The aesthetics of Victorian fashion are widespread throughout the Goth scene - the corsets, parasols, lace gloves, top hats, bustle skirts and mourning veils sported by many a dark diva or dashing dandy are clearly borrowed from the Victorian era. However, none embodies the decorum and grace of the Victorian aristocracy quite like the Victorian Goth. Obviously.
I want this outfit So. Much.
As well as traditional Goth music, a lot of Victorian Goths listen to classical music and opera. There are a few Victorian-inspired bands within the scene, including Emilie Autumn (yes, her again) and her particular brand of 'victoriandustrial' music, Rasputina's creepy cello rock and darkly extravagant music such as Sopor Aeternus and the Ensemble of Shadows. Other bands of interest to a Victorian Goth may include Abney Park, Lacrimosa, Autumn Tears, The Dresden Dolls, The Clockwork Quartet, Hannah Fury, Lady Laudanum, Life's Decay, Nox Arcana , The Decemberists and Unextraordinary Gentlemen.
