Impromptu Photo Shoot

8

2010-12-31 23.00.00-33Did that grab your attention? lol Does a new photo shoot make up for my disappearance from the blog? Probably not, but at least it’s sort of exciting. My birthday was on September 16 and it seems like Summer ended super abruptly. It was barely 40 degrees yesterday! Not even remotely okay. I had a wonderful birthday and received a lot of housewarming gifts, which is awesome. I’ve got all my bathroom accessories now. ūüėĬ†I always splurge on myself around my birthday, too. That included buying a $100 pair of adorable cat face creepers and a bunch of stuff from VampireFreaks which I’m modeling in the photo shoot. The fishnet has returned. haha¬†Let’s jump on in!

Look Number One was a cute gothic style. I’ve wanted bone hair clips for a long time and found some on VampireFreaks. That’s also where the shirt with the creepy kids in the graveyard came from. How freaking cute is that?! I also got the spike choker and neon green bracelet from VF. Am I the only person freaked out by chokers? I’m afraid they will cut off my air supply. XD I actually cut a new hole in the choker to make it looser on my neck. I overcame the fear for the look. lol And then there are my adorable creepers. I have a real white cat at home and I couldn’t resist. I hope I don’t have to relinquish my Goth card now.

Look Number Two just sort of happened. A bit¬†Cybergoth on the sexy side.¬†I don’t think I’ve ever shown this much skin on here…I suppose I’m growing more comfortable with my body. I’ve never been skinny, I have skin problems and I don’t care. I love fishnet and being edgy, so that’s what I went with here. I hope I didn’t go over the top. But, that’s just who I am.

I had a blast putting these photos together and I’m so glad I made time to take them. I was all set to take the photos in my bare bones new house, but fate had other plans. I still pulled it off I think. Next, I think I’ll post some tags and soon comes my biggest announcement ever. You don’t want to miss it…trust me!

BubbleGoth Ring Tutorial

7

I love to make my own jewelry because I can create one-of-a-kind pieces that no one else will have. And you can’t really find the creepy stuff I like to wear at a super cheap price. Plus crafting is my idea of a good time.

Today I’ll show you how to make some BubbleGoth rings!

Materials:

~ Heart Stickers (Target)

~ E6000 Craft Glue (Jo-Ann Fabrics)

~ Adjustable Ring Bases

~ Monster High Erasers (Walgreens)

~ Assorted Gems (Jo-Ann Fabrics)

Step 1: Glue a heart sticker on your ring base using the E6000 glue. A little bit of glue goes a long way here. I have to say this glue stole my heart. It is just the best. It will glue anything to anything. Special thanks to Kerli for introducing me to this stuff. ‚̧

Step 2: ¬†Glue some gems onto your eraser. I used pink hearts and glued them on my bat’s wings.

Step 3:¬†Glue your eraser onto the ring base. Allow 24 hours to dry. You don’t want your BubbleGoth ring to fall apart!

Aw, I love my batty ring! I also made a skull ring using another eraser and some more gems.

I think I’ll wear my BubbleGoth rings to the next cemetery picnic. They are frighteningly adorable.
