Get all the tips and help you need to master the goth look. From make-up to hair to fashionable goth clothing, weve got what every teen needs to know. - Page 3

1 This is a good article, I have only one negative comment, this is not all "goth" - only one kind which would be punk! But to all the punk-goths out there, this is a great article.

1 Do you realize how pathetic you actually are? Trying to TEACH kids how to be a goth?! Goth isn't a fashion, it's a way of life, and it comes naturally, you don't just decide to turn Gothic overnight. Also, another thing, using Good Charlotte as an example of "goth fashion" wasn't a very wise choice. They are the biggest bunch of posers on the entire planet, trying to be something they're not. You people make me laugh - why don't you just let kids grow up to be themselves instead of trying to make them be something else? I mean, I'm not a goth, I'm what most people call hXc (for all you dumb people, hXc is a type of music called Hardcore: bands like Hatebreed, Stampin' Ground, Killswitch Engage are hXc.. if you know who they are), but I didn't just suddenley turn this way because of some pathetic article on a website informing me what to wear. Get a life.

1 Tsk Tsk. This will go on forever. Marilyn Manson is a great, intelligent man, with great music. But, this is the thing that so little people understand. He is NOT GOTH. Let's not teach kids/teens that he is. Besides that, this page is pretty decent. As someone else said, if you're going goth, be original, don't copy the styles of others.

1 Hey people at KW, you have a done a really good job on teaching the younger generation not to be afraid of us goths! There are just a few things though: I'll start from the top, with your comment on how the boys from Good Charlotte are Goth. Sorry dudes and dudettes, this isn't true! Good Charlotte are actually a Nu- Punk band, they wear the things they wear to present an air of rebellion about them. If you want to name a mainstream film or celebrity that has a Goth thing happening, then you should DEFINETLY watch Moulin Rouge. Goths aren't all about studs and black and white makeup, we are about art, literature and in a lot of cases, we are Pagan (not devil worshipping AT ALL) - the costumes and makeup from the film Moulin Rouge portray Goth culture quite well. My second point is aimed at "drawing stuff on your face." Whatever you do, don't go for the upside down cross on your forehead, you will be laughed at! Also, Goth didn't arrive with Sisters of Mercy, Acidalayde, if you want to pick a time when black was 'the in thing' look at Siouxie and the Banshees from the 80's, they thought they were punks but they would be now what people call Goths. In conclusion, when you have your Goth look the way you like it, please please please dont go around telling people your a vampire, and hissing at them in the street, it just annoys and gives a bad reputation to the rest of us. It's all about feeling beautiful!
P.S. I really want those patent leather platforms!!!

1 These are great tips... IF YOU ARE A POSER. You will be a great one if you follow these. Firstly its not going Goth or bieng Goth, it's Gothic. Secondly, Marilyn Manson is great but if you are going to be so called "Gothic," Good Charlotte is not the way to go - try Slipknot. Being a Goth is not just slapping on some black clothes and make-up one day and saying, "Okay now I am Gothic," it's about attitude and music. If you are Gothic you are Gothic. You don't decide to be a Goth because it looks cool, it's not supposed to be. DON'T FOLLOW FASHION OR TRENDS and do not care what people think. Don't go and cry cause someone laughs at you, suck it up, you wanted to wear it so deal. This is the stupidest thing ever. I could go on forever listing all the things wrong with it but I am too tired. Pathetic.

1 Ok, you all pose really bad arguements. "Goth" is what you make it. But yes, you all have to admit that most "Goths" wear black and chains and boots, etc. It's just how we are. But yes, Goths CAN be preppy and wear pastels. Goth is about attidude and points of view on life. If you all think Goth is just one specific thing, I wouldn't go calling yourself it. I'm sorry, but in my point of view most of you are posers. This article made me mad... Argh. - Dancrchika55, if you don't like us, don't post ok?
- GenericName, I agree.
- Introvert, I see your point but your over-enthusiastic.
- GC is cool, HAHAH all I can say is: get a life.
- vampiric, As I said before, there are many types of Goth, so don't go baggin' the ones that aren't like you. - Farrand, very helpful, good point.
- Silver-Blood, you'll grow up one day.
Sorry if I offended anyone but everyone has their own style of goth, mine, for instance, is vampirism/witchcraft/horror/darkness/blood and well stuff.

