Carmilla Voiez's debut novel Starblood has been reviewed by Jef from Houston Press. "This aint a book, it's a knife."
19th July 2011
You may have already noticed that Drac-in-a-Box is in the process of changing, Our customers love our clothes, but one complaint we receive is that delivery takes too long. To this end, apart from a few items such as the High Victorian style clothing and other items we make ourselves, we are changing the website so that the vast majority of items will be available from stock massively reducing the amount of time most customers will need to wait for their order.
It will, inevitably, mean there will be a smaller choice of products. To stock all of our old ranges in all colours and sizes would mean a warehouse the size of an aircraft hanger would be neccessary and I don't have an aircraft hanger to hand. Items which are not currently available can, for the moment, be seen in the ZZ_items_not_currently_available_ZZ section. Eventually the site code should be rewritten so these will not be viewable to torment you. As and when we make stock of other items they will be added back into the main catalogue so it is worth checking the website on a regular basis to see what is available.
I always strive to give our customers the highest level of satisfaction possible. If the changes upset you, please do email me. If enough customers prefer the old style of more choice and longer waiting times I will rethink my strategy. Carmilla x
9th July 2011

Okay so it's music rather than fashion related but I'm thrilled about this and wanted to share it with you. I cannot imagine any 80's Goth not knowing of the band March Violets. Well after decades of silence they have reformed and have a gig in London on November 13th. I'll be there. Hope you will too.
30th July 2010

Lots of new designs now available at Drac-in-a-Box. Exciting new range for younger gothic women can be found in the jackets and short dresses sections. More classic designs also added.
4th February 2010
Drac-in-a-Box ar featured in Gavin Baddeley's new Goth book
. It's full of beautiful photos and well worth buying. Goth is a well researched, beautifully illustrated and intelligently written description of the Gothic subculture throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. Some of the connections Baddeley makes surprised me; but they are so well argued that it is hard to disregard them, making it an illuminating and fascinating read even for a goth-elder. I was particularly impressed by Baddeley's analysis of the reasons behind the hatred and intolerance of goths and and anti-goth violence, including the Sophie Lancaster killing. I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone with more than a passing interest in the Gothic subculture.
31st December 2009

It's that season again. The one where we're all supposed to feel really jolly! Personally if it's snowing and cold I'm quite happy. Of course it's also that time of year when the postal system goes crazy.
If you place an order between now and Christmas we will process it as quickly as possible and will always try and get items out to you before the Holiday Season really kicks in. There are official cut off dates for Parcel Force and Royal Mail deliveries which I'll list below. If your parcel leaves us after that date there is still the chance it will arrive before Christmas but the postal and parcel services don't guarantee it so we always suggest to avoid disappointment order as early as you can.
We have lots of items in stock here so if you need your order for a particular date feel free to email us to check it's in stock or can be made in time. So all that remains is to wish you all (or everyone who celebrates this time of year) a very happy holiday of your choosing.

If you do not specify in the special instructions that you are happy for the upgrade we will send your parcel the normal way after the cut off and it may still reach you before Christmas or it may arrive in the New Year instead.

Bat points can be redeemed for free stuff, including, make-up, a gothic ball point pen, gothic hosiery or jewellery, plus lots of stuff aside. Check out our bat points area - link here - to see the full list of free loot which is available. Click on the photo link to see how many points you need to redeem to get the item. The great thing about redeeming bat points is we also donate money to the Bat Conservation Trust every time you do.

