I’m attending a Velvet Acid Christ show next month, and I’ve been researching different makeup techniques to try. Youtube has a plethora of videos available full of makeup ideas. Here’s a few that stood out to me, that not only are good for your local gothic industrial night, but might give you a few ideas for Halloween makeup too! Enjoy!
Love the feathery eyes on this tutorial…
Awesome lips on this one!!!
Marilyn Manson makeup in two parts – including a tutorial on how to hide your brows!
An eye look I’ll probably emulate for the show, but with a pale lip instead of red.
Another gothic look (speedtorial) – more glued down brows and tape to get your eyeliner straight!
Hope that keeps you all entertained for a while! Ta!
Took a trip to Michael’s to pick up black dye for some clothing experiments I’m hoping to try. I picked up a couple containers of RIT liquid dye, to dye a pair of dark grey jeans and a pair of heather grey arm warmers to black.
I also have a sheer shirt in this burnt orange colour which I used to love, but now I just don’t wear it at all anymore. I’m not sure if it’s nylon or polyester or what, so I decided to try and find iDye Poly fabric dye and give it a whirl… unfortunately only Joann’s has it, so I had to make a second trip to Joann’s to get it.
The plus side of getting to go to Michael’s is hitting up the last of their Halloween clearance – yay! It’s my favourite holiday of the year. So I picked up a few things:
16 (two eight packs) Coffin Shaped note cards with envelopes: $3 ($1.50 each)
Hexes & Curses witchy box: $4
Skully candle holder (currently containing a glass candle that I also bought on clearance at Michael’s a few weeks ago 3/$10): $4
I got told by my partner I can’t spend any more money for a while 😛 So that’s all for the time being. Ta!
I have been a member of the goth/punk/rivet community since 1991, and while I might not “dress the part” so much now, my heart is still with them. In honour of Halloween, I’d like to share some goth related videos, and other goth related articles and outfits throughout the month of October.

Hi, folks! Went to Plato’s Closet for the first time today and was really impressed with the sheer volume of clothing and accessories they sell. First I perused their bags and purses. I saw a few things I liked, but I didn’t want to spend $12 on the cute plaid messenger bag (maybe I’ll go back and get it another time). I saw a pair of Cons that I considered getting, but skipped it this time. The men’s jeans were all too big and baggy for my tastes, so I skipped those too. I hit up the huge wall-o-tshirts, and found a few that I really liked. I also picked up a purple plaid button down shirt, and a small shirt for my partner’s teen daughter. Instagram pics below:
Purple Plaid Button Down Shirt – Cost: $3
