It was directed by Ed Wood, a directed famous for his eagerness to direct, but failure to make anything seemingly proffessional, later immortalised by Tim Burton in the film Ed Wood. Saying all that I loved this film. First I watched Plan 9 from Outer Space,…

Finding Your Signature Goth Makeup Look

It takes time to find a signature Goth look whether that means big stompy boots or thin pencil skirts.

Goth Prom Night | Outfit of the Day

Last night Sarah and I headed up to a local bar for their monthly drag night. Before nightfall we just managed to take these pictures (that’s why they’re a bit grainy!).

Do you ever crave a new hit of dark fashion? I got to wondering a couple weeks ago, where did all the amazing Goth fashion bloggers go like The Ultimate Goth Guide and Juliet’s Lace (at least we still have The Everyday Goth!)? Unfortunately for most of us, life has got in the way. You might have noticed that I’ve been a little abscent, what with two jobs and University…

THE CRAFT INSPIRED OOTD

Ever since I got this Reformation turtleneck I thought it needed a little school skirt, witchy boots and dark makeup to make a totally The Craft inspired look. What do you think, did I pull it of? While figuring out this outfit, I conjured up images of Bonnie in her high turtleneck trying to cover up her scars. Plus a little little bit of school uniform. Because who how needs…
