The Goth Challenge Day Four: Name a stereotype or cliche you can relate to.

Hello Darlings.

Exciting news, I cut all my hair off. I'll share photos tomorrow. I know how far behind I am in posting. But I've been in a funk recently. I felt like I was going through the most basic motions but I just felt dead. It's hard to describe but I go through moods like that from time to time. Now I'm back and ready to spam your blogger dashboards once again, hah.

 Name a stereotype or cliche you can relate to.

  •  I love cemeteries. I enjoy walking through them and looking for them whenever I'm on the road. I find most of them have pretty landscaping and they are always so peaceful.(let's go have a cemetery picnic! :D )
  • You'll find striped stockings in my sock drawer and yes, I do enjoy wearing them. I actually found a pair the other day I want to go and buy. (green and black striped. How cute! )
  •  I definitely relate to the "creative" bone that we're supposed to be born with. You could lock me away for years and years but as long as you kept the paper and pens/paints/ etc. coming I could care less. [dramatic I know but oh so true.]
 I LOVE halloween shopping. That's because you get to stock up on all your day to day goodies for half off.


  •  I love watching shows and reading books about the paranormal. Trust me, I haven't missed a Ghost Adventures episode yet.
  • I enjoy the vampire subculture, but not like I used to. I've read the Ann Rice series but other than that I find they're too romanticized today and aren't portrayed as they actually are. ( I like books like the Encyclopedia of the undead... Which I own. :) )
 Good night darlings. Stay warm and snug in your lil' coffins.



  1. hahaha my favorite goth stereotype are bats and bugs and spiders and black cats...i love spooky critters...

    1. Haha, you're right! I totally forgot about spooky animals. Thanks for reading and leaving a comment. :)

  2. I know what you mean about the vampires. I worshipped Anne Rice, but the twilight craze killed everything for me for a while. Which was probably pretty bad timing, cause if I had started liking vampires during the twilight craze, my mum probably would have thought I was more normal.

    I read Interview with the Vampire again a while back, and it was still so wonderful, and I mourned what happened to vampire literature. My greatest fear is that someone will make a movie of the Vampire Chronicles with the cast of Twilight.

    1. The twilight craze really stirred things up for supernatural novels which is a curse and not a blessing in my eyes. The novels that were out weren't very good and the ones being printed now are even worse, haha.

      That is something to definitely be feared, I pray it never happens! Although I think it would be so terrible that no one would take the risk to produce it. -fingers crossed-

      Perhaps we'll just have to start producing our own vampire novels? A classic vampire novel revival of sorts, what do you say? Also if you are out of vampire literature for the time being I highly suggest the encyclopedia of the undead by Bob Curran. It talks more on the ideal of vampires from a cultural and psychology point in human society throughout the years but it is definitely a great read. It also highlights other myths and legends.
