My Favourite Pictures and Memories from October

Hello everyone!

Here’s another post that’s part of the ESG: My favourite picture of the month October swap on Swap-Bot.

 

This month has been very hectic due to events with my jewellery stall and projects for university. Luckily I have a few photos to share.

 

The first two photos are from rAge Expo, which is a gaming and geek convention. I had my jewellery stall there the whole weekend. It was awesome, but I got barely any sleep! These were my two cosplay looks for the weekend – the first being Megara the forest nymph (the tattoo on my arm – I will write a blog post about her sometime soon). The second was my Little Sister cosplay from Bioshock. I made the cosplay myself and I am so happy with it!

The next one is an adorable photo of my three rats sleeping in their hammock! From left to right, they are: Dovahkiin, Eddie and Merlin! They don’t often sleep in the same spot at the moment because it’s so hot, so I just had to capture this moment.

My university’s year end function theme was Rebels & Outlaws and a few people begged me to dress Goth so I did πŸ™‚ Here I am with my research methodology lecturer Hawken and my Brand Challenge cheerleader (the lecturer that was assigned to my group for Brand Challenge to keep up our morale), Amelia. We made up a story that they were a couple and I was their lovechild because our outfits matched so perfectly!

And lastly, here’s my boyfriend and I on Halloween. We decided to go as vampires, because he hates dressing up and it was the least amount of effort xD

I hope you enjoyed hearing about my month!

My Favourite Pictures and Memories from July

Hello everyone!

 

Wow this year is flying! I can’t believe another month has passed already.Β This post is part of a swap on Swap-Bot called ESG: My favourite picture of the month July.

 

I did this photoshoot on 10 July and I had so much fun! I am so in love with the result as I have wanted to do a shoot like this with my electric violin for a long time.

Next up is a photo I took of myself to promote the new scarab beetle necklace that I made for my jewellery business. I tried to match my makeup with the necklace and really liked the result.

I also bought these amazing New Rock boots secondhand from someone. They are definitely my favourite shoes that I own! I have wanted New Rocks for many years but could never afford them so I was so happy that I managed to snatch these up as they are in excellent condition!

The last photo is my look for a goth event I went to. I have been under a lot of stress lately so decided to really have fun and dress up for this one. I really like how it came out and got lots of compliments on the night.

I hope you enjoyed my photos!

My Favourite Pictures and Memories from May

Hi everyone!

It’s been a while since I posted. Life has been quite chaotic recently and May was a very busy month!

This post is actually part of a swap on Swap-Bot called ESG: My favourite picture of the month May. I generally sign up for these every month so I thought it would be nice to do them as a blog post from now on.

This first one was from our monthly Goth event called Attrition. I don’t like my smile but just thought that this was an awesome photo because it shows that Goths can also be happy!

The second photo was taken at Geekfest. I had a stall there on both days and on the first day my boyfriend and I were dressed as vikings.

The third photo is from my graduation! We are still waiting for the official photos, but we took this before the ceremony.

The last photo is from Iron Maiden’sΒ The Book Of Souls TourΒ Johannesburg show. We had been waiting for this day for almost a year! They are my boyfriend’s favourite band and we never thought we would get the chance to see them in South Africa. We hope we get another chance to see them soon.

 

These were my favourite photos and memories from May! I hope you enjoyed them. I am going to try to post more often!

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.
