Angelic Pretty Toy Drops JSK Pink

Hello my lovely mauw-mauws,

hope you all had a lovely christmas!! ^___^
Today I like to introduce you to my newest JSK:
The Angelic Pretty Toy Drops JSK in pink.

my passion: Lolita-Fashion and Hello Kitty <3

The Toy Drops print was and is my second most-wanted-and-loved Lolita print straightly after the Fancy Box print. ^___^ As I discovered this JSK wednesday mornings at the Closetchild - Online Store I didn't hesitated and ordered it directly. This order made my day and I was pretty surprised that the JSK arrived then that quickly.  It was the first time that I ordered via Closetchild and I am totally satisfied with the whole transaction. The shipping was really fast and uncomplicated although I'd ordered in the pre-Christmas period. The Toy Drops JSK is in a way a christmas gift to myself (because I was THAT really gently this year X'DD).

Closetchild indicated that there is a lil stain in the center of the JSK below the pink bow, but I couldn't figure this stain out at their close-up photo beforehand and even now, having this JSK be there at my place, I simply can't find the stain.. just as well.. generally the JSK is in an awesome condition, just like brand-new. In total I paid 118,47€ for the JSK - what a good bargain. <3

Of course I had to do a few more photos of me wearing the JSK:




Do you think, me having straight hair while wearing Lolita-Fashion is also okay? Actually I am always having curly hair while wearing Lolita.. I was pretty uncertain about my hair during this little photo-session (thank you Don for taking a few photos ..hope I wasn't that great pain in the neck for you XD)

I am really looking forward to wear this JSK to a convention or a Lolita Meet-Up soon. ^o^


Thank you for reading! 
I wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR! May all your (good) wishes come true next year!

World Doom Baby Rats

Hello my sweet mauw-mauws,

almost two weeks ago, Don and I agreed in adopting Joy Snow again. As you might remember, I adopted Joy Snow back then in October. Actually, Joy is the pet rat of my sister Skullina. But due to the fact my sister's other pet rat, Ophelia, had been pregnant back then I agreed in taking care of Joy for a while. After Ophelia and her three baby rats were then healthy and big enough, I hand off Joy to my sister again.

So, WHY do I now adopting Joy for the second time (and now for good)?
Well, the reason why is that Joy was pregnant now! One of Ophelia's "baby" boy's made her pregnant. Now my sister seems to be a bit overcharged and now with another pregnant rat so I, or better, Don and I, complied for adopting Joy now forever and take care of her and her babies later on. Of course, Joy had to stay in a separate cage for now, my three other cuties, Vanilla, Carli and Luma are do not come in contact with her at the moment.

Joy's belly growed and growed and I was wondering how many babies she would have (to be honest, I was hoping that it won't be that many babies..). Day by day I get even more exciting about Joy giving birth to her babies and finally yesterday, at the famous "World Doom's"-Day her babies were born:

The 8 world doom babies, only a few hours old
They are eight in number and seemed to be fit. Joy also seems to be fit and is really lovingly to me and her babies (you always have to be careful with a pregnant/mommy rat, even a once docile rat can become more aggressive and territorial toward people). I was so delighted as I heard this softly squeaking of the new borns and Im really thankful that they are all healthy at the moment.  It's crystal clear that I can not and I won't held all her babies.  =( Maybe I can held one or two of her (female) babies, but this depends on whether how many babies are boy or girls. At the moment I cannot say how many babies are boys or girls, I guess in two or three weeks I can state it (and then one or two weeks thereafter I should slowly start to separate them by gender to prevent a new pregnancy). Happily, Kuraude consent to adopt some male babies. I am really happy about that, although I will have my difficulties with handing off those cute babies in a few weeks. =(( But when handing off some babies to Kuraude, I know that they will be in good hands and I can even "visit" them sometimes. ^__^ I want the babies to lead a fine life and if I could I would hold all of them at my place but I simply cannot live up to all of them - it wouldn't be fair.

For now I am hoping that they all grow up healthy .. =)

Do you know Gia?

Hello my cute mauw-mauws,

it's about time for the 5th part of my "Do you know"-series. Today I would like to introduce you to my friend Gia.


