It’s that time of year again and, unfortunately, I feel the need to remind you all about Summer safety for you and your loved ones. I don’t care whether you’re at a concert or the grocery store: do not leave your darkling in the car! I implore you: because they are covered in black velvet and silk, unlike you or I, they are extremely prone to heat stroke. Some people say you can leave the car windows rolled down an inch to keep them cool, but that does not prevent sunburn! Goths are delicate creatures and will sizzle, smoke, and blister if left in the car for too long. Additionally, bringing along a compact with white press powder will keep their skin hidden from Normals and daylight in the event of melting makeup. Always remember: bring extra sunscreen and your buddy’s favorite collection of romantic poems when spending time at the park together. Stay safe, and have a lovely Summer.
