The Golden Gods

The Golden Gods

As I mentioned in my previous post, Gary and I visited LA and man our days were packed.  I’ll eventually get around to posting pictures from the entire trip but for now only the ones for the award ceremony are done.  I had planned on writing this nice long post about the show but I think I’ll let the pictures do most of the work. I am warning you now, this is pretty heavy picture post.

Golden Gods Awards Outfit

So, what does a lady wear to a heavy metal awards ceremony?  Well something that is black and sleeveless letting me show off my tattoo (yeah I admit it), it also needed to be classy and comfortable because I did not want to be fidgeting all night. I wanted to wear pop of red, but the red tights on their own were a bit much for me. Layering the black dotted fishnets toned it down just enough and I brought a pop of red into the tophalf of the outfit with the flower.

Outfit Details:
Dress: eShakti
Red tights: We Love Colors
Fishnets: Torrid
Shoes: Fluevog


This black dress was the last one I was able to purchase from eShakti before they stopped Canadian shipping…again. I absolutely love it.   It has this gorgeous wide pleated collar and one pocket which came in super handy to hold my small camera for the night. I thought Gary looked quite handsome with his vest, army pants and fedora. It is one of my favourite looks that he wears. Please forgive the slight blurriness in our picture above, and Gary’s stiff pose. It was the best of a bad bunch.

This is our one group shot of the night with Justin and Paige, our partners in crime.  Justin works with Gary at Rue Morgue, and together they created the amazing poster for the evening. You can actually see the spiderweb brooch I am wearing instead of a necklace. I have been on a brooch kick and I do not see it stopping anytime soon.

Here is the infamous poster!  Pretty rad, eh? That’s Josh between Gary and Justin from Revolver Magazine (and he also puts out Royal Flush). Josh was the one to set us up with the VIP passes for the ceremony. He and his fiance Mara are some of the most genuine people I know and I love it when we have the opportunity to hang out with them.

The VIP lounge at the Nokia Theater was pretty swanky. It was also decorated with some of the art Gary created for the poster. We got there pretty early which is when I took the photo and an hour later the place was packed. I am so tempted to name drop but that just seems silly so let’s just say that I had to remember to act cool even though I was having a few drinks beside some of the biggest names in Rock.  Just look at the line up of presenters and performers and you’ll know who I mean.

Now last but not least here are a few photos of the performances we got to experience. Some of the bands were new to me but each one blew me away.

    You looked great! I feel like you did something different to your hair, and I like it a lot! Also, I’m completely jealous!

      Thanks Veronica! You can really see my side swept bangs a bit more in this picture. Also, I have some clip extensions which adds some bulk and length to my curls 🙂

    Of your night, I meant. Not that I’m not jealous of your great style:=)

    LOVE this look, and the dress is fab on you. I’ve done the fishnets over colored tights thing, too, and I love the effect. Everybody looks so gorgeous. I’ve lived in LA for 13 years and have yet to attend a glamorous awards event. …Then again, that’s not really my thing. But it looks like you guys had fun.

      @thirtiesgirl Thanks so much! This was probably one of the most glamorous events I’ve ever been to and I had a great time, but a large part of that was because I was spending it with some really amazing people. Do you enjoy living in LA?
