Meeting in Germany :D

Last saturday we were going to meet German gals in Dusseldorf! so Rox, Jessica, Josephien and myself got up early to do all the preparations (hair etc). And we left at 10 in the morning

Photobucket
Driving the Truusinator, everything was cool. After being in the car for around 2 hours or something we were almost at the station!

Photobucket
We landed at our last traffic light, last turn! But then..

Photobucket
AAAAHHHH
Photobucket
EEEEEHHHHHH

BOOM
Photobucket
We got hit by a car on the right side.

off course I'm trying to tell you in a funny way now (hoping not to insult anyone) but in fact it was not fun at all. The car is pretty much scrap metal now and I think we're all coping with stiff muscles and hysterical fears right now. Rox has been told to take rest this week..Please take care bb ♥
I somehow cut my head in a way, it was a small cut but it bled a lot, and even though it's minor size, I've had several people tell me that's gonna leave a mark. All I can say is, that won't be the first mark on my head anyway XD

I had a rather intense headache all day saturday, so I'm really sorry I wasn't too outgoing and cool the time of the meeting :( but since sunday my head has been fine, and I've been feeling fine! I wanna thank everyone that's sent me kind messages on FB. It's nice to know people care about what happens to me.
I won't go to the doctor unless I feel like the recent state is gonna take long to resolve. I'm gratefull enough that my head is fine anyway~

Back to the meeting!
Sascha and Jessica took such great care of us at the scene of the accident! And they helped us get to the meeting later!

We passed this street with my name in it
Photobucket

When we met the group the people were so nice!!!!! I talked to Bella and Gabriella and Kitai Fi and they were all so sweet and caring too and I got a cool bandage for my head~~~

First we went to burgerking. Rox was still so busy with arranging things, I can only immagine how enervating the day must've been for her.
Photobucket
(btw I changed my hair a little from the beginning, because the crash kind of cranked my style XD and the swollen eye too~)

We went back to the station after a while and a little later we could join the line for Purikura :D

Dear Sascha and Jessica took one with all of HYPER. I was so happy we had them to help us out all the time, they were great hosts~

Photobucket
(my favourite :D)

We had to leave after that because Rox' uncle who was so kind to pick us up and help us out had arrived.

We took a groupshot
Photobucket

and I butted into a pic of Pai and Rox
Photobucket
Mwahaha

And then we had to go.

I couldn't meet everyone, and the people that I did meet, I'm so sorry, we were all a little in shock and not super fab and social..

I DO hope that EEEVERYONEEEE will come to the international meet in Holland this summer :D

DIY two tone wig (and outfit)

Lately blogger had been bitching me a lot, I can't log on properly and it's just really weird XD I'll work on that when I'm less busy D:

maybe you saw my two tone wig in my last post?
I made that one myself using 2 wigs from a regular jokeshop. 2 wigs were 20 euros.
I'm gonna try my best to explain how I did it, with accompanying pics.

you need:
1. Two different color wigs
Photobucket
2. A marker.
3. Bobbypins or something else to hold the hair in one place
4. Needle and thread or a sewing machine.

the most tough thing in this is cutting the wigs in half, they will always damage and lose a lot of hair, but I think it's also cuz these were cheap quality that the construction is so..unstructured.

First try to determine the middle of the wig.
Photobucket

It helps to put the wig inside out, Photobucket

and fold it by taking all the supposed-to-be-even seams/tracks together.
Photobucket
This way I'm using my thumb and index finger to feel if the track is folded well.

now mark the middle
Photobucket

this line is visible on the top too.
Part the hair according to the line you can see on the other side.
Photobucket

now just cross your fingers and cut.

the crown of the wig can't be determined because the tracks are rotated in a way that you can't see well, but when you start cutting it gets easyer and if you can't find the track anymore, just cut, you'll lose a lot of hair but the swirl track system won't work if you're doing two tone anyway.

Photobucket
when you've got 2 halves, hold them together according to where the tracks go, and sew!!
Photobucket

this is the final result!
Photobucket

when you're done wear the wig and if one side is longer than the other, especially on the front, cut it even!

Photobucket
Photobucket

Sorry I couldn't explain more clearly *_*
It really is a lot of improvising..

Gaga inspired outfit (for Metro)

Well I told you about my new job right? I work for Metro, handing out newspapers in the morning, but this morning was a special one, as today Metro was released as the work of Lady Gaga, one-day-chief-editor.

Photobucket
For this occasion some of the handout girls were asked to wear Gaga inspired fashion during the job, and they shot a little promo video about the day.

Photobucket
I'm not a huge Gaga fan and my feelings have actually always been mixed, one side I love her music and fashion and her as an icon, on the other side it's different. But I think recently I've kind of gotten over it and as I love her fashion in any case, took up the job today.

Photobucket
These were the wig and shades provided.
But I thought that was not as cute as the wig and shades I used on the shots above, so in the promo vid I look something like this:

Photobucket
but with the jacket :( bit tacky but well~

it was fun to do and I earned money :D

Headshot and what's in stores (including food :X)

first little headshots from my thanx speech in the GGA
Photobucket
Photobucket
To be honest I hated this look on me, I didn't have time to fix my hair in a nice way and I'm finding out over and over again that I should just quit wearing those bangs, it's either symetrical ones or my hair should be pinned back.
when you're blonde it's not easy finding good bangs online so I might just cut these straight or try to dye the other ones I have (the color of which strongly mismatches)

Some stuff I found in stores in the past..million months *___*

Cute floral top in CoolCat
Photobucket
this store still has some of the best gal catches~

Cute floral pants that are EVERYWHERE are now in primark too:
Photobucket
(check out the cute shorts in the background, with the pleated edge)

Cute laptop/netbook/iphone skins (xenos)

BIG SAUCE ^

Outfit

This is an outfit from when I filmed the nominees video for the Gaijin Gyaru awards that I was asked to do ♥

Photobucket
I tried to make a tutorial for this hairstyle because someone asked me for it, but as it is I really hated the way the video came out and of course it never goes right at once but..well~
Photobucket

Photobucket
That time it was still pretty cold, so that's why the furry legwarmers were not that weird XD
Photobucket
Photobucket
I hope you liked it! That's a nice way to say bye to the winter for real, in all white and stuff~ Let's welcome back the winter stuff in september or something~!!!

Went over to Rox' place :D

soooorry I've been slacking D:

lately I've been ill and my exams are coming and I got a new job (not time consuming, but it kind of eats me on the inside you know?), so I guess I'm gonna be a bit busy for the next 3 weeks, I'm sorryyy.

But first!
I stayed over with Rox in her cute new house this weekend :D

outfit here :D
Photobucket
(not much space for posing in a charming way X_X)
Photobucket
Photobucket

And we tried out manba :D
Some of you might know I've done manba a couple times in a far past..I looked just the same as I did then *_* scary.
but I won't be posting that here now, I'd rather Rox post it on her blog first because it's part of her Gyaru Challenge
we might have to wait a while becase her laptop is in a coma XD

Sorry if there's not a lot of updates this month, I'm just really busy D: I try to keep it fun!
