Autumn Walk in Englischer Garten

Hi, my dear readers ♥

Who doesn't like autumn sunny walks through park, colourful leaves, getting dressed in all kinds of layers of knitwear and shawls which were waiting for you the whole summer ? ♪
I make sure not to miss this kind of walk every year. I always wear something nice and take a lot of photos =D

I did the same on one nice October Sunday ♥
We decided to finally explore Englisher Garten bit more and had a lunch at one of the Bavarian restaurants there. The Hirschau is right in the middle of the huge garden and it was all decorated in autumn colours *o*
After a delicious lunch we went for a walk and took some super-nice photos among the old trees there.

Of course I had to wear mori for such an occassion - I missed wearing mori-kei layers all summer !

I found this cute dress at Pick'n'Weight (again) and I think it will be great for some hama-kei outfit, but I still dodn't make any matching sea-themed accessories from shells and pebbles...so for now I wear it with classical mori-kei =)

We were lucky to catch some last rays of sunshine and took a few beautiful photos ♪
(you probably noticed that I was so happy about them, that one of them made it to new headder of this blog =D)

...and some autumn nature ♥

I already miss autumn by looking at these photos ♥
Now all leaves are gone, everything is grey and it's getting dark soon -_-
Hopefully the winter won't be long ...

Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

Stijl Markt

Hi, my dear readers ♥

At the beginning of October there was a Stijl Markt in Munich - which is a fashion market of young designers of clothing, accessories and also a few illustrators ♪

You probably noticed that I love going to these events, because there is always a lot of inspiration, ideas and - for me most importantly - motivation to not give up on what I'm trying to acomplish in my life =)

The Stijl Mark happened on the Praterinsel again - which is the same place where we were for the Stroke art fair, and I really like this place. It's nice and clean, but at the same time old and rusty...

I was expecting shops like I usually saw at the same events in Prague - handmade accessories with original design, few clothes, stuff with funny quotes printed on it, etc. ...and I was a bit dissapointed, because a lot of shops there were just selling mass produced clothing with "original" prints (which were from 30% stolen ideas from Etsy), geometric jewellery and sometimes... something cool, but EVERYTHING was super-expensive ! As a seller myself I know the price of materials and the amount of work put in the product, but these prices were just too much - not all - but some of the shops were just making money out of the word "young independent design" while their stuff wasn't even ethically made nor organic or anything which would justify the high price... the problem was that I noticed too late, that there wasn't any rule saying that products sold on this market HAS TO be handmade and ethical... like it's quite common on most fashion/design markets =/ what a shame !

Nevertheless, we enjoyed the afternoon and I managed to find some cool shops and Honza bought me a pair of beautiful earrings from a girl who was there with her ethno shop =) There's a funny story connected this shop - I was looking at all these cute things at her table and Honza was waiting with Satan behind me and suddenly the qirl came to me and whispered: "Are these two here with you?" And I said yes and she: "That's SO CUTE they look SO ALIKE ! They even have the same expression on their faces ! aww ♥ "
ha ha =D she was totally right - and not the first one who told Honza that they look same with Satan !
(I always wanted to be that dog owner who looks like their dog and in the end it's Honza... fuu -_- but for that I guess I need to get Irish Setter or Komondor...=D )

(the earrings design reminds me of Kirkwall symbol *o*...or maybe I'm just playing too much DA)

Fashion markets are not only a place full of cool stuff to buy, but also an opportunity to wear something more "fancy" than usual ♥
As a designer myself (hu he hue he...ha ha) I decided to wear my latest creation - Elastic "Hunter" Harness, together with this damn sexy pretty knitted dress I got from dear Striga :3
I think it's a perfect match !

My dream come true and after all these years I finally have my own pair of New Rock shoes T_T
I exchanged them with Striga for my knitting =D can't wait to start working on the cardigan for her ♪

Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

Spark of Rainbow

Hi, my dear readers ♥

In October I finally finished and took photos of a knitting project which was on my needles since May !
I don't know why it took me so long - not sure if the pattern was so time-consuming, or I was so lazy and instead of working on it I started and finished many side projects <_<

I remember that I started knitting it while watching Eurovision song contest, ready for annoying commercials and surprisingly there were none, so I haven't done much work that night =D

The main reason why I started something so crazy colorful, was the release of Malabrigo Anniversario - special colorway released on ...yeah, I don't know how many years...anniversary of Malabrigo company =D ha ha (I tried to search it, but I couldn't find it anywhere)
It's such an amazing combination of pink, blue, yellow, green ... EVERYTHING !
I had to buy one skein and decided to combine it with mustard yellow (Malabrigo Ochre) to create color combination which would remind me of colorful Indian saris ♥

I chose a pattern called "Spark of Grey" from amazing German designer Melanie Berg ♪
At the beginning of June (?) she had a lecture in Die Mercerie - yarn shop in Munich - and unfortunatelly I was in Prague on that weekend -_- I'm still sad that I couldn't attend, hopefully she will come back soon ! I'm a big admirer of her work - not only her designs look so perfectly original and she's releasing new ones very often, but she also gives great part of money from sold patterns to charity ♥

I planned to wear this shawl with my yellow summer dress, but I didn't think it through, because when the weather is warm enought to wear summer dress, it's definitelly too warm for a knitted shawl... and when it's finally knitwear weather - the dress is too light =D

So my plan to take photos with yellow dress was cancelled and instead I wore my favourite bell-bottoms and created autumn hippie outfit !

oh, and I made this Frida brooch a while ago from button which I bought in Prague ♪
I think it goes quite well with this shawl ♥

every stitch has different colour *o*

In the past month I managed to finish quite a lot of projects, so get ready for more knitting posts !

