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.

She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting Oh dear, that sounds like a dreadful situation. I've lived through similar difficulties in my own life, and my heart goes out to you, truly. May I offer you some advice? I don't have the cure to your problems or a magic wand that can make them disappear, but I do believe that some good can come out of your living situation. The first thing I'd like to make note of, is that everyone makes mistakes. As human beings, we have to make mistakes. There's no way around it; it's how we learn and grow. And as we get older, we don't stop making mistakes. Your parents are no exception. Although we look to our parents for guidance, and direction, and support, we have to understand that they aren't perfect people, and they make mistakes. They may not always lead us in the right direction. They may not always set a good example. They may not always be there for us, to encourage us and support us when we need them most. And that's okay. Everyone makes mistakes, and we have to accept that. But we can't let allow other people's mistakes to hurt us, my dear. And I know it hurts. Your mum might not understand how her actions make you feel. You said you haven't been the same since your parents divorced, and I know how challenging that can be to go through. But you know, some of the brightest, wisest, and happiest people I've met, are people who have dealt with difficult problems in their lives, and used them to grow as people. You can let your parents' mistakes get to you, and make you upset and depressed; or, you can accept that they aren't perfect people, accept that they make mistakes, and accept that their mistakes don't have anything to do with you. So here's what you do, friend: you can't stop your mum from going clubbing, and that's okay. Don't try to. Don't fight with her about it. You can let her know how it makes you feel, but don't get into an argument. Accept the situation for what it is. Your mother is her own person, and she is accountable for what she does; you aren't. Next time you start to get in a fight or an argument with her, just step back, and withdraw yourself. Try it, see what happens. Once you decide not to let other peoples' failings affect you--and you do have the power to do this--then you'll find a sense of peace you probably haven't felt before. And you'll learn from your mistakes, and the mistakes of your parents, and everyone around you, and you'll be a better person. Press on.

If you are getting abused to the point where you bleed, call the police immediately. This isn't acceptable behavior.

Hey, Just wanted some advice to help me on what to do on this. Ever since I was 3 I've been both Verbally, Mentally, And Physically abused. To me, this is normal since it's been happening for so long. But I just can't take this thing anymore. When I get home I always get yelled at for no reason. I have been on Anti-Depressants for the past 1-2 years. Been going to counseling for 6-7 years for family. Nothing has changed yet. I just need help on how to handle this. Thanks.
