Fanplusfriend Neo-Ludwig Mitologia Egypt Series

Mitologia is just spanish for Mythology.〜( ̄▽ ̄〜)

The long awaited Bastet print from F+F is up for preorder! There are two dresses in several sizes!

First is the Ancient Egypt Goddess Bastet Dress with a Hooded Blouse. It has an open skirt front and is a sleeveless dress. However, this comes with a tulle blouse, as the model is wearing.

A view with the detachable hood of the blouse on.

There are three colors: white/gold (for daytime), green/gold (for life) and black/gold (for mystery). I really like all three of them.

The other cut is the Ancient Egypt Goddess Bastet Gauze Cape Sleeveless Dress. It includes a detachable mini capelet that buttons on the shoulders to create the little sleeves. I am a little worried about that neckline though.

I like it styled like this much, MUCH better. A blouse underneath and the bow from the other dress? I like it.

Same colors as above, except here, the dark green is paired with black, while above, it is paired with light green/gold.

I really want these dresses. ;__; I know the Lady 90 size will fit perfectly (if maybe a little big). I like the second dress in green for sure, and the first dress in black. That way, the bow from the first dress could be used with the second dress.  The black colorway makes me think of the black colorway for my LE&SE Kingdom of Faeries dress too, which is kind of a good thing.  I already have some black blouses (both long and short sleeve) that I could pair with both, and without a blouse, both of these could probably work as classy normal dresses too.

Right now they are on sale, and there is an addition 12% coupon code on top of that. With the coupon, shipping is pretty much free.

ヽ( ̄д ̄;)ノ I want them!

I also need to buy jeans and other more daily normal clothes though. I guess jeans are on sale right now too…

But I want these dresses. They have CATS on them. The GODDESS OF CATS BASTET.

ヽ( ̄д ̄;)ノ Man, why do I have to be the responsible person in my family.

Musings and such

Life is stressful now, and that doesn’t even take into account the terrible events going on in the world. (Nazis?! Really?!?!).

Had a blog post all ready for the Angelic Pretty USA debacle, but I don’t feel like publishing it after all. To be succinct, I am boycotting until the problematic staff member is fired.  This can be an opportunity to explore Japanese brands beyond AP, like Atelier Pierrot, Metamorphose, Baby and Innocent World.

Every time I look back on my instagram and see posts where I dressed up nice or ate something tasty, it makes me want to dress up nice and go eat pastries or dim sum (I did this over the weekend with my friend!) or ramen.

More Stupid Things

Originally, I wanted to dress up today. ;_; But then found out that this morning, we were supposed to have a family meeting.  I am still not quite confident enough to wear alice otona around my family (aside from my Mom), so plain jeans it was.

We were on our way there when I got a call saying it was off, and for very good reasons that I am not going to describe here. So back home we go. I figured that I would see family members later in the day, so remained in jeans to run errands.

Later, we got news that a family member would now be staying with us for an indeterminate amount of time, so I scrambled to move all of my possessions back to my own bedroom. It was nice being spread out with the attic room for storage, but it is no more. u__u

Going to go see friends tomorrow (hopefully) so probably no opportunity to dress up either. I do not feel like being brave in that aspect right now.

Stupid Things

My boss saw me last weekend when I was dressed up. So the other day, he commented that I looked extra fancy and asked if that is how I always am outside of lab.

(。ノω\。)゚ hah sure I wish.

Then today I panicked about being around other people so I came home early and tried to bake cream horns. They turned out okay, but I ran out of whip cream so I had to fill the rest with cream cheese.  I want to buy some proper cream corn molds and then I will try the other cream filling recipe I know. That one always makes a TON of filling. But this worked pretty well.

And now my family is exploding because of stupid life decisions. So once more, I am pondering moving all of my belongings into my original bedroom to make room for other people or not. ¬_¬ I really prefer to be spread out the way I am now, but the weather is starting to cool off (in August!?)(GLOBAL WARMING) so I will probably end up moving back into the other room soon anyway. Before moving the heck out.

Angelic Pretty Bonbon Bunny

It’s going to be out THIS WEEK! It will be out Friday, August 11 at Noon (Japan Time) so approximately 11/10/9/8pm US timezones (pick your time zone).

The white, pink and red prints looks great for Valentine’s Day, and the red could maybe look nice for Christmas. Pink would probably be nice year round, really. I am 100% not impressed by the black colorway.  However, because I made all these holiday associations with this dress in my head, releasing it in AUGUST feels weird.

