What I Wore
I wore this to DragonCon in Atlanta a few months back. Though I’ve since left the pigtails and overdone relics of cybergoth to the other side of 25, I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of going over-the-top with my outfits. Inspired by burlesque, the Victorian era, and my own dark sensibilities, I designed this outfit and had the entire ensemble made in faux leather by Starkers Corsetry. To finish the look, I added a hat I made and some buttoned spat boots by Go Max.

Corset – traded my 14 eye Doc Martens for this corset

“I was also wearing Muro boots but you can’t see them - I was just wearing this to school because it was chilly.”
Eyelashes from Beauty Case.
lace head band, red jacket and black corset from Myer.
Skirt from Sex Kitten Australia
Socks from a random $2 shop

I made the hat myself.
I sometimes attend fetish parties, and this is from the masquerade party in January 2009. Only the collar and the armpieces are homemade, the rest is just thrown together from what I had.
