Fantastical Friday: Dark Valentine

Today’s wishlist was brought to you from Amazon, because it’s my go to source for random & weird things I like, when other shops I frequent may only have 1 or 2 items that would fit the bill. I didn’t find a lot for the guys out there, though I admit I could have looked a bit harder, but I got distracted with things I want…. LOL.

I hope everyone has a wonderful V-day! Perhaps you’ll find this listing useful or perhaps your special someone will, especially if your tastes run to the dark side of bling. (totally random Star Wars-esk joke…. but I stand by it, LOL)

Watermelon Wednesday: Batpack

Watermelon Wednesday

With my great love for all things goth & comic book enjoyment, I just couldn’t resist this lovely I found at Tidebuy. There were several items I considered for this spotlight, but when I saw this particular backpack it shot my thoughts of anything else straight away, lol. What could be more perfect of a bag for me? Well, maybe…. if there were spiders…. I’ll stop digressing now, lol, as per usual with this site I’ve listed the full price, though it will be on some kind of sale anytime you visit, it just won’t be the same sale I’m looking at. 😉

Watermelon Wednesday: A Bit Goth Girl

Watermelon Wednesday

I do love my goth stuff & when I saw this particular piece I was both charmed & amused. Definitely will have to get me one at some point, it would make a great accessory for certain types of get-togethers. In my case it would also be appropriate for my anniversary celebration (you might remember my handfasting on Halloween) & even Valentine’s Day with the goth flavors of my relationship. I found this darkly adorable treasure at Pink Basis & you might also enjoy it as I do. 😉

Watermelon Wednesday: Creepy Bling

Watermelon Wednesday

Naturally, I still have my Halloween feelers out, so as I was checking around Billy the Tree for something to spotlight today I ended up selecting a wonderful goth item. If you’ve been following me for a while, then you’re probably aware that I have a weird thing about spiders (might check out the post I did last year as my birthday wishlist, LOL) & so today’s selection will not come as a big surprise. If you’re into the creepy & macabre then you’ll probably enjoy these beauties too. 😉 They are a little more expensive than I would like, but they also remind me a lot of a necklace I had when I was a teen, actually these earrings are identical to the pendant on the aforementioned necklace. Wonder where that necklace ever got off too…..

Magnificent Monday: Elvira

Magnificent Monday

Behold, the beautiful mistress of the dark! Cassandra Peterson, the Queen of Halloween, created the character of Elvira in 1981, the first episode of Movie Macabre airing in late September of that year. It’s almost hard to believe the show began in L.A. When I was a child we lived in a reconditioned older house that had been made into a duplex, the basement was on our side & it was set up something like another living room. You might be tempted to ask me how that’s relevant in any way, but stick with me for a sec & it will become clear, lol. I would sneak down there at night to watch Movie Macabre, not because I wasn’t allowed to watch, but because it was so late, I wasn’t supposed to be up. I tried to research all across the net exactly when her show became syndicated, but the information does not seem to be available, so I gave up after several hours. I was trying to pinpoint when in time I might have been slipping down into the basement to, half asleep, watch the most epic horror movie hostess of all time. After giving up on the internet answering my question, I asked my mom when we lived in that house (there was only one place with a living room setup in the basement, lol) & she said it was probably the winter of 85/86. That’s probably not when it was syndicated, but when I really noticed her & just in case you’re wondering, I was 5. Wow, that was so long ago & we were living in Missouri back then. A few years back I started playing Smallworlds (you may or may not know that’s my virtual world of choice) & I noticed there was a staff avatar with the name Elvira Smallworlds. I later met that staff memeber, who is from New Zealand & she named that avatar in honor of her favorite horror hostess, who she watched growing up. I can’t help but wonder how old that staff member is & when Elvira became internationally syndicated, but the fact that she is beloved worldwide warms my heart.

elvira(Pics courtesy of Google image search)

She recently released a book (you can see a copy in one of the pics above) with more than 350 pictures, a lot of previously unreleased photos & original commentary. You can find the book here (not affiliated with the publisher, I just love Elvira), it’s $44.95 for just the book & 89.95 for a signed copy. Through the decades she has worn a variety of gothic jewelry pieces & while I have made some selections based on that I’ve also just gone with my own goth heart on this little wishlist from Amazon. You’ll notice that 8 isn’t even jewelry, just a cool jewelry (or other item) holder & well, I like it, lol.

