Meet my poupee, CalaMari.
Don't you just love the tea party background?
Haha, so this was my first time making a gif. I've always wanted to try and here I see I've made a grainy one. Not very good quality at all, but oh well. I like it enough. I am proud. Tee Hee :]
If you've never heard of the Poupee Girl game, it is a Japanese website where you can dress up your own character. In case you're wondering poupee is French for doll, so you have a virtual doll to dress up. It's fun because you can go virtual shopping for your doll. You use "ribbons" as payment and the way you get it is by playing on the site and doing certain things: Logging in, uploading pictures of your own real items, commenting on other people's items, and more. Poupeegirl is also a great way to have a virtual record of your closet.
I think it's pretty awesome and it helps me when I'm trying to save money. I can see all the good stuff I have in my closet and I can go virtual shopping without actually losing money! I also try to dress my poupee in lolita clothes since I don't get to wear lolita as often and my loli closet just isn't as big as my poupee's! Tee hee!
If you play on poupeegirl, add me as a friend and we'll collect ribbons together!
If I convinced you to play too, let me know!

Week of September 19
School has been super busy and I just didn't have time to really work at a design, so I went with just a solid color. Not even an overcoat (hence the chipping). I choose brown because I thought it'd be nice for the upcoming fall weather. Although, in SF, September seems to be time for Summer weather... Haha, oh well.

Going to classes isn't the problem for now, especially since there isn't any real homework yet. It just gets so tiring to see so many people all of a sudden. Then there's the uncertainty of everything. New classrooms, new teachers, new classmates. The uncertainty of what the class and professor are like and whether I will know anybody in my classes.
Then there are the (what feels like a gazillion) organizations tabling and passing out flyers and making announcements. And to think, I'm part of a few of them. Ah, it gets fun though.
Seeing old friends I have been missing since the last semester is the best part of all. They make school fun even through all the hard work.

I don't know much about the "Wild West" though and not much about telegrams either except that they say STOP instead of using periods. It was still pretty cute.
It came in a small manila envelope and the telegrams was just a regular, thin piece of paper, but it was printed to look like an old telegram. I'm not sure how they're really supposed to be, but I always expected telegrams to be on sturdy paper and to arrive without an envelope (and also be hand delivered, but you can't help that much these days).
Check them out if you'd like.

If anyone's curious, I registered on Day 2.
I was so upset this morning when my boyfriend received his Welcome e-mail. We registered at the same time and he's the one who told me to check my e-mail. I wasn't so much upset because he had it and I didn't. I was mostly upset at the fact that we didn't get to explore it at the same time, together. I just really got my hopes up. I couldn't tell him wait until I got my Welcome e-mail. He's been waiting too and I would definitely say that he's the bigger Harry Potter Fan. Without a doubt. Plus, he's going on vacation soon and won't be able to explore while he's away. I'm not upset at all anymore! Tee Hee! XD
So I leave you with this:
My trusty Harry Potter 3D Glasses! I will never stop using these.
I watched the Glee 3D Movie today(15th) with these.
**HINT** Stay until the VERY END

This one was my attempt at the Medival Shield. It was on all of my nails, but it just didn't look right, so I took them all off, but I couldn't bring myself to take that last one off because I had worked so hard on them. I also kind of made the sparkles gradient, but I'll try it on my whole nail next time. I still liked it enough. I took the picture a little to late in the week so the polish on my middle finger is kind of chipped.

Week of July 11
My nails for my Harry Potter Week! Not special at all right? I was planning on painting it over with Black Crackle Nail Polish to finish off my Bellatrix Costume, but I never bought the polish in time. That whole week was rushed with my costumes because I still had to deal with my accounting class.

Week of July 18
I'm finally wearing a super light color. I had been seeing mint everywhere and I've been wanting to try it. Personally, I think this may be a bit too light for me. I am glad I wore them for a nice sunny week this summer though.

