Gone Is The Flaming Heart And With It Torrid's Soul

I knew Torrid was making changes. The Torrid nearest to me recently moved from the Arlington Parks Mall to the Arlington Highlands shopping center, but it wasn't just the location that changed. Gone were the sensuous purple walls and boudoir lighting, gone were the gothic black decorations that brought it all together, even after the product went through a drastic change years ago. At least it was still Torrid, and to all the plus-size alternative girls, Torrid represented the hope that we were visible long before blogs and selfies.

[TOP 10 TUESDAY] Getting Crafty With 10 Supernatural Items on Etsy

The Supernatural Mid-Season Finale was tonight, which means I have 5 Tuesday nights free and Alex has 5 Tuesdays mornings without the Heat of the Moment alarm. It was a compromise after she threatened to throw my phone out the window. With all the live blogging going on, I felt it was the perfect night to post the Supernatural anti-possession bows on our Faye's Realm Etsy store. I'd been meaning to for a while since we don't have any conventions for about three months.

[DAILY OUTFIT] Now That She's Back From That Soul Vacation, Tracing Her Way Through The Constellation (Corpus Christi Trip Day 1)

My younger sister, Alex and I went down to Corpus Christi in the middle of the week recently to see a friend. The trip was half-planned, half-impromptu and drained the small reserve of money we had. But we go out of town often for conventions so it was nice to go just for fun.

[DAILY OUTFIT] Long Black Skirts And Painted Eyes, Sally Used To Mesmerize With Sultry Music From Above

I decided to play around with Photoshop filters. The sunset colored the photo, this song was playing in my head, and thus I felt moved to give it a more artsy look. Thank you Angled Strokes.

[TOP 10 TUESDAY] In Honor Of The Day of the Doctor, I'm Coveting These 10 Stylish TARDIS

I recently got lost on Etsy while I was suppose to be uploading some new bows for Faye's Realm. It's really easy to get sidetracked in a digital sea of creative people.

The upcoming Doctor Who 50th Anniversary 3D Special was heavily on my mind as I live in one of the cities that is doing a simulcast that Saturday. The tickets sold out quickly and I felt like a bad fan but Alex and I were debating going because 3D movies give her motion sickness. Also, we wanted to go with friends - nerdy fangirling is a lot more fun in groups.

Back on Etsy, a single Tardis bow led me down a rabbit hole of wishlist making. My closet is shamefully lacking as geeky girl, and while I don't wear a lot of blue, I think it could use some. In no specific order, these were my favorite finds:
