Red & Black Week! Some inspirations, and outfit the first

So today is the first day of Sophistique Noir's Red & Black Week; I am perhaps a little quick off the mark here as the official sign-up post hasn't arrived in Bloggerland yet, but I'm meeting a friend later so really there is no time like the present.

Firstly, today's red-and-black themed outfit, worn for a nice traditional English pub lunch today (a woman in the pub must have never seen a Goth before, she nearly fell out of her chair twisting around to rudely goggle at me *sighs*). Apologies for hastily-taken pictures; as I believe I have mentioned my camera kills batteries and I can use it for a maximum of ten minutes before it destroys even brand new batteries, so these snaps were taken against the clock...

Hairclip: £3.99, British Heart Foundation (plastic skull glued on by me, obvs)
Hair extension: £2 for two, Peacocks
Shrug: £4, charity shop
T-shirt: 50p, charity shop
Skelanimals necklace: DV8 Fest trader
Bracelet: gift, Alchemy Gothic
Skirt: £29.99, Camden market
Tights: £6, Claire's
Boots: £20, Peacocks sale
Sadly you can't see my red and black eyeshadow too well. XP

Now, to get Red & Black week started in style, I've gone through my massive folder of inspirational Gothy images found all over the web and re-discovered my favourite red-and-black pictures. You might find these inspirational with outfits for this week; or simply pretty to look at in general. Either way, I hope you enjoy them.
The red and black bride! A big thanks to Danielle, who says, "I'm glad you liked my outfit :) I got married to my lovely hubby on Oct. 13th 2006. That outfit was made for me by Gallery Serpentine ( and was awesome."

Your outfits are always so well detailed. Love it!
The pictures make me long for another gothic festival. :) I especially love how the red & black couple have matched their outfits.

Wow, I keep finding my wedding pics in the most random places. A friend pointed me here. I'm the red and black bride at the top--my name's Danielle but I go by Drachemaedchen on LJ. I'm glad you liked my outfit :) I got married to my lovely hubby on Oct. 13th 2006. That outfit was made for me by Gallery Serpentine ( and was awesome.
