her face)! I neeed this pattern. I wanna make a pixie hooded dress. :c Gaaah. These are so cute! (more incoherent babbling)

 

I also have two little exciting pieces of news. One I’m going to save for later. But I’ll let you guys in on the other one. c: 

img_2326

I have started undergoing setting up an online store. I’ve been working hard on getting pictures and listing everything. Right now it’s just the jewelry (it will be utter hell listing all those bows). I have a few clothing pieces up too. All I need to do is take a trip to the post office to get some quotes on shipping prices so I can set up shipping prices. After that, I will be opening the store and you guys will be the first to know. c: I am really excited for this and cannot wait to get started on this new endeavor. I hope you guys will find something as well if you’re interested. I may even add some of my old clothes as well (a yard sale full of babybat clothes doesn’t sell well…)

Hopefully I can get that all set up soon.

 

So I think I’ve said everything I need to. Hopefully I will get back to regular posts and even posting some short stories soon. c: I’m slowly getting my creative spark back and some of my motivation. So maybe keep an eye out for all that. c: Now I need to get to bed. It’s nearly two a.m., haha.

Bye guys~

For all the Faery Lovers!

 

 

My mom, sister, and I went on a little outing today with my aunt to walk thorugh a faery store. It’s absolutely gorgeous inside and everything is just pure ecstacy for all of us faery folk. xD Also, it’s not obnoxiously expensive! It’s so reasonably priced and I picked up a few things :3

I bought a couple things. ^u^

Beautiful dragon and dryad card that I’m going to display somewhere. A spider in amber ring. Two mushroom charms. And a mushroom bead. c: I’m so happy.
Besides this store we also visited a museum and some other antique stores.  It was a fun day! 😀

Has anyone went on any adventures lately? I’ll post again soon, bye!

DIY Updates + Possible Online Store

Currently Listening To: “Drinks on Me” -Millionaires

 

So before I get to the exciting news, I’m going to show y’all the diy’s I finished this week. First, my favorite, the pants.

IMG_3438IMG_3471

I really love how they came out. I didn’t end up hemming the bottom of the pant legs, because it just looks pretty neat the way it is (I will hem it if it starts to get out of hand). I have been wearing these everywhere and with everything (thigh-highs, tights….). 

Last is my top hats.

IMG_3450 IMG_3455

The netted veil was still at the thrift store when I went back and I’m so happy with how it turned out. I haven’t gotten to wear it yet. It’s pretty rainy here and I don’t want to ruin it so soon!

The only other top hat I completed is this cute Goth Lolita one. It’s a little more so Goth Lolita than mine xD

IMG_3446 IMG_3449

IMG_3440 IMG_3441 IMG_3442 IMG_3443

 

I’m not as happy with how this came out. It was my first time trying to wrap fabric around a wonky shape and it didn’t go very smoothly. But it still looks really nice. c: Not sure if I should well this or not.

 

Speaking of selling…

I have been looking into Storenvy. According to everything I read, the store is free to set up, as if the first 200 products. I currently have it all set up, but still no product listings yet. I’m still reading around to find any hidden costs. 

But, I want you guys’ opinions. Firstly on what you think about the whole selling my stuff online. Plus, I need some help with getting stuff set up, pricing and shipping, and all that lovely stuff. I’m not going to add anything, or open up the store just yet until I have everything figured out. But y’all will be the first to know when I do.

If anyone knows anything about selling online please feel free to give me some advice below. I would greatly appreciate it! As I said, nothing is happening util I get everything together c: I just wanted to announce this to you guys, because i know some of y’all are waiting xD I am getting off my lazy ass and getting shit done!

Byee guys!

Yes, I Really Am Going to Talk About This

Currently Listening To: “Wet Dream War Machine” -Blood on the Dance Floor

 

Oh isn’t that a perfect song.

I love my boyshorts to death and still do.

I kind of forgot that when you lose weight, you not only need new skinny jeans, but also undergarments. I just realized why my boyshorts have been sliding around and bunching up at the top of my jeans. They’re too big for me now! I’m such a dumbass some days.

I actually got some new ones today (I have no problem showing y’all, but someone will inevitably end up offended, so no) and they feel so much better. *relieved sigh*

I remember needing a bathing suit one year and I didn’t have a job and my parents couldn’t afford one, so my mom took me to a thrift store. I found a cute purple-y galaxy one-piece and of course at the time, neither of us realized it was a thong one until we got home. I wore a thong bathing suit for a whole summer and it irritated the shit outta me. I didn’t like the feeling of my ass being flossed, so I never thought I’d ever get a pair of thongs.

For a little bit now I’ve been thinking about getting at least one pair, just for when I wear fishnets, because no matter how big they(fishnets) are, they end up giving me a wedge. I’ve been really contemplating this because of the bad experience with a thong bathing suit. I thought it out and decided I’d get one pair so that if I didn’t like it, it wouldn’t be a total loss.

Today we went to get some dinner for tonight and I checked out the undergarments section and was looking at all the thongs and shit.  I found a really cute three pack that was marked 1.50. I wanted to be sure they were actually 1.50. There was a shit tone of these on the rack, so I assumed it wasn’t an accident that they were marked 1.50. But my mom asked one of the employees and she was nice enough to go scan them for me.

When she came back she told my mom they weren’t and she had no idea why this shit ton of them were marked as such. She called a manager and they ended up scanning another pack that actually had a 1.50 sticker on it. It rang up as not that price. So, almost the entire set up was not priced right at all. 

Whoever set up and priced that rack is in trouble I think…

Anyway, the lady and manager were so nice. They let me have the pack for 1.50. That was so nice. c:

So, if I decided I didn’t like them, it wouldn’t be a big deal. But they are quite comfy after I get the things adjusted. I like them. I will totally wear them. I still prefer boyshorts over everything.

 

…..Hehe, I like how meh skinny jeans feel on meh butt. ^.^ Bet my silky skirts feel fabulous. *o*

 

So that was my exciting day! xD How was you guys’? Opinions on ass flossers thongs?

Haha, leave a comment below, say hi, dance party, I don’t know.  

Bye guys xD
