Gothtober LifeTime Achievement Award – To DAY 23, Jenny Walsh, who has participated in SEVENTEEN consecutive Gothtober Calendars, making her the most seasoned Gothtober Artists in existence! THANK YOU, JENNY!!!!


I am a thousand pumpkins grateful for every last bit of effort that’s been given in the name of The Gothtober Countdown Calendar. Every participant gets treats in the mail, and a party (when we’re not having a worldwide pandemic) and perhaps the feeling of achievement of doing a thing. Thank you for joining us and we hope to see you in 2021!

In lieu of not having a whole lot of preparation for this prestigious festival, the judges are the creator of Gothtober, Julianna Parr, (that’s me) and her trusty science officer, Cristin Pescosolido, both of whom have pieces in Gothtober and are disqualified from consideration. We expect to have a larger panel of judges next year, so get ready!
