ALT UPDATE | NOV

Staying up to date with current events in the alternative scene is an issue I’ve been hitting again and again lately. What am I kidding? It’s an issue I’ve always had! After finishing studying for the year I always come back to the internet and have no idea where to wander for inspiration! So, for anyone else wondering where to wander for some alternative
news and updates from funny videos to images from Whitby Goth Weekend,
here you go!

Female Buzzfeed employees dressed Goth for a week. Then their male employees tried it out!

Some of us just aren’t ready for Halloween to be over and I’m a hundred percent okay with this! The people over at Hallowvember are still sharing some awesome Halloween posts, starting with Rob Zombie’s personal Halloween Playlist!

In that same vein, get some inspiration for next Halloween with Mode’s 100 Years of Halloween costumes!

Do you read tarot? And if you do, do you read reversals too? I don’t, I’m still pretty new to tarot, but The Hood Witch has officially convinced me to read a little further into my future.

tarot readings are about becoming aware of what you are creating with
your current attitudes and choices. While some situations are more
difficult to change than others, every decision made and every action
taken is an opportunity to create a new future. – The Hood Witch

Did you know that the mansion from Crimson Peak was built from scratch? It’s no wonder it’s the best part of that film!

Whitby Goth Weekend just took place in Whitby Abbey (the place that inspired Dracula!). Here are some of their best dressed attendees according to Buzzfeed.

Historical witchmarks were found in the Tower of London, along with animal bones and other hidden objects.

Although ‘witchmarks’ are not particularly rare in historic buildings,
the exceptionally large number of them in the Queen’s House is very
unusual. It suggests that the people living in the Queen’s House felt
that they needed extra protection from the evil forces that they
believed were brought into the Tower by the heretics and traitors who
were confined in its prison cells.

We spend so much time talking about those in the subculture that don’t last, but what about when Goth’s grow up?

The Psychedelic Cherry gives us a lesson in creating your own music festival, citing her recent project psychedelic festival Orange Fuzz Fest.

More people should be putting on the events that they want to go to, instead of waiting for someone else to do it for them.

So, apparently the media has caught up to our love of modern witch style. But while they’ve labelled it the “chaos magic trend“, some actual chaos magic witches aren’t quite so happy.

Well, that’s it for me! What cool links or events are you harboring?

All images in this post come from their respective articles. The first is a screenshot from Women Wear Goth Fashion for a Week, the second is a still from Mode’s 100 Years of Halloween Costumes and the last is one of Buzzfeeds best dressed attendees to Whitby Goth Weekend.

    Loved that picture from Whitby, that woman looks amazing.
    I do not read reversals either, I found that it confused me and I fear it might confuse my querents as well, I do it at a pub, so the thread of concentration is not long. I would dig deeper in it but in due time,
    Alas, I do not consider Buzzfeed´s ridiculous, hot mess of a "gothic transformation" to have any connection to the gothic subculture, nor the online or the live one. Things take a different turn once you visit live gigs and festivals, and people dress completely different, not to mention in Berlin where nobody gives a damn about your drawn on eyebrows or synthetic dreads XD A moment of criticism from yours truly, but I love the idea of the post 🙂

    Brilliant! Really enjoyed some of these links. I thought the Buzzfeed thing was interesting, although I'm not sure I understand what the point was. >.<
