I thought for my 6,666 post I’d share my experience at The Devils Carnival/Repo The Genetic Opera double bill! (Also! Friends! I tried to keep photos of you guys out of it, not sure if you wanted them on tumblr, message me if you’d like the ones you are in down). LOTS of photos and text, I tried to put this under a cut, hope it works!

My favorite part about having an object you love, is that moment when you realize you’ve used it until they are worn down and the novelty has worn off. They break down, and the fear or destroying them is gone. They are reborn and become something new and even more magical
“She’s got oxblood boots and a carney’s laugh
a silver spoon with a razor’s edge
Veins as fine as rabbit hair
her blood runs cold as gravel in there
She wears a derby hat and a black pea coat
stands on the stern of a cap-sized boat
In a world washed a-flood with sin
She cries out through a fang-lined grin
There’s no more room in hell, boys
no more room in hell
Ain’t a plot of ground to keep a dead man down
There’s no more room in hell”
-The Scarring Party
My favorite pair of Oxblood Boots… with a few… renovations
Discomforting territory, and I am displaced beyond the boundaries of common or implied decency now. But my recollection is proof a better place, a world of my own, and if my endurance can surpass my wit, I can return to that place, only because I’ve stolen what should have never been in my possession to begin with. Until that day, I’ll pass the time counting the clock towers that position proudly, explore what actually lay beyond the gates of what we believed be withered ash, and cloak the bounds of my creation.
Concealed by the door within the door that no key hole will ever unveil, lots of love from

whatsinthestitches asked: OAO Ms. Lavender, I dont wanna bug, but do you plan to do a tutorial on your cheshire facepaint? ; v ; ;;;
Oh my! Um, I could definitely do so once I get better materials! The white that I used for the teeth was cream based, so it was EXTREMELY difficult to get darker values, and it smudged pretty easily. I could definitely do one this weekend :) What would be more helpful? A step by step with photos or a video? I’ve never made an official tutorial before, so any input would be wonderful!
