(Note: This is a long and pic heavy blog because it is going to cover 3 days of the con so feel free to read this whole thing if your bored or skip through the good stuff towards the end LOLS.)
Hi everyone! So at the beginning of this month I went to AUSA and I was also a Maid for their Maid Cafe there this year. It was tons of fun because this was my first year going to AUSA and also being a maid for the Maid Cafe inside the con. The con alone was not that great because I hated the structure of the new hotel. It was so spaced out that you couldn’t even get to see everyone’s cosplay. Also, most of the time people were just spaced out everywhere in the hallways, top floor, bottom floor, etc. didn’t like it at all. Hopefully next year they choose a different hotel because this one was terrible. The only one thing I can say that was good about the new hotel is that there was a lot of nice scenery so if you were to have a photo shoot for your cosplay then it would have been perfect. (Pic credits to Bounme) ;)
Day 1 (Friday)
I know most people pack before the big day but I waited until Friday to pack everything because I knew I was going to be unsure about everything; like wth am I suppose to wear since I’m not going to be cosplaying. Oh yeah speaking of that issue, the reason why I couldn’t cosplay as Kagome………. was because the eBay seller I bought from didn’t ship out my package on time and it took forever. I didn’t receive my package until 2 weeks after AUSA and I ordered this about more than a month ago. The thing that got to me was that this eBay seller was a 99.9% positive feedback person, I guess I was that unlucky .1 that didn’t get their package on time.
We finally arrived to the hotel and it was for the most part very confusing. We needed to go pick up our badges but we didn’t have a clue where the staff hotel was located at. The problem about this hotel is that there was way too many wings that led off to different locations and rooms. For anime conventions I prefer a location that is big but very wide spaced, that way you can see all of the cosplays and still be able to move around. After finding the place to pick up our badges we headed out to the Maid Cafe.
Trying to look for the place. (Btw the 2 bows were made my a friend you probably know her Shane. ;) I didn’t have that much time to make the dress cute since it barely just came in on time.
First I had to go find Bebe since we were suppose to meet up before the Maid Cafe.
I found her in the bathroom changing to her Maid outfit and of course afterwards we camhoed.
Alright after camhoing we went to the Maid Cafe, which was just starting to open.
Pictures of the Maids ;)
This one only has some of the Maids, this was before opening the Cafe.
Even in this picture not all the Maids were present. Well for the most part these are the lovely Maids from My Cup of Tea.
Friday was the best day/night for me because Bebe and I got awesome Masters (customers). The best customers we got were these 2 guys, otaku guys LOLS but then again wth isn’t an Otaku when they attend anime conventions. Otaku guys are meant for Maid Cafe’s because the atmosphere is just better, there’s more laughter, lots of moe moe, and we get to be an Otaku ourself which is fun and I like it. So, this one guy just so happened to be dressed up as Kohta Hirano from High School of the Dead, which if you guys don’t know is one of my favorite Anime/manga series. It was really cool to see a cosplay from that series, better yet that cosplayer even had the hand gun that Kohta invented in the anime. It was really creative and looked so legit. I’m glad they were our first customers because they were the ones I remember the most working at MCOT Maid Cafe.
Since Friday was more of a slow/casual day I was able to just get the feel of Maid Cafe and overall its nice, you get to meet a lot of girls who are around your age since everyone has to be 18+ to be a Maid. The girls there mostly have the same interests like you which is great if you are lacking people who like the same things like you too. I’m really happy to have met these girls because a lot of them are very caring and friendly, heck now I’ve even become close friends with some of the girls when we just barely met at the Maid Cafe.
After the Maid cafe was done on Friday we went back to the Hotel because we wanted to change out of our Maid outfits since we were getting itchy from the petticoat underneath our maid dress.
So glad the Maid Cafe was over by now because my feet were starting to hurt since I wore heels for 5 hours. We finally changed and was heading out to McDonalds since we were frekin hungry. Most of us basically only eat at 12pm and then worked for 5 hours straight. Afterwards we had to go back to the hotel to unpack and get dressed. Since McDonalds was the closest and fastest food around the Con we decided to head out to go get some burgers. On Friday night I just hung out with friends and we all went to the Host Club. For those of you who don’t know what a Host Club is it is a club that features handsome young men that you get to pick and sit down with to drink wine or alcohol. In the real world, meaning Japan you would have to pay for everything, yes this includes the Host’s drinks and your drinks. Bottom line you go inside to a fancy Host Club and get to site down with a very HOT guy and you pay for everything. I know a lot of you are thinking like wtf, but that is how it works in Japan, (Real Host Clubs) whereas the Host Club here at AUSA is only for fun but is like a somewhat replica of a real Host Club. For me I like to think that there are two types of Host Clubs. One version is like the real one’s in Japan, where the guys are very alluring, like to drink alcohol with you and chit-chat. Then, there’s another one I like to think of like Oran High School Host Club where the Host Club should have this nice atmosphere and is a place where the Host’s job is to make the girls happy and fantasize in excitement over their Host. Either one is fine but if I were to pick one of course it would be the second one because it would make more sense to go there, I mean come on who wouldn’t like to sip tea and talk to very good looking Hosts.
