All things SKULLS...and why I like them...

So in a non-weird way I love skull things. Not actual skulls though I will re-assure you - but skull print on clothing, day of the dead skulls, skull jewellery, skull tattoos and so on...you get my drift...

I'm not really sure where the obsession started but whilst I studied photography and fashion at college I did a project on dark and mysterious things and looked at Gothic high end fashion. 

It was then I stumbled across Alexander McQueen and as part of my fashion course I researched his designs as well.

Gosh so that was like 7 years ago now... wow... when you put it like that not only do I feel realllly old but also that's a long time to have an obsession for!!

I also had a thing for pirates... maybe that kick started this whole thing for me...

and then 'Zombie Boy' appeared in most fashion mediums and I did some research on his history and was really interested as to why he had his tattoos etc...casually trying to not to sound like a stalker...

I then started to become more fascinated by sugar skulls and their whole meaning and I liked the concept that they decorated a morbid situation with colour and used it as a positive way for mourning. 
I started to collect trinkets and little figures that were all sugar skull related. I'm actually half way to completing a sugar skull tattoo on my back which I tried to style in a different way to the usual sugar skulls you see. I researched for 3 years before deciding on my design and getting it inked. So far I only have an outline and the most crucial is the colour however I don't want too much.

When it comes to clothing as well I have a lot of sugar skull printed items and I think it's a really fun pattern and is really pretty.

Now as you may or may not know I am a big Black Milk fan and they have released a couple of day of the dead skull related things and surprisingly I've not liked any of them. I don't wear swims or bodysuits so the ones they released just didn't appeal and for a while now I've been umming and arghing about their leggings as I'm not a fan of light colours on ma thighs! If they could release black leggings with the sugar skull print on them or down the sides I would LOVE that! However that's not going to happen anytime soon!

I wish I could sugar skull all things but that would be a little too much I think!

Anyways todays blog post is a total random one however I thought I would share something about myself that I like and do something different...

Thanks for reading...