1 Ok... sure there are a lotta Goth styles but the boots/black nail polish/ dye doesn't make you a Goth! Plus, you are either born Gothic or not. Or your life takes a horrible turn and you become one. Plus, Goths aren't all depressed. I am a Goth and I am hyper most of the time, if sugar is lying around. Lol. Plus, I have a question? Why do preps need to wear bright colors that cost $888?

1 I'm sorry but Goth isn't something you want to go. It's something you are, something you feel and become. When you're asked when you become your version of a Goth, you can't answer, cus it's who you are. Slipknot 4ever can replay when I read an article. It just proves that the Goth thing isn't taken seriously. You shouldn't have to read about it, you should just do it. And it's not just all about black.

The reason is because I have a guy who really likes me, and we liked each other back in the 5th grade, and he's even got me presents and everything, but now I'm starting to doubt whether I still like him or not. And he is a great guy; he's silly, funny, kind- but I just don't know if he's the right guy for me. Plus there's a friend of mine who I know likes me as more than a friend, and he's a great guy, too. I really need advise!! Oh sweetheart, your situation is so, so very far from being complicated. In fact, it's actually, entirely simple. But I'm here to help you see that, because you can't see it yourself quite yet. Brace yourself, you may never hear such advice in your life ever again. Or you might, I can't predict the future. You're in sixth grade, you said. Assuming you live in the United states and weren't held back, you're probably 12, maybe 11. The problem is, the human brain isn't fully developed until a person hits the age of about 25. This means, without debate, that your brain unable to fully grasp what being in a relationship actually entails, what it means, what the consequences are, and so forth. You can't even fathom it, my dear. I couldn't at your age; no one can. You've just begun to hit puberty at this point in your very young, completely normal life. Certain hormones are now being developed by your body that, up until puberty began, your body did not produce. Let me explain, in simple terms, what this means: these new hormones are giving you fuzzy feelings for boys, but these feelings are not what people with fully developed brains call "love." Love means being self sacrificing, compromising, giving and taking, communicating clearly and honestly, and so much more. What you're feeling is a part of love-romance-but it's not all there is to love. It's actually just a few simple chemicals being released in your brain: dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and few others. Your brain releases those chemicals when, say, you see a boy you like, and those chemicals make you feel all fuzzy inside. In fact, (brace yourself,) there's nothing inherently special about the boys you like, or the boys that like you; in fact, they're also, entirely normal, and aside from a few minor differences in character, completely like most other boys their age. Had you been born in another town, gone to another school, you would have gotten the same fuzzy feeling about whatever boy you thought you liked at that school. You see? I'm not saying this to make you feel insignificant, but perhaps the insight will make moving easier for you. The next place your militant parents settle down in will also have a middle school, with a bunch of normal 11-14 year old boys and girls, all doing the exact same things the kids at your school do right now. Does that put things in perspective for you? The world is a very, very big place, and it's home to billions upon billions of people. Your situation is far from being a needle in a hay stack; it's more like a blade of grass, in a vast field of foliage. The feelings you're feeling aren't uncommon or complicated, they just feel that way to you. (Now, really brace yourself, because this is going to get uncomfortable.) We, as people, tend to think that we're special. Each one of us a unique snowflake, drifting about in big blue sky, that exists solely to show the world how special we are. The problem is, the other seven billions snowflakes (people) think exactly like we do, and in this way, we are all the same. We think our problems are new problems that no one has ever dealt with before, and no one else could possibly understand the pain and suffering we're going through. We all think this way, by nature; but it's simply naive. Heartache and suffering have existed since people existed, and possibly before then. Your situation may not be ideal to you, but once you come to terms with the fact that life isn't ideal for anyone, you might actually feel comfort. The easiest way to cope with our many problems, is to accept them for what they are: a part of the human experience. Natural, normal, repeating generation after generation without end. Again, these are concepts that require some deep thought, and you might not fully grasp them quite yet. But remember them. With time, as you grow, think about them more, and you will find peace with your life. And remember this: although you're stuck (for now) on a giant rock hurling around the sun at an incredible speed, you're not alone. With billions of other people stuck here with you, you'll never be without friends.

I personally think that when you ARE ready then go for it! As long as the person you like isn't a jerk to anyone or you go for it! Just don't get too serious. It's middle school. Good luck!
