Style: Ombre Hair & Fake Leather Skirt

Sweater: Thrifted, H&M // Skirt: eBay // Belt: Forever21 // Leggings: Thrifted // Bangs: Damnation Hair 
It's only been four months and I've changed my hair color FIVE times. Why is it impossible to stop? I actually would love to do a red & blonde ombre but I'm steering clear of bleach for as long as possible.  I had a nearly full bottle of blue dye leftover so this is my temporary ombre! I'm hoping this settles my impulsiveness haha.

I have wanted a skirt like this for months but only at the right price.  I thought I could probably find one for under ten bucks.... AND IT HAPPENED!! Now I just need a fake leather jacket.  Busty ladies can wear those, right? That's what is stopping me from getting one.

Happy Thursday  ♥


How to: Photograph Amigurumi & Edit in Photoshop

 You will need white paper and natural light preferably near a window. :)

I placed paper down on my bed and stacked a couple of sheets against the wall then put the amigurumi in place. I took these photos around noon when the sun hits my window. I am using a 50mm lens at low f-stop and low ISO since it was bright.  Bump up the ISO depending on your lighting condition.

If you have a continuous mode, use it!

Canon 7D & 50mm 1.4.
Settings: f/2, 1/80, ISO 100


1)    Crop out any distracting edges. If you have any lines you can select the brush tool & hold down CTRL to sample a color to paint over. That doesn't need to be perfect since we'll be brightening up the background next.

2)    Merge down. Duplicate your layer. Go to Image> Adjustments> Brightness/Contrast and bump up the Brightness 50+. There we go!   If your amigurumi is too bright, select a layer mask and use a black brush to paint it back.

3)    If you feel that your amigurumi is too dark now, you can select a white brush and adjust the brush opacity settings to around 50%. Paint over your amigurumi to brighten it up.

OPTIONAL: Sharpening your image.

1)    Go to Filter> Sharpen> Unsharp Mask and find the settings to fit your image.

Now it's complete! I save the high resolutions then afterwards resize at 700px as png's for posting on the web.

Before & After Comparison:

How to remove those random fuzzies or hair for close-ups:

1)    Duplicate your layer. Select the healing brush tool at a small size. Select a nearby area by holding down CTRL and clicking.

2)    Paint over it! Usually, this works. Sometimes you'll need to use the clone stamp tool.

That's it!

You don't need a super expensive camera to do this. ♥ Just white space and good lighting.

Style: Blue Galaxy

Wig: eBay // Dress: Forever21 // Leggings: GoWithGalaxy // Boots: Doc Martens // Plugs: Plug Club

My newest addition to my slowly growing wig collection. It's shiny but it doesn't matter to me. I missed blue hair and this is so perfect! I'm in love with this color and how soft it is. I thought I couldn't get away with fooling people with this one but it had worked. 

I never thought of using a foam board as a backdrop. Might be fun to do a couple of lookbook style shoots this way. These are test shoots. I'm surprised how bright these came out to be in such a dim room! I finally ordered a wireless remote the other day. Don't know what took me so long! I'm hoping it arrives this month.

Eevee decided to sit model with me in a couple of shots. Such a cute calm puppy.. for once!
