Back to life

Yo!


It’s quite a long time (LOL) since my last update, how are you all?
It took me a year to update again this blog. Lots of things happened in my life, especially since I’m working really hard (I’ve got a full time job), and then I had a fashion crisis and I spent this year dressing like a tramp ahahahaha. I also attended a couple of conventions, I met new friends and re-invented my relationship with my boyfriend; I lost some friends and my phone, but it hurted more the phone loss ahahahaha. I gained a lot of weight, I didn’t take care of myself for AGES, I also thought gyaru was changing me, putting me under pressure. I went through a total crisis ahahahah. Well, it was not gyaru which put under pressure, neither my friends or my boyfriend, or my work. It was only me 8D well, better late than never. Now I’m searching myself again (it should be the 3289784th time I try to find myself, maybe I should stop avoiding me ahahahaha) and I’m giving another try to gyaru :3
Such a pity, btw, because I’ve noticed many gals quitted the scene D: I’m currently reading old blogs and collecting old models pics from Tumblr, Codenote and FB… ahhhh.
Anyway enough chatting, I’ll show you some pictures from this year!

I didn’t write about it, but on December I attended a small local Harajuku fashion meet. There was only another gyaru (except me), we both felt kinda lonely ahahahaha. Sadly most italian gyarus live in north italy!
But me and my gyaru friend we’re trying to convert other friends of us into gyaru ahahahah!

This was my outfit, totally by d.i.a
except for the cardigan (GOLDS Infinity)
Group pic



The maleficent trio





Then in a blink it was New Year’s Eve. At that time I started something like a “gyaru meme” to improve myself, but it didn’t last long ahahahahah!

Again, a d.i.a outfit.
My exte were quite a mess after a drunken night ahahahah
 


Ah I got my nails done from a professional for the first time!

Easy design but I loved it!

I also made a lot of shopping during winter time, but I’ll do a proper post later.
Just a tiiiiiiny preview ~

mbok order


bought from Chiralicious~

Coff. Bought too much coff.


I acted in a parody video about gamer girls ahahaha

So then I was like this, but after I was like this:

and then this!


I’m obscenely cherry red! Yes I dyed my hair, I love sooooo much this colour~ I can’t wait to try gyaru with it!


On June I attended a local comic convention. It was the last time I dressed up :3



Wondercon in Bari!

Idol concert! Shiki Project ~

There was a purikura machine! It was my first time using one!!

Purikura made with my girls, you can see my agejo outfit (total MA*RS)




On July I attended another convention in Rimini. I was in cosplay most of time but on saturday night I dressed up slightly in gyaru style. I had already left it that time.

Top, belt, necklace: d.i.a
Skirt: Amisu
Bracelet: diavlo


Bonus pic LOL

At that convention I got robbed and so I lost my bag with my precious phone sigh. That’s why I don’t have many summer pics.
Misfortune kissed me, I also got a tendinitis, I almost broke with my boyfriend, lost some friends, my birthday was quite awful, I also had troubles at work LOL. Now I’m really happy to say that my misfortune left me XD


That’s how I dress up now, I’m a lot into grunge style and I’m not going to quit it. I’ll switch it with gyaru as I wish. This evening I’m going to a party and I’ll dress up gyaru after a long time! I’m so excited!
And on December there will be another Harajuku meet in my town, I can’t wait!

Ok, that’s all for today. I’ll update soon, I promise I won’t after a year again ahahaha!
Bye bye,


Do you want to build a gyaru mobile phone? – Android Gyaru Cases, Themes & Apps

Hi gals!

Today I’m gonna talk about one of my biggest obsession: my mobile phone!
During my gyaru experience (started about 6 years ago) I noticed that a lot of japanese gyaru owned cute, decorated mobile phone, covered in glitter, stickers and decoden. And I wanted one too!

