Blog header: two weeks worth of daily shots

Another sewing wip. I have had my eye on this Alice in Wonderland fabric for a while. They sell it in 75 x 100cm pieces at Veritas, and in the end I caved and got it because I know I'll regret it if I don't and they stop selling it (which will be sooner or later). I had to put it sideways (topsy-turvy!) to get it to work, but as it's a Wonderland print, that's no big deal :).
It's a slow process to a skirt, as I only sew a little every day on breaks from editing BCM, but eventually it'll be a skirt.

Halloween is drawing nearer and nearer, so you have been warned, expect all kinds of madness over the course of the following weeks!
I found these hairclips at H&M (the kids section) last Saturday. I also have glitter bats, but they don't photograph well at all, so that's why there's just these in the picture.

I went to pick up my Halloween order at HEMA and they also had bat ligthing. Which wasn't on the website. So I picked that up too. It was the very last set of bat shaped string lights so I grabbed them whilst I could!

The other bat lights I got at HEMA on Tuesday. It's a cheap circus lamp, and you have to basically put most of it together in the cardboard frame. Which I don't mind at all because it's hella cool :).

My I Love Crafty Halloween order arrived earlier this week, so here's a picture of the adorable brooches I bought!
They got here super fast too, and there was also some Halloween confetti, a lollipop and a cute sticker inside. I love how much care is put into the packaging, it's always such a joy to receive an order from I Love Crafty!

Favourites of September

Last day of the month means favourites of the month!
Read all about them here on my blog :).

Loa takes treats very serious

Caturday!
Camera: Canon EOS 700D, 18-55mm Canon lens
Loa's Halloween t-shirt arrived in the mail, and it just doesn't fit him right :(.
Nevertheless I took a photo of him wearing it. That bitch face is legit because I wouldn't feed him more treats, he didn't much mind the top. I'll give this one to a friend who has a chihuahua and buy another top for Loa, in his actual size (SS instead of S) this time.

Just a quick doodly mixed media painting of a kitten and a pumpkin :).
Kuretake paint; Letraset pro-markers, HEMA and Steadler (fine)markers, brush pens I picked up at Sedaiko in Tokyo and some Cotman watercolours.
My scanner doesn't know what to do with most watercolour painting so I tend to take photos of it. Which does mean they count as daily photographs of course :D.

Day 7/31 days of Halloween
Originally Birdie and I were going to try our hand at kubist Jack o' Lanterns, which we had seen on instagram. But then I had the idea (under the shower, as these things go lol) to do Mondriaan Jack o' Lanterns instead, because I had never seen anyone do those and neither had Birdie. So that's what we did.
I wish my eyesight without glasses was a lot better, because my linework suffered (as usual when I can't see what I'm doing) but I still like how it came out. I wish I had all Sugarpill eyeshadows to work with though, because the M.A.C and NYX ones were a mite well, sub par (and then people say I can't be tactful).
Click here for Birdie's version.

PRODUCTS USED
- Barry M, matte lipstick in black
- BE Creative Make Up, photo perfecting primer
- Catrice, liquid eyeliner in Dating Joe Black
- M.A.C, eye shadow in Gesso
- M.A.C, Semi-Sweet eye shadow x 9 in Carbon
- M.A.C, Tropic Cool eye shadow x 9 in Bright-Sided and Lemon Rush
- M.A.C, in extreme dimension lash mascara
- NYX, ultimate shadows Brights palette in nr 5
- NYX, retractable eyeliner in black
- Yves Rocher, waterproof eyeliner in Noir
- Yves Rocher, botanical color eyeshadow in Noir ébène
- Snazaroo, Adventure palette in white and yellow
- Sugarpill, pressed eyeshadow in Love+



And definitely look at her YouTube video about the look, because it's soooooo cool!
