One of my favourite things to do is create character outfits, or creating characters for certain outfits. Not only as a sort of closet cosplay, but also as a new character I invent. And this for sure is my most elaborate. I tried to pay attention to every little detail and collected a bunch of accessoires (I was very lucky in that way, with things I had at home and found at flea markets). Actually I was also looking for a blouse but I could not find a matching one for the life of me. So I made one – it is far from perfect, because I messed up some construction work, but I was lucky to find this fabric while looking for the skirt fabric.

I knew I would take this to Herculaneum (and Vesuvius), because to me this is a 19th/20th century inspired female archaeologist looking for adventure and science. It’s well known how difficult it was for women at that time to actually follow scientific interest and I find it so inspiring to hear about the ones that managed to gather knowlegde and maybe even got the chance to visit the digs. Since I follow a couple of vintage dressing archaeologists on Instagram I always connect those two things. After all, if you’re interested in history and art of the past, why not in clothing, too?

It was so wonderful to wear this outfit in such a matching scenery, I was actually called Miss Indiana Jones and compared to Evelyn from The Mummy, and I really dig those comparsions. You are aware, that I love drawing inspiration from fictional characters like Charlotte Charles and Adèle Blanc-Sec, but creating characters of my own makes me feel even better. It is like the outfits tell a story, like this person in this outfit is part of a novel while still being a part of me, too. I think art and history is fascinating – and I am so in love with beige/muted tones at the moment. The are warm, calm and studious in a way that makes me very comfortable.

Handmade Update | July & August 2017

Once again I have two months of handmade things for you – mainly because I wasn’t really in a sewing mood in July. However I did work in August – of course on the hottest days, because what else would you do at 35°C?

Moth Painting Acryl
Moth Painting
of July
This painting was the only thing I made in July, I wanted to paint again, so choose a moth from my wonderful moth encyclopaedia and painted it while watching Donnie Darko for the first time. Those two things are now connected for me.

Beige “Archaeologist” Skirt
DATE of August
Since I am currently in a style transition towards more beige and black – well, away from a lot of novelty, colourful things, towards something more subdued, maybe more “vintage”, I wanted to make a beige skirt from linen. It is inspired by 20th century explorers and I do quite like it. It is only half a circle skirt, because I thought that fitting.

Detective Military Olive Dress 50s Midcentury Fities Handmade
Detective Dress
of August
I found this fabric for 2€/m and I knew I needed to make something from it – out one of my butterick cuts came to mind and this dress came to be. It looks rather military-esque which I really do not appreciate, but I think it looks good nevertheless. And someone on Instagram called it a detective dress, so I’m perfectly fine with that.

Off White Shirt Handmade
Off-White Linen Shirt
of August
I really don’t like making shirts like that, I prefer making fitted things because it’s a lot easier for me. However for one outfit I really needed a blouse like that and since I found some left-over (and therefore cheap) fabric at the store I decided to make it myself. It is far from perfect, because I made a miscalculation on the piece of fabric for the buttonholes. However it does look good with the outfit as a whole, so I can deal with it. And I so love the fabric!

Greek Dress White Blue Ornament Off-Shoulder Tile
Greek Tile Dress
of August
I do not know when it happened, maybe while reading poems by Antique Greek Writes for the first time in a while, but I became obsessed with Antique Greece. Everything from the actual people to the myths – I mean it has always fascinated me, but recently it became more intense. I also saw a white dress with a border print in blue and felt inspired to make one. To me that looks incredibly Greek, and I quite like it. The ornaments are handpainted – I made stencils and used fabric paint, so some of it is a bit smudgy, but I think that adds to the charme (and you don’t really see it from afar).

What did you make recently? And do you alway manage to put your sewing on the hottest days of the year?

When I saw erstwilder would launch a Grease collection, I was over the moon. I wanted a Frenchie brooch for ages, but the only one I knew of was an “old” handmade piece by a brand that no longer exsisted. So, obviously, seeing a brand that has fantastic designs anyway release something Grease-themed – perfection! Of course, I set a timer for the release time – if you are a retro online shopper you know how it is with limited editions. Looking back, that was not neccessary, because they had a large stock.

