Digit Darkes skins


Sasy from Digit Darkes was kind enough to show me a range of gothy skins she's produced recently. These are some of the unDress W9 Powder skins in the Addicted pack. They've got natural-looking lips in a variety of stains, dramatic eyes with a softly smeared look to the lashes, and the paleness that every goth girl desires. The makeups are quite fun, and to show them off I put on my best mish-mash of ~silentsparrow~ items in finely textured grays. I'm still working on how I portray things in photos, so this is what the skin looks like at noon with no face lighting (thanks to Gogo for that tip). Click the photo for something larger on Flickr.

Ahh, I have a case of the nerves! I teach tomorrow, first class of the semester!

Edit: SunShine pointed out that these skins aren't very gothy -- she's right, Sasy didn't mention that they were gothic, I simply thought they were. My fault! They're neat makeups regardless.

You look wonderful , the total look is fun, and ready to take on the baddies in some aftermath type movie.
Digit did a great job on the skins, the New make ups are fab.

Why must skin creators think flesh colored (no matter how light) is Goth? Goth is white.

I'm calling the Emperor's clothes as I see em, and this ain't goth.

Sorry about that, SunShine. I don't think Sasy told me it was gothy -- I thought it was myself.

mmm....since when did goth = white skin? Sure, some people hear 'goth' and automatically think dead white skin, gobs of black eyeliner, and black mascara. But the most wonderful thing about goth is that aside from some pretty obvious exceptions, lots of things can be goth. You think those skins are goth? Then they are.

We goths attempt to avoid pointless stereotypes and prejudices...and saying non-white skin =/= goth is pretty ..limiting.
