THOSE ARE ALL FABRICS AT JOANNS
I SEE THEM EVERY DAY AT WORK
I WANNA CUDDLE THEM 5 EVER
PLEASE THE WITCH CAMEO ONE
THREAT LEVEL: PUMPKIN!
(OMG the witchy cameo fabric! So cute!)
Oh god. What have I done.
I’ve volunteered to drive the StuntWife around to the craft stores this Saturday.
::brandishes stack of coupons::
YES, YES YOU HAVE! LET’S GET GIDDY ON CAFFEINE AND SUGAR AND HIT THE STORES! Oooh, I bet the Halloween-themed ghost Peeps are in stock somewhere!
(I think I need to make Halloween-fabric Gothic Heroine nightgowns.)
the amount of sass in this screencap is overwhelming
StuntWife and I.
"Oh no - another boy in Crow makeup. Tragic."
I might actually have a photo somewhere of the two of you in just this pose.
I’m betting you do. Because, well, yeah. That’s what we do.
I’ll be hosting a virtual yard sale here on Tumblr this weekend! If you want to see it, make sure to check the “#kellysgraveyardsale” tag! Conversely, if you don’t want to see it at all, make sure to blacklist the aforementioned tag. I cleaned out my closet recently and will be getting rid of things I don’t wear often or that no longer fit. Pictures will be posted with purchase details this weekend!
Just found this on Facebook and thought I’d submit it here
Judging by what I see on tumblr, you’re mostly the one yelling in disgust at the cyber Goth.
This picture is missing a neo-Victorian/romantigoth vampire lady, giggling behind a fan. IMO.
(The surly-looking guy on the barstool? That would be the StuntHusband.)
Anonymous said: Hello, I love your blog and book and you in general... But I was wondering, I am an AU size 12 (US 10, I think) and i always feel too big to be goth... Am I? Is there such a thing?
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO BIG TO BE A GOTH. Or too small. Or too anything, really. Yes, shopping for gothy clothing when you’re even on the fringes of “normal” sized can be tricksy, but let me repeat: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO BIG TO BE A GOTH. Anyone who tries to tell you that are wrong, are assholes, and should be skewered with an icy stare and then pointedly ignored.
Let me put it this way: I am usually a US size 14/UK size 16/18. Sometimes I fit into a US size 12, and there have been times when I’ve been a US size 18. Am I always happy with how my body is? No. I have fights with the Body Image Demons, just like everyone. But even if I’m not doing great at body positivity for myself, I will ALWAYS be a fierce defender of body positivity for everyone else.
(Hey, go look at plussizegoth - it’s full of beautiful gothy types!)
IGNORE THE BODY IMAGE DEMONS. THEY LIE. They always lie.
(Note: I don’t have things with Ouija or spirit board goodies in the house, because the RealHusband asked me not to, and I will respect that. But I LOVE the iconography. Love, love, love.)
[Gothic heroines] have to go against patriarchal ideals of feminine perfection so that they could release themselves from the passive role of the victimised woman.
Mister Ghost’s Monthly Parcel of Wonderment arrived yesterday! I know I’m biased about all things Dracula, but this is the BEST collection evilsupplyco has put together yet. Next month’s parcel is THE RAVEN, and is still available!
(It looks like Clovis and I are going to have to have a discussion with TinyDracula about who keeps possession of the deed to Carfax Abbey …)
I stumbled across these on Youtube and thought they were worth sharing:

A complete playlist can be found here. (According to the numbering on the playlist, there was originally a fifteenth video, but it seems to have been removed from YouTube.)
The Happy Bat Spirit Board with matching planchette - From our The Haeckel All Seeing Trading Company Collection. This is a limited edition of our smaller board design at 13.5 by 10 inches and is stained with a cherry wood stain. Each board is made at the time of ordering so it’s not sitting in our quasi-warehouse collecting dust. It comes with a matching tapestry wrap for the board and pouch for the planchette. The planchette is used as a pointing device as it’s smaller in size to accommodate the dimensions of the board. The board is given a sealing treatment than coated in wax to give it a smooth surface. The back features the edition information, edition number and signatures of the collage artist and the fabricator.
This particular board gets a quality assurance test provided by our Attic bats Luna and Rudolph Remington. They successfully contacted Rudolph’s uncle the most happy and cheeky Baron Von Squeek-der-Floof. Luna wants you to remember: *Never use a spirit board alone. You’ve all seen Witchboard right? Using a spirit board alone will result in you turning into Tawny Kitaen in drag.*
