Cirque Apparel Plus Size Pentagram Harness

Pentagram Harness: Cirque Apparel
Size: Plus Size
Made from elastic, I feel this harness is reasonably priced. It can be ordered custom made to your measurements and is available in silver or gold studs. I’m really happy with this purchase. It arrived really fast from the UK and it’s sewn together very well. It’s nice to see an Etsy seller taking custom size orders and using a plus size model in her photos. I will totally order from Cirque Apparel again.

Skirt: Spin Doctor
Size: 4X 
This is the Eleanor skirt by Spin Doctor Clothing. I ordered this skirt last month from Hot Topic. HT has since sold out so I have linked you to The Gothic Shop. They are the only shop I found who still had plus size in stock. I have not ordered from them before so I am sorry but I cannot provide any feedback. If anyone has ordered from the before please leave feedback in the comments below. This skirt fits the same as a Hell Bunny 4X skirt.

Bra: Lane Bryant
Size: 42G
This bra is comfy, sexy, and supportive. Lane Bryant is the only place I have found that carries bras that make my boobs happy. I have yet to have a problem with one of their bras so I stick with them.

Septum Clicker: eBay
Size: 14G/8MM
This is the first septum clicker I have purchased. It was really super hard to open, but I finally got it in. I’m not sure I will ever get it out though! It’s really tight and I might have to go have someone take it out for me. I would love some feedback on clickers so please comment below if you can help. Should they be so hard to open and close??

Lipstick: Pretty Zombie Cosmetics
Shade: 3 Witches
I’m a sucker for Pretty Zombie Cosmetics. I hope they come out with more colors soon. Love, love, love them!  

Shoes and Gloves: Value Village
Size: 10
I found my shoes at Value Village thift store, but I was able to located them online. You can find them at Fantastia Wear. They are a classic Halloween costume shoe. The gloves are standard size, long length, in stretch cotton. You should be able to pick these up at any dollar store this time of year.

Belt: FatToo Accessora
FatToo Accessora is a plus size accessories group on Facebook. You are not likely to come across this same belt, however, Asos Curve quite often carries corset belts. 

Fishnet Shirt: Walmart 
Size: 3X
I picked up this shirt 10+ years ago. It came over top of a tee that said “Rock N Roll” HA! I never throw things away because you never know when you might need them. You can find a plus size fishnet shirt on eBay for a reasonable price.

  I’m in love with this look, I feel totally sexy and beautiful. This outfit makes me want to go out to sip cherry brandy and dance to Bauhaus in a dark club. I really need to get on that!! Stina  xx

*CALL ME ON THE OUIJA BOARD*

The Ouija Board, tool of the devil, quirky family game or porthole for the non-conscious mind? 


I’m super obsessed with Ouija boards. Ever since I was a little girl spirit boards have always intrigued me. The thought of the dead being able to communicate though the board is super wickedly spooky and awesome. About a year ago I started to create Ouija jewelry just because I loved the board so much. All of the jewelry I’m wearing was created by me. You can find it at Everyday is like Halloween. I peeped this spooky skirt on Etsy a few months back and I knew I had to have it. The skirt is from a shop called Toot Sweet Skirts. The owner Linda is so rad. She creates amazing handmade vintage and novelty skirts. Items that really make you stand out in a crowd. Her skirts fit up to a size 28 waist. I do believe she also does custom so if you wanted larger I think she would be able to accommodate. I was a bit concerned about the length of the skirt, because it looked really short in the photo. As you can see it’s not short at all on me at 5'6". This skirt has a gold ribbon at the waist and had I wore it high with a shirt tucked in I would have shown it. I decided to go with a longer shirt I picked up at Eshakti. I opted to have the embroidered hearts removed when I ordered this piece. The shirt was ordered with custom measurements. That is one of the things I enjoy about Eshakti. Any of their items can be tailored to your measurements for a fee of $7. 

