i’ve been watching the second season of the l word again. i love it so. some of my very favourite things of that season are jenny’s grotesque, surrealistic carnival scenes.
i’ve also been reading rick moody’s demonology & am going to a burlesque circus show tonight.

so of course i HAD to do something with all that twisted carnival-esque inspiration.

enjoy!

extended version in a treasury on etsy.

let me just start by saying that gibbous is my favourite shop ever. it has such a world of its own, which is reflected in the website layout, pictures, descriptions, packaging, even communication with the owner.
& with my renewed interest in recycled/patchworky/’shabby chic’ clothes (& money, yay!), i decided that It Was Time for another gibbous purchase. i obsessively checked their site day after day until they uploaded that product i could not resist. it became this amazing little witchy cape.

as soon as i bought it, the lovely selene gibbous e-mailed me to confirm my purchase & let me know how soon it could be shipped. when it was shipped, she e-mailed me again to let me know when i could expect it. what service!

all in all i received it in a timely fashion. unfortunately i wasn’t home when it arrived & somehow my little brother confused it for something he ordered (he probably wasn’t wearing his glasses) & denied me the pleasure of opening it myself. anyway.
as usual, it looks so much better than in the pictures. it was very well-represented on their website though. & is so soft! & textured! & black! i love it!

it came wrapped in this cute vintage pattern instruction.

such a little work of art, so well constructed. & fits me perfectly. or as perfectly as a cape can fit. i can’t wait to wear this everywhere! what i love the very most about this is how versatile it is.

i know many of you are probably put off by their prices, but trust me, they’re worth it. good service too. both times i’ve bought from gibbous i had a very pleasant overall shopping experience. the only squabble i have is that, if you’re from outside the u.s., you can’t directly buy, but have to e-mail for a shipping quote first. then again, it’s understandable if you don’t have a lot of international customers.

here’s the link to their shop again. go buy things! you’ll love them, i promise.
i’ll probably be heading back there myself entirely too soon. lately they also do clothing make-overs! sounds amazing to me.

been a while since i did this!

this weeks theme is ice cream, with all kinds of things relating to ice cream & in ice creamy colours.
enjoy (:

sea/mermaid themed.

i’ve always loved mermaids & been fascinated by sea life.
when i was a mini mara i wanted nothing more than to be a mermaid. once, i let a friend of mine convince me that mermaids existed. she said that they lived in the shells on the shore at her beach house. she said it was very unlikely that we would see them, since they died very easily if they came out of those shells. but they were there.
i filled my pockets with those shells. i would stare at them until my vision blurred, hoping i would catch a glimpse. i never did, of course. eventually i realized that it was just a fantastical lie. yet, all these years later, i’m still looking.

enjoy!

also in a treasury on etsy, with more items. feel free to check that out, click on the items & maybe even comment on there so more people will see this talented bunch.

enjoy!
