Don't be such a crepe!



When I decide that I want to eat a particular kind of food, I'm essentially useless until I've got my hands on whatever it is I want. It pretty much consumes my entire being and I can't think about anything else. Tonight I decided that I wanted a strawberry crepe more than anything else in the world, and so Sam and I took a trip to Mothers Crepe + Chatime on Grote Street in the city.

I had Mothers Crepe on our trip to Sydney in 2013 and I kind of just forgot about it until today, when I remembered that there was a store in Adelaide and I didn't have to lead a sad, crepe-less existence. What's amazing about Japanese style crepes is that they often contain things that you probably wouldn't expect to be rolled up in a fluffy, delicious cone - like whole brownies or slices of cheesecake - and that's what makes them so bloody wonderful. I had the Caramel Strawberry Cheesecake Soft Ice Cream Special (try saying that three times fast), Sam had the Choco Banana Special, and we washed them down with a chocolate milk tea with sago bubbles from the Chatime side of the store. The crepes were a wallet-friendly price of only $6.50, and we were absolutely stuffed afterwards. 

In short, it was a quick delicious meal that didn't break the bank, which is all I really want when I go out to eat. tI think it's safe to say that my sweet tooth is satiated for at least another week, but I can't promise anything!

Belt // Forever New


This is going to be my last post as a purple haired magical girl, because tomorrow I'm going for a big change! I'm a bit scared because I've been purple for nearly two years, so I'm sure looking in the mirror and seeing something different is going to be a pretty big shock, but I'm excited to not stain everything I put my head on anymore. I'm also hoping one day Dangerfield is going to notice how many of my outfits feature their pieces and they'll ask me to be a model for them. Not likely, but a girl can dream, can't she?

Avcon 2014



Last weekend Sam and I spent our Sunday afternoon at Adelaide's local anime & video game convention, Avcon. It was the first time either of us had gone, and even though I was very sick (I've been basically housebound with a virus for the past two weeks) I had a really good time! I spent a couple of weeks beforehand sewing my first ever handmade cosplay (with a lot of help from my mum and my wonderful friend Lily), and if you're not familiar with your anime characters I was Asuka Langley Soryu/Shikinami from Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I didn't take any photos while we were at the convention because my eyepatch meant I had very limited eyesight, and I was focusing a lot of my energy on just remaining upright, but there were some really amazing cosplay efforts, especially in the cosplay competition! It really inspired me to work on improving my sewing skills and possibly competing next year. I'm excited to start working on my costumes for Adelaide Supanova, which is coming up in November, as well as one for Avcon 2015.

I didn't get to buy much because like I said, I was mostly concentrating on not passing out, but I did pick up these adorable Adventure Time themed brooches from Australian brand, We're All Mad Here. Brooches are my latest obsession, I want one to go with every outfit!

pastel dresses from ModCloth

It's shaping up to be a particularly dreary winter down here in the south, so I've been trying to counteract the effects of grey skies and rainy days by browsing for cheery, candy coloured clothes! These are some of my favourite picks from ModCloth, I hope you like them too!

Kawaii 'Til I Die

Vest // Made By Munster
Top // Dangerfield
Skirt // ModCloth
Shoes // Betts

I haven't made an outfit post in a while so I thought I'd share one of my favourite/most frequently worn getups from the past few months. My camera battery's bitten the dust so unfortunately I haven't been able to take any new outfit photos recently, but I'm doing my best to get it fixed!

I've also been hard at work on making custom vests for the wonderful people who pledged to my crowd funding project. It's slow going seeing as I only have two hands, but I'm getting through it, and I'm really pleased with how they're looking so far. I can't wait to share some of the finished product!

'Til next time,
