Mockingjay

Hello, my dear readers ♥

I think I don´t have to tell you anymore how much and why I like The Hunger Games books and movies =D So let´s get straight to the point


... normal people are probably looking and Gale, but knitters have their eyes on THAT COWL !

It´s just great...weird, postapocalyptic, probably useless piece of knit, but I fell in love with it right at the cinema (and for the other knits in Catching Fire as well, but there are not patterns for them T_T) ♥

Right after the movie was out last year, patterns started to appear on Etsy like crazy... then Lionsgate found out and banned most of them because of the word "Katniss" or "Hunger Games" ....and sooo the pattern makers changed names and they are all back =D
But I´m really not the "online-patterns-buying person" so I always put it in favourites, but never really bough a one...
...and then...the new movie was getting closer and closer and I still didn´t have anything...and just as I was thinking about finally buying one I went to look at magazines in Kaufland (!) and found one crochet and one knitting magazine WITH THE PATTERN o___o
In the crochet magazine it was shamelessly called "Fashion from Panem" but in the knitting magazine it was just "bolero with turtleneck" and they made it in absolutely ugly green colour =D (they probably knew about the Lionsgate incident on Etsy ...)

And then it was quick...I already knew which yarn I will use, I bought needles and knitted day after day so I could make it for the premiere *__*

I was so fast, that it was finished almost month earlier =D And I´m absolutely satisfied with the result ! Not only it looks really good over a bikers jacket, but it´s also unexpectedly warm and cozy =3 Perfect for dog walks ♥

I used rounded knitting needles 80cm n.7 and 40cm n.6,5 and 4 skeins of Ökowolle from Wolle Roedel


...and these are my favourite pants at the moment - I wear them all the time and feel like Lara Croft =D




Speaking of dog walks ...this was the first time outside for our dear Satan =)


The fierce dog of Panem revolution !


I saw the new movie right on Friday and we were lucky that it was with original sound and not in 3D like everything in our local cinema =D whaaa and it was great ! There were some things I didn´t like...for example that not THAT much actually happened and now everything will be in the second part? It´s going to have 4 hours or what ? =D But still, IT WAS GREAT ! A lot of action, nice costumes, good actors and the song - THE SONG !
(I really wanted to put it at the end of the post, but German GEMA says no...)

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Wear a necklace of hope,
Side by Side with me.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Inktober & Drawlloween 2014

Hello, my dear readers ♥

Today I have an "art" heavy post for you ! The complete collection of my Inktober & Drawlloween pictures *_*

Inktober is a drawing challenge in which everyone can participate during the whole October. All you need is paper, ink and some pens. Then just draw something with these medium every day/every other day/every week and post it somewhere with the hashtag #inktober
...but there´s one more think you need - ideas ! And that was the main reason why I didn´t plan to do this challenge at first, because I tend to get lazy and then stop after a few days if I have to choose topics myself <_<
BUT then I found another "matching" challenge - Drawlloween ! Which is a set of 31 things you have to draw, each every day, all Halloween-themed ♥
So as soon as I found this source of ideas, I put the old ink bottle out my table, took the tiniest brush I found and tried my very first ink drawing ever. Then I took photo, posted it on Instagram and...OMG now it has 100 likes ?!! (I usually get like 20 =D) Not only this, but also the new technique both inspired me to continue, try various styles and I even bought a drawing pen after a few days =D ! ha ha

Sometimes I was really tired, but I managed to push myself and draw the picture. I even had to take everything with me in Prague and in between family visits I did a quick pictures at my mum´s place =D. Two days I had to draw in advance or the day after (lolita meet-ups), but all the others were drawn at the exact day as the challenge says *__*

I highly recommend this to everyone who likes drawing, because I learnt SO MUCH thanks to this !
Sometimes it´s really good to have some strict drawing schedule =)

October Weekend in Prague

Hello, my dear readers ♥

At the beginning of October we went to Prague for a bit longer than usual - there was a national holiday on Friday in Germany, so we could go one day earlier. Which means a working day in Prague...which means - doctor visits and shopping of materials all over Prague >_< a lot of travelling and empty wallet at the end of the day... -_-
But we also celebrated birthday of my bf´s father, my own birthday (again =D), went to tunnel opening (yes, you read it right - we´re that crazy that instead of going to ZOO we took a walk in brand new tunnel...) and on Sunday we met with our friends on the best Japan-related event in Prague - Aki Matsuri !

What I want to show you are two outfits I wore. The first one is from busy Friday and the second one is my full-mori mode for Aki matsuri =)
We were lucky that the weather was really nice and I could take photos at our great balcony ♥ I like taking photos there, it´s so light and the background is full of old things, dirty corners, red rooftops and blooming flowers...and sometimes even a cat poop <_< but I tried to avoid this "decoration" on my photos =D

Friday outfit isn´t in any specific style...I just wanted to wear my favourite things ♪




cardigan - DIY
necklace - Regalrose
tights - Lindex
shoes - h&m

While we were in the town we have to stop at our two favourite places - Country Life a vegetarian restaurant and SanuBabu, ethno shop with home decorations, burning incenses and fair-trade clothing from India and Tibet. I always have to buy there at least a pack of incense sticks and this time I found really cute little bags with hindu Gods *__* I wanted to buy all of them, but in the end I chose lord Shiva ♥



SATURDAY TUNNEL OPENING !


ha ha =D
Exciting, isn´t it ?

As I said before on Sunday we went to Aki Matsuri - Japanese autumn celebration. We always meet there with a lot of friends, stuff ourselves with delicious food and chat a lot. The weather was good and and the best thing was GYOZA *o* I love it ! nom nom nom


fooood =D


I wore classical mori outfit on that day, because it was perfect weather for layering and what´s better to wear for autumn celebration than mori-kei ?




beanie, brooch, necklace - DIY
sweater - C&A
skirt - Gudrun Sjõdén
tote bag - gift from Maxé =)


After we ate everything which could be eaten we wanted to have a tea in the newly opened cat café........but apparently everyone had the same idea and it was completely full -_-
In the end we found a really cute bakery and spent there the rest of afternoon ♪

waah I wish every visit of Prague was so great like this one ! And what I wish for even more is place for photos like my mum´s balcony T__T these photos are so nice and light ! huu I want to live in higher floor !

...aaand at the end I have to tell you that everything went fine last weekend and we have the cutest chihuahua puppy ever ♥ His name is Satan and I will make a post about him soon =D ha ha


Have a beautiful day, everyone !
