Wonderland Guro Outfit Planning and Art

As I said in my previous outfit planning post, this year's Tea Party Club event is "Dream Masquerade Carnival", and will be featuring Angelic Pretty. And I'm going this year!

I only have three main AP pieces; Candy Treat, Holy Lantern and Wonder Queen.

This time, I went for something darker using Wonder Queen. Honestly, I would never have thought to try a guro look with this dress if my friend Uri hadn't suggested it :D

Like last time, I started by doing a quick drawing of what I wanted to outfit to look like.

My main theme here was "chopping heads". Thats why I went for the blood-drip choker and hatchet handbag. I also wanted to re-use the sceptre I bought to go with this dress when I wore it back in 2014. 

Outfit Rundown:
OP: Angelic Pretty
Blood Choker: Claires
Anatomical Heart Cameo: Etsy
Sceptre: Offbrand
Socks: Sourpuss
Boots: Queen Bee

This is my favourite of the outfits I've planned so far!
What do you think?

Angelic Pretty Guro Kawaii Outfit Planning and Art

This year's Tea Party Club event is "Dream Masquerade Carnival", and will be featuring Angelic Pretty. 
I've never been to one of the big lolita events before, despite being in the fashion just over ten years
Somewhat impulsively, I decided I wanted to go this time. I got my ticket, and all that's left to do now is plan outfits.

I only have three main Angelic Pretty dresses, Holy Lantern, Wodner Queen and Candy Treat. Since it's an AP event, it makes sense to wear AP. 

Before laying out my clothes, I decided to draw a rough idea of what I wanted the outfit to look like.

Candy Treat is the oldest AP dress I own, and I first wore it to MCM Glasgow in 2013.

The cream with red gave it a guro look to me, and that's always been my favourite substyle.

This outfit is basically a re-hash of one I laid out last summer here: "Keep Out Of Reach Of Children"

Like in 2013, I put my apron over the top of it, and included the cross patch.

Like last summer, I put the Zettai Ryouiki pill print thigh-highs with it.

I put in the blood blag glasses chain, and rainbow pills ear cuff from my guro MCM outfit from last year too.

I added a madonna crown made from syringes, which is an acessory i've had in the works for little while.

Outfit Rundown:
JSK: Angelic Pretty
Blouse: Angelic Pretty
Apron: Heart E
Stockings: Zettai Ryouiki
Pill Ear Cuff, Syringe Necklace and Syringe Crown: Handmade

There's still plenty of time to plan outfits and come up with something.
I'm really excited about the event!
