I’m really into this whole “Pop Witch” thing, which probs relates to my Saturday night ritual of partaking in a DIY seance in my witch-stick-smoke-filled bedroom whilst watching the ’90s movie magic known as The Craft for the bajillionth time. #FairuzaBalk4Evs We’ve already got some spooky company in the Pop Witch department (see: Stevie Nicks’ iconic shadowy bohemian frocks and Florence Welch’s billowing gothic Goddess numbers.) But make (b)room (LOLz) for indie shadow-y siren, Chelsea Wolfe, y’all, whose tunes are often awesomely described as “doom-drenched electric folk.” Besides the mind-losing reviews for her most recent LP, Apokalypsis (WHUT!), there’s also her UH-MAZING style game-particularly her penchant for a good veil. *Sartorial spirit fingers* So, for this week’s Favorite Things, I had a chat with the dark crooner about her killer closet, which includes a seriously spooky horse hair and horn cuff/and which may or may not have resulted in me sliding under my desk. *J’Dead* In other words, don’t mind me as I pretend it’s 2004 while getting a tramp stamp with my fave Wolfe lyrics (“We could be two straight lines in a crooked world”) before, duh, uploading that ish all up on mah MySpace. #EmoChic

Shops: I try to shop when I’m on tour because then I can visit stores like Weekday, this great Swedish brand you can’t find in the U.S.

Tattoo: A script tattoo on my ribs by artist Cris Cleen. It’s a Sylvia Plath quote from her poem “Widow.”

Nail Polish: If I paint my nails, which is rare, I like OPI silver.
