Whilst there are some similarities to the traditional Victorian Goth, Neo-Victorian Goth fashion is defined by the fantastical or futuristic twists given to the wearer's attire and appearance.
Neo-Victorianism is actually an aesthetic movement in its own right, described by Wikipedia as 'combining Victorian and Edwardian asthetic sensibilities with modern principles and technologies'. However this form of Neo-Victorianism, which often involves imitating Victorian behaviours or even re-enacting Victorian life, such as writing letters in formal prose with a fountain pen and exhanging calling cards, has no particular connection with the Goth scene, although I'm sure that many Goths (unsurprisingly, probably mainly Victorian Goths and Neo-Victorian Goths) do indulge or would like to indulge in such a lifestyle.
