Apparently my breaks from unpacking and doing laundry are going to involve searching for velvet witch hats. Yes, I still really want an elaborate, sumptuous witchy hat. 

(Bottom two hat from EvercrumblyAndWitch, top hat from HoHoHats.)

I swear, there is some sort of weird link in my brain between “feeling down*" and "searching Etsy with the keywords ’90s goth’ then frothing with rage.” Not a GOOD link, no, but this seems to be a default when my mood is … not great. 

Also, I will never, never understand the “logic” behind Etsy’s search algorithms, because I am completely at a loss as to how an oversized, denim-collared, button-down shirt made from an American flag turned up in ANY search including the word “goth”. Just … no. Stop. 

*Nothing worrying, peeps. It’s just that Mother’s Day is now a day that makes me very sad.

Just a little preview of the items that will be up for purchase in my Etsy Store “The Dandy Prince”, which will open on my Birthday, May 11th!

Follow my blog or my page to get updates;The Dandy Prince 

In 3 days, my Etsy will open!

Hello ladies and gents! 

My Etsy store is now open!

The Dandy Prince

If you see an item that you want to purchase that is on my facebook page The Dandy Prince but is not listed, please message me and I will list it so you can purchase it!

The reason I’m making an Etsy is because I am being kicked out of my home, and have nowhere to go, so please signal boost, I need all the help I can get. I only have two months left in this house.

One, these are all delightful items. Two, the theblacklacedandy is a darling creature in a very difficult situation, and needs some help. Go forth! Buy pretty things! Help a good person!

I want a Goth-themed bingo card for Etsy browsing. One with spaces for “goth”, “steampunk”, “grunge”, “90s”, “witch”, “punk”, and so on. I’m trying to figure out how to assign extra cultural appropriation points for keywords such as “g*psy”, “bohemian”, or “tribal”.

DONE. Feel free to edit.image

YES! Thank you, merryandgloomy.

Hey look! There’s an ankh dagger necklace on Etsy. Quick, someone buy it so I stop being tempted to. (The main reason I haven’t bought it is because it’s similar enough to another one I own that I don’t feel I HAVE to have it. Plus, it’s not exactly like the one from The Hunger.)

Look at these beautiful things from thecryptofcuriosities! I’m very tempted by the ankh in the batwing cameo setting. (Of course I am.)

Beautiful Gothic items available to buy from my store.

ribbonthegreengoblin wrote to me to let me know that she’s listed some family heirloom glass  for sale on her Etsy shop. Look at those antique whiskey decanters! An an antique glass biscuit jar! If I didn’t have Kittens of Chaos who knock everything off of any flat surface they can get to (and aren’t supposed to be on!), I’d get some of those decanters.

And now, “vintage goth” on Etsy that I like

Pointy-toe flats with big buckles! Wait, I think I have that exact pair of shoes in the shoe armoire. 

A black men’s tuxedo tailcoat! Traditionally worn by goths of any gender! Which reminds me, I need to do some more D.I.Y. work on the incredibly battered/deathrock one that a friend gave to me.

A collection of vintage lace and jet jewelry pieces! I am telling myself RIGHT NOW that I do not need these, that I have oodles of similar things in the crafting stash upstairs that are awaiting D.I.Y. inspiration to strike.   

A basic black gothy dress with bell sleeves. This would be really darling with b&w stripy tights and some long necklaces.

Big black hat with a bow and cameo. Just in case you don’t already have one. 

The ubiquitous stretch panne velvet “fit & flare” dress. The listing doesn’t say, but I bet it was made by Jumping Joy. I think I still have this dress, somewhere in a box of early 90s goth nostalgia. 

Silver spiderweb and spider ring & bracelet. (Look, I’m fine with spiders as long as they’re sparkly and DON’T MOVE.)

Silver ankh earrings. I don’t have to explain this to you peeps, do I?  

Big black ruffly poet shirt! A staple of the gothy wardrobe for any gender.

Hmmm. I may make this a thing: occasional posts of Auntie Jilli -approved “vintage” Goth from Etsy.

More question answering

Is that the shirt by the Infamous BlueJay? Do want!

Actually, today’s outfit involves the striped Bastian shirt and ascot by Kambriel! (And yes, she’s wearing my top hat in that photo. That photo shoot was so much fun!)

If you’re looking for elegant and whimsical clothing, save up and purchase something from Kambriel. Her work is exquisite, and the lady herself is one of the dearest people I know.

We need an Etsy keyword bingo card

We really do. Because I just found a listing with a title and keywords including "80s 90s Goth / Steampunk / Grunge / Rockabilly/ Floral / Plaid", which I think means I would win Etsy bingo. I shudder to think what the prize might be.
