My Non-Goth Fashion Idols

You're not going to see any of the usual idols here, like Emilie Autumn, or Razor Candi, or dead old ladies (reference!!).
Sure, I love their looks and style, and hell yeah I'd wear it, but I feel like Goth mixed with other styles suits me more.
I'm really influenced by deathrock, tradgoth, hipster fashion, 2008 scene fashion, 80s/90s revival, and Harajuku. That's definitely a melting pot and I've talked about a lot of it before, but I like it and think it works.

Why I Prefer the Terms 'Alternative' and 'Majority Culture'

This is a very small issue and probably does not deserve an entire blog post.
It kind of irks me when people hate on the term 'alternative'.

Explanation after the jump.

Shoe Resources: For Those of Us Who Refute Birkenstocks

I'm really obsessed with shoes. Not just the usual buckled platforms, or lace up knee highs like proper Goths are supposed to. I like shoes that cater to all across the alternative subculture board. Here, I've compiled a list of sites to supply you with whatever your shoe loving hearts could desire.

My Shoe Collection

I'm very proud of my shoes.

Now I'll share.

Finding Goth Clothing and My Own Wardrobe.

I've decided that since I never have inspiration and am terrified of discussing controversial issues, I would like to talk about my favorite subject.


I really, really love clothes. I love shopping. I love just looking at clothes, organizing, designing, everything about clothes.

Finding clothes? That's easier than you would think by the amount of posts about it on Goth blogs.

Inspiring Your Ensembles: A Spiral Into Nonsense

My best outfits always have a theme. Not my normal, day-to-day t-shirt and boots outfit; those indeed are effortless.

Goth Challenge- Days 8-20

I'm so behind on these, but they're good filler.

Day 8 – What's your worst and best experience with non-Goths?

 Worst experience? I don't have many. I get disdainful looks and comments occasionally. I don't really get openly mocked for dressing the way I do and no one really gives a rat's ass what kind of music you listen to unless they want to be friends with you.
Once, I was walking behind a group of girls in the hallway of my school. They were discussing the cons of wearing a shirt from Forever 21 emblazoned with upside down crosses. One said, "They're Satanic and I don't want nobody thinkin' Jesus Christ ain't my lord and savior."
Her friend looked at me behind them and said, "Speaking of Satanic..."
Of course, I butted in like a smartass and explained about St. Peter's cross and they pretended they were kidding about me and didn't understand about St. Peter's cross.

Best experience? I attract alternative kids like flies. I get complimented a lot. When I was a BabyBat I was wandering around a mall in a top hat, dress shirt, vest, striped socks, and shorts and someone stopped me to tell me I looked fabulous. And a little boy thought I was a magician.

Day 9 – What genre of music do you dislike?

As or....Goth music? I don't like rap, country, jazz, soul, metal, anything hardcore really, most emo, I don't like Punk really.
In Goth music, I don't like EBM. I don't like certain bands, but I think that's the only sub-genre I dislike.

Day 10 – What do you hate and love about the subculture?

I really dislike the way the subculture is thrown on everything as a label. I love the fusion of aesthetic and the variation.

 Day 11 – Is Goth a lifestyle for you?

Goth can't be a lifestyle, sillies. There's no Goth way to peel an orange or pay your bills. It's music, fashion, and aesthetics.

 Day 12 – What's your gothic inspiration?


I reblogged this and don't know if there is indeed a source

The Cure


Then I use a bunch of keywords for each specific outfit. I usually have a theme. I should probably get a lookbook.

Day 13 – What was your first band t-shirt?

I think it had the cover of the Green Day CD '21st Century Breakdown' on it. I sleep in it now.

 Day 14 – What was your best and worst DIY disaster.

They are always disasters. I do not make my own things. I can sew and glue and paint, but I don't DIY. I do not have that talent.

 Day 15 – Your favourite or most expensive item in your wardrobe.


I think my favorite items are my (VINTAGE FROM ABERCROMBIE IN '86) denim jacket, my (ALSO VINTAGE ABERCROMBIE) acid washed denim jacket, (VINTAGE FROM MY MOTHER WHO STOLE IT FROM HER UNCLE AFTER IT WAS USED IN A WAR IN 1988) olive army issue jacket, my Light as a Feather Stiff as a Board tshirt, my grey and black striped super skinny jeans, and my Demonia Fierce 130s.
My most expensive pieces (all above 100$) are my Demonia Fierce 130s, my Demonia Trashville 518s, my Doc Martens, and my Tripp guard jacket that actually isn't warm at all and is sort of uncomfortable.

Day 16 – What's the most casual you've ever dressed?

Casual for me is Converse, super skinnies (I own nothing else), a baggy tshirt, and a cardigan. That basic outfit is revolutionized around twice a week.

Day 17 – Your favourite Goth brand.

Demonia. I just really like shoes.

 Day 18 – Worst hair experience.

Ick. I used to have dark red hair and it was about eight inches long and I parted it in the middle and wore it natural (very curly).

 Day 19 – Share beauty advise and take a photo of your make up.

I only wear makeup when I'm Deathrocking it up. I don't have any advice. I'm bad at it.

Day 20 – If you could dye your hair any colour what would it be?

I have black hair with a blond undercut and black and purple cheetah spots. I think I've got what I want.


Oh, dear, DEAR Bixie Willow!

A user commented that she missed my posts! I've been inactive since December, and I'm sorry.
I have a lot of problems with inspiration for posts.
If any of you have anything you'd like me to write about, comment and I'll most likely do it.

I guess I should just give everyone an update on my life.

In May, I shaved off the back and sides of my head for a full undercut.
Then, I got my ears pierced.
THEN I went to a sci-fi convention in May and got all Gothed up and looked like a tramp
This has all resulted in my latest universal profile picture
Bum bum bum bum

Well, I'll start posting again. I promise. I have many people on Facebook pestering me about posting, so it will happen, guyz.
