Dress Up Gothic

What is Gothic? According to it has nine meanings from pertaining to a style of architecture, to a style of literature characterized by a gloomy setting, grotesque, mysterious, or violent events, and an atmosphere of degeneration and decay, to the Middle Ages, and being barbarous and crude.

Trueblood is the most popular show on HBO and the new movie Twilight, both are about Vampires. I haven’t seen Twilight, but from the previews it looks like a great movie. I’ve been watching Trueblood faithfully and it is intriguing.

Trueblood and Twilight, both has two things in common it’s all about Vampires and their Gothic wardrobe. We have individuals out there that will go all out on dressing up in Gothic from painting their face white to wearing bloody red lipstick.

Can you dress up Gothic without looking too extreme? Of course, you can Dress up Gothic.
