Bloggers: Join Me for Red and Black Week

Sneak Preview!

June 5-10, 2011

I’ve been enjoying participating in various fashion blogger events, such as Color Brigade and Rule-Breaking Monday. There seems to be a shortage of Goth-related blogging events, so I thought I would start one up! My theme is Red & Black Week, since this is a pretty classic Gothic color combination.

To participate in Red and Black Week:

Each day (June 5-10), I will post my Red & Black outfit as well as a sign-up form. Add the icon to your Red & Black post for that day (it can be something you posted previously, as long as you go back and add the icon to the post). Then, come back to my blog and add a link to your post (direct link to your Red & Black post, not your blog’s home page) using the Mister Linky sign-up form on my post.

Your posts don’t have to be about fashion, but they do have to be “dark” and they must incorporate a red and black theme. Non-Goth blogs are welcome to participate, as long as the posts evoke an appropriately dark and/or classy aesthetic (red evening gown with black accessories would be awesome, for example, but a red and black football uniform would be not so much).

You don’t have to participate every day of the event; feel free to just post once, twice or whatever you like!

Sneak Preview!

Posts that are linked up without including the icon will be removed, because it’s my blog and I said so. 🙂

Please share this invitation with any bloggers you know who might be interested!

Questions? E-mail me using the Contact Me page.

  1. Count me in! um, just as soon as I leave work, because I'm sure I should not be reading Sophistique Noir whilst at the office…

  2. Oo la la! Sounds exciting! I want to participate too! 😀

  3. Me, too! :)This will be great!But… wait! I don't own many red things… Mr. K., let's go SHOPPING! 😉

  4. UltimateGothGuide; yay! And yes, you should be reading Sophistique Noir at the office. 😉 Just kidding, of course!!Kiwi, cool! I'm so glad!Sal, that's why I wanted to give plenty of notice. 🙂 Oh, and so you guys can mention the event on your blogs as well and spread the word. ;-D

  5. I'm in! I've been longing to make a Gothic Lolita look ^_^

  6. I'm SO in. I love red x black! Is it fate that I'm currently making a lolita jumperskirt in those colors…? o.O

  7. Sounds amazing! I love red and black together, and by that time I should be back home with all of my surfeit of red and black clothes, so count me in. Thanks for providing an opportunity to connect with other Goth blogs-as a new blogger, I was working up my courage to comment and connect on all the wonderful blogs I've been reading, and I think this is a perfect way to get into the sisterhood with you amazing folks.

  8. Fantastic color scheme. Can't wait for this to begin!

  9. OH! A challenge! Count me in 😉

  10. Definately going to try this, not sure how many posts I'm going to get up yet but we shall try and see what happens

  11. Fuaaaaah, sounds like a plan. Waow, you're icon is amazing~

  12. Ooo! I look forward to this, I did a post promoting it which you can see here ( : http://themorbidfashion.net/2011/05/28/red-black-clothing-accessories/ ). I'm going to try and come up with a few more posts for it as well.

  13. Hummm I really like the idea, I have a lot of black, but not so much red, but I will try and join in anyway 🙂

  14. This sounds too fun….I would also love to participate! I'm off to find that fab red & black jersey….jk ; PxoSadahttp://dressologyhq.blogspot.com

  15. Just wanted to let you know, I've posted about your Blog Event on my blog! Looking forward to it. Pop over and check it out: http://bit.ly/iK2C3vxoSadahttp://dressologyhq.blogspot.com

  16. My promo postI had doubts about the content of the post..1.does it have to do with clothes? (Specifically the ones you own only..or could I do collages or a post about an outfit i found on the net?)2. Can i do post about say books, music,art, or other non-clothes related stuff themed- Red and Black?Thanks! 🙂

  17. Kiwi, nope, your posts don't have to be about clothes at all. Outfit collages would be great, as would books, music, art or any other topic you like. 🙂 Just as long as it fits the theme (Red & Black) and has an overall "dark" element so my Goth readers don't have heart attacks. ;-D I know some participants who will be doing cars, movies, etc. It should be fun for all!

  18. This is a great idea. I'm going to try to make at least one post, too!

  19. Yay! Okie..Thanks! :)Now i am excited!!:D

  20. Oooh! I might be a little too late to cook up some outifts for this, but I'll definitely spread the word and try to participate in this ..

  21. Lynn, the Mr. Linky form will be at the bottom of each of my posts for the week. You just have to put in your blog name and the URL to your Red & Black post, then click Enter. Then it will ask you to choose a thumbnail image, which will be displayed on my post linking to your post. 🙂

  22. I want to participate, but don't know how to fill in the Mister Linky sign-up form…
