I haven't done my nails in a long time, but it's been a weekend full of cleaning and I needed a break, so I stamped out a design. Almost all the designs you've seen on this blog are handpainted, but these are stamped from stamping plates.

The outfit for this photoshoot was an exact recreation of an outfit I wore a few days before and didn't get a chance to take pictures of, so I brought it to this shoot. These two photos are by Mike Zapata.
Oh, hey, so I don't actually read comic books and I'm afraid these were the photographer's, and only for the photo, but I do read quite a lot of webcomics! See, they're cheaper is the thing. :\
In case you were wondering, or you were looking for something else to read in your spare time, here are my favorites:
In more ways than one.
I dyed my hair for my Halloween costume, which you'll see soon enough and which made it's debut yesterday after 2 YEARS under the presserfoot! Anyway, so my hair is kind of fire-in-a-dye-bottle, and then if I decide that I don't like my part-shaved eyebrow, I can say I lost the bits of it in a fire or a chemical explosion or a Bic razor fight.
For now, though, at least, I do like it. So, there.
I was just kind of thinking about it yesterday I guess, and then today I was talking to my roommate like, "yeah, that'd be crazy if I did that lol" and then I was in the bathroom with a razor, so... welcome to my life. It's name is "Spontaneity." Or "Bad Decisions." I don't know. I do actually kind of like it, so maybe not bad decisions. <3

It's the same as having wings.
I'm too embarrassed to admit how many times I tried to get this shot before I actually got it.
I love these shoes. I got them at the Out of the Closet by Pasadena City College in LA.
I thought it would be sexy to take a picture with the minivan. Girls and cars are hot.
This one is just so you can see the plaid-printed satin up close.

Sorry, we're on an Alice binge. I'm getting it out of my system.
This is the fourth and final set from the Alice shoot I did with Liam of Blackrose Photography a couple months back that I never showed you. You've seen Alice, the Hatter, and the Queen, but now you get to see the White Rabbit.
I promise, my next blog post will be the last Alice-related one in a while. It's just going to be a couple photos I took of a friend Saturday morning with some mushrooms. I couldn't help myself.
Anyhow, I'm late for a very important date, so I'ma begone.

I said I'd do a compilation post of outfits I have pictures of that were clearly in some way inspired by Alice in Wonderland. Without further ado, here it is.
This one is the most recent. It's from my last post, from August 29th, 2012.
These two are from the summer of 2009. Alice was a conscious goal here. I wish the photos were better, but they're not. They were taken at Broughton Castle in England, on a field trip from my time studying at Oxford. I still own and wear the light pink satin bow headband and the corduroy miniskirt. The coat was my favorite, but has now faded beyond recognition, and I have no idea what happened to the shirt. That's STILL my favorite purse, although it's almost dead now. I wore enamel clock earrings and blue and gold eyeshadow with my white tights and mary-janes, because I wanted to get as close to Alice as I could without wearing a costume.
Man, I even still had braces. This photo was also pre-jaw surgery, in case you're wondering what looks so different. The jaw surgery actually took place about a month after this photo was taken.
Here comes the blue again! I was mostly just feeling very little girlish, but I think the Aliceness is evident here.
This is Alice all the way for me. Taken my senior year of high school (I'd guess about February of 2010?), and I was wearing a Victorianesque corset underneath to help me feel in character. You can probably tell. The dress and bolero are vintage, and belong to my mother. Love my off-white tights and Victorianesque boots.
It's mostly the line here that is Alice, but again the blue and the headband seem relevant. You can't see here, but I was also wearing blue tights as well as mary-janes.
Mushroom nails! Need I say more? This is one of the first nail art designs I ever did, certainly in the first five sets.
The next four photos are from a photoshoot I did with Liam Roisendubh of Blackrose Photography: Alice, the Hatter, the Queen, and the Rabbit.
These two are from senior year of high school.
Look, I'm even falling down the rabbit hole! That was the idea, anyway.
Also senior year of high school:
This is what I wore to the midnight showing of Tim Burton's Alice, and I believe I also wore most of this ensemble to an Alice-themed Rocky Horror. My mother made this for her sister for a set of Alice Halloween costumes.
This was taken at my 16th birthday party, all Alice-themed.
AND That's all she wrote.
