Laura Dark's amazing goth and dark photography gallery. She lives in Ohio. I am having such a hard time choosing a favorite here. The costuming, lighting, and makeup are stunning, and I love how many dark fairy tale themed photos there are. Perhaps my favorite is Princess Perfect.
Smeared and Smudged
This Ning network is geared towards rubber stampers from the alternative, vintage and goth subcultures. They present art journal challenges, blog hops, tutorials, challenges and other cool ways to stimulate creativity. I haven't joined this network yet as I'm a Michael's shopping addict but not very good at actually crafting, sigh.
DARK AND GOTHIC MUSIC:
A gothic/darkwave band that plays some ambient, post-punk and folk music. They hail from Naples in Italy.
Lastwear Clothing Company
Lastwear is a Seattle-based clothing company that designs steampunk, dieselpunk and goth outfits. They offer a lot of vests and underbust vests, plus cargo pants and spatz.
Pearls and Swine
Most of the hair fascinators and hair accessories here aren't goth, or dark, but I wanted to show them to you anyway. The shop sells burlesque, steampunk, and gothic fascinators, plus masks and crowns.
There are so many creative and unusual pieces here. The one above is my favorite!
This Etsy shop sells couture witch hats, plus intriguingly dyed vintage gowns like this one.
