21st Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig 2012 - Day 3

At depeche mode party
I didn't forget to write about the rest of my travel to the WGT, I've just been busy with my birthday and some job interviews in the past days. Here we are! On day 3 I decided to experiment my absolutely-not-complete newbie steampunk outfit. Since my camera is huge and I just wanted all my stuff to stay in my pockets without bringing my bag with me (and since I didn't want to bother the others to bring it for me) I left it at the hotel and I can show you only the pictures the others took. We woke up late and we all went back to Sixtina and XtraX for some shopping with the ones who weren't with us the day before, then the group splitted again and I went to Werk II to see Nachtmahr in concert but again I had to listen from outside, this time because it was too hot inside and there was no place to sit (I really needed to sit for a while since I walked on heels all day long) and when I was ready to go back inside, the doors were closed. :( Well at least I succeeded in eating some vegetables that night instead of all the junk food we had to eat all the time! :P After Werk II the group reunited in a club at a Depeche Mode party to celebrate Charlotte's birthday, but we didn't stay long since we wanted to go to Moritzbastei. I didn't realize how big it was at the beginning, because I stopped on the first dancefloor, but when I had to look for the others I explored the whole place and it is really amazing. There's a very similar place in my city but it's not that big and it's not a place for goths...
 We saw two men in amazing, huge steampunk armours and everybody wanted to take pictures to them. They looked very pissed off for this.... I bet being asking for pictures 24hours can be a bit bothering, But if you wear something like that it's because you like to focus attention on yourself, so pose for my picture and shut up! :P At Moritzbastei me and my mates spent hours chitchatting and of course gossipping about people we meet in clubs. Gosh, I think I was evil before I heard them buzzing! O.O I hope they don't say such evil things about me when I'm not with them! 

Half of us including me went back to the hotel at dawn, the others stayed out till late in the morning. Here are my make up and outfit. I like steampunk style very much, but almost all the ladies in steampunk outfits I saw there were a mash between victorian and steampunk, with blouses, long skirts and little hats. I'm more into an outfit that could be comfortable and suitable for a time traveller, with shorts and a tool belt. I'm still working on it and currently I'm waiting for the leather corset I ordered for my birthday.

Dimmu Borgir

Last Sunday night I went to see Dimmu Borgir at New Age club in Roncade. The concert was amazing, they are really good musicians. Especially the drummer. After the gig I waited outside the club to meet them and I took some pictures. Here is me with Shagrath. I didn't expect him to be so handsome in person. *-* You can see other pictures on my fb page: (don't forget to like it)

The transit of Venus

Last night I didn't go to sleep beacuse I was afraid I wouldn't have woken up to see it in time! After writing the previous blog about my 2nd day at WGT I took my bike and went to the river shore to have a better view. Unfortunately the horizon was very cloudy and I couldn't see anything. When finally the sun came out of the clouds I sadly discovered the dark glass I had with me was inefficient, plus Venus looked so little it was really hard to find it without enlarging it with a telescope or bioculars. I luckily found a kind lady who borrowed me her binoculars for a few seconds, so that I could finally see the show! I noticed she didn't have any dark glass, just a piece of an x-ray sheet and it was very effective! Since I misunderstood the event would have finished at 5.55 and this time was very soon I came back home in a hurry and looked for some old x-ray. I found it in a few seconds so I ran at the terrace and used it as a filter for my photocamera, I zoomed at its maximum and I still couldn't see the event (it ended at 6.50 here). My mum and my brother were waking up at that moment to go to work so I told them to run and see it or they wouldn't have seen it anymore in their life. (It will happen again in 2117!) So finally I could take pictures of it. :) My camera is not professional but I'm so satisfied for having my own pictures of Venus transiting in front of the Sun!

