Ghostly being

Last weekend I was at the Horror and Tease show by Tampere Burlesque! It was kind of a Halloween burlesque-, drag-, sideshow show! I had a blast and I got to bust out my Halloween costume for the first time this year! Hopefully I will have a few more chances to wear it since it was really fun to step out of my comfort zone by wearing no black at all.

It took me a bunch of time to put this outfit together, I started gathering it months ago. I also had white contact lenses for it.. But well I had never worn contact lenses before and I kinda forgot to practice on putting them on and taking them out so I just decided not to use them that night. They are 1 year lenses though, so if I care for them properly, I will have plenty of time to practice and make use of them!

Wig - Ebay
Shirt - RQ-BL, Ebay
Skirt - Ebay
Shoes - Pleaser Exotica ,Boutique LouLou
Socks - Punanaamio
Tights - Ebay
Gloves - Boutique LouLou

 I had a whole bunch of compliment on my costume that night and I was so unprepared for it. Oh why must I be so socially awkward. We went to a burger king after the party and it was kinda interesting with all the drunk people out there. It was kinda funny to see how much more people react to this all white outfit. It was so much more than how people react to me when I dress up normally. Which could just be this same outfit in all black.

I just really want to do this outfit and add black accents to it. Like black eyeliner and black belt or corset, black bracelets.. Just to play around with it as a every day outfit for fun.

Also the bag is from Killstar! It was very difficult to find a bag that was white and still a bag I could wear with everyday clothing too. But I think I found it! Still think I really want this bag in black too!
I have been let down by Killstar in quality quite a few times, but I was pleasantly surprised when I got this bag! I have really no complaints about it yet.

Here are some pictures from some of the shows. They were all amazing. I can't even decide on a favorite. I had my boyfriend with me and he took all of the pictures this evening and he did a nice job! I had gloves on and I really just wanted to focus on the show that night anyway.

I deliberately chose pictures what would not spoil anything from any one's show. They were truly astounding and worth seeing live. 

It was a really fun event and hopefully I get to attend next year as well! I also very much recommend it for everybody! Music was good, atmosphere was good, the host was brilliant.. what's not to like.

Waiting for Samhain

Summer is pretty much over and here comes Fall! I have already busted out all my pumpkins and even picked up a few new ones! Can't wait for next week when I get to go to Tampere and so some Halloween themed shopping.

Here is a little glimpse of my bookcase! There's a bunch more occult/paranormal/witchcraft etc books elsewhere, but they are not very organized. 

For a small project I have had this new vest under construction. I'm still not sure if it's done. I don't have all my crafts stuff here yet so I might have some more different studs to add. Chains maybe? Suggestions?

I have a big Munsters patch at the back I tried to  take a decent picture but Nipsu had some other ideas. What a cam whore. All of the patches in this vest are from etsy. In my last vest I painted most of the patches myself, but I have run out of my home made patches and it's such a time consuming thing that I just thought fuck dat. 
The shops the patches are form are TheCellarPatches, EvilThreadPatches and neoshiki.  If you want some good patches for yourself

I finally got my kittie home. Though I have been worried about him a lot since we split him and the other cat Pippuri from each other in the break up. He seems fine though, he just needs someone to play with him every day since he's very playful. We are thinking about getting a friend for him later on.

I have this picture on top of our tv since I do find myself missing Pippuri every once in a while. 

As for other live updates. I have my halloween costume all planned out! Some of the things I ordered for if have yet to arrive but I'm hoping they come in time. Next week on the weekend, me any my boyfriend are planning on a trip to Tampere to a Horror and tease Show! A halloween party with a whole bunch of burlesque, drag and sideshows! I'm hoping on wearing my costume then! There's also a halloween party my friend is throwing but it kinda overlaps with Sexhibition so we don't really know where we are going.

Also super excited! My boyfriend and his friends rented out a big space near us where we can fix and restore cars! So immediately I jumped on the phone and bought my other dream car form my dad! It's a Volkswagen Transporter (T2). It's quite not the Hippie bus, well it looks pretty much exactly like the iconic hippie bus except the front end is somewhat different. Google it if you want. Or wait for pictures of it when we get it hauled over. It needs work, and I have never restored a car before, but luckily my boyfriend is there to guide me every step of the way. 
My plans are to turn it in to a some sort of camper van, at the moment the back is empty, so it's a good clean slate. Maybe I'll paint the car black, put a roof rack on it? We shall see! So I'm sorry there is just going to be some pictures of it along the way! 

I also started inktober! For the first time ever, I'm hoping on getting all the way through it!
