Light summer kimono

Light summer kimono

This piece is halfway between a beach kimono and a tunic, so chosing a proper title wasn’t easy given my OCD. The fabric I used was muslin, so this piece is see-through – so I suggest wearing it over a topor a little black dress for the streets. It can be a perfect beachwear if you’d like to feel like a seawitch while others look like az overbaked ham. It also protects against sunburn depending on the fabric used. Light in the…

Rockabilly circle skirt

Rockabilly circle skirt

You most probably have wore a circle skirt in your life (even if you’re a boy!); it’s the type you’d call also princess skirt or “spinning skirt”, because it flows so nice when you turn around. Several Disney princesses, like Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, Belle from Beauty and the Beast and Anna from Frosen wore circle skirts in the movies, because it flows so gracefully. No wonder the rockabilly movement favored it – the rockabilly dance has plently of spins…

Tote bag with skeleton camea

Tote bag with skeleton camea

I recently got hold of some upholstery fabric (fabric used to cover furniture) which is perfect for creating bags. It’s stron on the right side while padded from the inside, so it provides double protection for things inside. I decided to sew tote bag since I have plently of books, files and lady stuffs I carry every day so I need a large bag; but since I started to work at an office and dress corpgth I need an elegant piece. For the…

Amy Mah and the real vampires

As a hardcore sceptic, conspiration theories, mechanism of gullibility and human stupidity has always been my favourite debate topics, but I have never written on them here for they aren’ fit in this blog’s policy. But there is always a first time, now I have found the contact point of con-theos and the dark-alternative subcultures: the case of Amy Mah.   The books Amy Mah is a thirty years old writer, who has started the business three years ago, has…

Kiss of Vampire ring

Kiss of Vampire ring

I won this ring in a lucky bag game, but unfortunately it was all pink. I wanted to customise it, make it fit more into my personal style. So I painted it black with two tiny vampire fangs, fixed it with a layer of transparent clearcoat and voila. There is no limit of the variations. You can paint spiderweb, bats or other spooky things on it; I would even wear a gradient (black-purple in particular, but your preferences may vary)…

Darkness slipped in

Darkness slipped in

I have found this storybook while browsing a thrift store (in Hungary thrift stores sell English books for some reason). I just wanted to show you the story of a cute little girl who mets the Darkness itself and they became best friends forever – this is how babybats are created. How cute is that? I just love the way it calms children afraid of the darkness and teaching acceptance of what we don’t understand at the same time. We…

But even I was surprised by the legends I found while collecting data for this article. So let’s see an exaple that even the most peaceful rural city can hold deep secrets, like ghost living in the city lake.   The old mine The wild, romantic lake is the heart of the quarter. It has so…

Fejer county morass

Fejer county morass

This article is about the Fejer county I was born and raised in, one of it’s morass in particular: the village of Szabadbattyan (I intentionally kept the easy-to-pronounce Fejer in the title, Szabadbattyan would have scared you away. It’s pronounced sa-bahd-bah-tan more or less). This village is 10 kilometres away from my hometown but has such a different and more mystical athmosphere than the city, it looks like a horror tale village straight out of a Grimm collection. I grew up in…
