Gothest haul ever

Lame title, I know. But I've gotten myself a bunch of things the past month or so, and thought I'd compile it all in one post and show it to you! I'll also include some party photos from this weekend at the end.

I'll show one book I've gotten. There are more, but this is the one I'm most excited about! It's a HUGE book about deathrock and it's origins. It's at least A4 sized and over 600 pages. I've made it our featured book in the book club I run on Gothy Discord, but I have no idea how long it'll take to read. I haven't read much in the past two weeks, but I've read a few chapters already. I will probably be posting a review when I finish it! You can buy it here.

I ordered two CDs from 13th Chime's Bandcamp page, and they kindly sent me Senex IV's debut album as well! The latter is a new band which features two members from 13th Chime. It's not exactly a goth band, but it's really interesting.

I bought all of these from a seller on Discogs. Lots of old goodies! While I prefer to support artists as much as I can, it can get hard when you HAVE TO order online to do so. Shipping, taxes and customs to Norway piles up to a lot, so it's rarely worth it to order unless you can get many from the same place. But at the same time I don't think there's anything wrong with thrifting music! It's fun to hunt, and a great way to grow your collection. When you do it online you can find specific albums you've been wanting for a long time but can't get where you live.

Note: With the situation around the world right now, I highly recommend supporting artists, especially smaller ones. They're losing a lot of money from having to cancel shows and tours, so buy their merch if possible, and digital music if you're into that!

KVD Beauty just launched here in Norway, so I stopped by a make-up store and got myself a brow pomade. Lately I've just used eyeshadow, and even though that has worked fine for me, why not try something that might be even better. I've tried it once so far, and MAN, it's so smooth and pigmented! There are photos where I have it on further down in this post.
Also bought the first black nail polish I've owned in.. almost 3 years. I bought a purple one recently too, but it was super cheap, so it flakes off instantly, haha. This black one is so pigmented you only need one layer! It's not the best when it comes to flaking, but when I have every other nail black and purple, the black is definitely looking good in comparison.



Just have to gush over these ADORABLE shoes! Got them second hand, I was SUPER excited to find a pair of shoes in size 35! I need at least that to wear dainty shoes like this. They fit me perfectly, and now I'm constantly wearing them around the house. Can't wait for summer so I can wear them out!

Also; I got cyberlox! A teenage dream has been fulfilled, and just at the right time! I don't own a respirator, I'm not really a fan of that look, but now I should have one, haha. I actually think the cybergoth look suits me! I've been a cybergoth on the inside for years, and now in the time of the toiletpapocalypse she's here!

Our local goth night got cancelled because of the virus (Norway is very affected), so my friend decided to host the pre-party for the whole night. Thursday I was smacked in the face with so many cancellations and just Norway shutting down in general, so we wanted to have SOME fun before the entire world goes to shit! I hope everyone is doing okay out there. I'll try to get some reading done and write up some blog posts.

  1. I agree, the cyber look seems to suit you very well. For what it's worth, I'm not a fan of respirators either. I like to see people's faces.

  2. We are all kind off affected by this, but I think that if people had taken the virus much more serious, we wouldnt be here by now.

    It sucks, but we all just have to hang in there 🖤
