The Fashion Vampyre: Dark Fairy Goth Pt4 “What Lies Beneath” – by Griffin M

The Dark Fairie is, it is said, amused by our fashions and by how our styles are reflective of the fears and insecurities we have – and how we present ourselves to others. Fairies both light and dark can be amused by human behavior and will imitate our styles in the most outlandish ways, our looks. Of course there are the naked or poorly clothed fairie best known as a type of House Brownie. Such beings are quite helpful until the well-meaning person decides to give a new pair of clothes to their household helper. Then all hell breaks loose.

The Fashion Vampyre: Dark Fairie Goth Pt3 – If the Shoe Fits – by Griffin M

Segment three on Dark Fairie has turned out different to how I expected.

Dark Fairie… It’s a goth style that at usually looks fantastical and outlandish, of wearing wings, horns or pointed ears, of extravagant lashes and ornate swirls & designs drawn on the face. One might ask, “OK …where can I wear and when can I wear that?” Continue reading

The Fashion Vampyre: Industrial Goth…A Social Introspection – by Griffin M

Industrial Goth: According to a friend of mine, it’s the bare -bones of Goth fashion. Instead of lace, velvet, flowing dresses, it’s t -shirts, cargo pants, boots and sneakers. The color palette runs from black to all shades of browns and greens. To offset this rather plain, hence one use of the word industrial, the hair can be bright red, orange, purple, blue. Sometimes it’s black with bold streaks of color; falls for women ..Mohawks for men. Continue reading

The Fashion Vampyre: Chokers… So Quick, So Easy – by Griffin M

Chokers…slim and elegant, maybe a garnet in the center. Or chokers hugging the entire neck, creating an alluring come -hither theme. Why are they so expensive? They don’t have to be. Making your own is so easy! Continue reading
