My self-summary
Romantic/Trad Goth with an interest in Japanese Street Fashion, dressing up, Deathrock, The 80s, Rockabilly and Vintage Style 20s/40s/50s and all things spooky-cute.

I'm ambitious, creative and stubborn.

I have a 1 year old rescue kitten, Elizabet "Battie" Bathory.

I'd most like to see the Northern Lights and a Mammatocumulus cloud before I die.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm the Creative Director and Head Designer for my clothing label inspired by dark fairytales, nightmares and mysterious creatures. I spend the majority of my waking hours working on some aspect of my business, be that sewing, designing or patternmaking right through to textile and website design.

In my spare time, whatever that is, I have been known to paint and draw, or take up classes in swing dancing, boxing or bellydancing, although presently, not so much. Lately, yoga.

In 2014, I had a total gastrectomy (for high-risk cancer prevention). Adjusting to my new life and diet has been tough, though it came with a silver lining that has helped me shed almost 50kg and in the process its kick started my life into living-mode as opposed to merely-existing-mode.

As a result, I am somewhat on a journey of self discovery to which I have no idea where i'll end up. I'd love to make a few close friendships, romantic or platonic. I'm not inherently looking for anything serious, though i'd be open to something more for the right person.

I'm not terribly interested in lengthy online conversations, after a little correspondence that seems to be going swell, we should meet up. I'm on here to jump-start making some connections with interesting people.

I am fond of dark comedy/nerd comedy (Black Books, Mighty Boosh, The Big Bang Theory, Bobs Burgers), Period & Fantasy Dramas (Downton Abbey, Outlander, The Tudors, BBC Pride & Prejudice, Merlin, Robin Hood), Sci-fi/Cop/Post-Apocalyptic/Horror/Medical Drama (The Walking Dead, The Last Ship, Bones, House, Orange is the New Black, Hannibal, X-files, Red Dwarf, Continuum and Doctor Who)

I enjoy anime and want to learn more about it, it's been a while since I've gotten the chance to watch some although my favourites so far include Deathnote, Princess Mononoke, Mushi-Shi, Full Metal Alchemist, Chobits, Wolfs Rain, Samurai Champloo. I still have a soft spot for Sailor Moon <3

Art Supplies
My Kitten Battie
Cuddles

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The universe, space and consciousness.
How a particular design feature on a garment would be constructed, and visualising it's flat pattern.
On a typical Friday night I am
If there is no goth club on, I'll be sewing or playing with Battie and my foster kittens (currently 3!)
You should message me if

You are effeminate.
You're creative.

You dress quite dapper, dandy, eccentric and/or enjoy dressing up.
You have muttonchops or an impressively styled moustache.
You dislike football, or it isn't a big part of your life. (Sorry, football is a big turnoff, I want nothing to do with it. You would need to be a SUPER special person for me to be able overlook it).
You are politically left-wing.

I only respond to messages from people whose profiles interest me, if you're keen on me, make your first point of contact rather intriguing and have a well written profile that you've made effort on.

I definitely don't respond to creepy messages, nor do I answer to 'Hi Sweetie, Hey Babe' or etc. Time is precious, I don't get a whole lot of free time.
