Mutant and Proud

I went to Disneyland to celebrate my friend's birthday, but that evening I was also going to the midnight screening of X-Men: Days of Future Past. All the smaller pictures were taken from my friends, and everything is also kinda out of order since I don't remember anymore haha.
You can't really tell, but my hair is in little pigtails :p
The girls together in the morning :3
My first time may also be my last..
We were lucky enough to score seats in the Lilly Belle! For those who don't know, it's a special presidential train car that was originally built for VIP guests. One of the first people to ever ride it was actually the Japanese Emperor Hirohito and his wife Empress Nagako! But the car I'm actually in is a reproduction of the original haha. But now this car is no longer open to the public, and you can only ride this train if you are a Club 33 member [from what I know]. So my friends and I had great timing, cause I think they changed the rules only a month or so after we went @__@
Us in Cars Land!
She's sucha cutie!
I'm also in the ball of bones :p If it looks familiar, it's because it's from one of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
waiting to see the Maleficent movie preview
Last picture I took before I left.

Spiderman at Disneyland

So I dressed up in all my Spidey stuff and went to Disneyland to take pictures with Thor and Captain America by myself.. umm.. yep.
Yeah, I get autographs :p
Totally unsure of his actual pose, so I did whatever haha.
The queue for Captain America. It's similar to the museum as seen in The Winter Soldier.
I feel kinda embarrassed, but at the same time I don't give a fork. Maybe a spork though.
Then at another place that wasn''t Disney, I got a tower of donuts :3

Fly in the Sky with Hello Kitty

Sanrio invited me to check out the Hello Kitty themed airplane.
Lots of decorations on the way there! I didn't share everything though cause there's so much haha. Mostly it was the hallways decorated with posters and such, but it really added to the excitement and cuteness.
The plane is here! We didn't get to fly on it, but we did get to board and explore :p If I remember correctly, it flies from LA to Taiwan to Japan. And you cannot request it.. it's basically like the lottery if you get put on it or not @__@
There were complimentary appetizers and drinks *__* All so yummy!
In the top photo, they had a dance performance that kinda reminded me of Disney shows at the park. You could take pictures with various characters too. The bottom photo is of Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel coming off from the plane.
With some friends♥
I wanted to take a photo with Yoshiki, but he was busy recording Kitty Mama as she was drawing. I didn't mind so much though, since I've already done so before in 2009 and again in 2010 hehe :p
It was finally my turn to board! All of the flight attendants looked like models *__*
airplane monster :p
They had Hello Kitty everything.. napkins, toilet paper, pamphlets.. even barf bags!
I had to sit in front class for once in my life.. even if it was only for a couple of minutes haha.
So much cute!
Even the meals were decked out in Hello Kitty's image *__*
With Melissa and Ari♥
They were doing free nail art too! Look at all of the cute options ;3; It would take forever for a full set though, so it was one nail per person [not that I'm complaining, cause dang they're cute]. There were some Sanrio artists there doing free sketches too, but I didn't have enough time to wait in that line.
What me and some of my friends got! I chose the Strawberry King :)
It was so neat being able to watch the nail artist do her thang.. so much talent! It was very inspiring too.
The top photo is the badge I got when I checked in [group two was referring to boarding times] and a cute, red bow [which I wore recently during the Mini Disneyland Lolita Day]. The bottom was swag I was lucky enough to get since it was supposed to be only for media, but they had some extra leftover yayyy: a tote, Minna no Tabo stationary set, a Dear Daniel keychain, and a model of the airplane!

It was such a fun and cute event.. Sanrio always knows how to bring it! And speaking of which, they're planning the first ever official Hello Kitty Con this October; how exciting! Are you gonna go?

Mini Update

Hello! Sorry for the lack of updates.. I just came back from a week long business trip in Vegas! I went to the Licensing Expo again with San-X :) Pictures from that to come~

I'm scheduled to work a lot too, so there is just no time for resting for me.. Sorry there aren't any pictures with this post; I'm just too tired x_x However, here is the link to my newly made Instagram account!

