Goth Challenge - Day 18 to 25

Worst hair experience.

When I was a kid, my mum used to brush my hair and she was never gentle. I have an overly sensitive scalp so every day it was agony. My mum got sick of my crying so she made me cut all of my hair off. I was already teased constantly at school as it was and after that it increased 10 fold because I looked revolting. I was already about a foot taller than everyone else, had massive glasses because my mum used my nanna's old frames to save money and now I had a disgusting haircut. Primary school wasn't all that pleasent.

Luckily enough when I hit high school I suddenly realised I hated everyone and didn't really care what they thought. I'd instead get extremely angry that skanky, dumb bitches at school thought they had the right to make my life hell. So eventually I stopped holding in my anger and I guess that's how I got the nickname 'the scary bitch' in senior years. Buuuut I've already gone off track so I'm not going into this any more :P

Share beauty advise and take a photo of your make up.

Well I'm not wearing any make up so I can't take a photo but I suppose I can share some beauty advice.

-How about giving the twirls and swirls on the sides of your face a rest for a while, hey?

-Sometimes wearing bright lipstick and eyeshadow together looks a little bit too much.

-Fake nails look like shit, and I fear if I say this those who wear them will scratch my eyes out; but yeah...They look cheap

If you could dye your hair any colour what would it be?

Greeeeen! :D I've wanted green hair for a long time and I love it. I also think one day I would like to try pure white long hair.

What body mod do you have or have you considered?

I have an industrial, both lobes, high cartilage piercing on the opposite side to the industrial (dunno the proper name for that) and septum.

In the past I have considered a labret, medusa and munroe but I'm unsure about getting any more facial piercings. Currently I'm considering getting my conch or tragus done, perhaps in celebration if I get this new job I'm going for next week in Melbz.

If you could attend any Goth event what would it be?

Whitby and WGT! I plan to attend both at some time during my life. I have a few mates that attend WGT every year, so hopefully I can go with them perhaps!

Your favourite artist or photographer.

Kate O'Brien is my favourite photographer.

Czech her out.

Name the best websites for Goths.

The Ultimate Goth Guide! :D I adore Amy, she's such a sweetie (and hopefully she gets her computer up and running again soon!).

Did you ever consider leaving the subculture?

I don't think it's possible, because it would mean leaving myself; and I'm not quite sure how to go about that :P But for a long time I didn't associate with other members of the subculture, and sometimes I wonder about my decision to start trying to make friends that share the love of the gothic subculture because there's a little too much drama involved in it for me...However I'm pretty good at avoiding the drama!


  1. Same on the whole "twirls on the side of the face" thing... I only do that occasionally, for cosplays and photoshoots; and even then I try not to overdo it. However, I think it's one of those typical babybat phases, like oversized bandshirts...

  2. My worst hair experience happened when I was 14 and dyed my hair black. Only it didn't come out black but rather a patchy mix of navy and grey. It was disgusting and I refused to leave the house for an entire summer. Then I got it stripped out and dyed but it came out an unfortunate shade of blonde which did nothing for me. Oh god, memories. Just looked up that photographer, lovely stuff. :)
