Anonymous said: Do you answer non-anon asks privately?

Kinda-sorta-maybe? There’s a multi-level answer to this:

  1. I can’t answer all the asks I’m sent, because there is not enough time. Hell, there’s not enough time in the universe for me to answer all the mail that’s sent to the main Gothic Charm School site! (Honestly, not being able to answer all of the mail is upsetting, and I don’t talk about it because of how upsetting I find it.)
  2. Tumblr doesn’t always give the option to answer asks privately. Don’t ask me why, I haven’t a clue as to how the mysterious Tumblrbots decide which asks to randomly put “answer privately” on.
  3. I don’t answer rude or mean things, ever. I giggle at the notion of asking the StuntHusband or stabbingcontest to answer those messages, because they are both terrifying masters of vitriol, but I won’t ever give into those notions. 

littlemisscodeless said: Dear Lady of Manners, I want to watch The Addams Family, but I´m not sure if I should begin with the 60s or the 90s version of the show. Which would you recommend?

If you’re watching the TV show, start with the 60s version, absolutely.

Be sure to watch the movies, too!

State of the prep for tomorrow’s Time Travelers Rummage Sale:

  • Fabric & assorted trims for the Bags! Of! Mystery! are all in one (huge) bin now, with all the other Mystery in a separate bin. 
  • Supplies for Elder Goth Surprise Bags all in separate bins - magazines/CDs/books in one, makeup in another, ephemera and ~things~ in yet another.
  • Tonight: FILL ALL THE BAGS!

Signs of an Elder Goth?

the-glamour-ghoul:

You’ve seen the “Goth Look” get co-opted by mainstream fashion so many times that you no longer get snarky and dramatic about it- instead, you patiently wait for the trend to fall out of vogue so you can score great clearance items.

"Seven dollar black lace shirt? Yes, please! Clearance bin of patterned fishnets?? SCORE!"
