"Potion bottles and Halloween crafts." This blogger creates Halloween and spooky crafts year-round. Right now they're posting about dancing skeletons; edible brains; making mummy fingers; and creating bottled Witch's Grave Dirt.
Candace is the founder of GhoulGirls, and is an alternative model, a cosplayer and an artist. Many of her posts are links to her photoshoots on GhoulGirls, but you might enjoy checking out her recent post on being a princess for hire at a children's party company, and stop by her social media sites to see the interesting things she's sharing.
"Macabre mirth every weekday." Well, they have good intentions but the blog comic is updated two or three times a month. This comic features monsters and creatures such as Nessie, aliens, Frankenstein, werewolves, etc. It's a quirky fun browse, I'll definitely stop by here every couple weeks to see the latest comic.
French Market Stitch
This shop sells fabulous burlesque corset costumes, fascinators, and mini top hats.
It's really hard to pick a favorite here, but I suppose I prefer this Black Swan showgirl corset.
I've been meaning to link to this really cool Canadian shop for a very long time. They sell "captivating curiosities, cool collectibles, creepy couture, custom creations." Gothic Gourd Girl sells one-of-a-kind foam pumpkin sculptures, all including an LED light for year-round use. You can custom order them. There are also some t-shirts in the shop. I'm remembering why I was hesitant to link this site now - it's very difficult to see actual pictures of past custom pumpkins here. There are just a few pics on the front page of the beautiful pumpkin creations. The gallery of happy customers with their products loads slowly and I can't see all that many products. The "gallery of products and commissions" is empty. How disappointing. Check their Facebook for hopefully more recent updates and pics.
A quick example of her work is this Android Onyx Hoop Skirt. Really some quite stunning things here.
Renee sells zombie survival kits, soaps and bath and body products.
The shop is probably best known for its Felted soap zombies - a soap and washcloth in one! There are also monster soaps and ninja soaps. Cute!
This Etsy shop currently doesn't have any active listings, but probably that's because a bunch of people rushed to buy these cute fluffy zombie teddy bears for their goth Valentine's Day gifts, right? For now, you can view the bloody creations on the Undead Ted Tumblr.
Adria Lynn sells her gorgeous clay and leather masks. The shop also sells some steampunk leather bracelets and a few pendants.
The Jekyll & Hyde
The goths of Birmingham, UK and surrounding areas are so incredibly fortunate to live near this amazing restaurant/bar! You can visit it for a meal or a drink, or rent it out for private events.
The Jekyll & Hyde features a Victorian gin parlor and a Wonderland courtyard. Outside, the building is painted a vivid purple and decorated with cool imagery. They have really cool events from time to time too, such as a retro quiz night, Juniper Cinema (currently showing some Hitchcock films) and music nights (though the music is not at all goth or dark).
Check out their vintage styled cocktail menu. They offer over 50 varieties of gin to taste from.
I'd so love to visit this place someday!
A monthly (every first Saturday) goth/darkwave/industrial club night in New Haven, CT. Ulteria also produces an event, "The Damned," every third Friday.
The Blog is Coming from Inside the House
This blog specializes in reviewing lesser-known horror films, finding really interesting things to review. I especially love the well-placed sarcasm when replying to annoying commenters or comment spammers. Very entertaining!
An image a day from the blogger's personal archives of horror magazines, horror photos and monstrous images collected over many years. This might be a nice site to evolve into a Pinterest or Tumblr, but for now it's a blog. My favorite recent post is an amazing still photo of Vincent Price in "The Mad Magician" from 1954.
Monster Movie Round Table
Here's a nice set of really active horror movie forums. Currently participants are discussing "Warm Bodies," The Walking Dead, and Universal Monsters.
Propnomicon focuses on horror and fantasy props of interest to fans of H. P. Lovecraft and players of the "Call of Cthulhu" role playing game. Recent posts include Artifacts from Yuggoth; a post introducing Forlorn Foundry; and a cool Cthulhu dagger.
A blog that presents "Musings of a modern vampire mom." Juliette offers advice on raising vampire children and teenagers. She is much braver than me, sharing very personal details and experiences here.
