My wand is a Fountain Pen and my cauldron is a Tea Cup.

Elegant and slightly feral. In other words, what I think of when I think “nightmarepunk”.

Pretty amazing 1975 board games for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the Haunted Mansion. Via and everything else. More vintage Disney.

There was a Haunted Mansion Game. Why do we not have this in our possession.

HAUNTED MANSION GAME.

The conversation in our house when this surfaced on my dash.
RealHusband: “I know what show that’s from, because I recognize that clock image! It was one of the weekday breakfast shows!”
Me: “You mean they made him get up during daylight for an interview? Poor baby.”
RealHusband: “He probably just stayed up all night. He has the look of someone who did.”

Swint or Slude | Stolen Babies

Love, love, LOVE Stolen Babies!

One of my favorite styles of coats. From Atelier Boz, I’m assuming.

I just looked around Black Baccara’s Etsy store, and they have some lovely-sounding scents! Other perfumers that might catch your fancy:

OH MY G-D SHE’S FIVE NOW. And adorable.

I don’t think any vampire movie will ever have a better opening set of scenes.

Big-ish hair and burgundy lipstick before heading off to a family dinner. 

(Dear NARS, bring back your liquid-to-matte lip color, please? ESPECIALLY the color “Chandernagor”?)

Tonight’s horror forecast calls for vampire flocks roaming the streets and countrysides.

SWINTON as the Angel Gabriel. Perfect casting.

I loved this moment. Gorgeous and unsettling.

Anonymous said: Hey Auntie Jilli, my dad's been looking for some creepy antique stuff, ouija boards, animal skulls, things like that. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for online shops like that? Thanks for the help!

Oh, do I have some suggestions! 

  • While Gargoyles Statuary doesn’t have antiques, they have statues, candle holders, creepy art, and many other treasures. 
  • Gothic Rose Antiques is one of those stores that make me long for an unlimited amount of spending money. (Warning, their site autoplays music. 
  • The Black Broom is where my pewter Vlad Dracul buttons come from!
  • Necromance was, as far as I know, one of the very first stores to specialize in morbidly eccentric decor, antiques, and dead things. I try to visit them every time I’m in L.A.
