GOTH COOKING SHOW GIVEAWAY WEEK! WIN AROMALEIGH MAKEUP AND GLOOMTH GOTHIC LOLITA CLOTHING.


Goth cooking show, Japanese crazy TV show. La Carmina Gothic Lolita videos, YouTube channel with food and recipe demos.

What better way to cure the Monday blues… than with a new VIDEO feature and grand Gothic prize giveaway? ^__^

One of the most frequent requests I receive is to put up more videos on my YouTube channel. Fabulous news – I got a proper digital camcorder, and I’m launching a Goth Cooking Show… inspired by Death Note! Introducing DEATH COOKBOOK, a dark and absurd twist on the Food Network. In each episode, Kojin (the kawaii meets kowai Japanese kitchen god) guides me through a devilishly delicious recipe. Of course, Basil Farrow co-stars and steals the show.

I’ve posted the first episode – a Black Sesame Ice Cream recipe demo – on my YouTube channel (please subscribe!). The complete recipe and song info are in the More Info section. Hope it makes you laugh!

To celebrate La Carmina’s foray into video, I’m presenting my biggest giveaway yet. I’ve teamed up with two of my favorite Goth indie companies – Aromaleigh makeup and Gloomth handmade apparel – to give away 12 prizes. That’s hundreds of dollars worth of freebies!

    Oh my god your hair is on fire…

    http://www.gloomth.com/r15.html <- Gloomth's Vrai Noir Overcoat is quite possibly my favourite thing ever: fitted in all the right places but loose enough to wear a vest, blouse and cardigan under; light enough for spring but heavy enough for winter; finishes your most formal, most elegant aristocrat coordinate perfectly, or adds a little dazzle to your pseudo-punk homely tramp jeans; it can be the centre-piece of your outfit or blend as a neat complement; sturdy as hell but refined as fuck; flattering on both a big girl or a skinny malink; not too costume-y, whilst managing to sate the urge for OMG MOAR RACE.

    I likes it.

    I embedded your video onto my facebook. Not quite sure how to link that, but I have just added you on facebook (Cate Bailey).

    I posted the contest details in a comment under the video. I hope that counts!

    The “Coffin Coat” not only has an awesome name, but it's a structured jacket I know would fit my body type. It doesn't have extreme detail, but just enough to be classy. It's one of the items that can be used as a separate or be the finishing touch to an outfit.

  • K-Baby

    i also embedded your video on my facebook, and promoted the contest where it says comment about it before you post it.

    “Strawberry Swell” crown is very cute! I'd love to wear it out. I'd also wear it with the Candyfloss dress. I love the pink and red on it. I like the pearls on it too.

  • Thank you for the promotion! <3

  • Awesome! Thanks for the link!

  • Kirimi

    All the Gloomth products are amazing, but my favourite is the 'Crimson' Vistorian Cape. The first thing that comes to my mind is Little Red Riding Hood.
    Kawaii neeeee!!!
    And crimson of course is one of the most gothic colours in nature!!!

  • I embedded your video and posted a link to this contest on my Lolita lifestyle blog, here: http://yakaii-lollypop.blogspot.com
    And I linked it in my personal blog too: http://blog.cosplay.hu/yakaii – it won't let my do this embedd thing T_T

    My favourite Gloomth product would be the Anther Dress – the print and style is just lovely. I really like the Empire style waist, and that it has a built in petti. With it's gothic but charming look it would perfectly fit in my closet, maybe even if I don't win, I'd purchase one either way! :D

    I don't usually put on make-up but Aromaleigh's Gothic Loltia Eye Collection caught me – especially the violet ruffle, strawberry despair and plush romantic colours. :3

  • Thanks! The great thing about Aromaleigh is that the eyeshadows are very light – they give you a touch of darkness or romance without going overboard. :)

  • So kawaii!

  • Jennifer

    mmmmm sounds good. LOL love that Death Note theme.

  • Basil's not a scaredy cat… he only leapt a few feet in the air!

  • I posted a link on the Emilie Autumn fan forum, lots of Death Note fans, lots of lovers of cookery I know!

    Ahahahah! I loved this, TOTALLY awesome. I love kurogoma flavored things…I got addicted to it because of the Pocky flavor. XD

    There are a bunch of fun things I love on Gloomth — currently I've had my eye on the Amaryllis ruffled skirt, because, well…I'm a sucker for petticoats, but who isn't? It's something I'd like to wear with the vrai noir autumn coat. It doesn't look like it's very warm, though…oh well!

