I truly believe that once you dip your toes into the Goth world, you’ll never really leave. No matter how much pink we wear, no matter how may daisies we put in our hair, a walk to the graveyard will always be appealing. Here are some gorgeous gothic finds on Folksy that are sure to temp any ex-Goth. Aren’t we all still Goths on the inside, really?
First up I’ve picked a Miniature Graveyard Painting on wood by ‘Arty Bones’. This one reminds me of many walks to the graveyard – all the best graveyards have an archway of trees at the entrance. This piece feels nostalgic.
My second choice is this Silver bird Skull Pendant by Tracy Hills Jewellery. What I love about this is it’s macabre in the most delicate way. Tracy finds birds that have died of natural causes and gives them a second life as a keepsake. Her shop is full of various bird skulls, some with top hats. Choosing just one to home would be difficult!
Next up is this lovely Raven Print by Chasing the Crayon. This raven is so dainty in detail but has so much presence. The entire shop is full of wonderful illustrations but this one is a perfect match for any Goth on the inside.
I can’t help but fantasise about Porcelain and Pretty Things’ button bouquet, Pretty Disturbia’s gorgeous lace bracelet and Tallulah Blue’s circus ruff together as an outfit. Each piece is so delicate and each one would be perfect with a dusty pink dress. The perfect accessories for a walk down a dark and foggy forest!
EllyMental’s shop is full of the most wonderful jewellery, but this bat necklace is my favourite – it’s so sweet. The perfect way to show your inner Goth without changing your wardrobe to black.
Every inner Goth also needs a sidekick, and I think this lovely dolly by The Itinerant Bizarrium is the perfect one! There is so much detail in her lovely little figure, with her dusty pink hair and heavy eye make-up. The entire shop is full of potential Goth sidekicks but this one is my favourite.
Last but no means least we have Typelark’s Ouija card. This Ouija board card would be great for any friend, or for self-gifting.
Twinkle and Gloom is the odd world created by Welsh artist Lowri Roberts, where misery comes in shades of pink. Brought up in a family that valued creativity, Lowri now shares a shed with her maker dad, and it’s here that her odd illustrated world of weird kitties, gloomy bears in party hats, and feisty girls takes shape.
