World Goth Day
Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away, there was some damn country in the middle of an ocean that which had a radio channel who decided that it would be all sorts of cool and groovy to highlight different types of music. Each special snowflake of a genre got a whole day all to itself, to be hailed by a precious few, but mostly cause intense bouts of rage at the radio for playing nothing but crap music. May 22nd had the crappiest music of all: goth music.
And so it was, that casual-creatures of the night (after their day jobs at BT or Wimpy Burger or whatever the hell else creatures of the night do for scratch [Old Navy and Bath and Body Works, here]) had a whole day to get their goth on, for no other reason than WE HAVE A DAY. WHOOPIE. Because let’s face it: not every location will have the opportunities to go all-out as frequently as others. If I lived closer to the Cincinnati area, I’d be in better shape. But in HorseTown USA, you’ve got f*#%-all, and you might just get crap lobbed at you from passing vehicles if you try (been there, done that).
With stuff-flying-out-of-trucks in mind, I didn’t go as far into all-out territory as I would have wanted to in the past, but I still tried to wear a little pride. Colours of clothing choice were black accented with turquoise, and the makeup followed suit.

I also had Madd Style Cosmetix “Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang” tinted lip balm applied for relevance and win as it came to mind throughout the day. Sadly, it did not come to mind at the time I took pictures. C’est la vie or somesuch.
Check out that Endless Bathroom Closet of the Damned, too. My shameface… it is showing as I type.
