You like art? You like gothy ladies painted beautifully out of watercolors? Then I think you should buy this. I assure you I will be forever jealous.
A long time ago, during my first attempt at community college, I met Robert Schofield who was then a zine creator and webzine founder. He was one of the prominent goths of my younger years. But he moved to Portland and I think it’s fair to say that when you make a big move from one place to another, you evolve naturally and sometimes that means leaving a lifestyle behind. I feared I’d never see my favorite ginger as a goth again, but alas! He has granted me this gift: A colorless photo of him in a supposed haunted place called The Witch’s Castle in Forest Park. It brings such sweet joy to my decaying heart.
Check out Robert’s current project, Grounds for Dismissal, where he reviews coffee shops around Portland.
My friend Zaira posted this on her Facebook this week. It’s pretty much one of my favorite pictures of high school goth girls ever.
Every blog needs photos to celebrate beauty, right? I was instantly inspired by this badass pic of Jamie and thought “I need more hot gothy chicks on my blog” and hence, “Hot Goths” was made into a new category on I Swear to Goth. Jamie resides in Brooklyn, where she is pretty much the coolest chick ever. This is all biased: We’ve been friends for many years. And I swear, we’re not related. Follow her on Twitter or something.
Want to contribute? Make sure it’s your own personal photo, you have everyone’s consent and send it my way! Also accepting hot goth boys. Please.
