PlasticBob met Nico in a smoke filled bar in Berlin and took her back to his playbob mansion. Beautiful but distant, she speaks little of her hazy past but looking deep into her eyes you can see reflections of another world.

This is an introduction to Vanity Kills! No, I’m not talking about a design of corset I created a few years back by the same name but writer and future contributor to the Gore Couture blog! It’s pure coincidence they share the same name but I think from that coincidence came a shared respect and interest in fashion and the macabre.
I met Vanity Kills a couple of years ago online when she interviewed me for Auxiliary Magazine. I loved her style of writing so we got chatting again and she agreed to help me with the new website! She wrote the About page and also did one of the first blogs – Top 10 reasons to shop with Gore Couture.
As well as writing, modelling and other creative endeavours she is a member of the atmospheric dark electro band Venal Flesh who take inspiration from plastic surgery, medical waste, beauty & suffering.
As you can probably guess, I’m a little bit excited to have her on board with Gore Couture covering an array of topics to make things interesting!
