Wednesday Wrap-Up #1

Hey everyone! I'm slowly starting to get back into the swing of things here which means I'll be back to posting before you know it. I have a back-log of reader mail and questions to get through, as well as some interesting new collaborations coming up, but I thought I'd start by giving some lip-service to some of the wonderful things I've seen around the web lately.


Digital Throne - The U Project
The lovely Em Weston contacted me to show me this music video for their goth industrial / alternative rock band that's just starting up and I've positively loved it, so I look forward to hearing more from them in the future.

Sanity - Whiskey & Speed
I've been on a weird punk-y sludge metal kick lately. Is that weird? Anyway, Whiskey & Speed have been filling that little hole in my heart lately. Their album The New Dumb Idea is available for name-your-price on Bandcamp here and it's full of raw punky goodness.

Only When I Lose Myself - Depeche Mode
Okay, it's an oldie, but a goodie. Depeche Mode is one of my favorite bands and this song has been on-repeat on my iPod for a while now, so it's worth shoving in all your faces I think.

Fashion and Beauty

Goth Makeup Tutorial for Guys - It's Black Friday
Black Friday is one of my favorite Youtubers at the moment, she's just so charming and funny in her videos, and now she has a tutorial for guy's goth makeup featuring her SO. Neat!

Exercise-Proof Goth Makeup - Bats and Dumbells
I don't wear makeup when I go out for runs (especially now that summer is creeping up on us Maryland folk) but for those of you that do, Bats and Dumbells has a fantastic tutorial for Goth makeup that stays put and won't melt!

I Believe You Call This Fashion? - The Everyday Goth
Yup, boasting about my own selfies, as you do. I bought a pair of wide-legged trousers at a thrift store recently and have been absolutely adoring them, so expect to see them in some outfit posts in the near future.


Skull Icon Patch - Evil Supply Co.
Evil Supply Co. just redesigned their website and it looks fucking fantastic, so as I was browsing a couple of things caught my eye. I'm working on a patch jacket right now (keep an eye out for that post!) and this is on my to-order list, as well as this cute bat patch.

Skull Necklace - Kerry Dyer
Kerry Dyer is a sculptor and puppet maker who just opened this store to sell some of her products and this simple two-skull resin necklace caught my eye. I can't decide if I want the white or the black more!

Bats Beach Towel - Sin in Linen
I've featured the lovely folk from Sin in Linen before on this blog, they're an absolute delight and I think they sell absolutely gorgeous stuff. This towel caught my eye because it's coming up on beach season and my beach bag will be Goth or it will be Bullshit.

What's been going on in your corners of the web?
