Account Suspended [Mar. 2nd, 2009|07:07 pm]

Does anyone else get an error page saying "Account Temporarily Suspended" when they try to access A&L? Is it just me, or is there something going wrong?

Bavarian Born Gothics [Oct. 3rd, 2008|12:44 pm]

So, there was this company event at Munich's Oktoberfest...and we were asked to wear Bavarian national costumes aka "Dirndl". Quite naturally, my closet does not hold one of these, for I never attend the "Wies'n" under normal circumstances. And since my full-time job did not give me the time to sew a Dirndl from scratch, I got one dirt-cheap off ebay and modified it.
from boring store-bought Dirndl to my unique, Gothy versionCollapse )

Corp Goth's work attire [Aug. 31st, 2008|09:59 pm]

[Current Music |Derniére Volontè ~ Au Travers Des Lauriers]

I've changed careers once more and went from fashion industry and their laid-back attitude regarding my looks to an office job as a recruiter. Quite needless to say that I had next to zero to wear. My new company is business casual and I can still get away with lace, velvet and floor-length skirts, but it's always fun to create and experiment with new styles, isn't it?
So, I won't bore you any further but introduce you to the items I've made so far behind the cut:Collapse )

flaming bassinet [Jul. 8th, 2008|11:48 am]

My distaste for baby pastels prompted me to revamp this bassinet. Collapse )
It has now filled up with a baby girl.

*waves* [Apr. 17th, 2008|03:05 pm]

Helloooo, everyone!

I'm a long time lurker on the A&L website, forums (though I've never joined...) and now here! So I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm from Australia. I love to write, sew skirts and corsets (expensive but worth it!). So yeah. I just thought I'd pop in to introduce myself. I'll hope to start posting some of my sewing and DIY projects soon!

Liverpool New Rock? [Oct. 4th, 2007|03:10 pm]

I don't know if this is the right place for this question but ive tried everywhere and i figure someone here would know.

I'm looking for a pair of new rock boots Reactors with out the inside zip but with the velcro straps. I'm looking for a pair in the UK, who are either willing to ship them to me (I'm in Canada) or to Liverpool so than my Nan can bring them with her when she comes to visit or I'm looking for someone who's got an old pair (but still in good condition) who's willing to sell them to me.

I'm sorry that was so long!

Question on patterns [Oct. 1st, 2007|07:41 pm]

Can anyone recommend pattern drafting and altering starting points? I am a newbie designer, and I really want to know how to create my own patterns and not just wing it and trial and error a million times like I am now. Any advice?

My first fetish industrial outfit with an institutional style [Oct. 1st, 2007|07:35 pm]

This was one of my first cyber-esque projects and it took a week of obsessive sewing to complete on time to attend a fetish club event. Vinyl has become my new obstacle, its quite the stubborn fabric to work with!! Anyone recommend any good places to purchase a teflon presser foot?

Petition to include subcultural identity in hate crime law [Sep. 28th, 2007|10:31 pm]

On the 11th of august, Sophie Lancaster and her boyfriend Robert Maltby were set upon by a group of youths and beaten to within an inch of their lives, simply because they were goths. Sophie later died in hospital.

There is a wikipedia article on Sophie here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophie_Lancaster

A petition has now been set up to have the definition of a hate crime changed to include crimes where someone is targetted because of their appearance or subcultural identity.

Even if you don't identify with a subculture, please sign this petition and help to send out the message that this kind of targetted violence is absolutely unacceptable.

Here's the link: http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/goth-hatecrimes
