OOTD | VAMP

Everything in this outfit screams vampy to me. From my brand new love – the Anita lipstick by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics – to this beautiful skirt I found in the back of my closet. It’s been far too long since I wore velvet! I’ll keep this post short and sweet, because I feel like this […]

OOTD | BACK TO SCHOOL

This outfit of the day happened to turn out very “back to school” styled, which is well timed because I’m about to go back to University myself. I’ve enrolled in all my classes and have started frothing over all the books I get to read (I’m studying the Romantics this semester!). This is an outfit […]

OOTD | BASIC

Can you believe my favorite part of this outfit is the plain black singlet? Now, I’m not as fond of wardrobe basics as many people tend to be. I’d much rather buy something velvet, leopard print or floral. But this singlet really changed by perspective on basic staples and jersey. To be honest, when I […]

OOTD | FRANKENSTEIN

Okay, so this sfx look didn’t go to plan. It looks more like I’m shedding my skin, than a Frankenstein look. Beware, you cannot sew super thin layers of latex! On the other hand I’m loving this outfit. It’s going to go into my “reuse” pile. Velvet? Check! Occult motif? Check! Beautiful leopard boots I’ve […]

OOTD | STITCHES

This didn’t begin as a look. I was testing out different ways to sew dried latex to create a “back alley surgery” kind of look while watching Chucky II. But I really liked how it turned out! What do you think? My dad was having pretty major surgery the same day. I was going to […]

OOTD | BURN

This October I’ve challenged myself to do an SFX gore look with every outfit I post! For the second outfit in this set I decided to go in the direction of A Nightmare on Elm Street. I did this look using only a sponge, fake blood and liquid latex. What do you think? I’m really […]

OOTD | GORE

What better way to welcome in October than with some fake gore? It’s only simple. This was only my second attempt at SFX makeup and I still have a load to learn. I used liquid latex, tissue paper, coagulated blood and my regular makeup to create them. Speaking of torture, this was a super awkward […]

OOTD | GRUNGE

Ah, grunge layers! I can’t speak more positively about grungy layers. They’re great for adding interest to the most basic of piece like a white singlet and black dress. I’m only popping in today, before I run back to some writing I’m working on. And by “working on” I mean it’s eating me alive. But […]

OOTD | OVERALLS

This post was originally titled “Clothes I Regret Buying” but a magical thing happened. I had just finished photographing my velvet bell-bottoms (they’re great pajamas) and had changed into these overalls when I realised they’re actually pretty wonderful. It was a change of heart I’d never seen coming. Maybe these overalls were just waiting around […]
