Goths and Femininity.

On countless occasions I’ve been told that I’m not a ‘girly-girl’ because I dress in mostly black. This idea is completely ridiculous! Since when does a colour dictate your femininity? The number one definition of feminine is “Belonging to the female gender”. Well, that’s a check, though it isn’t always true. The second, “Having qualities traditionally ascribed to women, as sensitivity or gentleness”. This one I question a bit but…

Yesterdays Face!

Mum bought me a new lipstick yesterday! It’s in the most perfect shade of plum, one that I’ve been searching for for a long time. It was on sale at the chemist she visits every week after visiting the cemetery. There are a few things that are somewhat worrisome about it though. The lipstick is Loreal Paris, Studio secrets in Plum. I remember reading something about Loreal Paris using animal…

Yes, I’m a brand name Goth.

Okay, the title is an exaggeration. I’m far from a brand name Goth. In last weeks Poll of the Week we discussed Goth brand names and it’s connection to DIY. You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t yet posted the proceeding article on that yet. The reason for that was that I had no idea what you guys would like to hear! So, I finally came up…

New Years Goals

 Either drop advanced maths or apply myself. Please. I don’t want all of my English subjects suffering because I’m too busy having constant panic attacks about Maths. At the same time I don’t want to let my teachers down. Commit to a long term goal. I want to aim for something in my life and be passionate about it. I want to be able to work towards that goal. Calm…

Types of Body-modification

Source  This is in response to my Poll of the week on body-modification. It’s a very picture heavy post and is not for the faint of heart. Though I’m not going to be discussing anything to do with genital modification because, well, just because. Body modification is very present in the alternative scene but of course there are a lot of mainstream loved body modifications for example: ear piercings and…

Goths and Gamers: Connections, Stereotypes and the Truth about NET.GOTH’s

This is a response to my poll of the week about the connections between gaming culture and Goth culture. In which the results were quite obvious. Goths and Gamers and other such somewhat rejected cultures tend to be brought together not only due to their rejected nature but also because of their interests, of course. What the poll showed was something I had already imagined with 77% of followers choosing…

Colour Coordination (Image heavy)

This is relevant to the poll of the week on what colour you like best to mix with black. I wasn’t not shocked at all to find the top three being purple, red and then black on black. Closely followed by green. So, how am I going to relate it to a post about colour coordination? Well, I know all my followers have impeccable fashion taste and don’t need little…

Link This is in response of the Poll of the Week about dating outside of the subculture that can be found on the right side bar at the top.

Then…

Layering: Tips

Source – Texture in practice! This was a suggested article by an anonymous user; if I remember correctly. I honestly do read all your comments but I don’t always have time/know what to say in response! I’m not always very good at communicating. But I hope this answers their suggestion. Layering is a somewhat important aspect of most clothing styles especially the Goth and Grunge looks though both in very…

The New Death and Others: Review

Okay, I know, I know. A lot of people have been reviewing this book as of late. I’ve tried not to class with too many other people. But I doubt my opinion of going to be much like the rest and I’ve been putting this post off for too long. The New Death and Others is, of course, a wonderful book. There are some lovely references to Egypt through out…