28th July 2008
When we started Drac-in-a-Box almost 10 years ago, our main reason, our mission statement, was to bring affordable gothic clothing to a worldwide customer base.
Over the years Drac-in-a-Box has evolved. We've become specialists in exclusive designs, neo-Victorian formal wear, Steam Punk, Exquisite Gothic corsets, Wedding dresses and gothic couture. When I looked through the site a couple of months ago I realised that we had lost sight of our original raison d'etre. We mean to reverse this and bring back the gothic everyday wear, bringing goth back in a way which is affordable to all budgets.
And so we give you our "Cheap but not Cheerful" range. Click here to see the full Cheap but not Cheerful catalogue or our full range of affordable gothic clothing for men and women. We pledge that for every neo-Victorian outfit or steel-boned corset, or tailored Gentleman's jacket we add to the website in the future, we shall also add a new item to our under £25.00 clothing range aswell. So spread the word. If it's for a special occasion or for everyday wear, Drac-in-a-Box is your one stop goth shop for all your gothic clothing needs.
We have more photo shoots of affordable clothing planned for the future so if you don't see what you want now, keep coming back.
20th May 2008
We have more Steam Punk items for women on our website to check out. Our sale is continuing including the 20% off stock corsets. Further reductions on some sale items today.
1st May 2008
Wow, what changes there are to the website now.
Firstly we have a HUGE stock clearance sale now on where we are currently selling off well over 100 womens gothic clothing, mens gothic clothing, womens cyber clothing and mens cyber clothing plus gothic boots. We also have
20% off selected stock corsets,
perfect if you're planning a gothic wedding or other formal occassion. Get your gothic corsets here, many ranges from stock, many corsets in our clearance sale. So we can have lots more space for the new ranges we want to produce and you can grab a bargain with glee. There are a few different places to find the stock items, in womens stuff, mens stuff and footwear you'll see in stock sections, a corsets stock sale section and in the footwear a shop soiled section. In cyber and industrial you'll find a cyber clearance sale section. Check it out and enjoy.
Secondly, we were experiencing page load delays and some down time with the old server due to the high number of quality photos on the website now and the volume of people looking through the website, so we made the change to a new and much more powerful server. This means that your shopping experience should be a much more enjoyable one.
However, as with all things internet based, the change over isn't as quick as it was supposed to be. If you have a number rather than dracinabox.com in the address field at the top, do not panic. It's a method to ensure everyone gets to the new website whether or not your provider has the up to date info it needs to get you here. All should have been sorted by now without this, but as there are the unexpected delays our web designer has kindly produced this redirect for us instead. You should not have any trouble using the new website and ordering your items from us, but if anything does confuse you, or if you have trouble, email us, we're here to help. In a few days all will be sorted and we'll be back to www.dracinabox
on your address bar once more. She says with inspiring confidence.
25th April 2008
We've added plenty more items to the women's gothic clothing in stock sale pages. Just pop into Womens Stuff then choose the In Stock option at the bottom of the section for lots and lots of gothic bargains. Enjoy....

