He guys, I'm back from my vacation but my blogging mojo didn't came back. So I decided to move on and leave the bloggy behind! Good news: find me now on instagram for outfit posts and my fan art. My user name is @hippiemoonie!

Still not much going on with hippie dressing (but I still do it, don't worry ;) ), so I thought I share my cosplay plans for the Manga Comic Convention with you! As long as I can imagine I love dressing up. I loved strolling trough my granny's attic and I wore her insane dresses from the past. When I grew up, I gave up dressing up for carnival and never celebrated one single helloween. Cosplay is very similar, but you have to wearcostumesandfashion accessoriesthat represent a specificcharacter. Favorite sources aremangaandanime, comic books and cartoons, video games, and live-action films. It is also a significant aspect ofpopular culturein Japan. I never did it but I knew one day it will be my day. I'm going to visit a manga and comic convention next week, but I actually didn't intend to dress up as a manga character for that event. When I woke up this saturday, I had that idea that one dress I already own would be perfect for a Princess Neptune cosplay. She's my fave character from Sailor Moon and I love her turquoise hair and the fact that her weapon is an art nouveau vintage mirror, haha ;) So here we go. I bought a wig, a replica of her mirror and some insane shoes on Asos. And - for sure - a vintage handbag from the 20s that I love!
Aren't these two pieces lovely? As I don't have the time to do a cosplay on the upcoming manga and comic fair, I decided to wear a kimono and show my love for Sailor Moon in a different way. Also, it is a great way to combine my hippie style with my love for my fave series!
