Who Am I?

🦄

I'm a left-handed redhead. Probably rarer than a unicorn.

Black-Owned Gothic and Punk Fashion Brands to Support Today

On June 1st, calls for a boycott against Dolls Kill went out after the owner of the company allegedly posted in support of the police after the murder of George Floyd. It isn't the first time they've been accused of racism , so folks have put together a list of alternative brands to support. I would much rather give my business to Black-owned fashion brands and those that are anti-racist. If you are of the same mind as I am, here are a few brands worth supporting: Punk Clothing/Alternative Sinister Sisters Sinister Sisters only have three items on their Etsy shop right now and none of those sexy crop t-shirts would look out of place at a death metal gig. Make sure to stop back in regularly to check for new items, I know that I definitely will be! Nasty Gem Independently owned, every item in this shop is hand-made, processed, packaged and shipped by the owner. Spiky bags and collars, deadly earrings, and chunky steel accessories are the mainstay motifs of N

Menhera and Yami Kawaii - So Cute I Could Die

Unless you're an avid follower of the more obscure fashion trends to creep out of Harajuku in the last two decades, you probably haven't heard of the fashion subculture movements that are challenging Japan's silent mental illness epidemic and suicide problem. *Content Warning: Mentions of mental illness, self-harm, suicide, and other potentially triggering ideas. Read at your own risk. Enter Menhera and Yami Kawaii . According to the tumblr account fymenhera , menhera ( メンヘラ ) is a Japanese slang term derived from the English 'mental health' and sparked a whole underground fashion subculture often referred to as yami kawaii ( 病みかわいい ) or "sick cute". Refinery29 did a piece on this a while back, which you can find here or simply watch the video below: Japan (and other parts of Asia) have long carried an intense and negative stigma towards mental illness. Those suffering from mental illness or other mental health problems had very little

Can you be a pastel goth without pastel hair?

Disclaimer: I realize fully that pastel goth is not a part of the traditional Goth subculture and that there's a lot of dispute over whether or not the style can even take on the moniker of Goth (but I think it's a rather silly thing to get pissy over, so I'm ignoring it), but I fully adore the style and often-times consider how to incorporate it into my own wardrobe. Which brings me to this question: Is it possible to rock a legit Pastel Goth outfit without having pastel or otherwise colored hair? Honestly, it's hard to find any pictures on the internet of girls with natural colored hair sporting a pastel goth outfit. And I'm not talking about this nu-Goth stuff (though I enjoy that too!) with lightly colored hair. The two simply are not the same thing. Even so....it was difficult. But I did manage to find a few photos lurking around that might give one a good idea how to rock a Pastel Goth look without bleaching out your hair or investing in a pink wig. ^_
