Guide to Pompeii, Sorrento and Firenze

This Guide is fro Pompeii, Sorrento and Florence of our Italy trip. We spent most of our time in Rome during our Italy trip, but still had a chance to see other cities!


At our fourth day of our Italy trip , we’ve decided to go and visit Pompeii. Pompeii is an ancient city, located near Napoli. After Mount Vesuvio goes boom boom city is destroyed and buried under ashes.

Going to Napoli from Rome takes about two hours with train. After that you take your train to the Pompeii. These trains are run buy another company (Circumvesuviana), you take your train to Sorrento and your stop is Pompei Scavi. I would like to remind you that train is very very old , but it doesn’t take long to reach Pompeii.

So, before I tell you about to Pompeii, I have to say this. really wasn’t satisfied with it. Even though we visited in April, it was quite hot (never ever visit it without hats or umbrellas) and without proper guidance you don’t understand much and hard to enjoy it without knowing much about the city. So, if you’re planning to visit Pompeii, Learn your shit and bring an umbrella.

So, I’m adding random photos because I still don’t know much about Pompeii.





no, not the babies :(


That reminds me of that I haven’t seen the Atlas statue.


I don’t know what it is but looked amazing. Yay, marble!


light sucks but that thing was suberb


infamous faun




Tirrivirri is the master of posing


I am not.

Seriously, I’m just adding random photos.


amphitheatre. we were almost dead when we reached here.




I seriously don’t know what it is but it looked really cool
We couldn’t even finish visiting the whole city. We were pretty tired and hungry. We could’ve went back to Napoli but decided to be adventurous and visit Sorrento!


Go reach Sorrento, you use the same train you took to come Pompeii. I can’t remember it clearly but I think it took about another 20 minutes.

Sorrento is a little lovely town with the great view. We weren’t expecting this much when we arrived. After a small walk from the train station, we’ve decided to eat at a restaurant.


This restaurant has the best tomato soup in the world, I guarantee it! Steak was mediocre but I still can’t forget that soup.


view is breathtaking.


Water looked super nice too but it was cold :(

After seeing this view, you know that you did the right thing! It’s amazing from the hill. If you want to go to the sea level, you can use the lift, or walk just like we did.

Anyways, when we reach the water, we had to put our foot in it. It was inevitable.

And ofcourse gifs :3

Protip: if you are planning to visit these places, don’t forget to eat pizza at Napoli. We ate it somewhere close to the train station but it was still delicious.

Protip 2: If you have time, visit Capri island. There are ferries from Napoli and Sorrento and heard it was a great place. Unfortunately, we didn’t have much time.


When I decided to visit Rome I was super excited about it, When we were chatting with my dad I was like “gonna see the renaissance stuff, woohooo” and he actually broke my heart by telling me that renaissance was actually born at Florence (Firenze in Italian) . So, when Tirrivirri added Firenze to our travel, it was amazing.

Travelling to Firenze by train from Rome takes about 4 hours, without the high-speed rail. But high speed is also high-expensive and we’re broke, so we took the regular train. Considering we were going to spend 8 hours at train, we didn’t have much time in Firenze (I WISH WE HAD) Tirrivirri insisted that I should see Uffizi and Accademia Gallery.



Tirrivirri visited Firenze before, so we splitted, while she was wandering at Boboli Gardens, I went to Uffizi. At first I’ve tried to take photos of every statue and painting, but then it hit me, it would take couple of days to finish the whole gallery. So, I’m sharing couple of things here, instead of spamming everything.


Hercules and Nessus


Laocoön and His Sons


This is where you learn fire bending


what are you doing to those babies mate??





This lady has a dick. wait, this guy has bewbs.


Even Madonna is tired “Madonna and the child” paintings, just sayin.


Holy Family by Michelangelo. I’m so happy that I saw it from so close!

I was goofin around in Uffizi, ofcourse respecting big masters but also having fun.

Then Boticelli hit my face.



I don’t know much about art. I really don’t. but even if you are as stupid as me, you can feel it. His style is simply amazing. Rooms were full of his works (there were about 30 of his paintings)


You can almost feel her sadness.



one fo my favourite paintings, Pallas and the Centaur



I’m going to be honest with you. This thing is amazing. This Venus can be the woman of your dreams. Boticelli simply steals your soul with this artwork.


Baptism of the Crist





I took a short break with the great view of Firenze. I wasn’t expecting to see so many things at the lower floor *heavy breathing*


Draw me like Titian.


