Please excuse the title. However, it IS Sunday and I meet it with not exactly open arms...
My computer and my camera are having a very firm disagreement (in which it appears my computer is giving my camera the silent treatment...) which means until I locate the software... no pictures from me! I promise I will do it tomorrow... I will!
I thought instead I would make a post in which you can still feast your pretty eyes on...
SO... Now for some lovely Aussie gothy goodies that I have been hankering for!
HOW CUTE IS THIS!? This dress is from Canberra designers "Raven." They had a cute little shop in the middle of the city that was my saving grace growing up in Canberra. They had everything a fledgling goth could need! Black nail polish and lipstick, clothes from brands like lip service - as well as their own designs, pots of Manic Panic hair dye... Lush. Unfortunately they closed up shop on the 1st of January of this year. The good part is - they're concentrating on their clothing designs! So we can expect more goodies like this!

You must have been living under a rock to not have heard of Gallery Serpentine! Simply amazing corsetry designers from Sydney! Sometimes I think we Aussie alternative kids have it easy! Click the pic to go to the site.
There are way too many Aussie designers for me to mention in just one post! (If anyone wants to see more - let me know!) But i just HAD to mention Dolly Q.
Dolly Q is the brainchild of Danielle Carson. I first met Dani when she gave me a job working at Dracula's Cabaret Theatre Restaurant! (The two lovely models below worked at Drax too!) Soon after she left Drax to work on Dolly Q - her work is DIVINE and I would spend every paycheck on it if it meant I got to look this gorgeous! Click the pic to go to the site.
And one last thing I simply had to mention - Wildilocks - here in gorgeous Melbourne (and Perth too!) They are an alterative hairdressing salon - as well as having some of the best clothes - with gorgeous well known brands like Phaze (UK) along home grown Aussie designers. They have a webstore too! Oh - and I have to add - if you dye your hair mad colours try Special Effects. Just try it... you'll wonder how you ever lived without it! Click the pic to go to the site.
So what do you think of Australia now? Let me know what you think!
