It’s a Big Hair & Beetlejuice kind of day!

Aqua Net & Koffin Kats!

I’ve been pretty lazy about doing my hair lately, mostly because my headaches have been so bad I just haven’t felt like doing anything with it… and because my wild curls have a life of their own- BUT, since I’ve got my car (1957 Savoy) back on the road I’m feeling more motivated to look the part! So today I got out the Aqua Net, put on Koffin Kats, and ratted and teased a beehive inspired do, then added the Bettlejuice hair clips I love so much (from Karloff Kouture on Etsy)!  And here is the result of today’s, Rockabilly/Psychobilly- or should I just say- Rockabelle Hairstyle! 

 Maybe I should show up early to pick up my son from school today, just to embarrass him- he’s always saying “Mom, do you have to do your hair like that, everyone is staring at you.”  They may stare or think I’m weird, but all the girls say how much they love it! (Besides, I’m not one to care if others don’t like it!)

Rockabilly and Psychobilly Tops by Psychodoll Clothing!

Super Cute & Super Affordable 1950’s Inspired Halter Tops!

As many may know- I LOVE ETSY!  Mostly because it is the best location to find such a varitety of Rockabilly and Vintage clothing and accessories, and in so many styles, colors, designs, and sizes!  Don’t get me wrong- there are plenty of brands not on Etsy I love also, but I also like that Etsy is full of Vintage collecting, wearing, loving, and DIYing people-  handmaking, upcycling, and treasure hunting to by and sell what they love!  With all that said I wanted to share one of my latest Rockabilly store discoveries that I am in love with.  The fit is one of my favorite, and the tops have a wonderful 50’s meets Burlesque vibe with modern Rockabilly and Psychobilly fabrics! These are some of my personal favorites by Psychodoll Clothing!

Rockabilly Wedding Cakes!- Part 1

 A few years ago when I started looking for Rockabilly cake ideas it was hard to find any- now that our Rockabilly Kulture is expanding beyond car shows and our clothing, and thanks to great websites and photo sharing sites like flickr, there are many more Rockabilly cakes to draw inspiration from for your own wedding.  I have found so many I will have to split them up into different posts of different styles within the Rockabilly Kulture: Rockabilly, Psychobilly, Dia de los Muertos, Burlesque, and Traditional Vintage/Retro.  There are so many great themes to get ideas from,  from red and black cakes to Elvis and Rock’n’Roll cakes, tattoo flash to pinups, leopard, zebra, polka dots, guitars, record players, skulls, spider webs, poker chips, dice, cards, classic cars, corsets, zombies, and everything in between.  I love these cakes and enjoy sharing them!

Rockabilly Dresses

Ticci Rockabilly Does it Again!

   Once again  TicciRockabilly  has made some of the cutest dresses the Rockabilly world has to offer! My favorite is the Night Cherry dress but I love all of them, even the Spider dress for those days I’m feeling a little more sassy and rebellous and want to look more on the Psychobilly side! Check the store out on Etsy, and don’t miss their great Rockabilly Maternity selections also!!

Devil Doll

One Bad Ass Rockabilly Chick! 

     Devil Doll singer Colleen Duffy has been rockin Rockabilly hits since she was 6 years old and impersonating Elvis for everyone in her neighborhood. She heard he had a daughter and, at her young age, convinced herself it was her until she learned the truth in second grade! Born and raised in Cleveland, she started her band Devil Doll  and Rockability, a rockabilly/psychobilly radio show, in 1990. The radio show was a hit and she was titled the first female rockabilly/psychobilly D.J. in the U.S.     In 1995  Devil Doll  moved to New York and became even more successful.  They now reside in Los Angeles and Devil Doll performs all over the U.S. and many places outside the U.S., from the House of Blues to Viva Las Vegas in Las Vegas. The first Devil Doll Album was titled “Queen of Pain” and the newer album is titled “The Return of Eve”. If you love Rockabilly then you will LOVE Devil Doll (if you don’t already)! I highly recommend previewing their music on You Tube, like some of my favorites- The Curse (…Stay away from MY man!), Liquor Store, and Sexy. Go to the Devil Doll website to check in on show dates and locations and to get all her songs.
