Game of Thrones: The Doo(-mg)r

game-of-thrones-the-door-55-017

Well dang, Martin, been planning this one for a while, have you? On this week’s episode of Game of Thrones, Sansa gets a letter asking her to meet with Littlefinger in Moletown. Baelish is either stupid (doubtful) or conniving, as he plays dumb with Sansa regarding the Boltons. The writing is, frankly, wildly disappointing. Sansa […]

Game of Thrones: Book of The Stranger Than You

IMG_4061

Welcome back to HBO’s Game of Thrones. This week I got a tattoo in honor of Arya (It’s a sword with “Not Today” written around it. It’s pretty cool. Yes, my parents are disappointed.) and I didn’t even see her! What gives? But this week we did get to see the reunions we’ve all been […]

Game of Thrones: O-(shit)-athbreaker

Game of Thrones Oathbreaker Pics

On this week’s episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, I’m already stressed by the episode hints. Whenever they show stuff from old seasons as the teaser, I worry. We start off on FrankenJon. And Kit Herrington’s booty. Can’t complain about that I guess. Yes, surprising no one, Jon is back from the dead and freaking […]

BLT Colorful Bleach Process Punk Shirts for Migraine Sufferers

BLT Jumbo Bleach T

The BLT Kickstarter added a bunch of in-your-face shirt designs today. The art is so over-the-top and I love the themes. These are apparently going to use some sort of soft screenprinting process which utilizes bleach, so they won’t have any thick plastic feel. My favorites from this batch are the straitjacket guy with his […]

BLT Black Leather Times Zine Book and Tshirts

BLT Suicide

Old skool goths probably remember the little BLT humor zines from conventions. Each issue had hilarious, witty, and sarcastic writing and really cool artwork. Content ranged from goth-industrial club reviews to quizzes on how to tell if you are dating a vampire (spoiler: you are not dating a vampire.) My favorite parts were probably the […]

California Deathrock Art Book

California Deathrock

Blue Blood has published California Deathrock, a gorgeous hardcover book of portraiture by Amelia G and Forrest Black. Both have served on our Gothic.net Panel of Experts (which we really should post more of) and both are famous for their individualistic portraits of counterculture people. Where a lot of photographers just see black lipstick, Forrest […]

Alice en Bataille

heavy red alice

We like gothic and we like literary, so Heavy Red’s Alice en Bataille couture Halloween costume really hits the spot. The concept is a sort of goth battle-ready Alice in Wonderland. Each year, Heavy Red does a different take on Alice in Wonderland cosplay. Maybe I am over-thinking it, but I do believe the progression […]
