The Gothic Box

     I started to feel really bored and also quite restless earlier today, so I decided to drop by the mall to check out FYE (the music store). It turns out, the store is going out of business. The only music store near me that actually stocks some decent music! Well, fortunately for me, I got something good out of the whole deal. Everything in the store was 50%-70% off. After browsing, I happened upon something called "The Gothic Box." I had been wanting this thing since before Christmas, but I haven't been able to afford it. It's a CD box-set with three goth rock compilation CDs and a music video DVD. It also included a manuscript with commentary from various band members and a guide to "How to Dance Gothic" and "For Running a Proper Goth Night" with pictures throughout. I was absolutely ecstatic to find out that this $65 set cost me only $20! This made me a very happy kitty. Check out the pics:

And also, my best friend decided to give me a pair of converse boots that didn't fit her. I decided to paint some Nightmare Before Christmas style bats on the toes. Here they are:


  1. I checked out "The Gothic Box" from my library and it was really my first taste of goth music. Isn't it fabulous?!

    1. Wow, your library must be great to stock the gothic box. I love it. I'm even watching the music videos right now that came in the set.

DIY Nose Chain

For those of you who've been trying to hunt down a nose chain, you probably know that they're difficult to find. Even online, there isn't a big selection. The ones I've found at a local Indian mall were pretty, but they weren't exactly what I was looking for. I finally decided it would be easier to make my own. 

What you need: Any kind of necklace chain (preferably lightweight)Nose ring (you can also make a lip chain if you have a lip ring.)Earring HookMetal loops (You might be able to find a couple on your necklace)Jewelry pliers (I used regular pliers, but it's a lot more difficult.)How To Make It: Measure out the length you want your nose chain. Using the  pliers, separate the chain to your desired length.Take the piece you need, and attach both ends to  the bigger metal loops.Attach one end to your earring hook and the other end to your nose ring. Make sure the ends are tightened enough where the nose chain won't come apa…

My Mom Wanted me to Update my Blog

Well, I didn't plan to stop blogging. It just happened that I haven't posted in six months. A lot has happened in that time, and I owe it to my biggest fan, my mom, to post an update. Here it is, Mom!
I ended up going to a few more Goth club nights before I left Atlanta. I went with one to my best friend, who is pictured below:
Then I moved to rural Northern West Virginia where I can walk to water falls and hike up mountains. I live only 3 hours from Washington, D.C., so I've been there a few times as well. 

When Halloween came around, Ryan flew up to visit. We dressed as Titania and Bottom from A Midsummer Night's Dream and drove to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum for a Halloween Ball. The old asylum is huge and has beautiful Gothic architecture. We brought our own beer and walked around, ogling at the elaborately dressed costumers.

I even saw Robert Smith! He seemed very pleased that I recognized him.

Then, before we knew it, Christmas arrived. My roommates and I…

My First Time at a Goth Club

When I walked into the building for Ascension, a Goth/Industrial night, they started playing "This Corrosion." I was introduced to Goth six years ago when I listened to the song, so it was like the night saying "Merry Gothmas, Katie!" I'd been planning on going all week, but when Friday rolled around, I was so exhausted from spending the entire day getting a new car (my last one was totaled) and then visiting family with a long drive back. I came home and wanted to just take a nap, and after taking too long to decide, I got dressed and headed out the door. This past Ascension was the last one held at the Masquerade, a much-loved local venue, and I wanted to experience it before I left for West Virginia.

I'd known about Ascension for a while. One reason why I hadn't gone before this past Friday is because of being a student and having lived an hour away. It's a lame excuse. Aside from that, I told myself for years that I wasn't a cluby-type (alth…
