whenever you tell people you go on a vacation in February, they normally expect you to go rather south than north. However, I always enjoyed winter more than summer, and I always wanted to go to Helsinki once in my life. And this year, I have the chance!
When I was in Vienna at the Innocent World Tea Party last autumn, I had a really nice chat with the designer from Cloudberry Lady, who told me about Hellocon, a Lolita convention in Helsinki. I thought about it when I returned home and then decided to attend it. I'm quite exited and looking forward to it!
One of the preparations included sewing a new, warm, fluffy coat (after I sold my old one some time ago.)
Let's just say I really like fake fur (^.-)
I took the pictures with a petticoat underneath, but I can wear it nicley without one, too.
For the buttons, I covered some with the same fake fur as used for the coat.
The lining is really really fluffy, and so far the coat passed the check in swiss winter weather effortlessly, so I'm confident I'll have warm enough in Finnland too.
Btw, have you seen the new Disney movie Frozen? I feel like winter always makes a movie (and especially an animated movie) even more magical (*.*)
