SunnyCon Preparations!

I’ve been buying bits and pieces for SunnyCon for a couple of weeks now, and I’ve just realised how much it’s adding up – I should definitely have started buying earlier in advance…

If any of you have ever played anything from the Dead or Alive series, then you’ll know who I’m cosplaying pretty quickly.

Kasumi from Dead or Alive has been my favourite character ever since I first played the original DOA, when I was teeny tiny.

Basically this is one of the costumes she can wear, which is available throughout most of the DOA series:

DOA 2 (the original)

DOA 3

DOA Ultimate

and DOA 4

I don’t think the outfit is available at all in DOA5 unless it’s going to be/already has been made available as DLC, but it was one of my favourites!

Her hair colour and eye shape (and face shape and body proportions) have changed so much since DOA 4 too, which is a shame really, but I’m just sentimental.

I still love the newer game – (and I can’t wait for Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge)

Anyway! Everything for the outfit is sorted, including the actual uniform/costume, a ginger wig (my hair has been many, many colours but I don’t know if I’d dye it ginger just for two days) and some dark brown circle lenses.

…I may have to trim the fringe slightly

I’ve also recently bought some beautiful Demonia Charade 23 platform heels which I’ll probably wear with the outfit too. They were only £17 with an RRP of like, £56-£70. And they’re an investment.

None of the stuff is here yet, but there will be photos within the next couple weeks…

And a video covering SunnyCon, of course. So, keep your eyes peeled!

Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Lovers Perfume collection: Can it be rivalled?

Like most girls, I’ve had countless perfumes in my time. Some have been dull, some have been terrible, and some have been so good that I’ve feverishly re-bought them time and time again.
Lil AngelGwen Stefani’s Harajuku Lovers collection, featured so many wonderful, exciting and unique fragrances.

My favourite was Lil’ Angel from her ‘Sunshine Cuties’ collection. It smelt like candy shops: with its sugar and vanilla and lemon notes. The only problem was that I was at college, and it was usually around £15.00 for a measly 10ml of the fragrance!

What’s more is the perfume is apparently no longer in production, although I’ve spied it for sale several places online, I do wonder when it will become entirely “extinct”, and what I can do to replace it.

I’d heard that Aquolina – Pink Sugar was very similar to Lil’ Angel, so I’ve ordered it today to see if it can truly step up to the mark! It’s £25 for 100ml. I can’t really complain. Unless it’s awful, in which case I will.

Anyway, I’m an avid fan of sweet/fruity/vanilla-inspired/candy/sugary smelling perfumes so, I’ll let you know what I think!
