I love all things kawaii, vintage, retro, kitschy, girly, gothy, and Victorian. I collect old tea tins, stationary, stickers, yarn, beads, vinyl toys, pop art, retro robots, mid century modern anything, and Blythe dolls.
I work as a metadata librarian and historian in a university archive and love my job. Naturally I enjoy describing and organizing and love manuscripts and photographs.
I live with my cat, Spooky Mulder, in a 1910 apartment. It has a lot of vintage charm and I've decorated it with mid century modern furniture.
My favorite genres are new wave, goth synth pop, and dance pop.
Lady Gaga, Bjork, Fiona Apple, Capital Cities, Tori Amos, David Bowie, Smiths, Metric, Myzica, Keane, B-52s, Devo, Cibo Matto, , Depeche Mode, Adam Lambert, Scissor Sisters, Killers, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Oingo Boingo, Garbage, Massive Attack, Santogold, Borns, Lana Del Ray, Adele, to name a few. :)
Favorite of all time: World According to Garp by John Irving. Everyone should be required to read it! It was the book that made me realize how amazing literature could be. Also that no matter how much I tried, I would never ever be able to write a book like that.
Harry Potter series, His Dark Materials series, To Kill a Mockingbird, My Dirty Little Book of Stolen Time, A Reliable Wife. My favorite books are historical fiction and gothic romances.
Tim Burton films (Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow, Sweeney Todd), Les Mis, Wizard of Oz, Harold and Maude, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (original), Leon, Down with Love, Moulin Rouge, Big Lebowski, Rushmore, The Life Aquatic, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Velvet Goldmine, Harry Potter (Azkaban is my fav), Singing in the Rain
Subversive cross stitch, knitting, crocheting (amigarumis!), beading, making kitschy Christmas crafts, decoden
Anything Halloween - the spookier/gothy-er the better!
Religious iconography (note, I am NOT religious, but I love old style iconography like medieval, saints, etc.)
Kawaii goodies - I like ALL brands but Sentimental Circus is my favorite
Favorite colors: Purple, Turquoise, Green
Stickers - loose or sheets, I love them all!
Yarn - I don't care for 100% acrylic, but blends are okay. No novelty yarn such as ribbon or fuzzy. I just am not good with that stuff!
Vinyl Toys/Blind boxes/Kid Robot
Jewelry - I wear a size 6 ring. Any length necklace is okay!
Vintage Children's Books

Beads - Swarovski crystals, glass beads, seed beads, anything sparkly!
Emily the Strange
Art - I love Tara McPherson, Mark Ryden, Kathie Olivas, anything with a weird whimsical look to it.
Perfume - but scented things are fine! I just mean bottles of perfume.
Novelty yarn (i.e. fuzzy or ribbon)