Check out the Club Ikemen Paradise Host Club FB FanPage ^^ (Too bad they don’t update often)
I was so busy with Maid Cafe that I didn’t even get to take any pictures of some Cosplays. The only picture I got was with Inuyasha because remember how I told you guys that I was going to cosplay as Kagome, well that didn’t go well but I was able to meet this awesome cosplayer. We are actually going to do a meet up at Katsucon because she is going to cosplay as Inuyasha and I’m finally going to be able to cosplay as Kagome.
Day 2 Saturday
Most of us didn’t go to sleep until 3am so when we woke up a lot of us were still trying to get some shut eye. I didn’t even want to budge but I knew that I had to wake up because on Saturday the Maid Cafe was going to open earlier and I needed to use the bathroom to wash up and put on makeup before everyone started occupying it. I really wanted to curl my hair since on Friday I had it straight already but there was no that much time left so the fastest way was to straighten my hair.
We headed out to the Maid Cafe and started work with lots of Moe Moe Power!!!
Oh and of course before the Maid Cafe was going to open I had to camho and take lots of pictures before everyone started getting busy.
Here’s Tida and I, dosen’t she look so cute and different with long hair.
With Ying, or Maid Milk. (I love her crazyness!)
Too bad I didn’t get to take pictures with all of the Maids. I did however took pictures of them individual or in groups so if you guys would like to see more pictures of the Maids from MCOT Maid Cafe then please like our FB Fanpage and also check out/follow our Tumblr Blog.

This was my first year as a Maid so for the most part it was challenging but very fun at the same time. I met a lot of new friends and girls there. An Anime Con Maid Cafe is totally different from a Real Life Maid Cafe in Japan, the ones here are more carefree because its not a real paying job whereas the ones in japan are real paying jobs. The girls in Japan take it very seriously because that is their job so they have to be on top of their game everyday. Here at Anime Conventions it’s more of a volunteer in my opinion because the money we make goes to charity. I wish I was rich enough to start my own Maid Cafe in America, that would be awesome, but sadly I doubt it would happen. For those of you girls who wants to be a Maid for an Anime Con somewhere you guys should apply for it, only if you guys are wiling to act Moe in front of people without feeling embarrassed. Just go contact whoever is in charge and apply for it. There may be regulations or rules for applying but that’s how most applications are like. In conclusion, Maid Cafe was a great experience because I got to meet a lot of new people and I finally got the chance to waiter. If I’m free next year I’ll probably apply again at AUSA.
So Maid Cafe was over around 5pm and we went back to our hotel to change. The one thing I was really looking forward to was Mix Speaker’s Concert which was around 10pm. I never heard any of their songs but I do remember hearing about them. I’m happy that AUSA got at least one JRock band to come this year, although I wish there could have been two. The night went by pretty fast and next thing you know it, it was already time for the concert to begin. I went with Ryan and Bebe, we were a little late to the concert but we were still able to see the whole show so that’s okay.
Here is a picture of Mix Speaker’s so you guys know how they look like. I really like their MV’s because they always dress up so every MV is different and unique. They like to have roles and dress up like them. For example the one that they had at the Con was a Pirate Theme. I’ve got a really cool story because I actually got to talk to the two main Vocalist which are the two on the bottom in white and black, their names are Yuki and Miki. The other members names (In order from the left to right): Keiji (Guitar), Seek (Bass), Aya (Guitar), and S (Drums).
Actually before I get into the story of how I bumped into them let me first tell you about the concert. The concert was so fun! Their music is a mixture of ParaPara fun energetic JRock/Visual-K, haha don’t know any other better explanation then that. The reason why the concert was fun and not boring was because they had Para Para in their songs so a lot of the time the fans, Ryan, Bebe and I were trying to follow along and dance with them. There were about 2 songs that sounded a bit sad but those were the two songs that I actually really liked because sad Visual-K/Jrock music always sounds good to me. At the end when the concert was over they had an encore so they played another one of their song and towards the end Yuki threw one of their Mix Speaker’s glow stick heart, which Ryan fought for to get. LOLS
The glow stick that Ryan fought for and got his hand stepped on by crazy fans.