Raphael’s Madonna of the Goldfinch


Raphael’s self portrait. Boy, do I want to marry this man..


Caravaggio’s Medusa


Portrait of Eleanor of Toledo

There were also a Bizarre paints exhibition with wonderful paintings but they didn’t let me take photos.


is it tho?

After Uffizi, I was flying over the clouds. I’ve ran into Tirrivirri outside and went to Accademia this time. After all the paintings and sculptures I’ve seen at Uffizi I wasn’t quite ready for David, not yet.

(sorry for photos, they look normal when you click on them)


I’m not allowed to touch busts but sculptures are? outrageous!!


Tirrivirri looks concerned


Pontormo’s Venus and Cupid


Unfinished statue by Michelangelo, usually called Slave or prisoner


Rape of the Sabines

Accademia is a lot smaller compared to the Uffizi. I kept dragging Tirrivirri around because I wasn’t really ready to see David.



But then I saw him.








I’m not going to lie. Trip to Florance changed my whole perspective about art. After this trip, I’ve visited many museums in France, Germany, Norway, Serbia etc. to see other masterpieces. It leaves you with an unexplainable feeling, sits in your stomach. You feel like you can’t appreciate this enough. :/



We had fun. This was the time that I realised I could LOVE art.

Quick Guide to Seoul


This is my quick guide to Seoul. It was my first trip to abroad, I was super excited about everything, and to be perfectly honest, I can’t remember everything and don’t have many photos but I’ll try to tell you about my experience in general.


First of all, must-see, must-do things, recommendations, etc.

  • Public Transportation: It’s super easy to travel in Seul, with subway. You have t buy t-money card and put credits in it, it’s available almost everywhere. Also, there is a transportation app which shows you the shortest way to your destination. Signs are both in English and Korean (or Chinese/japanese in some places, not quite sure) so it’s really, really easy to get lost, unless you’re a relative of Roronoa Zoro.



  • Food: How should I explain this.. Food was both positive and negative side for this country (for me) Korean BBQ is the most delicious thing I’ve ever eaten (sorry mama) and it was quite cheap. But since I don’t eat pork, it was hard to find food for me, sometimes. But when I did, and when it was BBQ IT WAS HEAVEN. For pricing, let me tell you this. At our first night, we went our for dinner. As 5 hungry tourists, we digged BBQ, went full in no time without bread (with only meat) guys also drank Soju, beer etc. and check was about 100.000 won (about $100 ) I wasn’t quite satisfied with fast food restaurants (tacobell, mcdonalds etc) but traditional food was quite delicious.

DSC_1056 IMG_2530

  • Shopping : I haven’t been to many shopping trips before Seoul, so I can’t compare, but  think I can say that Seoul was amazing about shopping and satisfied me :3 City is amazing if you are looking of electronic gadgets, make-up supplies, contact lenses or clothes. If you are willing to buy cosplay supplies (fabrics etc) you will be pleased. I’ve also bought toys, anime figure, manga etc.

DSC_1006 DSC_1004

  • Culture: to be perfectly honest, I didn’t have enough time to fully understand Korean culture, but what I saw was amazing.


  • Esports and games: Korea is kinda the capital of eSports. I’ve been to Worlds finals in 2014 and it was amazing. Also visiting PC bangs (pc cafes) could be a different experience for you if you are not used to it. Also, cosplayers are amazing, you can see Spiral Cats Team and other amazing cosplayers at eSports events.

10690112_890193244358898_2161887146374793582_n 20141019_163211

  • Seoul is a big city, but don’t be afraid to get around. Even if you are lost or late, taking a taxi won’t cost you much, so, don’t worry.

So, there are also negative sides, unfortunately;


  • Food: Like I said before, finding halal food was kinda hard to find sometimes. There were food shops but going to the other side of the world and eating Turkish food didn’t seem fair to me :(


  • Language: If you know what you are doing you probably won’t have any problems. Koreans at shops etc. know a little English and it’s not that hard to talk if what you are asking for is simple. But if you don’t know where to go to find spesific items it can’t be hard if you don’t know their language. Since I’ve travelled with people who had spent so much time on Internet to visit right places, I didn’t have any trouble.

Pro tip 1: Don’t give tips. It’s offensive in Korean culture. Try to be nice.

Pro tip 2: Pocket wifi will save you. You can rent it at airport

Pro tip 3: Download Seould transportation app, it will help you  A LOT! Also get a T-money!

