New Dark and Gothic Links for a Snowy February Afternoon


Dark Jane Austen Book Club

I love this idea! Sarah and Veronica post and organize a club of dark-minded people who happen to also love reading Jane Austen and related literature. In February 2015 they're reading "Sanditon" and in March they'll read "She" by H. Rider Haggard.

Gothic Cuisine

Here's a group I'm really excited to join! Goths share their macabre kitchen creations, love of cooking, and express their creativity through entertaining. A cozy group with just around 180 members.

Gothic Cuisine, on Facebook

Gothic Parents

Another cozy little Facebook group, for people raising baby bats and kindergoths. Alternative parents are also welcomed here.

Victorian Post-Mortem Photography

This Facebook group devoted to the history of Victorian post-mortem photography has over 2500 members.

Dorian's Parlor

This group is for coordination and community for the Dorian's Parlor event in Philadelphia. The group page is also a great way to find out about cool events and nightclub nights in the area.

This is a dark and gothic fantasy page, with lots of beautiful photo reposts of dark fantasy, gothic jewelry and fashion.

Gothic Revival Houses

Architecture buffs may enjoy looking through this curated list of Gothic Revival styled houses that have come up for sale. I'm not shopping for a new house any time soon, but I enjoy looking through these from time to time. I don't want to particularly live in Nebraska, either, but this house takes my breath away!

Gothic & Victorian Clothes

Nearly 10,000 people have signed up to see this page's daily posts on gothic fashion.

In the Name of Goth

This Facebook page is a great place to find out about dark and gothic communities online. Just today they've been posting several links per hour to other Facebook pages and resources. The one thing I don't like though is how often they post unattributed dark fantasy art or goth photos and don't credit the original source or mention where one could see more art like it.

Ministry of Goths

This page shares mostly links and beautiful photographs to dark photographers, gothic and alternative models, and reposts from other pages specializing in gothic alternative fashion photoshoots.

The Council of Days

A one-man gothic rock band from Alabama. The debut album is "Dark Night of the Soul."

An industrial/hard dance "hard style" band from Nevada. May be a little too "metal" for Darklinks readers, but check it out just in case the music calls to you anyway.


Darksiderz on Facebook


This is a Joy Division covers band from New Zealand. You can watch a 15 minute interview with them here.

White Hex

This goth band from Australia describes their sound (I assume tongue in cheek?) as "Tropical goth." I love the female vocalist's voice! I'm excited to hear, via their Facebook page, that they're currently in the studio.

Check out the lovely vocals in Paradise, and the guitar work on Holiday.

The Attic Shoppe

This Etsy shop is run by artist Bethalynne Bajema's aunt. Its tagline is "A family of artists who embrace fantasy & celebrate autumn year round!" Items for sale here include the gorgeous Isidore neo-Victorian Tarot, the Sepia Stain Tarot deck, a gorgeous book on The Dark Fantasy Art of Bethalynne Bajema, plus other fabulous art prints and art books.

Exquisitely Rotten

This Pennsylvania-based shop sells gorgeous hand-painted corsets. There are some Harry Potter and Dr. Who themed corsets, but Darklinks readers will most likely prefer the Hellraiser lament configuration corset, the ouija board underbust corset and the Edward Scissorhands underbust corset.

Nocturne's Armoire

Here's a nice little gothic jewelry store, based in Illinois. They could really probably use a new logo redesign (it looks like a 1990s era website) but they sell adorable rings, earrings, and other jewelry pieces. There's a few steampunk items, skulls and spiders, vampires and some Halloween themed pieces too.

My favorite item here is this filigree bat necklace.

Patched Jester Creations

This LA-based shop sells gorgeous steampunk, fantasy, and dark clothing. Some of the garments here are based on Tarot cards, such as this stunning Hermit gown. There are some delightfully unusual pieces here - I'm sure you'll enjoy browsing this store!




Poison Apple Print Shop

This shop sells occult themed prints, T-shirts, patches, cards, and stickers. I see a lot of occult stuff on the Net all the time, and I really like how unusual the stuff here is. The artist behind the designs is Adrienne from Pennsylvania.

My favorite thing for sale here is the Sea Witch T-shirt.



This steampunk accessories and jewelry shop is based in Florida. There are lockets, rings, pendants, watches, and tie tacks. Lots of fabulous things to look over.

Despite my intense dislike of spiders, I have to admit that my favorite thing here is this steampunk tarantula brooch.



Gothic Society of Ontario

A community for goth denizens of Ontario, Canada. Events and info on local happenings.

Intriguing Gothic Home Decor Shops

I wanted to share a few dark home decor shops I've stumbled across of late!

Freaky Furniture Store

This brand new eBay store (no feedback yet!) sells a large variety of coffin-shaped items for your home. They also have a more established presence on Etsy. There are coffin-shaped mirrors, coffin shaped cutting boards for your kitchen, jewelry boxes, and a coffin shaped coffee table.

My favorite items here are the coffin-shaped doll carriage and the coffin footstool.



Haunt Furniture

This Australian shop is supposedly going to open their website this weekend, on February 13. (Friday the thirteenth! How auspicious!) They'll sell throne chairs, regal beds, carved black furniture, and some furniture in pastel and shocking electric hues as well. Oh how I'd love for a store like this to open in my city!

Raxfox Design

Oh my gosh! I LOVE this store! I worship it! The shop is based in Leipzig, Germany. I'm wondering if the Whitby Gothic Weekend folks have influenced this designer's tastes and style?

Here's a Burtonesque kitchen bookshelf; here's an oddly shaped March Hare Bookshelf; a darling Jack Skellington bookshelf will probably tempt you. Everything here is Burton or Wonderland influenced, twisted into unusual shapes, and painted beautifully as far as I can tell from the pictures. I think you are going to swoon!

My favorite item here is this Lullaby Bookshelf, but it was agonizing to pick just one favorite!

Spooky Shades

Here are some really cool lamp shades based on cool horror, circus sideshow, palmistry, and sugar skull themes. The shop also sells some pillow covers and horror-themed drink coasters. The shop is based in Lyons, France.

My favorite item here is this circus sideshow ceiling pendant lamp shade.

This is a Limited Edition

What a dumb store name (IMHO). However, this UK shop sells amazing and unusual home decor and art prints based on works by the type of pop-surreal artists you see in Hi-Fructose Magazine. The artists' works are printed onto teacups and saucers, pillows, scarves, dinnerware, bags, and even onto chairs. (Check out the "Curious Embrace" octopus-themed wing chair!).

"You Come First" cup and saucer, by Audrey Kawasaki
Some of the darkest, coolest artists featured here include Nathan Jurevicius, my personal favorite, Audrey Kawasaki, Tara McPherson, Caia Koopman, Kukula, the ethereal Nicoletta Ceccoli, and Frank Kozik.

I had so much fun exploring this site tonight, and I hope you will enjoy it very much as well!
