8th Mar, 2014: I have always wanted a Vivienne Westwood orb necklace and armour ring. Back in August/September, when I went to London for Frock On and LondonEdge, I got my wish! I had a little splurge at the World’s End and got a souvenir of the otherwise very stressful trip.
I’ve been working on photographing my entire wardrobe (lolita and “general”) for the last year or so. I’m still nowhere near done, and hadn’t planned to share anything about the project for a while yet, but I just hit this point of my queue over there and I can’t help it.
Buying this necklace (and the armour ring) was probably one of the highlights of that trip. It was so stressful and dizzying otherwise (seriously; I’ve never had jetlag that bad before, but it actually made my head spin). It was a last minute stop, right before we hit the airport for our flight home, but it was so worth it.
Working on ideas for a coordinate based on Badb of the Great Queens. Lots of crows, lots of skulls. Probably going to reduce the claws to accents rather than one on each finger purely because of weight, and pair them with press-ons with equally gaudy decorations if I can find some. I do like how the rings layer and the overall “talon” effect though, so we’ll see.
After repeated requests for a Sailor V compact (and after falling in love with these swarovski star crystals), I finally made one! I’m really happy with how this turned out! The swarovski pointed-back star crystals are simply gorgeous. The crystals reflect cool blue tones and have an iridescent shine. Staring into the stars is like gazing into a star filled galaxy! Anyways, they are up for grabs now and will ship in approximately 1 week after purchase!
