Black and White Crowns


The making of another crown. This is the same process I went through my white crown from earlier this month. Since I forgot to take pictures of the progress, I made sure to get some of this one. It really isn't much though. Suppose I could have at least taken a materials shot...

Sweets Bear

This was an experimental bear.

I wanted to have another go at making a sweets styled animal, like the cherry choco bunny. A bear though to spice things up and because it would take less time to make the ears. Instead of a regular colored bear with just chocolate sauce and a cherry on top, I took a different approach and had the bear coated in another flavoring.

White Queen's Crown part 1

I'm sorry that it takes so long for me to post! I wish I was more crafty, but I'm always too tired after school to do most creative things. It's hard to find motivation. And now that I finally have it, I'm starting to slowly lose it. Come sooner winter, so that I'll have more free time.

This year, the San Diego Lolita group is hosting a Halloween event called Haunted Chessboard where, of course, chess is the theme. Which is quite perfect for me really since I own an all white dress and all I need to do is accessorize it all chess-like. My boyfriend will be attending too, so we're going as a pair of opposite pieces, the White Queen and the Black King. Mostly because I don't own any full black lolita dresses/skirts/jsks, and he doesn't own much white. Since birthdays, holidays, and events cost money, I made it a personal goal to spend as little to no money at all on making the accessories and props.

As you can tell, this post is about my main accessory, the crown.
