♥Hyper Japan~!♥

♪Hyper Japan♪


Heyhey everybunny~!♥ I hope you're having a nice start to the week~♪
Hyper Japan was on Saturday! It was pretty fun, I met some lovely fellow bloggers and friends, but I was so nervous! ;; It was my first time cosplaying, so I was always like "argh omg so scared my cosplay isn't good enough ahh~~" and then when I met people I was excited and nervous and I feel like it was totesy obvious how nervous I was eheh...(^ ^ ;;;) If any of you are reading this, I'm really sorry!♥;; It was so so lovely meeting you though♥♥ 
I'll be at MCM in October! So I'll do my bestest to be less shy and nervous next time! (*^ ^*)♥

Time for lots and lots of photos~ Super piccy heavy~♪ Enjoy!♥
(Josh very kindly let me use a lot of the piccies he took~)

Outside Earl's Court tube station was an actual police box. I'm not into Doctor Who (or at least not the last few series) but this was pretty neat~

There were demos of Ace Attorney 5~! Squee~! This was the first thing Josh and I did♪ I hope Maya is in the new game! Oh oh~ also I can see me in the piccy, in the middle! Josh must have been sneaky ww~♥

 There was an Animal Crossing photobooth!♥♥ Josh and I took cute piccies together ww~♥♥

There was k-pop merch too~!♪ 


Pokemon games~~ (Qv Q ;;)♥♥

 So so many Arpakasso~!♥ I bought my sister an Arpakasso purse~♪

 KERA magazine and CoroCoro comic~!♥♥ I was so so happy to see these, so I had to buy them!♪

Kendo! It was really interesting to watch. The martial artists were concentrating so much!

Madoka figures~ -cries- ♥

Calming nekomimi manatee♥

I met the lovely Denpa-chu~!♥ She was so so sweet, and even let me try her Randoseru!♥♥
 I really want one now~~ -crycry-

I also met some super lovely lolita friends~!♥ Their co-ords were super pretty and so were they and ahh~♪

Of course, we had to get shaved ice~! Mango flavour!♥ It was delicious♪

At around 2ish, we decided we had done everything we wanted to do at HJ and headed to Chinatown~!
I've never been there properly before, but it was amazing!♪ 
I tried taking a piccy of this monument (I can't think of a better word!), but the one Josh took is much better.
I can't help but think that the guy in the blue shirt was posing for us though ww~

Outside a nearby cinema, we spotted this~!♥

We spotted an amazing bakery in Chinatown!♪ We didn't have enough money to buy anything there this time (we needed to buy dinner!) so we'll be going back in August when we take my lil bro♪♪

Afterwards, we headed to Covent Garden♥ We ended up at Forbidden Planet by accident, even though we were planning on going there later! We found the Pokemon manga and Adventure Comics. We'll also be going there next time.♥ It was so so hot, so we decided to find a café! Josh spotted this one, and it was almost empty compared to the packed Starbucks and Costa~ it was only £1 for the canned drinks and it was so cute and quirky!♪ The music was also really swingy and jazzy, kinda like Tape Five. We did some drawing and reading together♥♥

After going to the café, we headed to Westfield for some shopping then dinner at McDo~! It was totesy packed though. OTL
 I took this selfie on the train ww♪


♥Haul Time!♥

I ended up getting a lot more than I had planned on getting ww~ but I'm so so happy with what I bought!♥

It's beautiful~ (Qv Q;;;)♥♥

Very conveniently, HJ had a section with lots of tourist information on Japan~!
It was really helpful since I'm hopefully going to study in Tokyo for a month next summer~♥ (more info soon)
I picked up some really useful leaflets! Some about Tokyo, some about other parts of Japan!

