Spanish Lolita Alliance Twinning Challenge

 My friend Bárbara is part of the Spanish Lolita Alliance, and asked me to take part in their latest challenge with her! 
The challenge was to create twin co-ords with someone, and it so happens we both have matching Vampire Requiem prints.
Because I coudln't decide if I wanted to use the skirt, or the JSK, I went with making us triplets.

Haunted Vampire Photoshoot and Vlog

The cathedral we are near is next to an old hopsital and in front of the Necropolis.
The weird noises and camera glitches we experienced all might MUST have been ghosts... right?

Elf-Ear Headphones Review

These appeared for a hot minute all over every social media site, then promptly vanished again. To my knowledge. But I really liked them, and decided to look up a pair for myself.

At first I tried to find an original designer, or original producer for these. Since all the buying options were very cheap, and my gut reaction was to assume they were a knockoff of something else.
I didn't find anything however, so I went for the cheap Ebay listing.
(if you know of an "original" version of these, please let me know!)

They cost £9.99, free shipping, and arrived in 4 days.
They came in a little rectangular box with both sides displayed nicely inside.

The ear parts themselves are soft sillicone, making them surprisingly comfortable to wear.
Unfortunately they do not come in any other colour. I don't know how easy they'd be to paint or dye, but it might be worth a try.

They can be a little tricky to put on at first, because of the way the wire has to curve back on itself, but once they're on, they stay on, even if you take the speaker part out of your ear.
The speaker parts have soft sillicone parts that shape to your ear, so they cancell out other sounds very well.

Overall, I really like these. They're cute, comfortable, work well and were cheap and easy to get.
So far the only real down side is that they only come in one colour.

Let me know what you think of them in a comment!
