Gothic Fakestylers

I am writing this article by knowing that many of you will probably hate me or consider me kinda snob, but please…
Ok …let me clarify that.. :

–  I AM NOT A RART OF THE GOTHIC ELITE
I DON’T HAVE A MILLION DOLLARS TO BUY EVERY WELLKNOWN GOTHIC BRAND (FOR A LONG TIME I WAS BROKE AND THERE WERE PERIODS IN MY LIFE THAT I WAS UNEMPLOYED)
I DON’T GO TO MY WORKPLACE BY WEARING A KOKOSHNIK!!
I BELIEVE THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO HAVE MONEY IN ORDER TO BE A PROPER GOTH.
MY STYLE (VICTORIAN GOTHIC) IS NOT THE ORIGINAL AND THE ONLY ONE GOTHIC STYLE. –


GOTHIC POSERS
How many gothic posers have you seen on instagram who are taking the most dark,fantasy ,elegant pictures and in their life (usually stories) they are roaming with black t shirts and their blue jean by calling themselves at the same time GOTHS?
I have met many of those shitty “Goths”.

Determination of the Poser Goth:
Someone who calls hiself/herself a Goth and he/she is roaming on his/her daily basis with tight jeans and keeps his/her gothic clothes only for suturday night’s darkwave clubbing, gothic parties or instagram photoshhots!
There is only one place where a goth can not be goth: A WORKPLACE

WHERE DO THE “GOTHS” HIDE…
Recently I went to a gothic darkwave party in my town.There is still a small gothic community of Goths in Thessaloniki but real gothic lifestylers can only be counted on one hand.
I saw a room full of people dressed kinda gothic and dancing on the dance floor.As the time was passing by more and more people were coming.Somehow I begun to wonder..

Where in the god damn world are all these people are hiding at? I have been living in this city the most time of my life, I know almost every gothic person in my town , I am more than ten years into the Alternative community and there are only a few places for people like us.Moreover my town is not considered to be big enough.So…Why do I never see goths out there in the day on my daily routine?
Do they suffer from daylight like vampires do? Do they spend the morning hours in a dark cave or sleeping in a coffin?
NO !
On their morning routine they are just – FUCKING BASIC “NORMS”- !!!


BEING A REAL GOTH DOES NOT MEAN the following :
• You are rich and are able to buy every latest collection of the well known gothic brands
• You sleep with a lacy dress in a coffin every night
• All of your friends are goths too
• You are roaming with the Dracula book in your hand everywhere
• You have to roam like you go on Mera Luna (with an extreme gothic outfit) on your daily basis

 

GOTH IS NOT A MASQUERADE

IT IS NOT FOR SUTURDAY NIGHTS
IT IS NOT FOR INSTAGRAM PICTURES ONLY
IT IS NOT FOR BIG EVENTS/CONCERTS/FESTIVALS

Since you say that you belong in a gothic subculture means that your whole life is goth. Your favourite movies, music ,literary etc.Why does your  style that is one of the most important parts of gothic subculture has to be more “normal” on your daily basis?
If you tell to everyone around that you meet as well as on your public post that you are goth , roaming with a pair of tight blue jeans on your everyday life, YOU my friend are lieng NOT only to other people’s FACES , but you are also lieng to your very own self. – What a shame..-
The time that you will call yourself “Goth” again… atleast have the fucking guts to act and dress like a real one!
If you can’t be a goth on your daily routine there is always the choice of carnival!.