Also I'm so happy to see how many people around me started with knitting (mostly because of me ha ha) and how they're getting better and slowly growing yarn addiction MU HA HA =D

Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

October Lolita Visit

Hi, my dear readers ♥

I don't even know how many months passed since the last time I wear lolita ...
It's been soooo long !
And I missed it greatly, same as I miss going to meet-ups of Nürnberg comunity T_T
But in October I finally managed both !
We had a nice visit of lolitas from Nürnberg and I was so happy about our reunion that I even dressed up in SWEET LOLITA - which happens like - never =D
It was fun, because everyone was dressed in black / grey so I felt like rainbow unicorn ♪

We planned to do a little walk and take photos in Englisher Garten, but it was raining the whole day so we spent the afternoon in my favourite veggie bistro Orange Box and then moved to the cute tea house Friesische Teestube ♥

It was SO GOOD to meet with lolitas again and talk about clothes and gossips around the lolita fashion community =D
Hopefully we will meet soon again at Christmas meet-up *o*

cardigan - BTSSB
dress - Bodyline (bought "third-hand")
blouse - Metamorphose
RHS - Bodyline
pearl headband - DM
forever budget lolita

 I bought these super-cute buttons in London ♥
I chose the one with tofu, because I'm huge tofu-addict, and the one with teeth, because I had a big trouble with teeth in summer and had to spent a lot hours on dentist's chair, so...this will remind me to take proper care of my poor teeth =D

oh, and look at my bracelet !
It's Han's amazing invention - handspun art yarn made into a bracelet *o*

Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

STAR WARS Identities

Hi, my dear readers ♥

On the first October weekend we decided to finally visit STAR WARS Identities exhibition in Munich. Since Honza doesn't like SW that much, I went with girls =D

It's a traveling exhibition and in Munich it was from spring to the middle of October, or something like that. Tickets had to be purchased in advance and for exact time - which was a good idea, otherwise it would be terrible crowded.

The exhibition was unique, because at the entrance you got some kind of super-hi-tech bracelet with sensor and also an annoying headset for spoken guide, I didn't listen to it more that five minutes =D There was about 8 stations around the exhibition where you always had to first check-in with your bracelet and then on touch screen choose which atributes formes your Star Wars universe character. (I didn't know about this and I was pretty exited about it, because I LOVE creating characters and I don't have any from SW universe, yet *o*)
You could chose what race are you, what was your relationship with family, who's your mentor, who are your companions, your occupation in galaxy far away, etc. ...

At the end of exhibition you scanned the bracelet and got a full-sized projection of your character with your friends and mentor in the background and if you wrote an e-mail in the database you got it all in mail after a few seconds ♪ Pretty cool, right ? I want more !

Here's me !
(You can see jedi Mina and merchant Rommily in the background =D)

"I was raised on the forest planet Kashyyyk, where members of my community made their living in tree house real estate. On holidays my two close friends and I would traditionally celebrate on the beach with music, dancing, and bonfires.

My parents gave me independence and not much by way of support, but I suppose I did inherit my strong set of creative abilities from them. Later on I spent some time with the famous smuggler Han Solo, whose guidance left me with knowledge I still use every day in my job as a bounty hunter.

I remember this one time when I won a Podrace, and my reward was my freedom from slavery. I didn't let this affect me too much, though; instead I struck out in my X-wing to explore the edges of the universe.

People often tell me I’m a generally altruistic and accommodating person, I also tend to be relaxed and imperturbable. But the most important thing to me is stimulation: I believe that life is adventure or nothing at all.

I have pretty strong powers with the Force; I guess that's why the Emperor came looking for me. When he offered me limitless power in exchange for my allegiance, I leapt at the chance and turned eagerly to the dark side."


Appart from this cute thing there was also a lot to look at.
I was a bit dissapointed, because in comparison with WB Harry Potter studios, this place was small, crowded and really dark, so most of my photos are blurry. Also a lot of the things were just replicas of the originals used in the movies (fuuu) and even though you couldn't come close and take photos with your fav character hm =/

Anyway, here are some photos I took ♪

Yoda's early concepts are just hilarious =D 

Well, Chewbacca and Snake/Han Solo are also pretty cool =D

Of course, I had to wear something cool for the occasion !
I was thinking about some good SW-inspired outfit for the whole week, but in the end I put something together randomly on Sunday morning, because it was cold and rainy ...

shawl - "Like a little knitted notebook" knitted by me
leggins - Black Milk
shoes - New Rock

When I got home, I just had to draw my twi'lek bounty hunter, because I couldn't stand these terrible Boba Fett clothes =D
I wear better than this !

Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥
