Lolita Meme Part 4

The last Part of the 100-Question-Lolita-Meme. Finally? I don't know. It's fun :)
I need to find a couple of other stuff like this xD
Happy reading~

(76) 男の方のロリィタファッションについてどう思いますか?(What do you think of men in Lolita?)
If it's well done, it's super cute. And cool! Men wearing such a style with grace put a lot of effort in it and are very open-minded, that's a nice trait of character.

(77) ロリィタをして、それ以前から何か変わりました?(Did you change yourself for dressing lolita?)
I think I rather changed automatically while getting to know lolita. In 7th grade I dressed rather boyish, had short hair... and when I started reading about the fashion and looking at the images, I developed a fancy for pretty things. It took a long time for my taste to change enough that I wanted to wear these rather refined clothes, especially dresses/skirts.

(78) 周囲の人はアナタがロリィタをすることについて何と言っていますか? 受け入れてくれてますか?(What does your family and surrounding people think of you dressing lolita? And do you accept it?)
Sometimes my mother chuckles about my dress choice and my sister perhaps thinks it suits me because I'm weird, but I get mostly positive reactions. They like to see the dresses, although my mother sometimes says she would prefer if I wore the dresses without the petticoat xD The only thing she thinks strange are the typical 'japanese photo poses'. xD

(79) 真夏の暑い祭にアナタはどんなロリィタファッションをしますか?(How do you dress Lolita in the boiling mid-summer?)
Someone might hit me for that xD I wear light onepiece dresses or JSKs without blouses (or skirts with light blouses), pack a scarf or bolero for shops with air condition, then I use thin stockings and skip the shorts/bloomers. If it's very hot, I also skip the petticoat. And for my hair, I try to put it in a bun or braids to keep it off my neck, sometimes with a hat to keep the sun off my eyes because I look super dumb wearing sunglasses.

(80) 学校・職場などにロリィタで行っていますか?(have you gone to School or Work in lolita?)
I wore it to my former work, but only on the way, because I had a uniform. I did go to a university festival in lolita :) That was fun.

(81) 普段の服装の系統は?(How do you dress normally?)
I wear skirts as often as possible, but I sometimes have to switch to trousers... And I like skip the blouses for turtleneck shirts for comfyness. So my usual style (if I can call it like that) would be rather toned down and classic, but unusual. I like to give it a hint of vintage with cute boots, hats or my pearls if I can.

(82) 中古品に対する抵抗はありますか?(Do you think twice about buying second-hand clothes?)
Only if the photos are strange or the price is very high or low. I like the possibility of buying second hand.

(83) 彼(or 夫)はいますか? また、理解はありますか? (Do you have a boyfriend? [or husband?] Does he understand Lolita?)
I don't have one.

(84) 理想の男性像を教えて下さい。(Please tell us your ideal man.)
I think I don't really have a type, it's difficult to put a finger on it. I think a good sense of humour is important. 

(85) 今まであった中で一番印象に残ってるロリィタさんはどんな人?(What Lolita has left a big, shiny impression on you so far?)
I~ don't know that many Lolitas to be honest. But I heard Ai Akizuki's speech in London and I could totally relate to her story, so she definitely has a place in my heart.

(86) 自分で服を作ったことがありますか? それはどんな服?(Have you made your own clothes? What are they like?)
For Lolita, I made a skirt and a matching tote bag. Both are a rich violet and decorated with very little black satin ribbon. Oh, and I made two petticoats with rather inferior quality xD

(87) 自分で小物を作ったことがありますか? 何を作りましたか?(Have you made your own accessories? What did you make?)
I made lots of roses out of satin ribbon! A brooch and many hair pins :)

(88) 今まででの自作アイテムでコレは大成功! というものはありますか?(The best item you have made! What is it?)
A brooch I made for my mother. Dark green satin roses and a small string of pearls.

(89) 理想のロリィタ服やコーディネートがあれば、語って下さい。(Please say your most perfect Lolita coordination you wear.)
I think my coordinations are not perfect xD My wardrobe is not put together that well yet.I didn't find anything that I like 100% in my coordinates because I'm still learning. If I want to dress up, I like to wear my white victorian style turtleneck blouse with lace in the front, then my black Surface Spell Dancing Rose JSK with the blue roses, add blue rose earrings and jewellery, blue roses in my hair and black shoes&tights.

