The Lady’s Guide to Adventure

lady's guide to adventure mountains woods folk midcentury vintage linen 50s handmade

With spring already grazing us and summer right around the corner, this is the perfect timing to go out on an adventure. I put together a few things you might like to think of. Also, please try avoiding trash by reusing bottles and tupperware – and don’t throw your waste just into the nearest shrub.

Where and when to go.
Be spontaneous. Personally I prefer sunshine and warm weather, but of course with a rain coat and solid shoes walking around in the mud is fairly easy. While during summer months the forecast is fairly reliable, so you can plan when to go. However, I would also suggest taking the chance when perfect weather comes around. Living in an area close to a lot of mountains and woods, I can take pretty much every local train or public transport to get to pretty places. If this is not the case, make a list of places that are easy to reach by public transport or bike (personally I think taking a car is a bit of a cheat, but of course you can). If you live in a city, check the surrrounding area for public woods, national parks, lakes or mountains. And then just go, that is the most important part. Don’t put it off.

What to take with you.
Well, I will write a seperate post about this sooner or later, I do want to mention a couple of things. Having too much things with you – no matter if in your backpack or in your life – makes things more complicated, yet there are things that are very worth carrying. Besides food and a bottle of water, I do recommend a raincoat or umbrella if the weather should indeed change. One of the most annoying things while hiking sure are too thin or wet socks – pack a second pair. Even if only on the way back home, you will be glad about them. Same goes for bandaids and sunscreen – you do not expect sunburn and sore feet, but better to be prepared than sorry.

What to wear.
You know me, I’m not exactly a person to dress most appropriate for nature – or at least what we consider appropriate now. After all women used to wear dirndls and shoes like these to climb mountains a few decades ago still. As long as they are comfortable to you and good to clean, wear whatever you like. Wear something that is comfortable, not too heavy and not too light. I recommend linen and depending on temperature two or three layers – maybe a cardigan or an aditional scarf.

What to do.
I would also bring a journal and a couple of pens as well as some pens – collect flowers and leaves (only the ones not protected by nature protection, of course), make sketches and write thoughts down. Take photos – maybe even analog ones. Take risks (within reason) – maybe take another path, take analog photos only even though they might not turn out well. Of course, depending on whether you walk on your own or with other people, you might want to pack different things – a card game, perhaps. For the journey with the train and maybe once you reach your destination, pack a book. And if you forget something or don’t want to bring anything – just enjoy nature in all its beauty.
Last but not least: run down the hills like Judy Andrews did in The Sound of Music!

now, eventually you might have dinosaurs on your dinosaur tour, right?

As a somewhat creative person one of my favourite things to do is put together outfits that create characters, I talked about this before, in aventures extraordinaires, I think. I am not really a painter or a writer, I do both on the occasion, but in general I prefer to admire other people’s work. However I think with sewing and outfits I can indeed express my creativity. And as mentioned above, create entire personalities. Recently (with me getting rid of a lot of stuff and now going to my things section by section) I went through my jewellery and rediscovered old treasures – bracelets and necklaces that were “lost” under all the other things I never wear. In my opinion especially those last little touches can convey so much.

With this outfit – since I knew I was going to the botanical garden – I opted for Jurassic Park tourist (in a weird 90s+50s mixup universe, apparently), which probably means I would get eaten by a dinosaur, but okay. As I want to be a paleaontologist I’d be amazing to see dinosaurs in real life, but in a way it is also very charming that all we know about them is due to science and people’s fantasy – I don’t know if you’ve ever looked up dinosaur paintings made in the 19th century, but it’s a like a wonderfully strange dream, and I highly recommend doing that. Don’t get me wrong I also enjoy paintings of dinosaurs nowadays, and we have Jurassic World two coming out this year, so let’s see how that goes.

Though, as long as I only get to see dinosaurs in art and museums, I gladly will take that. Geological museums are always surprisingly calming to the topics they cover – tectonic shifts, vulcanos and dinos, so it is always a pleasure to go there. Botanical Gardens, too, are often overlooked by people without kids, in my opinion greenhouses have such a lovely atmosphere, a bit shabby and vintage, just very charming and relaxed. Nevertheless it is fun to pretend you’re following dinosaurs on your way through undiscovered parts of the world (even though my favourite ones are archaeopteryx and pterodactyl – they fly, and I don’t).
Also, I am now uloading my phots to flickr, I still have to work everything out, but the posts in January will be a mix of pictures on wordpress and flickr – so plase bare with me (presumably) messing up a lot.

