We are so excited to announce we have 2 more Photoshoot Parties scheduled in the near future! These are a new take on our regular large scale parties and are a great option if you’d like to do a shoot with an elaborate set and props, and be personally styled and photographed by Gloomth’s designer/art-director Taeden Hall. 🙂
Each package includes a dress of your choice (made to measure) and basic makeup/hair, as well as a professional photoshoot in a themed set complete with unique props.
You’ll get 10+ photos from the day edited and ready to download in about 1-2 weeks after the day.
Full details on facebook!
We have 3 spots only for each day so sign up quick if you would like to attend!!!!!!
We’ll probably continue to be a little quiet on the photoshoot front until the new collection launches, but I couldn’t resist creating this eerie little series with Vanessa Walsh last week! 🙂
I emptied out my antique linen trunk and built this neat Victorian attic feeling set in my dining room. We had a lot of fun creating these photos!
Vanessa is wearing our “Valance” dress in black with vintage and handmade accessories. For her makeup I used warm toned browns and off-reds to create this soft faded dolly look.
As always there are a ton more photos on our flickr album!
You can check out Vanessa’s artwork on instagram also! Thanks again for modeling for me!!!!!

We will be focused on shooting the new collection in March (if everything goes smoothly) and we just found out we have our current studio for just a little longer than we expected- so we’re extending the order deadline!!!!!!!!!!
Our current range and custom orders will be available until April 10th.
After that the styles on our site will disappear and the new collection will take their place! We won’t be offering custom sizing or custom designs for a little while afterwards, while I set up with a new atelier for that stuff- so if custom is your thing you need to place your order before April 9th.
I’ll probably be fairly quiet with shoots and things here til the new line launches since we’re just going a bit mad prepping for all of that. 🙂
At the “Fruits Magazine the end” show Gloomth created a super fun window installation and we did a fashion show at the gallery with our models. During the event we were also filmed and I was briefly interviewed about what we do and there are some shots of the inside of our 10th anniversary book also for Fairchild TV!!!!!!!!
The episode aired this week and is now available online as well! 🙂
Coverage of the event begins at 6 minutes 45 seconds into the video.

We’re doing a final inventory of the fabrics in our studio and trying to use up shades before we close the current studio and move to our new space! So here is our current list of fabric options, all of these can be incorporated into any of our current designs, if you don’t see it listed as an option at checkout just email me or put it in the comments field at checkout on our site or etsy!
(here are some pictured below):
Paris Green (shown above)- I absolutely loved this fabric when we got it in and it was for a limited edition version of our “Verdant” dress (also shown above). We don’t have the black lace fabric anymore but this shade of green looks incredible with black, so would look great as our “Tuxedo” dress or even as a “Valance” style!
Very Dark Purple- Curiously we have enough for maybe two dresses of any size in this nice classic purple cotton (shown on far left of the photo above). Was ordered originally for a stage production we were dressing.
Dove Grey (shown above)- We have a fair amount of this fabric left.
Black and Dark Navy Blue, lots of both of those left.
Blue Floral- 100% cotton with a blue and green floral motif. Lots of this left!
Damask- Lots of this 100% cotton with a light mocha and white damask throughout!
This week we finished our last bolt of striped fabric from the “Haunted Circus” collection and since we move to the new production system in less than a month we won’t be re-ordering any during that time. Deleting the sales code for those items off the Gloomth site was a surprisingly emotional experience for me and I thought it would be good to write about it here, maybe more for myself than anything.
Our “Haunted Circus” collection will always hold an important place in Gloomth’s history. It was the first really successful themed collection we created. We also began to come of age as a label with it I feel. I built a backdrop for the launch shoot I am still proud of and we set it up in a big field near my apartment and spent the afternoon taking photos and goofing off. It was one of those days where there’s a heat-shimmer of magic over everything. Our models were perfectly Gloomth, climbing trees and picking up bugs and talking about gross things the entire time. I made art with my friends for a whole day.
The video captures the electricity of the day so well, it also has the hands of everyone involved in that shoot on it. David Keyes who filmed it, Russel Hall our photographer, our models- Fine Lines, CheshireCat, Nymeria.
So much of the process of taking this next step evolution for Gloomth has been very emotional for me, and I’ll write more on that when it’s all finished (don’t want to curse anything so early, heh). I am so hopeful about the future and working my proverbial ass off to set things up for the new system to be a success.
The “Haunted Circus” original collection may be discontinued but the spirit of that line will be reimagined in future designs and will always be a part of our aesthetic story.
Thanks for being a part of that too.