I finally upgraded to a smartphone, which means I can finally update the world with even more random photos x] Plus it's pretty cool cause they're actually posted right after I take them haha. I'm also addicted to The Simpsons Tapped Out game, so if you have it please add "aliendoll" to become my neighbor :p

I guess I should finally start unpacking.. feel free to tell me your Instagram account! Or anything random+new that's going on with you :p I'll try to update my blog ASAP when I get a chance!

Until next time♥

The Lost Princess

This is a photoshoot I did with Jen for one of my class assignments. I'm still very new to photography, so any constructive criticism is cool by me.

We just stopped by some places she knew of, and I snapped some shots :p I asked her to dress up with the theme of a fantasy princess in mind. Besides styling herself, she also made the dress and necklace [not just for this shoot though haha]!

I took a bunch, but I'm just sharing my favorites. Hope you enjoy!

This isn't a serious shot, but I took it as a reminder of our deathly climb.. I'm not sure if you can tell by looking at this photo, but this was actually a very steep cliff. There was no real pathway down to the beach [where the previous photos were taken], so we had to climb down @___@ I almost didn't want to go down at first because I thought I was going to fall x__x But I figured if Jen was willing to climb down the f*cking cliff in a ballgown, then why can't I? I ended up crab-walking down.. but I survived! Climbing back up was crazy.. my legs were sore for days after.

Onto the next location!

That's all for my little shoot! I was delighted to have Jen model for me again. Until next time :3

Mini Disneyland Lolita Day

Me and Kim~
Wish I double-checked my ribbon ;3;
Before we went to Disneyland though, I did a shoot with Kim!
Pictures to come :)
We were both hungry after the shoot, so we decided to check out Carthay Circle for the first time. So swanky! Here's Kim checking out the lounge menu while we're waiting to be called up to the main dining area.
They have some special teas there! We each got one, although I forgot what they're called haha. I remember liking both of them though :3
Wahh blurry! Us with a portrait of Roy and Walt. I forgot who the little girl was haha.
I think she was the voice for one of the characters..?
A wild Ari appears!
Us outside...
..us inside! We transported to Asgard x]
Some details of my outfit.. see my Voldemort keychain? :p
Besides Mini Lolita Day, it was also May 4th which is Star Wars themed because of the saying "May the Fourth Be With You" hehe. Also it happened to be Harry Potter Lite day! So yeah.. I took the fashion challenge to combine all three themes x]
Yes, I am a Hufflepuff. Look at the cute, little Ewok pin too ;3;
In case you didn't catch it in the earlier picture, I got this on my arm :p It's just a stamp though, cause I'm too indecisive to commit to anything haha.
Why are so many people gathered here? Is it a celebrity?
No; it was a cute family of ducks!
These cast members are trying to guide them to safety.
It was pretty toasty that day, so Dole whip was the perfect cure!
We missed out on pretty much all of the other gatherings for the day, but we made the last one! :)
We ate at the French Market for dinner! I got the fish of the day: red snapper :Q Quite a tasty dish that I'd totally recommend!
Please excuse my dumb expression @__@
Somehow after eating all of that food, we lugged ourselves to Winnie the Pooh. In case you're not really familiar with its location, it's in one of the corners of the park haha.
Oh my goshhh we all fawned over this Pluto coin bank. When you dropped changed into his food bowl, he'd "eat" it! We tried to look for videos online because we wanted to see what it looked like, but no dice.. we did however see a super cute one of a cat! It looks like a cardboard box, but when you put the change on top of the box and press the button, a cute cat will pop up and sneak its paw over the coin to swipe it x]
"Hail Hydra."
They had these new plushies with poor ol' Piglet sewn onto the bigger character for d-d-d-d-dear life.
Cute picture of Kim!
The only outfit snap I got from the day, which was taken by the hosts of the event.
See all of the other outfit snaps the hosts took on their Facebook page

It was a fun and cute day with my friends! I barely saw anybody really dressed up for Harry Potter though.. I was the only one I saw with any type on uniform on. Otherwise it was mainly house colors or a shirt. TONS of Star Wars shirts everywhere though! I saw one cute couple dressed as Leia and Anakin :3 And that's all for this triple theme day.. the end! :p
