I had ten songs in the works, and while trying to install plugins to FL Studio, everything crashed. When I rebooted and checked back, all of my plugins, all of my songs and the program itself were gone. *poof*
Now I have to start from scratch. Fan-fucking-tastic.
Another song I’ve been toying with. Enjoy!
I’ve been toying with some music this week, and uploaded the first one I really *liked* to SoundCloud. Take a listen!
Got a new haircut. Couldn’t get a decent shot of my whole head, so I got about a quarter of it for you:
And a more fashionable shot of me ready to go out and see extraordinary industrial performers Velvet Acid Christ:
I’m getting a mohawk soon, so I’m going to share some videos on hairstyling creativity! Have fun!
I’m attending a Velvet Acid Christ show next month, and I’ve been researching different makeup techniques to try. Youtube has a plethora of videos available full of makeup ideas. Here’s a few that stood out to me, that not only are good for your local gothic industrial night, but might give you a few ideas for Halloween makeup too! Enjoy!
Love the feathery eyes on this tutorial…
Awesome lips on this one!!!
Marilyn Manson makeup in two parts – including a tutorial on how to hide your brows!
An eye look I’ll probably emulate for the show, but with a pale lip instead of red.
Another gothic look (speedtorial) – more glued down brows and tape to get your eyeliner straight!
Hope that keeps you all entertained for a while! Ta!
I need to get around to doing an actual official how-to on this, but for now, I’ll just post pics of the finished products.
Recently I’ve been eyeballing those really cool “punk” style patches on Etsy, where it’s white ink screenprinted on black fabric. I love the way they look, and they’re super easy to safety pin or sew onto your jackets or clothes. However, some people are charging $5 plus shipping (or more!) for these patches, which considering the cost of materials, is a bit steep for my delicate budget.
So I went to Joann Fabrics and bought a half a yard of black cotton duck for about $5, and went to Michael’s Crafts and bought a white fabric paint marker for $3.99 (I think?). I know how to screenprint, and I’ve done it years in the past, but I just don’t have the time or room in my apartment to start setting up that kind of endeavor. I decided I’d be better off just hand drawing the images onto the fabric. Here’s some of what I’ve come up with:
:WUMPSCUT: – that’s a band, in case you didn’t know.
Zombie Hello Kitty
by request, a “personal pronounse” patch
Skinny Puppy band logo
If you have any kind of creative talent (thank you, four years of art school), this is a super easy project to play with. If you don’t think you’re all that creative, do what I did, and buy a $1.99 plastic stencil at the craft store, and use it to outline your letters and then just colour them in! The “Wumpscut” and “Personal Pronoun” patches were made with the same stencil.
Give it a try, and link me what you’ve made, I’d love to see your handiwork, and maybe do a future post featuring your creations! Get crafty!
I have been a member of the goth/punk/rivet community since 1991, and while I might not “dress the part” so much now, my heart is still with them. In honour of Halloween, I’d like to share some goth related videos, and other goth related articles and outfits throughout the month of October.

Hi, folks! Went to Plato’s Closet for the first time today and was really impressed with the sheer volume of clothing and accessories they sell. First I perused their bags and purses. I saw a few things I liked, but I didn’t want to spend $12 on the cute plaid messenger bag (maybe I’ll go back and get it another time). I saw a pair of Cons that I considered getting, but skipped it this time. The men’s jeans were all too big and baggy for my tastes, so I skipped those too. I hit up the huge wall-o-tshirts, and found a few that I really liked. I also picked up a purple plaid button down shirt, and a small shirt for my partner’s teen daughter. Instagram pics below:
Purple Plaid Button Down Shirt – Cost: $3
“Black” tshirt – Cost $3
Neon Skullies tshirt – Cost: $6
Bleeding Heart tshirt – Cost $6
