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

Vodabox - Kimono Shrug & Wrap w/ leather look Trim & Polo Neck - Click Image to Close
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

Flame it

Hello all,

I never thought I would get into blogging, but having had to spend most of my life ordering all my favourite fashion item from the US, I figured it was time to become wholesomely self absorbed in a written public documentation of my rage. (I mean, do ALL metal chics really have to wear fishnet tights and D rings?)

In the process (fingers crossed), try and identify some awesome items you can get here in the UK (that aren't the usual band shirt or lace skater dress), or order online overseas, and maybe even spark a mini metal fashion revolution. Hmmmm

So here goes:

Prada's super awesome flame shoes alone should be a reason to get us ladies out of the horrible, stubby Demonias that make feet look like large clumps of black glutinous rice. 

Somewhat ironically, these shoes have all been given a big fat X by most fashion bloggers, thus making them even more metal-worthy.

Unfortunately, they are around £500 a pair (and not yet available in the UK), so we are yet again stuck with hooker/pole shoes albeit at a much better value. So here are some of the better ones...

Bordello Rhinestone Flame Shoes
Bordello's Teeze flame rhinestone shoes. Available for £81.99 at Kate's Clothing: http://www.katesclothing.co.uk/Bordello-Rhinestone-Flame-Shoes-p/TEE27-BR.htm&click=5205
