Types of Gothic subcultures
Arrived on stage in the 1980s, this traditionalist listens to the music of the time and their gaze will often reflect the scene of the time. Lots of black, occult, and otherworldly images may appear as well, along with piercings and pale makeup.
Unlike trad-goths, this band involves a lot more color and tends to give a futuristic vibe. This is heavily inspired by goth, rave, and cyberpunk elements. Their aesthetic includes bright neon colors, dreadlocks, matte black, PVC, and sometimes latex.
This is very inspired by Victorian fashion and iconic literature like that of Bram Stoker Dracula. Their ideologies are wrapped around darkness and brooding mood but with a penchant for romance and love, as the name suggests.
These types of gothics tend to mimic the look and feel of vampires. People wear false fangs and some even file their teeth to the extreme. Their look involves long, dark hair, with pointy nails and dark eyeliner.