(90) 憧れの方はいますか? どんな人ですか?(Do you admire someone? What are they like?)
Hmm, not quite. I have a friend who always speaks her mind, she is strong and fun and full of love for her friends and I just really like her personality.

(91) 1日大好きなあの人とデートが出来ることになりました。相手も自分の好きな格好をして来てくれます。(One day I will go on a date with that person. What would you like to wear for him?)
I would like to wear what I'm comfortable with. Something pretty, but still toned down enough to not attract strange attention to us. A nice blouse or shirt and a pretty A-line skirt.

(92) アナタが将来お店を開くとしたら、どんなお店を持ちたいですか?(If you want one, what type of store would you open in the future?)
I would love to open a bakery/café. Clothes are lovely, but I just don't like sewing as much as I love baking. I'd open a small cozy shop where people can enjoy tea and a slice of cake while looking at pretty furniture and decorations <3 And I'd put up a couple of jewellery stands to sell some of my handmade stuff.

(93) ついついコレに目が行っちゃうのよね〜。というモチーフはありますか?(Your eyes get attracted inadvertantly to something. What is this motif?)
Sparkly stuff. If it sparkles, I have to look at it xD If it's a motif: Butterflies, unusually pretty flower prints and Alice in Wonderland/Fairy tales. And I always look at sweets prints, although I doubt I'd ever wear something like that...

(94) 自分の子供もロリィタにしたいと思いますか?(Would you dress your child in Lolita?)
I guess I'd try. Perhaps without a petticoat, but if it's a girl I would buy lots of cute dresses for her if I could. Oh, my children are going to suffer... ahaha.

(95) 一着のロリ服にいくらまでかけられますか?(How much do you spend on one outfit?)
I try to keep the costs as low as possible.

(96) これぞロリィタ! という仕種があれば、教えて下さい。("This is Lolita!!" Please say what you would say this about.)
I don't use this phrase except for people xD

(97) 一度でいいから着てみたい! ロリィタ以外でそんな格好ありますか?("I have always wanted to try that once!" What, in the Lolita world, have you wanted to try wearing?)
I have always wanted to try wearing Rocking Horse Shoes. I don't know if I'd like it, but I'd love to try.

(98) 自分のロリィタを見て、一言で表すとしたらどんな言葉だと思いますか?(Look at you in Lolita. In one word/phrase, how would you express your style/image?)
I can't make it seem quite right yet. I still have to learn and to buy things that suit me.

(99) アナタの理想のロリィタ像とは?(What is your image of Lolita?)
I think lolita style is a wonderful fashion that can easily be combined with a lifestyle devoted to beautiful things. It's about pretty clothes and learning how to dress yourself nicely (not like the fast-living fashions of today) and enjoy wearing it, if by ourself or in a group.

(100) 大変お疲れ様でした! 100答えてみての感想をどうぞ! (Thank you for taking this Baton!! Please state your thoughts on it!)
It was interesting to focus my thoughts on different aspects of Lolita. Thank you for these questions, it was fun! :D

And thank you for reading! This was the last part of the meme. Let's see what else I can find to post here xD!

Lolita Meme Part 3

Aaand here's part three of the 100-Question-Lolita-Meme! Questions 51-75. Go!

(51) 駅のトイレでコッソリ着替えたことありますか?(Have you ever changed in a train station bathroom?)

(52) 双子ロリ、三つ子ロリしたことありますか? 感想は?(What do you think of 'twinning' and 'triplet' lolitas?)
I didn't try it yet, but I think it's totally cute to look at! Especially if it's twinning in different colourways!

(53) 体型をキープ(もしくはダイエット)するためにどんなことをしていますか? お勧めは?(How do you keep in shape for lolita? Reccommend us something.)
I live on the 4th floor without an elevator xD I don't do much more than walking...

(54) 独りでロリィタは平気ですか?(Do you keep calm when by yourself in Lolita?)
Most of the time. I have issues walking around in my neighbourhood when it's dark, but around town it's fine.

(55) 月々にかかるお洋服・小物代はどれくらいですか?(How much do you spend per month on clothes/accessories?)
At the moment: almost nothing. But when I had a frequent income I spent perhaps 150€ every two or three months plus about 50€ per month for second hand or accessory shopping.

