Amarilli is an Italian painter and portraitist. She describes her style as Magic Realism expressed through faery, mythology, fantasy & gothic subjects. Her recent 2010 galleries include Dark Angels, Tuscan Dream, and Nudes.
Not the darkest work you'll see me feature, but there is a whimsical quality about these resin sculptures that I really enjoyed. The artist also has a small illustration gallery. Her site is in French, but it's easy to navigate as you're snooping around.
An illustrator with definite goth style tendencies. He gets inspiration from Japanese ghost stories, Victorian windows, art nouveau and silent films. I really enjoyed looking through the illustration gallery and sketches here.
The Monster Engine
Dave Devries' art project that explores what children's drawings would look like if they were painted realistically. There are definitely a lot of monsters here, but there are also superheroes. Dave's illustrations have been made into a book and have traveled as part of various art shows.
Black Eyed Suzie Art Dolls
A doll creator's journal, where she shares works in progress and shows off recently completed dolls. It's amazing how much work goes into these lovely, haunting dolls.
I love popping in here every couple of days to see what new skulls have been sighted. Today is skull-shaped cereal, yesterday was skulls painted on a skateboard deck, and the day before featured a skull ring on a woman's hand.
Skulls and Bacon
Another find-of-the-day type blog, but not just devoted to skulls. Besides bacon posts, there are occasional anime-related finds as well. Yesterday showed the really cool new skull-themed kitchen implements from Sur la Table.
24 Hour Pouty People
A "weekly goth blog" featuring the blogger's interesting comic strips. They're high quality, so it will be interesting to see if he can keep to his planned weekly posting schedule. I hope so!
Elders of Goth
The creator of Morticia's Morgue created this Facebook group for goths 30 and over. They discuss the lifestyle, music, and fashion. So far there are 1500 members and lots of ongoing discussions. Cool, I may have to join up.
The sconces and chandeliers here are stunning. It gives me pause to recommend this site when the "lamps" link is obviously broken and the copyright notice says 2009 not 2010. I hope this isn't an abandoned store, because their products are beautiful.
An Etsy shop selling taxidermy jewelry, goth/Victorian jewelry, Halloween decor, original paintings, and gothic Christmas cards.
This boutique sells "spooky, weird, and avant garde gifts." There's no copyright or date on the site, so I'm not 100% sure it is still attended and running. There is a lot of cool Day of the Dead stuff here, plus candles, purses, parasols, and T-shirts.
Stubbs & Wootton
This is a mainstream high-end shoe company with extremely expensive products. I'm just showcasing it because so many of the shoes have quirky or dark elements to them, such as the skull-and-crossbones shoe shown above. Check out the devil slipper in the gentlemen's section!
