Portraits Of…Euro Goth Culture 2015

Goth means different things to different people…In the 80’s, the term was a part of the hardcore community, used to describe the way women in the scene dressed, or dudes who were really into Christian Death. Fast forward to 2015, and the term Goth and the people who are a part of the community have taken it to a whole other level of self expression, especially in Europe. Check out these amazing photos from this year’s Wave-Gotik-Treffen in Germany, the biggest fest of its kind in the world.

    They’re cosplaying, not goth. Still pretty rad costumes nonetheless. I like the style.

    My bands have played that festival several times and each time I return I want to cut my Mohawk off and become an accountant.
    There are a number of genuinely cool people there, who gather from across the globe to make it a truly spectacularly fun drinking event, but everyone else is just a mega backdrop of Super Dork!!!

    These are not actual goths. We have a shitload of these people here in the Netherlands and what they are is attention-whoring cosplayers.

    all the good goths have died from heroin overdose, the cosplayers are left.
