Day 24 - Name the best websites for Goths
Well, I have more than a few favourites so it will be difficult for me to give a fully-comprehensive list! I note that I am asked to give a list of blogs later on in this challenge so I'll leave those aside for now.
Firstly and foremostly, you all know how much I love http://www.gothic-charm-school.com/, so it would be remiss for me not to begin with it. I also love http://www.morbidoutlook.com/, http://www.gothicbeauty.com/, auxiliarymagazine.com and http://www.mookychick.co.uk/.
For hunting down the brilliantly bizarre, everything from stripy hats to steampunk deodorant, I always recommend http://www.etsy.com/; however Goths looking for a bargain can often benefit from a trip to good old http://www.ebay.co.uk/. For music, try http://www.resurrectionmusic.com/, http://www.musicnonstop.co.uk/, http://www.last.fm/ and http://www.yousoundlikearobot.com/.
Day 25 - Did you ever consider leaving the subculture?
Once, when I was about fifteen - or maybe younger. I felt restricted by the all-black-all-the-time wardrobe that my well-meaning babybat self thought would make me a Real Goth, and rebelled against my own silly 'rules' by putting on blue jeans and rainbow gloves and confiding to my best friend that I wasn't sure if I wanted to be a Goth any more. Of course I soon learned that my narrow view of Goth fashion was not the be all and end all, and wanting to wear something pink every now and again didn't mean that I couldn't still be a Goth.
