*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.ThanksStinaxx
One, this lady is ADORABLE.
Two, Ouija board skirt! ::waits for the chorus of “NO” from certain people::
If you keep doing that to your hair, it will look really disgusting and fall out because teasing causes damage. It kind of does already though. I just thought you’d like to know. In case you weren’t aware. Because I’m the only one that has eyes that can see that. I am the true owner of your hairstyle, and you’ve passed the maximum amount of gothness for that hair, Sonny Jim. It’s my duty as a Concerned Citizen to call your hair disgusting in front of all these people. My own hair being like feathers from a 1998 Friends episode in the year 2014 and the colour of a sewer rat is the true standard of vitality and health that everyone should be going for.
Yo pro tip from an actual pro deep conditioning brushing and good product will keep you in death hawk heaven we got little old ladies that have been teasing their hair since 1943 and they have glorious locks. So tease on!
You want to say Hi to the cute girl on the subway. How will she react? Fortunately, I can tell you with some certainty, because she’s already sending messages to you. Looking out the window, reading a book, working on a computer, arms folded across chest, body away from you = do not disturb. So, y’know, don’t disturb her. Really. Even to say that you like her hair, shoes, or book. A compliment is not always a reason for women to smile and say thank you. You are a threat, remember? You are Schrödinger’s Rapist. Don’t assume that whatever you have to say will win her over with charm or flattery. Believe what she’s signaling, and back off.
If you speak, and she responds in a monosyllabic way without looking at you, she’s saying, “I don’t want to be rude, but please leave me alone.” You don’t know why. It could be “Please leave me alone because I am trying to memorize Beowulf.” It could be “Please leave me alone because you are a scary, scary man with breath like a water buffalo.” It could be “Please leave me alone because I am planning my assassination of a major geopolitical figure and I will have to kill you if you are able to recognize me and blow my cover.”
On the other hand, if she is turned towards you, making eye contact, and she responds in a friendly and talkative manner when you speak to her, you are getting a green light. You can continue the conversation until you start getting signals to back off.
The fourth point: If you fail to respect what women say, you label yourself a problem.
There’s a man with whom I went out on a single date—afternoon coffee, for one hour by the clock—on July 25th. In the two days after the date, he sent me about fifteen e-mails, scolding me for non-responsiveness. I e-mailed him back, saying, “Look, this is a disproportionate response to a single date. You are making me uncomfortable. Do not contact me again.” It is now October 7th. Does he still e-mail?
Yeah. He does. About every two weeks.
This man scores higher on the threat level scale than Man with the Cockroach Tattoos. (Who, after all, is guilty of nothing more than terrifying bad taste.) You see, Mr. E-mail has made it clear that he ignores what I say when he wants something from me. Now, I don’t know if he is an actual rapist, and I sincerely hope he’s not. But he is certainly Schrödinger’s Rapist, and this particular Schrödinger’s Rapist has a probability ratio greater than one in sixty. Because a man who ignores a woman’s NO in a non-sexual setting is more likely to ignore NO in a sexual setting, as well.
So if you speak to a woman who is otherwise occupied, you’re sending a subtle message. It is that your desire to interact trumps her right to be left alone. If you pursue a conversation when she’s tried to cut it off, you send a message. It is that your desire to speak trumps her right to be left alone. And each of those messages indicates that you believe your desires are a legitimate reason to override her rights.
For women, who are watching you very closely to determine how much of a threat you are, this is an important piece of data.

HOLY FUCK THE TRUTH.
Can every one of my male followers read this? And please, before you get defensive (“I would never rape anyone!”) keep in mind, women being afraid of Shrodinger’s Rapists (oh my god i still can’t get over the encompassing brilliance of this phrase) is a conditioned, learned response from being immersed in rape culture and the evolution of sexism and sexual violence in our society from the day we’re born. And unfortunately, it’s very difficult to unlearn without the efforts of all genders to dismantle it. Which is where you come in.
It’s also just rude and disrespectful to patently ignore what someone has told you regarding their personal space, body, and time. Get a clue.
I will always reblog this. Always.
