Last week I saw Wednesday 13 in Brisbane. IT WAS REALLY REALLY GREAT!
I loved it.
Anyway, this isn't about my adventures there, but what i wore there.
There is a shop in Brisbane called Underworld Realm. Lots of the 'goth' kids call it Overpriced Realm. I don't find it that expensive. Maybe if all the Crows actually got jobs they could afford things like this. Anyway.
I saw this awesome black and red tartan shirt dress. i looked at it and smiled, "I CAN MAKE THAT!" i said laughing. Then realised the lady didn't approve of me ripping off her items so I quickly moved to the next aisle where she couldn't see me. I studied the dress carefully and realised it was so simple! SO SIMPLE!.
When i got home i found some black fabric i had got from the thrift shop for $1!! Woo! and grabebd a pattern for a cow-girl style shirt. I lengthened it and made the sleeves into cap sleeves. Instead of tartan I used this pirate flanelette i had leftover from making tim pj pants. I added red nettign here and there too fior kicks.
Anyway, i had this lying around for a while as i seriously couldn't be bothered putting a zip/buttons/press-studs on it to do up the front. The day before Wednesday 13 rolled around and i realised I HAD NOTHING TO WEAR. Then i remembered the dress, pulled it out, stitched velcro down the front and painted MRS 13 across the back.
It was awesome I looked so hot. I got off the train at the Valley with my boys and i saw a girl staring at me as i walekd past. She said to her friend "I LIKE THAT!" and the boys did me the courtesy of looking around and confirmed she was talking about me ((because I'm too cool to look around when people talk about me.. lol)) and while in line i got heaps of compliments. I told Pig i loved him and he said he Loved me too. Lol ((pig is the lead guitarist and sang to me almost the entire concert)).
Plus they all signed the MRS 13 part so that made me super happy! I'm pretty sure the pcs do not do it justice
