Goth kinda at the Office: overtime in the content bug mines. But working from home means fresh blackberries and a drinky-drink!

The second of my nightgown designs - the Erzsébet nightgown! More daring than the Mina, and named in honour of the blood countess herself. 
Made of faux silk (because everyone wants their jammies to be cruelty free), it will be available in black or ivory, and trimmed with blood red satin trim, it’s guaranteed to lure any midnight vampiric visitors back to your bedchambers, as evidenced by the embroidered/beaded vampire bite on the right breast. 

The idea of having the Erzsébet style nightgown for a quiet evening of sipping absinthe, reading silly vampire books, and snuggling Miss Erzabet No Biting kitty is very enticing.

woeandisme said: Future Vampire Queen - I know you're happily married and I was curious when you got married did you feel the need to cut back or mute your gothiness for the event, if there was one that is? I am planning a wedding, which if all goes as I want, will be a spectacular goth affair with bats, and coffins and more. So I was just curious what your experiences where.

Let me put it this way:

It’s you and your beloved’s wedding, so it should reflect your relationship and personalities! Toddle on over to Offbeat Bride, because I feel it’s the best alternative/untraditional wedding info site out there. (Plus the people who are behind it are delightful.)

Haunted Mansion shop to replace Yankee Trader this fall.

I’ve enjoyed hearing from guests who are just as excited as me for the new Haunted Mansion products coming this fall to Disney Parks. As it turns out, Madame Leota and the 999 happy haunts from the Haunted Mansion attraction have also received your sympathetic vibrations. This fall, they are gathering to open a new merchandise destination in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom Park in Florida.
The new merchandise shop will be located in the current Yankee Trader shop, which will have its last day of operation on July 27, 2014. Inspired by Madame Leota, the new location will carry select items from the upcoming Haunted Mansion Authentic program including apparel, home goods, souvenirs, and more.
Final arrangements are still being made, so I invite you to keep watching the Disney Parks Blog in the coming months. I can’t wait to share additional details about this new destination for all things Haunted Mansion.

Here’s a first look at what’s coming

I need to go to DisneyWorld. I understand this.

Anonymous said: What's the difference between being a poseur and being new to the gothy culture? Sometimes it feels like the same thing... =/

Honestly? I think poseur is a term thrown around by elitist types who are feeling a teensy bit insecure about their “coolness” in comparison to everyone else.

The ONLY thing that would make me think “poseur” is if someone professed interest or knowledge in something but were fibbing in order to make themselves feel cooler. If you’re new to gothy culture, fantastic! Go forth and explore, and be thrilled that you will get to experience it for the first time! Don’t feel you have to act knowledgable and jaded; if someone mentions something you haven’t heard of, ask them about it. If they scoff at you or call you a poseur in response, the problem is with them, not you.

(There is no Elder Goth Cabal, and if there WAS, it would be more interested in introducing people to our spooky wonderland, not being cranky gother-than-thou gatekeepers.)