KERA magazine~! It's amazing~♥ I might make an entire post on this and CoroCoro soon♪
I'm also planning on getting subscriptions for both!♥♥

-cries- It had the info on the new Pokemon!!♥♥♥ There's also a really cute silly Pokemon manga, but not the actual manga. Also it lookies like something about Sylveon will be revealed in the next issue!♪♪

I bought a bracelet from Candy Geisha~!♥ Oh goodness, their jewellery is so so gorgeous~ I just wish I could have bought more from the fashion stands! (QO Q;;) Luckily I'll be at Frock On! next month, so hopefully I'll be able to buy lots there~♥♥
I bought my sister an Arpakasso purse, and now she wants a big Arpakasso for her birthday ww~
I also picked up a kawaii letterset!♥ They seem so hard to find at the moment. ;;

 This actually almost made me cry ww~ I got this calendar poster free with my magazines~ 
So incredibly happy♥♥ And so many of my favourite Pokemon are there too~!♥
Duosion, Hydreigon, Volcarona, Frillish, Tynamo, Alomomola~♥♥

Sorry for such a lenghty post! It was a really fun day though♥ 
I'm superly looking forward to Frock On! and October MCM~ in fact I've booked a hotel room for October already ww~♪ I have my second cosplay in preparation too!♥ I think this will be hard to guess heehee~♪
Thankies so much for reading~♥ 
Have a sweet day and a dreamy night~♪

♥Hyper Japan → Hello Kitty Cosplay~!♥

Heyo everybunny~!♪ It's a super duper uber exciting time~!♪♪
Tomorrow, Josh and I are going to Hyper Japan together~!
Neither of us have been before, so we're really looking forward to it!♥
At first I was planning on wearing Dream Sky or another lolita co-ord, but it's been so hot recently, I didn't want to risk feeling overheated and ill. ;; So last weekend I decided to cosplay~!♥
I've never cosplayed before, so I went for something basic → Hello Kitty!♥♥♥
I'm actually really nervous, but I'm sure it'll be really fun~♪ It's nowhere near as good as most cosplayers, but I'm pretty proud! I managed to get all the extras I needed from eBay for under £30.


♥Outfit rundown♥

Dungarees → New Look
Nekomimi → Pinkly Ever After (I removed the middle bow)
Top → M&S
Paws, tail, socks, shoes, bow →  eBay


The top is really light and soft and comfy~! So it'll be nice in the heat (hopefully!)~
The bow is pretty much perfect, too~ I'm so happy~!♪♪


Since Hello Kitty is a bobcat, my bunny tail works nicely~!♪

 I'm really so excited~!♪ I'm hoping to meet some lovely friends there too!♥
I can't wait!♥
Thankies for reading~♪
Have a sweet day and a dreamy night~!♥♥

Heyo everybunny~!♪ 
♥~I hope your day is full of sparkles and happiness~♥
I'm super duper happy to finally make a Dream☆Sky blog post!(*^ω^*) I've actually had this all for a few weeks now, but unfortunately I was on a long holiday so I was unable to do a blog post. ;;
This is the first time I've bought an Angelic Pretty dress without using a shopping service! Due to bad experiences with my previous shopping service, I decided to just buy it myself and risk the customs charges. There is a shopping service I've been wanting to try, but unfortunately her spaces were filled. I was a little worried that I would miss the release, but I managed to get my paws on almost everything that I wanted through super perseverence~♪
Here are the colours it was re-released in~♪ 
I was really hoping for pink! At first I wanted sax, but then I decided to go with the royal blue~ (though it doesn't seem very royal bluish on this sample ww~)
Dream☆Sky was released Saturday morning (Japan time), so I stayed up to see if it would appear on the international site and unfortunately it didn't! It wasn't until Sunday night (after a LOT of waiting and regular checks ww~) that it was released. By the time I had gotten to the site, most of the accessories had sold out so I wasn't able to get the barette, wristcuffs or Milky Star necklace like I had wanted to, but I got everything else~!♥

As always, I got the salopette!♥
The tights were so so cute, so I had to get them~! I thought tights in royal blue would be too much blue, so I went with the pastel pink.♥

I bought the socks in pink too~!

