New “October Bride” Photoshoot!

It’s our favorite month of the year and now that all of our in-time-for-Halloween orders have shipped we can focus on making some new seasonally appropriate art to share with you! Thank you to everyone who made this season *so* busy and so much fun, we can’t wait to see your Halloween pics!

The first shoot we have is this haunting series featuring Gloomth Girl Ashavari and an eight foot bridal veil I found at a thrift store!

I kept Ashavari‘s makeup quite simple for this set, smokey reds and browns in her eyeshadow and small fake lashes to add impact to her eerie grey contact lenses. And added little fake tears running down her cheeks framed in more red. Finished with red lipstick. We have a tutorial on making the fake tears right here too!

We shot in the ravine across from my apartment where the leaves are just transforming into their autumn selves. The light there was beautiful and we had a lot of fun creating these ghost-bride inspired shots.

Ashavari is wearing our “Valance” dress in black, along with a vintage doily neck ruffle, vintage veil, and 1960s leather gloves a friend recently gave me (thanks, MJ!).

New “Slimy Tea Party” Photoshoot!

slime photoshoot gloomth

One of my goals for my art direction work this year has been to GET WEIRD! I find I am most inspired and excited about my work when I am pushing boundaries and exploring the strangest corners of my imagination.

It’s also an exploration of the Gloomth Girl aesthetic. She isn’t any particular subculture, she’s strange and unafraid to play with her appearance. Her style is inspired by so many things, it’s playful and wild, and entirely created for her own enjoyment.

This new shoot with Vanessa Walsh was a ton of fun to create! And very messy. Apparently slime and fabric are a bad combination, but heaps of praise to V for managing the goopy prop without destroying the dress. 😉

New “Fever” Photoshoot!

creepy medical gurololita halloween gloomth

We’re working to create lots of Halloween-inspired photoshoots this fall! Here’s a creepier take on the guro and medical themes we’ve been so into this year.

Azura Rose transformed into a sickly pale wraith in this series. She’s wearing our “Nurse” dress with it’s matching apron.

For Azura’s makeup I went with super paled out skin using a Ben Nye foundation in the lightest shade I could find. I then used red Kyrolan aquacolor, red eyeshadow, and a warm reddish brown eyeshadow to create her hollowed out ghostly eyes. Finished with black mascara and red tinted lipgloss. The makeup would be super easy to recreate for a Halloween party! 😉

You can see the entire series here on flickr!

Thank you to Azura Rose for modeling for us again!

Our Favorite Halloween Decor for 2017

halloween bloomers kawaii witch gloomth

We’re giddy for all things Halloween this time of year! Bring on the candy corn and black glitter. For spooky-inclined folks autumn is the best time to shop for home decor items, and if you’re clever about your choices these Halloween pieces can work year round in Victorian, Gothic, or just eccentric spaces. Here are some of my favorite decor picks from around the web this year!

Tips for shopping for year-round spooky home decor that won’t make your place look as though you just forgot to take down your dollarstore party decorations: Look for luxe materials- ceramic, glass, fabric etc- the better quality material the item is made from the less “seasonal decoration” it seems. Mix seasonal decor items in amongst “regular” decor and arrangements, this adds eerie personal touches to your crafted space.

butterfly display grandin road

Butterfly Display- I love the tattered Victorian feel of this butterflies-under-glass display from the amazing Grandin Road. It’d look great in a Victorian inspired apartment or any bohemian spooky space.

coffin candy dish target

Who doesn’t need a Coffin Candy Dish?! Yes, I actually did order this one already. 😉 It’s a good size for jewelry year round and just so pretty.

skull wine glasses

These skull wine glasses from Target are absolutely gorgeous. Unlike a lot of seasonal cups they aren’t made from some questionable resin and molded to look like something out of the video for a shabby metal band. The subtle skulls are perfect and size makes them ideal as cups year round!

skull pillow

Add some classic spooky elements to your bedroom or living room with this Skull and Crossbones pillow from Grandin Road. I love that it’s hooked-wool which gives it a vintage feel, and definitely doesn’t scream “found in Halloween aisle”!

bat door mat

This Bat Doormat from Pier1 is so perfect! Would make such a nice statement at the entry way of basically anywhere with a door to the outside….

There are so many excellent spooky coasters out everywhere this year! I really like these beaded jack-o-lanterns from Pier1, they seem fancy but are still simple and cute.

Have you seen any excellent Halloween decor ideas this year?
