The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC has just announced their fall exhibition this year will be entitled Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire. Approximately 30 ensembles will be on display, exploring the aesthetic development and cultural implications of mourning fashions of the 19th and 20th centuries.
Running late October, 2014 through February 1, 2015, more information can be found at MetMuseum.org.
Move over, Martha Stewart. Domestigoths, meet Christine McConnell. The creepy, crawly things this woman can do with sugar cookies will give you nightmares. Her DIY projects are somewhere between “genius” and “never sleeping again” ( baby face lightbulb???). And, at least according to her Instagram feed, she somehow creates all of this while looking like a John Waters 50’s housewife that will kill you in your sleep with a butcher knife.

New pieces added to my new shop, Disco Witch Vintage, with more coming very soon.
I’m currently working out a listing schedule for the shop, so that each week on a specific day + time all of the new pieces go live. I would love your feedback on which day of the week, and what time of day, is the best for you! Are Sunday evenings, just before GoT goes on when you’re checking your sites? Or maybe Tuesday mornings, when you’re at your desk?
Thank you all so very much for making Disco Witch Vintage’s first week a wonderful success!!
I have spied the lovely Kaiti Fink, creatress behind Heavy Metal Vomit Party, out and about in New Orleans, but have not yet been formally introduced. I plan on changing that promptly, as I would love to pick her brain and hear about her new collection inspired by the sigils and totems of The Goetia :: The Lesser Key of Solomon the King.
View this collection, and her other pieces, on her Heavy Metal Vomit Party Etsy Shop.
