The Miscellaneous

I have not been meaning to leave you all for this long but everything I wanted to write about is now gone some where and it doesn't help that I am speechless and in shock.  It really is amazing how one person in one day can have over ten different emotions and feelings flow through you.  My mind cannot focus on anything!  But I'm going to have to push through that. 

I have a picture of my hair redyed.  I had to pull up my bangs, which are growing out, out of my face.  And I must say that a picture can never do it justice.  My hair turned out a cherry red with at first a purple or pink tinge to it.  Clearly you can not see that from the picture.  It's so much brighter and redder than that.  Cruise you stinking camera!

Don't you just love the background.  Actually I do, but I mean for the picture.  One thing about my room, or dungeon as a certain little sister and brother call it and I am the dragon, is that I'm going for more of butterflies, stars, dragonflies and the like, I want to have a touch of fantasy and like a fairy world of sorts.  After all my room is my escape in a way.  I think it would be great if I could have those glow in the dark stars and planets I used to have as a little kid up on my ceiling.  Of course I want to have the dark and gothy touches too. 

In fact, even if it does seem a bit strange to me that I'm showing you a picture of my garbage box in my room, hey, why not.

It was originally a Goldfish box, I love Goldfish!  But I got bored with it, and was feeling in the mood for some arts and crafts and cutting up paper, so I had an idea.  And that was the idea. 

Last Sunday we invited my grandma over for some Chili Verde, which I love so much, and pie.  This pie was long over due as we planned to do it a month ago.  See I have been wanting to make pies.  It was a Chocolate Ghost Pie, and we used dark chocolate, or should I say "I" because my mom only looked over what I did.  It sat for longer than the recipe said but it still didn't set up so it was like pudding, but still so good and everyone liked it and ate it all gone.  I just had to put BOO on it, after all it was called a "Ghost" pie. 

Whipped cream!  Yep, you guessed it, I love whipped cream too, but really who doesn't?  It makes me want it just looking at it.

See why it's called the miscellaneous post?

Arm Warmer DIY Project

A while ago my sister gave me some old legging of her's to use.  There was still come material left, so I thought I should put it to use.  So I did!  I took the longest strip and folded it in half to they would make two even squares.  I cut it off and then cut in the middle of the fabric and made sure that each one was the same size.

I took a make shift arm warmer that I made with safety pins and laid it on top of the fabric in the picture above and began to sew up the side, following along.  Then once I got to where the opening for the thumb was in the other, I cut a whole, and then skipped up and sewed the top part.

After I sewed then up I went online and looked for picture of the skeletal structure of a hand.

Google Images

I put my arm warmers on and took a white crayon and while looking that that picture I felt where my bones were and colored with the white crayon and outline of where I felt my bones on my hand compared to the picture. 

After that I took out my fabric paint (white) and painted the picture following alone the line of the crayon some what.  The crayon was more for around where I should paint.  Then once that was done I just went over the painted over it again to make is whiter.

This was the result...

I think it turned out rather nicely.  All handmade and everything.  But, sadly the right said came out bigger and more too scale with my hand.

I got my hair redyed by the way!  It turned out like a cherry red with a hot pink or purple tinge to it instead of just red.  But I love it all the same.

The Goth Challenge - Day 30!

Day 30: Make a list of blogs you regularly read and link to them.

I read almost every post from all the blogs I follow, some more than others but that doesn't mean I like them less or more.  I also have a list of blogs on the right of this blog that I read the most often.

In no order what so ever...

And well, there you have it.  No one of them is better than the others and blogs I did not meantion are no less, I love them all, but those are the ones I read every post from, so the most regular.

    Day 28 & 29

    Day 28: Do you consider yourself an elder goth?

    Well, no I don't.  I actually don't have all that much to say on the matter.  But to me, an elder goth is at least a generation ahead of me.

    Day 29:  What do you think will happen to Goth in the future?

    I think that goth will either become more known in society or drift away, leaning more towards the first though.  And if it does I can't say that it's a good thing or a bad thing.  But I don't think there's much to worry about the mainstream taking more of the goth style and making it well, mainstream.  The fashion changes so much who knows.

    We Heart It

    It does seem to me though that in the future cyber goth may be on the front of the stage as it pears so be becoming quite popular, in a sense.   I have nothing against cyber goth, it's a great look.  But so are many others.  I think there needs to be not too much of any one fashion. 

    And I noticed that the good old 80's goth music that started back in the start of the subculture is not so common anymore.  I do have a bit of a problem with that, because I like the music.  Now I like more up-beat music too, but if it all starts to sound so alike then that's what I don't like.  I don't know if that will happen but you never know. 

    I just hope  that whatever will come in the future that no one fashion or music will take over, and that there will still be a wide rang of all of it. 

    And that's my honest opinion.

    Day 25, 26 & 27

    Day 25: Did you ever consider leaving the subculture?

    Yes actually.  Because I thought at times that maybe I was only fooling myself.  But I just couldn't and now don't want to, it just fits and to try and walk away would mean leaving some of myself behind as well.

    Day 26: Show a photo for every year that you've been into Goth.




    And there you have it! 

    Day 27: The worst thing you've ever done to a newbie.

    Umm... Nothing.  Nothing at all.

    Days 22, 23, 24

    Day 22: If you could attend any Goth event what would it be?

    I would love to attend Bats Day!  I would love to go to Disney Land one day, and even better yet would be on Bats Day.  This one would also be the most practical because it's only a two day drive to California.
    I would also like to go Under The Blue Moon festival in Australia, I've always wanted to go there too.  I will never say that I will never be able to go there, even if the chances of that happening are very slim.

    Another one would be the Drop Dead festival.  I really do like the deathrock look and a few deathrock bands, but mostly the look.  Or Whitby Gothic Weekend, that would be a cool one to go to.  And it's in England, which I really want to go to as well.

    Day 23: Your favorite artist or photographer.

    My favorite artist... You think I would have one, but I honestly don't.  I do have many great artist that I adore but no one favorite.  I love the works of the greats like Leonardo Da Vinci, he just amazes me.  Jan Von Eyck is another one, and how he made all his oil paintings so realistic.

    Another one is Paul Cezanne.  He's not my top favorite but I love this painting of his (picture on right), along with the skull pyramid. 

    I know I know of more but I just can't think of them right now.  And that bugs me so bad let me tell you!
    As far as photographer, I really don't know.

    Day 24: Name best websites for Goths.

    I have a couple on my link list for Christian goths.  I never really look around to websites really.  But I know that a lot of the blogs I follow are real good ones.

    That's all for now. 

    I had such a good time last night, I hate when good times like that have to end, I wish they would last for a long time...
