Get the Goods on Goth Style (pg. 4)

Get all the tips and help you need to master the goth look. From make-up to hair to fashionable goth clothing, we've got what every teen needs to know. - Page 4

First of all kattmaggot06, before you diss anyone, get your words right. It is Goth. Gothic is a type of art, literature, and roman architecture. Anyone can call themselves GOTH but don't mean it. Geez, before you get all hyped up and almost have a heart attack waiting for your computer to get over here so you can make a fool of yourself, understand that no one should be criticized over something they say. Geez. DeadVampireInside, learn what vampirism is before you say that it's a belief, got it? I'm a...we're not going into that because it might be offensive for all of you. Here's something for all of you to listen to, Get Real and Deal! Got it? Good. Now go back to your sad pathetic life.

1 I can't believe this article was posted. It's way too stereotypical. A) Marylin Manson is shock rock and Good Charlotte is pop punk. B) Switchblade Synphony, Rasputina, Sisters of Mercy, Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees and all them are real goth bands. C) Why does everyone bring Luciferians into the picture? For all uneducated people, Luciferians are worshippers of Satan. D)You can have your natural hair color if your goth. E) Ugh, I can't think of anything else I'm so irritated by all these articles and mad that people think spooky kids and Marylin Manson are goth. All the stereotypes and people who say, 'Ew, goth is icky. I mean, I don't like the preppy style because I personally believe that it's following the crowd but I don't post it everywhere or hate on them. Sad thing is I like those shoes... And I like Hot Topic and all, but it's looked down upon by most in the gothic community. I prefer European sites myself.

1 This is only my opinion, I didn't really read what you other guys put but I got the fact you were pretty annoyed - lol. But I think being Gothic is more than the whole mainstream Marilyn Manson crap. I don't think many Gothic people or "goths" are like that. Most of them are quiet, deep, like poetry and stuff like that. I'm into HIM, Static X, Deftones, Velvet Revolver, and Rage Against the Machine. I don't think anyone should be put into categories, and their whole way of thinking defined by one color - black. I'm more than that. I'm more than the make-up I wear. And about that - I mean the make-up is just how you feel, an expression of yourself. If you merely put it on so people can say, 'Oh look, there's a "goth".' Then OK, fair enough. I wear mine because it makes me feel good and I'm expressing myself lol. I wear black tutus and boots, not because I have seen other gothic people doing it, but because it makes me feel good. I don't think anyone should change themselves to fit in or be part of a trend. Gothic is a way of thinking, and I don't think it should be put into this mainstream way of thinking. But if you wanna wear pink, hell go for it, don't force anything!

1 You know what this article reminds me of? This Insta-Goth kit I saw. The only difference is that they were JOKING! This article is complete crap. Goth is a lifestyle and it cannot be learned. You'll only turn out to be a cheap imitation and that's just not goth. Oh and before I forget, Good Charlotte is NOT goth. I could go on and on about that but I won't. Anyway, being Goth is all about expression and individuality. There are absolutely no limits. And goth isn't all black. Personally I like to incorporate a little color into my style. And that's another thing. Style! We all have our own. That is why there are so many different responses to this article. In fact, not two goths are alike. We are unique, intelligent people not a stupid dress code! We don't have a special uniform that makes us goth so why should you make people believe we do? Now all you people saying, "Thanks so much. This article helped me out a lot." You would probably make fine goths as long as you don't fill you head with crap such as this. And Marilyn Manson is NOT goth either. Okay. Whew! Stay graceful, stay you.

1 Okay that was the biggest bunch of crap that I have ever read. You don't "go" goth, you just are. This article will help posers yeah, but it's so stereotypical. It made me angry just reading it. I want the five minutes in my life back that I just wasted reading that article, and writing this message.

1 I'm just writing this to prevent you from misleading anyone else: 1. Good Charlotte is NOT gothic, they're actually pretending to be "punk", and one of the farthest things from gothic I've ever seen. 2. Marilyn Manson and Slipknot are NOT gothic either, PLEASE stop saying that, it's killing me! 3. You can't "learn" to be gothic by wearing gothic clothes; it's actually a way of life. DO NOT think that you can "learn" to be gothic from an article, or indeed from anything. 4. To whoever wrote this article, don't you think that you should actually KNOW something about the gothic culture before sending an article full of misinformation out into the world where ignorant people can access it and mistake it for the truth? 5. If you want (real) gothic music, listen to The Sisters Of Mercy or Siouxsie and the Banshees.

