Hyper International Summer Meet (Picture heavy)

Last weekend was the Hyper International Summer Meet!! I had been looking forward to it for sooo long (over two months, not even kidding O.O) but when it was almost there I was so unprepared! Thursday evening, the evening before the pre-meet, I still had to think about my outfits, hair, make and nails! I was happy my bf was not home.. Our living room was a mess:


(I finally bought a decent curling iron <3 )

After getting everything ready I still could not sleep, as I was way to excited >.<

For the pre-meet I went with Jojo, Zoe and Chris to meet Kitai and Jasmin. They are from Germany and had arrived the day before already, so we figured it would be fun to show them a little bit of Utrecht and have lunch together, before the organised dinner. The only flaw in that plan was that none of us was very familiar with Utrecht xD This was my look for that day:


After having lunch we of course had to take a group selfie in a beautiful garden we found.

 

With Kitai \(^o^)/

With Chris <3

Doesn't it look cool with this background? It was really nice meeting up with everyone again! And at this point we had already picked Chihiro up from the station as well ^^ We just spend the day talking and hanging around Utrecht, so we did not take many pictures >.< 

After what felt like just minutes we went to meet up with the rest for dinner:

(nomnom ^^)

We went home quite early as everybody was tired of travelling and after all the real meet would only begin the next day!

This was my look for the saturday:

(In the train selfie, I was late)

We met up at the station and from there walked over to the venue. It was a really cute place at one of the waterways in Utrecht with amazingly comfortable pink and black chairs next to the water. I was really sure someone would eventually fall in the water with all the high heels xD




I was really happy so many people had come to the meeting! Some I hadn't seen anymore since the Frankfurt meet or OshareCon! So of course loads of selfies were made (don't worry I will just upload a small selection -.^ for more check my instagram account):

With Jojo ^^ I look a bit creepy here sorry!

With Kuro! She was the best rokku there for sure!

With Zoe <3

We sneaked away with a small group after a while to go to McDonalds, since we forgot to have lunch (and some hadn't even had breakfast yet O.O)

Hahaha sorry Kuro xD

I was so happy! Seeing all these amazing people again ^^ I was still tired from working my ass of at my new job before, but Coming here made it all better! I even won a free pair of CL at the raffle *^* 

In the evening we had a BBQ and after that people performed some para para. I decided to start practicing this as well! It looked so cute. I made a movie of one of the Plutonium gals' performances:

 

They are really good! And it isn't hard to see how much they enjoy doing this ^^



Wes and Juliet also threw in some performances! Wes was actually kind of forced xD

At first we thought we would stay until 4 partying with everybody, but at some point people just started going home and we figured, we'd better get on one of the last trains home to still be sort of alive the next day -.^

So on sunday we meant to go and have a nice relaxed picknick, except for the fact that it rained really hard all morning.. It is still the Netherlands after all >.< So we went to a roof terrace at the station. Most people were pretty tired, myself included, so we took it easy. Still of course loads of selfies, but I will only put a few here:

Mammas Zoe and Isa making us strawberry waffles <3

With Christine and Lily

Could not stay serious xD



 The German Velvet gyarusa joined this day as well! I did not get to talk to them much unfortunately but it was so nice to see them again \(^o^)/ We decided we should visit Dusseldorf soon to meet them there and we were invited to a party with them. I'm already looking forward to this ^^

It was one of the most fun weekends I have ever had, and definitely one of the most tiring! (especially with my lack of sleep even before the meet) I hope you didn't mind the long post. I tried to keep it short >.< Can't wait to see everyone again <3

Much Love!

(Btw I have decided to only blog once a week from now on, as I found I don't have enough time for the twice a week I used to blog.)

First Agejo look

Last weekend my dad threw a big party for his 50th birthday (which was actually in april, but who cares right?) and this finally gave me the occasion to try my first agejo look with the cutest MA*RS dress ever <3


This was before doing my make and hair -.^ Isn't it just sooo beautiful ?
The party was summer/beach themed and the whole garden was decorated. 