(56) ロリィタファッションを知ってから、実際にするまでのタイムラグ・抵抗はありましたか?(Was there a time lag between you knowing about Lolita and dressing?)
Yes. I read a lot about lolita fashion before I was able to buy some clothes.

(57) 今まで買った中で一番高い物は?(ロリィタ関係で)(What is your most expensive Lolita item?)
At the moment it's an Innocent World coat I bought second hand.

(58) ロリィタって本当にお金かかりますよね。ロリィタ費用をどうやって捻出していますか?(It takes a lot of money to do Lolita. How do you save?)
I just keep an eye on my savings and decide if I can manage spending some money xD If I wanted to buy a really expensive brand dress, I think I would save christmas and birthday money and anything that's extra at the end of the month. But I try to not spend a fortune as long as I can't afford it.

(59) ココだけでコッソリ。今までかけた総費用は大体いくら?(Just a little secret here...How much have you spent so far on Lolita, roughly?)
Not as much as other Lolitas, I suppose xD I seriously couldn't tell... perhaps 500-600€?

(60) 近くに出来て欲しいお店はありますか?(Is there a Brand you want near where you live?)
Oh my. I'd love to have a nice indie brand like Infanta or Dear Celine... but just for looking I'd want Innocent World!

(61) ココだけの話、あそこはボッタクリやろ! と思う店はありますか?("Man, what a rip-off!!" Have you ever thought that about a store?)
Yes. Dream of Lolita makes me a little uncomfortable.

(62) ネットショップは利用したことがありますか? ある方はその良い点・悪い点など、これからの方への助言をお願いします。(Do you shop online? If so, put the good & bad points here to advise others.)
I can only shop online so...
Bad Points: You can't actually touch the things, you have to wait for the package and have to pay customs.
Good Points: Sometimes it slips through customs, you can go by the measurements (which are, in lolita fashion, almost stated, luckily!) and you can take a lot of time choosing so nobody throws you out of a store. *laugh*

(63) ちょっと秘密にしときたいけれど、私だけにコッソリな個人 製作サイトさんを教えて下さい。(You can say if you want, but is there a Secret person/shop that you have ordered a dress solely for you from? [I guess commissioned/replicated])
No, there is not.

(64) 絶対に手が届かない〜! でも、滅茶苦茶欲しい! あのブランドのあの商品ありますか?("I can never have that/see that happening!! But I will always want it!!" Is there a brand you think this of?)
Victorian Maiden. The clothes are so incredibly beautiful but so, so expensive... *sigh* also: I could never wear cute babydoll cuts. It would just look weird on me.

(65) 飽きちゃったお洋服はどうしますか?(What do you do with the clothes you don't want anymore?)
I tell myself that I'll resell them, then forget about them and eventually some day I might remember to sell some xD

(66) 一番最近に買ったアイテムは?(ロリィタ以外でも)(What is your most recent purchase? [Even non-lolita])
I bought a new hat for myself a couple of months ago and I like it a lot :)

(67) もう二度と手に入らないだろうけれど、忘れられないものはありますか?(Is there an item which you love that you can't buy/seem to find?)
Yes!! I saw a nice black flat hat on a website once, but it seems to be sold out and I can't find this kind of hat anywhere. And I'm still looking for a nice short jacket that looks good with lolita clothes.

(68) ライヴなどの時だけロリィタの格好をすることをどう思いますか?(What do you think of people who only wear lolita to concerts?)
That's fine with me. After all, it's just a fashion.

(69) すっぴんロリィタさんをどう思いますか?(what do you think of lolitas without makeup?)
If it suits the style, it's okay. Everyone can decide for themselves, if they want to use makeup. Just for styles like gothic lolita the face might look a bit flat without any kind of makeup.

(70) アナタとまるっきり同じ格好のロリィタさんが! どうします?(Another lolita is wearing the same coordinate/clothes as you!! What do you do?)
I like to see how different one dress can be pulled off by different people! If it would be exactly the same coordinate, I'd want to get to know that person, because apparently we'd have the same style xD interesting thought!

(71) ロリィタは何歳から何歳まで許されますか?(What age should you stop Lolita?)
As soon as it doesn't make you happy to see yourself in the clothes. In Lolita, although 'only' a fashion, everything is about asthetics. So if you put together a beautiful coordinate, put it on and then realize that you don't like the look of it on yourself, you might consider stopping and switching to a different style. (classical victorian clothes might be a better choice when you start looking 'too old' for lolita style.)

