Happy New Year!

I'm bad at doing these posts on time. But better late than never!

I spent New Years at Ikkicon, and while the con itself sucked, I enjoyed my time thanks to my friends! I'll have a con report later this week!

Today I've been getting back into the swing of things at work, but all that's on my mind is finishing up my coord for the Metroplex Lolitas New Years Extravaganza. It's generally the one meet I go to every year, though I've been making it to at least a Christmas one, too. I guess if I had a goal this year it's to go to more than that, which means dedicating myself to finding more stuff to wear!

My budget's no tighter than it has been, but I think I have a slightly better eye than I used to for what to get that isn't ita. It's still frustrating looking for things that are both in my size, and don't make me instantly say "But I don't like/won't wear that".

I won this JSK on lacemarket over the holidays though, and it fits! (if only barely, thanks holiday foods...)

I went shopping with [ profile] togabitoion yesterday and found some jewelry and a purse I can use. I'll probably replace the purse but it's workable because it's a nice grey color without looking tacky. I'd like to ideally make one to match the dress itself.

Then today, with the last of my money after bills, I got these on Ebay and Etsy!

I really really hope they both make it here before the party. But if not, I'll figure something out. :/ For now it's a waiting game.

That's about all that's going on right now besides cleaning up the mess in my apartment. I started re-watching Houshin Engi/Soul Hunter last night just because I'm putting Taikoubou in one of my RPs and needed to review. I'll let it play more while I get stuff done tonight. I love that anime but the pacing suffered so badly. T_T
