REVIEW | STAR BLOOD BY RED QUEEN + INTERVIEW WITH ELENA VLADI

The nu-metal band Red Queen, fronted by the gorgeous model and singer Elena Vladi, have just released their newest album called Star Blood. Now, metal may not be my favourite genre, but when I fired up some of their free tracks (that you can find on the front page of their website here) I couldn’t help but be flung into nostalgia fueled memories of the music I listened to when…

THE HORROR BOX | WISHLIST

In case you don’t know, I’m a horror fan and a half. What am I talking about, how could you not know? As such, lately I’ve been obsessively looking into horror boxes. The thing about mystery boxes that gets me, is that you never know whether the box is worth the price. You know, worth the price in your life. The Horror Block is my current top runner, but I…

OOTD | GHOST ADVENTURES

Finally, the semester is over and I’m back to this whole blogging thing! This outfit is pretty simple, but it’s a combination I’ve been wearing a lot lately. Oh, and do you notice anything different about me? I’m in the middle of growing out my undercut and have been experimenting with “normal” hair styles. What do you think? This beautiful cemetery, that I have featured before in past outfits, is…

Bare with me while I get used to taking photos in my new apartment. Although, it’s promising that we live right down the road from my favourite old-timey graveyard – how cool is that?

But I’m obcessed with watching tutorials and videos by some online personalities that are far from beginners! Here are my favourite YouTube Special FX artists that create amazing tutorials on how to transform yourself into a monster! We all need…

3 Steps to a Shopping Detox (and a Happier Closet)

Here are some practical steps I’ve inadvertently taken that have made me happier with my closet and hopefully they’ll work for you! Clothing and identity come hand in hand. Which means that sometimes we feel the pressure of fitting into which ever subculture we follow, or to staying up to date – that doesn’t just mean following trends but consuming because we’re “bored” or “unhappy” with our current closet. But…

What better way to welcome myself back into blogging than with a new post in my Alt Update series! I’ve successfully moved into my new place, but in the meantime I’ve been spending a lot of time trawling Facebook and other sites for spooky posts and alternative news. This time around we have: Where My Goths At? It’s a question anyone in the subculture has probably unironically asked before. This…

HOW TO GROW OUT AN UNDERCUT in THEORY

Don’t tell anyone, but lately I’ve been thinking about growing out my undercut. I’ve had this undercut/sidecut/half mohawk kind of haircut for eight years now. Although it maybe sound silly, my hair has become a huge part of myself. Hair is a really emotional thing. We spend years growing it, hundreds of dollars taking care of it, and put careful consideration into any new style we want. Especially when it…