  • Exactly – I love the subtle application.

  • Thank you for your sweet comment! I really appreciate it.

    well I haven't tried Aromaleigh yet ( I plan to tho! ) but we do own one Gloomth piece; the Calliope top.

    http://gloomth.com/r16.html

    I love how you can change out the bows and ribbon for another color. its like having a whole new top and makes it easy to wear it with different things. btw, does spreading the word on myspace count for the other entries? I don't have a facebook anymore.

  • Dragonswyng

    I almost forgot to mention this but tix for the new DN flick are supposed to go on sale today. I'm going to the subbed night of course :-)

    I'm glad things with you and Gloomth have worked out the way they have; definitely beneficial for us all ;-)

  • K Baby

    I really like your video :D

  • Thanks, sweetie!

  • Sure, it counts as an entry. And yes, I'm so grateful for the introduction to Gloomth!

    Annnnddd my favorite Gloomth product is the “Amaryllis” Ruffled Skirt because it looks like the kind of skirt I would actually wear without jeans underneath. XD I love ruffle ruffles.

    • Thank you for your sweet comment! I really appreciate it.

  • Christina

    I'm excited – both for more videos, and for the sweepstakes.

    I don't know how to link to specific updates on Twitter, but I posted a link to your video AND a link to this post on mine, which is here: http://twitter.com/mach6

    If you need links to the specific posts, just let me know how to do that, and I will. =)

    And I love Aromaleigh so much that I could go on and on about my favourite products even if there was no giveaway! Seriously. I love AL eyeshadows more than anything, and it's difficult to pick a favourite line, but if I really had to, I'd say I love the Pure Hues and Elemental Lustre collections the most. Pure Hues is a fantastic line of shadows, because it includes everything from bright colours like Caribe and Bluebird, to neutrals like Fox. The texture is great, and they're all really easy to blend (especially since Aromaleigh offers empty eyeshadow jars and scoops!) so you can customize your shades.

    I love Elemental Lustres because they're – by far – THE MOST unique range of shadows I've ever seen. I pretty much didn't believe an eyeshadow could be truly metallic, until I tried these. “Mutiny” is my favourite shade, because it makes my hazel eyes look particularly green and gold, but “Abyss” comes in a close second. They're beautiful dry, but when you combine Elemental Lustres with water or a shadow sealant – WOW. They're so shiny it's easy to imagine you could see your reflection in them. Great, great shadows.

  • That's perfect – thanks!

  • Amber (Calie85)

    I love Aromaleigh's eyeshadows. there are so many colors to choose from, its hard to choose favorites. I'd say my favorite color right now is Agate Pure Hue. It is such an interesting irredesent green color that I can use with alot of other colors. And i really like twilight powder in dazzle. It has alot of sparkles in it that goes great over eyeshadows or over your face to give you alot of sparkles.

    Not exactly sure how to post the exact post on my facebook, but you might be able to sort through it on my profile: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=logo#/prof

    Also, I LOVE the show. It gives it an anime twist, and it's very informative. For me, it almost seemed a bit faster than you'd see on a normal cooking show, but the written instructions on the side as well as you speaking them help out greatly! I think I'm going to try this eventually xD

    Favorite Gloomth Item: “Vrai Noir” Corset Overcoat with Bell Sleeves & Lace Accents – if I wasn't extremely poor at this point in my life (I only get about $6.55/hr working at JoAnns @_@), I would probably pick this top. 1.) Belled sleeves are my absolute favorite kind, or anything that is renaissance-esque. The long sleeves just seem to entrance me. Also, looking at the model, the dress/coat/shirt/etc seems to look very elegant, so it isn't exactly too out there and could be worn for special occasions, or even casual. (Even though I'm 18, mom still wont let me run around in Lolita; thank you city for not seeming to like 'outrageous' styles. She thinks it would be bad to wear it out in public =/)

    Aromaleigh: It took awhile of looking, but I would probably say in the Gothic Lolita Collection (http://www.aromaleigh.com/negoloeyeco.html) I like the colors Elegant Reverie, Morbid Curiosity or, Verdant Wisp. I like deeper colors because for some reason, bright “OMG LOOK AT MEEEE” colors just freak me out ): At least, on my person. On other people it looks good, but it just doesn't seem to fit for me. Haha. I'm not much of a make-up person, but I do dabble with eyeshadow.

