Emilie Autumn - My new icon

Remember Mrs. Lovett from Sweeney todd? She was the baker who concocted the meat pies and was eventually shoved into the fiery oven by Sweeney himself. Well give her a violin and pink-ish/red hair and you would get Emilie Autumn. She is a 28 singer/songwriter/poet that thrives under the genre "victoriandustrial". I just want to mention that as I am typing this, I'm trying really hard not to cry at her amazingness. Really. I am going to find my inner lesbian, marry her, and spend the rest of my life staring at her because she is just that fucking amazing.
Anyways her band "Emilie Autumn and the Bloody Crumpets" are fucking amazing and she has also played violin for Courtney Love. Emilie also has a clothing and textile company called Willowtech house.
Her website is simply smashing! She even addresses her fans as "Dear Muffins". There you can also see a lot of her pictures. I had quite a difficult time picking just picking 3 pictures (see above). Her fashions are infectious and addictive...they're like everything I know, yet they're like nothing I've seen before. I guess what I'm trying to say is that her style truly is Victorian, Gothic, and Lolita blended into one, and is therefore the epitome of this blog and why I fucking live.
I think I will leave you all today with this:
"Come join us in our padded cells as we suffer together and enjoy victoriandustrial tea parties. Let us play dress up, write poems on the walls and scream LIAR from the rooftops. Let the record show.. you have entered the Asylum and there is no escaping..."
