Hello again darklings; apologies for my total lack of posting yesterday, I was extremely Not Well.
I was reminded of my promise to post about the small ways you can add a bit of spookiness to your life when the new Attitude Clothing catalogue popped into my postbox, featuring an all-in-one skeleton fleece sleep suit and a pair of fake-blood-splattered 'zombie killing' PJs.

Those of you who live in the USA and have a Hot Topic in your vicinity may have had it slightly easier - from what I've seen online, Emily the Strange's nightwear range is quite fetching, although as far as I am aware it's only for the ladies. At least with all-in-one skelly suits appearing on the market, the gentlemen are getting a bit of a look-in as well.
Even mainstream stores have been known to get in on the act - my hot pink PJs with black bats are from none other than Topshop. And there's nothing wrong with picking up a plain black set (perhaps in satin?) or a nice black nightie, is there?
Ladies, if you're feeling a little, erm, saucy, Anne Summers do occasionally produce nightwear that might appeal, such as their 'Bondage Babe' printed cami sets (I somehow found myself in possession of the top half of such a set and am prone to wearing it as a T-shirt). Red, black, satin and lace obviously abound at Anne Summers and other such *adult* shops, so if you want something sexier, it could be worth a look.
Of course, not everybody wants a lace-trimmed scarlet nightie, or even a set of bat print PJs. Some may prefer a reproduction Victorian nightdress, and I'm sure there are plenty of you who just crash in an oversized band tee. You can also find vintage-inspired sleepwear at Fairy Goth Mother (just don't look at those prices...).
What about slippers? Well, you can get novelty slippers anywhere, with kitties, claws, skulls, or cameos on (I have owned all of the above) or just black'n'fluffy! Even Emily the Strange does slippers for the darkly inclined, or get your very own Jack Skellies at Attitude Clothing.
In short, you can now proudly display your Gothy tendencies 24/7 with very little difficulty... you lucky thing, you.
