The Bat's Meow, an online store that describes itself as selling "alternative fashion for alternative kids," is living up to its slogan.
Up for sale on the site is a goth christening dress modeled by a creepy doll sitting on (what else?) a gravestone. The dress, which sells for $50, was designed by Sheila Schroeder, self-described mom of "four wee gothlings." Schroeder says the inspiration for her goth baby togs, which also include "bondage pants," was that she felt "weird dressed in my finest Dark Angel, Retail Slut, or Morbid Threads while pushing the stroller containing a glittery-pink little girl."
Maybe Sheila doesn't realize there's gonna come a time when her kids will inevitably rebel against her -- and will insist on wearing only sparkly tutus. Get ready, Sheila!
