World Goth Day - Adele Mildred
In your own words, who are you and what do you do?
Hello! I am a multi disciplinary artist and designer. I am currently focusing my attentions on the head (hats and sunglasses) and painting (my personal art and illustrator for hire). I have a tendency to veer towards the weird and dark but I like to keep it feminine. Goth, but stick a flower on it.
How would you describe your style in 3 words?
Witchy 'art teacher’
What do you think being goth means today?
I have NO IDEA about today! I was goth before Marilyn Manson was even a thing. I’m a purist and to me it was about being a sensitive human, and that hurts... so you wear it on your sleeve. (Your lacey billowy sleeve, in the cemetery listening to Bauhaus.)
Who/what are some of your influences and inspirations?
All the strong weird women that have broken the mold;
Ray Suzan Strauss/ the Lava Lady

This is the Day, The The
I never really listen to contemporary music and am really proud my kids can hear a David Bowie song and call it out.
