Personal Outfit (Cloth Shopping & Play Watching)

Was out on Saturday buying cloth for an upcoming cosplay that I'll be debuting during Cosfest. My friend, Kosmo, kindly showed me around Arab street and the Textile Centre as I'm not really familiar with the place, I tend to stick to Chinatown for my cloth buying needs.

Wore this comfy outfit there as I expected and did alot of walking around:

Purple hair tie: Can't remember
Lace dress: Cotton On
Purple Cardigan: Cotton On:
Grimoire Verum-inspired Butterfly print stockings: Taobao
Creepers: Taobao
Badge pin: Katie (forgot to take a closer pic, will do so next time)

Slightly better look at the stocking print. My creepers are insanely comfy, they're now my new fashionable walking shoes 

Carried my new winged backpack, good thing too because it was extremely useful instuffing in my buys, I actually filled it to the brim!

Makeup that day, wore Dollywink No.2 lashes, no lower lashes, Canmake pink cream blush with Candydoll blush over it, highlighter, nose contour and slightly more pink lip colour. Didn't use bronzer though since I noticed most Cult Party girls don't contour much and actually prefer the rounder, more baby-faced look.

My buys for the day were lots of satin, cotton, chiffon, 3 different kinds of lace, 2 different bias tape and one roll of ribbon. Cost me close to $100, my wallet is cyring so bad right now. Anyone wanna guess which character I'm cosing?
Met my mom and sis for dinner, we ate at my favourite Ramen Champion and I had one of my favourite options, the amazing Bario Ramen. So sinful with the rich pork broth but sooooo yummy!!!

After dinner, we window-shopped abit before heading the the Drama Centre to watch:

The Importance of Being Earnest! Play written by one of my favourite writers, Oscar Wilde!!! The original flamboyant dandy and this play clearly reflected his personality and wit so well.

The play was so so good!!!! I was gripping my sides from laughing at nearly every single line and the actors were wonderful in their renditions of the characters. It was so witty and had plenty of satire, I just couldn't help but to laugh aloud. I also have to applaud the director's choice in having an all male cast for this play and none, not even the the "female" characters were cross-dressing during the duration of the play. The cast all wore Victorian-era styled suits in a simple setting with minimal props, but I could still witness the chemistry the actors had together and they were so convincing as lovers. Despite the more modern take on the casting, the use of a string quartet during and in between scenes helped to remind the audience that this was written in an era of classical music and rich excesses. I really applaud the entire cast and crew for such a wonderful show and how it's helped to take a leap forward for the LGBT community.


  1. Love the outfit, especially the cardigan, and the butterfly tights are too cute~ I'm really not good at guessing, but I'm excited to see what your cosplay will be! I'm doing my first real cosplay myself this summer at Anime Expo, so I'm excited about that too. ^ ^

    Thanks for sharing~

    1. Haha, thanks. Oh! I hope your first cosplay will go well and that you'll enjoy the experience
