Raven King Dress [Oct. 20th, 2016|12:04 pm]
This week like many others mostly upset about politics and certain friends who cannot seem to understand why I,(and many) are worried and upset, anyway all that is more for FB  and must try to keep this LJ for the better side of things with adventure & creations.
Off to Glastonbury for the Raven King Ball tomorrow,  Ballgown finally all packed, pleased how the final hair piece works after many failures (after attempting turning cheap wig into rococco one ..it consist of a wig with home made buns wraps inside) .
One amusing incident when i realised the black bird necklace i had attached onto my corset had lost it's beak, so frantic looking around the house for plastic birds. I eventually found one and did mini surgery of beak swapping :) the odd unicorns also were added as after all it is Glastonbury
Just a few snippets until saturday...decided not to go for regency and influence myself on the ball scene in the serie, so gone more ravens and roccocco.

St Bride Ossuary/ Crypt guided tour [Oct. 17th, 2016|06:48 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

Saturday 15 October: St Bride Ossuary guided tour

I have been to a few gigs in St Bride but never realised there was a crypt/museum underneath.  There you can see various foundations and a 19th-century iron coffin, created to deter body snatchers. The crypt was discovered following bombings in the Blitz and thousands of human remains were found. Luckily on this special tour we went behind the public crypt, as a little ossuary is still there, where the remains are still arranged as originally left in.  The crypt corridor also filled with archive boxes full of bones. There was even a little office with wall to wall boxes full of remain and got a fascinating talk by Museum of London bioarcheologist on how they use those for their studies and research. No photos of the remains but added some found online to try illustrate our visit.  Very different to the more opulent decorative ossuary but still as fascinating, especially all the current research happening there currently.
This was part of the excellent Month of the Dead program. http://www.londonmonthofthedead.com/

Stream of Passion Gig [Oct. 17th, 2016|06:42 pm]
Thursday 13 October:Stream of Passion

Great evening with friends. Ade and Andromeda came to London for the gig , so we all went for Bento first. Stream of Passion did a very fab, explosive set for their farewell tour. Pythia had a very different line up to me seeing them previously and loved their matching armours :) Awake by design,  nothing great. Ade stayed over so lots of chatting and a very later night...friday was a bit of a wash out go to bed earlier...so sad it should have been the Goblin Ball, but it got cancelled :(

Darkher, Smallman, SUMER, Subrosa Gig and Paul Birthday [Oct. 12th, 2016|06:01 pm]
Tuesday 11 October: Darkher, Smallman, SUMER, Subrosa Gig and Paul Birthday

Last night started in Bento to celebrate Paul birthday (we were so pleased to have found a carved version of him) followed by a great gig night at the Underworld, fantastic array of bands. Primarily we went there to see Darkher and they didn’t disappoint, dark, atmospheric, lonely, moody, goosebumps intensive music and this time we were able to grab an album. A new discovery were Smallman, kept thinking Orphaned Land meets My dying Bride with added bagpipes. Loved them. The opening band SUMER had a lot of guitars and a great voice and Subrosa, I am still undecided loved the more eeries singing bits, great to see ladies headbanging with their violins and I love their albums artworks but just not sure of the more shouty punky bits. For a Tuesday night not bad, full of yummy bento food, lots of new CD’s and watching bands with lots of friends

Reptile [Oct. 11th, 2016|06:12 pm]
Saturday 8th October: Reptile

Plans were to go on the Zombie walk but i was feeling quite tired and in much need of a day at home , so instead a much needed lie in, finished my raven dress and started plotting for halloween.
in the evening we went to Reptile...so many clashes that night...death in june/murphy mission gigs, invocation, slimelight 29th birthday , reptile..it was so hard to decide but as we missed so many reptiles recently really wanted to go there. It was a good night but lacked friends a little bit as we were all over the place.
I got to wear the latest bolero i made :)

Sunday 9th October:
 i drove us back in one piece from Reptile :) Attempted to bake a chocolate cake for Rob , in exchange of him bringing his car round so we can have a test drive in an automatic to see what the difference is like. Later on Aly joined us and spend the day playing board games .