(72) どういう状態になったら、ロリィタは卒業すべきと考えますか?(ずっと続けて良いも、アリです)(When do you think you should graduate from Lolita? And why?)
See the above answer. If you don't like it on your body any more but still like the style, switch.

(73) コレだけは止めてくれ! というロリィタファッション上の注意はありますか?("You should stop that!!!>_<;" What must you not do when dressing lolita?
Although it's a fashion, I think it's strange if there's nosepicking or sitting with widespread legs... Also, I'm confused when someone lifts his/her petti to straighten their outfit.
And the same thing I dislike about all groups of people: Standing in the way. It's fine to stop for a photo, but walking into a shop and blocking the way for everyone because one person wants to look at something... that's just not nice but that's for all groups of people.

(74) ロリィタとはこうあるべき! というような考えはありますか?(A lolita should be 'this'! What do you think that should be?) 
I do like a certain kind of character, but that's nothing that comes with a fashion. Nobody needs to be super-friendly or have model-like looks to be a lolita. A lolita should be able to put together nice outfits. She (or he, for that matter) should look well-dressed when in lolita.

(75) 73以外で、ロリィタさんにコレはして欲しくない! ということがあったら、どうぞ。(Excluding #73, is there anything you wish people would not do in lolita?)
I wish for the community that there's less hate. It's natural that people start gossiping, but offending people because of clothes is just stupid.

That's it for today, thank you for reading!

I hope, my dear Readers, you will enjoy this post about my first lolita fashion meetup!

Lolita Meme Part 2

Hello, my Dear Readers!
This is part two of the 100-Question-Lolita-Meme, Questions 26-50. Enjoy :)

(26) ロリィタ初心者時に仕出かした恥ずかしいエピソードを教えて下さい。(Please tell us an embarrassing story when you were a beginner in lolita.)
My first dress was bought second hand. It was nice, but it didn't suit me that well. The collar was cut too deep for my small chest and the skirt part was too short for my long legs. It still didn't look all too bad, but one day I wore it with overknee socks and without shorts or bloomers. Well.. I didn't feel very comfortable on the see-through metal stairs when we went sightseeing u///u°

(27) アナタの今の髪型と色は?(Your current hairstyle and colour.)
I have a natural blonde, straight hime-cut reaching my chest. My bangs need to be re-cut though xD I sweep them to the side but it doesn't look too nice on me.

(28) ロリィタ歴はどのくらい?(What is your lolita history?)
Difficult... I think in 2007 I really discovered the style and read a lot about it, in 2009 I bought that first dress and went to a convention in it, too. My first bodyline and second hand orders were in 2013, I guess. On a vacation in 2013 I went to my first small meetup in London, and September 2014 was my first lolita event, Revelry in London. Now I'm slowly adding bits to my wardrobe and try to wear Lolita whenever I can :)

(29) 専用の衣装収納場所がありますか?(Do you store your clothes in a special place?)
I have a clothing rack so I can see my dresses and don't have to squish everything into my wardrobe. And I'm planning on getting a nice hat box for my petticoats!

(30) 今までロリィタを止めようと思ったことはありますか? また、その理由は?(Did you ever think about stopping Lolita? What was the reason?)
Not stopping. Putting it on hold - what is what I'm doing at the moment until I'm in a better financial situation... currently it's not quite possible to get anything new.
I thought about how long I could wear Lolita though. Because I have no idea how fast it will look silly on me. There are people who are beautiful and can pull the style of until they are 40 or even 50 years old, but I'm afraid I might not be one of these.

(31) あなたのモットーは?(What is your motto?)
"People gossip all the time. No matter what you do, you'll never make all of them happy - so just do what you love."

(31) 将来の夢は?(Your dreams of the Future?)
I want to live in London some day. Preferrably in a pretty house near Camden or Notting Hill. And I often daydream about owning a small Inn or Café Boutique  - something where I can welcome guests wearing whatever I like and make them feel comfortable.

(33) この人は絶対ロリィタ似合う! と思う有名人の方はいますか?("This person is so perfect for lolita!" - Do you ever think that about certain celebreties?)
I suppose not...? But I do think it about friends and strangers sometimes!

