The end of luxury is nigh....

By the end of this weekend, I will officially be a nomad, living in a mobile dwelling consisting of a mid-size pickup truck with a camper shell.

This is the outside of our setup. And to be honest, we haven't gotten very far on it. The camper shell is at least bolted onto the pickup bed, but it's still full of holes so it's nowhere near water-tight and since it's been raining almost non-stop we've hardly been able to work on the damn thing. We also need to get our sleeping platform built....we have a twin mattress to set on top of it, but the damn thing is too long and needs to be trimmed shorter. Plus we need to put legs on it so we can store our stuff underneath.
Unfortunately, we have little in the way of raw materials and easy access to power tools, so it's been rough. And the clock is ticking - we have to have our shit built, our stuff packed, and be out of our current home at the end of THIS weekend.
There's not much any of you can do to help with that…

Some More New Items!

First up, a ton of new items added to my storenvy and quite a few more to come, so please stay tuned for that. I took the liberty of modeling some of these items so they can be seen worn instead of on just a hanger. I really hope that helps sales and views on my shop - I need all the money I can get at this point, we're running low and we'll be homeless at the end of this week. That's right...this week.



For those who like the darker and edgier styles - I've got some great items that would work well in a Goth, Punk, or even Strega/Dark Mori wardrobe. Check 'em out! http://castlebyth3sea.storenvy.com/




Plenty of lighter and airier pieces for the Mori Kei, Natural Kei, and Umi Kei enthusiasts. Perfect for a stroll through the forest or a walk along the beach - a lot of these items are light in color and made of soft and breathable fabrics, which is always good for the summer months.  http://castlebyth3sea.storenvy.com/



Some of the original garments are still for sale,…

Beige and Cream for Spring/Summer? I've got it here!

So I've added some really nice new pieces in a LOT of cream, off-white, and beige hues, which are perfect for layering pieces in your standard Mori Kei and Hama Kei coordinates. Everything on my site is currently under $20 too, so it's quite a steal to nab something right now.

Even my brand name pieces are on sale.

April Showers bring May....road trips?!

Trigger Warning: self harm, suicide

Welp...

I think you all are due for an update, especially since my posts are probably gonna get even weirder or even more sporadic in the next few months than they are now. And this is why.

For the past several months, some of you know that I'd been living with my partner's family in their home. Back in October, they put the house up on the market and even though it didn't sell at the time, pretty much everyone hightailed it out of here - leaving me with only my partner and his dad. These two do not get along at all - they scream at each other, they've almost come to blows a few times, and he's constantly calling the cops on us (for mere arguing) and threatening to get restraining orders/kick us out. It's been tense, it's been depressing, and I actually starting seriously contemplating suicide again. I think I might have done myself in too, if I hadn't resorted to simple self-mutilation - I have more scars these days …
