Scenic picture time! This is a shot from a recent, very special Goth Day at Disneyland. Now in its 12th year, “Bats Day in the Fun Park” is an annual outing of area goths to the West Coast’s largest amusement park. Because why not? It sure looks weird, and they do have a haunted house there, so hey, Disneyland does have a wee bit of goth magic running through it, too.

There’s been a big reshuffle of desk space in our offices this week and The Frisky is now working where Celebuzz (another BuzzMedia property) used to sit, which means we have a bunch of random framed celebrity portraits just laying around. For today’s “What Are We Wearing,” I made everyone pose with their favorite.
Last night, Glamour magazine held the UK edition of its Women of the Year Awards. Kylie Minogue received the Outstanding Contribution Award, while Jessie J won the title of Best Solo Artist. “Downton Abbey”‘s Michelle Dockery was given the Editor’s Special Award, while Jessica Brown Findlay won Best UK Actress. “Britain’s Got Talent” judge Amanda Holden was awarded Best Theater Actress for her role in “Shrek the Musical” (did you miss that one?) and Dionne Warwick received the Icon award. You can see the full list of honorees here, and check out all the fab fashion above!
So … it looks like Sharon Stone had a good Memorial Day Weekend. The actress has been enjoying time with her new dude, 27-year-old Argentinean model Martin Mica. They literally seem to be head over heels for each other. It’s the kind of love that makes you wanna break out in a spontaneous yoga poses! That’s something special. The two engaged in some hardcore frolicking on Venice Beach yesterday. Click through to see more of their carefree day at the beach. I’m not even gonna bring up their age difference because A) Who cares? and B) I support people in states of pure, unadulterated bliss. I’m nothing but happy for them (and slightly jealous).

Beer sales are rising. Condoms are disappearing from school nurses’ offices. Yes, prom season is upon us! While some girls scouted the racks at Nordstrom (and at least one prom-goer scouted her local KKK office), other girls are busily sewing their own prom dresses. But I’m not interested in the normal-looking dresses that show skill with a Singer sewing machine; I’m more fascinated by the weirdo, hot glue gun-laden shit that looks like it sent someone home on a “Project Runway” competition.
I will spare you the 700 teen girls around the country who fashion their own dresses out of duct tape in an attempt to win $20,000 from the Duck brand duct tape college scholarship contest. You’ve seen one duct tape dress, you’ve seen them all. But here’s six of the weirdest other homemade prom dresses that have kept our nation’s quirky teens busy.
The Eurovision Song Contest is over, and we’re shedding a tear or two in its fabulously campy, irony-free honor. The international European song contest happens each year, and pits singers from each country in the European Television Union against one another for the best pop track. Broadcast around Europe and the former Soviet Bloc countries, Eurovision is the phenomenon that spawned both Abba and Celine Dion, so you know it’s good. Click through to meet this year’s winner — from Sweden, natch — and see some of the high-camp hijinks that happened during this year’s intense competition.
