Happy Halloween from Uncle Alfred!

It's easy to forgot that Halloween is actually supposed to be terrifying, what with all the plastic drugstore witches and drunk sexy nurses and Netflix' endless movies about college coeds you didn't like anyhow getting bumped off in interesting ways. So here's some Alfred Kubin, to wash all those simpering plastic skeletons out of your craw. 20120404-211216 20120404-211411  ccf13072010_00012 kubin-der-bock-1904 Fiendies IN POST

Death Becomes Her :: Victorian Mourning at the MET

Death Becomes Her :: Victorian Mourning at the MET on Haute Macabre Mourning Ensemble, 1870-1872 This winter welcomes an incredible exhibit to the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC : Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire. Exploring the aesthetic development and cultural implications of mourning fashions of the 19th and early 20th centuries with approximately 30 ensembles, it reveals the impact of high-fashion standards on the sartorial dictates of bereavement rituals as they evolved over a century. Death Becomes Her opened this week, and will be running until February 1, 2015. The MET has been incredibly generous to share with Haute Macabre the full series of images of the show's incredible pieces for those of us unable to attend in person. Accompanying the exhibit is a full range of jewelry in the fashion of the era available in the museum gift shop.

PSA :: Disco Witch Vintage + Haute Macabre Shops on Vacation

Disco Witch Vintage   No big shop update this week, as I am enjoying a much deserved vacation in beautiful Los Angeles for the weekend, and then returning to my beloved New Orleans for some proper Halloween celebration. I'll resume shipping for the Disco Witch + the Haute Macabre shop right after Halloween, and will be stocking the vintage shop with loads of new listings. I've got a giant pile of vintage occult books, divination cards, fortune telling tea cups, a closet full of vintage clothes, and even an antique spirit board coming up in the Disco Witch shop, and we'll be opening up pre-orders for our exclusive Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab fragrances for Haute Macabre just as soon as I return. Happy Hauntings, friends!! hysteria-1 Disco Witch Vintage Disco Witch Vintage Disco Witch Vintage Disco Witch Vintage Disco Witch Vintage Disco Witch Vintage Disco Witch Vintage   Fiendies IN POST
