Annual Costume Challenge Number 4!!

Currently Listening To: “Perfect Skin” – The 69 Eyes

It’s been ages since I’ve posted here and I’m sorry about that. ^.^” I really don’t know if this is the beginning of posting again, but I want to try. I miss my friends I’ve made here. And I have much to tell.


Officially announcing the beginning of my 4th annual costume challenge! 😀

This where you suggest costumes for me to create using only the items I already own. Whether I get many suggestions or not, I have some costumes already in mind to try to recreate (not this time xD) I will also be taking this to Instagram, so feel free to head over there as well.

Some of my favorites from past years….


  • This will not include my own personal costume for the year; that costume will be posted separately nearer Halloween/on Halloween.
  • This will not include items/clothing I happen to pick up/purchase during the months of September-October.
  • I will begin recreating costumes anytime in September and go through October or until I am out of requests/my own inspirations.
  • I will accept requests throughout the entirety of September.
  • Costume includes; clothes, make-up, and props if there is any needed/I have.

Costume requests so far (will update as requests are made):

  • Horned Goddess
  • Gothic Raggedy Anne
  • Chibi – The Birthday Massacre
  • Emilie Autumn


Aaaand that’s it! I will be pinning this post to the front and can’t wait for this year. Have fun guys.

Late Night Ramblings…

Currently Listening To: “Lost Boy” -Ruth B


Hey. It’s been a bit since I’ve written any kind of proper post. October was hectic and I’ve been busy and in a slump. But I’ve recently been coming out of my blocked and depressive state. I’ve been finishing short stories and abandoned sketches and creating new. I cannot sleep, so I thought I’d sit here and tell you guys about some things that have happened the past month and other things.


So, first was that I was in a creative slump and block. I had no ideas for all my current projects. All my stories got put aside and I struggled with doing the things I already had done/things I enjoyed. Even though I love this season, the loss of daylight kills me. I love being outside, but the cold temps and short daylight are shit. On the warmer days I got outside and raked leaves to jump into them. Still haven’t been in the woods lately, even though I think the whole clown thing is settling down. That’s just too much for my little anxious spaz self.

I also finally recieved my big, dream, Goth, boots. Fucking love them. I’ve been wearing them religiously and loving it. They’re super easy to walk in and I’m tall! As long as my little sister doesn’t put on her heels, I’m as tall as her, hehe 😀 I bought them from Drew Disaster and they are perfect. *o*


Speaking of little sister. Guess who got her first job? 😀 Whee! I’m so happy. She started on Halloween, so I went trick-or-treating alone, but I brought her plenty candy back.

I love my costume this year. I was a Forest Fae. I made the bulk of it from a 2xl pair of pants from the thrift store and then random scraps of fabric I had around. And who knew I had boobs? I surely didn’t, but it looks like I have some in the picture. Woop! The power of illusion!

I also adore my make-up, especially the brows. I may need to just do this make-up regularly. I feel so pretty c:

Brows. I have been loving my brows this month. They look pretty cool :3
img_2219 img_2211 img_2021

Especially those bat brows. I wore those so much this past month. They’re super easy and gorgeous.


So, earlier in the school year, I finished three clases in one week. That meant I needed to pick a few more (I only have elective credits left to get). I decided to take German. It was the only thing that really piqued my interest. One of my favorite artists (Anna Blue) is German and I’d love to listen to her German versions of her songs instead of the English. I have two friends in Germany, and Germany is on the list of places to visit (after Japan and Ireland :3). It can’t hurt to learn a new language. 


This fucking U with two dots over it. Like the explanation they gave for prouncing it…  “Pronounced by rounding lips as if to whistle and without moving lips, say the ee in bee” It does not sound any different than if I were to not purse my lips and say the ee sound. Everything else is pretty easy picking up, but this goddamn U. It’s pissing me off.

Also, in the middle of me working through the class, someone decides to fucking update the program and I lose all progress I made. When I first saw that it showed I had no progress, I started panicking and it was just not a good morning. My mom was contacting people who weren’t very helpful and just insinuated that I hadn’t even started the class, even though I have a notebook filled with the goddamn notes. So I had to go back through and redo the classes to get my progress back, so that no teachers would yell at me for not having any progress. 