How we get to know each other?
Since Oktober 2007. We visited the same class at the vocational business school during our 3-year-training. After finishing our training successfully we stayed in touch.

What do I like the most abour her?
Gia is a pretty uncomplicated and enthuasistic person. It is really cute and funny to watch her when she is full of go. I am always looking forward to meet up with her, she is a refreshing person. Moreover, Gia began also to be a "Gamergirl" and Nintendo-Fan and so it happened that we visited this years Gamescom together. Besides playing games Gia is a big soccer fan, she even plays football professionally in a local football club which is pretty cool.

Any bad habits?
Well, Gia is on the other hand a person which creates panic for no clear reason. She is a pretty nervous person and tends to repeat herself again and again and then she gets hectic, sometimes I had to stop her and bring her back to the ground of the facts. ^__^

5 words which describes her the most:
- Joyful
- Exciting
- Football
- uncomplicated
- hectic


I am really happy that I know Gia and that we kept in touch. She is a good person, ful of joy and has her heart at the right place. Without her, the time during the business school had been more harder and lonelier. Gia, thank you for hangin' around with a "freak" like me ;D

5th Aix-La-Chapelle Lolita Meet-Up

Hello my lovely mauw-mauws,

today I like to write about the 5th Aix-La-Chapelle Lolita Meet-Up we had last sunday. This time Prospera took over the part as organizer and we met up in beautiful Maastricht. For all of you, who don't know where Maastricht is, Maastricht is a city in the southern part of the Netherlands, it is about an hour away from Aachen.

My task was to pick up all Lolita's at Aachen main-train-station at 11:30am so we could drive all together towards Maastricht. This time we would be only six Lolita's - my bestie Kuraude, Buschwindroeschen, Prospera (of course!), I and two new members: Lucie and Phoenix.
After a 70 minutes ride we finally arrived Maastricht "Station" and were picked up by Prospera. First of all we went through Maastricht's inner city to visit the christmas market.


me, Lucie, Buschwindroeschen, Kuraude, Prospera and Phoenix

After a short shopping tour we finally arrived the christmas market. The christmas market of Maastricht is pretty small but absolutely cute.



The giant wheel of the market instantly caught our attention:

I took the photo of the giant wheel afterwards in the evening

Of course we had to take a tour with the gant wheel (although I am a bit afraid of heights) . ^___^ But it was really a lot of fun and Maastricht looked so beautiful from on high also.

brave Usai ;D

Before we left the christmas market we ate snacks and then we entered the "Museum aan het Vrijthof". Currently the museum shows the exhibition "500 Years Made in Maastricht". The main focus are on the arts and crafts that have flourished in Maastricht of artisans, and have expressed its citizens’ cultural identity as tangible products of creative enterprise. 





In the museum, all visiting groups receive a Radio Frequency Identification - Chip. By means of this chip, the museum ‘knows’ exactly our location in the building. With such a chip the building responses to the visitor: lights switch on and off and voices are speaking to you and telling you storys about leading figures of Maastricht. Without the chip the doors inside the museum doesn't even open! 




Time for another group picture!
We strolled through each room and enjoyed our stay at the museum. 



Our last stop then was the Cafe inside the Museum. 
As I expected already in advance, the Dutch are pretty open-minded people. Never before we were that often asked about our fashion and never ever we received so much positive feedback. I really love the Dutch. The people from Aachen are also pretty open-minded (and Im really happy about that fact!) but no one seems to overcome the Dutch. The most heared dutch sentence during our day was "mooi meisjes!", which means "pretty girls". <3 Dutch is such a cute language. 


In summary, we had again a great Meet-Up. This time we could also welcome two "new" Lolita's for our Meet-Up series. I hope the two will join us again. 
And one thing is already by now for sure: We will visit Maastricht again - in the summer. ^___^

1st Little Lolita Friend Meet-Up in Düsseldorf

Hello my dear mauw-mauws,

a pretty stressful time is now finally over. This years EC's 7th Framework programme Calls - Deadline was really exhausting, our researchers wrote many proposals and I and my colleague had to check each proposal with focus of all those administrative and financial issues. But well, now the deadline is already over and I am able to write a new post (finally).

