Gothic Curly updo for Foundry launch night

Last Friday night was the lauch of a new alternative club night here in Sydney – the Foundry.

As luck would have it, it’s at the Imperial Hotel in Erskineville, just up the road from me! We heard old dance classics like “Where’s Your Head At?”, “Insomnia” and “Voodoo People”, as well as alternative/Industrial classics such as “Dragula” from Rob Zombie, “Du Hast” from Rammstein and Ministry’s “New World Order”.

I decided to put my hair up into huge buns..made possible by the little round doughnut things I brought back from Japan. Once I’d done that, I added the gothic lolita hair rope (this time the curly version), and wrapped it around and around the buns, and leaving a tail hanging out. It ended up looking a bit like a gothic version of the B-52’s girls. What do you think?


Jacket: JC Penney (Ireland)
White corset with fan-lacing: Ebay
Studded armor: Bebe
Black camisole top: somewhere in Reading, UK
Black pvc slashed skirt: Camden Markets
Black skeleton tights: Black Milk
White platform booties: R&E (Japan)
Studded cuffs: La Foret (Harajuku)

As you can see, we have a fairly paltry looking little Xmas tree – we used to live in a small flat and it looked fine, but now we’re in a big house, it’s just WAY too small! Maybe next year….


  1. You look great – love the shoes!!!

  2. Stunning! I love how you’ve styled your hair and done your make-up. Super edgy, sexy outfit too. Smokin’!

  3. Have to agree with you; the hair do and makeup does look reminiscent of the B52 girls – love it!

    I like your tree – it has character and sort of Tim Burtonish with the large ornaments on the smaller tree.

    The day after Christmas is the best time to get a new Christmas tree and decorations as they are marked down 1/2 price and some times are more offbeat and unique as most people buy the more middle of the road stuff.

    • That’s such a great tip…we may well shop for next year’s xmas tree later this week, as you say, when the sales are on 😉 And thanks for the compliment!

  4. This blog is a great source of information which is very useful for me. Thank you.
