Spooky Converted Church Complete With Graveyard Up For Sale As Family Home

House-hunters with a taste for all things ghoulish have a rare chance to make their home in a Gothic church, which has its very own graveyard in the garden. The Grade II listed building, on the market for £450,000, has kept the original stained glass windows, elaborate octagonal church tower and even the ornate altar – now in the kitchen. In the garden there is the occassional gravestone, although prospective buyers are assured visiting mourners are rare. Inside the Lincolnshire property there are three bedrooms tucked under arching beams, a spiral staircase and original flooring.

Kyemah McEntyre, Teen Who Designed Her Own Prom Dress, Was the Brains Behind the Best BET Awards Red Carpet Gown

Remember Kyemah McEntyre? She’s the high school student who designed her own prom dress and subsequently captured the Internet’s attention with her fierceness. And while you might not know her name now, it’ll surely be a household one in no time at all. Naturi Naughton asked the teenager to make a similar creation to wear on the BET Awards red carpet Sunday. 

Naughton, a former member of the girl band 3LW, went for a Nubian Queen look in an trumpet flare dress with tribal patterns. The tangerine orange color popped against her skin and accented with red, yellow, and green throughout the bodice’s ethic decorations. The actress, who’s currently on the show Power, kept her accessories simple with just a pair of circular gold earrings to let the powerful piece speak for itself. The 18-year-old designed it, while the same seamstress who made McEntyre’s dress, Markell, brought the sketch to life. 

The pair became connected through their shared hometown, East Orange, New Jersey. “Naturi, you continue to inspire people like me, especially in your hometown,” McEntyre shared on Instagram alongside a photo of Naughton wearing the gown. “Thanks for helping me build my foundation and giving back to the community. Naturi Naughton YOU ARE THE BEST! Thank you again for giving me the chance to continue to break the internet!” 

McEntyre originally shot to fame for her similar-looking dress. Hers, instead was red with darker colors in the familiar pattern. The cut was also different, with long sleeves and big bell skirt. “This is for always being labeled as, “ugly” or “angry”. Thank God, stereotypes are just opinions,” she captioned an image of herself wearing the design. The dress turned out to be such a success, she was crowned prom queen. “The most creative people are the ones who step out of their comfort zone and take advantage of the world around them. My abilities as an artist allows me to experience the benefits that versatility fosters,” she added. “Being exposed to all kinds of people and cultures is the muse for my artwork. I am an aspiring artist who is very passionate about the connection between art and the world.” 

In the fall, McEntyre will start studying at Parson’s The New School for Design (you can help her with tuition at gofundme.com) and before even beginning her freshman year, she’s accomplished something most graduates only dream of. This girl’s going places.

We began Black History Month examining the sometimes thin line between multicultural marketing and the exploitation of ‘blackness’.

What does ‪#‎BrandingBlack‬ mean to individuals, companies and communities and how can we keep the conversation going for the rest of the year?

[oh you mean, the reasonably priced tshirts that Black/Brown have been doing for literally decades? yo, hope this starts a real conversation because im kind of tired of nonBlack repackaging Black/Brown culture for easy consumption. this is what erasure looks like, ppl. this is watered down basic bullshit. now all the airbrushed shirts Black kids got as kids at malls/parties/from family friends are being sold by a nonBlack designer for a mostly white audience. how many Black/Brown ppl are even in the slideshow?! this is sad and disturbing.]

The Grammys stage wasn’t the only place today’s hottest artists expressed themselves. There was plenty of provocative spectacle on the red carpet as well—though, to be honest, it’s a little hard to care about it all after Kendrick Lamar’s performance.

1.) Lady Gaga

Even before her musical tribute to David Bowie, Lady Gaga was already honoring the late Ziggy Stardust with this glam creation from Marc Jacobs. Its electric-blue shade, pointed shoulders, and bold slit easily evoked Bowie’s outré, alien sensuality, and it would definitely be something we’d be talking about more if we weren’t too busy ruminating on Kendrick Lamar’s performance still.

2.) Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift took an unexpected risk with this belly-baring bandeau and it paid off as easily one of the night’s most daring moments—you know, next to Kendrick Lamar taking the stage shackled in chains for a rendition of “The Blacker The Berry,” a declaration of black pride poignantly juxtaposed against a statement about America’s disproportionate number of black prisoners. Meanwhile, Swift juxtaposed her crop top with a high-waisted skirt, and that was also worth discussing today, we guess.

Sorry, but did you even see Kendrick Lamar? Here, just watch it. Then we’ll get back to the clothes.
