These pictures taken two months ago but I haven't had a chance to post it.
I designed this dress and looked for the fabric myself. It was actually the first time I ever buy the fabric for my own dress. I and Karin went to draperies and bought meters of fabrics. There are bunch of terms that we first heard about textile's stuff (especially for the cotton). It could be counted in scorching sun interesting experiences.
And something about the make up. I was into smokey eyes, black lips, and black dresses for a while and go to some parties with them (Obviously without the black lips. I am not a rocker freak or Gothic girl). But then something happened so I decided to move on. I actually wanted to try red lips but when I looked the mirror, I saw a 78 years old version of injured Gwen Stefani. So me and red lips are done.
Anyway, I am making a list about what I want to do before I die. I plan to make it a hundred and share it.
This time I'd like to share a trip to Hobbiton, The Lord of the Ring and The Hobbit movie set.
It is located on Matamata, North Island.
This place was built in a real farm and it was used for the hobbit's village in the film.
The view is incredible and exactly like in movie.
The houses are so cute. Some of the houses are big and others are small. SO this is the interesting fact. They filmed the small houses for giants and other big creatures so they will seem big, and the big houses for the hobbits so they will seem small. In fact, they have human size. So one scene was probably filmed in different times.
Ant there is another thing you must know. The houses just can be looked from the outside because there is nothing inside. The inside was filmed in a studio in Wellington.
But still, this is a MUST place to visit when you go to New Zealand. It's awesome and very New Zealand. You won't see greener grass than this place (from my experience). I've got nothing to regret about visiting this place.
