I don’t do these often but when I do, I like to show everything and do them in a fun way so sometimes you’ll see ootd photos or videos like today. I wanted to do this video to show my spooky sexy outfit for getting my first batch of 2019 Halloween decorations at Michael’s, my home away from home. Here’s my video of my Outfit of the Day.
Video plus a list and pics of all the brands and tutorials I did in the video. Enjoy!
I accomplished a lot of things today. Errands, cleaning, organizing, doing my art, starting my first story, etc. and as a fun post, I wanted to share my outside look today and what I did when I got home.
Sporting my “RedRum” lipstick, I didn’t have time to do my hair how I normally would’ve liked to because I was running late to an appointment, but I sported my cartoon “Beatles” tank that I first showed off in my “10 summer outfit” post last year with my black Peplum blazer, my dark denim jeans cuffed with my red and white bow high heels, and last but not least, my “AbbyNormal” (Young Frankenstein) necklace.
When I got home, I washed my face, applied my favorite “Fresh” rose mask, and took a nice soak After I changed into one of my beautifully multi-colored kaftan that I had recently got that made me feel regal from the long flowing material. One of my projects today was organizing my closet wear I keep my wigs. I found one of my fun purple wigs that I never wear and decided to slip it in to get my “CREATIVE ORGANIZATIONAL” juices flowing. There was no way I was going to put my makeup back on but I applied my prismatic “Alien Tears” topper from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I completed my fun at home look with one of my many crystal pieces, my adventurine cluster hair comb.
Today wasn’t the day that I thought it would be when I woke up. It was better. I felt more positive about the day when I was out and about than when I first woke up. It was a good day and I encourage you all to something fun and kooky, like running around in a crazy wig, if you want to change your mood. Thank you all for reading about my day. Sending lots of love to you all.
FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY, I got to interview and write a feature on the extremely talented hat and fascinator designer, Debra Shirley. You all know who she is from my Victorian photoshoot I did last year, my Burlesque shoot I did last year, my recent article on her with my latest hat from her in the, “BLACK VEILED BEAUTY” article, and more. If you haven’t seen all those posts, click on her tag here or type her name into SEARCH here to see all the posts I’ve done on her.
Here is my interview that I did with her. I absolutely am in love with Debra and her talent!!
Alright I have done many many many articles on jewelry and accessories, especially unique jewelry that is handmade and/or you can’t find anywhere else. I got a brand new store and special friend that creates amazing handmade unique jewelry. Her name is Jenna Michals and her company is Little Black Bats which is such a cute name. I instantly connected with her and her work. Little Black Bats mostly makes Halloween, spooky, and magical inspired pieces but they also make fun and funny pieces as well. I’ll include the store information at the end of course.
I bought two pieces from Little Black Bats. The first one is my dark circus cluster necklace which reminds me of a spooky Alice in Wonderland piece.
The second one I bought was a my “DEAD BUT DELICIOUS” green and black necklace which the moment I saw it in Jenna’s shop I had to have it. It’s a quote from a brilliantly funny and spooky film spoof called, “What we do in the shadow” from New Zealand. (By the way, if you haven’t seen that movie, you MUST see it. I connected with my sister Suzy Owen who is also from there, and we both saw it together the same night, just on different sides of the world.)
Here is how Little Black Bats got started. Hope you enjoy this article and you must check out Jenna and the shop:
“Little Black Bats was born out of frustration of needing a creative outlet. In the very beginning, I was making laser-cut acrylic jewelry, but soon after realizing it wasn’t the right medium for me, I changed gears and started working with shrink plastic. It gave me the freedom I was looking for to create, and three years later, the wheels haven’t stopped turning. I seek inspiration from everything—mainly music, movies, gothic and horror subcultures, medical oddities, and more.”
Another thing I adore about Jenna as a person and why I think we became fast friends is that we have a lot of important things in common, besides both liking spooky fun, stuff include that we’re both artists, we both believe in supporting artists, we both have a strong work ethic, and more. Definitely check Little Black Bats on all their social media sites and especially the store. You won’t be disappointed.
