Pin-Up with No Pin-Up Gals

I’ve been into vintage and rockabilly fashion since I discovered it was a thing, at about age 13. My love of history and old things morphed into something that dictates my day to day style. Starting with one vintage style dress at age 14, and now able to do vintage hair styling and makeup. But […]

The Gothic Shoe Company – Winkelpickers Review

I found the London based The Gothic Shoe company through youtube vlogger It’s Black Friday (a favourite of mine, as you know). She highly recommended their boots, so for Christmas I asked my parents to get me a pair. I really wanted the four strap bat-buckle winklepickers in black patent leather, however that was not […]

Outfit- Old School Goth for The Damned

The Damned have been a part of my life for my entire life. There is a large framed poster of their album Phantasmagoria on the wall of the study, and I grew up watching The Young Ones so I remember them from the episode “Nasty”. But it wasn’t until about the age of 17 or 18 […]

Time for Another Adventure?

There is a shop in the Royal Arcade here in Melbourne called Spellbox, which as you may have guessed, is a magic shop. And not the magician/illusionist tricks shop, actual practical magic. Spellbox is your place to go for crystals, wands, magic kits, candles, and books on every type of magic and mythology you can think of. […]

Playful Promises – Review

Obviously in the end of year sales last year I bought quite a bit of lingerie. I was even talking to a friend and said that I’d gone a bit mad in the sales, not even mentioning that I bought lingerie. He straight away said “lingerie is always a good idea.” When I pointed out […]

A Bandit from El Rodeo

El Rodeo is a one woman Sydney-based online store selling clothing and accessories inspired by rock n roll, old school biker culture and the wild west from independent labels. Amongst the items in store are vintage cowboy boots, concho belts, patches, velvet shorts and, the main attraction, a wide variety of awesome t-shirts. I got myself three […]

Fuck Me Gently with a Chainsaw

So for a very long time, I’ve had my sights focused on being a costume designer. Those sights have kind of blurred in the past year, however I still love costume work. My work has never gone any further than high school musicals and plays. Even after I graduated, I was brought back to do […]

Haul – Boohoo.com

Anyone in the Goth community, especially those of the trad-Goth persuasion, MUST check out boohoo.com. Anyone who thinks that someone of a certain sub-culture must only shop at places that proclaim themselves to be a part of that sub-culture, like the many Goth brands out there, are kidding themselves. Boohoo is what you might call […]

Brecht and the Ramones

I have visited the crazy city of Berlin twice in the last few years, and both trips I have made sure to visit two places very close to my heart. A short walk away from each other in the area of Mitte, are the Ramones Museum and Bertolt Brecht’s grave and residence. I grew up listening to […]
