When september came (and work started again) I was kind of in a good, energetic mode. And I also aqcuired a new iPad to draw on (the new one with the Apple pencil has pressure sensitivity so it's almost like drawing on a normal drawing tablet). I wanted to seriously give it a swing, so I thought, why not pick out and old fabric print design I thought of and create that with it. I had this sketch still lying around from a while ago and it was the perfect time to start it with the autumn coming. So this is what it became. you can see the details of the print on my portfolio website: www.pet-pet.nl. My original idea had dark red en green colors, but I think that wouldn't really suit my style so I changed it to some golden autumn colors.
A week before that we had a Halloween meet with our countries lolita community. It was a high tea at Hotel New York in Rotterdam. This is actually an old building, because it was the former headquarters of the Holland-America Lijn. Yes, that is where the huge ships would start their big journey to the other side of the ocean..how cool! The interior was also designed following that theme.
Before we had the high tea, we went to take some photos at the museum-park. For a long time I didn't know what to wear for this halloween meet, but I had one outfit that was an instant fit: Welcome to the Sweets Hexenhaus (you know, with the witch in that house). For that I crafted a witch hat myself, I was kinda happy with it, wearing it felt pretty nice too. People should wear these kinds of hats more often ;) !
Yesterday, I wanted to wear some of the other to-do-coords but discovered I didn't have any matching socks (can you believe that with all the otks I already own ^^; ). So I hope I can buy some soon. There are already some other new items on their way too, I treated myself a bit for my birthday...I'm excited and hope the mailman rings our bell soon!
How is your autumn coming along? This october I carved a pumpkin for the first time, haha!
Do you like to wear coords according to seasons or don't you care about that at all? Let me know!
