So, I’ve been sitting on these pictures for a few days now, waiting for the right moment to post, or see if I could come up with some good words to go with them..but I’m drawing a blank. The first image is hard to explain actually. I know what goes through my head as I take pictures and listen to music. I get inspired by whatever I listen to and want to somehow bring that to life in my images. This one got kind of depressing. Then again, I think some of us can relate.

I love Sentenced so very much. While at times the lyrics get very dark and depressing, it also fills me with a quiet sense of happiness. It soothes me and calms me down, some songs even do make me happy and sing along, but mainly it’s so soothing, like it strikes some kind of cord inside me. It’s hard to explain, really.

No more beating as one

Take this love, my dear, and cherish it in your heart
You shall have no fear’
Nothing could tear us apart
Accept this love sincere, from the bottom of my heart
for now our time is here’
and love shall heal the scars

Gone are the times when I felt alive
Gone are those nights with you by my side
And now here I stand as the shadows grow deep

Some days music speaks to me. Most often it’s the Finnish group Sentenced, and while these pictures are based around two songs, I’ll just link the first.

Blinded by light, enlightened by darkness

I was blinded by the light

I’m enlightened by the dark
by spirits in the night
blackened as they rise

Dead
Look into my eyes
like mirrors open wide
I’m already there

Nothing quite says “Good morning sunshine” then a little Necrophobic and gory pictures, yes?

It is quite fun to see how different the same skin can look on different people. This is the Mia skin from Glam Affair, currently at the Fairy Tales of 2012 event.

Vote for love

Inspired by this song from Tiamat

I’m sure all of you have noticed by now the massive support Stand4Love has recived, and it warms my heart to see. If you want to read more about it, here is the blog with all the info. However, I will also copy this bit of info.

Our goal is to spread awareness that two consenting adults should have the right to love and marry regardless of their race or sexual orientation. If we can open someone’s mind and promote tolerance and equality, then our goal has been achieved.

The lyrics in the background of the picture is by Sentenced, one of the most beautiful love songs I know, by far.

What I am wearing in this picture is really irrelevant, as it is the message that is important, but still, I’ll go from memory on what I am wearing.

a rose for the dead

What is goth indeed? For me, it is this song. I fell in love with that song as a teenager, completely and utterly in love. It is thanks to that song alone I found metal…goth/death/black/doom/thrash..what have you..all of it. I called myself a goth when I was younger, dressed and looked the part. It made me who I am today. That is a lot to put on one song alone, but for me it is true. It is beautiful, and to this day when I listen to it, I can just sit back and smile.

The contrast of Liv’s voice against Raymond’s. Brightness against darkness. Beauty in darkness. It drew me in and I love it, it still gives me chills down my spine.

For quite some time I have meant to do pictures for this song, because I love it so much…but I really couldn’t think of anything I could ever do that would give such beauty justice. These pictures pale in comparison, I simply do not have the skill to capture in picture what this song tells me, no way, no how.  I tried tho, I did my best. I do not want to cheat and process these images in Photoshop for hours, cause that would be lying to you and to myself. ..both about the pictures, and what I am showing off.

Yes, I am showing off more things from the Goth Fair. It is an event I jumped on to take part in, and I am happy I got accepted…so very happy. The money donated goes to a very good cause, one I feel very strongly for, even if it was, sad to say, the first I heard about it.  Here is a link to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation.

As a person who dresses differently, listens to music that isn’t main-stream, and who is also damn proud of it, you can be sure I have had my fair share of abuse for it. I have heard so many mean things said about me, so many things thrown my way, so much abuse. They will not scare me into conforming into their little perfect world. I am who I am, and I am proud to be..I wish more could be. That is why I support this foundation. We should all be allowed to express how we feel by the way of our looks, by the music we listen to, without having to face abuse for it.

I ran out of words I belive. I can’t say more about this..but that is how I feel, and I support this cause with all my heart…because thats who I am. I am different, I support those who are.

Danger, danger

High Voltage!

Cause thats where this smexy black leathery outfit from SAKIDE comes from. Oh yes, it’s hunting time again, and this is one hunt Im deffo keeping my eyes on, Ive seen some good stuff in it already, and Im sure there is lots more, I just havent had time to finish it yet.

Now..the danger with blogging while listening to music is that I just had to sit on my hands to resist the urge to strike a pose and sing out loud to myself “I shout it loud and proud, I am the hyper star”. Yes, I do love my Samael >.> (Serious bonus points if you know what song that is without checking :P)

See Kinu, I told you I would run and buy a white/silver catsuit once you finished this outfit..and I was right, I does look awesome together. :P