Ahhhhh they’re just perfect!
But the more I searched for gyaru phones, the more I noticed that all the cute apps, cases and themes were just for Docomo and iPhone >_< what about Android phones?!
So I searched a lot through Play Store, tried lots of apps, bought suitable cases and made them myself, and whatever I needed to get a fashionable mobile phone.
Today I’m gonna share my best ideas and finds!

CASES


My phone (Samsung Galaxy S4) and my cases!
MA*RS ones made by me, Chanel one is a replica bought on taobao!

Screensaver lol

You can see my favorite cases here! After I saw that MA*RS did some cases for iPhone (and cover stickers for Docomo) I wanted one too, but too bad they didn’t make cases for other mobile phones except iPhone and Docomo -.- so I did one by myself. Guess how I made it?

My case…

…that actually is a clear case with a piece of printed paper!

Yes, I just bought a clear case and printed some MA*RS print I found on google, then cut them into the case shape and VOILA’! Now I have lots of MA*RS cases! You can also add gems on the case corners to make it more blingy, like I did on the black MA*RS case next to the Chanel case.
You can use Ank Rouge, Liz Lisa, d.i.a prints to make your case suitable for your style. You can find a high selection of brand prints here on Universal Doll. Actually they are phone wallpapers like this MA*RS one, and here we are to the next point!

THEMES



There’s only one app who can save you when you need themes for your phone. That app is [ + ] HOME.
This app is a real gem. It has a lot of selections, suitable for many styles as Lolita but also gyaru! Here’s my favourite ones!
Glitter Rose

Leopard Hearts

Zebra and Roses

My favourite and current theme: Decorative Hearts!
There are lots of other themes like Glamorous Glitter or Gothic Butterflies, just try this app and search for your favourite one!
But if you’re craving for some brand themes, here are the apps made for you!

Ma*rs english free app! It installs on your phone a MA*RS search tool 
and it also has an animated wallpaper that sparkles when you touch it!
Ma*rs japanese app, it costs 2,03€.
It creates ma*rs themed icons and has a wallpaper in 3 colours.

Let’s see how the japanese one works:

The left button (lighted in cyan) creates icons.
Click on the icon you want, then click on “step 2” to select the app you want to link,
then click “step 3” to save it! It saves right on your home.
The right button (lighted in cyan) makes you select the wallpaper.
Click on the one you want to choose and click on the right answer.

The result. You can combine the 2 app to get wallpaper, icons and the sparkle touch!
If you’re more into kurogal there’s the XIII Japan app.
It costs 1,08€ and it works as the first app.
The same productor (NOS Inc.) did similar apps for ANAP,
Shinjeki no Kyojin, Ghost in the Shell etc
Here we are at the next and last point, let’s talk about useful apps!

APPS

MA*RS Battery Saver app!
It’s free and really cute!
 
Maybe you don’t need it but why don’t you save your battery in a fashionable way? Clicking on “Task killer” it closes all the apps left open (except for wallpaper and theme ones); it also tells you how much battery you have and has some button for quick apps like calculator and wifi settings. It would be better if it was a widget but it’s cute even as it is XD
Spring app. It’s a photo editor app and it’s free.

 The bottle button slims your figure, I recommend using pictures where your legs are straight (just not like this one lol); the spring button makes your legs thinner and longer (same recommendations as previously), the face button makes your face slimmer.


Beauty Plus app. It’s a photo editor app and it’s free.

 It has 3 functions: Self Portrait simply opens your camera and takes a pic to edit immediately, Beautify makes your figure slimmer, taller, improves your skin, retouches it in everyway; Magic Brush gives you a range of brushes to decorate your pictures.

Girls Camera app. It’s a photo editor app (the most interesting and difficult to use one)
 and it’s free.

 It gives you a high selection of functions! There are frames, brushes, backgrounds, filters, everything you can use to make your pics like purikura!

Did you notice anything strange in my pic?

Let’s check… Drawstamp function…

What? Eyecolor stamps?

Let’s stamp!

And here’s me wearing light blue circle lens!

 Yes, it has a circle lens stamp function XD you can select the colour and choose the size, it is a bit hard to apply but the effect is funny XD I think this is the most original app and really the most similar to purikura!

