And yet, the soonest chances to do this? Some of the most Goth-Free places.
The first is a beach party. With my family. Yes, this includes my 80 year old grandmother who thinks I need fangs for "Confidence" because I'm insecure and fangs will somehow help that. Sigh... She means well. Sure, I'm not going to go wearing a super-fancy black lace dress and boots, but I still want to look
Sure, my swimsuit isn't too terrible- Black with white floral pattern. But I don't think an eyeliner spiderweb would like swimming... On like a like totally unrelated subject- Does anyone know a good water-proof eyeliner I can find at a drugstore or walmart and won't cost a fortune? Oh well. Hey, maybe I can finally convince my mom to let me take my parasol out in public! (Without her disowning me!) And I might have a sunblock review after this (I just got Neutorgena UltraSheer Dry-Touch Sunblock, because, come on, who likes wearing sticky sunblock? So far, its pretty nice. Not shiny at all. Not sure how it holds up in the sun for a long time, though.)
Does anyone having tips for keeping my ever-so-dreary look in possibly one of the worst places to be a goth? (seriously, sun, sand and screaming like a girl when/if fish get close to me? So goth, I know.)
It occured to me I'm over using the word "Goth". Oh my goth, I should probably stop that.
Then I have a "Vacation". Why the quotation marks? Because its just my mom going to see all her friends that live across the country. Sure, there are going to be a couple girls my age, but... Well, I don't know them well and haven't seen them in over two years.
Why am I going? you ask. Because its either Get Out Of The House For A Change, or staying home alone for four days, or staying with my older brother (and... Yeah, rather not. He hasn't really known (or cared about) me since I was little Reesa), or staying with my friend (I don't like staying at another person's house for days. I really hate not knowing where anything goes or how anything works (Seriously, her kitchen sink confuses me.))
And why should I care about how I look? Please see here:
But... I'm sure my spiderweb eyeliner (Yes, still talking about that) would wear off after ten hours in a car.
Complaint time: TEN FREAKING HOURS! At least its my mom's friend's van, not our itty bitty car. But tennnnnnnn hoursssssss. I'm going to be so bored! And its going to
But, yes, I still want to look like an undead fairy pirate. And I have a terrible time packing what I'll actually need, and nothing more. (Last vacation (May) was to a waterpark for 2 nights. Enough clothes to last a week, 4 swimsuits, was it four or five pairs of shoes? And all the makeup I owned... And 4 stuffed animals... And some other stuff.) But, um, I like totally need my parasol. (Speaking of that, I want to decorate it soon. Ideas?) And my corset. And my long velvet skirt. And of COURSE I need my Mad Hatter tee, and I bet some fishnets could be used, and I can't forget my black skirt with crooked silver pinstripes, and there's my crochet short-sleeved cardigan, and some scarves for my hair, and I'll need a few pairs of shoes...
Speaking of shoes: LACE CONVERSE (knock-offs.). At Walmart. Normally, I hate sneakers of all kinds- Or pretty much 90% of shoes that aren't sandals.
Anyway, its going to be hard to decide if I will actually be able to wear those clothes. Is velvet suitable fabric for summer?
And then there is trying to look nice after a ten hour car ride. And more importantly- NOT BEING BORED OUT OF MY MIND! My laptop will die after like 2 hours, I can't read in a car without feeling sick, I don't have a portable DVD player (or a Doctor Who DVD... But maybe... If I can find a good price...) and listening to an MP3 player while staring out the window? Gets old after a while. And sadly, I can never sleep in a car. So, to keep to the theme of the blog- Does anyone know any gothy crafts I can do in a car? I was thinking making stuffed bats out of felt. (Very simple bats, mind you.) And I have been wanting to stitch a heart on a shirt (like Emilie Autumn) and maybe taking it further, by drenching the front of it with red fabric paint (too look like my heart was ripped out). Aren't I just so innocent and cute? But that couldn't be done in a car. I have been wanting to make a hat. Maybe I'll do that. (Or at least add a black lace veil to an existing hat. Because I want to.)
Speaking of black lace veils, and I mentioned Doctor Who a little while ago...
In one episode (the first one with River, second part) there is that woman. Why is she dressed in victorian mourning clothes? No clue. There is a reason for the veil- But the skirt? But since she is extremely smart at that point, I decide to take it as a compliment, saying smart people are goths.
Well its really late and I'm getting even more scatterbrained... So... Bye.
