Because so many people have said that they're interested in my stuff and would prefer being able to get it separately, I'm offering a chance at it here before putting the lot on ebay.

I'm not really crazy about putting things on hold because it's not exactly fair if someone else wants an item and has to wait to see if you'll pay or not.  With that being said, if there's something that you do want, let me know and I will hold it on the condition that you send a nonrefundable deposit of $1 (this does not go toward your purchase) via paypal.  That will get you 7 days of holding. 

I ship priority, US and overseas, however, please keep in mind that you're going to be paying shipping and shipping is going to be extra for overseas orders.  Sometimes a lot extra.  (I once paid $30+ out of pocket to ship something because I wasn't aware that fees had changed and I won't do that, so please keep that in mind.)
Posted so no one will need to wonder how much shipping is: 
For international shipping

Buying everything?
If you want the entire lot, then I'm asking $200 obo. 
The sooner you can pay, the more I'm willing to haggle as things are taking up space that I no longer have. 

Payment Options
POSTAL money orders: either US or International

Stuff for Sale

Some items have been sold since the videos were posted, I've added annotations so that you can see what is no longer available.

Pretty much moved to tumblr.


I still post here on communities, and I may do the occasional LJ entry, but I'm on tumblr most of the time.

Quick Update

I love how my last post was about selling my lolita when I've been lusting after a certain couple of items on meta's website.  Ah well, what can you do?

I like what I like.  I may end up listening to a friend of mine and just selling the stuff that I don't like the fit of, like that one blouse that's on my garage sale site gothicsugar.weebly.com because I find that it feels too short. 

Anyway, it's that time of year again here in GA where the seasons change and I start dealing with the lovely fluctuations between hot and cold as I go from one class to another.  
And I am super excited.  I was just told yesterday that the committee for the English Department accepted my thesis proposal, so next semester (while also looking for a job) I'll be doing my senior thesis, internship, advanced poetry, and taking a grad level course in modern poetry.  
It feels weird to be writing poetry for a grad when I've been doing it without showing anyone for so long.  But it's also pretty awesome that I found myself taking to it.

I've been neglecting my lj and my deviantart, but I've already got 40+ posts on tumblr.  ampluschic, blackartstudent, and doe-eyeddove are part of one collective and the other is going to be gothic sugar, the walrus king ('cause I'm going to do webcomics) and Sugar Pop Dreamland.  I'm really looking forward to that.  I'm also taking the opportunity to do some much needed tweaking of what I hope to be a schedule for art making because I've been so far from doing that.

Anyways, gotta go for now, I need to finish up that newsletter I've been working on this semester.

Selling my lolita

Well, I've been semi busy lately.  I've been working on a new blog.  Well, two new blogs actually.  I'm over on tumblr.  Neither of them is a Gothic Sugar blog though.  One is ampluschic for plus size fashion and the other is blackartstudent for a fundraiser to assist with paying for grad school and undergrad loans that I had to take out.

I'm also selling off the majority of my lolita.  Primarily because I never wear it.  I mean, I don't have the opportunity to go to meet ups and I don't really see the point in keeping the clothes any longer.  So I'm selling some OP's and skirts, and one of the blouses I have that I don't think will transition well into my regular wardrobe.    I am keeping three skirts though.  Among them, my bodyline carousel skirt.  Why?  Because the thing is fecking gorgeous.  Which means that if I can work a loli item into everyday wear, I'm going to do it.  And I've also altered it to fit so that's pretty neat.  The method is embarrassing but it worked, and that's what matters.  I just need to sew it up.

But if anyone's interested in seeing any of the stuff before it goes up, let me know.  I should have the photos up later this week if I find my camera.  I really need to get better organized.

Well, I've done it.

I'm feeling a little excited with the prospect, though a little freaked out.  I finally figured out what to do for my senior thesis as well as how to do it. This should be interesting and pretty different for those going to the showcase next semester. I hope it goes well.


The people who've heard about it like that I want to do something a bit more creative, but they aren't sure what I'm planning and neither was I. ....at first. 


