I love this entire outfit from Heavy Red. There is no way I would EVER feel comfortable wearing the top (the Body Image Demons start clearing their throats at the mere idea), but it’s gorgeous.
Someday I will get that skirt.

This comic is perfect. PERFECT. Including the KILL IT WITH FIRE reaction. I know it’s an unreasonable reaction, but it’s what goes through my head.

Citing horror films and death/black metal as major influences,the work also reflects an interest in antiquity, the occult, and medical pathology. Obtaining his BFA in sculpture from MSU Bozeman, MT, his sculptures have been shown throughout the Northwest and are in private collections nationally.

BPAL Only Lovers Left Alive reviews, day 3!

JUNE 23, 1868Heady, swooningly romanic, with a touch of youthful love. The floral notes smell as if they are silvered by moonlight reflecting on dew, while the tonic, tobacco absolute, and bourbon vanilla creep out over time, preserving the floral bouquet through the years.

FUNNEL OF LOVEThis smells like a wall of fuzztone guitars sound. Sharp, dizzying, and almost dissonant at first, but the notes of pepper and jasmine bloom out to echo over the baseline of leather and patchouli. The cardamom bud and green coriander give sharp bursts of static, and the red vegetal musk oscillates through it all.

WOODEN BULLET: Bitter dark wood, with a metallic overlay. You would think that a scent with wood notes would eventually turn warm, but this doesn’t. The wood becomes deeper and darker, but never warm. The brass adds a glimmer of light to the scent, but stays cold and metallic. It’s lovely, but in some way remote.

…heh!

In less than 12 hours, we’ve sold 52% of the originally planned stock of Dracula.

…When this post started, that number was 48%. We’ll see what we can do about extending the numbers, but hesitation is not going to favor you.

Thank you everyone.

It’s going to be magnificent. Process sketches will start coming in a few days. We’re working incredibly hard on this one (not that we ever slack off, but… <tears open turtleneck> DRACULA!!)

(it’s available here)

And now to answer questions about the hat

hemonsterintheglass said: Where did you get that hat???

The hat itself was a present from dbvictoria, and I added all the tulle, feathers, ribbons, and resin bird skull. (In my house, resin bird skulls are just one more thing in the craft supplies. Mostly thanks to dammitkoi.) My other giant sunhats have come from thrift stores and places like K-Mart or Sears. Always check those places for wide-brimmed black hats to decorate!

missleliel said: You look fabulous, but I can’t help but wonder how it fits in your car? Petticoats are hard as is!

If whatever hat I’m wearing causes problems for the driver, I take it off and hold it in my lap until we reach our destination. But most of the time, my hats fit just fine in the car. 

Soooo, if I start another hat project (I just unearthed another Big Black Hat from the Storage Heap Room o’ Doom, I take it that I should remember to snap step-by-step photos and post a tutorial to Gothic Charm School?

Because I need to say this every so often

I am INCREDIBLY blessed with wonderful friends. Thank you, every single one of you.

(And if you’re wondering if I am talking about you: Yes. Yes I am, with huge amounts of joy.)

Robert Smith, being adorable.

Three gorgeous bustle dresses. These ladies will have need of the article I found this picture in :—How to Sit in a Victorian Bustle Dress
Found HERE

Giggling because, how many of us can identify* at least one of “these ladies”…?  And those better than me could also give a source for the photo.
*Or possibly are *waves to gothiccharmschool *

Oh hey! That&#8217;s from the Convergence 13 tea party! The other two ladies are Vienna la Rouge and Madame Kat. 
(&#8220;Bustlepunk&#8221;? Sure, why not.)
(Convergence 13 is where I acquired the nickname of &#8220;CupcakeGoth&#8221;, because one of the other attendees had a poor memory for names, but if she said &#8220;You know, CupcakeGoth!&#8221;, everyone knew she was referring to me.)
