My Favorite Halloween/Gothic/Spooky Channels and Spooky Shows

The first two YouTube channels you need to check out, AFTER YOU CHECK OUT and SUBSCRIBE to MY CHANNEL, we’re recommeded to me by one of my best friends Jordan Giuliani. 

792E916B-78E6-49E8-8E80-49DAC65D9BEE

The first YouTube channel recommendation is, “Lair of Voltaire.” He does amazing DIY gothic projects for his lair and for the last two months he’s been checking out stores like Target, JoAnn’s, etc., which has inspired me a lot with his ideas.

The second YouTube channel Jordan recommended to me is called, “Maven of the Eventide,” where she reviews many, many, many vampire books, except maybe “Twilight.” Hahaha. Even if you’re not into Vampires, the way Maven speaks is very dramatic and funny. She puts on a Bela Legosa accent when she introduces her self and it’s so funny. I love her.

The last YouTube channel that I ran into is Ms. Sara Monster! I am obsessed with her. She is so gorgeous and does beauty tips for rock and roll/ goth girls like the perfect black lipstick, how she quickly does her makeup and hair before she goes to work, and reviews products and a lot more. I met her through YouTube and are becoming friends through Instagram. She’s a sweetheart and definitely recommend her. 

 

SHOWS:

“Curious Creations by Christine McConnell” You can watch Christine on Netflix and can see previews of her on her YouTube channel. She makes the coolest spooky inspired food, from starters to mains, to dessert. I’ve been inspired in making some of her delicious delicacies. 

 

BLOGS:

54E49F13-D0BC-4D5E-BEB3-5F655E8EEA78

I follow and love many blogs but my favorite spooky DIY blog is “Me and Annabel Lee.” She makes a lot of amazing DIY pieces plus she has a fantastic store that I might be buying from her soon. She also helped me a lot when I became part of the Samhain Society which I’m very grateful for!

   I’ve been wanting to feature the beautiful and amazing Rhonda Burnett for awhile and today is finally the day. I’ve known Rhonda for over three years and I refer to as my “Big Sister,” because she is just that. She is very nurturing, giving, and one of the kindest and strongest women I know. She also loves Halloween, the horror genre, and all things spooky as much as I do which is never a bad thing.

   Besides all the sweet qualities Rhonda has, she has the most amazing and sickest tattoos I’ve ever seen. She loves horror, especially Tim Burton and a lot of her ink are Burton characters which I absolutely am in love with. You can’t go wrong with Tim Burton in my opinion.

   She had a lot of ink done when I first met her and has gotten a lot more done since I’ve known her and I must say that all of her tattoos are well thought out as to where she wants them and what exactly she wants done. I love her attention to detail. Rhonda’s ink is so amazing that she has won awards for it and has been published in magazines which you can see below. Even her references are very specific to her style and don’t look like anyone else’s. Check out these photos and clips of her spectacular tattoos!

   Here is a little background how the gorgeous Rhonda fell in love with the horror genre and specifically Tim Burton films. 

 “When I was 5 my uncle Tom got me into classic horror films… My first one was Frankenstein. I called him Frankie because I couldn’t say Frankenstein… And it took off from there. I’ve been into horror every sense. I rented the movie The nightmare before Christmas for my sons and I to watch and fell in love with it.. From that point on I got into Tim Burton films.  I got my first sleeve of the nightmare before Christmas movie on my right arm which took about 5 months to complete. Then I went on to get more tattoos of some of my favorite Tim burton movies, like Beetlejuice and Lydia, Edward Scissorhands and Frankenweenie I eventually got a recent portrait of Tim Burton on my leg… I thought to myself I love his movies and him so much I thought I need a tattoo of him on me. So I that was the last tattoo I got. 3 of my tattoos have won numerous awards. I’ll send pictures when I get them all gathered.

I really like to dress up during the month of October into some of my favorite characters. My Edward Scissorhands tattoo was featured in Inc skin magazine as well as my Nightmare Before Christmas sleeve.”   -Rhonda

   Besides all the sisterly qualities she has that I mentioned above, Rhonda is also extremely artistic and can do her makeup to completely change her look and can make herself look like she stepped out of the movies which I absolutely love. I can’t get over her makeup skills and talent and if her and I lived closer together, we’d be doing our makeup together every day. Below are just some of the many looks she has created. It’s just a tiny taste. If I could I would post a lot more of her photos than I already have. I love showcasing other people’s talent and art, especially when it’s someone that I really love.

   I really admire Rhonda. She has such a kind and beautiful soul and is all about working hard and family which she loves more than anything else which is so beautiful. She also supports her friends and the work that they do, including myself and my art which I greatly appreciate. I also appreciate how much she loves Halloween, the horror genre, and all things spooky which is never a bad thing.

10 Looks For Summer: Outfit Nine: “Universal Monster Look”

I love mixing my pinup/rockabilly style with my horror inspired pieces. Since it’s almost Autumn, I wanted my last two summer outfits to look like that they can work during the summer as well as in the fall when it starts to look cooler. For this outfit, you can definitely still rock it in cold weather, you just need to layer a jacket or sweater over it. This outfit is very versatile. 

I know this universal monster print can be found anywhere now BUT I was one of the VERY FIRST BUYERS for this material about fifteen years ago and got it from the first company that used this print so I feel extra special. I loved pairing it with my black crop top decorated with my brand new HOCUS POCUS pendant from my girl, LunaMoon. I’ve known here a long time now and love her!

  For the finishing touches, I wore this outfit in my cute Bettie Page heels and my fabulous unique strawberry flower hair clip. Hope you like this look and can inspire you in some of your looks and like I said before, this outfit can still be worn during cooler weather, just find a fabulous and/or sexy coat to keep your beauty toasty warm.
