Horror and Tease Show

The month comes to its end and one of my favorite season is going on which of course means some celebrating. What is Halloween without some good parties? Last Saturday I headed to see Burlesque and this was most likely the best show I have ever seen. Absolutely stunning ideas, costumes which was all put together. Unfortunately I didn't have a proper camera with me so I desperately tried to capture shots by phone. My favorite character was Nosferatu which was made so perfectly and was fancy too. 


I was too lazy again and "forgot" to plan the costume for myself.. why I always realize it too late? So I just put something on what I quickly found in the wardrobe after the work shift. I felt really underdressed amongst those amazing outfits. I should start planning the outfit the months before Halloween so that I wouldn't miss it. I always think that next year I will robe myself until the time comes and I notice to be without the dress.

A group portrait and you can see Nosferatu on left side. Also Clea Cutthroat was super, but well they all were! 
Well known character from Sweeney Todd and now I want to see the movie.

Hvis Lyset Tar Oss

A short peek to a day's look and a new t-shirt which arrived the other day. The darkness starts falling quite early which complicates taking of the outfit pictures in the nature light, but today I managed to make use of the sun. 

A while ago I ordered Burzum's t-shirt which I had been admiring for months and today I decided to put it on with the new second hand skirt and knitting which has been on nearly every day due to the cold weather which teases us here in Finland. On Sunday it was already snowing and I couldn't decide is it cool or not. Seriously for the next six months will be more or less freezing until the sun starts to increase its power again. 
Tomorrow there would be Mayhem playing and I can't choose whether to go or no. It would be kind of tempting, but the tickets are fairly expensive. On Saturday there is a burlesque night and that sounds good too except that I have a morning shift on Sunday, but this wouldn't be the first time if I arrived at the work after short sleeps.

She is staring at the sky

An outfit from the week. I managed to find a pencil skirt in the flea market a week ago and it was like new. The skirt is made of a stretchy material including a lining. I find it's pretty quality and fits perfectly. Sometimes I need to narrow a hip from the ready-made skirts because my hip is quite nonexistent, but not this time. A mesh shirt is many years old which I bought when I lived in Savonlinna and a harness is self made.

During the week I've been drawing and sketching quite much. I realized that I never draw animals except the birds so I tried to practice drawing of a cat and it was fun. Usually I'm drawing people and that comes because I'm a fashion designer and I'm mostly designing clothes so it's natural to me draw the humans.. but it makes good to try something new every now and then. And speaking of the new things I have become interested in photographing the stars of the Milky Way. Unfortunately it has been too cloudy now so I haven't managed to shoot any shot yet. An autumn is great time to stare at the stars, but of course the sky must be clear. I have always been interested in the space, stars, planets and astrology, but I have never taken the photos of the stars. I have photographed a lot of the moon, but somehow I have passed those flickering spots of the sky. I photograph a lot of the nature and I miss the new subjects so I got this idea to start taking pictures of the Milky Way. Now I'm just waiting for the clear nights!

You are a vision in blood

Finally I have a moment to open blogger; these days seem to run although I wouldn't have anything specific on the hand.  Okay now I need to admit  being hooked to play with the new laptop when it's possible after a while and every nerd knows how quickly the time disappears with a good game. I have been really happy with the choice to buy Lenovo Yoga. So far it has been working smoothly. 

During last week we rented a table in the flea market and I manage to sell some stuff, but a lot of was not sold too. I don't have any idea what to do with the rest of goods. So far I brought them to the attic. I managed to made a few nice findings myself too, but I come those later. 
An outfit from the weekend and new shoes which I bought some time ago.  I wanted to get the flat bottomed shoes for the autumn and ended up getting these. These are from Skopunkten and because there is always the offer "buy two and get the cheaper pair at half price"  I took another pair too. Most my shoes are heels so these come for the need.  My legs are sometimes so tired  (because of the gym) that I feel more comfy while wearing not heels.

This week seems to be quite easy when it comes to the work. Short shifts so I try to spend quality time with the sewing machine.

Yoga

After the last post I made a decision to order Lenovo Yoga and that arrived on Monday. My weekend spent so slowly when I just waited for Monday to come. I ended up choosing Lenovo instead of Mac because this was of course a bit cheaper, but in addition included more memory and I was interested in 2 in 1 feature which means that this works also as a tablet due to the touch screen. The screen turns 360-degrees and this is powerful enough for games and software. I tested to play with it and it worked so smoothly. I'm poor, but really joyful! 
An outfit which I wore the other day. 
It's inktober time so I've drawn everything too over the month. I'm really glad that I've found the inspiration again. This one is my Poe drawing which I made by markers. 
Nothing much has happened. The big new was that I got the new laptop so I can write a blog much easier from now on when I don't need to fight with the powerless computer.

Rotting world

I've been armed with my camera for the past days and been wandering around the dying nature. Last Friday was so beautiful foggy weather and I had an evening shift which made it possible to admire the nature through the lens in the morning and I ended up shooting the  hundreds pictures. Unfortunately I'm still bounded to my old laptop and only because I can't choose the new one to me. Going through those shots with my old computer is such a slow path that I publish just these few pictures with you. 
I do hope the nature gives us more the days like these. 

And back to that computer issue! This starts to be ridiculous. I've been pondering a new laptop for months now and still I can't decide which model I should buy.  MacBook Pro is tempting because I have never had Mac and people say it's good. Then again it's also really expensive and I'm so used to work with Windows. The second option is Lenovo Yoga and I also considered Lenovo game laptop. Yesterday I visited a store and several sellers asked if I need help. Yes I do need a help to make a decision.
