Shoodboard + OOTD

I recently made a “shoodboard” that I like to dress based upon these days. A shoodboard is a shrine and a mood board all mixed into one! It’s pretty much a shrine that’s not dedicated to anything, but rather a collection of items that form a sort of vibe. Then, sort of like a mood board, I dress to fit the shoodboard’s vibe. But it’s not really actual fabrics and stuff, you get me? Kinda?

Anyway, here’s my currently witchy shoodboard:

And these are some witchy-voodoo-crosses-black-candles books/movies- HP, Emily the Strange, and Rocky Horror. It’s held up by my little friend, who you may remember from this video.

Rudyard Kipling, the Cranberries, a candle, and some rainbow stickers that glitter.

This magazine cover totally works somehow, even though it’s not really voodoo-esque or anything. It’s just dark and eerie.

Homemade voodoo doll.

Beautiful genuine plastic jewels and a piece of Cady’s homecoming queen crown sit above the Ouija Board. Also there is a bell.

Fairy lights that are always there but look especially nice today.

Here is one outfit partially based on this shoodboard… For some reason my hair and face look really weird and rectangular.

You’ll probably see similar ones coming soon!

Lipstick!

Welcome to my family of lipstick, Lime Crime!

It’s a gorgeous lavender color. Here’s what it looks like on me:

I love it with my hair! I highly reccomend this to everyone. It’s kind of expensive, but it’s really opaque and good quality, and the tube is just too cute!

I also got black lipstick from Manic Panic (in Raven). My parents let me order it, pay for it, and everything, but then they tell me I can’t wear it. I’m really upset because I absolutely adore it and I think black lipstick is gorgeous, and this one especially was really nice. It’s flattering and it makes me feel pretty. Their reasoning was that it looks “skanky”, people will think I’m depressed, and it won’t come across the way I want it to. People won’t look at it from a fashion perspective. And that it will “attract the wrong kind of people”. I guess they mean well, but when they care more about how other people see me than I do, I think it’s a problem. People will judge you no matter what you do, so you might as well do what makes you happy, right?

I can’t find a good picture of just the black right now, but I think you know what black lipstick looks like.

This is what the black looks like with the purple over it. (Sloppily applied.)
