In this pilot episode of Gothic Homemaking, Aurelio Voltaire begins the process of turning a tiny, New York City apartment into an elegant Gothic lair. In the process, he demonstrates how to make a “Gothic Wine Bottle Candelabra” and invites some sexy friends (and possibly a werewolf!) to a Gothic painting party.

Orville does nothing… but complain.
