The JOKER Makeup Tutorial (EASY!)

 So, my first ever makeup tutorial happens to be my first time celebrating Halloween, heheh..
Well, actually not "celebrating" per se because I didn't go to any Halloween party, but for me, who has never done something Halloween-ny (I just don't like to participate in most things), doing this kind of makeup is kinda is! :"D

Watch the video ↑ to see the step-by-step tutorial and how easy it is! All the products I used are in the description box of the video.

My favourite part of this makeup: The Joker's scars!
 Ok, here's my costume!!! Hahahha so lame I know, but I just couldn't find a green vest and purple suit in such short time! #poorplanning

So instead, I went for this much easier and more convenient outfit. I thought I could just put on my white lab coat from my school days:
The late Heath Ledger as the Joker in 2008's "The Dark Knight".
But turns out my lab coat went missing! Been forever in my closet but the second I needed it, it's gone. Classic. So I ended up borrowing my cousin's who goes to the same school as me! Thank you, Yin/Thien!  
My full costume! ps. I wore white shorts underneath.
I decided to cover up the school logo with my 'Dent' name tag which I bought from Gramedia Book Store for about IDR 10,000 only! 
In case you didn't know, this Halloween getup is actually a collaboration with Stella Lee! And just like our first collab (Christmas collab in 2013), this was also an impromptu session ^^
 Too bad Jess got work to do, so she couldn't join us this time! boohoo.
 Go to Stella's blog to see her makeup tutorial! Eh, she's currently in Japan though, so I guess she will post it when she's back in town. :)
#OOTD ヽ(;▽;)ノ
Last snaps!!
What is Joker without bright and playful colours? ;)
Forget purple suit, I had purple nails!
Going to end this post with my favourite quote from Joker:

Happy belated Halloween everyone and I hope I put a "smile" on your face with my tutorial video! :D

Christmas 2013 in Akihabara

Hello, Mr. Hot Dog! Anwyay, yes, Christmas means red + green outfit. ^^v
Scrolled through my last Japan trip photos and decided to make a blog post out of 'em. No thanks to Stella for making me miss Japan so much right now. (˘̩̩ᴗ˘̩̩ƪ) Anyway, there are too many pictures so I'll just blog about this particular event first: December 25 a.k.a. My 2013's Christmas Day in Akihabara! Nothing special, really, we just strolled around the busy street, ate and shopped hehe.

The day started with us taking train to Akihabara and mommy stopped for something sweet:
 …other than herself, of course.
Oishii, oka-san? Lol, she really is a food lover! It was something made with Taro (purple sweet potato)? I forgot.

Yes, it's the famous AKB48 Café & Shop, right outside JR Akihabara Station!

Sushi Lunch

There's this tiny Sushi Shop right next to the AKB48 Cafe, here precisely (right outside the JR Akihabara Station's Electric Town exit and just next to Beck's Coffee Shop). It seemed perfect to satisfy our growling tummy and apparently, the prices were cheap, too!

Mom's making a quick count already, look at her hand lol.

Ama Ebi + Kani Nigiri Sushis = NOM NOM!

Done with lunch, back to the freezing street! brrrrr~~~

Street Strolling

Bf spotted a "cool car" which... I don't really get why.

CCTV Selfie

Continuing our journey in Akihabara, we went in and out some toy stores around this area.
There are SO MANY cute things there and I wanted to explore more but mom seemed genuinely uninterested (although she did buy something for my brother) lol, so off we went!

Ehhhhhh, it's dark already! T_T I blame the three of us who woke up late. XD
Anyway, look at how beautiful those trees are! The leaves were turning yellow when we were there.
So grateful to be able to watch it with mom!

Late Night Dinner

After shopping and eating around (it was ALWAYS mealtime whenever I'm around these two people, my mom and my bf lol), it was 11 by night so we decided to fill our tummy the last time(?) for that night at this place THE ROSE & CROWN - VICTORIAN PUB - ダイナック, which is located right across the Sushi place that we visited for lunch.

Merry Christmas!

After a while, it was 12 past midnight and it means… HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! X"D


Apparently, they each bought some gifts and chocolates *secretly* when we were shopping around. :')

Thank you, mom and beb! ♡♡♡

Midnight Stroll

Stopped by a minimarket before going back to the hotel.
Japanese Häagen-Dazs has super duper exotic flavors and these are just some of them!!!
L-R: Apple Pie, Rum Raisin, Royal Cassis Milk, Murasaki Imo, Pumpkin

My minimarket selfie was always ruined by these guys crowding in lol.

Mom wanted to take picture with this gorgeous Christmas tree on our hotel lobby before we're going up. 

Okay then, thanks a lot for reading and see you guys on my next post! ˆ)づ♡
