I’m in the current issue of Gothic Beauty magazine! Major thanks to Marissa for the interview, and to my heart-stoppingly talented team who did the photography, hair, makeup and styling.

After my Mexico Day of the Dead journey, I’m addicted to sugar skulls. We paired a half-face with styling influenced by Japanese Goth and Lolita.

I’m floored with the interview. Gothic Beauty’s description: “La Carmina is a uniquely bright and shining star in the goth scene. Always sporting a style that’s spooky, cute, and sexy all at the same time, and with a group of creepy chic friends in tow, La Carmina travels the world in search of subjects that fascinate.”

I’m happy that the article honors my friends and colleagues, Naomi Rubin (First Mate of our Pirates business for TV hosting/fixing/consulting), and Yukiro the “glam-Evil-Queen.”

I’m wearing my own clothes: a Lolita dress by Innocent World, h.NAOTO ruffle boots, and a faux fur jacket from Hong Kong.

I can’t thank my team enough for their hard work (remember they also did my Alt Noir Magazine cover photoshoot?)

It took hours to airbrush and paint every last dot. My poofed hair is my own, except for the lighter purple curls in the front (those are pin-in extensions).
