blog award

http://iamavampiree.blogspot.com has awarded me with an 'i think you are an awesome girl' award! :-)
you have to write 10 facts about yourself, and chose some other lady folk to bestow the award too:

blog

1. i eat an obscene amount of mint sauce/ vinegar/ olives/ capers and sun dried tomatoes! i have to add them separately to my meals if i'm cooking for other people as they'd all puke!
2. i am blatantly honest about pregnancy and giving birth.... i'm not a good person to talk to if your pregnant and scare easily!
3. my house is a complete junk shop.. and my desk where i make jewellery is just filled with random beads/ plastics/ glitters/ chains and random small objects like micro machines, googly eyes and miniature birds?
4. i love my kids so much and find it really hard to be away from them.. i would love to go to a festival but have not spent more than 1 night away from them since my eldest was born 8 years ago!
5. i am extremely into horror movies (well all movies really - but horrors are my favourite) i especially like spooky horror movies that involve scary long haired girls like a tale of two sisters, phone, the ring and basically the whole first half of martyrs.
6. i have 3 tattoos.. all on my back
7. i love bjork - her music and style are amazing.. i wish i could wear stage outfits like her just day to day but i think i'd be sectioned.
8. i'm obsessed with the circus.. my favourite depictions of the circus on tv are the series carnivale and the film mirror mask
9. i have a mannequin called bianca - the name was stolen from the film 'lars and the real girl'
10. i have severe double vision and always see 2 of everything.. but i've had it for my whole life so it's completely normal for me... ie i can still drive/ play sports etc and get no headaches from it... and no, before you ask, i don't see 4 when i'm drunk :-)

so i'd like to pass this on too:

DIY nude elastic cage skirt

it's not finished yet, gotta add some extra strips down it but its getting there.. Now would it be too much to wear the elastic skirt with the elastic harness i made the other day??

survey says: no

fab pics from the net i like today!

cage it

my love of cage/harness wear has not gone since buying my floral cage skirt of angie from Norwegian wood in october last year

http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5506356

and it seems like mainstream fashion has finally caught up with this wicked accessory as they are now available at topshop!!!


http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=19551&storeId=12556&productId=1324878&langId=-1&categoryId=&parent_category_rn=


although they don't come in whatever colour you want they are still definitely something i'd recommend you'd buy as they make any outfit just that little more interesting:


also i've always loved angie's harnesses but as they are mostly in black i've never thought i'd wear them as they aren't really girlie enough for my liking.. that is until i saw a recent one in nude:

i also loved the fact that it had more layers of elastic... i decided that as $400 is WAAAAAAAY out of my price range i'd make one myself out of some nude elastic, some bikini buckles and some beaded shoulders from another top i never wear.. and even though i'm a self confessed rubbish sewer and i didn't have enough to make it as long as Angie's i think it turned out ok:




i also have some thicker nude elastic so am making a nude elastic cage skirt - watch this space
