    I’m in love with the entire Haunted Circus collection, but I think my favorite is the Spelterini Highwire dress. I’ve always loved black and white stripes (probably a result of my childhood being filled with Beetlejuice and other Tim Burton movies), but that dress uses them to perfection. The little trim on the hem is a nice touch and the overall style of it is just so darling and precious!

  2. Kohlea Says:

    I really liked the aristocracy gothic blouse, it would be a nice wardrobe staple piece. It’s even priced perfectly for the giveaway at $75 :).

  3. Kyna Says:

    Tuxedo dress with skull bow tie!!!

  4. C. Says:

    I really like the Sugar Cookie cotton blouse. It looks very light and soft which would be absolutely perfect for the summer. The fact that it has a corset back makes for a better, adjustable fit.

  5. Millie Says:

    Definitely the Lapin du Morte bunny dress!

  6. maria Says:

    So hard to choose! But I think I would live in the Iris Violet Goth Dress:

  7. Azy Says:

    The Viola Corset skirt hands down. The ruffles!

  8. Regina Says:

    I can see myself haunting the office in “Haunted Circus Spelterini Highwire Dress”. Loving this entire collection!

  9. Nijimei Says:

    I love the Verily zipper party dress SO MUCH. It’s a perfect everyday look but with a hint of darkness.

  10. Alice Says:

    Everything is lovely, but the best for me would be the Iris Violet Goth Dress, good to hide a bit of belly :D

  11. Caitlin Says:

    I gotta say, considering the lolita look they are aiming for, they have a long way to go. The product pictures don’t always show the right item (what?) and some of them are downright bad. Looks like they are still working on adding proper product pictures for each item, which is good. They need to show better pictures of the colors available, it’s a bit messy as is. And the materials… oh boy.

    Anyways, I scoured and scoured the site, and I think the Chrysanthemum dress is the best.

  12. Dani Says:

    I’ve been a fan of Gloomth for a while! My personal fav is the Wicked Thursday top.

  13. Gee Says:

    I LOVE the Gloomth Sugar Cookie Corset Blouse Cream Version amazing!

  14. Christine Says:

    I love that “Scarlet” skirt. It would fit perfectly with a lot of my closet.

  15. Anne Says:

    I am drooling over the Ghost Damask Skirt. I love Gloomth’s designs. Everything is always so gorgeous and well constructed.

  16. Katie Says:

    I like the Plumes of Death skirt, it looks like it’s lots of fun to me :)

  17. Filthycoffin Says:

    Gloomth’s Haunted Circus Aviatrix Romper
    It’s so infectious it can’t leave my mind.

  18. Alexis H. Says:

    Since their new Carmilla collection went up I’ve been in love with the Carmilla Dress! Velvet and ruffles and… *shivers*

  19. Rebecca Says:

    I’m in LOVE with the Iris Bow dress. Love the color, the shape, the style, all if ut!

  20. Rose Says:

    I really love the Gloomth Tuxedo dress, I can see it being easy to wear casually!

  21. Chelsea Says:

    I’ve been eyeballing the Lapin du Morte bunny dress for a looooong time now! Some day…

  22. Gwen Says:

    The mounring glory cotton dress is just too cute!

  23. Steff Metal Says:

    LOVE Gloomth – the piece I am most coverting from their collection is the Aristocracy blouse, shortly followed by the Pepper puff-sleeved shrug.

  24. Nicollette Says:

    I adore their “Mourning Glory” dress. I’ve been eying that dress for some time on Etsy. It’s so perfect. :)

  25. Laura Brasinha Says:

    Wow, “Lapin du Morte” (on their webshop) is simply amazing! *WANT*

  26. Theresa Says:

    The Valerian Damask Jumperskirt Dress! It’s absolutely beautiful!

  27. Irene Lopez Says:

    It’s impossible for me to choose between the Monarch Corset Blouse + Victorian Bustle Skirt or the Valerian Damask Jumperskirt Dress, I’d go for all of them!!

  28. Tiffany Says:

    My favourite piece in their shop has to be the Union Jack Dress.

  29. Bethany Says:

    My favorite item from Gloomth (at their shop) is the “Pale Tuesday
    Corset Blouse”.

