Mr. and Ms. Spooky Houston 2011

From the Houston Press…

The crowd at Underworld’s 12th annual Gothic Beauty Pageant on Saturday was a sea of powder-white faces, black lace, and combat boots. . . . At midnight Emcees Scarlett St. Vitus (Ms. Spooky ’06) and Lady Spleen (Ms. Spooky ’07) led contestants clothed in corsets, top hats, gas masks, electrical tape–even antique birdcages fashioned as head and hand wear–across the stage before a distinguished panel of judges . . . .

All in hopes of  being crowned Houston’s new king or queen of Goth.  It looks like Houston’s Goth scene is undead and kicking.  The slide show in the article is great.  Here is a link to a photo of Siouxsie’s favorite contestant.

  1. Being a goth is a much more creative outlet now than it was way back in my day.

    I am convinced that the Interwebs and blogs encourage and inspire people.

    I wonder (in relation to contestant 36, your favourite) what shoes are being worn to complement the exquisitely detonated cheekbones?

  2. That is an issue I need to do more research into, appreciate the post.
