Day outfit: hitting the streets


We are going out for a walk. It was a day of for both of us so we decided to go out, have some coffee and have a pleasant time.
I made the high waist skirt from a XXL skirt :) It was super easy and it's my No.1 Lolita skirt :D now.




People say I should wear contact lenses more often. But I feel naked without my glasses :D Really :D

Dots, my Alchemy sacred heart and my favorite felt flower.

Corsets are the best Goths friends II

It was quite a while since I ordered a new corset. I ordered these beauties (you can see them on "Corsets are the best Goths friends I" in the beginning of the summer and thought that the hunger for this feminine accessory will be gone for a while. But I saw the episode on True blood ( we are re-watching it) where Jessica is visiting Jason wearing  lovely red corset. 

It looked so good that I decided to give another chance to the over bust corsets and ordered this darling :P


I've already got the bloomers :) 
This time I ordered "M" size. Lets pray it will be not only good looking but right fitting too :) I just love this bloody red. I will have it at the end of the month :D I hope.
Well, but that's not all since Pam ( true blood) struck me with this one.

And my soul won't be at rest until she'll get at least two more...
And the candidates for the purchase are these:

Jacquard and fake leather over bust corset


Red and black floral patter under bust corset. I just adore this patters :) 


Oh, if only this one was under bust type... I would get it right away. For now it's in a wish list. We'll see how the thing will turn out with the one I ordered.

I want a black foux leather corset with the buckles too... These ones from Dragon Corsets are very beautiful, but terribly expensive :/


Oh well...


This one is more suitable by price 


I wonder what else will I desire when I'll obtain those pieces :D 
But there is to many of them to ever stop :D
Oh, I could talk about corsets all day. I remember how we got some steel boned corsets ant the lingerie shop I used to work :D. I made my manager to try it on and to feel the luxury feeling of wearing it. She was amazed by the size of her waist :D I was quite good at selling them too :) I always told customers request me to lace the corset if they would want to try it, because it's hard to do it right if you have no knowledge of it at all. And it wouldn't sit right on you.

Corsets I get from Ebay are  usually laced like this.
But it's a WRONG way. This corset will not shape your body to look like a sand watch. To do that, the corset must be laced like this.

The two hoops should be made at the place where your waist is the thinnest. That way the all the tension will be in this part of your waist leaving the chest and hips not so tight. You can browse the Youtube for the lacing videos. There are lot's of them :) My favorite is this :D 

Sebastian is best at this :3

Well, it turned out to be quite long post :).I think this will be enough for today. Thanks for reading. I hope some of it was useful ;)

Corsets are the best Goths friends Part I

I do LOVE corsets. Every time I see Pam from True blood wearing a corset, I squeak :D. I love how super slim the waist looks in it. How elegant and  expressive the figure becomes. :) Oh, and the styles... There is so many to choose from :) Romantic, steam punk, over bust, under-bust :3 I had a real leather corset that I liked a lot it was an under-bust corset, super comfortable and good looking. well, I still have it, but I lost wight and it became too big. 



It doesn't fall off, but it doesn't tighten my waist too :/ There is much space left as you can see :)

This summer I decided that my weight is not going to change in the future very drastically. So I ordered some corset from Ebay. I find Ebay best for such things since I can get good stuff for good price like my floral pattern black under bust corset. Of course it's sometimes a gamble since you don't really know if the item will look as good as in the photo. But this corset was one of the best purchase of mine :)






I defiantly recommend it as the first corset. It fits with almost all style clothes and the price is really affordable  - about 14 dollars with shipping. It's simple and gorgeous. Material is soft but firm. The floral pattern has a light silky shining and looks fantastic in the light :D It's comfortable and it's well made. I got myself "S" size and and it was perfect to fit my waist of 68 cm and make it even smaller. 
The other one was over bust corset decorated with laces and ribbons. It looked good in photos but not so good in reality. That's when I learned that I like under bust corsets much more. 



first of all the problem was that while the size fitted my waist, it was way to small for my chest :/ It's still looks nice, but the bigger size would cover my whole body more nicely :) Secondly, the front closure had those little hooks that every bra has and it's so damn hard to couple them. That's why from now I choose only corsets that have traditional corset loops. At least it costed only 10 dollars so I didn't overpaid for it :)
For a while I was stalking over under bust corset with straps. I never tried one, but it looked good on others.

I especially loved the back of it. What a lovely bondage. 


I was specifically drooling and still am over this red striped corset with buckles in front.. But it's quite expensive so I decided to order a more cheaper one to see if it will fit me. Oh, thanks Goddess  I did. The one I ordered was the same type just black with little white stripes and had no buckles. I ordered "S" and somehow the straps were to short. They were keeping the corset too high and it was absolutely uncomfortable to wear it :( Really, the straps should be adjustable:(  I had to add additional length to them and still it feel like the corset it self is too short for my waist. And I happen to have a long one. 




