Scraps: Autumn Equestrian

I just want to make one little post before my exams (so... I suppose no posts for two weeks) and it'll be pretty short. 

So basically this is just a really random post because I was drawing to avoid studying for exams. I'm no art student nor do I have an artistic hand, so this is going to look pretty horrible but I am  WAS proud of my colouring until it showed up weird when I scanned it! Also, I don't do anything fashion-related at school (I love my sciences...)

Going on a tangent, that just reminded me of the Ace Attorney games and this character called Ema Skye (in English), I think I'm more like her than any other character in terms of my interests, I mean she's so into science that she aspires to become a forensic scientist and you'll never see her out of her lab coat (personality-wise... not so much). Jeez, my geekiness kicked in.

 Actually, what I just drew looks like what she's wearing (except it isn't a uniform):
Blouse: check
Vest/Waistcoat: check
Plaid skirt: check
Science lab coat:... I would like one though

So here's my little scribble:  

I wasn't prepared with a design in my head so you could see that I changed my mind when I started scribbling on the green with red, hoping to get a nice pattern until I decided to go for plaid. Nor did I bother colouring in the wonky shoes or the blouse. 

Also, it isn't a unique design (I didn't plan to draw my own design anyway) but it gives you a picture of what I think is stylish.

Markers: Copic (Yeah... really nice markers I got from a friend because my sister wanted them but she decided not to use them. When your art skills are pretty horrible, it doesn't do justice)
Paper: From my year 7/8 art diary...

'Round the World #3: Lolita

My mid-year exams are finally over! I'm not sure what I feel about how I did but that's not what I'm here for. I originally planned to add another entry into formal dresses but that will have to wait as I'm still thinking about how I'm going to make my dress. Instead, I'll be adding another entry into alternate fashion.

Lolita has to be one of the most well-known styles. When I say "Harajuku", this style will be one of many styles that pop into people's minds. It's probably one of the older styles too as it goes back to the 70s/80s. Of course, there are many different styles of Lolita - just like how there is in Goth. 

If you are unfamiliar about Lolita, please don't relate it to the book by Vladimir Nabokov. It has nothing to do with it. Lolita fashion is about modesty (usually...) and not about dressing up like girls to attract pedophiles. Lolita fashion is based on Rococo and Victorian fashion, so it isn't really unique but you don…

Inspiration: Ruby Red and Sapphire Blue

Ruby Red (Rubinrot) and Sapphire Blue (Saphirblau) are movie adaptations to the books in the Gemstone trilogy by Kerstin Gier. The general setting of the films were gorgeous. Some of the costumes were also very beautiful. While it is not a must-see film, I thought it was pleasant enough to pass the time.

Gwendolyn Shepherd is the self-proclaimed Black Sheep of the family and comes from a lineage of time-travellers. On her 16th birthday, she discovered that she had the ability to time-travel. This had complicated matters for everyone because it was generally believed that her cousin, Charlotte, had inherited the ability and trained for many years in preparation.

Gwen has the rocker-chic edge in her wardrobe, from the choker to the jacket. She's without the studded shirts and jackets, or her plaids. Don't forget the black eyeliner. It really makes her bright blue eyes stand out.

As the "Ruby", she has a lot of reds and pinks in her wardrobe. I love that red polka dot co…

Inspiration: Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's

Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) was the movie that made Audrey Hepburn a style icon. Givenchy exclusively dressed Audrey Hepburn in this film, creating the iconic LBD (little black dress). Edith Head created the other clothes that Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly wore. Most of the clothing made for the film were quite fashion-forward for its time and nothing looks outdated, even compared to today's fashion.

While Chanel had created the LBD in the 1920s, it was not a wardrobe essential until Givenchy designed the dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in the openingof the film. It's a sleeveless sheath floor-length gown and was accessorised with strands of pearls draped around her neck, a tiara on top of her beehive hairdo and dark sunglasses with a design reminiscent of Ray Ban Wayfarers (tortoiseshell frame). Apparently, the sunglasses were Oliver Goldsmith's Manhattan. Don't forget the black opera gloves.

The most distinct part of the design was the cut-out on the back o…
