More Choices

Blvucchi

One of those recent design collaborations that doesn’t get nearly enough attention is Cozy Kids x Blvucchi. They made a choice that will appeal to people who like neon, vintage color from the 1990s, and a little bit of old school hip hop.

There is no improvement possible in ethics. Even some of the money they made was given to the Black Lives Matter movement!

Disturbia

Disturbia, another company that Dolls Kill once actively promoted, is tied with Killstar in terms of appeal to old school goths. Although the dishonest retailer may have given this brand the green light, it still emphasizes inclusivity.

Why not avoid the middleman and place your order directly from Darcy or Mercy if you adore their clothing on Dolls Kill?

Cyberdog

One of the world’s oldest rave and cybergoth stores is Cyberdog, a designer from the UK. As you can imagine, their entire platform is based on inclusivity and being the “weirdest you” you can be.

For as long as I can remember, they have been a pillar of the right to free speech. They have always been very diverse in their choice of models and apparel. Love, love, love.
