It’s been almost a week now since I bought myself something nice, and frankly I’m beginning to get the shakes. As I’m currently funnelling all of my spare pennies into my New Tattoo Fund, I’m trying to keep my frivolous purchased down a bit, but that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped Jonesing over all sorts of cool clothes and tat that I keep telling myself that I can’t actually have. Boo.
To try to get a hit of those good old spending endorphins without having to actually pay for them, I’ve spent my time instead window shopping the net for stuff that I want, but am not currently going to buy. Perhaps one of my minions will be willing to take one for the team and buy this stuff so that I don’t have to, and then maybe message me to gloat about it so that I can live vicariously through your purchasing joy.
Anyhoo, without further ado, here are my top five picks of Goth-related cool stuff that I approve of this week.
Handmade lace skull plate
I am skull-obsessed of late, and this handmade lace skull plate on Etsy is ticking all of my boxes at £30 and some change, being handmade and incorporating a nice juxtaposition of lacework, handmade pottery and darkness.
Grim reaper pendant
I have long said that at my funeral, someone better damn well dress as the grim reaper and just stand silently at the back glaring at everyone, and grim reaper imagery is one of my favourite looks.
This grim reaper pendant, again on Etsy, again has everything that I like; silver, pinky purple and a grim reaper. Only £12 too.
Gypsy dreams tank top
The idea of wearing anything involving sequins usually brings me out in hives, but I’ll make an exception in this case. This “gypsy dreams” tank top by Iron Fist is pretty cool, and will work nicely with leggings and shitkicker boots without making you look like a rhinestoned ditsy twatwaffle.
Van Goth card
LOL! And verily I say unto thee, LOL! This Van Goth card (I can’t help myself around puns, seriously, it’s kind of a sickness) is only a couple of quid, and I’m finding it hilarious. I’d totally frame it in a dark, ornate frame and just let it speak for itself.
These are fecking AWESOME. Clothes peg BATS! Unfortunately, these cool-as-feck pegs are over £2 EACH, so I probably won’t be shelling out for a set any time soon. I have to say that the site deserves extra points for irony though, as they invite you to select a colour for your pegs, and when you launch the drop-down menu, you will find that they can be bought in any colour you like, as long as it is black. Well played sir, well played.
