Skulls and Hearts--Gothic Halloween

Updated on September 18, 2021

Halloween is just a bit of modern fun, imported from USA, and that's how I see it when I write my ghostly pages with horror photos & poems

Hearts and Skulls Are Heavy With Symbolism

Who would ever have believed that so-called sophisticated people would be wearing skulls and hearts, either together or separately, emblazoned on their T-shirts, back-packs, leggings, and water-bottles,or adorning their backs, arms, chests and nether regions?

Well, thinking about it, maybe it's not for the sophisticated, more for the fun-loving rebels, and downbeat posers. Would I, personally, wear them? I'm not sure--I am, after all, the wrong side of 70, even if somewhat unconventional.


But I'll Tell You a Little Story:

I was shopping with my daughter recently, and spotted a black T-shirt with a big skull design mapped out in silver studs.

I mentioned to her that I had seen a top I quite liked, and my daughter said she had also seen one that she thought would look good on me. Well, blow me down if she hadn't chosen the same one that I chose! Is that telepathy or some other supernatural force?

I hovered over whether to give in to my impulse and buy it, urged on by her, but in the end, discretion won......after all, being a retired professional person, a lawyer, I do have an image to keep up for my fans, although many of them have dropped by the wayside these days, or perhaps I should say "passed over", if you get my meaning.

Below are some T-Shirts like the one I have been describing:

How About a Tie with Burning Skulls?

Skull products have their own following - enjoyed by rebels and Goths who think the whole Halloween idea is silly, but they'd still like to send a cool Halloween Invitation or gift

      The day of the dead is coming up soon, there will be lots of people looking for skulls then! And maybe you could wear that coveted T shirt on that day and not stand out too much?
