Cleavers, Coffins, and Cuteness

I originally wanted to do these pictures around Halloween time, but I do enjoy wearing “spooky” style clothing all year round so posting them now is not a problem for me. Especially when it comes from Kreepsville 666.

If you’ve followed me for awhile, you already know how much I love the brand Kreepsville 666 so it should come as no surprise that I wanted to take photos in some newer pieces from them that I hadn’t really shown online. The only exception is that I believe I wore it in one of my youtube videos, but that’s it. I’ve bought a few new items from them, but I wanted to show off this particular outfit because I love wearing it out. This included, a new top, skirt, and accessory. I also wanted to show off my cute coffin-shaped Vampira towel that I got awhile ago but hadn’t gotten the chance to post pictures of it.

Everything I’m wearing in these photos with the exception of my high heels, are all from Kreepsville 666. 

I really liked the mood and lighting in these photos. It showed the details of my clothes and my makeup beautifully.  By the way, for my makeup, I used Anastasia of Beverly Hills, “Modern Renaissance,” eyeshadow palette, and used Smashbox, liquid lipstick in “Bawse.” I love fashion so anytime I can show and share something new, I jump right on it. These photos were fun to do as well.

 

I don’t really need to talk too much about Kreepsville’s brand here because I’ve reviewed, done other shoots in their clothes, and have mentioned them a lot in the past. If you haven’t seen my past posts on Kreepsville 666, please check them out. I will say tho, that I have never gotten anything from them that I regretted buying, which is always a good thing.

These new pieces include, my “Cleave Me Alone” cardigan which has really cute cleaver buttons, my “Spiderweb  White” skater skirt, and my “Hypno ?” single hair bow. I’m glad I also included my coffin Vampira towel in these shots. I hope you like these pictures and I appreciate and thank everyone for reading, following, and supporting me and my blog here.

My Favorite Clothing Brands

If you haven’t seen my article here of my favorite accessory brands that  I posted not too long ago, definitely check it out. I have so many brands that I love it’s very hard to choose my favorites. I decided to write about the labels that I wear the most. Some of them, I’ve already mentioned in my favortie accessories  and in  past articles where I did photoshoots with some of these brands, but still wanted to include them here and why they’re my favorites. After the lists of my favorite clothing designers, I will post one of my clothing pieces underneath them.

1. Sourpuss- have written and talked about Sourpuss for a long time and also photographed in their clothes plus done many photoshoots for them. There are many reasons why I love this brand. The first thing is how the clothing is sized. They are consistent with their sizing unlike other brands. For example. if you buy a dress in your size, mostly any other dresses will be the same, making it easier to buy clothing online because you already know your perfect size.

2. Banned apparel, “Dancing Days.”- Is another vintage and rockabilly style brand, as well as they also create alternate punk clothing.

3. Hellbunny clothing brand and also Voodoo Vixen – And here are another two fabulous, retro, vintage inspired brands.

4. I.N.C- Stands for International Clothing.I love the brand I.N.C and first discovered  them of course at Macy’s, years ago. Their clothing is very classic, and stylish. And like Sourpuss Clothing, their sizings are the same no matter what clothing style you are looking for. They are also an inexpensive; not cheap, brand and the quality is absolutely wonderful. Another similar brand that I love which the quality is amazing is Michael Kors. Some of Kors clothing can be more expensive but again the quality is amazing and will last you for a very long time.

My fabulous I.N.C zebra collared sweater blouse and also my fabulous Michael Kors cheetah and gold chain dress!

5. Betsey Johnson– I already mentioned Betsey in my favorite accessory blog article but I needed to add her here again because I love her clothing as well. I’ve loved Betsey Johnson for so long that I can’t pinpoint the exact time. Her stuff is so unique and she is never afraid to take risks. Her patterns and colors are always so cute and pretty. I love the cute cut of her clothing. I wish I still she had her boutique. I shopped there a lot when I lived in San Francisco. You can find her stuff online, Macy’s, Nordstroms, and other other places. Whenever I see anything  new from her, I always get so excited. Betsey’s clothing always makes me so happy.

