Rich and dark eye shadows for dramatic look

Just ordered a bunch of eye shadows from Scaredy Cat. I love her make up and the packing she use. So unique and personal :) Why feed large cosmetic companies with you incomes, when you can actually give it to a real person and get a real product with a soul.


I felt in love with their red, brown and orange eye shadows at the first sign.

So I ordered a bigger container and got a chance to pic five free samples :) How cool is that?  :D So I picked colors I haven't tried before.


HIRUNDO

ROSE GOLD

DON'T BE KOI

PHEONIX TEARS
FOMHAR

All are red and brown tones again :) I just love them. They looked good when I had red hair, I hope it will be the same now that I'm black. 
I do love dramatic make up but I sometimes find it to cliche and to boring. Not to mention it not always look good and you can end like panda instead of Vamp Queen :D That always happens with baby bats :) You must blend black with other colors to avoid that circle "around your eyes"  look. Especially if your eyes are not that big. You can end having "piggy eyes as I call them;) 



Sorry fans, but that's  NOT a good use of black eyeliner. And I often see girls wearing it all like that with super dark lipstick. Ah well... Who am I to criticize it. I'm just happy it's not me :D Because I personally find this combination  funny looking one.

So, my favorite combination is red and brown plus a little bit of black. I almost never leave without my dots at least four of them (two on the each of  lover lid of the eye).

Red blended with brown and black
+black liquid eyeliner

Silver blended with grey and black
+black liquid eyeliner

Metallic golden blended with light brown
+black liquid eyeliner



Just black liquid eyeliner and a little bit of light golden/brown.
I left my lips pale, since if I would add darker color I would look 10 years older...

I was out of make up already. There was left only some brown shadows and green ones witch I don't like at the moment. And I'm very picky about the color. But I'm safe now :) I can't wait to get the order :D

Next in my Etsy wish list is SaraWen perfume oils. As description says it's "Unique perfume oils inspired by all things Literary, Magical, Historical, Gothic, and Geeky! " 
I have found many review and feedback telling that the scents are magnificent. I cant wait to order them when I'll have extra cash in my PayPal again :)

Simple Lolita inspired outfit

Outfit I had few days before  becoming black again :D 

It's very simple, just a handmade skirt, simple shirt and a black sweeter. The bow is attachable. It went on other skirt latter. And I think it's not the last journey of its :D

This is how my hand made skirt looks with new bows. I still want something more on it...

I had a chance to wear my black pearls necklace. It's first time I'm really wearing them and not trying :) I got it from my mother as a gift. I love how they become warm after few minutes of wearing them. And they are ice cold when I put them on .

Now go and have some coffee :)
Sebastian will serve you the sweets .

Game of Thrones, weekend outfit and other routine of a Countess

Finally  I had a chance to go home this weekend. I haven't seen my parents since summer I guess. So staying at my dad's hause was few days of totally relaxation away from my sewing table witch is making me crazy. Since I'm a person of no patterns I try do do everything just by taking a look. I use no patterns. And they ARE NEEDED sometimes... 
I'm glad I'll finally got my winter coat. It's way to cold now with the thin one I had and now I can be sure I won't get cold and won't have to wear 2 sweaters when I go outside. I also snatched a cardigan from attic. All unused stuff  are kept there as well as some season clothes. So I found a high collar blouse, a shrug and a white T shirt for reconstruction.
I also had a chance to dress up as a doll :D It was fun for me and since we played "Game of Thrones" all Saturday, I just had to look royally :D


I played for Baratheon house :D

Love the motto :D 
The game devoured almost 5 hours of our time. Not to mention we had to leave it and to finish it the next morning :D So I definitely recommend it if you enjoyed the book and the TV series. 
We were leaving on Sunday. My sister entered the room when I was putting on my fourth skirt layer. That's how I travel with them to keep them smooth. She asked "Why do you do that?". "Because it's fun" - I answered.
The last day coordination was my favorite. I decided that the wide sleeves are definitely my favorite ones and that the black color suits me best.
 And yes... I colored my hair black again... 
Blouse - off brand.
Corset - Ebay
Sleeves - attachable, made by me.
Cardigan - reconstructed from an old dress.
Skirt - an off brand. I added ribbon a and black lace.
Shoes - borrowed from sister just for this photo.

