Recent and future purchases, etc.

I am going crazy over this consecration already. It's only been the third day and I've already on the brink of having some huge outburst. I'm trying to keep myself together... 18 more days, Amb.. 18 more days...

Anyways, I wanted to share some packages that I'm expecting to arrive in the next day or so~

I finally brought myself along to purchasing from the site Style.ly, where I sell some of my clothing. Once in a while I look at one of the stuff that other users are selling. It's kind of hard to try to find shoes on the site since most people are US 8 1/2-9 and below. But then I found these...

Size 10. Good lord. I fell in love. And for a liiittle over $20? Yes please!

My feet aren't in as much of a good condition since I fell earlier this year so it's been difficult for me to walk in heels for too long, but my God, my God. These. yes. just. yes.

I've been looking for a nice pair for the summer, and these are just. PERFECT. The design, the embellishments, everything. No words can explain. I just squealed.

The only thing I hope for is that they FIT. Heels are so hit-or-miss when it comes to my feet, since my foot is a 25.5cm and it's just hard to really see if a 10 will be just right or too big. If there was a 9.5 option I would've went for that, but eh..

In any case, I can't wait for them to arrive on hopefully Wednesday~

Then I bought this Charlotte Russe shirt for 3 dollars... I'm just a bit concerned as far as sizing since this is an L and I'm usually like an M/L. I hate being in between sizes.

My bby Kammie put some new wigs up on her Mintymix shop and she's been torturing me with them! ;___; And when I mean torturing, I mean:

Kammie: AMBBBBBB <3 <3 <3 I got this new wiiiig u want ittttt
Kammie: Oh and I restocked the wig you always wantedddd
Kammie: Oh and then I got this prototype that I think you'd like a lot~

Now, I don't know if she's gonna really send me THREE wigs... but if she does... I'm going to spazz and cream everywhere. They are all what I basically thought to do with my own hair for summer.. but now that money's getting too tight to do the whole process with extensions, I am so glad to be getting these! I AM SO EXCITE

Now as for Otakon, which is coming up in exactly a month, I decided to go ahead and try for my Michiko cosplay-- my friend Nicole told me "I BOUGHT MY WIG, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED" so now I have no choice but to do this cosplay xD;

I've been trying to eat better and trying to push with the exercise, but it's hard now that I've developed a little.. issue and so I'm trying to be careful with exerting myself until the problem goes away.

I'll be Michiko (left) and Nicole will be my Atsuko (right).

My other friend talked about being my Hana/Hatchin but I don't know if she was really serious or not.. either way, this is really happening xD My first cosplay.

Michiko has so many outfits throughout the series. Like, at least one different outfit every episode. -At least-.
Long ago I was in the process of screencapping the episodes and making collages of her outfits, and I plan to finish that. Which outfit am I planning to do though? I have no clue.

Initially I was going to do the outfit shown above, but in case I can't lose all the weight I want to in time, I'm gonna go for one of her more covered up outfits. Maybe the denim jumper in episode 3 (since I already have one)? We'll see~

In the meantime I'm thinking about wig and lenses. I might just straighten my curly half-wig that I use for most of my outfit shots, since it's getting old and straightening it will probably help it look better at this point. It's not terrible-looking but I know that if I try to re-curl it one more time, it might not look good anymore.. so I'll just straighten it, and then just get another half-wig later. It should be the right length and everything, or if anything it might just need a little trimming.

Then I need to get grey/black lenses... since I probably won't be able to get my EOS Crystal Diamond greys in time (and I won't go for Duebas, not since the whole circle lens drama a while ago), I've been looking into alternatives.

My main (and probably final choice) will be GEO Flower Morning Glory Grays--

I kind of like the look, it's a bit unique and they'll probably compliment the look well. I wanted to try and go for something a bit flowery that wasn't overly cute, and I think these would be the ones. The only thing I don't like is that they are GEO lenses, which I've had problems with dryness/defects before, but I'll try to deal with them just this once. And speaking that Koreabigeyes are selling them for $11 until the end of June... I'm pretty much sold.

At my friend's booth we're gonna be wearing these maid costumes. Alek really liked this specific design because of the sweetheart design in front-- she got one for herself in her recent Taobao order just to see how it looks and it's perfect~ and super short xD

So for most of the whole weekend (like last year!) I'll be at the Alik's Cosplay booth selling lolita stuff. (booths Q04-Q06). So if you're attending definitely stop by!
