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!


Hunk O' Burnin' Goth

Thanks to Trance Kat

Gothiness: 8 Sweatiness: 10
Lord a'mighty, feel his temperature rise! This crazy Kat has chosen to do an impersonation of Keanu Reeves in the middle of a desert. That's wrong on many levels. Note the classic 'Jesus' pose favoured by many a full-length Goth, accentuating their sacrifice - they have suffered so that we may giggle.

You should see how hot he is in person!

I think he's almost got the Pinhead from Hellraiser outfit going on. Damn, he's got to be sweating!

That's more of a Cenobite (Hellraiser) outfit than a Matrix one, I think.

Nice photo, quite nice looking model, interesting skirt. But, is that brown trainers that I spot!?

I actually either met him, or someone dressed similar as him last (2008) burning man. I asked if he was hot, he said he wasn't, and he was use to it. I on the other hand, melted into a puddle of fleshy ooze every day at mid day from the heat.

Holy crap! I know that guy!
Yes, Kat is that hot in person. No, he doesn't sweat.

Hot wasn't where I was going with it. The first thing to come to my mind was "douche goth".

What majesty. I went to Giza...it was a transporting experience. Now, looking at this pic, I know what that dessicated black husk at the foot of the pyramid was...(goth missing the point...its not about you).