  30. Kirsten Says:

    I would love to wear the “Gloomth Amaryllis Tiered Skirt with Eyelet Lace” for spring!

  31. Jackie Says:

    I’ve been in love with their Tuxedo Dress for a very long time <3

  32. Natalie Says:

    My favorite item of their’s has always been the “Ghost Damask Skirt” (Worn with the “Pepper Shrug”) You almost never see gray used in goth/alt clothing, and its kind of a nice change. Its elegant, but it still has an edge to it. Not to mention it has this perfect silhouette with the big puffed shoulders, nipped in waist, and wide skirt. I’m also a big fan of the autumn/Pumpkin photoshoot they did for the main image for it.

  33. Renee Says:

    Gloomth Chrysanthemum Dress. It was hard to pick because I love so many items.

  34. Scary Lady Sarah Says:

    I would wear the hell out of the “Gloomth Ghost Skirt Corset Damask” (listed on their Etsy site.) I’d wear it at many of my DJ gigs & whilst playing guitar on stages across the world.
    Yes, indeed. :)

  35. Jessie Says:

    I’ve already got a couple of their pieces in my wardrobe, but the Ghost damask corset skirt is next on my list.

  36. Fran Says:

    I love the color of the “Chrysanthemum” dress.

  37. shaneyllynn Says:

    Love the valance corset dress!
    Also, love the fact that you guys have plus sizes AND that it’s the same attire as the smaller sizes, that’s hard to find and deserves so much respect

  38. Leigh Says:

    They are all sugarspun sweet but my favorite is the Spelterini Highwire dress.

  39. Sam Says:

    The cheri pettipants adorable. I also like the bell silhouette used in many of the dresses.

  40. Stéphanie Says:

    The entire Haunted Circus collection is fantastic! The Tamer Vest is definitely a favourite though.

  41. Alice Says:

    it’s so beautiful *_* it’s very difficult to choose but I think I prefer the gloomth Valerian Damask ^^

  42. ali Says:

    Oh, I love the Valerian dress! victorian style forever! :) <3

  43. Mirona Says:

    All of their clothing is very beautiful and feminine. I would wear the ”Daisy” dress.

  44. Whitney Josephine Says:

    Looooove the Iris Violet Goth Dress—very sweet and Jane Austen-y!

  45. OpheliaAutumn Says:

    The Gloomth Avarice Victorian Shrug is just so beautiful! I’ve always wanted a shrug like this, and in red it looks great!

  46. Bernadette Says:

    I pretty much am in love with the entire site, but the “Gloomth Tuxedo Dress” is my favorite.

  47. Camilla Taylor Says:

    Love the Gloomth Academy parade jacket

  48. Michaela Says:

    I’m fawning over their Carmilla dress, coming soon!

  49. Jessica Says:

    SO in love with the Duchesse dress!

  50. Nicole Says:

    The Mourning Glory dress is great! :)

  51. Vesper Says:

    The Aristocracy blouse! Such a great staple that can be dressed up or down. :)

  52. Katie Contests Says:

    Love the Mircalla Capelet!

  53. Rachel Says:

    The circus collection is to DIE for.
    I am a sideshow performer and I would wear any piece in this collection to perform in but I could really see myself performing fire breathing or glass walking in the Star carousel dress.

    I am in love with stripes and patterned clothing, but the thing that really makes this dress great is the lovely shape in the skirt that looks like an upside down tea cup. Lovely!

  54. Maus Says:

    It’s a tie for me between the “Nautical” Pinafore Dress and the “Union Jack” dress <3

  55. Felix Says:

    My personal favorite hands-down is the Medic dress, but Verdant is a close runner-up!

  56. Lisa Says:

    Anything with stripes allways makes my day, but personally I’d pick the new Chrysanthemum dress, since spring is coming. Ruffles galore! XD!!!

  57. mel Says:

    I am in love with the Aviatrix romper from the Haunted Circus collection. :-)

  58. Savannah Etzler Says:

    I adore the Gloomth’s Haunted Circus Aviatrix Romper :)

  59. Rebecca Hill Says:

    I’m a fan of the Ghost Damask skirt. My favorite corset skirt was the Sapphire (, but sadly they are all sold out.

