Imo is currently in Japan and has just picked up an order from one of our favourite brands, Swimmer! She says that cute phone cases and accessories are really trendy in Harajuku right now and from what she’s shown us she has picked up some amazing gear!
Can we be the first to say, “eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!” ;A; It looks amazing! And this is just some of the stuff!! You’re a superstar as always Imo-chan!
We hope you guys are as excited as we are!!!! Let us know what you think of our amazing Swimmer order!
Meg here! So on Wednesday 16th, I went to see Nicki Minaj’s concert in Sydney. It was her first show ever in Australia AND and the first show of her Roman Reloaded Tour! I was so blown away by her costuming that I had to share it with you guys!
My first impressions of seeing Nicki Minaj in the flesh is that she makes the perfect doll! Just like Barbie! While everyone was screaming and dancing, I spent the hour set just staring at her mesmerized. Here is the best video online right now, in terms of you being able to hear her voice over the singing crowd!
Nicki had four costume changes, and my two favourites included her Barbie-pink dress, and her fairy-kei-meets-rainbow-brite ensemble. Unfortunately I was unable to take pictures, and a lot of the ones that have come online show just her first costume. But here are some snaps by Mike Wass that I found on Idolator (check out their great review!)
Here’s her Barbie outfit! The set was also fantastic, as the background transformed into a Barbie dream house!
I absolutely loved the fall and graduated colouring on the skirt! And the PVC corset was a nice edgy touch.
I think her killer costume was the fairy-kei-meets-rainbow-brite ensemble, but unfortunately there is just one photo on the internet of it…and the quality wasn’t so great. But the outfit was a-MA-zing, and was perfect for her performance of “Super Bass” at the end. Here’s a video I found of her dancing around in the outfit!
If you’re wondering, yes the sound was that loud. The walls were shaking for the whole set! Anyway, just LOOK at that outfit! Amazing! Her lollypop necklace reminds me of something from 6% Doki Doki and her tights look like Celeste Stein! I think this style really works well for Nicki! Here is another fairy-kei inspired coordinate she wore to a signing session in the UK.
Not only does she have a Barbie tutu here, I am pretty sure those are Troll Doll tights! (Which we will hopefully restock soon!)
Also I have to say that everyone went nuts for Nicki. They were screaming the roof off! When the Hordern Pavillion started to let people through in small groups, the crowd surged forward twice, pushing me about 10 metres forward and throwing me up against a barricade which came crashing down with me! I have never seen anything like it!
I just want to leave you guys with my favourite song performed on the night, “Starships.” It was a lot of fun! Click through this video to see some more great clips from this user!
But of course, the real thing was spectacular and is a must see if you can. If Nicki is coming to your town, its definitely worth going to see her 1 hour set. I loved it! There are also lots of other reviews online if you’re interested. All the pictures and videos included in this blog have click throughs to their sources so check them out!
Bei putting up her amazing work for Post Modernism 3 in Sydney, 2012.
Bei Badgirl is the cutest kawaii mermaid princess on tumblr, and has exhibited internationally. Her style is a sweet blend of street art and pop art, and she loves to depict kawaii babes who are cute and a little bit naughty. She does the most amazing cut out paintings and paste ups! Currently, her latest work is part of the My Little Pony Project in LA! And next week, she is jetting off to the UK to participate in Superpopmagicshow!

Sometimes, it’s hard to tell the difference between Miss Badgirl’s art and the merbabe herself! Bei loves things kawaii and bad-ass, and if she’s digging something, it’s bound to appear in her art at some point! Her tumblr is just amazing! Personally, I love Bei’s work because it shows us that it’s okay to be cute and have attitude at the same time! Plus, I use her motto “just stay cute and don’t worry!” as a mantra everyday.
Currently, Bei is based in Australia and she really wants to meet her fans in the US! And the good news is that we can help her! Bei has a good chance of winning Pedestrian.tv’s bachelorette of the year award and a trip to New York!! We think you should go vote for her! Go on, you know you want to! Voting closes in just 7 days, so get in quick!
