Valentine's Vampire!

My Valentine's Day outfit! Posting days late but I have been quite busy. Naturally I wore RED I love red, matches my Aries fiery soul. The cardigan was a thrift find and the fabulous Necromancy t-shirt comes from Wicked Clothes, own a few of their tees now love them! My lovely husband and I went out to dinner at Hofbräuhaus Melbourne followed by sweets at Brunetti, we had a great evening ❤

Goth Craft Books!

Getting excited about the autumn months ahead and all the crafting that I enjoy doing in the colder period. I have been needle felting for a while now, something I taught myself to do years ago and I always like looking through different craft books for ideas that can be converted into felt as I already am a felt artist and make my own handcrafted Roses for my own little flower shop where I make custom Roses for all occasions but my passion is the Funerary world and mainly for pets as they deserve a lovely arrangement of  Roses next to their ashes and photo. I take orders over Instagram, just DM me and I can customise the colour of your Roses etc. Soon to have little wooden Coffins to display the arrangements in so we are hard at work preparing for that, it's just the 2 of us, my talented husband making the Coffins and me making the Roses. Looking forward to sharing that soon!

Back to this lovely book and the cute little Spooky crochet characters you can make. I do plan to attempt some granny squares in the near future as it's hard to find black blankets and that granny bag I can't live without haha, black with a splash of colour is my fave, anyhow these little guys are so inspiring, hope it inspires you to make something this autumn/winter, I'm in the (southern hemisphere)

I should arrange a Granny Goth Club gathering LOL!!! Tea, sweets and crafts 🖤

Velvet Vampires!

I've been watching and talking about Dark Shadows for years and I'm talking about the original 1960s Gothic soap opera! I adore the Velvet Vampire type from the 60s and 70s, the hair the outfits are an absolute dream to me and recently I was very surprised to here that the whole collection is on Amazon Prime so I got the app, Prime Video and was quite excited even though I watch Dark Shadows on a regular basis and believe me there's a lot to get through but at least now others can watch it, people who have heard about it and haven't seen it yet, now you'll know what I'm talking about. I understand i'ts not for everyone but maybe the elder Vamps will enjoy it more ;)

Such an inspiring lady, check out some of these outfits/costumes, the ones from Dear World 1969 as Countess Aurelia, Blithe Spirit ~ Madame Arcati, Mrs. Lovett ~ Sweeny Todd and of course Great Aunt Adelaide Stitch ~ Nanny McPhee are all just to DIE for!

I also love her in Murder She Wrote and one of my favourite authors Agatha Christie's Miss Marple but I think I've posted enough ;)
