Twinkle Carnival: It's mine!

Hello! ( ^_^)
Yesterday, my new dress arrived. I love it!!
I'm so excited I could not stop looking at it and to photograph it.
Two of my absolute favorite dresses are APs Puppet Circus and Sugary CarnivalTwinkle Carnival looks like a mixture of both. And it combines the best of this two dresses: horses and gold print. :D
 Actually, I wanted this dress in black and I will definitely buy this too.
The print is just stunningly beautiful.
Here are some pics:
(I will take pictures where I'm wearing it later. But this weekend I had no time for stuff like that.
I have some exams soon. (>o<))

Thanks for reading! (^o^)

How to curl a synthetic wig?

How to curl a synthetic wig?

This is my first tutorial and I hope everything is understandable and comprehensible. English is not my mother language and I know that I do a lot of
mistakes. I'm sorry for that.
I've tried my best. ^ - ^

I think it is easier to straighten a wig. To curl synthetic hair is much more complicated. I've tried out many things and techniques and found a few ways which work well for me.
This tutorial should also work for synthetic hair pieces or extensions. I show here, how I curled my wig from Gothic Lolita Wigs (Blended Strawberries & Cream 1G – without ponytails). These wigs can be heated up to 180 ° F/82 ° C. The method I use should also work with non heat resistant wigs.
Every time after I bought a wig, I cut and style it myself. The prestyling of GLW wigs is not bad at all, but since every face is different, it is better to adjust the wig.

Befor you start

It is not absolutely necessary, but at first I washed the wig. I then let it dry overnight. Of course it is also possible to roll the curlers in the wet hair, but I prefer to let it dry. It is also possible to straighten the wig before the beginning. Normally this works well with a hair straightener or flat iron. Straightening and washing the wig is only optional and not necessary. Definitely you should comb the hair and it should be untangled.

Materials you will need:
  1. Wig (suuure ^ - ^)
  2. Comb or wig brush
  3. Bowl or cooking pot (heat-resistant!)
  4. Hair rollers (heat-resistant!!! there are different types and also some that can melt in the heat - worst case!)
  5. Kettle (preferably with a thermometer)
  6. Towel  (to protect the work area) 
  7.  wig stand/head
And here we go!

First, you have to roll the hair on the hair rollers as tight as possible. It must be very tight. Otherwise you will have ugly buckles in your final results. Either I put the wig on a wig head or I put it on my own head to roll the curlers. Both options have pros and cons. On a wig head you have a good overview of the whole head and furthermore you can easier roll the hair on the back of the head. On your own head you can adapt the hair on your face and in my experience, in this way it is easier to roll the hair pretty tight. If everything is - as it should be - rolled, then put the wig in a pot / bowl and pour hot water over it. If only the tips are rolled, then should be only the rolled parts of the wig covered with water. How long the wig has to stay in the water depends on the synthetic fiber, the desired curls and the water temperature. My wig (in this example where I made ​​the pictures :D) was in hot water (85°C) for about 15min. To let the wig dry overnight you should put it on a wig stand. I let them dry overnight, ^-^ but those who own a hood drier can use this as well. If it is dry you are able to take out the hair rollers. It is done!
Now you can style your wig. I like to backcomb a little to make the hair fuller and to hide the hairline. 
It's purely a matter of taste.

And here are some pictures:
Previous condition...
...and after curling
It´s not styled yet. ^-^ Sorry for the low picture quality. It is a bit blurry. >//<
 And just for fun:

If there are any questions – just ask! XD
Thanks for reading!

bonus: wig worn ^-^

Edit (21.03.2012): Have a look at this tutorial by Viivi: how-to-curl-your-wig
It´s another good method. ^-^

gothiclolitawigs review & some of my accessories

Last year (XDDD) I've ordered a new wig at gothiclolitawigs
It is a model of the new Countess Collection and called Coco. ^ - ^
 The wig is really pretty and the hair feels quite realistic. I really like the puffy style, but unfortunately there are not so many curls in this wig. It´s wavy and a little bit tangled. ^ - ^ That's not bad, I will curl it myself. 

That´s not the true colour. It´s a little bit reddish in this pic because of the lamplight.
This photo shows the true color pretty well.
New chocomint accesoires. ^-^ I really love chocomint.

A small collection of my accesoires ^-^...

...bows, hair accesoires, bracelets... accesoires, some rings XD...

...bracelets and necklaces. XDDD
In this box (you see it on the picture below) I got my order from kawaii-factory. Super cute! Isn´t it? ^.^ It's been some time since I've ordered there. But I would do it again. <3

My kawaii factory stuff. Love all her jewelry with bears.

Thanks for reading!

Lolita coordinates - Best of 2011

Wishlist 2012
These are just the dresses I really would like to have. : D
There are others that I liked.
Some of these dresses I've been waiting for years. (Puppet Circus was love at first sight, but back then in 2006 I was not able to pay it) Maybe I'll get this year some more of my dream pieces.  
Right now I see in a year full of incertitude. Some things will probably change for me.
But something will definitely not change: This year I'll wear Lolita. This fashion is and will be part of my life. ^-^

Thanks for reading!
