June Show at La Luz De Jesus Art Gallery by Amelia G on Blue Blood

June Show at La Luz De Jesus Art Gallery

After a surreal day of attending first the Bay Pay Forum on the future of banking and digital currencies, following by a private Wells Fargo event at the Beverly Wilshire, I felt like I could finally exhale and relax when Forrest Black and I arrived at the gallery opening for the art showing at…( Read more )

Free Nude Pumpkin Carving Halloween Gallery (PICS)

Interestingly, when Forrest Black and I photographed her, this particular Morticia style classic goth model is from the UK and she had never carved a jack o’lantern before, so we deflowered her in the pumpkin carving department. Full hot spooky shoot on and in the Blue Blood VIP for Halloween. More free nude gothic pics in the teaser gallery 🙂

Luck of the Gothic Shamrock Babe (SFW PICS)

Much as I am entertained by green beer and getting tipsy in the street, I thought I would pass along these fun factoids to know and share:

(1) The holiday as really celebrated today started in the Americas.

(2) Use of the shamrock was added nearly a thousand years after the death of the saint, as a co-option of Pagan ritual.

(3) Leprechauns became associated with the holiday largely due to the release of a 1950’s Disney movie about them.

(4) Pubs in Ireland were required to be closed on the religious holiday until the 1970’s.

(5) The original color associated with the holiday was blue.

Full series of the lovely Ms. Poisoness on Gothic Sluts and the Blue Blood VIP. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

California Deathrock Book Kickstarter

The really big news is that a book of Forrest Black and Amelia G’s deathrock portraiture is going to be published. There are four days left in the Kickstarter pledge period and the project has already succeeded and will definitely be funded. Pledge now and Amazon won’t charge for the California Deathrock book until the pledge period is complete.

Forrest and Amelia will also thank you in print in the book, if you pledge now. Please note that, once the book is published, it should be available via Amazon and Barnes & Noble, but the retail price is expected to be significantly higher than the Kickstarter price. Cool people who Forrest and Amelia have photographed will probably be able to get the book for wholesale pricing later, but that will be around the Kickstarter amount and without the mention in the book dedication. And it would be ever so helpful and awesome if you could get those pledges in now to make sure the book is a hardcover and has the best possible art book paper and most possible pages.

Behind the Scenes Photoshoot Video

You can see some behind-the-scenes footage of what a nightlife portraiture shoot with Amelia G and Forrest Black looks like. Panel of Experts is continuing its series of features with a Panel of Experts interviewed on various horror and gothic-related topics. Blue Blood notables on the Panel include Amelia G, John Shirley, Will Judy, Forrest Black, Cecilia Tan, Thomas S. Roche, Ed Mironiuk, Eric Swartz, and Chad Savage.

New Gothic Fashion Site has launched a sister site for dark fashion.

boom studios party giveaways

Nineteen Eight hour countdown to the party tonight! </p>

A few more kickass things:

The event is 18+ (not 21+), which means you only have to be eighteen-years-old to attend. One of the reasons for holding the party at this venue is that they are extra-cool about this.

Blue Blood’s Forrest Black and Amelia G will be doing a digital gallery show. The artwork projected on the walls will be portraiture of many denizens of the dark and fabulous, some of whom will be in attendance.

BOOM! Studios has given us a ton of great books giveaways. There is stuff from a number of their darker lines, including the 28 Days Later series, the Cthulu Tales series, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, and . . . [drum roll please!] issue #1 of the new Clive Barker Hellraiser comic. That’s right! Clive Barker is doing a new Hellraiser story in comic book form. There are multiple cover designs, one with art by Clive Barker, one with work by Tim Bradstreet, and one by Nick Percival. The Hellraiser comic books are not available in stores until Wednesday, but a couple dozen lucky VIPs are going to get a copy of issue number one at the party. Clive Barker + Hellraiser + issue #1 = a very cool collectible . . .

Filed under Events,Headline,Horror</span> | PartyYou have no doubt noticed the spiffy new design on, so come on out this Saturday, March 19, and help us celebrate. In’s fifteen years, this is probably the sixth or seventh site design. Mixing things up is good. Here at, we pride ourselves on our combination of horrific literary tradition and bad attitude, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like to come out at night sometimes!

The new site design launch party is hosted by Tricia LaBelle and Bar Sinister at Boardners. Boardners is at 1652 Cherokee Ave, just off Hollywood Boulevard in the heart of Hollywood. Boardners is a seventy-year-old historic Hollywood venue. It is rumored to be the last stop for Elizabeth Short, where she drank before her ghoulish murder gave her immortality as the Black Dahlia. At one time, Boardners appeared to be a beauty parlor, but this was really just a front for its true calling as a gambling speakeasy. What a perfect place to celebrate the dark!

After the event, will be publishing photos from the party red carpet. Red carpet arrivals are from 10pm to 11pm. contributors, including fiction writers, artists, and members of the panel of experts, should contact us for guest list. Community members with more than 1,000 posts (who have not been Eyeball SPORKED!) qualify for VIP as well. Blue Blood’s Amelia G and Forrest Black will also be covering the party for magazines and online, with a portrait photo location towards the back door of the nightclub. There will also be performances from two gothic bands on stage, The Tragic Tantrum and Mather Louth And Radio Noir, with DJ John C & DJ Tommy spinning in between and after.
