My latest goth diy projects

Lately I have been wanting to do some new DIY projects with my worn faux leather jacket and my old tights. My jacket was becoming quite old but I wasn't ready to get rid of it because I like wearing clothes until they are completely word apart. I got some paint and decided to recreate the 80's goth club, Batcave logo on my jacket. I drew some spider web design on the front collar and safety pinned some cool horror patches on the bottom along with attaching my skeleton hand hair clip and sticker. 

With my tights I wanted to create some simple arm warmers/gloves so I measured and cut then cut off the waist band so as not to waste the fabric and it made for a lovely little neck warmer (not pictured here) I also cut tiny thumbholes for my thumbs. I hope you enjoy these and it gives you some cool ideas. Don't worry about having a stencil for your painting if you don't have one. I didn't have one. I painted mine free handed and it got rave reviews. Enjoy and happy DIY-ing :D

Twin Peaks

Twin Peaks has always held a special place in my strange heart. Spooky, fascinating and trippy, David Lynch's iconic masterpiece is getting a comeback this April so naturally I had to pay homage to this brilliant director and awesome series. If you were anything like me you might have had a crush on agent Dale Cooper. This series had such an effect on me in the 90's. I'd rush home to watch the series whenever I could. From the sexual, eerie undertones of Audrey Horne to the kooky log lady and many other characters, Twin Peaks will always be one of my favorites. I love Lynch's other works like Mulholland Drive, Blue Velvet and Lost Highway. I own all of those plus Eraserhad and others but I decided to do a fun cosplay series of a few of my favorite characters on Twin Peaks: Dale Cooper, Audrey Horne and Log Lady. The show is  a way to this goth girl's heart and yes I did have a damn fine cup of coffee whilst shooting these stills. I hope you enjoy!

Goth in Las Vegas

 I recently went on holiday to Las Vegas and had a lot of fun. It was a great time. Our friends treated us to a huge suite at The Venetian. It was rad! We are going back in a few months. I can't wait! I will try and vlog more. If you haven't checked out my youtube channel and subscribed yet please do. Eternal Wynter

My trad goth inspired jacket

A finally finished my trad goth/death rock inspired jacket and wanted to share it with you guys. I got the blazer from HM shop and found various patches and buttons from all over the place including a cool record shop near town where I currently live now. It was a lot of fun. If you look closely you can also see the leggings I made myself as well. Do you DIY if so? What kind of things do you enjoy to make? I love seeing other people's creations.

Goth band HAUNTED HAUS and 80's revivalists.

I wanted to show off a fun video by the band Haunted Haus. I wish I had discovered this band a while ago.  This video is from their seminal 1988 album "Goth As Moff"  The song is called"Sad Party" that is kind of a takeoff from fun goth videos back in the day. I talked to one of the dudes in the band who told me he eats fruitarian style which is rad! Love to other vegans :) He filmed the video with vhs and it really takes me back to 80's 90's era. It was a fun watch. They did a throw back to the 80's satire video that was so fun to watch. I love the weird, grainy footage and the chorus will be stuck in my head lolz if you are an alternative like me who does not take yourself too seriously then you might enjoy this band and video. Check their youtube out here: HAUNTED HAUS

Other tracks you might dig are Goth Forbid,

Here is a link to their facebook as well: Haunted Haus facebook

If you are interested in purchasing their album here is their bandcamp: ALBUM

I want to talk about other 80s revivalists. If you happen to be a goth or alternative person who is obsessed with that era I'd love to get to know you. There is something grungy, dangerous, glam and wicked about that era. I grew up as a kid and always admired all the punks and goths I met. I aspired to be like them and I loved bands like Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cure and many more. I hope this post can inspire some of you to get your best 80's on. I love the fashion, the style, the diy, the music, almost everything about that era. If you search on instagram you can find a plethora of young and old who are still stuck on the 80's. With the resurgence of badass Spielburg-esque gothic style 80's shows like Stranger Things it is a sign that this era is not dead. I love watching elder goths talk about their experiences on youtube.

I love 80's revival bands :D and the 80's of course. Here is a pic of me dressed all 80's inspired:
