At the risk of spoiling a surprise or two, I'm going to tell you a bit about my Friday plans. This Friday has gained a couple of levels of awesome, as we are going clubbing at a Steampunk/Goth club that emerges out of another club like a lemur scenting lemons.* So yesterday, I schlepped over to the Salvation Army** and bought myself some fun and awesome steampunk clothes. Given the potential readership of this blog, you may or may not know what a good steampunk/goth costume worthy of clubbing might look like. So I shall endeavor to give you some clues.
First, a little word about Goth. Goth is no longer as simple as wearing black lipstick and black clothes and having odd piercings. Here is a tip:
This girl may look creepy, but that's kinda the point of the Goth look. She is also stylish. Goth stylish. My plan is to take this look, keep the black eyes, make the red shadow green, and the lips bright red. It'll be a little less "Darkness abounds" and a little more "Poison Ivy."
*Don't ask me why lemurs like lemons, I don't know. But it's a scientific fact!^
^Not actual scientific fact.
**Did you know that Wednesdays are 1/2 price at the Salvation Army in Austin? Well, now you know.^^
^^See! I'm keeping to the theme of the blog! You have learned a new and valuable Austin fact!
***In case I need to, you know, hijack an airship. Hmmm...probably not the best idea to bring a 10 inch dagger to a club. Alcohol + dagger = baaaaad plan
