Ladies Day ~ Hime Gyaru

Last Saturday I went to the races with my friends for Ladies Day~
People tend to go all out with huge fascinators and fancy dresses so I took the opportunity to dress Hime Gyaru without looking totally out of place
Dress: Yumetenbo
Shoes: Yumetenbo
Flowers: Topshop & New Look
Hair Pieces: Prisila

At first I was like 'wearing all this hair in this heat is gonna be a disaster' but it turned out to not be so bad~

Before the races we went to my friends house for brunch and Pimms cause he lives near the racecourse
Here's a picture of us all dressed up for a change~ 
*excuse my awkward pose I was trying to bend down so I wasn't blocking anyone with my hair*
I've noticed I tend to dress up more during the day than for nights out or events and stuff
Who wants to wear heels when they're drinking? I've never understood that logic

And at the actual races~

It was actually a really good day out~
Just kinda chilling and having a picnic

And the best part is I won on my first ever bet
I picked the horse with the fanciest name and it came first

And since I haven't updated forever I might was well write about DEATHGAZE in London too, even though it was almost a month ago

My hotel room didn't have a full length mirror so I couldn't take a proper outfit shot, but you can kinda see the rest in the next picture
Leggings: Topshop
Shoes: Ebay

Pretty much the only other picture of me from that day 
I planned on taking loads but it was so hot I just couldn't be bothered, and I spent most of my time running to Sainsbury's to get water 

But I was super glad I got to meet Kitty and Kacey~ They're so lovely omg
(I stole both these picture from Kitty's Facebook, hope she doesn't mind oops)
I went down by myself like I did last year for SCREW, but this time I actually had people to talk to~ 
Even though I'm really bad at talking to people

I met a load of other nice people too cause we went out for cocktails after

Anyway the gig itself was so amazing, they're a lot better live than recorded in my opinion~
The whole atmosphere was waaaay better than SCREW last year too
I just hope EAT YOU ALIVE come to London on their EU tour so I can go back down and hopefully meet more awesome people (and actually speak this time maybe)

But then, as always when I'm in London, disaster struck
I got stuck in one of the lifts at the tube and missed my train home
So I had to pay another £90 to get back 3 hours later
There's some kinda bad omen on me going down there

Giveaway Update & Actually Posting~

For my 6000 tumblr follower giveaway here, I really wanted to have two winners, since my last one got cancelled.
However, last night at around 2:30am, some kids set our car and 4 others on fire

Ours was the least damaged cause we think it was the last one they did, but it's still had to be written off cause the dashboard's totally melted
It was just a random act of destruction, God knows why, they set a bin on fire and smashed a few other car windows too.
3 people have been arrested in 'connection with crime in the area' but we don't know if its them or not

So, since now we have to buy a new car, there's no way I'll be able to afford to pay for 2 winners
I'll raise the wig amount back to 5000JPY, but unfortunately that's all I'll be able to afford
((I knew something would go wrong with this one too))

Since I'm actually posting for once I may as well post some outfit shots

Poncho: Liz Lisa
Blouse: Yumetenbo
Skirt: Yumetenbo

I've gotten so lazy with my hair, I need it dyed but I'm waiting for the purple to fade more so I can put another colour on

Hat: Yumetenbo
Jumper: Camden
Leather Jacket: H&M
Jeans: Topshop
Boots: Topshop

 My GLAD NEWS jacket came a few weeks ago too~
I think I'm gonna wear it when I go to see DEATHGAZE in London, if it's not too warm~

I actually wore these 2 in the same day, it felt kinda weird wearing such contrasting clothes in the space of a few hours

All from Yumetenbo

Outfit from H&M, shoes from Vivienne Westwood

 Tried slightly darker make up too, I don't normally wear much eyeshadow or bottom liner but I thought it went with my outfit more than my usual make up
Not sure I'll try it again though

Giveaway Take 2

Since Tumblr were nice enough to delete my last giveaway, I've decided to re-make it via Rafflecopter

The entry rules are exactly the same~
You must:
Be following me, rikkaboshi@tumblr
Like Uniqso’s Facebook page, uniqso@facebook
For extra entries:
Follow my blog, rikkaboshi@blogspot
(even though I'm awful at updating uvu)
Follow Uniqso’s blog, uniqso@blogspot

The prizes are also (almost) exactly the same:
Barbie Luna Violet Circle Lenses, sponsored by Uniqso. (Full review here)
Luminous Change Lashes - Feminine OR Doll Eye
Diamond Lash - Natural Eye (lower lashes)
Any wig/hairpiece(s) under ¥4000 from Global Rakuten

Also, since I now have over 6000 followers, and feel kinda bad that the last giveaway was cancelled, I will now be choosing two winners~
Both winners will get the exact same prizes

a Rafflecopter giveaway

➀ I originally bought the Feminine Eye style from - however I really dislike Sasa, and prefer using Ichibankao, who do not sell that style. The first winner to reply will get a choice of the two lashes, and the second will get whichever is left over
As there will now be two winners, I won't be able to afford to pay ¥5000, with shipping on top, per person, so I've had to reduce the amount uvu
This can be any store on Global Rakuten of your choice - but only ONE store. If you want more than one wig/hairpiece they have to be from the same seller, due to the way Global Rakuten ships.
Here are a few stores that sell wigs/hairpeices

Wig in Bloom

New York & Gets~

I went to New York City on the 4th of March~
It was my first time out of the EU so I was pretty excited
I was kinda nervous too cause I don't really like crowded places, I was expecting it to be like a massive London, packed with people and kinda grimy, but it really wasn't, it was so nice ;o;
Apart from the fact no one could understand a word I said and they all thought I was Irish uvu

It was so windy and cold :c

I kinda of went a little crazy at Toys R Us but everything was so much cheaper over there uvu
Even thought I really don't understand the concept of adding tax on at the till......or the whole tipping system, it's not really a tip if it's put on the bill and added to the total...

Anyway since I got black I've pretty much done nothing but sleep, we were up every day at like 5am US time because the hotel room was so hot. 

But my stuff from TaoBao and Mbok came, I was hoping it would come before I went to America, but oh well :c

3 skirts from TaoBao~
The lace ones were around £7 and the black one with stars was only £3 ;o;

The lace ones come with these pin on bows too~
Some of the gems came off, but I can easily glue them on and I don't mind too much because they were so cheap

Liz Lisa poncho from Mbok~

 And some flowery shorts from the kids section of  Sainsbury's :x 

Poncho: Liz Lisa
Skirt: TaoBao
Boots: Liz Lisa

The skirt is actually a little too big so it kept slipping down which is why it looks so long :c
I ended up having to pin it to the shirt I had on

I also uploaded my 5000 followers giveaway post on tumblr~
It includes lashes, lenses and any wig(s) you want from Girlish Angelique (under ¥5000)~
So please go check it out if you're interested~
