Dear blog,
Sorry for the lack of updates ~ I was really busy this month and especially this week ! My schedule was pack !!!! o(>_<)o 
This month i joined a play, my sister is the director of this play for the moon cake festival they're going to held it in my secondary school. She needs more actors/actresses so i volunteered to help her.
Besides just being an actress, i am also the make up artist and the one who teach them how to act. Sadly, none of them are daring enough to act naturally, so i have to tell them step by step on how to act. (=_=)
After the sound recording i need to dance Oppa gangnam style's chorus (solo) in the middle of the play. (~>_>)~
Back to the whole busy schedule thing.
Monday I have 6 hours of class and i went to practicing the play right after my classes. It's the first practice and the last. There's rehearsal in Wednesday.
During Tuesday, i have to finish the pile of homework i left undone since last week (cause last week i was busy too). Also, i have to revise Business Mathematic for the test next day.
Wednesday morning [today] i had the test, it goes well. After the test i rush back to my school right after lunch for the rehearsal. I waited for 2 hours for other performances to rehears .... AT LAST, it's our play's turn. Since we didnt bring the props and costumes, the play looked very very weird. The Domo doesn't bring her costume so she is standing on the stage as a girl in uniform ... so no one really knows why she is standing on the stage .... -sigh-
and i have no idea why i panicked on the stage and danced the wrong steps .... OMG .... I feel so embarrassed..... (>///<) Oh ! and I've brought new make up today when i was waiting for my mum in the mall. It's Meiko's cream concealer. I've seen tons of cosplayers using them so i am willing to try it until i see it lying around in the shop and i grabbed it !!!
Okay so now, move on to Thursday and Friday.
Thursday I have a replacement class for Organisational Behavior and i'll be staying in college for the whole day because it's an evening class and i still dont know how to drive well .... =(
Friday is the moon cake festival thing. So i have to prepare for the since morning cause .... I still haven't finish  making my costume (=w=). I know i am a last minute person, but being a bunny-guy-thing dont really need a complicated costume.
oh ! and i designed the character myself =) My character is a real big twist compared to the original legend story. I am suppose to be bunny, but it's boring for bunnies to have a cute and adorable image all the time so i transformed the bunny into a real funny character. It's a male bunny with ultra squeaky voice and LOVE to dance. He have a mustache and a pair of sunglasses. 8D
Cute huh ? My sister was like: "Sometimes, i wonder what is your brain made of...."
Why my sister said that ? Well, it's simply because she is a very serious person. =P
So my schedule ... Weekends.
Saturday i have work and i NEED to attend my family's reunion because it's the moon cake festival and at the same time i NEED to attend my best friend's housing warming party. I am still thinking how should i split myself into two .... =_="
Sunday ~ This is going to be interesting. I am going to have my very first cosplay photoshoot !!!! EKKK !!! So excited !!!!! <3 -will update you later with this-
This is what i've brought this month. My hauls =D
I've brought new false lashes <3 and i've felt in love with non-wavy and thick false lashes. They really are suitable for my type of eye. If i wear wavy ones, i will look evil ... =P
OMG ! i've always dreamt of owning dolly wink products and since i am a budget buyer, i dont really get a chance of winning my heart-and-brain's debates so most of the time, my brain wins and i didnt buy anything =P
BUUUUT this time~ it's different. I really want to own something that is dolly wink related. I could run to Daiso and buy a Rm5 lash case but ... i seriously dont know what have gotten into me ... I've brought this lash case in Sasa and it cost ... -gulps- RM22+ ..... I know, scary ....
Pore Putty's BB cream, i've been finding a BB cream that suits me cause Maybelline's 8-in-one BB cream doesn't really cover well from my point of view. So i try this because it's on promotion in Sasa when i was buying the lash case. Also, the promoter was very nice, she try really hard to communicate with me since i am not fluent in Malay and explain to me what that product is for and what that product is for even though there's 88% of chances i am not buying. =P So i brought both back home. =w=
Next, Meiko's concealer. Like i said, i've seen tons of cosplayers say it's a very good concealer so i brought it. It's quite cheap too. Will write a review when i have the time xD

Will update meh blog more often ~(=w=~)
Ciao !

