Source Firstly, I’d just like to link you to a Amy from the Ultimate Goth Guide’s ‘World Goth Day’ giveaway. There are two hand crafted pretty lil’ pieces for give away so go have a little look and be sure to enter. Goodluck! Driving in platform boots is an issue I’ve been thinking over for a few weeks or so and after googling it I’ve found that some people do…

Well, yesterday my best friend Kaylie’s birthday present arrived. My other best friends Xary and Sary (Yes, one of my best friends has the same name as me AND the same nickname, also.) and I had each contributed money to order Kaylie a custom made respirator which she had wanted for a long time and constantly stated that she wanted but would never be able to afford. It was my…

To be honest, I bought this powder well over six months ago but I’m guessing my opinion has only depended. Manic Panic is one of the most commonly associated brands with the Gothic subculture. It was first started by two sisters, Trish and Snooky, whom started a alternative cosmetics business and has since then bloomed to one of known Gothic cosmetics brands around. Honestly, if you’ve ever stepped inside anything…

Source Growing up Creepie is a children’s cartoon about a girl, named Creepie Creature, whom grew up like any other child minus the fact that her whole family are various assortments of bugs. Try not to visualize that birth, trust me. Growing Up Creepie is essentially a mainstream cartoon but does contain various Gothic traits. Here are my few points on why I think it Growing Up Creepie represents the…

Source The Cog Is Dead is essentially a steampunk band but an underlying theme of the band is their fictional back story. Each song is set with different steampunk themes and their ‘costumes’ are amazingly detailed. As obvious the Steampunk genre influences the band heavily but The Cog Is dead also draws inspiration from Russian Folk Music, Rock n’ Roll, Ragtime, Punk Rock, Reggae, Showtunes and Movie Scores combined, as…

Source I first found this band while amusing myself with a little light reading of Carpe Nocturne. The band is influenced by such as The Cure, Skinny Puppy, Bjork, Sioxsie Siox and the Banshees, Bauhaus and more and are said to be beloved by those whom have an interest in The Birthday Massacre and other such dream pop. Bella Lune is described as electronic and sounds like a fusion of…

Today I finally got around to redoing my nails, after last time of doing one hand red and forgetting about the other hand. I don’t pay much attention to my nails usually, apart from a Burgundy or black coat and generally looking after then. To my surprise, a while ago I stumbled across a picture of some nails that I loved and I knew I would have to do it!…

Yet again, playing around with my make up. I’ve been focusing more of green and dots lately, mainly because my usually blue contrasts with my hair too much for my preference but that’s beside that point. The firs thing I had ever bought from eBay was a pot of sparkly green eye dust (Don’t ask me why? I honestly have no idea.) that I had never used until today. Green…

Of course we can’t spend everyday wearing corsets and platform boots, with hair that stands six foot tall… unfortunately. This is just an outfit that I wore to hang out with some friends yesterday, a casual everyday type of thing.  Outfit:  Blouse: Goth Angel, but I did cut it apart. Skirt: Dead Threads Socks: Kmart? Singlet: Kmart  Jumper: Kmart? Wow, I’m practically a walking Kmart advertisement. Well, hope you enjoyed.…

Gothic Beauty I’ve been browsing around the internet for some Goth Fashion magazines to pick up and noticed that there wasn’t much of a variety being discussed, usually only Gothic Beauty. I thought I’d create a short list of some interesting current and somewhat popular magazines. Gothic Beauty Gothic Beauty is one of the most popular alternative fashion magazines around the world but it is also one of the most…

As a simple five minute trip to eBay often entails; I was only looking to see a phone my boy friend was considering and BAM, I’m suddenly considering buying a second hand Gallery Serpentine riding coat, an under-bust corset and some Demonia platform Dolly shoes. Why must my self control be so restricted? I’m able to force myself to sit for four hours and write a whole essay including editing…
