Well, kittens, it's been quite a ride! We went to an event called the Monster Bash last night, and oh my goodness, much cavorting was had!
It was costume, so naturally, I went to town.Visible Monday at Patti's "Not Dead Yet Style" - go check it out!
The clothing items: my leather shirt (from the February capsule wardrobe), worn over my full vintage slip, a sort of patchwork skirt (last worn here with this month's black boots, and not yet in a capsule), and my Fluevog minis from this month (worn here, last outfit last weekend to go shopping).
My accessories are what takes this outfit to 11.
|Vizzini was totally freaked out by me in the wig.|
I'm also wearing my handmade leather and metal gauntlet that I bought at the Steampunk Con in April (pics here, the gauntlet is the last picture), which I also wore for L's birthday party in June, here.
The back action:
I'm wearing a gothic cross necklace and a leather choker.
L was a vampire!
|Kitty looks nervous.|
We made a great pair all night!
Shirt (Danier Leather, thrifted), slip (Suzette Lingerie, consignment), skirt (Dolcezza), harness (Audra Jean, via Megan Mae), boots (Qtee Mini, Fluevogs), gloves (Danier Leather), bag (consignment), gauntlet (SkinZnHydez).
My awesome friends also really dressed up. Check out Cat's fabulous flapper outfit!
A new friend, Berenice, joined us. She was a cat.
Check out this amazing re-purpose of my girlfriend Caro's wedding dress:
We all met up for dinner and drinks, then walked over to the event. We stopped in the square for some shennanigans:
The burlesque was totally fun, and there was musical acts as well, but my pictures didn't turn out (the lighting was too erratic). I did get a great shot of this guy's handmade chainmail shirt:
Joe*! He won a prize in the costume category as well.

Today, I spent with my soon-to-be 13 year old niece Zoe. Happy Birthday, sweetie! But oh, man...
|Please make the light go away|
At least I looked decent. I last wore my red cardi here on Day 1 with my barn skirt, and that's my snowflake skirt (last worn here, 2nd outfit). The top underneath is just a layering piece (not in the capsule). I should have worn my black sweater but I wasn't thinking too clearly at 10 am. Not after going to bed after 3 am...
The leather obi is so cool. I am just loving obis right now.
|Please just chop my head off now|
We also got her a beautiful Shi Studio leather wrist-wrap and a gorgeous pair of leather booties by Fidji. She's old enough to start getting better quality stuff, and I was proud of her for wanting to skip most of the mall stores and look at local boutiques. She's nearly ready to learn how to thrift with me!
Sweater (no label, consignment), top (Mossimo, consignment), skirt (J.J.F., consignment), shoes (Marc Softwalk, thrifted), belt (consignment), choker (locally made).
We made a stop at Footloose*, the sister store of Heart and Sole, where I got the Fluevog sandals on Friday. I spotted these gorgeous Agnes Adrian boots (where Agnes is the name and Adrian is the family) on final markdown. They were the last pair so I got another 10% off.
*I link 'cause I love - this is a great local shoe store!
The harness is removeable.
I like the soles:
|These were small-fitting size 10s. Fluevog's sizing is so erratic.|
