Quick Update

For those of you who didn't know, I was VERY sick this past week. I posted some videos on YouTube, but couldn't sit upright long enough to post a blog at my computer. As you can see, I'm feeling MUCH better now and even went to a buffet with my family for my brother's birthday this weekend. 
I was still afraid to eat any real food though. You can tell by looking at my family's plates and my own plate. 
 Afterwards, I went to the market with my mom to get a few essential items. 
 No, we didn't buy a tentacle, but I kind of wanted to. ... because... of reasons.
Later on, I went to the doctor to get a check up and was deemed "healthy". These were her instructions. Wanna know the truly crazy part? ... she never prescribed me any medication of any sort. She even told me to STOP taking Excedrin for the horrific migraines I was having. Thanks doc!
And this is me in a nutshell. I don't know how they got my height, weight or BMI or BSA. They didn't measure those when I came in. They probably just went off of my old records or something because, after a week of headaches, nausea, and diarrhea, I KNOW i was not 139lbs. 
Alas, a hospital snack was had! It was 4 o'clock which is time for tea, but I'm afraid Snapple was all I could find.
 This muffin was strangely delicious though. Like "Omg-there's-crack-in-this!!!!" delicious.
 Of course, Vladimir helped. He was hiding from the sun behind my Snapple bottle. <3!

Fixed bodice!

I have had this bodice for some time now, but there is only one problem... 
 Look at that busk!
 Most of the pins were missing, as you can see here. There was only one peg on the bottom, and even that one felt a little wobbly. I didn't know what to do with this bodice, but I liked it too much to throw it away. I decided it needed to be saved!
 I turned it inside out and looked at the busk, the part with the missing pegs.
 I located the bottom of the busk...
 And started seam ripping that sucker out.
 THIS is the busk that was supporting my bodice. It looks awful! I'm so glad I took it out.
 I located the bottom on the other side of my bodice and started seam ripping it as well.
 This side was still intact, but it was morphed from age and use. That was thrown away as well.
 I measured out the busk and bought a zipper of the same length.
 I put it in place and pinned that zipper down.
 The top DOES meet properly as you can see in this photo. I think the fabric just was out of shape because of the way it was pinned.
That was it! My bodice was saved! I'm soo glad too, I really liked this one- the pink and the black with hearts made me feel like a cupcake. All hail up-cycling Goth garments! <3!

Girls Night Out

 Girls night out! My little Goth-a-billy cupcake was driving.
 She looks so majestic in the setting sun. :3
We arrived at the Anarchy Library after some make-up application at a MAC store. You gotta love free make-up. Natalie with my little Hollie-bear making kissy faces at me.
 I always look a little boozy in photos with friends. I can never look normal or just... "smile". O.o
 Our drinks, cranberry juice FTW!
 Okay, so I ordered it because it matched my outfit. I'm kinda vain like that. 
 The restroom had fuzzy leopard print walls! I was kinda afraid to touch them though. ^^;
 And here's the group shot. We're all so different, but we're all so alike.
I went to school with these lovely ladies. We're all going our separate ways, but imma miss them. Summer is ending waaay too fast. ><! <3!

New Skirt and Sushi!

You already know what this means.
I got a new skirt in the mail today! I'm sooo happy. X3
It looks like it's make of a bunch of bandages, and it's just the right shade of red.
This is the front. Check out those curves. X[
This is the side. (Ignore my messy floor. And bed.)
And this is the back. It's a little snug, but I think I'll grow into it pretty soon.
The sooner the better, because I decided to wear it out that evening to have sushi with Chris. ^^;
My cup of green tea. It's so green, it's practically hazardous as it glows. @.@
Chris stole my camera when I wasn't looking. I think I was checking out his Dragon Roll. (Pun not intended).
Here is when I realized my soul was being captured. I tend to be camera shy.
... as I said, camera shy.
Vladimir isn't camera shy at all. He helped himself to some sushi (you can see his stack of plates amassed from his binge) and my tea too.
I realized that I was low on tea at home. Chris and I went to Target for their tea aisle. If I owned Target, tea would need its own section and NOT be sharing space with Cocoa. *leers*
And as you can see, there was NO TEA IN THE TEA AISLE. I was horrified. There was only cocoa! Cruuuel, cruel world...
 Alas, I still have enough tea left for the week. ... okay, the month. Either way, here's my outfit.
 I forgot I had these fishnet sleeves. They're great for the summer, they cover without making me overheat.
My hair was being Bellatrix Le-Strange today, so I decided to f-it-up some more for you all.
Vlad is sleepy, we're going to sleep now. Hope you enjoyed! <3!

Outfit of the day- Captain Jolie Rouge

I was reading "The Asylum For Wayward Victorian Girls" today, and I have always taken to the character Captain Jolie Rouge. 
 Chris and I were going to Huntington Beach to walk around, have dinner, and watch a movie, so I thought it fitting to dress nautically. X3
 Nothing too special, it is still entirely too hot to wear much clothes or make-up as I normally do. But I think my tri-corner hat does the trick.
 If you go quickly between these two photos, it looks like I'm rinsing out my mouth with mouthwash. ^o^!
Lots of sunscreen was donned (It was about 4pm, look at the hot mess of a sun behind me). My big black parasol was donned as well, people seem to be afraid of it for some reason. Like it is a bringer of death and doom. Wonder why... <3!