Those beds were super comfy! So off course I claimed a spot there ^^

I made my make and hair light to match the theme without CLs because my family really does not like them (they think those look scary -.-):

 

It was a lot of fun! Especially because of the delicious (virgin) cocktails made by my sweet little bro ^.^  

Next weekend is the International Summer Meet!!! I am so looking forward to it :D
Much Love!

Earlier I wrote about my experiences at this years animeCon, but unfortunately I did not have the pictures Kuro, Zoe and I made together yet.. So I got them this week and wanted to make a short post with them ^^



(haha, my balance is so poor I just kept falling over in these heels xD)


I hope you liked these pics! As they were unfortunately at the end of the day we all look somewhat tired -.^ 

Much Love!

CL review: Bunny 3 Color Gray

The last week of uni has been really hard on me, so I had to take a week off from blogging.. Sorry about that! I did open a new insta account though on which I will post my daily tidbits -.^ You can follow me: annouschkoakuma! As I said it has been a very hectic week during which I am so happy to have received new lenses from my sponsor KlensPop: Bunny 3 Color Gray (they're always a surprise).




Some information about the lenses:

Graphic diameter: 13.7 mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6 mm
Type: 6 Months disposal



This is what the lenses look like on my light blue/gray eyes in different light circumstances:



Colour & Design: 3/5
I like the design of the lenses and colour! For my eyes however this does not really work, as my eyes are the exact same colour xD I found a picture of them on dark eyes as well though.


Enlargement: 1/5
These lenses seem to bee the same size as my own eyes. Therefore you do not really see them on my eyes. They might enlarge a bit, but it is not noticeable to me.

Comfort: 5/5
I don't feel these lenses at all while wearing them! 

Pro's:
- Look great on dark eyes
- Very natural size
- Pretty colour and design
- Super comfortable!

Cons:
- A bit small for me
- Not really noticeable on light eyes

I hope this review was helpful to you guys. I'll post again soon!

Much Love!

Agejo Style

Recently I wrote a post about wanting to try the Agejo style, as I always love this style when I see people wearing it and finally decided to want to try it on myself ^^ I found however that when people asked me about it who are not that into gal, but do read my blog occasionally, I did not know much about it.. > < Luckily we have the internet! 

We'll start of with: 


"What is Agejo?"



When looking for the answer to this question I found the following on Universal-Doll: 'When saying you’re an Agejo or you want to be one. Either implies a) you’d like to be in Ageha magazine b) you want to dress in the style c) you want to be a hostess.' So I guess we will go for the dressing in the style option -.^
It goes on explaining that the girls wearing this style originally often were hostesses, models, shop staff, dancers and occasionally college students. The can be recognized from their brown, mori hair, large sunglasses, shiny nails, big dolly eyes, black x pink clothes, short dresses, lingerie aspects (stockings, corset lacings) and brand-name bags and jewelry.


"How do you dress Agejo?"

For this I found a very interesting list on Eternise-Moi of 30 things every Agejo gal should have. I picked a few of the most style related ones:
  1. A casual agejo outfit for lazier days.
  2. At least one MA*RS coord. MA*RS is the agejo gyaru brand after all. 
  3. Ageha magazine for inspo.
  4. Suspenders (tights) as you can see in the pic on the right.
  5. Over-knee socks or thigh-highs to make your legs look longer.
  6. Glamorous false nails.
  7. A classy black handbag (I really need this).
  8. Cute heels for summer.
  9. Sexy high-heeled boots for autumn (preferable round-toed).
  10. A faux fur scarf for a super glamourous feel.
  11. Gorgeous accessories to top of any coord.
  12. Cute and sexy patterned tights.
  13. A beautiful coat to complete and compliment the look.
  14. A soft cuddly hoodie preferable with ears <3
These points make quite a list! Fortunately I can already cross a few off -.^


"Which brands are typically Agejo?"


