A number of things! If you follow me on my other sites, you have kept up with just about everything but there’s still a few things I haven’t discussed yet on those sites that I want to use this blog to express instead of YouTube, Insta, Facebook, etc. As for many bloggers, I share thoughts with you all in a way that is therapeutic for me so expect some personal stuff to come out on here soon.
Right now, I’m through with all of my summer classes and am preparing for my final semester as a senior at my university. It’s going to get insanely crazy for me as I plan to do a lot with my last semester there as well as still maintain this blog and YouTube and work at my part time job. If things get too crazy, I’m going to definitely drop something.
For starters though, I’d like to share these photos of some cute stuff I got from my time at San Japan this summer! I really enjoyed my time there and while I wasn’t exactly taking pictures of everything for my blog during the con, I did take pictures of the stuff I got there. If you didn’t know yet, I was selected to be a model for their fashion show which you can watch at the end of this post!
Prior to this con, my mission at other conventions was to buy all kinds of beautiful art from the artist alleys. Eventually I figured I could use some more accessories to work with for my outfits so I went back to buying those. My friend Reggie happened to be at this convention to my surprise so I went ahead and bought some stuff from his shop and was delightfully satisfied with it!

If you’re interested in getting stuff from his store, click that link and it should take you to their website. Something notable about some of their clothing is that some of the pieces generally have a faded appearance to them. For me, I like it so long as the design itself is still captivating like what the shirt and leggings have on them. It only works in those cases but there was also an abundance of vibrantly colored clothes as well!
Shojo Monsta had a booth this year at SJ as well and I saw she had lots of these beautiful hair pieces in different sizes. I was only able to afford the smaller one, but it’s so cute and white is bound to go with lots of my outfits!

I bought a lot of things from Miss Octopie this year and I went and got myself a cute commission drawn of my outfit I wore on the Friday night I was there. She’s so talented! I love her art style to bits. I just wish I was a little more darker complected than that. Otherwise, it’s adorbs!

As I mentioned earlier, I was apart of the Shiki and Enchantilic Enchantilly fashion show which was my first anime convention fashion show I’ve ever been apart of! It was an enjoyable experience to say the least. The other models were a joy to be around despite the nervousness I initially had meeting all of them. I genuinely hope to keep in contact with a lot of them if we were to ever go to the same conventions in the future.
The designers themselves were also super sweet! Although I wore Enchantilic Enchantilly’s outfit for the show, I spoke a lot with Yuka before and after the show and Fumiko Kawamura was incredibly kind to me! I felt like she was in love with how her dress looked on me as she adorned me with her gorgeous jewelry like necklaces, rings, and so on. I wish I was rich enough to have been able to afford taking that mint colored dress home with me but I had to say no and stick with getting small things. For this trip, I took the megabus so I wasn’t able to store it away in my car or anything even if I did get it.
