Big Hero 6 Baymax Brooch!

As soon as I saw the trailers for Big Hero 6, I knew I'd fall in love with the film. I saw it when it came out and, sure enough, I loooooved it! The story was touching, the animation was beautiful and Baymax has to be the cutest Pixar character ever. I knew right away I wanted to make something with Baymax on it, especially after all the awards the film has recently won.

My inspiration! Anybody know who made this???
While looking for Baymax plushies on Google, I stumbled upon this super cute image (sadly without any credit anywhere!) The plushie with the blush on it convinced me that I had to make a kawaii blushy Baymax!

Without further ado, here is my blushing Baymax brooch!

I wanted to make it extra cute by adding ruffles around it and a little bow. 2 people have told me so far that he looks like he's wearing a bonnet so I'm going to call him Baby Baymax!

I used a variation of this tutorial by Wild Olive to make the ruffle part (called a yoyo) with pink chiffon. His face was made with stiff white glitter felt and details were embroidered on. The blush was done with... well blush!

The brooch was such a quick project (around 2 hours or less) and it's perfect for me to wear with my lolita coords or to add a little cuteness on my jackets since it's still kind of cold.

I still have to find a pin for it though. Anybody know where I can find 2-way clips?

His face came out a teeny bit wonky but I think he's still cute! Maybe I'll try to remake him one day.

Did you go to see Big Hero 6? Did you love it as much as I did?

Sweet Tunes: My Lolita Playlist!

When I get dressed up in lolita, I love listening to music specifically chosen for the occasion. When I'm dressed up I like music that makes me feel happy and confident and puts a smile on my face! This is the playlist I play on my phone when walking around in lolita.

There are super fun songs to make me laugh and bounce.
There are also songs to put a bit of pep and sass in my step (a few k-pop hits for that purpose!)
And there are also some occasional sweet songs thrown in to match my sweet lolita style.

Music is such a strong mood setter so I imagine everyone must have songs or playlists they play when they want to feel a certain way! But I wonder if any of you have music to suit your clothing styles? Maybe some alternative rock when you're dressing rocker chic or classical music when dressed up in... well classic lolita? Anybody else do this too?