So, now tons of photos and places to see :3


So first day, we went to see the Ghibli exhibition. It was in a shopping mall (I-Park Mall ) And it was amazing. It was probably temporary but it’s still purrfect. If you can’t afford a visit to the Ghibli Museum in Japan, just hunt for this exhibition, maybe it will visit somewhere near to you.


20141017_153802 20141017_135323 20141017_133942  IMG_2437 IMG_2471

Also, Korean Folk Village (KFV) is one of the must-visit places. It has an amazing atmosphere ! You can also see traditional Korean stuff. If you have no time for museums (or you don’t feel like it) this can be your place! It’s quite refreshing.


DSC_1055 DSC_1017

Gangnam is kinda over rated if you ask me. But it’s fun to dance at Gangnam style platform, which had lights and a huge Gangnam style sign and it plays the song when you press the button. Don’t be ashamed, we know that you’ve listened to the song. It was the guilty pleasure of 2012 anyway :)I


Itaewon (was way much better. It’s where young poeple hang out. We went Itaewon twice, there are tons of places to eat, drink and go shopping!

Myeongdong is another place and it’s pretty good for shopping, I’ve got most of my make-up stuff from there.

Like I said before, it was my very first trip to abroad so I don’t have much photos, or notes from the trip. :( So I’ll be finishing this “guide” with photo dump. peace out!

Belgrade Guide

We had a quick visit to Belgrade, Serbia last week with Tirrivirri (wooohooo!)

First of all, It was our first trip together since we got Cookie, and we left her at a pet hotel at Istanbul and she had great time.(If you’re looking for a pet hotel in Istanbul, poke me)


  • Plane tickets to Belgrade were super cheap from Turkey. I don’t know about the other countries, maybe it was cheap because it’s close, either way it was good.


  • It was also my very first hostel experience, Tirrivirri stayed at many different hostels while she was backpacking through Europe but I’ve always stayed at hotels and airbnb before. If you’re planning to visit Belgrade, Good Morning Hostel is strongly recommended, It’s a little bit far from the city center but it’s cheap, clean and comfy.
  • So, generally, Belgrade trip was quite good. Everything in this city is extremely cheap! So Belgrade is a good choice if you’re travelling in budget!
  • Our trip was only for three days and we thought it might not be enough but Belgrade is not a big city and 3 days of time is pretty good. I’m assuming you might want to spend more time if it’s summer.
  • As far as I could see, no one pays for public transportation in Belgrade. We didn’t want to get into trouble and asked for tickets to many places but we couldn’t find any.Jpeg
  • FOOD.IS.AMAZING!!! Of course everyone has different taste about local food. I coulnd’t taste some of the meals and drinks but things I’ve eaten were amazing. I gained couple of pounds, but totally worth it. For breakfast, I suggest  bakery’s (pekara in Serbian) our favourite was Toma.
  • Jpeg

Aaand Tirrivirri looks like a squirrel when she’s having breakfast.

  • Whole city felt like 90’s <3 And it’s definitely not a bad thing, it felt nostalgic actually :<


Serbia does not want Schengen or any other visa when you are visiting from Turkey. That’s probably the reason of the ridiculous amount of Turkish tourists :<


Belgrade has only one and small airport, named after Nikola Tesla. There aren’t many international flights from this airport so it’s very hard to get lost. You can take the busses 72 (to the city center) or A1 (express bus to little bit outside the city) and it takes about 30-40 minutes.

We had a quick tour at the city, and had our first meal, Goulash! Its actually a Hungarian meal, but eh, Balkans <3 we also had Shopska salad, it was the most delicious salad I’ve ever eaten <3


Also we’ve seen this at the diner. Yes, it was used to remove kebab..


Passed by Hotel Moscow…


Tirrivirri is judging Vegans.. I mean, yeah they don’t meat and everything but it’s not a reason to shoo them :<


After a quick stop at hostel we went out! We wanted to see Kalemegdan, walked through the old city via Knez Mihailova Street..


and reached Kalemegdan!


We also had the chance to see the Pobednik (The Victor) It’s one of the most popular scenes of Belgrade and it’s almost peaceful to see him watching Sava and Danube.


We’ve also visited Church of Saint Mark. I’ve visited many Catholic churches before but not many Orthodox  churches (outside my country, obviously) Their style is completely different with so much gold and everything..




And the last thing. We went to the Dali Exhibition! It wasn’t in our plans, we saw it when we were walking through the Knez Mihailova Street, and  decided to go in.


I’ve never seen proper Dali works before. I have to tell you, is inspired me a lot. We saw some ofhis works focusing on death, heaven, hell and inspired by (and focuses on) Dante.


