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:

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

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!

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.

Sven has a raglan top that is his party staple, but it’s got a bit pilly and doesn’t look as sharp any more. This is my pick for a sexy replacement:

Also, there is no way an ASOS order is going to be a solo item, so:

Dita <3 <3 <3

I’m going to see Dita Von Teese in Sydney and need a suitably fabulous dress to wear.

It’s a nod to my vintage loving past but still suits my gothy sensibilities.

I’m about to go on holiday to Melbourne and I’m having the ‘I have nothing to wear’ crisis. I’ve decided that this top is just what I need:

Also, I’ve been looking at this dress for months and it’s just appealing for some reason:

All the major brands have discontinued their lip stain pens, which are the best, non-drying lip colours ever :(

Luckily, Stargazer makes them:
