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: 8 Sweatiness: 7
It's all very well looking afraid, dear, but the sun isn't a vampire and no amount of sitting by a cross is keeping you shaded. What you need is a large hat, preferably with a black veil. Anyway, vampires are supposed to be your friends. I give you five minutes before your face is bright red. Then you'll really have something to look forlorn about.

I have to disagree, she is obviously posing for the photo (very well might i add) I think she looks awesome, and I don't think the Sweatiness factor would be that high either, although she is running the risk of the famous lace sunburn tattoo....

She looks beautiful and isn't swaddled in lots of covered-up layers so what's your problem with her?

Although as Aradia points out, the sunburn will be interesting ...

I think she looks charming - loving the red lipstick. Lace suntan is a b-tch, though...
