This is why we generally have adult supervision. No matter what we may claim at other times, we are not grown-ups.

It has been decided that Halloween season officially begins on September 1 and lasts until 11:59 p.m., October 31. There is far too much to see, do, taste, touch, listen to, scare, hide and/or run from to contain within the 31 available days in October.

Thank you for your cooperation.

How much of the photos you posted on Nowthisisgothic is in the book Some Wear Leather, Some Wear Lace?
Only about 20. The book has more than 200 photos. It wasn’t the goal to transfer the entire content of this blog to a book, but to find photos that were quality enough to be published. Not for nothing we spend 1.5 years on research. 

Why is it worth it to buy the book?
Because a lot of images about goths floating on the internet are bad quality and the ones in the books are not?
Also, this subculture needs its own book after being neglected or harrased by so many writers. So no book written by someone who is at major distance and makes ridiculous claims about stuff (s)he doesn’t know anything about. Instead the writers of SWL/SWL asked people from back in the day to tell what it was like, and this forms the core of the book. 

My copy of Some Wear Leather, Some Wear Lace arrived yesterday, and it is a delight. It’s a wonderful visual compendium of the history of the roots of postpunk and early gothic.

The Halloween Tree is a childhood favourite of mine, a rare Halloween classic! Four friends travel through Halloween history to save the soul of their friend, trapped in that pumpkin.
