Autumn Antlers

Hello, my dear readers ♥

At the beginning of September I made a new set of antlers for Porcelain Doll. The weather was still very warm and sunny, but I was already in full autumn mood so when I was shopping for materials colourful leaves, plastic toadstools and ivory clay "magically" appeared in my bag =D As I got home I couldn´t wait to start working on them - everything looked so great together *o*
After they were finished I need to take some photos and since they were so woodland themed...I dressed up as a faun !

I liked the look so much that I was seriously thinking about going out again and buy things for one more pair and keep it for myself >_< But unfortunatelly...there are no occasions for me to dress up in full-autumn-faun mode and I already have two pairs of antlers !
So I at least took a lot of photos...and put together an outfit =)

Here are photos of each pair...they might look all the same, but there is a different amounts of leaves, toadstools and briars on them ♪

And my "faun traveller" outfit !

antlers, brooch, sweater - made by me
faun ears - The Elven Caravan
pants - SanuBabu
bag, shoes - h&m

As you can see I even tried to do some interresting make-up on my face =D I was inspired by the famous deer make-up, but I don´t like the dark nose and split upper lip so I remade it into more casual version =) No need for expensive make-up to achieve this look - I´m using Alverde vegan cosmetics from DM only ♪

There are still some of the antlers available in Porcelain Doll shop. Later they will probably appear on e-shop as well...and if they get sold, don´t worry - I´ll make more of them soon ! But how they will look depends on materials I´ll find in the shops =)

I hope you´re all enjoying autumn as much as I do !
Have a nice day, everyone ♥

August Meet-Up in DB Museum

Hello, my dear readers ♥

I´m sooo sorry for not posting anything the last week >_< ! I was a bit busy with everything - I had to finish two skirts for Porcelain Doll, decided that I´ll take new photos of all harnesses in my Etsy shop, also I had to make some more of them because quite a lot got sold lately, I´m working on knitted gift for our friend´s baby, on crochet scarf and I bought yarn for Katniss cowl. My German courses started + I had my first Zumba class (=D) and of course October started which means INKtober & Drawlloween !
So I´m sewing, drawing, knitting and learning all the time...pheeew ! What a busy start of autumn =)

Today I want to show you a few photos from the latest lolita meet-up of Franconian Princesses which happened in August. We went to Transport Museum in Nürnberg to take some more photos with trains since the last time when we took a ride in a steam locomotive it was raining the whole day.

This time we took a lot of photos and the museum itself was really interresting, too ! My favourite part was a train which belonged to King Ludwig and was totally over-decorated with gold, furnished with fancy sofas (and fancy toilett, too !) and literally on top of that it has a huge golden crown on the roof =D

After we saw all trains we went to city center and had a late lunch in a nice restaurant. It was such a pretty day ! And what´s the best I can now understand so much better that a year ago *_* Here on lolita meet-ups I can see the progress I made with German language the best, since everyone is talking to each other and while I was totally lost just a few months ago - now I can follow what´s going on and I don´t have to wait until someone tranlates everything to me =) whee !

About my outfit of the day - I dressed up in a bit casual steampunk lolita to match the topic and to be comfortable while travelling. (it was still too hot for a wig !)

I´m always looking for some interesting facts or photos from the town I currently live in...so here´s historical photo of the main station in Ingolstadt =)

And here are some cute photos Ophelie took of me and my outfit ♥

 I´m such a railroad engineer ! Can you see the determination in my eyes =D ?

dress - BTSSB
googles - DraculaClothing
belt - h&m
tights - C&A

And a close-up of my make up/face =D

Have a nice day, everyone ♥

DIY vest from old T-shirt

Hello, my dear readers ♥

Today I want to share with you a nice super-easy DIY project I found on tumblr.
All you need is a men size t-shirt, scissors, 5 minutes - and tadaa ! You have a new vest =)
It looks great with all kinds of outfits. But most importantly it is an easy way how to get one of these oversized cardigan-things which mori girls wear.
(In case you live in a town where are no good thrift stores and you have make everything by yourself instead of just buying it for few cents... like me -_-)

I found this tutorial a while ago, but I didn´t want to buy a t-shirt specially for it - that would lost the sense of upcycling =) So I was waiting patienly until I found a hole in my bf´s t-shirt while I was ironing and instead of throwing it away I used it for this. It wasn´t XL like the one used in the tutorial, but as you can see it still works great !

Now I´m looking forward to buy some cool old large t-shirt in second-hand store when I´m in Prague and make the bigger version as well *o*
Because there is never enough of weird shapeless vests and cardigans in mori-girl´s wardrobe !

earrings, vest - DIY
scarf, quartz necklace - gifts from my bf =)
shirt, leg-warmers - C&A
skirt - Bershka

I hope you like this idea of recycling as much as I do. Old garments made into new ones instead of  polluting Earth with even more trash !

Have a nice day, everyone ♥
