GRANPIRE STUFF!

Some outfits and shopping lately... 

If you are a Vintage Vamp and like old fashion like myself, you'll appreciate this post and all the crazy stuff I like and buy. I like inspiring people to be a little different and not be afraid to wear colour when you're a Goth! I guess my wardrobe is half Granny and half Spooky Cute, a nice combination that keeps life interesting! 

Vintage 1940s jumper in green! I love this one, its a nice green. Worn with a short a-line skirt, torn stockings and Dr. Martens. 

Vintage granny cardigan in a pastel yellow, I like yellow a lot! Teamed with some Bat necklaces, Grave bobbles and a Coffin brooch.  

One of my favourite Dracula T-shirts V--V 

My eye makeup is a combination of black eye shadow and Kat Von D's Metal crush in Paranoid. Blue eye makeup is by far my favourite and suits me best, it's definitely a conversation starter. 

V--V

Some things I've bought recently... a spooky doll from Savers as part of there Halloween collection, another doll that made me think of the Baby Jane Hudson doll in the original Movie 1962 and some floral teacups. 

I also scored BIG in the book department!

Ghosts and Vampire stuff, HELL YEAH! I've been wanting Violin by Anne Rice.

Some thrifted a-line skirts to wear with my Spooky tops.

and some Vintage granny stuff. That shirt is pretty cute and that cardigan is a lovely yellow. 

I'm always on the hunt for Dark Shadows inspired dresses, obviously these are not the colours but I love making my photos look this way.

The dress to the right I already have and when I saw another one, I thought i'd better grab it as these types of dresses are hard to find.

I really like that plaid one which in real life; is red and green. All these dresses were $10 each! I'm an Op shopper and like to buy bundles of cheap stuff. 

Some incense and oil purchases from the week. Thanx for reading xox

Movies!

This weeks movie is The Lady Killers 1955. I want to live with sweet little Mrs. Wilberforce in her cute granny home, she's just adorable!!! I know, I know i'm a goth but I love my granny stuff! Old movies really inspire me. I need to get a new basket, but can I find the right one? NO!!! Hard to find the perfect size, something on the smaller side and would love to line it with granny squares. Any way, enjoy my granny stuff xox

Hand Poked Tattoo!

On Tuesday I got to experience getting a hand poked tattoo by the lovely Tamara from @babavesterka at a tattoo shop called @crucibletattooco

It was wonderful and so different to a machine, it felt therapeutic actually.  

Tamara working her magic ever so elegantly.

Almost done...

and all complete, my gorgeous little spider! So magical and powerful. Thank you so much lady, you rock! x 



The rest of the day was spent in Melbourne CBD taking pics of my favourite buildings, snooping at old book shop windows and stocking up on wool roving for some up coming needle felt projects.  

While I was taking this pic the church bells were ringing.


So sweet!

Owls and books.

Some New Stuff!

I finally wore my The Adventures of Magic Mushrooms t-shirt from www.wickedclothes.com I love it! I also bought Let's Summon Demons which I wore a few weeks back, these t-shirts are really good quality and fun to wear.  


I did a bit of Halloween shopping last week, very exciting time for us spooky people. I found some beautiful Spiderweb and Spider fabric, actually mum picked it for me as we were out together, she said this is really pretty and would look nice on your bed, like a bed spread. I took it over to the counter and asked for 2 meters and as the lady was cutting it mum says, aww poor spider! I said, HAHA only our family would say that!  

When I bought it home I thought, it would actually look great and better on my Tarot table, i'm quiet pleased with it and thank you mum for picking such a lovely fabric for your little Tarot Sorceress, Vampire daughter V--V 

I'ts so lush! 

Here it is amongst other Halloween fabrics, and the fact that i'ts red and black makes me very happy.

I loved the glitter spiderwebs too!  


Halloween shopping is getting much better in Australia which is great! 

I also bought some of those spiderweb bowls.

and some spiderweb table cloths and purple glitter spiders.

Outings!

Dressed as though I belonged to Picnic at Hanging Rock for an outing to the Art Gallery of Ballarat. 

This delicate dress is a cream colour and is so light to wear, I felt like a ghost! 

A Granpire Ghost...


Such a wonderful Australian story.

Nice and warm in my coat, it was freezing on this particular day and we had lots of hail it almost snowed. 


I had a lovely afternoon floating around the gallery, we specifically went to see the David LaChapelle exhibit, it was great! Here are some random pictures of the day, enjoy! xox
