Everything moved and i wasn't drunk: Cataclysm in Chile

hi, i know the next  thing i'll speak is nothing to do with the thematic of the
blog, but i think is important to me and i wanna share my experience with you.... is about the Earthquake occurred in my country (before mentioned as "ass of the world") Chile... a seismic country, so i'm (we're) accustumed to this kind atmospheric phenomenon.
I'm from the capital and in the dawn of saturday at 3:30 a.m pretty much... all began as an insignificant seism that became increasingly stronger, very stronger.. oh damn it an earthquake! ...the intensity reached was of 8.8 magnitude Richter scale.
fortunately all my loved ones are ok, only with homemade desorders....nothing serious uff!

some buildings fell down, as well as houses, walls, bridges; broken glasses from windows, cracked roads and broken roads.

with all the energy liberated, the autorities waited and anounced tsunamis for Hawai, Japan, Russia and places arround,... and in the late ocurred some tsunamis in the Bio-Bio region (at south), where was the epicenter of earthquake... this zone have been the more affected.

in the most affected places the comunication and basic services are broke up, no electricity, no water, no phone, only comunication by cellphone in the best of the cases.

between the chaos, someones dominated by the hysteria sacked supermarkets and was inmates fled in some prisions, but the police have captured to the most.

at the moment 700 dead aprox.........

fortunately this happened on dawn....i had the privilege of live in a safe apartament, i love my home!!!... but in the corner of my home exist a beautiful church of medieval-barroque-gothic architecture "Basilica Del Salvador" suffered the collapse of a part of their wall...and we're expectant with what will happen with these.


well, after the earthquake, came and come the replicas (seisms), this is common, one are more stronger than others but no with the earthquake magnitude , at the moment more than 100 (according to news), now the concern for someones is the collapse of  some buildings on danger to fall, and the most important...the help to injured people who lost their houses, their belongings and in the worst of the cases their loved ones...

greetings and kisses, i'm ok  :) (who cares xD)

To our anonymous commenter

I noticed that an anonimous reader wrote some insults at us in some comments in "gothic best brand" article. Now..GET A LIFE!! I know you are surely someone from Stardoll probably a 10 year old or something because Gothic Divine Magazine isn't really known outside of SD. And no. We are not wh...s! not "biggies" (what the f**k does it mean anyway??!! xD) ! Also..if you don't like us and our culture PLEASE DON'T EVEN READ OUR MAGAZINE!! You are pathetic!!

I will use this article also to remind everybody NOT TO USE BAD WORDS IN COMMENTS ..UNLESS AUTHORIZED BE ME!! :P

Have a nice day..

Alice in Wonderland- Fun Facts!!

uuuuuuuuh I forgot to tell you in the other article about some fun facts regarding Alice In Wonderland!!

The First is that our beloved Natalie Shau (the illustrator I told you about in a past article) has made a wonderful picture about AIW that has also finished to be published as the cover of AIW book in different countries!! Here's the cover of the book:





The second fun fact is that Alice really existed. She was a 10 year old girl called Alice Pleasence Liddel that insisted a lot to make Carroll tell her and her 2 sisters the story that then became AIW during a trip on a boat in a golden afternoon (too bad someone found out that the 4th of july 1865 was a rainy day! xD) Also did you know that Alice wasn't blonde with blue eyes?? She was black haired with a fringe! Carroll chose to turn Alice blonde because in the years he lived in being blonde with curly wavy hair was the most loved type of child and women!


This is another Shau's AIW inspired pic! :)

Third thing is that in the Original Soundtrack of the movie the song " A very good advice" is sung by Robert Smith from The Cure :) . Too bad the main song has been given to Avril Lavigne and to others un-talented people. -_-"

Alice In Wonderland

I think that almost everybody in this world is waiting for the new Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland movie to come out. I've been waiting almost a year for this!! xD

It will start to be in cinemas on the 2nd March in many countries..Italy for sure infact I'm going to see it that day xd but the official start date is 5th March.

Alice in Wonderland is a 1865 novel by Lewis Carroll (real name Charles Lutwidge Dodgson),  an English authour that was also a photographer and mathematician. His most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass, as well as the poems "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky", all examples of the genre of literary nonsense. He is noted for his facility at word play, logic, and fantasy.

It tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar and anthropomorphic creatures. The tale is filled with allusions to Carroll's friends. The tale plays with logic in ways that have given the story lasting popularity with adults as well as children. It is considered to be one of the most characteristic examples of the "literary nonsense" genre, and its narrative course and structure have been enormously influential, especially in the fantasy genre.

Many film have been made from this book since 1903!!  But the most famous is the Disney animated movie of 1951 (!!!) that all of us surely has seen. :)

However Tim Burton's movie is different because it tells of 19-year-old Alice that returns to the magical world from her childhood adventure, where she reunites with her old friends and learns of her true destiny: to end the Red Queen's reign of terror.



Alice character is played by Mia Wasikowska ,Johnny Depp plays the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter (always present in Burton's movies...she's his wife after all xD) plays the Red Queen and Anne Hathaway the White Queen. Micheal Sheen is the White Rabbit and Alan Rickman the blue Caterpillar.

The movie can be seen in 3D too!!

I'm really looking forward to see it..really..I can't wait..and you??

Retro Hairstyles

Welcome back to GothicDivine Magazine ! I noticed that most of Goths love the pin-up look , especially the hair-dos. They mainly take inspiration from pin-up first lady Bettie Page and her disciple Dita Von Teese. As I'm trying to make "victory rolls" on my head , I went looking for Tutorial videos on YouTube and also ended up in this site about all retro hairstyle from the 20s to the 90s :). The pin-up looks are of course in the 40s/50s section. Check it out at  http://www.retrohairstyles.com/  and
http://retro-hairstyle.com/40s-hairstyles


Pin-up look is awesome with all kinds of face shapes and hair color ;)

For the videos on how to make pin-up hair-dos I think these are the best ! even the music is right :)
