Here’s a few shows I found particularly interesting by some of my favorite designers. A lot of them tend to be very avant garde, but I feel there’s one or two things we can take away from the shows (for example, Yohji Yamamoto’s use of oversized knits).
(I’m really dying for the metal cap-toe boots in the McQueen show! I see a project in my future….)
Hello! Those of you who know me off-site know that I just got a new set of synthetic dreads – Yay! I had a set a few years ago and fell in love with them, and am very excited to have a new set.
I chose to go with more natural colors this time around, but I feel that next time, I’ll get more unusual colors added into the mix.
So far, the only downside I’ve had is that when I pull them back, they’re very heavy, so that’s something I’ll have to get used to. Also, I keep leaning back on them, so they pull. I’m just not used to having hair this long!
Here’s a picture of the beginning of the install:
and a photo of the final install:
Below, I’ve included my video review of Syndreads synthetic dreads, as well as the video of the installation method we used, by RivetLicker.
Just rememberr, everyone, don’t be afraid to try something new. It’s just hair, and it’s loads of fun to play with. Synthetic dreads are temporary, and you can always take them out or change them up as you see fit. The only limit is your imagination! Give them a try!
Our next review will probably have something to do with my contact lens appointment this upcoming week. I’ve never worn them before, so it’ll be a completely new experience for me. I’ll be sure to post a video about it. Until then! Be well!
Here’s a tidbit for those unfamiliar with the Gothic Lolita fashion style. In the following you’ll find makeup techniques, fashion shows, and more.
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 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.

From watching the video, it seems that some of the upcoming trends are going to be:
- leather trim
- peakaboo cutouts (in winter?)
An all time favourite of mine!
