Just some photos of my favorite girl. One of the reasons why I've been able to get back into photography is because I've been practicing a lot on/with this girl recently. I'm super thankful that there's someone who's willing to be my dress-up doll and model for me every other week, haha. (Thank you bb, I love you.) These are from a test shoot we did three months ago. Two different styles in what.. three or four hours? Makeup, styling, photography all by yours truly ♥

Mimi + Nora

December 1, 2014





















Say hi to our new little babycat!! A calico, somewhere between 1 to 2 months old. We found her walking outside the house just a little over a week ago. We named her Nora, because she's a stray cat (noraneko), haha. (I apologize for my lame naming sense. She's also named after that Nora, if you've watched Noragami!) I've always loved cats. The first time I got to experience living with a cat inside the house (my grandma owned a Siamese before, and now a Persian), I wanted one for myself. So when Aian adopted Mimi, I was so so happy. Little did I know that when you adopt a cat, you won't be able to stop at just one ;;

♫: Acid Black Cherry - Adult Black Cat

Just something I've been wanting to try for the longest time-- the lingerie-as-outerwear look. I tried it ~once~ before this, with my Cosplay Mania outfit. I was so surprised at how cute it looked that I spent hours looking at lingerie online the next day. I wonder if you're all familiar with the movie, "Shimotsuma Monogatari"? There was one scene where the main character, Momoko, described her discovery of Lolita fashion as being shot with a gun and reborn.. that's the exact, same way I felt about this new style. I can't believe I discovered the joys of wearing lingerie as outerwear only now. I mean, I've always found lingerie as extremely cute, but never thought of getting them. What was the point, if I wasn't going to show them to anyone, anyway? At last, an answer to my problems. Excuse me while I stock up on lacy underthings and fluffy panniers ♥
