VICTORIAN MOURNING JEWELRY 

During the Victorian era, it was common to wear “mourning jewelry”. This jewelry typically included hair from deceased loved one.

The deceased loved one’s hair would be carefully arranged within the brooch, often creating intricate pictures or designs.

Hair was considered to be an ideal keepsake, since it does not break down over time.

One of my goals in life is to own an authentic piece of Victorian mourning jewellery and if it features artwork made with hair, even better.

Anonymous said: Maybe you shouldn't wear fetish clothing if you don't wanna be looked at sexually...

That is really not the point of the illustration… I don’t think that I should justify this ask with a proper response, but I will anyway:

The illustrations aren’t pointing out that Goths shouldn’t be looked at sexually. It’s pointing out that Goths are stereotyped as wearing very particular things, having very particular sexual interests, and thinking in a particular way. 

I think you are also confusing the use of the word ‘fetish’. Yes ‘fetish’ is a style of clothing, and Goths are often confused with people who dress ‘fetish’ (which is different). Being a Goth in my opinion is about the music, the culture, the appreciation for darker beauty, and the fashion, not just the fashion. Yes, some Goths do dress fetish and in very sexual outfits, however many don’t wear anything associated with bondage or fetishism. In the illustration, the word is used under this definition:

"a form of sexual desire in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to a particular object, item of clothing, part of the body, etc.
"a man with a fetish for surgical masks”
synonyms: fixation, sexual fixation, obsession, compulsion, mania”
It is also trying to point out that we are not just objects to be looked at, and I think this applies to everyone. People are individuals with personalities that go far beyond how they look or dress, and more people need to see that. This is an issue that goes far beyond the subculture.

Hello lovely! I apologise for the delay, I have been so busy!

As for eyes, there is always a fine line between smokey eye and raccoon. I would suggest not going too heavy on the lids, but a nice thick liner to make those beautiful blue eyes pop. Mascara will work nicely to outline your eyes, but don’t go too heavy and clumpy, you will want something that fans out the lashes.

For lips, I think a really dark red would look good. Not hooker red, more of a berry-stained red, something with a hint of purple as well.

I don’t pride myself on being good with makeup advice, but these are some thoughts that I had! I hope you like them and they work for you :)
