I don’t like the Orb, but otherwise this is fun!

Ready to revisit my tragic hair metal past! I will never stop being amused by this dress from killstarclothing (Sun hat = VITAL, as it’s an outdoor amphitheater concert.)

The Lady of the Manners, gothiccharmschool, reading The Raven. When we told her about this month’s Mister Ghost Parcel, she sent us this wonderful video.

Having met madam, Atticus is convinced her email was sent with a flurry of hand gestures and delightful noises.

Lady Venters is a cloud of night floating on pink twilight, a pleasantly haunted icon teaching us all fantastic lessons about feathers, big skirts, grace, and the pleasures of embracing one’s cliches.

Atticus is not wrong about the email being sent with flaily hand gestures and squeaks of glee. Because this month’s Mister Ghost Parcel has the theme of The Raven, which is a thing of spooky joy!

Goth Kinda at the Office: The”glamour shot”, and the candid “no really that file structure is kind of … something, but I don’t know what” reality.

Throwback Thursday! From the early 90s, when I worked in Retail Hell. Halloween meant being able to go to work the way I WANTED to look. Which, of course, included a top hat, lots of eyeliner, black lipstick, and fangs.
(I still have that giant ankh pendant.)

Yesterday over on Twitter, delilahsdawson and @cmpriest were having a “retro goth off”. I figured I needed to share one of my photos from a NOLA cemetery. Halloween 1994-ish, I think? 
On that trip, I stayed at the house of the goth band Falling Janus, and went to the Anne Rice Halloween Ball as a guest of the harpist for Trio Nocturna. The entire trip was very, very surreal. Fun, but weird.

For Throwback Thursday: SDCC 2009. Yeah, I got to meet one of my rock star crush objects and give him a copy of the Gothic Charm School book. I will always be the tiniest bit proud that I was able to talk like a rational adult with him, because the fangirl part of my hindbrain was pretty much just going "eeeeeeeee omg he’s prettier in person eeeeee".
