BUSY BEING CREATIVE








Manga project ///
Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Cosmos arc doujinji

***made of edited and modified stock photographs, artbook pics and manga scenes by (c) Naoko Takeuchi. This is just for fun and fan purposes only! Colored cover pics hand drawn by me, otherwise stated. Japanese reading direction!******

Sorry guys, I'm not much around in the blog sphere these days as I'm busy finishing the first chapter of my fan manga. This is a dream that comes true as I always wanted to do something like this. 

I gave up because I let others belittle my hobby, but now, I'm much more confident to do what ever I want, haha ;) It is so much fun strolling trough the many pages the original manga has, searching for the right images to tell my story and editing them with Photoshop.

If you are interested in a PDF or ebook version of the first chapter (for free, of cause), please comment or email me!

LET'S SWIM TO THE MOON



New in ///
Aloha Gaia Luna bracelet
Aloha Gaia Supermoon necklace

Aren't these two pieces lovely? As I don't have the time to do a cosplay on the upcoming manga and comic fair, I decided to wear a kimono and show my love for Sailor Moon in a different way. Also, it is a great way to combine my hippie style with my love for my fave series!

Can't wait to receive them!

JAPANESE INSPIRATION: COSPLAY








Cosplay by WeissEpilog
(deviantart) ///

Just came across this cosplay of Michiru Keio / Sailor Neptune and really was amazed how well she did it. Cosplay is something I always wanted to do, but due to time lacks I won't be able to prepare a stunning one for the upcoming book fair in Leipzig. Maybe next year?

For the while, I get inspired by Naoko Takeuchi's art book pics and by WeissEpilog's cosplay of my fave Sailor Moon character.

MANGA MEETS COUTURE









Setsuna / Sailor Pluto in Chanel 1992
Hotaru / Sailor Saturn - Thierry Mugler 1992
Calaveras - Christian LaCroix 1993
Koan - Christian LaCroix 1993
Black Lady - Yves Saint Laurent 1993
Serenity - Christian Dior 1992

I love Naoko Takeuchi's art for another reason: She is a big fashion fan and obviously took loads of references for her character design of Sailor Moon! The big stunner is, that the beautiful, iconic Serenity dress is actually Christian Dior!

ONE OUTFIT, TWO HATS






Wearing
All Saints Allegro coat (2012)
Acne jumper (2014)
Mexican blouse (2014)
Rag & Bone jeans (2012)
Anthropologie boots (2013)
Topshop feather hat (2014)
Anthropologie hat with headband from Etsy (2013 an 14)
Clutch from Jaipur and bag from Porto (2014)

Isn't it amazing how outfits change a whole outfit? I love playing around with bags and hats. We all have our lazy dressing days and mine are definitely during winter times. Can't wait for spring to arrive! While this, I'm doing the accessory thing ;)
