Skulls and Hearts - Gothic Halloween

A fun page with Gothic #Halloween, #skulls and hearts, a Poll, posters,T-shirts and other products

Gothic Skulls and Hearts - Very Trendy!

I used to have a little white skeleton dangling from a key-ring when I was a teenager, in the 1950s. I loved that skeleton, and even had a name for him - Skelly. I took him everywhere.

Of course, although I didn't know it at the time, that was the precursor of Gothic style as we know it today.
People thought I was ghoulish or just plain weird, a little girl carrying round horrid things like that. Not that I cared - I always liked to be different, and still do. I would be a bit sad if people thought of me as ordinary, or normal - not that I make a point nowadays of standing out in a crowd, but I don't necessarily conform to what other people think I should be, and prefer to choose what I think I should be.

I'd like to show you a great selection of Gothic style here - including Jewelry, Cards, and Artwork

Skulls are trendy this season. When they are connected with romantic hearts you have weird somewhat tongue-in-cheek symbolism, of the loving you to death or loving for eternity genre

What's this all about? Gothic things, of course!

You might want to buy these items for Valentine's Day or Halloween , but they can be used all-year-round


I'm going to show you a few Gothic posters, some jewelry,  and cards  all featuring skulls and/or hearts. There are also lots of Ghoulish pictures to keep your attention

What do you think of the Gothic Hearts and Skulls fashion trend? - Does it show disrespect for the dead? Is it an abuse of symbolism?

  

Lets see what you all thinkAfter all, we're all gonna die sometime!
