Goths, I love 'em! I even used to be one for a bit (well, I was a Didi-Goth for at least 6 months). But there's one thing that troubles me about our cheery friends: what to do they do in summer? All that makeup, long black leather and rubber must get very sticky. I think we should show our respect for these poor unfortunates, struggling to stand out from the vanilla crowd despite blazing temperatures and sunshine that puts the rest of us in shorts and vest tops. Join me in celebrating the majesty of the Goth, who, eschewing any practicality whatever, still has the commitment to don a full length leather trenchcoat, stupid New Rock boots, and half a Superdrug counter of makeup. All hail the Hot Goth!

Gothiness: 6 Sweatiness: 4
Of course Cybergrrrrrrrrls get to cheat a little on the clothing stakes, but this lady can only be suffering under all that backcomb. Fortunately a plastic cup of Snakebite & Black saves this young lady's day.

Sorry hang on... is the GUY on the left wearing lace stockings?
That's not Goth that's cross dressing. Plain and simple. (or complez and frilly in his case)

She doesn't look goth to me. Cyber girl, definitely. I like her style.

Have to agree with Sakara, definatly not a cyber look, but i'd say it was more a deathrock look than industrial.

and yes cross dressing is common but thats not crossdressing even though theres lace stockings pvc miniskirt and corset being worn there...theres a fine line difference.

even the description is wrong...thats not snakebite and black...its a slushy...probably cherry
