Aloha my wonderful merfolk!
Today I bring you another tag blog post! I have seen this done on YouTube by a few of my favourite YouTubers and I thought it would be kinda fun to do my own!
You can see Toxic Tears do the tag here and Its Black Friday do the tag here. Other Youtubers that have done the tag include Drac Makens, Allison Eckfeldt and Ree Ree Phillips. Of course there are plenty of videos on YouTube on this tag should you wish to watch them!
So here we go, the Goth Tag!
1. How long have you been goth?
That’s hard to say as I have kinda floated between genre’s or at least different styles and colours of clothes, however I’ve been interested in the subculture since I was about 13.
2. How were you introduced to goth?
I’d have to say when I first discovered Marilyn Manson through his video for Tainted Love. It was the girl who went from being a nerd to a goth that made me realise that was how I wanted to dress and who I wanted to be.
3. What Gothic sub genre would you put yourself in?
I don’t place myself under any if I’m honest as I don’t limit myself to one style.
4. What do you believe to be the bases of the Gothic subculture?
I believe it started with the music and it grew from there, bringing in the fashion aspects etc.
5. What do you dislike about being Goth?
I dislike the stigma that comes with it. I dislike the fact that because we wear a lot of black or we are expressive with our make-up, we get insults thrown at us or items/fists thrown at us. I hate the fact that anyone who is alternative is hated for being themselves.
6. What do your parents think of it?
Both my parents were part of the Rocker scene back in the day, so they approve wholeheartedly of my decision. Plus, they respect my choices as an adult.
7. Eyebrow or no eyebrows?
For my personally, eyebrows. Simply because I would never get them even if I shaved them off. Some people really suit not having eyebrows and drawing them on though, so it’s each to their own.
8. What is your favourite band?
I’d have to say, at the moment, it’s Disjecta Membra. Although I’m starting to enjoy Bauhaus and Siouxsie and the Banshee’s more and more.
9. Your opinion on Marilyn Manson?
I like Manson and have nothing against him.
10. What were your baby bat days like?
Dyed my hair black at thirteen and had some pretty questionable clothing. Also, a lot of sweatbands and spiked belts.
I tag anyone who wishes to partake in this tag!