During the summer I spoke with Dr. Harold about it and was trying to find a way to do something a bit more creative than writing a paper.  I know I'm a Lit Major, but that's just what I'm studying and as much as I hate to admit it; I know that's not what I'm going to focus the rest of my life on.  So, I've been wracking my brain to come up with a way to combine art with my thesis.


The trick was that I needed to do it in a way that wouldn't look like I was just illustrating whatever it was I did but the fact of the matter is that for me writing and art have always been synonymous.  I've sketched until I could form the words I needed and I've written to the images in my head.  I also need to be able to do these in a presentation for a group if I understand correctly.  But I'm hoping to go see the presentations this semester to see how it's done.  If I had my way I'd ask for special permission to do it off campus.  But I don't know if that would go over so well.


And looking at what I've been doing the past few years, I can honestly say I've been frustrated and I know that Tiffany was right when she said I wasting my talent.  Though I had already decided that I would do this to help me get to the next stage which is where I would do what I wanted to do. I just didn't see how that would happen until a couple of semesters ago.


So over the summer I also spoke to Mr. Xie about getting something together and I'm getting my studio (spare bedroom) organized and my supplies together to do what I hope will be something meaningful that will also show my voice as an artist.  As well as get me into grad school.


Basically, I'm going to be working on a series of poetry with semi large scale paintings.  The poems are going to be incoporated as a visual element instead of just images with text and will be images as text.  I thought that might be a good idea when I thought about some stuff that people had told me before when I was having my work looked at (poems and art). 


As for the paintings, I'm hoping to stay under three feet.  The last big one I did I ended up giving away when I moved because there was no way to transport it at the time...which I regret, but I know that the person I gave it to really likes my work.


So, I'm piling on the classes this semester.  >..>  I kind of have to because I'm supposed to have all my cores out of the way before I do my thesis and I have two left.  And I need to do a creative writing course I think.  Something about there being a need to take at least two courses in the area you want to do your thesis which I guess makes sense.  And all I've done so far are lit courses.

Meanwhile, I'm kind of freaked out because I noticed that my skin is ...well, it's changing colours.  I noticed some light patches of skin on my arms and I hadn't remembered seeing them before, but there are quite a few of them.  I can also see underneath the normal skin next to them that looks like it's starting to lighten out.  And this isn't a tan going away, this is my regular brown skin turning to a lighter color.  Kind of freaky. 

But aside from that, this is one of the most boring weeks ever.  Last week was the first week of "vacation" and I was finishing up something for my internship.  This week...nothing really.  And I start classes next week.
I'm really hoping I can keep up with the pace of five classes though.   I'm hoping I can because did four over the summer and didn't do too badly, but then most of those were online.  So I have to wait and see what happens.

Writer's Block: Celebrity Overload

Which celebrity are you sick of seeing? Who would you like to see more of?

Well, this is why I'm glad I don't have tv anymore.  But yahoo can't seem to leave Kanye West and Lindsey Lohan alone for some reason, so I'll put those two together and say Kansie Lest.


For those who actually read this, I'm shipping tomorrow on stuff that has been ordered in the last couple of weeks and not been shipped out.

I just copied down the last address and I've bugged my ride to go out when they're free tomorrow.  So shipping off more Sailor Moon stuff.  ^-^  I'm wondering if I should ad some extras as a thank you.  I still have some of those buttons that I've made.

Meanwhile I got my grades the other day and I've got straight A's.  I'm hoping I can keep this up for the next couple of semesters.  I also just finished the final touches on the journal I've been helping with for my internship.  I was charged with cover design but I also did some of the interior.  It was supposed to just be copy and paste for some articles.  But, nothing's ever that easy, so it ended up taking a while.  So long in fact, that I was still working on it today after already having gotten my grade for the internship.  I'll mail it off in the morning when I can look at it fresh to make sure it's free of mistakes.

