WIN IRON FIST ZOMBIE GLOW-IN-THE-DARK SHOES! ALTERNATIVE GOTH PUNK PLATFORM BOOTS & MONSTER STILETTOS.
Brains… brains! One of my favorite alternative shoe companies, Iron Fist, rocked my world by sending me these Zombie Stomper Platforms. And guess what… two lucky readers will win a pair of the new, limited edition Moonshine Zombie glow-in-the-dark shoes! Keep reading to learn how to enter the contest (winners are based on MERIT this time).
In addition to the googly-eyed shoes, Iron Fist sent me these Ladie’s Bleeder Platforms with a blood red heel. Wicked, and laced with Gothic detail — just look inside the shoe. No wonder Iron Fist is a coveted brand in Japan (remember the photos from the Nude and Rude store?)
Heavy Red, LA-based designer of Gothic clothing for men and women, sent me a few elegant items, including this Cruel Passions waist cincher. The corset is steel-boned yet light, with lacing up the back and faux leather buckle enclosures over the front. Beautifully crafted, amazingly fitted — this pirate says Arrr!
Red and silver Victorian choker necklace: gifted from Gloomth
Lace, fitted strapless dress: from a Seattle vintage store
Elegant Gothic jacket: Metamorphose temps de fille, from Closet Child
Clip-on devil horns: Claires in Tokyo
A Gothic graveyard photoshoot sounded like a good idea… until the caretaker drove by with a scowl on his face. I had to run!
Makeup: Marlliss fake eyelashes over the top lids (they have a sparkly blue base). Black eye pencil and gold Sugarpill eyeshadow. MAC dark purple Cyber lipstick with lip gloss over the center.
Check out Heavy Red’s web store, which has a selection of corsets, waist cinchers and other Gothic Victorian clothing to die for.
Iron Fist and La Carmina are giving away TWO pairs of the new, limited edition Zombie shoes in your shoe size (US 5 to 11)! The contest is open worldwide — and for the first time in this blog’s history, the winners shall be picked based on MERIT.
HOW TO WIN THE IRON FIST ZOMBIE SHOES GIVEAWAY

† TO ENTER: Please leave a comment in this post, telling us about a cutting-edge / underground event or place you’ve encountered. It could be a club, gallery, shop, restaurant… be creative! For example, reader “Immortal Angel” recently told me about a skull-themed cafe in Lithuania. And “Visitor in a silk hat” suggested several Goth nights in Las Vegas.
† We’ll count a maximum of (5) “coolhunting” suggestions per person, meaning you can enter up to five times.
† WINNERS will be picked by La Carmina and First Mate Naomi. We’ll read through your entries and decide which two pirates are worthy of these Zombie platforms.
