Life Update - July 2014
I FEEL SO BAD THAT I HAVE TO WRITE A LIFE UPDATE TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE KNOW I’M NOT DEAD HAHAHAHA. I’ve been very inactive online since I started job training last week, I’m really hoping I get hired. It’ll be my second job, but it allows a very flexible schedule, which is ideal for me. :)
1 - I actually forgot that this photo set existed. I was digging through my hard drive, cleaning up what I could, when I found it. These were actually taken October 2013
2 - I’m not actually a redhead. I wish I was, but I’m clearly too chicken to color my hair. XD 
3 - I don’t own both of the Razer Krakens I’m wearing in these pics. One belongs to my friend Billy of The Bonus Stage. This was back when black and screaming green were the only colors available. Razer is releasing a HIGHLIGHTER PINK VERSION, and I need it in my life. (Okay, it says “purple” on the site but huuhuu close enough. I actually want them all, because COLORSSSS)
4 - I’m currently working on two cosplans, both of which are supposed to be completed THIS MONTH. I’m also going to be attending an event, so let’s see how things go. I’ll start posting updates on those here and on my page once I’m done with job training.
5 - I have walked so much in the last few days, it’s not even funny anymore. More on that in my “Job Training” blog post. Just to clarify: All that walking was NOT part of my job training. XD
6 - I miss my uniform “pale” skin huuhuu. I still have a very slight tan from the one and only beach trip and I still don’t completely match my makeup huuhuu.
7 - I’ve been auditioning for hosting gigs. OTL I always feel so awkward huuhuu IDK if I’ll ever host anything hahaha oh well
I guess that’s it? XD Now I shall go back to trying to survive days when I have training. XD

Throwback Thursday: Redhead!
I miss this wig. I still have it, and I’ve been planning to cut the fringe for goodness knows how long, but I haven’t gotten around to it. OTL 
I also miss my DSLR. It’s been out of commission for a while because I’ve been putting off bringing in the lenses for servicing. :( I should probably get that done this year.

Late Thanksgiving Post!
Here in the Philippines, we don’t really celebrate Thanksgiving, but I consider it a good reminder that we do have so much to be thankful for.
I am thankful I’m alive, and that I’m in relatively good health.
I’m thankful for my parents, my family, and friends who have supported me and put up with my weird/awkward/out-of-this-world activities. XD They’ve been there for me when the pressures from life become a little too much for me to handle, and they pressure me just enough to get me to do my best.
I’m thankful for my sponsors, without whose generosity I would probably not be able to do what I love. They’re the ones who cover for most of my wardrobe and wigs and things, and I wouldn’t be able to have all these fun photoshoots without them!
I’m thankful for all the photographers I’ve had the opportunity to work with. The “newer” photographers who I’ve grown with, and the “older” photographers who’ve shot me even though I considered myself so unworthy!
I’m superduper thankful for all my followers across the social networks that I use! In Facebook, where I’m most active. You guys give me great feedback. :) In my dress-up Tumblr, where I’ve received such sweet messages. In YouTube, where people have been commenting and messaging me. I know I haven’t been as active there, and some of my followers actually message me in FB and Twitter, asking me to go back to posting! I swear, I’m prepping stuff for 2014. XD In Twitter, where you guys put up with all my disjounted thoughts and random musings. In Lookbook, where I’ve only just started posting again. And even the followers of my dollie blog in Livejournal, you’ve all been such sweethearts. Thank you, all of you! ♥
I’m also thankful for the people who told me “no” when I was much younger. The ones who told me I wouldn’t go very far, the ones who bullied me in elementary school, the ones who told me that weirdos like me have no place in society. Because of you, I’ve grown stronger, and I’ve followed my dreams.
I’ve got plenty more to be thankful for, probably way too many to fit in this post. XD But suffice it to say that I do appreciate every single kind word, every opportunity, every sponsored item, every silly message, and every conversation (whether a quick one or something that lasted hours). Every “no, you can’t” that attempted to bring me down, and every “yes, you can” that made me push myself even more.

Thanks, you guys. ♥ I have so much love and appreciation for all of it!

Tired from shooting for @dolluxe / @gothiclolitawigs. I’ve had a headache all day, but I’m glad we pushed through. <3 can’t wait to get the shots, I haven’t worn lolita in a while. >_<

Got my new hair and lashes from @gothiclolitawigs and @dolluxe, plus my new palettes from @coastalscents! O u O I’m not the biggest fan of lower lashes, but I’m liking how I look with these. :D burgundy isn’t the most flattering color for my skin tone, but I think this works. :D
I look a bit different with these falsies, but that&#8217;s okay. I think I like it.

Girly eyemake~
I reaaaaally wanted to get good photos of this, but my camera&#8217;s currently out of commission. :( 
Pink is one of my absolute favorite colors to work with, and I thought it would suit this look. There are pink flowers on my top, but I forgot that the Rhapsody pretty much covers everything. XD
Also finally got to try the Dolluxe lashes! I adore falsies like whoa, and I&#8217;ve been itching to get my hands on these. I&#8217;m getting the rest of the designs before I do a review, but I&#8217;m liking them so far. They definitely suited my eyeshadow better than my regular falsies.

I think redheads have more fun.

Blond was the first hair color I ever really adored, and for some time, I did believe that blonds have more fun. Blond hair goes really well with pretty much every color I like to wear, and then some. But then I got my hands on my first ginger wig.

The shade I got was a nice, warm shade of auburn, and it felt so easy to pull on. I’m partial to warmer hair colors, and this shade fit the bill. Aside from catering to my redhead obsession preference, I found that this wig color also adds a little spunk to outfits. I honestly wouldn’t have tried this color scheme for my outfit if I didn’t have wigs in this shade.

Worn in these photos is my latest ginger acquisition, which pretty much combines all the things I like in wigs: reasonable length, curls, and ginger. I’ll probably take photos with the rest of my ginger wig collection sometime. XD

Oh my goodness, I remember this day! Boyfie had only been with me for a month when I wore this out on a date. XD I would definitely still wear something like this occasionally. :P
Surprisingly, I still have the pieces I used for this outfit. Maybe one of these days, I&#8217;ll get the chance to wear it a different way. &lt;3

Hello, toothy grin. XD Wore this out to a date with my boyfie. I was going for a more punk/ero lolita look, but I think I ended up looking more gyaru. XD ————————————-