Week of July 25
My Bellatrix nails! Too bad I didn't have these for the day of! I don't know if these nails will ever get to see my costume...
(Sally Hansen - Time to Shine, Sally Hansen - Ink Splatter)
I waited to paint my nails again this time because one of my friends planned a hang out which included painting our nails. It was a super fun way to catch up with old friends, even though I'd never done it before. Haha, already 20 and I never painted my nails with friends.
Any hoo, two of my friends helped me with the polka dots because I fail at them. Most of my time went towards that one purple flower.
Sorry my nails are chipped in the photo, I didn't take the photo until the weekend...
At least now I can cross off polka-dots/stripes mix and vintage floral off my list now, but that doesn't mean they won't show up again.
(I can't name any of the polishes because they're all my friends. I know a bunch of them were Forever 21 though)
Week of August 8
My newest nails! Totally not what I originally planned. The original idea included crackle polish. It ended up looking like a blob of black. Anyways I have here, split black/silver on every other finger and the pointer and ring fingers have plain grey. The silver was made by layering a sheer silvery brownish purple color over the grey.
(Sinful Colors - Black on Black, Sally Hansen - Grey Area, Santee - Brown Speckle)
I think from now on I'll try to post all my nails from one month into one post.
I suppose August's will be quite small because two of them are already here. Oh well, Please enjoy!

Now, for the big day! This is us before leaving the house. Nice normal picture.
Now us trying to pose? Haha.
My friend with a Professor McGonagall Cosplayer.
Here is my friend and I with a Luna Cosplayer.
Now here's another Professor McGonagall Cosplayer. She was so sweet. She let us borrow some wands for the picture. I know it doesn't make sense, but I wanted to be in the picture too XD
So now, I just want to let you know how sorry I am for my inability to pose. I must work on my confidence. Also, Bellatrix and I are NOTHING alike. I am not an actress... Oh well. I just love dressing up!

I must say though, that it was very different to walk around the theater that Thursday. There were so many people waiting in line to see the midnight showings of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II. There were even people waiting for the 3 a.m. showing. It was crazy.
So just to recap my outfits that week:
- Day 1: Unfinished Bellatrix Costume
- Day 2: Kind of Gryffindor, but mostly looked like Hufflepuff
- Day 3: Slytherin School Girl
(Order of the Phoenix & Half-Blood Prince)
- Day 4: Full Bellatrix Costume
(Deathly Hallows Part 1 & 2)
I'm the one in the middle. Can you guess what everyone's dresses like?
Sorry the pictures are not clear and pretty dark.

Please readers, learn from my mistake and don't sit with your laptop close to the edge of the top bunk of a bunk bed. Watching it drop was not fun!
You'll be seeing some changes in older posts because I'll finally be able to add them and my future posts will definitely include pictures! I am so sure that will inspire me to post more! I've been thinking about it so much recently!

- It is mostly going to be a sort of random blog about myself.
- I am going to post about my day and especially about events I attend and what not.
- I also want to take this chance to post Outfit of the Day shots. Constructive critisim will be gladly welcomed!
- I would also like to post my thoughts on certain subjects, these things just take up my thoughts at night sometimes and I would like to share them. I will not be doing these posts quite yet. Not untill I feel comfortable with it.
- I also want to post about the many arts and crafts I do. Such as, jewelry, sewing, cards, or whatever I feel like making at the moment.
- Lastly, I want to post random photographs I took. I am not a professional at all. My camera is a simple point-and-shoot. I just like to take pictures of random things I find interesting or cute.
I know this seems pretty general, so here is a little more about myself so you can have some insight on what my posts will be like:
I attend San Francisco State University. I am Pilipino-American. I am very involved with many cultural organizations at school. Just to name the ones I am most involved with: Pilipino American Colligete Endevour (PACE) and Asian Student Union (ASU). I really like cute things. When I think of cute things I think of kawaii Japanese trinkets. I am into Gothic Lolita Fashion. Although I have not really been following many Anime and Manga recently, I am still into Anime and Manga. I like to attend conventions. I have been to Fanime and Anime on Display (AOD) and I would love to attend more! I really like arts and crafts. If I could have an unlimited supply of everything at JoAnn's, I would sit in my room crafting all day, everyday.
Well, that is it for now! Thank you for reading even though I wrote too much!
You can now get a glimpse at what my future posts will be like if you look at the posts before this one. They were all just moved from old blog posts and edited a little
