May the Fourth be with you always! ❤
When you have a boyfriend who’s a geek like you, he gives you a bby metroid to take pics of, for your anniversary. ❤ ❤ ❤
I’m pleasantly surprised at how big the metroid is. I thought it was going to be a little thing! Also, surprised by it’s texture…squishy~
The last metroid is in captivity.
Do you ever just find something in your closet that you completely forgot you owned and as soon as you touch the fabric all these memories just shwoosh right back into your life? This happened to me yesterday morning when I was contemplating what to wear to my family’s Easter get-together. Last time I wore this dress..heck, the last time I saw it with my own two eyes, was back in 2007 for Grad Nite. That’s right, 9 years ago. This means one of two things: either A. I haven’t cleaned out my closet in 9 years, which is pretty possible…OR B. there’s a black hole in there and it mysteriously burped out the dress when it heard my pleas, causing me to find it. IDK. All I know is that I was glad I found it because I had no idea what I was going to wear.
Whenever I think of Easter in terms of fashion, I think of pastel colors and flowers and pretty dresses. Since I don’t own a flowery pastel-colored pretty dress, I really wasn’t sure what I was going to wear and was ready for a “what-the-hell-am-I-gonna-wear”battle. But then that thing happened and I found this flowery dress. Now, it’s not pastel and it’s prettiness can be questionable (I mean, I think it’s pretty…but you, dear reader, might not think so… it is rather outdated..idk) but as soon as I saw it I knew it was the one. Kind of like when I was a Senior looking for the perfect outfit to wear to Grad Nite. I remember looking everywhere and nothing was convincing me..but then I saw this dress at Forever21 and just knew. Actually, I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be a dress…it might be one of those long shirts you’re supposed to wear with leggings (I remember that being in style back in ’07). But, since I’m a short one, I get to wear it as a dress. Although, if I remember correctly, I wore black tights to Grad Nite…’cos this is still a pretty short “dress”.

My boyfriend loves Mega Man. I mean he loves Mega Man. Sometimes, I think he loves Mega Man more than me. For his birthday last year I had one goal: learn how to bake a Mega Man cake. I got the brilliant idea at 2am (when all brilliant ideas hatch), three days before his birthday. The problem was I had never baked a cake in my life before. I remember the stress and the fact that I had to get it perfectly right. I’m not an artist; the most I can draw are silly little doodles. Pretty bad doodles. So, the eyes were definitely challenging. Over all, I think I did a pretty good job. I mean, it looks like Mega Man, right? The best part was that he loved it! Totally surprised him^^ *pats myself on the back*. I had so much fun baking that I want to do it again this year! Except, maybe I’ll bake a Proto Man cake instead (He’s red and my bf loves red). I had left over batter, so I made some e-tank cupcakes. They were my favorite part ^^.
Shy Guys like flowers, too.
When I was a little girl, I dreamt about wearing this dress. It belonged to my godmother and I loved seeing her wear it. She made it about 25 (or so) years ago. Yup, that’s right, she sew’d it together and voilà, made a dress. Having an aunt who makes her own clothes is pretty rad, especially when she makes clothes for you. It’s been a while since she’s sewn anything, but the clothes she’s made in the past are pretty fantastic. She’s made me flamenco dresses (I’ll have to make a post about them one day…surprisingly, they still fit! Not sure if I should feel proud about that considering I was 14 at the time), my 15’s dress (which was a gauzy purple dream), and other pieces here and there. She’s amazing. When I was a kid I wanted to learn how to sew just like her. I visualized myself wearing my own designs and never having to go back to the mall again. Heck, I still do! No, I never learnt how to sew, but never say never, amirite? It’s still something I want to learn how to do.
Anywho, back to this dress; when I turned 17 I inherited it and for years I kept it in my closet. Every single time I looked at it, it made me feel nostalgic and nice inside (is that weird?…) and I daydreamed about what things the dress had seen, and what it knew. I took it with me to Tallahassee when I lived there and even pinned it on my wall like hipsters do. It was my favorite dress. At the time I didn’t like wearing long dresses. They made me feel short (I am short!) and I guess I hadn’t come to terms with that. Which is why after 9 yrs of owning the dress, I wore it for the first time last year and it fit me perfectly. I imagined my aunt wearing it and thought “How cool is it that it fits me! This is history!”
About the Vader mask: a silly idea I had at 3am one time. “Lady Vader”. Darth Vader meets fashion. Idk…it seemed like a good idea at the time, hah.