6th March 2008
Today I have added lots of new gothic clothing sale items to the "In Stock" pages both in the "Mens Stuff" and "Womens Stuff" sections, also one or two items have been added to the cyber and industrial clearance sale page. Check out the bargains in store for quick delivery from stock.
Our apologies to anyone who has waited longer than the stated 72 hours for an email response, unfortunately Dorian has been down with a rather nasty flu bug, but he's now trying to work through the gummy eyes and unpleasant coughing (it's a delightful background noise to the work place) and will reply to everyone as quickly as he is able. He optimistically hopes to be up to date (back to 72 hour response time) by the end of business Friday. Only email responses and customer returns are affected by Dorian's illness, all else, including despatches and customer orders are not affected.
27th February 2008
I've been busy adding new product pages to the website. The popular men's gothic corporate wear, pinstripe waistcoat and trousers are available once more and these pages are online again. We have also added a beautiful neo-Edwardian gothic steam punk style striped jacket and skirt. I love this design so much and the photographs are amazing thanks to Shadow Jen and Gothic Image of course. Plus a beautiful new version of our old favourite the Opera coat is now online too.
We still have more female and male photo shoots in the pipeline so keep coming back for more. Ooooh, how we love to tempt you.
12th February 2008
I've been uploading some new products to the website. Mostly exciting new gothic hand bags, shoulder bags and back packs. Check out the mens stuff and the womens stuff bags sections to see all the recently added designs.
What horrific news about the Camden Market fire. I am so glad that it wasn't the Stables which was affected. However, I feel desperately sorry for all the traders whose hard work literally went up in smoke. Insurance will never truly cover their losses.
The female shoots should be happening soon. Just a small selection of big dresses and Edwardian Gothic. I'll share them as soon as the photos are taken and edited, promise.
We've had loads of great feedback from customers about the new website and our improved service levels and speed of delivery. thank you to everyone who has written. It is always a joy to receive your emails.
I hope everyone who is celebrating it has a romantic Valentines Day. We won't be, we've decided it will be the one day of the year we can be truly horrible to each other. Well the one day Dorian can be horrible to me. I usually manage at least 3 days a month. ;-)
1st February 2008
Another month into 2008. Where does the time fly to? We have two small scale photo shoots happening over the next month or two, both for female clothing and both romantic and traditional style clothing. We've decided to transport you to Edwardian England with our new designs. I wonder if it's as cold and windy there as here. We love Victorian Gothic clothing so why not a bit of Edwardian Gothic too. I hope you love what you see. I hope the results will be ready to share by early March. We are also designing new mens' gothic clothing. Watch this space and we'll let you know when the shoot is due to happen.
I am wondering to myself whether there is a market for gothic textiles. Would customers also wish to buy material to match thei garments they purchase from us? If you have a strong opinion on this matter let me know.
11th January 2008
Who reads the Drac-in-a-Box Gothic Clothing news page? We'd like everyone to read it, so on a semi-regular basis we're going to give presents to some of you lucky readers. The first 5 customers to enter the discount coupon code of 1101085discount into the coupon field on their new order of over Â£50.00 before VAT and shipping will get a full 5% off their goods. Offer is open until January 18th 2008 but only the first five people to enter the code will qualify for the discount which will be automatically taken off your order. Feeling lucky? Then go for it...
(edit) on 15th January not all of the coupons have been redeemed, so it's worth inputting that code on your gothic clothing order.
(edit) on 17th January, 'tis very strange. Plenty of gothic clothing and accessories orders have been placed but no coupons used. There are still 5 coupons still valid. Use them or lose them.
9th January 2008
We are planning a male gothic clothing photo shoot for February or March of this year. If you are interested in modelling or being the photographer for this shoot feel free to email us with details of your work and where you are based so we can discuss it further.
1st January 2008
Well it's all over. Christmas has gone and left it's mark in all our wallets. And 2008 is here. I have great feelings about 2008. I think it's going to be an exciting year for gothic music and fashion. We're back in the office now and processing orders which were placed over the holiday. Thank you to our loyal customers for helping 2008 start well for us. Long may it continue. We wish you all a prosperous and healthy,a gorgeously gothic and happy New Year.
18th December 2007
So who's ready for Christmas? Wish I was... we're still despatching gothic clothing, jewellery and make-up parcels, as the goods are made, until Friday, so UK customers who ordered in plenty of time should still get their goods for Christmas. We will start despatching again (after Friday) straight after the New Year. We are only taking one week out of the office and even then, even in our absence you can place your orders as normal as it's well automated with the new Drac-in-a-Box Gothic Clothing website.
