This post will be a mixture of a review and tutorial, so slightly different than the usual posts. About a year ago I started sewing, having never touched a sewing machine other than in secondary school briefly for an art class. I’m not sure what pushed me over the edge to try it, but I think having seen so many people on Instagram who cosplayed and being unemployed, I decided just to go for it while I had the time. If you’ve seen my Mad Moxxi cosplay, that was the first thing I ever created. But now, I’ve created more and I’ve gone onto a character called “Super Sonico”; this is my main focus for this blog post.
2017 is upon us, and hopefully it will be a wonderful year for everyone. Sadly 2016 wasn’t the best for a lot of people with upsetting events all over the world occurring but we can hope that this year will be better. So, time to get started on my first blog post of 2017.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! I hope everyone all over the world is having a magical day today.
I hope everyone is doing well and getting in Christmas spirit, I’ll be aiming to get back to normal with posting soon, most likely after these holidays. Today we have the dress which can easily be dressed up or down depending on the event; The ASOS Curve Pencil Dress with Ruched Wrap.
I’m sorry for the delay in getting this next post out, if you follow me on Instagram and watch my story on there, you’ll know the past two weeks I’ve been up and down the UK being rather busy. However, while being busy I tended to post before and after photos of my makeup, which resulted in quite a few people messaging me asking what I used, how I did it, and the wonderful compliments. So this post is dedicated to those lovely followers.
Flashback to when I was in my teenage years, I wouldn’t look at anything that wasn’t a dark colour, my favourite thing to wear was my oversized black hoodie (Which I still own and adore to this day). At this time, I don’t think I had ever heard of the rules of what plus size women should and shouldn’t wear, potentially because I was constantly trying to deny my size. But now that I’ve heard of them, I’ve begun to realise how many I break without even thinking about it. You’re welcome to search these rules in google, but when I did, I found the most common and decided to base this post on them.
As of this year, I started to get into cosplay, in the sense that I actually started to wear and make my own cosplays; a completely new thing for me as I only learnt how to sew at the same time I was making my first costume, Mad Moxxi from Borderlands (See my Instagram for photos). In the future I hope to make a lot more, and have my skills progress more too, but one of the things I love about cosplay is how different you can look and one feature of this is the hair, which leads me onto my review of this wig.
The posts up until now have all been based on fashion, and while I do love clothes, I feel I should mix it up a bit and talk about something else. So, today I give you my review on “The Enrapture Encode Totem Hair Styler” or as I will refer to it, hair curlers.
Halloween is upon us! If you check out my Instagram you’ll see that I’ve posted a few makeup ideas, and if you’ve seen my story you’ll see what I’ve been doing to get into the Halloween spirit (A.K.A Watch Let’s plays of Horror games such as Outlast from Achievement Hunter). But for the final design, I went with a classic. The Mad Hatter.
Many of you are aware that while at university, you get dragged into doing a variety of strange and new activities, it’s the first chance of true freedom away from your home life/parents/family etc, and you take full advantage of that. Of course you are there to study, but the other part of university is having fun. A situation that appeared here was a trend for wearing a onesie (or a kigurumi), which is what this review shall be about.
