Vacation

Finally it started my three-week long vacation and I have a bunch of plans which I try to bring about as much as I can. Last summer vacation failed completely so now I try to take it back. So far it's been quite erratic weather which is a bit shawl because I would enjoy to spend time on the beach.

For the first I considered to travel overseas, but I didn't book the journey in time and now the prices have increased so much that I don't have a heart to book anymore. Perhaps I try to do a trip later and take a longer weekend off. Now I have a plan to travel in Finland and visit Eastern Finland and perhaps Tallinn. 
 An outfit from Saturday. This mini dress, which is cute, is a finding from H&M. I bought it last year and I do like it in all its simplicity.
 Daisies are wonderful flowers. Every year I like to admire them through a lens. 
I came to visit the folks after a long time and I've spent a lot of time with the camera. And of course cats are also entertained me. 
Dress: H&M, Necklace: from WGT
A short post, but I wanted to come to say hi and that I'm still alive!

Midsummer

Midsummer came and vanished and as usual I didn't have any particular plans for it. I just wanted to relax with some tasteful wine without a tight schedule. Of course the rainy weather limited the plans as well. There was arranged Tampere Underground, but  the windy and wet weather kept us indoors. A year ago we visited there and it was the nice event, but perhaps not so pleasant in the rain. 

I poured wine down and we watched Searching for Sugar Man on Friday evening while listening  the rain by the other ear. I haven't watched that documentary before, but I knew that crazy and unbelievable story. 

Yesterday when the city was dead silence I practiced driving a car. Yes. Once again. My skills are so rusty when I drive too seldom these days. We actually made a trip which was quite long around the lake. We drove to eat burgers to the summer restaurant which is located in Ruovesi and  we paid a visit to a summer cottage of  a friend of my beloved's. It was fun to drive after a long time and from now on I try to drive more regular. 

Outfit of a day. I made a hairdo and added flowers which are withering too soon. Now when my real hair is getting longer and I don't use extensions so often anymore it's easier to do different combings and I start liking it! I'm really bad at putting my hair and usually I don't have the patience to do hair art more than that, but today I had time to play with a curler and pins. And speaking of the hair I'm fighting with a thought should I cut a bang back or not.. :')  I love the fringe, but kind of it is nice to be without it as well and now I've managed to grow it pretty well. 
A lace dress is self made. I made it before WGT, but never worn it there.

The last day

This will be the last post of Wave Gotik Treffen and nearly a month has gone since the whole event. I've been slow like a snail, but sometimes duties win and during this week I've been quite exhausted after the work so blogging has not been the priority one. (I have spent my spare time mostly by watching cat videos and now I have a huge wish to have Ragdoll. I realized how lovely they can be by a nature. Their look is not perfectly to my taste, but their nature surely is. Black Ragdoll would be awesome..  Dreaming is good, it keeps me alive.)

Fourth day began in a legendary way. We headed to the park  to meet other Finns. This year there was a lot of people in Finnish meet-up and it was nice to change thoughts and hear what people have done this year. We spent there for a couple of hours until it was time to leave to the hotel and prepare for the evening. (We went to see God Module and Faderhead) 
I was dressed in self made lace dress and some accessories. I like that dress a lot. Lace is heavy and a shape of dress fits me well. 
This year I bought nothing except these two purses. Neither I did a year ago. Of course there would be everything to buy, but it requires money and I want to save my coins to other stuff. And one main reason is also that it feels stupid to buy clothes when I can sew them myself. Mostly I was looking for jewelries, but everything was over expensive so I didn't bother to do any trade. The first year was the year when I shopped more, after that shopping has felt not that important. 
And one outfit and I stop writing about WGT. This long PVC attire I wore during the third night. This is one of my favorite combination and I've worn it many times while visiting festivals.

Old St. Peter's Church

Day three which was Sunday we got an idea to visit a church which was situated quite close to our hotel and seemed goth enough to our taste. There was a bit similar sculptures on the roof which you can see also in Notre Dame cathedral and there was quite atypical paintings indoors which you  don't usually see inside the churches. The church was built in the  late 1800's, but it got damage during the world war II and was fixed later. There was arranged  "gothic christ"during WGT, but we wanted to visit there just taking pictures at leisure without any distractions. 
It felt slightly hilarious to step inside the holy building in fully goth look. Usually people get a lot of angry glances while going inside the church in goth look, but at this time no one really cared.
After Sunday church it was a good time to pay a visit to Sixtina which is a nice absinthe bar with some cool decor. I was dressed in the black dress, self made collar and pvc-boots. The weather was warm and nice so we decided to have drinks at the terrace. Some absinthe after the church, sounds good!
In the night we headed to Felsen Keller and after that to Agra to see Jesus and Mary Chain which was better than I assumed. It really filled my expectations and was worth seeing.

WGT outfit: day II

It really seems that I have lost my track of time, but here comes the next Wave Gotik Treffen post which at this time is short. 

Like I already mentioned I didn't think of my outfits much in advance and this next outfit was created quickly in the morning when I explored the contents of suitcase and I had a feeling that  I want to wear something comfy. A stretch dress and self made lace collar pleased my eyes and in addition I added a self made hair band, fluffy bag (which I found in the flea market and I fell in love with it during the journey) and Pennangalan boots. All in all quite simple, but enough splashy to my taste and I prospered in this look really well. If I think this look this is something that I wore already fifteen years ago. I had the similar fluffy bag back then, I loved buckle boots and I wore rivet accessories. Some things never change. Even the hair looks same. 
On the second day we ended up watching Zeromancer, Oomph! and Front Line Assembly. All were great, but Front Line Assembly was the best. They visited my hometown some years ago, but I missed the gig due to the economic reason, but now I had a chance to see them and it was worth it. With all my heart I could see them again.
