Hello again, everyone!
First of all, I would like to thank all the lovely people and friends of mine that I met again here in Holland - this time in a gothic festival called Summer Darkness (http://www.summerdarkness.nl/festival/). In the evening, after the event, I was thinking that I really must be very lucky to have met such a big group of kind, polite and fun people.
This might sounds tacky, but I really am very moved of how nice people here are - I was literally in tears because of the thought.
The Dutch lolitas remind me so much of the amazing community that we have in Finland as well, so I'm definately looking forward to meet with everyone some day soon again. *many hugs*
Even the gothic church where the festival was held was undescribably amazing, almost unreal, as I haven't seen anything like that in my whole life. I would love to take more pictures there some day.
This was my outfit for Summer Darkness 2011 at Utrecht, Holland (31.7.2011).
About the outfit:
Dress, choker: self-made
Coat, parasol: BABY
Shoes, roses in my hair: off brand
Shoes, roses in my hair: off brand
And here you can see the coat and parasol that were bought from Paris (BABY, the Stars Shine Bright store) - the buttons of the coat are roses and the white fabric has silver glitter string sewn all over it, so the complete look of the coat is very different to what I usually prefer. However, I love the coat a lot and even more because it was bought by my boyfriend. *kisses to him*
Here are more pictures that I took with other people. I didn't have a camera of my own with me (although I planned to take a lot of pictures), so if you would like to see more photos of the even, please got to their website (link above) where they have some good material of the lolita fashion show as well. :)
I will upload few professional photos later when I receive them.
(With the sweetes Josine. <3 I hope you like the hat that I made for you!)
With the kindest Denise who is wearing a blackxblue headdress made by me. I'm so glad of the fact that it suits her outfit. <3
And then to the video make up/hair tutorial that I filmed before the big Dutch lolita meeting in Utrecht:
I'm looking quite tired here as I didn't sleep at all the night before - I was too excited because of the meeting, haha.
If you are looking for hair extensions, I would recommand to buy those online on eBay. Here is a link to what kind of extensions I usually prefer: CLICK HERE
I will later upload more pictures of my latest sewings that I made as commissions. I was so happy to notice that the people who I made the headdresses and hats for really liked them and wear them too. I'm quite hoping to get pictures to my "client gallery" as well, so if you have any pictures that you would like to share and that include something that I have made, let me know! It would be an honour to be able to use people's photos.
Currently I have many commissions to finish, so it's not possible to take more of them for a while. However, once I have finished them, I will start with new ones/start sewing other things, so I hope if you are looking for a commission you will contact me once I announce about new commissions again. Thank you very much for having trust in my skills and for the interest towards my works. I'm truly flattered. <3
HUOM! OBS! I do take reservations for dresses and other designs starting from today, so if you want your name on the list, send me e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what you would like to reserve.
Thank you for reading, have a wonderful week and enjoy your life!
I need to take more pictures soon, but for now me goes to sewing! >:3
