The Goth Challenge! Days 19 to 22

Day 19 - Share beauty advise and take a photo of your make up.

Oh boy, makeup! I love making new designs around my eyes! I try to be as creative as I can and find a new one everyday! Here is the most recent picture I have:

Apologies for my eyeliner being kind of faded;
This picture was taken at the end of the day...

I don't have much beauty advise but I can say that the biggest mistake one can make with makeup is not washing off the makeup before bed. To me, it feels really disgusting and I feel as if my pores are clogging with oil by the second! So please, for your skin's sake, wash off all traces of makeup before bed!

Day 20 - If you could dye your hair any colour what would it be?

Regarding the fact that I have recently dyed my hair black as I've been wanting for 6 years, I don't intend to get rid of it yet. Although, an idea came into my head not long ago: I want to get tints of purple in my black hair.

Ok, I don't want my hair to be entirely purple! I want it to be black, but it should shine with a purple glow in the light. Now, where to find that kind of stuff where I live? That's the hard part!

I looked around and found this:

L'Oréal: Deepest Plum (Source here)

It was close enough, so I decided to give it a try! This is how it turned out:

The purple only showed up on my brown roots... I took two pictures with 2 different functions on my phone to show more precisely the purple. I guess I should've expected it because I had black before but the woman at the store told me otherwise and bla bla bla... I'll try a better purple next time! :/

Day 21 - What body mod do you have or have you considered?

No, I do not have any body mods except for the simple ear piercing I got when I was little. I had a bad experience with piercing and REpiercing my ears before so I don't think I'll be getting any more soon... Although I would love some! I would like either a lip piercing or snake bites! As for tattoos, I would like to have a spiderweb in the back of my neck like Abby Sciuto from the show NCIS:

So those are my future body mod ideas! Anyone got other suggestions for first body mods?

Day 22 - If you could attend any Goth event what would it be?

So many events! But to choose only one? Probably between Wave Gotik Treffen and Whitby Gothic Weekend. First of all, WGT is probably the biggest Gothic event the world has seen to this day. It would be an honor for me to say that I've been to the biggest Gothic festival of the world! Second of all, this year, Whitby Gothic Weekend is on the weekend of my birthday! What are the odds of that?! It would truly be an amazing present, but my parents do not plan on traveling (or letting me travel alone) for a while... Darn... :/

The Goth Challenge! Day 7 - Ten of your favourite goth bands. (Late?)

Sorry everyone! I just realised that I had never posted this before and I had it saved in my drafts for months now! Apologies for this little slip, I'll make sure to check next time! Anyway, on with the Goth Challenge!

Ouch! This is going to be hard... I am still a Babybat so I don't know too many of them, but it's too hard to choose! So for all those Babybats out there, here are the Goth rock bands I started with (these are NOT in any order!) :

1. The Birthday Massacre: Being a local band, I felt quite honored to live so close to the origin city of one of my favourite Goth bands! The Birthday Massacre was born in Toronto, Ontario (Canada) and are well known worldwide today. I love the fact that a woman is the lead singer, and Chibi is so great at it! The music is heavy at times and slow at others. They sure do make a good use of that keyboard!

2. Bauhaus: Definitely the kings of Goth rock! Bauhaus always has an eerie feel to their music. Every instrument is used in harmony with the other to create a mysterious work of art!

3. The Crüxshadows: I love the fact that they stand out with their techno/electronic side of the Goth music. They are very easy to start with as a Goth band! Just look at Rogue's (lead vocals) hair!

4. Inkubus Sukkubus: I absolutely LOVE Candia's voice! Inky Suk is really a band to look at in Goth rock culture. They are still an active band with their newest release The Dark Goddess. Here is a look into this great album!

5. Switchblade Symphony: Tina Root is so adorable! I love her cute Gothic look! Their songs are both creepy and cute at the same time. See for yourself!

6. Siouxsie And The Banshees: Siouxsie is probably one the most popular Gothic female icons. When you think Goth rock history, you think Siouxsie Sioux! This band is straight out of the 70's and still has style!

7. Emilie Autumn: The queen of Goth, Emilie has her own unique style and music. Her songs speak to the soul with their deep lyrics! Most people can really relate to them!

8. Johnny Hollow: Very dark and amazing music! I completely LOVE Janine White's makeup in this next video! The song is addictive... I had it stuck in my head for two days now...

9. The Crypt Club: I love this local band from Montréal, Québec (Canada)! It is once again a band formed close to my home. Listen to these amazing people!

10. Voltaire: Dearest Aurelio Voltaire Hernández! A true artist at heart! His voice is truly amazing and his songs are masterpieces!

So these are my 10 suggested bands to the beginner Babybats! Enjoy guys!
