Welcome to Moogling Kupo! [new house!]


i'm gonna buy this
heyo everyone!

i've recently bought and finally moved into my first house and i thought it would be fun to show people a bit of how it's beginning to look! 
my goals for the house is to make it a real homage to all the different but hella important aspects of my life. including my geeky pop culture love, video games, cosplay and kawaii / japanese fashion and style.
so it's a bit of an interesting mix really! 

here's how things are going so far!!

starting with my bedroom! currently in here i have all my really expensive figurines and things until i have a glass case which i want to display them in, in the future! (once i have the money to buy one!)
i'm super lucky to have a king size bed and this is the awesome doona cover my mummy bought me in congratulations for the house!
there is one that i have my eye on at the moment however which is the one below. 
i'm totally obsessed with astronomy and the galaxy and it would make me so happy to lay in this as i watch the stars outside my window.
again, it's just a matter of saving up enough money to finally get the house to how i dream it to be.
as an added bonus of course I have a cute little balcony (both the bedrooms do) and i have great views of the sunset and incoming storms which we experienced last night - was cray!

next is the living room! in here i'm hoping to have all my cool cosplay and video game things on display as well as all my consoles and eventually my figurines.
some of my favourite things that i've started with this room is the flowers that i like to have around and, of course, the beginnings of my weapons wall! (currently holding Frostmourne, Oblivion Keyblade and Squall's Gunblade. Will soon be adding my Jack Frost Staff!)

because the house is small that's pretty much everything really... 

but i do have a small kitchen and a fridge featuring ghost in the shell magnets and game of thrones magnets.
i'm sure without any doubt it will end up being covered in paraphernalia similar to the rest of the house X3 everything that is in the living room however is visible in the open kitchen / living area so the general area will have a similar feel!

excited to keep things going and growing my collection of nerdy things as well as expand my cosplay creativity in my own space!

hoping to be posting again soon so hang around.
i know i'm not hella reliable with posting here so you can also find me posting here:

2016 Cosplans & Life Plans! ◕‿‿◕

* this will be a video soon too* 

ayo there ya'll!

today i just wanted to post quickly about the [somewhat planned] happenings for the new year. not very sure how many of the things that are planned now will happen and / or stay as mentioned for the year. writing it all out here is mostly just helping me organize a little bit :P

THINGS I DO KNOW: 

friday night this week is the first Beta Bar event of the year and I will be attending as Minnie Mouse for the Disney themed drinking! 

the sunday soon following will see me in my Original Design of a Frost / Queen [thing] for the Midsummer Faerie Rade through melbourne's CBD.
you can see my video of last years costume rundown and the actual event here : www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BpPUwvb22U
i will be rocking the new crown i made following a tutorial by Glam&Gore on youtube.



also in planning currently is a photoshoot [finally] of my Umbreon Gijinka that i wore last year to Oz Comic Con and entered in my first cosplay competition!
I got a lot of cool Hall Shots from the event but I would really love to get a proper shoot with it, especially after all that hand sewing! [i wont lie i could have chosen a better pic of my face, but this one was a good pic of the costume itself!]


aside from planning photoshoots i have got a list of cosplays i would really like to make this year and the thing i find really exciting is that they're all a bit of a challenge. I have a truly terrible habit of just making things up as I go when it comes to making things but with some of the things i'd like to do this year, making it up is actually out of the question.

some things you will hopefully be seing from me this year is 

Kiki - Kiki's Delivery Service
Geisha Sub Zero - Mortal Kombat (original design)
Imperial Fire Lord Azula - Avatar the Last Airbender (inspired design i saw by someone else)
Season 3 Azula - Avatar the Last Airbender
Sailor Scout Elsa - Frozen (design by Drachea Ranmark)
Daedric Armoured Archer - Skyrim 
Yuna - Final Fantasy X
Hinata - Naruto Shippuden (dreaming of having a naruto to cosplay with too T_______________T #soalone)

throughout the year too I'm hoping to make a lot more Youtube Videos but at this stage I've no idea what to really do them on..
should i film more of the making of costumes? more conventions? behind the scenes shoots? I JUST DUNNO! IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE MORE OF PLEASE COMMENT OR SOMETHING CAUSE I HAVE NO IDEA.

until the next blog post you can keep updated with my shenanigans in these places [ all links are on the side too!]

