So lately I have started to work with some resin. This has been a fun and new experience for me  and I find working with resin quite enjoyable! Here are a few things that I have made that I thought were nice enough to be shared.

Some of these I have embellished with crystals and do not have pictures yet.

 I made this one for my Aunt's birthday, it is a key-chain and I even got the sand from my local beach so she could take a little bit of home back with her!

 This one is my brother's as an added gift for his birthday he loves his heroes!

 The elephant also ended up being a gift for my cousin if you can't tell the sticker is squishy
 This one is mine and is really big! people think its a Reese's cup! If you look carefully along the edge you can see the flowers I put in, the sticker is also squishy!
 I have a boy panda sticker that I want to make a pair with.
 I know it is hard to see but it does say "It's a Girl" when I started with the resin I got all different kinds of confetti and this is one and I was just playing around with them... If I had to do another one I wouldn't do the pink glitter, makes seeing everything too difficult.
 I really like this one the kitty almost looks like it is floating in a little galaxy! I have more kitty and puppy stickers that I want to use so more to come of these!
 I LOVE LISA FRANK! But not the human part of it...they creep me out a little. This is actually a tattoo! When this is held up to the light it has a cool effect with swirls and stuff.....want to do more!

 This is one of my favorite necklaces that I have made!

Was suppose to be just a "It's a Boy" but there was an accident and the whole thing got tilted so I added more resin to level it out and add the "It's a Girl" confetti so now it is "TWINS!"

So that is it for now but there are more in the making! Let me know what y'all think!

Even still

This is for those of you who don't like to wear Lolita out side of the house or a big group.(I know it is SCARY!)

Are you scared or nervous of leaving home while wearing Lolita and doing so by yourself?
Well I know how you feel every time I leave my apartment, on a day off from work and spend the day doing what ever it is I do, I can't help but think, "Will any one harass me about my outfit or make a rude comment?" Well its gonna happen and probably has for some I know it can be a confident killer. But one thing I like to think about, after giving myself a pep-talk, is that most people wear outfits because they saw it in a magazine or its whats available and have no idea why they wear it or where the fashion style came from. As Lolita's we tend to research the beginnings of the Lolita fashion ( I know I did) and decide to wear it not only that we like it and feel comfortable but because it does have a good rich history behind the lace and frills. That and I like that this is a more sophisticated fashion with longer skirts and appropriate blouses. I am a O.T.K sock person and just feel wrong wearing any skirt or dress without them (kinda feels naked) and to me that seems less....what would a good word be? slutty? I already have pretty longs legs and when wearing skirts or shorts I feel as if I am walking around in my undies...its not a comfortable feeling and I feel that when I see a young girl walking around in "Daisy Duke" style shorts that she is showing way too much for my tastes..I like to keep in mind that not everyone is going to like the Lolita fashion but I do find many where I live that will stop me and say they like my skirt or want to know more about my outfit. I tend to ignore everyone else and keep a slight smile on my face because I am getting the rare chance to wear clothes outside my house that I like. Oh sure I say hi and nod at people I notice noticing my outfit but if they give me an odd look I either smile sweeter at them making them feel embarrassed that they were caught staring or they look away and leave me alone.

One day I was in Books-A-Million wearing one of my Lolita outfits and I was stopped by a little boy (about 9-12 in age I guess) and he asked me "why are you wearing that?". I LOVE how kids are honest and open and ask questions because they just want to know and not to be MEAN or rude. So in return I asked the little boy, "well, why are you wearing what you're wearing?", and without missing a beat he replied, " cuz what I am wearing is awesome!" and he turned and simply walked away.... Now I have posed that same response to anyone that asks why I am wearing any type of clothing.. and it makes them think about why they are wearing what they are and whether or not their question was appropriate...but I do always remind myself to be nice even if the other person has NO MANNERS and tell myself, " this will make for a funny story later!"
