Oh, if it would depend on me, I would make so that autumn would last all year long :D I was born in the middle of summer but autumn is my season :) I try to spend much more time in nature, when this season starts since I find it to be the most beautiful during the Fall. I visited my sister this weekend and had a chance to go wonder through a forest that is near her house. I had plans to take photos of my doll but ended up making photos of mushrooms :D
I'm kinda obsessed with wool dreadlocks since they can change your look really fast, can be installed and removed without much trouble and are cheap and easy to make :)
I was decided to make a bunch for my personal use. I'm quite a crafty person so and I thought I'll have no problem making them. And I was right :) I used this tutorial h and it was super easy to make them. Also, they wasn't really hard so I love that too. How ever... I wasn't completely happy with my color choice. For some strange reason I decided to go with black and pastel wool like lavender, pink and deep pink... But the color didn't suited me.
After looking through many photos of wool locks I found out that more natural earth colors attracted me the most. And it just happened that a friend of mine had some auburn/orange wool she wasn't using and gave it to me. And completely accidentally two days ago I made that wool into locks and now have a complete black and auburn dread set that I love :)
These a wool locks ponytails :) Really simple to make with a bunch of double ended wool locks :)
Maybe I'll make a tutorial if I'll kike doing that :P
and this is my "wool locks bub" :) So, what do you think ??
Wooh! Hello again :)It was a sorter pause this time. Thank you for your comment on the previous post. As I everybody was curious about my dreads, I decided to tell more about it.
I actually use a clip in dreadlock falls that is super easy to instal and holds very well. You can even headbang a little bit with it on. No spinning around though :D
I bought it at my local alternative store and it costed about 35 dollars. And I love it although I'm not wearing them very often. But they do let me change my look from totally plain hair to something more interesting and extraordinary :)
How to instal it?? You need to make a piggy tail and clip it on :)
All that's left is to mask the area where it connected to you hair. I use bandana and it looks like I have tied my own dreads with it :) I got so many questions if this is my real hair :) Unfortunately, I've seen it only in black color plus some additional colors installed into it :) If you look closer it looks like a big clip in ponytail that was all twisted to look like dreads. It always has a nice volume and look perfect :) I wore them during a fest that took all 4 days. I just took it of when going to sleep and put it back in when I woke up. It took me about ten minutes to restore the look.
Here is a picture of me wearing them together with my horns :)
God, I love those horns. Could wear them everyday...if only.
And here's few more photos :)
Really old one....
Super old one I just sewed in some purple dreads that I made myself. Removed them latter...
:D Pardon my tragic make up . I was just trying out the look. Never got out like that though. Must put that into my list :>
So, I you like it you can buy them here http://www.artofwings.com/accessories.htm#HairFalls or try to search on other internet shops. :) I hope I answered all of your questions :) And thanks for nice comments!
There is always a way :) Like myself. I have straight black/red hair. I dyed bangs all black and rest of my hair is a mix of black and red. And when I have a need for a more drastic look I just use my dread falls. People always mistaken them for real hair so I guess they must look good :D Any way, here's a few different looks wearing the same dread falls :)
Whats new? I added new items to my "Midnight Gypsy Alchemy" oil perfume collection :)
I started gathering it a year ago and have a little collection by now. And just few days ago I was lucky enough to win a give away of scented candle and some perfume samples from her :)
My last purchase was solid perfume of "Me Corozan" and Darkness Divine"
These were St. Valentines day special edition and I'm so happy I decided to get them the last minute. Especially "Darkness Divine" since it's the most wonderful scent. It's creamy, sweet, rosy, sour and deep. I will be getting a full bottle next year for sure. For me it's now the most Gothic scent I have and it fits me. Usually sweet scent do not feel right on my skin. They become to heave. But these ones are perfect :)
I have one roll on buttle I don't use and it's "La Mariposa". It's simple to green for me. "A blend of delicate florals, a hint of green grass and sweet nectar. A beautiful blend of blue lotus and vanilla absolute, labdanum resin ,essential oils in basil and grapefruit infused with grapefruit peels, basil leaves, vanilla beans and blue lotus petals."
