Confessions of a Vampyre

Tomorrow is up early off to get my hair colored day!!!  Yipeee!!!!  

I remember when I first started coloring my hair.  It was back in the 80's,   when I began my life as a Vampyre.   Back then it was because I just wanted my hair colored, unlike today where it is a necessity for the grey that is coming in. 

I remember the video that got me on the quest for the look that I needed to have, it was Dead or Alive's "Something In My House" video.  It is black and white, Pete Burns is running around an old house.  And I thought he looked gorgeous.  Gorgeous like a girl gorgeous, not gorgeous man, would you call him a man?  Anyway, I wanted to look like that.  Only of course the female version, but again, is Pete Burns really a man??   So I got the hair, the clothes,  and I got my eyebrows tweezed just like that,  I thought he was fabulous. 

Although have you seen him now a days??  He has had so much plastic surgery he looks like a duck.  Pretty sad, as he was such a gorgeous man/she,  now he looks like Joan Rivers with a duck bill.  Why Pete why did you do that to yourself???  It saddens my 80's girl heart....

So unlike most goths out there who fashioned themselves after Robert Smith or Ms. Banshee herself, no I had to go for the disco diva Pete Burns goth..  but oh was he beautiful.   That doesn't make me gay does it, as he is a man after all, isn't he??????????  I just like my men a little on the pretty side I guess...  as when I first met Satan he was wearing makeup.   But he was more of that Guns n Roses type o' guy, would you call them pretty??   Axel was kind of pretty in their first video, with his big hair.......but that is another story all together.......

I cannot comment on that guy...because I don't know who he is...back in the 80's I was having my Madonna/Prince phase...

I want to get my hair done sooo bad!. I swear my roots are at least 2 inches now, and I want to get the underneath a dark brown (maybe black, maybe burgundy..still unsure).

Covering grey is a bitch and makes me feel old even though I don't look it. I have seen Pete Burns' dreadful plastic surgery - what a mess. He was luscious back in the day, with loads of lip gloss. I recall he had a wife and a boyfriend.

People have accused me of being a gay man trapped in a woman's body. Maybe that's the appeal of Pete.

Oooo so you like metrosexual men. Hey, they are pretty and take care of themself. I too like these men, but I got stuck with a redneck. Love is blind....

bunny said...

Ha - my yuppie sister married herself a big ol' NASCAR loving fried bologna eating redneck, too. WTF?

Brand New Lover - on my first mix tape from college!

yes, I do like my men more on the pretty side, although I don't think my husband is what you would call a metrosexual, he looks like he could have been in Guns n' Roses or the current Velvet Revolver, but he was part of that makeup wearing 80's glam boy look, which I always loved!

I hope your hair comes out just the way you want it to!

How'd it turn out?

I just got my ususal black color with a sebastian cellophane of black orchid over the top. I was thinking of going red, but my hair would be too fried by the amount of bleach it would take to lighten the black out of my hair, it's not worth it. So maybe red or blondish highlights next time, if I can stand the wait that it will take to put highlights in my hair...
