The Darkling Tag

Hello friends! I was tagged by Natalie (Gothy Two Shoes) for the Darkling Tag! Now I must tag three bloggers, I tag Syl at There's Bats in My Coffee, Julie Ann at Fluffy the Vampire Slayer and Sarrah at Giggles in the Darkness

What is your favourite candle scent? Witch's Brew from Yankee Candle
Do you have a favourite book? The Egyptian Book of the Dead: The Book of Going Forth by Day
Are you a tea or coffee person? I like both, but I'm a *must have coffee in the morning* person
What is your favourite perfume/cologne? I like musky and woodsy scents, right now I'm wearing an essential oil that is cedar and amber
Do you have a celebrity crush? I think Clive Standon (Rollo) on Vikings is pretty cute, but I will always love Robert Smith.
If you could change your name to a stereotypical 90s/2000s gothy name, what would it be? Batty McGothson (LOL!)
What are your top three tips for surviving hot weather while black clad? wearing natural fibers, staying out of the sun and investing in good sunscreen
What song always makes you happy (doesn't have to be a goth band?) Groove Is In The Heart, by Deee-Lite (same answer as Natalie's!)
Are you active in the arts (eg. Play an instrument, paint, write, etc)? I work at a tattoo shop with my husband, but I don't draw or tattoo. I like to DIY and decorate and craft, as well as sew from time to time.
What is your number one non-gothy hobby? Visiting Tiki bars, making Tiki drinks and hanging out in our hut. I don't necessary think it as non-goth as, #gothslovetikitoo Hehehe!

Thought Provokers:

If you could be a supernatural creature, what would it be and why? A Banshee. I scream, you die.

What horror monster-bases super power would you have? I kill you with my voice and I'd be in a sweet 80s post punk band. LOL!!!!

Do you feel confident or comfortable interacting with other Goths or gothy people (online or irl)? Why or why not? Of course, I learned a lot about myself while haunting our local goth clubs and traveling to concerts, etc. I have a harder time interacting with goths online as I'm afraid of people taking things too personally and getting bent out of shape, hence why I try and keep my blog lighthearted.

Is there something you wish there was more of in your subculture? More understanding and patience, people need to stop calling each other elitists. Sigh.....

Care to share an embarrassing story related to your "darkliness"? Ha! There are many embarrassing stories of just my "me-ness". Derek did push me towards William Faith (at a Faith and the Muse concert) and kept saying, "My wife loves you!!!". I wanted to DIE as Derek was taking a photo of the two of us.

How are you at DIY? I think I'm pretty good. I'm creative with taking someone else's junk and turning it into our cool junk. Hahaha!

Confessional (aka True or False):

I love watching cheese romance films. True, but the ones I like I don't necessarily deem cheesy. I like romantic period dramas, like Pride and Prejudice.

I ALWAYS remember to was off my makeup at night. True

I sleep with plushies. True. I sleep with an Ice Bat and an Ugly Ghost (Ugly Dolls)

I wear non-black pyjamas most nights. True. I actually love colorful Halloween or tropical pattern pj's (mostly worn with old black band t-shirts)

I think Andrew Eldrich is overrated. False, but I do think he is ridiculous. ;)

I don't like vampires. False, I like ones that don't sparkle.

I don't like clubs. False, one of the places I feel the most comfortable.

I don't enjoy graveyards. False, another place I feel comfortable and at peace.

Blood makes me queasy. True and False, depends on the situation.

I'd sooner faint than pet a spider. False

I don't like haunted houses. True. I don't like being scared and don't like people jumping out at me or touching me. If it's a REAL haunted house with history, than I'm okay with it.

I've never read Dracula. False, but it's been a long time since I've read it.

I think "Bela Lugosi's Dead" is a long and boring song. True and False. I think it's a great song, I'm just tired of hearing it.
