[sticky post] Finally, some order in all the chaos, hell yes! [Apr. 13th, 2016|03:02 pm]

Because this blog used to be chaos incorporated (seriously), even with the tags, I decided to rehash the index page of my website and use that as a handy index for all the stuff I fill my days with.

Of course, it still needs some tweaking and re-designing, which will be a job for weekends, but for now, there is order in the chaos :)

Star Wars slip-ons

Because I felt like it, I modded a pair of slip ons with Darth Vader and Kylo Ren's faces :).
They handpainted on (and waterproof I add!) and for sale in my etsy shop :).
Each pair I mod is unique, so if you like them, snatch them up whilst you can!

On Monday I took two trains, first to Louvain and then to Liège to meet up with my friend Marie. She is leaving for a 6 month exchange in Japan soon, so we wanted to make sure we saw each other before she left. We had so much fun that we are definitely going to put in more of an effort to hang out in the future. And instead of seeing each other 2-3 times a year we're going to do our best to meet up in Louvain (one train ride away for both of us) once a month. I look forward to that!

Anyway, this is mostly a photo post, but Liège is a pretty city so that"s totes ok.Collapse )

Plus size vintage renaissance fair/LARP dressplus size Goth vintage vest

Today I listed some vintage pieces I got my hands on a while ago in my etsy shop :)
The first is an awesome dress that would be perfect for a fantasy event, renaissance fair, LARP or heck, even a dolly kei outfit.
The second is an amazeballs victorian style jacket that'd be brilliant for victoriana, steamgoth and gothic fashions, but also for Penny Dreadful cosplays :)
Both are plus sized and available here.
Although if you want to direct buy them from me, that's also an option, just get in touch (hilde dot heyvaert at gmail dot com).

On Sunday I took the train to Louvain to meet up with Lora because we were going to Atsusacon. Atsusacon is a bit of a favourite for us, because I like to hang out with people I don’t often see and Lora likes to participate in the workshops. So total win for the both of us.

Convention time!Collapse )

London day 3 - #travel #holiday #london #uk [Aug. 11th, 2016|02:47 pm]

British Library

For those just catching up and wanting to read it all in chronological order: here are days 1 and 2 of his trip.

Let me start this trip report of Bert and I's final day in London by debunking some of the blatant lies the media are spreading. It is NOT cheap to travel to London. Whilst it is true that you can go to London by Eurostar for as low as € 78 per adult, round trip, I wish you luck getting the tickets that amount to that price for both ways. And whilst yes, the £ has dropped after the Brexit vote, BUT London is STILL a massively expensive place to stay if you want a decent hotel, and the food is much more expensive than here. Whilst it is true that you can get some things cheaper than in Belgium, this does NOT count for the vast majority of things.
To give an example. If I buy a half a liter bottle of Spa Blauw in a local supermarket, I pay between €0,50 and €0,60. If I buy a bottle of water of the same quality in London, I pay £0,70 - £0,80, which amounts to over €1 for half a liter of plain old still water. That's a stupid example, but I'm just trying to point that 90% of all things are STILL more expensive. The £ STILL costs more than the €, so to speak, even though it has dropped. Our three day holiday in London STILL cost us € 270 base price (transport [NMBS, Eurostar, Oyster card for the tube ] + 2 nights hotel stay), and that is without calculating costs for food, drinks and museum entry tickets. Of course, once you are in London you can try to budget by taking along plenty of prepackaged food and drink, but I'm just saying that the media are really exaggerating the supposed cheapness of the UK and London in particular.
Sure, we saved some money because of the £ drop, but I don’t think we saved more than € 60 on our ENTIRE trip. And whilst yes, that is quite a bit of money, it’s not the incredible amount the media will have you believe it is. They’re making it out you’ll spend half of what you would have pre-Brexit, and that’s a blatant lie.
So if you go there, and you should if you feel like it because it's full of coolness, don't believe the media, and save up enough cash.

Anyhow, onto our final day in LondonCollapse )
