new home and old home

hello loves! 
i've been so, so conspicuously absent lately and i just wanted to let you guys know about a new project i've started. it's not so much about fashion blogging (i'll still come here for outfit posts, when i post them) and much more about crafting and DIY projects that i undertake and teach myself. 

you can find it here:

hope to see you there!

you are bewitched

so i recently got an iphone and with it instagram--here are some of the pictures i've taken! i'd love to follow you guys, if you have instagram let me know your username in the comments and i'll follow you.
i've been pretty busy lately, i'm starting my last (hopefully, if i don't fuck anything up) year of college and i've been making more things. i'm trying to revitalize my etsy once again but there don't really seem to be enough hours in the day. 
i hope you guys are doing well! every so often i get the urge to make a reappearance here. i'd love to blog as regularly as i used to but i just don't seem to have the time!

today was a good day

so i was in pennsylvania for the past few weeks and it seems like every time i'm there there's some weird drama with friends or whatever that i get stuck in the middle of, which sucks. so that happened. but then i came home.
and my friend who was babysitting my fish had cleaned my apartment (she is amazing). 
and i got a card from ally which made me incredibly happy, because she, too, is amazing.
and i posted a picture of my new tattoo on tumblr:
it's the seven sigils of the endless from neil gaiman's sandman comic books, which were the first comic books i read at the ripe old age of 12 and they sent me headlong into a lifetime of nerdery.
and neil gaiman liked the post

i know this is pretty minor for probably all of you but i'm SO INCREDIBLY EXCITED. i saw the notification and burst into tears. i know he runs his own blog which means he saw it and appreciated it and i'm so incredibly happy. 

and i love the tattoo, it's my favourite (right now, but of course i got it yesterday, so that could change but i'm not sure it's going to). it was designed by a really good friend and the work is amazing (some parts in the picture look a bit lumpy, but it's still swollen and healing, so that will get better). 

and... yeah. today was a good day.

you'll minimize some stranger's sadness with a piece of wood and plastic--holy fuck, it's so fantastic!

 i got this amazing betsey johnson dress at beacon's closet (the girl there said that someone who used to work for betsey comes in all the time to donate clothes, so they often have a good stock). it fits like a glove and reminds me of a cross between a ballerina dress and a costume from deadwood.
 it's really short though! i know i have some tall girls following me who know the pains of a perfect dress that shows just a little too much leg. and normally, in my book, there's really no such thing as too much leg, but i'm in danger of flashing my butt in this thing if the wind picks up even a little!
of course, i got it anyway. guess i'll just wear it with tights ;)

don't break my heart, and i won't break your heart shaped glasses

 i took a break from making stencil stuff for other people to make myself a shirt. i just... really like bats

i have to go to the salvation army to pick up some more stencil design shirts, but i'm hopefully going to be able to start putting them up for sale on etsy or something soon. they're really fun to make and it's a good way to let off some steam from finals (which aren't over for another week... ugh).

friendly faces everywhere, humble folks without temptation

 if you know me, you know i love south park. i'll argue south park is better than any animated show (besides maybe venture bros) until i'm blue in the face. 

so i decided to make this shirt decoration thing (i call him boob stan). stan is one of my favourite characters (i also like kyle, we have more in common because he's jewish) and i was inspired by this amazing shirt that paloma faith wore on never mind the buzzcocks:
...which i've been coveting since i saw the episode, so i decided to make my own version. he's not as cross eyed as he looks! he's just a little folded over.
i'm not entirely sold on how well it turned out, and i think next time i'd sew his face on a little bit higher to get the "sleeve" effect like on paloma's blouse. i couldn't do that to this one, though, because the straps are so thin--and it's no biggie, really, since it's only a 99 cent salvation army tank top+some scrap fabric. i might try to repeat this project now that i know a bit more what i want to be doing. 
anyway this is what i'm doing because my iron has broken in the middle of making a big batch of stencil shirts, which fucking sucks, so instead of working on my finals (which would, of course, be a more productive use of my time) this is what i've been doing instead.

wouldn't you like to see something strange?

 so i got these ridiculous cat ear sunglasses (and i'm wearing them with my best valley girl face)
 and i made this pair with amazing tiny tiny bat and jack o lantern and moon vintage rhinestones that are just so cute i can't even stand it
are you guys doing anything to customize your summer necessities?
