CORPORATE GOTH

another one?…

So, walkawayinsin - perhaps you’d like to share some examples of what you think outfits that retain a goth edge yet are appropriate for corporate office jobs should be? Because to ME, those are all very nice examples of corporate goth style.

I’m one of the lucky ones - I live in Seattle, which is notoriously laid-back about personal style, and I work in the tech industry, where the quality of your work is more important than your hair color. But there are thousands of other goths who do have to have a more corporate/business-casual appearance. How do you suggest they dress? Do you have any wardrobe tips for them?

Today’s mail seemed to have a certain theme …

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

My Chemical Romance | Vampires Will Never Hurt You

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?

Ruthven would like to inform you that not only is he Very Pretty, tummy rubs would be a Very Good Thing.

Good, Bad

Bad:

  • The return of the sinus headache. I know, trepanation is not a viable option.
  • Nightmares last night. Dear subconscious, SHUT UP.
  • The weather continues to be hot and sunny. Ew.
  • A tragic lack of Phantasmagoria-era Dave Vanian or Revenge-era Gerard Way bringing me cupcakes and more coffee.

Good:

  • Coffee coffee coffee. Thank you, RealHusband!
  • ethermaiden gave me a sample of "Mourning Ritual" by LVNEA, and it’s lovely. It’s like BPAL’s perfect “Blood Popsicle”, with additional rose notes.
  • Working from home means kitty snuggle breaks.
  • MY COPY OF ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE ARRIVES TODAY.
  • The wonderful ladies at Rituel de Fille sent me a box of treats, which means I have new makeup to play with and review! (The “Shadow Self" lipstick is amaaaazing.)

Halloween season.

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?

Greetings,

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.)

Other clothing stores that have a gothy sensibility and offer plus sizes are Holy Clothing and ChicStar.

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. :)

“I used to sigh. Then I set out to make people notice me, and I started to grin." <— The StuntHusband speaks the truth.

Okay, but holy shit, THIS IS UNREAL.

This is amazing, and that Pumpkin King makeup is a thing of unsettling beauty.
