pt.2 (sorry for the pole dance spam πŸ˜„) I'm just happy about that last "supergirl" pose - it was first time I did it and it's quite scary doing it in this height 😳

I know it's Tuesday evening, but I'm here with some top quality throwback πŸ‘Œ These photos are like 10 years old, from times when were trying to earn some money as film extras for German historical documents πŸ˜‚
.
I can't remember what was going on in the first one - it was some upperclass evening with with dancing and gentlemen in top hats 🎩, in the green dress we were opening railway in US while there were Nightwish recording music video for their latest song so it was a bit distracting (I was a big fan back then 😳) and on the last one we were audience in gladiator arena, deciding the fate of half-naked fighting guys πŸ‘πŸ‘ŽπŸ˜ ha ha #backinthedays #whenwewereyoung

❀️ current knit: "Princess Franklin Plaid Collar" from Franklin Habit - early Christmas gift for Honza 😊
❀️ finished book: The Night Circus from Erin Morgenstern - an unexpected read, wasn't on my to-read list and I still can't understand why I haven't read it sooner ?!! Because this book is so beautiful ❀️ I didn't want it to end and now all I want to do is order bunch of red yarn, knit my own RΓͺveurs scarf and wait for arrival of circus to Munich ... πŸŽͺ

If you're interested you can see scanned version of this picture on my new art Instagram @dominika.hladik.illustration 😊 Sometimes I'll post my pictures on both accounts, but each looking different (for example scanned and photo version) so it won't be annoying in case you're following both πŸ˜™ hope it's OK like this !

Better photos of yesterday's outfit for Christmas Lolita meet-up in NΓΌrnberg πŸŽ€ the theme was pastel colours, sweets and winter ❄️... totally NOT what I have in my lolita wardrobe πŸ˜† so this was my improvisation, at least I could finally wear these over-knee-socks with pastel blue print which is sadly not visible on photos 😌 I definitely need some cream/light-coloured ouji vest ! Love this style so much right now 😚❀️
.
Oh and outfit rundown #budgetouji blouse is from Metamorphose (it was on huge sale and it's my only blouse with short sleeves), vest is ancient, pants are second-hand from Innocent World, socks are second-hand too and shoes from thrift store 😁

Friday 23:00 we are starting to dance at raggae party with David Rodigan as DJ, Saturday 3:00 we are done with dancing on our way home, about 4:00 I went to bed, 7:00 I get up, do make up, dress up in ouji and look pretty, 9:00 in car on our way to Nürnberg, 12:00 delicious lunch at LowCarberia, 14:00 Christmas Lolita tea party starts, 18:00 departure from lolita party and back to Munich, 20:30 back home, tired, but not as much as I would expect 😁 Good start of the weekend, I must say !

the first two photos are from Sandybel where was the lolita Christmas party and food pics are from SoulFood LowCarberia πŸ‘Œ

Today's #wip for this month's CDC ☺️ Can you guess who is my burlesque muse?
.
Today I've been working the whole day while listening to Will Terry's videos and learned a lot of stuff about illustration 🎨😳
.
Also I'm slowly setting up my art account @dominika.hladik.illustration πŸ˜‡ thank you for your advices and opinions about it, yesterday ! I'm going to give it a try...but no worries, this account will stay the same chaos of everything 😁

On Sunday I had a bit of time on my hands after we arrived back from Prague, so I used it to finally do this recycling project and also learned something new 😊 The old hat was super-cute but too big for me now that I don't have dreadlocks anymore...but the yarn - Icelandic Létloppi - was too good to throw it away! So I frogged it and used it for my very first fair isle project, to practice this technique before I cast on Arboreal sweater 😁❀️
.
Oh and I forgot to say that I used pattern "Barley" from @tincanknits as base, and I found the snowflake (or is it star?) ornament on Pinterest 😊 .

Overthinking octopus is back πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ I need your opinion on something which is bothering my mind today - should I make an ART Instagram account? It would be more professional, only with pictures I want to represent myself as an artist and not experiments and stuff. I recently decided that I would like to go into direction of nice, calm, watercolor/pencil pictures with a chance of children book illustrations... and this account is just so chaotic πŸ˜‚ What do you think? It would give me more space here on this account to post fashion-related stuff, knitting, books and others from my 10000 hobbies πŸ˜…
.
Sketchbook doodles (like this one) and OCs would probably stay here as well πŸ€”

I don't even know what to say! This was soooo good ❀️❀️❀️ Siri Pettersen @siripettersen is the nicest person πŸ˜ŠπŸ’• ! We kinda overwhelmed her with questions and gifts and of course we had to take a group photo 😁 fun fact is that we @marketa_maia @elyonkas and @eris_raven all met each other IRL for the first time ! πŸ˜ƒ

BONUS: some front camera fun feat. Kuro πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†
.
I still can't believe how much a wig and few fake freckles can do 😳
.
Also maybe I should try wearing less make-up? It's not that bad πŸ€”
.
For those who wander what's happening, it's me trying to do a cosplay of Hirka from The Raven Rings books by @siripettersen πŸ’˜

When you can't wait to see @siripettersen so much that you change to Hirka overnight πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ OK, here's my humble attempt at cosplay, while I actually wanted to take some photos of the new River Braid Sweater πŸ˜‡
.
btw. I painted freckles on my face, that's a real wolf tooth on my neck and these shoes are like five sizes bigger than my feet πŸ˜‚
.
.
(confession: I freaking love cosplay and would love to do this more often and better, but I don't have time and money 😌)
.
(fun fact: I haven't read the third book yet, because I'll get it for Christmas πŸ˜³πŸŽ„πŸŽ #feelslikefiveyearsold )

Having two online shops, but still being broke, trying to develop as an artist but constantly doubting yourself, keeping up with your hobbies in the no time you have left of every day, seeing people around planning their lives and buying houses, while having empty bank account at the end of each month and panic attacks from just thinking about future...
.
...and then, hey ! It's all good ! I'm fine, if I work hard I'm going to achieve what I pursue...this is just the part of the process... isn't it? I hope so πŸ€”

Today we visited Museum of Five Continents in Munich and it was great and full of inspiration ❀️ I loved the huge statue of Budha and his guardians, found a lot of inspiration for Aesh's jewellery, got really fascinated by the "modern-looking" hairstyles and earrings of Naga tribe from 1911, saw some beautiful fabric prints, peculiar hat made of knots from Africa and saw the real DRAGON GLASS !!! 😁😁😁 (I know where to go when white walkers arrive πŸ—‘οΈοΈ)

βœ¨πŸŽ„ Christmas / Winter Holidays Greeting Cards πŸŽ„βœ¨
available on Etsy ❀️ link in bio
.
Do you like sending greeting cards to your friends and family ? I love it ! Every year I'm trying to find some nice and original designs, but this time I decided to go even further and design my own 😁
.
As I already said in the previous post - one of the things I like the most about winter holidays is the aroma - the combination of fresh pine twigs, ginger bread, cinnamon and burning incense - things I remember from my childhood and which are quite typical for Czech Christmas celebrations. But you don't have to be from Czech republic to enjoy these, you don't even have to be celebrating Christmas !
In my opinion the combination of these things is just the perfect aroma of cozy winter evenings πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘Œβ„οΈ
