…Stark in their dark and white
Dread in monochrome…

~ The Sisters of Mercy, “Adrenochrome”

So, my darklings, let’s talk about natural disasters. They’re erratic, unpredictable, and have the power to lay entire states, regions, and even countries to waste. As I am sure most of you are aware, there was an earthquake in Nepal on 25 April that killed thousands, injured even more, and left countless Nepalese homeless. Late last night, I received a very special blogger box from ImmateriA. Inside was a brand new release…and a portion of the proceeds from this top is going to a charity called Join Hands. This charity has partnered with the World Food Program to help bring relief to the Nepalese who have been affected by the earthquake, so it’s truly “fashion for a cause,” so to speak.

Not only is the Madhu top for a good cause, it’s absolutely gorgeous! The fabric is a rich silk with a diamante pattern sprinkled over it. There is a buckle fastening the strappy lower parts of the shirt in the back, and it features a very chic one-shoulder design. The most striking detail of the top, though, is the ruffle around the corner of the neck. It’s lined in a vivid crimson, which really stands out against the inky top. I even picked my hair specifically to showcase it. My skirt is also from ImmateriA, and is part of the Prosperine outfit. The waistband matches the top very well, and I just love the crinkle texture and mini train…it reminds me of one of my favourite Real Life® skirts that I wear all the time. I’ve never been much for flat shoes, but a few weeks ago I broke down and purchased the Slink flat feet because they simply seemed essential for some outfits. The sandals I have on are from Pale Empress. They’re actually the first sandals I purchased for flat feet, and are still my absolute favourite, hands down. They come in a fatpack of wonderfully rich jewel tones (plus black, of course!) and are beautifully detailed. I wanted to keep the focus on my clothing, so I opted to accessorize lightly. I’m wearing bracelets from Pure Poison and a blood vial necklace by Chop Shop. The necklace is available at Spooky Cute and comes in two styles, one with fangs inside the blood and a cork stopper, and the variant I have on, which is only filled with blood and has a black stopper. Both have little pentagrams dangling from the neck of the vial and long cords, perfect for draping over your favourite top, hanging between your cleavage (if you’re a lady), or highlighting those pecs (I am looking at you, gents).

I’m wearing my favourite skin again! It’s the Yurei Ghost skin from Stargazer Creations. Like I have said in previous posts, it is incredibly elegant and the eye makeup simply screams classic Goth. It makes me feel like I am channeling Siouxsie whenever I wear it. The lipgloss I have on is available at Spooky Cute and is actually compatible with multiple mesh head and mouth brands…including Slink Visage, the head that I always wear. I adore the black/red gradient, and how it absolutely makes my lips pop. Recently, I have been wearing a tattoo that is Wicca-themed, and being a practitioner, myself, I really love it. The design is full of symbolism including the full Wiccan Rede on the back. Currently, you can pick it up at Totally Top Shelf…it’s worth a look if you’re a practitioner of the Craft or simply enjoy Occult symbolism.
