The everyday life of a victorian goth

I just remembered today that I still have my Q&A open, so send me your questions! It can be anything you want to know about me or things I have knowledge of. I'll keep it open for a little while longer, and then I'll answer them all in a post!

So you haven't heard from me in over a week - What have I been doing? Mostly working, and watching Dark Shadows under a blanket. I'm past episode 100 now, but that's nothing, haha.
It's getting cold here in Norway now! We have reached minus now. That means I have to cover up, which I am not a fan of (why do I even live here). This is how me and Jack feel about it:

Halloween is never over!
Blazer - DIY
Witch necklace - Charity market
Witch shirt - Walmart around halloween
Tulle skirt - No idea
Stockings - Witchy Bitchy (local shop)
Witchy boots - Funtasma

A more casual work look
T-shirt - Filipino department store
Plaid skirt - Forever 21, I think

So I decided to be fancy for no reason!
I haven't had a reason to wear this skirt yet.
I bought it during WGT, so now I finally wore it!
It's so beautiful, and in my favorite color.
An old man even said I looked like a princess!

Bolero - Thrifted
Shirt - H&M
Necklace - Goodgoth
Corset - Dracula Clothing
Gloves - Darxity
Skirt - Burleska
Petticoat - Hell Bunny
Stockings - Walmart around halloween
Victorian boots - Funtasma

So to my surprise, this came in the mail!
I ordered it on ebay, but it never came.
I got my money back for it, and now it came!
So free book! Shhh, don't tell anyone.
Since Simen loves him, I thought I'd get it!
It only took like two months to arrive, LOL.

I feel so pretty! I looove satin.

So I've had this chocolate pizza for a while.
I finally got around to trying it!
It was actually pretty good!
Though I only managed to eat a quarter of it.
Recommended for sweet tooths!

Simen got a new car! A Citroën C4.
His other car is a Mercedes convertible.
I'm so glad we'll be rid of it now.
That car is NOT comfortable to sit in!
The new one is perfect and a good size!
We grocery shopped for 1000 NOK today, and there was still room in the trunk!
The drive down to the inlaws for the holidays will be great.
Same with the drive to Sweden for the Subkult festival!

And today, on victorian housewives!
I am so goddamn cute in this apron.

Violet love! <3

I'm sitting on a secret footstool, haha.
Too small to be a barbie cake...
...so a polly pocket cupcake?
Ok I'll stop bothering you with my silliness now.
Leave me some Q&A questions, and I'll see you soon!

Heather Show, Old TV Shows & Outfits

Finally finished The Munsters! It's only taken me over a year, LOL.
Yeah I don't watch much TV. But I'm trying nowadays!

Just being cozy.
Lace cardigan - Darxity, I think
Babydoll top - C-Girl
Jeans - JAG

So I've delved into this now!
This is gonna take me YEARS to finish, my god.

My outfit for the Heather show!
Blazer - DIY
Top - DIY
Skirt - Pull & Bear
Fishnets - Leg Avenue, probably
Secret Spongebob socks - Walmart
Boots - Demonia

And make-up!
Obviously Spellbound-inspired.

This is Amund, the bassist. He likes to wear dresses.

And he looks gorgeous!

Long-leg Isak

Love this lighting!

The aftermath.

If you like post punk (like The Birthday Party), you'll love Heather. Isak actually sounds like Nick Cave! Kind of looks like him too, just blonde baby-face version, hahah. Speaking of Nick Cave, he's coming to our city in june! We just bought the tickets. We had to think about it, cause I've never spent that much money to see a band before (115$). But we figured it would be too stupid not to see him when he's right here. Plus I was pretty bummed about not seeing him in Oslo last month.
Anyway, check out Heather! Facebook Soundcloud Spotify Instagram 
They just released their new single Slither, and it's amazing! It has fantastic atmosphere, which is really important for me when it comes to music. And I just can't get over Isak's deep voice, haha!

Red & Black

Hello, everyone! I thought I'd do a little personal update. The past week I've mostly been working, and gone to two beer tastings - which totally counts as work too. I have a few pictures, most of the ones I took were super bad (apparently it's a thing to taste beers in the dark), so below is all I have.

Just some casual work make-up LOL
Simen is obsessed with this selfie for some reason.
Probably because it doesn't even look like me, haha!

Me and my boss went to a Yule beer festival on saturday.
7 Fjell (7 Mountains) is a local brewery, and they had some awesome ones!
Most notably ''More yule than jesus'', which is a milk and cookies brown ale.
IT WAS DELICIOUS! I love interesting beers.
So I will definitely have to get myself a couple of bottles.
They also had Miss Sophie and James.
James was fine, but nothing compared to More yule than jesus.
Miss Sophie was a nice and fresh blonde ale.
If you don't know, here in Norway it's a tradition on december 23rd to watch ''Dinner for one''.
It's hilarious, and it still is year after year!
So the beers in the photo are a reference to that.

Cute santas from En Liten Øl (A Small Beer) brewery!
They lured me in with gingerbread cookies.

Some more make-up. I've done a lot of make-up lately!
Me and Simen met his mother briefly, that was nice.
But I had to leave to go to another beertasting at work.

Me and my boss were so excited for this one.
It's called Black Blood, and guess what color it is!
It contains beetroot, but doesn't taste like it.
Delicious! And SO cool. We were giggling like idiots.

Another honorable mention! Heheh.
I'm not really an IPA person, but it was fine.

I'll throw in an old high school memory.
Don't ask, I have no idea how this happened LOL

I started playing this game called My Cafe, and they still have halloween stuff!
When I leveled up, this awesome thing showed up!
I totally think Simen should buy that instead of a new Mercedes LOL

Anyway, that's all for now! Maybe not super exciting, but I'm having a nice time. I hope you like small insights to everyday life. I'm just a boring normal person just like everyone else! And don't forget that I have a Q&A open! Send me any questions to any of my social media. Take care!