Fuck you whoever decided that in the middle of the year was a good time to update the fucking program. You probably fucked up everyone’s fucking progress. I was damn near an anxiety attack. Fuck you. And you know what, the new program fucking sucks. It doesn’t give all the translations and it’s very hard on my eyes and my grasping of the language. The old was perfectly fine the way it was. (needs to take a breather, she cannot properly construct a coherent sentence without the word fuck)


Anyone, let’s move onto something happier and less stressful.

I wanna buy this pattern and make a million of these. I don’t need a million, but I want a million anyway.

The girl modeling the hoods even looks like a pixie(I want her face)! I neeed this pattern. I wanna make a pixie hooded dress. :c Gaaah. These are so cute! (more incoherent babbling)


I also have two little exciting pieces of news. One I’m going to save for later. But I’ll let you guys in on the other one. c: 


I have started undergoing setting up an online store. I’ve been working hard on getting pictures and listing everything. Right now it’s just the jewelry (it will be utter hell listing all those bows). I have a few clothing pieces up too. All I need to do is take a trip to the post office to get some quotes on shipping prices so I can set up shipping prices. After that, I will be opening the store and you guys will be the first to know. c: I am really excited for this and cannot wait to get started on this new endeavor. I hope you guys will find something as well if you’re interested. I may even add some of my old clothes as well (a yard sale full of babybat clothes doesn’t sell well…)

Hopefully I can get that all set up soon.


So I think I’ve said everything I need to. Hopefully I will get back to regular posts and even posting some short stories soon. c: I’m slowly getting my creative spark back and some of my motivation. So maybe keep an eye out for all that. c: Now I need to get to bed. It’s nearly two a.m., haha.

Bye guys~

Instagram Girl and Goth Girl Costume

Currently Listening To: “Louder Than Your Love” -Andy Black

Our usual selves

Initionally this started as me doing a costume for a Instagram/basic white girl costume. But then my little sister decided to do me for a costume. Sooo… here we are. ;p 

Instagram Girl Costume:
img_2144 img_2145 img_2149 img_2150 img_2164 img_2165 img_2166 img_2169 img_2171 img_2175 img_2180img_2195

For this I wore my holey tights backwards with a black tank top. My little sister loaned me a cardigan and infinity scarf from her own closet (and her phone for the selfie prop). I also flipped the tops down of my winter boots. My little sister did my bun for me and I miraculously did my own make-up and eyebrows! Woop! They came out much better than I expected. :3


Goth Girl Costume:
img_2205 img_2186 img_2202 img_2197 img_2198 img_2190

For this costume my little sister wore black skinny jeans, tank top, boots, and fancy jacket. I loaned her a couple bat necklaces. She did her own make-up and it’s super awesome too! She looks like such an elegant Goth :3


We had fun :3 Hehe. I had a lot of fun mimicking all those “artsy” selfies. My little sister makes such a cute Goth /)^.^(\  Let us know your thoughts down below! I shall post again soon! Bye 😀

Costume Challenge: Ronnie Radke; Falling in Reverse “The Drug in Me is You”

Is it bad that I think I look hot in this costume? xD Haha. Maybe if my make-up was well done…  I also could not keep a straight face through this whole thing. Kept losing my belt as well.

I had wanted to do this costume a couple years ago when I had the perfect stripped tank top for it, but it never happened. While I was looking in my closet one day, I saw my stripped t-shirt and got the idea again. Haha. I had fun fucking around in this ~ therefore a lot of bloops…

At the time, I had no layers (a week later, I end up giving myself choppy layers again…) so the hair did not cooperate with me. The make-up was harder than I thought. I didn’t want eyeliner all over my eyelid, so I used pencil, liquid, and eyeshadow to keep it in place. Also, ended up beign a little too generous with the eyebrows… looks like sloppy “instagram girl”, “bitch” eyebrows xD

img_1982img_2004img_2002 img_1983 img_1980 img_1985 img_1987 img_1990 img_1999 img_1988 img_1994img_2009

Thrift: T-shirt, boots, studded and eyelet belt, chain, vest.

