Dark Souls II Is Almost Here. Are you Prepared?

Dark Souls II: The character customisation and intense detail in the game is jaw-dropping.

Praise the sun, and prepare to die …again! FromSoftware is getting set to release Dark Souls 2 and you’d better get ready for a merciless butt-kicking.

As with its notoriously patience-testing predecessor, players will be plunged into a world of danger and despair, where they will have to exhibit a combination of skill, strategy and outright pluck to successfully navigate through the game.

The sense of unease and loneliness is amplified with death looming around every corner, and for online gamers, there is a constant threat of another player invading your quiet little world at any moment. You can’t sit and hide by the bonfire forever.

With gorgeous graphics contrasting against the harsh settings and events of the game, a vastly improved online and PVP combat system, and a much more intricate focus on enemy A.I, Dark Souls 2 is shaping up to claim more souls then ever before.

Dark Souls 2 will be released for PS3 and Xbox 360 in just under two weeks on March 14th, with very limited special preorders still available at Game and Amazon. It has been announced that the PC edition will be released on April 25th.



As my blog is all about alternative fashion, I thought I might as well upload the photoshoots I did for my fashion coursework, including the photos I didn’t submit. I’m lucky enough to have some very lovely people in my life, thank you girls.

This is Holly.

Welcome to the blog!

Hello there, and welcome to my blog: Leather, studs and lipsticks.

I chose this name as it sums up the kinds of things you might see on here: alternative and gothic fashion, but with extra emphasis on aspects such as beauty, etc.

There will also be occasional features regarding heavy metal and rock music, as I believe hard rock and metal go hand in hand with gorgeous gothic/alt fashion!

Basically, it’s a site for those interested in alternative and gothic fashion to have a mooch about.

The blog is mainly for my university coursework, but I hope to find the time to put a lot more content on here than just the basics.

I’ll be posting reviews, photos, assorted lists (top tens, wishlists, etc), recommendations, and lots of other bits and pieces.

If you want to know more, you have any suggestions, or you wish to contact me for any other reason, please visit my About page.

Thank you!