Day Trip: Kochel am See

Kochel am See Kochelsee wanderlust
Wednesday I took the train to Kochel and decided to walk around for a while. The village itself is quite cute, but I actually wanted to run through fields and woods. Well, I did not want to actually hike, because the weather wasn’t perfect, just get out and walk around like I did on Holmenkollen. However as it turned out the way towards the Franz Marc Museum was beautiful and I walked there (in the woods, mainly), but the way alond the lake was also along a street… So after enjoying the artwork in the museum when I decided to just walk a bit longer, it really wasn’t perfect. Nevertheless, it was lovely, even though it would have been better without the street… But I met four cat, so my day way complete and I actually saw a lot of beautiful flowers and places.

While I was considering naming this post Sugar, we’re going down swinging for the sole reason that I currently listen to old Fall Out Boy albums – and who could blame me? They are amazing -, I thought this fit a lot better. Yesterday I went to Kochel (will posta a few photos of the town and my walk later), because sometimes I just want to get out and wander. You know, I miss Holmenkollen a lot (will blog about that, too), because it was perfect for wandering around. The air was chilly and it was very calming to me.

Then again, I think wandering alone always helps me to sort my thoughts and makes me feel a lot better. If something is up, going out into nature helps me, focus on what is important and go through all the aspects. Living in a city, I usually have to take the train (there are parks, but I also love to take the train and really get out in that way too) to get somewhere to wander about. I love staying home, reading and watching tv shows, but these trips also feel very special as well.

Since I live in Bavaria there are tons of lakes and mountains around and since I am getting into hiking and all this stuff, I really want to visit a few more of the mountains – well, I went to lot of them as a kid, but I want to visit them once more. Obviously this dress is the perfect dress to hike/wander – while I’d usually prefer a pair of pants, this dress truly is quite nice. Also, I think it looks a lot like a dress young girls back in the day would have worn to stroll through the woods/mountains. It’s no Sissi dress, but close enough to what I feel like might be a 40s wanderer dress. And it made me enjoy my “hike” even more, especially since back home a woman told me I’d look unearthly beautiful, which caught me really of guard and was so cute of her.

Fabrics & Second-Hand | Shopping in Augsburg

Augsburg Shopping Fabrics Thrift Second-Hand
As I mentioned in the post about visiting Augsburg, they have amazing fabric stores and of course I wanted to visit my favourite one. So, that is what I’m showing you today, alongside some more things I found in this lovely town.

Augsburg Shopping Drugstore
Just after arriving I had to go to the drugstore, because I wanted a small deodorant for travelling. However as it turns out, this one is really dry and powdery, literally dust came of my armpit after appling this. The lasher were just because I really wanted to have some falsies again.

Augsburg Shopping Vintage Shirt Blouse
I also went to a thrift/vintage (Vinty’s) store where they sell second-hand stuff for a few euros and some of the profit goes to a good cause. This blouse is vintage, I’d say midcentury, but I’m not quite sure. However it goes very well with my skirts.

Augsburg Shopping Shirt Blouse
I also found this rather new shirt by a London fabricant and since I was looking for cute shirts, I tried it on and got it. It has a very summery feel to it due to the colour.

Augsburg Shopping Bee Pin
I also found this DLV (which I guess is Deutscher Landwirtschaftsverband/German Agricultural Union) Pin and since I love bees, I just had to get it.

Augsburg Shopping Fabric
As mentioned above I wanted to buy some fabrics, I got six different ones, all very beautiful, but I was a little too stinted and so I’m afraid it might be just a bit too little of each one. We will see, I guess there will be some new additions to my wardrobe shown in my handmade update this month. For the mint on with the triangles I had a project in mind the moment I saw it (it is one of my 2017 projects, but I was still looking for the fabric), the other ones just spoke to me and I could not resist.

Augsburg Shopping Fabric

Augsburg Shopping Mary Shelley Frankenstein
Last thing: I went to a few bookstores, but eventually got a Penguin edition of Frankenstein. I never read the book, but I heard good things about it and it’s said to be quite the feminist and scifi steppingstone, so it was on the list anyway. Also, gothic stores are right up my alley.

What do you think abou the fabrics? Where do you get yours?

