So excited about this post!!! My first real video to share with everyone. I’ll tell you more about Waku Waku another day. I want to cut right to the chase – the Baby, the Stars Shine Bright Fashion Show. It was simply fantastic!! See for yourself:
I have two favorites from the show – the new Halloween print of a nightmare candy factory and the new heart apron in a mix of red and white. Adorable. Plus so many ouji looks!!!!!! Must say that Milky Train is growing on me. Never really paid much attention to it, but you know, boy style. I almost melted when Yani waves Kuma Kumya chan’s hands. But what I want more than anything is the cape Yura wears in the final look. My need is strong.

My Second Christmas arrived this week!! I received my Baby, the Stars Shine Bright Happy Pack and was so freakin excited once I got a glimpse inside that I actually gave myself a monster case of the hiccups. So much pink!!!
Its scary how perfect this lucky pack is for me. I have been wanting more solid color dresses and hadn’t yet added a pink one to my wardrobe. Problem solved.
As for the cape, it is going to be hard to even take it off I love it so much. I was eying it for so long but never bought it. Problem solved.
Well and the Douce Chocolatier skirt makes me a little sentimental. I was way over my budget when the NYC Baby store opened in the summer and was drooling over the JSK with this print that day. Now having the skirt makes me feel like I was able to step back in time, just a bit, and have a memento I missed out on previously. Problem solved.

Someone mentioned on the Lolita Updates Facebook page that they were impressed how the Happy Packs were really well coordinated. I have to totally agree. These were not random selections from what I have seen but really pulled together packs.
Like so many others I got the Alice and the Pirates tartan salopette. I know most people are dumping theirs on Lace Market but I have to say it is super duper cute. Surprisingly it fits me but not in a flattering way sadly. However, it has me inspired to make something similar for this summer. I just adore the plaid print with the rickrack and lace trim – and its shorts!!
The blouse is standard issue and small so nothing surprising there. I might cut up the collar and cuffs and rework it into a cutsew blouse that fits me. Another thing I have wanted to try for sometime but haven’t had the courage. I have too many project already going for now, so this can wait a little longer.
Bottom line for this year’s fukubukuro is that I made out like a bandit!! Between this pack and the IW pack I got crowns, chocolate and tons of pink. Feeling pretty spoiled right now (｡･｀ω´･｡)
The ever lovely Grace braved a 3 hour train ride then joined me for another hour and half by car to make it down to AnimeNext on Saturday. We were determined to see the Baby the Stars Shine Bright fashion show. Well worth the journey. The show was stunning. Best of all, I love that the models are locals (mostly) from the J-Fashion scene in the Tri-State area. Real girls with a real love for lolita. That passion resonated on stage.
Somehow our loli-posse managed to score front row seats. Yay! Not so yay is the bad hair day and derp face I was making. I look like a granny in a bow （￣へ￣）
Now on to the show! The show kicked off with Alice and the Pirates and concluded with Baby. And who better to make the first grand entrance other than MC Melod¥ Doll herself!
