Sexy Serpents

Given there hasn't been much sexy metal clothing releases this week, I thought I'd do a feature of the one thing I love most: snakes, serpents, dragons and all other things slithery.

As usual, we start with the utterly unobtainable, but almost sadly always the best (sigh).

Shoe Sculpture "gargoyle"

Dragon shoe. Unfortunately this one is a sculpture! So even if you could afford it, you can't wear it! such is the way of the world...

Steel boned Corset made with snakeskin faux leather leatherette fabric, embroidered, Swarovski crystals and feather corset

Faux snakeskin corset from the Imaginarium Emporium on Etsy
Black Feather, Studded, PVC Leatherette Cape with shoulder pads

again from the Imaginarium Emporium (I know its not serpentine but hey)...



the Ralph Lauren dragon dress


Snake dress by Iris van Herpen

lanvin
Lanvin snake print dress

To the FAR LESS exciting to the affordable. I just don't know why no one has yet bothered to make a super sexy snake print dress, that isn't with snakeskin print. Surely the buggers look better alive than dead?
Fortunately, I was able to find a few things I wouldn't mind getting my hands on.


Confuzzled snake tee by River Island. How could you not love that. Available for £16 at River Island: http://www.riverisland.com/Online/women/t-shirts--vests--sweats/vests/cream-snake-sequin-print-tank-top-617532

Weekend Frohlichs

So as is customary with all fashion blogs, here is the weekly "What I Wore on the Weekend" feature:














Swish huh? Was feeling rather metal so had to give in to a certain level of cliché. And yes, my legs were freezing all night!

So I took myself down to the nouveau chic gig of the week, being the Ghast, Necrosadistic Goat Torture, Virophage and Towers of Flesh:

GHAST / NGT / VIROPHAGE / TOWERS OF FLESH - FREE ENTRY!

All in all, was a pretty awesome gig, though sadly, having yet to move my camera from the old flat to the new abode, I couldn't take any kvlt fashion pictures (all the corpse paint and Darkthrone tees and what not).

Fingers crossed it won't be too long until another wicked gig comes up, though as far as I am aware, that would be the next Red Raven club night at the Hobgoblin, on 17 March 2012, featuring De Profundis (to play their kick ass new album), and Inconcessus Lux Lucis.

Metal-Candy

Hello all to a second post by yours truly.

I thought I'd share some of my recent awesome metal finds for the week. Some of them perhaps don't scream metal at a first glance, but will most definitely get other metal-head-heads turning.

Topping the charts for me are some of Nubia/Vodabox's new products:


Vodabox - Leather Look Tail Waistcoat - Click Image to Close

An amazing faux leather waistcoat. Available from Kinky Angel for £53.99: http://www.kinkyangel.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=332&products_id=7818

A very winter appropriate, subtle kimono (for those who are shocked by some of the PVC versions out there by lip service (see below)). Available from Kinky Angel for £65.99: http://www.kinkyangel.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=332&products_id=7817

Lip Service - Looks That Kill - Geisha Dress - Blue/Black PVC - Click Image to Close <------ When fashion turns to costume. and WAY too much PVC (I know we're metal, but we don't want to look like a bit of stainless steel!)
