Vasaloppet and blueberry soup! Tradition.

Things Henrik found for me at a flea market. Books on striptease, erotica in film, and a 1947 Esquire.

Stuff for Etsy. The two originals on top are still available.

Finished my very short horror comic. Thinking about making it into a fanzine, but have to get it printed or wait until I can afford a new printer.

Favourite makeup combination at the moment. Electric blue eye pencil I’m pretty sure I’ve had since the actual 80s, and very bright red lipstick from Tarte.

What it looks like on my face.

Finally gave in and got myself a polaroid camera! I’ve wanted one since I was a kid.

Went to see Cleopatra at the cinema and couldn’t resist theming my makeup and outfit a bit. You can’t really see the makeup well in the photos though.

I found this wool top for super cheap at a flea market and it fits like a glove. I love it so much.

[Image]

Picking out clothes for another night at the cinema. Rocky Horror!

[Image]

I went as a bit of a Columbia/Transylvanian mix. Sadly no one else had dressed up and no one sang along or anything. Still amazing to get to see it on the big screen.

[Image]

I think this jacket is from the 19th century, in that case my very oldest piece of clothing.

[Image]
[Image]

I got into my pyjamas when I got back home, and realized they’re quite Rocky Horror as well.

The finished Fields of Stone.

Just an outfit I love.

Painted myself a shirt.

I love soft stretchy black dresses. I have about 4 similar ones that are my standard at home clothes.

I’m doing some sewing for Naomi Nowak’s clothing line Raintower this week. The overlock machine is surprisingly fun! I’ve never used one before.
