Cemetery Goth, also known as the far more pedestrian-sounding 'death Goth' is probably best described as equal parts fashion style and personality type. Most, if not all Goths, are interested in such things as mourning and funeral customs, cemeteries, coffins, hearses - not because they want to be dead, but because death and the paraphernalia that surrounds it is simply interesting. Goths are interested in the unknown - and what is less known than death? Cemetery Goth, therefore, is the embodiment of this interest, and unsurprisingly, cemetery Goths are typically tapophiles.
Motifs relating to death are most popular, such as skulls and coffins. Roses and crosses may also add to the funereal aesthetic. The style itself typically combines elements of Victorian, romantic and punk Goth fashion - for example a ruffled blouse with a corset, flowing skirts, and torn fishnet gloves. Accessories include parasols, veils, delicate gloves, and silver or black jewellery incorporating the above motifs.
Make-up also tends to be black, although a dark crimson or purple lipstick may occasionally be used. Hair is also often dyed black. It may be kept long and ornamented with veils and hats (top hats being the most common) or spiked and backcombed in trad Goth fashion.
As well as spending time in the cemetery, reading Edgar Allen Poe, and collecting vases of dead roses (what? Doesn't everyone do that? I <3 my dead red roses, cheesy though it may be ^^), you may find a cemetery Goth attending seances (or playing with a Ouija board - although I don't recommend you try that one at home, kids. Paranoid I may be, but messing with various occult forces that I don't understand is something I DON'T do. C'mon, we've all seen The Exorcist... Ouija board jewellery, though? Awesome!), listening to classical music, or bands whose music has that certain air of grandiose melancholy, such as: Theatres Des Vampires, Apocalyptica, Diva Destruction, Fields of the Nephilim, Sopor Aeturnus & The Ensemble of Shadows and Phanatos.
