Day 5 – Is there a local Goth band or group in your area? (Goth)
I don't know anything about the local goth scene in a musical sense. I'm not even sure classic goth bands still exist here...? Scene and emo are the big things nowadays. I'm not even sure if "scene" is supposed to describe a specific music scene.
There is a huge goth meetup (from meetup.com) in Chicago, though. It's hosted by Scary Lady Sarah, who, from my perspective, has made quite a name for herself in the area and appears to be rather popular. She's also a DJ and runs a monthly event called Nocturna.
I'd like to join the meetup group, but they have pretty strict entrance rules, so I've been chicken and procrastinated...also, I think I'm still scarred from having to take an hour-long train ride down to Chicago almost every day for several years, and subconsciously try to avoid the trip as much as possible.
Day 5 – 10 items from your wishlist. (Lolita)
Hmm...this is either going to go very well, since I want to change my Lolita style, or very poorly, since I don't identify with it and don't give a crap as much.
1. A basic, black skirt. There is a specific one I want that was made by Meta years ago, but I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to track it down. The border has an eyelet pattern going around it so that it's not just a solid black skirt.
2. A brown or cream Classic blouse.
Yeah...so...how about some items from my universal wishlist?
3. A VW armor ring.
4. A black, full-length mermaid skirt with ruffles in the back or on the sides.
5. A simple, semi-formal dress, preferably black, that I wouldn't be embarrassed to wear to a party. (Wearing "normal" clothes makes me feel embarrassed.) The dress I once wanted from Xylem Clothing doesn't exist anymore (I figured that would happen). It had sort of a sweet look to it.
Yeah, that's pretty much it. I don't really keep long wishlists. I just look for stuff I like while I'm shopping and actually planning on spending the money.
