World Goth Day - Marley / TheGlamGoth
In your own words, who are you and what do you do?
I am Marley, Founder and CEO of Glam Goth Beauty. I run an online cosmetics & merch store dedicated to all things dark, dangerous, and glamorous! I'm also a licensed cosmetologist and permanent makeup artist, when I'm not running my store I'm providing beauty services to people.
How would you describe your style in 3 words?
Elegant, Minimal, Rockstar
What do you think being goth means today?
I think being Goth truly means that you are a dark and poetic soul. Finding beauty and understanding the doom and gloom of things. Living in your own underworld fantasy and not caring about what the trend of the month is.
Who/what are some of your influences and inspirations?
I am deeply inspired by nature, victorian era architecture, and the human experience. How we feel and who we are is really all we know and I think it's an exceptional gift to be able to create from that in a way that relates to people. Some of my influences are classic horror movies, old Hollywood beauty queens, and music from all genres. And as cliche as it is I'm obsessed with diamonds, roses and all things black.

What have you been listening to recently?
I've been listening to a lot of emo and metalcore music that I used to listen to in highschool like Pierce the Veil and A Skylit Drive. Then I'll find myself listening to old rock n roll classics like Pink Floyd and Alice Cooper. Lots of Lana Del Rey when I'm in a mood. Lots of Nicki Minaj when I'm feeling myself, and a whole lot of Type O Negative after 11pm LOL! Oh, and the new Weeknd album is AMAZING!
