The Satanic Temple

Never Let Your Activism Be Artless: An Interview With Lucien Greaves of The Satanic Temple

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing The Satanic Temple‘s Lucien Greaves about art, activism, and what religion means as a framework rather than a faith. “Recently” isn’t quite right — these questions were written back in February, as you might notice by the news reference in one of them, but we hope you’ll forgive us […]

How Not To Be Seen: Unlearning Invisibility

A few months ago Sam invited the staff writers to pen some personal pieces for Haute Macabre. I’ve since considered writing about a variety of subjects that interest me, but there’s something else, something much more personal that’s been on my mind for a very long time and this suddenly seemed like a singular opportunity to […]

Hidden Velvet3

The Somber Poetry Of Dreams: The Collage Art Of Hidden Velvet

The enigmatic artist known as Hidden Velvet seemed to appear on my radar overnight, and yet, whilst gazing at the somber elegance of her surreal collages, I feel that I have been carrying velvety fragments of her assemblages with me, tucked into the shadowy corners of my heart, for all of my life. A floating cloud softly obscures […]

Macabre Muse: Louisianna Purchase

photo by Muted Fawn Hailed as Austin’s best drag performer by the Austin Chronicles in 2016, Louisanna Purchase is stepping over Sharon Needles’ grave as Kween of Horror Drag (no shade, Sharon, but you’re a little less spooky and a little more sultry now than you were on Drag Race). Louisanna’s Clark Kent is Chad […]

New Video Post! GRWM with Winged Eyeliner Tutorial

New video post! Today I uploaded a simple Get Ready With Me with a little bit of a winged eyeliner tutorial. I messed up my eyeliner a thousand times while filming this, but showed the quickest fix possible in the video otherwise this would have been at least an hour long. This has been my […]

Haute Macabre Approved: Olivia Emily

Every once in a while I stumble across a personal fashion blog that really just blows me away. I love personal sites because they let you see which items become staples and favorites for someone, and how those things get repurposed over time. Plus, I love the idea of variations on a theme, which is […]

Necromany Cosmetica

Necromany Cosmetica

For months now, I’ve been impatiently waiting for Necromancy Cosmetica to restock their shop. They’ve been completely sold out of their vegan, cruelty free matte lipstick collection since the winter, and have finally restocked!

The long awaited sister site to BloodMilk Jewels is BloodMilk’s Exquisite Corpse project. Finding its roots in the Parisian Surrealist Movement, Exquisite Corpse is a collaborative game in which the participants continuously add on to a piece of art, poetry, or writing, to create an end result of married stylistic approaches. With this in mind, […]

Shop Kadabra Harness

Shop Kadabra

  Shop Kadabra has completely stolen my heart and wrapped it up in a black satin harness. These are a solid step up from strappy bralettes, and look incredible under a low cut or sheer top (or on their own, if you are a far more adventurous type than I). Fully adjustable, so each fits perfectly, and […]

Danny van Ryswyk Tender Loving Darkness figurine

Danny van Ryswyk

Danny van Ryswyk has been slowly creeping into my peripheral vision for many months now, and his chilling figures have recently exploded into clear view. His 3D sculptures and digital art find their inspiration in Victorian Memento Mori, and an extraterrestrial experience at an early age influenced his monochromatic palette. Quiet and seemingly innocuous children are […]
