At the paranormal division of the historical registry in New Orleans, it is noted that there are ‘sightings’ of a female sanguinary templar vampire that roams the area. She appears in human form and then vanishes into thin air. Caught on instant camera, a timeframe spanning from 1947 to 1961, she appears again and again…

Karen St. Claire: Jackal’N the Ripper [SPOKESMODEL ELECT GALLERY]

In the Warehouse District of Old Saint Louis, Jackal’N strikes again! Traipsing through Benton Park in bent-minded bloodlust attack, the ripper glides past the old warehouse district and continues on past the Historic Lemp Mansion.

The Audience Is VAMPLIFIED: Crowning the 2019 Darkest Goth Girl [SPOTLIGHT/ANNOUNCEMENT]

The 2019 DarkestGoth Spokesmodel search has been one of the most robust in our history, as finalists were challenged not only to submit galleries, articles, and videos, but also to promote their work and show that they were community minded in the process.

KAREN ST. CLAIRE: Embracing Your Dark Side [ARTICLE]

The term “Goth” already rings a dark resonance of tubular bells, dark skies, and decaying abandoned churches in a remote countryside for the imagination gone wild.
