I've been told I resemble her.
You can't wear white after Labor Day.
You NEVER wear white to weddings.
The reign of Queen Victoria created the tradition of wearing black to funerals. Though I recently learned blue is also a ceremonial color of mourning...or was it purple? 0.o
Furthermore, I am wearing white to the service and "celebration of life" for my mother. Because frankly, I don't know when else I can wear it.
This is Thérése. (Spelled like Therese, pronounced 'tuh-rez.'.) She's an aspiring artist and sushi chef. In my opinion, she'd also have a good shot at becoming a beautician. We have been best friends since 8th grade. ^-^
This year, she was a Gothic Lolita for Halloween.
^ I'm the lame ghost.
Awhile back, she was a Geisha. She sews her own kimonos! ^___^
And cuts her own hair:
Amongst our friends, there's an inside joke that ANYTHING looks good on her head.
Recently, she attempted the Cyber Goth style:
^ My tights.
^ My boyfriend's goggles.
^ Entirely dressed in my boyfriend's clothes and accesories.
She and I matching:
Dressed in drag:
More childish looks:
All photos were taken by me! No use without permission.
There's more coming as soon as I can figure out how to load the damned bitmaps!
She passed away at 10:35 this morning. Myself, my dad, my grandma, siblings, and aunts were all present.
Today is also my 18th birthday.
In middle school and early high school, I spent a lot of time as a "Mopey Goth."
To this day, I still really like the term "Baby Bat." It sounds adorable. ^-^
I'm dating a Cyber Goth..
I suppose my Pokemon addiction makes me a bit of "Geek Goth."
But most days, I think I'm a "Perky Goth."
What about you?
