This is strangely charming. 

viα quarkmaster: Capturing a Vampire’s Portrait by LawrenceMann

This is strangely charming. 

The most frustrating part of this whole wisdom teeth extraction thing isn’t the solid-food-thwarting-me thing, but the fact that it has left me so wiped out. Yeah yeah, surgery, having bones pulled out of my jaw, and so on, but still! I did not expect to still be feeling weak and exhausted almost a week later! I’ve got Stuff To Do, dammit! 

Today’s goal: job hunt, write a Gothic Charm School post, and maybe do some laundry. With minimum nappage.

I really just need to learn how to crochet, don’t I? Because then I could get the pattern and make this.

New Lestat book?!!?

Hello! I was wondering if your excited for Anne Rice’s new book to come out. It’s suppose to be a true sequel to ‘Queen of the Damned’. Prince Lestat ( I love the name of the book)
Have you heard that Anne Rice is [likely] coming out with a new book about the vampire Lestat? Because I feel honor-bound to tell you if you haven’t.
::SHRIEKS:: NO, I HAD NOT HEARD THIS YET! 
… I’ll be right back, I need to go light some candles in the hope that it’s better than Blackwood Farm or Blood Canticle. 

Life is about surviving things, appreciating nature, nurturing kindness & friendship.. and dancing.

And being vampires, apparently.

Anonymous asked: What would you say if my personal mental nickname for you was 'Fairy Goth-Mother'?

I would smile delightedly. Other people refer to me as their Fairy Goth-Mother, and that is my official title to my godchildren. :)

The second promotional poster with date for The Goblin Market presents The Carnival Obscura at The Steampunk World’s Fairr on May 16th, 2014 in Piscataway, NJ. Please feel free to share it around in your travels.Design by Egregore - The Art and Design of Aristotle PramagioulisFor tickets: http://jme.ticketleap.com/spwf-2014/t/fbg/The Goblin Market is an exhibition and staged show event that deals with a darker and fictional interpretation of what we refer to as Victoriana (1830-1900), and directly succeeding eras that blend surrealistic themes within a historical context. It draws symbolic inspiration of the Christina Rosetti poem of the same name in the concept of other worldly beings interacting with a human audience to create Faustian deals.The Goblin Market also reinvents the term “goblin” from its fairy and fantasy roots from folklore and legend. Rather than creatures of mischief and mild mayhem – these are elusive and otherworldly beings that have an insatiable desire for deal and bargain alike. The purpose of these deals is to slowly strip the human rube of their humanity and in some extreme cases, their life.Please note: This is the VIP Event for The Steampunk World’s Fair on (tentatively) the Friday night of the weekend - May 16th. VIP Tickets for Steampunk World’s Fair are required for admission.The Goblin Market’s interpretation of these otherworldly occupants is different than the fairytale renditions. They appear as though human although gaunt, dressed in bizarre arrays of anachronistic fashion, and in some cases have very distinct yellow irises. By their attire and couture they appear interested in Victorian, sideshow, carnivale, and funerary styles. Within their possession, they carry on their person strange, rusted adornments about their clothing that harbor occult purpose. Within their wares are some of the strangest and most curious relics and items. And every item, adornment, or object of fancy is available for trade.There is unspeakable darkness that clings to the Goblin Market. It is shrouded in mystery, fear, and excitement. Our souls long for wonderment that breaks away from the monotony of our daily lives even if it means sinking into the darkest parts of our hearts. The desire that dwells in those dark pits that grant our defining humanity seem immortalizing to these Goblins – the Autumn People, The Beings on the Other Side of the Mirror – and everywhere they go, insidious smiles at bewildered faces of patrons of all sizes, shapes, and creeds are bound to follow.We invite you to come dressed in the more macabre fashions of Steampunk and Victorian fashion and revel in this most unusual show.

Oohhhh, I wish I could be there. Totally not possible with my budget or schedule, but it sounds like a fabulous event.

Anonymous asked: Are you a feminist?

I believe that all people should be treated with dignity and have equal rights. HELL YES I’M A FEMINIST. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to any of you.