Harajuku Fashion Walk Melbourne OOTD!

on sunday the 27th of december we took part in the second ever harajuku Fashion Walk in melbourne!
and we had a super amazing time!

it was my littler sisters' first time getting dressed up in any kind of harajuku inspired outfit and i decided to let her take the reigns mostly in terms of what kind of outfit she wanted to wear. [then i'd wear something contrasting]
after some tumblr and googling research she decided on a more decora/colourful sort of co-ord and hit up my wardrobe to find somethings she liked.
afterwards her make up and wig styling was done by me!

we opted for a black shirt under her high waisted lilac mullet skirt - both from KMART. 
Also from KMART was the pink denim jacket that she had decorated with various badges i've been collecting from conventions and so on.

The wig is a blue long wavy one i bought to use for my Charizard Cosplay - with a small amount of decora bows from asian $2 stores in greensbourough + a Moogle bow i bought at a convention.

Her Hello Kitty face mask i bougth in a packet of many at Daiso. Jewellry is all mine - collected over the years and the Gun was bought then spray painted and bejeweled by Lily for this day especially!

               



as she'd decided to go in more of the colourful spectrum i found it easier to use what was left in my cupboard for more of a pastel goth, every day wearable look, that really fit in with melbourne's black-loving aesthetic!

I wore, for the first time ever, my Anime Eyes crop from ebay (you'll find a post about it from earlier this month) I wore this because it was a pretty warm day in the city and it is fucking adorable.

The black and silver wig i'm wearing is also featured in a previous online haul post! 
ONE OF A KIND - beanie also bought from Ebay to pay a small tribute to my love G-Dragon.

Black mullet skirt from the teenage girl section in KMART. 
[if you're sharp, you'll notice that it's the exact same skirt that my sister was wearing just in a different colour]

Pink Circle Wonka sunglasses from Hello Sweetie.
For a while during the day also, i was wearing a black long cardigan a friend leant me so i didn't get my pearlescent white skin touched by the sunlight.
Eyelashes from Daiso, make up from various places.
Pink skull bracelet from Off Ya Tree.
Rings from Lovisa.







We're both wearing Matte Black fake fingernails from KMART ($4 a packet!!)

Wig, Anime Tears and Batman!

ayo all!

i've just recieved two awesome packages after i finally went back to shopping on ebay after being obsessed with aliexpress for such a long time!! and it's greaaaat! let's get straight into the new things!


first off is this amaazing wig that i bought from ebay seller hohfashion 

priced at $20.99 (including shipping) 

usually i don't buy things that have extra shipping costs but i was just so in love with this wig that i had to have it regardless!

i've honestly been wearing it since i bought it and i love how beautifully soft and high quality it is!
i will definitely be buying more wigs from this seller, especially if they're all this soft and comfortable to wear!!



secondlyyy i found another amazing seller called 365-buy-2011  
again, as you all know i don't usually buy things with shipping costs buuuuttt i'm so keen to get back into the harajuku fashion way of dressing everyday and so i took a risk for these two items - and boy it paid off!

i'm always really worried when i buy things like this online because i don't have a small chest and i'm always thinking that it wont fit over my boobs or it will look ridiculous. 
 partnered with these worries i also don't have a flat stomach ( or at least a stomach that i'm confident in showing in anyway) 
aaannndd with crops i'm so nervous that if i wear them people will judge me all the time..

however i partnered these two shirts with a high waisted skirt and looks pretty good! ( actually wearing in the wig picture above!) 




angles are everything... ahahahaha! 

i've got  few more things on the way! so keep posted for more pastel goth / harajuku style things! SO READY TO BE BACK IN THE AMAZING FASHION! 


if you're angry because i hardly type reviews at the moment then you can see where i post often on
instagram
facebook
twitter
&
youtube (strangely enough!)

eeveelution cosplay challenge!

HEYA !
EXCITED SO CAPS!

a little while ago I challenged myself to make a cosplay in a very limited amount of time. Before the Cosplay Picnic on the 18th of July I was hoping to completely design and make a cosplay from materials and things i already had around the house.

with the pokemon party at Beta Bar coming up the next week i kind of fell into the creation of an Umbreon cosplay. i've always loves Gijinka designs and thought it was about time i actually did a good one.

inspired by the designs of Kinpatsu Cosplay's Umbreon Gijinka i searched my house like crazy and found things i needed and got to work!


this cosplay marked a lot of firsts for me.
my first proper Gijinka.
my first wig styling.
my first cosplay made in less than a week! 

which is why i've challenged myself to the Eeveelutions Cosplay Challenge! [i'm not sure if it is a thing or not] 
The idea has come from the creation of this cosplay and has been inspired too by Jessica Nigri's cosplays of all the eeveelutions! 


cosplay picnic video here!


so, so far ONE EEVEELUTION DOWN!