I’m sure that this inspired an Angel at Evangelion..


That awkward moment when your lips look like artwork (?!?!)


Also Giraffe Venus. OMG, I can’t actually find words to tell you how much I was impressed by this. Venus de Milo is my favourite sculpture of all times, and I think I don’t even need to tell you that how much I love Giraffes. This sculpture is on my list right nao. Someday, I’ll save enough money and buy the original. (better start saving then…



our first stop was National Museum.. and we were sooo excited!!


….aaaaand it was closed, due to restoration.. Their collection is one of the best ones I’ve ever heard, they had pretty much everything I would like to see (as far as I know it will be opened 3 months after.. well.. I have to go back obviously)


After this huge disappointment, we went to Nikola Tesla museum. You should know that they have a pretty modest collection of his belongings, and it’s quite small.



But tour with guide (after the quick video) was pretty amazing, and we had  chance to some of his projects, working (not the real ones of course)




There weren’t many information about the whole Edison vs Tesla thing, but guestbook was full of comments like that. Mostly in Turkish..

– would it be racism if I was talking about my very own people??-

Anywaayyss..  Then went to Church of St. Sava. They started building it in 1935, more than 80 years ago and inside of it wasn’t even finished yet. But have to tell you , it’s huge!



Then we fooled around in the park little bit.




And ended our night in the Skadarlija with a good meal. (cevapcici with kajmak and shopska salad. YUMS)



Seen couple of things from the city on our way back to hostel.







For our last day, we’ve decided to leave the old city a little bit. In the morning, we went to Zemun area , to see the Gardos tower.


We got lost (a little bit).. then we found it.



You can visit the top with a small fee and view is amazing.



Tower itself is pretty good too. Obviously, we had a photoshoot.




After this amazing morning, we went back to old city, then went to Ada Ciganlija. I’m sure this place is amazing at Summer but it was pretty good at this weather too!








This gif be the best thing I’ve ever recorded.  Sunset at Kalemegdan was suggested many times (didn’t have chance to see it) but I was very pleased to see this particular one.



For our last night, we went to Gradska restaurant for an amazing dinner. They do know how to cook meat you should try it. Rakija (their famous the drink) on the other hand, gace Tirrivirri  a hard time,  you’re awared !



This was our whole Belgrade trip. We had really good time. I definitely suggest this city, I’m going back some day anyway :3

More photos from the city;












Taking a small break.

As you might know, I had one hell of a year in 2015, made so many costumes and kept myself busy, like all the time.



Even after making more than 20 costumes, I was somehow not satisfied. Not single one of them felt like “That’s it, I made it and it looks good”. To be honest I rarely feel like it, but I felt like maybe I was being too perfectionist, maybe I’m doing good, but I’m not realising it.

At the end of 2015 I started making Sona, I try to make one big project each year, and started little bit early.

And It was exhausting. For couple of months I worked on Sona almost every night. I killed my social life, and spend so much money on it.

It was big, way too big for me. There were so many pieces and stuff that I couldn’t make a proper test drive before I wear it. So I didn’t know it was good or bad at all. Spent my nights, going in the dark, without knowing if I was going to the right direction.

In the end I failed HARD. Contest which I couldn’t even pass the pre-eliminaries was just one thing. More importantly, I didn’t feel like I made the right thing. I didn’t make enough planning, I didn’t use right patterns (most of the time I didn’t even use patterns at all) worked so much on lights and didn’t even have chance to  perform. and even if I did it, I wouldn’t be satisfied.

Cosplaying without self-satisfaction is meaningless.

Spending so much time and money (not quite sure about the amount but I’m assuming it’s more than €250 ) obviously made me feel horrible. I could’ve went out with my friends, spend more time with my dog, and I could definitely visit one country or two with that money.



Instead I have this. And I can’t really repair it, or make it better because of  techniques I’ve used.

I’m completely fine with spending time and money on my costumes, as much as it needs. But it’s Equivalent Exchange, It has to be good and I should feel satisfied in return. And Since I go SO big and work messy, I won’t be able to achieve that if I keep working like this and go big every time.

So, I’ve decided to go back to the very beginning.

When I started cosplaying, most of the materials we use these days weren’t around. Other cosplayers had chance to start  with these materials while we were stuck with old techniques. I definitely want to learn new stuff but I can’t do it if I don’t go back.

