Pink and blue bralet from Intésucré
It is super sweet and comfy! They also had a matching undie to go with it, but even trying it on over mine own, the elastic band was too thick and tad uncomfortable ;>__> The bra comes with thin padding you can take out, which is nice! Pink and blue bralet from Intésucré

Pink ballet bag from Syrup
I was able to buy Meno’s last pink ballet slipper bag from Syrup, and oh boy it is so cute! I’ve been drooling over it for such a long time, but the wait was worth it! Just didn’t know that it had a doily design behind the slippers, but it just makes it more sweet. Later visited Syrup’s new site in Shibuya, and it was the most adorable store I have ever visited. Powder puffs everywhere! Pink ballet bag from Syrup

My purchase from Milk was wrapped and given in this cotton bag before heading out for lunch! It was a nice touch from the store to give customers a re-usable bag for later.

During my trip I was able to spend a day just in Harajuku, and I found this adorable pin from Nile Perch!

Tomorrow I am flying back to Japan after living in the US for 5 years, and I am so happy that I’ll finally be able to go back home ;___; Even if it is for just 20ish days!! I am looking forward so much to being able to meet up with my old friends from YIS, go see my Grandma in Shimoda, visit my hometown of Yokohama and see what changes have been going around … and stuff my face absolutely full of everything I can possibly fit inside my mouth!! And shop for cute little tinker things and other adorableness … I have so many things I want to do and so few days to do it all!

Recently bought this adorably soft bralette, and it is so pretty I just want to wear it by itself with a skirt ;___; (the lace is so delicate). And the crop top is very light and comfortable, I love the florals on it!

Working on a commission while listening to Doug Loves Movies podcast. I actually like how it is turning out! And my new pretty lights around my window from Ikea just make me extra happy (ʃƪ ˘ ³˘) Working on a commission while listening to Doug Loves Movies podcast. I actually like how it is turning out!

Geometric breakdown of Alexandre Cabanel’s “Birth of Venus”




 We had a speed form assignment for our 3D Concepts calls, where the goal was just to simply design an “aerodynamic looking” form out of a block of 20 pound foam. It is more of an automotive design oriented project (I’m in game design), but I had so much fun regardless!
 I had issues with the primer because after wet sanding it, the layers shrunk down a bit, but I was still able to get a super smooth layer before applying the metallic paint and gloss. All the materials cost around 80$, half of it was just on the foam, which is pretty crazy. It’s currently at a exhibition at my college!
