In honor of the release of the movie Pitch Perfect, which I absolutely adored, Jon Levine and I went over to Buzznet to do a little live performance of 'No Diggity', the 1996 R&B number from the movie! I'm rapping, guys. And using a loop pedal (in six inch Hellbounds, obviously). Check it out!!
Hey guys! I went over to the Buzznet video studios this week to show y'all a few things that I'm obsessed with right now, with a little help from our friends at Hot Topic! I will most likely be wearing at least one of these items to a premiere tonight. Check out the video below.
Would you ever wear what I picked out??
If so, you can buy the product here:
Welp, being the horror movie fangirl that I am, I'm getting super duper excited for the new movie The Possession, which comes out this Friday the 31st. It's about - wait for it - a possession, and it's presented by Sam Raimi, the director of acclaimed horror parody Drag Me to Hell and classics like The Evil Dead and Army of Darkness, so naturally my interest is piqued! (Besides, why would I not want to see a horror movie with Jeffrey Dean Morgan in it?)
In honor of the creepy-little-girl-driven movie, I've compiled a list of my personal favorite creepy horror movie girls. Check out the trailer & list below!
11.) Kyra Collins, The Sixth Sense
She's not a seminal CLG exactly, but don't act like Mischa Barton and her ghosty puke didn't scare the shit out of you when you saw this movie.
10.) Claudia, Interview With the Vampire
She's a vampire. She kills people. And then she grows up and gets naked as the world is ending! Or is that something else?
9.) Dorothy Gale, Return to Oz
There's nothing wrong with Dorothy in this movie. She's perfectly likable and friendly. It's just that Fairuza Balk has a particular way of making all my hairs stand on end, in the best way possible. Plus there's always the possibility that her character is just batshit crazy. PS: This movie rules.
8.) Wednesday Addams, The Addams Family
Honestly, who didn't wish they were Wednesday Addams when they were growing up? Oh, healthy, adjusted people?
7.) Those hallway twins, The Shining
Classic creepy little girls. All they have to do is stand there and it's terrifying.
6.) Em, The Possession
So I haven't seen it yet, but I'm crossing my fingers that she is as spine-tinglingly spooky as she appears to be in the trailer.
5.) Samara Morgan, The Ring
How many days again?
4.) Regan McNeil, The Exorcist
Ah Regan, a CLG staple. There's nothing like an obscene, demonic, putrefying little girl to keep you up at night. Watch your language, young lady.
3.) Nell Sweetzer, The Last Exorcism
Possibly one of my favorite exorcism movies to date, bizarre ending aside. You ain't seen a possession 'til you've seen this possession.
2.) Carol Anne Freeling, Poltergeist
This movie used to scare the living bejeezus out of me. "They're heeeere!"
1.) Eli, Let the Right One In
Sorry, fans of the American remake, it simply doesn't compare to the Swedish version. This particular actress is so subtle and perfect in her creepy/sweet line-toeing that you don't know whether to hug her or kill someone for her or pound her with a stake. And that, my friends, is how to be the perfect creepy little horror movie girl.
Bonjour from Paris, guys!
So... I was lucky enough to pick out some clothes this past month from Kohl’s Princess Vera Wang Collection! I love this line because I can wear the pieces as a bold look or a casual one (which, granted, is more rare for me). Check out the outfits I put together below - my personal favorites are the black boots (which I have been wearing in London and Paris all week) and the plaid skirt. Yes please thank you very much.
T-shirts, turquoise pants, plaid skirt, denim vest, deer necklace, and black boots available at Kohl's now!
If you like what I chose, you should go to the website - there is a virtual “closet” where users, like YOU, can make their own Princess Vera outfit and share it. You can create and save your look and win a $500 Kohl’s gift card!
What do you think? Would you wear any of these clothes??
Feeling rather sassy today, which naturally means I'm wearing stripes and a military hat. I'm sure I could've thought of a better name for this look, but that would be more mental effort than I am willing to exert! Now excuse me as I jump around and stick my tongue out at people.

SO I've been wanting to do a performance video for a while, and, with a little help from my friends, as of the other week I was finally able to do so! This is only the first of many to come, but I thought I'd begin where anyone would - with an homage to my childhood. (Because whose childhood isn't filled with bizarre R&B sexual innuendos?) Thanks to Jon Levine for playing with me and Brad Schulz for filming & editing.

I wanted to capture the aesthetic of both characters, Queen Ravenna and Snow White, as they are interpreted by this particular movie - combined, of course, with my own personal style and elements of the original fairytale (i.e. the glass coffin). I'm rather happy with the results! What do you guys think??

Hey guys! So, having recently watched some visually striking horror films and been feeling inspired by that sweet juxtaposition of evil and beauty, I became curious to see just how intertwined horror and fashion have been over the years. My findings? They go together like peanut butter and jelly, albeit slightly less commonly found together.
In this gallery I've collected the most awe-inspiring looks I could find from within the horror genre. From Dracula to Twin Peaks to The Woman in Black, fashion lives in horror! Proceed if you dare! And while you're at it, check out this striking trailer for The Woman in Black and the crazy-good Facebook app that goes with it!
Did I miss anything good??
Haaay guys! I'm not going to make excuses for being MIA lately - just know it's only because good things are bubbling up all around. In any case, a few weeks ago I hosted a photo shoot with some of my loveliest friends, and here are my two finished personal shots from one of the photographers, Casey Curry! Ours turned out a little more sultry than girly, but I've been needing a little red in my life.
What do you think??
Was feeling rather colorful and John Waters-y last night! If you look closely you can see my eyebrow experiment, which induced multiple "What'd you do to your face??" inquiries from everyone I came into contact with. This, of course, only further encouraged my behavior. I'm too busy eating this peanut butter toast to think of a better blurb to write, but know that I'm doing it in my heart.
