Tags: Kawaii Land fashion event
This past May I had the honor of being a featured artist for the first ever Kawaii Land fashion event at Los Globos. I spent weeks creating a special ultra-kawaii collection for this event that included bondage themed pastel fur coats and dinosaur harnesses. It is BY FAR my favorite collection ever! Here are some photos from the event!

Happy Tuesday everyone!
So since the very first month I moved to LA I have been participating in a rad art/ fashion show called Sugar that is put on by my friend and one of the most creative human beings alive, Timmery Turner. I joined Sugar when it was just a baby on its second show and today celebrates the third year anniversary of their very first Sugar show! Holy cow!
Being that Christmas is around the corner, the next sugar show is appropriately “Nightmare before Christmas themed and Timmery has once again asked me to join her team. I’ll be showing 3-4 really elaborate NMBC inspired pieces so you definitely don’t want to miss it.

And as somewhat of a tribute, I thought I’d do a little retrospective of a few of the sugar shows I’ve done over the past 3 years.
You may have noticed that my etsy site has been inactive for quite some time now (okay, like 2 years. whatever). I myself have been in a lengthy transitional state as far as lifestyle and living situations go, but happily things have started to settle and I have much more time (and energy!) to once again focus on Pretty Star.
In order to get everything back up and running though, I needed to photograph everything in my inventory. So I gave my good friend Kaddie O’keefe, photographer over at Gunslinger Photography, a call and she drove all the way up to LA from San Diego to shoot my 2013 look book.
I also kidnapped 3 of the cutest models ever and made them take pictures in my dresses without food or pay or anything. Yaaaaay, slave labor! * Do not worry, they will be greatly compensated come Christmas time.
Here’s a brief preview of what the shoot looked like from my perspective while we wait for the actual pictures that were taken by a professional.

Then as what usually happens when you get 5 girls in room together, we just started taking pictures of ourselves.

Xan forces me to take a photo despite no makeup. Damnit, woman!
Then boyfriend’s cat is all “Why u no ask me to model?” “Is cuz I poop on the floor?”
Yes, orange cat, that is precisely the reason.
I love googling Pretty Star Clothing every now and then. Not only because I’m incredibly vain, but also because when I do, I come across jems like this that I never knew existed.
I believe it was 2 years ago, before I fully developed Pretty Star, I outfitted a local girl band “Mavien Bliss” for a series of shows. Here they are performing one of their singles dressed like harajuku hoochies (this is a good thing!) thanks to Pretty star Clothing.
Check them out on their facebook page, they’re just as cute as ever!
Took a quick weekend trip to San Diego back in August to visit home and show some of my new stuff at May Star’s new club “Diamond Dust”. I had the opportunity as a youngin’ to do one of May’s 18+ Pop Noir shows a few years ago, but this time I got to show on the big girl stage and drink alcohol, YAY!
Lots of old things featured along with a few new ones sprinkled in.
Check out the photos all taken by Dominick Valentic. Enjoy!
