New Theme (sort of holiday related)!

I remember Heisui wrote a post a few months ago about choosing the right theme, and I was thinking about how much I usually dread changing themes. So I’m also quite surprised the last one was only up for about 5-6 months? (Especially when I actually paid for it argh.) I have this problem where I would look at the demo and think – wow this looks great and really different! But then once I actually sit down and figure out how I want the site to look, it will start to morph into something rather different (which defeats the purpose of having this ‘special’ looking theme in the first place.)

 

Anyway, despite my hate for theme changing I stumbled upon this one and really liked it (plus it’s free!) so I just thought it’s time for a new look. Not sure about this two sidebars thing but it’s possible to get rid of it later if need be. Only did a couple of bigger changes – first was to add some kind of polka dot header/bar but after poking around things for a while (and still failing) so the menu now has the background instead. Hope the text is readable! I guess the second major change is the rotating banner, or just making banners in general. >< That one is a work in progress.

 

I just realised I forgot to take a screenshot of the last theme. At least Gravatar did it for me HAHAHA.

 

As a sidenote, was going through some stills for Marry or Not and wow… so many great pics of Xiu Jie Kai!!! Also liked this black and white one a lot…

 

 

And because they’re the cutest, I need to save all the pics from this function because of all the prettiness!

    Wow I was surprised by your new theme because I wasn’t expecting it this early! Anyways yay for Christmas colors!! 😀 I guess you really like polka dot patterns? O_O If you ever want another header for your rotating headers I could make one for you hehe. *W*

    I like the 2 sidebars on the home page. Maybe if there were 2 sidebars on the actual post pages then that would be a bit too much. But I think it’s fine on the homepage.

    I like your new theme! (: It’s very pretty and christmas-y! Getting into the christmas spirit already, huh? I dread changing themes too! It looks good on the demo but then when you actually apply it to your blog, you dislike it.

    Yes to Bolin and Ivy! I really want to see Campus Confidential and watch Bolin play a shabby guy. Ahaha! But he is one hot shabby guy!