Magazine and lens (゜o゜)

-Sigh- I know the opening of this post isn't good but the ending is good (=w=)
First i wanna complaint about this contact lens that i brought online <(`^´)>
SOrry that i didnt have a good picture of this =) my dad took the camera away =P So this is a pink lens. and apparently, after i put it into my eye it is sooooooooo UNcomfortable !!! I remember it's name, Kira Kira pink , 16.0mm ! It hurts my eye T^T but only one lens hurt my eye, the other one is perfectly fine ... Argh ! too bad i couldnt ask for a refund ... =( -sigh-
The good news is i brought a magazine with Doraemon on the cover (^。^) 
This issue is about 100 Doraemons in Hong Kong, there're also pictures of coplayers cosplaying characters in Doraemon in this mag. Their hair is made out of plastic cause normal wigs can't really look 100% like the character's hair ~ So all of them looked weird =_="
There's also a doraemon concept restaurant opened there !!! =D Oh, how i wish i could be there =w=
HYOUKA !!! This issue they give out free Hyouka postcard !!! <3 OMG !!!!
Peacing out ;)

False Lash Review (for cosplay)

I've just notice I tried on a lot of different lashes and since internet reviews helped me a lot, i think i will try making one. =)
––––•(-•( Lolita Lash )•-)•––––
It's love at first sight ! This lash is a mix of black and brown. Perfect for brown hair lolita! ●ω● There's also little jewel on the lash ~ It really does enhance your eyes a whole lot more !! Here is a close up of my eyes during the event. 
You could see there's sparkles on your eyes (literally). It really does caught a lot of attention and it's also suitable for elegant/ royal-like/ luxury lolitas.

––––•(-•( Upper Falsie )•-)•––––
This lash is the most common among all cosplayers. I've seen tons of other cosplayers recommending this type of lashes. Guess what? it is good ! I used this during Animangaki as Megurine Luka. The material is light  compared to other synthetic falsie i've used. Maybe it's because there's gaps between the thick lashes so it's more lighter than other synthetic lashes. I dont know how my friend brought it, she gave me a pair because she knows i cosplay and she dont like dramatic lashes. =P 

I was thinking about using this pair of lashes for Luka because it's makes your eyes look so beautiful, but maybe because it's too thick so my eyelid feel very heavy.... It easily tired my eyes so i put it aside now. I dont usually wear lashes, so i feel uncomfortable wearing any lashes ! But this pair is very heavy m(>< )m
Wavy lashes is perfect for parties or cosplayers with small eyes but dont buy too cheap ones, if not they will be heavy.

I used this pair during my Miku cosplay. I personally love these design lashes cause they really suit my puffy eyes (=w=) ~ It's thick , but not heavy ~ But of course, these synthetic lashes aren't recommended to wear for too long. 

I used this during practices. This one is really a headache. It's too short for cosplay and too dramatic for daily use .... so ... not recommended ~ ب_ب

This one is lighter, like i said, lashes with gaps are lighter than thick ones. This one is also not recommended. It make your lashes look like there's spider legs sticking out ¯(°_o)/¯ Okay... that is just my opinion, because i like lashes with gaps, but the longer ones is not thick enough, so it may look weird when you use it....

This one is nice for maybe, school girl cosplays cause it's casual enough. =) If you use cosmetic daily, you can also use this daily. =) 

Note: Thick lashes is recommended for people with small eyes (but be careful, they might be heavy because they're cheap ones); Lashes with gaps is perfect for people with normal eyes size or large eye size (it's not as heavy as thick ones). 

––––•(-•( Lower lash )•-)•––––
I dont know much about lower lashes, this is the first pair of lower lash i've tried. There's also a reference picture of me wearing it on top of this post.
This type is pretty dollish. It make my eyes looks bigger. But it scare a lot of people since not much people can accept these dramatic lower lashes. Better stick with natural lower lash even if you're using them on cosplays. ◕ ‿ ◕

(except lower lash) All the lashes i brought is cheap ones and they're made in china cause i can't afford expensive lashes...... (~=3=)~ I am a budget buyer ●▽● 

Hope my reviews help ! (and sorry i didnt take close ups of me wearing them, cause i dont know i am making a review of this)

Taylor's Asaban 2012

SOOOO ..... Recently i went to Taylor University's Asaban (✿◠‿◠)
 This is a picture of their ticket and booklet ~ Rm10 per day. I only went one day ~ I didnt cosplay this time. I just went there in my lolita wig (●*∩_∩*●) it's brown color ~
 I kinda look something like this
It's the first time i try on lower lashes ~ they're really really hard to adjust (✖╭╮✖) Cause i dont really like cosmetics (not a big fan of having to put stuff on my face) ~ But i still do it (O_o) ....yea.... I like to abuse myself sometimes xD HAHAHHA ! I feel so bad of not having a lolita dress, but i spend too much on other costumes .... so i dont wanna waste money on lolitas (=w=) I was thinking about putting on my pink lens instead of my blue one, but the pink one is USELESS(◣_◢) It hurts so bad when i put them on !!! So i used this pair instead ..... This is my first pair of color lens btw =) Yeah... i should stop babbling now xD Will post more stuff ~
