Gothic Circus & Me(n)tal Acrobatics
My life is currently a circus of horror, where I am the clown, trapezist and ringmaster, so what more appropriate than a circus-themed photoshoot ?!
I won’t bog this post down with details of my mental acrobatics (later post) so here’s the fashion rundown 🙂
I have always been obsessed with big dramatic skirts, so I am finding myself using this petticoat for so many pictures. I have a short one and a longer one – both are technically supposed to be worn under another skirt/dress, but the amazon ones are really good can be worn on their own.
I love feathers and skulls – anything which adds drama is my my thing … but only accessories wise, as I really cannot stand life drama !
The shoes are from Demonia, I have to admit I haven’t been out with them yet, am kinda scared of falling over disgracefully … Eeek. Maybe this weekend? At least I will be able to blame the fall on booze 😀
I am possibly attending the Gothic Circus in the Isle of Wight in a couple of weeks so that is how I came about this outfit. I was trying to figure out what I could wear, and I think this could work, no? 🙂