After the concert ended Ryan had to go back to Host Club because he was only free for the concert since he wanted to go. I met up with one of my friend Kitty, who is also a Maid. An hour after the concert we went back to my room because we needed to get something and WTF on the way there we ran into the two vocalist Yuki and Miki who were walking in the hallway leading to the hotel rooms. At first I didn’t really recognized them because they were dressed up in regular clothes and they didn’t have any of their makeup on, but I quickly knew that it was them because I mean who else at an Anime Convention would dress up like this. They were wearing stylish cardigans that overlapped and boots, not to mention Miki was wearing a face mask to cover himself up (like how most Jrockers wear). Once our eyes met we, meaning Kitty and I both waved and said hi to both of them, they remembering Kitty waved back to us and said hi back. Oh yeah let me tell you about that, so Kitty won a chance to go meet Mix Speaker’s because she bought their merchandise from the Dealer’s room and got chosen from the raffle ticket for a free meet and greet with them, there she got to take pictures with them and got their autographs. Well back to the story, so when they waved back to us they asked us where we were headed to and we told them that we were going to the Rave Party and then they asked us where it was at and we just told them it was upstairs. I was so nervous I didn’t even know what to say to them, after that we said bye and went up to our hotel room. Oh boy! I really thought that was going to be the end of us bumping into each other but………….. Sunday morning would prove me wrong.
Day 3 - Sunday Morning
I needed to wake up early that morning because I still didn’t pack all my stuff yet and we were scheduled to check out around 11am or around that time. Since we (some of the Maid’s and Host’s in the hotel room) were working there at AUSA as a Maid or a Host we were able to have staff breakfast. Some of us then went to the staff room to go get breakfast and on our frekin way there we saw the same two main singers of Mix Speaker’s Yuki and Miki. I gasped and told Bebe, Monica and Aaron that they were buying food at the cafe. I wanted to go say hi and take a picture with them since I lost my chance yesterday but sadly I was not wearing my full face LOL, or my makeup. Well I did have on my BB Cream and had my eyebrows drawn but other then that I didn’t have any other makeup on. So me being the hungry coward I was didn’t approach them at the cafe and we went on our way to go get some breakfast. After we were done grabbing some of the breakfast they had we headed back to our hotel room. Let me tell you, it was crazy trying to get an elevator because there was so many people trying to check out in the morning. I think we waited for about 6 minutes for an elevator and when we couldn’t wait anymore we all just decided to go down the stairs. The thing I hate the most is that I always have to use the restroom during the most inconvenient time, so when we finally reached the lobby I really had to go use the restroom so I told everyone that I really had to go and that I’ll just meet them at the hotel. After I was done ^.^ I went back to the hotel room and guess who I saw walking in front of me. Yeah you probably guessed it right, Yuki and Miki WTF right. I was actually really shocked because I thought they would have left for the Autograph session that was in about an hour. I felt like such a stalker because I was literally following them towards the elevator and to the hotel rooms upstairs. What made it even more stalkerish was that there was no one there in the hallway, so it was only Yuki and Miki walking in front of me but they were pretty far from me. I was a little nervous so I actually stopped for a while to see if they would catch the elevator first and then I could take the second one after them but that didn’t seem like the case because I soon made it to the elevator where they were waiting for. When I got there they both turned around and just stared at me, I was pretty nervous because this was the first time I was standing next to any V-Kei/JRock artists.