  • Awesome – thanks for the feedback on the cooking show! I'm testing out the anime/information format, and it seems to work – so I'll keep at it!

  • Hihi La Carmina!

    I have posted your contest on the sidebar of my blog! (http://deadevillizard.blogspot.com)

    and

    my fav item from gloomth is …
    http://www.gloomth.com/r31.html

    the school girl top.. WHY? it's simple really it's the most under rated piece of lolita apparel! the top is prefect on its own, and under all kinds of jumpers and corsets, these shirts make the best for so many outfits, and really make the difference i find, if your wearing lolita, or “goth” . i would defiantly make it a recommendation to have at least 3 of these type tops in ones closet!

    Hi Carmina! I've just sent you an invitation to a spanish social network called Tuenti (http://www.tuenti.com), I'm Sara Montesdeoca Romero. You can find the information of the contest and the YouTube video in my profile blog ^^!!!

    I don't know aboute the Aromaleigh brand (thanks for the discovery!) and I like it, especially the Gothic Lolita eye collection, the Purple Princess and Velvet Dreams are just perfect colors! The collection have all the shades for all lolita looks.

    My favourite Gloomth item would be the Vrai Noir autumn coat (http://www.gloomth.com/r15.html). I love the big sleeves with black lace and It's a perfect combination of classical Gothic Lolita and a occidental goth apparel.

    Hey~ Does deviantart count? It's the only website that I'm registered on that's like a social network.
    I posted a journal anyway. ^^;
    http://deathbutterfly.deviantart.com/journal/23

    Anyway, my favorite gloomth article of clothing is the Amaryllis skirt. I love that kind of fabric, and I love frilly black skirts. It's similar to something I want to make myself.
    And, I love pretty much all of aromaleigh's makeup. But, my favorite is their Botanical Lipstick in “crush” because it's the perfect red for me. It's not too bright, and it looks so nice. Plus, all their lipsticks are so mosturizing, I never have a problem with chapped lips anymore after buying some. Their matte eyeshadow in umber is also awsome. It makes the perfect dark brown eyeshadow.

  • Lhene

    I posted on the contest and your lovely new cooking show her –> http://www.facebook.com/note.php?created&&sugge
    By the way, I jumped when Koji popped out. He's so adorable!! Almost as much as Basil ;)

    My favourite Gloomth product is the “Vrai Noir” Autumn Overcoat. I love the silhouette – ribbon corsets always get me. And the way that the back forms a sort of skirt shape is eyecatching and just Lolita enough. The option of bows or chains is a nice opportunity to adjust it to one's style. I'd pick the chain back, personally. Ohhh, it's just so pretty, period. I'd wear it everyday if I could ^^

  • Sure, that counts!
    I haven't tried that lipstick – I should look into it.

  • Basil says nobody comes close to being as adorable as him! :P

  • I subscribed to your channel, embedded the video on my Facebook. I also gave info about the contest at: http://www.loveandmore.wordpress.com.

    I LOVE Aromaleigh products. My favorite is the eyeshadow pigments and not one particular collection because I have a bit of each one. A train case full! I never wore eyeshadow very often until I found Aromaleigh. Now, I don't go a day without wearing it. Kristen Leigh Bell is a genius when it comes to creating wonderful colors and texture of pigments for us to play with.

  • Wonderful – thank you!

    and

    my fav item from gloomth is …
    http://www.gloomth.com/r31.html

    the school girl top.. WHY? it’s simple really it’s the most under rated piece of lolita apparel! the top is prefect on its own, and under all kinds of jumpers and corsets, these shirts make the best for so many outfits, and really make the difference i find, if your wearing lolita, or “goth” . i would defiantly make it a recommendation to have at least 3 of these type tops in ones closet!

    Hi Carmina! I’ve just sent you an invitation to a spanish social network called Tuenti (www.tuenti.com), I’m Sara Montesdeoca Romero. You can find the information of the contest and the YouTube video in my profile blog ^^!!!

    I don’t know aboute the Aromaleigh brand (thanks for the discovery!) and I like it, especially the Gothic Lolita eye collection, the Purple Princess and Velvet Dreams are just perfect colors! The collection have all the shades for all lolita looks.

    My favourite Gloomth item would be the Vrai Noir autumn coat (http://www.gloomth.com/r15.html). I love the big sleeves with black lace and It’s a perfect combination of classical Gothic Lolita and a occidental goth apparel.

