Styles Of the Gothic subculture: Traditional Goth

A Traditional or Trad goth is usually a style that is directly descended from the first goths. Characterized by Back-combed hair and punk-esque clothing.

The style usually involves leather jackets, piercings, extremely dark makeup, fishnets and occasionally
 bondage gear. they often accessorize with ankhs and gloves.

Trad goths listen to the bands who grace the Batcave (the Velvet Underground e.g.) Bauhaus, Siouxie and the Banshee's, The Birthday Party, and Sisters of Mercy. however most trad goths feel that the "real" goth scene is dead and don't always like the newer generations. this doesn't apply to all traditional goths but I've met a few.

Makeup consists of heavy black eyeliner, black lipstick and sometimes some black eye shadow. This is not required but is often seen.

hope you liked this post. if I got any facts wrong just comment and I'll make changes. do the same if you feel I left something out.

Bats and Kisses,