So, basically, I will try to forget everything I’ve learned and done in past 10 years. Start from baby steps. Learn  how to sew things with pattern, instead of sewing randomly and trying to make it fit for hours. I’ll use patterns and pepakura files for making armor, examine every material and tool, like I’m seeing it for the first time. Learn how to make proper make-up. Learn plastic make-up. Get better at wig styling.

There are couple of things that I think I’m little bit better at. I probably won’t be working on lights, LEDS, etc , or gems. But I’ll learn how to make molds. Vacuum forming.

I’ll sand ,prime, seal, paint, over and over again, until I feel like “That’s” it!

And until I feel  I’m satisfied, I’ll be doing extremely basic and easy costumes. I’m talking about “Life is Strange” level of easiness here!



(I’m pretty sure that I have all of these clothes in my wardrobe)

But before all that, I’ll be hanging out with my friends,  hug my dog until she hates me, re-organize my workshop so I can use it effectively this time, make the photoshoot area in my workshop ready and wear my old costumes one more time for photoshoots, get better at taking photos and editing.. And of course finish DIY projects in house..

Also, planning to shoot Dj Sona show at home, for the final run this time.

Anyways, I’ll be extremely busy from now on, but first of all, I’ll be visiting Serbia tomorrow..

Thanks for reading and see you soon!

Shopping Hunt – Socking Madness!

Hola everyone.

I don’t usually review stuff, But this post(s) Have a nice story. Basically, it’s almost impossible to find cute/nice tights/pantyhose/socks in Turkey : there are only one or two big companies and their designs are.. well. kinda bad. When I decided to change my whole wardrobe ( literally and figuratively ) I realised that I don’t have enough leggings. After couple of trips to the malls, I had to admit that I won’t be able to find what I wanted in my country.

When I reviewed items, I didn’t care about how fast the shipping is, because when it’s late, it’s usually the local postage firm’s fault instead of seller and so.. Here we go!

Quick Guide to London

It’s a very quick guide to London, because I didn’t want to make a huge post about it. So, here goes London! Summary; Our trip happened in late October and we’ve spent almost a week at London. I was qualifier for Eurocosplay, we attended MCM London Expo, then spent rest of the week with touristic activities. Must sees:

  • Convention (British people definitely know how to make it.  London MCM Expo is one of the biggest ones in Europe, definitely recommended)
  • Parks (Full of squirrels and birds! Go with some dried fruits and nuts and you can feed them with your own hands, they are friendly)
  • Quick tour of squares and palaces (You might not visit inside but you should see these from outside. I recommend Trafalgar square, Buckingham Palace, Victoria memorial, Big Ben, Palace of Westminster, London Eye etc.)
  • King’s Cross and WB Harry Potter Tour (I couldn’t visit the tour but I definitely recommend King’s Cross, you might have to wait a little bit to take a photo with 9 3/4 but it’s worth it)
  • Baker Street (Won’t even go into details.  You can easily  reach via tube)
  • Geek shops and book stores (If you don’t visit you will regret. Forbidden Planet is a must-visit place, So does Hamleys and Orcs Nest. There are other geek shops as well where you can find tons of comics, manga, figures and toys)
  • Shoppingseeing? (Everything is expensive, but that shouldn’t stop you from seeing shopping places. Oxford street and Soho are a must-visit, and if you want to shop badly, go and visit portobello, where you can buy second hand clothes and shoes cheaper.)
  • China Town (It’s near Soho and I loved it!)
  • Museums (I unfortunately realised I actually liked renaissance art, long after my visit but I still liked the museums I’ve seen.  Science Museum, Natural History Museum, British Museum, V&A museum and ofcourse, National Gallery)

Not- So-Good:

Food (It was heartbreakingly bad and  expensive. we ended up digging sandwiches since I didn’t want to eat Turkish food)

Cabs (Taxi? Where?? You can’t find a cab when you need, you actually have to call it.  And it’s terribly expensive. So, if you are lost at London when it’s late, you are doomed)


As far as I know, there are six big airports around the city, but Gatwick and Heathrow are most used ones I guess. City airport was recommended a lot but we had to use Luton (tickets were cheaper, hoorrraaay!) Duty free is extremely small,  but travelling to city wasn’t that hard, there are shuttles to the important parts of the inner city. FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY: IT’S CONVENTION TIME!! We went straight to the Royal Victoria Doc Area where we’ll be staying , just near the ExCeL London. Convention is one hell of an experience. It has more than 100k visitors, it’s easy to travel. Con area is huge with tons of booths. Friday and Saturday were pretty stressful because of Eurocosplay.


