Goth [stereo] Types - The Victorian Goth

The majority of Goths are unique in their style and music preferences. 

However, within the subculture there are certain "types" of Goth with particular characteristics. I really don't like stereo types but if i am gone write about one type of Goth - The Victorian Goth wins! Here only some information about the outfits of this (stereo) type.

In general a Victorian goth is the one's who dresses in an older style. 


Clothing 
~ W o m e n  ~ 

Victorian Goth is often a very detailed look, involving many layers of heavy and often impractical clothing - for example, a lady's attire might include a steel-boned corset, stockings, bloomers, petticoat, skirt, bustle, blouse, veil and parasol. A Victorian goth may be seen wearing a black corset, long black skirt, lace gloves, top hats, bustle skirts, holding an umbrella perhaps or mourning veils sported by many a dark diva or dashing dandy are clearly borrowed from the Victorian era. Plus jewellery of course. This type of goth is not to be mistaken for a vampire goth, they dont wear fangs but still wear a paler shade of foundation. A Victorian goth can be labelled from their clothing BUT they do have their own mannerisms.

In general a male Victorian Goth wears black trousers, waist coat or jacket. Plus top hat. 
Attire for gentlemen typically includes frock coats, frilled shirts and waistcoats. A toned-down version is generally more appropriate for day-to-day wear, comprising perhaps of a long skirt and ruffled blouse. Surprisingly, amassing a Victorian Goth wardrobe can be useful when it comes to casual attire - bloomers are undeniably comfortable, and a long black petticoat looks stunning partnered with leggings and boots.

Hairstyles and make-up tend to be elegant - classic up-dos lend a dignified air. Some Victorian Goth guys may complete the look with sideburns or a moustache, although this is quite rare.

Jewelery / Accessories 
Jewellery is ornate, and is likely to include lace or jewelled chokers, cameos (Goth-styled cameos may be less traditional than they appear at a first glance - skeletal women, skulls and crossbones, or bat motifs may be seen, for example), and lockets, or more whimsical designs featuring birdcages, skeleton keys, teacups or Ouiji boards, echoing the interest that many Victorians held in spiritualism and the occult.

Cocorosie - Gallows 
(Beautiful Video and Music)


Well i have to admit that maybe i am a hopeless romantic person, deep , deep, deep down.
I read all these books, watch all these movies about this pure love between two people (with all the things they had to deal with) and i wonder why our society nowadays is entire the opposite!
Well, i still hope for the true love. I really hope that someday i will find my romantic man, who he will be mine and only mine..
