Gothic Charm School



Gothic Charm School is an invention of Jillian Venters also known as the Lady Of Manners.  Since 1998 she's been writing " an essential guide for goths and those who love them " .

"the world of Gothic Charm School, where the Lady of the Manners spends a not-inconsiderable amount of time trying to gently persuade others in her chosen subculture that being a Goth and being polite is much, much more subversive than just wearing black t-shirts with ‘”edgy” sayings on them.
There’s an added benefit to being a Goth and having good manners; it’s actually more shocking to some people than the “Booooo! I’m so spooky and scary!” freakshow antics they expect from Goths. " ( taken from the official site http://www.gothiccharmschool.com/)


She writes articles both for young goths and for parents of goths or elder goths. Here are some example of the tematics she wrote about:

For the younger Goths:

Help, my parents won’t let me be a Goth!

Talking to parents about their disapproval of your gothy ways.

Goths and school.

On dealing with school dress codes.




For the parents of younger Goths, and for gothy parents:

 
Raising a Goth.

Being a gothy parent.

Of parents worrying about “Drama”.




For the ElderGoths:

Too old to be a Goth? and Too old to be a Goth, revisited.

Returning to your gothy style after a hiatus.

Aging gracefully.





Some fashion advice:

A quick primer on achieving a gothy look.

Of dressing to flatter one’s figure, and of Elegant Gothic Lolita, Deathrock, and Victorian fashion.

Some fashion advice specifically for the gentlemen.



Recently a book based on her site has been released and got quite a big success (the pic at the beginning of the article is the book cover!!). You can find info about it in the site. I also suggest to take a look at the Lady Of Manners videos like this one:


You can find others always in http://www.gothiccharmschool.com/ , It's always updated ^_^
