When Goth Fashion Fails, Part 1


Goths are a serious bunch, I know that for sure. But we do have a sense of humour, just like everyone else. Things have been getting pret-ty serious here, so let’s take this post to chill out and have a laugh at ourselves. I present to you the first (of hopefully several more to come) goth fail pics, photos that show goths might not be the fashionable freaks they make themselves out to be. Hell, everyone makes fashion faux paus once in a while, especially those on the dark side. Welcome to the circus...

We've already covered the falls and gas masks, staples of the cybergoth fashion world, but it goes without saying that a little tact can go a long way, otherwise you join the world of muppets and toilet brush heads. 


 DIY or die. But not necessarily when it means raiding Dad's backyard shed.

 This one's more of an observation than a joke, but being cyber means looking the part 24/7. Returning to the real world means you may as well hang out with those in the cancer ward.

Remember when Mother dearest used to dress you in the 'finest threads' complete with comb-over and spit-wiping your face? And how much you hated it, especially when it was in front of the school gates? Well spare a thought for the children of goths. Yep, their parents vaccuum the house to Sisters of Mercy, have blood-drinking sessions instead of Sunday afternoon BBQs, buy you your first PVC corset when you're 13 (boys not excluded) and decorate the house like it's Hallween every day. A world of white picket fences, golden retrievers and Abercrombie and Fitch is a world away, but a destination they just one day may reach.


 This is just bat-shit crazy.  Points for the effort, though.


 The Mortal Kombat's Sub Zero influence is not lost on us.

 ...and if anyone of the above examples weren't enough for you, then let me make this clear: Goth expression is limitless and can cover clothing, acessories and hell, even furniture (provided you don't do the full Ed Gein) but for Satan's sake, stay away from the god damn car!
