The Cemetery adventures

Today me and my boyfriend had a really fun day of pokemon go and taking photographs at the local cemetery! It's cool that our local Käppärä cemetery has a total of 5 item points and a gym, so we walked them all multiple times. Spend many hours doing so.

It was fun to see other players doing the same point spamming as well!

Shoes - Demonia, Flea market
Tights - Ebay

Now, I'm not much of a photographer as you can see, but I enjoy learning and trying and doing so here you go!

I really like iron fences...

The mausoleum was already closed for the day when we got there, which was sad. I have not been in there but we thought we would come back another day!

I finally got a new phone! My boyfriend surprised me with a Samsung Galaxy 3J 2016. It was super sweet of him! I couldn't play pokemon go with my old one so he thought it was finally time to get me a new one. The old one had been breaking down for months now anyway. Go team Mystic!

I already got this cool Halloween theme on it too!

Yeah yeah, I have gotten to the Pokemon Go train too. How could I not, I have been playing X and Alpha on my 3DS pretty much recently so ain't it just the nicest addition.

I personally think the game has actually improved my life. It feels awesome to hang outside and look for item stops, exercise and just have fun!

So I don't friggin care if you don't care about it.

Lumous 2016

Yessh, so lumous was last weekend. I had a really great time and I hope others did as well!
This year I didn't make a video, nor did I actually even take much any pictures. Shame on me! I was just so sleepy the whole weekend that the festival was just this big fog.

Today thought I made an effort to re-create my club looks for you! I don't have much anything else to do today anyway.


Corset - Dracula clothing
Shoes - Pennangalan
Choker - Storenvy
Skirt - Flea market
Shirt - Lindex

On friday morning I had to work... But I managed to get my butt to Tampere well on time. Got some alcohol and a little something to eat. Then we headed to the club.. But ohh, I have had so much to drink already. Before the final band Shiv-r, I had to stumble back to the hotel room and pass out. At least I managed to get there on time.

I don't remember much anything of my way back to the hotel but I do remember the lady at the hotel counter asking me: "Did you have a nice evening". I must have looked like shit. xD


Saturday went a lot better. I got a pretty good night sleep and we headed to the Dark Market.

From the market I wanted everything. But I felt like I kinda don't need shit at the moment. Just before heading out though I saw this table full of books and it felt like I NEED all of them. But after browsing through them I picked up this book about The magic songs of the Finns. I have had this book on my adlibris wishlist for a good while now, and I just had to buy it.

The book contains all sorts of magic enchantments for helping in every day life in the ye old'e Finland. :'D It's very cool and interesting!

From the market I got nothing else, but afterwards I got to hang out with my friend Veronica for the first time! Oh she was so nice and it was super fun to finally get to hang out with her! We went to eat and did a bit of shopping. I got these sunglasses with kitty ears from H&M sale and this fucking expensive wooden storage box from Aurinko.

Later on I wanted to see the Masquerade on Dog's home, but we weren't sure when they were going to be on. So we were late... But at least I got to see them for a little while. And the pushy salesman who sold their LP's, sold me the Ritual album. I would have bought it anyway though. But he said that this one was the very first one of this album they sold, haha. Should of had gotten it signed. 8C

After that I think we went to rest for a bit and I changed in to my club clothes.

Corset - Dracula Clothing
Shoes - Pleaser, ebay
Skirt - Ebay
Scarf - Flea market 

I was so stoked to finally get to use my new thigh high pleasers! Aren't they gorgeous! I would have gotten a versions with a taller heel but I really want to use these as a daily wear category and I think this heels is perfect for that!

Also my iron fist bag saw the night life for a second time.

I didn't really care for the bands that played in the club on staurday... They were danceable but not really for me. It kinda seemed that just before the last band came on the place got packed and so my expectations were high.. but blergh, no. But at least I got to hand out with Miss Chaos  . She was super nice and I hope to see her again!

Sunday morning I had to head back home since I would have to work on Monday morning. Some year I will stay for the The End club, but this was just no the year.

Yeah yeah, my outfits weren't that great this year. But consider that I had to but all of it together the night before, I think I did okay.

And thank for my friends for putting up with me the whole festival..!

If you want to see my previous Lumous shenanigans you can see this post from 2014 and this one from 2015.

Pre-Lumous Panic

Ohh noeees tomorrow is a workday once again.. Oh boy.

I was supposed to figure out all of my Lumous Gothic Festival outfits this weekend because it's happening next weekend, but I just ended up being a lazy ass. I did plan some of them on paper but you just can't figure outfits on paper since you don't know how will they really look together.

I found out last Friday that all my next weeks sifts will be evening ones... Which will suck. I'll go to after midday and come back home late at night. So I won't have any time to do anything on the weekdays. Except maybe in the morning if I wake up early enough.. Which I wont.

