So last weekend was Resistanz festival, this is my 3rd time out of the 4 years it’s been around and it was a lot of fun! For those of you that don’t know (which I guess would be most of you, it’s a pretty small festival) Resistanz is a 3 day indoor fesival held near my home town in Sheffield, based around Industrial music. The closest I have got to describing what Industrial music is “heavy dancy-ravy-stompy music for goths” it’s not perfect but for now it will do! One part of this festival that I particularly love is that it gives me the opertunity to dress up, so I thought I’d share what I created wth you. I have to say I was very unorganised this year, and didn’t go into it with anything planed or any new clothes. I just hashed together what I had and saw how I felt on the day, with that concidered I didn’t do too bad!
P.S I know, I know, iphone selfies but I am saving up for a proper camera so in the mean time, it’s as good as I’ve got!
For day 1 I thought I would go for something simple, the t shirt is an old design from Cyberdog, the skirt I recently picked up from internacionale for £9.99, it’s a blue and green tartan and I love it it’s defiantly going to be one of my go to skirts. The shoes are old Demonia platforms I got on ebay a couple of years ago, (I love them, there so cute and the contrasting white piping makes them look like chunky Alice in Wonderland shoes. Finally the tights are from New look £4.99 and are the greatest tights I’ve ever bought, I wore them every day!
I decided to do something totally different with my hair that i’d never tried before, a fauxhawk based on this tutorial
by ALB in Wonderland. I have to say considering I had never tried it before, and I never do anything with my hair, I’m pretty impressed with how this turned out. It wasn’t perfect but if I try it again I think I would know how to fix where I went wrong, hopefully I have an excuse to try it again soon. Make up wise I thought I would go back to my old Studio Sculpt foundation by Mac
as I thought this would be higher coverage and last longer through all my dancing, however I have to say this made me realise why I was so happy when I switched to Illimasqua skin base. The colour isn’t as good for my skin and the coverage wasn’t as hight as I remembered. I also used my Sugarpill eyeshadows in Darling and Hysteric,
my lipstick is Revlon colourburst matte balm in Shameless and finished off with purple and green bindis.
Day 2 was more of a traditional rivethead goth look. The PVC top is an old Ann Summers design, which is too small for me really but hidden under a corset I can get away with it. The under-bust corset is from ebay, the skirt was £4.99 from Select last year and goes with so many of my outfits. The boots are Demonia and at £109 they are by far the most expensive shoes I will ever buy, but I know they are going to last me years! The shrug is the same one that was in my black Friday/cyber Monday blog post, it was £20.00 from Cyberdog and I love it, during the first day I picked up a mini pink and black latex hat and these black and purple latex cat ears from the festival for £12.00 and I love them!
Make up wise I went back to my Illimasqua Skin Base and kept the make up pretty single, my Barry M Wink eyeliner marker pen £4.59, was a saviour as always!
By the third day I was struggling to want to get ready, I was exhausted and a little hung over so I picked clothes for comfort and speed! I wore a super old Primark top with the same tartan skirt from the first day (told you I got lazy). I switched to ballet pumps because 2 days of platform shoes were really taking there tole (no wonder I don’t wear heels!). I finished it off with this amazing crown £29.00 from Janine Basil, I have a post about this item coming up next week so keep your eyes open. My Pikachu bag I had picked up from Hot topic when I visited the US a couple of summers ago, I wore it everyday, you can’t fit much into it but it’s so cute!
Make up wise I was so tired by this point I didn’t care, lots of concealer, lots of foundation, a bit of eyeliner. Oh and a ton of glitter that i decided to use as a highlighter! I highly recommend this to cheer up your day!
So there you go! Sorry I’ve been quieter then usual, I’ve been really busy and really tired for the last few weeks, I have a lot of stuff on at the moment but hopefully I can keep up, I have so much I want to write about that I can’t wait to share it with you!
Thank for sticking with me 🙂