It's just not for me. Maybe some one wants to trade?;)
I also discovered beetroot, tomato and carrot juice. It has such a lovely red color and very nice thickness. I just can't get enough of this wonderful color. I hope drinking 1l a day will benefit me somehow :D
I've been a little bit possessed by moon image lately. Well, I always was. My astrological sign is cancer and cancers have been known for their special relationships with moon.
I've seen many beautiful jewelry representing it on Etsy such
I find her style to be a lot like Charlotte. Bones, talons and birds claws. All cast in sterling silver. I found her jewelry at Tumblr first and was very exited. I like that dark style of hers, but after finding Charlotte shop it stopped looking so unique. But I still find these designs to be gorgeous :) Tough the pendant could be a little bit bigger :)
I've seen many beautiful jewelry representing it on Etsy such
Simple, elegant and for a good price :)
I like it a lot and it's actually my fav on Etsy.They look so raw and natural. All her jewelry are really pretty and creator has it's own stile. I like the simplicity and the size. These one don't need any other accessories to be accompanied. Just them and some black garment :)
Then there is
and her "Raven Moon ring" accompanied by other Witchy jewelry in her shop. The price of these jumps up quite a lot, but these are made from sterling silver and have natural stones like moonstone itself :)
And last there is
***And here is something super simple made by me from polymer clay. I wanted to see if I could replicate moon surface with polymer clay and I thing it looks quite nice. I'll work on this more latter as a little project for myself :)
Thanks for reading ;)
My hair finally almost the same length it was before the cut.
And I started to dye them in purple so I would get an ombre kind of effect while they will grow.
I succeeded once by dying them in red. So I hope to be lucky again but with different combination :)
Here's how the red/black combination looked like.
I wonder how it will work this time :D
So here's my newest work!
I got a little bit tired from the plain look I was presenting them on my Etsy shop, so I decided to use props I had to create a little "mess". I also added some of my jewelry. The little porcelain tea cup is from an antique tea set that was a Christmas gift from my father.
Of course the simple photos is a must too as I want you to be able to see how it actually look :)
I also got an order from my BF friend to make a necklace for him. This was the first time I had to make something unisex. He actually liked it a loot and will be picking it up next week. As for now I'll be focusing on bands more since I have a few ideas in mind for new projects:)
Thanks for taking a look ;)
The winter is coming to the end hopefully and I decided to renew my everyday jewelry box with few simple jewelry pieces I found on Ebay. The origin country of these is China, they are quite cheap and perfect for everyday use since you won't feel to devastated if you loose it :D And I happen to do that quite a lot.
What I got is this Bat pentacle on a long chain. The quality is quite good for the little price I paid. It looks lovely and love to tangle in things like other people hair :D
Second purchase are these loooovely kitties earrings. The details of these are not at perfection.... But they are alright. I wanted the black ones by they were out of stock so I got them in silver color. And that was a good choice for they would disappear in my black hair background. They fit perfectly as you see and there are no gaps. The lock just seems a little bit loose and I'll have to do something about it if I don't want to loose them on the first day of wearing..
Next are these black crosses earring. They reminded me of old school a little bit so I ordered them thought I'm not a super big fan of cross earrings :) They look best with my hair up since it disappear due my black hair color if my hair hangs loose. I ordered them in silver color the same day I got the black version.
My coworker wasn't impressed with the "hanged kittens" as she expressed herself and liked these much more.
And last but not least is this big vampire cross pendant. It came with rubber band but I wear it on a long chain... and sometimes on short if I don't want to poke someones eye with it :D The little bat has no face, but everything else looks good. I like the details on wings. And this is A VERY BATTY CROSS. And I love it!!! But I got a feeling this might be originally from Alchemy Gothic. Not sure, but let me know if you know something ;)
And something hat haven't arrived jet is the bracelet of bones in silver color and a bronze skeleton hand...
... that I intend to spray in silver or black since there was no option for these colors. I think I'll stick to silver it's the best color when you wear all black :D
I still want a big ankh and I have laid my eyes on this Alchemy Gothic beauty :3
Well this one will not be a cheap one :D
