Flea Market Clothing and Shoes

I haven't been shopping at the flea market much lately, but the last time I went there, I found lots of useful items! Often I feel things are overpriced or just not my style, but this time was different.

I got two skirts (similar in size an style, one black and one raspberry pink) for two euros a piece, light grey knit for two euros, a grey dress with black cutouts at the sides for 3 euros and the most wonderful pair of pink shoes for 3,60 euros.

The skirts are nice everyday skirts, as is the knit. The grey dress got to see action in the games gala I went to when the dress I ordered for it didn't arrive in time. The shoes were an impulse buy, they were just so pretty and pink! They are faux leather, with a faux patent toe. The heels had some scratches but I patched them up with matching nail polish (a tutorial coming on that!).

Pink! And Möttönen.
Möttönen the kitty quickly decided the pile of clothes was actually for her to sleep on. Who could say no to such a cute cat?

So here's a pile of pictures of Möttönen, she wanted to pose ;D

Möttönen then switched on to my other half's lap. He was taking pictures but Möttönen instantly knew petting her would be far more important.

Mör also got some attention!

Face and Feast

Face from the weekend! I wore light, neutral eyeshadow and a my-lips-but-better lipstick for an easy look. I still had the curls from going to the hairdressers, so I felt that light make-up complimented them well.

For some reason everyone had brought desserts for the dinner with parents, but that was surely a happy problem! My sister had made delicious carrot cake, mom had gotten a mango cheese cake and I made macarons, or macarenas as my mom called them ;D I actually bought the tops from Lidl and only made the filling, but I think that counts ;P

Shedding the Winter Coat

When you go swimming in natural waters for the first time in the year, we Finns say that you shed your winter coat. And that's just what I did last weekend at my family's summer cottage! My other half and I arrived with plans of just eating dinner with my parents, quickly bathe in the electric sauna, and head home afterwards. But since my uncle, aunt and their kids were at their cottage next to my parents', we went to say hi after eating and bathing. Turned out they had heated the wood fuelled sauna by the lake shore and invited us to join. I love the heat of the wood sauna, so I couldn't resist going to the sauna again when there was an opportunity. And since it's right next to the lake, I dove in for a few minutes despite the cold water.

It was an exceptionally sunny and warm day, and since my other half had gotten enough of saunas for one day, he snapped some pretty pictures! The lake is so shallow that I'm kneeling in the picture, boy were my knees cold afterwards ;D

Sun is setting on the lake.

Outfit of the Day

On Sunday I wore my brand new Lamby dress by Iron Fist. I ordered it for the game gala that was on Tuesday, but sadly it arrived on Wednesday. I wore a back-up dress I got from the flea market for 3 euros, it was a great find! Lamby needed some TLC when it arrived, it's mostly cotton and being smushed into a tiny bag had not gone well with the pleats. I ironed it to get them sorted, it made the whole dress look a lot better.

The print has black and white lambs with bows ans skulls on their heads. Some wear leather harnesses. It was still so light and pretty that it worked excellent for having a meal with my parents!

Dress - Iron Fist
Boots - Unif

I call this my "look at my nails" pose ;D

Bella Morte Outfit Pictures

I was in such a hurry organizing the club that I didn't remember to take a picture of my outfit. Luckily on of us organizers, Ari, is a talented photographer and documented the evening! Here's a few snaps of me.

Me playing some music! You can see the tattoo pretty well also, I'm excited to get it finished to properly show it off :)
I wore a Lip Service top (Which I've modified, it was apparently made for people with boobies the size of my head ;D The front was way too low for me, so I shortened the straps.) with a DeadlyGirlz corset on top. As the bottom half of outfit I have a glitter pvc-skirt by Lip Service (which I took in the very same day in a hurry and need to fix a bit more), plain dark tights and stiletto boots from the flea market.

I have to say I love that corset! It's the sturdiest one I've encountered and it has the curves in just the right places. It creates an amazing hourglass silhouette and is still quite comfy to wear. As an added bonus, it doesn't look too shabby even when laced very lightly, so if I grow tired of wearing it on a long night, I'll just loosen the laces a bit to make in more comfortable.

I'm eagerly awaiting for the postman to bring me a black and white version of the same corset! A fellow admin at the Finnish goth fleamarket on Facebook tipped me off that there was one on the Finnish equivalent of eBay. I read her message while updating a picture from the Game Awards gala and instantly logged in to to buy the corset, because it was just my size and the one I had been searching for for months. Thank you so much, Tiia, for remembering that I was looking for just that one corset!

My other half got his hair cut, he looks so smart! And I just love how he wears the raven skull I gave him!

Bella Morte at Doris Look

Yesterday's club Bella Morte was a success, thanks to all guests and especially everyone who worked to make it happen! I had a hectic day, but managed to take a few pics of my make-up. I wanted to do a look with glitter, since there's not many occasions when putting glitter on everything is appropriate, but a goth club is one of them ;D

For the lips I used Kooky matte lip lacquer by MUA and a pink long lasting lipstick by Manhattan. The outer edges are coloured with Kooky, a medium purple, and there's dab of pink in the middle to give the illusion of fuller lips. I put the gloss that is supposed to be used with the Manhattan product on top of both.

For my lids I took Catrina Cabaret by Fyrinnae (dark teal with a purple sheen, but the purple get lost on my skin) and put it on the outer half of lids and up to the crease and above. To give some more colour, I used Sugar Rush, a medium purple with a blue sheen by Femme Fatale in the inner corners. I lightly patted some Sugar Rush in the middle of the lid on top of Catrina Cabaret to get the blue shift to pick up light there. To top it off I put on Ardell false lashes with glitter on them and did a small wing to the corner of the eyes with black gel liner.

Just a super quick post! I got my hair done for club Bella Morte this evening, Elina of Scissor Sister made it absolute perfect.

This was the drawing I did to tell Elina what I wanted.

And here it is! My face is still bare, I'm doing my make-up soon.

My hair was dyed on Tuesday, so it's freshly turquoise. I brought some clip-in extensions in teal, purple and pink with me to add colour to the do. Elina washed my hair and curled it with a large curling iron for big curls. She then curled the extensions and pinned them in with my own hair to get the shape. I really love how the pink streaks work with the turquoise base, and the curls are just perfect! Now I'm off to do my face and try to get some clothes on before any guests for my other half's preparty arrive :)
