Sakuracon and Hope for the future

Sakuracon banner for 2013
So this year I'm going to be attending Sakuracon instead of Anime Expo (because of the huge flub of last years shit-tier events). It will be nice to go back to the con that I started out with. But more importantly, my BFF is coming up for the con, and I'll be by myself for a while when that happens. So no parental unit and your dearest friend visiting for a mini vacation, sounds like a great plan.

Another thing is that we decided to postpone our trip to Japan for another year because of something important. The BFF wants to come back up and move back here. Currently, she lives in a place that doesn't make her happy, and I can understand that. She says up here is her home. So she's going to be saving up and looking for a job. It will be one year before she can have residency, then she can go back to school. And with online courses and everything else. I'm sure she'll do great this time around.

Even though this year marks our 26th year of birth, I'm not going to let it get me down. I know I've still got lots of life ahead of me, and even if I like things that some people deem childish or I'm too old to dress up the way I do, I say that I'm not. I'll always be me and I couldn't be any happier because of it.

Poupee has wigs now

So on Poupee Girl they now have wigs, and in many colors. So now I can change my style whenever I want.
Regular hair on my poupee girl
 My hair is short and in a bob, this is usually how I get it cut. Rather boring, but it's you know regular hair. But now my Poupee's hair can turn into something amazing.

Isn't it awesome? Her hair is now a dusty pink with strands of lavender in it. I really like it, it's super cute and so adorable.

But speaking of actually posting things on my poupee I just haven't gotten around to it. I've got a pair of Vivienne Westwood shades, lots of new designer bags, and a new Angelic Pretty piece I still haven't taken a picture of yet. I'm still trying to figure out how I want the items to be arranged. Since some people have very creative ways of showing things... I want mine to be just as nice too.

Release Dates Postponed AGAIN?!

I'm not one to really complain about things like this but it seems that the Racing Miku figure by Good Smile Company is postponed.....AGAIN. She was supposed to come out in September, but now she's moved all the way to November which really sucks but is a blessing in disguise.

But honestly if you're going to give a release date and not be able to live up to it, just make it a tentative preorder with no actual release date. It would be much better than that.

Another preorder that got postponed is Accelerator from To Aru Majutsu no Index. Dude was supposed to be out this month, but he already got pushed back to November already.
Accelerator from Amiami
I'm not actually as pissed off about this as I should be only because it was slated for a October release and already got pushed over to November. Usually Alter and its sibling companies will push things back at the last minute making you think you've gotta pay at the end of the month, so knowing this one isn't coming out till November is OK by me.

In all honesty I actually don't have many preorders slated for the November month, just two toys an a few coffee cups from Amiami so I can deal with two additional figures. But who knows if these will get pushed back till December. I hope they don't though, I have a really expensive item that I'll be paying for and is my only item that month.

But once 2013 happens, I will be pretty much putting all my toy purchases on the back burner.

Krad Lanrete Dress

I've been looking through Taobao lolita stores again and I found a really simple dress I like from a brand called Krad Lanrete.
Le Chuchotis de L'ete dress
As Krad Lanrete does more gothic pieces than anything, it really stands out to me. Right now I currently only have one gothic dress in my collection and I want to increase it by more. But anything I want more simple pieces in my collection, and something not pink, black or white. Though ivory is more of a cousin to white it's close enough away that I wouldn't have to worry.

What also really impressed me about the piece was when I saw it worn by models.
Long and short version of the Le Chuchotis de L'ete
The dress looks simple enough and comes in two lengths as well; short and long. I'm more interested in the short version of the dress as I'm sure if I got the long one it wouldn't look so good on me and would probably hit the floor if I wasn't wearing high enough shoes.

But anyway let's take a look at the one I am interested in.
Short version, Ivory color
Doesn't it look adorable? It's a very simple design with buttons on the front and a piece of fabric that wraps around the waist. It's a really simple dress but with the right accessories and color combinations would turn it into something amazing.

Simple dresses I believe are essential for any lolita wardrobe, and I hope I can add this one to my collection soon.
