Marie Antoinette Punk!

I punked this ship fascinator hairpiece with chains, tartan ribbon and safety pins. I Frankenstein-ed the flowers mashing up pink and animal print and beware the base is leopard print with pink edging.

Making Hats.

I felt sorry for this poor vintage creature when I found him at the London Dungeon car boot sale. Yes! they really did have a stall selling all their Jack the Ripper tour stuff and booty when they moved location in London. I curled the vintage creature round the brim of a brown tweed hat with a few other curios and artifacts.

Human bones rain down at Whitby after church yard land slide.

Some more photos from the Bram Stoker International Film Festival fashion show 2012 taken at Whitby, UK. the celebrated town of Dracula and wonderful for all followers of goth.  Whitby has recently been in the news for its terrible land slides in the graveyard where reportedly “human bones were raining  down” on to the cottages and gardens below. A very sad scene for such a historic and beautifully situated Church. Link to the story on the BBC below.

Part three of photos from The Bram Stoker International Film Festival Fashion Show held in Whitby, North Yorkshire, UK.

This is our third model; the scumptious Evie Wolfe wearing a shocking pink bird fascinator and matching beautiful corset and skirt. I designed the hat to contrast with her blue hair!  I wanted to keep the collection themed by Gaslight romance and Victorian horror.

We had a fun weekend, with great friends, excellent entertainment in the wonderful town of Whitby and finished it off Sunday at midnight watching the 1992 Dracula film directed and produced by Francis Ford Coppola, based on Bram Stoker’s novel.

Whitby is a seaside town and port situated on the east coast of Yorkshire, England. Once a year it holds the film Festival and twice a year the Gothic music weekends in April and then at Halloween.

Whitby is the home to the ruins of Whitby Abbey, has a history of fishing and whaling, was where Captain Cook learned seamanship, the steam railway arrived in 1839, jet and alum were mined locally with Whitby jet being sort after and fashionable by the Victorians and is associated with the horror novel Dracula writen by Bram Stoker.  Dracula leaves his castle and boards a Russian ship, the Demeter, taking along with him boxes of Transylvanian soil, which he needs in order to regain his strength. During the voyage to Whitby, he sustains himself on the ship’s crew members. Only one body is later found, that of the captain, who is found tied up to the ship’s helm. The captain’s log is recovered and tells of strange events that had taken place during the ship’s journey. Dracula leaves the ship in the form of a dog.

These are the first few photos – more to follow ……

I have a stall at Whitby Gothic Weekend this weekend.

Whitby is a seaside town in North Yorkshire, England.  It has a combined maritime, mineral and tourist heritage, and is home to the ruins of  Whitby Abbey.  The fishing port developed herring and whaling fleets and was where Captain Cook learned seamanship. Tourism started in Whitby in Georgian times and developed with the coming of the Steam railway in 1839 and the Steam railway is still there today. Well known for its association with the horror novel Dracula by Bram Stoker, its Jet and alum were mined locally, and Whitby jet, which was mined by the Victorians became fashionable during the 19th century.

Goths meet here twice a year, April and October to socialize, enjoy the cobbled streets of the fishing town , cafes, pubs and shop in the brilliant selection of Goth and Steampunk stalls available over these weekends.

Whitby Abbey ruins and beautiful coast view.

found antler fascinator

A friend of mine works in forestry and found these antlers in his woods. I have painted them purple and silver and mounted them on a purple colour fascinator. This item, spats, hats and jewellery I will have on my stall at Whitby, the Spa Theater 26th – 29th April.
