New “Haunted Forest” Photoshoot!

For our new “Haunted Forest” photoshoot I transformed Hexcelle into glittering skeleton royalty against a backdrop of vibrant autumnal leaves. This was a very collaborative shoot as I was feeling quite under the weather. Hexcelle brought a bunch of her own wardrobe items and we built a look utilizing those and Gloomth’s “Carmilla” dress (yes, a variation is going to be back soon for that dress!).

We layered a purple striped waist cincher as well as several types of bustles to add some Gothic Victorian flair to this outfit. The gorgeous skull collar is for sale and was made by Hexcelle herself!!!!

I then spread Halloween spiderwebs over the loop and decorated it with a beaded spider and some hair clips. For her makeup I did a play on the skeleton makeup styles that have been going around like crazy this fall! Utilizing a range of purples and some black, as well as false lashes on top and bottom, and finished with violet glitter accents!

Questionable Pillows

Recently I was searching for a cushion for my kitties, I just wanted something cute/weird that’d work as a cat bed in my apartment. Since Atticus will not share his berry-shaped cat fortress with Goblin. While searching I found *many* delightfully weird pillows and I thought I’d share them. Especially helpful with the holidays descending upon us. Who doesn’t need a nice decorative pillow for their home, office, or to fill their entire vehicle with?!!!

COCKROACH– Yes, you can have a big cuddly awful infestation for your couch. I don’t know why you would want this but it is available.

PENIS- This comes in a variety of sizes (har har har) but oddly only pale pink. I confess I thought long and hard (har har har) about whether I knew anyone I could buy one of these for as they’re just so funny to me.

HAM– It’s ham.

MEAT VARIETY– From prawns to what I think might be a potato, to chicken’s feet and a horrifying pig’s hoof?!!!! Why. What home decor style calls for a revolting chicken’s foot pillow? Voodoo witch-doctor’s waiting room? Butcher’s shops don’t usually have couches! The red thing down at the center is supposedly a sweet potato, it looks like the underbelly of an unnamed insect that has nipples.

CORN– I think these are pretty corny.


BRICK– Again, who is coming up with these ideas? Why would you want a brick shaped pillow?! Bonus shot of someone beating a baby up with a brick shaped pillow. Take THAT baby!

EGG– I like how the poor girl modeling these has enlisted her cat. “Come on Spot, look at the camera and pose with the egg pillow!”. The cat’s face has been cropped out because no one wants to see a confused and upset cat modeling a fake egg cushion.


GINGER– I mean, without that word in the title of the description I would never have guessed this pillow is supposed to be ginger. Some sort of tumor maybe? Bowel obstruction? Poorly made teddy bear?

CONDOM- Safe sex is really important, yes, but maybe a cheery yellow pillow isn’t the best way to convey this message? It’s so weird looking you’ll forever be explaining, “Oh thats not a fire hydrant, grandma, it’s a condom pillow!” to everyone who sees it. Goes especially well with the pink penis pillows! I’d like to buy these for the local sexual health clinic but they’d probably prefer a monetary donation….

I found all of these on ebay so if you’re in the market for a big clump of ham emblazoned on a pillow in your bedroom you can just find it over there.

Holiday Deadlines and Whatnot

gothic lolita outfit

Suddenly it’s November and mall stores are hanging plastic garland and blaring carols til we want to stab the nearest sharp object deep into our ear canals. 😉

Since it’s basically a month away I wanted to state our in-time-for-Xmas deadline and when we’ll be closed for the holiday ourselves.

The last day for Xmas orders is DECEMBER 8th. After that we cannot guarantee arrival in time for the holidays under any circumstances.

Our production will be closed from December 22nd til January 3rd. Nothing will be made or mailed during this time, but I’ll still answer email inquiries as often as I can during the holiday.

New “Lagomorph” Photoshoot!

Lagomorph: The lagomorphs are the members of the taxonomic order Lagomorpha, of which there are two living families: the Leporidae(hares and rabbits) and the Ochotonidae (pikas). The name of the order is derived from the Ancient Greek lagos (λαγώς, “hare”) +morphē (μορφή, “form”). There are about eighty-seven species of lagomorph, including about twenty-nine species of pika, twenty-eight species of rabbit and cottontail, and thirty species of hare.

HAPPY HALLOWEEEEEEEEEEEN! Just before we rush off to give ourselves stomach aches with candy here’s a special Halloween photoshoot with Gloomth Girl Vanessa Walsh to share!

These photos also mark my first time shooting with my brand new Pentax dslr which I am beyond excited about. 🙂

We had lots of fun out in the golden autumn sunshine creating these photos! Even if it was a bit chilly. The bunny mask was a quick find at a costume shop near me, and it’s so perfectly creepy in the photos.

For Vanessa’s hair I wired two braids into tangly bunnyears. Her makeup I tried to echo the colors on the mask- pink, white, grey- with some clownish theatrical flair.

I also shot with my regular camera this day so we’ll have a whole second set of images to share as well! 🙂

Vanessa is wearing our “Mabel” blouse and “Viola” skirt in black.

Thanks again to Vanessa for modeling for me for this shoot!

Lots more photos on flickr!
