Corsets, lace, pearls, music.
Unintentional cuteness, millinery skills, head full of song lyrics and foreign words.
Memento mori and the macabre.
You can call me Anna.

A Finnish milliner living in London blogging alternative fashion, beautiful headwear, macabre artwork, random things and the occasional Michael Jackson.

I also run a sideblog dedicated solely to my millinery work. You can check out the blog by clicking here.

Anonymous whispered, "i find it really pathetic how you're pretending to like things to seem cool and edgy. you're not a vampire, you're just a stereotype and you're lying to yourself. grow up."

Firstly, where did this all even come from…?

Secondly, I’m not pretending to be anything and I’m certainly not trying to be cool or edgy. I’m a lot of things but I’m definitely neither of those things.
What comes to vampires, stereotypes, and lying to myself, take a look at this. 30 seconds or so should do, though there’s a lot more that’s relevant to what you said if you bear to watch it. (Yes it’s old, of bad quality, and a little out-dated but the point still stands.) Watched it? Great. Now you know that I don’t care one bit about fitting any stereotypes. I am true to myself and that includes loving stereotypical things like cemeteries, bats, and old Tim Burton films. It has absolutely nothing to do with pretending or lying to myself.

Thirdly, I don’t send hateful messages to strangers based on assumptions and rash conclusions. Even if I did have something to say I definitely wouldn’t do it anonymously. I’m not the one who needs to grow up here.

Goth Problem: waking up in the morning looking like a member from The Cure.

Goth problem: Rubbing your eyes when you get home and suddenly becoming The Crow.

Goth problem: Both of these things can also be seen as achievements.

'Twas a long time ago, longer now than it seems, in a place that perhaps you've seen in your dreams.  For the story that you are about to be told, took place in the holiday worlds of old.  Now, you've probably wondered where holidays come from.  If you haven't, I'd say it's time you begun.
