GothicChicago Calendars – Events – Photos

Born out of frustration with being seated in the back of a restaurant because we looked too “Goth” (aka “weird”) – we decided to share Goth-friendly locations and events in Chicago and eventually worldwide online.  The scene has grown – Goth is in the malls, Cosplay is all the rage and the world is a little smaller (and more wonderful) due to social media.  To celebrate 20 years of spooky stuff for spooky people, this 46 page, full colour book shares highlights from 1996-2016.

Gothic and Amazing started out as someone’s dream to show the world that Goth doesn’t have to be just dark and depressing. Like a black rose is dark but yet  beautiful so why not find beauty in the dark and be Gothic and Amazing. And with that, one day a Facebook  page was born trying to show the beautiful part of Goth. The goal was to support everyone that fit that description  from  models to photographers, make-up artists, stylists, music bands, shop owners and all kinds of Goth form of art.

The idea was also to show that supporting each other, people could grow along with their pages. So from one person’s dream, a team of people with the same beliefs was born, the G&A team. Here we are now making our mark and showing how we all see the goth-subculture.

Tea Review: Adagio Fandom Teas – Gothic Charm School’ The Lady of the Manners



From the depths of the Gothic Charm School library, a tea that combines three of the Lady of the Manners’ favorite things: chocolate, roses, and black tea, with a smidge of cream tea to nicely round it out.

Couldn’t resist some new tea for my birthday, so I decided to try the Adagio Fandom tea sample tins.  One, for the fun of trying other people’s blends and two, for the cute reusable tins.  The art on this tin is from the Gothic Charm School site and book.

The aroma in the tin and in the cup with a splash of milk is delightful.  Creamy, not bitter with the roses coming out strong.  Tasted delicious with a biscuit.  At first taste, this is a keeper.  BONUS: this tea contains a high level of caffeine!

Support our spooky Aunt Jilli and try her signature blend.  This purchase also supports ChariTEA: Honeybee Conservancy
