Spooktacular Hearses and HearseCon!

Hearses aren't always a drag like many people think. This vehicle puts the fun in funeral. There are some really awesome and completely outrageous looking custom hearses out there, so I thought I'd share some pictures.

Every year There's an event called HearseCon. If you're in Denver June 22-24 this year, check it out. Here's the HearseCon page for 2012. It looks like a lot of fun.

"It's like a funeral at a rock concert."

  1. Hello! I'm a new follower :-)

    For the movie Harold and Maude, they used multiple hearses. Actor Brandon Lee (of The Crow) actually bought one of those hearses, since he was a big fan of that movie (and hearses too, we can assume).

    I'd die for some of those vehicles!

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…

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 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…
