Goth Market Haul and Halloween Decorations


This was intended to be two separate posts, but it's almost Halloween (eeek!) and I wanted to show you everything before. I did two markets in October, so I didn't have the time to do a Halloween DIY like usual. But I did a workshop with Skullduggery Ceramics earlier this month for some Halloween all-year decorations that are finished now. Today I'd like to tell you a also bit about the markets and show you the nice stuff I found.

The first was the Goth & Punk Flea Market in Manchester, where I sold a lot of used clothes. I did't buy much, so I don't have photos. I was just a second hand skirt, some hair dye and fabric remnants. The Cabinet of Curiosities Bazaar in the Leeds Market hall was much bigger. I didn't sell well, but there was so much choice to spend my money on. I've also collected a lot of business cards and will have a look online bit by bit.

I had my eye one the spiders web box from Cabinet of Curious Creations in Manchester already, so this time I took my chance to bring it home. You can never have too many pretty boxes, can you? When I saw the spiders from Purple Dream Design, I was impressed and knew I had to get one. I went with a small black one that has a ring for putting it on the wall - how cool is that? They do come in all colours though, so spider fans check this out!

I wanted to make myself a winter dress since last year, but never got around to it. At the Black Rose Ball in September (where I didn't trade this time), I already saw the striped cowl dress from Twisted Bee, but I didn't have the time to try it on. In Manchester I did, but size L was a bit large, although the fitting is meant to bee looser that my other cowl dress from Twisted Bee. Size M was then perfect, but the best thing: It has pockets! :D

I'd also like to show a picture of my stall, because I had a rather large space and could bring two rails and my "assistants". My stall neighbour was Carlie Martece, who is an artist and a writer (and more). I picked her second book "Deragon Hex, The Vipdile Key", because I like the sci-fi, dystopian, cyberpunk genre. At home, I looked at the contents page, was surprised by only numbers and the recognised the first digits of Pi.

In Leeds, I also bought a second hand skirt to dye black and alter, but I overestimated the size. I'll probably do it anyway and put it up for sale then. I also couldn't resist the oilcloth fabric from a Leeds Market shop, I guess you know why. Now to the Halloween decorations! On a Friday night, I went to the Skullduggery Ceramics studio and spent two hours having a lot of fun creating these, having some sparkling wine and cake. (Click to enlarge!)

I have some good and some bad news in the end. I stopped doing Inktober, because I'm doing another market (rather spontaneously). It's the one at the Tomorrow's Ghosts Festival in Whitby next weekend! I'm doing Saturday and Sunday and this is a big one for me. Last year I've only been shopping, now I want to make as much as I can for a full stall. Hope to see you!
