Super Update!
Its been about a week now since the Rendezvous and at the end of the last entry I mentioned that there was still quite a bit I haven't gotten around to posting yet that I still wanted to.

Therefore, this entry will serve as sort of a mass update of almost everything I've been meaning to write about on here!


For only a few short days Moi-meme-Moitie had a display inside Marui Annex, the mall where Kera Shop Angel in Shinjuku is located. I took several pictures so you could get a sense of what it was like.

The display was designed to showcase the various lolita brands inside Marui Annex, so each brand created a small set up in a public showcase area. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect at first, but it was smaller than I had imagined. Furthermore it seemed to be mixed in with so many pastel colors!

Theres only so much I can say about this, but on a positive note it was nice to see the Alchemy print backdrop. The dress is a remake/update of the old Gothic Arch print that sold out years ago, and thats about all I have to say about that.(≧∇≦)

I wasn’t really dressed for the occasion nor was I originally intending on taking a picture at the display but the friend I was with insisted, so now we have Slayer Sarah completely mismatched with an elegant Moitie display!! Ah well... (´~`ヾ)

MAY 16

This day marks the beginning of a new lolita magazine called "Le Panier". After receiving my copy of vol. 1 I noticed the magazine seems like a more refined and updated version of the Gothic & Lolita Bible. It includes one image of a Moi-meme-Moitie coordinate.

I recommend buying this magazine to anyone who would like to see lolita make a come back in a printed format like this. Its understandably difficult for magazines to succeed in the long term (dare I say even in the short term) nowadays, so similar to this magazine's predecessors, I wonder if it will be short lived. Surely its something to be treasured for those who loved the Gothic & Lolita Bible in the past though.

MAY 19

Saturday marked 4 years since K's passing. It has become customary now to have a hamburger and coke in memory of him since its something he really loved.

I had plans to go to a studio with a friend that day for a collaborative project we're working on, but at the last minute I suggested we stop at K's favorite hamburger restaurant for lunch!

Every year I do this I always feel slightly guilty for not liking beef. However, I try to make up for it by ordering a chicken burger instead. Thats ok, right?? Please forgive me K, its the best I can do! m(_ _)m

......I really miss K.


Also on the 19th, as mentioned above, a friend of mine and I have been working on a collaborative project together!! Heres a sneak peak of something we did for it!

This is connected to the Croix project I announced some months ago, but actually with this collaboration its becoming something bigger! I can't begin to express how happy and excited that makes me because it feels like the vision I had set out for this is becoming a reality!
Sometimes I worry about the pace the project is taking for it's full development, but then again Rome wasn't built in a day either...

Anyway, what exactly is the current collaborative project and what happened at the studio? What does the picture mean?
Its something that will be revealed more in time...hopefully very soon.
But I just couldn't end this entry without saying something about it!!

For anybody who supports and decides to follow this project, from the bottom of my heart, thank you sooo much. It means the world to me.

One last remark!!
In the past couple of weeks I received emails and letters from readers here!!
I wanted to let you know I saw them and was so happy to read them! I've been a little slow at updating things lately, which is why I ended up with this massive entry today. I promise I'm going to respond to everyone soon! Its the next thing on my to-do list after this entry!!
Also, I'm going to try to work on and finish up Rock and Read translations as well, but that will be coinciding with the work I need to do for the collaboration project I'm working on. It's all going to get done as long as I keep pacing myself as I'm trying to do now!
Please look forward to everything!!