KiraDeco app. It’s free. It just has frame, stamps and glitter functions.

I found this one searching for “gyaru apps” lol.
If I understood correctly it’s a search tool for ameba blogpost.

That’s all! I hope you find this post useful :3 also I would love to see your “gyaru” apps and your phone cases!
See you next time!

A/W (and Christmas) Wishlist!

Hi there!

So sorry, it’s almost a year I don’t update ;_; I have lots of things I want to talk about… but sadly I don’t have pics now so I’ll update soon with all the news :3 I also hope to blog more now that I have a more regular schedule.
Today I just post my new wishlist, since I’m buying random things, not the ones I need and I have to stop XD

1. Ombre Extensions

Lately I’ve been obsessed with Ombre hair! I love the blonde x pink ones, they look so MA*RS-ish and they’re already curled so no pain for me ahahahah! The blonde x black ones remind me of Hideka-chan and I can’t wait to have them!! I will straighten and wear them in my d.i.a and goth outfits, I can’t wait *___*

2. Half wig

I need a half wig. I just don’t know which color should I choose, since my actual hair is blonde with some darker highlighting on the top… Maybe I’ll take the right one to match the extensions and dye my hair.

3. MA*RS belt

You know what? I’m again into agejo XD my d.i.a wardrobe is already quite big so I want to increase my agejo clothing now :3 I already own some tops by GOLDS Infinity and MA*RS, now I want dresses, set ups and of course a belt!

4. MA*RS dresses

I wanted those 2 dresses since a long time!!! I hope to buy them before summer ;_;

5. MA*RS bag

Nothing to say. It’s beautiful. And I need it in black.

6. MA*RS set up

I-LOVE-IT! It’s cute, feminine and sexy! I love tartan print in pink A LOT and this is totally a HAVE-TO-BUY!

7. MA*RS bra

Everybody keeps telling me how much beautiful are those bra, how big your boobs look in this, blah blah blah. Hey, it’s black, it has a pink bow, do you really need other motivations to make me buy it?

8. d.i.a jeans

I’m chasing them since forevah. Need size 26. Nobody is selling them. SIGH.

9. Etude House Makeup Case

My makeup desk looks a mess, so I need this so much ;_; I’ve seen it on Amazon but I’m trying to find it cheaper!

10. Black Cropped Hoodie

I ruined my old one so I need a replacement. It makes all your outfits kurogal-ish. I miss you ;_;

11. MA*RS lighter

I know, I don’t really need it ;_; but it’s MA*RS, it’s cute, they made it in pink, it’s a lighter so… maybe actually I need it? ;_;
I’ll buy it anyway.

So that’s all for today! I hope to update soon with some outfits and makeup.
Bye bye!

Quick Update: Picspam!

Hi there!
I just want to update with some recent pics (mostly my face LOL), I’m attending a formation course which is pretty boring so meh. I’m also working on/for 2 projects but I don’t wanna talk about it until they come out 😀 Have a great day!


My honey (on the left) is recording his first demo (he sings in a metal band), I’m so proud of him! And this evening they’ll do their second live, I’m really excited since I love their music!
I can’t wait!

 
 

 

Happy Halloween and A/W – Christmas Wishlist!

Hi there~
Yesterday was Halloween, so Happy Halloween to everybody ~

Did you celebrate the night of ghosties and zombie? Did you dress up? I did!




I was a cat witch/Cheshire cat, i think, i dunno xD i just did a heavy, melted makeup with lots of black and purple, black&red lipstick and wore cat ears and tail xD my honey watched me doing my makeup:
Honey: owo?
Me: *putting first face primer*
Honey: owo
Me: *putting second colored face primer*
Honey: owo”
Me: *putting concealer*
Honey: owo””
Me: *putting foundation*
Honey: owo”””
Me: *putting loose powder and bronzer*
Honey: owo””””
Me: And this is just the basics.
Honey: Okay, I’m not going to lick your cheeks anymore. I don’t want to catch a cancer.