(34) 一番思い出の詰まったお品とその思い出を教えて下さい。(Any products/items you have with a fond memory?)
Not yet. Only a rather frustrating memory - I ordered a dress months before a meetup and it still didn't arrive in time - I was quite sad because I wanted it especially for that one day.

(35) 一番最初に手に入れたお品は?(What was your first item?)
My first item was a Bodyline skirt I bought second hand. It's black with a lace pattern and peach coloured roses printed all over it.

(36) 写真を撮る時の決めポーズはありますか?(Have you got a pose for photos?)
Nope. I always look weird xD sometimes I try to curtsey but I really have to work on my poses :/

(37) アナタの心のバイブルを教えて下さい。(本・雑誌・CDなど何でも)(What is your heart's bible? [book/magazine/CD/etc])
The books "A Little Princess" and "Anne of Green Gables". I love them, they represent exactly the feelings I connect to lolita fashion.

(38) 一番高い踵の靴は何cmありますか?(what is the best cm for heels?)
Difficult... I think 5-7cm?

(39) ティアラはつけたことがありますか?(Do you wear tiaras?)
I'd love to own one and I know which one I will buy as soon as I can.

(40) たまには王子をやってみたいと思いますか? また、どんな王子? 暗黒系? 白馬系?(Do you think you want to try prince style? What kind of prince? Ankoku-kei [Gothic/dark prince]? Or "prince on a white horse" style?)
I would like to try prince style. Any kind actually, but elegant fairy-tale like style would be my favourite, I think.

(41) レースはどんな種類が好きですか?(What types of lace do you like?)
I really like venecian lace. Crochet is mostly a little too coarse for my taste. There are some pretty kinds of raschel lace, too, but you hardly see it.

(42) お人形さんを所有していますか? 持っている方はその子に対する思いを熱くどうぞ!(Do you own a doll? Does it give you fun, childish feelings?)
I hope that I can some day own a doll! At the moment I only have a handmade teddy bear.

(43) ロリィタ時の鞄の中身は?(What is in your lolita bag?)
The same as usual: keys, money and mobile phone, tissues and an mp3-player, almost always a book and/or a sketch book and, if I can manage, some sweets and a small bottle of water. And a lipstick or chapstick. (and somehow, I always find a hairpin. In every bag.)

(44) 好きな花は何ですか?(What is your favourite flower?)
I like a lot of flowers... Lilies of the valley and sunflowers and roses... :D

(45) 今、一番のお気に入りアクセサリーはどんなもの?(Right now, what is your favourite accessory?)
My pearls. A friend gave them to me as a christmas present, earrings, necklace and bracelet. <3

(46) お気に入り・お勧めの化粧品を教えて下さい。(Please reccommend us some cosmetics.)
I don't use cosmetics too often... but my go-to foundation is the MISSHA BB cream. I like it quite a lot :3 I always switch and mix up my mascara, so... no idea xD Oh and I like the matte lipstick from Sleek. It's great!

(47) パッチリお目目はお人形さんの証! ということでつけまつ毛は使っていますか?(With Eye-tape your eyes look like a Doll's! What eyelashes will you wear?)
Usually I don't use anything to make my eyes like that... usually. I'm not really good at handling fake lashes, although I like them :)

(48) アイメイクの拘りをどうぞ。(Your eyemakeup for these eyelashes?)
Usually I try a nice and natural doll-style eye makeup in brown shades.

(49) 口紅は赤? 青? 黒? ピンク?(Red Lipstick? Blue? Black? Pink?)
Red. Definitely red. Strong matte red. But sometimes (depending on the outfit) I use a pinkish nude or a very soft brownish orange for a softer look.

(50) マニキュアは何色を使うことが多いですか? (Or which nail polish do you choose normally?)
I prefer not to use any nail polish. It makes me feel dizzy :/ But I think I would choose french nails, they are quite nice for any style.

Finished part 2! :D Thanks for reading!

Lolita Meme Part 1

Hello, my Dear Readers!

I saw this 100-Lolita-Question-Meme on some blogs and because I'm in the mood (and want some Loli in my life while I can't afford to go shopping) I thought I might give it a try. I copied the questions from livejournal. And I'm leaving in the Japanese because it's pretty :P Enjoy :D
(This is part one, Questions 1-25)

(1) HNと生年月日、出身を教えて下さい。(Screen-name and DOB, please tell me these~.)
My nickname is Tydarkpromise, on almost every website. People usually call me 'Ty' [tai]. I'm born on March 4th, 1991.

