Oh Forever21 . . .

My brother sent me a $25 electronic gift card for Forever21 and as they had a huge sale at that time I rushed to find everything I wanted within a reasonable price range and ordered. The site was being kind of weird the whole time, but I didn't think much of it and left the next morning to go to my grandparent's house [this was on Christmas]. I came home and checked my email mainly to empty out all the random crap that gets piled up, when I noticed something. I DIDN'T GET THE ONLINE RECEIPT. I then went on to my banking account to see if any money had been taken out, which it hadn't.

The order didn't process. Then, looking on Forever21, ALL THE THINGS THAT I HAD IN MY CART WERE GONE. I was sosososososo excited that I had found really cute stuff for a really cheap price, and I had had a really bad day anyways, that I broke down crying in front of my computer x-x''' Mega upset seriously.

Eventually I pulled myself together and went through all of F21's stuff again, finding things I liked and then ordered them. I FOUND JEANS FOR $10! TEN FREAKING DOLLARS MAN. But of course, something has to go wrong. I ordered them immediately after putting everything in my cart [it was the last thing added too]. Being paranoid after the last indecent, I went into my email to check for the receipt. It was there thankfully, but I got another email from F21 with just super fantastic news. They apparently ran out stock on the skinny jeans I had ordered within the minute that it took me to fill out the shipping info. So yeah, I was needless to say not a happy camper ha. Thankfully everything fits and looks cute and blah blah blah though ^-^

A supersuper adorable house-locket-thingy :D Magnetically closes
A slightly over-sized cardigan. I really liked it when I saw it on the website, and then when I actually got it I was a little skeptical. When I wore it to school I got a lot of compliments though ^o^
 These overalls are soooooo cute . . . Although, they're a wee bit too short for my taste ^-^'''

I CUT MY HAIR?! WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT?! Huhuhu. Yupp. And then the day after Nora decided to be a little copy-catter ♥ [I think her's looks better though wtf TT~TT]
Plus my face in this picture . . .

A close-up of the hat

Nora and me [yes we are shoe-shopping. deal o_e]~a shot of the overalls and the hat . . . and a double chin. HOT.
A different shot with a Nik

By the way those two shots were from when I went to Northtown mall with Nora, Nik, and Nik's friend Brody which was superdooper fun even though I had to help Brody put his earrings in. Then after Brody left, Nora, Nik, and I decided to go out to eat and then go to Walmart. At 9 pm-11 pm. My friend's are dorks. ♥

New Cosplay

I got myself a costume for Anime Detour this year :D I'll be going as Nagisa as I did last year, but I wanted to have another costume, and eventually decided to buy a K-On! uniform, such as this~
This particular one is from CosplayFu, which is where I got my Nagisa costume from. Not that I'm advertising for them, but it's a really nice site-free custom sizing, free shipping [though you have to wait about a month], and you can specify details that you want on the costume~plus they're really well made :O Okay yeah sorry haha.

I picked K-On! mainly because it's such a versatile costume as there are so many characters to be, meaning that you can have pretty much any colour/style of hair and eye colour and still be fit as one of the characters. However, I'm choosing Yui as she's my favourite and I think I'll be able to pull her off easiest.

Anyways, as much as I love this website and this design, this costume is $71.94 [used to be $133.22 holy @#%&*^$], which isn't bad for a cosplaying costume, but when you think about the fact that it's only a skirt, a shirt, a ribbon, and a blazer, that's sorta ridiculous.

So I went onto an actual school uniform site, Cookie's, and got a grey skirt, a dark blue blazer, and a white long sleeve oxford shirt. For $20 less. And then I got a spool of blue ribbon at Walmart for $1.97. Hells yeah.
Blazer~$29.99 [it's really comfy and great quality too]
Shirt~$12.99 [I wouldn't have gotten this online but this put me at free shipping {shipping without the shirt was nearly the same total price}]
Skirt~$8.99 [it has shorts too O:]
 A little pink bow on the tag :D
The buttons even have nice detail O:
Unfortunately the shirt size that I ordered was a bit too big so I'm exchanging it for their small~this is the website's picture
The skirt's a bit darker than I wanted but it still looks great and goes well with the rest of the outfit

I'll post cosplaying pictures sometime after I get my haircut [I'm getting it cut short and it'll be easier to cosplay as Yui with it]

Sonja's Farewell

I've been supersuper lucky this year to be able to befriend most of the foreign exchange students at our school :D There are 2 German guys [Mo/Moe and Max], 1 German girl [Sonja], 1 Norwegian girl [Maja], 1 Chinese girl [Scully {spell?}], and 1 Japanese girl [Mayu]. Everyone of them is staying the full year except for Sonja who only stayed for her school's length of a semester [longer than ours]. Btw Maja and Mayu were also at this partay.

As she's leaving this Friday to fly back to Hamburg, she had a farewell party where we drove 45 minutes to go tubing at Trollhaugen, ate delicious food in Wisconsin, ripped pants, talked about ripping pants, played chubby bunnies [the foreigners had never played :P], played truth of dare, at tons of candy and cookie dough, sort of wrestled, watched Burlesque, went to sleep at around 2 am, Skyped with Sonja's parents, ate breakfast, forced Mayu to write our names in Japanese, and finally had to say goodbye :(

I'll likely never see Maja of Mayu outside of the internet once they leave, but I might be able to visit Sonja as I'm possibly hopefully going to Switzerland for a month this summer to visit my aunt :D

I didn't get many pictures as I didn't want to lose my camera tubing D: I'll probably make a post in the future if I can get the pictures that her host parents took sent to me so ya

The candy
 Sonja and Jade
 Mayu. She's the cutest thing ever not even fair.

I brought Kohaku with me [me stuffed dog], and Mayu proceeded to steal it and snuggle with it the whole night =u=
 Maja in her footy pajamas eating marshmallows
 Sonja trying her first Charleston Chew along with many other candies
Okay so I look horrible in this picture~I had super dark circles from staying up, no makeup whatsoever, messed up hair from tubing the day before, and I had just woke up. Deal.
