Gothiness: 7 Sweatiness: 6
Delilah here is taking no risks. If she got even CLOSE to a tan, she'd be thrown out of her coven. But if she wants to stay paler than pale, she's made two fatal mistakes:
1 - cover your hands, suntanned fingers are a dead giveaway.
2 - don't get on a boat and drive into the middle of the Caribbean sea when there's not a cloud in sight.

I hope she doesn't think little fingerless gloves will do the trick, either. She'll end up with the Goth equivalent of a farmer's tan...

hahaha. i can't believe you actually posted a photo of delilah. i posted your blog to my (protected) twitter feed a few weeks ago because i TRULY EXPECTED to find her in there and was disappointed she wasn't. crazy.

I would venture to say
3 - Don't wear a mesh shirt because there is the possibility of the sun penetrating your skin through that sucker.

She's smiling; that ought to deduct a few gothiness points, no?

Actually, that shirt is made of a material that blocks over 97% of UV light. Seriously.

A schoolboy error, Weirdimals. Fielding only holidays amongst the Mod Wolves.

The fact that someone called me Noel Fielding with fake boobs has completely made my life.

Also, re: smiling goths
We're fond of saying that with goth you either get the joke or you ARE the joke. I get the joke. :-p
