Hello there and welcome. It’s a pleasure having you here.
My little world is not little at all. I have a lot of interests, and here are a few of them.
I am exploring right know my dark side. It’s been always there, although I was not really paying attention to it. My family was never supportive in that matter, and I kept it hidden and only to myself. After a long absence from the Goth world, I am returning now to it, and I am having a great time. I love the Victorian Neo-Romantic look, and my wardrobe is growing slowly with beautiful pieces, either purchased or made by myself. I have now my own home, and I am enjoying decorating it as an extension of my Gothic personality. I am discovering great music, and reading again classic books such as Poe or Stoker’s novels (and some new books, like What is Goth). I like to spend some time getting dressed, and I have been surprised when people complimented my outfits or my accessories. It’s wonderful being yourself and expressing yourself without having to worry about what would your neighbor (or your mother) will think of you. I have discovered a whole new world out there full of possibilities.
In my home country, you can’t really express yourself in a Gothic manner without having to deal with a lot of narrow-minded people. I have only seen there the Punk or the Cybergoth look, and people have a lot of stereotypes in their mind. You simply can’t dress like that and be a nice person. If I would go walking by the street in a Victorian ensemble in my city, people would think only 2 things: that I’m going to a costume party or that I’m just nuts; or worse yet, as I walk by their side, they will turn their head, give me a looong look and begin to walk faster, just in case I am going to threat them. Nobody would think I could love dark poetry, romantic writers, or classic horror movies to dress like that. Nobody would think I am not following the fashion industry and being myself. It’s funny how your perspective of your home country can change when you live elsewhere.
I love Tim Burton, Danny Elfmann, Poe, Becquer and almost anything related to vampires, among many other things.
I also happen to be a belly dancer. I came to the dance world as an exercise form, but I fell in love with it. I have spent now 3 years learning to belly dance with different teachers, and I have learnt a lot with them. It’s not only a question of dancing; it’s about being confident about yourself, about finding a way to express your emotions. I have tried the classical Egyptian, the American Cabaret and the American Tribal styles. My thoughts and taste are now sending me to Gothic Belly Dance (it couldn’t be different in this time of my life).
Right now I am very into crafts. I have been making Gothic accessories to decorate my home, and I love the time I spend doing it. I also love when the project is finished, because that means I can begin a new one. It's addictive!
I am also learning to sew.
There are more things, if you want to explore them in some of the other places in my profile.
Maybe you share some of my interests. If it’s so, please send me a note, and let me know a little about yourself. If not, I wish you peace and happiness.
I thank you for being here and hope to see you around.