6. Kreepsville 666- Check out the first Kreepville photoshoot I did last year with my “BEAUTY GHOUL DROPOUT” tank with my Pink latex SKULL purse. I’m doing a Kreepville shoot next week which I’m so excited about. I KNOW YOU ALL WILL LOVE IT!!!! The best thing about Kreepsville666 is that they mix a lot of my favorite genres, rockabilly, horror, psychobilly, goth, with punk horror. For some people, shopping Kreepsville is the perfect time of the year now since we are closer to Halloween, but if you are like me, it’s ALWAYS the the perfect time of the year wear KREEPSVILLE 666. Hehe!

It took awhile for me to get it because it sold out right away but were able to get the witchy brushes right away. Last night I received my palette finally and had to do a a part one and two makeup tutorial today.

The Dark Side of Lily

  You all saw my very spooky and awesome post titled, “Pretty Ghouls,” where my girl Sandy made me a dark Princess Lily ring from the movie, “Legend,” and she put a fabulous idea in my head to do an interpretation of the makeup she wore when the character “Darkness,” aka Tim Curry changes her from the innocent princess Lily to the dark goth-like princess. Here are some photos of me channeling the darkness of Lily. This makeup was a lot of fun to do. I also included a makeup tutorial of how I created this look with all the products I used. Enjoy and thank you again Sandy!

My Gothic Mystery Bag

img_0903

This evening when I came home from work I found a special treat in my mail box. I was so excited. It was my Gothic Mystery Bag that I ordered last week. The bag was from Dysfunctional Doll and it’s a called a ” Gothic Mystery Bag,” because when you open it, you don’t know what surprises you’ll see inside. Each box is different and contains at least $50 (usually more) of apparel, jewelry, purses, and more. When I saw that the mystery box was available now, I thought it was such a fun and cool concept. It’s also perfect for a Halloween present or other occasions Because every box is different, it gives a nice personal and special feel to it.

Here are the items I received tonight which I absolutely love. I can’t wait to rock them out work tomorrow. There’s not one thing I don’t like or wouldn’t wear or use.

My Baby Sister Caitlin

 

Ok so there is a brand new girl at my job and she is a makeup artist and beauty coordinator like me. She started at my job a few weeks ago but since I was in Vegas for one of the weeks, I didn’t meet her until yesterday and immediately it was love at first sight. Her name is Caitlin and during our morning meeting, I noticed her right away; her raven black hair, red lipstick, alabaster skin.  I was thinking that this girl looks amazing. Once the meeting was over and work was about to start, Caitlin came up to me and said that she was so happy that there was another girl in cosmetics with a similar style to her. I told her I felt the same way. We laughed and chatted a bit about some of the same things we liked and I decided we were kindred spirits. We then started telling people we were sisters because we almost looked exactly the same. It was a lot of fun tricking some of the woman there and I think Caitlin will continue to tell people that we are sisters cause even though I just met her, I feel like she is my sis. Work was definitely fun.

I wanted to blog about her not only because she is awesome, but because she represents a lot of the themes I have to my blog such as, she is a rock and roll chick like me, has a sexy alternative style, (Clothing and makeup,) we share the love for the same bands, OUR LOVE FOR THE HORROR GENRE, AND more. The fact the we have both been to the same goth style bars such as “Bar Sinister,” in L.A, love the same music, and love the gothic scene, and more, is amazing.

I did a little video of her to introduce her and I’m sure I’ll blog about her soon but thought you would love these beautiful photos of us and video of Caitlin.

Make sure to check out her amazing photos on her instagram,  https://www.instagram.com/caitlinmaxsonn/?hl=en

Love you girl and THANK YOU CAITLIN FOR THE “FOUND MY TWIN, snap chat photo!
