Tidal waves, they rip right through me. Tears from eyes, worn cold and sad.

If you haven't already noticed, I'm giving my blog a much-needed makeover! I was inspired by the lovely Claire of (two Ls!!) and her own spacey background. I'm trying to play around with photos too- today I've got some really round ones. *u* And they're not as horrible as my last post. I promise not to post anything that grainy ever again.

[EDIT: I just deleted that post! I'm too picky about my image quality.]

International Concepts top, old dress used as skirt

And these were the shoes I wore with this outfit-I made these shoes quite a while ago! 'Just took 'em, spray painted them, and brushed on a skeletal pattern. I probably wear these the most out of all of my shoes.

There aren't many things I love about the state I live in. But I really love the weather. I mean, a tank top and skirt in the winter? Coolest thing ever. Super simple and super sweet. <3

I was born a unicorn

Geez. I really can't get enough of these skeleton tights. This would make the third outfit post in a row with those damn tights. I don't know, they just kind of go with everything I wear. That, and I really love skeletons/skulls. As an artist, pencil studies of skeletons/skulls are amazing practice- I've learned so much about anatomy.

Anyway, I can't wait until next Halloween because they're actually starting to get shredded in the back. Now I know to stock up! I might actually have to do a contest to win a pair one day.

And check out these glow-in-the-dark skeleton earrings I snagged at claire's around Halloween!

I'd also like to give a little shout-out to the lovely Lydia and George for helping me figure out how to format my blog images! I'm super grateful.

I go for a swim but I don't get wet

I really need to save up for a nice digital camera. ( +_+) I had to use my cell phone this time, so some of my main photos are a little blurry. It's weird, though. Some of the pictures turned out REALLY nice while the others turned out relatively poor. I tried to make up for it with close-ups, but I'm hoping to get a new camera soon, so I won't have to deal with that anymore.

Also~ for all of you shmancy bloggers out there, how do I get rid of the pesky size restriction on my photos? Every time I upload them, they get all small and shrinky and the details get hard to see. I'd really appreciate the help!

So blurry. ):
Sweater- christmas gift (American Eagle?), random dress worn as skirt, skeleton tights- Walmart, shoes- Converse
If you look behind me, you can see one of my cats!

Nope. I will probably never get tired of these tights.

Also~ check my lovely Descendents patch!! Greatest Christmas presents ever? I think so. I have the greatest best friend ever. *u* Now I just have to figure out where to put all of these snazzy patches...

You can get some patches like these for yourself from lavendertrap on etsy.

I don't think I've ever uploaded a picture of my red bangs yet! I did them some time in September, I think.

We'll have the time of the our lives, although we're dying inside

I'm not quite sure what you would call a post like this, but I see a lot of other bloggers call them a "mood board". So a "mood board" it will be.

This season, I'm really into old scrapbook photos and road trips and memories. Just that sort of warmth and nostalgic feeling that you get when you look at all of your old pictures. Of course, none of these are old. In fact, they were all taken within the past week. But eventually, it'll be 20 years later and these pictures will give me that warm and nostalgic feeling all over again.
My friend Eila has a scanner, so her picture turned out better.

Found him on the side of the road... Eila named him Ted.
