Happy World Goth Day!

Happy World Goth Day! Today is World Goth Day and to celebrate I dressed as one of my all-time favorite Gothic icons, Elvira! Elvira is an awesome feminist icon, too. I promise to do a proper cosplay makeup tutorial and look for her some day. However, today is not that day. I’ve been studying hard for my Google AdWords Certification. I took time out of my day to pick Amaya up from the vet’s office, as she was just spayed, and then had to come back home to study more. When I looked at the clock and realized it was after 6pm, I knew I needed to hurry and put a look together for World Goth Day.

I did my makeup in about 10 minutes, super fast for me as I typically like to take an hour. I was trying to rush outside before it started pouring, but didn’t make it, so took these photos indoors.

About Elvira Mistress of the Dark

Cassandra Peterson, better known as Elvira Mistress of the Dark, is such a fun gothic icon. She’s not afraid to speak her mind, wear hot pink eyeshadow with red lipstick, and strut her stuff. She inherits her poodle Algonquin from her great-aunt Morgana, along with a mansion, and recipe book. She dubs Algonquin Gonk and gives him a punk makeover, which I love. If you’ve never seen it, you should watch Elvira Mistress of the Dark. It’s a lot of fun.

What I’m Wearing

Kreepsville 666 Elvira Comic Icons Purple Skater Dress (size small)
Kreepsville 666 Elvira Purple Dagger Belt (size small)
Bat Necklace (discontinued, similar style)
Kreepsville 666 Gonk Purse
Strange Cvlt Lydia Bat Flats (size 8)

I adore this cute purple Elvira dress from Kreepsville 666 and there was no way I could pass up a punk rock poodle purse. Because I’m not a fan of spiders, I don’t own any black spider necklaces, which you typically see worn with this dress. I chose one of my big bag necklaces and then tied that in with my black on black bat flats from Strange Cvlt. I’ve had the Elvira belt for a long time, as it looks good with any long black dress I own.

How are you celebrating World Goth Day?


  1. Its hard to believe how long Elvira has been around. I remember watching her YEARS ago. Hope you had great Goth Day. Cute outfits

  2. Super looks, both face and attire. Made me think of Lunatick……Didn’t i read about Lunatick Elvira and Vampira here? I love L’s cool palettes. Vampira is just my speed.

  3. You look super goth-a-licious! I remember watching when Elvira used to host the weekend horror movies on Channel 9 (I think – I was a little girl so my channel memory may be off) in Los Angeles. I thought she was marvelous and still do!

  4. I love the pink eyeshadow! I also love peach tones. Could you recommend a palette with lots of peach colors?

  5. Elvira is iconic! When I was a kid, my uncle painted her on a VW bug and she loved it!

  6. I didn’t know Goth Day was a thing! But I love the aesthetic of goth fashion, you also wear it so well!

  7. I didn’t even know this day was a thing! I need to go see what days are coming up!

  8. I didn’t realize it was World Goth Day, so sad I missed out! I love that you went with colours sine being goth isn’t all about wearing black!

  9. You look great! I didn’t realize Elvira had a show with an actual plot! I thought she was a hostess for late night horror shows. A little before my time!

  10. Love your loafers. So adorable. Makeup and clothes are stylish and fun.

  11. I love seeing what you will think of next. The purple everything is stunning look with the camera. Great job!

  12. What a shame that you couldn’t be out sharing your amazing look with the world. We have an Elvira pinball machine and I think it’s the best one we own.
