30 Days Lolita Challenge: Day 25 - 30

(Oh, before the start, let me point the little survey on my right side bar out to you! Please leave me a quick vote and/or a comment to the topic in the comments section, thank you!

Here we are, finally this is the last part of the 30 Days Lolita Challenge. It sure was fun to write all these entries, even if I prepared a lot in advance before I actually posted the entries. A month has passed (pretty fast, if you ask me!) and I hope you had some fun reading my answers to all of those questions :) The other entries can be found under the following links: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4.


Day 25 – Your favorite Lolita themed artwork.

Les Jeunes Filles by Maruka

It really wasn't easy to pick my favorite from Maruka's artworks, but I chose this one because I really like its theme. All of her artworks are absolutely stunning. I love her style and character design and admire her technical skills when it comes to colorations. You can follow her on Instagram for a glimpse of her amazing work.

Sharky's message

Hello humans out there!

My name is Sharky (simply called "Hai" in German) and readers of this blog might already now me or have caught a glimpse of me on a photo here or there. I am a little shark living in a small town in Austria together with my bigger and smaller brothers and a sister and the nice humans who adopted us.

My little brother is not on the photo, too bad! But my human friend Varis dressed up as one of us :) 

I am not from Australia, but Austria. As similar as the names might sound, the countries are very different. There are no wild sharks here, for example. My humans found me in an aqua zoo in Vienna called "Haus des Meeres" (House of the Sea) where they decided to take me with them. Some sharks live in the aquariums there, too, and my humans like to go there to watch them swim and feed. These are small sharks - white and black fin reef sharks, that would not be dangerous to humans even if they wanted to. My humans came to love sharks very much, and so they also grew more and more interested in the sharks out there, in the great big oceans of the world, and the problems that my brother and sister sharks face out there every day. Me, I spend most of my time chilling around, I like to play video games and watch TV with my humans. I have a very happy life. But from time to time, I realize that the outside world is not such a happy place as my home.

30 Days Lolita Challenge: Day 19 - 24

Oopsie, seems like this one got posted earlier today while I was away without me noticing!
But I hadn't finished the entry yet XD Well anyhow, now here's the whole entry with pictures!


The previous answers can be found here, here and here.


Day 19 – What’s in your make-up bag?

Ehhh I don't really have a make-up bag that I carry around with me ^^" I keep all my make up at my make up table and only take with me what I need when I go out, such as powder and the lipstick I used to re-apply.

About hair!

Hello guys!

Today I thought I'd just write a little entry about my hair and my current 'problems' with it, as I've really been thinking about what to do with my hair a lot these days!

My hair has grown a lot and is now longer than I ever had it before. The longest strands reach about to my hip, well past my waist. While I absolutely love the length, it can also be annoying when they get in the way. I started to realize how ridiculously long they were when sometimes strands would get caught in my belt buckle and such.

30 Days Lolita Challenge: Day 7 - 12

Better late then never - part 2 of the Lolita Challenge! This one's gonna be rather picture heavy, hope you'll enjoy it! You can find part 1 here



Day 7 – 10 people who inspire your lolita style.

I think this is my favorite question of the whole challenge :3


I have great respect for Arina, as she was basically the one who brought me into Lolita (even though we don't know each other personally). Her style is very versatile (check out her blog!) and I think with her friendly attitude towards me when I was a noob asking her thousands of questions and asking for her advice, she is a great Lolita role model.

Golconde

Salut mes chèrs, how's it going? Did you have a good new year so far?

Mine was rather lazy, but stared to be really stressful yesterday when I actually wanted to start cleaning our place for a party on Sunday, and suddenly I realized that my assignment for Project Management would be due... in 6 hours! So I really had to focus on that yesterday, and today was kinda stressful too because not only did I do shopping for the party, I also went to a small photoshooting.

A few weeks ago photographer Robert M. Detoyato posted in our Lolita community page on facebook that he is looking for Lolitas to model for a specific photoshoot. He wanted to recreate a piece of art, a certain painting, by staging and photographing it. I was intrigued by the idea but initially I didn't answer the call because I thought that the image he suggested was rather elegant and classic, and I thought my wardrobe would not be suited for something like that. But a while later, someone posted about the Australian Lolita Classic Paintings Shooting on our page, and so I kinda randomly threw the name of my favorite artist, Renée Magritte, into the discussion and suggested a recreation of one of his paintings.

Long story short, we agreed to meet for a short photoshooting session (it was really not longer than maybe 15min) and on the same day I got to see the resulting picture:


Photographer: R.M.Detoyato


And the original that inspired it can be found here.

30 Days Lolita Challenge: Day 1-6

Hey guys!
I know that some of my readers are not so interested in Lolita fashion, but nonetheless I've been wanting to do this 'tag game' for ages! The 30 Days Lolita Challenge is quite a long challenge, so I decided that throughout the whole month, every Friday I will post 6 of the questions in a summary - it's gonna be pretty long, sorry for that, but at least that way I won't flood the blog with so many lolita related entries :)

There's gonna be loooots of text but also lot's of pictures!
I hope you enjoy!