The last few weeks happened a lot, but today I like start writing about our lil Lolita Friends Meet-Up last saturday (that saturday was also the official "International Lolita Day"). I met up with my bestie Kuraude, Fraeulein_Elisabeth and DreamingTasuki. As we met up the last time in Dortmund (Lolita Meet-Up - Sushi & More), we decided that we simply HAD to meet us again and as soon as possible. Actually, PrincessTenko wanted to join us also but unfortunately she was tied up with (business) matters.

We've met up around 11:30am at Duesseldorf Main-Train Station and went then to the famous "Japan Meile". There we made some Purikura picture of us - what a fun ride that was!!


I really love the fact that we all have different hair-colors! =D

GHOST ATTACK!


Im already falling off the picture XD

かわいいですね!

Shortly before we entered the Purikura-Automat we get to know some nice Japan-Fans and "Santa Claus".
They all were really cute and they absolutely wanted that we perpetuate us in their Con-Hon's.


As we already wanted to left the store, some girl asked us whether her norwegian friend could take a photo with us. The norwegian girl knew the Lolita-Fashion but we were told that she never ever saw some Lolita's in "Real Life" so she was pretty happy as she detected us. =D



Our next stop then was a japanese/asian grocer shop a couple of meters away.


I really love the boxing designs of asian products. There are mostly pretty colorful and flashy <3


After we stock up ourself we moved along to "Takagi's Book Store" and later on to a little japanese bakery:


Japanese people seem to like "french breakfast" and bakery. In the bakery you can buy many sweet bakery stuff, like for example biscuits with chocolate centre. <3 I have a sweet tooth. ;)

We four chatted a lot and I guess we all enjoyed the day and had fun. It was great spending the International Lolita Day with those three lovely Lolitas. <3 Around 5:30pm we all went back home. It was already dark now and it was getting colder and colder. Im really looking forward to see Fraeulein_Elisabeth and DreamingTasuki again (when it isn't that cold anymore XD) and what a shame that we are living that wide apart. =(

AND last but not least: My bought items this day:


A Final Fantasy XIII Post Card Book with GREAT pictures inside and a mega-cute Pokemon orange-soda-drink which I will now use as a decorative item in my kitchen.. ^___^

52 Wochen - Exhibition Opening and Preview

Hello my dear mauw-mauws,

as you might now, I've got the oppurtinity to take part in a photo exhibition. The exhibition is called "52 Wochen( / Weken / Semaines)" and I had my photo shooting for it back then in March (see 52 Wochen - Exhibition Photo-Shooting). The photo project should show the variety of people living in the Euregio Maas-Rhein.

The exhibition opened officially yesterday, on Friday the 16th of November in the Nadelfabrik in Aachen, but since last monday the photos/potraits of the exhibition were also shown in advance at the Aachener Citykirche (Nikolauskirche) as large-screen presentation. Crystal clear, that I had to take a look at this presentation - I am a pretty nosy person! =D

When we entered the church there was no way to overlooking the large-screen presentation of 52 Wochen. Don and I sat down for a moment and then my photo were shown:

yay! XD
It's a strange feeling to know that people will see this photos - and also the photo of me. On the one hand I am happy about that, but on the other hand it is scaring me also a bit, hehe. ^__^6 But this is something I now have to deal with - I knew what I am getting into.

Inside and in front of the church also were stand-up displays, posters and flyer to promote the upcoming exhibition.




 Yesterday evening then the official exhibition opening took place. I was pretty excited about how such an exhibition opening would be. I never ever visited such an exhibition opening before. If Don hadn't joined me in going to the opening event, I guess I wouldn't have been there. Sometimes I am a quite shy person. U_U

The opening of the exhibition was better attended than I thought. Well, the exhibition's welcome adress were even served by Aachens current lady mayor Dr. Schmeer. Needless to say, that I arouse a lot of attention - I weared a (bit more Casual) Sweet Lolita - Outfit.

double Usai

It was great talking to Marco again and in general talking with a lot of people. I only received compliments for my outfit, but I am even more happier to explain and show them Lolita-Fashion in general. I felt very comfortable.

lovely Don <3

During the exhibition you could buy high-quality prints of the photos and a picture book of all 104 photos and persons. Everyone were so friendly and I even should autograph the picture book of the exhibition. =D - What a funny feeling that was! Another man asked me whether it will be okay if this photo of me will be hang up in his office room soon. 