    Dark Kisses

    • I’m glad you discovered the makeup brand! Highly recommended.

  • Deathbutterfly

    Hey~ Does deviantart count? It’s the only website that I’m registered on that’s like a social network.
    I posted a journal anyway. ^^;
    http://deathbutterfly.deviantart.com/journal/23851676/

    Anyway, my favorite gloomth article of clothing is the Amaryllis skirt. I love that kind of fabric, and I love frilly black skirts. It’s similar to something I want to make myself.
    And, I love pretty much all of aromaleigh’s makeup. But, my favorite is their Botanical Lipstick in “crush” because it’s the perfect red for me. It’s not too bright, and it looks so nice. Plus, all their lipsticks are so mosturizing, I never have a problem with chapped lips anymore after buying some. Their matte eyeshadow in umber is also awsome. It makes the perfect dark brown eyeshadow.

    • Sure, that counts!
      I haven’t tried that lipstick – I should look into it.

  • Lhene

    I posted on the contest and your lovely new cooking show her –> http://www.facebook.com/note.php?created&&suggest&note_id=63363005058
    By the way, I jumped when Koji popped out. He’s so adorable!! Almost as much as Basil ;)

    My favourite Gloomth product is the “Vrai Noir” Autumn Overcoat. I love the silhouette – ribbon corsets always get me. And the way that the back forms a sort of skirt shape is eyecatching and just Lolita enough. The option of bows or chains is a nice opportunity to adjust it to one’s style. I’d pick the chain back, personally. Ohhh, it’s just so pretty, period. I’d wear it everyday if I could ^^

    • Basil says nobody comes close to being as adorable as him! :P

      • Lhene

        Of course. Cats are the cutest things on God’s Green Earth :D

    First of all, love the new video! Can’t wait to see more of Death Cookbook ^_^
    I have tweeted about your new video on my Twitter
    http://twitter.com/AliceGrimm
    And my favorite (it was hard to choose) Gloomth product is, “Vrai Noir” (Corset Overcoat with Bell Sleeves & Lace Accents). I am in love with this coat! It’s just so adorable and can be mixed into the different styles, like Lolita and Aristocrat. Certainly my new goal purchase ^^ I’m also in love with Gloomth. I was so excited when I learned that they were Canadian ^_^

    Thanks so much for your time, for all the awesome blogging, and the lovely contests :)
    Take care and God bless!

    Hi. I'm Dom Trott-Batipps, and here's the link I posted for your video and promotion of this contest under Notes. My favorite Gloomth clothing item is the Vrai Noir because of its unique design that at first glance it would pass as a cute lolita dress.

  • Carine Saurus

    http://carinesaurus.livejournal.com/796.html I put them first two up in my livejournal, I hope that counts.

    my favorite is the Gunmetal Sulphide dress, the cut would easily fit my short body and the material and color looks so delectable that it makes me want to wear it with a pair of sturdy boots and go zombie bashing.

  • Perfect – thanks! I love the names of their dresses.

    This is so great! Please make many more episodes :)
    My favorite Aromaleigh product is Metamorphosis finishing powder from the You're a Doll! Gothic Lolita line. It has a slightly greenish tint with minute sparkles which evens out my skin tone and makes my face luminous. Perfect for when you want to look like a porcelain doll :P

  • HimeJade

    Hey La Carmina :)
    I posted a note on my facebook promoting your video, and blog. Here's the link:
    http://www.facebook.com/note.php?saved&&suggest

    Okay, and my favorite Gloomth product is the Calliope Magic Loli Top, because I absolutely love the lace detail on the shoulder straps, and how it has the option to change the ribbons on it. I also really like the satin fabric its made out of because it looks soft and shiny ^-^

  • So that video was pretty much GENIUS. That kitchen god has very good taste in addition to being cutely ominous. Will Basil be cooking next?

    Embedded to and linked to facebook. I don't know how to link it, but you could find it under “Arden Rubicon”. i'm public.

    And as for Gloomth… I don't know if I have a favourite. I love almost all of her clothes, especially the versatility of her designs. super cute loli to classic goth, one piece can do so much and still stay so classy and beautiful.

    For Aromaleigh, I haven't bought anything yet but have always lusted over the Rocks! Sonic kits for the super bright eye colours they carry. Even if your clothes are dark, eyes that really pop can make the whole outfit

  • Knowing Basil, he'll make me do all the cooking and won't lift a paw! ;)

    Thanks for the entry!