So when they turned around they took a glance at me and I looked at them and said “Ohayo” while waving. They both nodded and said good morning back to me. At this point I was just thinking like “oh wow they must think I’m a crazy fan who is secretly stalking them, LOL.” While we were three waiting for the elevator to open it finally did and then all of a sudden a guy comes (wearing a staff badge) and I was thinking like ugh is this their bodyguard or something. So when we four got into the elevator Yuki asked me what floor I was on and I told him 4, the funny thing was he already pressed floor 4 for him and Miki. After the other guy who was a staff too pressed floor 2 I then realized that he wasn’t even a bodyguard or anything this guy was just some random staff guy who so happened to catch a ride on the elevator with us. After the staff guy left it was just Yuki, Miki and I on the elevator. It was pretty quiet so I decided to break the ice. I asked them what time they were going to the autograph and photograph session since it was only 30 minutes away, (Note: my Japanese is terrible, I spoke to them in english with a few Japanese words but still it was really bad). I tried my best to talk to them in English slowly and easily so that they could understand what I was trying to say, but then Yuki thought I was asking for a picture so he told me, “shashin” which he thought I wanted to take a picture with both of them and then I realized that’s what he thought I meant and I just went along and told him, “yes can I?” he said “sure sure” and we then started for our hotel room. Bare this in mind that when all of this was happening we were still walking towards our hotel rooms and they were both in front of me while I was walking in the back of them. When we were getting closer to my hotel I noticed that we were all still walking in the same direction. Now we were in the hallway to the rooms and Yuki asked me if my room was this way and I told him yes I was. We finally reached the end of the hall and I told them that my room was the last one on the left and then they both laughed and said, “ehhhh” our room is the one right next to your’s. Such a funny and crazy coincidence that their room was right next to our room the whole entire time! I laughed and told them, “Really? Ehhhhh! How funny.” I asked them if I can go to my room to go get my camera so that I could take pictures with them and they said yeah yeah sure. Okay this was the funniest part, LOL because I was still trying to process this in my mind about what just happened. I went to the room and everyone was still eating breakfast, I then looked for my camera and yelled that Mix Speaker’s was rooming right next to us and told the girls for us to go take pictures with them. Remember that we just woke up an hour ago and we didn’t get ready yet, so some of the girls didn’t have makeup on yet. They said they didn’t want to because they looked like crap and that they didn’t have makeup on but I just told them to hurry up and come outside because this was a once in a lifetime chance. Meanwhile I was looking for Ryan but he was still in the bathroom. We went out in the hallway and saw Yuki standing there while Miki was grabbing some stuff in their hotel room. After he was done we started taking pictures. We took a couple of shots and then after that Ryan walks out with a towel on his shoulders and we laugh at him because he just comes out all of a sudden. Ryan wanted a picture so he went and stood next to Yuki and Miki. After we were all done with our shots I told both of them thank you and waved bye.
During this time I was still trying to process everything in my head. I was really happy I got to see them and take pictures with them, this was the highlight of AUSA for me. After we finished packing we headed downstairs where most of the crew was at and I was looking for one of my friend Kitty. She was the one who won the drawing to go see them. So I was really happy because I got to take another picture with them, because if you show them that you bought a t-shirt then you could take a picture with them.
I think Yuki and Miki probably remembered me from earlier because when I went to go sit down they both waved and smiled. I love how most of them have peace signs. ;) So cute.
Afterwards I said goodbye and we headed back downstairs. AUSA was very exciting and fun because I was able to experience how it felt like to be a Maid, awesome friends and Mix Speaker’s.
On the last day I also got to meet a cosplayer who watches my youtube videos which is awesome. <3 Love meeting and seeing people who watch my stuff. Met Mei-Nya, wasn’t her cosplay cute!
Well I think that about sums up AUSA and the Maid Cafe. I know it was a lot of crap to read but hey if you enjoyed it then great! I mean you can always be lazy like me sometimes when it comes to blogs and just look at the pictures since they already tell you what happens. I’ll probably go to Katsu next year maybe if I’m not busy. If I am then I will definitely be cosplaying as Kagome from Inuyasha.
Also, I will be having a review on the Maid Dress and other good stuff soon. ;D
Talk to you guys next time!~~~~~
AUSA Hotel Crew <3 Thanks everyone for making AUSA so fun and exciting!!
Hello Everyone! I will be a maid this year at AUSA’s My Cup of Tea Maid Cafe.
Please come by and say hi or visit our cafe. I will be there on both days Friday and Saturday.
Remember my name is Maid Risa !!!
See you guys there!!!!!!
Okay so this was not from today but from yesterday. So if you follow me on FB then you guys already know that yesterday was 2Ne1’s US concert in New Jersey. I had such a blast. I will blog more about this soon. But yeah awesome part is that I have light hair again, woo it’s so much more fun having light hair when you camho. This is not the finished look though, I still have to add some color to it. Probably going to do it tomorrow. Lah well I gotta go shower so ttyl. Night loves!
Note: Pic Heavy
It’s been a long time since I blogged. So I wanted to blog especially about this awesome event I went to last weekend. It was the East Coast’s biggest Anime Convention: Otakon! Overall it was the best con I’ve gone to, well maybe because this time I actually had the time to cosplay and get a hotel with friends so that made it all worth it. So just letting you guys know this was a 3 day event that took place in Baltimore, Maryland. I took tons of pictures! I also made a VLOG so remember to go check that out if you haven’t already. Okay well lets get this show started!
On the way heading out to Otakon in sweetie’s new car. ;)
Guess who I cosplayed as, …..
Orihime Inoue <3 xoxo from Bleach.
Bleach is such an awesome anime/manga series. I tried watching it but it was just too long LOL, so what I do is just keep up with what is going on (current) by what Ryan tells me because he reads the manga online. ;O HAHA
I would have wanted to cosplay as Rukia but I think me being as Orihime is better because my chest is bigger LOLS, unless I found a way to make them babies smaller without feeling suffocated I would have gotten a black wig and cosplayed as Rukia instead. So that being said it was Orihime FTW.
