WGT 2015 Part 1

I'm in Leipzig again! Due to the train strike, my other half and I had more time to spend in Berlin than we had anticipated, so we decided to go on a WW2 bunker tour by the Berliner Unterwelten. I've been to the tour years ago, but it was great also this time!

In Leipzig I only did a little shopping before dinner and going to bed, but today the festival starts, yay!

Ready to head out at Leipzig!

I like the U-Bahns, they are so easy to use and the stations are beautiful. This one is
from the U8 platform at Alexanderplatz.

The local DM store at Leipzig is prepared for goth visitors!

I did some shopping. A few goodies from DM and Douglas, and a book from the Berliner Unterwelten shop.

Finnish Alternative Models Model of the Month

A huge thanks to everyone who took the time to vote for me in the Finnish Alternative Models page's Model of the Month -contest! Can you believe it, I won! I'm now the Model of the Month for May, which means my picture is the profile picture of the page and my blog page will get shared more often.

This is the picture that I participated with. It's taken by Kari Vuorio early 2013 at his studio.

Demon Hunting

Just a quick update! I did a few photoshoots yesterday with the Demon Hunter costume, here's a finished picture for you :)

Face of the Day

A very simple office look! I brought a pile of lipsticks from New York, so I'm having a neutral-eyes-and-bold-lips phase. The lippie is Wet n Wild Fergie lipstick in Ferguson Crest Cabernet, along with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics' Black Dahlia liner. I've recently taken to doing my brows with pink, I think it works better than the black I have worn on them for a while.

What do you think?

Ropecon Outfits

Here's pictures from my extended Helsinki and Espoo trip! Last week I travelled to Helsinki on Monday evening, gave a presentation at the Games First event on Tuesday, went out for dinner with friends on Wednesday, had sushi lunch and went to Kiasma art museum with my brother on Thursday, then checked out the Steam Helsinki bar with the rest of the Ropecon entourage on Thursday evening.

From Friday to Sunday I enjoyed Ropecon, the largest non-commercial roleplaying event in Europe! I've been going to Ropecon for something like fifteen years and it's always lovely. This year was the first time I participated in the costume competition because I had my Demon Hunter armour with me. I also did a few photoshoots in the armour, it's super tiring because it's so heavy to wear, but the results looked gorgeous!

So today I was a good girl and back at the office with work as usual. On Thursday my other half and I are leaving for Leipzig, so no rest for the wicked! And tomorrow I have another photoshoot with the Demon Hunter costume, it will sure feel lovely to wear the huge pauldron when the bruises it left on Saturday are still sore. But what wouldn't I do for some awesome pictures! ;D

Going to Steam Helsinki

Preparing for Ropecon Friday at the hotel.

Friday's Victorian outfit with steam punk-y sunglasses.

I love how well the top made by Tiina of Rogue fits the skirt!

Look at my muscles ;P

Demon Hunter on Saturday.

On Sunday I spent my day in just jeans and a t-shirt for comfort! I always love the variety of stuff to do at Ropecon, this year I learned about the history of piracy, of how Atlas games publishes games, saw a Game of Thrones burlesque performance and listened to a geek choir sing songs from Skyrim, Doctor Who and the Moomins! Nest year Ropecon will be held at Messukeskus, so it's bye bye to Espoo and Dipoli, looking forward to seeing what wonderful things they have there!

Victorian Gothic and Steam!

Since I'm in Helsinki to attend Ropecon during the weekend, my friends and I went to check out the new steampunk bar, Steam Helsinki. It was so dark inside that I didn't get good pictures, but here's a snap of my outfit! I wore the Fan+Friend victorian skirt and a top that was custom made for me by Rogue. The top is made to fit over a corset, so finally I have a top that sits right and does not need adjusting! I really love the skirt, I think I have to get a similar one in a different colour, because while black is beautiful, it does not photograph well. And the skirt doesn't really have to match the rest of my wardrobe, as it needs a special top any way.

They had delicious gin and tonic at Steam Helsinki, I'm definitely going to visit the place again and take a decent camera with me so I can show you the bar shaped like a zeppelin!

Black Metal Dahlia Lip Tar by OCC

Lip Tars by obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics are liquid lipsticks packed in squeeze tubes. This one is called Black Metal Dahlia, the metallic version of Black Dahlia, and it's absolutely gorgeous! I'm wearing the lipstick with the Black Dahlia lip liner. Black Metal Dahlia is just what the name promises: a dark red, like the regular Black Dahlia, but with a metallic sheen. This shade is a real eye catcher, bright and shiny! :)
