RinRin Doll

A really wonderful interview that RinRin Doll did in Pittsburgh.

It's awesome to see someone who is a big name in Lolita finally speaking out against cyber bullying.
Also her hat is kinda awesome.

Black rain floods the downs, the black rain, black rain

Birthday earworms
Fun Fact: I didn't realise it was Gwendoline Christie in the video for Damaris until last year.

*Needs Stockings*

This is not me wearing them of course
This year's visit from the Birthday Beagle has brought a lovely new suspender belt from What Katie Did.
It seems very nicely made, and fits like a glove, I'm very much looking forward to wearing it, as the last thing I had with suspenders had crappy plastic ones that wouldn't hold properly.
Now I just need stockings!

Pathe Newsreels

Today a selection of Pathe Newsreels I found on their youtube channel dealing with corsets and underwear.
This one from the 50's entitled "Grandma's Corsets" is a very interesting look at how underwear progressed from corsets to strapless bras and then to the "corslet" (or corset lite).

Corsets through the Ages, doesn't have any sound, but it's still a very interesting glimpse into how much underwear changed over the first half of the 20th Century. The audience reactions in this one are particularly fun, lots of disgruntled wives less than amused at their husbands ogling women in their knickers!

'secret Lady' Girdle (1960), is also unfortunately silent although very interesting, it features a Victorian themed burlesque act (who actually kind of reminds me a lot of Immodesty Blaise the way she moves), and a couple of the corsets featured look a lot like they could be from the Symmington Collection, although this video did get a scream of terror from me due to the bad lacing technique... Please people, don't lace yourselves or your friends up like that, it's a very good way to injure someone.

Well Played Ghost Of Steve Jobs

So I left the house for the first time in a week today due to being ill with uvulitis
Shuffle decided this was the perfect song to listen to o.0

3. Your favourite plant

How could I pick anything other than my broad bean plant that I'm growing on my balcony?
