Halloween: Shibuya109 Style

Happy Halloween!

At this time of the year it's not unusual to see spooks, ghouls and other horrifying, terrible creatures prowling the floor of Shibuya109. Well, to be honest, most of them aren't terrifying.

The brands of Shibuya109 released their 2014 Halloween collection and what better date to post it than Halloween itself?









My picks are:

⋆ Swankiss
⋆ MA*RS
⋆ one*spo
⋆ Fig & Viper
⋆ Liz Lisa
⋆ SPIGA
⋆ GARULA
⋆ tutuHA
⋆ Cocolulu
⋆ SLY

The accessories from Ruby Rose are really cute too!

My question to you girls is if you had to wear something from one of these brands, which one would it be? I think I'd have to go with MA*RS because it looks like typical MA*RS whilst also being a bunny. ♥

Stay spooky! ♥

Misc OOTDs

I'm a guilty blogger with a secret: I recently broke my iPhone by dropping it on the floor. As a result I've fallen behind which is why there was no blog post on Monday. I've had it fixed and I figured you guys might want to see some OOTD posts whilst I get back on my feet.

Things will be back to normal... soonish.

O U T F I T # 1


Top: MA*RS
Skirt: MA*RS
Tights: eBay
Shoes: New Look
Head Bow: MA*RS
Both Necklaces: MA*RS

Okay, I like MA*RS a lot. I'd been wearing a MA*RS bracelet as well during the day. Also, bare nails. I had a nasty infection due to a hangnail and couldn't do my nails as a result. It sucks.

I like MA*RS. A lot. Did I mention that already?

O U T F I T # 2


Dress: 'Liya Lisa'
Necklace: Chocomint
Shoes: Melissa

Everytime I wear himekaji I feel like some sort of Stepford Wife. I'm not feeling that style much anymore.

O U T F I T # 3


Dress: MA*RS
Headbow: MA*RS
Choker: KOKOkim
Necklace: MA*RS
Stockings: eBay
Shoes (unseen): New Look

I'm not sure; did I mention I really like MA*RS? I really loved this outfit; I felt like a princess and ever so fancy in it. I think if I could wear MA*RS forever I would be happy.

O U T F I T # 4


Dress: DreamV
Legwarmers:DreamV
Necklace: MA*RS
Choker: Vivienne Westwood

I didn't like my face so I mosaic'd it. My hair was in pigtails but it's not so obvious from the picture. I really like agejo style a lot recently.

Which is your favourite from the four looks? Let me know!

Stay sweet ♥

Gyaru iPhones : 5 Favourite Apps!

So, I'm not sure about you guys but I absolutely, 100% could not live without my apps. To be honest, I'm not sure how I functioned without them if I'm honest. As we're in an increasingly vain world it's easy to rely on apps for everything from entertainment to photography to even lifestyle.

I've listed some of my favourite apps below that I think that you guys may find useful.


Instagram

Starting off the list with an obvious choice. Instagram is a fun way to share photos and connect with people. There's so many girls on there it's great for co-ord and make-up inspiration. People on Instagram are super friendly, too. There's no excuse to not have this.


Camera 360

I swear by this app. This app is the light of my life, the apple of my eye, the chocolate sprinkles to my ice-cream... you get the hint. I've written about this app before and I swear it gets better with every new update. The filters are gorgeous, the skin effects are beautiful, and it allows some basic photoshop features. Even better is that it's all in English so there's no fiddling around trying to read Chinese.

The app is updated frequently with new features and the makers of the app have several other photography apps that may pique your interest. Definitely worth a look!


Poco

I'm not actually sure of the name of this app as it's in Chinese, but I was able to find it in the store using the term Poco. This app is one of my favourites at the moment, it's amazing! It has a liquify tool and it even allows you to apply make-up and circle lenses so it looks natural. It also has a healing tool, filters, even some purikura! It even has options to remove undereye bags naturally.

As it's in Chinese it can be difficult to work so I recommend just clicking around until you get what result you want. It's worth it.


DecoCamera

This is a really Ageha style purikura app. I've seen better purikura apps out there but this is the most 'gyaru' app I've seen and the frames are absolutely gorgeous. It's one of my favourite apps to purikura with just for how gorgeous it is, even if the styles are limited.


Girls Camera

One of my biggest issues with Purikura apps is that the stamps can be limited and can therefore get boring. It's a pain when your favourite app just gets tired and uninteresting to you. What I really like about Girls Camera is that it's a purikura app that's constantly updated. Why? It allows the users of the app to draw their own stamps and you can use the stamps other girls have shared. There's a neverending supply of new stamps that way!


What are your guys favourite apps? I love trying new ones out so anything new and interesting would be appreciated.

Stay sweet! ♥

GALOWEEN 2014


Halloween is one of the only times of year that it's acceptable to go out looking like a total weirdo. No one will bat an eyelid at you if you go out in dresses adorned in eyeballs, bats hanging from your ears or even blood cascading from your eyes. Okay, maybe that last one might get you some looks but most likely not. Either way Halloween is meant for fun and there's no better way to do that than dressing up in a creepy costume.

With the rising popularity of creepy cute on the Internet it's now easier than ever to find some perfectly ~spooky~ items for people who don't want to particularly dress up. There's also a billion costumes to do, with some gyaru stores catering to them as well as the cheap options from your local party store.

If you haven't made your mind up for what you want to dress up as for Halloween, here's some ideas!

1. Generic cat Easy peasy. A black/leopard print dress with a matching pair of kitty ears is stupidly simple to do. Teamed with some whiskers drawn on your face (and perhaps a cute little nose) there's absolutely nothing complicated about this costume at all.
2. Devil Also another generic idea. Devil horns and a black or red outfit. It's easy to find horns that are different colours so if red isn't your thing you could run with pink, blue, purple, green... the possibilities are endless.
3. Vampire Wear a perfectly suitable vampire outfit - something black perhaps. Paired with blood leaking from the corner of your lips and a pair of fangs you're a more legit vampire than Edward Cullen.
4. Ghost Dress in an all white outfit with white shoes and white skin make-up to match. With the addition of a black or white wig you're bound to look like a fashionable ghost - or spooky. Much cuter than wearing a bedsheet with eye holes cut out.
5. Doll I can't be the only one who finds wind up dolls creepy, right? With the use of make-up in the correct places it's easy to turn yourself into a puppet or a doll. Pair this with a blank scare and you're bound to scare someone - even me.
6. Zombie Use makeup to make it appear as though, well, you're dead. Bruises are super simple to make using eyeshadows and with fake blood you're bound to look like you're craving some flesh. For extra authenticity rip up your clothes. Or don't; fashionable zombies exist too!
7. Mad Scientist This one is super easy! All it takes is a lab coat - smear it with fake blood or other nasties for the best affect. Use make-up to your will and backcomb your hair until it's a crazy, untamed poof. It'll definitely make you seem crazy.
8. Werewolf You're going for the same look as the generic cat here, but with extra fur. Awooga, baby.
9. Spider Queen This is an interesting one. Wear all black and adorn the spider webs you can buy from Halloween stores on your outfit. Wear a black veil and add little spiders all over. Not recommended for those with a spider phobia.
10. Frankenstein This one is almost all exclusively make-up. Using green face paint, paint yourself green and do your make-up as usual. Add one or two stitches with either liquid eyeliner of black body paint and BAM! Done.


What're your plans for Halloween? I'm completely undecided still so I'd love to bounce some ideas off you all.

Stay sweet! ♥