Send Me Your Questions!

Hey! I thought it would be fun to do a Q&A, so send me your questions! On this post, facebook, instagram, amino or email carolineoasgard@gmail.com - if you want to be anonymous, just let me know. You can ask me anything, whether it's personal questions to get to know me, advice or maybe something I can write a post about later. I'm a pretty open person, so don't be shy! I'll probably keep this open for a month or so, we'll see how many questions I get. And of course, feel free to ask me stuff afterwards as well! I can't wait to see what you come up with. So SHOOT!

Here, have some photos from Samhain!

Simen's future is looking good!

Goth Boot Collection

Happy Halloween / Samhain! Today I have a little treat for you; my goth boot collection! I basically only wear boots (other than the boots in these posts, I have two pairs of work shoes and one pair of Converse), all year round. Over the years I have collected a few boots, so I thought I'd show you what I have right now - and also what Simen currently has. Most of these are actually the shoes I put on my wishlist in my mid teens, and a couple of years ago I completed the wishlist! Demonia Emily 309 were also on the list, but I gave them away (shoutout to Mia!) since they were too big - It took an accident where I almost destroyed my knees to give them up. After I bought victorian boots this year, I felt like my shoe collection was complete - buut I've been starting to like the look of pikes / winklepickers (which I used to dislike before - I also don't like creepers). So we'll see if my collection will grow! But mainly I like my shoes big and stompy. I might do an update later, especially when Simen collects more shoes. At that point I may or may not just edit this post. Anyway, hope you enjoy!

Taake girlie - Official merch
Tights - Topshop
These are my everyday shoes. I think they were bought at a pop-up outlet store for very cheap. I go through boots like these pretty quickly, so I change them out when they fall apart. As long as they look sort of like this and are waterproof, I'm good. I don't really care much, since they're cheap.

Demonia Gothika 101

New Rock - M.TR003-S1 Trail
Thank you to Septicemia for finding that out for me!
I bought them years ago when EMP was still XtraX.

Demonia Gothika 200

Demonia Trashville 518 - I THINK.
According to most websites, mine are too short to be them.

Demonia Charade 206

Demonia Torment 703

Funtasma Dame 115

 Now for Simen's pairs!
Steelground Rebel 103
I got him these for his birthday last year. He needed it!

New Rock M.373X-25 Vintage Flower, methinks?
He got this at EMP during WGT this year.

That's all, folks!
What do you think of our shoe collection?

My Halloween Plus Lots More!

Hey everyone! I've just had another busy week. Not as busy as my last one, but still didn't have time to blog. So let's just cram it all into this post! Hopefully you'll get through it allright, LOL.

Idk if other countries have these?
Everyone ever has let me be completely stupid!
I used to say I only liked the orange ones LOL

Modded BoF shirt - Vampirefreaks
Leather skirt - Forever 21
Stockings - Walmart (halloween)

Modded shirt - Old staff shirt
Leggings - Dysfunctional Doll

 Have a rare selfie of my face - with make-up!

This week I started a new job, at a burger bar. I love it so far! It feels so great to be back where I want to be. At the same time an old friend of mine came to visit, along with a friend of hers! So that was a pleasant extra. 

I got a bunch of new lipstick! So far I've only tried the black MAC one (pretty good), and the first of the MAC Vamplify ones (not good - it's basically an ok pigmented lipgloss). Can you tell that I'm a sucker for dark colors? I love that I can get cool colors like this everyone now, versus some years ago where the coolest colors I could get were blackened plums and cherries.

Goth pantyliners! HEHEHEH.

Modded leather jacket - Poizen Industries
Top - Second hand
Pants - Darkside
Boots - New Rock

So as you can see, I dyed my hair again! When I put the bleach in, my purple streaks instantly turned green. I was so scared my hair wouldn't lift, that I planned to cut all of my hair off the next day. But it turned out great! So instead I've decided to cut my hair in a pixie cut when I finish this tub of color (Manic Panic Fuchsia Shock). I haven't cut my hair for 5 years, as an ''how long can my hair get?'' experiment (plus hello, I look like a black metal man) - It's now 1 meter long! And I'm getting sick of it. Everything is kind of a hassle. So hopefully I finish this tub when it gets warmer again, so it will feel extra nice to chop it all off!

Oh! On saturday me and Simen were catwalk models at a second hand show as part of International Week in the city center. It went pretty great! People loved it. I'm hoping to get photos, and I'll definitely share them with you guys! I'm also waiting for photos from the WWF course last week.

My halloween costume! How do you like it? I decided to drop the wig I had bought for the costume, cause it was so awful. My actual hair looks way nicer - plus I could show off my new color (that matches the cape)! I knew I wanted to do a frozen effect coming out of my jaw, and snow crystals. I just had no idea how, haha. But I managed to wing it pretty well, and it didn't take much time either! So I am really happy with the result. I like being non-spooky for halloween, since I'm spooky all year round anyway.

I went to Hulen (The Cave - it literally is), which I think has the best atmosphere for a halloween party. The decorations weren't bad, but there weren't as many people as I've seen in previous years, and the music wasn't THAT good (not that I could hear it from where I was sitting anyway). But I loved seeing all the costumes people were wearing!
Women's bathroom, heheh.


Shirt - Festival merch
Cargo pants - Mango
Kitty socks - Second hand (from my sister, don't worry xD)

And there we have it! Hope I didn't tire you out there. I actually have more photos from this week, but they weren't that good anyway, so I'll just leave them out. I knew this would be a long post anyway. But I hope you liked it! Let me know what you think about any of my adventures this week!