So I chose Friday to cosplay as Orihime. It was such a hassle to put on the wig because I have a lot of hair plus I feel like my head is so big. O.O
When Ryan and I reached out Hotel we were the first one’s there so we decided to camho, actually I did. HAHA
I was so happy with some of the shots that he took because they came out so nice, and plus there was good lighting so I was able to edit them nicely.
So nice for a first time cosplay right. ;) Man I love these photos, thanks to Sweetie for these great shots. Big thanks to my mom for making all of the cosplay outfits for my sisters and me. Also, to my sister Bee because she sent me the outfits. ;) Gracias SIS!
If you guys want info/my opinion on these wigs and accessories then <3 or reblog.
These were shots I took in the Hotel room but I also took some at the Con.
So here’s a picture of Orihime and me together, pretty close to it eh. ;)
After my shoot it was Ryan’s turn. I really wanted to take some nice pictures of him because I took such a long time to make him super Anime/cool looking.
I did his hair and makeup for him. The look was a very dark look but alluring. I also dyed his hair for him a couple days earlier before the con. The color was this nice red that was dark but still light.
Up Close on the makeup and hair. Is that bottom lashes why yes it is!
BTW these circle lens are the Doll Eye Grey.
I think this was the only good shot of us together during the con, came out great we look like an anime couple now. weeeee
So Friday’s musical guest’s were Mikako Joho (Above) and Vixx. I was so happy to get her autograph and a picture taken with her. She was so sweet and omg she was so amazing live. I seriously love her voice, it’s so angelic and nice. She sings in a high pitch voice but very soft and angelic like.
Here’s the pic autograph I got from her. SeeSeeWorld FTW !!! ;)
Check out her MV, this is not her official YT account it was just uploaded by this user. Thank goodness because I can’t find the official one anywhere. ;( I really wish she had her own YT and more songs. She deserves more fans and credit because she has amazing talent.
Ryan got to shake hands with her . \
Man I was so bummed out because the signing for VIXX was closed because there was way too many people who was already lined up for it. I’m glad I was able to get Mikako’s autograph. ;)
So after meeting Mikako Joho we just went around the con and took pictures with random people who cosplayed. LOL this was so funny because I thought this was KON from Bleach from afar but when I came closer I realized that it wasn’t him. Such a fail. I’m not sure who he was suppose to be, but oh well the bear was cute.
Afterwards we met up with friends. TIDA!!!!! My cutie pie. She was cosplaying as a human version of Umbreon. Cute neh.
Already so jump start into Saturday LOLS.
So Saturday I cosplayed as Lucy from To Heart 2.
So i’m pretty sure you guys know which one I cosplayed as. If not then I don’t not what to tell you.
It was so frekin hot outside but inside was really cool. We were waiting in line for some Starbucks. Afterwards we headed into the Dealers Room, which is basically just the place where you get to buy all sorts of stuff like anime, mangas, plushies, kpop stuff etc. All sorts of stuff.
Look Hangry and Angry <3 So cute.
For all you Gundam Lovers!!!! WOOO
Alright so it was right after we got out of the dealers room and just hung around talking to friends when all of a sudden Ryan was like ” OMG Sweetie LOOK!”
I turned around and there I saw VIXX members running walking. Since they were still here they wandered around the con and took pictures with their fave cosplayers or people who dressed up to their liking. It was such a crazy moment. I was totally fangirling because this was the first time I got to see a K-POP boy band so up close. I was about to ask one of them for a picture but sadly there were security and bodyguards around them so I didn’t want to be so rude and just shove in and ask. Plus I don’t even know Korean LOLS.
It was so frekin awesome because they waved hi to me and that totally made Otakon worth it for me. Man this was the best con I’ve gone to so far.
Watch their Official MV here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pT0rl2luupY&feature=BFa&list=FLK6AWJslhU5KbRaY7QHaQ1g
Yep so these were the only pictures that I was able to get from them because I was recording it the whole time. I gotta say Otakon was epic to me because I got to see them up close. ;) WOOO
I thought it was so cute because after VIXX was about to leave to a restricted place this cute little girl dressed up in a Kimono came up to ask for a picture. I just told her “oh why don’t you just take a picture with me, and she said oh really okay!” I love how were almost the same height HAHA. Yeah yeah I know I’m short or shall I say FUN SIZED Buahahahahha.
I had to urge Ryan to take a picture with her since he loves One Peace so much. Can you guys guess who she is cosplaying as. Pretty sure you can if you love One Peace too.
Here’s an awesome picture to end this blog post of Otakon.