Factories are shut for two weeks over the festive period, so goods may take up to two weeks longer than stated on the product pages. But normally we manage to keep up to the expected delivery schedules after Factory shutdowns as everyone comes back fresh and ready for work ;-) What you don't believe me? You think everyones hung over still from Absinthe binges and too much chocolate? For shame!
So do keep shopping, come to us to spend your Christmas present loot on beautiful gothic clothing and sexy winkle picker boots. Make our New Year as prosperous as we hope your's will be. To all our customers festive hugs, a magical solstice and a very Merry Christmas.
30th November 2007
Check below (27th Nov) if you're interested in details of our gothic clothing stock clearance sale.
Gothic event promoters, let us help you pimp your event. We're itching to set up a new section to post online flyers about worldwide upcoming and regular gothic clubs and gothic festivals. If you have any such posters email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd be more than happy to help you promote them and get more bodies through your doors and onto the dancefloor.
27th November 2007
A reminder for old customers and to let new customers know too, we do have a Gothic clothing clearance sale of discontinued items and overstocks here it is also in the male gothic clothing and gothic footwear departments aswell under the In Stock heading at the bottom of the sections. There are lots of items with a third off or even more.
23rd November 2007
Today we've been adding new and old styles of gothic footwear to the web store. Many of these items are in stock and discontinued items on the instock pages have rather attractive discounts, perfect for a gothic Christmas gift?
Unfortunately for us we have a few damaged items to clear in our gothic boots range too. For these check out the shop soiled section of the footwear catalogue, many items have been massively discounted in our clearance sale. If you see an item in this shop soiled section which you like and wish to make us an offer drop us an email. If we don't sell it at the listed price within 7 days of receiving your offer we'll seriously consider it, however we will need to charge you the actual shipping cost rather than the usual subsidised shipping costs if we accept a lower offer from you. But we can discuss the cost of this with you.
Keep your eyes peeled for more gothic footwear due online soon.
Don't forget if we don't have something you are searching for in our gothic catalogue please email us. There is a good chance that we will be able to get it for you as we have many worldwide contacts in gothic clothing, gothic jewellery and gothic or transvestite footwear.
20th November 2007
I've just uploaded the photos from our recent shoot of gothic clothing with Apnea and Auryn and the very talented photographer Lithium Picnic. I just adore these new outfits, hope you do too.
16th November 2007
We've got new stocks in of bags and footwear. We're keeping stocks of goth basics like make-up, gothic hosiery and drainpipe jeans. We've got many gothic corset styles, colours and sizes in stock so we feel more ready for the Christmas deliveries than we have any year before this. Heavy parcels have the earliest Christmas cut off date for overseas if the item you are looking at has an additional postage charge for overseas orders we need to send it very soon for it to reach you by Christmas. If you ever wish to check stock delivery times you can always email us, but the link above shows the last postage date for parcels over 2KG sent internationally. We use International Standard so that is the column to check. Datapost can be used at an additional charge.
Lighter weight parcels are sent by a different methods and have a much later Christmas cut off date. But to avoid disappointment we always suggest that if you can you should place your Christmas order in November especially if you are living outside the UK.
10th November 2007
Wow, the new look site is a month old and we have heard many good things from lots of new customers and returning customers. Thank you so much to everyone on your feedback. Some customers have asked for old gothic styles to be added to the new site and we have been happy to do so whenever they have still been available. We've also been clearing our stock room of lots of discontinued gothic and cyber clothing. Check out the Cyber and Industrial section and the Mens Stuff and Womens Stuff In Stock sections to see what we're clearing out in our gothic clothing stock clearance sale. All the discontinued items are non repeatable so items are sold on a strictly first come first served basis.
Some customers have been struggling with the address section of the new order form. May I remind customers that we need your full address on the form when you place your order so that the shipping cost for your gothic or alternative clothing is worked out correctly. If anyone does have a problem we will email you but this could slow your order up a little.
November already and the nights are cold and wintery, just as we like them. Nothing wrong with the odd bit of vampiric mist or stormy sky in my opinion and all the better for wrapping up tight in my warm woollen Priest Coat and my warm gothic boots. I'm even making a gothic muffler for those times I'm waiting at the school gates for my beautiful eldest daughter Lydia. Can't wait for "The Golden Compass" to be released either. We're expecting further interest in the Steam Punk movement after that little gem hits the silver screen. Well we have Victoriana aplenty for like minded souls.
We shall not close for long this Christmas but please remember that the postal service gets rather snarled up for the festive season especially for dispatching overseas orders. So please get your order to us as quickly as is inhumanly possible to avoid disappointment. And don't forget to use our new wish list facility for registered customers to get those goodies you really wish for from ol' Saint Nick.