Spencer’s: Ouija belt, handcuffs.

Really fun and easy one. I shall return soon with the other request; feel free to add anymore below or on the official post.  I will try to get a few DIY’s I have done up as well. c: Stay tuned for that! Bye guys!

Currently Listening To: “Trick or Treat” -Ghost Town


Didn’t think you’d hear from me so soon? Well… neither did I…..

But I am excited to share some spooky goodies with you all!

My craft store is amazing. It’s the middle of July and they already have so much Autumn and Halloween stuff out. :3 I’m excited for when the black roses and leaves come out so I can make an Autumn floral crown. c: Been meaning to do this for years, I just get sidetracked with everything else.

IMG_1452 IMG_1451 IMG_1450

They also have Halloween faery garden supplies! I grabbed a couple things today. It’s not boys that make my heart flutter, it’s Halloween supplies.
IMG_1453 IMG_1454
I loved the little book, and the coffin I can store things in. Can’t wait to see what else will be coming out.

This also inspired finishing a drawing I did not plan to finish at all. I was originally just doing over the pose I drew in my Aurelio Voltaire song drawing. But then I came home from the craft store and ended up creating an Autumn piece c:

Two pictures done within two days, I feel pretty productive and creative. I still have some ideas for drawings as well, so there will undoubtedly be more to come. I should do a watercolor of Danni! 
I really love this new sketchbook, the pages are thick enough to not deteriorate fast, but also not too thick that I hate it. It was in the school supply section as well, so it was really inexpensive. I need to stock up on these things, haha.

There’s not much else reason for this post, other than to get everyone pumped for the Halloween season. Woop! I have decided to do something simple this year. I am going to be a mischevious fae. c: I already have the faery skirt for it and I’m basically one xD So, I just need to draw up some ideas. I’ll show you guys that once it has happened.
Also, going to do my costume challenge again this year, so think up some tough costume ideas! 


Well, I guess I’ll leave you all for now. I have rambled on enough about Halloween for now. Do any of you guys have your costumes in order yet? I’m curious as to what y’all are doing this year! Bye for now!

Just A Random Post

Currently Listening To: “Good Vibes Only” -Blood on the Dance Floor

My little sister was very camera-happy today, so I just kept jumping into her photos. Hehe. :3 She loves filters, so all of these have some kind of filter or another.


My possession photos xD That first one is both of our favorites. Hehe. (I was leaning back in the front seat to get into her photo ~ she was in the back seat)


IMG_0062 IMG_0063

In the thrift store. I have a thing with my tongue it seems.


Being all weird and shit.



My personal favorite of all.

We went to the thrift store today in search of some things to cut up for a project I was working on (all finished!). I found the perfect thing to cut up along with a couple other things.

IMG_0067 IMG_0066

I found a velvet bed skirt that I’m going to cut up and use for skirts and things. Also a huge thing of fuzzy black fabric for fifty cents! Hehe, cyber leg warmers here I come! There will be many DIY posts I assure you (one for sure is coming soon ~ it’s pretty cool :3)

I also found my sister an ultra girly necklace (still in it’s Forever 21 packaging) and an unopened pack of hooks and eyes <~ really needed those. I was taking apart old bras for some of those xD

I was a faerie today! (Same as every day) I really love how my make-up came out today. It was meant to match the colors of the shirt I was wearing and ended up all fae-ish and things. ^u^ It’s grey and black, but for some reason it’s coming off as brown in the picture.

IMG_0060 IMG_0059

Whee, a wild little sister spotted in her natural environment ~ on the phone.


I’ve been having fun doing my little eyebrow chunk. It’s mostly been little faerie dots, but I came up with a dragon inspired look and I tried doing scales for my brows (failed and ended up doing my fae dots, but hey I tried). It’s been a week since I’ve had half of that wonky eyebrow shaved and my mom just now noticed. 

