Happy World Goth Day! Since 2009, May 22 has been the one day on the calendar set aside for those of us, like yours truly, to to celebrate our darkly decadent selves and make our presence known to the rest of the world. It’s not just a phase — I’m nearly 50 years old, and I still wear black on the outside because it reflects the blackness on my inside! Whoo-hoo!
And as I’ve noted before, many historical costume movies and TV shows infuse their designs with a certain gothic edge. Sometimes, this is due to the story delving into horror, mystery, and the macabre, but sometimes, it’s coincidental. Either way, World Goth Day seems like a good time to review and compare some favorite gothic fashion treats.
