Just making you aware of my new blog. This is more of an everyday blog, so it’ll be updated daily with a load of fashion related things. I’ll still be updating here but only with big posts, so please make sure you follow http://xapplejuicebox.blogspot.com/ 😀
Well after finishing Series 6 of the amazing Dexter, I decided to paint my nails Dexter themed. It’s not really my intention to copy the aesthetic properties of a fictional dead prostitute, however they nails look kind of cute fairy kei, or something, and since I love the series, why the hell not?
These are a combination of Barry M, Miss Sporty and Hot Looks nail varnish, generally the cheapest of the bunch. ‘Hot Look’s is actually the cheapest of the lot in most stores, but I find that it only requires one coat, the colours are vivid, it dries really quick and doesn’t chip that badly. So weirdly I like using them, it’s just matt colour but you can get variations.
In case you are interested, what I can work out from the images is in the TV show, the nails go (starting from thumb) red, yellow, purple, orange, and green/teal/blueish. But the thumb could be magenta while the orange is red, but I’ve done it the way it looks on the barbie hand. (Also excuse the writing on my hand, university room notes and other stuff, lol.)
So yeah, hope you like!
On Saturday I had a photoshoot with my AP Fruits Parlour in Leeds. It was meant for a competition but I miss calculated the deadline so sadly I didn’t have time to submit anything! So in the future I could probably use it for something else, but for now I’ll just share a couple of pictures we took that day!
The photographer was James Taylor and he’s very talented! Luckily it was pretty warm and sunny outside at the start of the day, which is odd for an English January.
Hope you like them! Any questions let me know 🙂
This is going to be basically a collection of my outfits since 2011. So a super mega outfit thread! I’m not sure what kind of style I dress as really, it depends on the day. Some of the cosplay stuff is from Kitacon, most of it is the stuff I wear to Uni, so I’m just gonna slam it all in here. Also, excuse the random messyness in my room; it varies from picture to picture which is quite funny really.
Well, this weekend has been a very eventful weekend. Saturday was the Leeds Cosplay Group meet, and then Sunday was the Yo! Sushi lolita meet.
As always LCG was amazing, I spent too long messing around with my wig in the morning! I decided to go in Lolita as for some reason I’ve been Lolita inspired this month, and I realised that one of my Bodyline JSK’s that didn’t fit actually now does, which is pretty awesome; it has a matching bag, and I’ve been wanting to wear it for ages!
To be honest it was really difficult to co-ordinate because of the weird shades of gold and yellow, but I do love the wig and wanted to re-use it from my Rima cosplay and so that was the closest thing I had. I made a star hair clip the night before, out of polymer clay (recently got into deco-den, that’s a blog post for another day.) So it all ended up better than I thought!~
