Anonymous asked: Are your glasses vintage, or is that kind of fabulousity readily available in modern stores?

Well, I bought the frames new at a modern store, but that was almost two decades ago, so I guess they count as vintage now? I’m always looking for another pair of similarly-styled frames, because I worry that eventually my optometrist won’t be able to replace the lenses in this pair. Or what if I lose them?!

But thank you for the nice comment! 

So pretty. 

So pretty.

Today your Auntie Jilli tried out this tutorial on making matte lip pencils from Lip Tars from Portrait of Mai. Why? Because while your Auntie Jilli loves the colors available from Lip Tar, the fiddly application process is not ideal, and nothing, NOTHING has kept the color from bleeding and smudging. But in lip pencil form? None of those problems! The color I’m wearing is Vintage plus a smidge of Black Dahlia.

(Ignore whatever it is my bangs are doing in those photos. I swear they were combed evenly before picture time.)

Oh this picture is too much.

This! This is wonderful. Atticus, darling, get the minions to finish the time machine, because I need to go back and see this production.

Some day, when I have achieved my fabulously wealthy eccentric goal, I will have outfits like this to wear as I wander through my haunted mansion.

Not-Goth

Eldergoth:
Hey are you coming out this weekend? I'm trying to figure out if it be worth it.
Postpunker:
No, you know I don't do well with Goths... except you, I mean.
Eldergoth:
What are talking about?!
Postpunker:
You know how I get stressed out. They wear a Dead Boys shirt they got at Hot Topic and tell me its a t shirt for an "old vampire movie."
Eldergoth:
No, no, I mean -really? for fuck's sake- what I mean is YOU are a Goth... right?
Postpunker:
No.
Eldergoth:
What?! Oh, come on! You wear a lot of black, you watch classic horror, you paint and write poetry, you're snarky-
Postpunker:
I guess I'm kind of an arty intellectual.
Cyber:
Hey, what are we talking about?
Eldergoth:
You are, right now, wearing a skeleton key necklace, all black clothing, and you have Talking Heads, The Fall, and Wire buttons and patches on your portfolio, we were JUST talking about Depeche Mode-
Postpunker:
None of those things make me a Goth, I'm sorry.
Eldergoth:
-but but but the eyeliner!
Postpunker:
No.
Cyber:
I'm wearing eyeliner!
Eldergoth:
It's yellow.
Postpunker:
I do like a lot about the whole Goth scene and all kinds of Gothic art but I just can't squeeze into that box. I'm not saying I'm better or worse than you; I'm just me. Honestly, I don't want to give up anything about myself to fit any group's mould. Do you understand?
Eldergoth:
That is soooooo hardcore Goth.
Postpunker:
THIS IS WHY YOU CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS! /storms away/
Cyber:
Elder. elder. Elder. elder. Elder, I'm Goth. I'll hang out with you!
Eldergoth:
Cyber:
/smiles/
Eldergoth:
So that Additall doesn't help you pay attention then?
Cyber:
IT HELPS ME DANCE-FIGHT INVISIBLE SLOWMO NINJAS!
Eldergoth:
/runs after Postpunker/ Don't leave me, Ian!

As you can imagine once I got a hold of a skeleton I took A LOT of photos, less than I would have liked actually. I will keep them to a minimum on tumblr because repetition gets boring, but you may find some variations popping up on my flickr eventually.

Everything by night, that’s the ticket. Nothing at noon; the sun is too bright, the shadows wait. The sky burns so nothing dares move. There is no fun in sunlit exposure. Midnight brings fun when the shadows under trees lift their skirts and glide. Wind arrives. Leaves fall. Footsteps echo. Beams and floorboards creak. Dust sifts from tombstone angel wings. Shadows soar like ravens. Before dawn, the streetlights die, the town goes briefly blind.

One of the minor perils of rewatching Hannibal episodes is that I start having the urge to shout "WHAT KIND OF CRAZY ARE YOU?",  à la Jack Crawford, at … well, anyone who’s around really. The RealHusband and the cats would not be as amused by this as I am. 

Oh goodness, a chibi version of Marlow from 30 Days of Night? Adorable! Unsettling yet adorable!
