My DIY Little Sister from Bioshock cosplay!

Hi everyone!

I haven’t posted in a while, sorry!

I know this is a bit late, but I wanted to share my Little Sister cosplay that I made for rAge Expo at the beginning of this month! I am still deciding whether or not to wear this for Halloween as well.


For those of you who don’t know what a Little Sister looks like, here are some references:


I bought a blue corduroy dress on Bid or Buy for very cheap, and modified it into a Little Sister dress! I have no prop-making skills so I got my friend Leena to make the ADAM syringe for me šŸ™‚




Here’s what I did in order to change this dress into a Little Sister dress:

  1. Cut off the sleeves and about 10cm from the skirt and lined them with white.
  2. Made an apron to tie over the dress.
  3. Added 4 large white buttons above the apron line.
  4. Threw fake blood on everything!


Here’s what I did to complete the look:

  1. Inserted Eye Voodoo contact lenses – I got the Angelic Hazel. Yes I know Little Sisters have yellow eyes, but I didn’t want to buy lenses that I can only wear with this specific look.
  2. I simply did my foundation as usual, but instead of using a translucent powder to set the foundation, I softly went over my skin with white eye shadow
  3. Filled in eyebrows black as usual
  4. Added thicker white eye shadow around my eyes
  5. Added eyeliner in my waterline
  6. Put a little bit of grey lipstick in the centre of my lips and used a brush to smudge it out, creating a dead look.
  7. Tied half of my hair up with a blue ribbon.
  8. And done!


I had so much fun making and wearing this cosplay! It was the first time I cosplayed “properly”, i.e. not my own original characters like I usually do. Bioshock is my favourite game series of all time so I hope I did it justice.




Let me know what you think!






Thrift Fair(s) Haul

Hello everyone!


I love thrifting because it’sĀ an opportunity to get new additions to your wardrobe at an affordable price. I often find very nice items that become staples in my Gothic wardrobe.

Unfortunately in South Africa there aren’t many thrift stores and the ones we do have don’t have a large variety of clothing. This weekend I was so excited that there were TWO thrift fairs happening, organised by different people. I went with my friend from Clarens, who is visiting Pretoria for a while!


I got some really awesome things from both of them, so here are the things I got! Sorry for the poor quality photos. It’s very dark in my apartment and raining outside, so this is the best I could do.


The Harvest Thrift Fair at +27 Cafe – Saturday 23rd July

This thrift fair had free entry and was made up of different thrifty sellers selling their goods. I only bought items from two sellers – Backyard Vintage and Wear It Again. Here’s what I got!


Black top with ruffles and sheer sleeves. From Wear It Again.


Black velvet crop jacket. From Wear It Again.


Green sheer top with ruffles, buttons and bows! From Backyard Vintage.


Long-sleeved velvet top. From Backyard Vintage.

And my favourite find for the day…


El Dante’s platform boots! They have to be glued in a few places and will be dyed and painted black. From Backyard Vintage.


The Thrift Fair at Fort Schanskop, Voortrekker Monument – Sunday 24th July

This one did not feature different sellers. Instead, they had all the items together in a hall on railings, tables and other displays. I found that theĀ prices here were much more reasonable in general. Here’s what I got!


Black lace top with ruffle and button detail.


Zip up top. This kind of reminds me of a military look and it is going to be customised with zippers and spikes.


Black cowboy boots! I have no idea what I’m going to wear these with yet but I think they will look cool.

I also got this dress that I will be using for a shoot! As you can see, I have startedĀ removing the golden flower pattern so that the dress is more to my liking (I’m not a fan of gold). I haven’t decided exactly what I am going to shoot with this yet, but it will be something awesome šŸ˜‰



I’m also currently selling some of my clothes here, if you are interested!


Thanks for reading!






So I know it’s a bit delayed, but I’d like to share the photos fromĀ Attrition.

Attrition was this past Sunday and the theme was Vampirates!



I can’t wait for next Attrition! I will also be DJing there for the first time! I was supposed to DJ on Sunday but we had some technical difficulties with my music which will be sorted for next time.