Anyway I was very happy to be able to get beautiful Frenchie, still thinking about the necklaces though! Grease was one of the things that got me into retro dressing – as I guess it was for a lot of people. It’s so iconic and fun – not only due to the outfits, but they play a huge part. There is barely an outfit I would not want to wear – still Frenchie’s choice will forever be my favourites. Her pink hair (and actually all the colours she has during the movie) make me want to change my hair, even though I’m quite happy with the way it is now. It’s not only her style though Besides Grease there is of course Dirty Dancing – and even though it is set in the early 60s it’s not really sixties style – which was a big inspiration especially music wise. Additionally I can basically talk (and sing) along both movies. I will forever be thankful o these movies giving me the idea to dress this way.

Last (though maybe first), but not least is Pushing Daisies’ Charlotte Charles who would approve of this outfit for sure. Her outfits inspire me every day, it’s such a modern retro dream, focusing on a 50s silhouette, but sometimes moving towards adorable boho outfits. I own three dresses that I made after her outfits in the show, but I plan on expanding. For me this was also the first time seeing retro in modern times (since where I live this is not really common). In a way we are really lucky to live in this day and age, where we can get inspired by the past, but a lot of the boundaries are gone – it shows you how much you can do in a matter of decades.

One of my favourite things to do is walk around graveyards, especially old ones. No matter if Christian, Jewish or whatever, I think it’s so interesting how graves were designed and the stories behind both the people and the graveyard as a whole. And it always has a rather calming effect on me, because usually there are a lot less people walking around compared to parks. However at least the graveyard near me is almost a park – it hasn’t been used as a graveyard in decades, they take care of the flowers and placed a couple of benches all over the area.

Of course, it also makes my Wednesday Addams heart rejoice to visit graveyards. In general her dark fashion inspires me a lot at the moment, I’m not sure I’d wear black everyday, but I adore her appearance. But, to be honest, I also consider her character rather inspiring. She does her thing and follows her way through life. The way the whole family is okay with being weird, different, can mean a lot to people who don’t always fit in – life would be a lot easier if more families were like the Addams. Especially the loving relationship of Gomez and Morticia really shows how being true to oneself can make life a whole lot better – after all none of their kids have any personal issues either.

I really want to cosplay Wednesday one day, her appearance is very iconic and I would wear her dress in reallife. Nevertheless I think this dress would be approved as well, it has some Edwardian influences (at least I tried to convey them) – and of course it’s all black. Sure, my almost paper white skin (and those black circles that look like I crept out of a grave) adds to that Edwardian not-so-sorry widow effect. Which of course closes the circle to the Addams family graveyard. I guess I will watch one of the movies tonight.

Apparently, there is this myth about moths being dead spirits. Well vengeful bad spirits, but since I think moths are lovely and beautiful, let’s just say spirits of any kind. I love that idea, moths are mainly found during night time, looking for light, I can imagine them being ghosts of people that passed recently. After all there are even moths with the image of a skull on the back.

Sure, those mainly remind me of Silence of the Lambs, but then again that movie is amazing. I can’t even say if I like the movie or TV show adaptation of Hannibal better. Of course, the TV show has Hugh Dancy and he is literally my favourite male eye candy. And it’s by Bryan Fueller, because he is an amazing show runner (thinking of, I have to continue American Gods). Anyway, I think moths work great with the genre in general, because they have this darkness and calmness at the same time.

Of course, moths also remind me of Animal Crossing, because as a kid I used to play AC in the evening, especially in summer and catching moths was always part of that. By now I also own my own little (or not so little, it’s actually rather big) moth and it looks a lot like the big one in Wild World. So besides me loving moths, and this on being beautiful, that is another plus. You can see it here, by the way.

In a way that also matched the gothic vibes Krakow has to it. However I cannot let this pass without mentioning how AMAZING this chimney cake (it’s actually a Czech thing, but whatever) with caramel cream, a sort of frozen yoghurt/ice cream and my favourite bisquits. Not only does it look like heaven, it was an utter dream come true. That’s probably why I look at it as if it was my one true love or my newborn.

she may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts | Millennium Falcon Tattoo

Millennium Falcon Tattoo
In the beginning of July I got my third tattoo, the first one you can actually see most of the time, because it’s on my lower arm. A beautiful place for that matter, in my opinion. As with most of my ideas, I’ve planned that for months/years in a word document. Okay, I’m surprised I still don’t have an appointment for the Alice one, but then again I’m young. Anyway. This one is quite obviously for Star Wars, because I just love this franchise and especially the importance (and beauty) of this ship. I wanted TIE fighters and flowers around the ship and once again Ella did a wonderful, detailed job.

