So this evening, I took a train and tram out to Fitzroy, to a place called Libation, to watch Growlithe's ex girlfriend Jess play with another girl whose name I shamefully forget, but have met before at an Occupy protest. (Everyone got really confused when I mentioned that Jess used to date my boyfriend, and I was there to see her. I'm not quite sure why being friends with his ex is such a weird thing.)
Jess' mum Jo was there too. Jo is awesome. She is also scared of daleks - a wise fear.
Anyway, I went sort of Sweeney Todd and Lillian Low inspired. If you don't know who Lillian is, well, she's an awesome. That should narrow it down. Anyway, here goes.
The Crap I Wore On My Face:
-Missha Perfect Cover #13
-My New $55 Illamasqua pressed powder in PF005 (recommend it to anyone! I walked through the rain to get home, and aside from where my glasses were, it was still in place!)
-Manic Panic red eyeshadow as blush
-Nabi blush in "Lilac" (It's not lilac. It's pink.)
-Manic Panic gel liner
-Manic Panic Raven eyeshadow
-Cheapo Brand liquid liner
-Manic Panic lipstic in "Vampire Red".
My makeup stayed in place regardless of how goddamn hot I got. And I got very, very hot! Rain+train+people=lotsofheat. But I'd like to think that the windows fogged up because I got on the tram.
I think the staying power of my makeup was largely due to the Illamasqua. I will review it at length later, but right now, buy it. Buy it from their online store here, since it's fucking expensive in Australia ($35 online, $55 in store, but I was desperate for powder).
If you can afford it, in any case, get the hell out of it.
Onto the outfit.
|As far as you need to be concerned, my face|
never happened in this pic.
-My ever-faithful Lovechild Boudoir skirt, pinned up at the front. I have decided I love this look.
-Blouse, by Anna House (which is a cheapo Loli brand. It was $15 from the Lolita shop in Fitzroy)
-Stockings are Leg Avenue
-Bloomers (unseen) are Gallery, of course!
-Corset is Gallery
-Crow jacket nicked from my sister.
And although I have no photographic evidence, I wore my Doc Martens.
I loved this outfit so goddamn hard. I felt so...tall. I'm not sure why. All together, it was a Lillian Low meets Sweeney Todd feel, at least to me. Screw your opinions, guise, it's all about how I feeeeeel.
As you guise know, whenever I tease my hair it is a war to get it back to normal. Here's the "omg home" pic, and the "back to normal" pic.
And a good night was had by all!