21st Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig 2012 - Day 2

Hi cuties! :D Here's my blog about my second day in Leipzig at 21st WGT!
From day 2 we started moving around the city in small groups or even alone. Leipzig was a very important trade center before the fall of the Berlin wall, after wich the number of its inhabitants decreased drastically. That's why it looks so enormous and empty (we never found traffic in the city) and wandering through it you can see a lot of buildings empty or closed since ages. Because of its size it took centuries to go from one place to another by tram and busses, but the public transports were very efficient.
In the morning my group visited the central station were we saw other italian people we usually meet in clubs here (we met some of them the day before too) and I had some super yummy orange duck for lunch. *ç* Then we had a *REAL* italian espresso at Paganini's, the price was double than what we usually pay in Italy but it was the only good coffe I had in Germany. (I had to go back there a few other times in those days, because I'm an espresso addicted and I really couldn't drink that pot of dirty water Germans call coffee XD no offence!) It was so weird to speak to the italian waiters! :) I felt home. After lunch we walked through the streets nearby and I was photographed by many people when I stopped next to a wonderful Rolls Royce parked in front of an antiquary shop (a professional photographer gave me his card but I still can't find my pictures in his site). The same happened at Absintherie Sixtina were a real antique hearse was parked.
I felt such a diva that I almost forgot about the bartender making me pay more than my due and not giving my money back. :/ There was a clothing stand next to the absintherie and another stand selling dildos and other weird things. The man there gave me a little squared plastic pack and I thought it was a condom. So weird. Than we visited the amazing XtraX store but I didn't buy anything (unfortunately I have really expensive and peculiar tastes... I drool for everything is uncommon and very detailed, so I couldn't afford anything I liked there :/)
After all the walking and posing we went back to the hotel to rest for a while before going to Agra for the night. While I was all alone in my room I watched some interesting documentaries and the Simpsons in german on the tv and I laughed at some points even if I couldn't get a single word... I also decided to discover what was in the squared little pack: it was not a condom, it was heart shaped strawberry flavoured jelly candies! So cute! 
Then we spent the night in Agra: since I was very disappointed from the first band we saw for using playback and not even try to make it seem they were live, I left my friends to visit the shops again: I found some super cheap vintage clothes (I asked the seller if the prices had any mistake but he said they were right): there were 2 *AMAZING* tailored skirts I wanted so much but they just didn't fit, so I just bought a beautiful vintage dress I'll show you asap (it's in the washing machine right now). Then I tried to go back to my friends in the concerts area but it was too late and security didn't let me enter, so I just waited and when they reached me we all went back to hotel to put on proper clothing and go to the amazing fetish party at the beautiful Volkspalast (it is absolutely my favourite place among all the ones we visited, Moritzbastei takes the second place). We reached it through the wrong way and we seriously risked our lives because of the giant holes in the ground and no lights to see them! It was sadly forbidden to  take photographs inside the palace but you can see the location on its site, just to know how sumptuous it was! We had fun till the morning and then have a huuuuge breakfast at 6.30am at the hotel restaurant before falling dead on our beds. Woah! This post has been way longer than the other, but on the first day we actually didn't this much! As in the previous post I leave you with a picture of my outfit and one of my make up that day! byes xxx

Messy hair... Stupid wind!

21st Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig 2012 - Day 1

Hello cuties! I carved out some time to write about my super adventure at the 21st edition of the Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig. In this post I'll tell you what happened on the first day. I travelled by train to Verona on Thursday afternoon to reach the house of one of the guys, which was our meeting point. (We all are from different cities in our region: since the goth scene is not so big in Italy, you have to travel a lot to reach the most popular parties and clubs - and still we live in the area where it's more populous - so you meet people from very different and far places.) We ate pizza for dinner and then at 10:22 pm our travel get started! We stopped many times because travelling by night is really hard, plus the owner of the car in which I was didn't want anyone else to drive so he did the whole travel without sleeping.
 So embrassing: my travel outfit!(I just
 put on what remained out of my bag, despite 
not a single cloth matches with the others)

We arrived at our hotel in Leipzig at 10 am. It was really beautiful, with big windows and a glass elevator. But when I opened the door of my apartment I found a man in his underwear: I shut the door immediately and ran in the guys' apartment! O.O How embrassing! My room mates didn't believe me so they opened the door again!

stranger to go away from our room
I'm not the tidiest person in the world, but  this is how the
room looked after 5 minutes  my room mates were in XD

Even if we all were tired I didn't sleep beacuse I wanted to get ready for Viona's victorian pic-nic starting at 3pm. Unfortunately the others get ready very late and after chainging our ticket at Agra we got lost in Leipzig trying to reach the park where the pic-nic took place. It was 7pm when I gave up because I saw many people around in victorian clothes with empty baskets coming back. I was so sad that I cried... I really wanted to partecipate. Plus, I brought a really big and heavy picnic hamper with food and wine for all my mates, which occupied a lot of space in the car and in the end it was totally useless. :(

Me sad for not going to the pic-nic :(

Fortunately I was soon cheered up by a bottle of wine and we decided to go back to Agra to have dinner, drink beer, watch the concerts and lose a lot of time wandering through the market. It was so big and full of amazing things to buy (some of them were very expensive like leather corsets worth 500-700 € or metal handmade collars worth 300€). I didn't want to spend all my money on the first day so I just bought a pair of cute goggles with mirrors as lenses.
Some rosè wine to cheer me up

No partying till the morning on the first night: we went back to the hotel very soon because we still were all very tired for the travel from Italy. I leave you with a picture of my outfit and one of my make up on the first day of Treffen, byes! xxx
