Wishing for entertainment

Who says florals are for spring?!

I decided totally last minute to go to this year's Heroes 'n' Villains party anyway. I didn't want to go in costume though, since it was held at an open club. So I opted for a Genie that my heart's been aching for these past weeks.
I was happy about my decision to go casual - so many drunken 18-year old looked at the others in perplexed surprise. And I was even more happy about going - it proved to be a fun dance and I even got to see some friends getting engaged!

I got an email from the Royal Theatre about a special promotion for the ballet being shown the next day - all tickets were 75 kr for students! That is incredibly cheap so I quickly snagged up one and invited first-time-ballet-watcher Maria with me. 
We joked she might get to see the Queen on her first ever visit to the theatre and well... she did! Really funny that she came!
As always I was mesmerized. A little less than usually, due to the lack of WOW costumes in The Death in Venice.

We kicked off the semester in style at the big party at uni.

Through a former Disney colleague I scored free tickets to the Circus. I don't remember the last time I had visited one... I'm thinking maybe India in '04. So it was great fun!

We enjoyed the acrobatics a lot!

i have the body of a siren and the sea is so loathe to be parted from me that it left imprints of its waves on my thighs (source)

I had a nice evening out with my family and close family friends last weekend. We ate gourmet pizza and then went to watch The Hundred-foot Journey. I thoroughly loved it, possibly because it showcased the two cultures I've spent the longest times living in abroad growing up: Indian and French. It was a lovely film that allowed me a trip down memory lane - and watching it with the people I'd done those travels with made it all the more nostalgic. 
It even felt like a little piece of me I'd lost to all the stress of uni life came back to me...

A Maze of nostalgia

A few days ago I snagged up these new glitter pigments and a new über dark lip colour and while trying them out I suddenly felt inspired to throw together these. I don't really know what I was trying to pull off - dark princess? Madonna Temptress? Whatever it is, I really like it!

During one of the bigger rain showers of the past few weeks my parents and I ventured inside a small gallery for their Julie Nord exhibition. I really like her creepy style and this was her first more coherent exhibition with the theme "Family" leading you through the nursery - complete with creepy  horse on the floor - to the dinner table.

Afterwards we went to buy take-away cake but ended up staying at the award-winning CheeseCake bakery Berthels. Gosh, that lime one was unbelievable!

Gabi treated me to a hot coco from Hotel Chocolat! This was with caramel as well - can you say yummy?

I've been feeling nostalgic about lots of things lately. With the 1st of September, the Potter wave hit upon once more and I finally read to the end of Dear Mr. Potter. The first tries ended in slobbering tears and a broken heart, haha.

The end of EGG magazine's reign has returned my love to gyaru style once more. Even though the sort of OUT THERE gal might not still exist, it will probably forever be the style that I enjoy the most. It's just so EXPRESSIVE. I used the final strings of wig hair from my Hera wig as pink-ish volume in my bun, haha!

It's the details that count...

 Every year I try to go to some Buster Film Festival screenings, since they are super cheap and usually really well-chosen! This year I was only able to go to one, since the others that interested me coincited with classes. 
I went to an early screening of The Maze Runner last week for a ridicilously little amount - and then by some unprecidented miracle the theatre staff ended up giving us an additional 50 % off! We got goody-bags, wee.... Ok, I might have seen this mostly for Dylan. But I am also such a sucker for sci-fi - plus that boy from Love Actually is in it!
I liked it a lot - it'd been a while since I'd jumped in my seat that many times during a film. It was so exciting!

Catching up to Genki2014


Before Summer came and went Genki was held once again. Thursday Kenny and Sascha arrived in my home and we went for a short shoot in my Astrid!

 During the week before the con I put a few touches on Hera and finished two new cosplays: Powerline dancer and Mimi!
 The Powerline wig is made out of two wigs I just had lying around!

Showing you some Hera progess, even though Genki wasn't the debut. The wig's wire was sown into the wig, then covered in painter's tape, paper machéed, and covered in some layers of horisontal hair before the final vertical layers. 

Sadly upon arrival to the Arena I already felt done with the convention - I was tired and not in a good mood for mass socializing. But I kept to my friends and had such a lovely time nontheless! Friday's Genki was spent first in Hera and then in Astrid.

I think I matched the decorations pretty well!

Saturday we didn't have to get up crazy early, which we were all ecstatic about. 

Rehearsalllls. And I fangirled so hard over Emma's Thumbelina.

Along came show time and we were the closing number. The energy wave of screams and cheering that hit us while performing was unbelievable!

That noise scored us the Crowd Favourite award and the judges gave us Alpha Omega as well! So crazy to win two prizes for the 2nd year in a row - I am so flipping surprised and amazed by the amount of love we got.

We relaxed and had a small pizza party outside - where most of the convention was spent due to stellar weather.

More great decorations! That blue rose gave me life.

Allan-coke! Perfect for Genki! And we went to a super boring Otaku Hour - but managed to still have a semi-good time. And Kenny was a doll and came to pick me up (can you say super sweet?)

Mimi took far longer to make than I had anticipated at first - I spent a long time on the hat (forgot how long my Jessie process had been) and that country trim was not as snappy as I had thought it would be! Ended up burning the edges as a seal.

Dear Emi was my Tai and we awakened loads of nostalgia in people and a few asked us to wear them again because they wanted to join the Digi-fun! Looking forward to that!

Most of Sunday was spent on the benches a little away from the Events plaza - which meant quiet and shelter = everything I needed as a con worn-out gal!
