One of the very best things about our Kickstarter to launch print and digital subscriptions has been all the wonderful feedback we’ve received from everyone! Reading the great comments everywhere from our readers and fans is making us warm and fuzzy inside. Getting feedback from creatives and artists that we have worked with and admire for their talent and creativity has been building up our creative energy.
When we set out to make our Kickstarter video we decided early on that we wanted to include many of the artists and creatives we’ve worked with and featured over the years in it. We thought that including their testimonials and insights on Auxiliary would really help convey what Auxiliary is all about.
Our Kickstarter video might be a bit on the longer side (we just had so much to mention and with five years of issues and publishing we had a lot to show) so if you haven’t watched to the end, do it now to see our testimonial videos!
After five amazing years and thirty two stunning issues, we are ready to take Auxiliary Magazine to the next level! We are transitioning to Print and Digital Subscriptions that will allow us to create more ambitious content and deliver Auxiliary Magazine directly to you!
To launch Print and Digital Subscriptions we have chosen crowd funding with Kickstarter. You, our readers, have shown us so much support over the years and we hope you will support us as we finally launch Auxiliary Magazine subscriptions!

Less than one week left to get your print or digital subscription through our Kickstarter! After five years of publishing online editions with print on demand we want to switch to print runs so we can offer print and digital subscriptions. We have chosen Kickstarter to pre-sell subscriptions to gather up the funds we need for our first three print runs.
Over the first three weeks of our campaign we have added many updates! Check them out to get a Reclaim Goth, Punk, Industrial, Cybergoth, Steampunk, or Grave Wave banner to share. We posted what people are saying about our Kickstarter on social media.
We shared some behind the scenes photos of our June/July 2014 swimwear editorial.
“One of my favorite photo shoots and collaborations to date was published in Auxiliary Magazine. If you love seeing unusual editorials, support a publication that helps facilitate them, and help fund its future in print!” – Zoetica Ebb cofounder of Coilhouse Magazine
“Auxiliary Magazine is one of my absolute favorite subculture-focused publications. Gorgeous photo shoots, well-written editorials and articles, and all-around fabulous eye candy. I really want this Kickstarter to succeed. Did I back at a reward level that will snag me a Reclaim Goth shirt? Of course I did.” – Jillian Venters author of Gothic Charm School
We did a mini photoshoot with the prototype of the first Auxiliary Magazine T-Shirt from our Reclaim Collection. Photographed by Jennifer Link and modeled by Erin Moser with hair by Erin Moser and makeup Chelsey Merrill.
Introducing the first Auxiliary T-shirts, the Reclaim Collection, a collaboration between Auxiliary Magazine and James S. Cole. Currently available through our Subscription Launch Kickstarter. The collection consists of six different Reclaim T-Shirt designs with an oversize graphic on the front and Reclaim Goth, Punk, Industrial, Cybergoth, Steampunk, or Grave Wave on the back with Auxiliary Magazine and www.auxiliarymagazine.com below. They are hand silkscreened and printed on modern fit soft 100% cotton T-shirts and available in mens and womens styles in sizes small to extra-large.
Subculture, dark culture, and alternative culture are more popular than ever. The influence and inspiration of darker subcultures can be seen in street and high fashion, mainstream and popular music, television and film, and society as a whole. But despite all this appropriation, actual subculture and underground scenes are suffering and struggling to survive. Auxiliary has embraced both unique underground fashion, music, and media as well as the mainstream manifestations inspired by it, believing that both together allow for the most creativity and the most possibilities. There has long been a great dialog between subculture and the mainstream, one influencing the other and back and forth. But if one is suffering this dialog falls apart and things begin to feel unauthentic.
It is time to reclaim! We are putting out a call to action to reclaim goth, punk, industrial, steampunk, cybergoth, and grave wave for yourself. Make it what you want it to be and don’t be afraid of the terms, own them.

It is with a heavy heart that I write that Arielle Clements passed away June 18th, 2013 at the young age of 24. She was known as Relie Vicious, the model with piercing eyes who was extremely easy to photograph.
Photographed by Laura Dark for the Malice Aforethought beauty editorial in Auxiliary Magazine’s October/November 2010 Issue, Ohio Bat Girl, Dan Brunk of Fotographie X, Billie Stafford of Bloody Messy Girls, David Heasley of Cover Photography, and myself Emily Strange of Strange Photography: she was an inspiration to us all, a muse, and much more.
Arielle was a ball of fire: fun, fierce, caring, beautiful, smart, wild, outgoing, she did what she wanted. In her short lived years she made sure to make an impact on the lives of everyone around her. She was loved by many and will be deeply missed, but never forgotten. Her stories will be told, people will laugh for her, and that ball of fire she was will never burn out.
Our thoughts are with her family and friends.
