The Making of that Kawaii M&M's TiaraBow for Rainbowholic!

☆ Early Christmas Giveaway Time! ☆
from Rainbowholic Kailachan!
... together with Tiara by Tracy Dizon

Actually, I wanted to make my dear-soul-sista, Kailachan a matching dress or at least make a "Tracy Dizon Creation" especially for her. Kaila has been a lovely and a fun muse of mine in making those fun and kawaii creations. Ever since I've launched my TiaraBows (Tiara by Tracy Dizon), she has been one of the loyal supporters and believers of my creations... Kaila has been a ray of light and a big source of positivism. Especially this year, I'm so glad that despite the distance, we have grown even closer.


We share a lot of things we appreciate silly "Gurltalks"  ~ from kawaii things, Tokyo fashion stories to making fun of our BF's together (~ well mostly me ranting LOL). I  think I feel a sense of comfort with Kailachan since we both love kawaii things and we both are in an LDR. More so, we share a lot of dreams and just spreading the kawaii virus all over the universe! Haha! I always look forward to my Tokyo trips (not only to visit my kareshi) but to have a date with Kaila... It's more fun to hang-out with Kailachan in Tokyo!  I really hope next time I visit Tokyo, it would be for a much longer time!

I'm such a big fan of Kailachan's Rainbowholic Blog since we've met I always visit every now and then because it's always so cute and fun... (I had a much slower laptop then so  her blog takes long to load haha) Reading her blog has got me smiling in few of my saddest and loneliest times especially when I'm feeling I'm missing Japan very much. This is why I wanted to be a part of her colorful blog and her projects in anyway I can... So this is why I'm so excited to be a part of ☆ Rainbowholic's Early Christmas Giveaway ☆ ! It's such a joy to be part of her colorful life and colorful blog!  Somehow inspired me to share a little piece of my life too! Kaila is one of my design muse that inspires me to make happy and fun creations even more... Actually, at first I wanted to design this previous fashion illustration I've made for Kailachan... But the dotted-pastel-tulle fabrics were already long sold-out so I couldn't make it anymore. Hope I miraculously find them!
June 2012~ My First Rainbowholic Design! Don't worry we will make this someday, Kaila!


Instead, I thought about making her a special edition TiaraBow. Since most TiaraBows are candy-inspired... I really enjoyed naming each of TiaraBow with different flavors I can think of!

thought of making Ms.Rainbowholic the most colorful candy inspiration I know... What can be more colorful than those M&M' Chcolate Candies? (May be Life Savers? Nerds? Haha!) How I wish I can find those quirky fabric prints that will match my design idea!
My Design Mood Board making those M&M's TiaraBows for Rainbowholic!


Now the next challenge is finding the right fabric. It's the most critical part of in this design process since the fabric will define the design mood. Luckily, I found the right one fit for the design!

Life Savers TiaraBows? May be? what do you think?
At first I even attempted to create a Life Savers TiaraBow since it's packaging looks more  like a "Rainbow" but I couldn't find the right fabric fit for it. All I can find were Filipino Traditional Fabrics for Patadyong... So it doesn't look like a rainbow at all! >_<

Patadyong Fabrics! Epic Fail!! Not a rainbow fabric!

But after sourcing and scouting, I luckily found the right fit for the M&M's TiaraBows! I was so ecstatic to find these polka-dotted cuties! I even remember showing it to Kaila right when I found it!

My design notes with that M&M's 

I got it from a fabric store that prints their own designs. (Sumimasen no photos because it was not allowed) I didn't realize the yardage would be too small ~ just 45" Width. I thought I'll be able to make 10 pieces or so... But I only got to make less... After a week I came back right away to that fabric store and the M&M Fabric was already sold out! Whaaa! I didn't realize it would be such a rare fabric to look for! I hope they make that fabric again!! But I'm so happy to make this for Kailachan!

M&M's TiaraBow for Rainbowholic!

Together with my special fascinators for NHK World Kawaii International Host, Misha Janette, my kareshi brought those M&M TiaraBows back to Tokyo after his short trip for my BIG 30 Birthday last October. They were all special package ~ my kareshi even hand-carried them in flight to secure their good condition. (brought with love and care LOL)

Taka, Tracy and Atreyu
October 29, 2012 ~ NAIA Terminal 2 Departure Area ~ Taka was so helpful with handling my creations to Tokyo for my kawaii muses: Kaila and Misha Janette! Itterashai Taka! 
I have to thank my kareshi for helping a lot in handling my creations, he even hand carried my hatboxes so it won't be damaged. I'm so happy that my pieces are well loved! Haha! After a few weeks, it finally arrived to Kailachan!
