REFUSE TO BE USUAL: GOTHIC DOLL RINGS, LINK CHOKERS AND CUFFS FROM EBAY.

Goth rings and jewelry with crucifix, black roses from eBay auction seller.Around the turn of the last century, I was obsessed with buying and selling on eBay. ‘Twas the late 90s, and the WWW was still the Wild Wild West. I turned quite a profit (someone paid hundreds for my New Kids On The Block memorabilia) but once eBay added listing fees and tightened regulations, my interest waned…

…and I hardly logged on to the auction site until last month, when my friend sent me a link to an ultra-Goth gutta percha rosary (it was a steal at $15). One click led to another and I soon found myself back on the wagon. My search for “gothic lolita” turned up about 2,000 results, most of which are cheap costumes or mislabeled goods. However, mixed in are some eye-catching Goth/Punk/Visual gems – particularly from the aptly-named retailer, Refuse To Be Usual.

Refuse to be Usual gothic doll lolita rings and accessories from ebay.It’s hard to pare down my favorites – there are hundreds of items listed – but the handmade Gothic Doll jewelry definitely makes the cut. Aren’t these linked rings with dangling crucifixes charming? I bought the black and red one (middle photo) for $20. Seller Nicky responded quickly and lived up to her A+ customer service record.

Kera and Japanese Gothic Lolita jewelry. Tokyo crazy street style.The lace-and-chain cuffs look like they hopped straight out of Kera Magazine. Each piece has two size adjustments and is designed for comfort.

Punk and Goth Lolita chain chokers and lace bracelets from Refuse to be Usual.The cherub wings are made from real white feathers – and guaranteed to attract attention. You can detach the link between the collar and cuff.

Victorian jabot and lace Goth ties, aristocrat costume.Oh goodness! I swoon at the sight of lace jabots and ruffled ties. Perhaps I’ll sew one for myself…

Victorian jabot and lace Goth ties, aristocrat costume.And how crazy cute are these Hysteric Japan puppet doll shoulder bags? The torso zips up, while the rabbit’s head and limbs are stuffed.

Check out more Harajuku style from Refuse To Be Usual’s eBay store – but don’t blame me if you lose a few hours and your last paycheck!

    Her ebay store is amazing! I bought some hair extensions and some extra high converse style shoes. Everything on that site looks straight out of Kera Maniax! I defiantly recommend this seller to anyone looking to vamp up their wardrobe with something cool.

    Woah! This is some awesome stuff! You know, I'd been kinda leery about the whole “tons of rings and chains goth” jewelry, but this report is making me rethink them. I didn't know they were adjustable and designed for comfort! Coolness. :D

    And I *lurv* the ultra-creative jabots and ties, too. Now I only need more blouses to wear them with!

    Thanks for the awesome report, Carmina! ^^

    It's been a while I know this shop but I never order something. They are so many clothes, cuff and jewels I found lovely but I really don't like shipping on ebay.
    What a shame Refused To be Usual haven't a normal shop somewhere else.
