Wave Gotik Treffen: Part Zwei

What better time to write another Wave Gotik Treffen post than on this hideously rainy, dark, depressing, finals-filled day?

Since Wave Gotik Treffen is this weekend in Leipzig, Germany, I would like to celebrate all things  Gothic by posting some of the highlights from previous years.

All of these photos were borrowed from SadGoth.com which is a great Web site if you’re looking for an unofficial guide to Wave Gotik Treffen. It features all the basics on how to get to Leipzig, where to stay, Newbie dos and don’ts, costs, and much more. I highly recommend it for anyone who’s even remotely curious about WGT.

My favorite make-up artist on YouTube, MissChievous, also has a Gothic make-up tutorial that I’ve posted here.

Hope you’ve enjoyed exploring the dark side a little further. Feel free to leave comments on anything you would like to see more of or any helpful suggestions you might have.

Wedding Dance!

This past weekend I went to two weddings.  The first wedding was for two friends of mine that I went to high school with, Carissa and D-Rob (short for Daniel Robert).  Since Oz was a groomsman in the wedding, I had the inside scoop on what would go down during the ceremony:

(Unfortunately, the video got cut off, but Oz did a cartwheel and an air split during the intro.)

The bride decided that they would dance down the aisle just like the really famous YouTube video that was parodied on a recent episode of “The Office.” Only they didn’t use the same song, they used Jay Sean’s “Down,” which I think was a good choice.

The reception was fun, it was like a mini high school reunion. There was an open bar (FYI: Seagram’s grape vodka and Sprite taste just like a Pixie stick), a photo booth, and a crazy DJ that looked exactly like Doc Brown from “Back to the Future.” We danced all night and a good time was had by all.
