This look doesn’t entirely suit me at this point in my life, but there was a time when I would have died for an outfit like this. After I finished suiting up for this photo shoot, Mr. Kitty pronounced me a “Gothic Ninja Video Game Character.” Sweet! Neither of us play video games, but that doesn’t stop us from wanting to look cool like video game characters. Not sure I could really do any ninja kicks in 10-pound New Rocks, though… I did end up enjoying this outfit enough that I wore it all day, and over to visit my parents that evening, but generally speaking I much prefer a more delicate look.
Speaking of New Rocks, I really only bought these for my trip to Ireland with my dad (nearly 10 years ago). I was already fully engrossed in my love of high heels at that time, but I knew I would need something comfortable if I were to spend three weeks just walking around. I’d heard of the legendary, cushiony comfort of these boots, and it sure turned out to be true. I haven’t worn them much since returning from the trip, although they do come in handy for construction work and the like. Yeah, I do construction work in $300 boots. And now you are wondering why a Web designer with a Gothic fashion blog does construction work… That’s a story for another day. ;-D
Many thanks go to Mr. Kitty for his art direction on this shoot. Okay, he mostly just suggested putting the camera on the floor and aiming it up, which is how we got the two cool shots above.
Perseus was more than a little annoyed that this is our third monthly theme and we still haven’t done one centered around cats. In protest, he planted himself on my backdrop and refused to move. I ended up working around him (read: slid him over until he was just outside the frame) and he was still crashed out there an hour after I had finished. Someday I will do a cat theme, Perseus: I promise!
Now it’s your turn! You know what to do (or if you don’t, check out the full details). 🙂
