Goth Gift Guide #1

The holidays are nearing closer!
I'm not a big fan of holiday hype... but I do participate in some activities because my friends and family enjoy the holidays.

And there are certain things that are enjoyable... right? Hot coco, apple cider, cookies. Food in general....
but I digress.

Part of the holidays are gift giving. Which is incredibly difficult to do sometimes. So here are my gift suggestions if you have gothy friends, perhaps this might give you a good starting point.

I'll probably make more of these guides, it's kind of fun. Next up, gifts for the artsy people.

Any suggestions on what kind of people you need help buying for?

Pink Goths: What are your thoughts on Pastel Goths?


I thought the poem was fitting.
I decided to talk about pastel goth today.

Basically pastel goth is goth with baby blues, lilac and pastel colors mixed in.See Below:

The Pink Look

The Pink Look by goth-proxy featuring a pink pantyhose

I feel it is heavily inspired by traditional goth, fairy kei and Lolita styles. However, tt strays away from the extreme accessories of decora and fairy kei and is lighter than traditional goth. 

At first I was not a fan of pastel goth, but I have to say it's kind of growing on me. Gasp! I've even acquired pink clothing.

I know many condemn this sort of style to "Nu-Goth" or "Hipster-Goth." While some openly embrace the Nu-Goth style and label, it is generally seen as an insult to be described as such. to me, the label seems arbitrary... I've never been able to figure out what the difference between a nu-goth and a regular goth is. Except the nu-goths often have less dramatic (unteased, not necessarily black) hair....

Anywho. I kinda like Pastel Goth.
What are your thoughts? Is pink and pastels your nightmare or delight?

Things to share:

This made me giggle, so I thought I'd share it.
(Personally really glad that "goth fashion" has grown to include tank tops and shorts).

Ottawa Zombie Walk 2013

Zombie walk this year was a blast.

There were so many amazing costumes. Some were incredibly creative and unique; zombie princess of doom, zombie dogs, mutants of all kinds. And of course there were the obligatory zombie brides, nurses, zipper faces and silent hill characters. Marching through the streets in this hoard was fantastic, and I can't wait for next year.

How about you? Have you ever paraded around your town in fake blood as part of a zombie walk? Let me know in the comments!
