5 Goth Blogs I'm Currently Reading


Mormelar's blog on goth fashion and inspiration. I enjoy her honest posts such as "I Think I Shop Too Much" (I can relate!). She's just recently started this blog, and hints that she runs a dark flea market Facebook group and has blogged elsewhere. I can't quite suss out what small country she lives in (not to be a stalker, just curious!) Looking forward to learning more about her and seeing the interesting fashion finds she can't resist :)

Lucretia's Reflection

Lucretia is currently blogging about black summer shoes for women; a very helpful article on eldergoth skin care; addresses "I'm 'Too Big' to Wear Goth Clothes"; and an awesome post called The Shiny Black Sheep: Fashion Vs. Style. I really like her thoughtful, well planned out writing style.

Madeleine Swann

Not a goth, but Madeleine blogs about writing, strange art, Lovecraft, fashion, books, films, and other dark subjects. I've found so many interesting things to read here, I've bookmarked it in my "Daily" folder. Check out her "Bizarre Book Club" recommendations and her post on 1950s infomercials.

Underground for Tea

This artist works in a library and posts about goth topics. Currently she's writing about The Care and Dressing of Goth Men; showing her new Cat O-Three Tails painting; sharing lovely goth wedding inspiration; and confessing that she's a goth who loves the sun. (Me too!)

Vampire Rose

I've been following Vampire Rose: The Aging Goth's blog for quite a while now. She writes, "This blog is a diary about how I grew up as an aging goth in the late 1950's, 60's and 70's before being Goth became Kool or whatever it's called now." I enjoy keeping up with what's going on in her life, and learning from her how to age gracefully and fashionably and wisely. Check out her recent lovely post on Of Haunted House and Ghostly Artist. You may also enjoy her take on the development of the Goth movement.