The coordination with the white collar cutsew and a white underskirt was nice but not as nicely dark and warm.
Blouse - a cutsew from a simple long sleeve and lace
Cardigan - off brand
Cosrset - Ebay
Skirt reconstructed from a large off brand skirt
Underskirt -  made by me.
Well,I like this outfit as well as the first one, is just I don't really know about the white collar. Maybe it's not so bad. :)

I got payed for a purchase few days ago and was all like "oh, a new dress!!!" but it was so hard to pic which one I wan't ( since I want so many) that  my eyes started to hurt. I decided that it's silly and left that matter. I still got a lovely JSK and a dress I haven't worn jet. 
But since inner shopaholic was still roaring I decided to spend them on my darling Haru ( who is a ball jointed doll from Luts company). He was sleeping in his box since we got a cat. At first I was afraid the cat will scratch him, then I got involved with Lolita and started to sew everything for myself. I took him out time to time just to feast my eyes on his beauty. But today I decided that I might actually get him new boots and that super expensive wig that cost actually more then mine :D I still can't decide  should it be grey or white... So I'll start making an wonderful Gothic dandy boy outfit for him and then we'll see what wig and shoes will suit him best. 

Oh!! And there is an Event on Luts site. And the limited edition boy got my attention too... 

:3.... I don't know what it is with deer and me these days :D
Oh, he would be perfect pairing for my cold looking Haru...

P.S. As my track number shows, the Bodyline shoes I've ordered is already at the post office. I hope to receive next day :)

This is a pink I would wear...


Yes, this blooming garden tulle pinafore dress from Metamorphose has the perfect amount of pink fore me.  It's now going on my wish list together with vampire forest :3 I really never thought that I could wear pink in any forms. Except hosiery :D Well, what do you know ;) Oh, how I lust for a dress like that :p



Hide the pink in Black


I know it takes time and saving to get a branded print. I hope to get one next year. Till then I'll enjoy my Vampire requiem replica :3 Cant' wait to get it. It should reach me in the end of December or at least in the middle of January. I heard that sometimes it takes even six month. I hope it won't be the case.

Usual day of mine

I've been working on some new projects. A cutsew  and a collar. The cutsew is kinda finished. It needs some more details, I think. The good thing with making your own outfit is that you can modify it during the time. So I'll try to wear it and see what is missing...
When I finish a piece I always make a photo because that way it is easier to see the whole view of it. I wouldn't post such photos on blog since they usually are erased. But this one made me lough a lot.  As I found out, I had a stalker in the back ground :D

Try to find a kitty in this photo :D
and yes, when I work the pieces of fabric is scatering all around :D
I'm wearing me new cutsew with white collar and cuffs and a white underskirt with lace trimming.

 I found those lace quite cheap and I could not decide on what skirt I wanted them to be. Then I thought " Why not make a underskirt with this  lace so I can wear it with any skirt I like". I love white lace peeking a little bit :) Everything else is my old stuff: high waist skirt and the shrug you saw a few posts ago. 
I find some interesting fabric that I took. 



I decided to try and make a JSK from it. I have an image of it in my head with dark blue bows, a white pearl chain and some more laces. It would be more classical Lolita but with darker accessories it would be a more aristocratic look ;) I hope I'll succeed.

Outfit: Elegant Gothic Lolita inspired

Well, here's a random Gothic Lolita  inspired outfit shoot. I was trying it out for Halloween. I don't have photos from the event itself since I had just enough time to dress up and leave and I didn't took my camera with me. But this is the look closest to how I looked.


No umbrella of course but I thinks it's a very nice detail :) And my heart bat bag is the best companion when you need a little purse :) I just love it :)

I had more puffy skirt decorated with lace and frills, my deer horns, and heels were change into New rock Platform boots. Oh, and next time I'll wear contact lenses for sure. For every time I entered the club after having a cigarette outside, my glassed got all fogy  :) Not nice actually... It's sad that there is only a few alternative clubs/bars where you can go. The events sometimes are hold but that's all. I'm so jealous when I read about all those themed vampire/Gothic cafe. I'd love to spend an evening in one. It would be so nice to see other people dressed in their best  lovely dark outfits :) Sad, that most of them are in Japan. I wan't to move there!!! :) That's the only country I'd leave Lithuania for. I'd better start learning Japanese language :D

...and just for the nose bleed... 

