This morning, I discovered, to my delight, that today is World Goth Day!
It’s possible that “delight” isn’t the appropriate response to something goth-y, but there it is. I love me some goths, especially because they decided their favorite author last year was Neil Gaiman. They aren’t wrong.
While searching for something appropriate to put on my Facebook page to notify my “friends” about this special occasion, I found a really fun picture of Marilyn Manson in Mickey Mouse gear. I stumbled across the Internet, trying to find the source for it.
The photo is by Paco Peregrin, a Spanish fashion photographer. Oh yes: Mr. Peregrin’s work is delicious.
His work is where I’d like mine to be: infused with whimsy, color and (hopefully someday) sophistication. The goth throwback sensibility with so much more.
