So, how much is Cats Tea Party actually worth?

Kawaii Data no Monogatari

How much is Cats Tea Party worth? Why is it so expensive? This question has plagued people in kawaii fashion circles for many years. By which I mean, since approximately 2014. So three years.

It’s bothered me for a while too, so I decided to finally, definitively find out using the only tools I had available to me; crowdsourced data, some spreadsheets and a recently acquired knack for data visualisation.

The result is this.

J-Fashion at DokiDoki in Manchester

A couple of weeks ago myself and a couple of the girls from my J-fashion community represented J-fashion at DokiDoki festival in Manchester. We were really keen to get involved with the fashion side of the convention, especially since it’s in the local area.

Our table at DokiDoki

It was actually my first time properly being behind a stand at a convention and I really enjoyed it! I drew a lot of pictures, had really nice conversations and raised a good bit of money for charity.

Our table was absolutely piled up with wigs, accessories, hairpieces, necklaces and clip on things by the tonne in lots of different styles because we wanted to give people lots of different styles to try.

I also brought a couple of my GLB magazines with me, including the one that has my photographs inside! I still get to be proud of that, you know?

Outfit Post: An Ode to Teenage Me

There is something very aggressively teenage about provocative slogan t-shirts. Examples of why I’ll never be taken seriously as an adult from my own collection include;

  • A tight, black t-shirt which states “PARENTAL GUIDANCE. EXPLICIT CONTENT”
  • A jumper with “BITCH 01” emblazoned across the front
  • Another jumper which I cover up when there’s children around that just says “SUCK A FUCK” outright.

I can’t explain what compels me to purchase such things, but I’ve gone and done it again.

Gluten Free Food in Liverpool: American Pizza Slice

I’ve mentioned more than once on this blog (I think) that I’m gluten intolerant. I’ve wanted to share all my favourite places to eat and what I make of new GF offerings for a while, but never actually sat down and done it…until today! I’ve also wanted to write down a comparison of all the store bought gluten free breads I’ve ever had but it doesn’t really fit the glamourous fashion thing I’m trying to do here, but I will do it eventually though because you need to know how I feel about bread! For my birthday (July 3rd so talk about late-blogging) I decided to get dressed up and hit the town – but every good party girl needs to eat and American Pizza Slice just released a new gluten free pizza so I thought I’d try it out. Here’s how I overdressed for pizza:

30s Evening Wear at The Lady Lever Gallery

Seeing dresses on mannequins in a gallery always gives me a strange feeling. We see dresses on mannequins all the time around us in shop windows and yet put them in a gallery and we feel the need to pay close attention to them and take close up shots of them. Would I take close ups of mannequins in Toshop? Probably not, but then the lighting isn’t half as good. It’s all context I suppose.
