How to wear a spiked bra!

In response to a comment left on my DIY to do list by 1666 X 30, here are six ways I would suggest wearing a spiked bra.

Personally, I would like to wear it with my underbust corset, but I know that's not for every one. Spiked bras are pretty versatile though. They are easy to wear under an open jacket or vest with jeans (depending on how much skin you want to show), but can also be worn under loose fitting / off-the-shoulder shirts. Get an over sized t and snip until it fits!

To Do List: DIY's

So I really do need to do more DIYs.
And I have quite a few planned.
Here's a few of my current inspirations / Goals:
1. Dangly Chain Collar
2. Lace Choker
3. Goth Hand Candy
4. Black Flower Crown
5. Body Chain Jewellery
6. Leg Garters
7. Studded Bra

I need to order a ton of cone stud beads for the bra. And I'll have to make a trip to a dollar store for some fake flowers... I'm not sure if I'll find them in black... that might have to wait until halloween to find those.

Fun plans!

 Winterlude was very pretty. I'm really glad I got to see it before it melted. I was really crowdd so I think I need to go again in the evening soon to see the sculptures when less people are around, and all the lights are on and vibrant. Pictures ahead!

Printables! Valloween cards

Print out and give to your dearest dead freinds.

And if you'd just like some silly poems try these: 

Roses are Red
Zombies are Green
Won't you be mine
This fine Valloween
 -(Credit: I have no idea where I first heard this version, if you know it's origin I'd like to know who to credit :) )

Or the less friendly version:

Fresh hearts are bloody
Bruises are blue
You think I'm cruddy

And I hate your guts too
-(Credit: Me, although I'm sure there are similar versions out there)

How do you plan on spending this Valloween? With a darling, some buddies or alone? Or is it just another Friday for you?

Winterlude is possibly one of the best things about winter in Ottawa. Beautiful ice-sculptures, lights, festivals, snow castles, skating... it's magical and delightful and a perfect way to fight off the winter woes.

I snapped this picture on my way home from work a couple of days ago. A throne fit for a forest ice queen.

I'm planning an outing to winterlude soon, hopefully this year the ice sculptures don't melt before I get to go see them. I will share lots of pictures when I go!

a haunted house of my very own

Lately I've been fantisizing about obtaining my very own space. I'm kind of living in limbo right now,as my internship is only temporary until I go back to school. And when I'm in school I shan't be making enough money to afford my own place. So my current living arrangement is a temporary one, although I'm very fortunate to have a roof over my head and a bed.

That being said I can't wait until I get to move out and decorate my own place. Black sheer curtains, black pillows, black blankets, black furniture.... Pumpkins and cute bats and fancy artwork and thrifted furniture and re-purposed items. I really can't wait.
One more year... and then I can find a more permanent job and hopefully a place of my own. Growing up isn't sooo bad.
