meeting stylist part II

I met stylist today to show our research to each other and chat chat chat :)
She brought some images and we chose the ones we liked so then she could contact the designers to borrow them for our shoot. We also planned to go to Fancy shop in Angel to talk to the owner to borrow some accessory/outfit items next week :) Again, she is very working hard and lovely person! :)

*search cemetery in Old street
*ask hair stylist for wigs

tutorial with Emmanuelle

I just had totorial with Emmanuelle. My heart was pumping hard as I was scared of her, thinking she might gonna shout at me before the class. I was wrong. She was really nice and supportive. I told her about what happened to my previous presentation (I have to choose eighter lolita-children or princess) and she respond me like I actually could do both as long as I mentioned that Japanese Lolita fashion is different from Western's Lolita in introduction.

we discussed about;
*Japanese culture ((how little kids were brought up by girly toys and surrounding. example, Kiki Lala, Hello Kitty, some people might want to escape from Japanese strict culture(very polite, hard working etc)).
*lula magazine-one of the cover got ''Lolita'' image.
*goth/lolita fashion (the girls denied to be as a sexual object but there is fetishsm about Lolita fashion)-> read the essay ''urban Princess'' again.

*research childhood
*history etimology
*write interview questions (for Japanese lolita girls)
*research fashion

go to;
*V&A-doll fashion section...(Victor and Rolf)
*British museum
*Museum of childhood (parts of British museum in Bethn. green)

*Jstor (online article site)

*Invented Oddysees
*Guilty Pleasures
*The Rise of Fashion
*Sunone de Beavoir(?? dont know how to spell, ask her. think it was about women's gender, feminism)
*women's fashion by
*Victor and Rolf's fashion doll

email her to ask;
gender essay/irragaray

tutorial with Kelly

I had tutorial with Kelly today. I brought few of my story board but I forgot others like test shots, my research book or some photographer's images! I was so excited to see movie shot in front of my building, all these setting and crews. 
I am very clumsy. 

anyway, the tutorial was like job interview rather than just a conversation between student and teacher. I was really unprepared and there were many things I had to do it in 2weeks. 

*what kind of polaroid camera im using
*test shoots with polaroid camera
*images for location (Peckam cemetery, etc)
*what is the biggest file size in my camera
*more test shoots with degital
*take some pictures of outfit for photo shoot
*models (contact with agency)
*more vivid ideas for photo shoot (drawing, context, etc)
*printed proposal (i totally forgot to print it out, shit.......)

work hard weeks.

Market in bond street.

  oh, I forgot to mention this. I went to Bond street for Christmas shopping with my boy friend and I saw this little market in middle of the street! it's like little vintage shops selling sweets, foods, bugs, accessories, and other stuff. just across M&S in bond street and you will find it. it close at 8;30pm.
I bought lots of fudge (whisky, baileys, ram raison flavours) and aroma bath thingy...(you put it in bath tub) for me and his mother. smells gooooooooooooood :)
 I bought German sausage hot dog and the sausage was longer than actual bread!!! O_O


i had test shoot with my friend on last friday. I totally screwed up. I haven't really taken many fashion images and im losing my confident or.... thinking I shouldn't be a photographer...! well.... I really need to get more practice and skill....its just sooo hard for me :S

there will be shooting a movie called 'King's Speech' today(it's almost 2am) right front of my flat building. There will be Colin Firth, Geoffry Rush, Helen Bow.....something...
I am going to wake up early to see the shot. hopefully, I will get to see it :)

Candace Mayer

inspirational photographer :) i like the lighting system

im so confused :S

okay, I am really stuck with my dissertation. 
I prsented it a week before about my princess research. Basically I started my research with Japanese Goth/Lolita fashion, Rococo/Baruque age influence. Then relationship between loyalty and doll. Then moved to Princess Diana for modern princess fashion and.....Lula magazine as case study. I thought my research was smooth to follow but tutors said I should choose between child or princess for my essay. They also said it was also because I put Lolita fashion, my ideas were scattering to everywhere like Lolita fashion is not connecting to princess fashion. 
I read books and Japanese Lolita fashion is different from the impression of western Lolita idea and these two has nothing to do eachother (I don't even know why Japanese call these princess/doll fashion as 'Lolita' ). 
Fundamentally, I really want to write about these japanese dolly fashion. Kelly said I can't just write about it and I am very very confused now.... :( 

ah... I watched 'Lolita' as Itai suggested me to watch to understand the meaning of Lolita. The movie was about old man's desire towards a young girl and the movie actually made me unconfortable. It was a good film but I didn't think I want to write about it. 

I really will be appreciated if any of you can help me with little tips or suggestions. 

Thank youuuu.

meeting with stylist/make up artist for my final major project

I met my stylist and make up artist yesterday. Well i met them in different time because I never met the stylist before and I'd like to spend time individual time with her to know her better. From my previous final major presentation feed back, all the teachers seemed to like it and I got good feed back but they also told me that I better have good stylist to accomplish my goal. I already have one of my designer/stylist who is my friend and we had couple of shoots together and I, myself really like styling up the clothes.Nevertheless, thought it would be more serious and better to get 'real' stylist. Anyway, we met at Davis Street and I showed her my power point presentation. I was glad that she was interested in Japanese Culture and she knew a lot of Japanese culture so it wasn't hard for me to explain her about Gothic/Lolita cosplay. She was eager about the project and very very experienced. We both agreed to take a shoot next year and till then, plan about the outfit and confirmed to keep in touch constantly. I am so happy that I found the funny, friendly, knowledgeable and lovely stylist :) hoping to collaborate with my designer friend and her, and we all have fun <3 

I think.... to keep in touch with the team is good. I met my make up artist just to catch up with her and we had a nice coffee time at star bucks. It was good to share the personal problem and talk about what we like to shoot next time. We can share our opinion and do understand each other. I am very happy to keep that relationship with her. She was having problem like she wanted to have proper make up sites for her and we were talking about how hard to approach ourselves to clients or agency. Mark's class was really helpful as I told her to spend quality time to create blog and website. So then she can focus on her signature style more and let people know about her. 

oh oh, i watched 2012.... thought it would be same as others like Independent days or Day After Tomorrow.But it was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good. it makes me want call my parents right after i watch the movie.

''she said''

sweet song from Kamikaze girls-''She said'' by Rin Oikawa.

shimotsuma monogatari -Kamikaze girls-

I watch the Japanese Japanese movie, Shimotsuma monogatari. Its basically about Japanese fashion, sub culture and two girls' friendship. (thank you Karin for reminding me to watch it :)
I think I watch it for 3-4times already but it is brilliant. I don't get bored of it and can fit myself into these girls' shoes like I found lots of similarities between then and me. I also love how Momoko(one of the character) indulge herself with BTSSB brands. Lolita Lolita Lolita fashion,,,, <3(again, it has nothing to do with Western meaning of Lolita. No paedophiles) 
I'd love to wear it one day without worrying about what others think.

anyway here is the trailer. check it out.

hikari sasu niwa -sunlit garden-

beautiful piano song.


wish i was different person
wish i was in the end of the world
wish i could start my life over
wish i didn't see any hideous part of the world
wish i didn't know the meaning of jealousy, sadness and anxiety
wish no one betrayed me 
wish no one lied to me

wish i could be myself to anyone and any places.
