Gothic Charm School An essential, fully illustrated guidebook to day-to-day Goth living

There's more to being a Goth than throwing on some black velvet, dyeing your hair, and calling it a day (or a night). How do you dress with morbid flair when going to a job interview? Is there such a thing as growing too old to be a Goth? How do you explain to your grandma that it's not just a phase?

Jillian Venters, a.k.a. "the Lady of the Manners," knows how to be strange and unusual without sacrificing politeness and etiquette. In Gothic Charm School, she offers the quintessential guide to dark decorum for all those who have ever searched for beauty in dark, unexpected places, embraced their individuality, and reveled in decadence . . . and for families and friends who just don't understand.

    I learned so much about the scene and how being goth differs from person to person. The book pretty much touched on everything from fashion to music to the influences that goth has on the mainstream media. It made me want to actually pursue life in this scene because there were so many things in the culture that I love but had not connected it to being related to goth. The author offers a fresh approach to topics that probably wouldn't be talked about with a non goth. This book could change the way many non goths feel about the goth community. This was a joy to read because it offered the perspective of a person in the scene who's been there awhile and one who takes a different approach from what people think a typical goth would say/be. Very well written :)
  • I love it!!!!

    When they say there is more to goth then just throwing on a black outfit and makup they can't be more right. I love this book this is great for goths , people wanting to become goth or people that just want to understand goths better.
