Something Wicked This Way Comes...

Outfit Details- T-shirt: Old Navy, Skirt: Vintage, Socks: Tim Burton art exhibit, Necklace: Etsy
Yesterday I forgot to take pictures because I was at school until dinner time taking measurements for costumes, so I didn't take these until almost midnight. That's why they're kind of terrible, and have bad lighting, but I'm really good at measuring inseams now! Also, I was super tired, so I didn't check to make sure I got a good picture or anything before I went to bed. They kind of work with the theme and everything, though.
I realized that there aren't really any super goth kids at my school. Like, there are kids who wear black and one girl in my French class wears these really cool monster horns sometimes with different colored wigs, and there are definitely some "emo" kids, but as far as I've seen, there aren't any all out, white makeup faced, black lipped goths. That just seemed sad. I mean, how will we ever reach stereotypical high school dynamic, now? So, obviously, I had to take this heinous matter into my own hands, and went goth. Well, at least for a day.
Also, I was just bored. Both bored yesterday morning, and just bored with my clothes/outfits. I know my clothes are anything but boring, but you know how sometimes it just feels like you've been wearing close to the same sort of thing for a while, and it just gets boring? I mean, I still love my clothes, and don't intend to change the way I dress anytime soon, but I just wanted to do something different. So, I did what bored teenagers have been doing for decades when wanting something different, and pulled out the white stage makeup and black lipstick.
I straitened my already almost stick-straight hair (although it started to wave a little by the end of the day), mixed white (technically clown) makeup with just a little regular foundation, so as not to look to much like a clown (I feel like there's irony somewhere in there), and used black eye-liner liberally. I wore a long-sleeved black T-shirt with a floor-length black skirt. I like this skirt because it's got a really thin overlay that clings to the rest of it, but floats out a little bit at the bottom, and reminds me of smoke or a shadow or something. I wore black Mary-Janes, too, but I took them off before I took my pictures, and didn't feel like wearing shoes.
Of course, I also had to carry around my little book of Edgar Allen Poe stories, and listen to almost nothing but The Smiths all day, although I kind of do both of those everyday...
I hope you're all having glitterific days!


  1. I love think your hair looks especially awesome in this! Unfortunately, I have yet to actually see even the hint of a highschool subculture at my school. I mean besides self proclaimed "hipsters" of the tumblr variety. *Sigh* Anyways, The Smiths are an awesome band.

    1. Thanks! The Smiths really are awesome, though.
