Another subgroup of WGT-attendees are the steampunk-supporter. Steampunk is a science fiction or science fantasy related genre, incorporating technology and designs inspired by the industrial machineries of the 19th century. Fashion is often a mixture of Victorian designs and mechanic things, such as timepieces, parasols, flying/driving goggles, or welding googles. Mostly, dark and brownish colors … Continue reading DIY: Steampunk/End Time Saga Outfit (@WaveGotikTreffen2017)
Ever since I can remember (and, well, my memory is not the best one), I was fascinated by one festival not so far away from the town I grew up: The Wave Gotik Treffen (WGT) in Leipzig. I loved the dresses and skirts, costumes and different styles. I have always loved black clothes, because black … Continue reading DIY: Frill Skirt (@WaveGotikTreffen2017)
There are two ways this post may makes you feel: Either you think that this is nothing new to you or you are as excited about it as I was when I heard about it. There is a way to print whatever you want on a textile of your choice without much effort and it … Continue reading Textile printing with lavender oil
It's been a while that I wrote about my camping car project. It's more than a month ago that we brought the car to my parents' place. This was an exciting day and the weeks after were much more exciting. I couldn't do a lot, because I have no idea how to repair a car … Continue reading Project Camping Car II
It's been a while since I wrote about my latest knitting project and that might be due to the fact that I didn't knit so much in the last weeks. However, I finished the front part of it and now, there are just 3 parts left: the back and both arms. Actually, I deviated a … Continue reading 1/4 – The Norway Sweater
All of this started with a crazy idea. Last Christmas, I spent a nice afternoon with my mother and my sister. We prepared the decoration for a cake and we talked about different things. One topic was the purchase of a car. I never had a car and even when I turned 18 and made … Continue reading The Beginning of a Huge Project
Almost one month ago, I wrote about a new knitting project: the sweater vest for my nephew! Finally, his first birthday came and I gave it to him as a present. I was excited as I didn't know whether it would fit or not. I did not finish it; I left the whole for the … Continue reading The Sweater Vest fits!
I'm really glad that the weather started to be springlike. Well, I have to admit: it's still cold and the sun has not its full power back. But walking along the Karl-Heine-Kanal (Leipzig) this morning was a real pleasure. Not only because of the sun tickling my nose and sparrows hiding in the bushes. I … Continue reading Sunny days just want to be fun!
More than 1 year ago I didn't care much about the weather. Every morning after I got up, I opened my shutters, glancing outside and walking into the bathroom. Depending on the weather I just decided what to wear and whether I would go by bike or bus. Nothing else. After I adopted Voxel, it … Continue reading Awakening in a WinterWonderLand
Everyone knows this strange situation: You go shopping because you need to buy something. But in the end, you either couldn't find anything, couldn't decide or you come home with something totally random which you don't even need or thought someone invented it. Or the situation that you don't want to buy something, you're just … Continue reading Knitting, impulse buy and what I made of it – The ‘Norway Sweater’
