Outfits for Voltaire, and Cobweb Club

I went out to see the New York goth cabaret performer (and animator) Voltaire on Friday night – and had a brilliant time! He’s extremely funny, a lot of the humour coming from the being-alternative perspective.

And he can sing! The music definitely comes from a folk place (or in some cases country), but he jazzes it up with humour and pizazz, and is a very charismatic performer. Alas, I got no good shots of him, but here’s my outfit shot from the night.

I don’t always get super-duper dressed up – I was in the same jeans I wore to work for “Jeans for Genes” day.  Jacket – Cue, striped jeans – Tripp, argyle corset – Dangerous Nude, Corset belt on hips – Gallery Serpentine, spiky necklace – Tree of Life, fingerless striped gloves – i-socks (Malaysia).
I also neglected to post pics from the Cobweb club last week, so here’s a few, where I backcombed my hair like woah and went more deathrock (natch).
Here I am with Brigitte Handley, of the Dark Shadows (who I’m seeing this Friday, supporting Christian Death – come along if you’re in Sydney!)

Here’s the clip for “Dave Likes Dolls” so you can check them out.

  1. Sounds like a great show. You look amazing. I love your makeup, hair, everything for the Cobweb Club especially.

  2. Haha, how did I know you would? Thanks once again :) The quality of pics isn't great, which is why I snuck it in on a quiet Sunday.