Ok, now I'm ready to die an reincarnate ...

Pimp my slippers


  I bought simple slipper and pimped it up with applications :)


A little bit of lace and a bat. Its bet someone stepped on the back when I was walking and it got ripped. But they were fun to walk in for that short period :D

Thas's all for now. Take care ;)

Gothic Lolita shrug from a simple dress

So, I had this dress in black. I knew I will not wear it anymore so it was perfect to have practice on making a shrug. I saw a couple tutorials and it seemed quite easy to make a shrug. So I decided to give a try. I needed a Gothic Lolita shrug desperately.
And now I have one. I'm really proud of this one. What once was a plane dress now is a gorgeous shrug I don't want to take off. I love it !!!


I cut the dress bottom to get a desirable length top. I cut trough the front to make the opening. From the bottom piece I made little stripes and and trimmed the top and it sleeves with it by making ruffles. I sew a ribbon in front so I could lace the top, added lace and bows to make it more festive :)
Wearing it with my blouse.

 The details.

I used the whole dress for this project. The bottom that was cut off was used for ruffles and bows.


And what was left is now a beautiful hair band. The all thing can be removed and attached to a hair slide or pin.

Hand made Lolita inspired skirt

So here it is - my first handmade Lolita  inspired skirt. Not a reconstruction. I sew it from a fabric I bought at a fabric shop near my home.

 As you can see, hundreds of kitties are dwelling on my skirt.




  I bought one meter of fabric. And it was hardly enough. So I think for a girl like me who wears size 36 the amount of fabric should be at least 1,5 meter. The fabric was 1,20 cm wide so I cut in in half and had 60 cm x 100 cm  wide pieces. The seams stole about a 1 cm each and I had to cut about 10 cm wide strip for the waist, so the bottom of the skirt is about 175 cm. I think this is the minimum width for a skirt you should make or else it wont sit nicely on you. Next time I'm going for 2,5 meter.  The making was simple. I sewed one side of a fabric to make one long piece, then I sewed the bottom laces and decorative laces on the front. Only then I sew the other side together, gathered it and sew the waist on. Here's the scheme. 




 I still don't like the bows. I'm thinking about getting more fabric and making them bigger...


By the way, I made this shrug too. But I'll leave the close up investigation of it for the next post :)

UPDATE!!!!

 I replaced little bows with big black ones. I think it looks much better now.

Hosiery: a way to diversify your look


I always envied my friend who could wear over knee socks because of her absolutely gorgeous legs. Her legs are slim and long, while I have more of femine figure witch remind sand clock. Usually over knee socks roll down from my tights or maybe I never found the right size for me to wear. So the tights that looks like over knee socks  were the perfect solution. I'm so happy I can wear them and feel really comfortable :D

 I do love them :P


 My J-rock skirt goes well with it too...
Well, all short skirt goes well with it. And shorts too... and black bloomer that I have :>
But my real passion is colorful striped tights and all ornament of fishnet tights :) I love to wear stockings during the summer. The gather belt makes you feel very womanly and I don't like those with latex lining for better holding. Gather belt do that just perfect :D

Stripped ones are my favorite. I used to have all palette of  them. Need to restock it really bad.

 Its so easy to match with these. Have something blue on your top, there go with the blue/black stripes.
 Red ornaments on you vest. Well, black/red is best for you to chose :D

 One color pantyhose with ornament. I always match them with my tops ore accessories I wear (hair bows, pins, ties and so on)


 Spider net. Good for any occasion. Wanted for a long time and finally got them with just the perfect web design :D

Simple net bigger or small is something I can't live during the summer. My legs are always pale and I get bruises very easy, so net fishnet is best to give a little bit of cover and stay cool.

Hosiery I want to obtain ( or must):

Doll leg tights

Gothic Lolita knee high socks

Skeleton tights


Harlequin tights

AND


and I want all kinds of fishnet tights. I love them all. You can wear them on colorful tights during the colder season or enjoy cool breeze during the summer. They are best ever :D
