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:

Shop Punk Rave!

Punk Rave is an awesome gothic shop with punk, Gothic Lolita and I first discovered them while shopping online. One of the really beautiful gothic pieces I own is from Punk Rave. Their shop is unique and their clothing is well made and can easily fit into many different goth subculture styles. It is hard to find gothic clothes sometimes that I like at certain shops but I have always loved their selections. They have some really lovely pieces that I can easily incorporate into my wardrobe.

Some of my favorite gothic dresses from Punk Rave:

Perfect dress for the club. 

This dress has a very romantic feel to it. 

I love the variety of dresses that they have in the shop that can fit with any mood. 

They also have some amazing gothic jackets in the shop.  

Go check out Punk Rave. Happy shopping! Let me know what some of your favorite pieces are.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child book party!

When I heard Keplers was doing a book party for the new Harry Potter book. I had to go! I can't wait to read it. IT was a total blast and I made some new cool friends. Enjoy the pics!!

Tea Leaf reading.

Of course a Harry Potter party wouldn't be complete without Bellatrix! 

Outfit of the day inspiration: HIM

I love the band HIM. They are a cool rock band that has been around for some time and they have an 80's/90's gothic influence to them. Very cool band. If you have never head of them check them out! I wore my new HIM shirt and combined it with my favorite fishnet skirt for a cool Summer look.

Top and Skirt, Hot Topic. Bat cameo necklace, Pumpkin Coven. Parasol, Hilary's Vanity.

New look with Kat Von D Serpentina eyeshadow palette

I did a cemetery walk with my husband this week and I was inspired to do an Egyptian look with makeup. I love doing different things and designs with my eyeliner. I usually do spiderwebs but I love doing fancy curls as well. Enjoy my look. I hope it inspires you!

Makeup: Ankh, Hieroglyph and Prophet from Kat Von D's Serpentina Palette.
Ankh choker, Pumpkin Coven. 

Suicide Squad!

Who is going to see Suicide Squad? I don't care about the mixed reviews I love myself a good action comic movie! Plus Harley Quinn looks badass and adorable! Go see the movie and tell me what you thought!! :D I hope you all have a great week. 

Wednesday Addams outfit inspiration part II

I love Wednesday Addams. Who doesn't? I was inspired to do a Wednesday inspired look for Summer since I enjoy emulating her style year round. I needed to find a look for warmer months! I usually like her longer sleeves during Fall and Winter but when it gets toasty outside so as not to boil I stick with a short sleeve look. This look is velvet which I don't recommend for Summer but it was light weight fabric so I didn't burn up. Here I am with my vegan Starbucks pink drink. I know SO not goth lmfao but I love them bahaha. The most colorful part of my wardrobe besides my tattoo. 

Dress, Hot Topic.

New Banner made by Metal Momma from youtube

Love this beautiful new gothic banner made from me by fellow youtuber Metal Momma. I asked for something that had purple and black with maybe some bats and pretty things. I love the rose! She had no idea it was one of my favorite flowers. So lovely and the script in my name juxtaposed with the bat is lovely. Check out her channel down below. I will list mine as well so you can see her lovely banner.  Please subscribe to our channels! :D

Goth DIY for handbags and zippers

When a zipper clasp falls off or fails I go to the fabric store and get some cute little skull or bat clasps to replace them. Sometimes if a bag isn't goth to my liking I replace the zipper clasps with my own. It is super easy to do. Just make sure you have a sturdy pair of pliers to work with. 

Deadpool and Alice in Wonderland movies

Finally saw Deadpool and Alice in Wonderland. Not at the same theater but it was fun. I really liked the Alice movie. Not as much as I liked the first one but I will definitely buy it. I also liked Deadpool. Hilarious. I want to get that film too. My husband particularly liked it because he is super sarcastic like him haha. I hope there are more fun goth-esque movies to see this summer! It is almost summer ahhh it is super toasty here so I will be spending a lot of time indoors at theaters and drinking yummy iced juices and vegan ice cream cones. Yum yum!!!
