Once again, the dark fashions come out and it’s time to see what people will be wearing out to clubs until the world’s end 2012, but contrary to popular belief, the world does not end with you. Dammit, why do you have to be so conceited?
Oh, right, goth blog…

The dark, edgy, sub-cultural, fascist, cyber and generally Eldritch fashions are back once more, with the return of Circa Nocturna, Australia’s premiere gothic and sub-cultural fashion event.
For starters, no, this blog is not abandoned… I’m just having real trouble being motivated enough to do things for it lately. However, today strikes me as a day for procrastination, so I’m writing numerous articles and scheduling them. My apologies to people if they’re out of date by the time they post.
There are two parts to this review: There’s my rant about why, from an organisational perspective, this is a bloody shambles and could be done way better. There will also be the part where I go on about it as someone that attended it and had a bloody good time. Please keep in mind that one is my professional opinion, as an events manager, and the other is personal, and the two should be treated separately. (more…)
Life is peachy as someone who is “fashio-chromatically challenged*” pretty much year round. Black goes with everything. You stand out in a crowd. People remember you. You look sexy. Old people avoid you like you’re carrying the plague, which, knowing your penchant for sexual proclivities may actually be a more realistic fear than you’re actually giving it credit for.
Well, it’s not all good. Summer, particularly an Australian Summer, particularly a Melbourne Summer is actually pretty bad. But what can you do? Exposing sensitive pale skin to the sunlight it’s likely to burn, or worse, tan!
But if you’re wearing layers of clothing, in a colour that actively absorbs energy from light and converts it to heat, in materials that normally are synthetic and trap both heat and moisture like the 7th circle of hell, you are quite likely to suffer from a temperament that is an order of magnitude worse than usual gothicly inclined sarcasm.
Or possibly heatstroke.
Depends how hungover you actually are at the time.
As great as you might look in clothes from Marquis & De Sade or PurPur, your dry cleaning & ambulance bills will skyrocket. Well, as the summer months creep up, I’m going to attempt to share a few tips on how actually enjoy Summer without having to sacrifice style. Yes, you don’t have to suffer (even though life is suffering! *back of palm to forehead*) through the heat, or the ignominy of having your face melt off during the middle of the day.