As you can see I’m still big time into hats and gloves. I picked both of these up on Ebay for cheap. The gloves seem to be sold out so I can’t post a link. However, there are tons and tons of inexpensive stylish gloves on ebay. I love looking around.  Lastly I would like to talk lipstick. I’m so thrilled that bold, punky and goth colors have come back. As of late I have been experimenting with liquid lipsticks, stains and tars. I have found a gnarly company called Pretty Zombie Cosmetics. For this blog I’m wearing their liquid in Black Cat. If you are into the long last matte liquid lipsticks PZC has some wicked products. Their price point is sweet at $11 a stick.

I have found the pretty zombie products sell out super fast. If you see a color you want snatch it up quick.

I just ordered myself a blue that I’m super pumped to try. Blue lips aren’t only for the walking dead.

I love putting together unique and interesting looks for my blog. If there’s a brand you’re interested in learning more about, let me know in the comments. If you know of any plus size brands that carry items you think I will dig, also feel free to drop me a note. I’m always looking for new brands to try. 

Thanks

Domino Dollhouse Skull Chiffon Dress

Dress: Domino Dollhouse Size 26  This summer dress has all of the charm of a sundress, but with a twist!  The chiffon over-fabric is black with small, ivory skulls all over it!  The bustline and hem feature a cute ruffle, made of black chiffon.  The straps are adjustable, it has a back zipper, and there is a tie-back feature for a great fit! I cannot tell a lie, I actually have owned this dress for two years. It’s a Tripp brand dress that was previously available though Torrid. I was over the moon to see Domino Dollhouse was now carrying it. This piece is totally adorable and I get a bunch of compliments when I wear it. I’m considering buying another as a back up. This dress is still available in many sizes on the DD site. I would totally grab it up fast because it won’t last. Want an extra 10% off?? Tess Munster always has a coupon code on her page. WOOT! Shoes: ASOS Size US 10 I totally love these cute Molly T-bar flat shoes.I ordered them in my normal size 10. They are not a wide shoe. In fact, they actually narrow towards the toe. I have a foot that is not overly narrow and not overly wide. I guess I would say kind of in the middle. As adorable as these shoes are I only wear them when I know I will not be doing a lot of walking. I wore them on this occasion on a 20 minute walk to and from the library and my feet were done. Purse: 66 Umbrella  This piece was custom made for me by the lovely Bri of 66 Umbrella. Bri is active on IG and is always posing new fantastic gothy spooky bags. I picked a few of the fabrics she had posted and she designed this one up for me. Check out her stuff and find a perfect creepy bag for Halloween!!! Necklace: EILH I created this Edward Gorey “The Gashlycrumb Tinies” Necklace for my Etsy shop. I think Gorey is super rad and I love the Gashlycrumb book.

Hell Bunny Rock On Dress in Plus

Hell Bunny Rock On Dress in Size 4X

Hell Bunny Petticoat in White Size XL-XXL

Custom Name Necklace Everyday is like Halloween

Can you tell I’m in love?? When I first peeped Hell Bunnies spring/summer catalog the Rock On dress didn’t stand out to me. My first thought was “another tattoo themed dress…meh”.  The more I looked at it the more I wanted to try it. I didn’t have any other HB dresses that were cut like the Rock On. I was curious to see if it would fit me as well as the others with the smocking on the back. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. This dress fits me like a glove. I honestly think it fits me better than any of my other HB dresses. The arm holes are not tight at all. I didn’t get the excess material sag under my arms or though the front of my chest. This seems to be a problem for me sometimes. The cut out in the back is perfect. Showing just enough skin to be sexy, but not revealing my bra band. I’m always fond of the length of these 50s style Hell Bunny dresses. I think for this design the length is lovely. I would, however, like to see Hell Bunny come out with some shorter length dresses. Most of the dresses in the plus size range are, this length. Hell bunnies normal range collection has many short dresses. I’m fat, but I don’t mind showing a little leg.  While at first glance I thought the Rock On was just another tattoo dress, but it’s really not. This print is very fun. I’m totally digging on the blue sharks though out. HB always goes above and beyond with their awesome, unique prints. Once I put this dress on I didn’t feel it was just another tattoo print dress. I felt so beautiful and sassy. Oh and it looked pretty great with my hair. If your interested in trying out a Hell Bunny dress please check out Sweet Echo Plus. Sweet Echo specializes in plus size.
