Challenge of A Borrowed Item


In 1 vs 100 -entry wonderful [Kaino] gave me this task:


I immediately knew that I was going to loan the item from my little sister, because her wardrobe is one big rainbowmadness. And what is not my style? I needed something light pink. Since I was supposed to make it work in an outfit, I went for incorporating the item into gothic style.
And yes, a wig counts as a piece of clothing!






Outfit:
Jacket & Skirt - Lip Service // Pinstriped Platform Heels - Demonia // Pinstriped Mini Top Hat - Gift // Black Bag - secondhand // Wig - loaned

Sorry for the face, it's a bit off, haha! But I love that jacket (Diamond Dynasty by Lip Service, I want rest of them too!) to pieces even though I haven't used it much. As for the wig.. can I please have it to myself in some other color?! It was amazing! Thank you [Giko] for loaning the wig and taking these pics for me!

 Soldier to F6!
Orcs, orcs, more orcs!

I must be off to study now, then soon off to work.
And neither of those have threatened my sanity at all as you can see:

 Gruu~

Quality

When you buy things, sometimes, it's a good idea to pay a bit more for some quality. To make the item last. Less damage to nature. Less damage to wallet on a long run. Less disappointments. 

Here is a good example for us all.

I met shoes. I liked the style and needed some flat-sole somewhat-practical shoes. If they were able to be incorporated to different styles, even better. And I found a pair that somewhat fit the description. With lowered price, lucky me. I bought them. I wore them for two months, normal sort of usage: at work, to market etc. 
I personally think that after two months the shoes shouldn't look like this:


The fringe was the best part, I thought when I bought them. It was the one to start failing first too. This you could glue back, but then...

Wide smiles on shoes are not very nice thing.

Wide smiles on both ends, oh no.

Look at that. Look at that. In two months, I was losing the whole bottom of the shoe!

Most interesting to walk with those.

As you can see from the bottoms. I didn't use them enough for them to look as they look now.

To translate the pictures above to text: these shoes were complete waste of money. I would have been disappointed if I had paid more than 5e for shoes like that. And I did pay more, enough to be grumpy about it. And no, they weren't listed as 2nd class items.

So if you buy your items as new, buy things that can actually handle some usage. As listed above, you can save many things by doing that. Of course sometimes you don't exactly know what you are buying and this happens. Haha. They say that nowdays shoes/clothes are not made to last, but they should last at least few years instead of few months!

Bishop to A4.
The opportunity is too delicious to pass! Arwen was open to attack and Golum taggled her! What will Aragorn do now...

Yes, my humongous orc bishop did a transformation for this pic, as I made the move straight to [Giko's] own chess board.

In Skirts

I think I said that if someone doesn't buy the loli skirts I made, I'll wear them myself. 
I totally did.


Me and [Giko] went to roll around some stores, and ended up in front of a fancy house, waving a camera. Here is what it looked like:






Outfit:
Velveteen Skirt - Selfmade // Black Shirt, Velveteen Short Jacket - Secondhand // Black Hat - H&M // Blue Cross Necklace - Moi Meme Moitie // Shoes, Other Accessories - Random


Squintsquint. It was wonderfully windy day, and my eyes watered all the time, especially since I didn't wear my glasses.
(Giko asking her father to send a helicopter.)

Oh, and you haven't seen my house yet! I obviously live in here!

So am I more handsome in skirt or in pants? Haha.

~*~

Now weren't we looking all well-behaving. It's all a lie of course, the truth looked like this:





Thanks for looking, we hope you had fun too!

As for other things.
Oh my, I'm going to be late! Anyway! Going to put stuff on sale in few days, stay tuned if interested.

Now must run!