Other than that, I've been doing a bit of personal research.  I don't think I've talked about it here, maybe I have, but I've had this medical problem for years with absolutely no relief and I've been looking into getting assistance.  My sister told me about gradinsurance for college students, so I'm going through there to see if I can find a specialist to help me get this checked out.  The school's medical office just doesn't have the resources nor the time to deal with this and I've not had much luck with it yet.

Basically it's one of those things where you know something is wrong and others agree because they can see clearly that something is wrong, but no one believes in the possibility that it's more than what they see on the surface.  And having dealt with that for so long is insanely frustrating.  At this point, I don't even care how bad it is because I just want to know what's wrong.  At least that's how I feel about it sometimes.  Mostly because I did what I was told and it didn't make me feel any better.  So I'm left here wondering what to do about the whole thing.

Frustrated rant over

ok then

Ok, so after all that back and forth, I ended up e-mailing the AA director for a refund.  I haven't gotten it yet, but hopefully I will before prereg closes.  I wanted to enjoy the con this year, so I opted out on the Artist's Alley.  I do have a club table though.  I don't have to actually be at the club table, so it's cool.  I may spend some time there each day and I'll post a schedule for it closer to con time.

What's the name of the Club?  Kawaii America.  I wanted to do something to meet other artists who're into the same kind of art styles that I'm into without having to worry about bothering people while they're trying to sell because AA isn't as sociable as people make it out to be.  There's a lot of down time yes, but if potential customers see you talking, they're not going to want to interrupt you.

And I thought it would be easier to advertise this way.  So I've been trying to figure out what kind of promo material I want to do because I do intend to have freebies at the table.  I will likely be wearing lolita since I hardly ever wear lolita (actually selling some clothing for you plus size girls on my garage sale page.  The address is below this entry because lj is being a butt and I can't edit it to remove the thing.   As for the promo stuff, the only think that I know I want to do is pass out fliers which I'm going to work on designs for over my two week break from classes.

Speaking of breaks, I missed an entire week of Spanish class which means I missed learning an entire chapter.  So, I don't want to go into why I missed because it's something that I'm not really too comfortable talking about.  (We'll just say I was sick and leave it at that because I was sick, but it's not like physical kind of sick.)  So I finally am able to send my professor an e-mail and she apparently thought I was going to drop the class.  But I'm thinking who would drop the class if they have an A at midterms? 

Then there's the financial thing.  I hate living on student aid because it's iffy and I feel like I'm always playing catch up.  Not to mention that the last couple of summers I've been going to school just to have funds to live on and each summer I've been living with someone else.  Or should I say letting someone else live with me.  I doubt that this summer the other person was as big a drain on my resources as the last person though.  >..>  I'm just looking forward to graduating next year and having a steady source of income.  Somehow I imagine it will be a bit less stressful.

Anemia is a B***H

I'm really, really tired.  That's pretty much it.
There's other stuff, but I can't think right now because I'm tired and this is a random somewhat meaningless entry.
Screw studying, I can't concentrate.  >..>  I'm going to bed.

Mmm mmm fevah

I'm still thinking of going to AWA's AA.  Don't ask me why, but I feel like I'd be breaking tradition and there are things about it that I do enjoy.  *shrugs*  Or maybe deep down I just like being able to show off what I'm doing to people who like it and being around people who do the same.  I dunno.  At any rate, the table's paid for, I've got my table munkee lined up and we'll be working on new things that are more the kind of stuff I want to produce than what I've been doing.  Hopefully I'll finally get to do some stuff away from the table.  (Lolita events primarily)  -the other reason I was considering not being at the table-

At the moment though, I'm up watching Netflix (Keeping Up Appearances) while snacking on saltines.  I'd slept most of the day after arriving home from class.  Being sick is no fun.  But I had to go because there was a test today.  So what can you do?  Only I found out that I was moving into a fever.  Thankfully this one only lasted a few hours and seems to have gone away.  I felt pretty terrible.  Now I'm just on the other side of blegh.

I'm thinking of whether I'm going in the morning.  Probably not because I'd like to just take a day to feel better.  The last time I started going about after a fever I ended up in bed for two weeks.  Not a pleasant experience.

But yeah.  That's what's been going on lately.
