DIY gloves

Was walking around and stumbled into this higher end goth store (ODD style) and saw these $500 gloves with gold or silver fingernails in them. Of course I'd love them.
There's got to be a way to diy them. 


I've got a collection to add to

Open Studios

When I first moved to NYC, I used to love hanging out in the art scene in Williamsburg, which is now multi-million dollar condos and rich kids. All the artists are in Bushwick now and once a year, the artists open their studios to the public and there's a big block party and tons of free booze and amazing artwork. Honestly, seeing artwork in an artist's studio beats going to a museum any day.  I feel like art goes to a museum to die. 

here are a some photos from the two days I went.

Ear stretching

So this post will cover my personal stretching experience. I've only stretched my ear lobes. I've also had little problems doing it. My current size is 4g (5mm) and 8g (3mm).

Poser talk

I'm taking a stand and letting you know what makes someone a goth, as per this challenge and re "world goth day" posts (and how corp goth was that sentence)

I spent a really lame (...or awesome?) saturday night watching goths call each other posers on youtube.

Trend: Macrame

So as I've been faithfully reporting, the fashion gods have decided that we need 70s shit, so here it comes. Also I actually had some time to head to a few fast-fashion stores and noticed 1) damn, the 70s shit is here and 2) my 2014 trend prediction of unusual hair accessories doesn't seem to be a 2014 trend, but a 2015 trend. Maybe I'm so great at trend predictions, i'm TWO years ahead, baby. But that's another post for later.

So yeah, I saw a large amount of macrame stuff (a craft style that's based on knot-tying) at the stores. I feel like a few years ago that meant the trend is already over, but since those stores knock off runway fashion so quickly and efficiently, maybe it'll stay around.
