Types of goth subcultures

  • Traditional Goth

Arriving on the scene during the 1980s, this traditionalist listens to the music of the era and their look will often reflect the scene of the time. Lots of black, occult and otherworldly imagery can also appear as well as piercings and pale make up.

  •  Cyber Goth

Unlike trad-goths, this bunch involves a lot more colour and tends to give a futuristic vibe. This is heavily inspired by the goth, rave and cyberpunk elements. Their aesthetic includes bright neon colours, dreadlocks, matte black, PVC and sometimes latex.

  •  Romantic Goth

This is very much inspired by Victorian fashion and iconic literature like Bram Stoker's Dracula. Their ideologies are wrapped around the dark and moody but with a fondness for romance and love, as the name suggests. 

  • Vampire Goth

These types of goths tend to emulate the look and feel of vampires. People wear false fangs and some even go to the extreme lengths of filing their own teeth. Their look involves dark, long hair, with pointed nails and dark eyeliner.
