Hey there!
Today's outfit is a little different from usual. A friend had an Alice in Wonderland themed tea party for her birthday (I know, how freaking cute is that?!) and I was pretty happy for an excuse to dress up and go a bit crazy. The first thing I knew I needed was a petticoat, luckily being a member of my local theatre I popped into the wardrobe department and borrowed one (as welll as a little apron I decided against wearing for fear of looking too much like a maid). The rest I put together and in the end it turned out sort of gothic lolita.
The makeup was so much fun as well...although I wish I'd done something a bit more with my eyes, maybe added some black to the creases or something. Even though apparently it's not obvious the white swirls and pearls on my face are supposed to represent all the tears Alice cries - a whole lake of them in fact. I love using those pearls, I've got them in every colour imaginable and they make a really interesting addition (I used them as piercings here).
Anyway, this is a short post because as usual I am busy as hell. Next time I'll ramble a bit more about what's been going on in my life (since some people seem to actually enjoy this aspect on my blogging).
