Good heavens, this is LOVELY. You are a stunning creature.

The perpetual Tuesday lament:the oh my G-D how early? Tuesday conference call has left me in dire need of more caffeine. And I really shouldn’t do that, because I’ve got another oh my G-D how early?! conference call tomorrow morning.

The “haunted dollhouse” image IS by Norman Bridewell!

From an adorable children’s book called The Witch’s Catalog.

This seems like something both evilsoutherngentleman and I need. Eventually, when the Eldergoth Retirement Haunted Mansion becomes a reality, there will be a massive combined library, and it will be GLORIOUS.

I feel like I should know this. That art style is familiar.

How many of the costumes were “made from scratch” and what percentage are vintage?

I cannot say the exact percentage, but where possible I used vintage clothes. In other cases, I used pieces of authentic embroidery, lace, or buttons that I found in the London vintage market, applying them on corsets or dresses made with new fabric. I also used vintage men’s jackets, waistcoats, scarves, and hats when the actors measurements and characters would permit.

The Kitties of Chaos. Should I be worried that they’re trying to create some sort of summoning circle?

Happy Birthday, Tim Burton! (August 25th, 1958)

"I’ve always been misrepresented. You know, I could dress in a clown costume and laugh with the happy people but they’d still say I’m a dark personality."

Happy birthday, Mr. Burton.

Kiss of the Vampire - Gary Oldman necks Winona Ryder for the December 1992 issue of Premiere magazine

Nicole Stavenau challenged me to do this. I made a donation, but I also agreed to go through with the ice water. I’m not challenging anyone specifically to do this, but I AM challenging everyone to donate - time or money - to causes close to their heart.

In traditional belief and fiction, a ghost is the soul or spirit of a dead person or animal that can appear, in visible form or other manifestation, to the living. Descriptions of the apparition of ghosts vary widely from an invisible presence to translucent or barely visible wispy shapes, to realistic, lifelike visions. The deliberate attempt to contact the spirit of a deceased person is known as necromancy, or in spiritism as a séance.

Witches

Witchcraft (also called witchery or spellcraft) is the use of magical faculties, most commonly for religious, divinatory or medicinal purposes.

The belief in and the practice of magic has been present since the earliest human cultures and continues to have an important religious and medicinal role in many cultures today.

"Magic is central not only in ‘primitive’ societies but in ‘high cultural’ societies as well…"  X
