Military look for Murder in the Dark club

I attended the opening of new Gothic Industrial club “Murder in the Dark” on Saturday night at the Gaelic Club, and so thought it appropriate to go back to my monochromatic ways for the night. My first night out since I returned from Japan, I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with old friends and meeting new peeps as well!

Murder in the Dark is the latest venture for Rivetting Promotions, and coming up on 22nd April is the Grendel/Nachtmahr/Shiv-R gig at the Sandringham Hotel Newtown (with other dates in other states) - so mark it in your diaries if you’re into dark electro-industrial music.

But back to the outfit:

Military leopard cap: Kitty Van Horne
Jacket and skirt: Purpur
Frilled Collar: Black Peace Now for men
Diamond tights: Leg Avenue
White wedge boots: Esperanza
see my Esperanza shoe post here for more)
Dreadlock weft: Ales Wigs 
(see my Ales Wigs post here for more info. The weft is pinned around my bun with copious amounts of bobby pins)

 

Here’s a crowd shot at the club from the smoking room…often the busiest place in a club!

The little Kitty Van Horne cap I bought at the Sydney Alternative Rock n Roll Markets, the Purpur outfit at House of Fetish – and I should point out that I do have the matching Purpur cap in slick PVC, but the leopard makes the ensemble a little more whimsical and less matchy matchy.

Outfit posted just so y’all know I haven’t abandoned the dark aesthetic, despite my recent love affair with colour blocking!

    • Thank you! And you absolutely should – the garments are very well made…and the military styling reminds me of Sarah Burton’s first Alexander McQueen collection…altho Purpur was out first :) But the way Sarah made the military look less about the khaki and more about the black slick tailored side, is similar.
      (Oh, and it did look better when I was a few kilos less…working on that!)