  • I had so much fun making the video that I'll be sure to make more!

  • Shermaine

    My favourite of the Gloomth products would have to be the Shadow Stripe jacket.
    The lace looks gorgeous, and I have this strange love of stripes.

    As Aromaleigh, It's either Rosebud or Crush from their Botanical Lipsticks, I love those shades of pink and red.

    ^^ Thanks for making this video. There's never too much Death Note in the world.
    =O I wonder what Carmina would look like as a hungry ghost.

  • Hey, Camina. Promoted your contest and embeded your video here!! http://kagitsune.livejournal.com/4700.html That makes 3 entries for me…

    As for Gloomth, their men's line actually caught my eye the most! ^o^/ My Prince and I agree that the “Darkness” poet shirt would really suit him. He's very tall and slender, and I think that the black and the elegant pleats in the bodice and sleeves would both accent and flatter his regal figure. ^^

  • Reenie

    Aw, your video is so cute. I love all the little bowls you used. But, down to business!

    My favorite Gloomth/Aromaleigh product is the “Amaryllis” skirt. I love how bouncy and full it is since it has the built in petti. I think that the ruffles are just the right size and the white eyelet trim is the perfect detail to help give contrast and detail to the skirt.

  • Nadine

    My favorite Aromaleigh product is Nocturne because it soothes my skin and evens out my blotchinss for no-makeup days!

  • Celine

    I think Aromaleigh's Ultra Resolution Finishing Powder is genius because it's tinted and provides the tiniest bit of flattering glow. It's such an improvement over other untinted silica finishing powders on the market!

    I've been reading your blog for a while now and this video just pushed me to comment, I have to say the funniest thing i've ever seen and educational at the same time since I utterly fail at cooking I found it quite helpful and loved the death not reference. I hope to see more soon .

    I posted the video and contest promo on my live journal : http://kazenotama.livejournal.com/

    my favorite piece of clothing would have to be the vrai noir overcoat. http://www.gloomth.com/r15.html
    I fell in love with it at first sight! its simply gorgeous, I love the gothic lolita and aristocratic element to it, even though its a solid black color the metallic accents make it pop and give it that edge that I like so much it reminds me alot of a design from alice and the pirates, with out the crazy price tag which I adore. It also seems really functional. I live in a really cold region so I would need a fairly warm coat and it looks like it'd warm.

  • Ahh that makes me happy! I've been tooling around with some conventional cooking show formats (for traditional media outlets), and it just wasn't me. So I decided, what the heck – I'll make my own thing and see how it goes. :)

    Aromaleigh…well deciding on one favorite is really tough, so I guess I'll tell you one product I absolutely cannot live without!

    The Silk Powder primer is without a doubt a must have product. Year round, I have an obnoxiously oily T-Zone and the summer time is brutal just trying to keep my makeup on my face and set.. The Silk Powder, (which, by the way, is on sale for a great deal until 3/25/09), it not only absorbs UV rays to protect my skin, but most importantly to me, it makes my crazy huge pores look almost invisible.

    I came across Aromaleigh while looking for a less expensive & equal or higher quality alternative to a name brand I won't mention here. I have been a customer for at least 5 years now and the service is fast, the product is super quality, and what I enjoy the most is the the range of colors offered, from basic to gothic and everything in between, and with use, realizing that they actually were very chic looking when I needed them to be downplayed for conservative corporate environments, and then I can play them up all the way to theatrical. The ability to purchase samples is wonderful so I don't waste money on colors that just don't work for me and often, I am surprised to find colors I never expected to work, look gorgeous on me.

    I'll post again about a few other products that one must try, but I'll close by stating that, in the interest of full disclosure, I have no financial interest in Aromaleigh, I do not know the staff personally, it's simply that I am a very happy long-term customer.

    Ok, I promised a review of other Aromaleigh products. A few months ago I decided to once again trust the thorough color descriptions and buy the three rouges in the Gothic Lolita collection ( http://www.aromaleigh.com/yodopuroinc.html ).

    The Rococo rouge is described as a “gorgeous neutral shade that will give your cheeks a naturally flushed appearance akin to that famed “O”… Just gorgeous on everyone!~~” (quoted directly from http://www.Aromaleigh.com). While reading reviews when deciding whether to purchase them, I recall that one person commented something to the effect that when she wears Rococo, it appears that she has just come from having a “rendezvous” with her husband. That convinced me; I added minijars of each to try to my already huge order and eagerly awaited its arrival.

