And everyone, let's just take a moment to appreciate the BEAUTY and WONDER and JOY that ARE THESE AMAZING BOOTS!! They are fucking purple. Yes. I know. Amazing.
I'm going to tell you a little story about these amazing purple boots. They are my mourning gift to myself. I saw these on eBay last Friday morning before work, and I thought about them on and off, but I didn't really think much about buying them even though they were only available on the docs UK site and here they were on American eBay. So then My Chemical Romance broke up, and I am sobbing so hard I can't see straight until 3am. At around 3am, I decide I need to make myself feel better. I need something to make myself feel better. A present. To stop crying. I bribed myself to sleep with these boots and a Black Parade tee shirt. I purchased them at 3am on Saturday morning the day MCR ceased to exist, and I went to bed for four whole hours before I woke up, started crying and decided to go thrifting, too. Which ended up being in my favor because I looked so terrible I think the girl gave me 50% off everything I bought just to make me feel better (I looked at the receipt later and there it was, 50% off everything).
I didn't know you could cry so hard your lips turn purple for the day, but I did. It was kind of amazing.
And don't take this story as a sad one (or think I have a shopping problem, because I don't). Killjoys keep running, and to keep running and keep fighting we need bad ass gear. If I were a Killjoy, if I lived in the Zones outside of Battery City, these would be my boots.
