my friend dani made a doll of 'yours truly'  - Lady Michaela

Give your gothic friends their gifts in coffin shaped boxes.    - Lady Michaela

This idea can only be done if you own your own property (LOL.) Every Halloween,

 I buy the best faux tombstones I can find, for the purpose of adding to my year-round backyard cemetery. ~ Lady Michaela




Danisa:  This is just something I thought of when I looked at the cake.

For people who don't have a heart-shaped cake pan, they can use a square pan and a circular pan and bake two cakes,

and cut the circle cake in half. It makes a great heart.


This is the Jack Skeleton birthday cake my friends made me for my 16th birthday.

 It's a chocolate-coated vanilla cake with some powdered sugar on top (Jack's face drawn with fingers :P)   --from Debbie

When someone special to you likes something you don't, give the gift of both worlds.  My husband likes Disney world,

so I bought a Minnie Mouse doll & made her gothic, then gave him the doll for Valentine's Day.  - Lady Michaela

not really being a big fan of betty boop (above),

I bought her anyway & altered her...I don't think Betty ever looked better.  - Lady Michaela

display all your goth treasures in one area of your home, this is my breakfast nook.   - Lady Michaela


 Family Bat Tree idea from Beth of Maryland

with a complete direction guide on how to make the bats if you click the tree!


* Jennifer from: The Fabrics Network, Inc.   says: Wash black items with Ivory Snow liquid for less fading!!  Wash in cold water also.  

* The best black dye is the industrial dye available from www.dharmatrading.com.

Super easy to use & quite effective. All you do is put the packet of dye into the washer in a hot load & let it run about 20 min. 

 (I re-run the wash cycle five times) Search for industrial dyes at dharma.   - Lady Michaela

use this dye:  http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/eng/1765-AA.shtml?lnav=dyes.html

I made dolls of Frankenstein and his bride for my boyfriend and I. 

  I hope I made Boris Karloff and Elsa Lanchester proud.   -Hannah