I haven’t even been trying to hide it. I’ve had my hair up most of the week because it was all greasy and shit. How in Hades…..?


Anyway, I finished my binge of Soul Eater. I really liked it. :3 Too many favorite characters. But the one that has been my favorite throughout the entire thing was Soul. He’s pretty cool (no pun intended). Others are Kid, Justin, Eruka, Maka, and Crona. Gaah, they’re all such cool characters. The animation is usally not my favorite, but it really grew on me as I was watching and enjoying the show. It feels weird seeing the animation style I like now xD (Tokyo Ghoul). My mom kept coming into my bedroom to ask what in hell I was laughing about. 
Me: They’re gonna move the OCD kid’s pictures over two inches if he loses the basketball game.
Mom: Well that’s mean.

Hehe, I loved it. Plus, T.M.Revolution’s song “Resonance” is one of the opening themes. Hell yeah! I love T.M.Revolution. My first foreign musical love. ^u^


I’m onto Tokyo Ghoul now ~Becasue no actual flesh and blood friends~  Next will be Corpse Party. Then I am out of ones I want to see. Any reccomendations are appreciated! I will list all the ones I’ve seen.
*gives Sissy a little nudge* Help me ;-; 

Vampire Knight
Fairy Tail
Fullmetal Alchemist
Negima (I want to watch this again at some point ~ it was really cute)
Ouran Highschool Host Club
Black Butler
Deltora Quest
Junjou Romantica (=u= hehe)
Death Note
Lucky Star
Soul Eater (obviously xD)
Boku No Pico (No shame! =u= hehe)
To Love-Ru

I feel like I’m missing some. Hmm, oh well, I shall just add to this as they come to mind.
Um, I think that’s all for today. ^u^  Aside from my sister calling me “boy stupid”. I’m not boy stupid, I’m just regular stupid. ><


Anyway, how were you guys’ days? Anything fun? Or productive? I shall be back later (hopefully with a DIY post. I’m super excited for it)

Frankie Stein Costume

Currently Listening To:

My make-up looks like shit today. I re-drew my eyelashes so many times and they still look like shit. Gaah. But we won’t be seeing those anyway. ^u^ This is just for the costume! 

Frankie-monster-high Profile_art_-_Frankie_Stein

I was prompted to do this because I found this blue plaid skirt and my first thought was Frankie. SO… onto the pictures! (And as always… there are pictures taken that I had no idea about until I look through them… that’s just how my little sister rolls.) So, I borrowed a pair of my sister’s shoes for this (not only is she taller than me, her feet are longer too…) and it’s not only difficult to walk in heels, but heels that are several sizes too big as well ~ that is where all the bloops come from) Let’s be honest though, if it weren’t for my sister’s secret photos of me being a flop, these posts wouldn’t be as fun c:

IMG_3924 IMG_3928 IMG_3930IMG_3931 <~ This one is my favorite.



I was walking so badly. Guess what else that sneaky little shit did? She took it up a step and tried filming my awful walking (I realized she was filming when I turned around and saw her watching the screen…) At least she didn’t get proof of me walking like some giant dumbass child. xD


IMG_3932 IMG_3933 IMG_3934


What I used for this costume was all from my closet (most of it thrifted).

  • White Tank Top (Walmart)
  • Black Corset (Thrifted)
  • Black little Jacket (Thrifted)
  • Blue Plaid Skirt (Thrifted)
  • Black Heel/Wedge/Thing monstrosities (Borrowed from sister)
  • Black and White stripped Tie (Claire’s)
  • Studded Belt (Thrifted)
  • Detachable Chains (Made)
  • Blue Skull Bracelet (Good Mystery Bag)

I probably would have put on the jacket, then the tank top on top and then the corset over it all, to look more exact. But that would mean unlacing and re-lacing the corset to accommodate all the clothing underneath it. I still like how it looks anyway. c: I had fun. The Make-up for this will come soon. I’m probably just going to use an old photo of the make-up I did. I cannot get anything to come out right lately, make-up wise. It’s terrible.

Anyway, I hope you guys enjoyed! Let me know what you think c: I shall post again soon!
