Mail goodies!!

First off, I did not go to Japan, I got into Hokkaido, but I didn’t go because of different reasons. I have mixed feelings about it, I am happy that I didn’t have to go trough all the things I needed to do for the travel and move, but on the other side I am sad that I won’t be going, even thou I know that there would be little chance of me acctually being able to get trough a year with classes only in Japanese. Now I am taking the one year course in history to get my free study points and I am trying to find a job so I can get more money for when I am done here! But other than that:

Yay! I got my first package today! I have ordered a few things when I got money again! (But since I want a Cintiq 12, I were also smart and have put a lot of money into a savings account, and I hope that I will have enough to buy one for myself for christmas and also have money to spare for the time after school is over!)

I ordered two really cheap cross stitch kits from a chinese seller on ebay, and I think I might get them next week or something. (Which means I have one week to at least finish the one I am working on now XD) I will show you pictures of them when they come=)

I also have ordered a school book, that I really need XD I et my first hand in task tomorrow XD

Other than that I have become a member of Sylvanian families fanclub in Norway, and am waiting for the member gift ^-^. (I’m a kid at heart! That is my excuse!)

But today I got my first packet! It was the Sound Horizon Marchen DVD!!! I were too late to get the limited edition, but that is ok ^-^. And since it was cheaper than buying from Outland, I also ordered the newest magazine of “ゴス・ロリ”(Gothic lolita), since I had so much fun with the Noin jacket I were making, I decided to just start collecting them. It has a lot of inspiration, and also, for that many patterns for unique clothes, under 18 dollars are really cheap.

I have made a lot of manly costumes, but I wonder if I should try and make a dress one day? The good thing with Noin is that he is quite flexible XD

The Marchen DVD comes with two disks, one with one type of sound and the other with another type of sound (I am so smart!) Most of it is written in german so I don’t know a thing of what stands there XD.

It comes with japanese subtitles, but it only appears when they speak german.

If you have downloaded the consert, you can go to the international sound horizon fan page, white crow, and you can get the subtitles in english! It was really helpful!

Other than that I am hurt again, I have walked too much in bad shoes and my foot went owie… But I am using creme on it and walk as much as I can to get to school, then it goes owie on the way back home (*Random adorable crying eyes begging for attention and love*). I might have to get to the doctor next week if it don’t get better.

I am almost done with my Noin costume, and I will make a blog post with the details of my awsome sewing work soon, and I will also make a post with what I think about the Marchen consert, and also the new things I found out thanks to it! I think I understand the deal with Elizabeth and why she had to call her brother for father.

I will come back to that soon=) I’ll just leave you with a little tease:

 

 

 

 

WIP – Noin Celestine 1

Well, I am working hard! (not true :P)

First I cut out all the parts I needed. I were so afraid that I had cut something wrong, since the fabric isn’t the same texture on each side.

(The pattern is for four different kinds, I will go with the A and B since that is the women size :P)

(Everything is cut out and ready to go!)

I cut out everything last night, and started to sew today (When it was saturday :P) and my fingers are so red and hurting! Gah I need some protection! the fabric is so hard to get the needle trough!

But I worked hard and now the form is done XD

I decided to make it look a little better than I usually do, and I have arranged the borders a little better, it don’t really look nice inside anyway, but it don’t stand out at least. And the outside looks a little better ^.^:

After that I started to sew on the front, and my fingers still hurted, so I took it slow XD, but here is the end result of the day:

(And please don’t mind the bathroom or various stuff hanging around XP)
