Engagement Photo shoot: Mini horses, whiskey, manga, and games!

19 Mar

I suppose my blog has become a haven for my wedding stuff, but OH WELL! I think more people are reading it now that it’s sort of nerdy-wedding themed, haha.

For our engagement shoot, we had no idea what we wanted to do, and didn’t want to do the full cosplay option of Sailor Moon (I’m more of the cosplay fiend than my fiance), but after chatting with my resourceful friend and amazing wedding photographer Shannon Cottrell (www.libramint.com), she suggested that we feature things we like. The list I came up with was… pretty dumb, but very us: whiskey, games, manga, and tiny animals. Since we don’t currently have a pet, Shannon kindly offered up her cousin’s mini horse as a buddy to play with during the shoot! A MINI HORSE. His name was Lil Henri, but in my head, he was LIL SEBASTIAN (If you don’t watch the show Parks and Recreation, you do not understand my excitement).

Anyway, we combined all these things and had a really nice afternoon shooting these fun photos. I think they really represent us as a couple, and aren’t TOO mushy mushy haha.

See more after the jump!

Wardrobe Rabbit: From Elves to Bears!

13 Feb

Hey everyone! I’ve officially renamed my “Outfit of the Day” posts to WARDROBE RABBIT! I’ll be creating a new category for my coordinates with the same name to make it easier for people to search directly for my wardrobe posts! (Yes, I admit my blog is a sea of randomness sometime..!) These posts will also include detail shots of my hair and makeup, something I haven’t bothered to focus on until recently.

I’ve been hoarding a bunch of looks since December of last year, ranging from holiday gear, to casual jumpers. These are roughly in chronological order, so you can see how 1) my hair goes from mushy to redone again, and 2) my Photoshop skills get slightly better as time goes on… haha. Some of these have links to my LookBook profile, so feel free to click and HYPE!

“Vintage Christmas”
Worn out to a low-key comedy night in Hollywood., that was X-mas themed.

“A Formal Bear Affair”
For New Years Eve, I went to a pajama-themed house party. I decided to go with sleepwear AND be formal at the same time, so I made a monocle and top hat for my Rilakkuma onesie and called it a dapper night!

Rilakkuma onesie: San-X, Hat/monocle/chain: DIY

“Cyber Pinup”
Made a quick stop over at Britpop club Underground, then continue on for a night of industrial dancing at Das Bunker.

Dress: ASOS, Shoes: Irregular Choice, Necklace: F21, Space Bow: Chubby Bunny

“Swirly Hair Bits”
I was visiting my friends in Portland and got a little complex with my hair at some point. Just a quick hair shot, since I liked the way my gradient coloring came out!

My styling method: Pull, twist and pin! Pretty simple!

“Lumberjack Lovin'”
Went to a “lumberjack” themed birthday party at a cool woodsy bar in North Hollywood, but sad to say I own no red flannel. I opted for pigtail braids and a red shirt instead. Yeah, yeah, kinda tame..!

My little star clip is making a ton of appearances in these photos I realized! It's just a cute little thing I picked up in Korea for about $2!

“Like a Pony!”
I went out dancing with my buds at a fun mash up night called Bootie over at The Echo in Silverlake. Didn’t feel ike dressing “hipster” so went for my usual bright and colorful instead! I feel like I’ve taken a TON of shots of me in this SPANK! dress so I just did hair and makeup shots instead ❤

Dress: SPANK!, Necklace: Custom-made by Cecily Margo, Heart Ring: F21

Makeup closeup! I used a bit of scotch tape at the corner of my eye to get that sharp line! Combined it with Sugarpill's Dollypop pink, Hysteric purple, and Urban Decay's green. I used Sugarpill's Poison Plum for my eyebrows. Lips are OCC liptar.

“Rilakkuma Relax Time”
For Valentine’s Day, my boyfriend got me this super cute hoodie and sweatpants set! Can you tell I have a problem with cute bears? =D

Rilakkuma hoodie and Sweatshirt: San-X

Thanks for taking a look at Wardrobe Rabbit! I’ll try to be good and update more frequently, I promise!
