I was feeling a little down the other day so I decided to look back on what i’ve made this year. I realized I had ten “original” projects so I decided to put them into a photoset!
I’m proud of what i’ve made so far but I haven’t accomplished nearly as much as I had hoped!
Luckily I have three months left, hopefully I can get a satisfactory amount of stuff done in that time period. I think I have at least twelve projects I would like to finish up before this year ends, which is kind of crazy.
Most of these were made between April-August, and this isn’t including Elsa, stays, chemises, headpieces, or incomplete projects. Everything was drafted and sewn by me, and most of them are original designs!

Close your eyes
Come into my world
DMMD routes, in their essence:
Noiz’s Route: free yourself; you are your own cage
Koujaku’s Route: forgive yourself; you are your own monster
Mink’s Route: be strong for yourself; endure before all things
Clear’s Route: choose for yourself, or others will choose for you
Ren’s Route: love yourself; accept the parts you fear
Mizuki’s Route: fix yourself; no one can do it for you
Virus’ and Trip’s Route: don’t fuck up or someone will put a snake in your butt

THE BEGINNINGS OF KAWAII
No, no, you have no idea. It actually IS the beginning of the whole so-called “kawaii culture”. And it started because girls started using mechanical pencils, which provided fine handwriting. After being banished (more precisely, during the 80s), this kind of writing started being used in products like magazines and make-up. And, during this time, icons we usually associate with the whole kawaii industry (like the characters from Sanrio) came to life too.
And what many people don’t realize is that this subculture was born as a way for young girls to express themselves in their own way. And it was also used as something against the adult life and the traditional culture, often seen as dull and boring and oppressive. By embracing cuteness, these young girls (and adult women, after a while) were showing non-conformation with the current standards.
So yep. Kawaii is important, and it all started with cute, simple handwritting a few hearts and cat faces in some girls’ school notebooks <3
NO OK THIS IS SO IMPORTANT!
This is also how the kawaii fashions started! Girls began dressing in cute and off beat styles for themsleves, they were criticized by adult figures telling them “you’ll never find a husband if you dress that way!” to which they began to reply “Good!”
All the japanese subcultures and fashions that evolved out of this became a rebellion to tradition and the starch gender roles and expectations the adults were forcing on the younger generations. As early as the 70s and still to this day you’ll see an emphasis on child-like fashion and themes in more kawaii styles and the dismissal of the male gaze with styles like lolita (a lot of western people assume lolita is somehow sexual due to the name of the fashion, but ask any japanese lolita and they will tell you that men hate the style and find it unattractive which is sometimes a large reason they gravitate towards the style - they can express their femininity and individuality while remaining independent and without the pressure to appeal to men)
Its so so so important to understand the hyper cute and ‘odd’ fashions of Japanese girls carry such a huge message of feminism and reclaiming of their own lives.
so are you telling me that Japan’s punk phase was really the kawaii phase

Makoto stopped Haru before he got the chance to jump into the pool amazing
Try removing your english patch (if you are using one).
mhm. I tried doing that, also quitting the quest and staring over….same thing…
I’m getting stuck in my Piercers 2nd specialization on china server. The 2nd part where you talk to Terrance/Teram in the Ancient Archive leaves off the end of a dialogue, but my quest helper is still telling me I need to finish talking with him (even tho it wont let me) So I have no idea what I need to do to finish the quest =A=; Any help would be lovely ??
M: "I've decided, I'm going to a college in Tokyo."
H: "Do whatever you want!"
The truth is, you want to find a dream too! You should find that
dream, and go flying into the outside world to follow it! Haru, you have the ability to do that!
