Day Two: Share photos and experiences of your babybat days.

      Oh dear. I suppose like most of us, I've destroyed  the majority of my babybat photos. Some of them are quite horrendous. On top of that, my computer crashed recently, and I was unable to save anything on the harddrive. So, I've currently got my old photobucket account opened in a different window, ambiguously hoping there might be a few strays that were left. Or not. Lol, I'm surprised I even remember the username and stuff. Syn-Gates_4ever. Oh dear. ~.~

      Ok, so there are some photos left (I think quite unfortunately). I can't believe I'm going to post these. I'll put them in order from oldest to the end of my babybat days.

Oh yuck, this picture makes me cringe. This was pretty much the first time I ever realized I could take pictures of myself. And they were bad. Let alone the makeup job.

Shortly after the first picture was taken, I went to a salon and got my hair cut. It's not surpising that they screwed it up. This was taken as soon as I got home. And then after a few pictures, I realized the back was too long and the bangs were not right, so I took a pair of scissors and fixed it myself. Did a surprisingly good job. I haven't had anyone else cut my hair since.

Yup, I acquired these shoes from a thrift store (there were like 2 sizes too big) and began collecting lots of striped socks (no matter what colors they were), and I wore this geddup frequently.

Ya, I know the quality is horrific, this photo was taken on the crappiest picture phone I've owned. As for the picture itself... I had ended up (accidentally) dying my hair black. (My mother says I'm not allowed to dye it black, so I bought the darkest dark brown they had. And this happened.) This is actually the day I dressed up as Alice from Twilight to go to the B&N premiere party thing for when Breaking Dawn came out. The outfit is old and new. The corset part was something I bought at Hot Topic for $40. And then dress underneath was from a thrift store. And I still own and wear both.

This sums up my entire freshman year. I saw him the first week of school and fell head over heels. I never thought he'd even look at someone like me. And we ended up dating. (only for two weeks I might add) See, at this point, I'd never had a boyfriend and wasn't sure what to do with one once I got him. But it was wonderful all the same. As you can see, I was getting a little better as a babybat, though still wearing the Hot Topic corset. =P

A year later, I went blonde. I was still into goth, as you can see by the black and white stripes and jack skellington shorts. =P, but I had the urge to have platinum/white hair. I currently still have blonde hair, but a few months ago, I decided to grow it out back to my brown, and then dye it dark from there.

Ya, I was doing scene some days. I thought I was on the right track though, my shirt in this picture says 'I heart creeps'. And I still have it. =P Though its been through some moderations via scissors.

This was actually ON Halloween (no, I didn't just get magically brave enough to wear this casually to the mall. But Halloween let me get as creative as I wanted with makeup and opened up my mind to ideas. As for the outfit in this picture (you can't see much), but I'm wear a little chain jacket, some elbow length gloves with straps, a black corset, and a black tutu, ALL came from Hot Topic, dear me. The tights that I'm wearing came from the Halloween store. xP I still own all of this.

This picture was actually for a skellanimals contest I found on facebook. You had to take a picture of yourself with all your skellanimal products and send it in. Not only did I set up my own skellanimal photoshoot in my bathroom, resulting in this picture, I ended up winning the contest. =]] The prize was, wait for it.... skellanimal stuff! I got like 20 skellanimal stickers (that I still have, unused, and are in my wallet right now) and I got a Skellanimals beanie, that I never wore, so I gave it to my littlest sister. She likes it.

At this point, I was getting better and more creative with makeup. As well as better at taking pictures of myself. It's nice to see that there was some growth during my baby bat days. =P The pink bathroom in this picture, however, was not mine, it was at a friend's house. (My bathroom at the time was rubber ducky themed). And I'm wearing my jack skellington matching tank top and shorts pj set. Which I still own, and am currently wearing the shorts right now. =P

So ya, I've posted all these embarrassing babybat photos, hoping to help babybats grow up and out of the iffy stages. xP oh dear.


  1. Hello there!

    The last photo of you is cute and the others aren't as bad as they could be. I should really think about doing this challenge. Right now on my blog i'm doing the lolita challenge. You can check it out if you want.
    I'm going to follow you.

  2. As far as babybat pictures go those aren't bad! They could be a whole lot worse! I consider myself a babybat but I'm hoping to avoid any horrendous blunders XD I think I'm pretty much on the right track.
    By the way, I've nominated you for the Dark Sunshine Award :)