XDDDDDD he was shocked XDDDDD

So, it’s time for my wishlist! Even if it’s still quite warm and sunny here in South Italy, the days became shorter and I already see Christmas hints around me, like candy-filled socks, my honey’s mother making Christmas decorations (she sells them xD) and sexy Santa costumes ahahah XD
My honey asked me what I want for Christmas; thinking about it I realized that I keep buying clothes randomly, so my wardrobe is a total disaster x,x that’s why it’s time for wishlist! Let’s start from the less important wish to the OMFGINEEDITINMYLIFE wish.

13. Sailor Moon Compact Powder & Lipstick


I’m a huge Sailor Moon fan! I own the manga and some figures and gadgets, so why not buy also the makeup? Those were the products I liked the most.

12. Garula Checkered Shirts (Brown, Blue)

One of this fall’s trends is checkered shirts combined with wool hats: I like this trend so much! I already own a d.i.a red shirt and a Calliope grey shirt, so I choose something from Garula (which became one of my favourite brands recently) in colours I don’t own.

11. Gilfy Black Wool Hat

See above! I choose a hat from Gilfy, a brand I’m learning to love recently~

10. Chanel Black Bag

I owned a replica of this bag a year ago, but it broke >_>” so it’s time for a new one! My primary style is Hard-Onee Rokku (which I’m still working on to achieve) so I need a high brand bag. But also a replica will be fine xDDD

9. Agejo High Heels (Black, Black x Pink)


Yeah. High heels. I HATE high heels, talking about shoes I’m such a child, I only love converse and boots! But converse look horrible with agejo clothes, so… Meh. It’s time to learn how to walk in those ordeal things.

8. GOLDS Infinity/DreamV Black Bag w/ Cellphone Holder (Only Black)


OMG I LOVE THEM. I fell in love with this kind of bag design a year ago, it’s cute, practical and big. Practically it has my name written all over LOL.

7. Flat OTK Boots (Only Black)

I use boots so much that I already had to throw away my old black pair, bye bye. So I need a new pair that would look good either with Agejo and Rokku clothes~ This design also has fur inside, so it should be pretty warm!!

6. MA*RS Leopard Rose Top

I love MA*RS skirts but I also hate them since they don’t look good with everything. MA*RS clothing looks good, REALLY GOOD, only with other MA*RS clothing. It’s like a rule to me.
I own two MA*RS skirts (Leopard Rose print and Perfume Bottle print) that I love so I need matching tops or accessories to make them look good… For Leopard Rose print I choose the top!

5. MA*RS Perfume Bottle Headband/Usamimi

See above. For Perfume Bottle print I choose this headband since I already own load of black tops.

4. Julia Boutique Belt (Only Black)

I need it! Sometimes d.i.a style belts don’t look good in some kind of outfits, but they still needs something! This belt is a good deal, especially for darker Rokku outfits.

3. d.i.a denim pants

Okay since I’m a derp I own many d.i.a tops but NO BOTTOMS. Only a pair of pull&bear shorts which I already wore too much. Totally need them!

2. MA*RS A/W 2013 Collection Dress (Only this print and design)

I don’t know what to say, it’s simply perfect. I want to wear it on New Year’s Eve ;w;

And now my no.1 item, my Saint Graal, my only love, my OMFGINEEDITINMYLIFENOW:

1. d.i.a outfit – shirt + skirt (Black + Brown Belt)



OMG I LOVE IT I WANT TO WEAR IT EVERYDAY OF MY LIFE (actually I won’t, I don’t like to stink)
PLEASE BE MINE
What can I say? It’s AWESOME. It’s the most perfect outfit I’ve ever seen and those pics don’t do justice to its perfection. AAAAARGH I’M DYING.

Okay dears time to go back studying now, I hope you enjoyed my post, and don’t worry: I’ll do the Graveyard Rose review, I just need some time to take proper pics! >_< see you soon!
Bye~