Umbreon needs a few fix ups and things before it's photoshoot [within the next few weeks]
and then it will be worn for another shoot beside the Espeon which i'm making next! 
The plans have begun and I'm hoping to wear it to Animaga at least one day - that doesn't give me a VERY long time for crafting as I have a lot of cheerleading and {now} work during my days!

well, updates to come.

Uchiha Itachi Leggings Review! ♥‿♥

 ayo there everyone! i know i said this would be sooner but i got totally caught up in the making of my Chibi Moon punk cosplay for Oz Comic Con!
but alas, here it is. The review of my favourite item of clothing in my cupboard at the moment.
My Uchiha Itachi digital printed leggings.

I will admit that I'm a MASSIVE Itachi fangirl and if you don't believe me I baked a cake for his birthday a few days ago.

anyway! moving on!  of course i saw these leggings and i was like: holy fuck i need these in my life. so i bought them without hesitation. the size i bought is a L but they're a bit baggy around my calf and lower leg area so i definitely could have gone for a smaller size.

Regardless of this I'm super impressed with the quality of the digital printing. On some other leggings i have the pictures are fuzzy or blurry around the edges but these ones are pretty darn sharp and i'm super pumped about that! 


http://www.aliexpress.com/store/615577 this is the store that i purchased them from and i will without a doubt be buying more from then in the future! 

the price was around 11 AUD with free shipping (i never buy anything without it!) 

I'm currently considering getting a second pair of these just because I hate the idea of losing the pair i have to a horrible accident or wearing them out... 

 on a side note one of the best things i found in these is the detail, Itachi's fingernails are painted black and the main crow on the knee has a red eye (Shisui's Sharingan!) ahhhhhhh i can't stop fangirling over these and they're so soft and amazing and i need at least fifty million more pairs.

so, if you're an itachi fan i suggest you snap some of these up while you can because otherwise I will buy all of the pairs available. 




Coming up in a few weeks is Oz Comic Con and i will be making a vlog of the day as I will be celebrating my birthday there with my friends so, keep an eye out for that!

don't forget you can find me on all these sites -> all links are on the right!

until next time!

Sailor Moon, Batman & a Little Black Dress! product review! ◕‿‿◕

ayo everyone!
i was recently feeling kinda down and i decided that, of course, the best way to cheer me up was to buy things...
and i did.

As usual i headed straight to aliexpress.com as it's my favourite place to buy awesome things for even more awesome prices!

In my wish list and cart i found a whole lot of things i had saved there earlier so I thought, "hey, why not?"

and i purchased them.




batman skirt top right ! 



AND TODAY THEY ARRIVED. OH HAPPY DAYS.



firstly, here's my eternal sailor moon dress! aaaaanddddd it's so fantastic! it's super silky soft and it's a great length. the thing i was most worried about is that sometimes with digital printing on this kind of material the whites don't end up as white as they should be. I was however, pleasantly surprised as this white is as white as a sheet of paper! love it.


secondly is my favourite of the three at the moment which I'm actually wearing right now as i type the review. this batman skater skirt is fantastic. again, super soft and amaaaazzzzingglllyyy sharp digital print which is again something i didn't expect. there is a small section on the back where the patter runs out and there's a small strip of white but it doesn't bother me at all ! Love love love love it. 



       

This purchase was a little different for me as it's not something i would usually buy. I should have bought a bigger size still. but i like how this looks. it's pretty much my first dress of this design or kind soooo now i know for next time that a larger size would be better for me. in the first picture you can see that i'm wearing my bra and the straps are seen but i kinda like how it looks. 


all of these are products are from the one store :

you will note that i buy a lot of stuff from here because i've found that for their prices the products are really great. 


there will be more as i'm planning on ordering some figurines in the not too distant future!
but my next review will be about my Uchiha Itachi leggings! :3 aahhh i love love love them.

until then you can see more of my things in these places :
