Pumpkin Cat Kitten Matryoshka Dolls JSK and LolitaWardrobe.com review ✨
I mentioned a while ago that I preordered Kitten Matryoshka Dolls Jumperskirt on LolitaWardrobe as a birthday gift from my boyfriend. I got it in Ivory colorway and M size.

LolitaWardrobe is a Taobao reseller. I follow them on Facebook, so I saw this preorder there. Generally it is more worthwhile to buy from Taobao using a shopping service, but I came across it there, got excited there's a possibility to get it and didn't think of checking other places.

I placed the order on 17.02. I must admit their service is pretty good. I made two bookings by mistake, paid for the one I wanted and wasn't able to cancel the other one. I asked about it through Facebook and got answered almost immediately and the wrong booking was cancelled without asking any further questions.

The page said the dress is going to be ready in early or middle of May. I chose the cheapest shipping option as there was no rush in receiving it. It was supposed to be my birthday present, which is in late June, so I didn't worry about not getting it on time.

On 24.04 I was informed my item is shipped! It was ready sooner than expected ♥ My postman delievered it to me yesterday - 16.05. So it took a little over three weeks to reach me.

I was so excited! As you can see it was packed okay - no bubble wrap or anything, but it was secure.

The fabric was rather thin, but soft. The page says it is made of 120D high density slubbed linen - whatever that is - besides that this is linen. I didn't know linen could be so soft. I have to find out how to iron it. Anyway it feels really light, which is going to be perfect for summer.

The print is what I fell in love with. I'm not really sure about the fabric that waistbelt and detachable bow is made of. It feels kind of plastic because of the silver print. 

Lace is made of cotton and has a cute bow design.

I love the design of the collar and little paws all over.

This is how its back looks. It has shirring and lacing.

The jsk is fully lined. Lining is made of polyester. I must admit I would be happier with cotton one.

Also what I noticed today! It has a pocket right to the zipper - the site said it wouldn't have one. I'm happy to discover such nice unexpected things :)

This is how it looks tried on. Sadly I'm not allowed to wear it until my birthday! 

Overall I'm very happy with the purchase. The print is lovely and has a unique style. I also love how versatile this dress is - it can be worn both casually and more fancy depending on a coordinate.


Pyrkon 2017

Pyrkon 2017
There are a few conventions held in Poland, but Pyrkon in PoznaΕ„ is definitely the biggest one. This year there were about 50k participants! It was my third time attending.

It started on  Friday 27.04 and lasted till Sunday 30.04. My and my boyfriend arrived on Thursday, because I wanted to see PoznaΕ„ itself. I visited two times before and didn't really have the chance to see anything besides the convention. 

PoznaΕ„ has lovely old town - although my heart stays with home city GdaΕ„sk! I really dig old architecture. 

We were also checking out some cool backgrounds for taking photos. 

I had three outfits prepared. The weather was kind of bad, so I decided to switch my Sunday's outfit with Friday one. 

So this is how I looked on day 1 ♥

My friend and her boyfriend were rocking Slytherin students cosplay:

Some details:

I met a cute Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon:

These cosplayers looked so cool:

I also went some shopping:

I bought a wallet, because my old one was basically useless. I love Ghibli, so this one was perfect :) As for the manga I bought, I'm a big fan of Junji Ito's work. I like horror stories in all forms. This author has a unique style and good ideas. I like how his drawings are very graphic sometimes, but the scary part is always the story. He can make ordinary things creepy.

I spent the first day mostly by walking here and there, hanging out with friends, taking photos and checking out cosplayers. I didn't register for any lectures, because they wouldn't work for me anyway. I spent so much time doing "nothing", I wouldn't be able to attend anything. That's how I usually spend cons :P

On to day 2! I wanted Saturday's coord to be the most over the top (although it is still pretty far from ott coords you can see made by others). I even bought fake nails to match my dress, but I cut my fingernail with a razor by accident the day before :( Well, bad luck.

Awesome Leshy:

Och no, lolita gone bad:

Wearing a wig whole day was so tiring! I admire everyone who wears wigs daily.

We attended Alternative Fashion Show and Cosplay competition.

Fashion show was a bit disappointing... Last year it was way better. I could see some corgeous designs by every artist. Gothic, steampunk, lolita and much more. And this year it was so casual. They were presenting t-shirts and leggins mostly. While they were cool and all, they didn't fit a runway show.

But Cosplay competition was so good! Standards of costumes were pretty high and performances were fun. I really enjoyed myself. I think my favourite was the Witcher and Leshy fight.

On the third day I woke up with my feet so sore, the weather was still bad, so... I decided not to dress up. I think I'm going to wear the last outfit some other time.

Sunday went by some more walking, shopping and hanging out.

I hope next year will be even more awesome! ♥
