[ PACT fashion 2010 Grad ]

( This is part of my catching up )

I joined this program called PACT
Basically it's a place where we'd go and design a prom dress for someone in need
haha needing a prom dress!
And then we'd make it with our amazing teacher Irene Stickney
I'm bad at explaining
Want more information?

I remember the first day I went
I was worried about it the whole time
I had looked up the address the night before
And it said it was a closed down rug store
So I was like "oh my gosh, what did I get myself into?"

So I traveled there after school, which took a lifetime and a half
Then I went to look for this rug shop
I walked down the street and there were these old men that were yelling at me
some nonsense like that
And nearby there was a gentleman's club
That looked wayyy too sketchy for my liking
On top of that, because of my amazing on time habits, I was early
And not wanting to be the first person there and endure the awkwardness that would occur
I went for a walk to kill 30 minutes

And then it started to rain!! SO GREAT ];
Gosh, then finally, I found the store
I had walked by it a million times wondering "where the rugs at?"
It was this pretty vintage clothing store, with amazing clothes at amazing prices
The staff there all dressed awesome too

I felt pretty uncomfortable
I was wet and carrying around my school bag and lost
Then this kind lady was all
"go downstairs! they're waiting for you!"

So I went down the insanely steep stairs into the basement to be amazed with amazement
It was like I had stepped into the manga Paradise Kiss
( If you don't know it, read it, it's the greatest manga ever )

There were images of haute couture decked upon the walls!
sewing machines everywhere, sergers, garments
A Judy!!
And everyone had arrived ahead of me

I was introduced to everyone
some people didn't have any experience with machines at all
But they all worked hard and did amazing jobs!

The next week we were given the game plans

We came up with sketches and fabric swatches
We were all a little nervous at first because the fabric was pretty bold
But no one said anything, we kept our trust in Irene and Jeanette
We knew they'd do something awesome

weeks past, and our progressed moved smoothly
Before we knew it we had hit our deadline
And the dress was completed

The beautiful Danielle ( the recipient of the dress )
Walked in, strutting the garment we all worked hard on
We were all amazed
Firstly, she looked amazing!
Secondly, to know that something we made together
Even though we were worried about the fabric
Even though we thought we had made major mistakes in the sewing of the bust
(that was the most difficult part!)
The dress before us looked far beyond anything we could ever make
We were so proud, proud beyond words
On top of that we were visited by the Star newspaper
We were all interviewed and had our pictures taken

We were also given certificates of completion.
And were given food!! Good food
(Special thanks to Irene's mom)

It was an amazing experience, one that went by really fast
But I gained a lot of knowledge
And I met some amazing people that I know have and will continue to help me in the future
I'm so happy to be a part of something so amazing
I will never forget this.

[ Epic Day ]

( This is part of my catching up )

For all who don't know, I'm madly in love with Miyavi
His music is pretty pro, though I don't listen to it much
And he's uber talented
(As well as uber HOT )
And as some of you may know, he came to Toronto
Yes, my hometown ; D

So of course I had to go and see my husband [:

This is how the crazy research began
I looked up pictures on the web of Miyavi's different tattoos
And if you know him, he has a hell of a lot of them!
All very sexy
But I made it my goal to mark up my body with them [:
And I achieved that goal, yes I did!

Though some of them are inaccurate, I tried my best
And I'm glad I did [:

I also went out of my way to do my hair all epic in his style,
makeup, and get a new outfit
Just for my Miyavi

Unfortunately, we weren't allowed to take any pictures in the venue
(They took my camera and took out the batteries!)
Butt it was an amazing night
I yelled like crazy,
and I know he heard me because it was when the whole place was dead quiet
I made hand gestures telling him to come closer
And he did, so he must of saw me at the front waving at him
He threw water on us! I really didn't want to shower after that ]:
I also had a moment where I tried to show him as many tats of his that I had
And he looked at me and smiled
and I knew it was me because I was wearing incredibly high boots that blocked everyone behind me
And EVERYONE was behind me xD

"What's my name?"
"What's my fucking name!!!???"
"Where am I from?!"
He swore so much, it was amazing,
He's so cute, it was just
indescribable, and I know he noticed me!
Which makes me even more happy

That was a good night

[ The Red Tea Box ]

( This is part of my catching up )

So a while ago me and some friends journeyed downtown

And we went to the Red Tea Box

A friend of mine told me about it
And I fell in love, so we HAD to go, cause I said so

I'm surprised I have friends sometimes

The place is amazing!!

they served us melon water, which was like amazing to me
Because I never knew honeydew melon could add so much flavour to water!
We only got the lunch bentos ( mainly because we were hungry )
But they have AMAZING desert bentos and they pair it with teas that are just so perfect together
It's so cute and pretty, I recommend everyone go

It's 696 Queen Street West (Queen street west and Bathurst )
For all you Torontonians!
But beware, it's a small place and they only allow groups of six!

It's just soo perfect,
and I really want to have a lollita tea party there!
Have to put that on my list of things to do before I die la~


[ Anime North 2010 ]

( Yes this is part of my catching up )

As some of you may or may not know
I'm a hugeee otaku, like everything Akibahara and shizz cho banchabancha
So I was given the awesomee opportunity to work as a maid in a maid cafe at anime north!!
You have no idea how happy I was to be selected out of however many applied ( xD )
It was so much fun, getting to learn the dances, seeing the maid outfits
And meeting the other maids~ !
They were all very nice, which was surprising
Because pretty people generally aren't nice ~ like me lol
But they were so it was like WOW YAH SO AMAZING
I also got to buy a petticoat!!
( to put under my maid outfit )
But I deff wear it under everything now x3

When the day finally came I was incredibly nervous
everyone else was all calm, practicing our dances and greetings
and I was breathing heavily, getting butterflies,

But when we got out there
and mune mune kyun started playing
I was in THE ZONE
I maid'ed it up! xD
I was so proud too! My friends also came to support me
( thanks guys )
And they also turned out to be the first table I served
( even better cause I'm HORRIBLE at talking to people )

This is one of those things that will be with me forever
And was a great experience!
I'm so happy

one thing off of my list of things to do before I die ~ hahaa

my friends dressed up ~ so cuteee

Hime gyaru ^^ So cuteee

[ Death ]

So it's been kind of forever since I last posted
And I assure you, this wont happen again!!

I'm dedicated : D

But also as of late a lot of stuff has been happening
But it's all done, and all I'm doing is rambling

So massive posts of things I've been doing will be posted within the next couple of days
Because since the beginning of summer break I've been at home
With nothing to do o_O
It's horrible, really and truly

But thankfully, my birthday is coming up ~ YAYYY
I'm turning 18! I know I'm so old T^T
But it will be fun times ; D

okay I'm out for now
Can't wait to update