Tattoo Healing

At parts this one was surprisingly hurtful about where the violets are and my arm was slightly cramped the nest two days (might have been due to my slepping position though). Well, that cramp faded and it healed quite well, some parts took longer than the rest and now it looks really cute. Especially the yellow and red really pop from the grey ship. Well, I’m just happy with it, it’s exactly the way I wanted it and also, so many people told me how much they liked it. I think it will also blend in quite well with everything that’ll come due to the flowers (I’m pretty sure there will almost always be nature involved in my pieces in one way or another).

Another thing that was a bit weird was my arm hair growing back. I’m mean, it’s obivous that when you shave your hair (well, Ella did at the studio) that it’ll grow back, but I haven’t done that in years and having itchy stubble on a tattoo was not the most comfortable feeling. That of course is a petty problem, but I had to mention it. It took somewhere between two and three hours with some short pauses to move my hand.

With this I also got a tragus piercing, something I wanted for a rather long time as well and it’s healing well. Also, how beautiful is that stone? I was a bit afraid of being pierced with a needle since it has been a few years since my helix and that was done with a gun (I know how bad that is, but back in the day I did not and luckily I never had any issue at all). However it barely hurt and so far everything is well.

a few gothic favourites

Gothic Favourites
Currently I’m loving the Victorian idea of Gothic, I love gothic horror anyway, but I also really enjoy the aesthetic with the beautiful lace details and darkness. I did not show any below, but I also really enjoy Chokers at the moment (who is late on that train?), because I think they can add this Victorian vibe (of course that heavily depends on material etc.).

Gothic Favourites Bride of Frankenstein Funko Pop
My love for Frankenstein is very big and you know that, because I talk about it all the time. So, eventually I decided to get the 30s movies after falling in love with this beautiful Bride print at Comic Con. As it is the case every once in a while I also got the Funko Pop figurine. And to me this one is especially beautiful with the details on the dress – and of course, her big hair is too cute.

Gothic Favourites Bride of Frankenstein Pin Brooch Violets Sappho'S Club sapphic
I also love this Bride pin by Kate Gabrielle – which I turned into a brooch, because it’s something I rather wear. She also glows in the dark, which is a fantastic addition to this character in particular. The violets brooch is a sapphic symbol and I think it’s very dainty and beautiful.

Gothic Favourites Moth
This moth was a gift by my mother – I talked about this before on Instagram; I wanted to get it in the beginning of July after looking at it for weeks, but it wasn’t at the Antique shop anymore and I was quite sad. However mum had gotten it for me, because she is the loveliest. Moths are one of my favourite animals, and this one in particular also reminds me of Animal Crossing. It’s a beautiful piece and I’m still thinking about where to place it to really show off it’s beauty.

Gothic Favourites 80s Edwardan Dress White GypsyGothVintage
One of my favourite Instagram accounts is Gypsy Goth Vintage and she also has an etsy shop where she sells beautiful pieces from the 20th century. I have been eyeing a pair of trousers for months, maybe years – it’s a 80s piece in turquoise. Well, still thinking about getting it. BUT I did get this lovely 80s piece, it’s an Edwardian inspired piece and exactly the kind of dress I love at the moment. With all the different organza and lace it’s a gorgeous pice and I got it at a fantastic price. It gives me quite a nice “antique” silhouette and I think it would look great wearing it in a forest (hauning surrounding villages, probably).

