Being a witch means being able to look at completely random stuff you find and thinking, “I could use that,” all the time.

Can you take this spike?
Will it fill our hearts with thoughts of endless
Night time sky?
Can you take this spike?
Will it wash away this jet black feeling?

freakbutno said: I am a 17y/o girl who love gothic fashion, but i don't know how to better transition into it? I used to wear fishnets and creepers/combat boots alot, but I also like color in my wardrobe. Also, do you know any stores that sell plus size(or XL regular) alternative clothing?
You can mix color in your wardrobe and still be considered Goth. I throw in midnight blue (pic below), pink and red from time to time. I do not know of many stores in particular that cater to just plus sizes since I am not a plus size myself. Two that I can think of off the top of my head that you can use some items from but isn’t specifically created for Goth Fashion is Torrid and for online www.GoodGoth.com (Plus Size Goth Clothing).
Not Torrid. Torrid has gone on trend. You’re better off buying black stuff and gothing it up with hosiery, accessories. If you can sew try looking at some goth sewing stuff.
gothiccharmschool Jillian what goth beginner easy sewing tutorials am I thinking if? AGF? Something like that?
There’s the old alt.gothic.fashion FAQ (a.g.f = GAF!), which has a big how-to section. Antimony & Lace is entirely about gothy DIY sewing projects. (The "tatters and rags" project is what started me on the path of madness that is the never-ending nightmarepunk skirt.)
Monstrous Bodies: Feminine Power in Young Adult Horror Fiction, by June Pulliam, McFarland, 2014. Info: mcfarlandbooks.com.
"Recent works of young adult fantastic fiction such as Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga have been excoriated for glamorizing feminine subordination. However, young adult horror fiction with female protagonists who have paranormal abilities suggests to female readers the possibility of resisting restrictive gender roles that are presented to them as natural and therefore immutable. In this type of fiction, the “monstrous Other” is a double with a difference, a metaphor of the adolescent girl in Western culture who is pressured to embody a doll-like feminine ideal which is untenable because it deprives her of agency. Monstrous Bodies examines three types of female monstrous Others in young adult fiction—the haunted girl, the female werewolf and the witch—and considers what each has to tell us about resistance to feminine subordination in a supposedly post-feminist world, where girls continue to be pressured to silence their voices and stifle their desires in conformity with contemporary ideas about what it means to be a good woman. June Pulliam teaches courses on horror fiction and adolescent literature at Louisiana State University and edits Dead Reckonings: A Review Magazine for the Horror Field and is the author of Encyclopedia of the Zombie. She lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana."

Things I am currently filled with covetous longing for:
Everyone who grew up a nonconformist in a small town knows that sigh.
I don’t even live in a small town and I understand that sigh so well!
I used to sigh. Then I set out to make people notice me, and I started to grin.
The StuntWife needs to tell the stories of us going to shopping malls and just walking around. :)
