Too much attitude for one photo... for now So ready to have full group shots with these babes! Y’all may feel the punks are overdone but NEVER. each design (designed by each of these ladies) become more detailed and elaborate with every shoot! Seriously. Do a punk. They allow so much creativity and originality. It’s a blank canvas to interpret that character however you see fit.

Expectation vs. Reality Not gonna lie. I am a dancing derp of a punk princess 100% of the time and I’ve found ma girls that make me feel a little less of a derp 🖤 we all have insecurities, goodness me I’ve got a bucket load. I’ve had friends make me feel like my wigs are weird or my hobby’s are childish (well...😂) but being surrounded around people that encourage you to be your own unique self is such a gift. It takes time to find those people and time to build those relationships. Friendship is difficult and takes a life to learn. The seasons I’ve felt the most discouraged and uninspired were the seasons I was surrounded around the wrong people. Instead of encouragement it was either blatant competition or belittlement through insecurities or plain passivity and laziness that I started to adopt into my own behavior. Take stock and be okay not being friends with everyone. Always be kind, BUT you only have so many days in your life. Why try to fit in with the wrong crew when you can take the time to find those that’ll rock out to kpop with you, in the middle of a park, wearing studs and wigs. Find your people, it’s worth the wait.🖤 #PDXPUNKS #punkprincess
Ladies don’t start fights-but they can finish them🖤 This properly sums my face looking towards the rest of the month. Fierce and fighting because there’s lots to do and little time to waste.💪🏻 Fighting a creativity slump right now but excited for new surroundings to get the ideas flowing. I’ll be moving places at the end of the month (don’t worry, this raindrop is staying in her rainy city) Also will be bringing the punks back at the end of the month for an official shoot and I am more than excited to be with all my girls again!

Beauty isn’t overnight.✌🏻💜✌🏻 I tend to just throw bits of my songs up on my insta story as I’m writing and working on them. I tell myself I cant post it on my Instagram cuz of all stupid excuses: It’s not a professional video, it’s not recorded with a good mic, the songs not done or my voice isn’t good at that note etc etc yadda yadda. I just discount the time and effort and heart I’ve put into these songs. 50% off here only window shop worthy content.🤦🏼♀️ I was about to do it again (see instastory format 😂) and I had to stop myself. This is a song I am proud of and I want to share it with those wanting to listen. So if youre listening thank you truly and kindly💜
Will forever wear flowers in hair. 🌸🌼💕🌼🌸 On my way to becoming the bohemian princess my heart has yearned to be. (Be prepared. summer and renaissance fairies are right around the bend.) Was in a little social media lull when @jhaasphoto blessed my little spirit with these photos a while ago from a shoot we did last year, but I’m feeling good rn AND YALL IM SO EXCITED TO FINALLY SHOW YOU THEM!! John is an incredible photographer and editor and I’m constantly blown away by his talent. Y’all. He’s real deal stuff. This dress was my original #dappercastle dress and of course had to pair it with a sleeping beauty look topped with a @c80sthingamabobs tiara! ✨😍✨ Psssst. And just for more fun secrets between us, this is the wig I repurposed to create my newest Alice wig!! (Lots of brushing and bless the creator of the flat iron) *********************************** Promise y’all imma keep creating cosplays and costumes and all sorts of fun (not just selfies with me and my friends🤦🏼♀️) but I’ll be doing them with more personal interpretations cuz I’ve gotten bored with my straight recreates. Here’s to more fun and flowers!