Overall I had so much fun at Otakon. It was great meeting new people and seeing friends again. Next time I’ll try to take more pics of people cosplaying. This was my first time cosplaying so it was a great experience. I hope to be a better cosplayer and hopefully get somewhere with it. I gotta say the best parts about going to an anime convention is the guest list and being happy and dorky with awesome people there who share the same interests too. If you guys haven’t gone to an anime convention GO!!!! It will be such an amazing experience. Just save up, have fun for 3 days and live the Anime life for once.
I VLOGed so go check out my video okay for the a look closer look at the con and all that fun stuff.
Bye Guys !!! Love Love <3 -SeeSeeWorld MUAH
So I’m still rocking out to T-ara’s song Day By Day so I thought I’d give the k-pop makeup a try. This is just an inspired look so calm down those of you who think this is an exact replica of their makeup. So just have fun and enjoy these pics from today. I will post up more pics @Instagram, so if you want more pics then your going to have to follow me on there.
Follow me there @xxseeseeworldxx
TTYL <3 <3 <3
Are you guys in LOVE with Hatsune Miku too? Well I sure am. I got inspired to do this edit of Hatsune Miku from her MV Hirai Hirai. I love this song, I’ve been listening to it this whole day. HAHA. It’s just so addicting. It’s a mixture of sad and refreshing to me. Well here is the link to the MV if you guys have not seen it yet,
This is how the original picture of Miku. ;)
Now here’s my crappy edit version LMAO!
Yeah yeah I know it’s not frekin amazing or whatever but when I have the time/money to order a nice blue wig from eBay, I will totally get one and cosplay Miku from this MV/look. She looks so fucken cute! Argh how I wish I could look like Miku, that would be a dream come true. HMM I wonder if there has been any girls out there who has done plastic surgery to make them look like Miku. >xD
That would be cool to see a real life Miku.
Well I was experimenting with eye makeup (lashes) to see what lashes would look good for cosplaying. HMM I think this would be a good look since it makes my eyes look super frekin huge. I still have 2 more weeks to experiment so hopefully I get some done before Otakon.
These pictures were taken from my iphone app. I love this app, its called Camera 360. I found out about this iphone app from Xiaxue’s blogpost about the different apps that she uses to edit her pictures. I also downloaded other apps that she posted too. Go read her blogpost for more info on these cute apps.
Alright just a short blog on this look, I will be doing a review on Dolly Wink lashes soon ;)
Hey EVERYONE!!!! Yes, I finally have a new makeup tutorial up. HAHA I know it’s been way too long. Well hope you guys try this look out and just have fun with it. If you guys don’t wear dark makeup then just try this and camho at home for fun LOL. But for those of you gals who are daring and love Gyaru makeup then hope this helps. Sorry if this tutorial is not the best, I was testing out my new bottom lashes I made. This video was actually filmed 2-3 weeks ago but I just never got the chance to upload it. Well good thing Ryan pushed me to upload it by today. ;) YEAH! for Ryan
So first I will just go over in details of all the products I used in this makeup tutorial and then at the end I will just post up all of the pictures from this look.
-Foundation: FairyDrops in the shade Light Ocher
This is a Japanese BB Cream that is one of the best coverage for those who have post acne scars or just dark spots. I like it a lot because its an all day coverage. A lot of people tend to think that I have flawless skin but sadly i’m human too so yes I have flaws and that is post acne scars, uneven skin tone and etc. Although I don’t break out as much as how I use to back then I did have to suffer with the aftermath of having acne. It sucks but I just have to deal with it. So I’m trying to get rid of them by just using face masks like (My Beauty Diary in Black Pearl) and other face masks. BB Cream is also working cause its not has harsh as foundation. BTW I do have a review for this BB Cream so if you would like to see it then just clock here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHaUwQy5CIc
You can buy this product here: http://www.prettyandcute.com/-Fairydrops-Candy-Bar-BB-Cream-p3280.html
- Powder: Maybelline New York Mineral Power in the shade Classic Ivory Light 2
So the powder that I use is a drugstore one. I didn’t think this face powder was going to work because it was from the drugstore, but to my surprise it actually does a really good job. The coverage is really nice. I saw the only con is that although this is a good coverage the color is a little off, since I have a yellow undertone and this powder has more of a pink undertone. ><
So these circle lens are the Kimchi Bambi Grey. I did a review on these lens already so if you guys want more info then check on that. ;) But here is the link for the lens if you guys are planing to get them.
-Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer
-Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
- Naked Palette (Colors used: Buck and Darkhorse)
Well as you guys know this is the famous NAKED palette from Urban Decay and I swear almost every girl has it. LOL from what I think. If you guys don’t have one then I strongly recommend you to get one. It comes with a brush and a primer. The primer is awesome!
- White eyeshadow (from palette I got from Ross)
Sorry guys I don’t now the name to this because it was like just one of those random palette you would find at Ross. HAHA
-Black Gel Eyeliner: Maybelline New York EyeStudio in the color Blackest Black
Man this gel eyeliner is pretty sexy LOL what I mean is that the color is really dark when you apply it on. You can find this at any drugstore nearby like Wal-Mart Target CVS etc. I say go for Wal-Mart because it’s cheaper. HAHA
- Pencil Eyeliner : Makemania in the color Black
I think this eyeliner is better for smudging and having that smokey look. It does not last all day long like some of those pencil eyeliners that claims to last for the whole day. So if your looking for an all day pencil then this might not be for you. This is more for that smudgy sexy eyes look. ;)
Searched this up on ebay and it was the cheapest one ;)
-Top Lashes : Koji Spring Heart False Eyelashes in # 12 Dynamite Volume
-Bottom Lashes : designed it myself ;)
So the top lashes are from the Japanese brand Koji Spring Heart and I love these lash series because they make it so dramatic and dark. These are huge. ;) In a good way. You know come to think about it, these are the darkest/longest lashes I own. I bought these when I was in New York.
You can buy them here though: http://www.beautydive.com/products/531-koji-spring-heart-false-eyelashes-12-dynamite-volume.aspx
For the bottom lashes I bought them off on ebay and just redesigned them to a different shape.
Here’s how the original packaging and shape looks like:
Then here’s how I designed them to:
So the second one you see is actually the ones that I am wearing in the tutorial the rest are just random ones I made. ><
-NYX Eyebrow Pencil in the shade Light Brown
I love using this frekin eyebrow pencil. >< HAHA Funny thing is that since Ryan’s hair is lighter now I use this on him too. ;) The awesome thing about this brow pencil is that the price is affordable ($5) and it comes with the brush at the other end so that after you’re done with the pencil you can use the brush and make your brows look more natural and softer. I bought this at a beauty store in town.
(BTW this is also the cheapest one on ebay) Man you guys better love me for finding these cheap good deals on ebay for you guys HAHA >< I kid I kid ^^
(or do I xD)
- Love & Beauty in the shade PINK
This lipstick was cheap so that’s why I bought it. Overall the color is nice, it has some shimmer to it that looks a little gold but not really. The overall color is a medium pink tone.
WAHHH finally >< man I felt like that took forever, maybe it was just because I had to go look for these online. ;) Well I hope you guys appreciate it, because that would mean so much to me.
If you guys need anything else or would just like more info on something that I posted then just message me and I’ll be glad to answer them for you. Don’t be shy.
Okay so we’ve come to the end where I will now post up all of the camho pics from this look. ENJOY ! I’ll TTYL <3
So last Saturday Ryan and I decided to go visit New York since its been such a long time since we’ve been there. Crazy how 4 months have gone by so quick already.
We just decided to go visit and hang out at the places we usually would go to when we were still living in New York. I say the biggest thing that brought back memories of NY was getting a metro card and riding the underground trains again.
LOL, Ryan looks like such a creeper in this photo, because his eyes are out of his glasses. HAHA
Here you go! This is much better LOL ^__^
We were headed to Korean Town. K-Town is great because they have The Face Shop there and also tons and tons of restaurants!
One of our favorite spots to eat in K-Town is the Cafeteria, because they have Red Mango there and also many great selections of food. ;)
We ordered some Soba Noodles, or as I call it “Cold Yummy Noodles.” ;)
If you guys have not tried this then definitely give it a try they are so good.
So for those of you who never had this dish before, what you do is simply dip the cold brown noodles in the sauce that is at the top left corner.
For me I only dip the cold noodles half way in the sauce because I think it’s a little too salty for me.
The food that is in the small containers are the side dishes that you would eat with the cold noodles.
To finish off my sweet tooth we got some frozen yogurt from Red Mango.
This is a mix of green tea and mango frozen yogurt. For the toppings I like it fruity so there’s watermelons, strawberries, and blueberries.
A picture with my cute Rilakuma phone case. Well sadly I guess these are not the real legit ones from San X but they look really similar to it so oh well. xP
Honestly this phone case has saved my iphone from so many damages, because I dropped it at least 3 times. There were 2 times when I dropped it on hard cement floor and 1 time on wooden floor. This phone case is very durable and catches the fall nicely since its rubber.
I’m surprised my hair turned out nice since I had to wake up at 7am to do my hair and make-up real quick and leave for NY. xD
Here’s a NG picture that sorta turned our okay LOL, was getting ready for the picture shot when Ryan just snapped it. Out of all the pics we took he said this was his favorite LOL. “A natural shot of you sweetie” - Ryan
HAHA I swear taking pictures with Ryan is so funny because he can be such a dork, every time I’m like hey babe lets take pictures and in the end they turn out like this, LOL his lurker face or sometimes his Derp Face.