Vest - second hand diy
Skirt - H&M
Shoes - Ideapark
Legwarmers - My mom
Socks - diy
Chains - Ebay
Choker - Second Hand

Even on Friday when the festival starts I was supposed to end my sift wayyy in to the night. But I managed to talk myself on to a morning sift. Thank goth. So I can manage to get to Tampere pretty early just before the Dog's Home stuff starts. Hopefully I won't be dead tired. :'D

I did kinda start looking for clothes to wear.. I threw a lot of them on the bed and then just stared at them for hours.. They are still there. My brain just doesn't want to put things together right now.

But anyway I'm sure I'll get something with me when the time comes on Friday.

I'm very much hoping that I'll see many of my blogger friends and follower friends and stuff at the Lumous! So pleeeaaase come say hi if you see me! I'll try not to be too awkward but I won't make any promises...

I'm still not kinda sure what kind of a blogging thing I'll be making this year but I'm thinking about a video. But then I would definitely have to get more footage than last year.. Haha, I'll try.

As for gaming. I bought Stardew Valley from the steam sale just before it ended. It's just such a damn addicting game I have to admit. Even today I played it for hours even tough I should had been doing something else. It's kind of a mix of.. Harvest moon, animal crossing and minecraft. Pretty cool since those are some of my favorite series!

Guess I'll get back to playing since I wont get anything else done today anyway.. ._.

Tuuttehan sanooo moikka lumouksessa!?

June shenanigans

I have to say I hate when bloggers tell they are sorry that they were away for a long time. They can be  away if they need to be or want to be, haha. But anyway.... sorry :''D But I have my reasons!

Vest - Second hand, diy'ed
Top - Charity store
Choker and necklaces - Flea market
Skirt - H&M
Stockings - Ebay
Shoes - Fantasy shoes, second hand
Bracelets - Ebay and second hand
Earrings - Ebay

Guess it's been more than a month since I last updated.  Lotttttss of things to tell, oh boy.. Take a good position in your couch or chair or bed or where ever, and here we go!

Few weeks ago I was visiting my friend in Joensuu, which is all the way in the other side of Finland. I decided to take a cheapo bus instead of a train since it cost like 1/3 of the price even though I had to change the bus in half way. Still.. The ride took 10 hours. 10 frigging hours. If I would have sat that time on a plane I would had been in Japan dang it. Never again. Except maybe next time when I feel cheap again.

Anyways I had a great time! We went to club Syndrome which conveniently was held on that weekend. The music there was... unnghh.. well... DJ Sadenia was good, and made me dance a lot but the muisc after her was really not to my taste at all.

The only photo I took at the trip. Taken with a potato.

I also got a new ear piercing at underground Joensuu! It's a thing that I have one each time I visit Joensuu since they kinda have cheap prices over there.

We also visited a some flea markets and I found loads of stuff to take back with me. Which kinda was not convenient since I already had tons of stuff with me, and then I took back like two bags more stuff. :'D

After I came back from Joensuu I started work! Yes I got a job! It's in a factory where they make bread and buns and all that. And my job there is to pack them in boxes and bags.

I have been there for 1 and a half weeks now and I'm slightly maybe starting to get the hang of it. But the start was horrible. I felt kinda like I had been thrown in the middle of things without any help. I still slightly feel like that though.

But the work is still very much physically exhausting! My legs and arms and back are all killing me and I have bruised and scratches all over. Good thing about it though, is that I have gone few kilos over my ideal weight and there I can just sweat it all off, haha.

Annoyingly tough, they didn't mention the "no any piercings" rule before the first day, so have been having to take my freshly pierced ear piercing off every time I go to work. And it really is slowing down the healing progress. Luckily I have been managed to get it back on every day tough.

We also have a job clothes that are all white.. So I can't wear anything I like all week, except in the weekends. It's really bumming me out.

As for running this blog, I will try my best at the weekends at least. Might not be able to do it every weekend but I'll try. This job is  only for 2 more months (so far) so I guess I'll get back to normal rythm after that.

Found the coolest sign from the flea market! xD Even tough I don't have a tarantula... yet!
But yeahhhh! 2 weeks till the Lumous gothic festival! I have my ticket ready to go and I just cannnn't wait! Just wondering when ever I will be able to figure out the outfits. I am at work all weekdays and when I come home I just dorp dead. + Next weekend I might not be home.

Luckily I have been thinking them in my head for months now so I don't have to start from scratch.

In the "I got a job" celebration I ordered myself some sweet sweet shoes from Pleaser! Which I am planning to use at Lumous for the first time, you'll have to wait till then to see em! :')

So.. Anyone got anything good from the Steam summer sales? I have bought Long live the Queen, Portal knights, Hatoful Boyfriend and Lili:Child of Geos. These are all kinda casual, perfect for a slight after work game time.

Anyways, at the moment I have taken my make-up off, and thrown on my pyjamas and I'm plannig to spend the rest of the night with these friends:

Ps. Here's my actual hair at the moment!

PPS. I haven't done haul type posts in a long time since I think no one really gains anything from them since most of my stuff come from the flea markets and such. But I suppose it could be inspiration for second hand hunting instead of buying all your stuff new. What do you think about second hand haul posts?
