There was an anime convention at the university today; I was asked to speak on a panel about elegant gothic aristocrat style. It was nice to meet some new people and check out anime films and art!

I really loved the way this came together, though you can't see all the details here.

black sequin/mesh trimmed church hat from a church sale this summer.
vintage net veil.
thrifted vintage rabbit fur stole and white gloves.
silver/onyx earrings from ebay, mermaid earrings made myself.
thrifted velveteen jacket.
cynthia rowley purse swapped years ago on the wardrobe swap shop.
diagonal ruffle skirt from the empty bottle swap. (underneath that are two petticoats.)
thrifted buckled wedge boots (because i have to be at least a little bit practical).