Gothic Favourites Lipstick Kiko essence metal green sangria
Recently I discovered green lipsticks – surprisingly they lok quite natural on me, the essence one (Metal Shock in 07 Venom) looks a bit like I imagine Medusa and the Kiko one (Metal Lipstick in 12 Forest Green) which is a bit darker like a mermaid. As someone that does not look that good in green clothing it is really interesting to see that green lipstick looks good on me (additionally they have fancy names). But, I also really enjoy the dark red/fuchsia tone (Gossamer Emotion Creamy Lipstick in 111 Sangria) – I know dark tones are more popular in winter, but I do love them at the moment (then again they fit in quite well with the gothic/edwardian/victorian vibes I love right now). The design of tha last one is really innovative, but also kind of chunky and I do not know if I like that. As for durance, all of them stay on all day with minor touch ups.

What do you enjoy at the moment? what are your favourite thinkgs right now?

Flowers and Writing

I’m sorry for being a little inactive at the moment, but I do not feel all that inspired. Especially writing wise, it’s probably one of the reasons I did not post this outifit earlier, it’s about a month old, after all. But to be honest my writing motivation just isn’t that high. I don’t really know what to write and feel like it’s a bit like writer’s block while writing a story. Hmmm.

What I can say is that I really love this brooch, because it’s a beautiful bee (which I love) and it’s from a dear friend. It’s a bit heavy though, so while it would actually match dainty dresses and scarfes, it would rip delicate fabrics. But writing this, I think it would look great holding a dark scarf around the shoulders on colder days.
However, I’m really happy I’m travelling next week, maybe that’ll get me inspired. After all, I am feeling a bit bored at home at the moment, so getting out will help for sure.

Finally, finally! I managed to shoot this outfit and post the photos. I planned this for the last few months, but wanted to wait for my Falcon tattoo. But the day has come and yesterday my friend Thyra and I went to take a couple of photos. This summer is very lovely so far – some days are a bit to hot/humid for my taste, but in general it’s a feeling of comfortable warmth. I can still rock my saddle shoes and petticoat, but a 60s babydoll is fine as well, so I’m quite happy.

To be honest I’m also quite happy with this Millennium Falcon dream outfit. After all everything ties together in a neat Star Wars theme – the shoes were a gift from my mum and I love them to pieces. It was the first time wearing them and the rub my feet a bit on the sides, but I think a pair of socks might help. I mean, what’s cuter than R2D2 heels? I get so many comments from people in real life telling me they really like them, and of course the shoes themselves are too beautiful. I feel like I should really wear all my fancy IC heels more often, because they fill me with joy.

The Millennium Falcon is one of my favourite space ships, I just love the flat design (I know it’s inspired by the one in the Valerian comics, but oh well). So of course this print is one of my favourites, I think it’s adorable especially with the black background, so I was beyond happy to find the matching earrings and of course my little tattoo addition makes me very happy too (even though it’s obviously still healing). My Leia brooch is another favourite not only becausse of the unique design, but also because there is a little quote on the backside.

Then again, Star Wars always makes me happy, because it has this easy going, fun vibe and the music alone gives me this warm fuzzy feeling. Thinking of – I still have to listen to the You Must Remember This Podcast about Star Wars (though it’s more of a play on words and about Old Hollywood) and I have to continue Ian Doescher’s Shakespeare’s Star Wars plays, because they are fantastic. The good – and bad thing (because ther is just so much) – about big fandoms like Star Wars is that is so much creativity and stuff surrounding it – from official/licensed merchandise to craziy creative from independent artists (like the brooch). Though it is always inspiring to see all the creative minds taking their spin on this big universe. There is also more than one inspiring woman – not only onscreen, but also people like Ashley Eckstein from Her Universe. So with this outfit I felt quite happy and inspired and I hope you get some of that though the screen.

Recently I have been watching American Horror Story and I’m currently on season four, Freak Show (the quote above is a Freak Show quote). Which seems quite fitting considering I just went to a fair with my dear friend Thyra. I only went to the Circus once or twice as far as I rememeber and I would not go nowadays for the bad treatment of animals, but in a way I like the idea and I like it as a trope in movie and tv shows. I think especially the Twenties with their affinity for ghosts and seances match this idea so well. I would love to have a crystal ball or a way to communicate with spirits.

I’m quite interested in witchcraft and magic as well, I think it’s so fascinating how it has allways been part of human life through myths and healers. No matter if fortune telling, horoscopes and magic spells are pure fiction or not – the sole idea excisting throughout the decades astonishes me. I really hope the photos convey a fortune teller/psychic medium vibe.