    Aromaleigh's Gothic Lolita Rococo rouge is all that it claims to be and more. It is my second “can't live without it” Aromaleigh product. You must try it!

    Kojin is actually the name of the Japanese kitchen god in Shinto folklore… I don't think he originally looked like a yellow kawaii bear though!

    My favourite Gloomth product is the Victoria's Doll shrug. I love the colour and the puffed sleeves, and the little details like the ruffle-lined collar are just too cute. The cut is so flattering, so anyone can just throw it over another top and make their outfit look fab. so cuteeee…..

    Gloomth's Vrai Noir Overcoat is my favorite item. Its also the first Gloomth product I ever bought! It's beautiful and fits perfectly.

    I wrote about the contest on my myspace as well as posted the video there. Not sure how to link but here is my myspace. http://www.myspace.com/spork_the_cat

    I'm a long time lurker and first time poster. I actually stumbled across your website from Jimmi's website (of which I am also a lurker) and I stumbled acorss his from Jrocknyc (the connections of blogsphere is mind-boggling)!

    I embedded your video on my facebook (http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/home…) If that doesn't work my name is Katrina Qin (Melbourne -just in case there are others with my name). I also promoted the competition in the same message.

    Now about my fave aromaleigh product! I was introduced to aromaleigh by your blog! A few months ago when you wore the eye shadows, I was using Bare Essentials at the time but it smelt funny and I was looking for better alternatives. Great recommendation! I am still rather new to it but my fave so far has to be the silk powder. It makes diminishes my pores and gives an even tone to my complexion, on a day when I wake up with perfect skin (once in a blue moon but it does happen!) I just use that and it makes my skin look better!

    Anyway thank you for the product recs and for this comp!

    • The blog-o-sphere is a small and intimate place! That’s so cool – Jimi and I seem to share a lot of the same readers. He’ll be in both my upcoming books… so you can look out for those in July and Nov!

      Thanks so much for entering. ^__^

    • Cute blog – I love Depeche Mode!

  • Hi, I posted a link to your video and to the contest on my facebook account (just added you as a friend, I'll leave you a message once you've accepted the add).
    As for my favourite Aromaleigh item…I can't really tell, I haven't bought from them yet, but I've been curious about this brand of make-up ever since your post, so I probably will buy some samples in the near future. The Gothic Lolita Collection strikes my fancy with all those cute names and pretty colours. I want to try the rococo doll look!

    I like the precious misery blouse.

    It is stylish and can easily fit in at the workplace and in a more casual situation.

  • The Rococo Doll – yess!
    Thanks for the entry. :)

  • I love Gloomth mostly because its got a simple pretty style, and even though limited, it offers some really pretty styles in Plus Sizes, which is exceptionally unusual. My favorite piece is the “Wicked Thursday” shirt, mostly because it reminds me of a twist on something Wednesday Addams would wear, and it actually has lovely tailored lines.

    I gave a link to the video and talked about the contest in my imvu blog:

    and I embeded the video on my profile:
    http://avatars.imvu.com/CrazySushiPerson

    Dx choosing my favorite item was WAAAYYY too hard! I love Gloomth. I've been stalking the site for months =P just never really had the money to buy something… haha now I feel like I'm giving you guys a sob story ._. ok forget I said that… Dx
    hmm.. so I was able to narrow it down to my top 4… =P and I can't get it to be any lower…

    I love Amaryllis Tiered Skirt because it's so pretty! =D I love all the layers and it has a petticoat that makes it poofy and awesome! I also love the Anther Dress because the shape is so simple (no crazy sleeves or stuff) and it also has a petticoat. hmm another item I really like is the Dire Corset Over-Skirt because it makes outfits look 100x cooler. Lastly, I love the Violet Noir Overcoat because it's so… awesome =P It looks really cool over dresses and prob over pants too.

    Did I write too much? Dx

    Its incredibly hard to pick a favorite but, I absolutely love, love, love, the Damask Dress with Built In Petticoat & Matching Accessories, from Gloomth! It is perfect for spring picnics with the ladies!
    I also have a soft spot for the Lolita sweet heart kit from Aromaleigh. It has luxurious eye colors and It makes the perfect gift to show your lady friends you think of them. (I bought one for both of my best friends.)
