Exciting news! The launch of PorcelainToy’s ‘Monsters’ music video was on Sunday, and the film is now available online.
Here it is, my screen debut as a costumer! What do you think? Can you tell the difference between my dress and the original? Is it the right mix of pathos and cheesy (just like the original White Zombie)? And isn’t Elizabeth de la Ray as Madge/Madeline gorgeous?
The launch night was lots of fun. It was held at the newly refurbished Roxy Cinema (my neighborhood cinema!) with a dress code of black and white 1930s Gothic.
I wore vintage dress trousers (probably 1940s) and took in Mr D’s vintage dress waistcoat (probably 1930s, with 1950s alterations) to fit me. Alas, nothing would make his vintage tails fit, so I added a late 1930s evening cape as a wrap, and a diamante brooch. I was aiming for “Marlene Dietrich as vampire” look.
Well, hopefully! I think I need a white tie waistcoat, and a top hat to really make it work 😉
