I find this Finnish dark alternative blog so fascinating! Rosette writes in English much of the time, and posts adorable pics of herself with shopping finds or new contact lenses she's trying out. I love seeing her wigs, hair and makeup - she looks gorgeous!

The Evolution Store
This New-York based shop sells a wide assortment of replica skulls, anatomical models, real skulls and skeletons, dead insect displays, taxidermy items, minerals, seashells and fossils.
They also carry posters, puzzles and toys, decorative home items (including skull decor and glass spiders), and jewelry. Intriguing items here - check out this steampunk bird holding a key.
This shop is by a Los Angeles-based illustrator. Her shop sells prints of her artwork, plus the occasional original; as well as some nice stationery depicting octopi, bees, and crows. My favorite thing here is her Bebe Monster illustration reproduction.
I wasn't sure if I was going to add this link or not. It's not a goth or dark store, and the imagery here is mostly fetish or J-pop style. But I love the eyeshadows here so much, and the cool looking packaging, so I thought I'll just go for it.
Victoria ColdWolf's store sells adorable mini coffins. You can use them for your dolls, jewelry, small deceased pets, stationery or other storage uses. They're meant to be decorative, and not to be played with by children.
Ghosttales Television Network
A cable television network specializing in "real" paranormal ghost hunt investigations. (As opposed to the fakey ones on A&E and Travel Channel). Here you can watch a couple episodes of their shows, plus find out about affiliated television stations and radio stations.
A Youtube horror show hosted by Lianne Spiderbaby, a writer for Fangoria. The show features convention news, horror film reviews, and interviews. There's also a bit of sci fi included too. The production values are really good here. Past episodes include a discussion of American Horror Story, a review of Paranormal Activity 4, and a Psycho/Hitchhock tribute episode.
Real Queen of Horror
A horror film review blog by Zena, a young filmmaker. Currently she's sharing pictures of the upcoming horror film Mama; interviewing the head of Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens; and also sharing a few pictures from her wedding day.
Another horror-related Youtube channel, this one by the editor of Rue Morgue Radio. Recent videos include Making Monsters, Cabin in the Weirds, and a nice What is Goth? video starring Liisa Ladouceur. These videos are well done and interesting, I'm surprised to see so many of them have less than 500 views each.