I also added some buckles in front to make it look more like the red corset that I still want :D It looks really good now, but is not very cozy to wear. And you might not believe but a good sizing does make corsets a comfortable and not torturing piece of your wardrobe;).
So, after being disappointed with over bust and vest type corsets I decided to stuck on under bust ones since it was more easy to pick the size :D So I ordered a simple black satin over bust corset just because I can... :) 



It's simple, nice, comfortable and fits any style :) But I have an urge to decorate it with laces to transform it to a more unique item. I always drool over corsets decorated with laces as well as over the floral patter of black and red :D Or maybe I'll keep it like that because according to Adora BatBrat '' A Goth girls best friend is the underbust satin corset. This should be item #1 in your wardrobe.''

More stuff next time :) Thanks for reading ;)

Time has come for second BJD

In 2012 29th of March I placed an order on Luts.com for my first  ball jointed doll (bjd) Senior delf Abadon  <3 After just a month I was noticed that my order was shipped and less then in 7 days my precious came to me :) 


At the beginning. Photo by me :D


Now. Photos by Šarūnas Genys. Please, do not copy them.

Oh, what a happy girl I was. I still am. Bjd is a hobby witch you either like or think that it's stupid and childish. I'm always asked what do I do with it. I don't know...I enjoy myself. Just like some people like to buy expensive vase or a painting. What do they do with it? They enjoy it. The same here. Many times people try to measure the expenses of my hobby from they point of view. But lets not forget that the same things have different value for different people. I would not buy a phone or a computer for 600 dollars. But if I had that sum, I would gladly spend it on another doll. So people usually are like " OMG, you could buy a new laptop" But I don't need a laptop for 600$. I need another BJD :D 
And I've already picked one. This time it's less expensive BJD only about 250$ with shipping. So I decided, that I'll buy her from my Etsy shop incomes. Still gathering :3
I want a Resin Soul Ai. A hooved beautiful girl, who reminded me of a deer. And the moment I saw her I knew that in my hands she will become a Gothic enchanted Lolita deer :3 And since Haru (my bjd) is to cocky to get in relationships with mortal girls, I hope this one will steal his heart. At least a part of it :D 



These legs I adore :>

Beautiful, isn't she??? Photos 

I don't like the custom face up. So I'll be ordering it blank. I'll try to do the face up myself. Shall I not succeed I have a very talented friend, who I hope will help me. You can peek at her dolls here. All face ups are done by her :)
I'm dreaming about all Gotgically dark things I'll make for my lovely deer - girl: hats, necklace, dresses, bloomers and so on :) I'll have to make her deer horns at firs since she comes with satyr horns. At first I was not sure about fur on her tights, bet the more I look at it, the more I like it. Good body blushing is a key to good looks, as a bad can destroy even a perfect sculpt :) I've seen some amazing dolls been wrecked (in my opinion) by terrible blushing and face up. 
Oh, I just can't wait to get here :3 And could you please offer some names that would fit this going to be Dark Lolita beauty. Something sweet but dark ;) Ok? :)

New, creations - Lolita heart


Here's my last creations. The heart with a lock and a Key pendant :) This heartomania is still with me and I keep on making hearts. I tried to change the form but none would fit so perfectly as heart...




The key was made for a change. A comment from a bf "I would give it to you as a present if it wasn't made by you" :)




Thanks for watching :) More goodies at  my Etsy store

Goth pajamas or what you wear in bed

Since I work 10 hours a day, it's normal that after work I want to put something super comfortable that would allow me to lay on the sofa any way I like :D Pajamas are the best for it since I have no need in looking sexy :D  But, since I do not live alone  I want at least look Gothically cute in it ;) That's when I decided to get myself a Gothic Pajama. But what is a Gothic pajama? I tried to search Ebay, but no goods were find...


Then I tried Lolita pajamas and found something.



Others I've found were very similar. The same black and white tartan trousers and a shirt with a different picture. I wanted something more... But that was all. Well, and PJ Harvey that was occasionally brought to me by Google. 
I would love to have a whole black pajama with spiderwebs printings on it and trimmed with a little bit of lace. 
But this one doesn't look comfortable at all :D
It looks good, but not for resting... 

So, that means I'll have to pull something of myself. well not a problem :)
Here's some ideas of mine.

Sleep time

Bloomer always look cute, are comfortable and doesn't show to much skin while you lay like a bag on a sofa. sock are always welcome. I even sleep with socks time to time. Especially in winter.

Sleep in style

Sweet dreams

Lovely evening while reading Kuroshitsuji manga and falling asleep in cool bedding. Maybe Sebastian Michaelis will visit you tonight ;)

You can use any nice cotton shirt (natural fabric is best fro sleep) and a pair of lovely shorts or trousers. Even soft cotton leggings. But if you prefer shorts you can always add some style by wearing knee high socks :) I think I'll try and sew myself a nice PJ but if you know where I can get one on the net, please tell me ;)
