Babymetal!

So in July I went to see the band Babymetal for the first time... if you don't know them here's a little video of one of my fave songs 'Onedari Daisakusen'


The Japanese metal vocal and dance group combine sweet girly singing and speaking with heavy metal ~ something that shouldn't work but really does!
The three teenage girls Suzuka Nakamotoas "Su-metal", Yui Mizuno as "Yuimetal", and Moa Kikuchi as "Moametal" have a unique fusion of sounds creating a new genre called "kawaii metal"


So when I heard the band were coming to the UK I made sure I was going! This band is especially good live (always a plus in my book) with high energy, dance routines and an amazing backing metal band who did some solo tunes as well.

I was surprised by the mixture of people who attended the gig ~ from younger J-Fashion girls such as myself to hardcore metal male fans! It was really amazing to see such a mix of people and I have never seen such a long queue for a gig in my life!


So before the gig I arranged a small meet for some of the J-Fashion community in Camden (close to where the gig took place) We went for sushi, chin chin labs (ice cream) and then a couple of sneaky cocktails before the gig.

This is my hair and make up for the day:


Eyeshadows ~ Paperdoll and Birthday Girl by Sugarpill
Lipstick ~ Pink Planet by LimeCrime
Jewellery and Bodycon Dress ~ Roxie Sweetheart
Shoes ~ T.U.K


I still love Camden though it seems to be changing everyday becoming more commercial. I don't see the punks and alternative people there so much now which is very sad.

A pic of me and the girls~


Babymetal are playing again in November at the O2 Academy Brixton - I can't wait :D

100 Colours ~ Dove

Last year I was approached on the streets of Shoreditch, London by a lady running across the road waving ~ turns out it was the Creative Director of Dove :)

She asked me to audition for a part in a new campaign they were doing ~ 
A year later ~ this happened....


The product is Dove's Invisible Dry Range and the concept of the new campaign is 'Tested on 100 Colours' with the idea of the deodorant leaving no marks showing on any colour clothing (not just black)

I represented the colour Bubblegum Pink (what else?!)

 ~ A year before this came out it was a whirlwind experience with the most amazing photoshoot taken by Rankin 
I was pampered like a princess, had my hair and make up done professionally, it was one of the best moments of my life <3

Also, I'm wearing the Roxie Sweetheart Kiss Me Lips and Birdie Rings <3

So, what are you waiting for? Go buy some Dove! 
My favourite of their products is the Dove Invisible Dry Deodorant Stick - its like a cream which moisturizes you and lasts easily all day

*:・゚✧Enchanted (Part 1) *:・゚✧


We were absolutely thrilled to be part of the first 'Enchanted' Lolita Convention- hosted by The Tea Party Club (Frock On) and the Street Fashion Europe Team (events from all over Europe)


The event took place at the beautiful Gibson Hall, Bank, London - a very elegant venue in the heart of London with traditional and stylish interiors


 


The first day was the main event - including a mixture of different sellers, a fashion show, make up tutorials, the raffle and a lovely cake buffet

Special guests at the event were very exciting!
Minori, Hitomi (Grimoire) and the brand Atelier Pierrot

I was particularly excited to meet Minori after seeing her for the first time back in July at Japan Expo, Paris.
I have been a big fan of her style for a while now and I wanted to welcome her to the UK with a special gift! I made her a custom fascinator decorated with roses, glitter, birds, keys and much more.      




A video from Minori about the event and the special gifts she received:
See 1.35 where she mentions the gift from Roxie Sweetheart :D
