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!


Batty Goths

Thanks to Evaxebra
Gothiness: 10 Sweatiness: 8
Of all the Bat's Day shots, this is the apogee - Like a modern day Joan of Arc, this dark delight is backed by a hoard of Goths laying seige to the castle of schmaltz that is Disney. I worship at the alter of your majesty, Gothette!

And lo it came to pass that the occasional Goth was also very hot in the other sense.

I love Bat's Day! I'm not Goth, but I share a lot of the same interests, and I LOVE the way the ladies dress...some of the guys too!

I repeat my claim, my moderating friend - hottiegoths a plenty. Tonight I dye my hair black and change my attitude. I think we're all missing a trick here?!
