Truth be told, my English teacher who recommended Anne Rice books to me probably helped ensure my survival through high school. They were wonderful outlets between my rural isolation, Catholic school suppression, and my abusive household. Due to this, I hold a very special place in my heart for the movie Queen of the Damned even though it pales in comparison to the book on which it was based. The soundtrack is fucking great though!
I’ve worn a variation of this outfit 100+ times in real life and picked out a bunch of my favorite stuff from the 1990s to wear for this character. Oh shit, does that mean I peaked in high school? 🤯 Nah. I’m waaaaayyyyy better now. 💅
Outfit: Red Plaid Lip Service Lace-up Corset Bustier Top that I’ve owned for 20+ years, so I guess that makes it vintage.
Red Tartan Black Lace MinxClothing.biz by Sequoia Alternative Clothing Skirt that I found online and was pleasantly surprised at how closely the red plaids went together!
Black Fishnets with Red Back Seam that I got at a clothing swap. I have yet to find anywhere that I can get another pair. There’s no tag or brand on them. I try very hard not to rip these like I have all my other fishnet stockings. #RIP
