Little white dress


What could be more charming than a little white dress? Personally I find black and white too stark a combination for casual wear, but I absolutely love a white dress with browns and creams, or even bold yellow or green. Above I've collected up my favourite looks based on white dresses, ranging from romantic to laid-back styles. I'm not in the habit of wearing white because it gets dirty easily, but because white is quite literally a blank canvas when it comes to styling, it's an immensely versatile colour.

Tooth Fairy 2

on deviantART
I think this is my favourite fanart I've done, ever. It's certainly the neatest. After my last one I tried out a totally different style, one that I think looks better given the limitations of my drawing skills. The neck area was looking bare so I added a necklace like one I saw in Tooth's earlier concept art. It's a shame that in the final design they left out much of the more Asian elements (though in my fanarts I've made her skin dark), and of course, her swords. In an unused storyboard she's quite different to the Tooth that made it into the film. I love her line "before we kill him..."

"It takes the truth to fool me"



Leather jacket: River Island, Asos
Gengar necklace: Pokemon
Jumper: New Look
Skirt: Debenhams
Petticoat: Matalan
Legwarmers: China
Boots: Clarks



Today I caught an episode of the Pokemon anime on CITV. Every time I catch it, I watch it, and facepalm at how awful it is and what a crap trainer Ash is and how annoying all their voices are. Plus, I didn't recognise any of the Pokemon (except Pikachu, obviously) because it was an X/Y episode. But at least the intro song was familiar.

I played Sims 3 at my sister's house for so long yesterday I gave myself a headache. But Sims is the perfect AU to make all my favourite ships come true. So what if Elsa and Jack Frost are from different films? In Sims they can lie in the snow and watch the stars together while my inner fangirl goes into meltdown. Though I have to give Rainbow Snowcone a chance too, even if it means a little two-timing from Jack... *giggle*

Errr, anyway, Happy Easter! Here is a picture of Bunnymund to mark this momentous occasion!

from Theiapolis
I did pretty much nothing today except finish off more Tooth Fairy fanart (it's my pride and joy) and customise a Tumblr layout (with lots of help from tumblrgenerator.com) and do a few maths questions and try to start memorising essay plans for my impending English exams. I really hate revising for English.

My new Tumblr layout, complete with working search bar, fixed sidebar and page navigation buttons big enough to click!
Now I'm going to waste the rest of my evening elsewhere on the internet. Have a nice Monday off tomorrow!

Tooth Fairy 1

on deviantART
These past few weeks and days I have been trying very, very hard to draw something nice of Rise of the Guardians' Tooth Fairy. My first attempts were sketchy hope I'm getting progressively better? I'm working on another one which is in a different style and it looks really promising.

The biggest problem I have with digital art is that I am utterly incapable of drawing smooth lines. (I mean, check out that wonky sword.) In the next one I've used a curve tool, but it's limiting. And the problem with Tooth herself is that she's so feathery and I have no idea how to convey that texture... or any texture, that is.

How's your Easter going? I've been revising, slowly, without any sense of urgency because I don't know why. Judging from what I'm scoring in past papers, if I sat my exams right now I could probably scrape an A in most of them, but this assumption is really doing nothing for my motivation to work.

Earthy

|| Nancy Z. || Anna S. || Evan L. ||

The days are getting longer, the sun is getting stronger, and it actually feels like spring. I always think that long, loose layers in earthy colours are both stylish and comfortable for spring weather. I wish I had the wardrobe to try out the mori girl look - all those layers and draping fabrics look so romantic, don't you think?

Elsa


I really love the clothes in Frozen: you can tell so much thought went into each garment's colour, material and design. Elsa's outfits are hard to make casual, but the distinctive colour pallette of her coronation ensemble was something I could work with. If Elsa lived in this world I think her style would be simple but classy, with some subtle touches of glitter here and there.

Skull

Skull: from A, A, C and L
Jewellery stand: Dunelm Mill, from B
Evenstar necklace: from O
Watch: Rotary, Argos, from parents

Finally, a photo of some of the thingies I got for my birthday last month. Excuse all of the bling - I had already loaded up the stand with my swag and couldn't be bothered to take off the stuff that isn't new for the photo.

So what shall I call my skull? I'm working on the assumption that it's a lady skull, and European, by looking up indicators online. She's life-sized, made of resin, has a moving jaw, and she's very happy perched on top of the bookcase with the rest of my treasured collection of extremely awesome but otherwise quite useless objects.

"You look like bad news"

Qipao: Dorothy Perkins, PDSA
Shorts: DIY
Heels: Clarks

I am telling you, when it comes to short dresses and skirts, lace-trimmed cycling shorts are your friend. I picked up this qipao in a charity shop because of its simplicity, though I love the embroidered flowers and the combination of glossy black edged with dark red.

Somehow I got offers from three dental schools and I've been agonising between two of them for a week or two now. I'm planning to make the final decision on Monday, so I can get on with immunisation paperwork and accomodation and stuff. So far I've changed my mind every single day so I hope I'll settle on one university really soon!

Tulle skirt

There is a certain unexplainable novelty attached to wearing a skirt that's so big, you can hardly fit through the door. Maybe it's because when you look down, all you can see is pale and fluffy tulle, as if you're nestled in a cloud.

|| Diya L. || Shiny S. || Oana S. ||

Tulle is the very fine-hole, lightweight stuff that's often used for wedding veils and ballet tutus. I especially love the dreamy, floaty element it brings to any ensemble, whether combined with polka-dots, fur, denim, or even more lace.
