I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Child’s Play: BYG Belle
Makeup by Jael Magbanua
I won’t discuss about my makeup in details anymore, because I’m not knowledgeable about the process of getting that look. Forgive me for my ignorance about cosmetics and how to apply it. I hope you don’t mind. I’m quite sure you know better than I do. LOL!
What I Wore:
Lace Top: Ozoc (Japanese Brand)
Inner Tank: Secret Possessions
Skirt: Gaisano Mall Dep’t Store
Connector Rings & Hoops: Thrifted
Bangles: borrowed from Ali Altizo
Wonder what’s BYG? It’s an acronym for Black, Yellow and Gray. I would make use of the Black-and-Yellow theme, except that my black shoes was borrowed by my sister for her thesis defense that day, and I don’t want to use my black boots either. My style for today’s Child’s Play is something that can somehow give reverence to the dark angel adorned in the most romantic of fabrics – LACE. This isn’t a gothic drama, by the way. I’ll be setting aside that Ange Sombre motif for our next fashion and makeup shoot.
And oh… just a brief history about that outfit. I thank God for letting my creative juices out when I need it the most. Why, because that bow lace top is actually my first DIY creation. That chiffon ribbon is from another garment, but I removed it because I felt like I want to embellish it to a top that deserves that cute detail more. How do you like it, folks? Now about my mustard yellow skirt, I’ve had it in my wardrobe for five years already. I got it way back senior high. It’s the first fashion item I bought for myself.
