Goths are a sub-culture that often get written off by 'normal' people. What a lot of people miss out on is a great depth, complexity and beauty in this strange dark world.
Goths are usually seen in black clothing. The range of styles depends on their fancy: Victorian and metal are the two most typical but there are many others. Most of them wear heavy dark eyeliner and whiten their faces to mirror their obsessions with the morbid occult. Accessories include crucifixes and skull jewelry and occasionally candles.
Goth culture has a strong musical side- genres include dark wave, new wave, heavy metal and certain types of electronic music. There can also be a strong BDSM element to their look. Leather, latex, costumes, whips and chains can be integrated into a Gothic persona or also for kinky sexual play.