I don’t really like the bodice of the JSK. While I like that it is simple, but I don’t like the white mock bib (I guess it would look fine on the white colorway). Every time I look at it, I think it is a skirt with suspenders.

Honestly, right now AP Japan has a Sweet Bakery Special Set and a Baked Sweets Parade Special Set for sale and I would rather buy those instead of this. This is pretty cute, but I am not excited about it. Maybe in a few months when I have money to blow (hah) and this goes on sale (The yellow Ribbon Berry Bunny JSK is STILL for sale on AP USA, this dumb print is mocking me at this point ¯\_(ツ)_/¯), I might buy it. But I am not excited the way I was for Romantic Cat.

If you miss it this week, AP USA will probably have it in 2 or 3 weeks.

Running Errands

The weather has been nice and cool all week, so I planned on wearing a very simple coord today. But it rained. I didn’t let it stop me though.

I’m wearing F+F Enchanted Forest JSK and Diamond Honey Chiffon Blouse. Just using one of my old, less poofy petticoats. Going to try and lose some weight before trying to wear the Aurora and Ariel pettis out. No extra jewelry or wristcuffs because I’m just grocery shopping, and I was worried that the wristcuffs would just get wet.

I know I have a few dresses that I still need to wear before doubling back on older dresses, but I really like F+F dresses. They always fit well and are comfy and I don’t completely panic at the though of them getting rained on or anything.


First time wearing the new pair of Sosic Shop shoes. They have an ankle strap, but I didn’t like how they felt with these socks, so I just removed it. Like the other shoes, these are super comfy and easy to drive in.

Tried wearing the Red Maria head bow, but head bows feel over the top for casual looks. Luckily, the bow slides off the headband, so I attached a hair clip and wore it that way. HAH this is pretty awesome.

I tried a new hairstyle too.  Most of my hair is back in a ponytail, but left some hair back so I could loop it back and pin it there. I got the idea from Victorian era hair styles.  I guess it isn’t very visible in this picture.

Luckily, it didn’t rain the entire time I as running errands.

Now to be at home, drink tea and be lazy.  I’m nearly to the end of the first week of dieting by counting calories and restricting what I eat/smaller portions, so I am hungry all the time. It will be worth it to fit into cute clothes.

Summer 2017 Pusheen Box

I did not mean to buy this, and I will 1000% not be getting a Fall Pusheen box because I am moving/?????/etc. But let’s get started.

LOL a sleeveless shirt. It is also HUGE. For casual clothes, I do prefer things to be a bit oversized, but this might almost be too much. Granted, I have assigned all of my Pusheen clothes as pajamas anyway, so it won’t be a big deal.

Here we have an ice pack, some silly straws, ear buds and a luggage tag. Oh man, the luggage tag would have been handy back when I traveled a lot but I do not foresee my future containing much travel.  OR I just jinxed myself.

Ice pack will be handy. I don’t particular like the soft earbuds here, but I do like the little case they are in. I will comment on the silly straws further down.

Popsicle mold! Heck yea! Unlike the ice cube tray from last year, this is a sturdy plastic and I really want to make some popsicles. These are mini sized too. I want to make tiny peach pie popsicles.

Oh look, a cute little pouch, right?

IT’S A BACKPACK! It is very thin material, so probably not good for heavy use. It’s funny though, because today I was trying to compare the cost of a fall parking pass to the price of some new walking shoes and a sturdy backpack that won’t hurt my back (in the event I forego the parking pass and just walk to lab instead). (I am just going to get the parking pass, even though I really do need new shoes, and a new daily bag).

This backpack is way too thin to use daily, however it may come in handy when travelling (hmm is that a THEME of this box? ಠ◡ಠ) and you suddenly need a backpack, and ta-da!

Pusheen Passport case! US Passport not included, but it DOES actually fit. On second though, why would they make a passport case that doesn’t fit passports?

The figurine that is included in each box. This season, it is a beachy Pusheen. Sunglasses and a palm tree. So summery.

So I tried out one of the silly straws, and it is very narrow. Maybe all silly straws are like this. The hole is narrow so you have to use more force to drink your drink. Also, I did not see any advice on how to wash them.

Overall, a good box this time. Unfortunately, I would have been able to use some of these things more if I got them last summer. HAH oh well.
