I was at my familly house for my mom's birthday. I planned to get her a gift but it didn't arrive on time, I felt bad about it, and I'll certainly not see her again until the second week of july so yeah, I guess I'm not a good daughter. I've been with her at her drawing class (she is an artist and does illustration, goes to drawing classes for models). I can't stand most of my drawings but apparently it isn't that bad according to the teacher.
For her birthday we had lunch at one of my favourite restaurant at Saint-Valentin which does french-japanese modern cuisine. Everything was so good, even things I usually hate like spinach. Loved the yuzu cocktail too. The only down side is that they don't offer japanese tea, but I guess the salted/vegetable-like flavour of japanese tea isn't really common as far as digestive goes.
So I lurned that there is a movie about my favourite painter planned for december. Yes, Turner, yes my tastes are common, I like Chopin, Pre-raphaelites, Oscar Wilde and Romantiscism, please don't despise me.
The only thing I can do is cross my fingers so the director choose a Turner-like photography as Webber did for his Girl with the Pearl Earring which was not bad and had some pretty nice scenes.
And also good costumes. I cringe when I see inexact costumes in XIXth century based movie (I look at you, Coppola's Dracula, I don't really know why but I don't like you).
Still cinema wise, I should go and see Maleficient. I highly doubt it will be that great, but costumes look super nice and overall it's seems aesthetically pleasing so, why not ?
This week I also absolutly need to go and see this exhibition about tatoos and their evolutions at musée du Quai Branly, which is Paris's primitive art center.
And finally I got my sewing machine back and a bunch of my fairy tails books so I can start working on my summer events outfits at last ! Corssing my fingers so I can make something passable. I feel like I'm most likely to be uncreative and just wear a kimono at Japan Expo, since I'm going to die of heat anyway.
As it's been quite a while, here is my lolita 52 challenge entry too : 17 : My first meetup.
To be fair I don't exactly remember what was my first meetup. The first time I met lolita was at Japan Expo (was it 2009 ?), but I can't pinpoint my first 'true' meetup.
