Dark Victorian...Rockabilly.

It's difficult to figure out a way to work my love for 40s - 60s vintage into my avatar's Victorian gothic carnie persona. I love the designs from /artilleri/ and Ingenue (I blame Abigale Raymaker for introducing me to these designs with her 50s party), and am working hard to give rockabilly a vaguely Victorian feel.

Luckily, hyasynth made the incredibly cinematic Fossarius suit. I'm only wearing the tails here, but the rest of the outfit (including hair by Calico and a shovel) would be at home in the dankest of oubliettes. I used to be shy about how often I am going to wear ~silentsparrow~ in these posts, and then I realized something. Nobody else is blogging these clothes! This must be remedied, and (as the official fangirl) I'm clearly the one to do it. *clears throat*

Did I mention that Jackal's black leather ankle boots are so cute that I could eat them with a side of wasabi? Yep. And do I sound random? Yep. It's because I've spent the last few days in severe sleep deprivation to get ready for this weekend's conference in NYC...yay RL.

At any rate. Here's the avatar as queen of the 1880s rockabilly Scene.