甘くてかわいい女の子 \

As said before MA*RS is the go to brand for this style (the picture on the left), but other brands are Golds Infinity (the picture on the right), Lip Service, Jesus Diamante and Black Queen.

I also found some shops for replicas on taobao (or I assume they are): Princess Doll, Yuerfly and Princess Rose. These shops all got good reviews and were mentioned in multiple sources to be trustworthy (you can never be sure with replicas)!


I hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful! I sure did! Another special thanks to Ethernise-Moi and Universal-Doll, as I used these blogs as the main resources for this post ^^ 

Much Love!

6 min gyaru make-up challenge

Have you all heard of the 6 minutes gyaru make-up challenge Holly started? If not the video is down below:


After seeing this video I thought, I could totally do this! Well... 6 minutes is really short and Holly makes it seem much easier than it is >.< Just to see how short 6 minutes is exactly I did a trial run before taping it. As you can see the trial did not go great.


I had no mascara, only one bottom lash, sloppy eye shadow and lipstick and the glue was still drying! Oh and probably almost a heart attack as halfway through the 6 minutes I found out I lost my blush brush xD This challenge is not very good for your nerves. Anyway I tried again on film:




Please, don't mind my English! I always hate hearing myself speak it -.^ So I failed, obviously xD I was so nervous everything just went wrong! This was the final result:



So very sloppy!! Do you think you could do this challenge? For me it as very hard, but I do think it's a good skill to practice. (As I tend to oversleep often^^)

Much love!

Animecon (picture heavy)

Last weekend was Animecon again! Though I am not a hardcore anime fan, I love this event as a lot of people I know come there and there is a yearly fashion show \(^o^)/ This year I only went on sunday, because I was too busy and afterwards I am quite glad because I don't feel as much of a wreck as I would have been otherwise -.^ I went together with Kuro and Zoe and her boyfriend and we had a lot of fun! Some impressions of the event:





As you may have noticed we spent quite some time in the dealer room >.< But who'd blame us with all these amazing things? I even found a stand that sold mags! So Kuro and I both bought a Kera <3


At these events time always just seems to fly by, so before we knew it it was already time for the gyaru fashion show organised by Hyper. It was the first time they had an all gyaru fashion show at Animecon (as far as I know) and I loved it \(^o^)/







( I was so in love with Zoe's outfit <3 it looked so perfect!)


Didn't everyone look amazing? The gals from Hyper really chose a very varied group. It was so nice to see all these different styles ^^ They told me they were trying to get gyaru more well known in the Netherlands and had given a lecture and workshop during the weekend to spread the gal love! I think it worked at least a bit, as a lot of people came up to me to ask what style of gyaru I was and to say that they thought gals always look so cool <3 The idea of more people getting into gal just makes me so happy! (The Netherlands could use some more fashionable people)

After the show we went to get a drink and something to eat. I had this amazing Macha Latte and a black sesame mochi. It was so nice they ad this kind of food this year, as last time there were only fries xD


Zoe and her boyfriend looking back movies of the show xD:


After that we went back to the dealer room to look around a bit more.



These dolls are soooo cool! I am going to put them on my birthday list..


As the con day was drawing to a close we felt we had spent enough time shopping and went to watch the closing ceremony, where as a surprise Back On came on stage O.O !!


They were so cool and they gave the lucky winner of the karaoke contest a free trip to Japan O.O I would love to have won that one -.^

Anyway before going home we of course had to make some selfies.. A lot of selfies! And we had our pics taken by a professional studio ! I don't have these pictures yet, but they will be coming soon. (also outfit pictures <3 )

Oh and on the way back I indulged myself with some Pocky (don't tell my bf because I am supposed to always share them with him! -.^)


It was a great day! It's always fun just hanging out with some friends and chilling with good food. Plus at an Animecon there are so many great opportunities to watch people ^^ Next event to look forward to will be the Hyper summer meet! Hope you liked my post!

Much Love!
