I know, it’s been a while since my last entry and I feel kind of guilty but here I am! I hope you all had a magnificent New Year’s Eve with your family or friends and beloved ones. I spent the evening with Silvankun, my closest friend, her boyfriend and many other people I didn’t really know. The party was semiprivate and the location stunning! Hahaha I’m sure you’re thinking of something completely different so let me explain it a little better. A part of the location was a cute greenhouse made of glass with colorful bulbs that diffused a funky light and special atmosphere. Not what you were expecting eh? Anyway, I was about to dress up with high heels & black lace when my friend told me that the event was rather familiar and comfy and honestly I felt kind of relieved.
The people were really nice, there were many fireworks and we had a great and most of all, funny time. How did you spend your New Year’s Eve? Did you make any New Year’s resolutions?
Mine are quite simple, study more, exercise and learn how to moderate my gaming urge. Yes, you read correctly, since Silvankun got an iPad as a Christmas gift we spent hours gaming Tiny Tower, Mistery Mansion, MewMew Tower and other games. This is also the reason why I’ve been neglecting my blog and other things… but it’s sooo addicting!
We both look so silly in this picture but somehow I like it
A few days ago an acquaintance of mine uploaded some pictures of a cute little castle located about a 30 minutes car ride from Zurich. I was so amazed that the next day I decided to visit it. There are many ancient castles, ruins and fortifications in Switzerland but I had never seen such an architecture here so I was really eager to visit it. Some people think it looks a tiny little bit like the Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany and although the Wart castle in Switzerland is much smaller and less impressive I can see a modest resemblance. Anyway, when I first saw the pictures of it I immediately thought about it as the perfect place for a Lolita meeting and shooting. Unfortunately the castle isn’t publicly accessible but since the owners seemed to be on holiday we dared to take a peek.
I really tried to dress up like some kind of classical Lolita but it didn’t turn out lolitesque enough I think..rather preppy? When we arrived the weather was freezing and there was nobody there so we wandered around in the park and Silvankun took some pictures of me. Since it was so cold I couldn’t stand taking many pictures without my lovely new coat so the outfit isn’t really visible on every picture but it’s enough to get an impression of it I think.
To follow ねこちゃん to the castle, read on!
Aren’t the houses beautiful? This isn’t the actual castle but the surrounding buildings.. maybe they were thought for the personnel? As you can see it was cloudy and a little foggy that day so the pictures have this very cold light but later on we catched some sunbeams.
hahaha I’m sorry for my very sceptical facial expression.. I’m rather untalented when it comes to posing.
I thought the white lacy umbrella would give the whole the ultimate Lolita look but I was wrong.. It takes far more to create a real Lolita look! Next time I’ll try to do better..
I hope you enjoyed looking at the pictures!