I guess I will visit the exhibition again, together with some of my friends or family. The photos will be shown until 14th of December 2012 in the Nadelfabrik.

Nyappy Go Around The World III - Dortmund

NYAPPY!  o(≧∀≦)o to all you lovely mauw-maws,

Kuraude and I went yesterday to the "An Cafe - Nyappy Go Around The WORLD III"-Concert in Dortmund, Germany. Gosh, it's been already 3 1/2 years ago as we went to their last concert (An Cafe - Nyappy Go Around The World II-Tour in Cologne, Germany). Time is really passing quickly! Back in 2009, we even had the chance to took part of an autographing session they gave back then - maybe I will write about this experience more detailed in a separate post. Well, back to present: This time, we both absolutely wanted to go more dressed up to the concert and this is how we looked like:



I tried to look a bit like an Oshare-Kei girl but my outfit should be also still comfortable to dance to An Cafe. 
After an almost 2 hours drive we finally arrived the concert hall in Dortmund.



My lovely boyfriend Don drove us to the concert and Mochi also accompanied us. During the concert the two went through Dortmund's shopping street. It was now getting already dark and the waiting queue was not that short. Of course, it has to start raining also and the entry take pretty long. We were really delighted as we finally could enter the concert-hall and went straightly to the stage. <3


Nyappy-Chan <3 and I
Clocklike around 7:00pm An Cafe started to rock the stage! An Cafe really made progress by comparison to their live performance 3 1/2 years ago. The concert itself was awesome, they played some older songs like "Snow Scene", "Tekesuta Kousen" and "Escapism" but also some of their newer songs like "Amazing Blue" and "Nyappy In The World 4". They are awfully good live. I tried to take photos of them but unfortunately the photos didn't turned out that good (Kuraude and I stood admist in the middle of the whole crowd XD):


Miku singing Tekesuta Kousen


Kanon


Miku and Teruki


Teruki, Miku and Yuuki


Nyappy In The World 4 - Teruki and Yuuki


Kanon, Miku, Teruki, Yuuki and Takuya
After around 1 1/2 hours the concert ended. Too bad that the time during the concert flew like nothing. We were really enthusiatic about the concert and we are looking forward to the next one. Miku promises that they will come again <3  NYAPPY ~~ o(≧∀≦)o

Usai's Hello Kitty Collection - 4th - Electronic Devices, Movies and Games

Hello my dear mauw-mauws,

time has come for the fourth part of "Usai's Hello Kitty Collection". This time I show you all Hello Kitty games, movies and electronic devices I've got and I guess it will be a quite short post. ^__^6

First up are the games:

"Hello Kitty Seasons" for Nintendo Wii


This game was a christmas gift of last year from Kuraude to me. It is a really lovely and cute game. The target audience are probably younger children but I also enjoy playing the game, because it is a nice now an then game. =)


"Happy Party with Hello Kitty & Friends" for Nintendo DS


Also a gift of Kuraude to me. The game contains several cute mini games.


Hello Kitty PC Games


A gift of Mochi. The discs contain several cute mini games, and some of them are really tricky.


Don once bought me also a Hello Kitty DVD which contains five mini movies:


The movies are pretty old but they charmy ones. Mostly, you already know in the middle of the movies how it will end but its okay for me - sometimes I just do not need very challenging movies.. I just want to relax and want to debauch in my dreams =D


Last year, as I celebrated my birthday at Japantag 2011, Don gave me this awesome Hello Kitty Styled Mobile Phone:


It is the Samsung Star Hello Kitty Edition S5230 Smartphone and I love it. I know that this Smartphone is not anymore the state-of-the-art but I don't care because I just want to write SMS and want to call my friend with it. I emphasize a pretty design .


And  now, last but not least, I want to show my cute Hello Kitty PC Mouse:


I've bought it by myself on ebay a few month ago and I really love it. The mouse works properly - I never had any troubles with it by now. ^___^
