In last week's art video, I made a mess of the line art. Smudged it across the page with my hand. This happens to every artist at some point, so I thought I'd do a video on how to fix it.

The rest was coloured normally with markers, except I used a lot of my new LePlume markers alongside my usual Neopiko ones.
Expect a full review of them soon!

Pokemon Centre and Vampire Cafe

This week's Tokyo Vlogs feature Ikebukuro, The Pokemon Mega Centre and Vampire Cafe.
Shinjuku, and Yushima Tenman-gu Shrine 

In the Ikebukuro Vlog, I mention Closet Child For Dolls - also known as Dolly Teria. It's just down the street from Closet Child For People.

There, I bought my doll a new outfit:

I'm still not particularly good at photographing dolls, but I love her new look!

Later that day, and later that vlog, we head over to Ginza to the Vampire Cafe.
We got the special Halloween Set Menu - which was huge - and several cocktails.

I first visited the Vampire Cafe two years ago, and it's one of my favourite spots in Tokyo.

Gothic Monster Outfit Planning

Since buying this Medusa scarf from Dangerous Nude while in Tokyo, I've been looking forward to pairing it with the skirt with the matching print I already had.
The scarf and boots make this a good winter co-ord.

This is the "Medusa" them outfit.

Blose: Bodyline
Scarf and Skirt: Dangerous Nude
Boots and Socks Offbrand

 I've also been wanting to re-work this outfit that I wore to Louise's Photography gallery last year.

I really just went over the top with bat wings, and am considering this a Dracula Theme Outfit.

Skirt: Alice and the Pirates
Bag: Patchy
Shoes: Cloudberry lady
Headband: H+M
Jacket: Dracula Clothing

Accio Tokyo Review

"Accio Tokyo" used to be Tokyo Pirates, who I have used before a did a review of at the time. They were good then, so I felt safe enough using them now for this order. 

I pre-ordered the Royal Princess Alice "Dark night Hospital" series hat and tights through Accio Tokyo on August 17th. 
There was no problem at all with the process. It involved filling out a simple order form, then waiting for my invoice for the items. 
The invoice was sent to me the next day, August 18th. 

Then it was just a matter of waiting for the items to be released, at which point they would buy them for me and invoice me for the shipping price. 
Exactly two months later they had my items and invoiced me the shipping fee on October 17th.

I got an email telling me my order had been shipped on October 19th, complete with tracking number. 

And on November 11th, it arrived to me! 

My items were packaged along with a piece of cardboard to prevent them getting crumpled in the mail. 

There were absolutely no problems at all with my order, the whole process was very smooth. 

I will almost certainly be using their service again some time.

Tokyo Clothing Haul

 While I was away, I did a lot of shopping. Mostly at the various Closet Child stores around tokyo. At first, I'd planned on doing a haul video to show you the clothes I bought, but with all the vlogs I have to edit right now I decided it'd be a better idea just to make a blog post instead.

First, I got a couple of lace-on shoe accessories. I got bat-wing accessories from Tormented Artifact almost two years ago, and started wearing them quite often last summer. Since then, the boot-wings thing has really taken off. Lots of shoe shops around tokyo had various different kinds of wings and other lace-on accessories for shoes.

I got these bunny-ears in one of the stores in Shibuya 109, and padded angel wings from a small shop on nakano broadway!

I hope this trend lasts, I really like shoe accessories.

Next, is a whole lot of stuff from the various Closet Child shops. 

Peace Now and Triple Fortune shirts.

Alice and the Pirates coat and Waistcoat.

Putumayo shorts.

Angelic Pretty cutsew OP (left),
and the one thing not from Closet Child, is the striped dress on the right. It's from Berunika, also in nakano broadway.

Next up is a whole selection of things bought around Harajuku. Since I was there for halloween season it was prime time for Guro accessories!

Bag from Swimmer, syringe necklace from Broken Doll, and pill print stockings from Listen Flavour.
The nurse hat is from BlahBlahHopsital in the MaruiAnnex in Shinjuku.

Two pairs of offbrand socks, and a medusa print scarf from Dangerous Nude.
I already have the skirt with the same print, and intend to wear them together!

While in Shibuya, I also picked up the NHaoto x NightmareBeforeChristmas collab bag and charm from the Disney store. I wasn't totally sure I wanted it at first, but seeing it in person completely swayed me.


I bought a starter set of "LePlume" markers from Sekaido in Shinjuku.
These will be appearing on my Art Channel

I hope you enjoyed having a look at the things I bought. There'll be a separate post for makeup purchases in the near future.
The first of my travel vlogs are now starting to appear on my channel, so please check them out too.

"The Grey" Alien Investigation

While I was away, halloween videos were still appearing on my channel. 
In case you missed it, here's "The Grey": Alien Investigation!

Now that I'm back, I will be able to edit my vlogs from tokyo and start uploading them. 
I recorded all but one day while away, so there's a lot of vlogs in the works. They'll be uploaded at two or three a week, so it doesnt take the rest of the year to get them out.
