Many people are surprised when they find out I’m a goth, because I don’t look the part.
Truth be told, I don’t quite look the part anymore.
Back in High School, I discovered gothic music with The Cure and black metal with Hypocrisy and I would slap on white foundation, black lipstick and I did dye my golden blond hair black, much to my Mum’s despair. Sorry again for that.
But for me, the goth culture is not just dark and deep emotional music.
It’s the whole Do It Yourself culture : sewing, knitting, cooking from scratch, painting, using art and crafts to express ourselves.
I am also very lucky to have travelled Europe from a young age and as a child I was fascinated with gothic architecture and with elderly Spanish widows wearing a black lace veil.
And above all, it is finding comfort in the beauty of Nature.
How about you ?
Are you a goth too and what drew you to this inspiring community ?
Comment below and tell me all about it, I’d love to hear your story !
