The Goth Challenge - Day 12

What's your gothic inspiration?

Long before this Green Fairy emerged from her tomboy shell, she always kept a strong love of anything Victoriana close to her black (and green!) little heart.

And I still do! It doesn't have to be goth in any facet, but anything from that fundementally-romantic era of human history incites such wistful longing in me and slight regret that I had to be born about a hundred and fifty years too late.

That's not to say that I'm not ridiculously grateful for flushing toilets, sanitary pads and women's suffrage!

Furthermore I don't know if this one needs o be said, but I guess I'm gonna say it anyway;

Malevolent, mysterious and green-hued; everything I aim for.

As for individuals...Well, where better to start then..

Damn this man is talented, and so handsome. I'd toss my 'no-marriage-for-me' policy out the window in an instant for this man.

It took me the longest time to choose a picture of Jenni for this post, because I'm currently so in love with her look. She's so amazing...Most of my extravagant make up is inspired by her...

I'm of the opinion that if you've never read any Robert Browning, you haven't lived. My favourites and two of his most famous works are 'The Laboratory' and 'Porphyria's Lover'. Read them. Now.

It's pretty much at that stage where whether or not you like the lovely Mrs Batbrat, if you're goth you're gonna have to have heard of her at one stage or another...