But after that we went crazy, Just like that;

DSC_1137 DSC_1141

Hello River Thames! Last day of conventions was blast, we had our signs, taken tons of people and bought goodies!!

DSC_1211 DSC_1216 DSC_1217

Morpheus talking to Morpheus.. An amazing Princess Mononoke cosplay crew.. Singing Batman and Robin? Yis! After the con we went to Stoke Newington, where we’ll be staying (thanks to airbnb <3) it was hard to find the place with our huge luggages, somehow made it. So finally we’ve started our touristic activities at Monday!



Excuse me when I’m enjoying my ice tea before the big day!


Buckingham Palace <3


Respecting Victoria Monument? NO!

After that we headed to the Trafalgar Square via St. James Park

DSC_1249 DSC_1250 DSC_1264

Squirrels, SQUIRRELS, BIRDS! Feeding them was great, you should bring snacks with you when you visit parks. DSC_1260

View is amazing!!


Oh, the time jokes!


This is where they said “I Will” and  “I Kate” , lel.

DSC_1312   London Eye? Dun care.


Merry go round? That’s more like it!

DSC_1355 DSC_1356

We ended our touristic visit with Trafalgar Square and National Gallery. We couldn’t stay at the Gallery for long since it was closing, later I’ve cried a lot because I couldn’t see The Virgin of the Rocks and Sunflowers. Square was amazing though, LIONS!! And unexplained huge blue cock ??!   Later we went to Oxford street at night, too bad that I don’t have any photos :(


I simply don’t remember when and where but we visited tons of museums. Then it’s time for Photo dump!

DSC_1428 DSC_1425 DSC_1421   DSC_1419 DSC_1399 DSC_1376

Science Museum, Natural History Museum, British Museum and  V&A museum . I might have forgotten some of them I guess. I got pretty angry when I saw the statues they have brought from Pantheon and put them under a sign saying they won’t be giving them back to Italy and left British museum :( DSC_1431

And finally, visited King’s Cross! It was pretty late so no one was around, I could play as much as I wanted. It’s at the middle of the train station. I heard that it was at the 9th platform before but because of the crowds they’ve changed it’s place. We’ve decided to take our train to the Stoke Newington from King’s Cross, after taking couple of photos, we bought our train tickets and went to 9th platform, couldn’t find our train, rushed to the 10th, couldn’t find it again. After going back and forward many times we’ve found it and took it at the last second. The moment I realised that we’ve run between 9th and 10th platforms and couldn’t find our platform was priceless! After all these years I still get excited about Harry potter <3



At tuesday we hanged around at Portobello Road. You can find very stylish second hand clothes for reasonable prices. They’re not super cheap but If you can buy Vivienne shoes for 40 pounds, that’s something! Also, bubble tea <3 After that I went straight to the Baker Street. BECAUSE I HAD TO!!


I feel like solving cases today my dear Watson!


And ofcourse, the fake 221b. Original building is part of a bank (or something like that) but they opened a museum at one of the neighbouring buildings. I didn’t visit the museum but heard it was nice. Then I went back to Oxford Street, in search of Vivienne Westwood shop.

AAAANNNDDD FOUND IT! I’m a big fan of her work ever since I’ve seen NANA in 2009, and I’ve always wanted to visit a store and buy some stuff. World’s End wasn’t open back then but I got to visit a store near Oxford. And it was amazing.


And of course I’ve tried heart jacket. It didn’t look that good on me. Even if it did, I don’t think I could buy it anyway. T__T too expensive.. I went crazy for rocking horse ballerinas and armor rings as well, but ended up buying a necklace <3 It’s so simple, yet pretty that I’m still scared of wearing it

Also found this! WOOOT WOOOOOTTT


Then I went to Camden, World’s End (Not the shop, the pub this time) They’ve had it decorated since Halloween was soon and it was simply great!


First of all, I gotta admit that it didn’t reach my expectations. It was my first halloween abroad and I was expecting more I guess. Still, It was great to see all kinds of people hanging around with costumes!We hanged  around it Stoke Newington, Then went to Oxford Street. Then we ended up in Camden again! I had to make myself a costume during the day (since I didn’t want to wear same things I wore to the convention last week) I somehow gathered a young, Hogwarts student like Bellatrix. Got my wand from Hamleys <3

It was like that. There are tons of places I wanted to visit so I’m going back someday, definitely. Ending this loooong post with the most stupid photo in existence, me trying to eat a mushroom-meat burger (yummm)
