It is probably quite lazy of me to do a spotlight post about one of my favourite YouTubers, but I assure you it won't be the only time I will do this. I'm kind of a YouTube addict. Plus I think it's kind of a nice way to highlight people in the subculture who I think are doing awesome things. I don't feel you should have to be a model, artist or musician to get recognition within a community-based scene like Goth - perhaps as a blogger I am a tad biased, though...
Anyhoo. Today I'm turning the spotlight on Sebastian Columbine, aka YouTube's SebastianTheGirl. Sebastian is a young American Goth who happens to make great videos - the topic on which she most often holds forth is, of course, our dear subculture. Sometimes funny, sometimes thought-provoking, always honest, you may agree or disagree with some of Sebastian's viewpoints but she always has something interesting to offer.

Of course, the best part of watching someone on YouTube is ogling their outfits, hair and make-up, and I have to admit that I DO love Sebastian's style.
I also highly recommend that you check out her Tumblog The Darkest Show On Earth, which is where I source quite a number of the images I use on this blog.
[A small note: some of Sebastian's thoughts and opinions have provoked a little controversy, which has resulted in her receiving some unpleasant messages and comments. I'm sure that most of us are capable of considering the viewpoints of others and deciding whether to accept or reject them without needing to be rude and unkind about it; this is a big subculture, not everyone within it is going to see eye to eye, and that's perfectly OK and not a good reason to send someone hatemail.]
OK, I'm done enthusing about random people on the internets (for now, anyways). Hope you enjoy. :-)
