     If you dust-off June in The Arcade Of Arts & Arcana’s Archives (head to the sidebar on the homepage) you’ll find Pre-Raphaelite strumpets, naughty vintage movies some ridiculous facts about the Victorian Era and a popular post on that favourite guilty pleasure – Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula (click the link to read the original post).

     Perhaps it was Eiko Ishioka’s demonic raw-muscle armour that made the post so popular.  You can see it again here along with more of Ishioka’s Oscar-winning costumes for Gary Oldman…

     The episodic structure and super simple YA-style prose mire a book worth reading for its genius premise: pensioners battling the supernatural in UK Goth Capital, Whitby.

     Magrs inventively homages all the genre classics with warmth and wit whilst Brenda and Effie disguise cracks in an episodic narrative with the sheer force of their personalities.  Two great roles for Dames Judi Dench and Helen Mirren perhaps 🙂

     A silly, frothy yarn perfect for Sunday tea time telly.

Amazing Tim Burtonesque Pokémon. A perfect start for a Gothic October!

 

Banana Scoop

Crazy awesome artist Hatboy, had combined something truly awesome.  Tim Burton gothic style art and Pokemon.  Luckily, this guy is from my generation and he seems to be using the first 150 as his content material.  As you can see from above, he takes a popular Pokemon type and redraws them with Tim Burton trademark creepy features and distinct art style…I can’t seem to find another word for it besides gothic and I keep wanting to use Corpse Bridey/Nightmare Before Christmasy.  You can check out the entire gallery through his link where he does way more than some of the ones I featured here.  Go on below to check out the rest of my favorites.
