Status Update 2015

When I look back at 2014, I realized I had some fabulous ensembles I threw together. I also had some awesome photographers capture my photo. Although these photos weren’t taken for the purposes of posting them to my blog, I wanted to post some of my favorite outfits, looks and photos from my 2014.

I don’t just “get dressed…” I create ART!

Goth is Dead!

Ugh, when will all these goth kids GET IT?! Goth is DEAD! 😉 Just like punk is dead, emo is dead, disco is dead, skater is dead, Lolita is dead, and blah blah blah. But guess what…? I dress how I want!

What’s that? I’m invited to Bat’s Day at Disneyland? Well of course I’d love to go! Any excuse to play dress up! I wanted to explore the newest form of Gothic styling known as “pastel Goth” which basically includes all the lovely shades of black and rich textures; but features touches of soft pastel colors. All the cool kids seem to be doing it, so I wanted to be cool too.

batsday

A day filled with laughs, waiting in lines, giggling, photo taking, booze, more laughing and aching legs due to wearing brand new leather platforms to a giant amusement park. Although I don’t label myself as Gothic (or ever claimed to be “Goth”) I do adore Gothic fashion. Bat’s Day is a spectacular day to see all forms of Gothic styling from classy, really high end Victorian gowns to Hot Topic punk kids. Of course there is still a presence of mainstream public, so Bat’s Day is quite the interesting spectacle for those unaware of this special gathering.

This is Halloween.

Another day of the year for me to dress up. I love it!

This year I didn’t have an actual “costume” I just threw a bunch of stuff together to create a look. Sort of a hippie, gypsy, gothic tribes woman sort of deal. I nicknamed this look: Diamond Sinclair.

 

A few of my favorite Halloween moments from this year…

Top photo: My dear friend Lisa is now… a ZOMBIE!!!

Middle photo: Willow giving us the best La Llorona.

Bottom photo: Andrea monitoring the halls and writing people up. (The wig was not an original part of her costume, but was added later due to the pure hilarity of it.)

I hope your Halloween was filled with fantastic costuming, candy and memories!

Halloweens Past.

A few of my past looks for Halloween:

Back in 2006, I went for the late, great Steve Irwin (aka The Crocodile Hunter!)  who had just been killed a few weeks prior. Complete with my Australian beer and crocodile partner, I went on to win a few contests that year. One of my best costumes EVER.

In 2009 I went for a tamed down version Jessica Rabbit. I was working with what I already had, so I thought it came together well.

Again working with what I had, so I channeled the infamous, beautiful Marilyn in 2010. For the night’s festivities I made sure to be extra unstable and erratic in the true Marilyn fashion. One party I went to as regular, gorgeous Marilyn and the other I went as zombified Marilyn.

When you get dressed up as often as I do, Halloween almost seems like any other day of the year… The difference is on Halloween nobody questions me. 😉
