Kevinn Draconia of Beauty Killer recently went on a remodeling binge. And he remodeled not only his store, but also his wares. Beauty Killer, which previously was known primarily for punk attire, especially those with a hot pink tone (kind of like Barbie on crack) has gone goth. His inaugural goth outfit is a *huge* gothic gown with a battleship skirt, cobwebs, and spiders, called Haunted. Kevinn’s prices have never been exorbitant, but recently he had a sale, so I grabbed Haunted. Take a look.
I don’t think Kevinn had ever done a gown before, so I am quite impressed with his first effort. The prim work is really well done, and the little sculpted spiders are too cute. Haunted comes with a corset top and a shrug-type jacket. Here I’m wearing just the corset bodice. Long, black fabric, ornamented with a little spider flows from the arm bands. Here’s another set of pics showing the jacket.
I love the crown, don’t you? That’s not part of the Haunted outfit, but it’s free in Beauty Killer’s Midnight Mania board right now. Get a good look at that corset, by the way. The lacings, eyelets, bow, and fabric are made well enough to withstand close scrutiny. Bravo, Kevinn! Now, if you notice the seam at the jacket/pants line, that is probably my fault for not wearing the panty layer. I also could have/should have raised the skirt to hide the seam line. In any case, don’t be so damned picky that you let that bother you. This is a lovely gothic gown. 🙂
Just a day or so ago, Beauty Killer released another new outfit, Emilie, an homage to the much-admired Emilie Autumn. The signature piece of this outfit is the sculpted corset with lacings on the back. I am quite impressed with it. 🙂 Click the pic to get a good view of those lacings, ‘k?
With an Emilie Autumn inspired outfit, I was expecting a burlesque style skirt, but these hotpants are awfully cute. The mismatched striped stockings and the patchwork heart are two elements of Ms. Autumn’s signature style that Kevinn has captured well. The collar and fingerless gloves also come with the outfit. The shoes are from PinkMare’s House – these aren’t sold separately but are part of the Pretend Bride outfit. The hair is from Magika, which I blogged with the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser and Help Japan items earlier this week. Of course the skin is Mynerva’s new Kia.
So, if you’ve never been to Beauty Killer or haven’t been in awhile, you owe it to yourself to wander over for a visit. The build is nice and gothy and there are several lucky boards with older items, one with past hunt gifts. Maybe I’ll see you there. 😉
Happy hunting, gathering, shopping, etc. *mwah*!