To concentrate on our growing line of black, black, and yes more black, gothic clothing, gothic clothing and even more gothic clothing, well we've always been traditionalists at heart. We are clearing our lines of cyber wear. We'll be keeping many of the black industrial gothic lines, but the brightly coloured pinks and yellows are featured in our cyber clearance sale which can be found in Cyber and Industrial section in pur left hand menu. We even have some rare Automaton stock which we are selling very cheaply, considering how collectible this stuff is. So I hope you enjoy what you see and buy what you want. Now it's off to dispatch yummy parcels to our customers.

We've added more delicious items of mens and womens Gothic Clothing to the website today. We hope you love what you see.
It's getting close to Halloween and Whitby Goth Weekend. The air is truly Autumnal, just as we like it. If you need your parcel urgently feel free to email us. We are however, sending out parcels every day this coming week to insure as many customers as is possible get their gothic goodies in time for the festive period. Well we've always said Halloween is like Christmas for Goths.
We are so pleased that the new website has attracted plenty of new customers into the fold. Welcome all new comers, we hope you like what you see here. Some old customers are sorely missed. Please do contact us if you're having trouble getting round the new site, we'd love to help you or hear your feedback.
Lots of exciting things have been happening at Drac-in-a-Box. We've been working on the new website, designing a new line of mens clothing which we plan to bring to you some time in the New Year and we've even had a fashion show on a Gothic Cruise. As always we have plenty of emails to keep us burning the midnight oil, so I'd better get on with some real work rather than this pleasant soliliquay. At the moment emails are on average receiving a response within 72 hours. We hope to speed this up after the Halloween parcel dispatch dash. We aim to continuously improve our levels of customer service. We hope you enjoy every aspect of your dealings with us here at Drac-in-a-Box Gothic Clothing.

Thank you for the positive feedback we've been getting on the new website. We've been selling Gothic clothing for many years now but this is the first time that everyone who has commented on our website has said positive things. We're very pleased, we love the new spooky fun graphics and the sections seem to help our customers find their way around.
We've been asked whether we still have a plus size gothic clothing section, in truth we haven't although we still have loads of plus sized items on the website. But if you type plus size into the search engine on the site you'll find a huge list of all our female and male plus size gothic clothing.
We've also been asked whether we still sell gothic children's and baby's clothing. We didn't sell a huge amount of it on the old site, so at the moment that line is on hold. We're bound to be selling stock items off pretty soon then after that point if anyone does wish to buy childrens gothic clothing from us please email us. If we have enough interest we'll happily start it again.
If there is anything else you'd like to see us sell. Or if you saw a product on the old Drac-in-a-Box site which you can't see here, do let us know. If the product is available we'll be happy to get it for you. And if it's an old product and it's still available we'll make it a priority to get it onto the new site if we know you're waiting for it.
As many of you know there has been a postal strike in the UK. As we always send signed for parcels most of our post has been unaffected by this. If we have told you that a parcel has been sent out and if you have been waiting for it for longer than 4 days in the UK or 10 days overseas please do drop us a line, as it should not be the strike which is to blame.

Well the new version website has been up for just over a day now and already we're getting lots of positive feedback, thank you. Please feel free to give us positive and negative/constructive feedback as it will help us make the shopping experience more pleasant for everyone. One teething problem is that the Pound Sign on some emails is showing up as the html code for a pound sign, which is Â£ we aim to sort this out as soon as we can find out why, but in the meantime don't pannic, it just means British pounds. Don't forget if we are missing anything from the website which you wish to purchase email us and we'll add it as a priority.

Welcome to the all new Drac-in-a-Box Gothic Clothing website. We hope the new easier to use format will please you. Please do take time to register an account with us. Not only will it make your returns to the store much quicker and easier, it will mean you can check the status of your existing order online, you can make a birthday or Christmas wish list and if you are not in the UK it will also mean you can see everything in your own currency. Cool features eh?
As you may have noticed, not all of our old products have made it over to the new store. We will be spending time adding the more popular of the missing ranges back into this new webstore between now and Christmas, time allowing. However if there is something missing you wanted to buy, just drop us an email and if it's still current we'll make it a priority to get that item added to the new site for you.
This website is full to the brim with gothic clothing and gothic accessories. We have lots of gothic hats, gothic boots and boxes full of gothic shoes, gothic make-up, gothic jewellery gothic fake hair and hair dye and more. However if you cannot find what you are after in any of the above sections please do email us. We can normally get what you are after. If you are planning a gothic wedding let us help. We can supply your bridal outfit, your bridesmaids dresses and the grooms outfits down to the top hats.
