Yes, indeed, May 22nd…World Goth Day! ❤ May you shine in your blackness!
Who needs V Day when you can have Halloween. . .!?
Lime Crime is known for their offbeat shades, and daring finishes…so really Halloween isn’t a stretch. Like, at all.
But I love that they make a point of the 31st all the same, and they they go “LE” (limited edition) in honor. “Bloodmoon”? I do! (Incidentally, I never – ever – wear lipstick. But…I bought it, because… #vamp #bloodmoon #batwings. ❤ )
It’s kind of hard to resist – the perfect blackened red, don’t you agree? Wicked is also spectacular, but I find it more a challenge to find the right dark blood red… Of course then I see Red Velvet and want that too… ❤
It’s perfect for leaving love notes, so I have an excuse to splurge. 😉 (Or at least that’s what my not-so-inner-also-outer Vamp says.)
If you are feeling angelic, you could always go “Moonstone” – fair to say they have all manner of “bold” covered…and in that shade, you wouldn’t be run of the mill “divine!”
I’ve said it time and time again… I may not be as “outwardly” so as back in my college youth…but…my “gothieness” is still more than evident!
I’m a Vamp at heart, a lover, and a fighter for what I care most about. I never fit in, never really wanted to…and am relatively certain I never will. I don’t care much for molds, though neither is it in utter defiance of authority, nor in effort to gain attention by breaking the rules. It just IS.
I just AM.
This particular image, of course, was one I ever and always adored – the Vamp aesthetic was the very one to which I aspired all my years. Yes, the ghostly pallor, Night-hued locks, ruby lips (not to mention the second-skin black apparel – my daily uniform!)
While I am scarcely so stand-out, leaning to the sporty side of things these days, it is simply the look which resonates most deeply with me. ❤ It was that way when I was a little girl, and has not wavered an ounce.
I will always appreciate and recognize beauty in other forms, but at my core, I am Vamp 1,000%. Forgive me…or do not...but I shall make no effort to alter my heart in pursuit of some other aesthetic as, in my own mind, our propensities are the spice of Life!
Proof is in the pudding…
