Goth Hiking

I wanted some super comfy boots for tramping around Europe that would still work with my goth wardrobe.

Keen boots are consistently comfortable and long-lasting. Not cheap, but well worth the investment:

Fetish Party

I’m *really* into sexy outfits for parties. They are totally impractical since I can’t wear them most places but they make me feel like a fabulous goddess.

This one has a cage top and mesh skirt (insert own bra and panties):

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:

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.

CorgBot

Sven loves his zombiecorg shirt so much that he’s going to wear it out in no time. ‘Give a Fluff’ only release shirts in limited batches, and he liked this one, so I thought I’d better get an order in!

I got inspired after going to a few burlesque shows and seeing the gentleman wearing wonderful glam Chinese satin blazers and waistcoats and the like. I thought perhaps Sven would concede to wearing a velvet smoking jacket as a comfy-yet-stylish burlesque outfit. After researching intensively and finding the right one in the perfect colour, in his size, at a good price, he said he wouldn’t wear one :/ :/ :/

So this is the compromise: It’s velvet, but understated and not showy. Very Sven. I like the outfit they had styled it up with I bought the whole shebang.

Silver cravat because he lost his last one at a party (yep, you know it’s a good party when you lose your cravat):
