Using Windows?  OTF fonts do work, sometimes when installed in Windows fonts, it
is not picked up by Gimp.

First thing to try is put the font file "something".otf in your Gimp fonts


Start Gimp up and see if it is recognised. Failing that sometimes these "bought"
from some fonts designer are not particularly standard. Can sometimes  be fixed
in a font editor but not straightforward.
