theeverydaygoth:

Am I the only one who thinks a somewhat decent get up with skulls or bat accessory is extremely cheesy?

Not in the slightest! But I like cheesy as you can probably tell from my two most recent Polyvore sets so my opinion is invalid.

It depends on the skull or bat accessory! ::Looks down at giant vintage Alchemy Gothic necklace laying on my cravat:: But then, since I have gleefully crashed through the cliche barrier and camped out somewhere on the other side of it, my opinion is possibly suspect.

(Also, I have a large black lace bat applique on the back of the blazer I’m wearing today. BECAUSE I CAN.)

An important lesson

Roderick and Madeline (and the rest of their murder) really, REALLY like Count Chocula cereal. 

(What? It’s not like I can eat it right now, and the idea of feeding gothy cliche cereal to the neighborhood crows is so delightfully over-the-top that it had to be done. HAD TO.)

I’m telling myself that it’s okay I don’t have the spare spending money for this version of a bladed ankh pendant, because the design isn’t quite to my tastes. But that obsessive, "collect ALL the ankh dagger pendants!" part of my brain is still wibbling a little bit. It’s okay. I own my cliches, and part of that is being selective about aesthetic and design details. (Or so Pete and the StuntHusband keep trying to convince me.)

Questions I ask myself, while packing for the Vampire Ball: “Self, where did you put the necklace made from the antique straight razor?”

ENJOY many of the Goth cliches? Of course! That’s why cliches BECOME cliches - because they’re so fun they endure forever and ever.

Full Confession: I actually enjoy many of the goth cliches. I think it’s fun, in a way.

On the other hand, I’ve owned these (and the matching 3-piece serving set!) since 1997, so it’s not like I am bereft of gothy silverware. (Yes, that’s the Good Silver that is saved for fancy occasions.)

iampandora said: how many of them do you already have?

Copies of Dracula? 12. Including, yes, the tie-in for the Coppola movie that is based on, but not really, the original novel. I have this ridiculous dream that some day I will find a 1st edition of the novel hidden away in some thrift store. That, and a 1st edition of Something Wicked This Way Comes.
