I Can't Stop Being Foolish

Today it was Winter and I pretended it was Summer.

Jumper and jumpsuit - second hand, shoes - Vans, bag - Cath Kidston
pins - Yippy Whippy and ebay

Wore this to an open house. It would be nice to be able to move sometime soon. I think it was a bit too nice for us though. Still, one can hope.

Music, games and presents.

A few things have been happening, like I graduated, but I haven't got the photos back in order to properly share it. In the meantime, here are some photos from today, from my band rehearsal. I'm in a band called Nun of the Tongue. I am the drummer.

This is our sexy lead singer, Oscar, also known as my boyfriend. 

This is our bass player Hamish, also known as our housemate.

In other news, we played Dungeon Quest for the second time yesterday, but the first time properly, since the real first time was spent trying to figure out the ridiculous combat rules. It's a really fun game but the combat rules are stupid.

So yeah. Perhaps we will think of an alternative way to speed up the combat, because it really interrupts the flow of the game. It's a fast paced, crazy sort of game, and that's the appeal, so it's kind of a bummer when it gets all boring during the fighting. Apart from that though, I really enjoy it. I love it that it's really easy to die, out of nowhere. And it's different every time.

My friend Zoe of Texta Chainsaw Massacre made me this badge, and it is the cutest, best badge ever!! I am in the process of making her something in return, but it will never make up for how cool it is. You can order them from her blog. And yes, it fits in a matchbox. <3

And this is my new camera, with which I took all the photos! It was a graduation present from my parents. Thanks, parents. It is REALLY fun. Now I can take proper photos for my blog. Hooray.

Cher. I need her huge, poofy Mermaids hair, I need her fringe, I need her clothes. Give me all of these. Also, I need to look like the receptionist from Beetlejuice.

Space face

I will join the bindi conversation. I guess I feel strongly that it's cultural appropriation, which is wrong, but then again I'm not sure whether what I'm wearing is so far removed and ridiculous as to render it ok. I feel ok wearing it, I feel like it wouldn't be associated with traditional bindis or Indian culture by anyone who saw it. I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing a traditional bindi, although I used to all the time when I was about twelve. I find them beautiful, but I don't think it's my place to appropriate them. There are a lot of arguments that people have made recently about them being solely fashion items that almost convince me... but I still have some hesitation, some level of discomfort, that I can't quite ignore. Nothing has convinced me once and for all that it's ok. They look very beautiful on a lot of people, and I'm not really judging them or wishing they wouldn't wear them... but I don't think I could wear one myself until I am fully comfortable that what I am doing is not harming anyone. This is the closest I will come. Hopefully nobody is offended.

Wishful Fringe

No need to explain. Everyone's into the 50's. I'm not sure I am, completely... but some aspects of it appeal to me. And I'm still being tortured by the thought of a fringe!

Spent my days off making a zine about stuff that I like, mostly so I can catalogue it all together, and remember it all when I'm making outfits... and also because it was fun.

Also these ghost earrings arrived in the post today and I am literally in love:

They are from this etsy shop and when I gather some more money I will be buying EVERYTHING IN THE SHOP. Literally. Soooo much cool stuff.
