A Rockabilly/Goth/Pinup Fusion Look Featuring Spellbound By Jynx Cosmetics

Holy crap, I am so behind on blogging lately! I'm not just late to the party, I've pretty much MISSED the party. I'm hoping to catch up soon as I may be having some job changes coming up that will work out a lot better for my lifestyle!

Anyway, a couple of months ago (I said I was behind) I put together a little bit of a goth/pinup fusion type of look for going out to the new wave club. That is one of the things I love about goth fashion; you can combine goth style elements with other kinds of looks and pretty much do whatever the f**k you want! I found a pinup-ish dress with a touch of goth to it and paired it with some pvc heels, a pvc waist belt, my ribcage necklace, and a hair flower for a pinup touch. I think I was a little too toned down with this look; next time I crack this look out I'm going to wear some dreads and fishnets and boots or something. The goth to pinup ratio is a bit off here and I often don't wear my natural hair when going out. Also, this look could really have used some falsies. If I remember correctly, I got home late after a long commute from the middle of nowhere and didn't have quite enough time to do what I wanted with my appearance.

My makeup was inspired by my dress which has little pink cherries and black and white polka dots all over it. I tried to do something that combined all of these colours in a way that wasn't totally IN YOUR FACE.
