I'm so slow with updating!

I went to Helsinki couple weeks a go to see some friends and for something else which I'll tell you later (seriously, we were told not to share anything about it but it was on the news!?)

I went to chibicon with Heidi to meet Jenni, Katja, Minja and Toni. I was hesitating to go there because for once I didn't have a selling stand there.. but I went anyway to see my friends since I was going to be in Helsinki that weekend anyway so I though why not. In the end me and Heidi stayed there for like one hour and then we couldn't take it anymore.. Don't get me wrong! I do read manga and watch anime but these conventions.. they just aren't for me!

At the evening we went to eat at Koto with Jenni, Laura, Ninni, Minja and Elina. I ordered some sushi since unfortunately the sushiplace here in Hämeenlinna aren't that good, so I don't want to miss out any opportunities to get some nice sushi! :D Most of us ordered some warm dishes and they all smelled so good.. I tasted some of them and they were really lovely, definitely have to go to eat at Koto again!

On Sunday we had a little meetup so we wen't to the center around 12 to meet the other ladies and Toni.
Unfortunately can't tell what we were doing, but here's some pics of us!

In this one we made funny faces and I wasn't sure if they're ok me sharing this, so I just used pony-censoring. :D 

And here's my outdoors outfit, it's mixture of secondhand, handmade, Cloudberry Lady and offbrand.

School stuff

Just wanted to show you what I've been working on lately.
So I'm studying fashion design and my minor is textile design, for this year I've been attending a textile course where we should design a fabric collection. Everyone else on the course are from the textile department so I'm doing the assignment in slightly different way than they are (I'm making the designs for garments, their collections are for interiors, most chose to make kitchen fabrics.)
The theme for the collection is Rinnakkain (side by side?) so I though to make lolita-collection but use mori and dolly-kei as an inspiration..

Here's couple print designs I've made so far (I draped the patterns on some lolita brands items, the clothes are not my designs!)

Sleeping beauty is the theme of my collection. Here I used Innocent World outfit to present my embroidery design on the bag.
The skirt is from Alice and the pirates, only the print is my design. :)
I already started working on the embroidery but it's really difficult one to make!

Does the dolly-kei and mori-girl inspiration come trough at all? I'm planning to make everything in two colorways, one in Mori and other in Dolly-kei, the colors you see on the skirt are from the palette I was planning for dolly-kei and brown, white and other earthy colors for mori-girls.