The Hankami Bear bag had been released for quite a while, and I didn't think it would still be in stock when Dream☆Sky got released, but I was wrong~! So I bought this too~♪


The package arrived all pink and happy, and wrapped in prettiness~♥♥
 I love how Angelic Pretty send things in lovely Angelic Pretty bags~ though maybe they should make Angelic Pretty boxes? It might make things more secure, though I've never had anything damaged!♪

 The dress was packaged in plastic and came with a hanger~ The Angelic Pretty tags were on the dress too~!♪ I love looking at different clothing tags ww~

The fabric is gorgeous♥ I love how all the stars stand out from the blue!♥

Under the first layer of chiffon, theres a layer of lovely blue satin edged with more of the printed chiffon~♪ Underneath that is a light petticoat layer that gives the skirt a bit of poof, but not much.

 The bodice is quite simple, which I like! The lace is quite simple too with "AP" and stars on it♥
I did originally want the op, but I was worried about the measurements so I decided to play safe with the salopette. I was really lucky! Even though it was waaaay too big at first, it has shirring on the back so I could tie it for a better fit!♪
There's also a detachable bow on the waist, which makes a really cute headbow~! (see the piccies below♪)

 The tights and socks were packaged very carefully~! There were also wash instructions in English, and and Angelic pretty sticker~♥
The tights are fairly comfy, but not as silky and smooth as I expected. They fit very well though!

I love crew socks, and these are so so pretty.♥♥ They seem very delicate though, so I'm worried about wearing them too much~^^; On one of them, "Angelic Pretty" is on the side of the foot in sparkly gold~♥

The trim of the socks is simple, but super cute.♪ 

The Hankami Bear bag was bigger than I expected~!♥ 

It's so cute and happy~!♥ It's so well made, and has an "AP" tag on the ear!♥♥

The strap has some lovely details, like gold hearts!♪ It's adjustable, too.

On the back of the bag is a pocket!♪ I love this, it means I can keep my phone in there and be able to take it out quickly.♥ As a note: I have an iPhone for and it fits in there nicely.♪ However the pocket isn't secured by a zip or anything. 
Inside, there's a smaller pocket with a tag on!♥

♥Here's a co-ord idea~!♥

Dream☆Sky salopette in royal blue with Chocomint fluffy dangly star attached to waist
Dream☆Sky salopette detachable bow on a headband with a Chocomint dangly star
Milky☆Planet cutsew in pink
Hankami Bear bag in pink
Dream☆Sky tights in pink or Dream☆Sky crew socks

☆Skirt Closeups☆

Martin decided he would wear my Chocomint star on his bow~!♥

☆Dream☆Sky Outfit Rundown☆
(I feel like a sort of magician in this outfit ww~♪)

Salopette, bow, tights → Angelic Pretty
Blouse, petti → eBay (jillpunkxloli)
Twintail bows → Rara's Jewels
Accessories (dangly stars, ring) → Chocomint
Bowtie, shoes, wristcuffs → Bodyline
Mini pink bows → offbrand




☆Hankami Bear Bag Outfit Rundown☆
(I wore this to a recent pink themed meetup!)

Salopette, cutsew, bag, headbow, socks → Angelic Pretty
Twintail bows → Rara's Jewels
Bracelet → Chocomint
Shoes → Bodyline
Tights, mini bows → Offbrand


I hope you enjoyed my Dream☆Sky post~!♥ I'm so in love with this print~ I was so lucky to be able to get it~!♥♥ I'm quite thankful that Angelic Pretty doesn't seem to be releasing anymore super cute prints, so I have time to save up! Milky☆Planet and Dream☆Sky in the space of a month was pretty tough heehee~♪ Promenade de Paris looks super cute!♥ But luckily(for my purse)/unfortunately no salopette. The skirt is really cute though, and so are the tights! So maybe if I ever find the skirt secondhand heehee~♥ I might buy the tights this weekend if there are any left in stock!♪ Musée du Chocolat looks gorgeous, but again no salopette, and I think it's a little too classic for me. (QvQ;;)

Thankies so so much for reading~!♥ I hope you have a supersweet day and a dreamy night~♪
Love love and hugs~! Chu~♥♥
