“Spitting in a wishing well
Blown to hell… crash
I’m the last splash
I know you, little libertine.”
~ Cannonball by The Breeders
‘Cannonball” is a song I heard a lot in grad school—I had a roommate who ran around in her Doc Martens, blasting Cannonball on her stereo and passionately lecturing me with her hybrid Oxford/American accent about the articulation of snake spines as she cradled a skeleton in her pale hands. Her name was Kate. Kate, whose pet snake’s name was Nate–Nate the Snake.
Kate would have worn this outfit, no problem. She was not goth but she liked to show off her small shape and pale skin. This new dress from Babyhoney Bailey—it could have gone two ways. With its great ruffles at the neckline and around the skirt, its sexy girly spaghetti straps, I could have dressed it up with stockings and heels, but it was so perfectly Kate, I found Gospel Voom’s Docs in my inventory, pulled on stockings from Canimal Zephyr, and headed out to the club.
I put on dark lipstick. Now, Kate was not always a make-up wearer but when she did, she liked a dark lip to offset her porcelain skin. This makeup from Tuli Asturias is perfect. Her dark hair was perpetually a mess—the humidity in North Carolina did her in, so this hair from Kavar Cleanslate pretty much fits the Kate bill.