1 Okay here ya go. Goth is not a style, its ones anger towards the world, thus expressing ones self with black clothing.

There's a rare disease which currently affects 80 individuals worldwide, called Progeria. A person who is born with this condition experiences rapid aging, and will live to be, on average, about 13 years old. ...how old are you? If you were born with this disease, how would you live differently? Are you older than 13? What would change in your life, if you knew you were living on borrowed time? Are you younger? How would you perceive the world differently, if you knew you only had a few years left? Life is the most precious gift a person can receive. Don't take yours for granted.

I've been through a heck of a lot too. I have severe health problems and there were so many times I have lain in a hospital bed thinking I was going to die. I deal with severe depression from that along with the matter of loneliness from not being able to leave the house a whole lot my whole life. I don't have any friends  or really anything to do. I almost - you know- did it once. But then after that I went through a chain of dark events ( that I would rather not say for the topic is too arguable on this place. However, in a Catholic way of speaking, I have met a group of Legion. :P ) That practically changed my mind around into a more depth view of life. We, as humans, take life too seriously. I mean it. Is your life really that bad? Really? Are you alive? Are you speaking to another human who might actually smile at you once in your life? Did you see that pretty butterfly that just went by? We are so used to seeing a better, pampered life that tv shows or someone we know has, and we get jealous. " My life is horrible". Oh really? Did you say hi to your dog today? He's happy to see you isn't he? Smell the rain coming? Doesn't it smell good? We fail to look at the small good things in life and concentrate on " Jim broke up with me. I'm never going to be happy again!" Well....maybe Jim wasn't the guy you are supposed to end up with. Ever think of that? Ever think " Well maybe there is an even better guy out there I am supposed to be with! I just have to try and find him!" Eh? I've also learned: Not everyone is going to like you. No matter how nice you are and how much you try to be friendly, Not everyone is going to like you. I just went through this a few days ago with someone on here. She didn't want to talk to me because I was friends with someone who does bad things. Now that is very stereotypical and not right. Just because she does bad things mean I do bad things too? No. It means I accept everyone. Does that mean I accept the bad things she does? NO. But does that mean I have to not like her because of the bad things she does? NO. I love the person, but not the actions, and it breaks my heart to see the person do these things but i still love them. Get it? It's like if your child does something bad. Does that mean you hate them forever? NO. I try to help people, and for some reason i am attracted to those who are wronged or in pain. Another thing, I love horror. Like a lot. I have it allll over my page. Sometimes that scares people and they might say to me " What do you want?" or " You scare me" before I even say hi. You know what else? There are SO many people here that have told me that I am the nicest person on here they have ever talked to. So, some more stereotypes for you. Main theme is, take a break ( seriously) stand outside or something and just look at the sky, breath in the air and watch that bird carry a worm to her nest. Don't judge others by passed on information. Life is good if you make it so.

I feel like I am getting an anxiety attack everytime someone tries to talk to me (i have not been diagnosed with social anxiety)! They don't know how bad it is. People say that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Well, suicide is the light at the end. I have attempted suicide twice but I always chicken out. I need someone to kill me. Please. You're really strong for getting through these suicide attempts thoughts you may be having, the proof is that you're alive right now - despite everything you're struggling with. If you're strong enough to have made it through life this far (even if things might not be enjoyable to get through day to day) you're strong enough to keep going and get through this. Trust me, anxiety isn't something you have to struggle with for the rest of your life, there are ways to cope, you just need to reach out to somebody (a teacher, parent, doctor, counsellor or trusted adult). Which of course will be the most difficult part, but you can do it, I believe in you. Suicide ends your chances of things ever getting better for you, and you deserve to live, and be happy. Suicide isn't selfish, because you're not thinking about how worthy you are of life. Allow yourself to be selfish in the sense of knowing that you deserve better than death.
