I’ve been toying with the idea of what new, slightly ridiculous developments we can expect in the very long list of Goth subgenres? There just seem to be more bloody genres everytime I turn around.
So, for the mere sake of your enlightenment, the Gothic subgenre gods have told me what to expect. I was chosen out of millions, to deliver the news to all of you. If these new trends sound frightening to you, well, I can’t say don’t panic, because all of this is 100% fact. Here goes:
It’s going to be really big. Combining the history, and cutesy morbid outlook of death by drowning into an aesthetically pleasing fashion statement. Popular themes include: Hair styled to appear wet, bloody anchors, incorporation of navy, and overpriced rain boots.
Bubonic/Black Plague Goth (BPG)
With all the darkness of widespread disease, and drab-chic tones BPG offers, it’s a wonder it won’t infect and spread to every limb of Goth. (LOLZ) Themes include: Incorporation of burlap, and indiscretion to hair-washing.
Encompassing the decadence and grunge of high-security prisoners, jailbird Goth wraps it all together in a comfy little bundle. Many Jailbird Goths create RPG alter egos, and after formulating grisly crimes and dashing escape tales, they grace among the modern world unnoticed in their prison garb. Themes include stripes, soft soled shoes, and jumpsuits.
Volcanic Goth (VolcaGoth)
Including all the drama, disaster, and natural destructive and morbid nature of volcanic eruptions, it makes sense that Goths would be attracted to the tragic yet environmentally necessary world of volcanoes. VolcaGoth includes themes of singed, sooty, and grungy clothes, makeup styled to appear sooty and messy, and occasionally fake gore and theatrical injures, for aesthetic, of course.
The future is coming!
Now...what else have YOU suspected is next?