So I guess if kisses and hearts were able to be seen this is how Ryan would receive them from me LOL. <3 xoxo
Alright I guess that’s it for the camwhore pics LOL
Funny thing was when we were walking back to the train station from K-Town I saw this poster.
HAHA, I laughed because this brought back so many memories of my childhood. Yes I was an H.O.T fanatic. So first thing was “OMG, babe its Kang Ta haha” Ryan didn’t even know what I was talking about LOL. Well for those of you guys who don’t know H.O.T was the DBSK back in the 90s they were the most popular boy band back then when I was a kid.
Man they are still HOT today. Sadly I can’t attend this party since its only in 3 locations. Well for those of you guys who are going have fun partying to awesome songs from the 90s ^^.
OOO so for those of you guys who don’t know, I am a huge fan and totally in love with the TV series (How I Met Your Mother).
I’ve seen mostly all of the episodes but I still need to catch up on season 7.
Well as most of you guys know “How I Met Your Mother” is based on the main character Ted (guy on the far left) who is narrating the story of how he met his wife to his two kids a girl and a boy who are in their teens. His ex/good friend is Robin the girl next to him. Then there is Barney the AWESOME womanizer. Last we have Lily and Marshall the cutest and funniest couple ever. (Ryan Loves Marshall HAHA, thats his favorite character.) For me my favorite character would have to be Barney.
He is such a talented actor, WHY? because in this TV series he play as a womanizer but in reality he is actually gay and very open with his relationship to his fiance. They both have 2 kids. ;) I honestly didn’t know that he was gay until I did some research of the TV series. This is when you know that someone is a really talented actor when they can play a character that is way beyond who they really are in reality. I gotta say, if it was not for Neil Patrick Harris this show would not be AWESOME! and LEGENDARY!
So this story takes place in the Big Apple, New York City, well preferable in Manhattan. The bar that they always go to in the story is called MacLaren’s, which is actually based on a real bar in New York called McGee’s. So when Ryan and I was in NY we decided to look up this bar and pay a visit to it.
Awesome part was that you could come and watch the new episodes here every Monday.
When you walk inside you could see a lot of pictures of the cast. Sadly this one didn’t have Marshall. =___=
I couldn’t help but get this shirt. LOL Barneys Awesome line from the show.
I didn’t have time to take a picture with me wearing it, but I will post up pictures of it later. The size is perfect, fits nicely because this is a girl shirt.
We eventually got to meet up with Sai, (Ryans good friend).
This was when we were in ChinaTown sipping up bubble tea from Kung Fu Tea.
Their bubble tea is really good, I would recommend this place to anyone who has not been there before.
We were so hungry after so we headed over to Ryan’s old work place, YOKOCHO.
Bim Bim Bop was yummy but a little too spicy after I added loads of the sauce to it LOL. HMMM Chicken gizzards are the bomb. So frekin delicious.
Alright, now its time to rave about what I bought.
This is the Black Pearl Mask from My Beauty Diary. I have been using face masks for a while now and I’ve got to say they are amazing and now I wonder why didn’t I start using this before. xP Well for best results you should use this at least 2-3 times a week. I use at least 2 face masks each week. One on Sunday to start off the week and then the second one on Thursday. I also have Korean Face Masks too so I switch off different face mask types.
This is the Korean Face Mask that is from Dabo, I bought these from a Korean Shop in Virginia. These face masks are more sticky so they stick more on your face than the Japanese ones. The Japanese ones have more liquid to them than these Korean ones. Overall I like both but the think about these Dabo face masks is that if the serum gets into your eyes it burns! But don’t worry if that happens then just get a wet cloth and wet it with cold water and tap that on your eyes, that will ease the burn and also make your eyes feel better from the sting.
If you guys are wondering where in the heck can you guys buy these if you don’t live close to any Japanese or Korean beauty store then no worries there is always the internet for that. ;)
Here are a couple of online sites where you can buy these face masks.
Pretty & Cute sells the box as well as the Single packs.
I say buy the whole box because it’s worth it and your going to be using more than 1 each week anyways.
Well last time I checked on ebay if they had the Korean ones and they did but for some reason I can’t find them anymore. =___= Well always search up these face masks on ebay and amazon first and see if its legit and then buy it from them because its way much more cheaper. ;)
So I’ve been late on my videos and such so I’m gunna be working on those now. ^__^ Hope you guys try out these face mask because your going to love them. ;)
Talk you guys later in my next blog. <3 xoxox