(2) 身長・体重・服のサイズ・靴のサイズは? (height, weight, clothing size and shoe size)
171cm and... yeah, about 67-70kg I guess... Don't have a scale around xD I'm a German size 36-38, Japanese L-XL (My limbs are too long =_=) Shoe size is usually a German 41.

(3) ロリィタファッションをするようになったキッカケは? (why did you start to dress lolita?)
I adored the style long before I was able to put an outfit together, so I bought cute casual stuff for a while. When I finally had a job, I went ahead and got a couple of lolita items. I was so happy! The style is just pure happiness. Fluffy skirts and ruffles or pretty lace are things that make me feel good while wearing them. When I wore my first handmade fluffy petticoat, I became addicted *haha*

(4) 好きなロリィタのジャンルは? (which style of lolita do you like)
I love classic lolita! It's my favourite. Country is cute, too, and I think Kodona is just adorable, although I can't pull it off.

(5) 上記に対する拘りや、自分なりの定義などあれば、教えて下さい。(express in your own words, the ideal your above answer)
So in my opinion the ideal for classic lolita is to look beautiful and refined. For me, it's a mature way to look cute, a little like a young lady or a doll from the victorian age, although oftenly combined with rococo or other traits.

(6) ピアスは開けていますか? また、いくつあいてますか? (Do you have piercings? Where?)
No piercings except for my earrings :)

(7) 好きなブランドは?(Which brands do you like?)
I love Innocent World, Victorian Maiden and Excentrique, but also indie brands like Infanta (<3), Dear Celine and Classical Puppets.

(8) アナタの一番お気に入りのお洋服はどんな服ですか?(Which are your favourite clothes you wear?)
My wardrobe isn't that big yet so I still don't have much to wear on a daily basis, but I love my high-waisted flower skirt from Bodyline <3 And I have a small collection of vintage blouses I wear quite often when I'm not in Lolita but want to dress up a little.

(9) ロリィタ友達は何人くらい居ますか?(how many lolita friends do you have?)
Not so many *laugh* I'm too shy for my local community. It's just about five or six people, most of them I only meet when I'm able to visit London. I have one dear friend in Berlin though who made her first orders around the same time as I did, we often go to conventions together, also wearing lolita :)

(10) ロリィタをした上での一番良かったことは?(What do you love most about lolita?)
Feeling good about myself. I dress up, I'm happy, and when I go out, I don't care about people staring or looking at me like I was weird. Also, there are always some people who love the style and smile when they see it. That's really nice.

(11) 逆に一番一番嫌なことは?(What do you hate about it? Pet peeves??)
I hate the drama. I'm not that into any community to have witnessed some, but there are so many horror stories. But that's the same thing with every fashion, I guess.

(12) 愛読雑誌は?(Magazine you read?)
Sometimes the GLB (although my kanji reading is reeeeally bad) and the 'otome no sewing book' series.

(13) ヘッドドレス派? ボンネット派? リボン派?(Headdresses, bonnets or ribbons/katsushya?)
Difficult. I have really thin and heavy hair so I can't wear huge headdresses without looking stupid. I prefer a small ribbon tied into a bow on the side of my head and/or hair clips with roses. So if I had to choose one, I'd say ribbons. I want to try a bonnet though!

(14) ドロワーズは穿いていますか?(Yes to Drawers/Bloomers?)
Yes. And if it's not bloomers, it's some kind of shorts. Just to be safe - and to keep those tights up.

(15) ヘッドドレスは前で結ぶ派? 後ろで結ぶ派?(do you tie headdresses at the front or at the back?)
I don't own a headdress. But considering my head's shape I should probably tie them at the back.

(16) 好きな音楽のジャンル・バンドなどはありますか?(Who is your favourite band/type of music?)
I like almost everything. Rock musik, movie OSTs, Disney songs. And the German Digimon soundtracks, they are great. I just don't like dubstep, techno and death metal that much xD

(17) 携帯の着メロは何ですか?(What is your phone ring tone~?)
Depends on the person calling and changes constantly... at the moment it's a standart telephone bell ring tone.

(18) ライヴにはロリィタで行きますか?(Do you go to concerts in lolita?)
I don't usually go to concerts.

