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: 9  Sweatiness: 9
Jenivere comes up trumps once again with the extreme FMB / facepaint combo.  Not sure why she's holding a FUCKING GUN but I'm pretty certain the 'why the fuck are you making me do this' look she's giving the camera explains a lot.  Did I mention that she's holding a FUCKING GUN?

Gun's part of a costume. She's Domino from the X-Men.

Not sure this is so goth. In fact, probably more geek than goth. This is cosplay of Domino, a character from the X-men comics. She gets lucky with guns...

I would kill for those boots. Otherwise...

Spot on guys, Domino I was :) and bloody boiling too! Love my boots, but after a few minutes in hot sunshine the layers of PVC involved turned me into a walking oven. :s
