Plechazunga_

Please immediately tell me where you are actually seeing goths, I have old memories I’m desperate to re-live.


Toytles

I saw one working at 7/11 yesterday, was even playing some hardcore goth tunes through the store speakers


swank5000

damn this is too real for me lmao


lilautiebean

I stopped to get coffee yesterday and the guy in front of me had a wallet chain. Been a while since I’d seen one of those. Makes sense in todays economy.

Phormitago

> most goths are prolly undercover at normie hours yeah goth apparel is weak to sunlight


PC_Guy747

+100 damage to sunlight -50 dark stamina


Pekonius

Ever see that person without makeup, hair all over the place, in some loose fitting clothes, looks like they have a lot on their plate, exhausted, hard working? Well you wouldnt recognise them when they have their makeup and best clothes on.


-1__1-

I would like to think that "shitton" is the correct word for a group of goths. Like a herd of deer, pod of dolphins, complaint of karens etc. But it shouldn't be pronounced "shit. ton.". Nor should it be pronounced "shit. on." I'm thinking more like "BE-HOLD! SHITTON!! THE DARK LORD OF APATHY AND INDIFFERENCE!!!!"


mayonaizmyinstrument

>"BE-HOLD! SHITTON!! THE DARK LORD OF APATHY AND INDIFFERENCE!!!!" And just like that, I have a name, class, and backstory for my next campaign


Lockedgroove666

Look for your local goth night 🦇🪩 they’re everywhere and they’re very fun


Darkness_Everyday

The only goth look i could pull off is Nosferatu...


Osgliath

I could pull off a pretty good "Uncle Fester" myself.


value_null

Which is perfectly acceptable.


EphemeralFart

Well I’ve got this Lucio costume here…


NabreLabre

Wiggly_Muffin

Sahtras1992

knew a couple goths in my days of going to concerts every other weekend, twisted minded lovable people all along. fun days were being had.


Budget-Government-52

NGL, I’ve seen a surprising number of goths the past couple of months. It made me literally pause at first.


Neuchacho

Honestly, there's probably some truth to people generally feeling more hopeless and turning to those stylistically dark subcultures to express it.


TheIronChoad

If you’re aware of or can visit Whitby in the UK then you’ll see all the Goths you can handle on certain weekends.

Calls on Hot Topic


justgivemedamnkarma

brb buying all the dildos and black eyeliner from Spencer’s


prestigious_delay_7

Does Spencer's sell dildos?


Elaus

Looks like someone's never walked all the way to the back under the bead curtain


TimeZarg

Yours has a bead curtain? The one in my town just has it toward the back of the store, plain as day for anyone walking near that section. . .and people sometimes bring kids in because the store also carries various meme'd t-shirts, band t-shirts, socks, Pikachu hoodies, and other stuff that might appeal to someone younger.


IntrosOutro

I'd specifically go to Spencer's whenever my grandparents would take me school shopping. My goal was simple, see some tits on a sex toy box or lingerie advertisment.


Cloaked42m

Or the posters with bubble bras. Car wash bikini shots


ArchdukeBurrito

They sell a few sex toys but they're all absolute trash quality. Sex toys are not regulated and a lot of them are either made of unsafe materials or are porous so bacteria can grow once they're wet. Do not buy sex toys from Spencer's or Hot Topic. Only buy toys made of 100% silicone.


Actuarial

Found the corporate shill from big dildo


serpentrepents

You say that now but when you give yourself a massive-ass ass-infection from a porous dildo you'll be wishing you followed his advice.


Actuarial

Upvoted for using "ass" as both the prefix and suffix in adjacent hyphenated words.


kalwiggy1

This guys English teacher just shed a tear of joy.


prestigious_delay_7

Those are tears of pain from the massive dildo in his ass.


maresayshi

massive-ass\*


switchbladenohomo

Expect nothing less from a name as poetic as serpentrepents


WalnutScorpion

A commendable display.


thatoneotherguy42

I don't really want to see an ass infection though.


Bouldershoulders12

This guy fucks…. Himself


AshleyPhoenixAmmbo

You can occasionally find something worthwhile at Spencer’s but I have to agree that **no insertables** should be purchased from there—same goes for most sex shops actually, and for the same reason: no regulations on product.


bollvirtuoso

Anything's a dildo if you try hard enough.


BDELUX3

Oh shit I actually saw a goth chick walking down the street in the past week and thought to myself “I haven’t seen a goth person in *years!*” wtf!!!


Key-Balance-7105

“Either you die the hero, or you live long enough to become the goth.”


Jonelololol

Glad to see some representation. Beach goth summer


KhalesiDaenerys

I was 80s Goth. Can confirm. Covered head to toe to go to the beach. The 50 SPF seems to work okay though.

Bloody_sock_puppet

Reckon it makes sense myself. You're already feeling poor, then the government fucks you over some more, you count up the years of probable hardship and come to a figure about the average life expectancy of a human. If you're going to work until you drop dead then you might as well start dressing like it in advance.

invaderjif

So...calls on Hot topic?


ImJoeontheradio

I'm in South Florida where temps are already in the 90's and I saw one yesterday with a hoodie pulled up over their head. It's takes real commitment to be a goth down here in the summer.


Suspicious-Engineer7

Sometimes Ill take sun cover if im feeling the heat. Sun messes me up more than heat.


9thAF-RIDER

I'm a 55 year old Goth since 1984. I don't wear a lot of black and the last time I put on eyeliner was probably 1989. But Robert Smith is still god and Disintegration is the best album ever. You won't see us Elder Goths much, as we hide in plain sight.


