Things I’m feeling inspired by at the moment

So as I mentioned before that I might make a collage of things that inspire me at the moment- I did and here it is!

Misc1Porcelian dolls, magical creatures: unicorns, old fashioned corsets, Marie Antointette, delicate lace, albino peacocks, Kerli in her army of love era, Kerli in her tea party outfit and box pleated trims… Pretty things galore!♥

So these are the things that I have in mind while I’m crafting right now. I’m kind of always inspired by Kerli’s army of love era of style because it’s totally DIY and so awesome to me.

Again, I can’t show you anything that I’m creating right now because of the lack of my camera. I’m creating this elegant pastel pink/white neckpiece right now with a corset inspired lacing at the front. I think It’s going to look awesome. I hope I get my camera or phone fixed soon so I can show you the things I recently made.

Who is Viola Whimsical? – Music and style (OLD, from 2013)

Hello again. It’s very nice to see you! Todays post will be about music and style as you already might have read from the last post or this posts title ;).

Shall we start with the music first?

Well first of all, I’m electrogoth/ futurepop and EBM sucker! Haha! In Sweden we call this type of music from the very  beginning ”Synth”.  When I found this type of music I felt like I was home. It just feels right! And that is one of the reasons why I love music so much, you can feel really home without really being home, through music. 🙂 I think It’s beautiful.

I love the bands Depeche mode, The cure, VNV nation, Skinny puppy, Elegant machinery, Colony 5, Covenant, IAMX, And one, Camouflauge.

The band VNV nation including Mark Jackson and Ronan Harris.

But do I only listen to electrogoth/ futurepop and EBM? Nope! I listen to a tiny amount of gothic rock like The cure, the lovely Robert Smith, I listen to a lot of experimental music like Sigur ros, Aphex twin and Björk, she will always be my heroine!! I  also listen to some classic music. Piano is one of my favourite instruments. I also really like the Theremin, It’s an instrument which you never even need to touch to play. It was actually the first electronic instrument ever. It’s super spooky and cool!

Old picture of Björk. So cute!

 

The artist Kerli will probably always mean a lot to me since her music helped me through some awful times. She’s also a heroine to me. I have so much to thank her for. The fact that she is a girl who originally also comes from a little town in a forest, but in Estonia made me absolutetly crazy about her. When I listened to her a lot she had a alternative rock sound going on, at the moment shes creating pop music and I like some of that as well.

Music and the impact it can make on one person is positively amazing and goregous. One of the best things in life is music if you ask me 😉
And now to the style part of this post:
Style is something that should be really fun and personal. I love to be creative with my own look. I think that style is a form of self love. You take care of yourself and make yourself beautiful just for YOU because YOU love yourself. Now, some people doesn’t want to have style and it is just as okay as it is to want to. To me it happend to be expressing myself just like when I draw. I use myself as a canvas and create a pretty picture using myself. I like to wear makeup and cute clothes and decorate everything I see. What’s wrong with that?
I am not a superficial person at all. I think that it is very sad when people judge me just because of how I look casue I am, as told before a sweet loving person. But It’s also quite good that some people do that because then I just know that I wouldn’t want them in my life anyways. I guess that it is the people who get to know me will understand this. I just like celebrate beauty and style everyday. Even when I’m not all fixed with makeup and pretty things!
And that’s the post of today. I hope everyone have a great day or night according to where you are in the world! It is late evening here in Sweden.
Next post will be about fashion and sewing (as in clothing,shoes and those other lovely things.)