Day Trip: Augsburg

Augsburg
I think we often miss to appreciate where we live, the beauty that not only cities and countries far away harbour, but also those only a few minutes or an hour away. Augsburg is very close to where I live and I just love that city a lot, it’s so cute and beautiful. A lot of old buildings are still there and since the city developed due to textile production there are also some amazing fabric stores left, my favourite is the Augsburger Restehaus. Well, I just adore this lovely city and I love wandering around those tiny streets, especially since there aren’t a lot of cars.

The last time I have been to Augsburg was quite a while agon, but it was at least as lovely as I remembered it and I’m really glad I decided to go on this little city trip. It’ was a very spontaneus decision – I bought the train tickets the night before. It made me spend a lovely day (it was the second of March, about two weeks ago) since it was very sunny and I was successful at fabric (and vintage) shopping. However, that was not the only thing, I also found out that Augsburg had a great Natural History Museum (Naturmuseum), you probably would not find it, if you did not know it, but it’s so worth visiting. They have fossils, modells, crystalls, all that stuff. I mean, I want to stuff palaentology, so I had a lot of fun looking at all the bones – especially the teeth really got to me. And the moths (who would have guessed THAT?). So if you are in or near Augsburg, visit this fantastic museum.

If you are looking for fabrics on the other hand, just walk through the small streets and along the Lech, I really like the Augsburger Restehaus, because they have lots and lots of fabric and really special novelty prints for that. But there are a lot of small little fabric stores with all sorts of textiles, so it’s probably the best city here to go to if you want to buy fabric.

This year I really want to try and travel not only to Scandinavia, but also to places near my home, just sit on the train for less than two hours and explore the beautiful landscape my home offers – sort of a project home, if you wish. Also, like visiting all the castels of Ludwig II with my best friend last year (see Neuschwanstein/Hohenschwangau, Herrenchiemsee).

The dress to me has such a japanese, geisha vibe, it’s so beautiful with all the flowers and really matches the flowers in the gardens. It also really reminds of the one Pushing Daisies episode where they visit the Sushi/Poker place. It’s one of my favourite episodes dress-wise. And Miss Fisher sometimes goes for Asian (inspired) dresses, as well and they always look gorgeous. But, to be honest, I think japanese fashion – be it traditional or modern is very intersting. Of course, that’s also because it’s quite different from western fashion with the prints alone. But too, with the cuts, they are very distinct.

I never really got into Lolita, though I think it’s a beautiful fashion style. Of course, as someone who has never been to Japan, I can only rely on the feeling I get from travel diaries and documentaries, but I feel like in the big cities at least, people tend to dress much more diverse than in most cities in Europe/US. You can draw a lot of inspiration from Japanese Brands and Street Fashion photographs and I love seeing the influences on western culture as well, to me that’s one of the pros of the internet that we can see what people in other countries like and get inspired by the way they stye certain things.

About a month ago, when there was a lot of snow here, where I live, my mum and I went out to take some photos, have a cup of tea and enjoy the wintery air. We did not know that there was a butterfly exhibition at our local botanical garden, but since we really enjoy these things and we were strolling atound the garden, we decided to have a look. And we were not disappointed, the butterflies and moths living there are flying around and eating and it’s such a lovely, calm atmosphere even though there obviously are quite a few kids.

If you follow my Instagram feed you probably know that I love going to the museum and especially the last couple of months were filled with trips to the museum. A lot of these trips were to the Neue Pinakothek in Munich which features 19th (and a bit 18th) century art. And I love that so much, that was what got me into romantic art altogether. When I first went there this year – it had been years I think since I went there last – I fell in love with Carl Rottmann’s scenic paintings. Of course, Caspar David Friedrich was known to me – I guess he is one of the most famous painters of that time as his art is really representive of the romantic tropes. And I love his work, it’s fantastic and impressive. As is the work of Johan Christian Clausen Dahl, Morgen nach einer Sturmnacht is probably one of the most intense paintings I saw so far. It’s dark and pure, the focus is on the power of nature, but what touches me are the details, the young man and his dog being desperate, the orange. I coud spend hours in front of this painting.

