Those Are Some Killer Heels You Have There, My Dear

Gianni Barbato’s boots with skulls at the top of the heels are some serious you-know-what kickers. Definitely a perfect fit for the upscale girl with a penchant for the gothic look, they ain’t cheap — marked down from a whopping $870 to a mere $609 — but they’re sure to score their fair share of attention. I could absolutely see the fashionably daring Rihanna rocking these spooky stilettos. [Haute Macabre] Keep reading »

Don’t Have Your Halloween Wedding In Sleepy Hollow

A few years ago, a vaguely goth friend of mine got engaged to her boyfriend, who is so gothtastic that his name might as well be Azrael. The two of them planned a pretty non-traditional wedding—they wanted to fly to Transylvania and get hitched in a haunted castle. But when they told their parents this, their plans got the kabosh. They ended up getting married in Ohio, instead. Today, I saw another story about a spooky wedding dream that got the smackdown. Lisa Panensky and Jim Nieves have been planning their wedding for over a year. They signed a contract to exchange their vows in the Old Dutch Church in Sleepy Hollow, NY, which you may remember from Washington Irving’s creepy tale, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. But when the reverend heard this week that they planned to play the theme song from “The Munsters” during their ceremony and that they were going to wear costumes, he canceled their wedding and sent them a refund. What a party pooper. What’s a Halloween-loving couple to do? [AOL] Keep reading »

Elvira: Then And Now

Does anyone around here remember Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, the valley girl/goth goddess who introduced B horror films on “Movie Macabre”? (Maybe, if your parents were cool enough to let you stay up and watch that much cleavage scary movies on late night TV.) Cassandra Peterson has been making the morning news rounds since it’s that time of year, and we are suddenly so very nostalgic for all the sexy goth style she spawned. [NYC, 10/29/09] Keep reading »

The Bear Trap Necklace (For Girls Who Bite)

Feeling a little … bearish? If you’re looking to get your fierce on, nothing says, “Come here, no, wait, go away!” like a bear trap necklace. This fully functional (but we hope not too functional) pendant comes in oxidized black or polished sterling silver on a 25-inch chain and is, online store Lost at E Minor claims, a “bane to miniature bears everywhere.” It’s not cheap — $240 — but at least you know you’ll be safe if a miniature bear (or something bigger) tries to take a bite out of you.

Topshop Goes Goth: Do We Like?

It’s Halloween in July, apparently. “Horror Girl” is a new, mostly black, mostly lacy collection at Topshop, the U.K. (and now U.S.) clothing store. They’ve got a white vest with “Be Afraid” across the front, a blazer with the words “Vampire Kiss” written in blood-red on the inside lining, and burgundy, five-inch studded platform heels fit for a hooker’s rise from the dead. If only their quasi-goth looks were apropos of the “Twilight: New Moon” release, like at Nordstrom, but the flick’s not out until November. Maybe Topshop’s simply trying to steal customers from Hot Topic? [Topshop Horror Girl Collection] Keep reading »

It’s Not Easy Being Goth. Especially in Hot Weather.

Confession: I was kinda Goth in high school. Every Saturday night, I got out my black dress, fishnets, Doc Martins, slathered on the black eyeliner, white face powder, and vamp lipstick, and headed to my local Goth club to do the pain dance. Why? It was the best way to show the world how I felt on the inside—slightly dark and a wee bit odd. I’ve outgrown the phase, but let me tell ya, it’s not easy being goth. Forget being an inky soul in a world of full of people who can’t understand your damage, but getting dressed in all that gear is practically a full-time job. And then there’s summer—every Goth’s nightmare. Hot weather, sunshine, and happiness abound. A new blog, Goths In Hot Weather, is here to show us what Goths do during the summer months, and it certainly is not cute, my friends. Still, I just can’t stop looking. After the jump, favorite hot Goths from the site. Keep reading »

How To Go Goth

When I was in high school, the kids who wore the same three colors every day — black, dark black, and darker black — were the freaks. They had piercings everywhere, listened to Marilyn Manson, and smoked cigarettes in the parking lot during pep rallies. But right now, Wednesday Adams and her gang are having their day in the sun — while keepin’ it pale — as the fashion world recommends going goth this season. After all, black is a slimming color.
