Summer=Change

Ok, here is the lowdown, I want to dye my hair and make some changes to my life/look this summer. For about a month now I have been loving this black nail polish I got, so that is going to stick around for a while :) but I am going to dye my hair (parts) a different color (I have no idea if I have told you this) Ok so I was inspired by EA in the beginning when I first wanted to dye my hair. Who isn't inspired by her? oh yah all the haters.....anyway since she has died the crap out of her hair and is now blond, red is out of the picture. My second option is blue, like a BRIGHT blue, just highlights. But today as I was listening to The Legacy by the Black Veil Brides (:D) it kinda clicked. "Hey let's just dye my whole head black and call it good! plus I don't have to bleach it!" So right now I am EXTREMELY undecided. 



In looking at young involved in the occult, do you see any particular type of dress? I have personally observed people wearing black finger nails, having their hair painted black, wearing uh, black T-shirts, sometimes they will tattoo themselves"

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having an AMAZING V Day. For me it was. Today at school we all got to wear our pj's, watch movies, play games (and wii) and eat tons of CANDY! But I think the best surprise of the day, since I don't have a Valentine, was coming home to a milk chocolate cake with a heart of top my mom made for me.

Black Veil Brides

My new obsession at the moment is BVB. Ok, so BVB is a gothic/emo Punk Rock band based out of Hollywood, California. They have been active since 2006 and the most recent members are:
  • Andy Sixx (Biersack)-lead vocals
    Jake Pitts- lead guitar
    Ashley Purdy- bass, backing vocals
    Jinxx (Jeremy Ferguson)- rhythm guitar
    Christian "Coma" Mora- drums

The way that the name "Black Veil Brides" is explained in Andy's own words here:


The origin of the name comes from my childhood fascination with Roman Catholicism and the dark imagery that it evokes (i.e. sacred heart, stigmata, etc.) The term black veil bride comes from the church. When a Nun has her coronation, she is marrying God and they literally have a ceremony in which she wears a black veil because she is giving up the cardinal pleasures of life. I thought this worked well for a heavy band as the strong dichotomy between a bunch of guys dressed in all black and general lack of “holy-ness” claiming such a strong image seemed to be evocative and sexy to me. Also, I liked the positive and negative it came with, the Hollywood-ized version of life it seems to have. The movies or TV seem to deem a wedding as the happiest moment in an adult life and the usual image for that is a beautiful young woman in a wedding dress and wedding veil. Inversely the lowest point in a human life would be a funeral which is classically depicted by an older, perhaps beat down, woman in a black veil… a strong woman despite her plight. These type of names are classic in rock and roll, such as Guns and Roses, which is both positive and negative. I thought it suited us well.

End of the day...


So since I came home early today from school with a stomach ache, I was bored for a span of about 10 minuets thinking about what I wanted to blog about today. So I picked up a bottle of CQ nail polish number 151- Mystical. It went on from there painting my nails the gorgeous shade of purple. I never paint my nails as a rule but who knows? this might become a regular thing, posting about my nails. Im joking. You readers out there would get bored. Anyway for a touch of fun I added Claire's glitter.

Ulorin Vex: In The Flesh



Ok so on my internet surfing adventure today I wanted to draw something, but I didn't know what. Then it hit me. Ulorin Vex. Vex is a orange haired previous Bloody Crumpet, artist and model for latex and nude photography (i know what you are thinking) but she is really pretty and I'm torn between 3 photos to draw. So as I am making up my decision here are the ones that I am planning to draw. If you want to learn more about Miss Vex go to her website: Ulorin Vex
