Glitter Goths, aka 'Glam Goths', are closely related to the perkygoth tribe, and the look incorporates some familiar elements of perkygoth fashion, such as brighter colours (although not necessarily pink). Glitter Goths may style themselves to resemble glam rock artists such as David Bowie, but the key word, obviously, is 'glitter'. On your face, in your hair, on your clothes... if you don't look like a walking disco ball (in a good way) then you're not doing it right.
Glitter Goth make-up may be inspired by the colourful designs of the New Wave and New Romantic eras, and electroclash styles - and of course, if it shines, shimmers or sparkles, you're on to a winner. Rhinestones and other stick-on jewels are also popular.

Perfect example of what I'm talking about...
Between the bright make-up, the glitz and the glamour, the overall look is slightly surreal - it's hard for the onlooker to decide whether the glitter Goth on the high street has whizzed through a time portal from the 80s or simply been beamed down from another planet.