(19) ライヴに行く方はライヴ中にヘドバンしますか?(For people who attend concerts: Do you headbang there?)
If I would go to concerts - hell yeah!! But perhaps not in lolita xD

(20) 何色が好きですか?(What colours do you like?)
Loooots! Especially black, royal or smokey blue, emerald green, burgundy/dark red and muted colours.

(21) 趣味は何ですか?(What are your hobbies?)
I love drawing, baking and cosplay, also reading and listening to music. The best is to have friends over so I can pamper them with homemade food xD (I love the preparations, but who can eat a whole cake by oneself...?)

(22) 愛用の香水があれば、教えて下さい。(If you have any favourite perfumes, please tell us.)
I hardly use perfume, but I like flowery scents (lily of the valley, lilac) - especially the perfume "Anais Anais".

(23) ロリィタする上での「コレだけは気をつけている」ということはありますか?(Is there anything you are careful of in lolita?)
I always take care my dress doesn't show too much petticoat, which makes it necessary to sit down very carefully. Also I'm taking care of what I eat. Stains can be nasty.

(24) 主によく出没する所は何処ですか?(Do you have any favourite places to go to in lolita?)
When in London, yes - I love Camellia's Tea House. Where I live - not really. When I feel like it, I dress up for shopping. But there's a cute Japanese Café here, I like to go there.

(25) 週に何回くらいロリィタですか?(how many times a week do you dress lolita?)
That depends on what is planned. In everyday life it's about once every two weeks at most, but when I'm meeting friends or when I'm on vacation it's usually more often.

Sooo that's it for part one! :D This is fun! The rest of this will get uploaded, I'll put it on schedule.
Thanks for stopping by!

Outing Report: Phantastic Library in Wetzlar

Hello, my dear Readers!

Yes, I know, it's been a long time. I won't make any promises for posting more often because... let's face it, a blog is like a diary and most of the time I just forget writing something @_@ Sorry!
Nonetheless I am happy if somebody actually reads, or, dare I say, even comments anything.

This post is about the Phantastic Library ("Die Phantastische Bibliothek") in Wetzlar.
I had an outing with some students and our teacher from university and I was amazed by the concept. The website can be found [url=]here[/url] - it is a library dedicated to collect novels and short stories of the Science-Fiction and Fantasy genre as well as fairytales, adventure novels, fanzines and lots more. They also offer courses on writing, reading, working with theories from Science-Fiction novels and more...! Sound interesting? Oh yes, it is. I'd just LOVE to move there. Because, well... everyone who knows me knows that books are one of my favourite addictions. I can be unnerving when browsing bookstores and I always have at least one book in my purse.
Care to see some of the photos I took?

Comforter for cold days

Hello, my dear readers!
In the past chilly days I caught myself a cold. As I have to work nonetheless I am coming up with loads of things to fight the cold back - ginger tea, a lot of honey, vegetable stew, and so on.
Today I made a comforting apple punch! It smells delicious and is so, so easy to make!
Probiert es aus, es ist ganz leicht! ;)

You need:
1l apple juice / 1l Apfelsaft
juice from 1 Orange / Saft einer Orange
1tsp gingerbread spice / 1 TL Lebkuchengewürz
1pinch ground ginger / 1 Prise gemahlener Ingwer
1tbsp vanilla sugar / 1EL Vanillezucker
2-3 pinches ground cinnamon / 2-3 Prisen gemahlenen Zimt

Mix the juices in a pot, add vanilla sugar, gingerbread spice, ginger and a part of the cinnamon.
Turn on the heat and warm it up, stirring occasionally.
Taste, and put in more cinnamon or gingerbread spice if desired. A spoonful of honey might be nice for a a sweeter version!
I would have liked to try this with whole sticks of cinnamon or star anise, but I didn't have any. So I chose the quicker way ;)
Die Säfte in einem Topf mischen, Vanillezucker, Lebkuchengewürz, Ingwerpulver und einen Teil des Zimtes einrühren.
Herd einschalten und die Mischung heiß werden lassen. Gelegentlich umrühren.
Probieren und nach Geschmack mehr Zimt oder Lebkuchengewürz hinzufügen. Honig schmeckt sicher auch gut in dieser Mischung! Lasst es euch schmecken <3

Enjoy at a nice winter day! (or at a not so nice one. Your choice!)
