Goth_ The Goth subculture is an offspring from the late 1980's punk era and remains one of the longest running subcultures to date. The goth subculture is heavily influenced by aesthetics, wearing dark make-up 24/7 and many black clothes. There is also an air of 19th century romanticism, enforced by films such as Sleepy Hollow and Dracula. This subculture almost blurs the lines between folktale (e.g.c
vampires) and reality.
Music_ The Cure, Southern Death Cult, Suicide Silence, Lamb of God.
Fashion_Black, coloured hair, black make up, piercings and tattoos.

Neo-Goth_ A sophisticated "grown-up goth" look, adopted by fashion designers and stylist as an edgy fashion look. Black is still a heavy influence in terms of colouring, and layering and texture is also essential.
Fashion_ Leather, chains, industrial, black.
