Hi, my name is Liz Ohanesian and I’m a writer in Los Angeles. I saw Hot Gothic Stuff and wanted to send you a link to a story I did for the LA Weekly.
Last weekend, I had the chance to cover Gothla US, which is a gothic belly dancing festival/convention sort of thing. The performances and costumes were outstanding. Here’s the story. There’s also a slideshow that is linked at the top of the page.
I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for reading.
There is a hot new gothic designer named Erin Fetherston from San Francisco, California. In the Fall 2009 Mercedes Benz fashion show held February 15, 2009 she used blacks, grays and reds. I did not care for the large oversized florals but the other colors went well with the muted metallic’s.
These gothic outfits look just like they are from a Tim Burton movie. If you are looking for a new look you may be able to get some good ideas on how to mix and match clothing for that gothic rebel in you.

There is a fascinating new book out by Peter Ackroyd called “Poe, A Life Cut Short”. It’s a Biography of Edgar Allen Poe who is known as the praised author that does not get read a lot. Ackroyd says that Poe has been misrepresented and he did not invent gothic literature, but reinvented a tradition of horror and morbid drama. Poe was born in Boston in 1809 I found a number of interesting facts about Poe it is no wonder he was considered one of Americas important writers even before his death in 1849.
Money Saving tip: go to the library and reserve this book when it comes in as it was just published in Jan 2009.
Happy reading! Gemolis
