Fashion District HAULLLL

LOL oh the haul from the LA Fashion District!

I've been planning this trip to the Fashion District for quite sometime now since I've needed quite a few things to pick up anyway but didnt want to spend abutt load in San Diego and figured I'd get more for my buck i the Fashion District and much much much more  choices when I go up there :D

so on my list to things to buy was:

1. Cheese Danishes LOLZ. You dont understand. Little Tokyo and Glendale has the best bakeries for these babies XDDDD
2. A new roller bag, small-medium size to replace my already falling apart duffel bag that I use to travel with me, I'm sick and tired of hauling it across parking lots of train stations and through air port terminals for short trips =3=!! I have a bigger suitcase but like I said, its...BIG D:<
3. Incense sticks. NEED. Grandma's house smells weird...../:

lolol now onto the purchasssess of the epic day at the LA Fashion District! but oh, fuck. First. Lemme tell you I was DISSAPPOINTED!! We got there around 9ish close to 10?  I think it was around 10am actually, and drove through the FD and nothing seemed to have been open yet /: so we went to Starbucks by the Staple Center to grab breakfast and kill timehoping things would start opening up by 11, coz normally tomy understanding the last few times Ive been there, everything was quite lively by 10.  Went back around close to 11 but still nothing, then drove to Little Tokyo and hanged out at the book store till noon to see if things got better. I looked at alot of Photobooks. I eventually want to publish a few photobooks :3 def one of my projects I'll be working on! >:D I'm excited. I wrote down alot of the names of the photobooks and I'll be hunting them all down via Amazon >:D

around noon finaly went back to the FD but bah, figured it was just a slow start....but nooo =3=ll ALOT of the places were actually closed! D': all the good fabric vendors were cloed that day /: saaaad but Santee Ally was still bustling as always....I just wish more places were open. but its ok, I got everything on my list that I needed. Minus the cheese danishes xD;;; but thats ok!

behold the new smaller-medium sized cute roller bag >:D I had every intention of getting a LEOPARD print one since I've seen them acouple times at the fasbion district with a matching carry on one BUT since alot of the places were close yesteday I ended up getting this one. Not bad. Its still cute and obnoixous. I definitely wanted to get something flashy so it stands out and I know its mine :3 even my other luggage is an obnoxious print by Nine West. This one also kinda reminds me of Betsey Johnson xD They had another version, that was hot pink with lime green dots. LOL not that was obnoxious, I was eyeing that one before this one because the pink x green one had a matching hand-bag that I'm sure the lady would have given to me for a discount as well. but Steven persuaded me to get this one coz the handle was better and true, I was starting to doubt on getting the other one since it might get  dirty quicker. The lady was nice and gave it to me for $20 flat >:D aweesommmeee I say.

incense sticks and a case for me to burn it in. I was hoping to get these at China Town since they had more variety in the scents and would come in a bigger bulk but we ran out of time and I just picked these up while in Little Tokyo. Next time I'm definitely going to grab the bigger boxes.

yessshhh I finally found it lOLOLOLO! I've been looking for these for so long and didnt wanna buy one off ebay xD coz I think its lol to get it from ebay just for 1 bandana XDDD I'm still llooking for the 'gas-mask' printed one /: hot topic use to carry them but I didnt wanna drop $12 for it =3= I might as well print my own at work. OH LOLZ. Stupid me, why didnt I just do that from the very beginning?! =3=lll
atleast this one cost me under $5......

Hello Kitty Mac makeup which I'm pretty sure is FAKE MAC. xD I dont really wear eye makeup alot outside of events, but the lady gave it to me for a cheaper price due to the crack on the pallete and I've been looking for a nice pallete with purples and pinks for the up-coming Sanrio 50th anniversary event. I need to get cracking on designs for that actually. The packaging suckered me into it XDD


FABRIC HAULLLL for the weeekeeennnd >:D I did NOT get enough of the red plaid since there was only a yard left in the spool =3=ll and I couldnt find more at the rest of the district. At the bottom is a purple pinstripe fabric >:D I bought a bunch of zippers to use for side pouches that I'll be working on @.@ and I also bought some STUDS! >:D and a few other trinket thingies to add onto the different designs I'm making for Black Heaven's line. :D excitedd but I'm sad that I didnt come back with as much fabric as I had intended to mostly coz alot of the places WERE CLOSED. FAIL! I need to go back before PMX so I can make more outfits for everything for PMX @.@;;

I noticed there were alot of Fashion Students and cosplayers too while at the fashion dstrict, everyone was hunting for fabrics! I wonder if everyones getting ready for PMX or something and Fashion Week/finals for all those Otis and FIDM students?XD it was interesting.
I also ran into Brian and Alex of Scarlet Antidote >:D and I'm pretty sure they were also gearing up for PMX hahaha. Fun!

my final and biggest purchase of the day was....dundundundun....

yes...a tiger kigurumi LOLZ. I plan on wearing it at night during PMX since I plan to do Taiga Aisaka from Tora Dora >D and at night when its time to chill, I'll switch to the Tiget Kigurumi lol and I'm also ready set for Halloween hahahaha. This was $40 at some store at Little Tokyo, pretty cheap considering everything else is $60-80 online, but I know I've seen this brand at AX selling for roughly 40 as not bad. Really. :D

We had planned on going to JapanLA and China town but we all just got too tired already and decided to call it a day XD;;
it was fun nonetheless. Got home around 7ish or 8ish? I was sooo tired from not having slept alot the last couple weeks but I pushed through and went over to my brothers to play some HALO REACH >D hahahaha then clearly passed out and woke up this morning, went home to change and get ready for my hair appointment to get my roots redone. lolz. Roots are still kinda yellow-orangeish, this is already after being bleached twice. I got a hair treatment for free. Will rock the roots for a bit because I cannot be arsed to throw ash ontop of them so soon xD.
Now time to figure out an outfit for the X Japan concert this weekend @.@ hoooshiit.
