EDIT: aghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh D:
Ok basically i messed up very badly on the top to the point were it can not be saved and it look horrible, due to exams i just simply don't have the time to restart of the top so i'm having to push this back. I aim to get it done in the week after expo cause i have no exams then and atleast then i can get some photos with mugi and (hopefully) ritsu. I'm so sorry guys DX

however on the plus side atleast now i won't die from heat because of that bloody jumper XD;

yeah i know but its causing me problems finding a dark brown wig that isn't like black brown and the right length D: i was thinking of going through it with a dark brown marker to make it darker

Awwhh, true, so hard trying to find the prefect wigs these days D;
I guess that would work but that would be so tiring seeing how long the wig is and you'll get the right colour if you do that, so yeah, go with it :D

To-Do List

We're very sorry, but we've temporarily disabled this feature while we fix some bugs. Thank you for your patience.


Top progress (Posted 9th May 2010)

started on the top this week, i've still got the sleeves and hemming to do but the rest is done. It didn't come out exactly as i hoped but i'm still pretty happy with it.

Update (Posted 20th January 2010)

ok the wig i wanted disappeared but i found this one and ordered it http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310195475249&ssPageNa... its much better than the last one tbh XDDD

i got dye for the skirt so i'll be dying it soon and i think i may end up making the top XDD

Ordered the skirt <3 (Posted 25th November 2009)

Yep i'm getting this skirt http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&Item=250510204357&Catego...

As i couldn't find one the right colour so i'm gonna have to dye this one, which will be fun time 8D -i want it to arrive already-

clothes~ (Posted 6th November 2009)

hopefully this weekend i'll be going shopping for sawako things. My aim is to find the skirt and turtle neck. if i can't find the skirt in the right colour then to find a light coloured one and dye it so i'll get dye after school one day if i need to do that.

Julians going camden tommorow too so i've asked him to look in the wig shop to see if they have a wig i could use.

peace out x
