Let's Do The Fairy-Kei 30 Day Challange! (Back from Indiana, 5 questions in one)

Dear Magical Dancing Cupcake Fairies, 
I am finally back on track after going back to Indiana to visit family for Christmas and my birthday (January 1st~). I arrived back in Texas about a week ago and have been settling in once again. I have been wanting to get back to my blog all week. I have a few small personal updates I would like to share, then I have 5 more days of the Fairy Kei Challenge.
~ I think Sugar, my guinea pig, is pregnant. When I got back she seemed to be morbidly obese. She wasn't really eating considerably more, but she was drinking a lot of water. Also, things seem to be moving in her stomach. We all still think Spice, her guinea pig companion, looks female, but just in case we did separate them. 
 ~ I found another Rainbow Brite shirt at Walmart, but I left it in Indiana and need to wait for someone to send it to me before I have it. (>.<)
~ I spent a lot of time while in Indiana playing with the Japanese artificial singing program, UTAU. It's a lot of fun! I was thinking about making another hobby blog for it.
~ I just applied at the local Michael's, which is opening in March. I might get that job and am nervous, but very excited, please wish me lucks! (>U<b)       

 Day six: Your luckiest thrift-store find.
I would say anytime I find very cheap and cute shoes that I can fit in at a thrift store, that is about the luckiest find possible. I have found plenty of wonderful items I use often at thrift stores, but there are none I use as often as shoes. I can honestly say I am wearing thrift store sneakers or mary janes most of the time. I don't like wearing delicate, expensive, or easily ruined shoes on a daily basis so finding shoes that I can spend anywhere from 1-7 dollars on is great for everyday wear and I don't feel as guilty if something happens to them.
These are shoes I wear very often that I remember buying at Goodwill for about 7 dollars a long time ago.

(I also really enjoy finding cute backpacks, my weakness)

 Day seven: 5 songs that remind you of Fairy-Kei.
~Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper
This song is easily my first pick when I want to get inspired for fairy-kei! It is so fun and freeing (and also dance-y, yes, very dance-y) This song truely embodies the spirit of Fairy-Kei for me and I just love Cyndi Lauper she is great!
~ Our Lips Are Sealed by The Go Gos
Another fun dance-y song from the 80s.
~ Love Is a Battlefield By Pat Benatar\
You may begin to see a pattern! A lot of my songs on my 'Fairy Kei Inspiration' playlist are girly 80s pop songs! I just happen to love them and they always bring Fairy-Kei to mind since it was based on the decade. This song also makes me think of 13 going on 30, I love that movie.
~ Pon Pon Pon By KYARY PAMYU PAMYU (>;U;< <33)
I love her so much!!!! Any of her music makes me think of fairy-kei pretty quickly~! She is so out there and unique and all her music is fun! It's not everyday I find music videos I can't look away from~ She is an artist, musically and fashion wise.
~ Magical Journey By Pinku Project
They are so sweet! Don't you just love Pinku Project? I also love supporting bands like this! It's always been my dream to start a fairy-kei and lolita themed band and it's so great that they did it!! If you don't know them please look them up! 

 Jem and the Holograms
It was a bit difficult to just list five, for the most part I just picked five random ones that remind me of Fairy Kei. Some other music worth listing, Toybox (or other similar Euro Bubblegum Pop bands), Jem and The Holograms, Rupaul, and other music by the artists whose songs are listed above. To me fairy-kei is a fun and freeing fashion, so most of the music I picked is fun and freeing music about just having a good time and being yourself.

 Day eight: How do your family and friends feel about the style?

I know may be one of the lucky ones, but most of my friends and immediate family don't really care, some even like it. As for the ones that like it, they find it to be unique and different. It has the potential to make them smile and is usually always interesting to look at. I have had problems with many people not liking me because I'm a bit quirky, but I've always thought of being different and quirky as a real blessing. It helps me to see which people in my life truly do like me for me. Some people seem nice on the surface, but then will turn on you in a second when they find out your quirks. Since I literally wear many of my quirks on my sleeve, I have always had a fairly easy time weeding out true friends from those who are less true and are likely to abandon me at the drop of a frilly pink bow. I may have not had many friends growing up, but the ones I did have were loyal and easy to share secrets with.

 Day nine: Your most treasured piece of clothing.  
 I REALLY need to get back into taking outfit pictures, I have used this outfit to demonstrate a point at least 3 times. Anywho~ This is me wearing my pink glasses and pink wig in an outfit!
This is a hard one. I tend to treasure all my clothing you see. For the purposes of Fairy Kei I would say the most useful items in my wardrobe are my pink prescription glasses and my pink wig. Both things just add a fairy-kei vibe to everything I wear and I just love it. I could wear one of my normal outfits with my regular hair (brown) and my old glasses (Square and mostly black) and the outfit just pops considerably less, but when I wear the same outfit with my big pink glasses and my pink wig I always tend to like the outfit at least 85% more.They have magic powers of 'kawaii'!

 Day ten: How do you react to positive comments or people curious about your style on the streets?
 "You wanna know about Fairy-Kei~?!?!?~ Sure! Come on let's be best friends and I'll show you all my favorite clothes and places to shop and you can borrow some of my clothes if you want to!!"- I would really do that. I need to keep myself on a leash. (XD') image location is here\
Possibly with a bit of over eager information spilling sometimes (regrettably XD). I am friendly about all kinds of comments, but the positive ones are obviously the easiest ones to react well to. I'm a nice girl at heart and also very naive. I'm usually accommodating when people want pictures, after all it's not everyday we see someone dressed so cute and different, right? I always like to see the good in people, so I view many comments as positive (even if others do not and maybe they are not positive after all) and I'm always excited to receive positive comments! When your work you put into your outfits is recognized it's so nice. If they are curious about my style I have to constantly tell myself not to be overly excited so I don't scare them away! (My excitable nature causes me trouble from time to time.)
These questions were fun! I just did the next five on the list, but I was really glad they ended up being fairly easy to answer questions! I'm glad to be back!! I should be gaining momentum with my posts very very soon! If you would like me to go into detail about anything mentioned here in another post please tell me and don't be shy to share your thoughts in the comments! (<3) 
Perkily Yours, Skiteanna La~Sweet
