Leipzig zoo, bookfair pics and random stuff: This is not a Rothenburg post!

Hello fellow kings, queens, princesses and rulers of the world <3
I hope you're all doing fine!

I don't have much Lolita news to share. I didn't attend Rothenburg or any convention recently. And I couldn't bring myself to wear Lolita in the past couple of days as my flat's just too hot at the moment. So I'm simply sharing pics of some lovely people, and from a trip to the zoo <3

So first of all, I finally managed to edit the pics from this year's book fair in Leipzig. Isa ( and me go there every year and it's always been a lot of fun. Though I must say that next year we might also look for other events as we were both getting a little unexcited. This year, cosplayers and lolitas weren't treated very nicely, as the organizers tried to separate us from the ordinary crowd. I do understand their points, and I don't try to judge their actions. It's just that maybe we should focus on other events instead? Hmmm...
Anyway, here are some pics of some very gorgeous people I was allowed to take pics of <3

Quite not so recently I met Franzi for visiting the Zoo in Leipzig! It was a lot of fun, even though not all animals were there. Especially the newly built areas are exciting. They even built a hall that makes you feel like being on a tropical island and it's so relaxing there. We somehow took an entry nobody seemed to notice. We had to pass long, mine-like corridors that were barely lit for the nocturnal animals and suddenly entered the tropical hall and it was just amazing!

They were running around freely, jumping in the trees!

↑↑↑ Franzi amazed by paradise ^O^ ↑↑↑ 

I also have some more random stuff to share. First, I was trying out those Wilton gum paste roses. I always thought you could actually eat those flowers. Well, indeed you could, but it's the consistency of (sweet) gypsum. Those roses are my first try and I'm afraid I'll leave it at that. That's okay since I finally managed to get myself away from sweets and any unhealthy stuff, and I don't want to give in to the temptation anytime soon >_< As soon as you get past the first days of not eating fatty or sweet stuff, you really start to feel active and very healthy! This is like.... my goodbye-sweets-cake :D

I usually don't post things I bought (wait, didn't I say that in my last post as well?!) but I was so relieved when my Sakizou tights finally arrived. It took them over a month (and I seriously only mean shipping) and I thought they got lost. But here they are, being all gorgeous and beautiful <3

I also finally got the original AP pony bag and the Soiree OP ↑↑↑ (and it's oh-so-beautiful, I couldn't stop wearing it) and more... stuff. I'm sorry, I just had to share this showoff/what's-inside-your-package-pic!
Talking of my greed, Fanu got me those wonderful Slytherin shirts, I can't thank her enough for this <3<3<3
I also received my  new contact lenses. They're SO bright and cool and I absolutely wasn't able to look friendly with them. It's just impossible. When I smiled, I looked even more scary. THEY'RE GORGEOUS!

Sorry, my old mobile doesn't have a front camera, so I can only provide wannabe-selfies. But I'll try to post a close-up soon and maybe I'll do a review on them, if I find where and which ones I ordered >_<
I'd love to wear them together with some ouji clothes but my skills still need to improve a lot. I'm really trying, but I only manage to get better by small steps. But I do my best and maybe some of my friends love this style as much as I do and we can dress up together and doing prince-things together <3... wait- what

Wish you all the best and take care <3


  1. I love your coords *__* they are always something very special and different from other Lolita outfits I see in Germany ^_^ I like that and that's why you are one of my Lolita idols, haha ^.^' Sadly I didn't see you at the bookfair >_< Otherwise I had admired your coords in real life :3 But the photos look really beautiful, the photographer did a great job ^_^
    Of course the models did it too ♥

    1. omg you're so cute and I feel so honoured, I don't even know what to say Q___Q <3 I think I saw you when I was standing on one of those bridges leading to the halls, and you were walking underneath! We didn't dare to run to you and say hello because nowadays it's so hard to tell if other lolitas want to talk with strangers or not, but we really loved looking at you and aaah that sounds creepy I'm so sorry ;__; Next time I'm so going to say hello! Let's take pics together then <3

    2. Oh thank you ^_^ I love to get to know other Lolitas, but I know what you mean. Sometimes I feel insecure too if other Lolitas want to talk or not @_@ usually I only take a picture, even if I would have loved to talk to them >_< I like to talk about the inspiration what other Lolitas had for their outfit ^_^ and generally about Lolita stuff xD oh it would be awesome if we could take pictures some day ♥

    3. Let's get over our shyness and talk to every Lolita that passes by >D
      And yes please! <3

  2. Du sieht einfach immer toll aus und bist so eine Inspiration*_* Ich hatte dich auf der LBM auch gesehen, als du DDC anhattest, aber habe mich leider nicht getraut dich anzusprechen>.<

    aber..nebenbei wieviel würde denn ungefähr ein Hut von dir kosten ?:) (Er sollte zu Sweetie Chandelier Pink mit goldenen Schuhen passen)

    1. Ich danke dir so sehr für diese lieben Worte <3 Ich hätt mich wahnsinnig gefreut, wenn du mich angesprochen hättest! Aber mir geht's da ja nicht anders. Ich hab immer wieder Angst auf Leute zuzugehen weil ich nicht weiß, ob die Leute das überhaupt wollen ;__;

      Aww Sweetie Chandelier <3 Das kommt ganz drauf an wieviel Gedingse du auf dem Hut haben magst! ^__^ Also wieviele Rosen, Federn, Bänder, etc. Soll ich dich über deinen LJ-Account kontaktieren der hier mit deinem Account verlinkt ist?

    2. nächstes Mal werde ich versuchen dich anzusprechen, wenn ich mich dann nicht für mein Outfit schäme ;)
      Am besten ja :)

  3. Hi <3 can you check out my blog? ^^ i follow back

  4. Huch, warum seh ich das erst jetzt? ^_^;

    Die Fotos sind super geworden! Ich hab mich gefreut dich - und auch Isa- dieses Jahr wieder zu treffen. Dein DDC Outfit ist wunderschön, und auch wenn ich es nicht in live gesehen habe, sieht die RRL Co-ord fantastisch aus.
    Auch trotz der etwas unfreundlichen Behandlung durch das Personal auf der Messe, hatte die LBM doch gute Seiten. Man trifft jedes Jahr nette Leute. ^_^

  6. Hello, Maria! How are you?

    I didn't know where I should write a comment, so I'll be leaving mine here xD
    I'd like to know if you could make a hat based on Cameo Window in pink and how much it would cost.

    Thanks a lot! ~ ♥