Back to Carl Rottmann, his art is very present in Munich, as he was ordered to paint Greece scenic to have them displayed at the museum. And oppose to many other painters of his time he actually went to Greece and have a look at the landscape to portray it acurately. And while I have never been to Greece, I really feel like being at those historic places and that I want to go there. As someone who is very introverted (I’m over 90% introverted according to Myers Briggs) I need things that I can enjoy on my own when I’m exhausted from social interaction. And these artworks give my that opportunity.

When I look at these paintings I feel a certain sort of calming. A lot of things happens in these pictures with colours and details and the beauty of nature. I’m not much of a painter, I do some sketches and watercolours every once in a while, but I prefer enjoying other people’s work. The feeling these paintings give me are so intense yet calming, I think a lot about the details, technique and inspiration. That helps when I don’t feel too good and lifts me up. Usually I tend to think about a lot of things and when they boil up I cannot be around other people. It just is too much to bear, so I focus on other things instead, art is a great outlet for that. Especially landscapes of the 19th century are quite soothing when I’m anxious and uptight.

Last year in autumn or winter I started watching Tarantino movies, I think the only one (you know, of the official eight ones) I have not seen yet is Reservoir Dogs. I think Kill Bill is my favourite one, but Pulp Fiction is pretty darn close. Uma Thurman is one of my favourite actresses, no matter what character she plays, she’s just really versatile. And I love her work with Tarantino. Even though I have a slight preference for her character in Kill Bill, I love her look in Pulp Fiction.

I never snorted coke so I can’t say whether or not that impersonation is accurate. Nevertheless I think the pics look kind of cool, especially with the 50s diner background we found at Comic Con. The diner, Jack Rabbit Slim’s, Mia and Vincent visit is so amazing, I want Marily and Buddy Holly to be my waiters as well.

Comic Con Haul

Comic Con Haul
The Comic Con in Dortmund was my first ever Convention – there was a Japan festivale in Munich some years ago (I was probably about eleven or so) and did not really appreciate it. Now, going to Dortmund and all, I sure did appreciate it and bought a few things – within my budget luckily. Most of it is Star Wars, obviously.

Comic Con Patches
As additions to my denim jacket I got a Jurassic Park patch (much needed!) and a Dalek patch tht is a friendship patch with the friend who went with me.

Comic Con Cat Clip
CandyZombies is a shop I knew beforehand, from Instagram and etsy, so I was excited to see the creations in person and eventually I got mysef this cute little cat that looks like the Cheshire Cat.

Comic Con Earrings
When I saw the Millennium Falcon Earrings at NoxAurum, I was in love, so I got them and I’m really loking forward to wearing them with my matching dress.

Comic Con Alpaca White
I was debatting over getting this one a lot, because I had already gotten the apricot one below. But this one kind of got to me, his (her?) name is Alpacasso Kirarin Star and I got him from Manga-Mafia.

Comic Con Alpaca Apricot
I don’t recall the name of the shop where I got Alpacasso Pop’n Ribbon, but they only sold alpacas and other fluffy japanese toys. And I wanted a alpaca for the longest time, so I’m happy to finally own one.

Comic Con Star Wars Cap
I first saw the cap on Saturday, but did not get it, but after waiting to long I had to go to another shop, which was slightly more expensive (one or two euros), but the colourway is so beautiful – like a nerdy hipster cap. And I mean, I never wear caps, but I might as well start now. (Also, even though it looks blue, the cap is black).

Comic Con Jurassic Park Jacket
Jurassic Park became one of my favourite movies practically while I was watching it for the first time and Ellie Sattler is my aspiration in life. Also this jacket is beyong comfy and soft. I got both, the cap and the baseball jacket at the booth of cool2U.

Comic Con Rey BB8
I wanted to get some photos of good movies at comic con and I ended up getting various photos from only three different movies (if you count all Star Wars movies as one). The big one is Rey and BB8, of course.

Comic Con Star Wars Back to the Future Dirty Dancing Photo
Then I saw some of the eighties movies photos, like Dirty Dancing (including one for my Bestie) and Back to the Future. I also got another one from The Force Awakens, with BB8 and Poe Dameron and the most amazing pic of Leia. The way she tilts her head and this slightly sarcastic, presumptuous look on her face is the best. I’m really obsessed with this pic and think about framing it.

Comic Con BB8 Paintings
There were amazing artists at Comic Con, but I just decided to get the beautiful BB8 illustration by Martha Wernio. And it looks beautiful alongside all my prints at the sewing corner.

What conventions have you been to and what fandom things did you get?
