The above two pictures are about as goth as I go these days. Aside from an occasional red lip pencil, I don't really wear makeup. For a while I went for an uncanny/strange "natural" look by putting on eyeshadow and blush the natural color of my eye bags. Basically accentuating the parts of your face that makeup is supposed to hide. I'd do this look again. I was never one for "healthy" and "natural" makeup.
|Look how normal.|
As for hair, I'm basically wearing hair sticks, which I was getting into last year. In addition to the porcupine quills, I just bought this wood one.
|not this one, though I wanted to share it anyway because it's also cool|
What's in my piercings? These macrame weights (better picture of them at this post). Wear them with the 12g septum pincerI love wearing them with that bra top. I feel most on-point when I wear neotribal clothing, which I have like 2-3 outfits. It's an awesome look, but kind of hard to shop for without falling into a boho/hippy look, which I'm really not a fan of. (my most on-point neotribal look would be this one)
|Think I should post this on my MySpace? (excuse the editing)|
On my hands, I'm loving neon nail polish. And my mother gave me a bunch of her bone jewelry she no longer wears. Us two have the same tastes! Neon pink and bone are awesome together, I must say. I'll do a post on the new stuff, once I get the majority of it repaired.
|Also neon nail polish does this strange optical illusion where it makes your skin look super tan.|
So, right now, the dark fashion look isn't working for me personally, while I grow out my hair. And no telling me that my brown natural hair is "nice", lol. I heard it all from my mom, who has neon orange hair and wears neon pink lipstick. "You've got such beautiful hair" she says. Yeah, mom, it's the same boring shade as yours, which is why you color it every color under the sun!
Do I miss dark fashion? yeah. My relationship with my reflection in the mirror is unusual on a normal day, and these days I really have no clue who is staring back at me. It's disconcerting and a little sad, but, eh, once you've found yourself, you can't really lose yourself.
Those of you in normal-drag, how's it going? Anyone else going for a new look these days?
