Sci-Fiery

What I wore to a sci-fi themed evening... the fiery colour of my Jedi-esque chiffon robe battled the cruel force of nature that is Darth Winter... twas a mind trick of course.  Since when has chiffon kept anyone warm?

I am a sci-fi freak.  Some would say freak full stop.  Forget the moonwalk though.  I wallwalk.

If we're on the topic of interplanetary, space cadet stuff... I'm curious... what's your Sun Sign? 
I say say 'sun sign' because Indian astrology divines via moon signs.  Even if you don't believe in that "mumbo jumbo", go on, just play.  Sun sign, star sign, zodiac...

So...What's your Sun Sign?  And...are you what your sign says you are or should be??

Me first.  I'm an Aquarian. 
And... yes.  Oh yes I am. 
I'll go a bit further and share that I'm Aquarius [air] with Leo [fire] rising, which makes me an eclectic, reserved extrovert.  Occasionally full of know-it-all hot air but otherwise burning with life and always 'up'.  I am very warm but am perceived to be distant or aloof.  I am a humanitarian but people confuse me.  I believe that peace cannot be won without a fight.  The pursuit of knowledge is my life's search.  That and an opera-length black velvet, cream satin lined hooded cape.
....and this makes me swoon a little...

Your turn.

An Aquarius... no wonder looking at the water rejuvenates you!

I'm a Leo :) http://mysticmedusa.com/category/sun-signs/leo-sun-signs/ This is quite true (embarrassingly!)

P.S. you make a great Jedi ;)

Tanvi said...

Oh! The Diva is back! Love the first two poses... I am a cusp of Aquarius and Pisces ... and I feel I have the characteristics of both ... But I am more inclined towards Pisces.

Hi there! I just stumbled upon your blog - you are so pretty!!! I'm a HUGE sci-fi lover, and am always doing weird futuristic photo shoots. I'm excited to say I'm your newest follower!

Leah said...

That's cute... may the 4th be with you. I'm an Aries... and I believe that's why I'm stubborn and so hard-headed. I think my birth sign also influenced my leadership skills in a very positive way. :-)

I want your orange chiffon coat. xoxo

bollywoodstylediaries said...

I am an Aquarian too!!OMG!!!I too come across as aloof although I think I am very warm:-) but I can be bitch at times:-)

thats a very bright outfit against an equally bright wall!!

Vintage Vixen said...

I don't know about chiffon keeping you warm but, Dusk, you do look damned hot in that orange number and I'm loving the twin brass bangles, too.
I'm Sagittarius, apparently full of energy, adventurousness, versatility with a love of travel. I'm also a fire horse with an inclination to live life on the edge.

My darling, you look absolutely amazing here!!! This colour compliments your gorgeous skin tone and I love love love those shoes! I am a cancer as you know, how interesting to read about your sign....you are perceived to be distant or aloof because you have a very enchanting, sensually mysterious vibe... ;)

suruchi said...

Yup..moon walk is such a passé...
Wall walk is the next big thing...and so lemme try that at night...
Though would have to look for equally bewitching clothes first to evade my beloved from thinking that I have gone bonkers;-)

A “reserved extrovert” is a wonderful term...and so were all the other interpretations of you...
Well, I am the confused Libran...ever so trying to reach the balance!:-)

Stavy said...

Hi Dusk,

Also an Aquarian with Cancer rising. Horoscope Within says "You are dreamy, with a psychological nature that is oriented towards nostalgia for things past, towards your mother and your family". This is me spot on! It should also says friends/boyfriends!

I love your blog very colourful. The yellow sweater and blue print skirt are my faves! Who takes your pictures?


I found you via GFY, my absolute fave website of all time!

Ciao for now,

Stav