  60. Maria Says:

    Really hard to decide! But if I had to pick one, I’d say the “Spellbound” shrug. I love those sleeves. <3

  61. leila Says:

    I can only choose one favorite?! If I must, the ghost skirt with damask overlay is luscious. <3

  62. krystle Says:

    definitely the valerian damask jumper skirt:

  63. LovleAnjel Says:

    I love the Opiate skirt – long, textured – so nice!

  64. temple terkildsen Says:

    love this little cape…would wear it every day at work as a shawl alternative in our cold office

  65. Shannon Says:

    I have been in love with the “Amaryllis” skirt forever. It’s a piece I would wear a lot through the year.

  66. Pandarita Says:

    By far my favorite. But there is so much to choose from.

  67. Heather Says:

    My favourite Gloomth item is the “Sorrow” Victorian Dress, it’s divine!

  68. Dawn Says:

    The “Valerian” Corset Dress is my favourite. It’s very difficult to choose just one design though!

  69. Waltz Says:

    The Apparition Dress is so pretty! It probably looks great in black.

  70. tona Says:

    Choosing is difficult… I know I’d wear the Shiro Lolita dress the most, but my heart swoons over the Apparation dress!

  71. Tequila Mockingbird Says:

    Lately I have been eyeing the “Nautical” Sailor Inspired Dress. I love that it’s on the shorter side and feminine. It was a really difficult choice. I just went with what my heart said when I went to the site. Next week I might have a crush on one of my other favs.

  72. Reject Superstar Says:

    I adore the “Valance” dress.
    The ability to use two layers of petticoats, the silhouette, the lovely rows of ruffles & bows, everything about it!

  73. Christine Says:

    The Apparition Dress is absolutely gorgeous.

  74. Iwona Says:

    god dammit, the choice was really hard! but the thing which caught my thought for longer was a ‘Gloomth Mourning Glory Dress’ <3

  75. Cristina Says:

    For me it would either have to be the “verily” party dress of the “avarice” shrug everything is just so gorgeous though!

  76. Extinction Says:

    I like the Odette dress best, very classic and I like that the bodice doesn’t look underworked like a lot of the other dresses do. But what is UP with the petticoat they are using for their lolita-style skirts. It’s supposed to look like a bell, not a tent!

  77. Stacy Says:

    I seriously love all of the Haunted Circus line — I live for black and white stripes — but I just can’t get over the tuxedo dress. Reminds me of a piece in the recent Saint Laurent Spring ’13 line. And the skull on the bowtie just totally completes it!

  78. Melissa Says:

    A few months ago, I would not have stood a chance at choosing just one favourite-but since the Chrysanthemum dress has been posted, that has all changed. Love it so much!

  79. Kristine Says:

    I’m loving the Ghost Damask skirt~

  80. Julianne Says:

    My favourite is definitely ‘Verdant’ – I’ve been lusting after it for years now!

  81. Catharine Bell Says:

    I love all of the corsets and petticoats. Black and white stripes are my first love, so this brand is amazing! Winning would be awesome since I’m about to have to buy everything you make: love, love LOVE.

  82. Catharine Bell Says:

    I love all of the corsets and petticoats. Black and white stripes are my first love, so this brand is amazing!

  83. Anastazia Says:

    My favorite has to be the Gloomth Carmilla Velvet and Cotton Dress. Love the combination of the two fabrics and all the ruffles!

  84. Trilliumgrl Says:

    The Iris Bow Dress, in several colors. I also wouldn’t turn my dainty little nose up at the Opiate skirt. Honestly though, there is a lot of pretty on their site.

  85. pogostick Says:

    Their Chéri Ruffled Pettipants.

  86. Robin Says:

    I like a lot of these, but with my pink hair, I’m going with “Verdant”.

  87. Adelina Says:

    i love everything! most of all the odette dress!

  88. antane Says:

    So many lovely items! I particularly like the Daisy dress.

  89. Cynthia Says:

    The Sorrow dress is definitely my favourite. It’s just perfect. But the Ghost skirt comes in a close second.
