Rose and I were in Seattle last weekend, and the Hotel Vintage Park kindly hosted us. It was quite possibly the best hotel experience we’ve ever had. The luxury boutique hotel is part of the Kimpton group, and perfectly located (around the corner from the Seattle Public Library, and steps from Pike Place Market). We’ll share more photos and stories on Monday!

Eye makeup: Marlliss fake eyelashes with blue gems. Line the lid and extend it up and over with black eyeliner. Blend with black sparkly eyeshadow, gifted from Sugarpill. Highlight and blend with white eyeshadow (a must-have).
Pink lip gloss: a gift from my friend Kana. It has a dominatrix Hello Kitty dangling from it.
Black felt hat with flowers: Emily Temple Cute, from Closet Child. I customized it by pinning on a fringe and adding craft store butterflies.
Halloween hair clips: Claire’s in Tokyo

Blue and black punk sweater: Listen Flavor, Harajuku shop. I had to buy it. And the matching ring, since it looks like my Scottish Fold cat. (Photos to come)
Leopard print leggings: Gift from my mom, from an Asian boutique called Truesion in Richmond (suburb of Vancouver)
Black shiny ankle boots: Alice & The Pirates, from Closet Child Harajuku. They’re currently being sold new for 17,800 yen — but I got them barely worn for 7,800! You can see a close-up in the Black Veil Brides post.
Purse: An old Hugo Boss. Decorated with my X Japan photo pass and kawaii dangles.

Rose made the hat out of a vintage pink fox. She added ears and glitter eyes. It’s possibly the cutest thing that ever died.

We took photos in the Seattle Public Library, designed by modern architect Rem Koolhaas. The fourth floor has undulating walls painted red.

I gave Rose the panda purse as a present (you may recognize it as Heart E). I added a stuffed strawberry, since her online name is Pandasnacks.

The Seattle Library is not for the acrophobic. Where are your favorite places to pose for photos? What setting or backdrop should we explore next?

    Cuteness lacarmina!

  • Wara

    cute x3

  • Anna

    That shirt is so cute. I love your hair too :]

  • The Rin 凛 Promo Video was interesting. The backgrounds had an authentic Gothic theme going on matching their costumes that was influenced by Vintage Clothing.

    The musical arrangement had definite progressive rock/metal feel (Deep Purple/Dream Theater) with some Symphonic Metal influence. The Vocals sound like straight-up J-Pop and work well with the Music defying all purist logic.

  • Demon_snails_want_brains

    What is the actual link to the sweater on the listen flavour website? I’m trying to find it but I’m lost :C

    • Unfortunately the sweater is no longer for sale, since this was from 1 year ago…
