Today Merissa and I went to see Frankenweenie. We also did some shopping.

I really love early Tim Burton, his new stuff I can't stand. Maybe I'm too elitist :P
Frankenweenie was great, I loved that everything was in black and white. His characters are interesting, and the story was cute. Because we went at 2pm Monday there was no one else in the cinema.

Look what I found in a music store!! It's a Coffin Case for microphones, but seeing as I'm not a muscian I'm going to use it for other stuff.
Original price was $80 and I got it for $40! Worth it!
The inside is this lovely squishy foam. I'm going to rip it out and glue down some crushed velvet.
I bought two prints and a calendar from Typo (a popular hipster type store)
I drew this tip jar for my volunteer work at the Rooftop Movies. They are showing horror movies all week.

Shock and Horror

On Saturday I went shopping with Dani in Perth. I went to the optometrist to get my eyes checked and choose some new glasses. It was a very hot day, I'm not looking forward to summer :(

I wore:
Shirt: BeMe
Skirt: Evans
Belt: Torrid
Tights: ?
Winklepickers: Dr. Marten (vintage!!)
I love the hi-low skirt. My friend calls them 'mullet' skirts :(
Here is Dani looking cute like always
We had waffles for lunch. Yum!
I also had this fantastic mango smoothie.
We took timezone photos!
I bought so much stuff! Three pairs of earrings. I love the ones on the left, they're so trad goth.
I've been looking everywhere for a coffin bracelet, glad I finally found one.
The candle store Dusk had their Halloween stuff on sale. I bought this haunted house decoration that holds tea light candles inside the windows.
Candle holder.
Halloween food!!!! I have no idea what the ghost twisties taste like, I don't know what 'spooky flavour' is suppose to be! I bought about four packets of them, and three of the screme eggs. I've already eaten two packets of the screme eggs! :-/
Green inside!

I was invited to a friends Halloween party on Saturday night, but I hadn't prepared a costume! Luckily I cobbled together something from clothes I already own, I went as a 1950's kind of girl.

I curled my hair at the front and wore a bandanna. I made my eyebrows curved. It's a very different look for me, very 'girly'
Top: Target
Belt: Torrid
Skirt: Domino Dollhouse
I also wore a black petticoat underneath, from Domino Dollhouse also
I love the circle skirt, it's been in my wardrobe for ages but I never wear it. Domino Dollhouse is a great store for plus-size girls. Very unique items.
Merissa looked lovely with Day of the Dead makeup!
Lots of spooky decorations around the DJ area :)
The best part about the party was my friends new puppy!!! He's so darn cute, and it made me realise that I'm much more a dog person (although I do like cats too!)
This is their other dog Snuffy. He's a bit timid, but a softy.
The puppy is named Damage, here he is licking Merissa.
Merissa made him a spider costume!! AAAH SO CUTE!!!
I wanted to steal him.

This Summer I'm volunteering at the Rooftop Movies in Perth. I am very excited that I get to do this, I've been bugging my friend to put in a good word for me. He volunteered last year. The season opened last week, and I had my training on opening night. I'll be running the popcorn machine, which is easy. Afterwards I can stay to watch the film!
It's maybe one or two nights a week currently, my shifts are when I'm free.

I hope this is a step towards crushing my depression. I'll be talking to customers a lot, and putting on my game face.

The temporary cinema is on top of a carpark in the middle of Perth. The Perth skyline is in the background. Very beautiful on a Summers night.
There are palm trees, pink flamingos, and caravans around the area. And astro-turf!
Here is the popcorn machine that I run! I make sure to keep it clean and tidy.

DIY Patches

Tired of overpriced patches? I know that I am. I wanted something simple, some bats. Everything online was expensive, so I decided to make a patch myself. You can choose whatever design you like.

You will need:
- Cotton for your patch
- Paper
- Sheet of transparent plastic
- Sponge roller
- Fabric paint
- Scalpel, knife thing
- Scissors, pencil, eraser
- Cutting mat (optional)
This is the brand of fabric paint that I use.
The transparent plastic is the stuff that's used on overhead projectors at school.
Step 1: Cut out the fabric in the size you want. I used black cotton Drill because it's thick and doesn't stretch.
Step 2: Get your design. I drew my design, just simple bats. Remember to keep it simple!
Step 3: You can either put your plastic over the top or under the design. Time to cut it out!
BE CAREFUL!!! The scalpel is sharp!
Cut out bats. Not perfect, but it was my first try.
Place the plastic over the cotton.
Step 4: Get your fabric paint and cover your roller. I always use an old icecream lid as my pallet. Make sure you have enough paint!
Step 5: Roll over your image. Make sure not to move the plastic and get every bit!
Take of the plastic and see what you've done. Looking good! My plastic moved a bit, leaving a strange edge on some of the bats, I think it looks cool though.
Wash your plastic, and roller. I left enough space on my plastic so I can cut out more images.
Let your patch dry overnight.
Step 6: Heat seal the fabric paint. This makes sure that it can be washed. I also ironed the sides down because I'm going to sew it so it doesn't fray.
Turned down sides.
Step 7: Sew around the edges so it doesn't fray. This step is optional.
The finished product! Now it's ready to be sewn onto your favourite jacket or bag!
I think I did well on my first try, you can see how the bats look funny on the top right hand side. I like the effect though.