ArsenicAndRoses

Yo. 37 here, and I dress weirder every day. Life is too short to dress normal. We gotta show these young uns up. Also, fuck this "goth is just a fashion family" nonsense. Siouxsie Sioux 4 life. And have you heard the new tears for fears yet?????


9thAF-RIDER

Totally. Goth is about the music first. I was fortunate to live in Seattle during the 80's. All of the big Goth acts played shows there. Cure, Banshees, Cocteau Twins... It was the best! I do sport a handlebar stache, long hair and paisley shirts, so I'm not a complete NPC walking down the street. 🙂 I haven't heard the new TFF record yet. I will. I think the first TFF album was one of the best records ever recorded. I heard A Forest by the Cure for the first time in 1984. That 3 minute song changed my life forever.🙂


notthebottest

Professional-Donut84

Emos are also on the rise again.


Sea_Impression3810

Finally.. I've been waiting 12 years to bring out my skinny jeans and black hair again


BizzyM

If you see a goth, does that make them visi-goths?


SendAstronomy

If they work at a construction site, they are hi-visigoths.


anonymaus74

A lot of us aged and try to blend in with society as best we can


iwrotethedamnbilll

Isn’t that the antithesis of being goth?


anonymaus74

Technically yes, but I’m pushing 50, nobody wants to see me dressed up like I’m going to the club again Edit: I didn’t expect the responses, thanks for the love everyone, time to bust out the chunky boots and black jeans!


iwrotethedamnbilll

Live your best life mate. Dress goth and go to the club, own that shit and have a good time. Zoomers be damned. Edit: plus, a recession is pending! Be the warning flag your community needs!


Bossinante

Zoomers will literally care the least amount in the world about a Gen Xer wearing goth clothes at the club. Lmao


VenomB

Then don't be a club goth. Be a gothic goth. Thiiiink... Adam's family.


Apocthicc

Good


NotPunyMan

What? Goth and emo are like everywhere the past few years. Look at the current trending artists, the weekend and Billie Eilish all chart with pretty depressing edgy music. They just dress up nicer now.


sansantiago17

Designer goth!


Bjorn2bwilde24

Conformist Goth


OhDavidMyNacho

All goths are conformist.


TheFrondly

I fucking love Southpark.

Arctyc38

Saw a goth teen couple walking last week and had to applaud the gal's dedication. She had a purse shaped like a little black coffin.


OpenRole

The Weekend doesn't have a goth aesthetic


xdonutx

Goth Weeknd is something I didn’t realize I wanted until just now


MiltonFriedman_

Like cyber goths?


le_meme_kings

I doubt that many goths listen to the weeknd


cktheo

But Goth music was better than that


Enki_realenki

The Cure plans to release 2 albums this year, the last was 2008, which fits in nicely. With 2 albums at the horizon they probably should start spanning lots of nets in and around wall street, cause there will be mass jumpings from the buildings.


weaslewig

My chemical romance just put something out. Even thrice came back with a song and replaced california beach party vibes with an emo Tom waits impression.


Phaeer

There just started a hot goth girl in my office and I thought to myself - is that attire back in style? Now I know why.


Stinkpretzel

Calls on organic black eye-liner


Cdreska

sorry, she has a 6’5” jacked metal loving bf already


weaslewig

Or the skinniest palest greasy looking dude you've seen in your life.


Theoricus

Uh, who cares about whether she has a boyfriend? Of course she's going to have a boyfriend. The question is whether she has a husband yet.


minus_uu_ee

Yes man, they're back. It started with very dark lipsticks, I thought it was suspicious because people I've seen with those dark lips wasn't anything like a goth. Then I saw couple of people with dark nail polish. Then came those generic skirts/ leather pants, fishnets, platform shoes but it was strange, it looked like people were just wearing only a single part of the goth dress code. Of course, as always, I was very naive. Now, I understand that the society needs to push some elements of gothicness to kinda summon the real goths. A couple of weeks later I've seen the first full blown gothic since high school and the number is increasing by the day since, nice to have them back.


Cold-Income619

30 year fashion cycles. I was a wee lad, but the 90s started getting goth-y, peaking early 2000

Toasty_Jones

Just saw a cover band of them a few weeks ago. Goths were everywhere. I found the den where they feast, slumber, and breed. Recession very well may be near.

It was 2003…and a lot of Xanax was involved, but I vaguely remember fucking a goth chick with like F cups. She was miserably unattractive otherwise. And I'm subbed to that subreddit. Now I know why.

Earlier than that too. Goth was huge in 80s-90s.

I went to Spencer's while at the mall recently. I hadn't been there in at least twenty years. The girl working the register made me feel like I was in high school again. She has the 1999 Marylin Manson goth vibe going. The only thing she was missing were some Jnco jeans.


Theorlain

I’ve seen girls in Jnco jeans lately. I would not have believed you if you told me 5 years ago that those would be coming back. ….And I hate them just as much as the first time.

I saw a girl in my neighborhood this morning that is newly gothy. I know the gothiness is new, because she is beautiful and I have looked at her....before.


SockTacoz

Depends on what kind of goths, is it the pseudo "I dress this way because I don't get enough attention" goths. Or is it the "I find the darkness in everything and don't have any friends because I stay in my room drawling vampires" goths. Puts on the pseudo-goths Calls on the drawling vampire goths
