Strap Me Up

There is a reason why elastic harnesses are having such a moment. They are soft and stretchy, add a finished look to your outfit, can be worn with all kinds of different tops and dresses for different looks, and deal with that ‘I need something on my neckline but necklaces look shit’ dilemma.

After trawling Etsy for ages, these are the two I have decided on.

Liquid Ladies

I’ve got a real thing for wetlook after buying some awesome club wear in the fabric. It’s soft and washes well but looks fetish-y and striking.

While exploring a post with suggestions for cool sites with plushy girl wear, I came across this gorgeous and well-priced treasure:

Glorious Topper

So for my competitive steampunk outfit, I wanted to wear a top hat, but I figured it would be too hot for dancing and would squash my hair.

After an extensive Etsy search, I decided on this beauty which is attached to a headband for both security and head aeration:

So next goth night is ‘steampunk’ themed. That’s not really my jam, but I’m kind of competitive so I’ve been putting together a goth steampunk outfit.

Corsets also usually aren’t my thing … I ride my bike to club night and then dance all night, so freedom of movement is kind of important.

But I also really want to nail this outfit.

This was cheap enough that I won’t be heartbroken if it’s not great:

I also found a choker that I suppose I could conceivably wear again:

This is made for arrows, but I thought it might work as as holster for my longest dick sword (spoiler: it doesn’t):

La Petit Mort

I need a 30s journalist’s outfit for reasons (okay, it’s a super awesome murder mystery night where you go in character). I’m not really willing to spend to much on it as I wouldn’t wear a shirt or suit again.

Here are my bargain selections:

A collar bib so I can get the shirt look under a cozy jumper:

Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 8.37.05 pm

 

An on-sale fedora that I can totally re-use for a costume for Sven:

Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 8.37.51 pm

 

This isn’t for the murder mystery event, but I haven’t worn black lipstick since I was a teenager and now it’s in lipgloss!

Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 8.41.27 pm

 

This was on sale and I’ll cut it up to make something:

It’s clearly not just a phase. That I was wearing colours just a couple of years ago seems very strange to me now.

Anyhow, I figure I’m just going to embrace all the gothy goodness.
