Apple slices with caramel, rose lemonade with St. Germaine, a red velvet blazer that needs to be altered, and the DVD of The Great Gatsby. How’s your Wednesday evening?

OH GOOD HEAVENS I WANT THIS. 
How much do I love the term “vestigial bustle”? Quite a bit. 
gdfalksen:

1888 Afternoon dress by C.E. Lee, Boston. Maroon velvet and ribbed silk, hand-stiched and machine-sewn, vestigial bustle built into lower back area of separate petticoat to provide skirt fullness. Princess-line silhouette. Eight pieces make up the bodice, a testimony to intricate tailoring. Via Memorial Hall Museum.

Hi there!

Louis didn’t really think this big rebellion thing through…

I’m pretty sure the StuntHusband and I had a very similar exchange of dialog during one of the vampire LARPs.

fatnutritionist:

I don’t exercise, I go on goth walks. To goth walk, you need: high-heeled boots, a long dark coat, black eyeliner, and to walk dramatically through the woods while listening to Depeche Mode.

My dramatic walking music of choice is either Floodland by Sisters of Mercy, or The Black Parade by My Chemical Romance*. But otherwise, this is my preferred exercise routine.

*Okay, anything with LOTS of bombast and loud guitars, so The Damned, The Mission UK, HIM, or Within Temptation would also work.

HelLO eye candy!

Blood popsicles. SWINTON. Hiddleston. This movie is going to be ridiculous, and I can’t wait.

wintergirl1613 asked: How do you deal with the ridicule of people against goth?

Ignoring it, mostly. I mean, if people are ridiculing my gothness, they’re not people I wanted to associate with anyway, right? So why bother?

I personally feed off of it, a light appetizer, knowing I have sucked some small portion of their time and energy away from whatever hopes, dreams, and ambitions they may have.

Yes. Give into me your notice. Give into me your time. All the less you spend living.

Because I am one fabulous mother fucker looking for the approval of no creature — living, dead, or divine — and all who look upon me with love or hate pour sips of their life’s essence into the pool in which I draw strength.

I’m with Atticus. Their ridicule is Stage 2 envy. And I sip their envy like fine wine.

I’m going to bring in Jillian. The three of us are gothy versions of Statler and Waldorf, dressed as witches from Macbeth, heckling the haters.

When Jilli and I still worked for the game company that makes D&D and M:tG, we would sometimes go to the mall for lunch and to shop.

Dressed for a night out.

Parents would yank their children out of our way as if we were about to consume them. Mallrats would heckle and we would just keep walking, laughing VERY LOUDLY.

We have your attention?

Perfect.

I remember a trip to Disneyland with Jilli, Real Husband, and another goth friend. At one point on Main Street a couple of people were clearly walking towards us. I have no idea what they wanted but I had a feeling it might not be good. Once they were about arm’s length I stepped forward and said ” I’m sorry, they aren’t signing autographs today. They just want to enjoy the park. I hope you understand.”

We then walked off leaving some very confused people in our wake.

People ridiculing me are entertaining. I smile sweetly at them and walk past them secure in the knowledge that I’m having FAR more fun than they are. Remember what Adam Ant sang: ridicule is nothing to be scared of.

There’s still no U.S. release date for this movie yet, is there? DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND I NEED TO SEE THIS MOVIE.

girls fighting evil: the mean girls

you can’t sit with us

(oh, they’ll save you. with a bored look in their eyes and a quick flash of claws, they’ll free you from the clutches of murderous demons. they’ll quip at the demon, make it feel weirdly bad about itself before killing it. then they’ll look you over once, flip their hair, and leave you there. you’re grateful, but kind of insulted at the same time.)

Ah-ha! Thank you, Rhaveyn!  “Black Fever by Polly Morgan, 2010, is a cluster of crow wings inspired by Eadweard Muybridge’s photographic images of motion. Seven strata of wings gradually unfurl like a Mexican wave, demonstrating the rules of flight.” - The Art of Taxidermy by Jane Eastoe
