Ethereal - Bodies, Ritual and Desire, by Janet Parker - Smith, Claude Jones, & Cleo Gardiner"Hidden" is an annual sculpture exhibit put on by the Rookwood Cemetery, Australia's largest graveyard. The exhibit serves as a sort of community outreach, showing people that cemeteries are beautiful, interesting places worth visiting for more than funerals. While there are many sculptures in this year's display, this one caught me especially. Imagine walking through a graveyard and finding this, a suspended wedding dress with cloven hooves and harpies' hands, swaying ever-so-slightly in the breeze. See more of the exhibit.

So read it again. Heck, read it to an impressionable child. After all, it's Gothtober.

I don't hit the clubs too much these days, so of course this is causing a wardrobe-related panic. ZOMG WHAT WILL I WEAR??? Here are a few things I found while trying to answer that question: (And for any old-school San Francisco Gawth kids that haven't gotten the word, House of Usher will be returning in just a few weeks).
