A Mighty Revamping!

So it has been a long while since my last post.  I was fully intending to completely stop blogging as I had simply lost interest.

I am not feeling an urge to post again so rather than start a whole New blog I have decided I will instead revamp this one!

This will include a change of name, a whole new look, and a slight change in the theme of my posts.

I will not be deleting any of my old posts as they are the roots of this blog as well as holding some treasured memories.  My thoughts and feelings while writing these posts have all worked to make me the person I am today and I think will help keep a record of how I have grown and evolved as a person.

Some posts you can look forward to in the near future are an update on my life between ny last post and now, some tunes that are a current fav of mine, current reading lists and so on!

I am excited to hear from the few of you that may still be lurking around from before, so don't be afraid to leave comments or even suggestions on posts you would like to see!

Adventures with Turqoise Hair

Hello, my lovely followers(and anyone else that might be lurking around).  So about two weeks ago i decided I needed a change from the pink hair and decided my next colour choice was going to be Atomic Turqoise from Manic Panic.

I bleached my roots before dying but did not bleach the faded pink dye out of my hair because I am trying to do minimal damage, especially after bleaching the black out of my hair within the last year.  This caused the hair to go a very vibrant teal at the roots and a sort of swampy green colour, that looked kinda seafoamish in bright lights.

This is a picture of it in darker lighting.  You can't see the roots but the rest is clearly not very vibrant.
This one is from the next day and the lights are brighter.  You can see that the roots are very vibrant, and although the rest looks better in this picture than the first it was still not the colour I wanted.
Because I was not very happy with the original dye job i decided to wait a week and try again.  This time I left the dye on 3 hours instead of 1 and also applied heat using my hair blower.  And finally I am happy with the results...
Very pretty colour and almost even toned.
I dyed it the second time last week.  I have only washed it once so far and I mixed dye with the shampoo.  So far the dye has not faded which is good.  Hopefully it will last atleast the three weeks that the pink would last before re-dyeing.

Anyway i am happy with the colour the second time around but would reccomend that anyone who tries this dye to leave it in a few hours and to apply heat.  Also it works much better on freshly bleached hair.

Happy Late Halloween!

Got some pictures for you guys from halloween.  I took much more than this but I was too lazy to post them all.

I had to wear stuff i already owned because I have no money.  I figured I looked kind of like a doll so that's what I told people i was.
Also i painted my friend blue!

Anyway I hope you all had a great and spooky Halloween!

Halloween Make Up

hello, it has been a while.  I never seem to know anything to post about.  I really am horrible at this blogging thing.  Iwas considering quiting all together and just keeping my tumblr, but this blog has helped me through some of my lowest points and i think I would feel as if something were missing if it was completely gone.

Anyway.  Halloween is approaching rather quickly so I have decided to share with you what my make up look will be for what is mine, and probably most of your, favourite holiday!

This is my first time trying out black lips and I must admit, I don't hate it on myself like I thought I would.

Still Kicking Around

Hey guys, its been a while since I have posted.  I haven't really had anything interesting going on in my life.
 ended up moving back to residence instead of living in an apartment aside from that I haven't been doing much.

Anyway, I have an outfit to show you plus a picture of some badges I made.

Reactions of Outsiders.

Yesterday I went to the mall with a friend of mine that dress alternatively as well.  While walking to the mall we had two men in a car honk their horn and make kissy faces at us.  We were amused by this reaction and actually blew kisses back.  Afterwards we laughed at the situation and went on our way and nearly forgot about it.  While at the mall we got the usual stares and wide eyed children not quite knowing what to think.  One little girl in particular pointed up at us and asked her mother "mommy, what's that?"(probably referring to my friends mohawk).  Her mother politely smiled at us and told the little girl to say hi.  The little girl obeyed and gave us one of the cutest smiles I have ever seen.

So overall fairly good reactions.  But then while walking back to my friends apartment a car drove by us honked its horn and the guy stuck out his middle finger at us.  Neither my friend and I were really insulted, I mean seriously why would we care what some random person driving by thinks, but we were left extremely confused.  We didn't quite understand what he was trying to do by insulting us, were we supposed to go home and cry and never dress this way again.  It just didn't make any sense why someone would even be angry at another persons appearance, especially a person you are probably never going to see again in your life.

So anyway yesterday made me think of other reactions I have received from outsiders.  There have been instances of seeing the same car circling the block three times just to get better looks at me, people full out stopping on the side of the street just to stare, and one rather creepy man that will walk out of his house and to the end of his property when I walk by with my friend.

There have also been some polite people to such as an elderly lady telling me I dressed much more classy than most of the young girls she sees.  Countless compliments and questions asking where I found certain wardrobe pieces or how I got my hair a certain colour and so on.

This wasn't really much of a post or anything, I just felt like sharing some of the everyday reactions I receive based on the way I dress.

If you would like to share some of the reactions you get just leave a comment, even if I don't reply I do read ever single one :P
