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!

Um, yeah, so thanks for the lift and everything, dad, but could you, like, leave now? I see some of my friends over there...

Dad...Uncle Fester? Is Dad trying to goth it up, too?

I tried on a collar like the one that guy's got on once, for poops and giggles. I looked down and almost stabbed myself in the face. The spikes are too long to even be intimidating - he looks like he's trying too hard to put people off. Makes me want to give him a big hug and a candy bar.

I actually quite like what daddykins is wearing there. I reckon he can easily jazz it up with a collar or belt :D

The redhead in the middle looks just like me in almost everyway. Make the shades a little more Andrew Eldritchy, the skirt and corset more ripped up, some patches on the jacket, replace the necklaces with a leather collar and a snowflake necklace. It's odd. O_O

It must be a bit annoying to spend all morning getting gothed up then to walk down the street and have another bunch of goths walk past you even more gothed up than you are. :((((

I'm diggin' his jacket but not with the collar. Her dress is pretty kickass, imo.

@A Girl Named Steve- You, me, and the redhead in the middle need to find each other and have fun being Identical Triplet Destroyers of Worlds.

I've absolutely been in this situation at concerts before. Nothing says cool kid like having your dad follow you into the venue.