It’s so exciting, Halloween is almost here! While I have prepped a wishlist for this post, you will see in a future post of mine that we went with none of these. The handfasting is soaking up the vast majority of our funds so I really don’t have the money for my usual Halloween splurges. I can still window shop & drool over the seasonal selections though, lol. I can’t wait for the real festivities to begin & I hope you’re enjoying everything too. 😉 Today’s decor wishlist comes to us from Target, one of my fave stops for decor window shopping. 😀 I know the names of the items are a bit redundant, but the pieces are still worth the look. 😉

Fantastical Friday: Random Goth Thoughts

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

With October a few short months (okay, feels like it’s taking all of eternity LOL) away & trying to prep for matrimony my mind has been filled with dark & dreamy visions. So naturally much of my wishful searches at various shops have been with this general theme. I’ve found some pretty epic things from many, many different shops that I would so love to have, but I’m trying to stay on task so I haven’t actually been letting my impulses buy, buy, buy like they want, lol. That you may, if you’re into that sort of thing, gaze fondly at but a few of the dark treasures I have uncovered I made a list of a small assortment of items of interest found at Walmart that I have been considering (but mostly holding myself in check with every ounce of will I can muster, lol). While none of these items are expensive, it’s just far to easy to nickle & dime my accounts to death & now is the time for restraint with the remodeling & impending nuptials, so for now window shopping is the best I can do. 😉

Goth Thoughts1) Deluxe Goth Emo Punk Bone Collection Skeleton Hands Earrings ($2.14)
2) Black Leather Spinning Spider Wristband Goth Metal ($9.96)
3) Bling Jewelry 925 Sterling Silver Goth Heart Skull and Crossbones Stud Earrings ($12.99)

Fantastical Friday: Goth Wedding Decor

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

t’s natural that I would continue to muse on this topic, lol. Some of these beautiful pieces, from Amazon, I will not be able to order in time, with so much being funneled into the big day & the remodel of the room that is to be ours. These are so great that I will likely have to make some later orders for various reasons. I especially love the little wooden coffins & think it might be fun to paint them, perhaps using them as pencil boxes & cute gifts (okay, you probably already knew I was weird, LOL). The candle stand, candelabra & candlesticks are also striking my fancy a LOT so they are also among my wishlist. I think I will have to get one of those lanterns, it’s just plain awesome & in my colors too. So here’s a list of things that would be amazing to have for a goth wedding.

Goth Wedding Decor1) Decorative GREY GRAY Rose Gothic Goth Wedding Flower Halloween Decoration Décor ($1.99)
2) Purple Moroccan Candle Lantern ($12.50)
3) 13 All Black Wooden Rose Flowers ($12.99)
4) Midnight Rose Black & Red Floral Stem Large, Halloween, Goth ($13.19)

Fantastical Friday: Zombies :D

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Those of you who’ve been following my blog for a while are no doubt aware of my deep & abiding love for horror, which naturally goes into the realm of the zombie apocalypse. I have to mention that my heart hangs a bit low at this time, while Daryl is in a time of crisis & no one knows yet if he lives. ❤ Being something of a comic fan of The Walking Dead as well I really, really, really do not want to live through the loss of Glenn again, but I am not willing to trade Daryl for him. I would like to keep the core cast as much as possible & also note that Denise died in the place of Abraham, which both pleased & upset me. Maybe I should stop babbling about my stories….. Not sure if I’m spoiling anything, but the build up to the season finale, which comes on Sunday, is somewhat traumatic & I imagine episode 16 is going to be worse……. Anyway, I was shopping around at Amazon & found a few cool things, have to say the zombied Wonder Woman is perhaps the most horrific item I have ever seen in my life, LOL.

On a semi-related note, last week I was out shopping, which I’m sure comes as no shock to you, well maybe that it wasn’t a virtual shop, LOL. Anyway, after I checked out & my man & I went to the parking lot, we found ourselves in an interesting stick figure situation…. I’m sure we’ve all seen the stick figure family decals that are on a LOT of cars, well the car on the side closest to the store had an obviously zombified family of stick figures. The car on the other side had a well armed stick figure family & was captioned below, “we hate zombies” & we had the uncomfortable position of being between the zombies & the zombie hunters, LOL. Thought that silly little moment might amuse you, maybe even as much as it amused me at the time. 😀

Zombies1) Original Wonder Woman DC Comics Zombie String Doll Keychain ($6.13)
2) Artix A+ Zombie Outbreak Response Squad GLO Womens T-shirt Tee ($8.99)
3) New! Plants Vs Zombies Punk Style Slippers Winter Warm Shoes ($10.82)
4) Women’s ZOMBIE KILLER White Tank Top ($17.95)
5) Cat – Zombie Cat Shirt: I would push you in front of Zombie ($18.99)
6) Women’s If Zombies Chase Us I’m Tripping You Funny T-Shirt ($20.99)
7) Losnger Women’s Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 T Shirt ($23.99)

Fantastical Friday: Goth Jewelry Picks

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

It has been a while since I indulged my goth side, so I thought it would be nice to revisit. I know I have mentioned before that as a girl I was technically “goth” but the classification came into being later. A friend of mine used to tell me I was goth before it was cool, LOL. I have to admit though, being a teenager is hard, I would not want revisit that age & am so relieved to be away from that time in my life. I think the difficulties mostly arise from the fact that it’s easier to identify what a teen is not than what the teen is, for instance you are not a child, but you are also not an adult. In that turbulent time of hormonal fluctuation & powerful emotions, that frequently contradict each other, it’s just easier to identify with the “darker” side of things. For me I have to say that it was an effective coping mechanism & of course some of the styles that I thought were cool back in the day still strike my fancy. Maybe I should just show you some of the things I found an Amazon rather than babble on mostly incoherently, LOL.
