Welcome to the Gothic Standard!

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, and welcome to the Gothic Standard. We are a group dedicated to the true, diverse Gothic subculture and everything that it is about. This does not, however, mean that only "real" Goths (whatever that's supposed to mean) are allowed to join. But, we will only accept those who we believe are truly dedicated to the subculture, and this includes people of are themselves Goth, as well as all those who love and appreciate us.

How to Join:
In order to keep with the spirit of this group, we ask that, when you join, you tell us a little bit about yourself in the "Note" box. This can include anything from your favorite bands to your favorite stores, to your style, to your favorite artists, authors, or just about anything, or maybe something about your family or education. Feel free to tell us anything, as long as it lets us know that you really are a member (or lover) of the subculture.

About Us:

Our Style:
So, what styles do we love, you ask? That's simple: Victorian, Steampunk, Industrial, Lolita, etc etc etc, the list could go on and on!!

Our Music:
Just like with styles, there are WAY to many good bands to list them all here. In general though, we like a lot of metal, hard rock, industrial, techno...All sorts of fun Gothic stuff XD

For Members:
Please feel free to suggest favorites and submit art!!! Remember, all "mature" art MUST have the proper maturity tags in place, or it will not be accepted. Thanks!

Recommended Links:
Have any suggestions? Know an amazing band, shop, gallery, or other website that just needs to be shared? We'd love to hear them! Share the Gothic-love with us!

Your Dearest Foundresses,
~Madame Odette and Lady Thourne
